Picture Perfect in Pickering

  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom


Hello - My name is Lynn. This homestay is open to female students/travellers only. I live in Pickering, right on the edge of Toronto, minutes from 401 highway. This makes my home a desirable area, as it is close to both Durham College, Centennial College, University of Toronto East Campus (Scarborough), and UOIT in Oshawa is a short train/bus ride away. My home is located a 10 minute walk from a bus stop that will take you to the GO Bus/Train system, which in turn, will take you to downtown Toronto where you will have access to the Toronto Transit System and will get you to where ever you need to go. I have a large home to share and I can offer you your own bedroom, bathroom and private living room in a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood. Lake Ontario is right across the street along with miles of trails for walking and biking. I have 2 cats – Felix and Ellie, who share the house. I am in human resources and work for a global company. This means I have travelled extensively and thoroughly enjoy meeting and getting to know people from different cultures and backgrounds. It makes us all richer people. I have lived in the Toronto area my entire life and so would be very well experienced to help you get to know the city and how it works. I am strong, native English speaker and more than happy, and capable of assisting you with your English language practice and questions. In addition to your own bedroom, bathroom, and living room, you will also have access to the kitchen and laundry room. You have your choice as to where you’d prefer your desk – either in your bedroom, or the larger private living room in the basement. The house is equipped with WIFI, high speed internet, and HD television. You would have access to a variety of breakfast foods that you may help yourself to. All dirty dishes made by a guest while preparing and eating their own meals, must be cleaned up immediately after they are done (there is a dishwasher available). No smoking or overnight guests will be allowed. Large room with double bed on second floor, south facing, lake view
