Impeccably renovated apartment in Ottawa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed in this amazing apartment for three nights. We thoughouly enjoyed discovering all the interesting details in the completely renovated apartment. The owner, Catherine, was very responsive to questions before our stay and the greeter was gracious enough to settle us into the apartment...even when we were a bit delayed in our arrival. Catherine has the rental so thoughtfully stocked with anything you may need during the stay. She also provided detailed instructions for check-in and a binder full of useful information on the apartment and surrounding area. Our kids were thrilled with the bunk room and the "Harry Potter" cupboard under the stairs. This is a unique property with a very professional owner.

Owner's Response: Thank you Melissa for your wonderful comments, but more importantly, I am thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your stay so much. Though the condo has an adult feel and decor, I have created to spaces (the Harry Potter room and the bunk bedroom) with children in mind. I understand the complexities of traveling as a family and finding accommodations that can please everyone. I am so grateful my guests are enjoying my efforts. Please feel free to visit again! Regards, Catherine

Manque de finition

  • 3 of 5

L'appartement est propre, ben organisé et possède de beaux meubles. Il est pratique d'y entrer avec un code reçu par message texte de la propriétaire. Rapide et efficace. Le lit sous l'escalier fut très populaire auprès de mon enfant!

Par contre, l'appartement a besoin de travaux de finition: moulures mal posées, taches sur les murs, et un gros trou au plafond dans la douche. De plus, les locataires qui nous ont précédé auraient perdu la manette de l'air climatisé, ce qui la rendait impossible à arrêter et même à régler. J'ai dû dormir sous l'escalier puisqu'il faisait très froid au deuxième étage. Autre point négatif: je n'ai pas reçu le remboursement du dépôt de sécurité avant 17 jours, alors qu'on nous assure sur le contrat à signer qu'il sera remboursé maximum dans les 7 jours suivant notre départ. J'ai dû écrire plusieurs courriels afin de relancer la propriétaire pour obtenir mon remboursement.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased the guest enjoyed the 2 story, 2 1/2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, and that she found the location ideal for sightseeing. The guest was not aware that the refund could only be sent back the same way it was received but we got it figured out and eventually my French-speaking husband walked her through the process of getting her refund deposited. I believe that the minor issues this guest had all related to a communication issue. There was no hole in the ceiling, btw, it is a fan vent (a new, modern fan). I am pleased, though, that this guest agreed she would come back again. And, I would be happy to host her again too!

Great place to stay in Ottawa

  • 5 of 5

Upon entry I exclaimed, "this is just like the pictures". Bright,cheerful colours, creative use of space and clean,clean clean this condo was just the ticket. We enjoyed the neighbourhood, everything we needed within walking distance, groceries, restaurants, galleries we 15 minutes on foot. The local bus service which stopped outside the door made the rest of the city accessible.

Appreciate the timeliness of the owners response to email, we were well met on arrival and the need for additional supplies was filled instantly. We recommend this property to those who are looking for a clean , well cared-for character building in the heart of the Capitol.

Warm, cosy and fun

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was a great little spot in a convenient downtown location. Friends and I shared a wonderful Christmas in this bright, vibrant and decorative lodge-like apartment. It was clean and tidy, and the beds were very comfortable.

The apartment was well equipped with kitchen utensils and an extensive range of wine, whisky, beer and port glasses added a little extra flare. Plenty of board games were available: perfect for cold ottawa winter nights.

Effort into the interior design was evident and added a homely feel.

We all enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this fun little loft to anyone. I would happily stay here again!

Thanks again!

Clean, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

This very centrally located appartment was perfect for a family of 4 with 2 teens. Since 6 actual sleeping spots are available, the appartment allows for flexible sleeping arrangements. Having two full and modern bathrooms was wonderful. The only discomfort stemmed from not being able to lower the apartment temperature at night, even though we experimented with the directions in the manual. We did not go as far as phone the assistant for help, perhaps this issue could have been resolved.

The eating and living room space were tight, nevertheless the appartment is cheerful, colourful, equipped with lots of family games, and the tiny but very well equipped kitchen is stocked with lots of dry goods and even some groceries for cooking. All clean, well-maintained.

The area is nice to walk around, and we walked to and from the parliament hill for the outdoors New Years Eve celebration. Big bonus not having to drive to major attractions.

We'd definitely recommend this place.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased our guests enjoyed their stay and love the location. It is always reassuring when actual guest say they would come again and recommend others do as well. We are aware that there are some improvements that need to be addressed and that is exactly what we are doing in the next few days. There will be a lot more cupboard space and seating in the kitchen and a bigger usable floor area in the living room. We really do listen to our guests and respond to their concerns immediately. We wished that these guests would have told us they were too hot because it was an easy fix but we have also decided that we are going to add individual thermostats for every room in the condo. So if one guest likes it cool for sleeping and another prefers it hot, then they will have a choice. This will be done this month.

A Great Alternative to Hotels in Downtown Ottawa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the condo over the holiday and found it great. It is well located in the heart of Ottawa. Both the owner and support staff were great to work with. It was clean and tidy on arrival and they even had the cupboards stocked with spices, etc. - making it easy to cook a quick meal. While the condo is on a main street in Ottawa, both bedrooms were amazingly quiet; we could walk to all local attractions easily. We would happily stay there again!

The third sleeping space is a single bed in the "Harry Potter" room (see description below). There is also a fold down sofa in the living room (suitable for 1 adult or 2 children). The home sleeps 9 people in total. Though there are 3 bedrooms I do not classify the third bedroom as a bedroom, It has its own door, pot lights in its ceiling, a window, heating, a closet, HDTV with over 290 channels and a single bed. The reason I do not consider it a third bedroom is because it is less than 5 feet high. This is perfect for children (and children at heart! ) and young adults. This "bedroom" is extremely popular, and people fight over staying in it, but I thought it would be unfair to not disclose the height restriction. It has been labeled by past guests as the "Harry Potter" room.
