Reviews for Christiane


December 2019 | Victorian Storefront Trendy Leslieville

This is a beautiful space for any type of event! We loved the location, the cleanliness, and layout of the space. The management is super attentive and kind. We especially loved the tables and chairs that were included with the rental. It was very practical and the style helped make our event feel more comfortable and 'at home'. We will be renting again!

In terms of accuracy from photos to actual location, my advise would be to visit the location before booking, booking solely based on the photos and you will be disappointed, for one the space is actually very small, not a lot of manipulation that can be done with the space, 8 adults walking around and the space seemed somewhat crowded, we got a flower wall that was virtually useless, absolutely no space for it, kitchen also quite small no more than 4 adults can be there at once without bumping into each other. The bathroom was clean. When renting the location there is a smell, not a bad smell, but an old smell, but I guess it has to do with the fact the location is quite old, so make sure you come with scented candles or something to override that- I do also have to say the location was not ideal, it’s way to far out and hidden, that was the topic for most of the guests, so be prepared for complaints from guests who have to come to that location, first comment when coming in was “ who chose this location”, and that’s not what you really want to answer at that time, parking was a nightmare, absolutely no parking, paid parking was available up and down the streets, which my guests were also displeased with, because it’s pretty much occupied and full, my guests were running back and forth to top up on parking meter, however pretty much every guest left with a parking ticket including myself, parking enforcement were up and down the street diligently. Communication- Very difficult to get hold of host, you will not be able to reach her via phone at all all correspondence is only via email or the website messaging portal. Confirmations and documents after booking was provided days or maybe weeks later after one or two reminders. The space did not meet my expectation at all if I am being honest, when I did visit the location a week prior to the event I was petrified as to how I was going to make it work, there is a massive table in the center of the room that an extra 75$ I believe would be charged to have it removed, and there is no option it needs to be removed as it takes up 70% of usable space. Extra decor was needed 1500 worth of decor to get the baby shower to look decent. Lastly there is a 75$ cleanup fee, please be carful with this this fee, you are responsible for the cleaning, don’t be confused. We were there an extra hour and a half cleaning up because we did not come prepared to clean as we were advised that we were only responsible for removing our items and ensuing no damages, nonetheless we cleaned up the space. The host was very nice but many of my guests did have to come into the kitchen to say the host wants to know when we will be leaving. a little embarrassing. But no big deal. All and all the shower was a success, we made the place look nice. Would I book the location or recommend, I would have to say no, I couldn’t do that with a clear conscious, if I was strapped and left with no option and needed a space, I wouldn’t because there are thousands of apartment units I can ask someone to utilize, so even then no.

The location was amazing and the venue was so quaint and cozy and provided everything we needed! Will definitely be using Vandenberg House again!

I loved having my baby shower in this space. It was open, bright and clean. Because of the amount of people in the space, including the caterer who was cooking onsite, the space did get really warm. However, it's understood that this is an older house and the AC doesn't work like it would in a brand new space. Regardless, everything was amazing. I'd host here again.

I booked this venue for my husband's surprise birthday party. Throughout the whole process, Christiane and her team were very quick to respond to any inquiry and were very accommodating and willing to help with anything. The guests all had a great time and many remarked about how unique and charming the space was.

The Vandenberg House was a great experience and we will defiantly use it again in the future :-)

Absolutely gorgeous and intimate space. Christiane is a pleasure to work with, so friendly and helpful! Looking forward to hosting more successful events here.

This space was absolutely perfect to celebrate my wife and I's wedding reception. From our first visit, we knew we had to do it, and Christiane was so accommodating and generous with us having access around the space. Everything was easy to maneuver and I would absolutely recommend it for weddings and/or wedding related events. I absolutely see us using the space again sometime in the future.

Christiane provided us with an absolutely incredible space for our reveal. We had a very specific theme and she happily accomodate removing the pictures for us for this to be fulfilled. Christiane happily answered any and all questions I had & provided staging suggestions whilst setting up. All of our guests were blown away by the space. I would hold another event here in a heartbeat & so would many of our family members. Thank you so much for making such a meaningful day so easy & carefree.


October 2018 | Victorian Event Space With Full Kitchen

The space was beautiful and clean, and Christiane was helpful and responded promptly to any questions I asked. I would definitely recommend renting this space! It is also cheaper than other options (even some smaller ones)


August 2018 | Victorian Storefront Trendy Leslieville

It was lovely to be in your space - the presentation was perfect for our event and I heard many comments on what a cool space it was. I would suggest that you let the client know in advance about those breakers - but we worked around it.


June 2018 | Boutique Historic Venue Kitchen On Site

The space was so nice and open. It was the perfect venue for our intimate dinner and Christiane was super nice. We would rent again!

I hosted my sister's baby shower here and it was absolutely perfect for the occasion! The space was exactly as pictured. It was beautiful and clean, all the furniture was available for use and for us to arrange it however we wanted. We had 16 people and the atmosphere was great for a baby shower - so intimate, relaxed and friendly. Every guest complimented us on finding such a unique venue. We brought everything with us that we would need for our party, but there were plenty of amenities and items available in the kitchen that we could have used as well. Christiane was so helpful and the whole process could not have been any easier.


May 2018 | Charming Victorian Production Space

Christiane was a great host. She was very accommodating to my requests and would reply very quickly to my emails and questions, which is so great with tight deadlines. Would definitely work with her again!


May 2018 | Boutique Historic Venue Kitchen On Site

Christiane was incredibly easy to work with. The space was exactly as advertised. It was such a great space to host my lunch and learn. I will be using this space again for sure!


May 2018 | Boutique Historic Venue Kitchen On Site

I used the space for my baby shower. We were able to fit 40 guests comfortably and everyone enjoyed the space. I would recommend this venue to anyone.


April 2018 | Charming Victorian Production Space

Very nice location. Worked well for our purposes and Christiane was very helpful and pleasant.


January 2018 | Victorian Event Space With Full Kitchen

Renting this space was the best decision I made! Christiane's space offers the perfect setting for an intimate event, or a full blown larger event. The characteristics and decor on the inside make this space very special, offering it a sophisticated yet casual style featuring one-of-a-kind antiques, velvet chairs, unique lighting fixtures, and so much more. Your guests will wonder how you pulled together such a beautiful spot. Christiane had impeccable communication with me the entire process, and even let me come to the event space a couple extra times to drop off and pickup items. with little notice. The kitchen is fully functional, and truly a lifesaver for any event. Bonus perks worth mentioning - there is ample furniture to curate your event, speakers that are fantastic, wifi, serving platters and accessories, coffee machine, and a clothing rack - so many wonderful elements that will allow you to focus on your event and not the "little stuff". Will for sure book again - thank you!!

This space is perfect for casual events. My guests and I really enjoyed the vibe and the layout was perfect for small-scale catering. It was clean and well-maintained. Christiane was easily reachable, friendly, and extremely helpful. Would not hesitate to book again!


October 2017 | Victorian Event Space With Full Kitchen

I had an amazing experience booking with Christiane. She was reliable and knowledgeable. The space was super cute and better than I expected. It was perfect for a small party. I would definitely book a space with Christiane again.


September 2017 | Boutique Historic Venue Kitchen On Site

This space is superb! Christiane was wonderful, friendly and helpful. The space is beautiful with a very fresh rustic feel. It was our first pop-up shop event and she was fantastic with giving us advice on marketing from her many years of experience. I would highly recommend this space to anyone that is looking for a unique event space, in a beautiful location, easy access by car and ttc and overall a host that goes beyond your expectations.
