4 Tips You Should Know When Looking for Short-Term Furnished Rentals in North York 

February 24, 2021
short-term rentals

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:

  • Gym
  • Pre-Arrival grocery shops
  • Parking
  • 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.

4 Reasons Why Scarborough Apartments for Rent Are Going Fast in 2021

February 22, 2021
scarborough apartments

Are you looking for the right Scarborough apartments for rent? Finding the right place to live isn’t easy. But With DelSuites, we make finding your next place that much easier.

While Scarborough is often viewed as its own city or region by visitors, it’s very much part of the City of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Invisible borders and boundaries detach it from Toronto and the downtown Toronto core, but traveling to and from Scarborough and Toronto is quick and easy. 

Even if you work or study in Toronto, living in Scarborough can be a great experience. In this article, we’ll discuss why you should consider a Scarborough apartment for your short-term stay and why others are renting and buying in too. 

1. There’s Limited Space in Toronto

Space is limited in Toronto. With zoning bylaws, existing structures, and high population density, there’s only so much real estate to go around. This can make it difficult for renters to find that perfect place in Toronto. 

While Scarborough is considered its distinct area, it’s still a part of Toronto. If you are in Toronto to work or looking to experience a new area of the city, try a Scarborough apartment for rent near the Old City boundaries. 

2. It’s a Landlord’s Market

We’re living in a landlord’s market—and thanks to the pandemic—many people are staying put. Low vacancy rates, high demand, increasing rents, and similar factors favor landlords in the housing market. 

A landlord’s market is not a new phenomenon in Toronto either. When you have a world-class city, it shouldn’t surprise you that people want to move here.

This is not a description of doom and gloom for the average renter, though. When you are in a landlord’s market, it’s an excellent time to participate as well, even for a short time with a short-term rental. 

Scarborough is a great city to work in, live in, and our units are kid-friendly, making it a suitable alternative to the hustle and bustle of the downtown core.

3. More People Are Migrating to Toronto for Work

Toronto is a world-class city. Many things are happening in the city, especially for youths and young working professionals. 

The city features its own financial district with many established companies. Our universities are among the best in the world. Many sports teams train and play here. This makes Toronto an attractive place for families, working professionals, and business travel.

4. Toronto’s Real Estate Market Continues to Boom

Many residents and visitors, both from overseas and around Canada, migrate to Toronto. Toronto offers that big city feel, an enriching cultural experience, and straightforward transit routes. 

Education is also excellent in Toronto, with many world-class institutions and the downtown core featuring several notable hospitals, clinics, and other professional services.

But with this attraction comes a price—high rents and limited apartments. These real estate trends are one of the main reasons why Scarborough continues to grow in popularity for families and professionals looking for a more affordable place to live. 

The DelSuites Difference: Great Locations & Exceptional Service

DelSuites offers furnished short-term apartment rentals, perfect for the staycationer or short-term student or businessperson. With access to local events and attractions, shops, and transit lines, you can go and do many different activities in the greater city area, as long as you abide by lockdown rules (which are temporary, given that we have vaccines now).

Scarborough features an incredible amount of diversity, and various cultures are promoted and celebrated throughout the city, providing you with a global experience at a fraction of the cost of a plane ticket.

DelSuites provides short-term rentals, furnished apartments, and hotel apartments for clients, ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible for your stay. Our apartments are clean, safe, and hospitable, making them the perfect option for anyone looking to live in Toronto.

DelSuites is also taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously. Our cleaning staff use disinfectant cleaners with bleach, which have always been a part of our high standard cleaning practices. We also offer clients their own set of cleaning supplies (by request), so you can continue to feel safe and clean throughout your stay.

Executive Suites in Mississauga: Are They Toronto’s Next Hotspot?

February 16, 2021

Short-term rentals are the best-hidden secret for vacationers, remote workers, and traveling businessmen and women. You can stay in great rentals, thoroughly- cleaned and furnished for your most immediate needs, while you stay in Mississauga, a great city and part of the Greater Toronto Area. 

A cut above our other short-term rentals, we have executive suites available for traveling businessmen or women. 

Whether you need to stay in town a few months to oversee a merger or want to vacation between dealings at the office, we have the perfect executive suite for you in Mississauga.

Do You Need an Executive Suite?

Are you an executive? Then, yes. Seriously though, if you are staying at one of our short-term rentals for work purposes, we recommend that you choose an executive suite. These suites, and the amenities in them, will help you relax and prepare for the busy workdays you have ahead of you. 

Similar to flying in first-class rather than economy so you can rest before a big meeting, staying in an executive suite so you can perform your best where it counts, is the best strategy for success. 

We have executive suites near the financial district, or you can opt for an executive suite located in a quieter location a bit farther away. 

Why You Will Love Our Executive Suites

Our executive suites in Mississauga are located in prime Mississauga neighborhoods, featuring luxurious amenities and a contemporary, furnished interior decoration.

With over 20 locations spread over the Greater Toronto Area, you can be as close to the city’s hustle and bustle as you want or the Toronto suburbs’ coziness and quiet. 

We have suites available of any size, from one-bedroom executive suites to 3-bedroom townhomes, perfect for a corporate family vacation.

The Benefits of Executive Suites in Mississauga

Executive suites also offer support from building staff. Standard DelSuites amenities include:

  • A state of the art entertainment system (television, cable package, DVD/CD players)
  • Professionally-cleaned and sanitized interiors
  • Spare linens
  • Bathroom products and toiletries
  • 24-hour security
  • Secure parking in a safe location
  • in-house or nearby recreational facilities (depending on your activity preferences)
  • A full cooking suite (fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher)

All these amenities and more can be yours. Executive suites are a cut above, so you are always getting excellent service for a great price.

Executive suites also offer business-centric advantages. They are often either deliberately set up for business or are amenable to added office space. With DelSuites, you can:

  • Host meetings 
  • Video conference
  • Catch up on office work
  • Use a WiFi connection
  • Meet with local clients
  • Stay in touch with free local and North American long-distance calling
  • And much more

It is not all work and no play, though. Executive suites also offer eating areas, sleeping areas, and lounging/recreational areas. If you rent a large area, perhaps a 3-bedroom condo or townhome for your 30+ day stay, you can quite literally cordon off entire sections of a home-based on your corporate needs.

Mississauga Offers Great Attractions and Events to Check Out On Your Stay

Although the pandemic has shuttered some attractions and stopped some events from occurring, there is still a lot you can do and experience in Mississauga while still wearing a mask, keeping your distance from others, and following other public health guidelines. You can still:

  • Visit Celebration Square
  • Check out the Civic Centre
  • Take an art class
  • Play a round of golf
  • Take a boat trip to the marina
  • Experience Meadowvale Theatre
  • Visit the Bradley Museum
  • Enjoy Paramount Fine Foods Centre

In Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Area by extension, there is always something happening.

You can also stay inside. You can also take advantage of virtual entertainment options with your full-furnished entertainment system. Watch the new Netflix episode or movie, listen to the classics with your state-of-the-art sound system, or just relax by watching cable television. 

The DelSuites Executive Difference

At DelSuites, we offer premium living staycations to prospective clients. As an executive, you need a prime rental for short-term availability at the best location possible for your needs. 

We can offer that. Staying in an executive suite may make all the difference at work. You can view all available Mississauga executive suites on our website or contact us directly for more details on our current vacancies.
