Lori is a very nice host, warm, welcoming, interesting and interested conversationalist. Respectful and never intrusive. I had a very good time together with her and the other 2 guests. Lori's home is warm, comfortable and nice decorated. Every interesting site in Toronto is nearby and easily reachable on foot. Recommended!
Lori is a kind hearted person and the location is nice.
Loris place is beautiful and the location is the best! Lori is a wonderful person and I’ll miss staying at her house and my nice comfy room.
I had a very nice experience at Lori's house. Lori is a very nice lady and is always available to help you. The house is large, clean, has plenty of space and is very close to downtown Toronto. I strongly recommend!
I had an amazing stay at Lori's !
My room was large and practical, nice, and the bed was comfy.
Lori is an amazing host, she's smiling, and open-minded. She also helped me and gave me advise for my future projects, and I thank her a lot for this !
Thank you very much for everything Lori, and I will contact you for sure if I have the opportunity to be back in TO in 2018 !!
I had a great time at Lori's house. First, the location is quiet central and I walked every day to the city center. Supermarkets are around for any shopping. The house is really cute with a good sense of decoration. I had a big bedroom with a fridge, a desk and space to hang my clothes. I could eat and cook in the kitchen. Lori is very warm host and I definitely recommend anyone to stay there.
Cozy place and close to everything. Thanks Lori for everything. Best regards
Stayed one month in this place.
Lori is kind, helpful and extremely organized. The house is well placed, you can reach everything downtown Toronto in about 15 minutes walking.
I was in the biggest room and it was very confortable, clean and with all necessary. Wonderful stay, I will recommend to anyone visiting Toronto.
