Ralph Colin purchased this house in 1995
This property is ideally situated with very close proximity to downtown Toronto and yet located in an exclusive enclave/community with shopping, playgrounds, restaurants all within walking distance
The property is located on a tree lined street with a large / secluded backyard in a very prestiges area of Toronto. The property itself has been fully renovated and tastefully decorated
What a great rental property in beautiful Leaside in Toronto. The house is exactly as shown. The heated floor in the basement bathroom is wonderful.
Linens, pots, pans, furniture,the best we have found in a rental property.
We liked the location because it is away from the concrete jungle but close enough to travel downtown within about 20 minutes.
We easily travelled to Niagara Falls, a couple of wineries,the Distillery District, Art Gallery, Kensington Market, attended a Blue Jays game and more.
We were walking distance to the Starbucks and a Gelato shop on Bayview Ave!
Our daughter lives about 10 minutes away so we easily entertained them and other relatives.
Ron sends such good information, especially if you have never visited Toronto.
We had a great time.
We were very impressed with the house. It accommodated our large family comfortably. The rooms and beds were extremely comfortable, and we were able to sleep well without disturbing each other. The upstairs bathtub is a bit tricky for adults, but the downstairs shower made up for it and we used it to bathe mostly the kids. I found it amazing that we never lacked a thing, anything you could have possibly needed was available. I loved all the appliances. I honestly felt like I was at home, and had always lived here! It was hard to leave! The location was also perfect. We were 10min drive from the heart of downtown Toronto, and 10 minutes from my family's home. It was an easy walk to shops and restaurants off Bayview, but we also trekked up to Young and thought it was easy. The public transportation is also very easy to use. When we won't be staying with my parents when we come to visit, we will love to stay here again!
While holidays should be trouble free, the test of a great host is how he or she or they manage problems.We had a couple of minor issues and Ralph,from three time zones, away was able to resolve them quickly and smoothly.
The house is charming.There was room and comfort for two parents and three teenagers.The porch and backyard were perfect for a summer dinner for ten grownups while the guys went to a Blue Jays game.
The neighborhood is typically Toronto:a quiet enclave close to all necessities and 10 minutes walk from a World Class grocery store (Longo's).
The house is off the subway line but easy driving to downtown.
Thanks again to Ralph for a wonderful time.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your delightful home in Leaside. We were in Toronto for our daughters wedding and hosted a few 'get-togethers' here. The garden was lovely for the pre-wedding pictures and for our small grandsons to play in. The home was clean, comfortable and we love the neighborhood. Walking to the shops along Bayview was great. All three bedrooms were lovely. The downstairs bathroom was the favorite ... but we really appreciated having two for us all to get ready. Thank you again.
a nice, well appointed, clean place. the location is great, but I live around the corner and was staying here while some work was being done on my house. the owner was responsive and accommodating. and the price was fair!
We had a fantastic experience with this vacation rental. We stayed for one week in November 2012 (two couples with three small children between us). The house was immaculate and tastefully decorated, without a lot of nic nacs which was important for us since we had three toddlers running around. Basement was semi-finished which worked out well for us, since the kids could play in the carpeted area which currently does not have furniture (though I believe the owner is planning to furnish it in early 2013). Kitchen is gorgeous and the appliances (including washer and dryer) are top-notch. Backyard is also lovely. Cleaning products and paper products were all provided, as well as some toiletries. Owner was proactive and very responsive to any of our queries -- a real pleasure to deal with. Neighbourhood was great -- lots of little shops and restaurants a block away, and parks and the library within a short drive so perfect for people travelling with kids. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a quality vacation rental in a great Toronto neighbourhood.
