Our home

Our house is a bright, clean, and warm home with a gas fire place in the living room and central air conditioning. There are area rugs over walnut hardwood floors and a front view of a treed lot and garden and a back view of the garden patio. It is located in an area known as the "Beaches", one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city. The modern kitchen has an island and serving bar that is adjacent to both the dining room and the garden patio. The garden patio off the breakfast room has an outdoor grill and provides a lovely setting for outdoor dining in the spring, summer and fall. Although we are located in a very popular spot in the city, because of its slightly raised location away from the road and the many trees in the neighborhood it is in fact a quiet and private location. We are interested in also exchanging cars. We have a 5 passenger .

Who we are

  1. Kathy and I are in our 70's. We are both retired. We enjoy traveling and especially like basing ourselves in one location and taking side trips so we can get to know an area better. We have greatly enjoyed all our exchanges. We were married fifteen years ago and both have 3 adult children living on their own in the city. So, there will be plenty of support in town to provide advice about the city.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The beaches is a very unique location. We are a 5 minute walk from 4 km of park land and beach along Lake Ontario. There is a 4km boardwalk as well as a bicycle path along the lake. The Olympic size pool is right on the Boardwalk about a 10 minute walk from the house. The bicycle path is part of a network of bicycle paths that allows one to cycle through the many ravines in the city. One hour north of the city there is snow skiing in the winter and many lakes for swimming,fishing and boating. There is also a large amusement park with many exciting rides, just 40 minutes from the city.
Also for those who love camping and roughing it the Algonquin National Forest with its bears, beaver, deer and moose is just a three hour drive. Niagara Falls, the Niagara wine country, the Shaw and Stratford Theatre Festivals are just over an hour from the city. Of course 800 metres from the house you can take a 30 minute streetcar ride to downtown Toronto. The city has been called Hollywood north because of large number of movies that are made in the city. Because of its low crime rate, its many theatres, cultural venues, and any possible ethnic restaurant you could possibly want, Toronto has also been referred to as a clean safe "little New York". The Beach area itself has many restaurants, specialty shops, a supermarket, and 2 cinemas within walking distance from the house.
