We visited Toronto and wanted to live in a nice house from where we could easily get to know the culture and all the must-see places of the city. Even though Richard's house is a bit further from the city center, it is located in a nice Victorian-era neighborhood. Richard was very kind and helpful. Upon our arrival, he showed us around the house and neighborhood, and gave us several folders of different places to visit in Toronto, which I consider a great start that helped us a lot in the beginning. During our entire visit, Richard was on the phone and email, ready to answer any of our questions. All in all, we enjoyed our stay at Richard's house very much, making our overall impression of Toronto absolutely grand.

Response from Richard:
Thanks Michael we are glad that you enjoyed it. Our home is located in Cabbagetown which is considered a downtown neighbourhood, located on the east side. It is a close walk, cycle or transit trip from Yonge Street and the core.

Amazing place and super accommodating. SO pleased that we chose their place to hang out hat for a few days. The backyard is amazing and provides a sense of calm away from the city (when actually in the city). :) Neighbours are nice as well and sushi is RIGHT around the corner! Streetcars are VERY accessible as well. Just rounded out a perfect experience in Toronto!

Richard is the perfect host! Easy to contact, speedy w his replies, generous w his descriptive responses. Having not been to Toronto since I was a young child - I was completely in the dark about location, community, and unrelated ... Airbnb. This is a fantastic location w all the comforts of home! Clean, organized, and beaUtiful! I spent mornings in the gardens sipping coffee and planning the days while my kids slept late. And while they were up enjoying wifi access, I slept in a super comfy bed. This is a great one, folks. If you're looking for a Toronto Airbnb, this is it! Cabbagetown is the perfect location, easy walk to downtown, easy access to streetcars, and fantastic home and hosts! So glad to have met them too!! 6 stars in a 5 star rating!

This is a delightful spot - good neighborhood, close to lots, but quiet enough to feel like you're away from the hustle and bustle. The house is lovely - beautifully furnished and welcoming. There are two spacious bedrooms, each with a bathroom, spacious living and dining areas as well as an outdoor deck and gorgeous garden. We felt at home immediately and our hosts left all necessary and relevant information for our stay. I would recommend Richard's cottage without hesitation. A great find!

Great stay at the lovely cottage downtown Toronto over Christmas - looks just like the pictures. The place was cozy and festively decorated - the fireplace was a nice touch. Hosts were easy to reach and took care to acquaint us with their neighbourhood, which is accessible by public transport and convenient. Very positive first experience "airbnb-ing" - a very big thank you to our hosts for a wonderful stay!

Gay couple seeks urban experiences close to major cultural attractions, restaurants and parks. Love visiting a city and seeing it as a local does. Need a Queen-sized bed and not keen on cats and comfortable in cities and other languages.
