My stay at Karla's house has been amazing. Karla helped me a lot, right from picking me up at the airport to helping me find the best route to wherever I want to go in Toronto and even in day to day life she helps and guides me in the best way. In our conversations I get to learn a lot of things about Canada and the culture here. She cooks delicious meals, cakes and desserts and I feel like I'm eating at my own home. My experience has been so good that I didn't feel homesick even for a single day. Thank you Karla.
Having a great time staying with Karla. She is a lovely host, very kind, helpful and a great cook. Nice neighbourhood with easy access to public transport.
Karla is an amazing host. Very helpful, systematic and generous.....Karla took care of things that I had overlooked....Thanks Karla..
Karla is very kind-hearted and a good chef. Having a wonderful experience of living in her house.
The stay at Karla's house is great. She is like a mother. Always helping to improve the language with fun conversations. Definitely the best choice in Toronto !!!
Many thanks for the hospitality.
This guest awarded the host 1 heart but didn’t leave any comments.
Karla is an excellent host with kind heart and her house is very welcoming. The room is cozy and convenient. You have everything what you need for your comfort. I enjoy my stay with Karla.
I enjoyed my stay with Karla very much. She is an energenic lady who makes her home very clean and tidy. It's comfortable and conveniet when staying there. She is humor enough so you'll never feel boring.
Staying with Karla made my move to Canada a thousand times easier. An incredibly helpful host who helped me get on my feet here. I would recommend staying with Karla to anyone. I cannot say thank you enough
Karla and her family is very nice and helpful ! She picked me up from airport with no extra charge! If you are a dog person you will love shadow! The room I am still living in is small with a very big window and street view to a quiet neighbourhood! The only thing is that to go to downtown is about an hour in the morning, and to go back to the house during weekends its even longer!
