Our home

We live in a large, Victorian house, with many original features which we have painstakingly restored. Our home is well kept, very clean and very comfortable, we would like to exchange for same. On the main floor, is a large living room with fireplace, large dining room, and bright newly renovated eat-in kitchen. Off the kitchen we have a large west facing deck and we bar-b-que and eat outside most nights in the summer. The deck overlooks a spacious, private garden. Upstairs, we have two large bedrooms, office and bathroom with large clawfoot tub. The third floor is bright and open plan, with sleeping accom., complete bathroom with shower and small west-facing balcony. The other bathroom is in basement along with a finished TV room, which is nice and cool in the summer! The house is completely furnished in antiques and unfortunately is not suitable for young children.
I hope you may be interested in receiving more information and pictures, which I would be happy to send to you.

Who we are

  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.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are located in a very quiet residential neighbourhood, called "The Beach" in Toronto, 15 minutes from the city center. It is a vibrant, interesting area, with lots of trees, parks, restaurants, and shops, families and dogs! There is a beach and boardwalk (and bike path which runs right through the city along the lake) at the lake which is very popular and draws people from all over the city in the summer. There are music festivals of all kinds, the most popular of which is the “Beaches Jazz Festival”, held every July, which is a bit of a misnomer as it features ALL kinds of music.
The city is very clean and safe. We have wonderful art galleries, live theatre, museums, opera, symphony, great public transit, very diverse ethnic areas, professional baseball team, golf courses, etc. We have exchanged several times in the past and our exchange partners have thoroughly enjoyed the amenities in our home, the neighbourhood and the city.
