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. If you come by car, free parking is available behind my building. 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 long-term room-mate, so please do not request longer than a two month stay.
Guests will have access to the whole apartment. They are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare meals and to relax in the living room or on the deck.
Interaction with Guests
If I'm working I'm often out early and home late, so I'm pretty busy. To the extent that I am available, I am happy to provide information, engage in conversation, or leave you to your privacy, as you wish.
The neighbourhood is near the University of Toronto and so is bustling with activity. Bars, cafes and restaurants are plentiful. The Bloor Cinema (all documentaries) is minutes away. The ROM is just down the street.
Parking is available behind the building. The apartment is located between two subway stations. Bike rentals are close by.
Other Things to Note
1. WiFi is Bell 548 Password: 4E53FFC1
2. I'm afraid that living near the subway also means, in my case, living directly above the subway. You can feel the vibrations of the trains as they pass underneath. Most people find they get quickly accustomed to this and it is not an issue. But one guest was afraid it might be an earthquake, so I think it is important that you be forewarned!
Janet's place is great, clean, nice, and well located (restaurants and subway). We have a great time ;) she is adorable!
She bought some eggs, coffe and yogurt for the breakfast.
Janet has an awesome place in a great location. She is super close to the subway and U Toronto. Like me, Janet is learning to play the ukulele. She let me play her uke and I got to show her some chords.
I will definitely stay with with Janet in the future.
We only stayed one night but would have loved to stay longer! The place is well located and lovely. More importantly, Janet is super kind!
I had a brief but lovely stay at Janet's place. She has a beautiful home and the room was perfect. The location could not be better. Would love to come back again!
Great location, easy access to subway, restaurants, activities. Our host was very friendly and provided with some good advice of the area and places to see. The room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay again on our next trip to Toronto.
Janet was a kind and welcoming host! My husband and I spent 3 nights in her cozy apartment. The room was exactly as listed; clean and cozy, with a very comfortable bed. We lived in this neighborhood for 6 years and it's an excellent location for anyone wanting to explore the city, or just hang out in a fun and funky area with lots of great dining and shopping options (our personal fav's - Kilgours Bar and Sushi on Bloor). Yes, the subway does run under the building, but it didn't keep us from a good night's sleep. Janet made us feel like we were old friends, but was also very respectful of our privacy. Can't wait to come back in better weather to enjoy her lovely little deck, and swap more stories.
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 and music. My interests, my job, and my grandchildren take up much of my time. The rest of it I like to spend salsa dancing!
