24 hr separate entrance to private 300 sq. ft. space with private 3 piece bath and king sized bed. Clean, safe and well located just 5 min walking to subway (to all downtown attractions, events, concerts and sport venues) & Yonge St. restaurants, shops, grocery, LCBO and theatres.

The space

The room that is available is a recently renovated basement area that is open concept and clean. It has a private 24 hr entrance and is in a very safe and well located area just a 5 minute walk to the subway to all downtown attractions, events, concerts and sport venues. It is also only a 5 min walk to Yonge St. restaurants, shops, grocery, LCBO and theatres.

One of the many benefits with our Airbnb is that you will get a sense of city living from one of the most desirable areas in Toronto to live in (Yonge and Eglinton) that is ALSO quiet, safe and very convenient. When you want to access the excitement of the city, downtown is only a 15 minute subway ride or Yonge street is just a five minute walk. Or you may access our incredible community pool, tennis courts or green space just behind our house.

The space comes standard with a King bed (Soma 100% organic in perfect condition). When greater than two people book the Queen sized double thickness air mattress will be blown up and ready for use and the bedding and pillow for it will be provided. Since we have found people prefer to have the floor space available until they are ready for bed we tuck away the air mattress vertically for you to quickly assemble once ready to sleep.

The space has its own 3 piece private bathroom with shower. Towels, body wash, shampoo and conditioner are provided.

The two reasons the price is so low for a private entrance private space at this location is because of two things we can't easily change. One is that the ceiling height is not standard. It is fine for the majority of people as we have had over 200 guests stay with us and have had only one comment regarding its height. The second reason is the stairs leading down into the Airbnb is atypical and bit awkward which also has only been commented on once. Although most of our guests rate us five stars throughout, people that expect it to be a Toronto hotel experience for this price point are likely to rate us lower which is unfortunate as we are upfront about these to things and set the price accordingly.

The entire space is professionally cleaned before a new guest arrives.

There isn't access to cooking facilities however within a 5 minute walk you may find plenty of restaurants or we have a menu of Isagenix meal replacement shakes you can purchase for convenience. One shake comes complimentary with your stay upon request to sample.

Entrance to the space is at the back of the house where you can access the space 24 hours a day at your own convenience.

The space comes with a coffee maker with Organic coffee included, a standard mini fridge (new addition), fresh clean white towels, one complimentary shake (upon request), free wifi, cable tv with TSN, Movie DVDs, and a library of books and games.

The rest of the house is occupied by our family. We are a professional family with three great kids ages 10, 9, 6. We hope to attract guests that are understanding that they are sharing a home and although we are all considerate of our guests, some noises may be heard from us when we are home. We are usually up in the morning at 7:30am and at night time we are quiet putting the kids to bed and winding down.

The room was clean and had a wide selection of activities for entertainment (DVDs, board games, books). Evan also made sure to check with us if we were comfortable during our stay and even offered us a complimentary shake. We enjoyed our stay there very much!

Evan and his wife are very friendly and helpful. It is a cosy and spacious place. Near to metro. Less than 30 mins to Union station. Shower area is a bit small though.
