Your hosts John and Nelson have combined their expertise in real estate and set design and their shared love of travel, architecture and “the finer things in life,” to bring you a truly luxurious home-away-from-home. They live a few blocks away, and are always happy to help with anything during your stay. (Fully bilingual, Nelson can be of assistance en francais, too!) The couple have meticulously designed this house to be a sanctuary, and have made every effort to ensure their guests feel pampered from the moment step over the threshold. “We created a home that we’d love to stay in when traveling – and that’s setting the bar high indeed.” –John
John purchased this House in 2010

Great family weekend in a great location
This was our second stay in this perfectly located spacious home. We enjoyed getting together with our 2 adult children who study in ON. The house looked a little more worn than last year, which can happen considering how often new guests come and go. We feel some of the walls could use some paint and some of the pots might need replacing as the Teflon inside is coming loose. John is a great host and promptly responds to text. We love the decor of the home and found the WiFi was much better than last year.
Walking to Queen St and browsing the many great boutique stores is fun and getting the complimentary gift card for the patisserie is a wonderful gesture. We ate all our meals in the well appointed kitchen and used the BBQ every night.
Thank you John for a great Thanksgiving weekend!
Townhouse in Toronto
This place is just as the pictures show.
Very modern & clean, has a good feeling.
In this location you can pretty much walk anywhere. The bus system was pretty cool.
Owner welcomed us & gave us a gift card for our first breakfast.
Love the house
Nice and clean, John is awsone.
Great days in Toronto
We had lovely days in Toronto in this beautiful house! John is a great host and the house is decorated lovely and very cosy. It is close to the streetcars and is also close enough to the downtown sights to walk.
We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay with us in Toronto. We hope to welcome you back sometime soon.
Such a lovely and welcoming space for us—and our two dogs! Great location. Very walkable to shops and transportation. Thank you John for being the perfect host. We loved your attention to the small details that made our Toronto visit special. We will be back!
Thanks very much for your kind review. It was our pleasure to host your family. We look forward to warmly welcoming you back!
