Located in a great community with wonderful neighbours, this 2nd floor apartment is close to all your mid-town amenities. The bright apartment includes a queen-size bed, guest room/office balcony and two full baths bathroom - it's perfect for a couple (perhaps with child) and working professionals.
This space is unique in the sense that it is essentially two one bedroom apartments attached. The kitchen and living room are bright and accommodating, while the bedroom and guest room/office are airy with direct access to the balcony. This space is quiet, private, filled with natural light and very accommodating to a guest looking for a home away from home.
The entire apartment is available! Phill and I will be sure to store our stuff in the guest room closet so that you have access to the bedroom closet. Please be mindful of our items, as we love our apartment dearly and we hope you can enjoy the space as much as we do.
We love to make our neighbourhood accessible to our guests and friends with helpful tips and a useful walking map of our favourite spots near and far in the city. We will be out of the country for work for the duration of your stay. However, we make ourselves available by email, and text primarily. We can be reached by phone immediately in an emergency.
