About Carol Sweeney
We have lived in Quebec City for our 26 years of marriage and I am a Mother of six great kids. We have been sharing our little piece of Old Quebec while we are not using it since 2002. That is why our listing number has only 5 digits. We love it and I think you will too! We thank all of our past guests and also our future guests for helping us bring more people to Quebec City to enjoy "living like a local". If we do not still have your dates available then I hope we can help you in the future.
Carol Sweeney purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Carol Sweeney chose La Cité-Limoilou
The Old City allows you to step back to the year 1608 when Samuel Champlain came and founded what has become a UNESCO World Heritage site. When we first came to Quebec on our honeymoon we decided that this would be the place where we would set down roots and begin our family. Six children later the roots are too deep to pull up so it looks like the Old City is stuck with us!
What makes this Condo unique
The benefit of a stay at the Little Door is the '5-Factor' Leaving the front door and walking for about 5 minutes puts you in touch with some of the best restaurants in North America. You desire crepes for breakfast? Why not stop at Casse Crepe Breton and watch as they make them before you eyes stuffing them with fresh fruit... chocolate... and whip cream for those have been good boys during their travels! You want to discover antique shopping... no problem... 5 minutes on foot. You desire a lovely stroll along the St. Lawrence River... no problem... 5 minutes on foot. You would like to take in a pub and have a glass of wine or a pint of your choice... you got it ... 5 minutes! So, the '5-factor' is alive an well at the Little Door condo.

The location, the charm, the wonderful little door. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Our time was made magical by our stay at this property. Opening the "little" doors and emerging RIGHT ON THE RAMPARTS, was amazing. The space was perfect for 2 people, and you have everything you need. The kitchen could use a few more cooking implements, a spatula and some extra frying pans would be great, but overall the place was very well equipped. The character of the apartment was perfect, and the location is one that cannot be beat. Walk to everything, and through an area that is as charming as a postcard :) Book this place, you WILL NOT be sorry, and you WILL be dreaming of coming back.
Wonderful Location in Old Quebec
This is a great place at a great price at a great location in Old Quebec! Well worth it and we were able to walk everywhere we needed in Old Quebec from this nice little hole in the wall! Highly recommended!
Close to Old Towne Tours
This is a great place to stay for location in Old Quebec City. Very close to the tourist info center and the tour buses if you are not driving. Many restaurants and shops nearby. We stayed during a heat wave and the "little door" was cool since it's located a few steps down. We would stay again.
Comfortable living behind the hobbit door!
We loved Quebec City and our stay in this condo was perfect. Great bed, comfortable sofa and chair, well equipped kitchen, good shower and even a washer and dryer. But it is the location that made our first trip to Quebec city so great. Easy walking to all the old city. Highly recommend.
a wonderful spot!
The Sweeney’s were wonderful hosts! The apartment was exactly as described, very clean, charming, and in a fantastic location. Everything in the old city is a short walk away and there are pretty views right from the door. We hope to go back some time!!
Cozy grotto in a terrific location
The pictures accurately depict the atmosphere and decor of this grotto apartment. It's actually bigger than it appears. It was very warm, which is especially nice with the cold winter temps just outside the door. Ed met us promptly and showed us to the parking spot and the apartment. We didn't need anything else during our stay, so no need for additional communication with the owners. The unit was well stocked with kitchen supplies. The pull out sofa was serviceable for one adult. The big bed in the master was very comfortable. There was plenty of extra bedding and pillows. If the photos appeal to you and the idea of a subterranean apartment sounds cool, don't hesitate to stay in this fantastic location with attentive owners. Thank you!
P.S. Arriving to the old City is easy, but the sudden change from highway to narrow streets can be shocking. I imagine most people arrive in the afternoon, so there are lots of cars and pedestrians on the street, but we managed to do it without incident and Ed escorted us promptly.
Antique shops, street busking entertainment, horse drawn carriage rides, guided walking tours, bus tours, and much much more.
