Overview

About the property

Heart Of The City, Parking On Site, Walking Distance To All Major Attractions

Our fully furnished apartment with equipped kitchen welcomes you. Located within easy walking distance of Little Italy, Chinatown, Government offices, Rideau Canal, Rideau Centre, shopping and restaurants. Some of the perks are:

- private entrance at the back off the bedroom; shared entrance at the front of the house

- designated secure parking spot, within feet of your private back entrance

- if you do not have a car, do not rent one, you are literally within walking distance of all major attractions

- three blocks from the major transit route

- high speed wireless internet; television and cable (premium cable package with specialty channels, radio and music stations)

- iron and ironing board

- hair dryer

- coffee and tea are fully stocked; as are bottles of water in the fridge

- full grocery store, drug stores, and laundry facilities within blocks of your front door

- arrangements can be made for on site laundry facilities (they are in the basement) for stays of twelve nights or more

- front porch and private back deck

- queen sized bed

- lots of closet space

- there is also a full size pull-out sofa bed in the living room that can accommodate two additional guests: Living room has pocket doors that close and can act as a second bedroom

Our century home has always been owner occupied, and with that, always well maintained for living comfort. The house has two distinct apartments, yours on the first floor (ground floor), and mine on the second floor.

If you need directions, or assistance at any time, I am always available. If you prefer to see me only at check-in and check-out, easily accommodated.

Your business is desired, and everything YOU desire to make your stay great is my goal.

Whats the only negative of my place? Being a traveler its the one thing I always ask; the bathroom does not have a tub, its a shower.

This century home offers original floors, twelve foot high ceilings and mouldings they just do not make today! Ideal for a professional looking for the comforts of home while on business. And easily a perfect location for the traveler looking to explore Canada's National Capital region. No smoking. The floors are all original pine, so please shoes off at the door, especially high heels.

For stays of twelve nights or more, the washing machine and dryer which are located in the basement will be made available.

For stays of a MONTH or longer, the kitchen island can be removed and replaced by a kitchen table with four chairs (see photos for that option). Further, if desired, a writing table and chair can be placed for your use - this may be of particular importance to the business traveler seeking a work area.

BLUES FEST NOTE: Easy walk to the Blues Fest venue!!

About Alan

I like travelling, and when I cannot travel, meeting new people from around the world is great. The house is a duplex, and I live upstairs; which makes for easy access to me if you need anything. At the same time, like many travelers, I like my space, and respect yours of course.

Why Alan chose Ottawa

I like walking, and being right in the centre of the city allows for easy access to everything. Ten minute walk to the Blues Fest, or Little Italy or the location of many festivals held at Confederation Park. And of course, walking to Parliament on Canada Day, and watching the Snow Birds fly over the house that day is pretty cool too.

Immaculately clean and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

The downstairs apartment was immaculately clean. Alan was a wonderful host, who provided an enormous amount of information about the surrounding area: restaurants, transportation, museums, sights-to-see, etc.

Charming home with a genial host. Alan is very responsive and helpful and keeps the suite immaculate with extra touches such as make up wipes, coffee and tea and even cream in the fridge. Highly recommended!

Clean comfortable apartment just a few minutes from downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here with Alan. This is the cleanest rental you will find anywhere. The apartment is nicely decorated and well equipped, well suited to two persons and perfect for four if they are family. The bathroom is only accessed from the main bedroom, which Alan will warn you of as well if you have a party of four. Not any issue for us.

The location is great, a nice neighborhood just a few blocks from Chinatown and about 6 from downtown, Parliament and other big attractions. Alan is very friendly and will greet you on arrival and orient you for the area, whether you are looking for a restaurant or planning to shop to cook in, plus directions for any major attractions you want to visit.

This is easily the cleanest rental I have ever been in, including one run by my own family! Alan is meticulous and you will find all dishes, pots, pans, floors and surfaces spotless. Alan is also available pretty much anytime if you need anything and is a fantastic host all around.

In short, book this place now, it's great!

The apartment was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Ottawa! We live in Rockwood, ON and were visiting our daughter for her art exhibit opening at the Shenkman Arts Centre. The apartment was lovely. It had everything we needed and was tastefully decorated, thoughtfully equipped, with comfortable furniture and queen bed. The open concept kitchen/living room was perfect for hosting a special dinner we had for our daughter who lived only two blocks away. The location in a friendly neighborhood was perfect for any tourist activity we planned and having a personal parking space was a plus. The bedroom/bathroom is not big but we had plenty of space because of the careful layout and great closet/storage space available(loved all those wooden hangers!). The lovely wooden shutters and evening breezes helped keep it cool on the few hot days we had there. We enjoyed sitting on the sweet front porch watching all the dog walkers, too. Alan was the perfect host and so very kind about anything we asked for or needed. His attention to detail was much appreciated and his sense of humor was absolutely delightful. We would go back in a minute. As Alan says, Cheers!

Map

If you are renting a car, don't. The apartment is easy walking distance to everything in downtown Ottawa, be it Parliament, the By-Ward Market, China Town or Little Italy. The bicycle, jogging and walking paths along the river are also easy distances. There is a reason why many neighbours do not own cars on our street, you simply do not need one to get to most festivals and events held in Ottawa.
