Large family home close to attractions and amenities

I live in the wonderful Roncesvalles neighbourhood in Toronto -- close to High Park (the largest park in the city), Lake Ontario, streetcar lines and a subway station. The downtown core is very accessible from our home, but the Roncesvalles strip (2 minutes away) also boasts wonderful cafes, restaurants and bars. There are fantastic (and reasonable) green grocers and supermarkets nearby too. My husband and I have two sweet and lively daughters, 3 and 6. My mother lives on the lower level of our 100 year old 3-storey house. We have a large backyard and a 2-story deck for outdoor relaxation. Spacious, bright room with desk and internet.

    They were all very kind and lovely and gave me a lot of unforgettable memories!
    My study abroad became a invaluable experience thanks to them.
    I am feeling kind of homesick to them now!

    I will visit you again!!;))

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) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

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.
