PLEASE NOTE: This condo is ideal for large groups that would prefer to stay in one place rather than 3, 4, 5, or 6 hotel rooms.

The living/dining room, kitchen, and terrace are not able to accommodate the entire group of 8 people at one time. If your group plans to spend their days enjoying the city or attending meetings and using the condo for sleeping and light meals, this condo is ideal.

Close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I came to Ottawa for a family member's wedding and I rented two units in the building. There were 8 adults and 4 kids between the two units and all of us were very comfortable. There were tons of games/toys for the kids to use while in the unit, but the best part about the property was the proximity to downtown. We were able to walk everywhere! Also, the manager of the building was very helpful. The last day of our visit, it was pouring rain, and I did not have an umbrella. The manager left two umbrellas outside the door of our unit for us to use so that we didn't lose a day because of the weather. I would recommend this property to other vrbo travelers. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing my home for your stay in downtown Ottawa. The location is convenient for getting around Ottawa easily. I am glad that you found it to be that way for your large group. It is difficult to pack for children so that is why I have added toys, games and books for all ages. I am pleased that your family found benefit to them being there. Come again!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that my guest enjoyed his stay at my 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom downtown Ottawa condo. Ed had a large group (8) and they told me that they found the size of the condo to be comfortable for all, especially the 3 large queen bedrooms. All of them felt comfortable walking to the tourist attractions that are a short jaunt away~~~Parliament Hill, Rideau canal, Byward market...Ed is planning a return for this summer to enjoy Ottawa in a completely different way...see you soon!

Great Family memories!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rideau Mews! The apartment was clean and well stocked, just like the photos on the web site. Very centrally located to most of the Ottawa attractions. The trip was our Christmas gift to our 6 children and we wanted to skate the canal. We had a very mild winter, however, God gave us a special gift by having the canal open the day after we arrived in Ottawa! So thankful! The only reason I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 , is because we had trouble with the Netflix account. it wasn't loading properly. The movie would stop and reload every 3-4 minutes. That might have been a Netflix problem, I don't know. Would we stay at Rideau Mews again? Absolutely!

Owner's Response: This trip was very special for this family. We communicated for 2 months prior on many occasions as the parents wanted this experience to be perfect for their family. I was pleased to answer their questions leading up to their arrival. When they arrived, I decided to read constant updates of the skating conditions on the famous Rideau canal so that if it opened unexpectedly I could inform the family immediately. I was so happy for them that I was able to deliver the exciting news by text at 6:30 am the day after their arrival (and their last day in Ottawa so it was their only chance). They were skating shortly therafter and loved the experience (the canal isin close proximity to the condo ). I did receive a call from the husband on the Saturday night about the Netflix. I called Netflix immediately and I was informed it was their service that was having an issue. I advised the husband of this and told him how to reboot the system so that it would be ready as soon as Netflix fixed the issue. I know from my own personal experience that Netflix was not working for about 2 hours, however, I also provide a very extensive cable package, with appropriate programming for children too, so that the family would have another source of entertainment. I also include a basket of toys for all ages, plus games, dvd movies, books, magazines... I love that this family enjoyed their experience so much that they want to make it an annual experience and they have already told me they will be staying again next year. It can't get better than that for a host. .

March Break Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days. We have 6 people in our family - 2 adults and 4 teenagers. The pictures are an exact representation of what the home looks like. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and bath towels were lovely. Everything you could need was in this home in abundance, There is plenty of glass wear and cutlery and dishes. The kitchen is well stocked with everything that you might possibly need. The location is great in that it is within walking distance to so many things you might wish to do while in Ottawa. We walked to the Byward Market, The Parliament Building, The Mint, The Shopping Mall, the grocery store. Albeit the neighbourhood looks a little sketchy where the home is located I never felt unsafe. Catherine did an amazing job at responding quickly to all my emails and when we ran into an issue with Netflix - someone was at my door within minutes!! Talk about service. When I had a concern and texted Catherine I got a response immediately. That is very comforting and extremely professional. I would recommend staying here to anyone who wants to see Ottawa and not have to pay expensive hotel prices. It's great to have your own space and have a kitchen to prepare meals to cut down on costs. Parking was just a short walk away and was convenient. Someone was waiting there to meet us when we checked in and helped us with our things. She went over anything she thought we needed to know. Overall a very positive experience and I would recommend this home to anyone.

Ottawa Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for 2 nights. Everything was great, someone met with us at the agreed upon time, all 3 bedrooms were well appointed and everyone was comfortable. The small kitchen had abundant pots, pans, plates, glasses and cutlery. Lots of towels and clean. Most of the sites we went to see were within a 30 minute walk (we just parked our vehicles for the weekend) and there are lots of buses going by. We will be back.
