We've been home owners using VRBO since 2013 (townhouse that we sold in 2017 to buy this property). We had VRBO excellent ratings (see below):

Reviews we have received from our past property that we rented from 2013-2017.

July 2016, Yvo d. - "Thank you Vicky, for providing help and being professional and friendly during our stay."

June 2016, Sarah J. - "the house is fully equipped with everything you might need, including kitchen, laundry, parking, internet, and two full bathrooms. It's very clean and comfortable, and the rental process was hassle free and very convenient."

June 2016, Jeremy C. - "The home owner was very professional and helped with all our questions. The house was very clean and well supplied. I would recommend this place to anyone. We look forward to renting it again."

May 2016, Kent O. - " It's really all that the other reviewers say it is. We were particularly happy with the set-up for small children though, ours loved the books and toys! Great place, I wouldn't consider going anywhere else now for a stay in Ottawa."

August 2015, Lia - "Clean, well taken care of, this house has what you need for a family stay. Enough beds, crib, pack n play, two dining tables, comfy cvouch and lots of little kid this and books."

July 2014, M&C - " I have two small children and the best thing about this location was that I did not have to bring the ton of stuff that I normally have to when travelling. It had a crib and high chair for my little one along with toys for both to play with. It also had baby gates at the top of both sets of stairs which put my mind at ease with a new crawler."

About Vicky

We moved from Australia to Bancroft (ON) to live in a lake house.

We are outdoorsy people and are a young family of 4. We bought this house after falling in love with Ottawa (where we had originally bought a townhouse) - there is so much for all ages to do, and it's so easy to get around by car, public transport, biking or walking.

There are great community festivals and awesome food spots in our neighbourhood. We even have a local brewery. It's a fantastic spot.

Vicky purchased this house in 2017

Why Vicky chose Carlingwood - McKellar Park - Laurentien View

Being new to Ottawa, we started exploring it like site seers and travelers. This property's location provides us with easy access to kids parks, walking trails, hiking opportunities, museums, shopping etc. we could ever imagine to explore. We wanted to be close to shops, restaurants and cafes, and bonus: the Ottawa Farmers Market is here too.

Everything you can possible want is only a 10-minute drive away from us, or walking distance. We also have public transportation (only a few minutes walk from this property).

It is also close to Dovercourt Recreation Centre that has an indoor public pool, fitness centre, organized sports, playground, outdoor kid pool (in the summer), summer camps etc.

What makes this house unique

Everything you want to see in Ottawa is 10 minutes from this property in trendy Westboro.

You can walk to the Ottawa Farmers Market (100 meters away), 5 min bike ride to Westboro beach, 3 min walk to Clocktower brew pub or Keg Manor, 5 min walk to MEC and 3 min walk to Baker Street Cafe (amazing breakfast). Oh and the 170 km River pathway for biking and cross-country skiing in a 5 min walk away.

Every time we are here we leave our front door on foot, and within 10 minutes have found new areas to explore.
