    I have been living here for almost an year now and I can tell that this Homestay is perfect for students.(As for myself, just completed my first year of college and had no complaints).
    The place is well located, it has a walkable distance to UofT, Centennial College and several bus stops.
    The family is nice, friendly and always have a helping hand when you need one.(I’m positive that they will like you and you will like them too).
    I hope this review helps whoever is coming to this Homestay.

    Sarah and Sathi are two wonderful people and their house is BEAUTIFUL!
    They treated us like members of their family, gave us contention in a new country with a new lenguage. They were VEEERY patients with our poor English, and also, Sarah helped us to improve the lenguage.
    We feel that they are one of our best memories in Canada.
    We recomend 100% the lovely Sarah´s Home!!!!!!!!

    my first experience as homestay, I made a family, Sarah has a beautiful big house! very quiet and peaceful ambience, I made a best friend called Kinsley, The kitchen is very beautiful and well-equipped, the house has a big garden. Sarah took me for grocery shopping twice, even though the place is very close to a few restaurants and convenience stores. It has been a great experience to be part of this amazing and beautiful family! I would surely recommend this homestay to anyone in Toronto.

    I had great time staying with sarah and her family. They helped me to find school, job and everything i was looking forward. I also had chance to join heartwarming Easter party with the family and other students. The people are really helpful and cultured so if you have any problem they would help you to solve. You won't go wrong with this stay.

    Sarah`s family were great. I`ve enjoyed every moment in her place and wish to have more time to stay with them. She helped me to settle a lot, showing me how to buy winter clothes, get a bus and many other important things needed to every newcomer to Canada. I recommend her place to everyone. (specially Brazilians) .

    Sarah thank you so much for receiving me! You were a god`s blessing to me!

    I would like to thank you all for all the help you gave to me while I was in Canada, everything was perfect! I felt it like home. When someone ask me if whether I know anyone in Canada I will be happy to say that I gave a second family there.
    I had the best Christmas in my life. I just have to say goodbye with a strong hug and wish you all be blessed. See you soon!!

    Vale a pena, indico esse homestay!

    A wonderful and warm family!
    The basement is spacious and comfortable.
    It is very close to University of Toronto and 25 minutes of bus from Kennedy Subway Station.
    It's worth it, I point out this homestay!

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?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
