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.

So many conscientious touches; Megan clearly has the guest in mind. And what a treat to meet her wise dog, Cinna, named for a Shakespeare character. Wish it had been warm enough to spend time on the porch, but nonetheless enjoyed the location -- in a part of Kitchener I haven't explored before. The home is near downtown but the street was very quiet while I was there. The frequent #7 bus is close, as will be a new light rail stop before long.

Megan's place was amazing. The house is beaitufully decorated and everything you need is there. Megan set aside a space in the fridge and the cupboards and said I could use the stuff in the kitchen. The bed was A-MAZING, so comfy and lots of pillows (which I appreciate). Hairdryer and towels were provided, the shower is fantastic. Megan's dog, Cinna, is super friendly and quiet. Megan was usually home in the evenings when I was home - but she was also easy to get hold of through AirBnB if I needed anything. I highly recommend this place to stay in, the location is great and the place is too! :) Thank you Megan!!

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'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.
