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 townhouse after falling in love with Ottawa - 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 townhome in 2013

Why Vicky chose Ottawa

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: Parkdale 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).

What makes this townhome unique

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

You can walk to the War Museum along the River pathway and stop in at Mill Street Pub for lunch. We're only 3.5 km to the Parliament Buildings downtown and 2.5 km in the other direction to trendy Westboro.

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

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for all the places we needed to be. Lovely walk to shops, restaurants and the market. Spacious, lots of closet space in the bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen.

We had an issue with the a/c the second day there, and Vicky was easily contacted and worked on it very quickly.

The only thing we would recommend is sorting out a way to avoid clients having to bring towels and find a way to get rid of the garbage, especially for those from out of the country and who do not have contacts in the area who could assist. The garbage was a challenge, even for our son who lives in Ottawa, but we were leaving on a holiday.

Other than that, it was a great experience for us.

Ottawa Stay for Canadian Amateur Golf Championship

  • 4 of 5

This 3-bedroom condo was suitably located to the golf facilities. The rooms were bright and clean; the kitchen was very-well equipped with everything we needed. The master suite is above average in size and comfort. One of the bedrooms had a single and a crib (we thought it was 2 beds), but the bed was comfortable. The third bedroom with a trundle bed is best suited for a child as the mattress was thin and uncomfortable for an adult. However, if you are traveling with small children, this is an ideal place! There is a lovely park and fresh garden market within walking distance that children would love. The Wellington West neighborhood has many unique and charming shops/pubs within walking distance of the condo. The TV only displayed 6 channels (3 in each language) but the Olympics were on, so it was all we needed! Our stay for the week was comfortable and would recommend this property to all who are traveling to the Ottawa/Gatineau area.

Owner's Response: We are glad you found the location convenient and the house well equipped. Just to correct, the second bedroom with the crib has a full size double bed. The third bed is a single that does go out into a King when more room is needed. Although we have never had complaints before about the King trundle bed, we will make sure to add a foam topper to increase comfort.

Super Ottawa holiday in super rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Ottawa, discovering the city with the beautiful buildings and parks, friendly people and super shops and restaurants. This is a place where we could live ourselves!

We enjoying our stay in the house, which is by far one of the most comfortable and nicest houses that we have ever rented during our past holidays (France, Croatia, San-Francisco, Los Angeles, ….). Much space, clean, all comfort available, quite environment, city centre easy reachable via bus (bus station @ 5min walk). Thank you Vicky, for providing help and being professional and friendly during our stay.

Small remark: if you could find a solution for eliminating the need to bring own towels, it would make the stay the best of the best!

We have made a good choice in selecting your place to stay for our Ottawa holiday! Thanks again!

Spacious and comfortable rental

This three bedroom home is a great place to stay in Ottawa. The location is central, and 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.

Comfortable, well equiped, like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay here, it really made our experience in Ottawa all the better. 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.
