I know the COVID-19 pandemic has been a crazy situation. Due to this I had to leave Toronto way earlier than expected. I stayed with Rob and Mira only for 20 nights (instead of 108 nights booked) but I had to pay for 65 nights before I could go. I did not expect to get a full refund and only pay my 20 nights, however they took too much of my money and fed me with the hope to stay with them for free whenever I will be in Toronto. I already became mistrustful when Mira told me that. I wanted them to make out a receipt for my payments but they completely ignored me and never answered. I had the chance to get financial help from my university, a partial refund for the 1040€ (~1600 CAD) they demanded for the time after my departure. However, I needed the receipt (that they never made out) in order to receive the financial help from my university. Rob and Mira left me alone with the outrageous costs they charged me. I hope they use my money to get some works done at their house as it is not in best shape. When I arrived late at Rob & Mira's house, my room was not prepared, there were still used linen on my bed and they did not clean the room which wasn't booked for a few months before my arrival. The offered 'light breakfast' is a joke, they provide dry oatmeal, that's all. Furthermore, they already mention it on this profile but keep in mind that you are not allowed to use the stove. "Cooking" needs to be done with a microwave and a dirty mini-minioven.
So why do I even rate them with one heart? Because they played caring hosts during the time I stayed at their house. Played. I booked their homestay because their profile suggests a couple that is interested in their students and eager to care for them. But in the end they only smell a lucrative business. I can not trust them anymore.
They took my money and didn't pay it back when I was forced to leave earlier than expected due to the corona situation. I paid the rent two months in advance, when I found out I had to go home I talked to Mira about the rent and she ensured me that I would be getting some of the rent back. I then left for home and didn't hear from them. I contacted Mira and she said that she had to talk to think about the whole money situation, talk to her husband and then return to me. Few weeks later I contacted her again asking what was going on and she said and I quote: "no I didn't talk to him bc frankly there's nothing to discuss. or a decision to be made". She started claiming that the deposit was higher than what we agreed upon because that way she had the right to keep the money since the deposit was non-refundable, and after a long conversation she still refused to pay the rent back and ended up blocking me on the only communication system we had, which was WhatsApp. I'd like to add that the rent I had paid in advance was more than the deposit. Till this day 2 months after I left their home, they still owe me close to $1000. I can't recommend anyone staying with Rob and Mira after this experience.
I really enjoyed the homestay experience at Rob and Mira's. They are a fun couple, always willing to help you out with anything. Mira loves cooking and so do I. I will always remember my first weekend at their place having homemade pancakes and waffles, yummy!!. I only spent 10 nights with them and I wish I could have stayed longer! Do not hesitate to choose them, you won't regret that! We still keep in touch and I'm waiting for them to come to Barcelona :)
The fundamental and most important is that Mira and Rob are a trustworthy and kind family. They are a lovely couple and they really know how to welcome their guests.
My experience in their home was amazing, we shared great moments together and we had really good conversations.
They have been hosting guests from every part of the world for 10 years with success, so they are really experienced and they know how to manage in order to keep a harmounious house, establishing clear rules and by having a respectful and warm relation with each one.
The house is great, always clean, with a beautiful deck and with nice rooms. The neighborhood is really good well located.
PS: I also have to mention that Mira is an amazing cooker!!! Thanks to her, I didn't miss the Brazilian food and I had the opportunity to try different dishes from other countries.
Thank you for everything, Rob & Mira!
I really loved staying at Rob&Mira's house! They are the loveliest host and so caring with warm hearts and they will do everything for you to feel like home! The house is also very nice and clean. It was really hard for me to leave them! I can totally recommend this accommodation (:
THE PLACE TO BE !!!
I recently spent two months living in Toronto and I choose to stay with Rob&Mira. I previously have had some experiences with other host families during my life. But after meeting this home I can only recommend staying with them! Rob & Mira are the nicest hosts you are ever going to have. They are used to spend time with people from all over the world and it was fantastic to share with them so many experiences. They are really open-minded and you can spend hours and hours speaking with them about anything you want, and you are going to listen to some amazing stories. You are invited to participate in meetings and plans with their friends, so you are never going to be bored and it becomes a great opportunity to start meeting nice people if you are alone in Toronto. However, if you prefer to be on your own or you need time to work or whatever, that's fine as well because the house is quiet and calm. I would recommend joining the family dinners. Have you ever tasted such wonderful meals? Mirellicious!!!
Rob & Mira are very friendly and will help you with anything you need. On my first day, they explained to me how the city works, where to take public transport (streetcar, bus, subway...), best places to eat and where to buy the things you need. I really had great recommendations from them, it's like having free touristic guides. Their home is clean and tidy. They have 3 rooms so you may share your experience with other guests. Personally, I was very lucky to meet people from France, SouthAfrica, Netherlands and I made great friends. The house is well situated and it has very good connections to the city center. My room was very clean and the bed comfortable with fresh linen. They have a superb and beautiful terrace where you can spend your time listening to music, having conversations or just looking at the city. The neighborhood is very quiet and secure.
To sum up: if you want to have a full Torontonian experience, stay in a nice place, meet fantastic people and enjoy your time, don't hesitate to stay at Rob&Mira's. Remember, THE PLACE TO BE!!!
Rob and Mirelli are the nicest of people. While staying with them I fell including and very welcome. Mirelli especially has a way with her guests, it was awesome you just sit down and have a chat over some snacks. Rob has all the dad jokes one needs. The downstairs room I had was spacious, clean and very welcoming. Overall it was a great experience and I recommend anyone wanting to book a homestay in Toronto should look no further, this one has it all.
I’ve had three amazing weeks with Mira and Rob! I can only recommend staying with them! I felt welcomed from the first second on. They’re very open for other cultures & people. With their home being located close to downtown, it makes the daily commute very convenient and fast. The room was clean and equipped with all necessities. To put it in a nutshell, you can find everything you’re looking for in a perfect homestay family in Mira & Rob! Thank you for the great time & I hope to see you again, Mira & Rob!

I did have a wonderful experience with Rob and Mira they are two people down to earth , peaceful and friendly. I was very comfortable , they were very helpful and with great hospitality. The house and my room were very clean.
Great neighborhood too to get to know the city from
I highly recommended this family without any hesitation.
During my internship in Canada I stayed with Rob and Mira for 3 months. This was my first ever experience abroad for such a long period of time. It was my first experience with a host family as well.
I have to say, my experience could not have been any better! Rob and Mira are kind and welcoming people who love to meet open-minded people (like themselves) who like to travel and share their culture.
This was my first stay ever in Toronto and whenever I needed advice on transportation, what to do, where to go etc. I could always count on Rob and Mira. When my brother stayed over and we explored the city, Rob even became our personal travel guide who advised us on how to make the most of our trip.
They really went out of their way to make their home a home for me as well. They showed great interest in the progress of my internship and the writing of my paper. From time to time, Mira would make my favourite dish or ask me what type of food I was missing from home. And God, that food was delicious! I have some great memories as well from the nights when they gathered everyone at home so we could have dinner toghether out on the deck. Combine Mira's food with Rob playing the guitar and cracking jokes, and you'll have a dinner which lasts for hours!
I would describe Mira and Rob as curious and open-minded people who like to learn new stuff everyday. This often resulted in long-lasting conversations/debates on all kinds of topics. On the other hand there were times where we would all be cracking jokes and having a good laugh. Since I was in school and had to write a thesis, I was pretty lucky to stay with them. Their home is quiet and they would not bother me when writing for school. Basically, you can have a great time toghether, but if you need some time to work on your stuff, that's fine as well. Overall, the atmosphere at home was really laidback and fun!
Their home is clean and well taken care of. My room was clean and my bed had fresh linnen when I arrived. The three roommates shared a bathroom which was clean as well. Also, there were clean linnen and towels whenever I needed them.
There have been times when we would (go out and) do stuff toghether as well. Watching a movie, go to a musical, go to the park etc.
Good to know is that very close to their home there is a bus station. This way you'll be downtown fast.
Basically, what I'm trying to say is, if you're open for it and you're staying with Rob and Mira, you wont just find a homestay, but a second home abroad.
To summarize it all: I arrived as a roommate but I left as a new friend!
