I am a professional woman who works from home full time and am available to answer questions, offer tourists travel tips, and to help longer term guests navigate the area and acclimate to the local culture. I like to chat but am equally happy to to keep to myself. Either way, as my guest, I will respect your privacy and make sure you are comfortable as possible.
I am pescetarian/vegetarian and I am completely fine with guests cooking their own meals of whatever they like as long as they clean up after themselves.

About the Area
A quiet and safe family neighbourhood, Guildwood Village is located in the east end of Toronto atop the Scarborough Bluffs. The village boasts many excellent schools, a variety of churches, a few locally owned stores and easily accessed transit.
The area was originally established around the Guild Inn, an artists refuge, back in the 1930's. In the 1950's the land was developed into a village around The Guild, now a beautiful conference hall, which remains a highlight to visitors and locals alike. The Guild Park which surrounds the conference centre overlooks Lake Ontario and is filled with architectural sculptures and wooded trails; excellent for walks and photography.
