This property has been conditioned to have everything a person needs to live in
- english, spanish, Dutch (understands a little)
As a traveler myself I have been hosted by many amazing people in the world, who like me enjoy meeting new people. At the same time, I know how important is it to give people enough space so that you can feel at home. I love going to the movies with my daughter, cooking meals for others, and my favorite destination are the cruise ships no matter where they go as long as there is "exploring" involved. I am a photographer, interpreter, translator, teacher, chef, and a published author (of course, in Spanish, which is my first language). I hope to welcome you soon here, in Kingston!
Susana purchased this House in 2014
Why Susana chose Kingston
Three years ago, when my daughter came to study at Queens University, I decided to look for a property that could be convenient for her to live in. In my daughter's words:" I have had the most happy three years of my life in this home". It's size is very convenient, not too big, not too small. It has all the amenities necessary to have a good live. My daughter is now for work reasons living somewhere else, and I have decided that this home could be ideal for a couple of Graduate students coming to Kingston to do a Masters Degree, or a PHD, or International Exchange Students. I also believe it is ideal for visitors to Kingston, because of its location. It is not downtown but besides it.
What makes this House unique
The house itself is besides and in front of a park. It is in a very quiet neighborhood so that is you are coming to Kingston to study makes it ideal. It's easy access to grocery stores, cafes, and libraries, or if you like nature, with conservation areas, makes it a place that you will not find downtown. In the summer a bicycle can be rented or bring your own, and to ride it everywhere is beautiful. The house is cozy, and it has a touch of good taste everywhere. The deck in the back makes it ideal to seat down and enjoy your meals in the outside table. There is a living room with wonderful movies, and also high speed internet in case you have access to Netflix. Bedrooms have carpet, and everything is new as it was just renovated.

A perfect "home away from home"!
The home was in excellent condition, clean and well furnished. Susana was there to greet us when we arrived and showed us around the home. She was also very quick to respond to questions and checked with us to see how we were doing during our stay. We would definitely consider staying here again if we return to Kingston for another visit in the future.
Great house in Kingston
The house seems fairly new, was super clean, in a nice quiet residential neighbourhood. Check in and check out were easy. Susana was easy to communicate with and very responsive. A washer/drier in the house would be a nice addition to support longer term stays. Another minor inconvenience was that the central heat/Air conditioning thermostat was in a lock box. The owner was very accommodating about asking us if we thought the temperature was ok on arrival, or if we thought it would need to be adjusted and that she would come right over. Some type of more convenient setup would be something to consider.
Thank you for your review Bill. Just for clarification there is a washer and dryer for longer stays, in the basement of the house. It is available for stays of two weeks or more. And as for the air conditioner, as an owner it is my prerrogative to protect my property. The thermostat in combination with the air conditioner works better setting them up steady at one temperature. I am sorry that you did not wanted me setting it up after I asked you several times during your 5 nights stay. In an overall, I really hope you had a good and relax stay, as I truly work very hard to ensure that my guests are comfortable and happy.
Best regards and all the best to you and your family always.
Clean and comfortable.
Perfect for what we needed. We all had a much nicer time then trying to hang out in two separate hotel rooms. House is clean and well kept. It was also less than even lower end hotel rates. Great deal!
Home away from home!
Susana did a wonderful job accomodating my family! Her house was so comfortable and homey! Nice and close to downtown and main attractions! Susana went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. Would definitely stay here again!!
It was pleasure to have you , your sister and parents at the property. I am glad everything was to your expectations and that you had a great time here. Thanks for taking good care of everything in the house. Come back again anytime !
