About this listing

My house is a century home loaded with charm and character. It's right in the downtown core, so very close to the Farmer's Market, shops and restaurants, main bus lines and many tech companies, and an easy bus ride to Waterloo, the universities and college. There is another room available in the house, so you may be sharing the house with two other guests.
In your room there is a comfortable bed, a desk, a small closet and shelves for your things. Street parking is available from April - Nov.

The space

Your private room is on the second floor of my century home. It has hardwood floors and plenty of charm.

Guest access

In addition to the private room, you'll have shared access to my kitchen, living room and dining room, as well as one full bathroom and a powder room. You're also welcome to enjoy your morning coffee (or perhaps an evening glass of wine), on either the front porch, or the second floor balcony.

Interaction with guests

I'll be there to greet you and get you acquainted with my home, and my dog, Cinna. I'll do my best to be around during your stay, and at the very least will always be available to answer questions via cell phone. I'm happy to provide you with tips for great restaurants or things to see in the area, or to just let you enjoy the peace and quiet of the neighbourhood.

Other things to note

My dog will stay at home during the day while I am at work, but she generally just sleeps or keeps watch for birds and squirrels out the windows.

Had a great stay over the weekend at Megan's. The house is very warm and welcoming, I loved the decor and plants. The location was close walking and driving distance to everywhere I needed to go. Will definitely stay again and/or recommend to friends or family staying in Kitchener.

I enjoyed my stay at Megan's. I was there 3 nights, the neighbours were a bit loud upstairs above the room at times but nothing terrible. Also ran out of toilet paper and was none in the bathroom to replace with so had to bring Kleenex in with me. Megan and her dog are friendly. I was intimidated by the cleanliness a bit! But better than dirty! Overall I had a good stay & was a great price Megan's home is beautiful and well kept.

Response from Megan:
Thanks for your feedback, Paige. I wish you had let me know you felt the guests upstairs were being noisy - I didn't notice anything, but if you had told me, I would have dealt with it immediately, just as I did when you let me know one of the two bathrooms had run out of toilet paper.

I'm a high school French teacher. I've owned my house for three years, during which I've had long term tenants for a year or more at a time. Now I'm ready to move on to occasional guests through AirBnB. I have many years of experience in the service industry, and am happy to put everything I've learned into providing you with a warm and welcoming place to stay - your home away from home.
I was fortunate enough to be able to live in France, and travel throughout Europe, during University, and then I lived in South Korea, and traveled throughout Asia in my twenties. Some highlights were learning to ski in the Alps, doing cartwheels on the Great Wall of China, and most recently, sailing in the Adriatic Sea. I love to cook and bake, and get dirty in my garden. I'm involved in my local community, and would love to be able to tell you all about it.
