My stay with Curt and Sharen was a fantastic experience. I stayed for 5 weeks and this was my first bnb stay on my own. Curt and Sharen were very accommodating and they went above and beyond to ensure that my I had everything I needed for my short time in Mississauga. Staying with Curt and Sharen was like staying with old family friends. They were kind, loving and always offering a helping hand where ever needed (I was without a vehicle so they were always generously offering to drive me to work when it was cold or raining outside). If you're looking to stay within a family atmosphere, this is the place to choose! If you're wanting a more private, separate living area, this may not be the place for you (you do get your own kitchen and bathroom however, all living quarters are shared and your main bedroom is in the main upstairs living area). If you're a fun person looking for an experience and open to making new friends then this is the place for you. I will definitely be visiting them the next time I am in Toronto but this time as old friends :)

I stayed 2 months with this family and they considered me like a part of the family. This Is the perfect family .. Sharen and Curt drove me to visit some place like Niagara falls and Many other place... They are Nice, and funny, and very helpful! Jon and Nathalie are very Nice too, and we had such good moments . Sharen is like a mom and Curt is like a clown, he's often joking and he's very talkative ;) he spoke with everyone ans he's always here if you need help or if you just need to talk ! This family has a big heart and i recommend them for a wonderful stayhome. I miss them ! This Is like my "canadian family " and i wish them the very best with what Life has to offer !

This was my very first airbnb experience, and what an experience it was. Once I saw this listing, I knew it was going to be perfect. And it was. As soon as I stepped into the house, I felt an air of welcome and warmth. I was greeted with smiles from the entire family, and instantly felt at home. Every day, it was a pleasure speaking with both Curt and Sharen, as well as with their daughter, and their son whenever he made it home for the weekends. Their dog is also wonderful to be around, being calm, yet comforting whenever the mood strikes. I have a kitten, and there were days when I felt he loved them more than me (lol). Anytime I needed something, whether it be a ride or even just someone to talk to, they were right there. Always willing to do what they could to make sure I was alright. The Skenes are truly a family that will welcome you into their home, and make you feel like one of the family. I loved every minute of my experience with them. If I had to do it all again, I would do the same thing in a heartbeat.

Booking my stay in Curt and Sharen's home was one of the best decisions I have ever made. What began as me simply needing a room to crash in for a while, turned into so much more. The house was great, it was big, ideally located, super entertaining (the basement is a guy's dream) and always bustling with energy! Curt, Sharen, their kids Natalie and Jonathan and their Timbit eating dog Max took me in as a part of their family almost instantly. We shared many dinners, trips to the ice cream shop, a birthday reunion of past house guests, and countless heart to heart conversations. Curt, your sound advice and quick whit made ever conversation we had both informative and hilariously entertaining. I will miss our casual talks. Sharen you are an amazing cook and one of the most kind hearted people I have ever met. Natalie you're such a special kid.. If I ever have a daughter someday, I could only wish she were half the woman you are. John, it's unfortunate that we did not get to hang out much, as you were in residence. You could have taught me how to play the drums and I could have keep your folks up all night ;) Max, bow-wow-wow... Bow-wow... (Just said I'll miss trying to get you back into the house.. You stubborn dog you). To the Skene's you are a perfect family, humble and kind, and your love for each other and every person that walks through your from doors is evident. This lengthy wall of wonderful comments from happy guests like me, do not give justice to your family's superb hospitality. As an Airbnb host myself, I have gained so much from this experience. And as a human being I have grown exponentially over the last month! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

For a newcomer to Canada, the mind is full of several unanswered questions…. Will I be lucky in my job search? How long will it take to land work? There are also the immediate needs to be addressed and to top that list is where do I stay? At the end of the day, one always longs for a peaceful and comfortable place to unwind. This matter becomes a little more daunting especially when one has a small network. I came across the Skene’s rental opportunity while searching for short-term rentals and it is one of the best things that happened to me in this beautiful country. One the first day I walked in, Curt said “you are family now”. That was echoed in Sharen’s words and actions as well. Between the two of them, whether it was offering to take me across to the supermarket to help with groceries, drive me over to meet someone or for an interview, they were always there. Curt was also an inspiration for me in my job search. They often invited me to join them for a home cooked meal and even took me along for a family get-together. The house has a dedicated play area in case you are feeling bored. Curt often joked and said I probably took up the place to play pool. It’s a different thing that couple of months later, I was beating him at his own game (ha, ha, wink!). I also had a great companion in Max, their dog. It’s wonderful that they still keep in touch with the folks who shared their property; I got to meet the ones in Toronto over Christmas for a get-together. It was so much fun that we carried on the party at their place with karaoke into the wee hours of the morning. I have rented in the past and if I had to recommend a ‘home’ in Canada, I would recommend the Skene’s.

I just had an awesome time staying with the Skenes. I never had the feeling that I am their customer - I felt more like that I am in a way part of their family. They were very anxious to make my stay as pleasant as possible. I cannot say a single bad word about my stay, wether it was going to the gym with their son, having lunch with the family or watching a series with them. I just can recommend everybody to stay with the Skenes, if they visit Mississauga or the GTA. Thanks for a good time.

My experience with the Skenes was shorter than anticipated as my plans changed. However, they proved to be much more than merely a place to stay. Their warm, inviting attitudes and cosy accommodations were much appreciated. There were so many little gestures which helped me feel comfortable and welcomed: freshly baked goodies for breakfast, giving my husband a ride to the airport, as well as many lovely conversations. Their house is spacious and the Skenes make the extra effort to ensure your needs are met. Please do not hesitate to book an accommodation here, you truly won't be disappointed. Sincerely, Pamela Judd

Easy-going family who are friendly, funny, helpful and considerate. Both parents are business professionals who work from home. We have two older kids in post-secondary. We have a medium-sized dog who is old and sleeps a lot.

We live in a quiet neighbourhood with easy access to a great transit line that will take you around Mississauga or to downtown Toronto.

We've had the pleasure of hosting people from all over the world and have made a number of friends along the way.

Our goal is to be great hosts. We enjoy chatting with guests, sharing life stories and if you're new to the area offer ideas on how to get around the city.
