I'm from Toronto, Canada. I speak English, French, Russian and very poor Spanish. I study theatre, linguistics and education. And I love travelling and hosting.
It was my first time in Toronto and I was very excited and nervous. It was also my first time to use airbnb. Art was incredibly helpful even before accepting my application to stay at his place. Art's studio apartment was cute and tidy and everything like the picture and description. I would definitely reccommend his place and would for sure stay again if i were in town. We didn't spend much time together but he was very kind and really helpful with great tips of where to go.shop, eat and things to do in Toronto. Thanks Art!
Art est un invité agréable, qui mène sa vie tranquillement et aime partager aussi quelques moments de détente avec ses hôtes, moi-même en l'occurrence. Il aime également les chats ce que mes amis à moustaches ont apprécié pendant son séjour.
Art is amazing i recommend him!!
Art has been a very nice guest with interesting stories to share. I can true recommend hosting him.
Art was a great guest. He only booked for just a few days, but easily could have had him around longer. Very pleasant and kind, he even brought a small gift - a small bottle of authentic Canadian maple syrup. Since I've been a host on AirBnb for over a year now, he's the first guest I've had to make such a gesture. A nice touch.
I didn't have the chance to meet ART since I was away but the studio was in a great state when I came back and my friend Pierre who got to meet Art couldn't stop praising about him! It seems that I missed the chance to meet a great guy! another time maybe :)
Very Polite Guy and repect our property.
Art was a great person to meet. He was a wonderful guest to have. I wish him all the best and hopefully we will meet again :)
Although Art had a busy schedule and we haven't had much time to chat, it was very nice meeting him. He was a great guest!
I've known Art for about 5 years. We met through a common friend and soon became friends, too. He was a frequent guest at our place when my family lived in Toronto, and we often visited him in his downtown apartment. If you decided to stay at Art's place, you've made the right choice. He is a very reliable person, always ready to help, knows a lot about Toronto. He is an experienced traveller and knows how important it is to get local advice if you really want to explore a new city.
If you host him as a guest, you make the right choice, too. He is very respectful of other people, no matter what nationality, religion, or way of life. Chances are, you find not just a tenant, but a new friend.
Art is a very reliable and creative person. And what's more important - very tolerant and respectful of other people's feelings, preferences and private space. I met Art almost two years ago and we've been friends since! If you also want to learn more about theatre and music - Art can talk about it for ages :)
I met Art at the University of Toronto, where we took classes together, and in the past four years have had the opportunity to work with him on various projects, as well as travel with him. Art is an incredibly respectful and considerate person. He is a wonderful host--organizing elaborate dinners and providing live entertainment with his beautiful piano--as well as a great visitor, with his positive personality and good manners: anyone would be lucky to have him as a guest in their home!
