Mike was quite helpful and understanding. Any time I got lost whether it be in Toronto or in what things I needed to do he was polite and guiding. Would more than gladly stay with him again.
Mike was a wonderful host, putting a first time traveler at ease. Helpful and willing to getting me settled it made my visit a pleasure. The Beaches, considered one of Toronto's most up and coming areas has a unique mix if anything you may be looking for. Hills with beautiful tree lined streets, Lake Ontario, shops and restaurants just a few steps Mikes location was ideal.
We are Japanese, and we stayed Mr. Mike's home for about one week.
He was really kind and nice, and he gave us a few of clear rules.
We want to say to Mr. Mike thank you very much. We spent really good time!
Mike is a very friendly and helpful host! His house is just like as described in the pictures and the neighborhood is fantastic, calm, safe and a short walk from Queen's 501 street car line to downtown. There's always fresh milk and apples on the fridge and you feel comfortable to bring your own food to cook in his kitchen. I certainly recommend Mike's homestay!
Mike has been a great host. Since from the beginning he was always communicative. It was my first time in Toronto and without Mike's advises could lose a lot of time, energy and concentration in many dimensions. I am thankful to come across Mike's place.
