About Gabriel and/or Karina

My wife, Karina and I (Gabriel) have a great family of 4 kids (Daniel, Nicholas, Mattina and Santiago) and live in Aylmer (a great place to live). Karina is a children educator and I am a Professional Land Surveyor from Quebec, but travel all over the world.

Gabriel and/or Karina purchased this condo in 2012

Why Gabriel and/or Karina chose Gatineau

Because of the excellent location and perfect surrounding. This property used to be a monastery and the new condo lot still has the old trees for monks to walk and meditate. The building is very well built (in concrete and brick) and the first floor, where the apartment is located, has high ceiling (10 feet). In addition, is noise free and always sunny.

What makes this condo unique

Walking distance to pubs, groceries stores, cinema, mall, restaurant, the Ottawa river, beaches, marina, etc., etc. In 10 minutes drive you are in the country side, close to the Gatineau Park (20 minutes drive), with lakes and small mountains. In summer you can bike from the condo to downtown Ottawa or Hull by using the beautiful bike path along the Ottawa river. In winter, the hills and mountain from the huge Gatineau Park are at 15 minutes away for skiing and winter sports.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Notre séjour a été très agréable et votre Condo est vraiment un lieu facile à vivre". Un appartement très joli dans un endroit exclusive du village d'Aylmer [municipalité de Gatineau] (près de la ville d'Ottawa - même pas 20 minutes de route).

Great walking community

  • 3 of 5

Condo is bright and building was very quiet.

Coffee was listed as being supplied, but was not.

Hand soap and some cleaning supplies depleted.

Needs better pillows in bedrooms.

Location to buses excellent in the lovely town of Aylmer.

Owner's Response: It is a shame that you marked 3 stars out of 5. I was always there to respond to any requests. Basically this is not a 5 star hotel, and the most import thing is that cleaning supplies are not part of the deal. The essential of an apartment for vacation is to be extremely clean and comfortable, and this is my main interest for the guests.

Cute condo in Aylmer

  • 4 of 5

Lovely and clean, the beds were very comfortable.

A few small details missing, however, overall a great place to stay and the pros far outweighed the few niggling cons. Would definitely stay here again.

Missing a few essentials such as a hairdryer, only had 3 mismatched wine glasses and only one bedside table (missing a lamp). Also took us a while to find the rubbish bin! Perhaps Gabriel you could mention where it is in your info pack..☺

Great facilities, new building

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable. We enjoyed the fitness room. The parks around Aylmer are first-rate and recommended for families with children. Grocery stores and restaurants are all within walking distance. We spent a lot of time in Ottawa, which was about a 20-30 minute drive away depending on traffic. I would stay here again.

Nice spot. Felt like a home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Gatineau was very nice. Gabriel was a pleasure to work with and was waiting for us at the condo when we arrived. The condo was clean and had plenty of space for our family of 4 to sit back and relax. The instructions were all very clearly laid out for the TV and the check out. We didn't have any questions.

The condo was close to all amenities and walking distance to many shops and restaurants, including Tim's. We ate breakfast at the condo every day and packed a lunch most days. We brought our own cooler because once we were in Ottawa sightseeing, it was a bit of a hike back to the condo. We enjoyed a dinner at Vieux Duluth. Nice sized portions at a reasonable price- good value. Otherwise we had dinner in the city.

My only recommendation for the condo would be to have fans provided for the bedrooms. Unfortunately it was very hot during our stay and the AC in the main area did not quite reach the bedrooms. Fans would have been a nice to have.

We would stay at this condo again and next time spend more time exploring the area near the condo and the hiking trails in the park.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I really had an enjoyable stay. Gabriel was pretty responsive to my questions, and to get a hold of, if there were any questions. The drive time to downtown Ottawa was as advertised (~20 mins). There was lots of room in the condo, and had more space than we needed, but that's okay!
