Second Wind Ottawa is walking distance to restaurants, clubs, the Byward Market, Parliament Hill, The National Arts Centre, the Shaw Centre, University of Ottawa, the National Art Gallery, and the business district. With the Rideau Canal at your doorstep, borrow one of our bikes and visit Dow's Lake, the Arboretum, and Hogs Back without ever crossing a street!
An Uber to Bluesfest costs about $7 - but you can walk or bike, too.
Your 2-bedroom apartment on the second floor has been recently renovated, giving you your own private keyless entrance; a living room off the balcony can transform into a bedroom or an office with just a finger. The murphy bed-desk, crafted by Master Cabinet Maker, Mark Chamberlain boasts a queen-sized bed with hidden cubbies for your electronics and books, and a spectacular live-edge desk.
The sun room, overlooking the garden, has a queen-sized bed and two large windows, flooding the room with light.
A showcase for optimal, multi-functional living spaces, Second Wind Ottawa gradually adds features that not only increase living spaces without building bigger rooms, but also serve to lower our carbon footprint. Beauty, however, is never sacrificed.
Top of the line Samsung ductless air conditioner, installed July 2017, is controlled by you. You can set it to cool or just to dehumidify or just use the fan. You decide what will make you comfortable.
Pamela & Judith live in the main floor apartment, ready to help you when you want us and yet never intrude on your holiday or business trip. Please feel free to use our BBQ and relax in the garden.
