  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

  • 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.
    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
    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
    Pros: 1. The house is very close to McMaster and I was able to walk to work in under 10 mins. 2. Good wifi reception. 3. Walter was very nice and friendly and checked in to see if I needed anything. 4. The price was reasonable. 5. Access to laundry facilities …
    Roxanne, South Africa, 2016
    The house is near the university, easy to find, and clean.
    Claudia, Italy, 2014
    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
    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
    Exactly as described, location was good, shopping mall and McMaster U in walk distance, library and theatre is 10 minutes if ride bike.
