Stratford House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

The Rundles Morris House, designed by the Canadian architectural firm Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, is available for rent. The house functions as a fully-serviced, deluxe two-bedroom suite. A spacious living room with a fireplace affords views of the Avon River and surrounding parkland. Throughout the property, one will find only the best in designer modernist furniture and lighting fixtures. Both the master and guest bedrooms feature queen-size beds with down comforters and pillows, top quality linens sourced from Ireland, bathroom amenities from Portugal, and so forth. Both bedrooms are private, and have bathrooms en suite. The house does not have an elevator, and therefore is not suitable for anyone who cannot climb stairs.

Housekeeping is included, as well as mineral waters, Nespresso and teas, daily newspapers, wireless internet, and parking for two vehicles on site. The Rundles Lunch or Dinner Menu may be served in the house during restaurant hours. Picnic baskets are available for guests, with advance notice.

Review of Rundles Restaurant:

'On the bank of the River Avon, Rundles is an idyllic spot for pre-theatre dining in Stratford. The room, all grey cement and pale wood, feels like a Mies van der Rohe–designed spa. Chef Neil Baxter, who’s been head chef since 1981, has a flair for the dramatic, in a good way. The tender poached lobster with salmon roe, cubed cucumber, yuzu jelly and dill oil sparkles like a mosaic of multicoloured sea glass and tastes bright and clean. Flawless panfried rib-eye showcases classic training and finesse. At the end of the meal, the server suggests “the famous lemon tart.” The brûléed concoction, studded with toasted pistachios and sided with smooth orange sorbet, lives up to its recommendation.'

The Stratford Country Club golf course, the best golf course in the city, is located no more than five-minutes drive from the Rundles Morris House.

Wonderful accommodation, fabulous restaurant and perfect location. If you can imagine having a spacious and well-appointed house (amazing kitchen, great entertainment area, 2 fantastic bedrooms) next door to a restaurant with a superb menu and excellent wine list all in a perfect setting of Stratford to enjoy theatre, local shops and a very enjoyable walk along the river. Plenty of little touches that make this a very special ‘getaway’. A real treat!
Owner's Response: Thanks Suzie,
We were very happy you could stay with us, and we look forward to hosting you again in future. Sincerely yours,
James & Richard

"For an unforgettable getaway, stay in contemporary work of art, the loft-luxe Rundles-Morris House, Stratford's most distinctive and exquisitely designed address. A deluxe, self-contained suite on four levels, including a full, top-of-the-range demonstration kitchen, the House deservedly features in the Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture. A soaring, three-level atrium is flanked by stairs and intersected by an overhead walkway in this light-filled, architectural gem. Toronto starchitects Shim-Sutcliffe worked with Jim Morris to create this dream home of concrete, warm cedar, and Douglas fir, and Morris and his dashing partner, local Richard Maloney, have spent years painstakingly furnishing and fitting the house with Roblin paintings and Gehry and Le Corbusier chairs... The hosts pay exquisite attention to every detail and nothing is too much to ask of them. The delightful Richard catered to our dietary requests (one vegetarian, one gluten-free) and served a delicious seasonal, healthy breakfast -- stunningly presented fresh orange and grapefruit cocktail plate, followed by a frittata served with local Soiled Reputation fields greens and lightly fried tomato.

The one that you must not miss is Rundles Restaurant. Stratford's standout culinary star sits alongside Morris house, another gem of design. This gourmet haven has been concocting some of the country's finest fare since 1977. On my visit, I marveled over each morsel of gingery shrimp, Dungeness crab, and cucumber roll (pictured), reveled in the succulent duck confit, and was astounded by the tart perfection of chilled rhubarb dessert soup. In a nod to the land of his birth, Morris' wine menu features vintages from descendants of the “Wine Geese,” Irish emigrants who went to France in the 17th and 18th centuries. If you're staying two nights or more with Jim and Richard, book a dinner at their bistro Sophisto for your second night."
