Everything was just right.

  • 5 of 5

David and Vivian had everything in place for my stay including breakfast fixings.

The apartment was lovely, clean and well stocked. The location was perfect with the boardwalk just a block away, nice quiet neighbourhood and great shops. I would definitely book another stay when I'm back in Toronto. Thank you David and Vivian for being such fine hosts.

Immaculate apt. and the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was the perfect location for my short stay prior to a housesit. David met me upon arrival and was very generous with his time to show me around the apartment and review a few technical items (how to use the TV remote). The place was immaculate and the fridge was stocked with milk, butter, yogurt, eggs, etc. It’s so nice not to have to run out and pick up some essentials before the shops close. I’ve used VRBO several times but this is the first rental that I’ve come across that provided items like plastic wrap, foil, cereal, dishwashing soap, first aid kit, shampoo, etc. It’s the little things like this that bring people back. So, thank you David and Valerie for such a wonderful rental and being the perfect hosts.

Perfect in every way!

  • 4 of 5

We wish to thank David and Valerie for the exceptional service and their lovely "Masterpiece" apartment they let us use during our recent trip to Toronto. We only wish we could have stayed longer. It was perfect in every way. I hope we have an opportunity to return to the Beaches some day and we certainly wholeheartedly recommend this clean and cozy apartment to anyone contemplating a trip to Toronto. Once again, thanks for everything.

Perfect base for exploring Toronto

  • 5 of 5

The Beach neighborhood in Toronto is a perfect base to explore the city. The immediate neighborhood had many restaurants, bars, and stores, plus the boardwalk along Lake Ontario. To get the full urban Toronto experience just take the trolley into town. The apartment itself is also perfect. The kitchen is well equipped, the bath is spacious with great towels and other amenities, and the king bed is comfy. There is some street noise from the living room side of the apartment but that nearly disappeared when we closed the door to the living room before going to bed. We were completely delighted with our Toronto weekend in large part due to the great accommodations. One warning to US citizens with no Canadian cell service - connect with Valerie or David before crossing the border to arrange to meet. We did so and everything went smoothly, but I was glad we had formulated a plan beforehand. All in all an excellent choice for visiting Toronto.

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

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!
