Why silvano and susan guzzo chose Old Toronto
You get the best of both worlds. You can live in a quiet, safe residential area filled with century old homes, surrounded by mature trees, that range in price from 4 million to 25 million, yet be steps away from shopping and restaurants.
What makes this House unique
This property is self-contained and a detached structure. It is an independent house that means once you close your door, it is pin drop quiet. It has everything you need, from gas range to washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully stocked. It has its own heat and AC. It has a 200 sq ft deck (Brazilian ipe chestnut) overlooking a mature garden. The finishings inside this newly renovated house are prime. Where else in VRBO will you have an $8000 stove? stainless steel European washer and dryer? $6000 refrigerator? All this is accessible for a reasonable price.

Never had to use my car during my inaugural stay in Toronto. Easy 10 minute walk to subway which was clean and very user friendly. My only frustration was being in a home with a Wolf stove but not being able to use it due to lack of any basic cooking supplies like oil or basic spices. If you want to cook on this beauty be prepared to bring every single thing you would need. Hard if you’re flying.
Thanks for your comments. It’s difficult to keep all supplies on hand, and in our experience, the majority of guests don’t cook, but there are many food stores nearby that carry smaller quantities of the basics for guests that prefer to cook.
Great location in quiet neighborhood
We had a great time staying at this little coach house. It was just what we wanted - private, easy walk to the metro, just the right amount of space. Minus a few amenities (box of tissues and dish soap), the place was perfect. Susan was good about getting back to me via email when I had a question, and the free parking, wonderful accommodations, and lack of noise were what made our vacation a treasure.
I loved the place. It was quiet, clean and the yard was beautiful. I definitely recommand this place. Susan was very responsive too.
Highly recommended! 5 plus stars 🌟
We recently stayed here for two nights at the end of our vacation. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice. First, the owners were so helpful & responsive. Our flight arrived in Toronto @ 06.00. Susan allowed us to store our cases at a nearby property & check in early at 12.00. A very nice touch. On check out day our flight wasn’t until 22.00. Again Susan arranged for our cases to be stored so we could explore the city.
The unit was amazing, it had everything you could need, we didn’t do any cooking inside but the washer & dryer came in very useful. We were at the end of a month long vacation so were short on clean clothes 😂
The location was fantastic, a short walk to some great restaurants and shops. The metro was also only 8 mins walk away. The city is very walkable, in fact during our stay we walked over 30km exploring different parts of the city. The property is in a very luxurious area, there are some seriously nice properties around it. We spent a couple of hours just waking around the local area dreaming of owning one 😂
Would we stay here again ? 100%
Thank you Susan & Silvano, we hope to be back one day.

Great rental but needs some minor fine tuning
This property is well priced and in a great location. Owner communication was immediate. Minor furniture changes from the advertised photos. Living room has down filled items so those with allergies take note. Bathroom needs some tuning but only minor. Cannot control water temperature on shower, it's hot or nothing. Sink cannot get cold water unless on wide open plus water splashes all over the counter due to the design. Mirror is too low so is basically useless unless you squat down. It needs to be wall mounted. Owner does not supply kleenex so bring your own if you get morning sniffles or have allergies. The door was unfinished but functional and some ceiling lights were not working. As I mentioned these are all minor in the big picture but hopefully will get addressed to enhance the entire experience.
Overall our 4 night stay was enjoyable and I would highly recommend this property.
Notwithstanding the 5 star review, we are surprised at the comments of these guests, as none of the issues they appear to have focussed on, apart from a comment about the shower water temperature (which we have reviewed and determined not to be an issue), were once raised with us directly during our numerous conversations. The focus then was effusive praise for the beautiful gardens surrounding the coach, and the impressive kitchen appliances (wolf gas stove) on which their son cooked them a fabulous meal. So, there is considerable incongruity between our personal intracttion and some of the comments made. As hosts, we strive to provide a setting that is inviting and believe we have achieved that, a belief that is supported by the vast majority of guest comments. Of course, there is always room for improvement and we do appreciate guest feedback, and in fact ask our guests to tell us if anything is not operating as it should. So if a light goes out, which will happen as bulbs do burn out, we expect guests to tell us so we can address the issue contemporaneously. However, if Kleenex tissue is more important, a hotel stay may be more appropriate in future, where one can enjoy all the tissue one could want, in a tiny room, without fabulous appliances or a lush garden.
Amazing Carriage House and location
This was our first VRBO experience and wow was it a great one. Impeccable Carriage House that was even better in person vs. the beautiful photos provided on the site. Amazing location for us on a stunning street. 10 minute walk to downtown and very easy to walk and cab to the sites. We drove 9 hours from NY and only needed the car once for the week, to go to the zoo. Highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone. If we make it back to Toronto we now know where to stay!
We’re so glad you enjoyed our coach house and that we played a part in making your first VRBO experience a positive one. You were delightful guests and we thank you for your very kind comments about your stay.
The coach house on the grounds of historic Scarthmore House is located in Mid-town Toronto, only a few minutes walk from Yonge and Bloor Street, and minutes walk to both major subway lines. Yorkville shopping and dining area is about a 10 min walk.
Scarthmore House is a century home (circa 1910) in Rosedale, an upscale residential neighbourhood in close proximity to all the city's attractions. It's streets are lined with mature trees and well manicured gardens and it is surrounded by parks and ravines and some of the best walking and biking trails in the city. However, it is also in close proximity to world class shopping and dining. Literally, the best of both worlds.
