About Linda Price-Bennett
I love to spend time in the downtown, lower town and Market areas of Ottawa. I regularly visit the National Art Gallery, take in performances at the National Arts Center and frequent the museums, shops, galleries and restaurants in the area. I enjoy the area and spend so much of my leisure time downtown Ottawa, that I wanted to have a vacation home there! I looked for over a year and a half for just the right place- and i have found it! Spacious, great kitchen and wonderful bathroom with a rain shower and soaker tub, hardwood floors, a private garden and BBQ area, bright, clean, quiet, safe, and close to everything... I frequently travel and have used VRBO to find incredible accommodations (just like mine) all over the world.

Why Linda Price-Bennett chose Lower Town
This location is ideal for easy access to all the places that are really worth visiting while in Ottawa. I love that we do not need a car at all, that we can walk everywhere. We can even walk to the liquor store and the grocery store! Public Transit is easily available and can take us all over the city.
What makes this Apartment unique
I most enjoy the proximity to so many interesting places and things. I love that our home, though right in the middle of such a thriving area of the city, is quiet and safe. What I like best about our home is that it is bright, open and inviting. The kitchen is great for making snacks or full meals while at the same time, superb restaurants are less than three blocks from home (if we don't feel like cooking). The living room is spacious and the hard wood floors are beautiful. The bathroom and the kitchen have just been redone and are really great. I love the large, quiet bedroom and the comfy bed and the quiet enclosed court yard and BBQ area. When we are in the apartment it is so quiet and peaceful that it is difficult to imagine that we are in the center of a bustling city. I love that we can walk everywhere we want to go!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
I stayed in this apartment for a month while on contract with the federal government and loved it! The apartment was very comfortable and well set up with everything I needed. It is in a quiet residential area and about a 10 minute walk to the parliament buildings and very close to the By Ward Market.
The owner was responsive and very helpful. I will definitely stay again in the future.
Best location for downtown Ottawa
I showed there the place was clean, all that I needed was my suitcase. Cable TV internet washer and dryer were also available. The king size bed was very comfortable. The kitchenette had a dishwasher and appliance needed to cook my self a nice meal after work.
I surely recommend this to all. Note If you are military this is a prime location for IR. It is also close from the Market, Rideau center and all what Ottawa downtown has to offer.
Lovely apartment, bad service
We really enjoyed the apartment, it was lovely and clean and close to the Byward Market area. There are two church/mission's across the road which you have to walk past (one on either side of the road) to get to the apartment so I wouldnt reccomend this for woman travelling alone, especially if you're walking home after dark. Unfortunately our experience has been tainted by the fact that we havent recieved our security deposit back. Its now nearly a month since our stay and I have not been able to reach Linda by email or phone, im actually hoping she will see this review and get in touch.
Wonderful Location and Apartment
What a great location to Ward Market! We did not rent a car, and had a wonderful time walking to shops, pups and other cultural places. As our son and his wife live close by, and have a new born and a 2 yr old, we decided it would be nice to have our own place to go "home" to. This apartment was a wonderful refuge. We didn't mind the kitchen being downstairs as ate most of our meals at local pubs and with our son's family. The apartment was clean and everything was in working order. We will definitely rent it again.
Cozy and elegant
My family of four stayed at this Murray St apartment for Canada Day weekend 2013. It was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Nice linens, great decor and interesting use of space. The kitchen is downstairs off the master bedroom which was good so that we could make coffee in the a.m. without waking our daughters! The owner and her assistant were very professional and made the process simple. So no surprises, the apartment is in a section of town that while very convenient to downtown, (about 10 mins walk to Byward Market area) is being gentrified so has rough pockets. However we felt safe and really enjoyed our stay. Canada Day in Ottawa is a must do- it was fantastic!
Very nice place but could be better
First time I rent an appartement instead of an hotel room and the experience was very good but not without little problems. I rented an appartement because I have a 6 months old kid and we had to have a freezer and refridgerator to store his food. Also a kitchen was great to save money on the restaurant.
We had little problem with the room not being cleaned at first but I called Linda, the manager, and she fixed that right away.
An other thing that disapointed us a little is the fact that the kitchen is in the basement. It's not a big problem but for us it made things a little more complex considering the baby.
The refridgerator/freezer are the small ones use in bar and they are not very efficient it was way to long to get the food of our baby to get frozen. But we lived with it.
Linda doesn't accept Paypal but she should because I didn't like sending my credit card information per email.
The place is very calm and quiet. You can also go at the Byward market on foot witch is great.
The AC was also a great plus to get away from the heat at night.
Overall we loved are stay and Linda was very helpfull when we had questions or requests.
So rent with confidence if you can live with the little problems I pointed out.
