We have just renovated our home so that it now includes a fully furnished, separate 2 bedroom apartment with private entrance. The unit is located close to parks, restaurants, shopping, walking trails, arts & culture, the expressway & 10 mins from both Downtown Kitchener and Uptown Waterloo where in the summer there are outdoor festivals every weekend. Completely new kitchen & bathroom, & fully equippped (fridge, stove, microwave, washer, dryer, dishwasher), a gas fireplace, wi-fi & cable TV.
Our unit is comfortable and well-equipped. Previous guests tell us that they were surprised at how well outfitted it is. You will also have access to a nice patio in the warm weather.
If you are looking for somewhere with working space, there is a desk. If you are a young family, we have a travel bed and highchair, and a folding single bed is available if you need it.
The entrance to the unit is on the side of the house, off the patio. Guests will have the use of their own kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms and a living room. The unit has its own washer and dryer and the kitchen is fully equipped.
Linens are provided.
Interaction with guests
We live in the adjacent unit, so we will be available should a problem occur.
- Guests will strip the beds and put sheets in washer before leaving. (Host will dry sheets & remake beds for the next occupant.)
- Guests will tie up garbage & recycling and place these outside at the end of their stay, or in the case of a longer term rental, will place them outside on Sunday nightsthe night before scheduled garbage/recycling collection.
We have renovated our home so that it now includes a fully furnished and legal two-bedroom unit in Kitchener, Ontario. The unit has its own washer/dryer and a fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher and built-in microwave.
We live upstairs, along with our two friendly - once they have met you - pooches, one large and one small. We have lived in Kitchener for 20 years and previously lived in Montreal. We have travelled a great deal and lived in many different countries, but Waterloo Region (Kitchener, Cambridge, Waterloo and our townships) are home.
We are heavily involved in the community and would be pleased to share our knowledge of places to visit. The region has unique features: We have a very vibrant tech sector with start-up accelerators and well-established corporations (, D2L, Open Text, etc...) and 10 minutes from Uptown Waterloo you'll be out in Mennonite country, where many Old Order Mennonite farms have no electricity and all the farming is still done with horses and wagons. On Mondays (wash day), a drive out to the country will give you a view of clotheslines full of all sizes of overalls and long dresses for very large families - all washed by hand.
When you arrive for your rental period, you will find a brand new, clean and equipped unit with two bedrooms (one has a double bed and the other a queen bed), towels, sheets, extra pillows, dishes, utensils, etc... You will have a separate entrance off a lovely patio which in the summer will be set-up with patio furniture.
We really look forward to meeting our guests and to sharing information about this wonderful community.
