This would be your own apartment and as such, you will be given your privacy. In the rare event that there is a repair required, I react quickly.

This is a diverse and active neighbourhood. It is a comfortable walk to the Byward market, the Rideau Centre, Ottawa Conference Centre, Parliament Hill, U.S. embassy, Russian embassy, University of Ottawa, shops, 24-hour grocery stores, public transit, liquor and beer stores, movie theatre, live theatre, banks, restaurants, etc.

Public transit is steps from the front door and includes 4 major bus routes. Flagging a cab is convenient. Walking through the downtown is easy. A car is not required.

There is a park steps away, and a community centre with an indoor year-round pool 2 blocks away.

Everything was more or less as advertised but the pull out was very uncomfortable with a thin mattress making for bad sleeps. The neighbourhood was quite sketchy. Not comfortable walking after dark, Ubered instead.

Very close to Byward Market and about a 15 minute walk to Parliament Hill.

Four of us stayed here and found everything as expected. Communication with Catherine was excellent regarding check in and parking. The apartment was very clean and the kitchen contained all the necessary items. I can recommend the Shawarma Palace very close by for something to eat. Only stayed for one night so can't really comment on location as regards sightseeing, as that was not part of our itinerary. A good place to stay.

it's great if you aren't going to spend much time at the apartment. well situated and cute. small for 4 people. very noisy from the street, bring earplugs. and the sofa bed is really uncomfortable. the main bed is very comfortable. Catherine is very responsive to texts and any problem is rapidly solved. bring towels; the ones in the apartment are small. kitchen staples like oil, salt, condiments and spices are there.

We stayed at Catherine's place over the civic long weekend. The condo was very comfortable, clean and well-stocked. We were so happy to see how close the apartment was from the By Ward Market, the Parliament buildings and all the amazing pubs and restaurants. We had a fantastic time!! Catherine was very easy to communicate with and was very responsive. Check in was a breeze. Thank you Catherine, we will be back!

When I travel and stay in private homes I expect to have all the basics available (like spices, coffee, tea, sugar, bathroom tissue, laundry soap) as well as finding the kitchen to have an abundance of pots/pans, knives, serving bowls, baking sheets, casserole dishes, etc.

Since I have found this is not always the case, I understand how disappointing that can be, so I tend to go overboard and offer everything I can think of!

I am a retired interior designer and a Cordon Bleu grand diplome chef. I have taken my training and experience from these two fields and applied it to offering the best accommodation for my guests, including a well-stocked kitchen! :-))
