About the Homestay
***Please read our house rules before sending your request***
Our beautiful home is located in Cabbagetown, downtown Toronto. The home is a perfect combination of luxury and comfort. As you enter you will see a warm 10 foot ceiling space with industrial and lavish finishes. The air quality and temperature of the house is perfect. You will feel welcome and right at home.
We want our guests to feel safe and comfortable. My partner and I live in our house and are available to answer any questions you may have. If you are exploring the city and would like activity or restaurant suggestions, we are here to help. If you would rather have a quiet stay, we are discreet and respectful.
We offer a spacious bedroom with clean lines and off-white finishes that create a simple zen. The sparking clean bathroom is finished with large wall mirror.
Our house is located by the city core. The TTC streetcar stop is down the street, which is a few stops away from Yonge-Dundas Square and the subway line 1.

Tom and Olivier helped us so much already before we even arrived at their beautiful home. With tips for camping, renting a car and exploring the city we got many helpful messages from them beforehand. This was our first time using Homestay and if it’s always like our stay at their place in Toronto we are a fan. The house and room itself are beautiful, very modern and very clean. Clean towels were even provided daily. It almost feels as if you’re in a high star hotel. We were very busy exploring the city, but if you are looking for a comfortable room and bathroom to relax we would also recommend. We really liked our stay here!
Mega netter und Kulanter Gastgeber, konnten sogar ganz früh einchecken obwohl es eigentlich nicht so vorgesehen ist. Gepäck konnten wir sogar nach der eigentlichen Buchungzeit dabehalten lassen da wir erst spät abends abgefahren sind.
A beautiful, well-appointed room with a private bathroom, in a large, stylish Cabbagetown house. Highly recommended.
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
