Short-term furnished rentals in North York are like a mixture of staying at a fancy hotel and owning a condominium. You get the luxurious feel of a furnished hotel, but with the ability to stay in a location for months at a time.
We want to do everything in our power to make your stay a success. However, when it comes to staying in North York, there are a few tips you need to keep in mind.
While you can have a great time by choosing a location at random in Toronto (it’s a great city), knowing where you want to stay can make all the difference, especially if you want to stay in North York.
In this article, we will cover the benefits of staying in North York and clear up common misconceptions that some people, especially those new to Toronto, may have when visiting for the first time.
Tip #1: North York Isn’t Downtown—But Don’t Let That Stop You
Visitors to North York sometimes believe that they will be near all the downtown action that Toronto has to offer by renting in North York. Near is relative. Given that most visitors may not bring their cars, “near” is a 20+ minute subway ride to the downtown core, at the least. For many people, this is nothing.
However, if you want to walk out of your short-term rental and be immediately where the action is, you should look for a rental closer to the waterfront.
Renting in North York is great, but expectations should be made realistic. Your first tip is to isolate neighborhoods and regions of the great city of Toronto specifically before you look into short-term rentals.
Tip #2: Expect Peace, Quiet, and a Cozy Experience
If you have ever traveled to Toronto and North York before, you will notice when you cross the invisible inner-city barrier between North York and the geographically-lower areas of Toronto.
The region of North York is quieter, fewer cars are on the road, and more local businesses are open.
The upside is that short-term renters get to experience a great time. You can do all of your shopping, sightseeing, and work in downtown Toronto, and then retreat to a cozy furnished rental.
The second tip is to determine if you want the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto or want to retreat to a cozy and quiet rental at night to prepare for the day ahead.
Tip #3: North York Has Everything The Typical Traveller Needs
Just because North York is not the downtown core does not mean that North York is a sparse desert out of Mad Max.
There are shops and shopping centers. There are diverse and multicultural neighborhoods, all with their events going on. There are parks and open pathways, where you can explore the flora and fauna of the city. There is something for everyone. You just have to plan where you want to go and what you want to do beforehand.
Barring some specific experience like a broadway show, which is typically located downtown in the Entertainment District, North York will have everything you need and want out of your Toronto experience.
The third tip is to know what you want to do, even a rough outline so that you can maximize the benefits of your rentals’ location.
Tip #4: Amenities, Amenities, Amenities
No one mentions the amenities, but we feel we should. Amenities can make or break an experience, and we want your stay with us to be your best yet.
While our rentals do include amenities, not all rentals include the same amenities. Depending on the short-term rental you select, amenities may vary.
Here are some amenities you may be able to use, depending on your rental:
- Pre-Arrival grocery shops
- Close to transit, education, and government offices
- Theatre Rooms
- Fitness centres
- Swimming pools
- Meeting rooms
- Round-the-clock security
Amenities really separate us from our competition. We offer fully-furnished clean short-term rentals designed to maximize the luxury and enjoyment of your stay.
