Stay and eat breakfast daily in one of two private bedrooms on the second floor of my comfy house. Rooms are nicely set up for study or work with access to free Wifi. You and the other guest share a 3 piece bathroom. Close to downtown and the beach.

The space

Each second floor bedroom is simple, clean and comfortable. There is one person allowed in one/each room. I rarely use the second floor except to clean the bathroom and staircase or to retrieve items from the off-limits third bedroom. My shared main floor is cozy and warm. Feel free to use my TV and DVD player. I have Netflix and Apple TV. I also have some DVD's which you are welcome to watch while here. In the summer, there is a lovely, deep back yard to sit out in. The neighbourhood is safe and within walking distance to cafes, a grocery store, a gym and a 20 minute walk to the beach.

Guest access

Once here, feel free to share my dining room, living room and kitchen with me and the other guest. Please note, that there are negotiable cooking privileges but feel free to use the toaster, microwave, toaster oven and fridge whenever you like. There isn't any access to the basement. Please don't use the back door during the colder months. There are three, locked bedrooms upstairs, you will have access to one of the three. The third bedroom is a private room that I still use, the other is for another guest.

Interaction with guests

While here, I'll be happy to answer any questions you have about Toronto and the whereabouts of places and events. I used to be a city tour guide and a host to International Students for 15 years, so feel free to ask away!

Other things to note

You are welcome to eat any bread products, cold cereals, deli meats and cheeses, fruit, jams and spreads that you see in the fridge and specified cupboard. There is coffee and a variety of teas available for you too. Make sure you wash your own dishes and leave them in the dish rack to dry. I will put them away.
Provide your own toiletries except hand soap, toilet paper, hand towel, face cloth and personal bath towel. Of course, I provide linens and pillows too.

My visit to Deanna's place has been short but very pleasant. Deanna is extremely kind and pro-active in answering and giving suggestions to any question or problem a guest might have. The bedroom I slept in is nice, comfortable and very clean. For the bathroom Deanna clearly explains that you have to provide some of your own toiletries but it's very clean and perfectly fine. The location is 10 minutes walk to the subway station which brings you downtown in a few minutes. I recommend staying there.

Thank you Filippo for your kind review! Yes, it's true about the missing hair dryer! One of my previous ESL students had taken it by mistake and I forgot to replace it. Don't worry! Your hair always looked great without it! Hahahah!

The host made me feel very welcoming! She made sure she was able to welcome me in person by making time out of her busy schedule and I appreciated that. She gave me a tour of the house. Her house is probably the cleanest air bnb place I ever stayed at. Very impressed. The location is awesome, because I was able to visit the beach which was walking distance.

I had a wonderful stay in Deanna's warm and comfortable home. The room I stayed in was sweet - small and cozy, but just what I needed. I had a great sleep, and the house was peaceful and quiet at night. Deanna is lovely - warm and welcoming, with a great sense of humour. She also told me about lots of great spots to visit in the city, which was really helpful. The neighbourhood is great, close to the Beach and with all the amenities I needed - grocery store, restaurants, gym, and a great cafe/coffee shop. To top it all off, Merlin the cat is an absolute sweetheart - I almost popped him in my suitcase. I highly recommend this spot!

Hi! My name is Deanna and I have hosted many English as a Second Language students from around the world for the past 12 years so I have loads of experience welcoming people into my home. I have a big fat friendly cat named Merlin. I enjoy cooking, eating, entertaining, individual sports, knitting, reading, watching movies, going to concerts and speaking French. It is my greatest wish to make you feel cozy and comfortable. Bienvenue!
