Boho style.eco-friendly.well-equipped kitchen.tons of natural light.view of willow tree + lake.24/7 public transit out front-15min to High Park/20 to Ronces+Queen W/20 to subway.5min walk to beautiful lakeshore trail.
Perfect for the independent traveler or a laid-back couple. It is rare to find a bachelor in Toronto that is this big and yet so homey at the same time. While within easy access to public transit and downtown, the location is removed from the hustle and bustle of the city and offers a peaceful vibe and good dose of nature. Being by the lake is a huge plus - you can walk, run, or ride a bike all the way from the west to east-end of Toronto.
I try my best to maintain a toxin-free space by furnishing with natural and/or second-hand materials, and by using all natural household cleaners and personal care products, either homemade or store-bought. I would really appreciate guests that share the same values and can honour this way of living during their stay.
You may make use of everything in the apartment, except for the turn table. The tuner/radio is free to use.
I do not own a microwave, toaster or toaster oven. Sorry for any inconvenience!
There is access to a washer and dryer in the basement, but they are coin-operated.
You may lock up your bike in a storage room which is located in the basement of the building next door. You use the same key to enter that building as you do to enter mine.
Interaction with guests
I will not be present during the guest's stay.
Please be clean and treat my home and belongings as you would like yours to be treated, with respect and care.
No pets, please.
No smoking, please.
Please remove shoes at door.
*I will leave behind a list of "house rules" that are generally common sensical, yet nonetheless worth clarifying just so that we can both be clear and at ease when it comes to expectations.
Thank you for your cooperation! :)
