The space

Bring your passport and enjoy an international vacation destination! Windsor, Ontario, is this area's best-kept secret. Located directly across the river from Detroit, it enjoys all the amenities (culture, sports and entertainment) that Detroit has to offer, while keeping the feeling of a smaller town.
Come and enjoy our beautiful vintage home with award-winning gardens within steps of Coventry Garden waterfront park, the Detroit River and Peace Fountain. Enjoy our safe, quiet tree-lined boulevard and your spacious private room with cloud-like queen size bed with luxury bedding and private bath. Room has a sitting area with breakfast station, microwave and a small fridge for your convenience. Free wifi, and on street parking available.

In the morning, watch the ships pass by on the Detroit River while you enjoy a bottomless cup of coffee (I did say my relatives are American, didn't I?) on our beautiful verandah. We are close to public transportation and minutes from the Detroit-Windsor tunnel. Head to Detroit to enjoy the Detroit Institute of Arts, housing many renowned masterpieces. Attend sporting events at Comerica Park, Ford Field or Joe Louis Arena. Only a bus ride away, Detroit is so close that it is recognized as our "home" teams. Come and cheer for the Lions, Tigers and Red Wings!

My daughter and I visited Windsor, in May 2017, for a swim meet my daughter was attending. We booked a room at Carol's place with ease. Carol was a pleasure to work with, from the moment I first sent her an inquiring email to the last day of our stay! She welcomed us with freshly…

Carols home was as beautiful as they were in her photos. Very warm and friendly Hme and she's just as welcoming and helpful. Carol is a fantastic host. Although we did not get to stay at her home as long as we would have liked due to family hosting and events this weekend in Wind…
