You can share common space- living room , kitchen (micro wave, slow/rice cooker, mixer and utensils etc) and washroom. You can use some space in the fridge. We can share cooking and or buy staple products together. I can also prepare meals for a nominal price if you wish. However please this is not for the passionate cook's have for cooking 3 times a day ( I don't even do that)
Interaction with Guests
I can interact as much as you want; will try my best to answer your questions. However i am not a big talker, I leave you alot of space and peace. I like to know about people lives and how others live their passions for sure, but it is up to you. I cultivated this space with peace since I a am holistic practitioner. We can interact with tea and a meal...
The building & home is old world and has gone through transformation of immigration but it is very peaceful,safe and colorful.
a bit like******* New York style with red door, metalic stairway between 2 red brick walls. A bit funky. You can get many samosas here too.
The area used to be very high end in 1950 but now is not as rich a neighbourhood-you can travel easily north, south and west and to Yonge st you. Benefit with an economical stay with buses at doorsteps .

Other Things to Note
You need to please: 1-confirm that you read and accept all the details in house rules in emails clearly. 2-express clearly your accommodation needs and concerns before you book /land. 3- know at least your lifestyle needs for COOKING AND YOUR SCHEDULE (because we are sharing this room.)
3- collaborate since I share this room a few times a week for reflexology( 3-4 times a week usually when you are not there hopefully )that is why this is for a working and studying person and room is discounted.4-if you work,study or travel and approximate schedule to determine how to best share.
Departure is 9.30am
Arrival 3pm or later
I try my best to help you and make your stay great! I would prefer though guests that work/study or are busy outside because this is a shared room or you can come to crash. Although there is a lot of freedom, I am not seeking a very passionate cook( who cooks 3 /day or who cooks curry and much sausages or very smelly foods). Do not get me wrong, you can eat all the salads or sandwiches you want but I try to no have a smelly home mond-friday up to 8.30 pm. Other tenants may have different ideas and I work here part time. We offer you what we agreed upon; can trust that this is a peaceful, clean and healing space. If you need anything let us know, we probably would be able to help.
**********If you do not clearly enunciate your needs do not expect me to know what you need and how well we can share this home.
Basically you need to take care of your space and people to live in harmony. If there is something off, I will need to tell you. This is a shared home not a hotel nor a rooming house.
1- Please take off your shoes in my home and clean after yourself with dishes, sink, room and bathtub at least. There is no maid service.
2-Please close the lights and lock door, close ac when you leave.
3-Please do not use ac all day but for only 1 hour a day max; you have a fan that you can use anytime. (there will be a 60.00 security deposit for the hydro re ac refundable when at departure if hydro bill was not too high due to ac) I appreciate.
4-Respect and keep my property on my premises
5-PLEASE NO: BED BUGS, BUGS PERIOD, ANIMALS , DRUGS, SMOKING OR GUESTS nor DAY or OVERNIGHT GUESTS
6-have a good and safe trip!
7-I will wash your bed linen at least 3 times a month
N.B when you arrive
I will need a copy of your id or passport/attachments if you are an immigrant.
Jovanna was very friendly and accommodating. I was happy to have booked the room while in Toronto.
I had a very pleasant stay here. Jovanna was a generous and gracious host. Her place was clean and conveniently close to a streetcar line that connects quickly with the subway line.
I am an holistic Licensed practitioner and a green product maker. I love to meet people also from other countries. I live in a 100 year old house which has a lot of love decorated in. I have a special space to share for whom needs a safe haven. I love good food, conversation and can handle more joie de vivre. I am now reading the art of non conforming. I would like to create a better world through small focused actions rippling over and would like to travel, explore, learn, empower, heal and art more.
