Welcome to the Beaches. We are a friendly Canadian Family that loves to share our large 5 bedroom home with people visiting Toronto. Our house is located in a fabulous, very safe neighborhood, big trees, very pretty and close to everything. The house is quiet, relaxed & we are very friendly. We appreciate people choosing to stay with us and we go out of our way to make sure their stay is as good as it can be.
We are a short walk to Queen St and the Beach. Close to loads of great stores, coffee shop, restaurants and a grocery store is a short walk away. The boardwalk and beach is only 5 minutes away if you want to go for a walk on the boardwalk, run or bike on the bike path . There is an Olympic pool that you can use a few blocks away at the community recreation center that is open year to go for a swim, work out or take a fitness class.

Our house is an environmentally friendly place. No chemicals used in cleaning; hand soup, laundry, dishwasher detergent or household cleaning products.

We are happy to interact and help out our guests. Tell them about Toronto and help with directions around Toronto. Or if you would like to keep to yourself that is totally up to you and fine. We give you a key so you can come and go as you please.
The Beach is wonderful neighborhood. It is a very safe, friendly and a beautiful place to live.
We have 4 children but only one son who goes to George Brown College who still lives at home. We are all adults, so our house is a quiet relaxed and an easy going place to be.
We have two friendly cats. The mostly keep to themselves unless you want to give their head a pet once in a while. .
There is parking in the school yard a few houses away. Your car can be there in the evening and over night but has to be moved to the street in the morning before the teachers come to school. During the weekend there is no problem. Depending on availability we have one extra parking space at the back of the house on our driveway.
We are one streetcar ride to the Distillery District, CN Tower, China Town, Eaton Center, LeslieVille, Greek Town. So many places to visit in Toronto.
Our house is a 2 min. walk to the street car stop, that runs 24 hours a day, to downtown Toronto. If you want to get to the subway, it is a 5 min bus ride to Main St. Subway station.
We have been hosting guests for many years. We have met so many wonderful people and have enjoyed the experience with each one. We want our guests to feel at home and enjoy their stay at our house and in Beaches.
