About our home

Our home is a comfortable 4-bedroom 2-story with a large kitchen and a bright living/dining room. The master bedroom has a queen bed. The 2nd bedroom has a single bed. The 3rd bedroom has a double futon. There is a 4th bedroom which is currently equipped as an office & sewing room. The basement is finished and has a large playroom / recreation area. We have an attached garage with parking in the garage and on the driveway. The real gem about our house is the location. Our property backs onto a large park and schoolyard with tennis courts, splash-pad, playground, sand-pit, swings & climbers. A fantastic place for children.

More about us

  1. We are a couple, Sarah and Tom, who both teach at the same middle school. Sarah teaches design and technology integration and Tom teaches science and design. We have a 12-year-old son, Alex. We have always enjoyed travelling and have had the opportunity to see much of the world during our summers.

  2. We exchanged our home (and Sarah's job) with an Australian teacher in 2006 and did a home exchange to Australia in 2011. We did a home exchange in Rennes, France in 2015 and to Amsterdam in 2017. We look forward to exchanging homes around the world.

  3. We particularly enjoy traveling and living as part of a community rather than as tourists. There is so much more to experience this way. We are flexible in our destinations, but unfortunately (since we are teachers) our timing is restricted to July and the first half of August each year. We look forward to helping you experience all Toronto and Ontario have to offer. Let's discuss options!

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We live in a very multicultural residential area with a school and large park behind the house. We are a 30 minute drive from the international airport and 20 minutes from downtown. Local transit is easily accessible. Local and large grocery stores are nearby and several large shopping malls are an easy drive. Some of the best dining and entertainment in the world can be found downtown. We are very close to the main highways that take you east to Ottawa and all that the capital has to offer (4.5 hours), north to Algonquin Park with wonderful hiking, canoeing and camping (3 hours), and west to Niagara Falls and the US border (1.5 hours).
