We loved the house! It is beautifully furnished and decorated with much attention to detail. internet and parking were fine. The location is great for a day trip to Ottawa. The Thousand Islands was also beautiful.
Definitely a wonderful experience. The house was very comfortable to stay in. Joanne and Rick had left a packet of information that made our stay in the area much simpler. Definitely would return!
Amazing home in a wonderful surrounding. We were given plenty of hints what to do. As Joanne & Rick couldn't make it to our arrival they personally showed up later to make sure every thing is perfect.
Very lovely and a beautiful home.
We went to church across the street on Sunday and had a very warm welcome as well.
Our hosts made us feel extremely welcome. We loved the experience of staying in a home and exploring a new town...both were wonderful! It was our first AirBnB...we hope the next will be as great!
Amazing home is a beautiful town. Perfect location. Everything was very clean and tidy and there were lots of supplies for use - pots/pans etc. Joanne and Rick were excellent hosts and were always available to us if needed.
Maison tres agréable, confortable et bien équipée. Parfait pour 4 personnes. Tres propre. Quartier calme et agréable.
The hosts greeted us shortly after we arrived and were very nice. The apartment met my expectations and met our needs perfectly. We were familiar with the town so we knew what to expect.
About the Host, Joanne & Rick
My partner Rick and I live in Prescott, Ontario. We love to travel and prefer to live more like a local than a tourist when we do. We enjoy exploring, heritage, architecture, and getting to learn about the area.
We recently listed our first airbnb place. We hope people can experience our place. We can work with you, if you like, to set up a very entertaining vacation.
We are excited to embark on being hosts in airbnb. Please check out our place!
