Self-Introduction:
    Self-Introduction:

I'm an accountant and my husband is a professional chef in one of the prime hotels in Toronto. We have 3 children (Gabriel -19, Lorenzo - 14 and Leof - 4). Gabriel is taking up Accounting at Ryerson University. Lorenzo is in Grade 8 at St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School. Leof goes to Creative Preschool. We are a very laid back family who loves to watch movies. My husband and I love to cook good food which we share to our students. We love to visit the public library in front of the house for special events. On the summer we go biking to the beaches, which is very near to our place. We also walk to Greenwood Park or Jones Park to play and have cold drinks. On our day off we like walking around our neighborhood. Our house is located in a nice area where there are lots of small shops and restaurants and are also accessible to several grocery stores and is a walking distance from Gerrard Square. If we want to go shopping for clothes, Eaton Centre is just one streetcar ride away (less than 30 mins).

HOUSE RULES
SECURITY

2. Only papers or non-food items should be placed in the garbage can inside your room. Food waste should be thrown in the food bin in the kitchen. Food wrappers or containers should be disposed in the kitchen either in the garbage bin (e.g. non-recyclable plastics) or in the recycle bin (e.g. boxes, cans and recyclable plastics).

Great experience, though I do think the host has quite a few rules on homestay.
