Hi! My name is Kirsten and I've been welcoming International students and travellers since 1995. A Window display artist and yoga teacher, I love meeting other creative, like minded people.
My home is a cozy oasis just east of downtown Toronto and a 5 minute walk to the Main Street subway and GO train station. There's a 24 hour supermarket around the corner as well. The room has a single bed, desk, wardrobe and shelf unit.
In summer you can relax outdoors on the covered back porch, have a meal, read a book, or simply enjoy the garden.
In addition to your private room, you have access to the shared upstairs bathroom and the kitchen for some light cooking. The back porch and garden are available in the summer for quiet relaxation. You may use the laundry facilities as well. I teach 3, 90 minute yoga classes a week - Tuesday mornings and Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. There is no access to the kitchen at those times, so you would need to plan your meals accordingly.
Interaction with guests
I can help orient you around Toronto, recommend places to visit, and will try to answer any questions you have about our city.
Other things to note
I teach yoga classes from home on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 7 to 8:30pm, also one class Tuesday mornings, 10 to 11:30am. During that time you will not be able to access the kitchen. If there's space you may join the class free of charge.
No smoking or pets. The bathroom and kitchen are both shared spaces, so please consider the next person using it. I have a more detailed list of household awarenesses that I will leave in your room.
