Nice and cozy basement apartment. Convenient to Kitchener Waterloo International Airport, downtown, with shopping nearby. Grocery store within walking distance. Across the street from a community center with indoor pool and sauna. 10 minute walk to the river and the river trail system - great for walkers and runners.

If you're moving to Canada, please consider renting for 4 weeks. It's very difficult to find housing and we may not be able to extend your stay.

The space

Entire apartment with all the privacy with separate bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, dining and living room, sofa bed, and laundry. Private yard for your use. Parking provided on our driveway.

For business travellers, both wifi and wired internet are available. If you need more desk space we have a folding table you can use.

Guest access

You have the entire apartment with private entry. You have access to a side yard with outdoor furniture. You can have access to the back yard by arrangement - we need to make sure that the gate is closed so our dog doesn't go exploring. Our dog is friendly, loves greeting guests.

Interaction with guests

We live upstairs. Anything you need, just ask. We share the laundry room but we have no need to ever enter the apartment.

We like to give our guests a welcome basket. As we have visitors from many places and cultures, please let us know if you have any cultural or dietary rules or restrictions you follow.

Other things to note

There is a shelf with books and games. Please feel free to swap books and games.

We will normally try to give you advanced notice via SMS, email, or phone if we need to enter the apartment. We reserve the right to enter the apartment without notice in an emergency, if we suspect you're causing damage, or if we suspect you may have had a health issue.

We can stock the kitchen with food on request. Contact us for costs, choices and other details.

Yan and Noriko have a wonderful home to share with AirBnB guests. Their home is well maintained, easy to access, clean and their rental unit was simply fantastic and met every need we had! If you have a choice between this unit and another nearby, you'd be silly to choose anything else!! Enjoy your stay with a very friendly couple that is more than willing to help make your stay the best that it can be. Noriko made several suggestions and even providing products of her own to help us in a pinch. We are grateful to them for their generosity of spirit and hope to stay with them again soon! You should too!

My stay with Yan and Noriko was about three weeks. Everything was as it is described on airbnb. I was glad to find clean towels and bedcover, and even soap and shower gel was available (it helped me keeping my suitcase not overstuffed). Moreover, I was grateful to find a basket with some basic food in the appartment upon my arrival. The house is situated in a quiet environs. There is a short walk to Grand River along which a trail offers good opportunities to go running or just to relax. A supermarket is a 5 min walk away. Yan and Noriko are really nice persons and undemonstrative. If you do not want to see them it is o.k., but they are always there if anything is needed. To conclude, I enjoyed my stay, and I can recommend this place to everybody (maybe except to people in steady party mood....).

First time using Airbnb, and would use again. both Noriko and Yan very nice. apartment lovely. Liked the little touches of the basket with biscuits etc. Also the items in the fridge, all good. We all enjoyed staying there and would recommend to anyone. Where their home was situated was a good base for what we were doing.

The hosts are VERY accommodating. I requested a early and late check out and they complied with no issue. Best is I asked for some food/drinks to be bought before hand as we don't know the Kitchener area very well, and they did. Communication was excellent I was able to communicate to the hosts with fast, accurate responses. The home itself was clean and comfortable. It was a 15 min walk/ 5 min uber ride to bingemans which I was there for EverAfter music festival. Met one owner a couple times and she was very friendly. Thank you very much for your hospitality and I will be coming back next year for sure :)

Response from Yan & Noriko:
Thanks Krista. I know you guys had a great time. You were great in letting us know what you had planned, and that you had extra day guests, and that you needed to use the driveway. Just to clarify for those reading this review, we do early checkin and late checkout based on the availability of the apartment, so please contact us before you make your arrival and departure plans.

Yan & Noriko are very carefully with all details. The place are perfect for who is looking peace and a time to organize your self or working. The wifi was the good point to us. They were comprehensive and help us with a lot of tips. I really recommended this place!

This place was very welcoming! We arrived around 10 pm, left late... and the owners were very welcoming. The unit is a basement apartment, had all the equipment we needed, very clean, no issues with wifi (everyone always needs wifi these days). All was great!

I stayed at Yan & Noriko's place for 3 nights while in town for a volleyball tournament. Our stay was wonderful! The apartment was clean, bright, and cozy. The hosts are amazing with communication. Any questions I had were promptly answered. Check-in was a breeze. Close to grocery stores and a short drive to restaurants, and coffee shops. Thank you for being such wonderful hosts. I highly recommend booking this apartment!
