“Perfect for us!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our second visit to Tony's place and once again we had a very good stay. We were visiting our son studying in Toronto during the Easter break. Our teenage daughter was with us, and the one bedroom basement apartment with a double bed in the den was prefect for us.

Besides Tony being an excellent host, these are what we liked about the apartment.
1. Location was fantastic, just a minute walk to the streetcar stop. Really helped as we were not driving.
2. Well furnished with a fully equipped kitchen. Washer and dryer included.
3. Lots of shops and restaurants, some really nice places for coffee. Supermarket is about a 5mins walk so groceries was not a problem.
4. Tony usually stocks up on essentials like bread, milk eggs etc, which is a thoughtful gesture.

The apartment is not super luxurious and probably the bathroom is a bit small, but it was not an issue for us. As it's a basement apartment, there is really not much of a view and does not have much natural light, but once again this did not bother us. It was sub-zero when we were in Toronto, but the unit was warm.

I would certainly recommend this place and we would stay there again if we visit Toronto.

“Perfect vacation rental, recommend to everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We (3 adult, 1 toddler and 1 baby) stayed three days in this vacation rental and we are very satisfied with it. First of all, the apartment is very comfortable and convenient, it has everything you need to cook and to wash, and even the fridge is full with eggs, milk, juice and other stuff so that you don't need to buy stuffs for your breakfast next morning. We don't even have time to watch DVDs and play Wii games. We are very thankful to Tony who run the rental and prepared everything! Secondly, the location of apartment is very very good! it locates in a quiet street, but you can get to a lots of restaurants, supermarket in 5 to 10 minutes, and you can go to streetcar in 3 minute to either go to subway station or downtown. You can also walk there in 15-20 minutes. Overall, we will recommend it to everyone and next time we come to Toronto this is the way to go.

“Great Stay, Everything we needed, and much more than we expected!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A large group of us stayed for the long weekend in February to visit the zoo, science centre and other classic sights of Toronto and just loved staying with Tony and Steve! As students, it is really difficult to find a place that accommodates so many of us for a reasonable price and this was perfect! We were right downtown so we could walk to many places, there was a very cute breakfast place (Chew Chews) down the street, and there was plenty of room for us all to sleep without feeling cramped! On top of the great location and extremely reasonable price, the place was way more than we expected. It was very quaint and well equipped with all the kitchen supplies you may need as well as a TV with movies and games, they even provided a bottle of wine, very thoughtful! We were not as co-ordinated as we had hoped when arriving and departing and they were very accommodating, allowing us to check in unexpectedly and leave our bags in the apartment while we were at the car show, despite being after check out time. We will definitely go back and suggest this place to anyone we know going to Toronto and looking for a comfortable place to stay.

Liked best: Very well equipped with bedding, space, and kitchen supplies (pots, pans, utensils, and basic cooking things like a bit of flour, sugar, and tea/coffee)
Liked least: The door was a bit sticky and the beds were not the most comfortable but nothing terrible or hard to deal with. The rest of the apartment more than made up for these little things

“All we hoped for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

we needed a 2 bedroom apartment and after looking at many in centre of Toronto discovered this one which we thought might be a bit far out for us but we were very happy we chose it. Cabbagetown is a great area to stay with lots of character and some great eating places. There was ahandy supermarket nearby. Travel into city centre was by tram which we enjoyed (although you could walk it - we did once). We felt completely safe walking around in the evening.
Tony was the best landlord we have encountered. We had email exchanges beforehand and he was very helpful with local information etc. and great to chat to.
The accommodation was very comfortable and the kitchen and fridge well stocked.
Overall it was excellent value for money

“Wonderful Hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This was a real treasure - located on a quiet street close to shops and pubs with great food. We had no problem finding our way around; streetcar was a short block away and subway a pleasant walk. Tony and Steve were kind and welcoming, even let us host a small party in their back garden for a few friends to celebrate our daughter's convocation from university. We would definitely return!

“Great historic Cabbagetown apartment, very close to City Centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed here for a few days Feb 13. Great apartment, very comfortable, with excellent facilities. Tony welcomed us with groceries, which was much appreciated, and also recommended local pub 'House on Parliament', which we ate at twice - great food and really useful to get local suggestions. We loved both historic Cabbagetown, and the proximity to the city centre, about 15 minutes walk. 15 minutes walk will also get you to the historic Distillery District, which we liked, and the St Lawrence Market, which we loved. I would be happy to recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again if I return to Toronto.

“Fantastically appointed and well located rental unit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We have rented units in several different countries for between 1 week and a month. This unit and these landlords were far and away the best! The unit is well located and clean near many restaurants, cafes, and services, although kitchen and unit are so well equipped you may not want to go out. They have thought of everything you may want or need including restaurant recommendations, well stocked and appointed kitchen, a DVD library, etc. We arrived well into the evening on a Friday night and Tony had even picked up some groceries to get us started in the morning for breakfast! Fantastic unit, location, and personal touches.
