Interaction with Guests
People generally find me a friendly person. I also have great respect for privacy for others and for myself. I enjoy chatting with my guests when I see them around in the kitchen and love to welcome them. At the same time, I aim to provide my guests with utmost privacy and enjoy my quiet times in the hosue as well.
I love living in the Hintonburg-Mechanicsville neighbourhood. There is a number of great restaurants, lots of coffee and drink places, and nice boutiques. People in the neighbourhood are friendly and active - Great neighbourhood to go for a run or bike around and enjoy the nature and also the urban surroundings.
Very convenient for public transit. I don't own a car and take public transit to work and places around.

Fatima é extremamente gentil, côrtes e nos deixou totalmente a vontade em seu apartamento. Foi um mês maravilhoso. Altamente recomendado.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Fatima gave me a warm welcome and provided very comfortable accommodation. Her place is in a very convenient location. You can get to downtown Ottawa within 15 minutes on public transit. I would highly recommend Fatima's place to anyone interested in an Ottawa stay.
Just a perfect stay. The house is beautiful, clean and very comfortable. Fatima is a very good host, she pays attention to her guests and she is also discreet, a nice person!
My boyfriend and I stayed with Fatima for 3 days while we were visiting Ottawa. The room she had available to us was really quite nice and private. In the basement there was a room with a double bed and wardrobe and a two piece bathroom, all very clean and well kept. The neighbourhood was small and quite nice and off the beat and track, which worked well for us because we had a car.
We were out most days and went out for our meals so we didn't spend too much time at the room, only our evenings and nights.
We didn't see Fatima very much but the couple times we did she was extremely friendly and we were very thankful to be welcomed in her home.
If ever I need a place to stay while I'm in Ottawa again, I'd definitely stay with Fatima again!
My stay at Fatima's place was excellent. I initially booked a month stay, but ended up extending it for another couple of months. Her place is located in the Hintonburg neighborhood of Ottawa, which has a number of great cafes, gastropubs, a few smaller grocery stores, and various other shops. It's a couple of blocks away from Tunney's Pasture (one of the larger bus stops that's on the Transitway system). If you're a runner, there's a great running trail that runs along the river just a few blocks away as well.
As for Fatima, she's a wonderful host. She's incredibly accommodating and very responsive. I really enjoyed getting to know her during my stay, and would return in a heartbeat.
I can't recommend Fatima's place enough.
