About the Homestay
My name is Erika and I am a Film & Television Make-up Artist. I have enjoyed hosting international students and have made some wonderful friendships along the way. I myself have done a lot of travelling along the years from all around Europe, South Africa, Caribbean Islands etc.. so I love to share travelling stories and learning new cultures. I live with my daughter Francisca who also shares a passion for travelling and enjoys getting to know new people.
My home is located right in the heart of the City which means there is a lot to see close by and I always welcome my guests to tag along during friends and family outings if they'd like.
We are a friendly family who understands the pressure of visiting a different country and not knowing anyone so we want you to feel comfortable and secured. We understand privacy is important and are very clean, neat people.
We only want you to enjoy your stay in Toronto!

About the Area
My apartment is located right in one of the best neighbourhoods downtown called Harbourfront. It is on the northern shore of Lake Ontario overviewing the beautiful water & Toronto Island. The neighbours are friendly and very polite, especially if you ask for directions.
The apartment is a 1 minute walk from the bus stop and subway stop. 15 minute walk to the Toronto CN Tower, Rogers Center, Air Canada Center, Ripley's Aquarium, Music Garden and Harbourfront Cultural Centre which hosts tons of festivals and activities for all demographics. Other than the main tourist attractions our location is very popular for it's vast options of bars, restaurants and has a huge variety of boat parties to enjoy!
