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
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.
You are free to come and go at any hour. Regular courtesy is all that is expected.
