Bill is a retired biomedical engineer, and Beth is a retired hospital Administrator. We've lived in Toronto most of our lives. We love the city, and we enjoy sharing tips on the best restaurants and most interesting things to see and do in the city. We like to travel, and have often used apartments listed on VRBO. This experience has given us the ideas that we have incorporated into our apartment listed here. We have tried to anticipate all the needs of travelers looking for quiet comfortable accommodation.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 1987
Why Owner chose Old Toronto
Our home is in a quiet residential neighborhood, with good access to public transit. Restaurants, grocery stores, a supermarket and a liquor store are within walking distance. We are 5 minutes walk to St Clair avenue, which has a wide selection of restaurants serving foods of many cultures. There is a Saturday organic farmer's market within 10 minutes walk. Two excellent French patisseries are within 10 minutes walk, and a restaurant that Now Magazine says has 'possibly the best wood-burning, thin-crust pizza in town' is also 10 minutes walk away.

Couldn’t be better
This property was clean, well appointed, in great location with wonderful access to transportation. Bill could not have been more accommodating or responsive. I will tell anyone coming to Toronto to stay here. Thanks Bill for making my stay so terrific.
Thanks for your kind review, Merlinda. As you mentioned, we are close to good public transportation. We are a three minute walk to the Ossington bus which comes every 5 minutes in rush hour and every 7 minutes at other times. It is a 5 minute bus ride to the Bloor subway.
We had a lovely time in Toronto even though the weather wasn’t the best. Bill was there to meet us and show us where everything was in the apartment when we arrived. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to make our breakfast each day.
The apartment was a welcoming place to come back to each evening after spending the day shopping. We were able to kick back and watch tv in the evenings with our glass of wine. Luckily there is a grocery store just a few blocks away that you can walk to to pick up anything you might need.
The bed is very comfortable and there’s lots of space to store your clothes. There is also a sofa bed which is comfortable as long as you like a firm mattress.
Bill was kind enough to get an on street parking pass for us. We were always able to find a spot, often just around the block. We would definitely stay there again when we visit Toronto.
beautiful house, quiet street. Minutes from lots of great shops, easy public transit access
loved it! 100% will rent again
Very comfortable & clean
Perfect location for buses, subway or walking.
Nice and Cozy!!!!
This apartment was great for a solo birthday trip to Toronto! Nice and Cozy, nice residential block, and close to public transportation. I was nervous at first because the apartment is in the basement of someone’s home, but Bill was very welcoming, explained the area and suggested some great places to go and eat. The bed felt like you were in a 5 star hotel, the bathroom had all new appliances (heated floor was a plus) and it was very well maintained. Location is residential so it’s quiet enough to relax, but not to far if you want to go downtown and do some hanging out. There is a little deli store on the corner which sells tokens for the bus. If you don’t want to spend a bunch of money on Uber’s, you can get downtown and back to the house on public transportation for about $6(CAD). Again, great place, great owners and I would definitely stay here again!
Gorgeous apartment, convenient location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bill's place! The home is adorable, apartment is very clean, brand new fixtures in bedroom and bathroom, kitchen is stocked with everything you need including teapot. It was great to have laundry facilities in home - we were able to do laundry on our last evening to returning home with clean clothes! Location was perfect for us - short commute to everything you want to do/see in Toronto. Would love to stay here again. Highly recommend!
