A home away from home. I moved to Toronto in August of 2019 and i came to stay with Patricia and Ian from mid October. It was an amazing stay which motivated me to extend my stay by a month. Patricia takes care of you like a mother would and i thoroughly enjoyed the dinner conversations with Ian and Patricia on a range of topics. They are always up for helping people and give some critical tips on how to navigate your way around in Toronto! I wont be very far and would love to visit them regularly - especially when i can sniff the aroma of the cakes that Patricia bakes! :)
I spent two fantastic weeks with this wonderful couple. Although I am a reserved person, they helped me to feel comfortable and accepted me as a family member. I absolutely do not regret staying at home and advice strongly to future guests. Patricia and Ian thank you again.
I highly recommend this host. My room was clean, the neighborhood is quiet and I received a warm welcome.
We had an amazing time, days just flew by and both Ian and Patricia were welcoming and helped us get very comfortable in this new city. They always checked up on us if we are doing okay, are we getting along with the hustle bustle of city life.
If ever in future I have to choose a homestay in this area, I am surely choosing this place as it's nearby to public transport and easy to commute and especially because of Ian and Patricia's hospitality nothing less than a 5* star hotel.
I am definitely Coming back Soon to learn the yummy lemon pound cake that Patricia bakes...
Thank you so much guys, it was an amazing time and the times u went out of ur way to help us out and making our stay very comfortable.
Lots of luv

Hello, Patricia and Ian,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your hospitality during my stay in Toronto. You saved my life when I urgently needed accommodation and I have never regretted my decision. I loved living with you in my own room with its own bathroom, which was both and the entire apartment always very clean. It also had a bus stop very close and a supermarket right next door, which was very important to me. It was always very nice when I could have dinner with you or when we talked because you both have so much to tell and you both know so much about Toronto and were able to answer all my questions about weekend plans.
I thank you for everything you have done for me during the time I've been able to spend with you and I'm sure I'll remember that very nice and special time with you very often.
I wish you only the very best!
Excellent place to stay close to my spiritual retreat.
Thank you Patricia for opportunity to learns about Toronto and the culture.

Before I even got a chance to walk in the door, I already felt like I was being not only welcomed into a home, but to a new family!
Pat and Ian are some of the most loveliest people you will ever encounter.
I can't thank them both enough for opening up their home, lives, experiences and stories to me!
Thank you once again Pat and Ian for making my stay in Toronto unforgettable!
