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.

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.
There are restful outdoor seating areas in the front and back gardens. There is a private entrance to the apartment. Free high speed internet connection via WiFi.
We had an excellent week staying at this location. It was very conveniently located close to public transport and a great neighborhood to explore on foot for newbies to Toronto like us. The Gentles have been renting this space out long enough that they anticipate the needs of any visitor. We had two small children with us who also enjoyed the place. The Gentles were thoughtful enough to provide a few toys for them to play with and an extra inflatable mattress. We would definitely stay there again!
Our stay in this apartment was great. It is located close to a subway station (walkable or easy to get to by bus), and very close to restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, etc. Beth and Bill were very gracious hosts and answered any questions we had. The apartment is immaculate. It is definitely on the small side, although it is comfortable for two people, especially if sharing a bedroom. Beth and Bill provided a twin size air mattress which fit into the apartment nicely, but did make the space feel a bit tight overall. However, we were not spending much time in the apartment, so space was not really a concern for us. I would highly recommend this apartment for a single person or couple who is traveling, or for people who are sleeping separately and willing to sleep on an air mattress. All in all, it was the perfect place to meet our needs in Toronto.
Upon arrival I was greeted by the owner of the property (lives upstairs, which would be a bonus if there were any issues that would need to be dealt with) and given a quick tour. There was a handy binder with information on transportation and local restaurants and services, which I found to be very helpful. The unit was clean, and very nicely finished (it felt like a nice motel room), with quality fixtures and AC. The bathroom was well stocked with towels etc and there was onsite laundry facilities if needed.
I would definitely stay here again if I return to Toronto!
Beth & Bill were very gracious and helpful hosts. The apartment is very clean with all the amenities. In a great location, quiet, and near a great bakery. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Flat was extremely clean and the owners have thought of everything you might need. The location is also great being in the heart of the Ossington/St Claire west neighbourhood with lots of trendy local restaurants and bistros in easy walking distance and very easy access to the public transit system such that you can get anywhere in minutes. We'd definitely book again on our next trip to Toronto.
I stayed for 9 days and was ideal, close to Toronto city center. Many restaurants with walking distance on St. Clair ave.
The suite is spotless, nice bathroom and a kitchen for cooking and would recommend for any couple or single person
looking for decent cost effective accommodation close to the city. Bill the owner was great with good information regarding
the general area and if necessary can be reached quickly, he lives in the upper portion of the house. Everything was clean,
and new like, including linens, etc. hard to go wrong. Would definitely stay again.
