About Paul

Hello all and welcome to my condo!

I am law enforcement officer at the ministry of Public Safety. And of course I like law and order.

One of my passion is to travel more or moreover to travel every day if I could. Work to travel and travel to work.

I also like to share my thought and meet with new people from around the world as we are different with our cultures, customs, believes, etc. But at the same time we are an unique creature as a human.

Good human communication has a high value in me. Bien-sûr, je parle aussi français, chinois (Cantonese, from Hong Kong) and Vietnamese! Vous serez dans le grand confort, chez-moi c'est comme chez-vous!

Paul purchased this condo in 2012

Why Paul chose Ottawa

My condo is located in the HEART of Ottawa's downtown. This means close to my workplace, government buildings, shopping center, convention center, etc and to all the benefits of being in downtown. OTTAWA'S CONVENTION CENTRE IS AT 500 METRES (5 MINUTES WALK).

What makes this condo unique

As you may see in the pictures, there are many granite or marble furniture in addition to the stainless steel appliances and the hardwood flooring. All these upgrades have been specially chosen for your comfort.


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Really liked almost everything about this condo. It's well equipped in an excellent location & the beds are very comfortable.

5 min walk to the By Ward Market, 15 min walk to Parliament. Across the street from the LCBO and 24 hr Metro grocery store. Paul was great to deal with. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the size. It's pretty small for a 2 bedroom (guessing about 750 sq ft). Although that might not be fair as I think that may be the standard for the area, and it is a great area. We are country folk so just used to a little more elbow space.

Downtown for sure. Close to food and beverage shopping, Byward Market, short walk to Parliament and Canal. Even some ethnic flavour with excellent Ethiopian and Caribbean takeout options locally.

The unit was well appointed, cozy and the check in well done, very clean, thanks Lorraine.

Nice building amenities and easy parking, condo style.

One bedroom gets some road noise being 3rd floor adjacent to uphill traffic but still not bad.

Paul was accommodating regarding variations in scheduling that arose from weather and a misunderstanding on booking dates.

I would recommend this as a good stay option for up to for people looking for a central location in Ottawa.

Great place to stay downtown Ottawa

  • 4 of 5

We attended a conference at the conference centre, and the location was perfect (just three blocks away). This is a very nice and central apartment that allows you to stay in and cook and have breakfast if you wish while only being away a 5 minute walk from great restaurants and pubs. Definitely recommend to stay here if you want to explore downtown Ottawa.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo with all the features needed and certainly beats staying in a small hotel room. The unit was very clean and had all the amenities you could need for a stay in Ottawa. Great location as you are just a 10 - 15 min walk from everything downtown. Will certainly book again when we head back that way. Thanks Paul.

Excellent solution!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us while visiting family in the area. It was close to everything to allow us to see the sites over Canada Day week and get to the suburbs to visit with family. The condo is outfitted with everything - towels, sheets, kitchen pots/pans/etc - and the beds are quite comfortable. Despite facing King Edward (a busy street) the windows are quite sound proof. Paul made the check in and check out process very easy and flexible as well. We'll plan to stay again when the opportunity presents itself. Thanks again Paul!

Owner's Response: Emily and Chris Family stayed at my 2 bedroom condo and even helped me by giving the key to my other renter of my 1bedroom (since I was out of town on Canada Day - Confederation) unit which is in the same building. They also left the condo very clean and respected all the rules. It is always nice to host this type of family at my condos! Thanks Chris and Emily! Paul
