The open-concept family room gets tons of light (and should probably have a no-red-wine-on-the-couch rule):

The history

The host has 18 Airbnb listings in Toronto (mostly other modern condos in the downtown core), and purchased this penthouse two-and-a-half years ago, only upgrading the lighting fixtures. The building itself is fairly new, and was built in 2012.

Major perks

With such stunning views of the city, and a pool and hottub in the building, guests can feel like they’re on holiday without ever venturing outside.

Possible deal breaker

Clumsy guests may get nervous about spilling anything on the impeccably white decor. And the lengthy list of house rules includes “no shoes in bedrooms.”
