We will be adding more pictures soon but we can assure you that our rooms for rent are spacious, comfortable and furnished. In the event that you have your own furniture you would like to use we will gladly remove our furnishings from the room of your choice.

We make effort to make sure any issues are dealt with quickly. We will try to arrange for any repair as soon as possible to keep our accommodations in top notch shape. We are local landlords with years of experience in student accommodation rentals. This means that we can be at the house when you need us for repair or maybe just locked keys, it happens to everyone.









  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    We had a very good 1 night spent at Walter’s place. Walter was very attentive to our needs and the overall experience was well-organized. Very we-situated for McMaster students.

    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 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.

  • Everything as expected, very nice landlord. Located close to McMaster University and public transportation.
    Stefan B, Austria, 2012
    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
    Walter is a great host. He’s very friendly and helpful (he even picked me up from the train station when I couldn’t figure out the transport in Hamilton ;), and the place was very nice and really close to McMaster. Fully recommended!

    Great landlord, readily available when needed.
    Marieke, Netherlands, 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.
    Luke, Brampton, 2012
    The listing description was accurate, the room I stayed in was in the basement with bathroom & kitchen. Although the room is in the basement, it is nice & clean. I arrived when Walter wasn’t there but he made sure I knew how to get to place, and left keys for me. Next day he stopped by and made sure I had everything I needed to enjoy my stay.
    Alena, Russia, 2015
    Landlord is very nice and helpful. I will definitely consider staying with this accommodation in the future.
