Nick purchased this apartment in 2007
This property is clean, functional and affordable. If you want a good base serviced well by public transit but don't want to be smack in the middle of downtown, you would have picked the right place. With our without a car, the Beach neighbourhood is a safe community with tons to offer and well situated for a quick jaunt to downtown or a short walk to the Danforth GO station for a seamless train ride to Niagara Falls.
We stayed for a week in early August 2016. The apartment was clean, modern, and comfortable, especially the beds. There was adequate off-street parking. The neighborhood is about 4-5 miles away from the central downtown area, easily accessed by public transit (more on that below). Woodbine Beach was also only a mile or so away. The best part about this property was how easily we got around the entire city. The Gerrard-Main bus stops literally right across the street from the house and runs every 20 minutes. It is a three-minute bus ride to the Main Street subway station (I walked it a couple times). From there you can get to the lake front, the Air Canada Center, the Rogers Center, Ripley’s Aquarium, CN Tower, Eaton Centre, Dundas Square, The Royal Ontario Museum, and Casa Loma. We also went to the Ontario Science center, but that required transferring to a bus (it was no big deal). The subway system is easy to figure out, and all necessary routes are easily acquired via the TTA trip planner on their website. My point in saying all this is that, while the apartment is a few miles out of downtown, it did not feel like we were out in the boonies; we felt connected to the city center. The neighborhood was very nice. We tried to assess the neighborhood via Google Earth street view, but that did not do it justice as it was much nicer than we expected. It is on a gentrifying street with well-kept homes. It was safe and pleasant. There is a small convenience market around the corner. There is a Loblaw’s grocery, a Tim Horton’s, and a McDonald’s a few blocks away on Victoria Park Ave. There are many more businesses just a bit further to the north on Danforth, including a bank and currency exchange. There are many places to eat, drink, and shop within walking distance on Kensington Avenue to the south. Nick and his wife were gracious hosts and was available to us via text or phone. We would surely stay there again.
We stayed in this 3 bedroom suite for 3 weeks - a family with 2 young kids (a toddler and baby) - and the hosts, Nick and Nena, were the best hosts anyone could ask for. Any requests (eg. cot, high chair) were arranged for without question and contact via email or phone (before and during stay) were promptly addressed and very helpful.
The home itself was accurate to its description and was equipped with everything that you would need. We found the property clean and, whilst a bit old, was well maintained. One of the best things about the place was the temperature regulation - the home was ALWAYS at a comfortable temperature despite how hot/cold it was outside. The air conditioning at this time of year was excellent and we were well pleased to come home to a comfortable place at the end of the day. Other highlights include:
- Close to large supermarkets, all in walking distance
- Close to public transport and accessible (we had a double pram!)
- Key-less entry (enter with a code so could check in at any time and didn't have to worry about losing a key when we went out)
Overall, excellent customer service and I would recommend to a friend or relative. Thanks again, Nick and Nena!

I had a great stay at Nick's 3-bedroom apartment. The apartment is spacious, very clean, all furniture modern, and the place is well equipped and well-maintained. There is also laundry machine and dryer in the basement. So basically everything you need is there, just bring in your suitcase. Nick is a very good host and answered all my questions promptly. This is not my first time at Nick's, I keep coming back whenever I am in Toronto because the places he rents out are great and well-maintained. So I highly recommend it if you are looking for a place to call home away from home. Thank you Nick for everything.
We had 3 whole weeks at Nick and I must say it was super nice. We were two girls who were planning a city break, and are encountered by chance at the apartment of Nick. Even the booking inquiry was great. We were promptly answered every question. Also on site, our host was extremely helpful. The apartment itself was perfectly adequate for 2. It was clean, comfortable and the neighborhood was great. In the garden we had every night visit from raccoons, squirrels and the neighbor's cat. So you imagine a holiday. Thanks again to Nick and we would always like to come back to him.
We stayed there for a week and it was just amazing!
Because we had 7 adults we rent the 3 bedroom suite and also studio apartment, they are both clean and comfortable.
The location is little bit far from downtown but if it's not in winter should be okay. Very nice and quiet neighborhood.
Thank you for everything, we had a great time there!
I had booked the three-bedroom unit for a one-week stay in August, 2013 - but ended up having to cancel our vacation due to illness. When that happened, Nick completely and promptly refunded our entire deposit.
I also want to note that throughout the booking process, Nick was prompt and thorough. He is clearly a thoughtful host who knows how to treat potential guests.
Nick has been a pleasure to work with, and I'm still hopeful we'll get to stay in his lovely house some time in the future.
The Upper Beach is a vibrant community located just east of Toronto's downtown core. Walk to parks, the beach boardwalk or take a stroll along either Queen St. or Kingston Rd to enjoy the many shops & restaurants that make the beach such a sought after area of the city. Take in the annual beach Easter parade or the summer jazz festival or simply hop on to one of Toronto's famous street car's and head downtown in 10 short minutes to explore Canada's largest and most multicultural city. Toronto plays host to a number of international events, including the Toronto International Film festival, Caribana and the Pride parade. This area of the city is well serviced by train (GO train or TTC Subway), bus and of course street cars. Local activities include tennis courts, ice rinks, children's play areas, community centres, libraries, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops and so much more...
