About the property

A uniquely spacious family home, 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms close to lake & parks

SEE A VIDEO of our home in the photo section (# 25) to get a flavor of what it looks and feels like.

Our home, Red Canoe Studio, is great gathering place for family and friends coming to Toronto. Whether it's to see your favourite teams play, artists, musicians, dancers, film festivals, theatre or shop, our beautifully spacious ground level loft is the perfect place to launch your visit. Our cleaning team, The Sunshine Girls, headed by Magdalena keep our home absolutely spotless and attractive for your arrival.

It was once a cider mill back in the 1800's when the neighborhood was an apple orchard. You feel like your in Italy sitting on the European style patio. Everyone who has stayed in our 2500 square foot warehouse conversion home in Toronto's east-end has commented on what a rare jewel our home is tucked away in the middle of a city. For sure, when we first discovered it, we knew we had found something truly "unique."

There is radiant floor heat throughout used in the late fall and winter, 14 foot ceilings, bamboo floors in the main space and polished dyed concrete, Italian style, in the bedrooms with throw rugs. There are three bedrooms; one queen master bedroom has an en suite with soaker tub, bidet and 2 person shower. Off of the bedroom is a walk in laundry room with sink and ironing board; one bedroom with a queen; one bedroom with two twins/ or a king. Our home sleeps six in the bedrooms but it will accommodate 7 altogether with an extra if you need it with an extra cot.The second bathroom with a shower is off the living room. There is an upright piano for the musically inclined in the open concept living/kitchen/dinning area that is 1500 sq ft and a 10 person beautiful oak dinning table.

Note that we are a short walk around the corner to Cassels Avenue Playground ( and splashpad), a beautiful 1.6 hectare treed park. And, it's a 15-minute walk through the back neighbourhood to the beach and boardwalk (or a 7-min car ride)

Enjoy our stereo with tons of CDs or plug in your own device for your own music. We have Wi-Fi and a 43" smart TV and access to Netflix/ YouTube along with a DVD collection. We still have them! From Winnie The Pooh and The Wizard Of Oz to a Ghibli Japanese animation film set to Blade Runner and the Matrix.

Outside from late spring to fall is our lush garden filled with ferns and hostas and other beauties. At your finger tips, outside the front door, is basil and mint for your cooking use as well. At the other end is our easy to use Weber barbie with a cast iron grill.

When you come to Red Canoe Studio you don't need to worry about a thing. Shampoo, conditioner, body soap, towels, wash clothes and quality sheets are provided. We'll get you a toothbrush if you forget yours.

Also know that we have a massage therapist/yoga teacher who is willing to come to Red Canoe Studio (upon availability of your visit) to help keep you tuned up and healthy. You just need to ask and we can help hook you up.

We are a smoke free and pet free space, friendly for environmentally sensitive folks and wheelchair friendly.


Generally arrivals are from 3 pm on and departures at 10 am but we are flexible and if we can accommodate our guests schedules we will try.
