About the property

Spacious studio apartment sleeps (2-4)

Monthly rentals are preferred in this charming, spacious (600 sq ft) and bright pied-a-terre is in a lovely home on a quiet tree-lined street in the beautiful Summerhill neighbourhood. Just steps from some of the city's best shops and restaurants, it is a short walk to Yorkville, Yonge and Bloor, the ROM, and the university. Three subway stations are just a 5 minute walk from the house. Getting around couldn't be easier. And yet, it is so quiet, you won't believe you are just a block from Yonge Street, and the beautiful Ramsden Park with public tennis courts and an outdoor ice rink (in season). Cycle through Rosedale, wander around the fascinating Mount Pleasant Cemetery where some of Canada's most famous men and women are buried. Have a latte at the excellent cafe on the corner and watch the world go by.

The newly renovated suite is perfect for singles or a couple. Make breakfast and light meals in the equipped kitchen. Take a relaxing bath in the jacuzzi tub. Do laundry in your suite.

It is the perfect spot from which to enjoy your stay in Toronto.

Outstanding hospitality and fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time in this lovely little light-filled apartment. The location was perfect, only a couple blocks to a subway transit station, even closer to some amazing restaurants, a Whole Foods market on the day we just wanted to fend for ourselves and in a safe and walk-able neighborhood of beautiful homes. The apartment's amenities were everything we needed and quite comfortable, the wi-fi worked great, the coffee and tea she chose were outstanding ;-p We would not hesitate to recommend this spot to anyone!

A comfortable and clean place with great location

  • 5 of 5

I've had a great time staying here for a month. The place is very clean, it has all necessities you might need to feel yourself at home, and Diane was very friendly and helpful.

Whether you're coming for a short vacation or you're looking for a long-term stay, I would definitely recommend this place as one of the best in this area.

Charming, spotless, light-filled apartment

  • 5 of 5

Proved perfect for us as we needed a place for 4 nights with our Toronto home under renovation. Fantastic, heart of the city (near Summerhill) on a gorgeous tree-lined street with Victorian houses on either side, street parking for our 2 cars and a patisserie 2 blocks away. Light filled designer apartment with kitchen, full laundry and great shower. Will keep top of mind when a 'staycation' is required (with parks, top restaurants and boutiques nearby). Have already booked the apartment for my mother's visit next spring (when the private garden will be in bloom and terrace will be at its best).

Great place in Toronto

  • 5 of 5

This studio is exactly as advertised: comfortable and convenient! It's in a nice residential neighborhood, with a short walk to the subway. There is on street parking available for a (very) reasonable price (just ask Diane for the info), and it doesn't alternate sides - so you can leave you're car parked for your entire stay and use public transportation (like we did). The pastry shop on the corner is awesome (but sadly wasn't open on Sunday). All in all, a great experience.

Fantastic accommodation in one of the best neighbourhoods in Toronto

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this apartment for 6 weeks while doing a student internship in Toronto. At the very beginning of my correspondence with Diane, I saw that she was very reliable, helpful, and easy to deal with. This pattern definitely continued throughout my stay in Toronto. I also hadn't realized just how fantastic the accommodation was and where it was located until I got there. This is a basement suite in a house situated in the Rosedale/Summerhill area, which is evidently one of the nicest neighbourhoods in the city. It is also happens to be a very short walking distance from a Metro station and an even shorter walking distance from the bustling Yonge Street, which is one of the major cultural stretches in Toronto, full of shops, restaurants, and bars. As a student who needed access to both the University area and Sunnybrook Hospital over the 6 weeks, I found that the apartment was in an ideal location for my needs. The suite itself was very clean and well-furnished, complete with basic appliances, and an insuite washer and dryer. The bed was particularly comfortable! I also found the price to be very reasonable, considering the location and the quality of accommodation. I would highly recommend this apartment to Toronto visitors and would gladly stay there again during my next trip.

Gorgeous apartment in Rosedale Toronto

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this gorgeous apartment in a safe, quiet, yet central area of Toronto. I stayed for two weeks while doing some research nearby, and it was the ideal apartment to come home to and relax in each evening. I was truly grateful for it. First of all, it appeared exactly as it did in the pictures online. Also, Diane, the owner, had thought of all the little details that make your stay so much more pleasant - coffee, lovely fluffy fresh towels, shampoo and so on in the bathroom, and everything beautifully clean. The bed is very comfortable, the air conditioning was great as it was very hot in Toronto, and it was great to be able to cook with lots of utensils and quality cookware. Diane was very knowledgeable about the local area and gave great recommendations. She was also the ideal host because she balanced helpfulness and warm friendliness with being non-obtrusive. I will definitely choose this apartment again, and recommend it to my friends too.
