If you want to stay in Toronto, but feel like you're at the lake, then this is a great place! Walk out the front door and you're steps from the beach, beach Volleyball courts, and a boardwalk for walking or jogging. Lots of local shops and restaurants 2 blocks away on Queen Street - including an LCBO and groceries nearby. Rent a small car if you want to use the garage (it's more like a large shed), but otherwise there's cheap ($3) overnight parking about a block away. The place was very clean and well-equipped with the exception of a hair-dryer - bring your own. Nice to have fully laundry and a yard as well. Check in/out was a breeze. Great communication. Will return for sure!

Response from Erin:
Hi Terry, thank you for the feedback, it's always good to know what guests actually expect. I hope everything was ok with your car. I do specify on the listsing "small to medium sized car" for exactly the reason you mentioned, although one guest did manage to get her SUV in there; not sure how tho. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and hopefully I will be hosting you and your guests in the future. Erin

We stayed a month and loved it. It was in a perfect location - we could walk every day by the lake but easily get into the city. Erin and her husband Jordan were quick to respond when we had questions. The House was a perfect Toronto Beach “cottage.”

Went to Toronto for a three day trip with the five of us. Perfect house in a good location. Very easy drive into downtown, takes only 10 minutes. Waking up in the morning and drinking a cup of coffee on the beach in front of the house was perfect. House was clean, bed where made nicely and communication with Erin was very smooth. Recommend it to anyone who wants to explore Toronto!
