SOARING SKYLIGHTS, GREAT OPEN PLAN! SUNNY OASIS, HEART OF CITY

Toronto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

WALK SCORE = 100 out of 100....a WALKERS PARADISE! Soaring cathedral ceilings and 3-sided gas fireplace add great ambiance to this loft in the sky! Great open-plan kitchen with four comfy bar stools are super for entertaining.

Living room opens to great deck with south and west facing city-scape! Create sumptuous meals on your own gas barbecue!

The upper portion of this great suite is basically a one bedroom apartment on the third floor of the building. The second bedroom, with full ensuite bath is on the level below where you will also find a washer/dryer and a powder room. This division is great for couples sharing. Both bedrooms are a good size. One bedroom has a split king size bed which can be set as a regular king size bed or can be split into 2 single beds. The other has a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have flat screen tvs. The master has 2 window-seats overlooking the street.

The kitchen area is fully equipped and has a third skylight.

The dining area can seat up to six. We prefer rentals of 4 people, however, there is a queen size sofa bed being added in July, so we will be able to accommodation up to 6 people. Three bathrooms!

We have no onsite parking but rent underground spaces in the the apartment building just across the street.

The neighourhood is pleasantly tree-lined and very pretty, a mix of single family homes, apartments and a few businesses in Victorian homes...an interesting mixture.

There are so many restaurants and shops to walk to. Walk to the famous Yorkville area, shop the trendy Bloor Street designer stores, or walk to the Eaton Centre. Most Toronto hospitals are within a 5-15 minutes walk.

The ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), the University of Toronto, and Ryerson University are an easy walk.

This apartment is normally rented on a monthly basis but we are willing to rent shorter term, minimum 3 nights, when it fits between longer rentals. We will not normally reserve a very short stay too far ahead if it appears likely we can rent monthly.

Our monthly rates are quite reduced from our nightly rates!

Also, if you just require a one bedroom suite, we can close off the second bedroom (or possibly put you in another smaller suite in the building) . We also have access to other furnished rental suites that may be available, so please email your dates and we will try to accommodate you!

Please phone me if you have questions. DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY to anyone that asks. We only accept credit card or email transfers. We do not offer discounts for payment in full up front. We only require one night deposit by credit card to confirm your booking. Balance is due on arrival. Beware of scammers!

Keywords: Unique apartment in charming 5-plex near Bloor/Yonge/Yorkville and the Church/Wellesley Village.

3-sided fireplace, sunny deck, 2-level.

Skylights, open concept. 2 Ensuite bathrooms + powder room and laundry.

I currently live outside Toronto in Muskoka with my newly retired partner. We have both cottaged here for many years. I purchased my 5-plex in Toronto after a divorce in 1997 and have run a business known as Gloucester Suites. We rent fully furnished, executive suites, for short term stays. I have very much enjoyed the many guests we have had over the years, a few have become good friends! I still get a Christmas card every year from my first guest! After a few years of successful operation of Gloucester Suites I expanded my service to include representation for private owners, so I actually have an inventory of possible rentals. Most private owners prefer longer rentals, but some are flexible. (Don't worry about what the calendar says! Please send me your request!)

Paulette purchased this apartment in 1997

This a GREAT 5-plex in a vibrant area of Toronto. I purchased it after I divorced and was looking for a good investment. I have thoroughly enjoyed running my furnished rental business for over 10 years! Although I now live outside Toronto I very much enjoy my frequent visits to the city.

I love that I can walk to many shops, restaurants and entertainment. So nice compared to my rural location where I have to drive everywhere!

On November 30, 2011 the NEW, spectacular grocery store, LOBLAWS, opened in the former historic location of Maple Leaf Gardens! It is just five blocks away, has parking and any food item you can imagine. An exciting shopping experience with a huge touch of history and memorabilia! Visitors can actually stand a Center Ice.......a big blue circle on the floor!

EVEN BETTER THAN THE PHOTOS

  • 5 of 5
This property exceeded our expectations. The location was great, convenient to public transportation and with lots of restaurants and shops within a couple of blocks. We found the apartment spotless and quite charming...even better than the photos... with lots of natural light on the main floor. Having the two bedrooms on two different levels worked really well for us. I appreciated the well-stocked kitchen and comfortable furniture. We enjoyed eating meals on the deck.

The rental process, from inquiry to arrival to departure, was smooth and easy, and Paulette responded quickly to our questions. I've used VRBO a number of times, and this has been our best experience. I highly recommend this property.

Try Lola's Kitchen and the Indian restaurant next door to Lola's--both great choices with many gluten free options.

UNBEATABLE

  • 5 of 5
Our party of five (four adults and one baby) stayed for 10 nights during April, and we couldn't have been happier! Paulette was fantastic to deal with through the whole process, from enquiry right through until the day we left, and was particularly kind enough to arrange a portacot (Pack n Play) and high chair for the little one at no extra cost.

Our flight arrived in the early evening, and Paulette arranged for the key to be left in a secure location so that it was no problem arriving at night.

The location was so convenient, especially with the subway a short stroll around the block and a gourmet supermarket close by – there’s absolutely no need for a car. The Rogers Centre is a little further away, but still a pleasant walk (no need to get the subway). The supermarket was very handy as we cooked in most nights in the full kitchen, although on the nights where we did want to eat out, there were lots of great options to choose from – pizza, ribs, and a lovely breakfast spot called Smith.
The beds and pillows were really comfortable, and there was plenty of towels and linen, which came in handy when we had a visitor that stayed over on the sofabed. It was a spacious apartment, and we really didn’t feel at all like we were living on top of each other. It’s a much better option than a hotel room.

It was beneficial having the bedrooms on separate levels, and the little deck out the back was great for relaxing in the sun. The internal stairs are a little steep, so I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone with mobility challenges, but other than that, I would recommend the Gloucester Suites to anyone wanting to stay in downtown Toronto.

Overall, the photos and descriptions provided on the website are spot on, and also importantly, it's very CLEAN!

A GEM

  • 5 of 5
We chose this apartment primarily for its location - an easy 10-minute walk to our son's family home. That said, the apartment is within walking distance of almost everything one could possibly want. The area abounds with restaurants, excellent shopping and cultural activities. A car is definitely not required.

The apartment itself met all our expectations. Located on a charming street with many beautiful old homes, the apartment itself feels like a private home. The design is brilliant with high ceilings and open living spaces. We hosted a brunch on the 24th for 12 people and made Christmas dinner for our immediate family on the 25th. There was room for all and cooking was easy in the well-equipped kitchen.

The two bedrooms are large with comfy beds, ensuite bathrooms and loads of closet space. Our grown-up daughter joined us on the 23rd and she had the bedroom on the lower level which afforded her space and privacy. Given its central location, the apartment is unbelievably quiet at night.

Paulette, the owner, was helpful and warm but aware of the need for the detachment that goes with the paying guest/host arrangement. She also graciously returned a jacket to us that we inadvertently left behind in one of the many closets.

So thank you Paulette for providing a place for us to have a wonderful family Christmas.

PS

There is a huge deck off the living area which would be a real bonus in warmer weather.

EXCELLENT SPOT !!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two children and I rented this apartment for a week over the holidays this year and were very happy with it. The 2 level layout was perfect and the unit has all the comforts of home. GREAT location and the owner is excellent to deal with. The only downside was that not all of the TV channels came in on the TV clearly. In the big picture this is minor and we plan to book the apartment again for future travel to Toronto.

GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I shared this apartment with two friends visiting from Germany. It was a perfect accommodation for us! The 2 large, comfortable bedrooms are on separate floors and each has an attached full bathroom. The 1st bedroom (with attached bathroom) and the separate half-bath are just inside the front door. The half-bath also has a washer and dryer (with laundry detergent) which was very helpful. Upstairs is the 2nd bedroom (with attached bathroom), kitchen, dining room, living room and deck. Great privacy!

The unit seemed far more spacious than I would have expected from the pictures. Paulette thought of everything. The apartment is fully equipped with anything you could possibly need while on vacation - even umbrellas! She provides very nice dishes, utensils, pots, pans, cooking and baking necessities, BBQ grill, extra bedding, towels, etc.

The neighborhood is great! We ate at several bars and restaurants within a few blocks and were never disappointed.

Paulette was very accommodating throughout the reservation and check-in process. We met a neighbor and her adorable daughter who also helped us feel at home. We thoroughly enjoyed winding down after the events of our day while having drinks on our deck at night.

One of our German friend's was celebrating a birthday while we were there. He wanted to try Bison/Buffalo while in Canada. I was not having much success finding a suitable restaurant on my own. The apartment manager, Connie (lives next door), immediately researched the options throughout her seemingly expansive network and found the perfect solution for us!

Weslodge Saloon at 480 King St. West (near Spadina) www.weslodge.com OMG!! It's actually a classy, upscale restaurant and we all agreed that it was some of the best food we've ever had throughout our world travels. Thank you Connie!! We actually ordered second orders of the Bison Ribeye (Small Hot Share) and Weslodge Burger to share.

SUE

  • 5 of 5
Quality apartment in a fantastic location. The spaciousness of the apartment was a pleasant surprise, as was the thoughtfulness in the way it had been equipped. Paulette has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and trouble-free. Checking in and out was straightforward, even though we arrived out of normal operating hours. The location is excellent, with easy access to the subway and a number of markets/grocery stores within easy walking distance (not to mention an endless choice of restaurants and other food outlets). The area felt very safe at all hours of the day. I unreservedly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Toronto.
