Me and my partner live in our own house in the east end of Toronto and we love hosting people from all over the world.

Our home is located in a quiet neighbourhood, 10-12 min walk (or 2 bus stops) to Woodbine subway station, less then 30 min to downtown by public transit, and steps away from a big ravine park.
We are 30 min away from ILAC and Access, 38min from LSI, and 40 min from Kaplan language schools.
We host 4 people at our house at all times - mostly international students and young professionals. Our guests have access to a full guest kitchen (with dishes, pots, pans, coffee makers and everything you need for cooking), living/dining area and a shower. Everyone gets their own space in the fridge, a kitchen cabinet and a space in the bathroom to store their stuff. A professional cleaner comes once a week to clean common areas.

I'm graphic designer and illustrator, Jordan is an IT guy, both working from home (but you won't see us much unless you need us).
We love travelling, photography, people and authentic conversations. Apart and together we've travelled China, Japan, Thailand, Russia, Ukraine, Germany, France, Belgium, UK, Holland, Spain, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Canada, US, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Argentina.
Originally from Russia, I moved to Canada as an international student 12 years ago, now happy to host a new generation of foreign students myself!
Jordan hosted over 60 couch-surfers in his previous apartment!

    I had a wonderful time staying with Kat and Jordan. They were easy going and very accommodating. I stayed for a month and made some really great friends there. The house is beautiful and very clean. I would highly recommend!

    Both Kat and Jordan are kind, accommodating and attentive. The house is nicely tucked in a quiet neighborhood. My room is great, modern and true to the ad. Highly recommended!
