positive surprise in Toronto!

  • 5 of 5

knowing Toronto to be a large and modern city, we were happily surprised to find this comfortable apartment in a section of the city that can only be compared to a beach town! a block from the actual beach, with a long boardwalk, park area including tennis courts, croquet and lawn bowling facilities (in heavy use each night) and lots of galleries, shops, and restaurants (including a super ice cream spot), it was relaxing and comfortable. At the same time, the trolley, with a stop just at the corner, made downtown easily accessible - far easier and less expensive than needing to drive down. The apartment itself was fine - nicely furnished and comfortable - and David meet us there when we arrived to go over details. He'd stocked the refrigerator with provisions for breakfast and was readily available in case we needed anything else (we didn't).

Would highly recommend this for anyone looking to spend time in Toronto without being overwhelmed by a big city!

5 Great days in Toronto

  • 5 of 5

Great stay, close to restaurants & shops & trolley took you right to the heart of the city! Once you get there no need to drive. Very walkable area, minutes walk to the beach. Bike/walking/jogging path runs for miles along the beach with nice parks along the way.

Will be back soon!

Great find in the Beaches!

  • 5 of 5

In the fall of 2015 we had guests arriving from Europe and needed to put them up for a few days. The Masterpiece Suite was the perfect place for them and they truly enjoyed their stay. Location, ready access to public transport and the ''village feeling'' of the area rounded out the experience.

And we, as ''remote hosts'', loved the fact that we could meet the owners, see the flat and know our guests to be in very good hands.

Phenomenal value

  • 5 of 5

I was wary of the accommodations based on how reasonably priced the apartment was, but it really is just an amazing bargain. The owners were as previously reviewed more than happy to meet us late in the evening and provided everything needed. There is more than enough to do locally, but it's very convenient to downtown as well so a great choice when visiting for any reason.

Owner's Response: Thank you again to all of our guest for your reviews. We have been renovating the patio at the back of the Masterpiece Gallery and will soon be able to offer you access to an outdoor sitting area during your fair-weather visits. We look forward to your return... Enjoy the Beach area of Toronto! Best regards - David & Valerie

Masterpiece suite was perfect for Californians visiting Toronto.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Masterpiece Suite. The apartment is beautiful with a very modern kitchen and bathroom. The location in a nice neighborhood was excellent. There are beautiful parks, shops, and restaurants in walking distance. The beach is a short drive away. The apartment is so comfortable and nice to come home to after a day in the city or at the beach.

What a Wonderful Place ! !

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Toronto and David and Valerie could not have made it more perfect! David met us at the apartment, gave us the introduction tour and even arranged for free parking around the corner for our car. We didn't need the car. The Masterpiece Suite is just steps from the trolley stop and will take you downtown in about 25 minutes. There you can connect to busses, subways, or other trolleys and get most anywhere in Toronto that you want to visit. The apartment is lovely, very comfortable and the location could not be better! Right in the middle of the wonderful neighborhood of "The Beaches," you could not be more at home. You can walk to wonderful restaurants, to the beach, to the boardwalk, to the ice cream store, and tons of unique shops and stores. We absolutely LOVED the neighborhood. Oh! Back to the apartment... besides being in a fun location, it has a great bed, comfortable layout, large bathroom, good shower, well stocked kitchen (even included breakfast items for our visit), and roomy dining area. Even though there are trolley's going up and down Queen street, the apartment is remarkably quiet and street traffic is not a bother. It is upstairs, so it is not for children or people with disabilities. Great for a week for a wonderful get-a-way! ! ! Thanks David for making our time in Toronto so comfortable and so much fun!
