Interaction with Guests
I am very clean and take care of the place. I'm also not at home very often on weekdays as I manage a tech startup a few blocks north but also love to show new comers around the hidden gems of Toronto.
The house is in a prime location, steps away from Toronto's newest and best dining on King Street (2 minute walk south), and tons of cool bars and indie music venues (2 minute walk north), and a short walk to the entertainment district, Kensington Market, or Chinatown (all 5-10 minute walks). You are also very close to Trinity Bellwoods Park, Art Gallery of Ontario, Roy Thompson Hall, CN tower, Rogers Centre or Air Canada Centre, Fashion District, Theatre District & City Centre, all within 10 minutes by public transit or on foot.
You will be right next to the Queen Streetcar as well as the Spadina streetcar so it's easy to get around to anywhere you might want to go!
Other Things to Note
Coffee, Tea, and basic breakfast is available to you through the length of your stay and you're free to use the kitchen if you need.
Having moved almost every year for the past 7 years all around Toronto, this is by far my favourite place and don't see myself moving anytime soon. You will love your stay here!
My main house rule is no shoes inside the house, especially heading up to the rooftop. Other than that, please treat this home as if it is your own. Keep things tidy and clean so we can both have an enjoyable time.
Bijan was an awesome host! It was really easy to communicate with him and he was very accommodating to our schedule. His place is located in area where there is so much to do and easy to get around. He made some great recommendations for things to see and places to eat. Would definitely stay here again!
I had a great stay at Bijan's place and will surely keep the address for any return trips to Toronto. Bijan was traveling, but his brother and mom did an awesome job pitch hitting as hosts. They made me feel totally at home and also shared some nice tips about places to go. The location is mint, because you're right around the corner from the lively Queen Street area, which is a visual feast of interesting architecture, restaurants, bars, shops and cafés. You can walk or take public transport to get pretty much anywhere. The roof deck was hands down my favorite feature of the apartment and you get a nice view of the Toronto skyline. I'd definitely recommend staying. Many thanks to the Vaez family for the hospitality!
Bijan is the PERFECT host! He was very flexible, accommodating, welcoming, informative, and inclusive--he even invited us to join him and his friends to celebrate Persian New Year while we were visiting and treated us to a traditional celebratory meal! His apartment is designed in great taste and is in an ideal location. Cannot recommend his place more!
Perfect location. Bijan is a very welcoming host. He responded very quickly to our last minute request. The apartment was clean, the room comfortable. We would definitely stay at Bijan again!

About the Host, Bijan
After moving every year for nearly 7 years, I've finally found a place to call home and I hope to share my enjoyment of it and my area in Toronto with you! I really enjoy playing host and making sure any traveller really gets to see the best of Toronto and having reviewed almost 300 businesses in Toronto ((website hidden)_details?userid=JVbqMyicxGWlEVPpyo6gpQ) I feel like I can guide most towards what they're looking to get out of their trip :)
I'm a Tech Startup Founder and have lived in Toronto for about 18 years. I'm a huge soccer fan and a massive coffee addict (luckily I live near 5 or 6 of Toronto's best coffee shops!).
