By Ward Market Luxury - Spacious, Beautiful & Well Located

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

For much less than the cost of a single room in a hotel, you can enjoy the spacious comfort of our NEWLY RENOVATED, DESIGNER DECORATED, one bedroom, two story apartment. Our apartment is within minutes walk of many of the wonderful attractions that our Nation's Capital has to offer.


It is a short walk to External Affairs, Dept of National Defense, Parliament Hill, RCMP & University of Ottawa.

Walk to the Parliament Buildings, the National Art Gallery, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, or use bikes to explore the paths along the Rideau Canal and the Ottawa River. In the winter months skate along one of the longest skating rinks in the world, the Rideau Canal, or take a short drive to the Gatineau hills where you can enjoy cross country and down hill skiing and all sorts of out door adventures.

Take a stroll down the street and enjoy the lively By Ward Market where you can purchase fresh foods and crafts items. Pamper yourself with a visit to one of the several outstanding Spas located within a 10 minute walk from our home. Indulge in a delicious meal (or two!) at some of the superb restaurants that the By Ward market area has to offer.

In the evening enjoy the many clubs and bars with dancing and live entertainment or take in a performance at the National Arts Center, only a short walk from our apartment.

If a quiet 'evening in' is what you need, after creating dinner in our well equipped kitchen, relax and and enjoy a glass of wine in our spacious and comfortable living room or in the quiet courtyard, watch a movie on our flat screen lcd tv or take a relaxing bath in the soaker tub then sleep in comfort on our king size bed.

Fully networked, cable TV.

About Linda Price-Bennett

I love to spend time in the downtown, lower town and Market areas of Ottawa. I regularly visit the National Art Gallery, take in performances at the National Arts Center and frequent the museums, shops, galleries and restaurants in the area. I enjoy the area and spend so much of my leisure time downtown Ottawa, that I wanted to have a vacation home there! I looked for over a year and a half for just the right place- and i have found it! Spacious, great kitchen and wonderful bathroom with a rain shower and soaker tub, hardwood floors, a private garden and BBQ area, bright, clean, quiet, safe, and close to everything... I frequently travel and have used VRBO to find incredible accommodations (just like mine) all over the world.

Linda Price-Bennett purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Linda Price-Bennett chose Lower Town

This location is ideal for easy access to all the places that are really worth visiting while in Ottawa. I love that we do not need a car at all, that we can walk everywhere. We can even walk to the liquor store and the grocery store! Public Transit is easily available and can take us all over the city.

What makes this apartment unique

I most enjoy the proximity to so many interesting places and things. I love that our home, though right in the middle of such a thriving area of the city, is quiet and safe. What I like best about our home is that it is bright, open and inviting. The kitchen is great for making snacks or full meals while at the same time, superb restaurants are less than three blocks from home (if we don't feel like cooking). The living room is spacious and the hard wood floors are beautiful. The bathroom and the kitchen have just been redone and are really great. I love the large, quiet bedroom and the comfy bed and the quiet enclosed court yard and BBQ area. When we are in the apartment it is so quiet and peaceful that it is difficult to imagine that we are in the center of a bustling city. I love that we can walk everywhere we want to go!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed in this apartment for a month while working on contract with the government.

It was better that advertised. Very comfortable, quiet, and super convenient.

I would highly recommend it.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for a month while on contract with the federal government and loved it! The apartment was very comfortable and well set up with everything I needed. It is in a quiet residential area and about a 10 minute walk to the parliament buildings and very close to the By Ward Market.

The owner was responsive and very helpful. I will definitely stay again in the future.

Best location for downtown Ottawa

  • 5 of 5

I showed there the place was clean, all that I needed was my suitcase. Cable TV internet washer and dryer were also available. The king size bed was very comfortable. The kitchenette had a dishwasher and appliance needed to cook my self a nice meal after work.

I surely recommend this to all. Note If you are military this is a prime location for IR. It is also close from the Market, Rideau center and all what Ottawa downtown has to offer.

Lovely apartment, bad service

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed the apartment, it was lovely and clean and close to the Byward Market area. There are two church/mission's across the road which you have to walk past (one on either side of the road) to get to the apartment so I wouldnt reccomend this for woman travelling alone, especially if you're walking home after dark. Unfortunately our experience has been tainted by the fact that we havent recieved our security deposit back. Its now nearly a month since our stay and I have not been able to reach Linda by email or phone, im actually hoping she will see this review and get in touch.

Wonderful Location and Apartment

  • 4 of 5

What a great location to Ward Market! We did not rent a car, and had a wonderful time walking to shops, pups and other cultural places. As our son and his wife live close by, and have a new born and a 2 yr old, we decided it would be nice to have our own place to go "home" to. This apartment was a wonderful refuge. We didn't mind the kitchen being downstairs as ate most of our meals at local pubs and with our son's family. The apartment was clean and everything was in working order. We will definitely rent it again.

Cozy and elegant

  • 4 of 5

My family of four stayed at this Murray St apartment for Canada Day weekend 2013. It was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Nice linens, great decor and interesting use of space. The kitchen is downstairs off the master bedroom which was good so that we could make coffee in the a.m. without waking our daughters! The owner and her assistant were very professional and made the process simple. So no surprises, the apartment is in a section of town that while very convenient to downtown, (about 10 mins walk to Byward Market area) is being gentrified so has rough pockets. However we felt safe and really enjoyed our stay. Canada Day in Ottawa is a must do- it was fantastic!

Cancelled Booking

  • 4 of 5

We liked this apt. and its "sister" one in the same building- we have now stayed there twice. However,

we booked the same apt. for the first week of October 2012, months in advance, and had the booking confirmed. 1 month before our arrival, our booking was cancelled by the owner with no reason given. This left us scrambling for another rental. This is prime time in Ottawa and another rental is nigh impossible to obtain . We are very disappointed in the owner's business style and for leaving us in the lurch!
