    I had a wonderful experience here! Palmy is a very friendly and approachable host, only too happy to help me out as a newcomer to the country. She takes every effort to regularly maintain the cleanliness of the house for the benefit of the guests. I'd love to return if I need a place in the region in the future. A big thank you to her for making my first few weeks here comfortable!

    Palmy is wonderful and helpful. I learned a lot from her about adapting to life in Toronto. The house is well organized, everything is in its place. What struck me most was the cleanliness. It is also fair to say that those I found there were respectful and friendly. The environment is serene and calm. Thank you Palmy for this good stay

    My stay at Palmy's homestay was simply delightful! Right from the start, her warmth and thoughtfulness made me feel incredibly welcome. The place was spotless and incredibly well-organized.

    What really impressed me was Palmy's genuine care for her guests. She didn't just ensure the place was clean and cozy; she went out of her way to make sure I felt at home. Palmy offered fantastic advice about the area, making my stay even more enjoyable.

    Palmy's hospitality was exceptional. Her kindness and meticulous hosting made my time there truly special. I didn't feel like just a guest; I felt like a valued friend.

    I highly recommend Palmy's homestay to anyone looking for a comfy, clean, and welcoming place to stay. Her caring nature and top-notch hosting skills create an unforgettable experience that'll leave you with wonderful memories.

    Palmy does her level best to maintain the cleanliness of the house and to make sure all her guests are happy with their stay.

    The room was immaculate and fully equipped with the basics. During my stay, Palmy ensured all my needs were taken care of. For eg: I asked for a bigger blanket and got one right away.

    Additionally, Palmy goes above and beyond to help out the guests staying with her and does things like making extra food for everyone.

    Pros: The house is clean and the house guests are all friendly creating a home-like environment.
    Cons: There are some house rules you have to follow (but honestly, this all-male house wouldn’t be so clean and if it wasn’t for those rules).

    I am very happy with my experience and I would highly recommend Palmy’s house.

    I spent almost 4 months here and Palmy was a great host who always made me feel at home and was very helpful! Palmy and her family are really nice and welcoming, the house is always clean and neat and everyone living in the house is very respectful. The home has a great location, really close to transportation, UTSC, Centennial College, and 3 blocks away from several supermarkets, restaurants, and convenience stores. I had a great experience here and definitely recommend it!

I would definitely like to return to this place

    The host is very kind and welcoming, making you feel at home. She gives you all the privacy you need. Sometimes she cooks food and gives some to you. 10/10 would stay again

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?

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?
