Other Things to Note
For newbies to Airbnb: Airbnb rents out whole apartments and individual rooms. We are renting a room. Each profile denotes if it is a room or an apartment. It also states check in and check out times.
Booking have to be at least 48 hours in advance to be accepted so we have time to arrange the room.
We are vegetarian, so if you want to use the kitchen, vegetarian can only be on the menu; thanks.
Keys are not provided to the suite unless for longer stays, but as we all work nearby, one of us will always be available to provide access.
Wonderful hosts, incredible home, very clean and bed was very comfortable. Valerie, Drav and Vaalea were friendly and accommodating with finding tourist places in Ottawa. Highly recommended ;)
Valerie and Drav are great hosts! I had the room for 1 night since I was in Ottawa for a race. The check-in was smooth and was able to get all the sleep I needed for my morning race. They were even kind to have me come back early afternoon to have a "well deserved" shower. Thanks for your kindness and hospitality!
Our three-nights stay at Valerie and Drav's was absolutely positive. First of all, we changed our booking a few days before arriving to Ottawa without any problems. The night when we arrived our train had a significant delay but Drav came anyway to the station to pick us up, even if it was after midnight (Valerie drove us to the station on our deprature day). The house is clean and beautifully furnished. Our room was equally clean, silent, the mattress large and comfortable and the view stunning. All the main attractions in Ottawa are located within walking distance from the house and Drav gave us a useful map where he highlighted everything that was worth visiting. Thus I totally recommend Valerie and Drav's place to visit Ottawa.
Valerie and Drav have a beautiful home that is really well located. Its about a 20 minute walk to the parliament (or a quick bus ride) and it is a 5 minute walk from the bus station. The room was really comfortable and they were welcoming and willing to give us suggestions for what to do in the city. Highly recommended.
Host was great! Accommodating with any requests we had and check-in! Place was great. Overall great experience
Had a great experience at Valerie and Drav's. The apartment is super clean and pretty close to downtown area. The hosts are really nice and friendly.
Hospitality went far beyond what i had expected for my first air BNB experience, such a great stay! Drav and Valerie were warm and helpful, Valerie had some great ideas for tourists in Ottawa aswell, all of which i took advantage of, thanx!

We are young professionals living together in a serene condo in downtown Ottawa. We are avid travelers and travel every few months. We have a lot of abundance in our lives and enjoy sharing this with others.
Drav: In the past 3 years, I have traveled to almost 30 countries. For one of these years, I lived in Ireland and flew out of Dublin each month to 12 countries in 12 months. The experience was beyond what I could of imagined and changed my perspective. In Ottawa, I work as a Director for an asset management firm. A lifetime ago, I was a fashion photographer, so when I travel I sometimes photograph people in the cities/countries I go to.
Valerie: She is a yoga instructor, loves fitness and healthy lifestyles. Valerie is also a Research Associate for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. She has an extremely bubbly personality and is always smiling.
Our girlfriend Vaalea also lives with us and she is an animal and human rights advocate and uses social media for education and awareness.
Airbnb is a great site for the travelling community. We know how it is when travelling and having a helpful person in the city with a clean, comfortable place can easily enhance one's experience of a city/country, so we are more than happy to open our place to people, as well as visit others.
