Juanita and her home were both lovely and welcoming. Juanita wanted to hear about us and why we came to Toronto, and it was obvious she wanted us to be comfortable, not just get the check and ignore her guests. We loved her expert tips - because of her, we ate at two of our new favorite stops! Juanita was the perfect mix of hands-off and -on. She let us explore on our own, but always wanted a recap at the end of the day. Our stay with Juanita will be a treasured memory!
Host made us feel very welcome and apart from some furniture re-arrangements the accommodation was as described. We were very pleased with where it was situated and suited our needs perfectly. We were able to come and go as we pleased and her information on the area was informative and helpful.
I had a wonderful time with Juanita, the apartment is fantastic and as a host, she is amazing.
Thanks for making me feel so welcome!
Juanita was very nice. we felt like we were at home. she gave us a lot of information about the city. Her place was very beautiful and it has very good neighborhood. It was very great to meet her.
Juanita was very kind to us when we arrived. She welcomed us and made us to feel as we where at home. We talked a lot with her and she gave us a lot of information about the neighbourhood and the city.
The flat is just like the pictures and the neighbourhood is very nice, with a lot of lovely restaurants and bars. We were downtown and the flat is very close to Toronto's main attractions.
We are very pleased to meet Juanita and thank her a lot for her hospitality.
I could not have asked for a better time for my first Airbnb experience. Juanita was a wonderful host, making me feel very welcome and encouraging me to see what Toronto has to offer. She was also very thorough in showing me the different features of the apartment and letting me know her schedule to coordinate with mine. She keeps the apartment very clean and tidy, yet cozy. I immediately felt like I was at home.
The location of the apartment is great. Lots of cool things within walking distance. There's even a 24hr grocery right downstairs. If you can get this place, do it!
A fantastic experience. My first AirBnB stay and visit to Toronto. Location was great, apartment was comfortable and pleasant and most of all Juanita is a wonderful host. Warm and generous and caring. Juanita freely shares her knowledge of Toronto and of life and people and we had lovely conversations. Thank you!!
