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.”
