WHO WE ARE
We are a professional couple who love hosting and meeting new people, while at the same time we understand privacy. We are super passionate about food (I work as a food writer) and film and are eager to provide restaurant and entertainment recommendations - so please do not hesitate to ask!
There is street parking on our street, available by permit through the city of Toronto website -- you can book it online (you need to print it out and place it on your dashboard) as early as a week in advance for about $10 a day (which is an excellent deal).
Alternatively, there is a private parking lot less than a 5 minute walk from our house. They charge varying rates depending on whether you are parking all day, overnight, etc. They are located on the South West corner of College and Bathurst.
I really enjoyed the stay. Cosy and lovely furnished room. Very nice hosts.
Liora's place was great. My first Toronto trip, up for a family wedding, so always mixed emotions. Perfect location, handy to everywhere. Private space. Had been looking forward to meeting the hosts but they were laid up with 'flu, so next time. It was a great visit, and I'm really picky about the bed! Thanks, Liora.
Talk about perfect location, great hosts and awesome local advice on where to go & most importantly...where to eat! Food recommendations were spot on every time. Very welcoming I had a great time! The room was perfect...a home away from home. I definitely recommend & if I'm ever back in Toronto I know where I would choose to stay :)
Great stay - very well looked after by Liora. Great location of the flat. Thanks!
We had a great time staying with Liora and Kohen in the annex. The room is a really nice space, has a comfy bed, and was spotless when we arrived. The area has plenty of great food within a stones throw, and was no more than a leisurely walk to anything else we ended up doing.
As far as hosting goes - Liora and Kohen were great! Really easy to get along with, and they knew the area far better than I know my own neighbourhood!
I had a great time staying with Liora and Kohen. They are the perfect hosts, very nice & helpful people and they gave me the best food recommendations. The room is really nice decorated, quiet and has its own entrance. The house itself is perfectly located - very close to Kensington Market and the ideal spot to explore the city. I highly recommend this place and I will definitly come back!
Fantastic! We felt so welcome in your home. Thank you so much for the great restaurant advice!
wow...Liora and Kohen are perfect hosts. People people and food nerds - there isn't a better description. We can only urge you to follow their food recommendations and get tips on what to do and where to go. The location is ideal if you want to explore the funky parts of town and walk to your dinner places almost every night. If we come back to Toronto we know our place to stay....
The best things about this place are the friendly welcoming hosts and the location, near funky little restaurants and bars.
The room is fine, it's clean. It needs a blind or curtain to cover the street light at night time, and maybe a bedside light.
Some milk for tea would be good too.
There was a lot of building noise during the day, lots going on around the place.
I would recommend, it would suit many people, perhaps the young crowd would love it.
Good value for where it is.
I had an excellent experience here! Liora and Kohen were gracious and helpful hosts and their place was attractive and tidy. Their house is located in a very convenient Toronto location, a short walk to Kensington Market and a slightly longer walk to the Art Gallery of Ontario. I got a bike rental from the Mike the Bike (located in Kensington) for my 5 day trip and easily accessed the lake, downtown, and High Park.
