We stayed her with our two daughters. The home was well equipped , very clean and spacious. We had two bedrooms and a full kitchen. Doris was available for any questions we had and responded back to us right away. Home is located in a great area as well.

The location of this property and the responsiveness from the customer care team of Zoe and Doris is excellent. All of my requests and communication was swiftly and directly dealt with. The location is in a quiet neighbourhood perfectly located for peace and work from home. Parks with paths and shopping within walking distance.

I stayed at Boardwalk homes for a little over two months. My stay has its pros and cons (mostly pros). Pros: 1-Great location: close to a plaza that has a pharmacy, grocery store and a Tim Hortons. It is also close to green fields and trails. 2-Good neighborhood: the neighborhood was quiet and people stay at the complex were nice and respectful people. 3-Great customer service: I mainly dealt with Zoe and Doris and both did an amazing job with being efficient in their responses and immediately addressing my concerns. Individuals who performed maintenance were also efficient at their job. 4-Pets allowed: it is hard to find a short term rental unit that also allows pets. 5-Provided limited essentials and toiletries: coffee, sugar, toilet paper, paper towel, dish soap, garbage bags, laundry detergent. 6-Private entrance. 7-Easy access to garbage/recycle. Cons: 1-I received a discount for a slightly longer term. However it was still expensive, especially given some reasons that I will list below. I paid a total of about 7200$ for my entire stay. I think a decrease in the price if individuals want to stay for more than a month would be reasonable. 2-The unit is advertised as luxurious but it is not luxurious. More specifically, the advertised king size bed is two twins put together and the bed frame is not sturdy, and the mattress is squeaky. The sofa/ sofabed is terrible and needs to be replaced. 3-Some kitchenware are rusty and I wasn't able to use them (e.g. frying pan).

My husband and I are between homes and needed to find a suitable place for 3 months. We are renting a one bedroom suite in the complex of stacked townhouses on Glasgow Street. We were very pleasantly surprised that the suite is quite large and is well equipped, decorated very nicely, and the bed is comfortable. We had a couple of minor problems initially which were taken care of immediately upon notification to the ladies at Boardwalk. The suite was very clean and fresh towels were in the unit. It’s also great to have an in-suite washer and dryer. The complex is really nice, well maintained, and in a great neighbourhood! It’s close to great shopping, medical, and the universities. It also backs onto trails and green spaces for walking etc. Our only minor issue is that we can hear the family in the unit above walking around on the hardwood floors but Boardwalk have very kindly offered to provide those people (who are private renters) with a plush rug in the area that might be the most noticeable... e.g., above our bedroom so we don’t hear them at night. We realize that we are not used to having people living above us. The price point is excellent and we would highly recommend it. Hey, life isn’t perfect but this place is close to perfection!

We had to quarantine for 14 days coming from the US and stayed in 6D with our two labs. Our reservation was for 15 days. WARNING: It is a filthy one bedroom BASEMENT apartment with a small concrete patio with two plastic dirty chairs and a small dirty table. We bought a vacuum and there was more black hair than I had ever seen collected in a 550sq ft (NOT 900 + sq. ft,, above ground with a deck, as sold). The oven and appliances had never been cleaned, the pillows and linens soiled and the couch, ottoman, rug and carpets were stained with black mold and years of filth. The shower would not drain and gurgled up thousands of black hairs after we had to buy draino to clear the pipes. Be warned that any place that WILL NOT allow you to visit or know the address before they take your money 24 hours before check in IS A SCAM. $3,000K to stay for 15 days when they know you cannot leave due to quarantine is robbery! Not to mention a month resolving a parking ticket after we had provided the vehicle information. When I emailed them at check in to tell them about the conditions, they praised themselves on their hygiene and cleaning practices and were "shocked" that this was our experience and offered NO solution or change of accommodation. Thankfully we checked out day 14 the minute quarantine was completed and when I gave them a courtesy heads up, they asked us to be out by 11am without a refund of the day/night. See attached pictures and DO NOT book this place or any other place associated with Boardwalk Homes. If you are there now, check out. If you have reservations, cancel them. If you care about yourself and your health, report them. Boardwalk Homes is a criminal organization that should be condemned. Third world prisons have better living conditions.

Kim, You initially made a reservation for 4.5 MONTHS (which is a much lower rate) but after everything was confirmed, you requested change of dates a few times and then shortening of stay to 15 nights claiming that you had a snag in your plans due to COVID. In fact, you rented another place after the 15 nights and just wanted to use our condo as a quarantine place. According to our cancellation policy included in the confirmation, you were required to pay 20% of the rental since you cancelled 90% the reservation within one month of check-in. We had relaxed the cancellation policy and charged you a daily rate plus pet cleaning fee for 2 dogs. Unfortunately, you were still not happy with this arrangement. We apologized that there were a few misses in the cleaning of the unit due to same day check in and check out such as dust on the vent and used bottles of salt and pepper, but nothing close to what you claimed. We would be able to arrange further cleaning if you were not in a quarantine situation. We understand that you were staying in the unit for quarantine, but you did not observe the quarantine rule as we know that you knocked on neighbour’s door and were outside talking to other people. In our description of the unit, we say it is around 900 sq. ft. of living space which includes 796 sq. ft. of the inside unit according to builder’s plan plus over 100 sq. ft. patio and it is definitely not 550 sq. ft. as claimed by you. It is NOT a basement unit but only 4 steps down the ground floor with full size windows throughout the unit. We do arrange viewing of our units subject to availability, but you had not requested for one as you came from US. However, we gave the condo complex address just not the unit number so as not to disturb the guests staying there. Like a hotel, one will not know which particular room one will be staying at until the day of check in. This is both for room management practice for our business, and guest privacy for the previous guests. One day before checked out date you emailed us that you would check out by noon. At one point, we thought that you meant you would check out by noon on the check out date, so we reminded you check out time should be 11:00 am. We sorted out the communication within half an hour and asked you to take your time to check out. You moved out one day earlier because your other 4-month rented place was ready to move in. And you wanted to take advantage of that and not pay us your committed length of time. Since you did not give us advance notice to shorten your stay, we could not refund your one night. The parking ticket was a mistake by condo management, and we took up responsibility to deal with them. We promised that we would pay for the ticket or had it cancelled but you kept on emailing us on the matter. It was cancelled at the end and we had communicated this to you. We would like to point out that a reservation is binding on both sides. You booked a reservation and then requested shortening of stay by 90%. We relaxed our cancellation policy by charging you daily rate for the 15 nights instead of 20% of the 4.5 monthly rental. You used COVID as an excuse but in fact you kept on looking for cheaper options after the reservation was confirmed and ignored our cancellation policy in the official confirmation sent to you. Giving us such an exaggerated bad and fabricated review is totally unfair to us and misleading to other people. We had not dealt with such a nasty situation since we opened for business almost 10 years ago. Any interested travellers please also read other reviews from guests of us of the past 10 years. We are a small family own business who has been doing our best, especially during this difficult time.
