Overview

About the property

Our unique Guesthouse is perfectly located right in the heart of the Trinity Bellwoods neighborhood in Toronto, (second hippest area in the world, according to Vogue Magazine). Being ideally situated just 5 houses south of always vibrant Queen Street West our guests need only to step out their door to be right in the epicenter of trendy Toronto. Fantastic restaurants, great bars, more art galleries than you can shake a stick at and minutes from the lake. Our Guesthouse is a private residence.

The guesthouse has just been completed, Everything is brand spanking new. The house is incredibly quiet and you wouldn't know you are only steps from the excitement of Queen Street West. In the summer you can use the courtyard garden to relax and even fire up the bbq if you feel like it.

We have installed an electronic key pad. Access code will be supplied once booking has been completed.

Temporary street parking permits are available. These can be nightly or weekly. Please let us know if you need a permit when we speak and I can have one waiting for you upon arrival.

We are home most evenings and are always available to our guests. Whether you need advice on where to go, which attractions we think you might like or just want to have a chat and a glass of wine please feel free to knock on our door.

Toronto was designed as a grid, and as you get further from downtown, the neighborhoods become looser and larger pieces of the city. The inner city neighborhoods are all woven closely together, forming a colorful and lively scene of city life. When you walk around Toronto’s inner city areas, you will definitely find yourself exploring Trinity Bellwoods. Residents and tourists love it for it’s popular park, restaurants, and shopping venues. If you’re looking for a central Toronto neighborhood with effortless style and charm, then Trinity Bellwoods could be the best place for you.

Fabulous cosy but modern space in great community with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

It is a fabulous haven in a busy city on a lovely street close to Trinity Bellwood Park. The living and bedroom areas are spacious and comfortable with large shower room stocked with essentials. There is a well equipped kitchen and a great bbq in the lovely garden. In a very hot summer the air conditioning was a delight and the tv allowed us to catch up on World Cup action too! Victoria and Steve were marvellous hosts and attentive to our needs but still managing to give us our privacy. We would be delighted to stay again and would highly recommend it to anyone.

A True Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Victoria and Steve who were warm, gracious and welcoming. The cottage was equipped as a 5 star hotel. It was beautifully decorated and had everything we could have possibly needed . We would return when in Toronto again and recommend it to all our friends and family. The cottage made our visit to our daughter and son-in-law feel like a lavish vacation.

Great Location and quiet too!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights and found the accommodation comfortable and well laid out. Steve was a very responsive host and took care of a few minor issues quickly.. The location was great and surprisingly quiet given the busy neighbourgphood. We would happily stay again

Great stay and event!

  • 5 of 5

We had an opportunity to stay in this lovely coach house and also host our baby shower. It was great for our 15-20 guests, with pristine accommodations and facilities. All our guests made reference to how posh everything was. Steve was an amazing host, who was always in touch if we had any questions. I would definitely stay here again in a heart beat!

Spacious, updated, quiet, private, and convenient--with excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My stay here was absolutely perfect. I drove to Toronto for a work conference that was located downtown, and which ran for 5 days. This beautiful guesthouse was perfectly located, being just around the corner from the streetcar which runs down Queen straight to downtown. The house is beautifully updated, spacious, and is both private and quiet. The hosts made the stay easy and truly special at every step, from helping me navigate the street parking to suggesting favorites from the many local restaurants, cafes, bars and shops nearby. They made themselves available but otherwise unobtrusive. Parking could not have been easier--I found a spot just a half block down the same street and did not have to move my car once during my stay thanks to the low-cost permit and the excellent and readily accessible public transportation. It was my first time in Toronto, and I hope to return to this very spot as it was so ideal. If you are interested in the streetcar, tokens can be purchased at some subway stops downtown, and these make things much easier as you don't have to dig for exact change each time.
