Interaction with Guests
Minimal interaction - the place is yours for the stay, enjoy! Accessible by phone or email.
The neighbourhood is quiet and surrounded by green space so the air is very fresh. You will hear birds chirping in the morning, not traffic!
You're right next to the Moore Farm Estate, which is great for long walks and watching the sun set.
Public transit is the STO bus system (Gatineau) combined with the OC Transpo bus system (Ottawa). Day passes can be purchased for $8.50 and are valid on both sides of the river.
The STO bus stop at the end of the street is #5960 and goes directly to #5409 (right outside parliament hill & the tourist information center). You can map this out using the STO travel planner. The travel time is ~25 mins incl. walking.

I stayed here twice during business trips, two weeks at a time. I had a very comfortable stay and found the house to be well-stocked with everything I needed to be comfortable. Elizabeth was considerate towards my needs and very communicative. It was a pleasure staying here, and I'd love to do it again.
Elizabeth is a great host and made my stay very comfortable. The room is large and clean with good speed wi-fi. Elizabeth is quick to respond back via text or phone if you send her a message.
Overall I would rate my experience excellent and recommend others to stay at her place.
Elizabeth is a friendly and helpful hostess. The room is quiet and comfortable. Her adorable poodles add to the homey feel.
Elizabeth was a welcoming host. She allowed me to use her kitchen for cooking, and went out of her way to purchase a few snacks for me without me even asking her to. The room was a little smaller (in my opinion) than it looked in the photograph, but that wasn't a critical issue. The bed was nice, and their poodles are adorable. Overall worth your money.
The room was huge and very clean. The queen size bed was made up with quality linens and was very comfortable. Elizabeth was very friendly and accommodating. She parked her car in the visitor lot to ensure parking for our large truck. This came in very handy with all of the snow that was dumped on the region upon our arrival. Elizabeth has two little poodles that were silent during our entire stay. If we did not ask to see them, we would not have known they were there. The bedroom had its own key to secure our belongings but we never felt that it was necessary. A pack of shampoo, lotion, and bubble bath was a nice welcome gift.
Elizabeth is really nice and helps to make us confortable. The room and the apartment are clean and pleasant.
Elizabeth est très gentil et nous a mis à l'aise. La chambre et l'appartement sont propres et agréables.
Wonderful host. Elizabeth has a great place, it's quiet, very clean and not far from Ottawa. The room looks just like the pictures. I definitely recommend staying with her.

About the Host, Elizabeth
I'm a musician-turned-consultant that still loves getting a great deal on travel. I've been all over the world (Kenya, New Zealand, Scotland, Trinidad & Tobago, Western Europe) mostly on outdoor adventure style trips: climbing mountains, going on safari, scuba diving, saving baby sea turtles, whale watching, cycling, and more! While my days are spent out socializing and on adventures, I view my home as a quiet sanctuary. You'll have everything you need to have a chill stay & leave feeling rested.
