                                                                what we got , is a cheap corner shower. I was very disapointed. I would appreciate a refund of at least 50$. The rest of the suite was as we expected.

                                                                Hello Michel, It appears that you have confused this with the bathroom from the another suite. The bathroom is exactly as shown. We are happy you enjoyed your stay, but find it a bit unreasonable that you are using this forum to coerce some kind of refund from us.

                                                                Perfect choice for a perfect stay in toronto !

                                                                Alexandra K.

                                                                We spent a very good moment in one of the suites ! It is very spacious, well decorated and is very closed to the city center. We loved our stay !

                                                                Location, Location, Location!

                                                                Dan S.

                                                                Every year my family takes a short trip to an urban area within driving distance of our home in the Chicago suburbs. This year we decided on Toronto, and I started looking for places to stay. If you drive to cities on vacation, you know the main problem: Either you stay at a hotel in the city and get hammered for parking costs, or you stay in a suburb and spend all your time (and good moods) driving in traffic.

                                                                Enter this property that I found on VRBO. The location in the charming Bloor West Village neighborhood is outstanding. You're a five- to ten-minute walk from bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants and shops, and that walk on Durie Street takes you past cute properties with beautiful gardens. Best of all, Bloor West has a couple of subway stops, so getting to all of Toronto's tourist spots is easy. We parked our car when we arrived and didn't open the doors again until we drove home. The included parking space in the back of the property makes things so easy.

                                                                The property was perfect for our family: Two rooms, the big kitchen and living room gave us plenty of room to spread out. The clean, modern look felt like home, and the owners made it easy to get in touch should we have needed anything (we didn't). Locks worked via code, so no worries about keys. This is a comfortable spot to take in all Toronto has to offer, but you'd enjoy taking a day just to enjoy the neighborhood. Outstanding find.

                                                                Good Place To Stay

                                                                Sheila V.

                                                                The property was well appointed, clean and the kitchen well equipped. The location was excellent; quiet street, two minute walk from a park and a 10 minute walk from the subway (2 minutes to connector bus if you can't walk to subway), grocery store and Bloor Street shops. It was also close to the beautiful High Park.
