I have a 2 story+ basement house with a large backyard on a quiet residential street. We have one room available on the upper level. It's a bright room with many windows, a closet and a really comfy bed. We may have another room open as well (please check back). My place is good for solo adventurers and business travellers.

The space

The room is lined with windows, has a large closet space and always fresh bedding and furniture. You will most likely be sharing the house with 2 people (myself and one international traveler) as well as 2 cats (often outside).

Guest access

You'll have access to the whole house if needed, but there may be another tenant in the basement unit, so we respect their privacy.

Interaction with guests

I am available for any questions you have about the city (we've been here many years!)

Other things to note

If you have any serious allergies or concerns, please let us know. We have hosted travelers for a number of years and have experience with many situations.

Helena is kind and cheerful. It was a first time to come to Kanada so she gave me a map. Furthermore, she prepared my breakfast everyday. But there is not a hairdryer. It was important for Japanese girl Thanks for everything!

Response from Helena:
Kumiko,Thank you for your feedback I will take notice of the hairdryer request for future guests.However,I'm sorry this was your experience.I certainly take pride in a high standard of cleanliness and ensuring each guest receives freshly cleaned; blankets,sheets pillows etc as well as providing 2-3 towels on arrival. Carpets and flooring is also attended to prior to each guest. thank you Helena

Room as pictured, comfortable and bright; Helena was a nice and quiet host. Her home is close to the subway and a GO train station – perfect if you are traveling without a car. The neighbourhood is quiet and very family-friendly.

I stayed with Helena for about 3 weeks, and it was a great experience. It really felt like getting back to the roots of what Airbnb started out as. Helena made me breakfast every morning, and often shared her meals with me. I miss our conversations about politics, art, and life. It was great getting to meet her lovely daughters when they visited on occasion. It was so important to feel like part of a community and to get insider tips about the city. Even though I was traveling alone, I never felt lonely at Helena's house. :) While the neighborhood isn't exactly trendy or hopping, it was very nice to be RIGHT next to two major subway stations and right next to a GO train station. This made it very easy to travel around the city on public transit. There is also a large grocery store just a few minutes' walk away from the house, so this was super convenient. I also enjoyed walking about 30 minutes south to the trendy Beaches neighborhood. If you're looking for places right by the house, I can recommend Cool Runnings if you like Caribbean food and Press Coffee & Books for a cute coffee shop. Overall, if you're looking for a safe stay with a host who really treats you like family, stay with Helena!

I have a spacious 3 bedroom house with backyard and 2 cats. I have had students stay with me for 10+ years, as I have 2 extra rooms in the lower level. Currently it's just myself at the house. I'm an artist and I work from home and my backyard studio. A light breakfast can be provided (ex. juice & toast). We have a preference for female guests as this is often requested by other guests from particular cultures. Thank you for understanding!
