Catherine's home is a wonderful place that is cosy, clean and modern. As a lone traveller, staying here made me feel right at home and safe. Catherine's invaluable knowledge, friendliness, and humour made this a memorable visit, including our trip to Niagara Falls and my interactions with her three lovely cats. The room itself is comfy and as described; all I would suggest would be to get a better blind to darken the room. I would definitely stay here again if I find myself in Toronto. Thanks so much again :-)

This was one of my best airbnb experiences so far. Catherine is a lovely person. She helped me with everything I needed and gave me useful tips on how to get around. She was very kind to me and I felt there like at home. The house is located in a beautiful area in a quiet neighbourhood not far from the city center and the beach. I definitely recommend this place!

Catherine is a wonderful hostess! She made me feel very welcome in her home. I had everything that I needed to enjoy my stay. Her home is located close to the street car to get into the city. There are also bike share bikes nearby for exploring the beaches that are close by, as well as downtown. I would definitely recommend staying with Catherine.

This was one of my favourite Airbnb experiences. Catherine is kind, friendly, and welcoming. The room and washroom and perfectly clean. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The house is peaceful and quiet. It's located in the diverse neighbourhood of Leslieville. There are lots of hip restaurants, bars, activities, near by, downtown is only 25 mins away by street car. While I was there I went for a run down to Woodbine beach, it's beautiful! Only a 20 min walk from the house. I also had great meals at Mugen Sushi and Maha's Egyptian Restaurant.

Catherine's was simple and cosy. Photos are accurate but the house looks more lived-in. Bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. Ozzy, Katie & Daisy (sp?) are the loveliest of roommates. Catherine is accommodating and we shared a few interesting discussions. The kitchen offers all you need for cooking. WiFi worked well. The house is on a quiet street right off the main street. So many options for dining out and shopping. Some great street art in the neighbourhood as well. Public transit available 24/7 and fairly efficient. Location perfect to explore both the beach and the downtown areas. Family-friendly neighbourhood.
