Cigarette smoking (outside) allowed. No drugs onsite. This is an LGBTQ friendly space with an animal on premises. Intolerant attitudes of all kinds is not the best fit here, as this is an apolitical space welcome to people of diverse perspectives, cultural and social backgrounds, and affiliations. Excessive noise and large gatherings in the space are to be avoided. Payment will be requested, in full, by e-transfer upon arrival, and guests will have access to the space, but individual keys will not be given to guests unless discussed after arrival. If there are any concerns during the stay that cause us to end our agreement early, the remaining days will be refunded to you unless there have been any damages (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.
Smoking is not allowed.
David was a very nice, accommodating and caring host who always looked at how we were doing and if he could help us in any way! Thank you!
David is a great host.
is clean and comfy.
are very friendly and docile.
The area is near to everything and i enjoyed daily commute to famous places with the TTC stop within 2 minutes of walk.
Séjour d'une semaine passée à Toronto, rendu incroyable en partie grâce à David. Du logement à sa personnalité en passant par ses adorables animaux et ses amis, ce détour canadien a été incroyable !
De nombreux tips, de réels échanges sur la villes et les activités possibles... Merci David !
This is the first time I stayed in Toronto and it could not have been better. David really made me feel comfortable. Helped me a lot and the place is amazing. It is close to a few good food joints, grocery stores and it is easy to commute to downtown with TTC.
I stayed for 2 months at David's house. I felt welcomed by him and his two docile dogs (wonderful). The house is complete and super cozy. I definitely recommend this house to travelers who want to study, work or meet Toronto.
Excellent homestay option, the best host David, a kind, cheerful person and always helping those who need it most, his pets are polite and the space is nice, clean and enough for a couple, my husband and I, pregnant, enjoyed the stay, the accommodation has fulfilled everything that it sells and publishes (services, comfort, cleanliness, real photographs and descriptions).
At this homestay for 3 weeks was awesome. David is very kind and helpful. It also felt like home. In one word amezing
The stay was amazing and David was a kind host. The dogs are super friendly and loving! It was a wonderful stay, thanks for being so kind.
David is much much more than a great host, he always cares for his guests like they are family. He respects privacy and boundaries, yet he is always there to help and assist. Plus he has such a beautiful home, beautiful dogs, and the place has incredible vibes. He helped me settle in and find my own place, yet I actually didn't want to leave when it was time. At David's it felt like home.
Couldn’t ask for a better home stay, David has made me feel extremely comfortable, he’s an amazing host who is easy to get along with and I would definitely recommend.
