About Liz & Art

Proud parents of 4, we are an artistic family living in Toronto.

Easy-going, resourceful and reliable, with a good sense of humour, we are curious to know and knowledgeable about what's going on in Toronto (including the music scene, historic sites, ballet, festivals, exhibitions, sports events, and diverse and innovative cuisine.) We would be glad to share our expertise with you!

Active travelers, we spent a year working in - and exploring with our little one - South Korea, so we understand the needs of individuals who travel for business and pleasure, couples seeing a city for the first time, or families with children, showing Toronto's landmarks to their loved ones.

We strive to make sure every guest feels welcomed, comfortable, and safe in Toronto.

Our first motto is 'Of those things only should one be afraid

Which have the power of doing others harm;

Of the rest, no; because they are not fearful.' (Canto II - Inferno, The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri.)

Our second motto is a proverb, 'Everything that happens in life is for the best.'

If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, just let us know! We will try to meet your needs and accommodate your schedule.

Welcome to Toronto! Bienvenue, Willkommen, Benvenuto, Welkom, 歡迎光臨, 歡迎, 歡迎光臨, ようこそ, 환영합니다, добро пожаловать в Торонто!

Great location, wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I enjoyed 3 nights here for a mini holiday in Toronto. The apartment is exactly as described,well set up and very clean. We did not do any cooking as we enjoyed the many restaurants and cafés in the neighbourhood. Liz answered all our queries immediately. The apartment is in a great location-in close proximity to museums and shopping. I highly recommend a stay here.

Amazing view, comfortable accomodations, great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo for our short visit to Toronto. When we arrived, we learned that we were just blocks from the CNE fair! We had a great time. Owner was helpful and accomodating. I'd suggest other renters read the check-in procedures carefully; I failed to do so and learned there was an expected cash deposit. It worked out fine, just want others to be aware in advance.

This great two bedroom apartment is located in an area with lots to see and do.

Really great apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described, really clean and immaculate. There's an allocated parking space under the building and the owners really looked after us, watching our delayed flight in and waiting for us.

Outside the apartment are a vast range of restaurants and bars and 2 supermarkets within 5 minutes walk.

It's right next to a 501 bus stop where the buses run every 3 minutes into town.
