My husband and I spent 11 days at this wonderful property for our wedding anniversary and we had a delightful time.
The first is that the city of Toronto is amazing. It is truly one of my favorite cities in North America. It was our second visit, but because of the location and time we allowed ourselves, we got to see so much of it.
The location of Rocky and Steve's place cannot be beat. While you do have to walk 2 1/2 blocks to catch the train, their condo is very centrally located in a happening and safe part of the city.
The view from the condo is incredible, as mentioned by every other reviewer. You cannot see the CN Tower from it, but you can see the water as well as 2 other sides of the city.
Rocky and Steve are lovely men who were more than happy to make us as comfortable as possible. They checked on us by email repeatedly and they went out of their way to help us come up with ideas to do outside of the city. Rocky even made a surprise visit by knocking on the door (even though it was his place, he didn't want to disturb our privacy) of the condo and then giving us a lovely bottle of wine for our anniversary. It went well with the cheese we had purchased and the rain we saw from the 30th floor windows.
The first night our plane was delayed and we didn't get into the condo until nearly midnight. We had not eaten but, because of their welcoming demeanor, we knew that Rocky and Steve would not mind if we ate something of theirs.
I know others have gone on about the candy closet, so I will not, but suffice it to say, we enjoyed the treats a lot. My husband also enjoyed the espresso coffee maker.
It was not a big deal to us since it was just my husband and me, but do take note that there is a TV in the master bedroom only. Also, if 4 people rented there is not really much space in drawers to put your belongings. Again, for us, it was not an issue since we left our things in the second bedroom, hanging in the closet and on the bed.
It was nice to go back to the condo at the end of each day, as opposed to a hotel (where we nearly stayed), and to wake up to privacy and space. Overall, we heard little noise, much less than most hotels, and were able to rest. The bed is very comfy, by the way.
Overall had a really enjoyable time at the condo and in the city and would love to return soon. In fact, we are film buffs and would like to attend the Toronto Film Fest next year. Here is hoping we can make it.
