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.

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.

Terrific Place!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice rental! Awesome location downtown Ottawa, walking to distance to all the sights. It had everything we needed and was very charming, clean and comfortable. The owner was great and was a wealth of knowledge about the area and what to check out. We really enjoyed our stay!

Lovingly and meticulously cared for apartment

  • 5 of 5

This old house (108 yrs) is very beautifully maintained, comfortable, and safe. Parking is off street behind house. You do feel part of a family with the owner, Alan (a delight to meet) upstairs. A few creaking boards and footfalls from above--but they were amazingly conscientious. We are walkers, and the house is perfectly located to walk everywhere we wanted to see. Alan provided map and tips. Kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of coffee, teas, and bottled water. Dishes and pans in great shape.

Excellent location, host and apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Alan was a kind and thoughtful host-as well as the beautiful apartment he provided,he was very helpful in many regards.My husband was in need of a doctor on our arrival in Ottawa and Alan was able to provide information which resulted in a very swift visit to a doctor and resultant pharmacy!

The apartment is very comfortable, with charming touches of both history and modern furnishings.

It is also very private in that Alan resides upstairs but is unobtrusive,communication being available by email and phone.The kitchen is well set up with all you would need in facilities and utensils,Alan generously provided bottled water, tea and coffee and various other groceries.

The apartment is within walking distance of everything you need-the historical centre of Ottawa, supermarket, restaurants and laundromat-as Alan commented " all just two blocks away,"

This apartment comes highly recommended, it made our stay in Ottawa perfect!

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.
