Welcome to the Ossington strip & Queen West, where you'll find never-ending fun, truly feel like a local and be close to all that Toronto has to offer!
You will be staying in a private one bedroom apartment on the first floor of a bright, character-filled house directly on Toronto's Ossington strip, widely known as the heart of Toronto's bar and restaurant scene and the cultural hub of the city.
The area is famous for its eclectic mix of popular bars, restaurants, nightclubs, coffee shops, vintage shops, art galleries, concert venues and all out cool factor!
You will have your own private, spacious one bedroom apartment fully equipped with:
- Comfortable queen bed
- Lots of closet space
- Huge windows + 10 foot ceilings throughout
- Clean linens and towels
- WiFi Internet
- Netflix + awesome DVD collection
- Temporary street parking permits available online
Please note: This apartment is in an old house, therefore sound does travel. We live in a separate unit on the second floor, and you will most likely hear our footsteps through the floors late at night when we come home from work. If you are an extremely light sleeper, this may be something to keep in mind before booking!
One perk for my guests is that you'll have FREE admission and line pass on weekends into The Drake Hotel, one of Toronto's top cocktail bars/ nightclubs!
My place is in an ideal location for exploring the city. It is centrally located and the Dundas streetcar is only a 3 minute walk. From there you have access to:
- Chinatown in 10 minutes!
- Kensington Market in 10 minutes!!
- Yonge/ Dundas Square,The Eaton Centre & Downtown in 15 minutes!!!
- All major tourist attractions within 20 minutes by public transport
If you choose to walk, you can reach:
- Ossington bars, restaurants and retail shops in 27.3 seconds
- Queen West bars, restaurants and shops in 5 minutes
- Trinity Belwoods (Toronto's busiest park) in 5 minutes
- Little Italy in 10 minutes
Also, only a few minutes walk to:
- Liquor & Beer Store
- 24-hour 7-Eleven
- 24-hour Lakeview Restaurant (A Toronto favourite!)
- 24-hour grocery store
- Bakeries & Coffee Shops
- Tons of retail shops, from vintage to high fashion
I am always happy to make suggestions on anything you wish to do during your stay. I know this city very well and have an impressive mental rolodex of everything one can do in Toronto based on their preference and budget.
My main request is that you treat my house and my neighbours with the upmost respect. I live on a quiet, residential street (and I live in the unit directly above) so please make sure to keep noise to a minimum after 11PM. Only registered guests can be on the property.
Also, please only smoke in the back terrace area of the house.

I was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia, and have lived in Italy and Croatia as well. I live between Toronto, Canada and Dubrovnik, Croatia and in both cities I work in hospitality and tourism. I travel every chance I get, usually on a budget, which is where Airbnb has been my savior.
As a host, I'll go above and beyond to give you an awesome experience, we're in Dubrovnik or Toronto. I know both cities very well, and will make sure that you get some local insight during your visit. From where to eat, go swimming, shopping or partying - I've got you covered.
It sounds cliche, but as a traveler, I try to see the destination from a local's perspective and get a feel of what it's like to live there. Obscure neighbourhoods, places with character, anything that I find to be a rewarding experience. I also do occasionally enjoy taking in the tourist sites and landmarks and will often rent a bike and ride around all day. I'll ask a lot of questions and always appreciate advice, from where to eat and party to where to play pick-up basketball.
See you soon,
