Overview

Quebec City Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 BR Condo (sleeps 4 adults & 1 child)

As one of our guests once said about this condo, 'charming' is an understatement! Very cozy, spacious and nicely furnished loft, about 1,000 sq.ft. within the city walls. Fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer. Lots of character with stone and brick walls, pine floors, cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, on third and top floor of building. Queen size sofa bed in living room. Bedroom on mezzanine with queen size bed, walk-in closet, computer desk and chair. Cable and unlimited Wi-Fi Internet. This natural light-filled corner unit with direct view on the Laurentians, Esplanade Park and the National Assembly is only steps away from the Plains of Abraham and close to everything.

Comme le disait une cliente : 'charmant', c'est bien peu dire pour décrire ce ravissant appartement. Magnifique et spacieux, ce loft d'environ 90 mètres carrés (1 000 pieds carrés) est aménagé sur deux étages avec un cachet authentique et situé à l’intérieur des murs du Vieux-Québec. Cuisine tout équipée, lave-linge et sèche-linge. Murs de pierre et de brique, planchers en pin, plafond cathédrale, poutres apparentes sous les combles, au troisième et dernier étage de l'immeuble. Divan-lit grande taille au salon. Chambre en mezzanine avec grand lit, walk-in, table et fauteuil d’ordinateur. Câble et Internet sans fil (accès wi-fi illimité). Cette unité en coin lumineuse offre une vue sur les Laurentides, le parc de l’Esplanade et l’Assemblée nationale. Elle est située à quelques pas des Plaines d’Abraham et à proximité de tout.

Ce bâtiment patrimonial a été construit en 1834-1835 pour un riche marchand du nom de Henry Atkinson. Le parement extérieur est en grès de Sillery-Cap-Rouge, matériau employé pour ériger une partie des fortifications de la ville de Québec ainsi que les murs de la Citadelle et qui a servi à la réfection de la porte Saint-Jean en 1938.

About Property Owner

Acquiring this property five years ago was nothing short of a dream come true. The condo is located in a heritage building that dates back to 1834-35, when it was built for a wealthy businessman by the name of Henry Atkinson. The exterior is made of the Sillery-Cap-Rouge sandstone that now forms part of the Québec fortifications and the walls of the Citadel and that was used to restore the Saint-Jean Gate in 1938.

Property Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Property Owner chose Quebec City

The property is very comfortable, charming and the location couldn't be better. Experiencing Québec City and the surroundings is really worth the trip. I look forward to welcoming you here. Until then, please check out my Reviews section for the numerous positive comments received from guests over the last five years.

What makes this condo unique

Being just steps to everything while enjoying the privacy of this property overlooking L'Esplanade Park is something you will truly value. And who wouldn't like waking up to the sound of horses' hooves on the cobblestone, or seeing a groundhog during a morning walk on the Plains of Abraham just around the corner! In addition, those who like to stay connected while getting a breath of fresh air will be happy to know that there are Wi-Fi hot spots for free Internet access in multiple sectors of the Plains of Abraham.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We can't BELIEVE how fast the month went! Your apartment is just SO perfect for the visitor to Québec, Odette. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay here and experience this amazing city! We really felt at home here and everyone treated us with so much kindness. It was AMAZING.

Heaven in Vieux Quebec

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with the condo from the moment we walked in, we felt at home. Pictures of the condo do not do it justice. It was walking distance to everything happening in the old city during the music festival. It was the perfect Old Quebec Experience. We would highly recommend it.
It was a phenomenal experience. Just what we had been hoping for since we were staying for a full month.

Our stay in Quebec City

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Quebec City. We were here to visit our daughter who is here for the year. The apartment was perfect, everything we needed to feel at home. Location couldn't have been better with proximity to attractions, shopping and out of city access. Despite the cold weather outside, the apartment was always warm and welcoming. We would have absolutely no reservation about recommending this as a place to stay.

Comfortable Stay

  • 3 of 5
The apartment was very comfortable but had a few changes in the decor. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The apartment and the building were very clean and the kitchen was stocked with everything thing you need to cook, even spices! The location was wonderful with a view of the horse carriages and a green area and Parliament. Odette was very helpful to address any questions. We were in between Parliament and the Hotel Frontenac which provided lovely walks during the day or night. The stairs were be a bit of a problem at night as the bathroom is downstairs and as seen in the photo, no handrail.

Owner's Response: When Beverly arrived with her husband and saw the place, here's what she said: "This is even nicer than in the pictures!" The few changes we made do make the place even more attractive.

My husband and I found both the condo and the owner to be delightful. We developed an easy and direct communication and once we were on site, we found everything to be as was advertised and expected. the condo was tastefully decorated, completely outfitted, cozy, comfortable and a marvelous location to access the Old City.

Wonderful stay in Old Quebec

  • 5 of 5
The stay in Old Quebec was fantastic. Having such a beautiful place to be call home made wandering around one of the most romantic and architectural cities that I have been to that much more special. The apartment had beautiful views and the sound of the horse drawn carriages. clip-clopping on the cobblestones, coming in through the windows was perfect. Our girls were so impressed they spent the first 20 minutes we were there doing a photo shoot of how beautiful everything was designed and decorated. It was conveniently located to both sites to see during the day and the fun restaurants and nite spots. I would return in a heart beat. Very special place.

Owner's Response: Another family totally satisfied and pleased with our property and its location. For ski lovers, Mont Ste-Anne is only 30 minutes away and offers shuttle bus service just a short walk from our condo. Families with children will be well served by two other ski resorts even closer to home: Relais-Lac-Beauport and Stoneham are a mere 15 minute drive away and perfect if you prefer the more family-oriented ski resorts.

There is a lot to do in Québec City: outdoor ice skating at Place d'Youville or on the newly opened ice rink on the Plains of Abraham, also a nice place for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and rollerskating. And in the close surroundings, there is petanque, archery, hebertism and treetop games, hang-gliding and skydiving. Other attractions and amenities include: outdoor public swimming pool, waterpark, bicycle rental, horse-drawn carriages (at your doorstep); the Image Mill, boat cruises, etc. Enjoy a bicycle ride on one of the many cycle paths in and around Québec City. Even take your bicycle on the Québec-Lévis ferry and follow the path along the St. Lawrence River to capture the most spectacular views of Québec, stop by the marina to quench your thirst and have lunch or pick a place for picnic and enjoy the view. Montmorency Falls and Île d'Orléans are two must-see places. For more information, you should visit the Tourist Bureau, located at 12 rue Ste-Anne, right across from Château Frontenac.

Notes:
The location couldn't be better. Wander in the streets of Old Québec and discover the fortifications, the illustrious Château Frontenac, the famous Plains of Abraham and Place-Royale. In the green belt surrounding the city, the impressive Montmorency Falls and peaceful Île d’Orléans are other scenic attractions that you may want to visit. Outdoor activities abound in the region of Quebec and include hiking, alpine skiing, river sports, mountain climbing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and fauna observation. The area has several parks which make perfect playgrounds for outdoor enthusiasts. In winter, everything becomes enchanted and the snowy Old Québec looks like fairyland! Open the old pupil desk in the living room and dig out an abundance of maps and guidebooks to help you get started on all the fun things to do during your stay.
