GORGEOUS RIVERDALE 1 BDRM WITH PRIVATE ENTRANCE - FREE WIFI

Toronto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The apartment is the lower level of our Victorian home in the heart of Riverdale. We completely renovated our home in 2010 - gutted right back to the exterior brick wall! Everything is new and gorgeous. The apartment has cherry floors, pot lights, good natural light and heated floors.

With a separate and private entrance at the side, access is easy with your own code, no keys required. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped with IKEA cabinets, butcher block countertops, stainless steel appliances, as well as a coffee maker & grinder, microwave, toaster oven, pots, pans, dishes...

The sitting room has a flat screen television with cable and a built-in DVD player. The comfortable pull- out sofa has a queen size mattress.

The bedroom has a queen size bed, with quality linens, and a full wall of closets. With a nice deep soaker tub and a rain shower the bathroom is sumptuous with a heated, porcelain floor. We also provide a hair dryer, an iron and a small table top ironing board.

For extra convenience you also have your own stackable washer and dryer. There is a small outdoor sitting area but we are a one minute walk to one of the largest parks in the city, complete with swimming pool, tennis courts, skating rink, hiking trails and an awesome tobogganing hill!

We have lived on this street for 15 years and absolutely love it. It is a nicely treed street and a quiet area and yet we are 10 minutes to Yonge & Bloor. It is beyond convenient to a million facilities. We are 10 doors from 2 streetcar routes to go downtown - the Eaton Centre (10 mins), U of T (20 mins), Royal Ontario Museum (15 mins), The Art Gallery (20 mins), the Financial District (15 mins)... An 8 minute walk will take you to the Danforth where you'll find tons of lovely shops, excellent restaurants and pubs and the subway. Every August we have 'The Taste of the Danforth' where over a million people come to sample the varied cuisine of the neighbourhood. A 5 minute walk south and you'll find yourself in the heart of Chinatown east, with excellent grocery stores and restaurants with food from China, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. A 15 minute walk south will take you to all of the trendy haunts of Queen East comprising Riverside, South Riverdale and Leslieville. There you'll also find a 24 hour streetcar to take you east to the Beach or west to downtown and Queen West. We are also 2 minutes to the main north-south highway - the Don Valley Parkway, which takes you to the 401 or TransCanada as well as the major east-west route along the Gardiner Expressway leading to the Airport, Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake. We also live right beside one of the largest parks and ravine systems in the city, where you can walk or cycle for miles enjoying the Don Valley and the river. It's hard to find a more convenient location yet still be in a peaceful location. You'll love it!

Sandra Pate purchased this apartment in 2008

This home is close to everything and yet we're out of the hustle and bustle and noise. We can walk up to the Danforth in 10 mins where you'll find the subway, tons of shops, restaurants and pubs. A 5 minute walk south of us will take you to East Chinatown where you can dine in some of the best Cantonese, Szechuan and Vietnamese restaurants. If you keep walking south, within 15 minutes you'll find yourself on Queen Street East, also known as South Riverdale, Riverside or Leslieville. Here too, there is an amazing array of shops, cafes and pubs. We are also 15 - 20 minutes by transit to Yonge & Bloor, Yorkville, Church/Wellesley Village, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery, University of Toronto, the Beach, the Science Centre, Ontario Place, Toronto Islands, Harbourfront, the CN Tower, Rogers Centre, the Air Canada Centre, the Hockey Hall of Fame... We can get to the island airport in 15 minutes or Pearson Airport in 30 minutes as we are conveniently located near the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway allowing us to travel easily in any direction.

This suite was completely renovated in 2008. It has it's own independent heating system (lovely and warm in-floor heating), new windows with good light, a very nice bathroom with a deep soaker tub and rain shower, gorgeous cherry flooring, a spacious kitchen with good cooking space and new stainless steel appliances, private laundry, a very comfortable queen bed and pull-out couch with queen mattress, excellent closet space, pot lights and complete privacy to come and go as you please. Although it is the lower level of our home, you'll be impressed by how comfortable it is.

EVERYTHING WE WANTED!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful property in a terrific neighborhood. Sandra has outfitted the place with the best of everything - generous towels, comfortable decor, a shower head to die for (I'm getting one!), robes, lovely linens, smart information booklet -- everything! We travel to Toronto twice a year and have already booked our next stay. Easy access to downtown with loads to discover right in the Riverdale neighborhood. And the Rooster coffee shop rocks!

Owner's Response: So glad that you were comfortable and feeling well equipped - makes travel so much better. We have a terrific neighbourhood, everything is here or nearby. The transit to downtown is easy and convenient, and of course the Rooster Coffee shop around the corner is a favourite! See you in the fall. Thanks for your review! Sandra

VERY PLEASANT STAY IN TORONTO

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting an apartment on VRBO, and we could not have been more satisfied with our experience. We had a wonderful stay in Toronto and especially enjoyed this neighborhood. The description and photos of the apartment are exactly as described. The rental was more than adequate for three people, and very clean and well-maintained. I was concerned that since it's a basement apartment, it would feel dark, but it didn't bother us at all. It had everything we could possibly need to cook our own meals, and Sandra provided many useful maps and suggestions on things to do in the area. The street is very charming and family-friendly, filled with lots of gorgeous homes and it was a joy to walk around. As the description states, there is a lovely park just steps away that is perfect for watching the sunset. Don't miss the coffee shop around the corner (the almond croissant in particular). It was an easy drive to downtown Toronto, and parking was never a problem. We stayed with our three-year-old and had no issues. I would definitely recommend to family and friends and would stay here again.

TORONTO EXPLORERS

  • 4 of 5
We've not been disappointed in a VRBO stay yet, and this one was no exception. The flat was exactly as represented in the pictures and well appointed with all of the basics. This is definitely a 'neighborhood' setting with people walking their dogs, kids headed off to play dates, and markets/restaurants supported by the people who live here...not tourists. We appreciate that, but this is not the heart of the city, if that's what you're looking for. The good news is that it takes only a 15-30min (depending on time of day) streetcar ride without transfers to reach the hussle & bustle. Sandra was great to work with, and I expecially appreciated having a parking pass waiting for me when I arrived with no effort or additional cost to me.

ART AND JUDY'S REVIEW

Art and Judy's review
  • 5 of 5
We recently spent 9 nights in Sandra's fabulous apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. It would be difficult to think of a single ammenity that she did not provide. Sandra was incredibly helpful while affording us complete privacy. I cannot think of a more perfect place to stay in Toronto.

Public transportation is close by and runs frequently throughtout the day and night. Sandra provided us with the names of some wonderful restaurants both in walking distance and near the Toronto Film Festival, which we were attending.

Sandra's place is a gem!

VERY CLEAN AND ATTRACTIVE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
What an enjoyable stay we had at this apartment. It is as clean as it looks in the pictures, and the bathroom is lovely. We were given codes for the doorways which made it nice not to worry about keys. The neighborhood that it is in was very nice, and we utilized the trolley cars that stopped nearby as well as the park. The owner answered all of my emails quickly. It is just so nice to have a full kitchen and extra space when traveling with kids!

GREAT FOR A BUSINESS TRAVELER

  • 5 of 5
I was in Toronto on business and I get tired of eating in restaurants. This was a perfect compromise for me. I was able to cook meals in a well stocked kitchen and if I wanted to eat out I was close to a lot of great restaurants. The apartment is well appointed and comfortable and the location was good. Nice quiet neighborhood with a park close by for walking or running. This will be a must stay place on my next visit to Toronto.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your great review! We love our neighbourhood, it's incredibly convenient to public transit, the park is amazing with the city skyline and all of the facilities in it and the shops & restaurants on the Danforth, East Chinatown and Leslieville/Queen St. East are some of the many reasons why we have lived here for 15 years. See you on your next business trip!
