    My first homestay experience was delightful. The room was spacious, and the house boasted excellent facilities. I wholeheartedly recommend Binh and her homestay to anyone seeking a home away from home. I will certainly return!

    Room was spacious, clean & comfortable. Binh was courteous, went above & beyond in welcoming me when I set foot with 4 suitcases. Overall great affordable place for short term stays (mine was 23 nights)

    Even though I only stayed for 2 days, the room was cozy and clean. The host and other guests were very friendly and kind. The neighborhood is close to a mall and a subway station; you can reach Pioneer Village station within 5 minutes by bus.

    Me encantó quedarme en casa de Michelle. Tenía mi espacio, había silencio, y había supermercados y transporte público cerca del lugar.

    1. Clean and welcoming.
    2. Great communication
    3. Easy sign in process
    4. Close to 35 Jane and 960 Steeles

    This was a great stay for me. I had to be downtown for most of my stay and was concerned about how far it was. But it's a five minute walk to the bus and a five minute ride to Pioneer Village Station. Then 45 minutes to Union. Perfect. The room was clean, sheets were clean. And a nice spacious bathroom.

    Thank you for a stress free stay!

    Thank you so much Toni for the super sweet review. Please come back any time. We wish you all the best!

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) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

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.
