Interaction with guests

We are world travellers. Combined we have travelled over 40 countries and been hosted gracefully everywhere over the years. Offering our space on Airbnb allows us to meet fellow travellers and to feel a bit like we are returning the favour to the universe for being such a good host to us lo these many years.

We'll be around to offer advice, chit-chat and help you get local.

Other things to note

Our backyard backs onto Albert/Scott Street, great for listening to Bluesfest in the summers and light vehicle traffic at times (doesn't bother us). Generally busier during rush hour but separated by the backyards enclosed fence.

Very beautiful welcoming house. Adam was very nice and showed us around. Nice quiet neighborhood with a driveway parking spot. Close to restaurants and parks. I would recommend!

Sissi was a completely wonderful and gracious host who went out of her way to ensure I felt comfortable and informed. Her home was a private, spacious, stylish, well situated and perfectly furnished retreat and I would recommend it so highly.

Sissi and Adam were great hosts! Very accommodating, quick to answer any questions, and friendly. Their house is in a great location, very convenient to downtown Ottawa, Chinatown and little Italy. It's a nice neighbourhood with convenient driveway and street parking. What would have made our stay better was if the air conditioning was working and there was sound for the TV (they had taken the speaker with them). All in all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend Adam, Sissi and their place. Thanks for a great week!

Response from Sissi:
Hi Tim, Thanks for your nice review and feedback. About the speaker, we apologize for the inconvenience. We did mentione the house utility that we don't have AC. We tried to provide a fan which seems not enough for such hot weather. Overall, we thank you for taken care of our home. Best, Sissi

Sissi was a great host! She was welcoming, communicated with us clearly and timely and made sure we had everything we needed. Her home is comfortable and well appointed. We were happy to be such a close and easy walk to coffee shops and restaurants.

Hi there, I am an International traveller (work and life) with an adventurous mind. Doing HR consulting, and Travel TV programs for life. Like to discover the world with passion and fun attitude. Kind, open minded and super fun to hang out with. Met a lot of people and made lots friends, start to appreciate life more and more for how beautiful it is. I love AirBnb and so looking forward to meet different host and experience different "home".
