Coming to enjoy and explore Toronto? Here on business? Tired of hotels? Planning a family trip and want to save on accommodation and dining?
This might just be exactly what you have been looking for...
Welcome to our Scandinavian-style house, conveniently located in the heart of trendy Queen St West: only steps away from parks, shops, entertainment, the best cafes in town, major attractions, the Lakeshore, spas, hospitals, and the financial district.
HOUSE: Just call it your home. Find everything that you need for a short or longer stay.
The house has 3 bedrooms on the second floor. Each of them includes an individual closet. Front master bedroom is on a sunrise side (sun blackout curtains are on for those who wants to sleep in). At night, enjoy the lights of the city and the view of the CN Tower right from your bed. The middle room is modeled as a children's room and - here is where kids squeal with delight - has a built-in bunk bed. The crib is also available for a child under 8 years old. If you are traveling with kids, help yourself to all the baby essentials, toys, etc. The third bedroom is smaller in size and has a queen-size luxury foldout sofa-bed. The room is overlooking the backyard.
The bathroom on the second floor has a walk-in rain shower and is child hot water proof. The second bathroom, Washer & Dryer are in the basement. If you want to treat yourself to an at-home spa experience, soak in the vintage claw foot tub on the lower floor.
Open concept main floor combines dining area, living room and stylish kitchen with a breakfast bar. Living room has a 47-inch flat screen TV, surround sound system through the house (Don't miss when Crosby scores a goal even in the washroom!), blue-ray DVD player, XBox 360, Kinect, vinyl record player, an extensive music collection both on vinyl and CDs. You are welcome to enjoy them.
Netflix is available through Xbox.
The dining area has a big table that easily seats 6-8 people. Great for a hearty family dinner or a games' night. (Choose from a big variety of board games on the shelf next to the table)
The kitchen is where things happen in this house! Enjoy modern appliances (gas stove, oven, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, stovetop kettle, blender, etc) and lots of space to cook. A few things you won’t find elsewhere: professional espresso machine, manual juice-maker, gas BBQ grill on the backyard.
Backyard is a sunny privately enclosed space for you to relax and unwind. BBQ, sun tan, take a shower! (outside hot/cold water shower),gaze at the stars at night to the crackling of the fire... For those travelling with kids, it is safe to leave them there to play while you are making dinner, as it is walled off from other properties and there is no back exit.
ECO-FRIENDLY: Cleaning products, detergent are made from natural ingredients. For the same reason there is no A/C in the house, however every room has a ceiling fan.
