  • I had a great time at Walter’s. I had a nice room with a single bed. Although certain spaces were shared, it felt very private. Walter went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable.

    The room was perfect for my needs — a single bed, a usable desk, closet space with some hangers, a decent shower, and nice kitchen area with plenty of fridge space.

    Once again, thank you very much for everything you did during our stay, the place really was spectacular. I have seen enough places in the area and your house is by far the best out there! Keep up the great work!

    Walter is a very nice person and great landlord. Everything was well explained and as said. Location is perfect if you need to be close from McMaster University.

    Walter was great and very helpful with everything. I was visiting McMaster University so the location was perfect! Check in and check out was easy and the room was clean.

    My stay with Walter had been very pleasant. The room, kitchen and common area is as described, clean, with all the necessities and Walter was always within reach to answer any questions. The public transit bus stop is within a minute walking distance outside his home. The surrounding area has restaurants, a bar, a convenience store and a coffee shop. I would definitely stay with Walter again.

    165 Emerson is a great house with a fabulous landlord. He’s an extremely approachable man who does not hesitate to solve any of your problems during your stay. I was very pleased with his response time when there was a problem. The house was extremely clean during my first move in which to me was a big thumbs up. The price is fair for the location of the house and amenities available nearby. Overall, it was a very nice experience.

    I enjoyed my stay in 165 Emerson. I felt that landlord did a great job in maintaining the place and attending to tenants’ needs when required. The house was very nicely done, and I think overall it was a very good setting.

    A great landlord, always asks if we need anything, quick to respond to our requests, and did a great job renovating the house. Overall a fantastic experience at 165 Emerson.
    Michael, Ottawa, 2013
    Great location for McMaster. Walter was very helpful and was there to provide keys and answer questions for a late arrival. Parking worked out well in the driveway. All the basics were well provided for. The other tenants were quiet and everything went smoothly. Shower was great. Would stay there again.
    Scott, Michigan, 2016
    Pros: 1. The house is very close to McMaster and I was able to walk to work in under 10 mins. 2. Good wifi reception. 3. Walter was very nice and friendly and checked in to see if I needed anything. 4. The price was reasonable. 5. Access to laundry facilities …
    Roxanne, South Africa, 2016
    Had an amazing time staying at Walter’s place. The location was perfect as it was walking distance from McMaster University. The bus stop outside also goes to downtown, so going downtown was a breeze. The room I stayed in had an office chair, a fan, a bed, a closet and a desk. Basically everything that I needed. Would definitely come back again!
    Tony, Montreal, 2014
    The house is bigger than it looks on the outside, it has 8 bedrooms spread over 2 floors (each floor has its own bathroom and kitchen). I believe the rooms on the main floor are a bit more expensive but I would say its definitely worth it. My room was nice, enough space and view on the back yard. I also appreciated was the house’s location: if you’re studying at McMaster you can easily walk to campus or otherwise take the bus that stops right before the front door. Hamilton’s city center is also close by bus. Another plus is the convenience store that opened just across the street before I left — great people and yummy subs!

    Steve C, Toronto, 2012
    I am Luke. I have lived happily at 165 Emerson Street for about 8 months while studying at Mc Master University. My experience there was definitely positive. Walter was our landlord. He treats everyone with respects and addresses every concern quickly.
    I wish success to all new tenants.
