About this listing
The house is steps away from every possible place you could want to go in Ottawa. Parliament, Canal, Byward Market, OttawaU, NAC are all a quick walk away and there are many restaurants and bars around. Please note: room is ideal for 4 people, but will allow 6. Two beds
This is an awesome room in an awesome house with awesome people. The room is large with a brand new double bed, and futon if you want to sleep extra people. There is a full bathroom (with tiled stand up shower) just outside your room, laundry if you need it and even a guitar in your room if you are musically inclined. Feel free to come upstairs and jam with me as I have a keyboard, 2 other guitars and a sit drum (Cajon). You can sleep 4 people in the space comfortably, although there will be an additional charge for each guest. If you want to sleep more, that is up to you. I have listed it as 6 people as some people have small children, although if you want to post up on the floor with a camping mattress, im happy to let you.
High Speed Wifi is included
The kitchen is equipped with everything you could want, including a masticating juicer, which you are free to use.
You are free to use the kitchen and I will be happy to have you join me for dinner!
The main floor of our house is common area and you can feel free to hang out. If you want to stay in, there is a large comfy couch, 60 inch TV with a jailbroken AppleTV (which gives you access to every movie and tv show you would need). You can feel free to play PS3 or just chill.
Interaction with Guests
During the school months (Sept-May) I have 2 students staying with me who are usually out or sleeping.
The neighbourhood is AWESOME! I live in Sandy Hill, steps away from OttawaU (we are basically on University of Ottawa campus), Byward Market, Rideau Canal, Rideau Centre, many major transit hubs, Parliament (a few more steps), Elgin St, Sparks St, you name it! There are a ton of restaurants (breakfast spots galore) and bars around and we will be happy to bring you out with us!
I would be more than happy to help you come up with an itinerary of the hot spots you should check out, events going on, how to get there, etc.
In a few steps you will be at the central transit hub for OttawaU and Rideau Centre, meaning you can get ANYWHERE from our place easily.
If you need parking there is free parking on the street, or I may be able to provide you with a space. (Ask before booking)
If I happen to be headed out, I will be happy to offer you a ride to somewhere.
Other Things to Note
So to recap what you get when staying with me:
-Comfy Bed, Large Room, Futon. Easily sleep 4 or more (if you are more you will need to be imaginative, but i have extra pillows and blankets.)
-Free Wifi and Laundry
-Use of kitchen and main living room
-Walking distance from everything you could possibly be in Ottawa to see including Byward market, Parliament, OttawaU, Rideau Canal
We have a 2 yr old dog, who is amazingly well behaved and does not go into your space. He is cuddly as hell, but we will keep him away from you if you're not a dog person.
The house is very clean and we want to keep it that way. If you use something, clean up after yourself.
We will allow dogs to come in as long as they are well behaved. Our dog gets along with all animals, so no issues there.
If you smoke cigarettes, go out on the patio, there is NO SMOKING CIGARETTES in the house.
If you come home late and wasted, try to be quiet. No unauthorized guests if we are not home and definitely none at night.
Just don't be a slob, be respectful and we will get along just fine!
We stayed for 2 nights to this place. The location was ok, about 15 minutes of walk to the Parliament building. We had pur own key to use which was great and allowed us to come and go as we needed. It's important to know both rooms are in the basement. The room we were hosted in would have been ok for 2 people, but the old small extendable couch for the 3rd person was a back-breaker. It was clear that the hosts were trying to keep it clean but that small carpet needed some cleanning, it smelled pretty bad. We had take our shoes off which sounds resonable but the floor was ice-cold! Luckaly we had some flippers with us, so don't forget to pack a pair if you want to stay here.
It was a convenience location, and Jason replied very fast to my messages.
But the ekey for me may not a very good idea since my phone is not compatible. Also the place can be more cleaner for new guest to live.
Overall it's a good place if you're staying for short term.
Jason was good fun and didn't hesitate to show me around and make me feel at home
J’ai passé 3 nuits chez Jason, dans une maison située dans une rue avec des arbres, agréable et proche du centre et des magasins. Jason a été très cordial et très agréable ainsi que son amie et ses leurs deux supers chiens (extraordinaire de les voir ensemble). Deux regrets : la propreté de la salle de douche-WC qui n’était pas bonne et le matelas du lit dont mon dos sentait un peu trop les ressorts. Merci beaucoup pour votre accueil.
The accommodation was very centrally located and easy to find
The property description is misleading and the basement room can only accommodate a maximum of 4 people at a pinch. More comfortable for two people
Sparsely furnished with a double bed divan and freestanding lamp the room would have benefited from more soft furnishings
The small shower room could do with some TLC
Having said that Jason is very personable and charming
Jason is the perfect host. Quick to communicate - he responded to our last minute accommodation request. He's a very nice guy and great to chat with. Also, both his dogs are very well behaved! The house is big and is in a great location. The shared facilities (kitchen, living room, bathroom) are clean and very nice. The room is basic for 4 people. Jason mentioned he is changing the pull out couch for a bed, which will definitely make it more comfortable for extra guests. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay! Perfect location and great hosts.
L'appartement était correct, les chambres sont petites mais bien. Jason est hyper social ce qui rend le séjour très agréable. Sa maison est situé relativement proche du centre-ville et du marché. Épicerie très proche aussi. La chose qui m'empêche de mettre une note de 5/5 c'est que la maison manque d'entretien.

About the Host, Jason
My name is Jason. I am a fun loving guy, social and love to meet new people. I have been an entrepreneur for a long time now and am on my 4th business, all car related. If you are a car enthusiast or interested in business at all, we will have loads to talk about.
I moved here from Vancouver in 2012 and have gotten to know Ottawa quite well, so I can show you where you should go, what to do and even join you for a few drinks. I am open minded and respectful so anyone can feel comfortable staying here.
My dog, Clark, is a huge suck and even if you're not a dog person, you will be a Clark person. Our newest addition to the fam, Hana, will steal your heart too!
