About the Homestay
Our home is located in the heart of the city in a safe, historic neighbourhood called "Cabbagetown". We are one block from a Bus Stop and a 5 minute walk to the Subway Station. We have a working farm in our neighbourhood located just 3 blocks away. It's free to walk through the barns filled with chickens, sheep, cows, horses, and goats! The farmhouse sells freshly baked cookies and there are some lovely paths to stroll through. It's a charming site in the heart of the city.
The bedroom we offer also includes a private bathroom. The bedroom looks out onto the garden and the bathroom is marble-lined with a skylight. The room includes a fridge, microwave and Keurig coffeemaker. I have two sons, ages 15 and 17 who enjoy playing basketball, sailing and skiing. We are a quiet home as the boys use their "buds" if they listen to music or watch Netflix. :-) I have been hosting students from around the world since 2010.

I enjoyed the stay at Christine’s place a lot. It’s a cute, nicely decorated house in a quite neighbourhood not far from downtown (10 mins bus drive or 25 mins walk to Yorge Street). Christine and her son are very welcoming and helpful and Christine offers a great breakfast. The bed has a thin mattress but the bedroom is nicely decorated and equipped with everything you need (drawer, cupboard, desk, fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee machine). You can feel at home :-)
Christines place is just great. The perfect place to stay for vacation, business trip or if you just like to spend some time in this awesome City. I felt welcome the minute I walked in. Her beautiful townhouse is close to bus stops, Tim Hortons and a 10 minutes walk to subway line 2 . Christine is the perfect host, funny, open minded, kind, helpful and her teenage kids are great. The neighborhood is quiet , nice, clean and save, but still close to Shops and Cafés . I would definitely stay again !
