City Spotlight: Toronto Executive Rentals by CHBO

Toronto City life

As one of the most flourishing cities in the world, Toronto is also home to thousands of Toronto executive rentals. In 2014, we reported that the city was bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars in rental fees (this was from the Corporate Housing Providers Association or CHPA). We decided to check back in with the city to see if owners of an apartment rental in Toronto or Toronto executive rentals were still making lots of income from their investments.

It took one look at the listings for Toronto Corporate Housing to see that the city was indeed still flush with premium rentals. The city has a population of more than two million, and is the commercial capital of the nation of Canada, so it makes sense that Toronto executive rentals are in abundance.

However, if you are on the lookout for an apartment rental in Toronto (whether for business or some other sort of extended stay), you need to know that you have a lot of options. There are the wonderful and popular high rise buildings of the downtown area, where an apartment rental in Toronto is easily found. Yet, the Toronto executive rentals can also include suburban areas and single family homes. This can allow you to savor the many delights of this city without being required to commute lengthy distances to get from work and home.

As we reported in that earlier article on Toronto’s many appealing features, it “is considered the cultural, entertainment and financial capital of Canada … If you are staying in Toronto don’t miss out on the summer fun and take a long weekend up North to the lakes for fun in the sun or South to Niagara on the Lake for culture and theatre.”

Yet, there is much to see and enjoy within the city itself, and is a good reason to consider an apartment rental in Toronto for your extended stay. Not only will you find yourself within walking distance of some premiere neighborhoods, but it is quite common for such rentals to have everything from high speed internet and home offices to maid services and world-class amenities within the buildings.

Finding the Ideal Toronto Executive Rentals

How do you go about finding the right home or apartment rental in Toronto? As we previously reported, experts advise the use of seven search terms to get the most appropriate returns. This is why the CHBO site is a popular resource. It allows corporations, travelers and others to hone their searches and get only the finest options for their needs.

As an example, if a firm is sending several employees to Toronto for a long term project, it might be appropriate to seek out a multi-bedroom home or apartment in a quieter area. However, a single executive working in the downtown district might prefer an apartment with amenities like a gym, parking and more. Being able to search for these options, and enjoy high quality images and photos means that listings are more likely to get the attention they need.

If you are the owner of a Toronto property and wish to see it among the other high quality listings available, consider listing it with CHBO. They offer you an amazing array of resources (including a housing request form that lets potential renters get in touch directly with owners in specific areas) and can ensure that your target clients easily find the property based on simple but comprehensive search capabilities. They also highlight properties to help renters quickly find their perfect accommodation.

Property Spotlight: An Edwardian Executive Rental Fit for a King or Queen

Corporate housing apartment

Eclectic, diverse, and upscale. San Francisco’s Mission District has evolved over the years from gritty to trendy, worn to fresh. Hip bars, boutiques, taquerias, vegan cafes, and concert venues thrive now. The Spanish first arrived here in the 1770s; and later Irish, German, Italian and Asian immigrants made it a melting pot. Murals and Mariachis add a creative spark to a neighborhood favored by artists and highly sought after real estate. Drink craft beer and fair-trade coffee, dine at some of the city’s hottest and most innovative restaurants here in the outer Mission. Luckily, this is our stop for today’s Property Spotlight, an Edwardian that transcends even this lively neighborhood. Welcome to a CHBO Certified four-bedroom executive rental on the second floor of this Mission District Edwardian home. Completely renovated and stocked with high end materials and finishes, it’s just twenty minutes to the financial district, a block from Zuckerburg General Hospital, and close to shuttles and the BART.

The Mission District is full of trendy bakeries, coffee shops, bars, and because this is a city of the world, many restaurants serving ethnic cuisines you’ll drool over. The cities’ oldest “Soda Fountain” shop is three blocks over, and this area is host to the best Mexican restaurants in the city. You can walk or travel by bus, BART, or cable cars in San Francisco, but here you won’t need to go far. Starr King Open Space, Potrero Hill Rec Center, and McKinley Square are all nearby green spaces where you can reconnect with nature.

Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco’s Crocker-Amazon is quiet suburban neighborhood, a place to escape the chaos and bustle of the tourist districts, but with easily available public transport, lots of outdoor amenities, and some of the most varied weather in the city, with a balance of sun and fog. The top of the neighborhood boasts outstanding views of downtown San Francisco in the gap between McLaren Park and Twin Peaks. It’s an ideal place for families, but there’s still excitement nearby on Mission Street and Geneva Avenue, as these are two of the busiest streets on the south side. Shops are plentiful on Mission and there is lots to do, but with less congestion than the inner city. It’s a great place for a relocating family and it plays host for our Property Spotlight, gorgeous three-bedroom, two bath gem full of high-end finishes and comfortable living.
