All windows have soft white curtains but also have a second layer of black-out curtains. These completely block out the sun, so if closed when you go out on an extremely hot day, they keep the apartment so much cooler.
The apartment/ loft is the complete 3rd floor of my house. You have a locked door to enter the stairway to the loft.
You enter the main house with a separate key. You share the hallways up until your locked third floor stairway entrance.
I provide a place to store luggage, beside the kitchen under the angled ceiling roof. So they are out of your way.
There is no clothing cupboard, but rather, a stunning antique carved brass rolling rack.Curtains can be pulled to hide the rack and also separate the bedroom off from the rest of the loft.
Besides the comfy bed with new mattress, there is a double futon bed that unfolds . It is a sofa otherwise.
Internet is high speed and unlimited, so enjoy!
TV is cable and instructions are included.
I try to keep costs down and the loft a good value, so appreciate guests being "green"..meaning turning off lights, fans, A/C , heaters blasting when not home. It's a small space that's quickly heated up or cooled when you return. I will handle recycling and garbage as I realize that it is confusing to guests!
There is a BBQ in the back yard on the main floor for anyone's use.
The main floor backyard is for all to enjoy. There is a BBQ for all to use. There is parking but it must be mentioned when booking so there is no overlap of guests.
Interaction with guests
Access by phone, text, email at all times. Personal interaction as requested by guests desires and needs.
Cell is best as I'll always get texts and be able to reply immediately.
Other things to note
A very hip cool area but in a friendly neighbourhood , great mix of older residences, some restored, others with great history and architecture specific to Toronto. Right downtown close to everything, but safe, quiet and a walking area.
Respectful of the charming antique decor and house. Be green and turn off lights, fans, appliances when leaving the premises. Enjoy all this inviting house has to offer while respecting the neighbors and neighborhood.Enjoy!
Fashion designer with a stunning ornate Victorian home. The basement apartment is furnished reflecting my fashion and design sense. Not a beige on beige box!
I work and hang out close by and love the cafe culture, walking neighborhood and beautiful and diverse architecture. I love the European lifestyle and this is the closest thing to it in Toronto. A bunch of different cuisines in every block. The newest and coolest restaurants chock a bloc with mulit generational ethnic family run joints. Patios and brunch spots galore.
