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.









  • 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.

    Nice house very close to McMaster University.

    Room is exactly what was advertised and close to McMaster campus!

    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.

    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!
    Ray, Toronto, 2012
    Nice bed and plenty of space in the room. Walter was very friendly and helpful.
    Erik V, Netherlands, 2012
    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.

    Good location. Nice room!
    William, Waterloo, 2015
    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.

  • We think our stay at 165 Emerson Street was perfect. There was a lot of details that made our life easier. There was no problem regarding humidity and insulation. It was clean, and we really enjoyed life there.
    Emeric, Laurene & Remy, France, 2013
    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!
    Jorine, Netherlands, 2013
    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.
    Carl, USA, 2014
    Everything as expected, very nice landlord. Located close to McMaster University and public transportation.
    Stefan B, Austria, 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
    Walter was very friendly and accommodating during our stay in Hamilton.
    Lauren, Niagara Falls NY, 2014
    Great landlord, readily available when needed.
    Marieke, Netherlands, 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
    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.

    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.
