Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Welcome to our classic century home in High Park - Roncesvalles, one of Toronto's most liveable neighbourhoods. Our quiet side street is literally steps from shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and a transit hub (Dundas West)to connect you with the rest of the city. On the main floor, find a spacious and modern kitchen (gas stove), a bright breakfast area facing the back garden, plus a large dining room and parlour. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms, bathroom, family room, plus laundry facilities (washer and dryer). In the warm months, you can enjoy drinks in the peaceful back garden or on the lovely front verandah. Street parking is available and bikes can be stored in our locked garage.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We're fortunate we can walk to the best the area has to offer. We're steps from bustling Roncesvalles Ave. with it's quality restaurants, cafes and stores - very kid and family friendly. Toronto's largest natural urban oasis, High Park, offers a break from the city hustle and is an easy 10 minute walk away. But if you're up for a 20 minute stroll, you could head north to the funky Junction Triangle; or head west to upscale Bloor West Village; or south to the shores of Lake Ontario. Need to get downtown, or further afield? We're a 5 minute walk to the Dundas West transit hub. Connect here with the UP airport express (Pearson Int'l), Toronto Transit subways, busses and streetcars. The heart of Toronto's financial and entertainment districts are less than 30 minutes away. University of Toronto campus is 15 minutes away. Regional GO rail service, too, for Kitchener/Waterloo to the west, Barrie to the north, Oshawa to the east - and the rest of Canada via Union Station - are all easy to access from here. PRESTOcard payment is accepted on local transit and GO rail, plus all the regional transit systems around Toronto.
Other ways to get around: ZIPcar operates in Toronto: a Budget Car Rental agent is within a 10 minute walk; Bike Share Toronto has a couple of pick-up/drop-off stations in the neighbourhood.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Toronto is Canada's largest city and the 3rd largest in North America behind NYC and Los Angeles. It's the most culturally mixed, as well, with over 200 ethnic groups represented and 140 different languages spoken besides English and French. Needless to say, you'll find anything and everything in Toronto.
Here's a quick taste of the city: https://vimeo.com/30788720
Looking to visit the USA? We are a 1 hour drive from the border crossing at Niagara Falls. You can also fly to either NYC or Chicago in 1 hour from Billy Bishop airport, located minutes from downtown on the shore of Lake Ontario.
