Delsuites Offers Convenient Accommodation During Home Renovations

September 27, 2019

Renovating your home? Get out of the dust and noise and into a furnished Toronto apartment rental.

If you are currently undergoing a renovation on your home, there are a lot of advantages to vacating the property while the work is going on. You may want to stay put, but sticking around during a renovation can be stressful and can delay the progress.

Why You Should Find Accommodation During Home Renovations

Here are some of the reasons to find somewhere else to stay during a remodel:

– Although rentals do cost extra money, it can also cost money if you stay at home and you are in the way. Many contractors will charge more for projects where clients stay in the house, as this can slow down the construction process and cause additional cleanup costs.
– If the remodel is extensive (for example, if the roof or walls will be removed), the contractor may need to turn off your electricity, heating or air conditioning – which will make your home unlivable.
– The noise caused by home renovations can be stressful for cats and dogs. There is a greater likelihood that they will escape via a door or window left open.
– There will be loud noises, plenty of dust and non-functioning bathroom facilities. This can make your home very unpleasant to live in during the renovation.
– You may be paying contractors by the hour. If you end up in long conversations with them, you will end up paying more for the project. It’s better to let them do their work uninterrupted and check in occasionally.
– If the kitchen is being renovated, you face the option of eating out in restaurants or eating processed, microwaved meals for several weeks or months. This is neither affordable nor healthy.

Also, just being involved in the day to day action of a remodeling project can be draining. There’s something nice about being able to escape to clean and quiet accommodation during renovations. You can let the contractors do their job and then return home to a beautifully remodeled home.

Delsuites: The Ideal Temporary Accommodation During Home Renovations

Toronto – A Pet-Friendly City

September 20, 2019

Although Toronto is one of the largest, busiest and densest cities in Canada – it is surprisingly pet-friendly.

In fact, Torontonians love their animal friends. According to city planning staff, there are three to five dogs per floor in Toronto condos. There’s a growing number of dog-friendly establishments in the downtown area, and the general attitude to canine companions is a welcoming one.

In fact, Toronto condos are beginning to build in pet-friendly features to attract a clientele with canine companions – such as dog grooming services, dog parks, pet shops and pet-friendly cafes.

The Livmore is a great example. On the fifth floor of this chic, stylish downtown Toronto apartment building you will find a convenient dog-friendly area – which is home to a pet spa and an outdoor play area known as the “Bark Park.” This area, lined with artificial turf, features fire hydrants, benches and even a mini obstacle course for dogs to play on.

The pet-friendly aspects of the Livmore are just one of the many examples of how Toronto offers our furry friends a warm welcome.

What Makes Toronto Pet-Friendly?

Let’s take a look at some of the other aspects of the city that make Toronto a great place to hang out with your canine companion.

Welcoming Shops

Many of the boutiques and shops between Bathurst and Gladstone are dog friendly and won’t mind if you bring your pooch in with you while you look around. They might even offer water and treats for your furry friend.

Laid Back Breweries

If you want to enjoy a local beer, there are many places where you can bring your four-legged companion. For example, at local craft brewery Henderson Brewing, they host monthly dog friendly events and dogs are always welcome whenever you stop in for a tasting.

Green Spaces

There are many great parks and wilderness areas scattered throughout the city where you and your dog can get some exercise and fresh air. For example, downtown Toronto borders Lake Ontario to the South, so you can head down to the waterfront to take a stroll along the boardwalk.

There’s also Trinity Bellwoods park, which features a Dog Bowl off-leash area, where you and your pooch can hang out with many other dogs of Toronto and their owners.

Pet-Friendly Transport

Dogs are allowed on the Toronto transport system of buses, streetcars and subways – as long as it is outside of rush hour. So, you can bring your pooch on public transport and explore the city with them!

Canine-Loving Eateries

While most cafes and restaurants in Toronto will not allow your dog inside due to health and safety laws, there are still plenty of dog-friendly places to eat. For example, at Lick It Gelato on Queens Quay West, your pooch is welcome and they even sell a “doggie gelato” that is dairy and sugar free.

Tips for Packing Your Bags Without Stress

September 6, 2019

Packing your bags with everything you need for a trip, without bringing too much, can be a challenge.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of saying, “I’ll bring this along, just in case.” Before you know it, you have a suitcase that is overflowing with “just in case” items and is impossible to carry. Bringing an over-packed bag with you can actually make your vacation more stressful. You’ll struggle to drag it around and you’ll have to pay more in excess baggage fees.

However, with a few tips you can reduce the amount of stuff you bring with you and make packing a lot less stressful. Here are our helpful tips for packing your bags:

Packing Your Bags, The Smart Way

– Buy a smaller bag. We have a tendency to fill whichever bag or backpack we bring with us, so choosing a smaller bag will force you to be more minimal.
– Packing cubes are your best friend. They will allow you to organize your clothes according to category (pants, shirts, underwear, etc.) Then, you can bring out only the cube you need rather than having to unpack your entire bag.
– Choose clothing from lightweight but high-performance fabrics like merino wool, which will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
– When traveling in an unpredictable climate, bring multiple layers rather than one large coat. Bring your bulkiest coat on the plane so you don’t have to squeeze it into your luggage.
– Make sure that everything mixes and matches. All your tops should be able to be worn with all your bottoms. If not, it’s not worth bringing.
– Bring along items that do double duty. For example, a sarong can be used as a shawl, a swimsuit cover-up, a towel, a scarf and a blanket. A pair of dressy flip flops can be worn to the beach as well as out to a restaurant in the evening.

Packing cubes are your best friend!


– Stick with neutral colours so that everything will match, then add visual interest with scarves and accessories.
– You only need to pack enough clothes for 7 days, even if you are traveling for months at a time. You’ll simply need to wash them at your accommodation (if you’re in a furnished apartment with laundry) or find a laundromat once per week.
– Roll your clothing rather than folding it. Your clothes will take up less room and will look less wrinkled when you unpack them.
– Roll your socks and underwear into balls and place them inside your shoes. Why waste the space within the shoes?
– Don’t bother bringing toiletries you know your hotel or apartment will offer, or that you will be able to buy cheaply in your destination.
– Pack the heavier items at the bottom of your suitcase, as this will make it easier to roll your bag. Also, it will be less likely to tip over.

Last but not least, consider making a list of everything you packed and actually used on your trip. Next time you travel, you’ll be able to refer to your list and pack only the items you’ll need and nothing else.

5 Reasons to Live in North York, Toronto

August 2, 2019

Known as Toronto’s “Second Downtown,” there are a lot of reasons to live in North York. This neighbourhood is buzzing with great dining, nightlife and things to do – it’s hard not to love it!

Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why North York is such a Toronto hotspot.

1. There are Plenty of Multicultural Festivals

North York is an incredibly multicultural neighborhood, which means there are plenty of great festivals throughout the year that celebrate the diversity there. There’s the Iranian Festival, the Korean Harvest Festival, the Aloha Festival, the Hispanic Fiesta and more.

Many of the public festivals in this neighbourhood take place in Mel Lastman Square, named after a previous mayor of North York. These events are a great opportunity to listen to diverse music, taste cuisine from around the world and learn about another culture.

2. Public Transit Connections Are Great

When you live in North York, you might not be right in the centre of downtown but you will be connected to the city by some very convenient public transit links. You can take the Yonge-University Line 1 to and from many major stations, including Finch, North York Centre and Sheppard-Yonge. You’ll also have easy access to major highways including the 407 and 401.

3. The Museums and Historic Sites Are Excellent

A lot of history has taken place in North York, which means that there are plenty of interesting sites to explore. For example, one of the best is Gibson House – a heritage museum that contains a fascinating collection of 19th century art pieces. They tell the story of the evolution of North York through the years. To learn more about the history of North York and learn about events and workshops in the area, you can visit the North York Historical Society.

4. You Can Shop Until You Drop

If shopping is your favourite pastime, living in North York will make you feel spoiled for choice. It’s home to two of the five major shopping malls in Toronto – the Fairview Mall and the Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Plus, there’s also several other shopping centres. These include the Sheppard Centre, the Shops at Don Mills, Yorkgate Mall, Sheridan Mall, Bayview Village and Centrepoint Mall. No matter what you’re hunting for, you’re sure to find it.

Because North York is one of the most culturally diverse regions in Toronto, it boasts a superb collection of restaurants. From authentic Asian cuisine to North African flavours to Italian dishes, you can find pretty much anything you may be craving.

Medical Stays in Toronto: What You Need to Know

July 26, 2019

If you are traveling for medical treatment – it can be a stressful experience.

Unlike traveling for a vacation, when you travel for medical stays in Toronto you may need to stay for awhile and you may be in some state of discomfort. This is why having a comfortable place to say is so important.

The short term, furnished apartments at The Livmore provide a convenient environment where you can rest and feel at home – which will help aid you in your recovery during medical stays in Toronto.

Toronto’s Medical System

Canada has a publicly funded, private provided healthcare system. Public Health Insurance is handled at a provincial level and when you go to see a doctor, it is covered by the taxes you pay.

This health-care system has an excellent reputation around the world and many international tourists visit to seek out treatment in high quality private clinics. In addition to the many robust public health facilities in Toronto, there are also a collection of high end clinics that offer treatment from doctors and specialist staff. (Here’s a guide to the best and worst hospitals in Toronto, from local website blogTO.)

Whether you’re coming to Toronto for a necessary operation, an examination or a cosmetic procedure, you’ll find the medical care in this city top notch.

Priorities for Your Medical Stay

When it comes to planning for a medical-related trip to Toronto, the following considerations will need your attention:

– Cutting down on expenses. Medical treatments are a large expense, so anything you can do to save money in other departments is desirable. A short term rental offers better value compared to a hotel, so you can cut costs here.
– Cooking for yourself. When you are recovering from a surgery or an illness, you might need to adjust your diet. Also, you might not feel like dining out in a restaurant every night. Having your own kitchen allows you to prepare the food that suits your needs – in the privacy of your home away from home.
– A home-like atmosphere. It’s hard to relax fully in a hotel room, as it doesn’t give you the feeling of being at home.
– Longer-term stay options. Chances are, if you are visiting Toronto for medical reasons, you might need to stay for awhile as you recover. Furnished apartments offer longer term rental options, so you can take your time.
– Necessary medications. Make sure that you have a prescription for all medications that you will need to carry you through the duration of your stay – including painkillers and antibiotics. If you need to stock up, there are many pharmacies located nearby in downtown Toronto.
– Friends and family. Recovering from an operation or an illness is much easier when you have loved ones around to support you. Staying in a furnished apartment with multiple bedrooms allows you to bring companions along who can assist.
