About Bettie VanGils Kloet
We are an active family who love the area! We have lived in the Hamilton area for over 20 years and we are very involved in the cycling community. We have three kids who go to school locally. We have stayed in numerous Vacation Rental Homes and know what works for our family, so we have tried to make this house our dream rental house. We know you will find everything you need!
Bettie VanGils Kloet purchased this House in 2015
Why Bettie VanGils Kloet chose Dundas
We bought this property from a friend because it needed a vision for updating. It was somewhat rundown and overgrown, but when we looked at it, we saw beauty. We saw the possibility of a beautiful home that could welcome families to the area. We love that it is within walking distance of the downtown, and has so many services within walking (or biking) distance. Dundas has the older town charm and boutiques and restaurants, and yet the house is only minutes from all the larger venues in Hamilton.
What makes this House unique
We loved the huge windows in this home, as well as the sunny back room, or sunporch. The garage was another great feature, as was the location. The neighbourhood is being developed into more green space, which we loved as well, since we love to hike and explore the outdoors. We also got to know the neighbours, who are very friendly and interested in what is going on around them.

A little Dundas Dream....
This property is wonderful for families! The location is outstanding and the property manager, Bette, is terrific. It was especially great for us, as we have aging parents in Amica—which is walking distance from the house. A great time was had by all!!
Perfect home away from home
We loved the house! We were six adults and had plenty of room and were totally comfortable. The house was extremely clean and well stocked- kitchen, bathroom and laundry supplies ( yes we did do wash on vacation). We cooked breakfast and sometimes supper. Metro supermarket only about a mile away. The sunroom was nice for breakfast. Very pretty front and back yards. We used the grill but didn’t sit outside although it was set-up if we wanted to. We also say yeah for the recycling program!!
You would never know there was a couple in the basement- totally no sounds.
Bettie was very nice and answered any questions we had.
We visited sights in Toronto, Niagara Falls, Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington and Niagara on the Lake.
Our trip to Canada was very good and staying st Betti’s house was icing on the cake. She couldn’t have been more thoughtful in designing her house for comforts for travelers.
We thank you Bettie.

Very comfortable beds & plenty of hanging space. Well equipped kitchen - plenty of crockery & cutlery. The Butterfly Garden is worth a visit (within walking distance), as is Cherry Hill Gate (next to the Botanical Gardens in Burlington). Excellent directions, and check-in/out very easy.
Amazing stay with the kindest host, thank you Bettie!
My group of five friends came as exchange students, and stayed in Bettie's home for a good three months. It was nothing short of amazing, right from the time we arrived in Hamilton. Bettie was very helpful in fetching us to the house, which already gave us so much reassurance that we picked the right place to stay. Not only that, Bettie also went over and beyond with her hospitality, and welcomed us to her lovely home for dinner and to meet her lovely family. It is through these interactions that we got to learn more about the culture and way of living here, and we really appreciated this because it helped us to feel more at home soon.
With regard to the house itself, I must say that it is such a big home! There was ample space for each of my friends to take up one corner in the house, and Bettie has done such a good job furnishing the house and ensuring that it's kept clean - with bi-weekly cleaning service. The bedrooms are also so homely, especially with the study desks which were a special addition put in for us, given that we would need a study area too.
The neighborhood is also so pleasant, given the walking proximity to Metro (large grocery store), many restaurants and fast food shops, and even the pharmacy.
Overall, it was really such a pleasant stay and it was sad to leave this house. Thank you Bettie, once again, for going out of your way to ensure that we felt right at home, since the start of our stay! :)
Hi Isabelle, hope you are doing well. I am excited to pick up Shermayne this afternoon!!
Home away from Home
So lucky to be able to have the opportunity to stay here with family and friends and be so close to charming downtown dundas.
The house was perfect and our host and hostess were always there if we needed anything (but we never did) Already planning to book next year.
Beautiful Butterfly garden within two blocks, hiking trails and cycling trails. Easy bus/bike access to McMaster University and downtown Hamilton. The many waterfalls of Hamilton are a lovely attraction; within minutes you can be at any one of a dozen waterfalls. The Bruce Trail is very close too. For families with young children the Dundas Driving Park has a fabulous splash pad in summer and skating rink in the winter.
