Sanctuary in the city! Enjoy your private sunny room with your own bathroom on quiet, tree-lined street. Five minute walk to galleries, parks, funky cafés, great restaurants, cool bars and indie boutiques. 24/7 streetcar 20 mins to downtown.
Love the friendliness of airbnb, but also like a little privacy? Welcome to your oasis in the heart of one of the most fun and interesting neighbourhoods in the city. We are proud of our superhost status and do our very best to make all our guests feel comfortable. This space does not include kitchen access, but you can make simple breakfasts in your room (we both work from home, usually on the kitchen table). Your room and bathroom are at the front of the house with a great view of the quiet, safe, tree-lined residential street. Your cozy Queen bed has a down duvet, all linens are 100% cotton or linen, and there are extra pillows and comforters in the closet.
In your room you have your own well-stocked Tassimo coffee machine (cappuccinos every morning!), your own mini fridge, kettle, toaster oven, a small smoothie blender, an HD TV with AppleTV (including our access to our Netflix account), a small table with two chairs, a Dyson fan for hot summer nights, and separate heating control for the room, so you can be cosy and warm in winter.
The room is bright and sunny in the afternoons, but also has black-out blinds to help you sleep for as long as you need to. There is lots of space for your clothes in the closet and a full-length mirror – you have to step back into the hallway to see your shoes though! We share a hallway with you, but there is a door we usually keep closed between your very clean bedroom and bathroom and our (usually a bit messy) kitchen and living room. This gives you a little more privacy, keeps our curious kids with their sticky hands away from your laptop, and keeps things quiet even if the kids are playing in the living room.
You have primary use of the main floor bathroom. It’s an older bathroom with the basics: toilet, sink, tub/shower, nothing fancy, but clean. There is a hair dryer in the bathroom and along with lots of towels on the high shelves. We also provide soap, shampoo and conditioner and any other toiletries you might have forgotten.
We are family friendly and can lend you anything most things you need (stroller, toys, portable crib, etc.). Kids stay for free in your room.
There are a few cheap parking lots nearby and sometimes one of our neighbours has a free spot we can borrow for a few nights.
This space is ideal for those who prefer to eat out while travelling. It does not include kitchen access, but you can make breakfast or heat things up in your room and we are surrounded by great local cafés and a wide range of restaurants ranging from cheap and cheerful to some of the best in the city.
We love hosting and will be happy to welcome you and answer any questions you have. There is a door between our guest room and bathroom and the rest of house because we have young kids, so it helps cut down noise, keeps your iPhone safe from sticky little hands and means that we can keep your bedroom and bathroom spotless (which is a challenge for the rest of the house!)
Interaction with guests
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
We are friendly, easy-going people who will do everything we can to make you feel at home. We take our cues from you to either give you your privacy and/or sit down with you and customize a map of the neighbourhood according to what you are interested in exploring.
Let us know if you need your boarding pass (or anything else) printed while you’re here.
We usually keep the door to our kitchen closed (becauSe we sometimes work at the kitchen table and to hide our family chaos!). Just knock anytime if there is anything you need, we want to make sure you enjoy your stay here as much as possible.
Other things to note
We love meeting incredible people from all over the world and have made great friends through airbnb, but will also give you lots of personal space. We are family-friendly, LGBT friendly, everybody friendly! Please note that some of the art in your room has some subtle, yet cheeky, gay content.
Please do not smoke in the house.
Please do not bring home guests not previously mentioned in your booking.
If we aren't home when you leave/check out, please lock the front door and put the key through the letterbox -- thank you!
We are artists with a young family who love to travel -- whether it's kayaking off the coast of Vancouver Island, working at a hotel in an Egyptian oasis town or hiking through bogs in Siberia. It's harder for us to get away these days, which is why we enjoy hosting people from all over the world. We speak a little German, a little French, a tiny bit of Spanish, some Cree, and a few words of Russian. We look forward to sharing our love of Toronto with you, helping you have a wonderful stay here and learning more about the world as you see it.
