About this listing

The space

Large, sunny furnished room with queen bed on the top floor of our semi-detached home. Includes large private bathroom with full tub/shower. Free parking is available.

There is a second bedroom on same floor, also with a queen bed (see photos) available on request (ideal for groups of 3-4). If you don't wish to use the extra bedroom, it will be left vacant. Either way the 3rd floor is all yours!

We are in the heart of Centretown on a quiet treed street between two bike lanes. Bus stops are close by and we are walking distance to most of Ottawa's best spots - Chinatown, downtown, the Glebe, Parliament Hill, the Byward Market and the Rideau Canal.

Our place is a 3-story semi built in 1907. The bedrooms are on the third floor, along with a large, bright private bathroom with tub and shower.

We have laundry in the basement and a nice back patio. The entrance, kitchen and living room are on the first floor. We occupy the second floor but the top floor is all yours (private bath + bedrooms).

We have been living in Ottawa since 2008 and would be happy to recommend our favorite places to eat, drink, swim, bike, hear music, shop, etc. If you prefer to do your own thing or you know Ottawa already, we'll give you a key, leave the light on and get out of your way.

We've being using Airbnb as guests since 2011 and as hosts since 2013. We look forward to meeting you and hope you have a wonderful stay!

We had an incredible stay at Kates and Eriks place. Just perfect. The room was large as depicted. The bathroom was also very large. Everything clean and cosy. We really felt like at home. The appartment is in a very nice neighborhood and close to the center. Kate and Erik were so friendly and they gave us some recommendations for some awsome restaurants near the flat. It was just fantastic. Thanks for all.

We visited Ottawa during some of the hottest days this year. The room was big, beautiful but a bit hot due to the heat record. It's located in a quit and safe neighborhood. Erik was a great host who let us use the laundry and offered use some beers after the hot day. He e-mailed a list of suggestions of restaurants, bars and so on that we followed thorough and it all ended up really well. You have to walk at least 10 minutes to get to a good street with several restaurants. A tip is to visit the fish tacos restaurant! We didn't find have a car but we rented bikes really cheap. Ottawa's public transport system didn't impress. Be prepare for a lot of walking - or biking.

Kate and Erik were very welcoming and provided us with everything we needed. The home itself was lovely, and the location was great :). We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Kate and Eric are thoughtful, responsive and friendly hosts, and their place is so perfect for an Airbnb stay in Ottawa - clean, spacious, private, beautifully decorated, and conveniently located. We wish we had a longer stay!

I felt right at home at Kate and Erik's home! I didn't have the chance to meet Kate during my 2-day stay there, but met Erik who was very cordial, friendly and accommodating. He promptly responded to my messages (and many questions) before my arrival, accommodated my late arrival, and gave me a warm welcome. My room was very spacious, beautiful, with lots of sunlight. The room is actually much bigger than it appeared in the listing, with a work/study desk in addition to the reclining chair, closet space, etc. pretty much everything you'd want in a room. The bed was so comfortable that I slept in a couple more hours than I intended. The private bathroom is very bright, spacious, with an amazing shower. Kate and Erik also provide a nice selection of tea, coffee on the 3rd floor where the room is located, which was a particularly nice touch, as I love to drink tea before bed/when I wake up. There's also an extra fridge on the 3rd floor for those who are bringing food. I really appreciated all the information that was readily available, such as a well-presented 1-page info sheet created by the hosts (including wifi password, parking info, taxi numbers, etc.), various city maps, and little pamphlets of restaurants, etc. at the desk. Finally, the location is ideal. A 10mns walk or less than a 5mns ride from the Ottawa Central Station, it's very close to many downtown spots. The neighbourhood itself is very nice, quiet and safe. All in all, I had an amazing stay thanks to Kate and Erik's professional, warm and friendly hosting. I would love to stay at their beautiful home again when in Ottawa!

The house and apartment was cozy and really nice. We felt here as at home. We didnt met Kate and Erik, because we spent the whole day outside, but communication was really easy and quick. We had the whole third floor and we felt here really comfortable. Everything was clean and cute. Neighbourhood was quite and nice. There was a really nice festival just 2 blocks from our apartment during our stay, so we enjoyed it. I recommend this place!
