Let me describe my experience. This was my first time in Canada. I contacted Kelly through Airbnb, she had a prompt reply. She had a room to rent out, So she reached out to me again after a couple of days confirming the reservation. That follow-up, was needed. Thank you Kelly, for that.
Then since it was first time for me in Ottawa, She even picked me up at the airport. That was super-sweet. And she waited till I cleared customs and immigration.
At her house, its amazing. You have all the amenities. You have a bed, a desk, chair, wardrobe, lamp( set of two), your own place to stack things.
She will make you feel at home. She is super nice and super friendly, to show you around the town. She will take you places, and it is just fun being around that place! You just feel welcomed there. I wish I would have stayed longer.
The people are friendly and nice. The room is just as described. And it has a bed, towels , and desk and chair. It was very nice of her to teach me stuff about cooking food, and making it healthy. I still take tips from her on that.
She is one of the most kindly, and friendly persons to be with. She is honest and frank, and as a host , I think you should be. Its so amazing at that place of her's , you dont miss home :)
The rooms are reasonably priced, and I would definately recommend her house to stay. You can use her kitchen, the common area. She has a super-nice family.
Why would anyone go to a hotel and stay, when everything is better at her house.
She even went with me to the bank the first day, so that I could open my bank account. How nice was that!
She was One of the best hosts you could probably find :)
