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 view.

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!!!!

What a great location for our vaction!

  • 5 of 5
Right from the moment I found this property on the web I had expectations - high expectations for a great stay and believe it or not they were exceeded when we arrived there and saw the accommodation. The view of the water brings a sense of tranquillity to the location. Close to the city but far enough away to feel like a cottage. Don't get me wrong - this is not a cottage! All the comforts of home were provided and we really couldn't think of a thing that was missing. We found enough kitchen equipment for the meals we wanted to prepare and even extra towels for swimming. High quality bedding and towels were appreciated. Our hosts were great and the property looks better than the photos on the web. Totally awesome - can't wait to get back again for a longer stay.

2 Blonds and a Limey

  • 5 of 5
The listing photos accurately show the rentals appearance,the property was well maintained and the owners very helpful when asked for advise.
This property is in a quite secluded area and a vehicle is a must.
A short drive from Ottawa and its many attractions with plenty
of small villages in the surrounding area.
The owners have a very friendly dog ''Oscar'' who is very easy to get along with.
I would recommend this property and will return in the near future.

The perfect retreat we were looking for!!

  • 5 of 5
The scenic location and the complete amenities far exceeded our expectations. The days began by waking up to a perfect view of the river and sunsets were enjoyed by the large fire with friends and family. We can't wait to come back again next year!

Stunning Executive Waterfront Property

  • 5 of 5
What a gorgeous property on a very large landscaped lot. It is exactly as the pictures show. I particularly enjoyed my coffee in the mornings by the water and it is just as beautiful at night. We particularly enjoyed the fire pit in the evenings and it is very quiet. The property is exceptionally clean and equipped with absolutely everything that you will need during your stay. We had a number of visitors. Some golfed at the Copperdale Golf Club (very inexpensive and nice course) and others went to the beach in Constance Bay, We will definetly book this place again. Thank you Mark and Heather.

Fantastic riverside home

  • 5 of 5
The property was a fantastic place on the riverside.
It had great views of the water and across to the other side; appearing more like a lake. The water direction changed from flowing one way to the other and was sometimes shrouded in mist.
The house itself was vast with large windows in the living room and two of the bedrooms which allowed for some wonderful views. We took some fantastic photographs of sunrises with reflections in the water.
This was a great place to stay with everything you could think of being provided. There was even several teas and coffees.
The home was well maintained and clean.
Heather and Mark were friendly and even provided us with a map so we could find our way around Ottawa and the surrounding area which was very kind of them. Heather provided us with good directions from the airport which were a godsend as coming from England we would have got lost.
My sister and father who travelled with me were blown away by the size of the rooms and the spectacular views across the water, and the large amount of outside seating areas. We were in Canada to trace our family tree on our fathers side and staying here enabled us to see a lot of the area where our grandfather would have lived which was great.
We would highly recommend it if you want to stay in a really lovely area in a huge property where you can just relax and enjoy the fantastic views. Ottawa is not far away and there is a countryside drive into it which is worth travelling on. You can cross bridges to the other side of the river and spend time in the French speaking part of Canada.

Wonderful white Christmas!

  • 5 of 5
We had the very good fortune of staying a week at Heather and Mark’s home. We were looking for an attractive place that was not too far from Ottawa, but would give us the opportunity to enjoy a white Chritsmas in Canada (a dream come true for our French family !) It was a 45 min ride to the city ,and it would take us 20min to get to a grocery store. But we were right on the river ( which looks more like a lake) and got to enjoy the countryside at its best !

Upon our arrival, Heather warmly greeted us with a tour of the home which was exactly as pictured. It was bright, stylishly decorated and very well equipped with everything we needed. This even included shampoo, conditioner, shower soap, kitchen cleaning supplies, laundry cleaning supplies, etc. And so many towels ! That makes you feel at home, not in a renting place.

The location was perfect especially for our needs. With a newborn and a toddler, we needed a place where we would be able to enjoy the winter time from the inside. The living room, with is big fire place and its huge TV was just that, and thanks to all the French doors, we were able to watch the lake from Sunrise to Sunset. The view really is stunning.

I can’t describe the feeling you have when you are back from a walk on the frozen lake and you get to enjoy some time in the sauna, before having a drink near the fire place… Cherry on the top : we built a snowman and as we were back in the warm living room, a deer came to eat the carrot that was its nose. My daughter was delighted !

Heather and Mark treated our little Cécile with 2 adorables Teddy Bears as a special welcome, and they made sure we had all we needed all the time. It was really nice to know that we could count on them. And in the same time, we barely saw them and really felt that we had the place for ourselves. They invited us for a drink on Christmas Eve and also made sure we could enjoy the firepit on the terasse before we had to leave their little paradise. We were glad to have the privilege to spend some time with them.

If you are looking for a vacation rental in the Ottawa area, this is your place. Thanks a lot Heather and Mark, I really hope we’ll be able to come back for spring or summer.

Notes:
The propety is located on the Ottawa River, which is very wide at this point (about 2 km), so it appears much more like a lake. The river is excellent for boating - both power boats and sailing - the property has a dock but this is not suitable for mooring due to potential for very rough water conditions, but there is a marina 1 km further down the street. Swimming is excellent since there is very little current and the water is very warm during the summer months - a ladder at the end of the dock makes it easy to get in and out of the water. The water-front at the property is flat rocks, but not too far away is a large bay with a beautiful sand beach that is open to the public.
