About Julie Braybrook

My son and I live on the main floor. Last summer we used Homeaway to travel through Europe. We loved meeting all the people who use this site. We want to 'payback' the hospitality we experienced so we joined the site as a property owner. We have a fully loaded and self contained basement apartment with walkout. I personally designed it as I was living there when I first was married. Everything is top notch, ceramic tiles, jaccuzzi tub, double locking doors to Master Bedroom. There is a futon in living room that would accommodate two children or one adult, possibly two for a short period. We would love to welcome you to our home. I have a catering business, so if you would like meals prepared after a long day of sightseeing, just ask.

Julie Braybrook purchased this house in 1974

Why Julie Braybrook chose Toronto

I grew up in this home and always loved the peacefulness of the backyard and quiet neighbourhood.

What makes this house unique

Cul de sac, no traffic, safe, quiet, walkout from apartment to ravine setting. Close to downtown and transit route. Trendy restaurants and cafes close by.

Scenic and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

Never imagined that I would be fortunate enough to find such a lovely place to rent that would allow me to bring my little dogs. Very private and everything you need for your stay. Julie was very helpful when needed, but the rest of the time I felt like I was living at my own private residence. If you are the type of person who likes to be close to the beauty of nature, this is the place for you. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Serenity and comfort

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at Julie's and once again it felt like home. Julie is a wonderful and accommodating host. Everything is always clean and the apartment has all the conveniences. The ravine backyard is like having your own private and serene park ground. I really needed a place like this to stay while undergoing the chaos of renovating. Thank you so much, Julie for all your kindness and support. And thank you also for making tea for me that night I was not feeling well. You are truly an angel!

We adored this property!

  • 5 of 5

Julie was very welcoming and the property is a wonderful treat. She has done such a great job with the landscape and the apartment design is top-notch. It was so nice to vision that beautiful back yard and such a nice peaceful place to come back to... after touring some of the best attractions the City of Toronto had to offer...it surely felt like coming home.

Thank you very much Julie!...the kitchen was perfect with the touch of having a nice selection of herbs and spices stocked away...for people like us, who prefer to cook and eat at home mostly...the little details like that meant so much Elisa and me. We would gladly stay there again when we decide to visit Toronto.

Highly recommended, reasonable price, convenient to public transportation, walking distance to parks, and close to quite a few highly rated neighborhood restaurants in the area.

Thanks again,

Darryl and Elisa

A cozy and comfortable gem

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place to stay while I was renovating my home. This was my first HomeAway experience and it couldn't have been any better. Julie's home is charming, well maintained and very clean with all the comforts of home. Her hospitality was so wonderful I felt like I was in my own home. The view in the backyard is so serene and beautiful you'd never think that access to downtown Toronto was so close. I highly recommend this location for any traveller and I have booked again as I will need accommodation for more upcoming home renovating. Thank you, Julie for a truly wonderful experience!

An inviting and well kept property

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment and the property to be spacious, well laid out and very well maintained. It is centrally located on a quiet cul de sac. The house was quiet and we felt very much at home. We would recommend this location highly.

Perfect for a small family

  • 5 of 5

A great stay. The amenities were great and the owners were very accommodating. Love the setting--the backyard backing dramatically onto Taylor Creek.

Our home is located in a highly sought after area, very quiet and safe. We back onto Taylor Creek Park that has beautiful nature trails and a bike/hiking trail system that goes from one end of the city to the other. We have the best of everything within walking distance. We love to meet new people and are very accommodating. We love animals and have two friendly and quiet bulldogs. We would welcome responsible pet owners, but please declare that you have a pet upon booking. The transit system is a two minute walk away from the house. It will take you downtown in just over a half hour. Trendy restaurants and cafes are located in our area called 'East York'. Downtown you will find the ROM - Royal Ontario Museum. Our live shows are on Yonge Street and King Street. Check out our CN Tower which at one time boasted being the tallest free standing structure in the world. There is parking on the street and a 'No Frills' grocery store which prides itself on very reasonably priced food items. Our backyard is more like a forest with a many tiered grass area. You will see the odd cardinal or Blue Jay who will welcome you to our home. Catering is also available at a minimal fee. My son and I visited Europe last summer and used 'homeaway' and found it very convenient and cheap!! We want to pay back and welcome travelers to our home.
