“One of the best places to spend the holidays – or any time of year!”

This condo was the perfect place to stay!! Duane, who was ever-helpful and quick in answering any questions we had, greeted us at the condo and gave us a very thorough, personal tour of the building and the suite. The location couldn’t be better: within a 10-minute walk you could be clubbing in the fashion/entertainment district in Toronto’s heart, enjoying almost any type of food on King, or be taking a stroll along the shorelines of Lake Ontario. For larger distances, we just bought transit passes for the week and took the streetcars around. Conveniently, one stops right in front of the building every few minutes and runs 24 hours a day – fantastic!

With floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s no shortage of natural light The beds in the condo were comfortable and the washrooms large, bright, and extremely clean. The kitchen was fully equipped and we enjoyed fresh coffee and a big breakfast every morning while admiring the stunning view of the CN tower. On nights when we just wanted to relax with a big bowl of popcorn, Duane has a nice collection of movies available and a great TV to play them on. Music,

too, is always accessible through the television, CD player (if you bring your own CDs), or the convenient iPod dock!

The building has a great gym, a pool, hot tub, and a sauna. There are even yoga classes available. The staff at the front desk were always helpful and all the other tenants we met were indeed very friendly. Last, don’t forget to spend some time on the balcony! The CN tower/downtown core is on one side, and gorgeous Lake Ontario on the other. In the afternoons, you’ll be able to see the setting sun, which made for some spectacular photos – and all from the comfort of your own home!

So in short, this is definitely a place worth staying in more than once. We had a great time and were actually sad to have to leave. The minute you walk in and drop your bags, it will feel like home – Thanks a million, Duane!!!

“Unforgettable stay in Toronto!”

Chose this Condo after some research on the internet. Duane was extremely helpful prior to our trip and good communication via email. He even booked our transport from and to the airport.

On arrival met by Duane who around the condo and other amenities including pool and gym area. Condo spotlessly clean and well equipped. Home from home and brilliant if out all day to come back and have a swim whilst hubby cooked meal!!

Good location and near to entertainment district where we were attending lots of films. Tiff was a wonderful experience. Walking distance for entertainment, eating out and shopping approx 15-20 minutes but also good tram service outside Condo. Taxis also available.

Walking distance to lovely Harbour area and Gardens 10-15 minutes.

We had a brilliant holiday made all the better by Duane’s organizational help and staying in such lovely accommodation.

“Great location and superb service!”

Daniel and Duane were great to associate with for this rental. Our family of 3 enjoyed it’s location and quietness. We agree with many of the reviews in regards to the number of restaurants in the area and the quality. Duane went out of his way to show us the condo and area. Daniel was very flexible with his schedule to deal with our many questions. We would stay here again in our next visit.

“Stop Looking…This is the place to call home!!!”

Wow, no need to look any further!

We looked at several condos in the Downtown Toronto area for our winter vacation. This was by far the best condo, best location, best amenities and best price with a stunning view! It was all inclusive!

All the comforts of home, full kitchen with all the appliances, cookware, silverware, etc. Very comfortable beds in the bedrooms. 2 full bathrooms, one with a shower. Plenty of extra linens and towels with all the accessories like an iron and a hair blow dryer. A washer and dryer to do laundry with laundry products. The unit has free wireless internet access as well as plenty of DVD movies at your disposal. The unit comes with a parking space which is underground with easy elevator access to the condo unit for the comfort of those days of rain or snow. There is a very nice gym located on the 3rd floor with access to the pool, sauna, yoga room which we loved after a long day hanging out in the city. The building Concierge were very friendly and accommodating.

The location is perfect for access to the highways and downtown. You don’t need a car once you arrive. The streetcar and bus stops to downtown are across the street or you can walk to downtown in about 10 minutes. For groceries, the Metro grocery store is less than 5 minutes (by car) to stock up on those snacks and drinks while relaxing at home.

Wait, I almost forgot the best amenity… Duane. Duane was by far one of the most gracious hosts we’ve encountered! From the rental property inquiry to the moment we arrived at our condo, we couldn’t have asked for a better host! He was in contact with us once we arrived In Toronto, making sure we didn’t get lost from the airport to the condo. He greeted us at the condo and made you feel as if this condo was your condo. He was a phone call or text away if we needed him for suggestions or service.

If you are looking for a vacation and a home, stop looking! You have found the place and the host!

“Fantastic Place – Central Location – Excellent Host”

I was in Toronto for a few weeks on business and connecting with family. Daniel’s place is centrally located, close access to St. Patrick or Dundas subway. Building was great, apartment was spotless and well equipped. Added bonus was the pool, gym and sauna. Would definitely stay again. Daniel was great to deal with. Highly recommended!

Matt J - New York/Paris/Toronto

“Perfect Location!”

My husband, myself our daughter and granddaughter (19 months old) stayed here in August the location is ideal right in the centre of Toronto just a block away from Dundas Square, the Eaton Centre & TTC (the “tube”) the apartment is very clean, modern, well fitted out and provides so much more space than a hotel room with the added convenience of a full kitchen, washer dryer, etc. We knew we would not be going out of Toronto so for this trip we didn’t even hire a car – it was so easy to get around from here The area has shops, bars, restaurants but is not rowdy at all. The building has two nice gyms and a great indoor pool – the owner was great – our deposit was returned immediately and he was helpful and easy to deal with. If we ever return to Toronto I would book this apartment straight away

“Great place, great location!”

Our stay was just perfect in Toronto: the condo was comfortable (very good mattress!), well located downtown. The roof terrace was a nice plus (great view + barbecue place) and the kids loved the pool.

All communication with Daniel, the owner, were fast, simple & easy.

Clotilde - Paris, France

“An incredible location with incredible accessibility.”

I did not realize how ideal of a location this place was until my wife and I arrived. Daniel greeted us at the front of the building and showed us right into our parking location. He was courteous and informative, giving us a tour of the entire building from the pool and gym to the rooftop terrace (beautiful view, especially during thunderstorms).

This condo is literally right in the middle of everything. One block over is the Eaton Centre, the CN Tower is just about a twenty minute walk, Chinatown, Little Italy, Little Portugal is just a short walk over to the west, and the University of Toronto’s beautiful buildings display themselves with grandeur just up north. There is The Market just directly downstairs (as well as other larger grocery stores just down the street). Restaurants line the roads you are on, so there’s no chance of not finding anything to eat Museums can be found any which way you want to go. In short, if you want to go anywhere within Toronto, this is the ideal starting place. It is so ideal that my wife and I only used the public transit once during our entire 9-day stay, and once only so we would not arrive at our location somewhat sweaty (we walked back).

The place itself was very nice! There was a great outdoor patio.

The Kitchen was well equipped with a George Foreman grill, lovely plates and silverware, and we were able to spend about half of our meals eating at home. It was lovely!

There was also provided a washer/dryer combination machine. It was very nice to be able to clean the sheets and towels during the week.

In short, a highly recommended place and would definitely go again! •

“My super business trip to Toronto!!!”

Once I booked my space at the Royal Winter Fair as an exhibitor, I had to plan a hotel stay for at least 12 nights for myself (coming from Italy) and a colleague. After a long search on the web for rates and hotel location, exhausted I typed “apartments in Toronto”… and there it was, Duane’s Condo!

Perfect, 5 minute walk from the Fairgrounds (Exhibition Place), new modern building, well equipped (kitchen appliances and washer/dryer), underground garage, 5 minutes from downtown Toronto for shopping and dining!

It made my business trip so much easier, wake up at decent hours, breakfast, pack lunch (no need to eat Fair food all the time!), no rush hour to get to the Fair, no drama for parking being able to choose whether to eat at home in the evening or go out, and at the end of the day (12hr 9am to 9pm are long) it was really like going home… not to a depressing hotel room, amazing!!!

And thank you Duane for getting back to me promptly with any question I had, I will definitely be in touch for my future business trips to Toronto and the 2013 Royal!
