Interaction with Guests
You traveled the world? A few countries? I would love to hear your stories! :) I believe Airbnb is more than just providing a roof. If that's what you are looking for, I will respect your privacy but also note that if you want to go grab a beer on a patio downtown and chat, I'm IN (if I don't have an exam/quiz the next day) ;)

David made our stay very easy and comfortable. He is super helpful and pleasant and his place is very clean and organized. We definitely plan to stay with him again. Thanks for a great Ottawa experience!! :)
It was Great to Stey in his wonderful house it was all very tidy and he was very friendly although we arrived quite late in the evening. He was very friendly, offered us using his laundry and was very kind leaving us as we were simply tired due to a long trip. It was a great night and we may really recommend going there!
David was a very gracious and kind host. He welcomed us into his home and answered our questions regarding the surrounding area ie: grocery stores, things to do, visitors parking, internet etc. We even watched some tennis with him late at night, and chit chatted about our day. David's condo is exactly as pictured. Cleaner then a hotel!!! I wouldn't hesitate to stay at his place anytime I was in the area.
We were running late due to traffic and had a miscalculation re: trip duration front Toronto/Mississauga. Our new estimated arrival time was 1:30 AM vs 11 PM. That said, David already asked us for our car license and details - processed our parking permit and assured us the delay wasn't an issue. As soon as we arrived David was there to greet us with a warm smile, keys and details for our stay. SUPER HELPFUL + HOSPITABLE :D
The room was exactly as pictured and the whole house is immaculate! We had a full bathroom next to our room and he was fully prepared with Q Tips, Hair Elastics, Towels and Blow Dryers. He told us to make our selves at home.
The house is very close to downtown Ottawa. If you plan on driving you can be there in under 10 minutes. You take Donald St down to N. River and across the bridge - super easy!
We chose to bike everywhere and it only took 15 minutes to get downtown. There is also a bridge at the bottom of Donald St (the street which runs from his house to the river). That bridge will open soon (just wrapping up construction now) and you can be in Sandy Hill (U of Ottawa area) within minutes from David's :D
He is very on the ball and considerate - he's always a step or two ahead of you, ready to accommodate your needs - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
David's place is clean and comfortable. We had very good communication. He offered me a good first experience in using airbnb. Thank you David.
David was awesome. Provided us with everything we needed. Incredibly friendly and accommodating. The place was very cozy and clean. If we ever come back to Ottawa, would hope to stay here again.
David was very welcoming and very accommodating with arrival and departure time. He gladly made us feel at home by adjusting the A/C on hot days and providing us with basic items such as towels and such. It was very clean and overall made our stay a lovely one. The free parking was a great feature, internet usage as well as a very accessible location!
About the Host, David
I'm a very simple and easygoing guy who loves sports. I don't think I could describe myself better than this first sentence. I love to run, play ball hockey, ski, snowboard, spend time with my family, etc. I've travelled to Haiti, Spain, Switzerland, France, Czech Republic (Mluvim cestinu ale jenom trochu), USA and hope to travel more in the future. As a host, I will try to accommodate you to the best of my abilities and make sure your stay is enjoyable and expectations are met if not, exceeded.
I am back in school (College) to become a RMT/SMT (Registered Massage Therapist/Sports Massage Therapist). This means that for the next 86 weeks, I'll be fully committed to learning. For those who I will host, I apologize if I can not socialize as much as I would love to (I'll blame on a quiz or a test) and I will appreciate your support in allowing me to study and sleep well.
