Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

If you are coming to Toronto and want reasonable rates in the heart of one of the most vibrant and exciting areas of the city than this is a great deal!

Located in the trendy Little Italy neighborhood of the downtown core, you are in the heart of great dining of all types, cafés, entertainment and all amenities.

Stroll College Street for a gelato, dessert or sit on one of the many outdoor patios for an evening of great food. If you choose to go out, you are as close as 100m from your morning coffee.

You are steps away from public transit that can take you anywhere within Metropolitan Toronto. Within +/-10 to 15 transit minutes you can reach the Metro Convention Center and all the tourist attractions the core has to offer including Casa Loma, the CN Tower, Harbourfront, the Eaton Center, City Hall, museums including the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), Ontario Place, the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), the Theatre district, Entertainment District, Distillery District, Toronto ferry docks and Islands, pro-sports venues and the Hockey Hall of fame

You are within walking distance of many great neighbourhoods, areas and sites including Chinatown, Kensington Market, Mirvish Village, Yorkville, art galleries including the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), trendy shopping on Queen West, the University of Toronto, and so much more.

Enjoy many of the nearby festivals throughout the season including the Beaches and Downtown jazz festivals, A Taste of Little Italy (steps away), Summerlicious, the Dragon Boat races, Salsa festival, Caribana and much more....

The accommodation is a cozy, renovated, basement apartment in a house.

The apartment has a separate entry and contains a full kitchen with an adjoining living area, one bathroom with shower (no bathtub) and 2 bedrooms each at opposite ends of the apartment. Everything you need should be there. The hallway leading to one of the bedrooms and bathroom is 5'-7'/154 cm high (rooms are approx 6'-6'/198 cm high).

This self-contained, approx. 550 square foot furnished apartment in Toronto is perfect accommodation for those who wish the comfort of a home rather than a hotel room.

For location, price and proximity to all amenities you can’t beat it!!

Contact us for rates and payment method and any questions you may have concerning proximity, getting around or anything else you would like to know that can help make your stay in Toronto and our apartment an enjoyable one.

Hospitality is provided by owners who live on the upper level and are available should any assistance be needed during your stay.

A cozy apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Toronto. I don't think we could have found a better area to stay. The apartment is in the middle of everywhere, within a walking distance to a lot of attractions and close to public transit. It is very cozy, private and had everything we needed for our stay. Chris and Mary are wonderful hosts and made us very welcome. My husband wouldn't stop talking about Mary's cookies or the bread she baked for us. Our only regret was that the trip went by so quickly. You can literally stay in that area for weeks and would not exhaust places to explore just in the vicinity of the apartment.

Excellent Deal

  • 5 of 5

You could not ask for a better deal right in the heart of Toronto. Close to the University of Toronto with numerous shops and restaurants within walking distance. Also right on the street car line. Really appreciated the cookies and bottled water!

Another Excellent Stay at Chris and Mary's House!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to return back to stay in Chris and Mary's basement apartment with our 12 year old son based upon our excellent time there a year earlier. Our second stay at their place was again a wonderful experience. They are extremely hospitable and caring people who go out of their way to make you feel at home. When my wife and I thought that we saw all that there was to be seen another great restaurant, cafe or ice cream parlor came into our sights this past summer. My son and I really enjoyed our walks to the University of Toronto campus east on College Street and our strolls south to Dundas Street where we found many great stores. We also came across a great barber named Enzo near Euclid and College. I really appreciated Chris's help with my parking pass. There was always parking readily available close to the house throughout our month's stay. Mary's culinary talent baking us lemon cake, chocolate chip cookies and muffins was greatly appreciated. We were all sad to leave such a relaxing place. We want to thank Chris and Mary for another excellent stay at their home!!!

I had a great time in Toronto and this appartment attributed greatly to this. It has a lot of space and everything I needed. Shops and restaurants are around the corner in this nice part of town (Little Italy is fun!). Thanks for a very nice welcome (muffins!) and stay.

We cannot thank Chris and Mary enough for the wonderful hospitality and comfort provided during our lovely stay in Toronto.We were made very welcome from the outset, with regular supplies of bread, cakes and cookies from Mary throughout our stay. It honestly felt like home to us as the excellent facilities enabled us to settle in to the accommodation immediately. We can recommend this to anyone - you will not be disappointed. It's also important to realise that the apartment is ideally situated in the great community of Little Italy,and all the shops needed for self catering are right on your doorstep. Furthermore, Downtown is easily accessible by bus or on foot. We will never forget our first trip to Toronto and have so many wonderful memories - the accommodation provided by Chris and Mary is foremost amongst them. Thank you so much.

A Pleasant Return Back Home To Toronto

  • 5 of 5

My wife, eleven year old son and I decided to use VRBO as a means to find accommodation for our summer holiday back home in Toronto. We were extremely pleased with everything about the accommodation. After reading all of the reviews, my wife and I were excited to see the basement apartment which is located in an exciting part of Toronto. The place lived up to all of our expectations. The photos and words listed on the VRBO website are an accurate description of what you will get when you stay at this wonderful place. Everything in the basement apartment was well-maintained and it was very clean. The owners Chris and Mary went above and beyond the call of duty helping my wife, son and I during our month's stay in July. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend and relative. We loved eating at the local Italian restaurants. There is everything located near this beautiful property - laundromats, a hardware store, banks, pet stores, grocery stores, a liquor store, a beauty salon, a barber shop, a flight centre, a radio station - YOU NAME IT AND IT IS THERE! We were so pleased with this place that we made another quick booking days upon our arrival back to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where we live and work. Thank you Chris and Mary for making our return back home to Toronto a pleasant one. I almost forgot to include Mary and her amazing baking. We cannot wait to see both of you next summer!!!
