Our 2019-2020 guests, the principal of a private school has this to say about his international school students and supervisors 4 months stay. “This property was used as a short-term student accommodation for international students attending a local private school. Not only was it in walking distance of the school, but students found that grocery stores, restaurants, shops, and the region's largest shopping mall are all within a comfortable and convenient walking distance. Tom and Jenniffer were considerate and attentive to the students' needs upon arrival in Canada - making sure they had beds already made and linens provided, as well as welcome packages with Canadian goods such as maple syrup. They were extremely flexible and accommodating, even converting the usual office/dining room into an additional bedroom upon request. The house is tastefully decorated and furnished, with a fully equipped kitchen, which is of the utmost convenience for those who are looking for a short-term living situation and do not have the means to self-furnish. With true regrets, our students were unable to stay longer. I highly recommend this property to any professionals or small families looking for a suitable accommodation in St. Catharines. Thank you to Tom and Jenniffer for helping to make last term's stay enjoyable.” Our 2018-2019 guests, a Professor, husband and daughter have this to say about their stay; “It is a wonderful house. Well-Maintained, furnished and has everything. Literally, EVERYTHING! We moved-in and do not have to worry about anything. The house decorated with taste, which adds a value to stay. Another plus is that the house comes with a large backyard, a nice gazebo and a cozy mudroom for use. The house is in a great location. Close to shopping mall, supermarkets, and Brock University. The bus stop is right on the corner, it is very convenient to go anywhere even without a car. Tom and Jenniffer are the best landlords we have ever met. Very Friendly, generous and responsive. With their help, we get to know the surroundings in a short time. We enjoyed every moment while staying in this house. Highly recommend it to anyone who needs a place in St. Catharines.” Our 2017-2018 guests, a Professor and wife have this to say about their one year stay; “The house is charming, a perfect balance of history and convenience. It has wooden floors and a traditional staircase, but the interior has been updated and modernized. The décor is a mixture of cosy and modern… two upstairs bedrooms that add to the already-appealing atmosphere of the house. The kitchen especially is a joy because of its size and arrangement. With an abundance of cabinets for storage, the kitchen has every cooking utensil and cookware anyone could imagine, even a food processor. There is ample parking for two cars and a gazebo for use in the summer to enjoy the backyard area. A clothesline is available for laundry and there is a grill for outdoor use. We have enjoyed our stay here enormously and recommend it to anyone who needs a place in St. Catharines. Tom and Jenniffer have been superb and gracious landlords, immediately responsive to the few things that have needed attention during our stay."
