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.

Great location, very clean, very helpful host!

  • 5 of 5

6 day trip to Ottawa with my 79 year old dad to see the sights.

Location - sights: excellent, easy walking distance to all the sights we wanted to see which was important for my dad (War Museum, Archives, Supreme Court, Parlaiment Buildings, War memorial, Chateau Laurier, Rideau Locks, Museum of History and the tulips at Commissioners Park).

Location - amenities: easy walk to restaurants, grocery stores and parks.

Accommodation: exactly as described, very clean and had everything we needed for our 6 day stay. Little extras like city map, air purifier, umbrellas, chairs on front porch and cold water in the fridge were nice!

Host: Alan was very prompt and professional on-line during the booking process including providing an on-line map of the area relative to the accommodation. This was helpful with our planning.

When we arrived Alan was very helpful and knowledgeable, gave great restaurant advice, checked in on-line from time to time to see if we needed anything and how our trip was going.

Alan was accommodating with our check out time and met us to say goodbye.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Great place to stay. Very comfortable, spacious and clean. Bed was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the accommodation consisting of a well stocked one bedroom apartment with its own entrance and parking. It was immaculately clean and supplied with everything we needed for our stay. Alan was very quick to reply to our emails before our visit, and very keen to provide us with helpful information about the area (restaurants, stores etc) as well as things to see and do in Ottawa. Overall we give it a five star rating!

Great place for an Ottawa stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is nicely and freshly decorated and ideal location if you want to enjoy Ottawa without needing to have/use a car. 15 Minutes to Sparks Mall for eating, 25 minutes to Byward Market fro drinking and more eating. Also good for all the tourist attractions (Parliament, Museums etc). We have been coming to Ottawa for 20 years and found this perfect for our needs as a city break stay. Thank you Alan!

Alan's apartment was spotlessly clean, the location was excellent for our purposes, with parking.

  • 5 of 5

Communication with Alan was excellent, & he greeted us on our arrival. All the expected amenities were included, & everything worked well. It was comfortable, & tastefully decorated. We are architecture fans & it was a pleasure to stay in a house of that vintage which had been so successfully maintained & restored.

Great Little Get Away. Convenient and clean. Comfy bed and Parking in the Back.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here while visiting in Ottawa and would look at coming back in the future. The house is not large, but the rooms are open and comfortably fit the two of us. Nice island kitchen with seating and a sitting area that has a sofa bed (did not use). It is close to amenities and walking distance to China Town. Off street parking(in rear) was greatly appreciated as parking in Ottawa can be a challenge. Older quiet neighbourhood.

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.
