Looking to Rent


Wanted in Ontario Canada

Listing #142860

Home wanted for postdoc and family

Hi all!
We are relocating from the USA to Toronto in February 2021 and we need a place to quarantine and settle in while we find our permanent home.

My husband got a postdoc position at University of Toronto Scarborough so we'd like to be near campus.

We are a family of 4 with two little girls (aged 2 and 5). No pets. Non smokers.

We are looking for a furnished home to spend 4-6 weeks upon arrival.

We would like the whole place to ourselves. No shared rooms or utilities with other tenants. And not a basement unit.
We will be working from home so we need 2 bedrooms + office or 3 bedrooms.
Ideally with a backyard for the girls (and us!) to release some energy during isolation.

We will be in strict quarantine for the first 2 weeks. We are very careful about exposure to the virus but we will be going through a flight and airports, so please make sure you are comfortable with hosting a family who has just been through a somewhat higher risk of exposure. Ideally we can arrange some type of socially distanced check in.

In summary we're looking for:
-Date: mid February-mid March
-Length: short term 4-6 weeks
-Furnished
-2/3 bedrooms
-no shared rooms or utilities with other tenants
-not a basement unit
-kid friendly
-backyard


If you think your place could suit our needs please email me.
Thank you and stay safe,
Marisa
