We wish we had read the reviews! Stay away! Very loud argumentative neighbours way into the night. People coming in and out all night. No dead bolt on the door. We did not sleep and we did not feel safe. We had booked for multiple nights but immediately said we would not stay more than one night and we wanted a refund. We were told to talk with Expedia. We did. Expedia said the property would not refund. Period. Again, do not stay here.

Good but not great
Great central location. Great communication with host and check in. Kitchen is beautiful but very basic cooking implements ( no knives etc ). No wash cloths (face cloths ) or dish towels or cleaning supplies - but worked well for a few days. Apt is clean enough but windows are not and screens torn so you can’t really leave windows open. A bit more attention to detail would make it a five star.

Worst ever
Landlord came in my room without knocking. My puppy barked, came out of bathroom and seen the door somewhat opened, checked and some guy started telling im not to have a puppy(was cleared when booking) he then tells me my puppy open the door. Called the owner and it was nothimg but lies. I let her know i was leaving the property and will not br staying for the remaining nights, didnt care and i think they do this on a regular basis... stay away unless you want invasion of privacy.

This property is a beautiful place to stay, as advertised and well appointed. From the beds and pillows to the large tv and comfy couch this property is a gem! It was easy to find, had ample parking, and was close to the hub of Waterloo. Communication with the owners was fast and easy. 5 stars!

I stayed in this unit over the weekend I had experienced an issue with a nest of flying ants in the master bedroom. I had my cat with me so the property manager messaged me and requested $90 which I sent but then when I messaged them explaining there was bugs they never messaged me back clearly they only care about money.
