Welcome to "The Cellar Sanctuary".. East meets rest in this large, fully equipped and renovated, self-contained 2-bedroom/1-bathroom basement suite. Occupying the basement level of a large old Victorian house, The Cellar Sanctuary is just that – a quiet and peaceful retreat to relax and unwind. Modern and luxurious kitchen, bathroom, beds and sofas are punctuated by hand-carved, solid wood furniture made in India, eastern accent pieces themed pieces on a foundation of modern design.
A recently converted 6-plex with long term tenants, this beautiful old brick home is nestled on a tree-lined residential street boasting lovely Victorian-era homes in High Park North/Junction, one of Toronto's newest and vibrant now-trending, neighbourhoods.
THE CEILING HEIGHT is typical of these traditional Victorian homes, mostly 6' 6" but with occasional spots (typically at doorways) where the ceiling drops below 6', so please be cautious.
Having been a weary traveller myself on many occasions I have tried to think of everything you will need for a comfortable and restful stay. There are many supplies and little extras that I hope you will find extra special.
Strategically located at opposite ends of the apartment they offer exceptional privacy particularly for 2 couples. Both feature queen size beds with new, comfortable mattresses, feather and / or memory foam pillows and luxury linens. the back bedroom has a heated mattress pad for instant warmth cold nights. Two sets of fluffy cotton towels are neatly folded and waiting for you.
You will find new stainless steel appliances and a surprising amount of storage space with just about everything: from small appliances like a coffee maker, blender and electric grill - to dishes, cutlery, cook books, and a cocktail shaker - to spices, oil, vinegar and complimentary tea, coffee, food and snacks. A small pull out bar height table along with 4 stackable bar stools are provided.
Natural stone (pebbles) are an interesting feature and extend into the built in shower stall. There is no bath tub. It is not a large bathroom and the ceiling height is noticeably lower so if you are tall you will need to take care. But there is plenty of storage space and supplies: from basics like shampoo, conditioner, soap and a hair dryer to a first aid kit, sewing kit and lint roller.
The suite has WiFi and a new 40" flat screen TV. We do not have cable or satellite TV but there is a Roku streaming stick (which comes with its own remote and is plugged into the TV). There are over 1000 internet TV channels and we have a subscription to Netflix.
Four yoga mats are also provided. There is no short supply of yoga, spa and wellness centres in the neighbourhood. The Pacific Health Centre is a 1-minute walk from the suite and offers both yoga and massage.
A coin operated washer and dryer (used by tenants in the building) is located just on the other side of the door in the living room . We supply detergent, a delicates bag, iron and ironing board in the suite.
Although there are many windows throughout, they are typical basement windows: they do not offer sweeping views of the surrounding streets or landscape but their purpose rather is to allow light to filter in.

Hello everyone, I am from Toronto, Canada but have lived and worked around the world for much of my adult life. I have travelled to over 50 countries so far and I am always looking for the next new place to explore and experience. Not surprisingly, travel is my number one passion but I am very curious and love learning about almost anything. I enjoy cooking, animals, gymnastics and talking to/meeting other people. I am a certififed sommelier but keep wine as a hobby only. I have worked as an English teacher, Business Analyst and Property Manager.
I began using Airbnb in 2013 as a guest and started hosting in early 2015. I have had the opportunity to stay as a guest in Panama, India, Germany and Canada so far and my experiences have been very positive, interesting and enlightening. These experiences combined with speaking to and learning from other hosts has taught me a lot about what guests are looking for.
As a host it is important to me that your stay is comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable. I have an amazing cleaner who keeps things spotless and I have tried to think of all the details carefully so that nothing is forgotten. You will find a sewing kit, a mini first aid kit and lint roller for example. For seamless check-in and check-out I have a coded lock for your convenience. I want you to get the most out of your stay and to feel like you are at home and in the perfect retreat. I hope you will choose my suite!
