About Judy Weinberg

As a native Torontonian, I'm a great resource of what the city and surrounding areas have to offer. I'm an independent graphic designer and enjoy the ability to work remotely while visiting friends and traveling. The neighborhood offers such diversity in terms of restaurants, activities, green spaces and great boutique shopping and services! I'm an avid gardener and take great pride in my personal green space.

Lovely home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, clean, well lit, and well decorated home was perfect for our family! We had everything we needed (well stocked kitchen!) in a very convenient location, a few minute walking distance to good restaurants and shops. We got around using Uber/Taxi with no problem going to places. We felt at home and comfortable! Judy paid attention to details for our comfort, turning on the heater for the house before we arrived, which made us feel at home right away, walking into the warm cozy house! We would love to stay again when we visit Toronto next time.

Very comfortable clean well decorated home.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. A streetcar a block away takes you to the subway station. We got around fairly easily without a car. The sunny patio was an added bonus.

This was my first Home Away stay and it was fantastic. I will stay at this home on all my trips to Toronto.

I never need to stay at The Royal York again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

It was overall a great experience. Given the choice of staying at a hotel or Judy’s place. I’d pick Judy’s place any day. I'd definitely stay there again next time I'm in Toronto.

Judy is very responsive and easy to work with – from the first inquiry to getting the reservations set up, to when I need help on how to light up the BBQ grill on a Sunday afternoon. Backyard is lovely, full of blooms and colors!

The actual property is even better than seen in the pictures -- immaculate, well appointed, and cozy, and have all the comfort of a home. It is situated on a quaint street in a quiet yet convenient neighborhood. Restaurants, bakeries, local shops and Starbucks around the corner, streetcar very close by, and Loblaws a few block away. Drive to downtown in 10-15 minutes.

My family and I stayed at Judy’s place for 2 weeks. It was a home away from home for us. Highly recommend Judy’s place if you are visiting Toronto.

Wonderful home in Toronto

  • 5 of 5

Home was wonderful and very comfortable. Quiet neighborhood near trolley and bus stops. Excellent restaurants, bakery, and more within 1 km. Folks in the area very hospitable. We would certainly stay there again if available when we next visit Toronto.
