They are located in a very central downtown location. Both apartments are fully furnished and fully equipped with amenities to provide the best in efficiency and comfort. The original Executive Underground Apartment and the recently added Executive Annex Suite provide living accommodation and parking for your short or long stay in downtown Toronto.
Toronto B&B Apartments a Unique Concept
Many of us have visited Bed and Breakfast establishments for vacation or even business travels. The usual locations are medium or large scale private homes, in which the owner has set up a number of bedrooms, sometimes with ensuite washrooms, to accommodate overnights guests. These guests may stay one or two nights or even a week or two, sometimes longer.
Very often the homes are attractive vintage or historical in nature, with perhaps, Victorian architecture. They are furnished sometimes with period pieces suitable for the home itself. Breakfast is often provided in a common dining room on the main level, where guests can mingle and chat over coffee and croissants, eggs Benedict or whatever is on the menu. It is often a very lovely and memorable experience.
Not Your Grandmother’s Basement!
The Toronto B&B Apartments do not provide this type of bed and breakfast experience. The idea behind a bed and breakfast apartment, as distinct from a single room, is that you get a whole living space which you and your family do not share any part of your accommodation with other guests. The apartment has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen/dining room and a living room (with a sofa-bed), which is private to you and your companions. Furthermore, you have your own front door to the street and you have no need to go through any other part of the house. You are not only private within your apartment, you are private in your coming and going to and from the apartment. Go out as early as you like, return as late as you like. AND, get this, have your breakfast at any time you wish! Six in the morning, 11:30 brunch! Please yourself. The catch is, that you get your own breakfast! Your fridge contains some common food for breakfast, and you get a chance before you arrive to ask for you favourite foods. This food is place in your fridge and you just help yourself. You don’t have to make supplies last, either, as items will be replenished as needed.
We call this concept, “Self-Catered.” We didn’t invent the idea, but a lot of people really appreciate the independence and privacy, especially when travelling with children. As you may have noticed, children can somewhat cranky at breakfast time when seated round a table with a number of complete strangers? Privacy with just the family often makes the difference between a really relaxed holiday and a stressful morning with the kids! You don’t have to get everyone up, showered and dressed by 8:00 am to get down for breakfast. Just hop out of bed and put the coffee on, thow a few eggs in a pan and flop down at the table or back in bed in front of you 55-inch HDTV to watch the news or the DVD you didn’t finish last night, or put the kid’s cartoons on Netflix – oh, sorry, we don’t have Neflix – but we will … soon!
“This is the best place to stay in Toronto !!! Close to all interesting spots, located in a nice street, very calm. And the apartment is perfect : big enough for 4 people, you can cook your own meal, and the included breakfast is so good !! :)” Matthieu
Garden – Executive Underground Henry is the gardener! This tiny little patch beneath a huge horse chestnut tree becomes tiny coloured jewel on the street. Roses, which somehow survive the winter along with palm trees (which overwinter indoors!), and other brightly coloured flowers, form a lush backdrop to the small[…]
The Garden Patio The patio is a work in progress. In 2013, we expanded slightly, and there isn’t a lot of space to do so. We did upgrade it in 2012, and added a cast aluminum table and chairs to go with the umbrella. Henry, as always, has big plans[…]
Travertine Bathroom The bathroom truly is the Pièce de résistance of our renovation. The floor and walls are covered in Travertine, a soft sand-coloured stone. The shower is paved with small squares of travertine in contrasting colours. You will love the restful atmosphere created by the warm natural material.
