Helena’s place is awesome. Extremely clean and cozy with two welcoming dogs. It’s 5 mini walk from the 73/48 bus station and about 20 minutes walk from the Royal York subway station. It’s about an hour away by public transportation to downtown Toronto. I really enjoyed the neighborhood here. Also, the family was very caring when my friend burnt her arm. Helena cared about my friend’s recovery very much. I had a pleasant experience staying at the house.

'Luxury on the Kingsway' indeed! The photo you see of the bedroom in the listing makes it appear much smaller than it is! - this was a beautiful, spacious room, with a wonderfully creative wood bureau, made by Helena & Michael's son!, and a large organized closet. This home is magnificent: re-built from the ground up using old materials from torn-down barns and such. As an example: the towel rack in our private bath is a rough old wooden ladder, leaning against the wall!- brilliant. :) The shower itself is one that has sprayers to wash you every which way. Divine! And, the tile floor by the sink and toilet is heated somehow! (maybe the hot water pipes run under the floor?) Helena had had a very busy day on the date we'd booked, and let us know in advance that she would not be available, but that her husband would check us in and give us info and a key, which worked out fine. We had realized we most likely would not have a chance to meet Helena, due to our late return from a concert in town, and her early departure for work in the morning. Yet, when we returned close to midnight, there was Helena to greet us and chat for a few minutes before ending her day. That was completely unexpected and so thoughtful! Thank you, Helena. Wish we'd had more time to spend. In the morning, we enjoyed the high-tech coffee maker and some fresh fruit, bagels and pastries left for us. We loved Cody and Bella, the dogs...and never saw the cat! :)

Dulcie, thank you so much for such a great feedback. You were wonderful guests and I hope as we continue this endeavour that we will meet people just like you, so kind and considerate. I am glad that our cat did not cause you any allergic reactions, perhaps he knew to stay away...LOL. The floors are heated. As a matter of fact, our whole house heating system is floor heating. There are hundreds of meters of pipes in the floor under the wood and hot water circulates through it. It is supposed to be one of the more environmentally friendly heating systems. Once again, thank you for visiting and of course you are welcome to come back any time. :)

Helena and Micheal are great hosts. We were new to the country and were looking for a nice place to stay for a month with our toddler. Helena and Micheal's home was the perfect place for us and we couldn't have asked for anything better! The house is nestled in a quiet, upscale neighborhood, bestowed with Canada's natural beauty. With a blend of traditional and contemporary architecture, the house is well furnished with a beautiful kitchen. The guest bedroom and bathroom were very clean and the amenities matched that of a luxury hotel. The dogs - Bella & Cody and the cat, Scamper are very friendly and love people around them. The house is perfect for families, couples and solo travelers who prefer to stay away from the busy city & yet be within half an hour's drive to downtown.

Helena offers a gorgeous and fantastic space! I stayed there for four weeks, and I loved it! The location is pretty good, it is easy to get to downtown and to airport. The neighborhood is beautiful and safe. Everything in place is exactly as described, and the room fells even mehr spacious then it looks in the pictures. All, down to the last details, is so stylish and clean! The bed is very comfortable, perfect wardrobe and the best bathroom ever! Helena and Michael are lovely, positiv and super helpful in all questions and requests! They were very flexible with checkin and checkout wich was very helpful in managing with the flight timing. Their family is friendly and easy to communicate with. Their dogs and cat are just brilliant :)! I felt really very much at home and enjoyed my stay a lot! Thank you very much for all! I would definitely recommend Helena's place and consider it for myself in future!
