Guestbook comments from the owner

As the first guests of Parkmount, it was a pleasure to host the Schmack family from Chicago. Their enjoyment of the home and surroundings support it as an ideal vacation property.

Was a delight to make their acquaintance and would love to have them back. Great way to make new friends.

Fabulous stay in the city

  • 4 of 5

Our choice of this downtown property really facilitated our stay and time in Toronto. The owner went above and beyond to accommodate our needs particularly for our baby and to make sure we were comfortable. Great outdoor patio and hot tub ideal for entertaining, open concept kitchen, and comfortable beds complete with luxury linens. The location was ideal - centrally located and minutes away from everything. Thanks for a wonderful experience !!!

The pictures aren't à relection of the condition of the house

  • 1 of 5

The house is said to have 3 beds and can have 6 persons but in fact only one of the bed is a double bed, and I mean a double not a queen or a king a double. The 2 other bed are on child bed that can fit maximum 5foot 9 person. The third bed is a uncomfortable mattress with a bar in the middle that fits perfectly in the rib cage. During our stay the owner has entered the house while we where sleeping and while we where not at home. When we've mention to the owner that this was inappropriate I said that it was is right has a Owner to check is propriety has mention in the rental agreement in reference :Quote is for up to six guests staying at the home. The morning that I thought that someone had enter the house and was stealing I found the owner right in front of my bed while I was in the bathroom. After arguing with in that its totally inappropriate for in to enter while we sleep I told me that it was written in the sale agreement :

Owner will occasionally visit to confirm the safety and well being of home and occupants.

Guests are asked to respect and care for the home and furnishings while there.

Nice place to stay in Toronto

  • 5 of 5

Two friend and I stayed here for four days in October. The house is just as described in the photos. It is clean and comfortable, with some interesting and unusual attractions inside, including a working jukebox from the early 1960s. There are comfortable living and dining areas on the first floor, and three bedrooms on the second floor: a master bedroom, a kids bedroom and a study with an expandable sofa-bed. The owner was sincerely friendly and helpful; he's fun to talk with, has a good sense of humour, and surprised us with a gift of a nice Cabernet Sauvignon. The house in on a pleasant, tree-lined, quiet street just a few blocks south of Danforth Avenue, near Monarch Park. This puts it in an ideal location. On Danforth just a couple minutes walk from the house are Ethiopian, Moroccan and Italian restaurants, as well as a great patisserie for breakfast. Just a few blocks walk to the west on Danforth is Greektown, with a lot of delicious Greek places to eat. Also, the Bloor-Danforth subway is a short 10-minute walk from the house, which gives easy access to the rest of Toronto. I would certainly return to this house if staying in Toronto in the future.

Attractive, well-kept house on quiet Toronto street

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our brief stay at Parkmount. The house is very clean, updated, has every amenity, and a large wonderful deck in the back. We enjoyed breakfast on the deck each morning. The house is on a quiet street, but an easy 2 block walk to the subway, and not far (maybe 10-15 min walk) from the trendier section of Danforth. A short block and a half (2 minutes away), at the end of Parkmount is Monarch park- a huge green space, perfect for walking dogs or relaxing. Overnight parking is also near the park, a 2-3 min. walk away (you'll get a $30 ticket if parking in front of the house overnight, or for more than 1 hour during the day). The set up of the house (clean, uncluttered, well-organized) and quiet neighbourhood made travelling with our dogs very convenient. David, the owner, was welcoming and kind. If money was no object, we would definitely stay here again - it's a great place.

Pleasant and Convenient Home Base for Enjoying Toronto

  • 4 of 5

The house on Parkmount is a good combination of old and new. It combines the character of an older home in a nice, safe neighborhood with a beautifully remodeled kitchen, contemporary furniture and a delightful deck in back with additional outdoor living space. Twice we had breakfast at the table on the deck and once we had a sunset dinner, talking late into the warm summer evening. If you have a car, night parking is a half block away in front of the school.The subway is only about a 5 minute walk, and it provides easy access to downtown and harbor front areas we visited. The weekend we visited was Caribana Festival, a celebration of the Caribbean cultures represented in Toronto. We enjoyed several free concerts and an amazing parade. Toronto is a fun city to explore. Don't miss a sunset walk on the beach with (of course) Canada geese floating on the lake, watching the city lights and CN Tower come on. We were also surprised that the lovely countryside and small lakes are so close to the city. We had fun seeing Uxbridge and Chalk Lake. The house on Parkmount was a pleasant and convenient home base for exploring and enjoying the Toronto area.
