Great location, had what we needed
A cute basement apartment, new and clean. Could use an additional heat source and a tv but it was comfortable and fine
Great location in the Glebe, but found the unit lacking.
This suite needs some TLC. Several small repairs would make a big difference, such as fixing the broken toilet paper holder, adjusting closet doors so they dont fall off the track, placing a light at the entry top of stairs, fixing a safety hazard where you must step up and over a concrete ridge to get to the first step going down to the suite etc. Also found the suite very cold on arrival, no mattress pad on the bed, a fridge less than clean with previous renters food, and no privacy curtain on the bedroom window. We also were charged for parking but did not have exclusive use of the parking spot. The owner was friendly and helpful, the location excellent. Too bad the fixable deficits downgraded our opinion of this vrbo. Hope he has time to make the needed changes.
Was everything we needed. Clean unit and friendly hosts. We will stay there again if/when we return
Very good experience.
This little basement apartment is located in a beautiful neighbourhood in Ottawa. The apartment was clean and as advertised except it did not have a television, Dvd player or any books or magazines. The owner was easy to work with and always quick to answer his texts. I felt the apartment was fairly well equipped. My only suggestion would be to bring slippers as we were there in January and the floors were cold. Good value for the money.
The Glebe is a charming family neighborhood, and this VRBO unit is the ideal place to use as a home base in Ottawa. Close to Carleton University and Landsdowne Park (where there are plenty of restaurants, shopping, Whole Foods and an LCBO).
The unit is a charming, new, basement apartment. Cute kitchen with modern appliances, fold-out sofa bed, plus bedroom and bathroom. In-unit laundry was a very handy feature.
The owners are lovely to work with and they made us feel welcome throughout our week-long stay. With a kid attending Carleton, we'll definitely be back!

We had already stayed at Adam's basement apartment last year so we booked again this year. After we had confirmed our stay, Adam had to change our booking. He made arrangements with his neighbour to host us in a very similar basement apartment. So, THIS REVIEW IS OF THE NEIGHBOUR'S SUITE, not Adam's. The location of the apartment was excellent for us as we were visiting our daughter who lives in the Glebe. The area is a walking neighbourhood with lots of shops and restaurants a few blocks away. There is easy access to the canal and you are not far from museums and Parliament. The apartment is a comfortable, self contained suite with a small kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, sitting area and laundry (just like Adam's). The only problem we encountered was this suite was a little bare bones - no TP, no cooking basics (olive oil, basic spices) - which we have always found in the many places we've rented through VRBO. We had to park on the road which does have daily restriction times. When we stayed at Adam's place, we parked on his driveway, so there wasn't the constant worry about getting a parking ticket because we had parked too long. The owner was very friendly and we enjoyed staying at the apartment.
Thanks for your understanding in having to move you to our neighbour's unit. While our need to move you was a one time emergency, if ever we had to re-book a guest at our neighbour's suite again, we would certainly ensure he provided all the amenities we normally provide, and parking if it had been arranged.
We certainly hope you will consider staying with us again next year, in our suite!
