When not rented out full time, StudioBe is an Urban Retreat Centre & Guesthouse offering workshops, events and overnight accommodation. It also functions as a part-time professional workspace for Healers and Artists.
StudioBe Guest House is a very unique space, dedicated to assisting people on their journey, whatever that may be and wherever that may take them.
We take your needs and suggestions very seriously and we regularly make adjustments and upgrade the space according to the feedback we receive from our guests.
StudioBe is proud to be the choice of many guests who visit Toronto for a variety of reasons, such as attending local workshops (yoga is very popular around here), celebrating anniversaries or visiting terminally ill friends. In all of these cases, we endeavour to help make your stay as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Please let us know if you have any special needs... from personal supplies, to stocking the fridge with your favourite food, to transportation, to sending flowers or buying gifts, to tickets to events... we will do our best to accommodate you in any way we can.
PLEASE SEND ME A BRIEF NOTE BEFORE YOU BOOK TO CONFIRM AVAILABILITY.
StudioBe is also available to rent out for your special event. We have hosted fitness, yoga and massage workshops, art shows, house concerts, vision boarding parties, anniversary and birthday parties, adult slumber parties, girls weekends... If you can envision it, we can accommodate you!
We can accommodate up to 8 overnight guests in 3 upstairs bedrooms, each with queen sized beds, and dorm-style, in "The Cave Studio" where there are two futon-style mattresses in an open-concept, yet cozy space. There is one, shared, 3 piece washroom on the 2nd floor, a powder room on the main floor and another 3 piece washroom in the basement studio area.
The vibe of StudioBe is meant to be very community oriented, casual and welcoming. Simply spending time in the energy here will re-connect you with your authentic self.
You can make use of the many resources we have on hand here and in the Riverdale community, which is well known for being very artistic, holistic and health-oriented.
We hope you will come and share the experience of StudioBe. There's nothing else like it in Toronto.

I am a counsellor, specializing in Personal Growth, Spirituality, Self-Love & Relationships. I am also a licensed Ontario Wedding Officiant, writer, mentor and speaker. StudioBe is where I see clients, write my weekly "Process Of Illumination" blog and do my workshops. I am happy to offer StudioBe as a guest house for quiet, respectful overnight visitors who are looking for comfort and privacy.
If we have time to sit and chat, you will be encouraged to be adventurous, creative, practice Self-Love and "Be You", while you're here.
I love to travel, so when I am out of town, I offer StudioBe as an entire, self-contained household for longer terms stays. This means that I may not be able to meet you while you are here. I will, however, make sure you are in good hands with a friend, neighbour or family member. My family and I live only 2 blocks from StudioBe so If you need anything, one of us is just a text away.
The house is used by the community and other artists, healers and holistic professionals for meetings and workshops form time to time. You may want to plan your stay around some of the interesting events we have planned, plan yourt own event at StudioBe or just come when it's convenient and let the universe decide!
We look forward to having you stop at StudioBe on your journey. Even if you aren't able to stay with us, please drop by and say hi!
At StudioBe, we cultivate an atmosphere of mutual respect and community. You are encouraged to take care of yourself and your needs while keeping in mind the needs of others and participating in keeping our space clean and clutter-free. While StudioBe is a wonderful community space, entertaining your guests anywhere on the property is not permitted at any time. We also ask that you do not smoke, play loud music or disturb the peace in any way. Doing so will require us or our property manager (located in the house next door) to take appropriate action.
Travelling is my passion and I am eager to explore all the corners of the planet. I have had the pleasure of staying with several AirBnB hosts on trips to England, Ireland, Spain, Greece, Vancouver and all over Ontario. From 2014-2016 I was also an AirBnB Superhost for a small Urban Retreat & Guesthouse I owned in Toronto called StudioBe. Unfortunately, I recently sold that property but I hope to resume hosting again on a smaller scale in my home at some point in the future. Whether as a guest or as a host, I absolutely love the experience and diversity of the people I meet and homes that I have stayed in.
As a licensed Ontario Wedding Officiant and a Lifecycle Counsellor/Educator, I often travel for weddings, speaking engagements and to facilitate workshops and retreats. I look forward to meeting many new friends on my future journeys. Maybe you will be one of them!
