Our location is actually WHITBY, a city 40 minutes from Toronto but VERY accessible to Toronto. We have 2 rooms (and even 1 couch if there is a large group of people coming) available. Our house is large, peaceful backyard with a hammock, and a neighbour who will let you use their swimming pool as long as one of us is there with you. It's in a quiet neighbourhood with lots of trees. Each bedroom has a double or queen bed, a desk, closet space, windows, room to sprawl out. One room is not available at the moment because I'm living in it, but I wouldn't mind sharing it with a girl. I could put an inflatable mattress or you could sleep with me, whatever works- but keep in mind we have the other room too. So if someone wants to come stay here in July they're more than welcome to use the spare bedroom, and the couch, and possibly an air mattress in my room. The house is 4 minutes from a bus stop. Buses come every 30 minutes in Whitby. The bus stop we are near will take you directly to the train station (a 15 minute ride or LESS), where the trains run all day to and from Toronto. Whitby is roughly 40 minutes from downtown Toronto. Basically your expenses would just be some money for food (I wouldn't mind helping you out with half your food needs! We have lots to spare and my sister and I are both vegetarian so if you are, we can cook vegetarian meals!) and then for your transportation to Toronto. It costs $2.75 to take a bus to the station but my mom could drive you to the Train Station if she is home so don't worry. A train to Toronto costs $14 for a day pass. The last Train ride from Toronto back to Whitby leaves at 12:13 am from Toronto Union Station, but there is an evening shuttle bus that leaves the bus area at Union Station at 1:20 am, which you can take at no extra cost. Or you can stay out clubbing all night and take a train back early in the morning. The first one is at 5:13 I believe, but during those early hours there are lots of trains that run express, so they take 25 minutes.
Have to yourself My small clean bedroom with skylight, new double/full futonbed (with bedding), desk & chair, portable stereo, (no vacant closet or dresserdrawer space but enough floor space in the room for your open luggage or to take things out/spread about) in cute, clean, tidy, nicely furnished small two-bedroom/one-bathroom house in the Old Cabbagetown area of downtown Toronto. This is a calm household with a laidback and positive/welcoming/accepting energy and sees little visitor traffic. Please, no smoking in the house (there is a tiny front porch and mid-size private backyard patio). Short walk to anywhere in downtown/city centre, seconds to taxicab or streetcar, five minutes to subway or bus, twenty-thirty minute drive to/from airport. I do share the house with one housemate who spends half her time in the house. She is early to bed, early to rise (unfortunately). Comfortable house with style and character in a pleasant neighbourhood. ArtDeco furnishings, ecclectic art, mid-size eat-in kitchen with skylights (cooking/eating utensils and fridge/freezer/cupboard space provided), formal dining room, lovely sitting room, small den/living room with stereo-tv&vcr-magazines(music/art/film/urban culture/world/leather), beautiful small bathroom with vintage fullsize clawfoot bathtub (no stand-up shower)/bedet/skylights (towels provided), shaded back patio with table/chairs, garden. Neighbourhood restaurants, shops, pubs, lounges, nightclubs, groceries, galleries, salons, services, post office, laundry, library, parks, botanical garden. There are no dander/hair-carrying pets living in the house BUT a friend occasionally visits with her short-haired dog. I have a serious dander allergy and the brief doggy visits do not bother Me besides a few sneezes...so if you too are dander/hair-allergic, you would probably be O.K. also. There is a large fishtank in the dining room with a dozen freshwater fish residing.
The space available is an attic room [the top floor of a house, under the roof] with big windows. It can be hot during heat waves. Steep staircase, has a romantic "artist garrot" feel. Has a single bed, with floor space for sleeping bags. Suitable for one or two people. Man, woman, or couple; straight or gay, all are welcome. This room is also used as storage space, so it appears cluttered. My home is in South Riverdale [the east end of downtown Toronto], 20-25 minutes by streetcar [or an hour plus walk] to all the downtown museums, galleries, tourist sites, etc. It is a 10-15 minute walk to The Beaches neighbourhood or The Leslie Street Spit. If you have a bicycle, it is even better. The streetcar stop is 1 minute from my front door, and it operates 24 hours a day. My neighbourhood is quiet, stable, working class. My home is a bit chaotic and cluttered. I am not a minimalist. My home renovation is still ongoing, with some missing plaster, floors that haven't yet gotten their finished wood top, etc. Big bathroom [still being renovated] with plants and skylight. Kitchen is fully equipped. Provide your own food. If you are a good cook, cook something tasty that we can share. Clean up after yourself. Leave things cleaner than you found them. Wireless Hi speed internet. Laundry facilities. Ask first before using phone or computer or laundry. I enjoy travelling, but can't do it currently; so you will be my window onto the world. Earlier in life I backpacked for 9 months in Peru/Bolivia/Argentina/Brazil and a couple months in India. Plan to relax on my deck, under the tree, and tell me about your travels. I am a Quaker, if that means anything to you, and I attempt to live simply, honestly, straightforwardly, with integrity [and sometimes I fail]. I expect absolute honesty and cheerful co-operation from my visitors. Length of stay is five nights, unless we get along so well that I invite you to stay longer. Harvey
I live downtown Toronto walking distance to many amenities, subway, streetcars, buses, grocery, wine/beer/liquor stores. I am with in a half hour walk to many of the city's landmarks and attractions. I also live in what is known as Toronto's gay area so you should be at least gay friendly if you are considering a stay on my couch. I live alone and do not have pets. There is a balcony for those that wish to quietly smoke outside, but No Smoking inside the apartment. I work full time during the week but can be available to show people around on weekends/evenings. I'd prefer to host on weekends but if you need a place to spend the night and hangout I could be open to weekdays. My sleeping schedule is all over the map but generally during the week I'm in bed around midnight, weekends I'm more of a night owl and generally wake up before 11 am. There is WiFi available for those traveling with connectable devices. I can provide blankets, pillows and towels if needed. I can host for 1 to 3 days negotiable. My home is vegan, vegetarian, carnivore and pot friendly.
Location: Near High Park, on the subway line 10 minutes from the downtown core. Very safe area with many grocery stores, restaurants, bars, shops, web cafes, libraries, parks and the lake a short walk away. Bed: Depending on the time of year we either have a bunk bed type bed available in our spare room for one or two people, or we can provide the pull-out-couch that forms a double bed located in our basement living room. - we generally always have enough blankets but to be really safe you may want to bring a sleeping bag. Amenities: - Kitchen with all the fixin's, but you have to buy your own food. - Internet access is available as well but first priority is given to homeowners. - Digital cable television access. Two showers and toilets. Homeowner: A friendly police detective and his daughter (me) who works on a freelance basis, studying part time and traveling. Both of us have much experience traveling and appreciate the need for a safe, warm place to crash.
I have 2 spare bedrooms, in the larger room is a queen size bed, dresser, sofa, closet, mirror, small table and chairs. Comfortably sleeps 3. My 2nd spare room is slightly smaller and is furnished with twin top and double bottom bunk beds with a trundle bed that rolls out, dresser, closet, love-seat, mirror. Comfortably sleeps 4. Both rooms on the top floor of the house. The 2 rooms share a large 3pc bathroom. The floor has a miniature fridge and a microwave, Kitchen on floor below shared with the whole house, depending on the situation I will stock the fridge but you might be asked to bring your own food. Both rooms share a balcony with a BBQ and a seating area. We ask that you don't bring pets but we wont turn you away. Smokers allowed, we just ask that you smoke outside/out the window. Safe area of downtown Toronto, Yonge and Eglinton. Steps from train, bus and lots of places to eat/shop/do touristy things.
I am delighted to meet new people and make new friends all over the world. I have a self-contained apartment with its own entrance, part of a suburban home in central Toronto. A subway station, offering access by subway train rides to the major points of interest in the city, is a couple of minutes away. The accommodation features a bedroom, kitchen, shower and bathroom. The bedrom has carpeting, a rocking chair, sofa, travel posters, a library of travel books and movies, bunk beds and a TV-VCR. There is a free Internet facility at a nearby library. Also nearby are a swimming pool, hiking trails, tennis courts, supermarkets, coffee shop and a public park with benches and picnic tables. The back of the house has a porch, patio, storage shed, BBQ area and a picnic table under an apple tree. I welcome the young and young at heart of all ages who conduct themselves with courtesy and respect.
Comfortable, small room with a ceiling fan, cable tv, closet and bathroom nearby. Oh! And of course a twin bed with clean, fresh sheets. Other: Huge kitchen. More likely than not, we will feed you and just recently had a friend stay from Japan. If you need to use the internet, we have high speed internet for you to cheaply keep in contact with your friends and family. 2 minutes away from the subway and 15-30 minutes to downtown Toronto and its affiliated attractions via subway. Very close by to a cultural district among the many that are located in Toronto. Many grocery stores, fresh fruit and meat markets and 4 banks down the street from my house. A clinic is nearby and a dentist is also nearby, should anything happen. PS There is a McDonald's in case you have a hankering for food that is universal (though that will not be a problem in multicultural Toronto).
We have a small one-bedroom apartment in the heart of Little Italy, on the ground floor of a three story house, downtown. "We" are my partner (a musician), our two cats, and obviously me (an Executive Assistant, though I'm pretty sure I'm a coffee shop owner at heart even though I've never even worked in one!) We have a fold down futon in our livingroom, so as long as you don't mind our two cats, and you're not a smoker, and we're actually in town, then you might like to stay here. I work 9-5 so I can show you around in the evenings, and my partner's schedule changes weekly so we never know what she'll be doing. You can feel free to use our kitchen, though we'd appreciate it if you bought most of your own food, as we are on a tight(ish) budget. Oh, and we'd hope you'd be gay friendly, as we would probably not get along if you aren't cool with that.
Your accommodation depends on how many people are coming. I have a very large place so you will have privacy. You may end up sleeping on a couch, on an air bed, in a real bed or in your own sleeping bag. After you make contact I can give you details. If you are travelling with a friend or partner, feel free to do your own thing. Ask about anyhthing ahead of time. Other than consideration for others, there are no house rules. I hope you have a great sense of humour or maybe you are the deep philosophical kind? Or both? If you smoke, it will have to be outside. I can't see any reason why your stay will not be very, very pleasant but don't be shy if there is anything on your mind. I can accommodate up to four adults; any more, and we won't fit into my Volkswagen. I would like to show you the city and some of the surrounding areas.
