I live in the east end of Toronto. It is a bungalow and has a large backyard. BBQs are splendid in the summertime! The bus downtown is a short 3-minute walk from our home. The beach is 3 subway stops away and one can venture there in about 30 minutes.
We have 4 bicycles, which our guests are welcome to borrow during their stay. There are a nearby recreation centre and adjoining park with outdoor tennis courts and swimming pool, splash pad for children, soccer, track, and baseball diamond. Shops, banks, churches, mosque, Buddhist temple are in the vicinity.
