Anna Arai remembers spending countless hours searching for the perfect place for her large family and friends to stay when they travel as a group. That’s what gave Anna the idea to provide accommodation that offers guests of the bride and groom an ideal space to call their own for the days leading up to and following the wedding.
Giving Kitchener-Waterloo couples a new way to look at guest accommodations, Boardwalk Homes properties are a bit like having your very own private five star hotel. And whether it’s for three days, or thirty, all your guests have to do is move in and enjoy. Each home comes with natural down duvets, a fully equipped kitchen, large dining room, a cozy fireplace, a deck and yard for the kids to play in and more. They’re close to all of the city’s best shopping – and if you’ve got a craving for noodles or sushi, they’ve even got the chopsticks! Boardwalk Homes is a company that seems to have thought of everything you could ever need while you’re away. Let us explain…
Imagine staying somewhere with all of the perks of a high-end hotel; pristine accommodations, unobtrusive staff, and all of the amenities that you don’t want to have to bring along with you like towels, linens, natural down duvets, hair dryers, shampoo and conditioner. Plus, the little comforts of a Bed and Breakfast; everything you need for breakfast each morning, (even including premium coffee beans and a grinder), a living room with a fireplace where you can unwind, all with that cozy home feel.
Now picture all of this in a private, three story detached house, spread out over 3000 plus square feet with five living spaces, five bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen where your entire group can make meals together. Private bedrooms with communal living spaces are perfect for extended families who want to stay together.
Everything you would need, whether you’re staying three days or a month; like free internet, digital cable, local phone, business station, laundry and central air. All of this for a price that is easily the most affordable way for families and big groups to stay together.
So far, Anna is thrilled with the feedback she’s received from guests of Boardwalk Homes, “We’ve had comments like ‘we’ll never have our family or friends stay at a hotel or B&B again when we come to KW’ and ‘this is better than a five star hotel’. Guest houses and chalets are an age old idea, and Boardwalk Homes does it the best. That’s exactly why families and friends love it. It’s private, spacious, carefree, comfortable, and best of all, high-end and low-cost! Where can you find all of this together, in KW?”
Several of the Boardwalk Homes come with a deck and yard where you and your group can relax for the afternoon.
When the kids start getting bored, they can run outside to get rid of some of that pent up energy. If they come inside covered in mud, just throw their clothes in the washer and dryer like you would at home.
When Grandma is ready for bed, she can easily head up to her room without the logistics of getting her back to her hotel room early. And best of all, the bride doesn’t have to worry about who’s looking after Grandma!
Skip the restaurant meal and have a sumptuous dinner on the backyard deck or by the fireplace with loved ones you might not have seen in months!
Where else are you going to find that kind of convenient experience?
Boardwalk Homes’ location can’t be beat. The properties are in the heart of Kitchener-Waterloo, right by ‘The Boardwalk’, one of the largest shopping districts in the area. It’s easy for your guests to pick up some groceries and last minute items before the wedding. Walmart, Lowe’s, banks, Shoppers Drugmart, Winners and more are within walking distance.
If they want to grab a coffee or lunch, guests have easy access to Starbucks and Tim Horton’s, and to a wide range of restaurants from national chain pizzerias to award-winning bistros.
For people that are looking for a little more privacy or something extra special, Boardwalk Homes opened these brand new private, one, two and three bedroom suites. Luxurious, European high thread count linen, natural down duvet, 50 inch flat screen TV, fireplace, granite counter top kitchen, hardwood floor… you name it, you’ll have it.
Anna says their two and three bedroom condos are very popular, with a “New York Chic” vibe. Think: high ceilings, sky lights and modern décor.
If your family is coming from out of town, chances are, they might only see each other a couple of times a year. Boardwalk Homes gives them the perfect place to spend some real quality time together. They’ll have a house to themselves where they can hang out, cook dinners, play board games and celebrate your momentous occasion!
And for Anna, this kind of accommodation only works if guests feel comfortable, carefree and at home, “We’re warm and welcoming and we do our best to provide an inviting space where families can gather and build even more memories around the bride and groom’s special day. It’s a place where they can focus on each other and the upcoming ceremonies and truly feel at own home. We prepare the houses, including fresh fruit baskets and more, before guests arrive and then we’re out of the way so they can enjoy spending time together .”
