Charming host, house and neighbourhood. Communications were very quick and friendly and made it easy to decide to stay here. Nigel made me feel very welcome and right at home. Cedar the dog is also very welcoming and well behaved. The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Everything was exactly as pictured in the photos and description of the accommodation.
I would definitely stay here again and fully recommend it to anyone visiting downtown Guelph or the University of Guelph campus.
Spent a great weekend in the presence of some wonderful hosts-both human and canine! Room was cozy and comfortable. Jamie and Nigel are friendly, kind, considerate and made me feel very welcome in their home. Location was perfect, picturesque and so close to downtown. I will be staying there again!
This was a lovely, friendly, and comfortable home complete with Cedar, the cutest doggie ever. Nigel was incredibly nice, gave me directions to a great cafe, and I even saw the merganser ducks he described on the little river near their house. Thanks for a great stay!
Nigel and Jamie were great hosts and Cedar was most welcoming. I will be going back in a couple of weeks and would definitely recommend this place.
The hosts, the space, and the location are all wonderful. Nigel and Jamie are extremely welcoming people. A great place to stay
Nigel and Jamie were such great hosts. We did a last minute trip to Guelph and they had the room ready within hours. The house is absolutely gorgeous and cosy. We wanted to take Cedar (the chocolate lab) with us but didn't.
We are definitely going to try to stay here again :)
A home with a warm heart. Jamie and Nigel were excellent hosts and Cedar was a wonderful greeter at the door. The room is very comfortable and the desk is an extra bonus for anyone travelling for business. Just steps away from Downtown. They were a great first experience on AirBNB.
Jamie and Nigel have also both worked and traveled internationally including places like Africa, China, Mexico, and Australia. They enjoy a healthy lifestyle, supporting local agriculture, gardening, cooking, participating in outdoor activities year round (hiking, canoeing, camping, x-country skiing), and spending time with their three year old chocolate lab Cedar.
Nigel works for a local conservation authority and in this position he prepares watershed studies and implements ecological restoration projects.
Jamie works for the City of Mississauga and he coordinates naturalization and restoration projects on City-owned land and engages local community groups to volunteer on these projects.
