Clean and bright and perfectly located for business and pleasure near downtown Ottawa

  • 5 of 5

this was a combination one week business trip and long weekend vacation. The location was perfect, a simple 3 block walk to Bridgehead Coffee, and a few blocks more and you are in the bustle of Byward market. the kitchen had everything needed for meal prep and the back deck was private and sunny and great place to sit in late afternoon. i will think fondly of this place and plan to come back again.

Cute little place

  • 4 of 5

The house is adorable and close to everything we wanted to do. We didn't have a car and managed to visit museums and stroll along the river. The Byward Market is especially close. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. My only problem was that the bed on the middle floor is very firm and I like them a little softer. Lynda was very nice to us and we had no problems.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This unit is fully equipped with everything for the kitchen and everything you could wish for. The location is only about five blocks from Byward Market. The only down side would be some better landscaping outside with a couple of comfortable chairs for the front and back decks. Also, you access the top bedroom by walking through the first bedroom, which might be a concern depending on who you are traveling with.

Lovely home in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Before discussing the home, I must say that Lynda was extremely easy to deal with, and it wasn't easy for her because I was making reservations while on a bicycle trip, but she was quite understanding and flexible. Everything in the house was just as promised, and Lynda repaid the security deposit very quickly after our stay.

The house is furnished in a very charming and comfortable way. We enjoyed our house time planning our excursions, reading, and just winding down at the end of our busy days.

My husband and I were quite comfortable in the main bedroom, and my daughter was very comfortable in the third floor bedroom, which is accessed from the main bedroom. The kitchen is furnished with anything you might want for a short stay, including spices and dried herbs. The WiFi worked very well, and the air conditioning cooled the house quickly when we returned at the end of the day.

We found the walks to Parliament Hill, the bridge over to Gatineau, Bymarket, the fabulous National Gallery and other points of interest very pleasant, and we didn't use our car from when we arrived until we left. The location really is great.
