Welcome to the Beaches. We are a friendly Canadian Family that loves to share our large home with people visiting Toronto. We are located in a fabulous, very safe neighborhood. Big trees, and close to lots stores restaurants,pubs and fresh food markets close by. The Beach is a 5 min walk. with the boardwalk running along it and a bike path that takes you downtown. If you want to go downtown by streetcar, it is very easy, one streetcar away which stops at the bottom of our street.

The space

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 great.
Our house is an environmentally friendly place. No chemicals used in cleaning; hand soup, laundry, dishwasher detergent or household cleaning products.
We have a very good high speed WIFI connection with free unlimited usage.
Bathroom:
You have a private bathroom, with a bathtub, shower, sink and toilet. This bathroom is for guests only but please note, it is located in the finished basement. You are also welcome to use the other 2 bathrooms, one on the main floor and one on the 2nd floor (where the bedrooms are), but for showers we ask that you only use the basement bathroom.

As well as our house being environmentally friendly, we also have a Whole Home Water Filter. This means that ALL water coming into the house has gone through a large 3 tier water filter system. All the chlorine has been taken out...not evaporating into the air or on your skin and leaving very reduced fluoride in the water.
The Room:
It is a Queen size bed, with adjustable air cushions so you can make the bed firm or softer as to your liking. With a south facing window. It is on the 2nd floor, equipped with a mini Fridge, desk and chair, bed side table, dresser, closet. There are ceiling fans in all the bedrooms and when the weather gets hot, there are window air conditioners that we put in the bedroom windows.

Note: Please no smoking in the house or the front or back porch. You are of course welcome to smoke but we ask if you could do it away from the house.

If you want to eat out, there are so many choices of places to eat on Queen st., which is a 2 minute walk from our house.

Clean towels and bed sheets are supplied. There is a hair dryer for guest to use and if you forget your soap, toothpaste or shampoo, don't worry we have extra that you can use, all you have to do is ask.

The bathrooms are cleaned once a week. There are cleaning supplies in the bathroom if you need it cleaned more often.
Free unlimited WIFI, big screen TV, Washer and Dryer

All bedrooms have a lock on the door.
We have keyless entry to the house, you will get the code upon arrival 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 friendly place to be.

We have an extra parking space at the back of the house in our driveway. We don't charge extra, it is free if you need it.

Guest access

We have a Kuirig coffee maker so you are welcome to make yourself a hot cup of coffee in the mornings, or tea if you prefer, and there is a grocery store around the corner to buy food for meals. For your first morning we can provide you with a cup of coffee/tea and toast with something nice on it until you find your way around. You have a mini fridge in your room to keep your food. You have full access to the kitchen to cook what you would like to eat. We just ask you to clean up after yourself.

Relax in the dining room, living room or watch TV in the family room. You are welcome to sit by the gas fireplace in the winter or in the summer sit on the front porch, sit on a lounge chair on the big back deck or in the covered gazebo off the kitchen where you can eat meals or just relax. If you want to eat out, there are a ton of restaurants to choose from along Queen st, (at the bottom of our street) or there are also lots of great restaurants on Kingston Road, which is just north of Queen St., again very close.

Interaction with guests

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.
Your bedrooms has a lock on the door and a key.
We have keyless entry to the house, you will get the code upon arrival so you can come and go as you please.

Other things to note

We have two friendly cats. They mostly keep to themselves unless you want to give their heads a pet once in awhile. Although if you do, they will love you for it and probably follow you around.

Roberta’s place located a mere 400 meters from The Beach and I was running on a beautiful boardwalk every morning and riding my bike all the way to downtown (11km) on a PanAm path. Playing volleyball on Woodbine beach (3km away). Dining at restaurants on a lively Queen street. Could not ask for more. My room had a comfortable bed, office desk, little refrigerator and a small, but efficient AC. All in proper order. Thanks a lot for allowing me to stay.

Everything was as described at Robertas house. Room was suitable for two guests and it was cozy. Robertas family was very welcoming and helpful. They pretty much had answer for anything we asked. The beach and grocery stores etc. were as close as described and the beach was beautiful.

Roberta and her husband Mike are fantastic hosts! They are just great people who made us feel right at home and were extremely helpful in giving local advice on where to go, what's happening in town etc. The room was great, spacious and the bed was really comfortable. The location at the Beaches is fantastic only 30mins on the street car into downtown, there is a magnificent boardwalk by the lake to walk or run along as well as many shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from close by. A brilliant area. Would happily stay with these guys again and highly recommend anyone coming to Toronto to stay here! Thanks again for everything Roberta & Mike!

This was my first AirBnB experience, and Roberta and Mike were gracious hosts. They were very welcoming upon my arrival and everything was exactly as advertised. Easy access to lots of great restaurants, and less than 30 minutes to/from downtown. I would definitely stay there again.

Roberta and her husband Mike were very welcoming. The room is cosy and the location is great to discover the area of The beach. Toronto city center is easy to reach thanks to the street car number 501. The neighbourhood is really quite (perfect if you want to spend a good night) but a walking distance to Queen street, a cute street with shops, restaurants and groceries. Great place !

We had an absolutely wonderful stay with Roberta and Mike. They are kind, friendly, helpful and a lot of fun to talk with. The house is in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood with restaurants, bars, grocery stores, ice cream shops and the beach just a few minutes walk away. The streetcar and bus stops are just 2 minutes away The house is beautiful and beautifully clean. We had a refrigerator in our room and were welcome to use the well-equipped kitchen. My favorite things that came with the house were their 2 delightful cats. Highly recommend!

I teach dance and fitness throughout Toronto. My husband and I have been married for 29 years. We have 4 children ages 18-27, with only 1 child living at home now.

We are both very friendly and honest people. We have lots of friends and love to socialize. We also love to just stay home and watch one of the many TV series (we are addicted to) on TV.

Our family is very health conscientious. We try to eat very healthy food and lead a very healthy lifestyle.

Lastly and most importantly, we love to spend time with our kids and our extended family. Family is so important in our lives.
