- Use of Kitchen
Cigarette smoking (outside) allowed. No drugs onsite. This is an LGBTQ friendly space with animals on premises. Intolerant or aggressive activist attitudes of all kinds are not the best fit here, as this is an apolitical space welcome to people of diverse perspectives, cultural and social backgrounds, and affiliations. Socializing is not required and personal space respected, but it is preferred that guests be able to be polite and friendly with others while in the space. Excessive noise and large gatherings in the space are to be avoided. Payment will be requested, in full, by e-transfer (or Paypal, or Wise etc.) BEFORE arrival, and guests will have access to the space, with individual keys being given to guests at arrival and orientation to the space. If there are any concerns during the stay that cause us to end our agreement early, the remaining days will be refunded (but only half of remaining days if you ask to end early) to you unless there have been any damages (full payment will be required in those instances). The expectation is that guests tidy the space before they exit the homestay, and that on arrival at the apartment they allow for a check of luggage and clothing to avoid bringing in bugs, bed bugs etc. Good personal hygiene is also encouraged (washing hands after bathroom/washroom, regular showering/bathing) as is keeping both the common areas (kitchen, bathroom, living room) and bedroom clean. House safety and respecting of others personal space and items is an absolute expectation. Entering others space without permission or taking of items without permission will result in being asked to leave, or in more serious instances, authorities contacted. The house is electronically monitored and neighbourhood watch is in effect.

David sets up a nice and cozy home for guests to stay. I enjoyed staying my time here and chatted with him about the local cultures. There are 2 lovely dogs to stay with guests. What a nice experience to have my first stay here
David was incredible as a host, but more than host he was a friend for me! I love him and his pets too. David has a clean house, he is always in touch for everything you need, he is conversational and at the same time he respects your privacy. It was a home for me, I'm grateful with him, I'm going to miss him so much. I hope return one day. I highly recommend him as a host
