Riverdale House Rental Photos and Description

Family house, perfect for kids and adults alike!

This cozy three bedroom house offers ample space to sleep, to play, to dine with family, and to relax. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and a full bathroom, complete with a double sink and a full size washer/ dryer. The bathroom-and-a-half opens onto the main hall for ease of entry and onto the Master Bedroom for added convenience.

Relax in the seclusion of the library on the Main Floor, or join the gang in the kitchen/ family room while a meal is prepared. In nice weather, take your coffee out to the front covered veranda and watch the world go by.

A main-floor powder room adds convenience. Sliding glass doors open out to a backyard with a swing set and a trampoline for kids and adults to use (great exercise!). A backyard gate leads to a lane and a parkette with a climber where children play.

Pay parking at a reasonable rate is available in a lot across the street.

Steps will take you to shops on Danforth where you will find for sale anything you may have forgotten to pack.

About Andrea

We live and work in River dale and have done so since 1995. We have fostered the growth of our local street community with potlucks, block parties and parkette clean-ups, and developed a safe community where neighbors wave hello and look-out for each others safety. We take our visitors' satisfaction with their booking very seriously and strive to develop repeat clientele that come to get to know the place and return because they love it!

Andrea purchased this house in 2003

Why Andrea chose Toronto

Riverdale is equally a home to families with children and dogs and cats as it is to singles looking for a convenient central Toronto lifestyle. Withrow Park offers a unique retreat from the hustle of busy shops with its tall trees, expansive grassy lawns and multiple playgrounds.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy a tight knit community in the heart of the city, where there is never a dull moment.

Family Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay with great hosts. We were attending a family wedding and several different parts of our family staying in the house. The house worked very well for us, feeling very much like our temporary home in Toronto. I thank the hosts for allowing us to stay 2 extra days as we were late arriving. This they did not have to do but did so for our great benefit. Thank You.

Owner's Response: It was our great pleasure to have you and your family stay! So glad you could make it your home for your return to Toronto. We are always happy to host families for weddings and other family reunions. For future guests, we recommend this home for wedding celebrations taking places at venues all around Toronto since it is accessible by highway (Gardiner and DVP/ 404) and for all venues in central Toronto and downtown.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

House was lovely and spacious. Great for our family, with bunk bed, trampoline and swings in garden, and proper play area in Parkette out the back gate. Very close to the subway, and excellent shops on the Danforth. Recommend Pizza Libretto. The landlord/lady live downstairs and were always around, helpful, and friendly. We will stay again, God willing!

The best place ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent wonderful week in this very homey and honest house.

We came with three teenage boys and two adult sons. We found plenty of space, well stocked kitchen with dishes, big family table in the dining area. We felt in our element right away. Andrea and John greeted us with milk and pizza (which was devoured by our thankful teenagers in no time). Andrea and John were so warm and very helpful with pointing us to local attractions. They shared their home printer when we needed to print some coupons for museum admissions.

The adult son coming from San Francisco campus life marveled at location and easiness of grocery shopping and convenient access to subway and variety of restaurants.

This is a real gem, Adrea and John made our stay very memorable and personal.

Owner's Response: The feelings are mutual. Such a lovely family, so great to have youcome and stay! We are pleased that your sons enjoyed their time in Toronto. We have found families with small children enjoyed their stay as have empty nesters on a second honeymoon, and even grandparents visiting their grown kids' families in town. Nice to hear that your teen and adult sons enjoyed their stay at the house as well! Hoping you return again one day, --Andrea and John

Andrea was very friendly and helpful. The house is located very near to the subway, restaurants and shops in Greektown. You won´t need a car in Toronto. It´s even no problem to walk to downtown (half an hour).

Owner's Response: It was so nice to meet you, Silke, and your lovely family. I think you are right about not needing a car. I have spent my life in Toronto and have travelled to work and shop on my bicycle for the past 24 years. The central location of Riverdale is what drew us to the area, as well as the wide range of cultures and foods that you encounter in a typical day there. Thank you for your review. We hope you will return again soon!

Great Location! Great House! Great Family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 months here and the house was fantastic and our hosts even more so. The house was very well kept and we had loads of room for our family of 4.

The location is right on the subway (so you don't need a car) but street parking is readily available if you need it. It is in the heart of the Danforth with fantastic restaurants, shopping and all the amenities one needs.

I would highly recommend this property for a short or long term stay.

Owner's Response: It was our great pleasure to host you and your family! It is great fun for us to meet new people, and in this case neighbours doing a renovation where they had to temporarily move out to another space. We would encourage others from the area to consider our house their "home away from home" while work is being done on their own house or while a house is being staged for sale. All the best to you and your family! Andrea and John
