Recently renovated house in the well developed middle class neighborhood with GOOD walking score is only a 10-minute bus ride to the subway offers easy commute to downtown. It has been a delight to run homestay for international guests for more than 10 years. We are a semi-retired couple, friendly and interested in learning more about the world. Elena is 65. She speaks English, French, and Russian and enjoys cooking, watching movies, music, festivals, reading, learning foreign languages, talking to friends, travel, television, gardening, nature, board games, theater, and opera. Sergi is 77. He speaks English and Russian and enjoys cooking, watching movies, music, reading and travel. The house location can be described as "oasis within a city" - quiet and well kept. Backing onto a huge park it is only steps from the bus stations for 6 bus routs that allow a very good transit connections with different parts of Great Toronto Area and vicinity. Within a walking distance are banks, coffee shops, restaurants, food supermarkets, Dolarama store. Nearby Community Center provides free access to swimming pool and fitness room. The walk score of the neighborhood is 78. The action of North York City Centre is only 10 minutes away by bus. When you are ready to take a break from the city hustle the Ross Lord Park will be available for you with its extensive trails, soccer fields and picnic areas. We love to go there for a walk, to feed squirrels or ducks.
