“Comfortable 'home' away from home”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I opted to stay here and take 30-min bus rides to UWaterloo campus, instead of staying at over-priced residences. The space inside the house is beautiful, quiet and comfortable. The spacious common area was great for meeting other guests while cooking or having breakfast. Shopping and bus stops were a few minutes away by walk, and I really enjoyed just being able to relax without having to worry about bringing any kitchenware, timing of the breakfast, etc. I especially enjoyed early mornings in the quiet dining area as I prepared for training and enjoyed light breakfast.

The staff responses by email were very prompt, all my needs were met. First time staying in this kind of setting, I enjoyed it a lot. Anna has been very supportive and professional.

Thank you!

We rented an entire house from Boardwalk homes for our girls volleyball team and some parents. We had 18 sleep comfortably throughout the house. Beds were comfortable with lots of pillows and duvets/comforters. Ample space to hang out along with lots of bathrooms....and we were all females! Kitchen was large with so much storage for food etc. There are two fridges to store lots of food as well. They have thought of everything...they even had bins so our girls could put their own food in them. While planning our stay, Erin was very patient and explained everything regarding the house layout and answered my many many many emails!
They shared information re: what to do, where to go, recommended eating spots. The home is really nice and modern and clean. The place is close to shopping and restaurants. The girls could walk to Dairy Queen which was a bonus! I can speak for everyone that we all felt very comfortable and at home. We had a great weekend stay in Waterloo! I would definitely consider renting from Boardwalk homes again for sports teams and also for a scrapbooking venue.

Room Tip: Rent the whole house!

My two brothers and I stayed at the boardwalk home guest house in Waterloo with our Mom, who was celebrating her 80th birthday. We were looking for something that felt more like a home than a hotel and this place really fit the bill.

The folks at Boardwalk were very accommodating and arranged it so that our rooms were all on the same level in this large, modern home. My Mom got to sleep in a King Sized bed for the first time in our life, and we had access to three bathrooms between four of us. The home has a large kitchen, living room and dining room which made it very enjoyable to have breakfast together in the morning.

The guest house is really nice, confortable and functional for either a short or a long stay. The rooms are welcoming. You can really feel as it is your house for a few days...

The only thing is that it is a bit far from the downtown. But a bus station is near.

It has been a pleasure to stay here.

Renting with boardwalk homes was the best choice for our curling team! We had 8 adults and 2 babies stay for over a week in one of their full homes. There was plenty of room for all of us and enough floors and doors to make it very sound proof. There are spaces to be all together in the home but also areas to escape for some alone time. Staying together and eating nutritious homemade meals was a HUGE bonus for our team. The kitchen area is beautiful with lots of storage. The home is located in quiet neighbourhood but very close to shopping and necessities. The owners went above and beyond for us ensuring that we had everything we needed. It is modernly decorated but has a cozy home feeling as well. The only drawback was that there wasn't a bathtub in the home we stayed in for the babies - but we worked around it with an inflatable tub from Walmart. We would stay there again in a heartbeat! I think it gave our team a huge edge in terms of competing for the week. Thanks Again Boardwalk Homes!

We have family in the Kitchener-Waterloo area and were looking for somewhere to stay where our dog would be welcome. Why looking for such a location I stumbled across Boardwalk Homes.
Our initial communications were by email with Erin who explained the properties and rates. We chose to stay in one of the suites as we could have the dog there. A week or so before we travelled Erin emailed to ask if we would mind staying in the large house instead.....which was a no brainer in my book!!
The house was gorgeous, spaceous and clean.
The neighborhood is still under development (as of July 2012) and is thus a little lacking in ambience, landscaping and privacy but easy walking to local parks for dog walking and super convenient to shops.
The property itself had all the modern conveniences, wifi, 4 floors, with multiple nooks and sitting areas, a small business center with printing facilities and washer and drier with complimentary laundry soap.
A housekeeper came to clean twice during our four night stay. We had an issue with the cable television and Erin was very swift to respond to an email to address the problem and then followed up to assure satisfaction.

I will most certainly stay at Boardwalk Homes on subsequent trips to Kitchener-Waterloo and recommend it to others.

Very nice place to stay for a couple of days, it is quiet and comfortable, located in calm area.
Anything you need you can find it in the plaza near to this home. It is a home consists of many rooms. The kitchen and the living area in the main floor is well furnished, we can all what you need. However, it is a little far from the downtown (kitchener or waterloo), you can take the bus which is ok.
