About the Area

My bohemian 2 bedroom apartment is located on the 4th floor of a century old walk up in the west end of downtown Parkdale in the hamlet of Little Tibet on the edge of Roncesvalles Village. Urban with a hint of small town vibe. The apartment itself has waterfront/beach access and trails within a 5 minute walk. Public transit in various directions is at my door. 20-30 minute transit ride to the city centre core with bike rentals nearby. Limited street parking which I can assist maneuvering if you have a car. Loads of shops, veggie/fruit markets, trendy cafes, galleries and a vast array of restaurants ie. Tibetan (best momsos), Japanese, pizza, east & West Indian, Lebanese, Thai, Mexican and at my doorstep is an amazing, popular breakfast spot.

    The room provided us with comfort and privacy; the house had absolutely everything needed to cook. However, what I liked the most was Roxanne's hospitality. Although I don't speak English, she made me feel so comfortable that I started speaking little by little. Contrary to what I expected, communication wasn't a problem but an opportunity to get to know each other even more. I felt very good whenever I could talk to her and also when I spent time with her two cats. I totally recommend staying with her. Additionally, the location was excellent for us.

    Roxanne is more than a family. She is so kind, caring and she knows the city pretty well. I love every single moment of my stay at Roxanne's apartment. I love her Art works. I felt like living in a home away from home. You will love her and her two beautiful friendly cats. I definitely recommend her place. Especially if you ae visiting as a tourist. She knows almost all the interesting and exciting places in Toronto. I'm definitely visiting again.
    Oh and If you love going to the beach too, you got it, there is one close by and it's in a safe neighborhood too. You will get cool beautiful views of the city and the beach from her apartment.
    Thanks a million times, Roxanne. I miss staying with you already. You made my visit in Canada a memorable one.

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.
