About this listing
Beautiful big bedroom available in my happy home.
A very convenient location - 4 minute walk to Ossington Subway on the Bloor line.
The room is spacious, newly furnished, clean and tidy.
Use of a shared kitchen, sun room and garden also!
If you are looking for a convenient location, and a quiet, comfortable place to relax during your stay in Toronto, you've come to the right place.
I am a conscientious host, and my house is always in great condition: clean, tidy, well-organized and comfortable.
Convenient street parking: My street is not busy and there are always parking spaces available nearby. Parking is free on the street during the day. Between midnight and 7am a permit from the City of Toronto is required, which costs $20 per week or $13 for 48 hours or $9 for 24 hours. A parking permit is easy to buy and print on-line. I would be happy to help with this.
Front door: The front door is operated with a 4-digit code, so you will have 24 hour access to the house without worrying about keys.
You will have your private room as well as use of a large, beautiful bathroom. Shower and bath both available. Soap, shampoo, fresh towels provided.
Laundry: There is a washer and dryer that you can use without charge.
Kitchen: You are welcome to make use of the kitchen refrigerator and make meals whenever you like. I have a gas stove, gas oven, microwave and toaster oven for you.
Sun room and back yard: At the back of the house enjoy relaxing in the bright sun room. Feel free to use the barbecue or spend time in the back yard.
Interaction with Guests
Apart from introducing myself and saying hi, I can be as involved or uninvolved as you like. If you'd like suggestions for area restaurants and things to see and do I would be happy to help. If you'd rather be left to your own devices that is just fine as well.
The neighborhood around my house has everything a visitor could wish. I am steps from Bloor Street and a short walk from the very popular College Street and Ossington areas. Dufferin Grove Park is close by.
My house is a five minute walk from the Delaware Avenue entrance of Ossington Subway station, which is on the Bloor line.
Other Things to Note
Check out: I usually have guests arriving on the same day as guests are leaving. On the final day of your stay you are welcome to use the house as your base. The living room, back yard, washrooms and kitchen are all available for you. Please aim to vacate the bedroom by noon so that I can get it cleaned and tidied for the next guests.
There are no particular house rules apart from no smoking in the house. My guests have all tended to be very easy to host: polite, friendly, easy-going.
Joshua is an amazing host! He went out of his way to make sure our stay was comfortable and all our needs were met. After just a couple nights, we didn't want to leave and felt like we were leaving a good friend. You will absolutely love your stay in his home.

My parents were staying at Joshua's place for 10 days, and they loved it! Everything was perfect, the room is very comfortable, the bed perfect. Joshua installed an HVAC system but the house has HVAC also so it was not hot, the patio is amazing.
They strongly recommand the place.
