Great stay, clean and well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

Huu and his wife take pride in their beautiful property, extremely clean and organized. We had a small family gathering for a week in August. The house was perfect for 4 adults and 3 tweens. The front has a fun koi pond, the rear has a lovely rose garden extending all the way to the waterfront. The interior is very clean and neat, well laid out for a family reunion. Towels, linens, and kitchen was well stocked. Jet pool in the sunroom was a hit, as well as the stone patios. The front of the house has road noise from the QEW, but the rear is very peaceful. We were able to fish, paddleboard, and enjoy the distant view of Toronto from the living room and decks.

Some landscaping work needed to be done both by the owners and the town daily during our stay, which created some inconvenience. This house would be good for a quiet, non-additional visitors gathering. The owners frowned on having dinner guests without advance notice, thus the docking of 1 star. Otherwise, I respect the owner's rules for the house and it is overall a fantastic rental.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the business from Ted Wu and his extended family. Ted should be aware of and follow the house rules that he confirmed and agreed to before booking. Not only do we “frown” on but are also distressed when suddenly we find 3 extra young kids running around the garden, lake, creek, pond and pool on our property. Ted did not mention his visitors which he met in town and invited them over to our place. When both parents were deeply engaged in talking, his 3 teenagers without his control, took our yard bricks and began to build a beaver dam in the creek running along our property line. A few years ago beavers built a dam there that flooded the whole area. We were lucky to find out what the teenagers did and asked them to stop. We talked to Ted but he said nothing and neither he nor his family helped us fix the mess they made or even helped us retrieve the bricks from the fast running creek. Anyways, it is good that Ted mentioned about “no visitors allowed without host’s agreement before booking.” We have to know how many extra people and how many young kids will come before sending an approval to book. Our guests' safety is always our top priority, not our profit.

Spectacular Home with Great Management!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples stay, and there was enough room for 1 more couple, if you don't mind sharing a bathroom. Huu and his wife were great hosts, always available with a quick text, otherwise out of sight. The house was clean, organized and well stocked with all the cooking needs.

I am looking forward to a reason to visit again! It was 45 minutes from Niagara Falls (Canada side) and 60 minutes from Toronto. The house was so accommodating, that you did not want to leave it.

A definitely, "A+."

Stunningly beautiful home and location. The unobstructed views of Toronto are amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This home and it's owners are absolutely wonderful. Every detail has been thought out in both the home and the services. Our family met and stayed here during a difficult time and the soothing gardens, wonderful waterfront patio, and fully stocked home certainly helped make everyone feel more relaxed and able to focus on positive memories of a family member lost. The owners were on hand but out of sight to ensure every need was met. Booking the home through VRBO was a snap and the owners did everything possible to make the process smooth and seamless.

This home has all the upgrades you could expect with wall and ceiling shower heads, well planned out number of full and partial baths, amazing sun room with therapy pool. Linens and towels were of high quality as were the kitchenware. We will definately be booking here in the future when our family returns home for a gathering.
