El lugar

Hi There! I've been renting out rooms in my home to international guests for over 15 years! The bright and beautiful Sunny Front Bedroom (located on the main floor of the house), is a large room, with high ceilings, a hardwood floor with an area rug on it. This room has a huge south facing window (so is very sunny) and has lots of storage space (a 12 cube storage unit) as well as a place to hang your clothes, a lovely little desk (that can also be used as a bedside table/night stand) and chair, lamp and a very comfortable twin bed. There's also a large fan that can be used and a window (with a screen on it) so you can open it as you like in the warm weather. Every room in the house has a radiator (which is heated by hot water) in it, which heats the house in the colder weather months. This location is the most desirable in all of Toronto. The Walk Score is 92 and Transit Score is 100! : 0)

Disponible para huéspedes

El dormitorio frente soleado comparte el cuarto de baño del sótano (situado una planta abajo, en el sótano) con hasta 2 otros (huéspedes internacionales / housemates), una cocina grande encantadora (y uso de la nevera, microondas, estufa, horno, Lavavajillas), comedor / sala de estar (también situado en la planta principal). Desafortunadamente no hay acceso de patio trasero en este tiempo, sin embargo hay un pequeño parque encantador una calle sobre, y muchos otros más grandes por toda la ciudad!

The Sunny Front Bedroom shares the basement bathroom (located one floor below, in the basement) with up to 2 others (international guests/housemates), a lovely large kitchen (and use of fridge, microwave, stove, oven, toaster, kettle, dishwasher), eating/sitting area (also located on the main floor). Unfortunately there is no backyard access at this time, however there is a lovely little park one street over, and many other larger ones all over the city!

Atención a los huéspedes

I work full-time, but can offer advice and suggestions about places to go and things to see, but I don't have to, if that's your preference.

Otros aspectos destacables

Si te alojas en una de las habitaciones de la planta principal (habitación frente soleado o habitación de jardín), hay un gato amable (16 años, llamado Oliver) que está en todas las zonas comunes, así que tienes que estar bien con esto. La cocina se comparte con otras 3 personas amigables (otro invitado internacional, y 2 compañeros de habitación a largo plazo). Además, tengo un registro de antecedentes policiales hecho en mí mismo (me gusta tenerlo para que sepas que estás viviendo en un hogar seguro, y también porque a veces trabajo con niños): 0).

If you are staying in one of the main floor rooms (Sunny Front Bedroom or Garden Room), there is one friendly cat (16 years old, named Oliver) who is in all of the common areas, so you must be okay with this. The kitchen is shared with 3 other friendly people (another international guest, and 2 long-term roommates). Also, I have a police record check done on myself (I like to have it so that you know you're living in a safe home, and also because I sometimes work with children) : 0 ).

Barbara was very welcoming and responsive. My flight into Toronto was late and Barbara was very nice and accommodating. She also offered me a late checkout since the room was not booked for the day of my departure. Overall - she is an awesome host!

We had a large bedroom with big windows and lots of natural light. Everything in the house is really clean and tidy. Barbara is such a friendly and great host! She was very accommodating and really did her best to make our stay more comfortable.

I spent 59 days in Toronto to do summer research in U of T. It was maybe my best choise to decide stay in Barbara's house. First, the house has a great location. It is on a quiet street called Follis Ave which is near Buthurst street. Buthurst is quiet and clean, totally unlike its parallel street Spadina which nears the U of T. However, it's quite convient here. There's a subway station on Buthurst, which could take you to everywhere. Also, it would probably takes you 7mins to walk to Bloor street, which is one of my fav street in Toronto. There are a plethera of restaurants and interesting stores on the street. I used to work in the lab till midnight, but went I walked home at 12, there were still a lot of people on Bloor street. Dollarama, Fiesta Market are the markets nearby. What's more, U of T, Casa Roma, ROM, AGO and Kensington Market are all in walking distance. Second, Barbara is really considerate, and there are a lot of stuffs that I haven't expected in the room, like air blower, lamp, fan, extra sheets, extra blankets, leaflets of the place of interest here, baskets for clothes. We could also use the glasswares, cookers, cutlery, crockery, the oven, the microwave oven snd fridge in the kitchen, and paper towel, shampoo, body lotion, washing machine, dryer and also liquid detergent. You dr need to take a lot of things with you, here's everything. Third, there's a lovely cat in the public space called Oliver. He is 18 years old, but still very very cute. During my stay here, we became best friend. As soon as I opened front door when I came back, Oliver would start to cry to welcome me. He loves my room and always lies on my luggage for the sunshine. I could do nothing but watching him for a whole day. We used to sit together on the couch in the dining room, like brothers. When I was about to come back to China, Oliverreacted as if he knew that I was leaving. He's like my first pet. Forth, here you could get to know many interesting people. There are usually 3 to 4 tenants here, and they are all very nice. It's great to meet people from all over the world here. I will miss Barbara, Oliver and Toronto, and recommend here to my friends. Hope to came here again~

Awww! Thanks Jerome for such a lovely review! I was just now brushing Oliver with the brush you'd gotten for him (I'd forgotten to thank-you for that ) and saying how he must miss you! I hope you'll come back again!

My experience at Barbara's place couldn't just been better. Got a warm welcome , guided tour with all the info about the house and room. Barbara is a lovely and very kind person, allways there to answer your questions and help in what is possible. Ill give 6 stars for the communication , wich was pretty easy. Very quiet and cozy place, neighbours are also quiet and kind. And if you like cat's then you will love Oliver, he will come greet you at the door, if you feel lonely he will make you company for sure. Lovely Clean place, equiped kitchen, washing and drying machine... Barbara makes a great effort to provide you the best conditions during the stay. Thank you Barbara, you are a awesome person !!!

Barbara's place is absolutely lovely and she's such a great host! She made everything very easy for me - from before check-in to checking out. She's very friendly, accommodating and takes your individual needs into account and checked up on me often to make sure I was doing okay, which was greatly appreciated! She's also always up for a chat which was great for me because I love talking! I felt instantly welcomed and very comfortable. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean with plenty of storage space and natural light. Same goes for the rest of the house and the bathroom. Very homely and comfortable. The house itself is located in a great area- pretty, very safe and located right in the downtown core. A few mins away from the subway and streetcar , a few seconds away from a bus stop and seconds away from restaurants and shops etc. But you're so close to everything you don't even really need to use the transit - everything is within very walk-able distances. Very safe too- I felt completely comfortable walking back late in the night. And Oliver the cat is super friendly and super mellow! Overall I would definitely recommend staying with Barbara if you're visiting Toronto- it would be hard to find a better place or a better host!
