We - 3 women - spent 3 days in Ottawa and it was fine to live in Jim's little house. The upper rooms were clean, comfortable and furnished with taste. The room downstairs has only small windows, it is noisy there and accessible by rather steep stairs. What I liked most was the porch where I relaxed after a long day in the city and the wonderful coffee shop on the other side of the street. There are a lot of nice restaurants in walking distance. Altogether the situation for travellers is quite comfortable. The communication with Jim and his wife Sue worked well and quickly. Jim and Sue, thank you! --

This place is very well taken care of. The instructions are straight forward and if you need anything Jim is very easy to get a hold of. It's located just a quick walk from a few very good restaurants. There is an amazing coffee shop just across the street which makes early mornings quite enjoyable.

I booked this place for my family to stay in while they were in town visiting me. Mostly it was great, just some confusion with parking. The owner kindly offered to pay any parking tickets they received in that case. Just a note, the second bedroom is located downstairs and it's a steep staircase. Completely manageable if in good health, but tough for those with mobility issues. Kitchen and living room areas were lovely. Beds were comfortable and it was a great location.

Nice apartment which is very comfortable. Located near the downtown between Little Italy and Chinatown. It was quiet and some sports recreation areas are around it.

Great experience overall. Starting with hosts' helpful tips and prompt responses, accuracy of the accommodations, and finishing with the location.

Great cozy place to stay whether there for pleasure or business. Centrally located around little Italy and Chinatown. Steps away from restaurant and cafes. Great roastery/coffeehouse literally across the house. Parking can be an issue upfront once you left your spot it was gone.

My wife Sue ( who will be your host) and I are retired and love to cross country ski and skate in the winter and cycle in the summer. Ottawa offers the best of winter and summer and we think is a great place to live.We also travel as much of the year as we can and enjoy meeting new people.
