Renting an entire house is convenient for larger groups, such as wedding parties or multiple business travelers, and offers superior privacy as well as sole access to the kitchen, washing machine and dryer. Smaller groups can rent rooms for prices comparable to hotel prices. Condos can also be rented, and are private, but not as large as a whole house. Common areas in partially rented houses are cleaned daily, and weekly cleaning is provided for entire home rentals. Renters must commit to ensuring the kitchen is kept clean after each use.
Amenities offered by Boardwalk Homes include access to a washing machine, dryer, full kitchen, telephone, high-speed internet, television, and parking. A business station is also provided for those who wish to work while renting their space.
Boardwalk Homes has homes in different areas of Waterloo Region, but most are near The Boardwalk, a popular shopping destination that has over fifty different businesses and stores. These include a theatre, gym, bank, hardware store, multiple clothing stores and many restaurants. The Boardwalk is also home to a miniature transit hub with access to Grand River Transit buses. These bus lines provide transportation directly to places such as the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, Uptown Waterloo, Downtown Kitchener and more.
The Boardwalk Homes website offers a photo gallery with photos and information regarding the exterior of the houses, living areas, rooms, and kitchens.
