Our quirky, cozy charming wood cottage features a wood burning stove, skylights, access to a tinysunset balcony, and an in house yoga space with yoga swing. All steps from Kensington Market, U of T, little Italy and Bathurst Sbwy Station.

The space

this is an amazingly cozy historic house-it was a warm bed homee for the workers who laboured to build the large brick structures in the hood.
it feels like a west coast home-all colour wood and light- or something out of a hobbit garden.
croft street has an interesting history, but i love telling the story myself...
my guests are welcome to join my yoga classes if things are groovy or book a private session -spaaaaaaa
Bixi bikes are a great way to get around the city

Excellent, clean. If you have mobility issues with stairs it might not be the right place for you. Otherwise it's an interesting place and Kaya was very good at communicating.

Kaya was great with communication and helpful with providing us with tips and suggestions during our stay in Toronto (she went out of her way to provide travel and activity guides!). Her place was clean and conveniently located, making it easy to commute to our planned destinations. Although we only got to chat with her briefly, she made sure we were comfortable throughout our stay.

The place is nice and comfortable, the environment is quiet. If you are fine with an open door to the hallway, then you will like it here.

Kaya was great! She let us check in early and even leave our bags there on check out day. Short walk to Kensington markets which are very hipster and have great food.

Kaya gave me a huge hug when she saw me, which was really nice after a long day tiring conference. Her house is clean and her smile is warm. She replied to my questions very promptly. Very lovely lady.

Great energy at Kaya's place we slept very well. Loved the hospitality, interesting things for my son, and all the recommendations!

Kayas gorgeous cottage in the city is the perfect spot for any Traveller craving a home away from home. The quirky layout paired with Kayas great hospitality makes croft street exactly where you want to come back to after a day of exploring (or for us 2 months of living in a RV). Although the room is open plan and comunal, chances are you'll have the top floor to yourself with Kaya hanging out down stairs ready to dish out any advice you need (She really is the sweetest!!) We will 100% be back whenever we are in the area!!
