    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!

    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.
    Kat, Ontario, 2016
    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.

    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.

    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.
    Jeremy, Singapore, 2012
    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.

    I am Thierry; a student at the Mc Master campus, I had lived at 165 Emerson street from September 2011 to April 2013 and loved every minute of my stay at this location. Walter, the landlord, is a very polite man and he makes himself available to the tenants. When his help is needed, he takes immediate actions. Added to the convenience of being located near the University, 165 Emerson is located in a nice neighborhood, and the house’s atmosphere feels like home. I wish all new tenants to have the same fun and success with their studies that I had while living at 165 Emerson.
    Thierry, Hamilton, 2013
    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
    Ample appliances, furniture & storage space; clean & newly renovated; and a great location makes 165 Emerson an ideal place for short or long-term stays. The landowner was very friendly and accommodating, and was always looking for ways to improve the place.
    Priscilla, BC, 2012
    Great landlord, readily available when needed.
