Our family lives in a 3 bedroom House in one of Central Toronto's latest "gentrified" neighborhoods. We have 3 children, but all are young adults living on their own.

We are in a very convenient location, 5 minutes from trendy Greektown and the Beaches neighborhood and a 3 minute walk to the subway. We are within walking distance of several parks, including a whole ravine system that runs throughout the city. We are also a 3 minute walk to the bustling Danforth that boasts many unique restaurants, fruit markets and interesting shops. This is a safe and multicultural neighborhood that has a lot to offer visitors and allows them the opportunity to live among the locals in a very tight-knit and friendly community.

Our neighborhood is very family-friendly and we have a community centre and playground right across the street from our home as well as a library within a 3 minute walk from our home. We have a lovely backyard, which is open-concept to our neighbors and has a patio set and barbecue for your enjoyment. Our house was built in 1926, but has had many upgrades since then.

Guests will stay in their own self-contained 800 square foot one bedroom apartment within our home and can feel free to mingle as much as they want with our family. There is room to accommodate up to four guests at one time. There is also a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities that will allow you to cook your own lunch and dinner, if you choose and do your laundry onsite, while you relax.

Our family loves music and we enjoy having sing-songs and playing our grand piano. You are welcome to join us, if you choose. We look forward to hosting you and making your stay in beautiful Toronto a very pleasant and memorable one!

    Theresa is an amazing host. She welcomed me and my family warmly and was prompt about all the details and even had a delicious breakfast waiting for us. Everything that she advertises is there. The place was clean and the beds were comfortable. The area is a residential area that has a bunch of places to eat at in the area. All in all, this place was great with a great host and my kids really enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend visiting for business trips or vacations!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
