  • Beschreibung


    Our home is in Toronto, a 20 minute ride to downtown on transit. My husband and I (mid 60's), are very busy with work as he runs a construction company and I am the office manager. As well we are very active in our volunteer activities which take many evenings and hours on the weekend. We have a small bungalow but a large perennial garden, and are just 2 blocks from access to the largest park system in Toronto.

    We will need help in the garden once it starts to grow in the spring, usually by the end of April to early May. This would entail digging, moving plants, weeding and cutting the grass. Some experience would be preferred. As well, help is needed with daily household cleaning and chores and again some experience with house cleaning would be good, as well as taking our spaniel for walks.

    Toronto is a very large cosmopolitan city with many attractions, nightlife, international cuisine and more. We are a short train ride south to Niagara Falls or north to great beaches in the summer as well as many activities in the winter such as skating and skiing just 2 hours north of the city.

    Toronto is the 4th largest city in North America, and one of the largest multicultural cities in the world. Very nearly every ethnic group is represented here with their cuisine, culture and festivals. We have a world class zoo, aquarium, major league sports, art gallery, museums, and theatre productions. Toronto is a very green city with hundreds of kilometers of parks, bike and walking trails, beaches, streams and rivers.

    As neither my husband or I were originally from Toronto, we have been active tourists here over the past 40 years so can recommend a variety of activities to suit any taste. We also have 40 years experience teaching English as we volunteered in tutoring centres, so while we don't speak other languages, we can assist with the understanding of English.

  • Unterkunft


    We have a separate guest room with a raised double bed (there is storage under), that has a small desk, dresser and area for hanging clothing. This room is downstairs but has a south facing window so it is bright. We have a washer/dryer and also have an outdoor clothesline. We have a large deck in the backyard so there is a comfortable place to sit outside and BBQ.
    Food is provided and I will usually cook dinners but will appreciate any help at times.

    There is a bus stop just steps away that takes you to the main subway line. You can be downtown in 20 minutes or less. We are very close as well to major shopping outlets.
    While we recognize that Canada has legalized marijuana, we are not comfortable with having someone living in our home that uses it.
