Very convenient location, well furnished, bedrooms downstairs were somewhat moldy.

  • 3 of 5

Grant left very useful information for us to move around Toronto. He also provided us with information even before we arrived. The house is adequately furnished and had everything we needed. The backyard was ideal for cookouts and dinner. The location of this house is perfect since the bus stop is right across and the metro is a 2 minute walk. Grocery stores, bakeries, and ethnic restaurants are within easy walking distance. The only complaint we have is about the bedrooms downstairs - they smelled of mold. A cleaning and airing out of the bedrooms will make this a perfect place.

a pleasant oasis

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a week at this property. It is very well equipped and the owner is very accommodating, The space has a kitchen, living room and and what could be a reading space or office, if you should find you need to do a bit of work while staying. The walls of every room are lines with original drawings, paintings and prints by the owner and other artists. You have access to the backyard garden and BBQ from this floor. The bathroom and two bedrooms are on the lower( basement level with access to a washer and dryer as well). This home is on a busy street( Pape Avenue) yet you do not hear the traffic of busses from within. It is also the nicest house on the block. The area appears a bit worn but is safe. It is a short walk to the Pape Subway station and a loads of stores, restaurants and people on the Danforth. The house and space have charm and character, but not in a designer TV show way.

Grant provides a parking pass which you can use to park in the streets off Pape, but not on it as it has no parking most of the time. You can leave your car parked and use transit to get quickly to downtown attractions.

This rental would not be appropriate for a guest with mobility issues because of the stairs. It was relatively clean, however there were a few dust bunnies and webs on the brick walls, nothing serious, but a neat freak might not be comfortable. There is a gas stove and oven and a half size dishwasher and apartment size refrigerator, so buying food at the many stores within walking distance could save you a lot of money over the restaurants.

I would stay again if I was coming to the city for a longer stay.

Nice, homey and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

On arriving everything was set out and organized for our stay. The unit was clean and had all the amenities needed for our stay. The owner explained the parking requirements for the area and had a parking permit ready for use. Parking was a premium around this rental unit, so off loading had to be planned around no parking times.

We will use this facility again and have instructed our family members to also use this property when in the area.

Coming from western Canada, the conjested confines of Toronto need to be aclimitized to which this rental unit certainly helps to accomplish.

A very comfortable place, gracious owner

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our stay at the Riverdale Greektown townhouse. The owners provided a very clean and comfortable place, great bed, fine linens, serviceable kitchen with dinner and tableware, cooking and preparing tools, garbage bags etc. The bathroom was well appointed and the shower/bath was great. The user manual was very complete, use of TV was easy, and to those coming in cold weather, very comfortable all day and night. The owner and manager were very helpful and gracious.We hope to return to Toronto and stay here again. We would highly recommend this townhouse, very accessible to subway to all parts of Toronto, to shopping and dining only a few blocks away. We recommend Meze for a fine and reasonable Greek dinner, and Globe for fine dining, Pizza Libretto also very good. For strictly organic, vegan, guests, the Big Carrot is a good food shopping choice, and there is a bulk place for dried fruit, nuts, etc. just a few blocks away on Danforth. The suggestion of the Serano bakery up the street was terrific, great breads and pastries. Thanks again for a great time in Toronto.
