About the Homestay
Our home is very centrally located; it is 5 minutes from the Coxwell Subway so getting anywhere is very easy. Toronto can be hard to get around, but from here, it is very easy. I am within 5 minutes drive of both major highways too!
The house was recently beautifully renovated; it is spectacular, super clean, and very comfortable!
I currently have a beautiful bedroom, The Gardenview, which has a 3/4 sized bed and a pull-out couch with a mini fridge and a beautiful view of the backyard garden. I also sometimes offer the Reconciliation Room, which has a very comfortable double bed.
I own this house and live here. I can offer advice on places to see and where shops, theatres, and other amenities are.
I have a large collection of vintage DVDs and CDs as well as musical instruments including a grand piano, banjo, guitar, tongue drum, and many other wind instruments. I also have thousands of novels, books on history, art, music, and philosophy.
The house has a fully stocked kitchen and you are welcome to cook there and use the living room and dining area, as well as the outdoor patio (weather permitting). There is also a sitting area in the front of the house with a table and comfortable outdoor chairs. There is one parking spot for your use at the back of the property. It is entirely NON-SMOKING.

About the Area
Our house is located in a quiet neighborhood filled with actors and musicians. There are four grand pianos within a one block radius, and the community is very vibrant and fun. Many young families live here. It is very close to the Coxwell subway, and so it is a short distance on transit to the train station, the bus station, and the airport(s). It is also close to two major arteries (the Gardiner and the Don Valley Parkway. Tons of great restaurants of every imaginable kind of cuisine, a gym steps away, shopping everywhere (on the Danforth), a hospital a few blocks away. And it is 15 minutes drive from downtown

Alexander est un hôte charmant et prévenant .. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans sa jolie maison .Bien située et très cosy . Merci encore pour toutes vos attentions .
Alexander was very kind and helpful and makes you feel comfortable. His home is clean and close to amenities and transit
Alexander is such a great, kind and lovely person! I loved to talk to him and felt like home from the first second on. It was a pleasure to stay there, got to know him and his artist-life - would highly recommend this to y‘all for sure!
Un séjour très agréable : Alexander a été accueillant, à l’écoute et a su répondre à mes questions sur Toronto et ses alentours. la chambre est confortable et a été bien propre dès mon arrivée, les draps et serviettes de bain sont disponibles et à disposition.
En ce qui concerne la maison, elle est dans son ensemble très propre et rangée et l’est resté pendant toute la durée de mon séjour. La maison se situe à 8min à pied de la station de métro coxwell (ligne 2 - verte), de l’avenue Danforth très fréquenté et de plusieurs supermarchés.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
We had the best time ever. Alexander is our friend for always. We love him a lot. Best experience ever
Absolutely loved the space and the atmosphere. Alexander was always helpful and will be available whenever you need him. You’ll also get to hear his occasional symphony on piano. Will definitely recommend booking this space as it’s close to various stores, subway and downtown
The host cancelled the booking 61 days before the arrival date.
Alexander fue muy buen anfitrión, amable, atento a lo que se necesitaba, agradezco mucho la buena estadía, lo recomiendo totalmente, fue muy bueno estar en su casa.
Alexander is super friendly, chill and hospitable. His home is clean, relaxed and not far from subway station.
