Found Posh digs after a few hours surfing the web and it was well worth the effort. First time in Toronto but we will be back and very likely seek out Posh Digs again as easy to find, lovely quiet area (yet 10 mins from plenty to do on College or Harbord). Good parking too so leave the wheels and use either street cat (get it from Bathurst about 100 yards away) or brill value subway 10 mins walk north and its about a 10/15 min ride down to Union via one change. PS. I'd bin the car for the whole time as driving is a mare!!
Posh Digs itself is very comfy, clean with all mod cons and setting it all up very easy and hassle free from the owners. Big plus this as other VBRO renters wanted paying by secure cheque which was a pain! Loads of good places to eat in both College (south by 10 mins walk) or 10 mins to the top of Markham with some really funky bars and restaurants....check out the Southern Accent Restaurant, cracking grub. We holidayed with our two girls and their boyfriends (all in their early 20's) and they had plenty to keep them entertained at night on College, Sneaky Dee's Bar being one.
Posh Digs may be in Little Italy but there's plenty of variety close by with Korean, Chinese, South American and Greek all close by. Posh Digs is advertised as being in a very quiet and safe area and I would totally agree. In fact the whole of Toronto has the same atmosphere and we never at any point felt insecure or even uncomfortable anywhere or anytime within the city so travelling in the evenings or later still is not a problem so don't miss out on the free entertainment on the Harbour front at night and all the bars and restaurants that come with it.
Toronto is a lovely friendly and clean city and despite the building work going on downtown we'd love to go back. Highlights for us being CN Tower, St Lawrence Market (Kensington aint up to much!), Toronto Island, Harbour Front (and the Amsterdam Bar and all its beers!) and surprisingly for me the Eaton Centre and Ice Hockey Hall of Fame!
Oh and Ps, did I mention the traffic! Just beware at rush hour to give yourself plenty of time.....particularly if heading to the airport for that flight home!
