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. :-)
Beautiful room and place, great location. Richard was very nice and accommodating! We would revisit anytime we're in Toronto. Thanks!
Vicki's house is in a lovely, central neighborhood. The room itself is large with a very comfortable king bed. Vicki was out of town during my stay, but her house manual provided all of the information that I needed. I recommend her place wholeheartedly! I would definitely stay here on my next trip to Toronto.
Vicki and Richard's place was great -- the room was one of the most luxurious I have stayed in, whether hotel or airbnb. My friend and I both enjoyed our stay a lot and the location was great. Richard was very helpful with everything from printing parking permit to giving me some tools to fix my cell phone. Highly recommended.
This is the second time I choose to stay here during my trip in Toronto, the home was very clean, lovely and artistic. It's very convenient to access and leave the house. There are lots of restaurants surrounded, near Korea town and Chinatown. Just 10mins work from Bathurst subway station and several mins from street cars. Vicki and Richard were very nice too!
It's a great experience to live here, the home is very beautiful clean and quiet, for I've met both Vicki and Richard, they are very nice and enthusiastic, the room is big, i really appreciate the king size bed, finally I want to repeat again, the home is very beautiful.

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!).
One of the best Mexican places in town and it's at the end of our street. Funky taco combinations.
This is one of the first great coffee shops in Toronto. They had a clover before anyone else and make excellent cappuccinos, macchiatos and americanos.
