  • Queen size Beds (2) plus 1 double bed and a fold down sofa in the living room suitable for 1 adult or 2 children sleeps 7 people in total. The 3 bedrooms are quite separate from each other so perfect for privacy. Though there are 3 bedrooms we do not classify the third bedroom as a bedroom, though it has its own door, pot lights in its ceiling, a window, heating, a closet, HDTV, PS3, HD terminal and a double bed. The reason we do not consider it a third bedroom is because it is less than 5 feet high. This is perfect for children (and children at heart! ) and young adults. This bedroom is extremely popular,and people fight over staying in it, but we thought it would be unfair to not disclose the height restrictions. ...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a retired interior designer who went back to school (Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts Institute) to become a chef. I have taken my love of both and created an apartment that would appeal to all. My husband and I love to travel and we incorporate those touches that other hosts have included during our stays in their homes into this condo.

Why the Owner Chose Ottawa:
We chose this condo because we knew it had great potential though it would require a significant renovation. We opened up the space and made it more efficient. We are very pleased with the way it turned out. Our guests have been appreciating the condo too, especially children (or children at heart) who gravitate towards the 'Harry Potter' bedroom. Many guests have chosen this condo because their children were told about this special bedroom from friends who had stayed previously. The location is ideal for enjoying Ottawa and all it has to offer. Most tourist attractions are within walking distance, as is the university of Ottawa and most embassies.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Two-story apartment allows privacy between the main bedrooms. This condo is located in the oldest house on its street (1871) and it has been completely updated and restored. The condo is also within walking distance of most tourist attractions, plus 24-hour grocery store, banks, restaurants, and major bus lines.
