Shelly and Coleman were great hosts-- friendly and helpful, but also respectful of our privacy. The space was comfortable and more spacious than I expected, and we really enjoyed the location and exploring the neighbourhood.

Shelly and her husband were so lovely and welcoming, very helpful and accommodating to us! The apartment is very big (bigger than the pictures portray). It had everything we needed, and the neighbourhood is beautiful and very safe. Thanks so much Shelly!

Shelly is an amazing host! When we first arrived we were greeted with a bottle of wine and snacks. To add to that, she had fresh bagels, coffee and more delights stocked for our stay. The 2 bed room suite is very spacious with a warm vibe. The neighborhood is beautiful with a large park nearby and restaurants within walking distance on St. Clair. Shelly is a lovely lady who truly cared about our enjoyment during the stay. Sincerely, Daniel

We had a great two night stay with Shelly and Coleman. Our apartment was spacious, quiet, and clean; the bed was comfortable. Shelly even provided welcome cookies, and breakfast items. The neighborhood is great for walking. People are friendly, and St. Clair Ave. with it's many restaurants is just a short walk south.

Shelly was fantastic and accommodating with our changing arrival time. The place was clean and hospitable, with everything we needed for a family of four from Australia. Shelly even provided some breakfast things which were very welcome on the first morning. ;-D

We had a great two days staying in Shelly's and Coleman's home. Although self-contained Shelly and Coleman were always available to help with recommendations.
