Great family holiday in Toronto at Arts on Seaton!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a great week-long stay at Arts on Seaton in Dec 2014 while attending the World Juniors. The house is beautiful, clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and got in touch during our stay to see if we needed anything. There was plenty of room for everyone with 4 beautiful bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms (plus main floor powder room). The location was great! We walked 10 minutes to the Eaton Centre to get the subway and it was a quick ride to the ACC. Also visited the Aquarium, CN Tower, Casa Loma, Nathan Philips Square, Queen St. West, etc. Enjoyed eating at Jules Bistro, F'Amelia and Cluny's Bistro as well as watching the games at Real Sports Bar. Lots of restaurants, shops within walking distance and if the weather had been nicer we would have spent more time walking around exploring the neighborhood. We didn't rent a car and didn't need one to get around - even visited family in Pickering using the GO train. I would highly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Family wedding in Toronto

  • 5 of 5

We immediately felt welcomed and supported in this lovely and homey Victorian home. We had 4 couples staying in the house and we all had private space as well as a lot of space for interaction. We even found a scrabble board for a family scrabble competition. The location is very convenient for public transit and we walked to the Eaton center. The art was delightful and we found making our meals and lunches easy in the well equipped kitchen. We especially enjoyed getting fresh food in the St. Lawrence market. I highly recommend this property.

Lovely Spacious Downtown Location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay - the house is spacious, clean, well equipped and thoughtfully furnished with some lovely and fun artwork. Irina's instructions were easy to follow and we appreciated the central heating in unseasonably cold weather!

The location is ideal for exploring Toronto, we walked a lot but found the streetcar at the top of the road and the nearby subway easy to access. The whole family (age range 79-10yrs) absolutely loved our stay .

The local area is a little "gritty" but we felt comfortable at all times and found the street quiet and loved the quirky Victorian properties on it.

Family time in Toronto

  • 5 of 5

We all really were impressed upon opening the doors of this grand art-filled home. It was clean, well-equipped and even stocked with kitchen supplies that allowed us to put together dinner a couple of hours after arrival.

Irina's well prepared instructions made for an easy entry, and all was in order for us to settle in quickly. This spacious home provided a great accommodation option for our family who had converged to attend a special wedding, and the location made it especially convenient for the comings and goings that went with the weekend.

Thank you for letting us enjoy this lovely vacation home. M & B and family

Huge Home for Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Arts on Seaton was a fantastic home for our family vacation (2 adults & 4 teenagers). The process to rent was very easy; the owner responded to requests quickly and everything was handled very efficiently. While most of the reviews comment on the size of the house, we still couldn't believe how huge it was! Perfect for a larger group. The layout was wonderful: bathrooms & bedrooms on 3 levels provided the right mix of privacy and togetherness. The bedrooms were all huge and so nicely decorated. The teens loved gathering on the top floor. Beds were comfortable, everything was clean and in good working order. I just can't say enough about the beauty & tastefulness of the home.

The location of the house was very good for walking to transportation and various attractions. It is a very urban location, and we did see our fair share of characters. We always felt safe and walked everywhere -- we're from a large city so used to the elements of city living -- but it definitely is a neighborhood still in transition.

Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend Arts on Seaton to friends and family. Thank you Irina for sharing your beautiful home with us!

UK visitors for family wedding

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely superb house in a beautiful, leafy area which is in the process of gentrification but still has the character and feel of a 'real' neighbourhood. It is also very conveniently located for the downtown and the regular streetcars provide easy access to everywhere. The house itself is stunning and very spacious and was ideally suited to our needs. We were a party of seven adults over from the UK for a family wedding. It was a lovely place to come home to and relax in after all the excitement of the celebrations. We even had a mother raccoon and her two babies sleeping on the pergola in the back yard! We also loved the black squirrels which were everywhere - we don't see that kind in the UK.

The local people were incredibly friendly and helpful with directions etc. The owners were very obliging if we had any queries but were not intrusive. The rooms were spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The younger generation loved the attic room and the luxurious bathrooms! Would recommend this property to anyone who loves old houses and appreciates having a lot of space, which you would not find in an hôtel.
