Welcome to our bright, cozy, and licensed basement apartment in Kingston's west end.

Enjoy fresh, locally-roasted, French press coffee each morning and spend the evening beside the gas fireplace.

With parking for one vehicle, you'll find yourself under 10 minutes away from the mall, local restaurants, and the Invista Centre—and a quick 18-minute drive to downtown.

Whether you're here with a purpose or just looking to wander, we've got you covered.

The space
In our bright, two-bedroom basement apartment, you'll find everything you need for your stay (along with a few extras)—a mini-fridge, microwave, convection oven, bathroom with shower, WiFi, mini for music, Netflix, A/C for the summer months, and a gas fireplace which is perfect for cozy winter evenings.

Each morning, you'll enjoy a French press of freshly ground coffee from North Roast Coffee Roasters in Kingston (and if you're not familiar with the French press don't worry, we've left instructions).

We've renovated the ceilings to make them as high as possible, but it is a basement from a 1970's house so if you're over 6' tall, you'll need to duck when going down the hall.

When it comes to guests, as it stands right now, we're able to accommodate two people or one family. Why? House insurance (it really hasn't caught up to short-term rentals) but we're looking into it

Where you’ll be

Kingston, Ontario, Canada

The west end holds its own when it comes to interesting places to visit! By car, you'll find yourself under 10 minutes away from walking trails at Lemoine's Point Conservation Area, the Collins Bay Marina, the Cataraqui Town Centre shopping mall, the Invista Centre, and from a diverse selection of local restaurants and breweries that are sure to satisfy.

Nestled in Bayridge West, we are situated 5km away from Kingston's small airport in a quiet subdivision. You'll hear trains passing by in the distance throughout the day and if you're looking to head out for a walk around the neighbourhood, there are a few great destinations within 20 minutes of your stay. You'll find a plaza with groceries, snacks and a local restaurant, a bistro near the water that serves locally sourced food, an antique market, and chip truck.

My name is Kirstin! I live in Kingston, Ontario with my husband and seven year old son. I was an Educational Assistant for the last several years but since we completed our son's adoption in 2015, I have been loving life as a mom and also, I have been having so much fun being an Airbnb host! When we travelled to South Africa, we stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and I said to my husband "I would love to run a B&B!" While I do not run a B&B, I thoroughly enjoy hosting and focusing on the little details that make our guests feel more comfortable!
