You'll be very comfortable in this quiet, spacious (1800 sq ft) home in a safe, peaceful Cambrian neighborhood.

We'd like you to feel that this your home. You'll have full house privileges, including swimming pool, large refrigerator, full-size washer & dryer, washing your car, use of garage work area, etc. The large kitchen has an electric stove with a BBQ grill, plenty of counter space, plus your own cabinets for personal storage. There's a separate living room with a fireplace to watch TV, read, etc. You can enjoy fresh fruit anytime from the trees in the backyard, which is wood-fenced, private and grassy. There is also a family room for ironing, reading, etc. We use the garage for storage (you can bring a few things) but there is plenty of space for parking in the driveway and directly in front of the house.

Including yourself, a total of 4 people live here. This is a quiet, relaxing home with a lot of privacy (it's not a party house). I've never had any problem residents, so I think you'll enjoy the atmosphere. The house is kept tidy. The whole house was newly carpeted and painted in November, 2000, so it's attractive.

There are two bus stops within a 5-minute walk from the house: Meridian Rd at Dentwood, and Camden at Merrill Loop. If you have questions about the bus service, please contact the VTA directly- I have no information about this.

Lifestyle / House rulestop of page

Everyone is friendly but no one is home much, so it’s a quiet home and easy to relax. There are no age restrictions, but generally our housemates ages range from the mid-20’s to mid-40’s. If you are respectful of others, we’d like to talk to you. Any age, gender or orientation is welcome, but partiers & heavy drinkers are not. Feel free to entertain and occasional overnight guests are okay. Occasional alcohol is okay, no drugs. This is a non-smoking property.

What about pets? Small pets will be considered but, unfortunately, no cats or dogs.

Money Issuestop of page

The utilities are shared equally, approximately $150/person each month, which includes cable TV, Internet, water, gas, electricity, trash, gardener and monthly housekeeping. You may have landline phone service, if you wish. The security deposit is 1.5 times one month’s rent, and you may pay it over three months if your credit is excellent. Your entire deposit will be returned if the room is vacated in good condition.

Visit the House / Apply to renttop of page

We rent only to applicants whom we have met in person.

1. The first step is to drive by the property.

2. Next, Request a Showing Appointment.

3. The property manager will call you to arrange a showing.

4. When you visit the house, we will show you around and get to know you a bit. Feel free to ask any questions.

5. Finally, if you are invited to apply, submit your application with the fee of $26/applicant. This covers a background check, including credit history report. If you apply but we do not process your application (i.e. we accept someone else who applied before you), your money will be returned to you.

Important: If you make an appointment and cannot keep it or will be late, please be considerate and let us know the moment you realize it. We are making a special trip to the house for you! We’ll wait 10 minutes and if you’re not there, we’ll consider it a no-show.

There is no need to bring paperwork to the showing. If you are invited to apply, that’s when to submit your application. Applications are processed only from prospective tenants whom we have met in person.

Questions and Answerstop of page

Q: Is the property or unit available?

A: The current status is shown on our home page. As soon as the status changes, we update the website.

Q: My credit is bad/awful/can’t be described in words. Will you consider me?

A: Yes. We realize that stuff happens. If you’re a good person, please apply and we’ll discuss your situation.

Q: I can’t pay the deposit all at once. May I make payments?

A: Possibly. If you have good credit and can pay at least one-third up-front, or have no credit or poor credit and can pay at least one-half up-front, AND offer us an acceptable plan for paying the balance, we will work with you. Otherwise, the deposit will be due up front.

Q: I’m coming from out of the area and would like to rent. May I apply?

A: Sorry, we don’t rent to anyone we haven’t met. Let us know when you’ll be in town and we’ll show you the property.

A: No, you don’t need to bring anything.

Q: For shared housing, may I meet the other housemates?

A: Yes, you are welcome to meet anyone who is home when you visit and ask them any questions you wish, but we don’t ask the housemates to be available for showings because they have their own schedules.

Q: My personality is like _____. Will you consider me?

A: If you are responsible and considerate of others, we would like to talk to you.

Q: May my spouse/significant other/parent rent with me?

A: Sorry, our rooms are for one person only.
