Overview

Toronto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 2-4)

The Swanky Suite is just one of the many unique suites that are part of the Posh Digs Toronto collection of fully furnished short-term rentals in Little Italy.

This 2 bedroom-plus sofa bed, suite sleeps 6 comfortably. The open concept living room/kitchen and dining room comes complete with a dishwasher. The master bedroom is large with exposed brick wall and skylight.

New appliances, and completely stocked cupboards filled with dishware, cutlery and cooking utensils make it easy to prepare any meal.

A washer and dryer are also included in the suite along with 2 full bathrooms. The suite is located on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the house.

The Swanky Suite is 1 of 4 fully furnished suites in a classic

Toronto Victorian mansion. Over a 100 years old, the house has been fully renovated to include all of the modern conveniences you’ve come to expect but still keeping that old world charm. Each suite is private with it’s own entrance and all fully self-contained. There’s also free parking -1 per suite at the rear of the house. That being said you may not even need a car as public transit is a short walk down the street.

The suite is located on a residential tree-lined street in Downtown Toronto. The neighbourhood is known as Little Italy, it’s safe and family friendly with parks , cafes, and restaurants nearby. It’s a 10 minute walk to the Annex on Bloor street and the Bloor/Bathurst subway and 2 minutes to the Bathurst street car.

Everything is within walking distance including restaurants, bars, cafes, Sam James Coffee House, Starbucks, grocery stores, pharmacy, liquor store and public transit.

The restaurant choices nearby are varied-from Italian to Sushi, and hard to resist. There’s everything from 5 star to local legends. You can choose from the city’s favourite veal sandwiches that are bigger than your head to menus filled with locally sourced ingredients, prepared and plated by some of Toronto's finest culinary artisans. The folks that make the veal sandwiches are artisans as well, just a different kind of art.

Some of Toronto's other popular neighbourhoods are also close including Little Korea, Chinatown, Trinity Bellwoods and Little Portugal. From here you can get easily to some of our other great attractions like the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and of course the CN Tower. Niagara Falls is a great day trip that’s about an hour and half drive away. Even more convenient, skip the drive, and take one of the many tour buses that go there every day.

It's all about neighbourhood living here. You're still downtown and close to everything but you're not surrounded by the hustle and bustle.

If your travelling with a large group and you'd like to stay together you may consider renting more than one suite. We do get a lot of groups like wedding parties, convention attendees etc., that do book the whole house.

We do not live in the property, but do live a couple blocks away so we are close by if you have any questions. We are the owners and manage the properties ourselves.

If our calendar appears booked during the dates you'd like for this suite, we do have others you can enquire about on Homeaway 940811, 940812, 940816, 3015218, 3021303, 219340. This includes other short-term rentals in the same neighbourhood close to this location. We have a variety of fully furnished suites to fit every budget from a simple bachelor suite all the way up to a luxurious 3 bedroom home.

You can also checkout our site poshdigs.ca for more information.

Looking forward to your enquiry.

Please note regarding booking online: If you are paying online through Homeaway or VRBO or any of it's affiliate partners we will require a photocopy of two pieces of government issued photo ID plus the credit card used for payment. All the names should match. The reason we have to do this is we need proof that the person that paid for the stay owns the credit card. We have had problems with credit card fraud in the past . Homeaway takes no responsibilities for their online payment process. In the end we are solely responsible for making sure the credit card used for payment was actually owned by the person that stayed with us.

About Arthur

We've lived and worked in downtown Toronto for most of our lives. Our kids go to school in the neighbourhood and keep us pretty busy when we're not working our regular day jobs in marketing.

We personally manage our short-term rentals because we really like doing it. Plus it's convenient as our suites are just around the corner from our actual home.

Arthur purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Arthur chose Toronto

Our properties are all in older homes in the established neighbourhood of Little Italy in downtown Toronto. We've updated all of our suites to make them as modern and comfortable as possible while still keeping the charm of a century home.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the neighbourhood for a lot of reasons. So much is in walking distance. You don't need to a car, unless you're going to Niagara Falls or any other day trips out of town. Everything else is a short cab ride away. And public transit is also nearby and convenient.

Stayed at Swanky Suite the last week of April with my daughters. The apartment is exactly as shown. Clean and bright. Great location. Parking is a bonus and a cute little patio was the perfect place to sit and have a glass of wine before dinner.

Arthur was easy to communicate with. No problems at all.

David and Anne said



The apartment is all that is promised on Airbnb. We felt right at home and it was enough space to accommodate four people without getting in eachother's way. The location in little Italy is very good as it is a quiet, beautiful neighbourhood. Most of Toronto's sights are easily reached by public transport or -in our case- walking (depending where you are headed between 15 mins (Kensington market) and 60 mins (destillery district). Arthur was very responsive to all our requests and professional, yet friendly, in arranging all the details (a full manual was provided on all things relevant to the apartment). Overall: We can recommend it.





David said

Our rental occurred during over a cold week in Dec / Jan, and the suite provide us a warm, comfortable, modern, fully featured living experience. We enjoyed the ability to prepare our own breakfast before heading out for the day. Great location near great shops, restos, and services in Little Italy / Palmerston area. Would highly recommend the suite, and Arthur was very quick to respond to any questions we had before we ever arrived. Very comfortable beds as well provided a great nights sleep. Having the parking space was also a huge plus.

Car: not necessary

Little Italy is a vibrant fun neighbourhood. There's a great mix of old and new. A recent wave of young families from diverse backgrounds have moved in to bring a fresh new vibe to the area. Cool coffee shops, share space with 5 star dining. and funky bars. Everything is within walking distance. Enjoy a diverse selection of activities from taking in the City Sights i.e. Royal Ontario Museum, Art Galleries,CN Tower, Ontario Place, Science center, Air Canada Center and Rogers Center ( formally The Dome ).

Sample a delectable variety of dining delights from all corners of the World, spend a day by the Lake, hop on the Ferry to Center Island and rent a bike or stroll around the Island.

Niagara Falls is only one and a half hours away by car or bus.
