Wake up with a cup of locally-roasted coffee, then head out to take in the sights and sounds of Ottawa.
The shops and restaurants of Elgin Street, the beauty of Parliament Hill, local growers in the Byward Market, and the best of our museums are all within walking distance.
Or you could join one of my tours along the Rideau Canal overlooking Parliament, as I reveal the untold stories of our national capital. (my new profession)
A bit more about my neighbourhood:
Elgin Street is just south of Parliament, and filled with great restaurants and nightlife. It's home to an amazing gourmet food shop, as well as delicious gelato, a quirky video store, the best newstand/ magazine store in the city, fresh croissants, coffee shops, and lots more.
I'm offering the whole (small) apartment--simply furnished--including bath and kitchen.
There is room for five people, but it's snug.
It's on the second floor in a quiet, well-maintained building.
Eat-in living room has a large east-facing window that offers great morning light.
I have one double bed and one twin bed in the bedroom and a pull-out double futon in the living room.
Sheets and towels provided.
Wi-fi included, television-free.
Clean coin laundry room in the basement. You're free to use my laundry detergent.
Parking: Parking is free on the street on the weekends. If you are coming during the week, I may be able to find a space for you.
Enjoy your visit!
Depending on what time you arrive, I often leave a key in a friend's mailbox a few blocks away. It allows for more flexibility. But it's nice to meet people, too!
The apartment was really lovely and clean and very accessible to downtown. Thanks Karen!
The reservation was canceled 15 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Ottawa is a great Canadian city and this is a great place to call home base!
Karen's place was perfect for a family vacation in the heart of Ottawa. It is a homey, clean, and simple apartment. A short walk or taxi ride from all the main attractions. I would definitely recommend it to friends or family.
This is a nice, straightforward apartment in a great location. It was very comfortable, clean and uncluttered.
Karen is a lovely person, and kindly invited us to have breakfast with her at the end of our stay. It was great to be able to get to know her a little bit and made our little family getaway special.
My friends and I spent two nights in the apartment of Karen and our stay was great! the place is cozy, clean, spacious, we felt at home! The location is also very good, close to restaurants and grocery stores, and some places to meet in Ottawa, as Parliament Hill. We did it all on foot! I highly recommend Karen's apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Ottawa. It's amazing!! Thanks Karen!
Karen's place is amazing!!! The apartment looks even better than in the pictures, was very clean and includes everything you could possibly need during your stay. It is also within walking distance to Parliament Hill, Byward Market, Glebe and there are many Shops, bars and restaurants right around the corner. The best part however is Karen herself - one of the nicest and most interesting persons I've ever met in my life! Feel lucky in case you get the chance to meet her, she holds a very special place in my heart and words can't express how grateful I am to have met her! Karen, I miss you already and please come and visit me in Berlin one day ;)
Everything was perfect and convenient. Really close to the downton and easy to access.
Thanks Karen for sharing this awesome apartment of yours with us! We are totally impressed. The apartment is very well furnished! Everything almost has its own style! Though we arrived maybe a bit ahead of time so it was not exactly ready, Karen was so nice preparing everything for us and by the time we get back to the apartment later it was perfect!
Me and my parents had a great time staying at Karen's :) The apartment had everything we needed, the location was perfect (with small amount of luggage the bus terminal could be reached by foot) and Karen was very flexible and helpful!
