2 mins from the subway, yet a world away! Our adorable house is located on a leafy one-way street just a short walk from Bloor and Ossington. Relax in the open concept living area, get creative in the art studio, or bliss out in our leafy backyard!
While unassuming from the outside, our little 2-storey house is full of surprises! Archways in the living area, exposed wooden beams in the kitchen, and unique wooden beamed 'bento box' ceilings in many of the rooms. Not to mention a large, lush backyard complete with a fireplace! While the house features 2 bedrooms, we ask that the smaller room (our little girl's bedroom) be left alone, so therefor there is one bedroom, big enough for two guests, as well as a pullout couch in the large living area downstairs. Our house is full of books which you are welcome to enjoy, and art that we've either produced or collected on our travels (you may particularly notice a Mexican theme!) If you enjoy spaces that are colourful, fun , relaxing, and also a bit quirky, you will enjoy your stay here!
*Please note that we recently upgraded to an actual Queen Sized Memory foam bed, and no longer have the futon in the bedroom. Photos to come shortly!
You are welcome to use our kitchen, which features an oven/stove, a toaster oven, an espresso maker, and a tea kettle. Feel free to use any of our pots, pans and dishes but please, refrain from preparing meat/fish with them as we are vegetarians. You are welcome to use the firewood and fireplace in the backyard. We offer free WiFi, and fresh linens and towels. As an extra, we also provide you with locally roasted coffee, and a few bottles of our one of our favourite local beers!
There's no laundry on site, but there is a great coin laundry just 2 minutes away- we have a dry- rack if you choose to hang dry your clothes out in the back yard.
The only thing off limits is our daughter's bedroom.
Interakcija s gostima
We will generally be in contact only by phone or email as we will be elsewhere during your stay. However, we, or a trusted friend will be available in person should you have any problems, or are in need of extra assistance.
If you have any questions, or would like a specific recommendation before your stay, we will be more than happy to oblige!
We have a cat, who would most likely not be around during your stay, however although we will clean up to the best of our abilities, if you have a problem with a bit of cat hair around, this may not be the best place for you. Also, if you have come into recent contact with bed bugs, we cannot risk having you as our guest.
No smoking in the house (in the yard is fine if you properly dispose of butts)
No meat/fish prepared in the house please.
No loud parties/music as this is a residential street with lots of kids/families around.
Please respect our home and leave it as you found it.
No enrty into the room at the far end of the upstairs hall way, that is our little girls' room and is not available for use by our guests.
Extra people are welcome to stay on the pullout downstairs at an addition charge, please advise us in advance so we can arrange for extra linens.
I am originally from Toronto, and have also lived in Vermont and Mexico. I am a self taught event planner and also love doing video/documentary work when I can find the time. I am in the process of launching my own events company called Big Village. While raising my children Leila and Ari, I continue to explore the realms of community, art, and culture. I love travel and language (I taught myself Spanish-with lots of help!) And hope to continue exploring the world and its' people.
