The Neighborhood

We are in the West, only 15 minutes drive from the high tech hub of Kanata (by March Road or Hwy 417) between the lovely towns of Carp and Almonte, in this estate community of Corkery, approximately 35 minutes from downtown Ottawa, as there are 0 traffic lights between this condo and the Hwy exits downtown.

Perfect for those driving from Toronto who want to avoid the rush hours, because we are located 15 minutes West from the exit of Hwy 416 and few minutes from Hwy 7. And yes, you need a car here.
In Kanata there are all sort of restaurants, bars, pubs, shopping, the Canadian Tire Centre, the Wave Pool, Bayshore Shopping Mall, Kanata Centrum and more. Some great places to eat few minutes from home as in the famous "The Swan at Carp" and its real canadian seasonal menu, from regular fare to bison and locally made!

Nearby there are several Golf Courses, two ski hills, a local airport, Carp Market, Mississippi River, an Elk farm, river beaches, sugar bushes, gorgeous plant nurseries, drop by Yoga classes, quite a number of festivals in Almonte, Carp and area, family oriented attractions as in small farms and so on.

Getting around

We have lots of parking space because one needs a car here.

Other Things to Note

The main bedroom has a brand new Queen Size Bed, there is a comfortable sofa bed on living room and mattresses, or even a crib, can be set according to need and preference.
The small new Den with a lovely window facing a lateral garden can be used as child bedroom as well.
During winter time watch for icy patches.
We are used to host friends and family from far and sometimes not so far because we really enjoy it, that is why we look forward to welcome you!!!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Maria and Jim were wonderful hosts! They greeted us warmly upon arrival and we immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. The apartment is lovely, bright, beautifully decorated and very clean. Next time we are in Ottawa we will absolutely stay here. They are also very knowledgeable about the local cuisine, and activities. Thank you so much for helping us have a restful and extraordinary trip!

  • Really lovely accommodation; friendly hosts; thanks v much!

  • In a situation a bit different than most, Maria and Jim were generous enough to allow my bridal party and I to get ready at the apartment before my wedding at nearby Saunders Farm. I have not one single complaint. The place was clean and stylishly decorated - perfect for the photos that I wanted! On top of all this, Maria and Jim were gracious hosts and went the extra mile to bring us a couple treats throughout the morning and check-in to see if there was anything we needed.

    For me, it was way better than what a hotel would have offered and I couldn't be more happier. Beautiful place and even more beautiful couple! I highly recommend this property and the other that they have in town!

  • We enjoyed our stay in this cozy little flat for 1 day and 1 night. Maria and Jim were very welcoming and took time to explain to us how everything worked. The place was spotless and as shown on the listing. It is a very calm area about 20-30min drive from Ottawa so please consider the location and driving distance if you intend to visit Ottawa on vacation as this may be a little far out. There is also a pullout couch available but it is a little uncomfortable for an adult but would be perfect for a child. Otherwise, all was great ;-)

  • We are a last minute guest of Maria and Jim. The communication was very good and they could get the apart ready for us right on time. What i can say about their apartment: so sweet, very tidy and clean. The bed is confortable. And we felt like at home. Thank Maria ang Jim

  • Maria & Jim are such sweet people. I wish I could have spent more time with them and at their place. They gladly allowed us to come in last minute and were very accommodating to us. The apartment was spotless, quiet and adorable. The bed was comfortable. Maria & Jim went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful and enjoyable. We would be so happy to visit again!

  • My daughter and I stayed at Maria and Jim's country apartment for 4 days in April. We wanted a place to stay where we could cook our own meals and that had a bit more room than a hotel. This place was perfect - the kitchen had every amenity, the couch pulled out for a comfortable bed for my daughter and I had my own room. The bathroom was beautiful with a huge tub to relax in after moving my daughter out of her residence at the university. There were extra special touches like toothpaste and soap and bath salts. The washer and dryer also came in really handy. The hosts were awesome - we called them when we were about 10 minutes away and they were there to greet us with the keys and to show us around the apartment and to make sure we were comfortable. They recommened a great Italian restaurant in Kanata where we ended up going for dinner and having an excellent meal followed by Starbucks which was just next door to the restaurant. The apartment is 30 minutes drive from the bustle of Ottawa and is very peaceful and quiet. The apartment looks out over Maria and Jim's garden - we were too early for the tulips as Maria had said she had planted 100's of bulbs and it will look stunning in a few weeks. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place too anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay while visiting Ottawa. It is also close to the village of Almonte with the antique shops and a delicious crepery! Thanks again Maria and Jim for your hospitality!

  • Maria and Jim are wonderful hosts. It was a pleasure staying with them for a second time. They once again went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The next time I'm in the Ottawa area I look forward to staying with them again. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

  • I can't say enough good about Maria and Jim, the home they shared with us, the accommodating atmosphere they provided, and all the fun conversation. Jim is hardworking and courteous, and Maria is thoughtful, energetic, and incredibly creative.

    The communication during the booking process was always quick and informative, the check in was easy, and the two were so quick to offer advice and direction during our stay. The space we stayed in was SPOTLESS: literally not a speck of dust anywhere, and incredibly charming and stylish. Maria has great eye for detail and flair, and our conversations were always full and long. The surrounding area is beautiful, and the bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom were stocked well with everything we needed (and Maria even said that if we should need anything else, to just send a quick message). Maria is quick to offer not only hospitality and kindness, but decor advice and amazing stories from her experiences.

    When we needed it, they respected our privacy absolutely, only coming into our rented area when invited, and they made sure we were as comfortable and happy as possible. After settling in, they hung around the flat for a bit making sure everything was perfect for us.

    Although it was a little bit of a drive into downtown Ottawa (about 20 to 25 minutes, to be honest), the privacy, experience, atmosphere, hospitality, and price couldn't be beat!

    Many thanks from Adam, Spencer, Meng, and Steph.

  • Maria and Jim were great hosts! Needless to say, their home is in a beautiful location with easy access to the highway. Maria and Jim are very personable, and I will definitely use them again the next time I am there.

happily retired - both of us
Welcome to the National Capital of Canada, our beautiful Ottawa!!! Our favourite hobbies now are gardening in summer and skiing when there is snow. We love to entertain in all seasons and to attend theater evenings, concerts and restaurants -that is why our condos are so well located!!! So close to all Ottawa major attractions, from Parliament Hill to Dows Lake and our home is in the country side -sort of- in a 3 acres property in the West end, 30 minutes drive, looking over a valley, with lots of gardens, some natural and wild too, and partial on the Alvar ecosystem - a natural formation very dry and rocky. When we travel, we also prefer location, location, location. Second only by spotless clean accomodations. A good bed, good shower, pillows and best food. We travelled extensively by now to nearly all continents - by train, car, air or sea. Maria, a Journalist who became an Interior Designer is originally from Brazil living in Canada from more than 20 years. She loves cooking, reading and movies, when is not traveling, mostly to Europe or South America. "My background includes Law, Communications and Romanic Languages, I still practice Interior Design on part time, a passion of mine". Jim is a retired professional from high tech who loves nature and family life. "Originally from Nova Scotia, lived most of my mature life in the National Capital Region of Canada". AirBnB is a new experience for us, who love trying new paths, and we look forward to welcoming you!!! To those that can stay in our home in a sort of rural environment, near Kanata, in the West of Hwy 417, we are proud of sharing our gardens, when the season allows. One should at least try!!!
