Interaction with Guests
Since this house is completely automated we e-mail our guests a code the night before their stay and unless there is a problem we usually don't see them at all.
We are one block from Somerset at Booth which has more Asian food restaurants than you can imagine. Were also only a few blocks away from Preston which is Little Italy. There are lots of eateries and pubs. We are a few blocks away from the bike path that leads to Parliament Hill and to a whole labyrinth of bike paths across the city.
From the Train Station: take the OC Transpo city bus # 95 (Barrhaven) and get off at the Lebreton Flats" stop. It is then a 3-4 minute walk up Booth St, turn left on Primrose and it's the last house on the right by the metal staircase We are also just one exit over from the O-train. From the Ottawa airport: take the #97 bus and get off at Lebreton's Flats. From the downtown Bus Station : It's much faster and probably less expensive to take a taxi.

Had a great stay in this clean bright apartment. The complimentary hot chocolate and coffee were much appreciated! The place is close to everything you need, walkable distance to Byward Market and Bank St with lots of food and drink options nearby. Marc was very helpful and attentive, he replied to our messages quickly. Great place with a great host.
Great host, amazing apartment, close to everything, we couldn't ask for more ! We will be back! Thanks Marc for all the advices and the interesting conversation!
The apartment is spotless, spacious, and extremely comfortable. My husband and I felt right at home, and ate at some pretty fantastic local restaurants on Marc's recommendation. You couldn't find a better location or a more gracious host in Ottawa!
Conveniently located in China town. Easy and no fuss entry and exit with electric key pad! Apartment was clean and very cute. We had privacy but felt we could contact the hosts if needed. Lots of helpful information was left in a binder for guests re: where to eat, shop and tourist attractions.
Loved the shower!! All in all a great time:)
I spent the night at this really clean and well furnished apartment in a convenient and quiet location. I love the keyless entry and the shower. I appreciate the washer/dryer in the unit and the binder with visitor recommendations. Chinatown restaurants and a great bakery were just a few minutes walk away, as is the bus stop to the train station and downtown. I will definitely return again and spend more than a night here in Ottawa.
Marc was responsive and cared about providing me a great stay. There was an issue with the heat pumps that caused some noise but it was quickly turned off. Even with the heat turned off and the cold weather outside, the radiant floor heating and insulated concrete walls kept the place comfortably warm through the night. In the morning, I got to see how the heating system worked when Marc and a repairman came to fix it. I found it fascinating.
Stayed at Marc's apartment for 5 days. The place was exactly as per pictures. Parking on the street in front of the house was convenient. Apartment was immaculate and very modern. A small issue with the shower came up on our second last night and Marc was very prompt at fixing the issue. I highly recommend renting this apartment.
We had a very nice night staying at Marc's place. He was very helpful with communication ahead of time and check in and out was easy. Clean, and well appointed.
