Excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

Whilst right on the outskirts of the greater toronto area, you are only 5 minutes walk away from trails which go round Lake Ontario. The property itself is in a lovely, quiet and safe neighbourhood with easy commuting via the GO transit and amenities close by.

The house itself can accomodate more than the 6 advertised (8 at a push), and it was well kept with all the facilities advertised (of note, the wifi is excellent and there is an added bonus of being able to print in the basement).

Andy (and his sister in law) were excellent hosts who ensured that we had reached the place safely and were available to contact whenever if needed.

I would to stay here again in a heartbeat for sure the next time we come to Toronto!

A clean, quiet, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

This house was a peaceful place to base excursions to the Toronto downtown core via nearby GO and TTC transit, or bike trips and long walks along extensive trails on the shores of Lake Ontario, Highland Creek and the Rouge River.

The hosts were helpful and attentive, yet unobtrusive and respectful of

privacy. I never felt that I was in someone else's home. It's obvious that some thought has gone into providing those little comforts a traveler misses. Some excellent choices were made in the assembly of a small library of quintessential holiday paperbacks for rainy days.

My only suggestion would be light-excluding curtains in the bedrooms. International travelers and others who don't necessarily rise with the sun will thank you for it.

We would recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay in the Toronto area. Andy, the owner couldn't have been more helpful, with lots of information before we went, always on hand to answer questions, even ringing on our arrival to make sure we were settled in. He had arranged a family member to meet us at the house on arrival with keys and to settle us in. The house itself is lovely, just as described, but even better in reality and had everything we needed and was extremely clean and well maintained; just what we were looking for, and as someone else reviewed, was like staying at a friends house, rather than a holiday rental. Close to Toronto with excellent transport links, with the Go train a short walk away. It was also in a very quiet, safe neighbourhood. The property was well placed for many excursions in all directions, and only a short walk down to Lake Ontario. We only wish we could have stayed longer, but we will definitely be returning.

Thanks for everything Andy!.

Brilliant location and Super accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodation with everything you need for a family holiday. Brilliant location for sightseeing, downtown Toronto and wider Ontario attractions. Lovely welcome on arrival with reassurance that any assistance is only a text away. Will most definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you Andy.

Warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 spent a very comfortable week in Andy's house. The location was perfect for visiting our relations in the surrounding area and convenient for downtown. The playground across the road, the double-decker Go trains and the dinosaur exhibit at the ROM were all much appreciated by our 3-year old. Andy's friendly and helpful welcome was great - we felt at home straight away.

Rent this property!!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot state strongly enough what a great place this is to stay. it is possibly the only time that a destination actually looked even BETTER in real life than on the website!! The house is beautifully equipped and maintained and gives the feeling of house-sitting for a friend, with the small matter of payment at the start. Even though he had arranged for family members to meet us and give us the keys, Andy stayed up till midnight UK time to call us and make sure that we were settling in alright!! We had lots of space allowing for study, play, reading and relaxation. The location could not be better, friendly neighbours and a really safe setting combined with ultra-easy access to central Toronto on the GO train.

If you are travelling to or through Toronto:rent this house!!
