The space
The room is a private slanted ceiling hide-out with plenty of natural light on the second floor of a charming & cosy house, located at Queen West & Bathurst in Downtown Toronto.

The room has a double bed with warm duvet and extra quilt for the winter. There is also a small couch in the room for lazing and reading, a little antique writing desk nestled in the window nook and an in-built closet. The room has wireless high-speed internet, hardwood floors and it's own heating vent. The window is south-facing, so that the sunlight bounces off the bright walls for most of the day to create a really welcoming space.

The House

The original part of this house was built in the late 1800's so it has a bit of Toronto history included in its charm. The front entrance is a cedarwood vestibule and the kitchen and sunroom are all more recent additions to the original building. The sitting room has a huge couch that easily fits a long human for an afternoon nap, and the kitchen/breakfast/sunroom area is a spacious spot for a meal or cuppa. There is a hardwood staircase leads you to the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. You can feel the history in the house despite it being updated and freshly painted.

Where you’ll be

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The neighborhood is packed-full of good things. The house is about 300m from the hustle and bustle of Queen St West, where you'll find plenty to eat and peruse. From the house, it's an easy 10 min walk to the infamous Trinity-Bellwoods park which is great for running, walking and picnicing. Heading west on Queen you'll find yourself in the art and design district where you'll notice independent art galleries scattered along the street amongst boutiques, coffee shops and the odd cheap 'n' cheerful take away store. A tram ride down Queen in the same direction will get you to the The Drake or The Gladstone Hotel - local nightspots for food, drink, theatre and culture.

In the other direction is the colorful and bohemian Kensington market, which is a 10-15 min walk through a (different) park and across Dundas st. Here you can get anything from vintage clothing to mexican groceries to award winning cheeses to handmade crafts. Other than the plethora of fresh fruit, veg and groceries available at the market, there is also a bit supermarket 5 min walk away on Queen. You'll also find the Art Gallery of Ontario an 18 min walk away. If you're a yogi, why not take a free introductory class (or ten) at one of the many nearby yoga studios while you stay?

I'm a professional puppeteer/performer/mask & puppet builder who works in film, television and the theatre. After many years of travel, touring the world and living in the big smoke, I'm happy now to be living in the country and mostly working out of my home/studio. I grew up in the country. So after many years in Toronto, I love spending time at my country home in Calabogie where I can fish off the end of my own dock and hear the loons call.

During your stay

I like to be friendly, but not intrusive. So I'm more than happy to help answer questions or share a conversation.
But for the most part I hang out in my studio behind the house - and the house is available for my guests to make themselves at home.
