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 if you wish. I can tell you what I know about Toronto.

The Neighborhood

This area is painted with women with the most beautiful veils and colours of the Somalian culture. 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, green metallic stairway between 2 red brick walls. A bit funky with many samosas choices. The area used to be very high end in 1950 and is just starting the condo developments.

You can travel easily north, south and west and to Yonge st and downtown. Benefit with an economical stay with easy traveling with highways and a parking behind home. Plus we have the Weston train and go train minutes from here!
The humber river is a long trail that you can enjoy walking and biking too!

Other Things to Note

You need to: 1-confirm that you read and accept the details in the profile and house rules. 2-express clearly your accommodation needs and concerns before you book . 3- clarify at least your lifestyle needs for COOKING AND YOUR WORKING/STUDYING SCHEDULE. This is priced a little lower then the rest here & according to my specific features on my profile and your low maintenance status.
3- I share this room a few times a week for reflexology (3-4 times a week) usually day & when you are not there hopefully ). NB This is why this is for a working and stuying person and why the room is discounted.
**Parking and breakfast is additional.

House Rules

I try my best to help you and make your stay great! Please tell me what you need before you arrive and along the way. I would prefer guests that work/study because this is a shared room. You may also just need a home to come to crash thus this is perfect. Although there is a lot of freedom, I am not seeking a very passionate cook (who cooks 3 /day or who cooks curry or very smelly foods frequently ). Do not get me wrong, you can eat all the salads or sandwiches but please no cooking 3 times a day (since i don't do it myself.) Cooking once a day is ok. I like my space to smell good during the day time.
This is a shared room that I will need 3-4 times a week usually you will not be inconvenienced if work day time. However I am upfront that I need to be able to work in my home but I am quiet and take your hours in consideration to bother you the least possible.
Please be opened to my advice since when you do not adhere, I need to do more work and you may not want me to charge you for maid service.
Some rules
This is a collaborative space where things need to work out harmoniously & economically. If there is something off, I will need to tell you. I cannot possibly predict all the things that can happen however the house is clean when you get here and I expect you to clean after yourself when you cook take a bath or use washroom.
Thus please put everything back to how you found it. This is a shared home not a hotel nor a rooming house. But this particular room is shared too so I will have to keep it clean. I will mop it often and it will stay clean.
For example:
1- Please take off your shoes in my home
2-Please close the lights; 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.
4-Respect and keep my property on my premises
6-Please put your dirty clothes in bags and in my hamper not hanging on my furniture or my floor/carpet etc. Plse BE HYGIENIC.
7-If anything is dirty please put in a bag and do not leave on my furniture or floor. Or put your stuff in garbage. I am trying to avoid bugs.
9- Leave shoes in the shoe area.
10- You have a space in fridge but please do not buy grocery for 7 days all at once.

Have a good and safe trip!
The rest will follow in the manual. I will print this page when you arrive at my home. For some reason people forget the rules and I would rather expect self-governance.

N.B when you arrive
I will need a copy of your id or passport or attachments if you are an immigrant.
