Welcome to our private, open concept, cozy studio in the trendy Beach neighbourhood. Secluded street one minute walk from the lake. Steps from the TTC, (Public Transit), Queen St. East shopping, restaurants and bars.
Welcome to the Beach!
This is a private and cozy, non-smoking, pet-free basement apartment that is newly furnished and fully equipped.
** Please take notice: In our continued efforts to be transparent, this is a centenarian home in an historic, beautiful and quaint, old neighbourhood. The house has its own quirks and as in all old homes sounds can travel. We have tenants upstairs, if you're sensitive to the footsteps that can travel between floors please consider this.
There is one bedroom in an open concept space, as shown in photos. There is a full double bed and closet with hangers. There is also a fold-out futon for a third guest.
There is a full kitchen with an oven, fridge, toaster, microwave, kettle, coffee press and necessities such as sugar, spices, complimentary coffee and tea and some other bonuses. The kitchen has double glass doors which allows for plenty of sunlight. The doors walk out to the private patio with table and chairs.
The Living Area:
There is a separate living area with a fold-out futon, a new flatscreen TV with Netflix, and a dining table with two chairs (extra fold out chairs available).
There is a private, two-piece bathroom with a separate shower.
Please enjoy free, high-speed, unlimited WIFI and Netflix. When you are outside the home doing your thing, you can obtain free internet access all over the city.
There is a solar-powered laundromat on Queen St. less than a two minute walk from the apartment.
There is free, daytime street parking on your street. **To park after midnight until 8am, you will need a temporary street permit from the city which is inexpensive and easily obtained online, but please let us know if you need to purchase one and we can certainly help in arranging that for you.
The location is on one of the most sought-after and secluded streets in the trendy Beach neighbourhood and, literally, a thirty second walk to the beach, lake and boardwalk. It is also less than a minute walk to Queen St. where you will find everything you need: Grocery stores, boutique shopping, restaurants and bars, hip pubs, cafés and "The Fox Theatre" (an historic repertoire movie theatre).
We will meet guests at the location to provide a set of keys. Guests have access to the private terrace at the back but not the back garden (back garden is for the upstairs tenants). There is no access to the rest of the house as this is a separate, fully contained apartment.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
Hey, I'm Carlos. I love traveling! I started traveling on my own when I was 15. I hitch-hiked from Toronto to Montréal with $5.00 in my pocket for a week. It was a project created by a buddy and myself. We each returned with 75 cents.
I've slept on University grounds, on strangers' floors and in youth hostels. I've also stayed in villas with private swimming pools in Saint Bart's and the Amalfi Coast.
There's nothing better than seeing the world and meeting people from different cultures than your own. I've always appreciated that our best memories of a place are linked to the people we've met there.
I'm a self employed musician and a film and television composer. Through that work I've been fortunate enough to combine two of my favourite passions; music and travel.

My wife and I have traveled together to Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica, France, San Francisco, LA, New York, New Orleans, Québec City. She has lived in Barcelona and we both speak English, Spanish and French.
