Please Read the space details below before booking :) "Show More Link" - Lovely one dedicated bedroom basement apartment (without a kitchen). 3 mins walk from the subway and a 5-minute ride to Woodbine park and the beaches. Important information about the place is below. Note: we are fully vaccinated and we are pretty diurnal.

The space
Lovely spacious dedicated one bedroom basement apartment; insuite private bathroom, washer & dryer and separate entrance at the front of the house.

Please read the details before booking. You will have a full and independent use of the basement apartment. The entrance to the basement is at the front of the house through a dedicated separate entrance. We have two dogs (Labrador mix- Compass, and German Shepherd- Josh) who are very friendly but have big voices. They will likely bark when you approach the property, but they are not aggressive. If you encounter them, don’t be shy and say hi :) If you have any allergies to dogs, probably this would not be the best fit. As much as we try to keep the house clean, sanitized and perfect we always find dog hairs somewhere. It is crazy!

We want you to feel comfortable and know that it’s possible you’ll bump into us in the front yard or the dogs. We are both fully vaccinated and we run on a 9am -5pm schedule, the dogs kind of dictate our diurnal lifestyle. There will be some noise, and definitely some barking (especially during deliveries). We live on the main and second floor, however, we are very reserved and mindful and will not bug you in any way. Be mindful, that Compass and Josh are up early in the morning usually excited in the morning right after a restful sleep, but we always take them out first thing. We would like to emphasize that the basement apartment is part of the house and sounds will travel no matter what. If you are uncomfortable with hearing us or the dogs, this may not be the best fit.

The front door to the basement uses a keypad to lock rather than a key. We’ll provide you with the code closer to your reservation date. In the unit, there is a door (with a lock) that closes off the bedroom as well as another door at the entrance of the basement (with a lock as well) which separates the basement from the rest of the house.

There is street parking available, close to the house through the city at the cost of ~$15 every 24hrs. There is also a pay Green P parking lot a block away. You can purchase a Toronto Temporary parking permit on the Toronto Temporary Parking Permit website. We have a printer if you need us to print it for you.

To be mentioned:
- Please be mindful that we live on the property.
- Please keep the noise level down after 11 pm (i.e. loud music or TV)
- We are 9 am to 5 pm kind of people - Please no check-in and/or check-out in the middle of the night (i.e. 4 am) - You are more than welcome to come and go anytime, we just want to avoid the extra noise with late check-ins and luggage.
- Please no more than 2 people on the property at any time.
- The house is located in a quiet and residential neighbourhood, please be quiet when outside and when entering or leaving the property.
- Please no smoking on the property, including on the front yard.

Our place would be ideal if you are looking for a place to have a good and comfortable sleep and a shower before hitting the road again. It is a simple and modest accommodation for easygoing people like we are, and the low price reflects that (Toronto is so expensive :( ). So please remember that when you review your stay.

It is a basement apartment, so probably I would not recommend it if you have never lived in one before (noise and illumination may be a sore spot for some).
