Our large 4 bedroom is in the community of Barrhaven. It is 25 minutes from downtown Ottawa. With lots of parks near by and everything you would need when travelling with kids, this listing is ideal for a family wanting to visit Ottawa but needing more space than a hotel or two families wanting to share a place with lots of space. There are bunk beds, cribs, a play room, a fences in backyard and lots of toys. Immaculate and fancy we are not -- extremely comfortable and spacious we are :)

The space

This place is ideal for someone looking to visit Ottawa but needs more space than a hotel room. Ideal for families with children. Fenced in backyard with play structure. Deck with a barbecue. Playroom on the main floor for children. Two cribs and change tables set up. We currently live in this home but WILL NOT be there when you are staying there - but it is important to note that our clothes/toys/jackets etc will remain in the home.

There is evidence of our three young children living there - there are a few crayons marks on the walls and some carpet stains that we are forever trying to stay on top of but alas these children rule our lives.

Guest access

Guests will have access to whole house, except basement and garage.

Interaction with guests

Will not meet guests at check in but will leave instructions on how to access and leave the house.

Other things to note

Absolutely no parties! This is a family friendly neighbourhood. This is not a fancy hotel style home - this is a family oriented home that is absolutely perfect for anyone with kids. No need to bring a playpen or crib or anything with you! Put the kids to bed and enjoy a drink on the back deck.

Up for a wedding and we did not have a good stay. The house was not clean to our pretty average standards and as a result we did not use the kitchen or eat there; costing money and time when we had to attend a wedding too. Not enough towels provided for our group. Lodged a complaint to get a partial refund and it was refused. I can't give any positive feedback and only hope this host will improve their cleanliness or quit AirBnB. This was with MONTHs to prep for our arrival. Bad first AirBnB experience unfortunately.

Response from Erin:
This guest did not once communicate with us during their stay. At no point did they request more towels, only waiting until they left to lodge a complaint. Our house is lived in, therefore our clothes, books and toys are there (as it clearly states in the listing). As well, there is evidence of children living there (as stated in the listing). I would suggest that you refer to the 7 previous reviews as a more accurate description of our space. We look forward to hosting you.

This is a great place to stay in if you're traveling with kids. Erin does a good job of communicating with her guests and was flexible when we wanted to update our reservation dates.
