About this listing
Four-poster bed with new mattress and pillows in cosy room in spacious art- and book-filled house conveniently located on the border between Kitchener and Waterloo. Private three-piece bath. Parking and free WIFI. Shared kitchen. Access to garden.
Comfortable double bed, with a brand new mattress and pillows, in private room in spacious house in a quiet neighbourhood.
Private bathroom (three-piece, with great reading material) with shared use of rest of house (kitchen, living room and garden in nice weather, although for the most part it would be your own private use of the living areas as I have my own suite with full bath and sitting area in the basement). No dishwasher.
The house itself is light and airy with wooden floors and oriental carpets, filled with lots of artwork, plants and books (which you are welcome to borrow while you're here).
No cable TV , but wifi. Alll linens provided.
Very close to BOTH downtown Kitchener and Waterloo. (The house is located pretty well at the boundary between the two cities.)
Parking for one car and lots of good public transit nearby with direct bus lines to both universities.
This is a smoke-free environment.
I am happy to help you find places to visit or to dine out at. We have some pretty great restaurants here. I look forward to hearing from you!
Full disclosure: there is another apartment on the upper two levels of the house with one tenant, who can sometimes be heard -- so I can't promise perfect silence all the time. Also I am a shift worker, so sometimes must do night shifts, which are not the best times to visit. But drop me a line and hopefully we can work something out.
Guests have access to everything on the main floor, the backyard and laundry in the basement if required.
Interaction with Guests
I try to make my guests comfortable, but then will give them some privacy, as I have my own spaces within the house.
It's a very residential neighbourhood, with a community centre and park very nearby. There is also a Giant Tiger a block away, which is convenient for groceries and necessities.
Public transit is extremely convenient with two different bus lines minutes away. Direct access by bus to both universities. Parking is including with listing.
Other Things to Note
All linens provided as well as soap, shampoo and a toothbrush if you need it! I also provide tea or coffee. I am happy to help with restaurant and tourist recommendations.
Basically just mutual respect. A tip sheet will be provided when you arrive.
