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.
I prefer to keep bookings to a one week maximum. I'm sorry if your stay in Toronto is longer!
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.
My stay in Joshua's place was an absolute pleasure. Him and his roommate were really nice and helpful especially for advices and parking. The house is clean and near all the facilities (subway, restaurants, grocery,...). Try High Park if you go here it's wonderful especially during spring when cherry blossom blooming.
The room was just as described in the listing and the instructions for arriving and entering the room worked perfectly. The room was immaculate, and Joshua put out some maps of Toronto and the local area. The bed was big and there was plenty of floor space. Bathroom was fine, with everything we needed.
Room is close to food, Toronto public transportation, and things to do close-by. It's located off the main street in a quiet neighborhood.
Our stay was great overall. Five stars.
We've spent about a week in Joshua's house. Joshua is very helpful and kind. Maps and coupons are available in the room, making our trip more convenient. The room is clean and spacious. I would highly recommend it if someone is looking for a room in Toronto. Especially near the Korean Town.
We had a very nice stay at Joshua's. He's an attentive host, welcoming us, helping us indicating a very nice restaurant for our 1st dinner.
The room is very nice, clean an comfortable. The house is well located, at 10min from a subway station.
We loved our stay and time we shared with you Joshua, many thanks. :)
We had such a good experience at Joshua's place that we didn't hesitate to stay again. This was our second time and as always, Joshua was very welcoming, respectful, easy to communicate with and his place super clean. His home is well located, close to the Metro and near plenty of cafes and restaurants. If Joshua's place is available, don't hesitate to book before someone else does!
We had a great stay at Joshua's place. The room was large, bright, and there wasn't a speck of dust on the floor. We also had a new, clean bathroom to ourselves in a huge house. Joshua was very welcoming and pleasant, and while he went out of his way to provide us with anything we needed, he also respected our privacy. Though the place is very close to downtown, we slept peacefully. Would recommend Joshua anytime as a great host.
Joshua did everything to make sure that we could settle in. The room is spacious and very clean, so is the bathroom. He is a great host and we enjoyed staying with him very much. He bakes excellent pies by the way. The neighbourhood is funky and lots of nice places to eat or drink, or have breakfast. Thanks again Joshua, we will certainly be back! :-)
