Cozy, convenient, and clean. On a quiet street nestled in South Cabbagetown, which is walking distance to most east-end and downtown attractions. An ideal home base for your stay in Toronto!

The space

A second floor private room in a spacious house in South Cabbagetown. Your room features a comfy double bed, dresser and desk. Suits one person or a couple. All utilities, wifi, and use of washer/dryer included.

Guest access

You'll share (with the two of us) our luxurious washroom complete with shower, heated floors, and bathtub with jets.

The main floor is open-concept and bright and includes the shared kitchen, dining space, living room with fireplace and TV with Netflix, and opens directly to a gorgeous back garden patio. Use of the BBQ is also available. Shared entrance.

Note: if you like the idea of a bit more private space, take a look at our other listing which features private washroom and private living room:

Interaction with guests

I respect privacy, but also enjoy good conversation. I'm happy to provide recommendations on attractions, restaurants, cafes, etc. around the city!

Other things to note

We also have another listing so you may be sharing the common areas on the main floor with 1-2 others (in addition to the two of us) during your stay. But there's plenty of room for all!
As of January 2017, we no longer have a cat.

Dale's and Karen's place is great and welcoming! I really enjoyed staying in their home which is in surprisingly quiet area. Nevertheless, other areas of Toronto can be easily walked to (15-30 minutes) or you take a streetcar that is very close by. I would highly recommend staying there when in Toronto!

Dale and Karen were amazing hosts. When I arrived Karen was there to greet me. She thoroughly explained where things were and any other info about the house that I found to be helpful. They were very hospitable during my stay and gave me great recommendations for things to do during my stay. I felt very comfortable in their home. They have a lovely home and the room was very clean.

I stayed at Dale and Karen's place for three nights and everything was excellent. I did not get to meet Dale due to his schedule but I did meet Karen. They were both very helpful and offered a lot of advice since I booked the room all the way until I checked out. Their beautiful house was very clean and spacious with a great kitchen and living room area. My room had everything I needed and the house also has a large backyard, though I didn't use it. Downtown Toronto is less than half an hour away with a subway station just under 15 mins walk away or quicker if you use a streetcar nearby. Overall, my stay was great and I would certainly stay at Dale and Karen's house if I visit Toronto again. I highly recommend it.

Great location down town. Beautiful, luxury, cozy and characteristic home! Both Karen and Dale are kind hosts willing to help you enjoy your stay. They made me and my sister feel very welcome :). The rain shower and the clean big house is a big plus. Definitely would recommend this place!

I'm a theatre artist who enjoys food, sharing stories, and exploring cultures. I love coffee and I love Toronto. As a host, I respect privacy, but I also enjoy conversation and helping people discover everything that this great city has to offer.
