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.
You are a very very nice host. You shared many things with us such as traveling and language learning. The breakfast you prepared was super delicious. We felt much comfortable when staying in your space. Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful place to us! We really enjoy staying in your house!!
My and my friend arrived at Jane't place on March 21st/2015. She was so welcoming and very friendly. We chatted and she showed us some of arts in the house. The place was beautiful and very close to everything in down town Toronto. As an artist I wanted to shoot some photos and videos while I was there, she didn't mind at all, shoot a couple of pictures and videos. I will definitely stay again if I happen to have another chance and will recommend to anyone who would like to stay there.

J'ai été très bien accueilli par Janet. C'est une personne chaleureuse et généreuse qui m'a mis immédiatement à l'aise. De plus elle parle très très bien français, c'est un plus pour les voyageurs qui ne parlent pas couramment la langue de Shakespeare.
Concernant la maison, elle est très bien située, très bien entretenue, fonctionnelle, etc.
Un séjour parfait, digne d'un palace parisien. Merci Janet.
Maintenant vous savez ou aller :)
Janet os amazing! We have the best time of our life in her house. She always was friendly and we love her so much! Thank you for everything! We really recommend her house!
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'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!
