Nice place, great location...
We stayed for a week in early August 2016. The apartment was clean, modern, and comfortable, especially the beds. There was adequate off-street parking. The neighborhood is about 4-5 miles away from the central downtown area, easily accessed by public transit (more on that below). Woodbine Beach was also only a mile or so away. The best part about this property was how easily we got around the entire city. The Gerrard-Main bus stops literally right across the street from the house and runs every 20 minutes. It is a three-minute bus ride to the Main Street subway station (I walked it a couple times). From there you can get to the lake front, the Air Canada Center, the Rogers Center, Ripley’s Aquarium, CN Tower, Eaton Centre, Dundas Square, The Royal Ontario Museum, and Casa Loma. We also went to the Ontario Science center, but that required transferring to a bus (it was no big deal). The subway system is easy to figure out, and all necessary routes are easily acquired via the TTA trip planner on their website. My point in saying all this is that, while the apartment is a few miles out of downtown, it did not feel like we were out in the boonies; we felt connected to the city center. The neighborhood was very nice. We tried to assess the neighborhood via Google Earth street view, but that did not do it justice as it was much nicer than we expected. It is on a gentrifying street with well-kept homes. It was safe and pleasant. There is a small convenience market around the corner. There is a Loblaw’s grocery, a Tim Horton’s, and a McDonald’s a few blocks away on Victoria Park Ave. There are many more businesses just a bit further to the north on Danforth, including a bank and currency exchange. There are many places to eat, drink, and shop within walking distance on Kensington Avenue to the south. Nick and his wife were gracious hosts and was available to us via text or phone. We would surely stay there again.
