About the property

I have been renting this condo for years (which can be verified at the bottom of this page). As the overwhelming majority of my reviews reveal, I do my best to help my guests' make their experience be a positive one.

  • Queen size bed in master suite. Second bedroom has 1 single bunk bed and 1 single/double bunk bed (called the 'bunk bedroom'). 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.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

First experience with this type of rental, yet everything went smoothly, from beginning to end. Kelly provided lots of info, so I knew what to expect. The suite was clean and well stocked, and all amenities were easy to find. Nice touches throughout, giving the place a feel of a family retreat rather than a sterile hotel. My family would be thrilled to stay there again on another trip to Ottawa. Thank you, Kelly! Keep up the great work!

Great stay with two kids

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this rental for two nights in December. The apartment was easy to find and the parking/check-in instructions were easy to follow. My kids loved the toys and games in the apartment. The only downside for me is that I didn't realize the second bedroom was on the main floor and the master bedroom is upstairs and I didn't want to leave my three year old boys to sleep downstairs in a new place so I had to share the master with one son and my husband slept with our other son downstairs. The owner was extremely responsive and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great stay in a central location.

Overall, this property was a good place to stay. We would stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

The location is very good - easily accessible from the airport and close to downtown and to Hull. Our 3 children were easily accommodated and we're thrilled with the bed under the stairs.

Very comfortable accommodations for family.

  • 5 of 5

Loved all the details for this property! Plenty of space for family and quite unique and fun for kids and adults. Near downtown and all the attractions. Owners are environmentally responsible with plenty of information for recycling and most importantly notes to make your stay comfortable and easy. The property was easy to book and check-in was seamless.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that Melanie, and her large group, had such a pleasant stay. This condo is very popular with children (and that makes their parents happy!) It has an adult feel throughout most of the space, but their are two interesting bedrooms that are so popular, guests come back again and again because their children pester them to visit again!
