A short stroll leading to the suite"This is the first time I've used Airbnb, and was a bit skeptical about it initially. However, the five days my family and I spent in Don's apartment cleared every doubt I had. Besides his hospitality and genuine concern for the welfare of his guests, his apartment met my definition of a home-away-from-home. Indeed, his description of the apartment in his listing is without any embellishment. In addition, we're particularly grateful to Don and his lovely wife for dropping us off at both Union Station (where we took a tour bus to Niagara Falls) and Toronto Pearson Airport. If it were possible to give Don a 20-star review, I'd gladly do it in a heartbeat! Thank you very much Don!"

This basement suite is amazing - clean, tidy and spacious. Everything was just as described in the listing. The hosts are super accomodating, friendly and courteous. My family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to visit the area. Also, access to the highway to drive to Toronto is only 2 minutes away!

Don was very attentive to be sure that our booking was made. When I had a problem with Airbnb he was able to help. He was very responsive to my questions. And we had great connection through texts. Everything is just as the pictures show. When we arrived very late, he kindly assisted us with our luggage and helped us to open the suite. A great host! Would plan to stay again!

Don's home was extremely comfortable and he is a great host. He was kind and was always willing to suggest things to do if he were requested to do so. If you need a quiet and comfortable place to lay your head at night for a great price this is the place to be.

I'm a business/finance professional working in the finance industry, that being said though, I love the outdoors and love to travel as soon as the opportunity presents to me. I can speak fluently in 3 languages : English, Cantonese and Mandarin.

If your stay is more than 8 days, I will try my best to accommodate to provide free pickup and drop off to/from the airport, as well as to provide free short-term luggage storage.
