Interaction with Guests
We are sometimes away when guests are staying. If we are in town one of us usually works out of the house so we are around.
We are in one of Toronto's most amazing neighborhoods, close to downtown but on a quiet tree-lined street with big old Victorian homes. It's safe and peaceful and blocks away from such vibrant neighborhoods as Little Italy, Kensington Market, the University of Toronto, Annex, Ossington and Bloor St.
Public transit is very convenient. We are located right by the subway line and streetcars and within walking distance to downtown.
We do not allow anyone into our house who is not a paying Airbnb customer. This is our private home and we welcome you to it but we do not welcome your friends or others into the house with you. :-)
This entire house was gorgeous as was our room. Vicki and Richard provided clear instructions for getting in and there was minimal contact which was perfect for us as we were getting in late and leaving early. We briefly met Richard who was very friendly and jovial. There were detailed instructions in the room regarding the house, its perks and inclusions. This stay was perfectly ideal for what we were looking for!
We received good advance information on access and contact details before arriving, and in any event Richard was there to greet us when we arrived which made things simpler and was appreciated.
I loved my stay with Vicki and Richard in their Beautiful home. They were warm and welcoming and I was beyond comfortable and happy with my choice of staying in their place .I slept really well in the King super comfortable bed in a Lovely room ( even Lovelier than the photo ). I would love to stay there again and can recommend it highly to all . There is something very special about this house and these people it's a deep calmness and sense of peace. That's what I was looking for and I found it there. Thank You both for creating such a special home and Airbnb to share with guests. A++ !!!
Great location on a quiet street close to eateries and a subway station. The room was well appointed with a large comfortable bed and heaps of info about the surrounding city.
We had a great time and would definitely use this air bnb again.
we, a German couple, had a great time staying at Vicky; in the morning she shared the kitchen with us as breakfast-loving Germans very patiently and we got plenty of interesting tips for visiting the town.
The room is situated near to the stations of different streetcars and china-town is nearby. Nevertheless the place is very calm, situated in a street with nice traditional houses.
It's highly recommended to stay there.
Vicki and Richard were wonderful hosts and I could not have had a better experience. Their house is beautiful and in a great neighborhood. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. I would highly recommend staying here.
Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft ist absolut zutreffend. Das Zimmer befindet sich in einem sehr geschmackvoll eingereichteten Haus. Alles ist sehr ordentlich und sauber.
Es ist gut möglich Downtown zu Fuss zu erreichen oder alternativ bequem mit dem Streetcar oder der U Bahn.
Kensington Market, Little Korea, China Town und Little Italy sind in unmittelbarer Nähe.
Vicki und Richard sind sehr hilfsbereite und freundliche Gastgeber.
Ich kann diese Unterkunft nur wärmstens empfehlen und komme gerne wieder :-)

About the Host, Vicki
We are world travellers and have lived in Europe, the US and Canada. We are passionate about entrepreneurship, how we learn, culture change, human potential, photography and design. We have a vast collection of books (from those days when people bought books) with lots of great photographs (Richard's passion, along with flying) around our home. We love meeting new people and making connections that make the world a better place. As we are often travelling we look for independent guests who can let themselves in and manage on their own (with simple to follow instructions that we leave for you!).
