Style Notes

Modern family. This spacious and light-filled open plan family home has modern sleek design and is family friendly. Large sliding doors allow you to open up the living space at the back of the house to the garden and enjoy the indoor-outdoor flow and the sun on the deck. A snug front room is lined with books and painted in dark grey for extra coziness. Upstairs, bedrooms are clean and well designed, with plenty of light. We love the black kitchen with its wicker bar stools, and wonderful living space at the back of the house.

We had a fantastic winter holiday at the Herbert Residence. The house is gorgeous: the perfect combination of beautiful, high end details and cozy family living. We had a 1.5 and 3 year old with us and they loved the toy selection and all the children’s books. The adults appreciated the well-organized kitchen, large living space, and comfy beds. The neighborhood is really cute and we loved all of Clare’s recommendations for restaurants and coffee shops. Access to transit couldn’t have been easier—we took overland, underground, and busses with ease. We can’t wait to go back!

We had a fantastic stay at the Herbert Gardens Residence. The house is very stylish with tons of nice design touches but nothing felt too precious and we we were able to all relax with a 10 year old, a 7 year old and our 1 year old daughter. There was loads of room for the family to stretch out, and ample toys, books and baby gear for our littlest. Great access with local buses and trains, but everything one would need is in walking distance, with fantastic Queen's Park about a 15-20 minute walk away. We loved our time here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Thanks Clare for hosting our family!
