SPECTACULAR CHEF'S KITCHEN, Private Terrace, Sleeps 6, DOWNTOWN Ottawa!!!
average rating of 4.6904764 based on 42 reviews

Property was perfect for us. Two families of 3 each shared the space. Roomy and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Kitchen was great! So much so we didn't want to dine out. The communication with the host was very responsive and they definitely made sure we were well looked after. Location was convenient. The property is located on a busy street, but once inside the street noise disappears. Highly recommend and we'll be staying there again in the future.

Beautiful unit questionable area

  • 3 of 5

Absolutely loved the place. Beautiful and well-stocked. Well-maintained and clean and very much keeping the integrity of the historic building. Amazing kitchen, great ensuite. Towels need to be replaced with larger, thicker versions as almost out of place with other details. Sofa bed was, well, a sofa bed quality but came in handy for one young adult with us. The area is depressed, and I wouldn't feel safe alone outside in the dark as a woman but in day, walking distance to much and busses outside the door. We hope to return and will recommend.

Such a Perfect Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five rented this beautiful unit when we came to Ottawa for a visit with my son. It is beautiful! Comfortable, clean, and spacious. The outdoor patio was so nice after a long day of sightseeing, what a cute spot. We made breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen each day, I could not believe that kitchen! So nice. We did try Shawarma across the street as it was recommended on one of the other reviews, very good! Don't hesitate to rent this unit, you won't be disappointed.

Convenient to public transportation

  • 3 of 5

Convenient to the bus stop..just outside. Not as noisy outside as we expected. Much noisier within the building than we expected. Despite the gourmet kitchen, very disappointed to realize there was only a couple of stools to perch on in the kitchen, facing a dining room or even kitchen table at all.

Would we stay here again? Would we visit Ottawa again?....for sure !

Owner's Response: I am sorry that Carol did not enjoybher stay. It seems it was mainly because there was no table. This is an example of a situation whereeverything could hsve been resolved if I had been contacted while thr guest was there. Though there are five stools and a built in counter in the large kitchen here is a table too, however, it had been removed while the peoperty was painted and accidentally not put back, leaving a big gap where the table is usually kept. As soon as another guest following Carol's stay mentioned it upon their arrival the table was out back into its rightful place in a matter of minutes. I encourage open communication between my guests and me. I have it written in my arrival package and in my manual. I can fix virtually any issue that arises, usually in minutes. As you can read, this condo gets positive reviews. I feel badly that this guest did not feel the same, especially due to a human error that was easily fixable. The overwhelming majority of hosts want to help their guests enjoy their stay, myself included. .
