My place is close to the heart of Downtown Toronto. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers. Public transit is but a 5 minute walk from the house. The CN Tower, Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, China Town, Kensington Market, St Lawrence Market and many more attractions are a short distance 15-30 minutes public transit ride from my home.
I live across from Dovercourt Park which you can view from the front window of your room. The cover photo on my listing is taken in High Park which is a 10 minute Subway ride. This park is huge and a natural setting for the outdoor enthusiast. There is even a free zoo in this park. Definitely worth a look and a nice long stroll while you are here. I have 2 bedrooms on the upper floor and both rooms have locks on the door. The rooms can accommodate 2 people comfortably. Bedroom 1 has 2 single beds and bedroom 2 has a double bed. Both rooms come with a rocking chair, a computer desk, a fan and a TV set up for movies. The shared bathroom is set up on the same floor as your room along with the shared kitchen that is there for your use. I also have a bedroom on the main floor that is used as a meditation room. This room has a single bed suitable for 1 person.
As our guests you will have access to our living room, our cable TV, our hot tub, our back yard and our laundry room.
We will try to make your stay enjoyable and will offer insight on activities throughout the city.
Quiet time after 11pm
HOT TUB USE BY APPOINTMENT
I am an easy going person who loves to meet new people. My picture is a shot of me and my grandson just being silly which is an activity I hold dear to my heart. Life is way too short not to be silly at every opportunity. Hosting people from all over the world has an appeal that I know will bring contrast into our lives. As contrast is the spice of life we look forward to having a co-creative experience with our guests as we share our commonalities and differences.
I am an outdoor kind of guy who loves to fish, camp and ride my motorcycle as often as I can hit the open road. I play tennis, cycle and enjoy going for long walks in High Park.
My wife Claire and I just returned from Scotland where we stayed with 3 different AIRB&B hosts. We both love to travel and have been throughout the USA and Canada, India, Israel and New Zealand.
We have 2 cats Seeba & Namo and a dog named Kali. All are friendly and will stay out of your way if that is what you wish. They will also accept all the love you wish to give them if that is your wish.
We have a small backyard that we have made into our oasis. I could sit and listen to the varied wildlife that comes by for hours as I lose track of time just enjoying the stillness of mother nature. Our outdoor hot tub in the backyard may be used by appointment as there is one simple hygiene rule for its use. Showering prior to entry is mandatory as this ensures all the oils on your body are kept out of the tub. . Essential oils such as lavender, cedar, lemon are permitted to enhance the spa experience.
As our guests you will be able to use our cable TV in our living room if you wish. There is a TV in your room that is set up for movies with a good selection of DVD's to choose from. Claire and I will do everything that we can to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one.
We look forward to meeting you.
