House Rules

Cigarette smoking (outside) allowed. No drugs onsite. This is an LGBTQ friendly space with an animal on premises. Intolerant attitudes of all kinds is not the best fit here, as this is an apolitical space welcome to people of diverse perspectives, cultural and social backgrounds, and affiliations. Excessive noise and large gatherings in the space are to be avoided. Payment will be requested, in full, by e-transfer upon arrival, and guests will have access to the space, but individual keys will not be given to guests unless discussed after arrival. If there are any concerns during the stay that cause us to end our agreement early, the remaining days will be refunded to you unless there have been any damages (payment will be required in those instances). The expectation is that guests tidy the space before they exit the homestay, and that on arrival at the apartment they allow for a check of luggage and clothing to avoid bringing in bugs, bed bugs etc. Good personal hygiene is also encouraged (washing hands after bathroom/washroom, regular showering/bathing) as is keeping both the common areas (kitchen, bathroom, living room) and bedroom clean.

Smoking is not allowed.

    David was a wonderful host, I will miss staying at the property with him, the conversations and his beautiful dogs. David makes you feel welcome, at home and overall really made my experience a great one. I would recommend. His space is kind and calming.

    David sets up a nice and cozy home for guests to stay. I enjoyed staying my time here and chatted with him about the local cultures. There are 2 lovely dogs to stay with guests. What a nice experience to have my first stay here

    David was incredible as a host, but more than host he was a friend for me! I love him and his pets too. David has a clean house, he is always in touch for everything you need, he is conversational and at the same time he respects your privacy. It was a home for me, I'm grateful with him, I'm going to miss him so much. I hope return one day. I highly recommend him as a host

    Séjour d'une semaine passée à Toronto, rendu incroyable en partie grâce à David. Du logement à sa personnalité en passant par ses adorables animaux et ses amis, ce détour canadien a été incroyable !
    De nombreux tips, de réels échanges sur la villes et les activités possibles... Merci David !

    This is the first time I stayed in Toronto and it could not have been better. David really made me feel comfortable. Helped me a lot and the place is amazing. It is close to a few good food joints, grocery stores and it is easy to commute to downtown with TTC.

    I stayed for 2 months at David's house. I felt welcomed by him and his two docile dogs (wonderful). The house is complete and super cozy. I definitely recommend this house to travelers who want to study, work or meet Toronto.

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?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
