Why Shannon Minielly chose Toronto

The Beaches area of Toronto is very appealing to us because it offers a 'small town vibe' within a major, world-class metropolitan area. We can walk to the beach, ride our bikes or inline skate along the beach bike path, play tennis, meet all our friends and neighbours (and their dogs!) along Queen Street...even enjoy an outdoor art installation at the beach in winter! Everyone is very friendly, active and community-oriented and it is 10-15 minutes to get downtown to enjoy live theatre, sporting events and culture. The perfect combination! I know you will love it too!

Spacious Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house!! It is very spacious and accomodating to a large group. We had 14 people, 8 adults, 6 children, and having the 4 full bathrooms and main floor 1/2 bath, was perfect for us!! The kids got to have a sleepover in the basement every night, and the adults each had their own rooms!! Very good communication with the owner! Absolutely nothing but positive things to say!! Walkable distance to stores, Timmy's/Starbucks, grocery, restaurants, the Beach! Although that hill is killer!! Haha. Loved every minute in this house!! 5 Stars!!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our small family reunion of eight adults and two children. Plenty of space to be together and to have privacy. (The kids loved the trampoline!) The neighborhood is very inviting, with great restaurants, a close grocery store and proximity to the beach. Shannon provided all the information needed.

We hope to return, and would certainly recommend.

It is a great house and home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The house so comfortable and cozy that you forget that you are not home. There are plenty of stuff already available in the house, so before bringing anything, just make sure that you ask the owner. Also, it has lot of toys for kids too, so don't pack unnecessarily.

I love the house and would always return this house if I am visiting again.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my extended family stayed here a week for a wedding. Great location! Was during the Jazz festival so we were able to walk down and enjoy the music, food trucks and festivities. Also, a walk down to the beach, restaurants and playground for my young boys. Grocery stores are close by too for quick runs.

The actual house worked out really nicely for us. More than enough bathrooms and beds. Shannon was very accommodating with information provided about parking and info about the area. Also, gave a tour of the home and showed us where things we might need were (irons, extra pillows, blankets and towels). The kitchen was large enough for people to move around and sit at the bar, at the outside table or in the dining room for meals. The shed had bikes and scooters and there is a trampoline which was a hit with the kids. Bikes were great for the teenagers. Toys in the basement for my boys (age 3 and 19 months) was great for keeping them entertained.

Great visit to Toronto! Glad we ended up with this house since it was far enough out of downtown to relax but close enough to enjoy siteseeing and public transit system. I wasn't real familiar with Toronto area upon booking but this is a great prime location. I would definitely stay here again!

The photos did not do the house any justice, it was much better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed in this home for 10 nights, there was a group of 8 of us which came to visit Toronto for a family wedding. Each and every one of us had nothing to complain about. It accomodated all of our needs,from being spacious, well equipped and beautifully presented. The home was convenient as it was nearby many restaurants,near the beach and close to downtown Toronto. Shannon welcomed us to the property leaving us information on things the family could do, additionally whenever there was a problem she contacted and responded to us very quickly. Without a doubt i would recommend this property for anyone to stay in.
