  • 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.

    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!

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
