The apartment is part of a purpose-built duplex constructed in 1892 in a residential enclave bordered by the bank of the Rideau River (at Wurtemburg St.), St. Patrick St. and Cobourg St. The area is increasingly referred to as Macdonald Gardens because it encompasses the historic Macdonald Gardens Park.

This three-bedroom (floor plan available on request) flat is exceptionally clean and comfortable. There are new mattresses, linens and dishes, high-quality modern and vintage Scandinavian furnishings, and a fantastic 50' plasma flat-screen. The apartment has its own furnace, central air conditioning and on-demand hot water service.

I live in the downstairs apartment with my family and I work for the Parliament of Canada. Originally from Vancouver,British Columbia, we moved to Ottawa 10 years ago and love it.

I like to get places on foot and this location is perfect. The downtown CBD is 30 mins of walking. Governor General's and Rideau Falls are 30 mins in the other direction. Byward Market is 15 and New Edinburgh village is 15 the other way.

Je parle français. Yo hablo espagnol.

Allison purchased this apartment in 2011

We love the neighbourhood. Is is a quiet downtown suburb: close to everything with a mix of families and young professionals. We moved to this property in order to have some 'fun' gutting and renovating an old building.

This apartment is beautifully laid out with large dining and living rooms as well as three bedrooms nicely spaced out in separate corners of the apartment. The large, private, covered, balcony is a gorgeous place to sit and have a coffee or glass of wine in any weather. There are windows on every side of the house so the light is always streaming in somewhere.

Family wedding

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family stayed at this VRBO when we were in Ottawa for a family wedding. There were 5 adults and two 1 year old twins in our party. First of all, the bedrooms are spaced so that there was privacy for the adults. Secondly, the apartment was clean, well appointed, and all on one level, which was ideal for the babies. Thirdly, basic food items were supplied, as well as fruit, milk, bread and juice. Allison could not have done more to make
our stay better. She provided us with two playpens, a double stroller, numerous baby toys, high chair, and booster seat. She also provide baby dishes and was able to direct us to a licensed day care provider to care for the boys while we were all at the wedding reception. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone traveling with children.

Fantastic Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
As a group of university students and young business professionals, we had an amazing time at this property. Before the booking, Allison was very responsive with our availability inquiries. The property was located in a quite and nice neighborhood, that is close to grocery stores, city centre, Gatineau provincial park, and casino. The property has a very nice layout, with a large dinning room and living room. The beds are very comfortable. There are many thoughtful items provided to us, including juice, pizza, eggs, toasts, clean towels, etc. The place is clean and organized. The separate entrance was also great because we came back usually past midnight. Allison was responsive throughout our stay for any questions.

As young professionals, we have a high standard for accommodation, and this place definitely exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend for a nice weekend getaway!

Perfect for kids

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week with our 3 year old and 9 month old after spending 5 days in a Montreal hotel. Allison's apartment was truly a home away from home for us. It was stocked with all the necessities for kids, including a play kitchen (my daughter called this the house with two kitchens), high chair, double stroller, books and toys. The location is close enough to the major attractions that we could walk (but far enough that the stroller was needed for the 3 yr old). The apartment was clean, comfortable and big enough that we could host visiting friends. The next time we're in Ottawa we'll certainly try to stay here again.

Great Stay in Ottawa

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 nights here with our 2 kids (3 and 5) and it was great. The apartment was well setup with everything we needed and lots of little extras like toys and booster seats. Would stay here again without a 2nd thought.

Excellent home base for downtown Ottawa

  • 5 of 5
We booked this property for a little getaway with our adult children. The apartment was spotlessly clean and quirkily decorated, which we loved. It was a comfortable place to call 'home' while we explored downtown Ottawa on foot and on bicycle.

Allison left the kitchen well-stocked for us and was quick to respond to emails.

There were 2 grocery stores within easy walking distance, as was the best gelato shop in Byward Market (Piccolo Grande).

The only downside was just one bathroom, but between the four adults who stayed there, we didn't have any problem making it work.
