Whether you're just bar hopping on Ossington or shopping--on Queen Street West, Toronto's mecca of hip and only seconds away--taking in a festival, or taking advantage of the neighborhood's legendary nightlife, it doesn't get more convenient than this.
Compact but with more than enough space for anything you need (and much larger than a hotel room!), the unit is decorated in high style, floors, groovy designer furniture, appliances, east-facing windows, plus a sunny balcony to watch the sun go down and watch the patio downstairs come alive. The separate bedroom divided from your private kitchen and living room by a long hall, so the place is best for a couple or two good friends. Unit is professionally cleaned and spotless for every guest. Laundry is steps away.
The apartment is furnished with all the toys you need, from high speed WiFi to a HD flat screen TV and ipod dock complete with surround sound

We own the Tapas bar downstairs & took over the apartment and renovated it so our friends, clients and family could have private lodging when in town
We stayed at the property 3 years ago and it hasn't really changed. We really liked our stay then and as well this time with our 7yo boy in tow. He wasn't bothered with the late night music from downstairs and I'm often up till then most nights so it wasn't a bother for us. Touring Toronto with our kid from this location really set up how close it is to everything with multiple parks, playgrounds, splash pads, wading and swimming pools all around us in easy walking distance. We had some issues with wifi but neighbors let us use theirs, lol, and just never found time to bother Sandy about it :D My husband noted that the one thing that would tip this off the scales for us is a larger, more comfortable couch in the living area for when we wanted to chill out in the A/C watching tv :)
It is a generally nice place in a cool part of town. Overall a great experience with a few minor inconveniences that didnt bother us much but should be noted for future tenants. Bar staff were helpful and knowledgable about the area. Fantastic restaurants line Ossington and streets close by. It's above a cool bar called Reposado, so expect noise from about 10pm-2am. Noise is not too bad, like a noisy neighbor listening to loud jazz and rock music. However our second night (a wednesday) it sounded like a live band was playing in the building, about 4x as loud as other nights. VERY far from subway stations, it is difficult to use the TTC as a first timer to get anywhere from the apartment, so we used uber which was very quick and cheap. Some of the kitchen lighting fixtures didnt work/needed new bulbs. Wifi can be touchy to connect to but is strong once connected. TV/cable is great once running but TV takes ~10 minutes to turn on. In my opinion this place is best for people who want to be out and about for most of their stay. Exactly what you expect for the price.
If we were between 18-22 years old, this is the perfect place..great location close to bars & restaurants. You get to the apartment thru the outside bar and up fire escape and into kitchen where you are greeted by a mop and broom. You will not notice the difference between the pictures on VRBO and the reality..its just a place to crash. With no window in bedroom it's really great for sleeping late into the day. The heavy metal playing downstairs wouldn't keep you awake, because you would be down there enjoying it.
Having an inebriated person knock on your door at 3 am and then discover him asleep on the concrete floor of the porch next to yours when you go outside to sit on the fire escape in the morning wouldn't be scary to you. Would be pretty funny and you'd probably miss the morning anyway!
So what if there is no welcoming list of neighborhood information..like restaurant recommendations, nearby parks and attractions, or subway locations..at least there is a scribbled note telling you the wi-fi code and that the television takes 10 minutes to come on.. but does not mention that there is no remote to change volume or stations. You aren't going to watch tv or venture off this cool street anyway.
Only 2 light bulbs in kitchen and a fridge door that slams into the cupboards..so who needs a kitchen anyway?
Getting in touch with the landlord both before arriving and after getting there..impossible! Good! You wouldn't have to interact with authority and who needs toilet paper and soap or to know why the internet is not connecting or where the aforementioned remote is anyway? You are young and can roll with the punches and enjoy the environment and the affordable accommodations.
If I were rating this rental on the cost, the location and how friendly Sandy (the owner) was - I would give this 5 stars. Unfortunately, I need to get to sleep before 3 am - and for 3 of the 4 nights of my stay, the booming bass from the bar below kept me up until after the bar closed. Even sound cancelling headphones were no match. :(
My boyfriend and I stayed two nights at Sandy's place while doing a cross-country move. The place has parking out back which is a huge bonus in downtown Toronto. Sandy was always really quick to respond anytime we had questions or needed anything. The apartment itself was a fair size and had all the amenities one would require, fresh towels, hair dryer, clean bedding and any kitchen utilities one would need. It was nice to be within walking distance to so many different restaurants & lounges. Perfect location. We would recommend staying here if you have a short/medium stop in Toronto. Thanks Sandy!
