Overview

About the property

1 BEDROOM + 1 QUEEN PULLOUT, 1 BATHROOM IN RESIDENTIAL DOWNTOWN

Steps to world class restaurants, cafés, shops, museums and funky neighborhoods, the subway and parks, our place is awesome for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and small families. Centrally located in a quiet residential neighborhood, you won't find a cozier, more charming home away from home as your base for exploring. You'll love our elegant touches, the rustic but modern Euro vibe and thoughtful detail that has gone into making everything about staying with us the best. Welcome!

Free wifi and full cable TV, incluging HBO, Movie and ManySports and News channeles are all included

A spacious, bright and well equipped, modern kitchen with an awesome stove greets you as you walk in. You can leave your shoes / boots / footwear on the boot rack adjacent the door and your coat / jacket / sweater on the hooks provided above it. Or, in the either of the two ample closets found deeper into the unit, the first being on your left just past the huge fridge by the stairs.

The medium sized dining table that sits by the stairs is an excellent place to unwind over a meal after the day's adventure. The lovely modern bathroom is situated to the left of the fridge. The shower is awesome. And we are luxury towel / spa people.

The aforementioned stairs lead up to the hosts' main living space. This should be considered off limits. The door remains locked at all times. It is an entirely private, self contained space.

As you delve deeper, down the warm hallway, past the double closet, the next door on the left (also remains locked) leads the boiler / laundry room - ask the host if you wish to purchase these services. Just beyond that, the next door on your left, is the cozy main bedroom, with a comfortable, brand new queen sized bed and fine linens.

The cutaway design of the west wall allows for easy communication between the main bedroom and the spacious living area at the very end where you will find the Cable TV, ample seating (with a queen sized pull out sofa bed) in a soothing oasis from the rigors of the city and travel. It's a great place to chill and recharge. The back door to the large garden should be kept closed / locked but on warmer days it is lovely to keep open and enjoy the gentle garden breezes and golden sunsets. One could say that Time seems almost to stand still in these moments...

So, welcome! We hope you enjoy your stay and find everything about our lovingly maintained unit to your full satisfaction.

About Jason

Hard working creative, citizen of the world. I have lived, worked and traveled on most continents and know the value of a nice, tranquil and pleasant home away from home. I speak several languages fluently and love connecting with new people wherever I am.

Jason purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jason chose Christie Pits

We fell in love with this house the moment we saw it. In the spirit of European home sharing, we wanted to offer discerning travelers a chance to stay in our lovely home. To this end we have created a wonderfully cozy, quiet but central northern European style flat like you might find in Holland, France or England.

What makes this apartment unique

Words can't describe the easy, quiet, downtown charm of Seaton Village / Christie Pits - the area that we are so privileged to live in. So centrally located with convenient, nearby access to Subways, Buses, Bikes Lanes and Taxis, it's hard to imagine ever needing a car. Toronto is a really easy city to get around and the following local attractions / areas are all within close distances / travel times from our downtown House:

• Pearson Airport - 25 kms / 15 miles. 30 mins. The UP Express Train that runs to and from Pearson International Airport is easily the fastest, most convenient, cleanest and absolute best option available. Our House is located near the UP's Bloor stop. The UP Train journey is only 17 minutes from the airport to Bloor Station and costs $11.40 CAD return. From Bloor station we are a 5-10 min cab ride or 3 subway stops away. The whole journey from disembarking to arriving at the House can easily take under an hour, depending on immigration and customs.

• Ossington Ave / Queen West / Parkdale area - 2.5 kms / 1.5 miles. 7 - 10 mins by Bus or Cab.

• Casa Loma - 3 kms / 1.8 miles. 10-15 mins by Subway / Bus or Cab.

• Yorkville / ROM / University of Toronto - 4 kms / 2.5 miles. 10-15 mins by Subway or Cab.

• Kensington Market / Chinatown - 4 kms / 2.5 miles. 10-15 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab.

• High Park / Bloor West Village - 4 kms / 2.5 miles. 10-15 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab.

• Exhibition Place / Liberty Village / BMO field - 4.5 kms / 2.8 miles. 15-20 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab.

• Entertainment / Financial Districts - 5 kms / 3 miles. 15-20 mins by Subway or Cab.

• Eaton Centre / Yonge-Dundas Square - 5.4 kms / 3.3 miles. 20 mins by Subway / Bus or Cab.

• St. Lawrence Market - 7 kms / 4.3 Miles. 23 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab.

• The Distillery District - 8 kms / 5 miles. 25 mins by Subway, Bus or Cab.

• Toronto Island - arguably the jewel in Toronto's crown, you simply cannot visit Toronto without a visit.

Comfortable, clean, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Jason was a wonderful host. His rental was clean, updated, and had everything we needed for our stay. Public transportation was nearby. On-street parking was easy to find and having a nice little cafe 20 seconds away was a good way to start each day.

This cozy, clean apartment with a Scandinavian feel was the perfect fit for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our little family (mom, dad and 21 month old baby) thoroughly enjoyed our time at this Christie Pits apartment. The neighbourhood was great, with lovely parks and excellent coffee nearby. We were worried we would wake the baby in the evening since there is a cut-out in the bedroom wall leading to the living room, however this was not a problem since the kitchen was a comfortable spot to relax in the evening.
