Toronto House Rental Photos and Description

Family house, perfect for kids and adults alike!

This cozy three bedroom house offers ample space to sleep, to play, to dine with family, and to relax. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and a full bathroom, complete with a double sink and a full size washer/ dryer. The bathroom-and-a-half opens onto the main hall for ease of entry and onto the Master Bedroom for added convenience.

Relax in the seclusion of the library on the Main Floor, or join the gang in the kitchen/ family room while a meal is prepared. In nice weather, take your coffee out to the front covered veranda and watch the world go by.

A main-floor powder room adds convenience. Sliding glass doors open out to a backyard with a swing set and a trampoline for kids and adults to use (great exercise!). A backyard gate leads to a lane and a parkette with a climber where children play.

Pay parking at a reasonable rate is available in a lot across the street.

Steps will take you to shops on Danforth where you will find for sale anything you may have forgotten to pack.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

We live and work in River dale and have done so since 1995. We have fostered the growth of our local street community with potlucks, block parties and parkette clean-ups, and developed a safe community where neighbors wave hello and look-out for each others safety. We take our visitors' satisfaction with their booking very seriously and strive to develop repeat clientele that come to get to know the place and return because they love it!

Andrea purchased this house in 2003

Riverdale is equally a home to families with children and dogs and cats as it is to singles looking for a convenient central Toronto lifestyle. Withrow Park offers a unique retreat from the hustle of busy shops with its tall trees, expansive grassy lawns and multiple playgrounds.

Enjoy a tight knit community in the heart of the city, where there is never a dull moment.

Greektown

  • 4 of 5
Andrea was very friendly and helpful. The house is located very near to the subway, restaurants and shops in Greektown. You won´t need a car in Toronto. It´s even no problem to walk to downtown (half an hour).

Owner's Response: It was so nice to meet you, Silke, and your lovely family. I think you are right about not needing a car. I have spent my life in Toronto and have travelled to work and shop on my bicycle for the past 24 years. The central location of Riverdale is what drew us to the area, as well as the wide range of cultures and foods that you encounter in a typical day there. Thank you for your review. We hope you will return again soon!

Great Location! Great House! Great Family!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 months here and the house was fantastic and our hosts even more so. The house was very well kept and we had loads of room for our family of 4.
The location is right on the subway (so you don't need a car) but street parking is readily available if you need it. It is in the heart of the Danforth with fantastic restaurants, shopping and all the amenities one needs.
I would highly recommend this property for a short or long term stay.

Owner's Response: It was our great pleasure to host you and your family! It is great fun for us to meet new people, and in this case neighbours doing a renovation where they had to temporarily move out to another space. We would encourage others from the area to consider our house their "home away from home" while work is being done on their own house or while a house is being staged for sale.

All the best to you and your family!

Perfect place to stay while our house was on the market

  • 5 of 5
We needed a 10 day rental in Toronto to stay in while our house was on the market and this place turned out to be the perfect spot! The hosts made sure that we had everything we needed and the house was a great set up for our family of three and our two cats. It is in a great location. Very close to the Danforth and all it has to offer. Park around the corner and trampoline in the yard are great for kids. All in all, a great 10 days. We'll consider renting again as the need arises.

Best place to stay in Toronto

  • 5 of 5
We went to Toronto for 4 month in family.
Our 4 kids even went to school there.
It's a great neighbourhood to live. Close to all services. The subway (Bloor line, Pape Station) is only at one block. It's in the middle of Greek Town, a lot of good Mediterranean restaurants. If you plan to stay there for a while, there are good schools around.
But above all, the owners are are really welcoming, friendly and generous. We had a wonderful time there !! We will miss them ...

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! Part of the pleasure of renting out our place is meeting our guests and getting to know a little about their culture and values. We especially enjoy learning some of the languages of our visitors and sharing conversation or a casual meal. Thank you to you and your family for enriching our lives! Please return again!

Excellent location, feels like home !

  • 4 of 5
We spent one week at Andrea and John's house. We were pleased to be welcomed by the owners and their children who where charming with our own children !

House well situed, 5 minute walk from subway station. interesting neighborhood, commercial area just a minute away.

Excellent house for kids. They can enjoy themselves without fear of being to noisy or having to "secure the area" (nevertheless, parents have to their job !).

We found the house well equipped. Great surprise, no TV ! We just enjoyed other activities that we don't take the time to do normally. Perfect for us !

We would certainly rent this house again if we had to come back to Toronto.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words. We were so pleased to meet you and your lovely children. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Please return soon! When we are in town, we like to show guests around or welcome them by introducing them to neighbours. One of the things we love about sharing our home with others is meeting new people and learning more about their culture, language and traditions.

Thank you for an amazing stay in Toronto

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of five staying in this lovely house for 11 days. The house was very clean, nice and very spacious. We had everything we needed from towels, tissues, toilet paper, soap, shampoo and kitchen utensils, in addition to extra pillow cases and bed covers. Andrea and John were kind enough to offer us the use of their bikes and any other toys and games they had in the house / garden. Andrea even gladly provided us with tea and sugar when we asked her for some.
The house is located in a very nice and friendly neighbourhood in Greek Town. We were 2 minutes' walk away from all the restaurants, shops and pubs in Danforth avenue, and 2 minutes away to the subway station that took us straight downtown within 25 minutes.
On our last day, Andrea and John organised a get-togther with all the neighbours around. We had an amazing time and enjoyed ourselves a lot. All the neighbours were very nice and welcoming, and they were willing to answer any questions we had. On the day we left, Andrea offered to drive us to the airport - which was very nice of her.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone staying in Toronto. And we will definitely stay there again on our next visit.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. What a beautiful family and so friendly and respectful of your lodgings. We hope you return one day! We love about VRBO that we meet families from around the world and learn a little more each time about people's cultures and traditions. We hope now to travel to Jordan one day. So sorry we couldn't get 'dad' on the trampoline too! Next time, right? Make sure to contact us for a visit if you are returning to Toronto and cannot arrange to stay here for any reason.
