"The Garden" is a Beautiful retreat in the heart of Toronto's prized High Park neighbourhood. Ours is a 100+ year old home with all the love and character that an elegant Victorian family home can offer. The neighbourhood offers the quiet and privacy of a country village with the bustle and fun of the City, just a short walk away.

The local wine and liquor supply is the LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) and its a short 5 minute walk away. Our hood also abounds in fresh veggie stands, Saturday farmers markets & great fish and meat shops. We have taken great pride in setting up a 'cooks' kitchen in the flat so if making your own meals is your thing, you are all set. We keep a small supply of basic spices and oils in stock for our guests enjoyment.
The apartment has two levels and the upper level; kitchen, bathroom and bedroom ceiling height is 6'5". If you are taller than 6' you may find this ceiling too low. The sunken Living room ceiling is 7'.
We welcome well behaved dogs. However due to allergies cats are not accepted.
Back yard garden with BBQ and Deck furniture in Summer
We are excited to host and welcome you, but appreciate your privacy so contact will be kept to your arrival day and then only by request.
Our living area is completely separate, so there will be no crossing paths unless requested by you or on occasion in the backyard, which we may access periodically.
Your flat is a garden view, basement apartment in our home. We live in the rest of the home, so you may hear our general comings and goings, however your space is totally separate and completely private. We are an empty nest couple so no need to worry about hearing youngsters or late night partying. We are pretty dull ;)
The flat has 6.5ft. ceilings so any people on the taller side should check with us first to ensure you will be comfortable.
We have 2 dogs, a friendly, goofy Golden Retriever and a cute as a bug Coton de Tulear. You may meet them in the back yard occasionally.
Arrival and check out times are posted, however if you have a special request we will always do our best to accommodate it.
There is one point of entry to this private unit and one emergency exit in bedroom with push out emergency safety window.
If for any reason we feel that the safety of our home or the respect of the suite are being at all compromised, we reserve the right to enter the suite at any time to check. We will do our best to give you prior warning, but if we cannot reach you in a timely manner we may be required to enter without your direct knowledge.
