This was a rare exception that we had a heat wave for one night in May and in the past 10 years we have never had a need for air conditioning this early in the season. It was very hot during this one day but it cooled down at night. That is why this guest had her windows wide open. Usually, my guests do not complain about outside noise because the A/C is on and the windows are new and quite thick.

I am so glad that Joy and her family enjoyed their stay so much. Joy also mentioned to me that it was a great walking location to the canal for skating and shopping. Regarding the heating, yes, you can turn it down! We have instructions in the manual as well as throughout the condo. It is usually simple, however, if any of our guests find it not to be, we are always a quick text, email or phone call away. It is rare that you cannot reach us immediately no matter what time of the day it is. We are willing to help with any issues our guests may encounter. We also offer arguably the best manual around! We clearly list every possible thing s guest would need to know (and always updating) in an easy-to-understand format. We know how difficult it can be to go somewhere on vacation and find you spend most of your time trying to figure things out than enjoying and relaxing. We try to take out that part of traveling to allow you to concentrate on the fun! Regards, Catherine

I thank you, Larry, for your wonderful comments about our apartment, our willingness to assist our guests, and the convenient location. We have found, through hosting thousands of guests over the years, that what everyone puts at the top of their list is cleanliness, comfortableness, convenience to the sites, university, government offices o the business district and you have agreed that our apartment is strategically located. It sure helps that there are also 4 major bus routes a few steps from the front door.
With regards to noise, during the warm months we provide air conditioning so no need to open the windows and the same applies during the cooler or cold months when we heat the building to a comfortable level.
We want our guests to know that when they stay at our apartment they are enjoying the downtown experience..and that includes street noise (though our windows are triple-glazed so they block out the majority of noise and this has been confirmed by many of our previous guests). We are not in the suburbs. But, there are many benefits to being so close to everything...convenience of having shops and grocery stores within walking distance and open 24 hours, the closeness of buses and taxis, the vibrancy of being in an active area, and the having a true downtown experience.

Hi Marie:
Thanks for your kind words. I am glad that you found the apartment great and comfy. My wife works very hard decorating the apartment and is constantly replacing things as they get used a lot by our guests. Just recently she bought a huge amount of games because some of our old ones looked like pieces were missing.
I know you enjoyed spending time visiting the tourist sites and eating at the restaurants in the neighbourhood. Didn't I tell you that the restaurant one block away has the best hummus you will ever eat!
I am glad you found talking to me easy and I do stress to all our guests that we are available to help with anything day or night, seven days a week. When you are on vacation you do not want any problems, and we will do our best to make sure your stay is great.
I look forward to hosting you again. You mentioned you may be back this winter. Since Ottawa is so popular with tourists during the snow season I recommend you book early if you can.
Take care.

Yes, the overwhelming number of guests who have stayed in our apartment over the years have commented on how close it is to all the amenities as well as many major attractions such as the Byward market, Parliament Hill, the Rideau canal. It sure helps that there is a very large 24-hour grocery store a safe and convenient 3 blocks away. But, I should also mention that there is also a 24-hour convenience store in the same block as the apartment, in case you need bread, milk or bus tickets. BTW, there is a major bus stop steps from the front door ad all the buses take you in directly to many of the major tourist destinations or, for the business traveler, the business district.
I am glad to hear you want to come back with some friends who have not been to Ottawa before. Based on our conversation, I think they would enjoy coming during Winterlude. You and your friends would find lots to do and enjoy. We are close enough to everything that you can walk but, of course, having the bus stop steps away is a great convenience.
Hope to see you this winter!
Take care,
