I've thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Sarah and her family. They're extremely warm and friendly people. They've gone out of their way to help me out on many occasions. The rooms are always in a very good condition. The house is extremely beautiful. I thank them for their warm hospitality.
Sarah e sua família me recebeu como mais um integrante da família.
Eles são muitos atenciosos e prestativos.
A casa é muito bonita e localizada em uma região muito boa.
Eu indico com certeza!
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 mother enjoyed her stay, it's a nice, quite and friendly community. You get what you pay for!
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.
Sarah is a very nice person. she holds really a helping mind. very friendly and outgoing person. I personally recommend this home stay for my friends.
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!
