Notre maison

Our beautiful old red brick home circa 1880 has been completely renovated as a labour of love. We have kept the original character of the house with its many unique period features while fitting in all the comforts required for family living.
We are situated in a trendy, yet quiet, family friendly neighbourhood with mature trees, parks, restaurants, coffee shops etc known as " the Beach" due to its proximity to Lake Ontario. There is a boardwalk along beach as well as a bike trail.
It is hugely popular and a great place for families and people of all ages to enjoy.

Our home is comfortably furnished completely with antiques, so, not suitable for children. The spacious rooms with high ceilings are flooded with sunlight from south facing windows. The large living room has a wood burning fireplace and is open to entry hall and dining room. The kitchen is full of character with marble counters and stainless steel appliances. The cabinets were custom made using re-claimed wood trim from old houses the same vintage as ours, so they look like they could be original. I love to cook so the kitchen is well equipped. The kitchen sliding door opens to a large, sunny west facing deck and spacious garden which has plenty of privacy despite having friendly, quiet neighbours close by.
The back staircase, (seen in kitchen photos) the second one, is a shortcut up to the two large main bedrooms on the second floor. Both of these bedrooms have queen beds and new mattresses, one memory foam, the other super plush. This floor has a bathroom with huge old clawfoot tub original to house, great for soaking after touring art galleries or a round of golf! There is another room, formerly a bedroom, now used as a bit of an office/library that leads to next staircase to third floor.
The third floor bedroom is 900sq' complete with two new and super comfy twin beds, shower ensuite, balcony, skylight and windows in all directions. It is wonderful and bright and extremely quiet.
The lowest floor below grade, houses a third bathroom, with shower.

Ideally located in high demand area close to plenty of public transport to downtown Toronto and it's many attractions.
Toronto is a clean, safe, vibrant multi-cultural city. The variety of cultures makes for a great foodie town. There are distinct ethnic neighbourhoods in the city, so if you are looking to try a specific food from anywhere in the world you will find it here!

We keep our home very clean and tidy, expect the same and would do likewise for yours.
Non-smokers only please.

Experienced exchangers!
We were fortunate to have experienced 5 exchanges through a different organization when our children were young. Four of them were great, the other not so much as the house was not as clean as we would expect. We understand the responsibility entrusted to us by our exchange partner and treat their home with even more care than we do our own.
We always endeavour to leave it in pristine condition.

Have family in Canmore, Alberta so happy to go there anytime.

Would love to visit New York, NY for short term exchange.

Anywhere close to London, England would be brilliant!
Uzes region, Provence ....especially in winter.

Apprenez plus sur nous-mêmes

  1. We are, Fiona and Keith. I (Fiona) am currently teaching kindergarten, after many years at home with the kids during which time I had a small floral design company. Keith is a general manager/insurance broker.We are both approaching retirement and look forward to lots of travelling in the next few years. We are both mad golfers, so, that is in the back of our minds at all times. However, there are some places that we would visit and happily leave our clubs behind.
    When our children were younger we exchanged houses 5 times and loved the opportunities it offered us. It was great to actually "live" in a different place and get to feel the rhythmn of it, something that you miss in a hotel or even B&B. Our three grown children, 29,26,24 may/may not be interested in joining us in some of our trips.
    We would leave you our home as clean as you would find a hotel, (and hopefully vise-versa, we did have a bad experience once) with a dinner prepared for your first evening meal, essentials in the frig, information about the neighbourhood and friends who will help you as needed. In other words, we will do everything we can to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
    We would value the trust you have placed in us in allowing us to use your home. You can be assured that we will treat it with the respect that is deserving of that trust.
    Look forward to hearing from you!
    cheers Fiona.
