Simple, fully furnished, upper floor room in a shared, exchange-student occupied apartment/ rooming house. 10 minute walk to Queen's campus, fast, reliable WIFI, fully-equipped kitchen and lots of fridge space, small grocery store across the street, lock on bedroom, a house cleaner, and last but not least, nice people to share the home with. (Please inquire first before sending a booking request if possible)


Please read in full and please send a message before booking for additional, seasonal information and to ideally also tell me a bit about yourself ei. what you study, age and, if you like, a bit on your personality/ what you do for fun etc.

Apartment is quiet from road noise as it's rear-facing (with a view of backyards) yet still downtown and very well-located overall with almost a dozen restaurants, a grocery store and a park within a 5 minute walk.

This apartment was designed as a rooming house originally. The ground floor has the kitchen and living room and there are six bedrooms above (two on each of the three upper floors). In its design, building a unit upwards seems to allow for six people to share a home more easily as there are only 2 people living on each floor and it just doesn't seem to have the noise traffic of, for example, a 6 bedroom house. The noise travels much less from floor to floor than it does around a house.

There is a fully-equipped kitchen with two refrigerators, lots of cupboard space and tons of utensils, pots and pans.

The story behind this accommodation is this. I own a courier service and I wanted to rent a building where I could have my home and a small office in the same building that was also located downtown, in proximity to the market and clients we serve. The best option for this combined-use building was this unit. As it had many extra bedrooms, I made them available to rent. I have been managing my home and business residence in a similar way for about 9 years. In that time, I've shared my home mostly with exchange students and also my brothers who were Queen's students. I'm now 34 years old. More about me below.

On the main floor there is a small, separated room with its own exterior entrance for my business. This is a room used by my delivery drivers to pick-up and return equipment such as payment processing machines and paperwork. The business room is separated from the living room by tall cabinets and is just a storage room. (no one works there. All dispatching and administration is done from my employee's homes)

The internet is cable internet with WIFI and has unlimited bandwidth.

There is laundry in the hall of the apartment complex. (Our unit is part of a greater building that has two other units that are identical to ours). It is $2 for washing and $1 for drying. (The rest of the apartment complex and the laundry is managed by the owners of the building and not by me).

Our house cleaner comes 3 to 4 times a month to clean the bathrooms and the floors of the common areas.

Electricity, utilities, internet, house-cleaner included. Toilet paper, hand and dish soap, garbage bags etc are a shared (very minor) expense between all residents.

Rental period up to January 1 required (or an adjustment in price equivalent to that time frame).

This is an excellent opportunity for exchange-students for a one semester accommodation. It is only available at this late date because I only opened the listings on Aug 27 as I had yet to decide what I wanted to do with my home this year and I was very busy and away for a lot of the summer.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Byron is an awesome host! He always made sure I had everything I needed to make my stay in Kingston enjoyable. He also knows everything there is to know about food and things to do in Kingston and most of the other cities in Ontario. The house itself is great - you have the privacy of your own room and the kitchen and living room downstairs where you can hang out and socialize with your housemates. Byron does a great job picking the visitors, and I made many good friends during my stay. Location is ideal, as it is conveniently located close to downtown (lots of awesome bars and restaurants within 5 minute walking distance) and as close to Queen's campus as you can get without living in the student ghetto. Overall I couldn't recommend this place more, and it will definitely be my first choice if I plan on visiting Kingston again!

I stayed at Byron's for a month, and during that time I was reminded of what it felt like to live in a college dorm, with all its advantages and disadvantages. I think that, for long-term accommodation, Byron's place suits people who are flexible and sociable best. If you are staying at Byron's during the summer and can choose among multiple rooms, I would advise you to choose one on the first or second floor over the one on the third floor, as the latter will get unbearably hot if Kingston gets another summer like this one. If you have questions about eating out, Byron can tell you everything you need to know, think of him as a Kingston encyclopedia for foodies. The house itself is conveniently located both for downtown attractions and the campus area.

I regret you weren't satisfied and thanks for your perspective, Eleonora. If there were some things like a dorm I'll add (for information for future inquiring guests) that unlike a dorm, there were nearly no outside visitors, no parties, there are only 6 bedrooms total spread over three floors, the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) were serious people (students and fully employed people) and there is a full kitchen with fridges and cupboard space, among other differences. Unfortunately that was one of the hottest summers ever in Kingston (60 days of the 3 months were above the average temperature) which is normally mild, being that it's on the lake. I always thought the extremely hot days were an exception that would correct itself but, in the end, it happened again and again. The rooms being priced $13 to $19 per night at that time of year, for monthly stays, which is below or at my cost to rent them, had a role in the rooms being rented without fans, which has not been an issue before. (Ontario has the highest electricity rates on the continent so it is a factor). However, I'm sorry I didn't realize this (and other things) were bigger issues for you. I wish I had remedied them at the time, in hindsight. They should have been.

Byron is an amazing host and has left me with a great first impression of Kingston and its residents. The house has 6 bedrooms which he fills with intelligent, mature and interesting students and professionals from Canada and abroad. It was great staying at this place.

Byron was so courteous and accommodating. even though we sent a request to stay in the upper floor room hours before we arrived he was welcoming. its our first time in K. Town he suggested places to see and gave us from his time and was friendly and helpful (he made me park my car in his own parking spot in the drive way). with respect to the room if your on a budget that is what you want great value for the money, location just on princess street walking distance from the downtown core. with access to restaurants pubs coffee shops ..... clean, overlooking (not a basement), decent sleep peaceful and serene You will have your own private room with a key and access to the kitchen(fridge hot water kettle.... fast WiFi ... Overall was a great experience, we will definitely stay over next time and if your looking for a great value for your money and a good host i recommend contacting Byron inquiring about a vacancy

Great space and very welcoming, accommodating host! Only a few minutes walking distance to downtown Kingston and Queen's campus. The host even provides keys to the individual room for extra security. Amazing value and ideal location.

The neighbourhood was great and I really liked the proximity to the university campus and downtown. I will definitely recommend this listing based on its prime location and price. Byron is a great host- very positive and attentive.
