About the Homestay
I own and live in a three bedroom townhouse in Scarborough, Ontario, with two full bathrooms upstairs and one half downstairs. My basement is small but finished with a bedroom, own washroom, living space and kitchenette. I also have a small back yard and a tiny quiet and loving little Shitzu. I am an Early Childhood Educator and have three grown children, one of whom is with me sometimes
I'm looking to host ‘International homestay only!’ to exchange some international experience while hosting.
Please note that all guests must undergo isolation, which means under no condition would they be allowed to come upstairs during the isolation period.

If you want to feel like home even being far away from it you won't regret staying with Livvy and little Nina!! Had an amazing experience , she was very helpful, easy-going and kind. Thank you so much Livvy, I hope we keep in touch!
I really enjoyed my stay at Livvy's. She is extremely helpful. She guided me and showed me around the neighbourhood. The place is walking distance from grocery store, bank, Tim horton's, dollorama etc. Her dog Nina is absolutely adorable.
She’s a good host.
