Our family has a lovely home and lots of experience dealing with and helping international students who decide to come to Canada to improve their English or further their education.
Our home is accessible to many amenities that Toronto has to offer you such as enjoying our beautiful parks, malls, restaurants, bicycle trails, tennis courts, swimming pools, churches, gyms, libraries, schools and many more.
Our neighbourhood is very safe with public transportation only a 3 minute walk away. Our major intersection is Pharmacy and Lawrence. Pharmacy Avenue is a 3 minute walk. And Lawrence is a 5 minute walk. Our home is 1 block North of Lawrence Avenue East. The closest subway stations are Victoria Park station and Warden station. You will be able to familiarize yourself with our TTC service very easily. Our home is 30 minutes away from the airport and only 30 minutes away from downtown Toronto.
We are an outgoing, kind, and friendly family welcoming students into our home and treating them as members of our own family.
We are a family of 5, my husband Dimitri and myself, Helen, have 3 children. Son aged 32 who has completed his studies in International Business; Son aged 30 completed his Masters at Queens University in Occupational Therapy. They both live on their own. Son, aged 22, currently living at home and has completed his 4th year at York University, studying History and aspires to become a History Teacher and Social Worker. My loving parents live 2 houses away and my mother frequently comes by for visits. We would love to also introduce you to our best friend “Achilles” our 15 year old Siberian Husky. A total teddy bear and very loving.
Your accommodations will provide you with security and comfort….BUT ABOVE ALL….. the feeling of belonging to a family. You will become part of the family like a real homestay should be.
We speak English and Greek fluently. We are friendly active people who love to travel, meet new people and learn about other cultures. We are both working professionals and are really looking forward to sharing our culture with you.
