About Heather Davis
Heather is a scientist and Mark is a retired fire-fighter. Although not a professional architect, Heather loves to design houses as a hobby. This is the second house that she has designed and had built on the Ottawa River. We lived in the unit that is now available for rent for more than a year while the rest of the house was built, and now it gives us a lot of pleasure to share it with our guests.
Heather Davis purchased this house in 2011
Why Heather Davis chose Ottawa
Mark is an Ottawa native and Heather has lived here for more than 20 years. We both love this wonderful city that despite a population of 1 million maintains its small town charm. We love living on the water and are continually amazed by the beautiful views, which can be enjoyed from many vantage points on the large and private property. It is truly a country oasis in the city.
What makes this house unique
The large fire-pit next to the river.
Waterfront yet near to the city.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved our stay at Dunrobin Shores. The suite was well equipped with all the necessities needed for a comfortable vacation....the rooms were beyond comfortable. The decor was so lovely.... nice to have satellite TV so we could have jazz music playing while we enjoyed the patios...the view is breathless and swimming great. Lots of levels to sit and have different views. The traffic on the Ottawa river was wonderful with all the sailboats and canoes and pleasure boats....really felt you were in a summer setting...we took a day trip to Gatineau Hills and enjoyed the view from the other side. Sunsets and sunrises were spectacular. Ottawa shopping was close by and a great grocery and LCBO in a plaza very near. Owners were on property and they were delightful....did not see much of them but when we did it was a nice visit. Really a private setting in luxurious accommodations.....best summer getaway we have had.....did not want to come home!!!!
