About Bettie VanGils Kloet

We are an active family who love the area! We have lived in the Hamilton area for over 20 years and we are very involved in the cycling community. We have three kids who go to school locally. We have stayed in numerous Vacation Rental Homes and know what works for our family, so we have tried to make this house our dream rental house. We know you will find everything you need!

Bettie VanGils Kloet purchased this house in 2015

Why Bettie VanGils Kloet chose Dundas

We bought this property from a friend because it needed a vision for updating. It was somewhat rundown and overgrown, but when we looked at it, we saw beauty. We saw the possibility of a beautiful home that could welcome families to the area. We love that it is within walking distance of the downtown, and has so many services within walking (or biking) distance. Dundas has the older town charm and boutiques and restaurants, and yet the house is only minutes from all the larger venues in Hamilton.

What makes this house unique

We loved the huge windows in this home, as well as the sunny back room, or sunporch. The garage was another great feature, as was the location. The neighbourhood is being developed into more green space, which we loved as well, since we love to hike and explore the outdoors. We also got to know the neighbours, who are very friendly and interested in what is going on around them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the moment I arrived I felt so welcome and comfortable in your King's Court Home...I will certainly come back and stay if I find myself in the area again. You did an amazing job with your "fixer upper". Pleasure being your guest.

Relaxing Week!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and well furnished. The kitchen and bathrooms were in great shape and must have been recently remodeled. Bettie was very accommodating and it was terrific that she provided a crib for the baby to sleep in as well as a nice stroller for us to use. Very convenient location near stores, restaurants and shops. We will certainly be staying here again in the future.

The property was spotless, well-appointed and very welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The property was in an ideal location for us (just next to a Tim Horton's). The owner whom we met was most helpful and did all that she could to make our stay a pleasant one.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this property to anyone and would have no hesitation in using it ourselves in the future.

Home away from home indeed

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the home owner and her family (Bettie) were very welcoming. Bettie is a very awesome lady. She called on regular basis to see that we were ok and suggested place to visit and when the town had a parade.

The place is very beautifully renovated with modern furnishing. It is very clean, comfortable, and spacious. It's pretty much "home away from home".

The area is very nice, pretty much close to almost everywhere .i.e. Toronto, Airport, Etc

Absolutely wonderful!!! I'll definitely contact her when next my family are coming to town as well as recommending her.

Thanks a lot Bettie

Beautiful Butterfly garden within two blocks, hiking trails and cycling trails. Easy bus/bike access to McMaster University and downtown Hamilton. The many waterfalls of Hamilton are a lovely attraction; within minutes you can be at any one of a dozen waterfalls. The Bruce Trail is very close too. For families with young children the Dundas Driving Park has a fabulous splash pad in summer and skating rink in the winter.
