I really loved staying at Leslie's house. She is a great host, super kind and helpful, and hers paintings and stories are amazing. Rudy is the most friendly dog I have ever met. I recommend for everyone who wants a quiet and tidy place to stay, who love dogs, art or having a good conversation.
It was very enjoyable and we could feel at home to stay with Leslie. I realize this especially when we move to other city and experience other homestay.
There were sometimes concerns about the wiggling desk and the cold water from the shower, but that wasn't a problem now that once we leave and feel how lucky we were with Leslie.
I hope to see you again and your dog. My kids miss you.
The host was lovely!
For a long term stay, I had the benefits of a welcoming, generous and helpful host, and privacy and surroundings that made it feel like a home. Thoroughly recommended!
Leslie is a wonderful host, very accommodating, friendly and gentle. The room is simple, with a very comfortable bed and a great treed view of the back yard. I had a welcome companion in Rudy, Leslie's dog. And one of the quietest most relaxing sleeps by staying there, in ages ( for this City Slicker). I will be back soon and stay longer!
Leslie was a fantastic host. She was very welcoming and inclusive, yet respectful of space. She is very easy going and willing to answer questions about the neighborhood, art, life in Canada, etc.
Her dog Rudy is gentle and well behaved. It was a pleasure to have him around. :) I recommend Leslie as a host and would definitely stay with her again.
Leslie was very polite and hospitable. Her dog Rudy super friendly. The room was just what I needed at a fair price.
