Our two-bedroom apartment is a quiet oasis in the heart of the city. Minutes away from Toronto’s charming Harbourfront area, we are also located near several major universities. Our apartment is housed in a new building which has a heated indoor pool, gym, sauna and steam room, as well as several other amenities. It can be rented starting July 1.

The living room has tall loft-like ceilings with ceiling-to-floor windows and sprawling views of the city and the CN Tower. It is a clean, elegant space filled with light that has a open concept kitchen equipped with modern appliances. The living room has two desks that are perfect for working at home. It also has cozy reading nook lit with a Moroccan lamp. We both travel a great deal so the furniture and artwork comes from all over the world including metal relief sculptures, paintings from Bali and Chinese rosewood stools.

The home comfortably sleeps four. There are two spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom has ceiling to floor windows, a queen size bed and a Juliette window with views of the water. It has an ensuite bathroom with new fixtures, clad in grey marble. The second bedroom has a comfortable day bed which we just purchased that accommodates two people. Both bedrooms are carpeted and have plenty of wardrobe space.

Location is one the best parts of this home. It's 5 minutes away from Union subway station and various streetcar routes so transport is very convenient. It's also close to the highway. For out of town travel, it's right beside the city's main train station, 10 minutes from Billy Bishop Airport and you can reach the Pearson airport on a 25-minute express train. There is a grocery store right across the street and it's surrounded by restaurants and cafes. The Harbourfront comes alive in the summer time with family-friendly festivals and it has beautiful parks and biking/running trails.

Parking is available on the premises for an additional US$145/mo.

The apartment includes the following:

-Master bedroom with queen bed
-Second bedroom with daybed which covers to a comfortable double bed if needed (We just purchased a new bed so it's not the same as in the photograph)
-Ensuite laundry (washer and dryer)
-High speed wireless internet
-Full kitchen (dishwasher, oven and microwave)
-All utilities (hydro, electricity, heat and water)
-Flat screen TV
