The space

We would look forward to welcoming you to come stay in the basement apartment of our home.

We are professors and so we usually rent the apartment to graduate students during the academic year. But we have decided to give AirBnB a try for the coming months.

The apartment would best suit one or two people, but in a pinch it can sleep up to four people (two in the bedroom, two on the futon couch).

Apartment layout and amenities:
- basement apartment; 722 square feet
- separate entrance
- washer and dryer
- bathroom with shower (no bathtub)
- eat-in kitchen with full-sized fridge and range, plus microwave, coffee maker, toaster, kettle and most kitchen things you'll need (if you are missing something you need, please just ask)
- one (small) bedroom with double bed
- living room (with futon couch)
- wifi
- professionally cleaned prior to each visit, with fresh linen provided

Guest access

We are happy to share our large back deck with BBQ during your stay.

Interaction with guests

We respect the privacy of guests but we are always happy to chat if you'd like advice on things to do and see. We do our best to make sure everyone is comfortable.

We live in a very quiet neighbourhood close to all good things in Kitchener. We are 2 blocks from the amazing Kitchener Farmers' Market and very close to the downtown's Centre in the Square, the Aud, Kichener Public Library's beautifully renovated Main Branch, Victoria Park, the Iron Horse Trail, the GO and Via Train Stations, and many other sites and restaurants. Waterloo's downtown (5 km away) and St. Jacob's (11 km away) are also fairly close by.

We provide a detailed guidebook of all the local amenities, restaurants, cafes, and things to do (theatres, parks, markets, etc.).

Location: the nearest major intersection is Frederick Street & Lancaster Street East in Kitchener.

A really great, comfy place to stay while in Kitchener. I would have no problem staying here again. Angela was very accommodating with the extra requests we made and really went above with suggesting places to go and local events to check out while we were in town. The suite was comfortable (a bit low ceilings in places) and had all the amenities we needed. Thanks!!!
