About Jacques Maltais

Hello everyone:

I am originally from Montréal, and I would have never guessed I would like it so much in the National Capital! Ottawa and its surroundings have so much to offer in terms of culture, social activities, museums, sports and outdoors! And with the celebrations of Canada 150 this year, I can’t wait to participate in one of the many activities that are planned!

I am honoured of being surrounded by my long-time partner, a loving family and a strong network of friends. I have a great job and I am fortunate to have traveled quite enough within North America and Europe, including having lived in Brussels and Madrid.

I am a curious person and I really enjoy trying new food, reading new books, meeting new people, trying new activities and discussing on a wide range of topics.

For having lived/travel in many cities along the years, I learned that when away from your real home, you still need a cozy place you can call your own, either be it for a few days or a few months.

This house aims to be your home when away from yours. I made a special effort to furnish it with these small details that makes the difference : comfortable beds, plush towels, wool blankets, welcome guide, etc.

I will be more than happy to provide you with all the information you need to make your stay in the National Capital a great one ! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

New Member as of January 2017 :)

Perfect weekend getaway home in Gatineau/Ottawa

  • 5 of 5

The location of this lovely home could not be better - it's a 5 minute walk from the Museum of Civilization/History and from the Alexandria bridge that leads into Ottawa. The house is located on a quiet street with a good amount of parking. It has a spacious kitchen that is excellent for entertaining. There's a lovely patio and backyard with huge lilac trees (in full bloom in May). Very tidy place, clean and comfortable. Jacques, thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home!

Fabulous location and a clean comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

We would definitely stay here again. We stayed with our three children (ages 13, 11, and 8) for three nights. The location is perfect with so much within walking distance. The kitchen is well set up with everything I needed to make simple meals and host an evening with extended family. Jacques was friendly and quick to respond to any questions. The house was clean and spacious and the beds comfortable. We appreciated the information on local restaurants. The only complaint I have is with the hot water tank. There was barely enough hot water to both wash and condition my hair in the shower before ending with a cold rinse. We managed by staggering showers throughout the day but I would not like to be here with a group with a tighter schedule.

Thank you for the lovely stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Laura for your comments :) Our apologies for the hot water. We found out that an element was not working properly. The problem has been resolved now, there is a brand new unit with a bigger tank.
