Marcia was very welcoming and helpful with tips about the area. The location is wonderful, being right on a lake (inlet of the canal) in a quiet neighbourhood, a block to transit, shops and restaurants, and close to canal. A lovely and easy 40 minute walk along the canal to parliament hill. No need for a car. I'd stay here again.

Marcia's home is in a lovely, quiet area overlooking a pond, just a block away from lively Bank St. Shopping, the Canal and all that Ottawa has to offer is easily accessible on foot or by public transit. Marcia is unobtrusive but always available to answer questions. Thanks for another relaxing stay, Marcia!

Marcia's house is very beautiful and close to Carleton University (I stayed for three nights to attend a conference). The rooms are lovely and there is everything you will need, including complementary coffee and cereal, blow dryer, fresh towels, etc. There is a river and pond right in front of the house and you can see everything from the house's balcony. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Ottawa.

Marcia and Vince are such wonderful hosts! Their home is clean, comfortable and lovely. They are located moments from all of the amenities of the Glebe, Dows Lake, Carlton University and the bike/walking paths along the river. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other Airbnb travelers.
