About the Homestay
We are very friendly hosts who make our guests feel right at home. Our Colonial style house has beautiful gardens and is located just one block from the lake in the serene and safe neighborhood of Longbranch; just a 15 minute drive to downtown Toronto. Marie Curtis park, the waterfront trail and a beach are just a few minutes walk. Guests have a clean, private place to stay in the basement level accessible via stairs (no elevator). It is equipped with a bathroom, laundry room, Queen size comfy bed, and kitchenette (including a mini fridge and microwave - NOTE there is no stove or kitchen sink). The unit has a separate entrance so it's private. Guests have access to a beautiful backyard with a gorgeous garden to relax in and BBQ if they wish. It's the best of both worlds... Lakeside living near the city.

Nous avons passés un excellent séjour chez Deanne .

Deannes home is beautiful, clean and well presented, Deanne was amazing at letting me know what was available locally for eateries, traversing the public transport, any problems she was always on hand to deal with. Amazing person, would definitely book here again

Warm welcome and hospitality, good communication, everything provided in the accomodation, quite place.
We appreciate to use the patio for breakfast.

Deanne was an excellent host. He worried to know if he was okay and if he needed help with anything.
The room is clean, spacious and cozy. A very quiet place to rest.
The fantastic environment for jogging or taking a walk a few steps from the lake.
Lovely little place in a lovely location. Shops and the lake nearby. Deanne is a great host that gives you the privacy you need but always on call to help if needed.
Deanne was a great Hostess. The unit in the Basement was tastefully decorated and had everything you might need. A seperate kitchenette was included with microwave & fridge. There was also an array of Travel books etc. The unit was a short walk to the Lake. I will be back.
A wonderful little room with a large comfortable bed, full bath and kitchenette was all we needed for our week in Toronto. The park along the lake is within walking distance which we enjoyed an evening walk almost every night as the sun set. Deanna was also very helpful answering questions about the are.
The host cancelled the booking 9 days before the arrival date.
Deanne is a great host and this is the second time I stayed in this very peaceful abode. A bonus is the short walk to the lake.
