Letter of Recommendation:25 February 2014

Dear fellow medical students:

I stayed at 21 Wavell for two weeks during my elective rotation at McMaster. It was such a pleasant stay that I came back again on my CaRMS tour.

Firstly, it is a great location. It is just a short walk to St.Joseph Hospital and a 7 minute drive to the Hamilton General. It is literally a 30 second walk to the bus stop if you would like to use public transport. The Juravinski Hospital is also walking distance away.
 Rooms are clean and cozy with comfortable beds. The house itself is very quiet too.
There are 2 bathrooms in the house that you share with someone else. They are always clean, and I never had any issue of sharing a bathroom at 21 Wavell.

Barbara is a very kind and lovely lady who makes sure you are comfortable while you are there. She picked me up at the airport and drove me to McMaster for registration. Also, she provides you with all the useful info that you need to get around Hamilton.  You can find anything from bus schedule to the map of McMaster in her welcome package!  Honestly, staying with Barb is like staying with your favorite aunt.

I recommend 21 Wavell to any medical student/ resident who is looking for a short stay in Hamilton. It will be safe, comfortable stay at a very reasonable price.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you had any questions.

Who Has Stayed at the Grey's Anatomy Dr's Residence?

To date I have had over 300 young doctor's stay with me for up to 4-5 weeks, but usually just for their 2 weeks McMaster Medical Elective Rotation.   

Many Medical Students have come from the UK to do Medical Electives in the hope of "Matching" back home in Canada.  

Very private quiet home, in safe residential neighbourhood.  Door codes are the last 4 numbers of your cell phone number..  

The home has 2 bathrooms, 2 microwaves, 2 refrigerators and a 50" TV,  UNLIMITED high speed cable wireless internet. 24HR GOOD LIFE FITNESS is one 12-minute bus ride away. 

For security reasons everyone staying must provide proof of current Hospital ID, and a copy of your McMaster Medical Elective Acceptance Letter.  A deposit of $200.00 is required at the time of booking to guarantee you your spot, which is included in your stay price.  Balance due upon arrival.

$280.00/week  Staying an additional night?  $50.00  ALL MED STUDENT rooms are booked starting on: 

If you would like the smaller room for $260.00 per week, let me know in your email

 Medical Students From: SUNDAY 2 PM  through  NOON Saturday 

HOWEVER if you need_ to stay the SATURDAY NIGHT you must let me know at the time of your booking, and with no exception you must depart by 9 AM on Sunday morning, as to give time to make up the room for Sunday afternoon.      YOU MUST BOOK THIS EXTRA NIGHT, at the time of booking ONLY IF THERE IS AVAILABILITY!!!  EXTRA NITE is $50.00

 MEDICAL RESIDENTS register on Tuesday morning at 0830, therefore your room is booked as of MONDAY 5 PM, with checkout by  6PM on the TUESDAY.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Google Maps appear to be giving wrong directions for this location, and showing it takes 1.5 hours to get to the hospitals!! This is totally wrong.  5 minutes by bus to St. Josephs Hospital, or 8-10 minutes to walk.  If you have questions about the map that is showing up on the site, PLEASE contact me about it.  It's upsetting, but its also very wrong. 

ZONE 8 on the McMaster site is in relation to McMaster University!  Only McMaster Hospital is in the west end of the city.   

You do NOT need a car to stay at 21 Wavell if you are at the hospitals mentioned!  If you have a car, then driving to McMaster takes 15 minutes and I have parking in the driveway as well as on street parking.  The house is also a 5 minute bus ride from the Hamilton GO Station! Testimonials: 

FACE BOOK:  Barbara Eagleson Hamilton., and check out MUTUAL FRIENDS for others in your Med School who have stayed here!  Friends you know, are the BEST reference.
