Are you here on business, visiting family or vacation? Our private, cozy and clean apartment is the hotel alternative you're looking for.

Located in the Junction Triangle, the 500sqft suite features a full galley kitchen, 4piece bathroom, living/dining room and separate bedroom. Nearby are parks, cafes, restaurants, public transport and Union-Pearson Express train.

Please read on for more details about the suite before booking. We look forward to meeting you.

The space

The apartment is a large newly renovated basement suite in our 100 yr old house. We are Katrina and Jan, your hosts, and we live upstairs. The location is in an up and coming residential neighbourhood, 15 min walk or 5 min bus ride from the Dundas West subway.

The suite has a private entrance with a keyless entry, is bright, dry and warm in the winter and cool during hot summer days. The bedroom features a comfortable queen bed and the 4-piece bathroom, a full-size soaking tub. Fresh linens, clean towels and high speed WiFi are provided. The kitchen includes a full size fridge, stove and all the cookware and tools you would need to make a nice meal. We also start you off with complimentary coffee and tea!

Ideally, the unit is setup to accommodate 2 guests comfortably. If you prefer not to share the queen bed, the sofa can be converted into a single bed upon request. We can also host 3 people for a few days and would consider longer term stays for during low season (winter months).

When requesting to book, we would like it very much if you share the reason/s for needing accommodation in Toronto. Not only is it nice to know who we're welcoming into our home, we also try to accommodate your needs as much as possible for a comfortable stay.

Guest access

The apartment has it's own private entrance with a keyless door entry and secure lock code. As our guest, you have access to the unit as your own private space. Feel free to come and go as you please, keeping in mind to be quiet between 11pm and 7am.

A laundromat is located 5 min. walk from the house. We provide detergent and a basket to take your clothes over. There is a drying rack in the unit. An iron and ironing board are available upon request.

Interaction with guests

We rented the space for my mother-in-law while she was visiting. She said it was very comfortable and that Katrina was very easy to communicate with. I would recommend this space for anyone looking to secure a room in the west end.

Hello, I'm Katrina. I'm a photographer who loves to knit, cook, and speak danish. I'm finally settled in Toronto in the wonderful Junction Triangle area, an area I like to describe as a hidden gem where there is so much to discover.
Having traveled extensively, I understand how having comfortable accommodations with welcoming hosts can make a trip a memorable experience.
If you stay in our apartment, you'll be hosted by myself, my partner Jan and Trudi, our dog. We look forward to meeting you!
