The Neighbourhood

Locke Street literally steps away and is a trendy urban area, home to many of Hamilton's most charming shops and a variety of great restaurants! A huge children's playground is just blocks away, tennis anyone? Hamilton Tennis Club is also around the corner. With grocery stores, cute coffee shops, pubs and pizza places, the Beer store and the LCBO all within walking distance - you don't have to get in your car.

The famous Niagara Escarpment offers outdoor enthusiasts ample adventure, with great walking and biking trails, and close by you'll also find the artsy James St N. neighbourhood. Stroll over to a bar in Hess Village for a lively night of music and remember that Hamilton boasts big city amenities like great dining, and regular concerts by some of the biggest touring acts today. If the venue is the Convention Centre for a tradeshow, meeting, corporate event or wedding - you're a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive away.

Whether work or play - whatever brings you to Hamilton - come and enjoy!

About Sue

Hi I'm Sue!

My partner and I are really excited about hosting and meeting new people. We love to travel, are well traveled and culturally curious. We tend to get right into the swing of things - really get to know the neighbourhood - we hope you will enjoy ours and are happy to answer any of your questions about Hamilton, Toronto and the GTA!

I am an avid fitness and health buff who loves to be active with biking, walking, yoga and working with my trainer pal. Love to cook and wine! Can't wait to read anything - books, mags and the actually.

We're pretty casual and hope that you're comfortable enough to ask if there's anything that you need or that we can do better!

Why Sue chose Kirkendall North

This is an urban bungalow in one one the cutest areas of Hamilton. I will live here one day! Just needs a bit of tweaking to accommodate my things, but it will happen! The location is really fabulous, if you like to be in the middle of things and walk to the bank and shops etc. Which, at this stage of the game, is totally where I'm at!

Fantastic cozy home in the middle of it all; great for families too!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this cozy bungalow in the heart of Hamilton. Despite a mostly rainy weather vacation, this house was super welcoming, comfortable and relaxing. We didn't want for anything. Within walking distance to shops, pubs, restaurants and a park, there was something for everyone in our family, including our 2-year old! Really close to GO train station, we travelled to Toronto to visit the aquarium. We also drove to Niagara to visit the Butterfly Conservatory.

Also within easy distance of up and coming Norfolk wine and brewery region.

We had a great stay.

We would recommend this cozy home to friends and stay there again ourselves.

Thanks Sue for a great stay!

Super convenient

  • 5 of 5

Everything was nice and new and tastefully done. Everything one could need was available. Since there were very young children staying there, the washer and dryer were particularly appreciated. Easy highway access made sightseeing trips a breeze. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends.

Cozy and Clean

  • 4 of 5

Cozy and very clean house . It had all the amenities we needed and they were of good quality. Lots to do around the neighbourhood and the weather was great for sitting at the patio at night. Good WiFi and the washer and dryer was a must for us as there were 6 of us. Beds were comfy and the bathroom was very spacious.We all enjoyed our vacation and hope to visit again in the future. Thanks Sue, you have a beautiful and well maintained house!

Definitely a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I arrived with the baby and were so thrilled with the neighbourhood and the house. The private courtyard is great for the baby to toddle around in.

The house is perfect and the cross breeze amazing so we haven't needed the window AC unit.

We are vaguely aware of the trains but that is all.

The kitchen has everything we need and all the furnishings are new and trendy. The property is immaculate.

Thank you Sue!

Clean, cute and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our young family was very pleased with our stay in this very clean and updated house. A drawback was that there is only one air conditioning window unit and it was very warm to sleep on the hot humid night. Our general impression however is that the location near Locke Street, cleanliness and cute decor makes this a fantastic stay in Hamilton.
