Our clean & cozy apartment is full of character. It features original hardwood floors, 10 ft ceilings & a spacious claw foot tub in a private bathroom. Our place is the perfect hideaway & is close to everything. Check us out on Instagram @theplacetobnb
Our spacious and sunny apartment takes up the second and third floors of large duplex. It features 10 foot ceilings and hardwood throughout, and affords everyone lots of space.
Your room is cozy and private and has a very comfortable double bed and a full size dresser. It also has a 43" TV with access to our HUGE movie library. The room is snug but we offer you lots of storage and a place to leave luggage outside the room :)
Your private bathroom is immediately beside your bedroom. We've done our very best to stock it full of the items travellers sometimes forget (toothbrushes, Q Tips etc.). There is a clawfoot tub with shower and a brand-new full-size washer and dryer. The only time we access this bathroom is to do our own laundry. But we will always give you a heads up.
In addition to your private bedroom and bathroom, you'll have access to our kitchen where you can cook and eat, or work. There is a grocery store close by and you're welcome to use our fridge to stock some food.
You'll also have access to the living room to read or watch movies, and our balcony where you can sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. Feel free to come and go at any time. Mi casa, su casa.
Interaction with guests
We are very comfortable being social if that's your preference. The level of interaction is up to you. We know all the great spots to go out and eat and drink and would love to share our recommendations. Kris works from home so he is here most of the time. I work at Shopify during the daytime but am here in the evening some nights cooking and hanging around.

I am a young, healthy, quirky individual that likes to eat good food, be active and breathe fresh air. I want to travel, meet people and be inspired. I am a well versed Airbnb user now. I have been a guest and now both myself and my boyfriend Kris, who I live with, are both hosts. He rents his cottage outside of Ottawa in the Summer and we host at our place where we live all
Kris and I are social and outgoing. Feel free to reach out to us anytime. We would love to help you plan your trip and make sure you get the most out of Ottawa. Both of us grew up here and went to University here. We know all the best places to drink, eat and be entertained.
While we don't allow pets/ have any, we are animal lovers and kind, happy people. At least I think we are :)
I am not a smoker but I do like to enjoy some vino :)
I couldn't live without coffee and cheese - but not together.
We appreciate all guests who stay with us who are polite, appreciative and want to get the most of their stay. We hope you'll notice all the little Ottawa theme'd touches to our place.
