“Excellent house in a lovely area of Hamilton . Very enjoyable stay , we found the hosts to be very helpful both in communication before our arrival and during the swap with lots of brochures and information on the area left for us which we found helpful . The house is a lovely home very spacious inside with a lovely hot tub and bbq area in the back garden which is really nice to relax in . The location is excellent being only a short walk from the lovely pier 4 park with its scenic lake shore trails . Bikes were left for our use in the garage which we found it to be a very good way to explore the area . Hamilton is a lovely vibrant area with lots going on, it has a lovely community spirit and something for everyone to do . If you ever get the chance you really must visit Hamilton . This area also makes a great launching pad to see Toronto , Niagara falls and surrounding area . Lovely home thanks for having us . ”
