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.

    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!

    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.

    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 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.

    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!

    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.

    The house is near the university, easy to find, and clean.

    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.

    Walter was very helpful. Everything was taken care of and very convenient.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at 165 Emerson during the summer of 2015. The house was clean and in good shape and it was nice to have access to a backyard as well. The landlord was friendly and helpful and the neighborhood was safe and close to necessary amenities.
