My house also is located 15 minutes away by direct bus from 2 subway stations (Islington and Kipling) which will can bring you to down town in no time.
I use AirBNB myself when I travel abroad so I can understand both side of the coin.

Interaction with Guests
It's pretty much up to the guest, I tend to introduce myself and tell them to reach me if they have any question or need assistance, but I am open to more interaction, I guess that is also something that happens naturally .
Very quiet and peaceful place, mostly houses and some buildings, very close to the main highway and public transit
My house is 1 block away from Kipling which is a main avenue, you can take the bus there that can bring you to the subway stations, and you can ride the subway without paying an extra fare. if you want to save some money you can buy the daily pass or tokens at shoppers Drug Mart store located in the plaza 2 blocks from my house (Kipling and DIxon).
If you decide to drive, my house is located 3 blocks away from the main highway 401 which can bring you everything in no time.

Gaston and Ashley are great hosts! The space is as advertised and it really worked out nicely for me. The location is perfect if you need to be near the Convention center or the Airport. Thanks!
The listing was exactly as described, and Gaston was an excellent host. We were very busy during our trip and didn't have opportunity to talk with him at length, but he was very informative and made sure we had everything we needed.
The room was as described and the location is great if you're a driver, as it's close to the major highways which enables you to get anywhere in the city very quickly.
Gaston's air bnb was just what I needed - something close to the airport for a conference there. Gaston was responsive and considerate, and the room was clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.
Gaston's basement room/suite was wonderful and was perfect for the couple busy days I was in Toronto. A comfortable home base indeed. It was close to the airport was great (MUCH cheaper to take the 52 bus than a taxi, if you come in at an appropriate time), and was located conveniently next to a shopping center for any immediate needs. The room was clean, well furnished, and very comfortable. I didn't actually meet Gaston in person, but he was always accessible by phone/airbnb message.
Gaston provides a very comfortable and clean space. We parked in his driveway. His home is in walking distance to a shopping area with a pharmacy, grocery store and a McDonald's. Also close to downtown. Would definitely visit again! Thanks Gaston!
