Comfortable, clean, family-friendly and 5-star rated 3-bedroom house in a convenient location in Leslieville (downtown eastside). Very close to excellent bars, shops, restaurants, highways, grocery stores, Starbucks and the BEACHES. We just added a beautiful backyard and front deck to help guests enjoy the summer in Toronto.
10m drive/20m transit ride to central downtown area, 3m walk to Queen St E. & 24hr transit.
My place is ideal for families w/kids and groups of friends.
This is a comfortable three bedroom house that would be great for a family or group of friends. It can sleep six (in beds). There are also two air mattresses available (one is child size, the other is queen size). There is a side deck with gas bbq and an incredible back deck/pergola for guests to use.
Includes a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. Central A/C and heat included. Breakfast foods and coffee/tea are provided (pancake mix and syrup, cereal (20 kinds), oatmeal, bagels/bread, bananas, frozen waffles, pop tarts).
In the summer, I provide beach chairs, mats, toys, a volleyball/badminton net and a cooler bag for you to take to the nearby beach.
House comes with everything you'll need: towels, dishes, pots/pans, cutlery, coffee maker, kettle, toaster and other appliances (panini press popcorn maker, indoor smores maker anyone?).
There are several board games, lots of kids toys, DVDs and a Wii to keep you entertained. There is a NES Classic available by request with a cash deposit. I also provide toys to take to the local park.
This house is 20 minutes (or longer depending on traffic and time of day) to central downtown Toronto via the 24-hour Queen streetcar (a block away), and there is also a bus stop out front to the Danforth subway line (around 5 minutes away).
It's close to the great restaurants and bars on Queen East, but also a 12 to 15 minute walk/less than 5 minute drive to the Beach, or a 15 minute walk to the beautiful Leslie Street Spit.
This is also a child friendly house. A highchair is available, along with toddler/baby dishes and cutlery. Please note, however, that the house is not baby proof.
There is a luxurious Loblaws (grocery store) right across the street with a bank machine, dry cleaner, bakery, Joe Fresh (clothing store) and wine store. The Loblaws also sells beer/cider and many prepared food options if you don't want to cook. If you're on a budget, there is a discount grocery store (FreshCo) next door. The busiest Starbucks in Canada is also located right across the street to help you get your caffeine fix, along with a Tim Horton's and Wendy's (fast food) next door.
There is street parking available. You can park in front of the house on the street on the weekends and during the week (with the exception of 7 to 9 am and 4 to 6 pm) or one street over. A street parking permit can be bought online from the City of Toronto's website (a 7-day pass is around $20).
We have some fun extras available...a Nintendo Wii, a DVD player with movies, and many popular board games (including Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens). The TV has a Chromecast so you can control it by your phone, tablet or laptop if you download the Chromecast app. There is also a premium cable package with The Movie Network, AMC, CNN, HBO Canada, etc.
Guests will enjoy exclusive use of top two floors of the house and shared use of side deck, back deck and BBQ. There is a separate apartment in the basement that is not included (that's where I stay when I have guests). Please note that laundry is not included because it's located in the host's downstairs living space.
I am available at all times via text (preferred), email and phone.
Please let me know if you need an earlier check-in or later check-out, and I will try to accommodate. Check-in on Sundays is after 5 pm. The house has external cameras, a security system and front door that is controlled by a keypad (no key needed).
As a fellow Air BnB traveller, I hope you'll feel comfortable during your stay. I will be on site (in the basement apartment) during your stay. I expect you'll treat the house with respect and leave it as you found it. This house is ideal for families, groups of friends and business travellers.
-No smoking of any kind inside of the house. Smoking is only allowed in the backyard...not the front or the side of the house.
-No guests can stay over who are not in the original request.
-Please message with the full name and age of each guest.
-No shoes in the house.
-No touching the thermostat without prior permission from host (the host controls it remotely)
-Quiet time after midnight on weekends and 11 pm on week nights.
I love to travel using Air BnB and I'm excited to become a host. I'm making my home available so my young son and I will have extra money to fund our own adventures (we're saving to take him to Disney World for his 8th birthday). We look forward to having you stay in our home!
