Although the rains rolled into town with us, we were thankful to have such a beautiful comfortable home to come back to each day. The house is bright, clean, and has all the amenities you could need or want (and then some), including a BBQ and pool. Unfortunately we had only one brief window of opportunity to use the pool and it had dropped several degrees after a week of rain. If we had known we would have that window we would have asked Stan to put the pool heater on. We went in anyway, determined to enjoy it at least once before the next thunderstorm! I LOVED the sheltered porch where I had my tea each morning, rain or shine (well, mostly rain). So peaceful. Easy walk to mall, grocery store, beer/LCBO, restaurants. Easy transit to downtown. We didn't use the front bedroom so traffic noise wasn't an issue for us. Will definitely stay again if we return to Ottawa (although never for Canada Day again, yikes!).
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Emily's apartment in Wellington Village. The village itself has wonderful shops and restaurants within walking distance. We especially enjoyed the fire-baked bagels on the corner and the Italian coffee shops and deli. Three times during our stay we took the easy bus ride into downtown Ottawa, which involved only one direct bus. The apartment was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. A heads up for anyone with mobility issues that it is an upstairs apartment. Thanks, Emily, we'll be back!
