  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
