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.

Super place! David est accueillant et la chambre très agréable, bonne continuation!
David was available by text so I could let him know my train was running late and was home to greet me on arrival. He very kindly helped me with my luggage and had a written copy of information available re basic house rules.
His appartment is beautiful and exactly as listed. It is centrally located for local transit and has a grocery store within walking distance. Throughout my stay, David was available to answer any questions I had and made me feel very much at home.
Everything was in place as promised in the description and even more. Nearby were several good shops for grocery. If you have a car David's place is just a minute from the highway.
David was really a very good host and very helpful with suggestions to visit places, to give advice and how to handle things in Canada. He was very open, friendly and has a nice sense of humor. He really made us feel at home.
We had the option to wash and dry our clothes.
When our daughter came to Ottawa for a few nights, David welcomed her with the same hospitality and made everything possible for her stay too.
If we visit Ottawa again, we will definitely make use of David's home if available :-). In person of David we really experienced the warm and friendly nature of Canadian people.
Thank you very much, we had a very pleasant stay at your appartment. David is a great host with a lot of humour and kindness. We enjoyed our time at your place and can recommend him for all future travellers!
I was a little apprehensive for experiencing my first "shared room" when I booked this, but David made me feel comfortable right away. His welcome was friendly and his condo was clean and tidy.
The neighborhood was quiet and nice and easy to find and parking was no issue at all.
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.
