I have one bedroom to offer in my apartment, a three story walk-up, with a queen size bed for one or two people. (I do have an extra futon in the basement if you are a small family.) 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 (request a visitor pass). 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 one 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 Yellow Door Password: Friendly
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!
You are free to come and go at any hour. Regular courtesy is all that is expected.
Me and my wife stayed two days stay at Janet's and in short it was great.
She's a very nice host, the room is like in the pictures, very clean and comfortable. Janet picked us up at the airport, drove around the city to show us a little bit of Toronto before we went home. It was very kind.
She also offered us breakfast e drove us to the airport to leave the city.
Janet is a very nice person, easy going and nice talking.
In the room description Janet says about the subway under her house, but it wasn't a problem for us. It didn't disturb us at all.
I totally recommend you to stay at her home.
Janet is a terrific host! She made me feel very welcome during my stay. Her home is at a great location for getting to almost anywhere in downtown Toronto, and her neighborhood is filled with bookstores, record stores, vintage shops, and some very good restaurants. She also provided breakfast and French press coffee during my stay--I really enjoyed being able to have a leisurely breakfast on her terrace.
Staying there was just awesome!!! Even it was my first Airbnb experience, I was relaxed there from the first day to visit! There were really comfortable to stay. And also Janet was very kind! She kindly took care me anytime. Chatting with her was so much fun! She recommended many good places to see in Toronto. Fortunately, I met her grandson during my stay! Science activity we did was so fun!!
Anyway, I spent great time there!! I hope to stay in her place again! Thanks a bunch for such a wonderful stay, Janet!:)
Chambre charmante qui correspondait bien a la description, dans un quartier jeune et dynamique . La maison dans une perpendiculaire à la rue bloor est bien situé.verdure et au calme mais à deux pas du métro, des restos, des petites bouquineries. Nous avons adoré discuter avec notre hôte qui parle très bien le français et nous a bien renseignée sur sa ville et alentours de Toronto. Petit déjeuner cool , bon café
It was so nice to stay at Janet's place. Everything is exact the same as shown on the list, clean, warm and cozy. Janet is very easy to communicated with, and I really enjoyed our conversation. We also had a lovely breakfast by the way. Thank you for all the things you did for us Janet. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

Janet gave us a very warm welcome at her home.The appartment is very cozy and in a great location from where you can easily reach public transfer or even walk downtown. Everything was clean and we had a great sleep in our nice room. Highly recommend this place!
