I couldn't have asked for more in terms of privacy, independence, and being made to feel welcome. The space is lovely, has character, and it is clear that Winona cares about those staying at her house. The location is great, very close to the beach, with some fantastic nearby restaurants and bars. The neighbourhood is relaxed and doesn't feel like you are in the middle of a big city like Toronto. Transit is convenient, whether by bus along Queen Street or up Woodbine Avenue to the subway if you need to get across town a little more quickly. The studio has also has a separate entrance, which is great for autonomy and the occasional late night out on the town. I arrived on Canada Day and was able to head back at my own leisure without worrying about disturbing her. I would recommend it to anyone.
