Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1full bath, 1 powder room , sleeps 4

Decked Out Digs is just one of the many unique suites that are part of the Posh Digs Toronto collection of fully furnished short-term rentals in Little Italy.

This 2 bedroom suite sleeps 4 comfortably. The open concept living room/kitchen and dining room comes complete with a gas fireplace. There’s even more space outside in your own private garden with a deck and gas BBQ.

Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and completely stocked cupboards filled with dishware, cutlery and cooking utensils make it easy to prepare any meal.

A washer and dryer are also included in the suite along with a full bathroom and powder room.

The Decked Out Digs is 1 of 4 fully furnished suites in a classicToronto Victorian mansion. Over a 100 years old, the house has been fully renovated to include all of the modern conveniences you’ve come to expect but still keeping that old world charm. Each suite is private with it’s own entrance and all fully self-contained. There’s also free parking -1 per suite at the rear of the house. That being said you may not even need a car as public transit is a short walk down the street.

The suite is located on a residential tree-lined street in Downtown Toronto. The neighbourhood is known as Little Italy, it’s safe and family friendly with parks , cafes, and restaurants nearby. It’s a 10 minute walk to the Annex on Bloor street and the Bloor/Bathurst subway and 2 minutes to the Bathurst street car.

Everything is within walking distance including restaurants, bars, cafes, Sam James Coffee House, Starbucks, grocery stores, pharmacy, liquor store and public transit.

The restaurant choices nearby are varied-from Italian to Sushi, and hard to resist. There’s everything from 5 star to local legends. You can choose from the city’s favourite veal sandwiches that are bigger than your head to menus filled with locally sourced ingredients, prepared and plated by some of Toronto's finest culinary artisans. The folks that make the veal sandwiches are artisans as well, just a different kind of art.

Some of Toronto's other popular neighbourhoods are also close including Little Korea, Chinatown, Trinity Bellwoods and Little Portugal. From here you can get easily to some of our other great attractions like the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and of course the CN Tower. Niagara Falls is a great day trip that’s about an hour and half drive away. Even more convenient, skip the drive, and take one of the many tour buses that go there every day.

It's all about neighbourhood living here. You're still downtown and close to everything but you're not surrounded by the hustle and bustle.

If your travelling with a large group and you'd like to stay together you may consider renting more than one suite. We do get a lot of groups like wedding parties, convention attendees etc., that do book the whole house.

We do not live in the property, but do live a couple blocks away so we are close by if you have any questions. We are the owners and manage the properties ourselves.

If our calendar appears booked during the dates you'd like for this suite, we do have others you can enquire about on Homeaway 940811, 940812, 940816, 3015218, 3021303, 219340

This includes other short-term rentals in the same neighbourhood close to this location. We have a variety of fully furnished suites to fit every budget from a simple bachelor suite all the way up to a luxurious 3 bedroom home.

CHECKING IN/OUT : There are no keys to exchange as all of our units use a coded keypad entry system. The combination code is on a timer so it

does not work until check in time which is 3pm.

Check out time is 11am.

Sorry we can’t accommodate early check in or late checkout

Because it becomes a logistical challenge for our

Cleaners and new guests arriving etc.

CHILD SAFETY: We welcome families and kids of all ages.

Please keep in mind the stairwells do not have baby gates.

If you have toddlers that are in danger of falling down the steps please

consider this when making a decision to book with us.

While we do our best to make all of our apartments as safe

as possible for our guests they are not baby proof.

You can rent all forms of baby equipment from this company and they will deliver and pick up.

Please note regarding booking online: If you are paying online through Homeaway or VRBO or any of it's affiliate partners we will require a photocopy of two pieces of government issued photo ID plus the credit card used for payment. All the names should match. The reason we have to do this is we need proof that the person that paid for the stay owns the credit card. We have had problems with credit card fraud in the past . Homeaway takes no responsibilities for their online payment process. In the end we are solely responsible for making sure the credit card used for payment was actually owned by the person that stayed with us.

About Arthur

We've lived and worked in downtown Toronto for most of our lives. Our kids go to school in the neighbourhood and keep us pretty busy when we're not working our regular day jobs in marketing.

We personally manage our short-term rentals because we really like doing it. Plus it's convenient as our suites are just around the corner from our actual home.

Arthur purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Arthur chose Palmerston - Little Italy

Our properties are all in older homes in the established neighbourhood of Little Italy in downtown Toronto. We've updated all of our suites to make them as modern and comfortable as possible while still keeping the charm of a century home.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the neighbourhood for a lot of reasons. So much is in walking distance. You don't need to a car, unless you're going to Niagara Falls or any other day trips out of town. Everything else is a short cab ride away. And public transit is also nearby and convenient.

Map

Car: not necessary

Little Italy is a vibrant fun neighbourhood. There's a great mix of old and new. A recent wave of young families from diverse backgrounds have moved in to bring a fresh new vibe to the area. Cool coffee shops, share space with 5 star dining. and funky bars. Everything is within walking distance. Enjoy a diverse selection of activities from taking in the City Sights i.e. Royal Ontario Museum, Art Galleries,CN Tower, Ontario Place, Science center, Air Canada Center and Rogers Center ( formally The Dome ).

Sample a delectable variety of dining delights from all corners of the World, spend a day by the Lake, hop on the Ferry to Center Island and rent a bike or stroll around the Island.

Wonderful location, cozy, comfortable apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is centrally located on a beautiful, quiet street within a 10-15 minute walk of Bathurst subway stop, as well as the bathurst bus and college streetcar. I love the neighborhood, with excellent coffee shops and restaurants. It is also a 15 minute walk to Kensington Market and Chinatown as well as countless other wonderful neighbourhoods to explore. The gas fireplace makes for a cozy upstairs. The beds are comfortable, although the downstairs was a bit chilly. Arthur was welcoming and an excellent host. I would definitely stay here again.

Decent property in good location

  • 3 of 5

Great location. Walkable from/to downtown Toronto and waterfront. Good shops and great choice of restaurants and bars nearby.

The apartment was a good size. The kitchen was nice and modern, bathroom also. The living area was comfortable but the tv controls made it difficult to choose the correct channel to watch. The bedrooms were quite basic with a splash of paint, cheap standalone wardrobes and cheapish flooring. The beds were very comfortable. The 2nd toilet was actually quite dirty.

Overall, a comfortable, spacious apartment in a good neighbourhood but not quite as posh as the 'posh digs' brand might suggest.

Owner's Response: Hi Neal If you had issues with the apartment, like the TV and a toilet that wasn't cleaned properly you should have let me know as I live around the corner-like I say in my welcome email to you, and would have come by to rectify the situation.. Regarding your comments about a "basic bedrooms and splash of paint, and cheap stand alone wardrobes and flooring". I have not had a complaint in the last 6 years of how we have furnished this apartment. As well all of our pictures are accurate and we do not misr-repreresent any of our properties and what we offer guests.

An Oasis in the City!

Charming home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our two teen-aged sons, stayed here for a week and felt very comfortable. The property owner lived nearby and was very helpful. The location is fantastic, in charming Little Italy, right around the corner from countless sidewalk cafes, restaurants and sights. We could easily walk to Kensington Market and Chinatown. Even downtown was within reach by foot though we often took the subway, which was very easy to figure out. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect for our long weekend in January

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is warm, spacious, and immaculately clean. The host was prompt and helpful in all ways. Good location for walking to Kensington Market and Little Italy (and to public transport that takes you all over town) but in a very quiet neighborhood. We will certainly recommend to friends, and stay here again if traveling back to Toronto.
