The Space

I have one bedroom to offer in my apartment, a three story walk-up, with a queen size bed for one or two people. Breakfast is self-serve. Drinks, fruit, yogurt, bagels and cheese and cereal are always on hand for you and you are welcome to use the kitchen for other meals. Metro (grocery store) is close by. Have breakfast or a late evening snack on an inset deck, overlooking the tree-lined street. Or, if you prefer, coffee shops and a great variety of restaurants are only steps away on Bloor Street. So is the Bloor Cinema, home of the Hot Docs Film Festival, and it's not far to walk to the Royal Ontario Museum, the University of Toronto, Kensington Market or even the Art Gallery. The Bathurst subway station is also just down the lane, to take you wherever you need to go in the city. Bixi bike rentals are also close by. Whether you're in town for a short stay, or need a home base for a little longer, the location is ideal and you're welcome to make yourself at home! There's even a piano for those who might like to play and laundry facilities in the apartment that you are welcome to use if you need them.
I would like to add that I am not looking for a room-mate, so please do not request longer than a one or two month stay.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had a very relaxed stay here. The room was comfortable and the location is wonderful. And while Janet and I never managed to be in the same place at the same time, I appreciated her generosity in welcoming me into her home. I hope to be able to return someday.

  • Janet is a welcoming and easy-going host, so our stay in her home was very comfortable. She is warm and friendly, and we had a good time talking with her on several occasions. The room is as pictured, very cozy and clean. We had lots of space to put our belongings and a roomy closet to hang up clothes. The Annex neighborhood is really wonderful. We spent a lot of time walking around, visiting shops and bookstores and local restaurants.

    This was our first experience with Airbnb, and we couldn't have asked for a better host. Thanks so much!

  • Janet was a great host. She was very kind and accommodating. Check in and check out was so simple and tailored to our schedule for convenience. The location of the apartment is also perfect. Right by two subway stations and streetcar lines. As well as tons of restaurants and bars. I would definitely return to Janet's!

  • Janet is a lovely host, very friendly and helpful, although we only met her briefly. The accommodation is clean and well equipped and near to a bustling neighbourhood with great cafes and bars. It was everything we needed for an overnight stay in Toronto.

  • Janet is such great host, she made us fell like we were at home in her apartment.
    Her apartment is well located, very close to good restaurants, coffees, groceries stores and also really close to 2 subway stations - Bathurst station and spadina station.
    Her apartment is spacious, organized and comfortable. The bedroom has a good bed, desk, and plenty of space for put all your luggage.
    Janet is very nice, helpful and friendly. We had an amazing time with her!
    We are sure that everyone who comes to stay in her house will be really happy and enjoy an amazing experience! We highly recommend her for everyone!

    I hope everything is good with you. Don't forget to keep in touch because I'd love to hear how your studies go and what Gustavo ends up doing to use his time here! Thanks for being such nice guests!

  • Janet nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de gentillesse et une grande confiance, nous avons échangé avec elle à plusieurs reprises, d'autant qu'elle parle très bien le français... Nous avons pu profiter de sa cuisine pour préparer quelques repas. Le logement est fonctionnel, la chambre agréable, et Janet avait tout prévu pour nos petits déjeuners.
    Le quartier est animé mais la chambre calme, je recommande cette adresse!

  • Certainly it was a great experience. We spent almost one month in Janet's house. Her apartment is exactly like the pictures, very cosy, warmy and well equiped, very close to the subway (5 minutes walking). However, the best part was the owner herself, Janet was very kind and helpfull. We had a lot of good talks together, she's always willing to discuss about life, politics, culture and people. Finally, we totally recommend Janet and her place.

  • This was my first time using airb&b. I was very impressed with the way the site was laid out. Janet's place was exactly as she had described it. The room was comfortable and her location was great, right in the heart of the Annex. I would definitely recommend her place if you are just looking for a comfortable bed. Janet was not around much but was very helpful answering my questions. Thanks, Janet!

I'm a Elementary School French Immersion teacher, with a great curiosity about the world we live in. I'm very interested in natural science, history around the world, music and film. My interests, my job, my elderly mother and my grandchildren take up much of my time. The rest of it I like to spend salsa dancing!
