-- The Fancy Profile Write Up --

We are global citizens, Torontonians at heart, but much like everyone else in this great city of ours we've also started our journey on different continents and ended up here, in this village by the lake we now call home.

Toronto is the world's most diverse city and our expertise in hosting is the perfect spring board to your vacation in Canada's cultural capital. Through many years of delicious trial and error, we've scouted all the best (and cheapest) restaurants, we've tracked many walking trails and we were thrilled to learn the spurious and fascinating history of this city. Yes, Mr & Ms traveller, after 4 years of hosting, we are chock full of useless, but interesting Toronto trivia.

-- We interrupt this profile to make this correction: (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) reveals that Canada has declared “Fredericton" as the official cultural capital of Canada. Doh. --

Being travellers ourselves, you are likely to find out that we've may already visited the place where you are from, may have eaten the food, drank the water, hopefully without consequence, and took a ride on the carrousel. Please, pull up a chair, we'll put on the kettle and you can tell us about your journey. Connecting with our guests has been an integral part of the Airbnb experience for us, rewarding and priceless and personal, and we wouldn't rather do anything else… Well, that's not entirely true, being a cowboy for a few months could be fun. Or a gorilla wrangler! I'm pretty sure that's a job.

-- Random facts about us –

I'm an avid techy, I love all things shiny and new.

We have a wee dog, a beagle named Remy. He has become a mascot for us because he loves guests, those fortunate enough to share a roof with us for a time. He doesn't know he's a mascot, so please do not mention this to him.

We love Asian foods, spicy Hakka, dim sum (點心), delicious Szechuan, Lebanese, Mexican… oh, lordie, I'm hungry just writing this.

We were disappointed in “Better Call Saul", we think you can do better Mr.Gillian!

Vanessa secretly watches “The Good Wife", which television's version of unsweetened gruel. EW!

We have onesies and we're not afraid to use them.

During the TIFF one year we saw Jon Snow, and he's rather short.

In the worst winter weather we go out to the lake and walk on the frozen lake ice with our guests, and we bring back most of them, most of the time.
