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. Underground Parking Available for $15/night
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.
Underground Parking is available for $15/night
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!
Jason was very flexible with the check-in and check-out time. The house was conveniently located, and the living room and kitchen were very nice. Overall, a pleasant stay.
Je n'ai passé qu'une nuit chez Jason mais je dirais que c'est un super emplacement, très bien situé près du transitway (bus express), du csmpus de l'UofO, du canal Rideau, et pas trop loin du Marché By. Jason et sa copine nous ont chaleureusement accueilli. Thanks Jason!
L'endroit est propre et tranquille. La salle de bain privée est un atout non négligeable. J'étais attendu comme prévu, et Jason était disponible pour répondre à mes questions ou me conseiller, et m'aider au besoin.
On peut rejoindre à pied facilement et rapidement les principales attractions touristiques d'Ottawa, de même que plusieurs restaurants et épiceries.
Et, à mon grand plaisir, Clark et moi sommes devenus rapidement amis!
Donc, pour moi, une très bonne expérience.
Jason provided a very user friendly experience - his Ottawa location which is right down town lived up to what was indicated in his profile - and I was glad to have such a convenient location. It was straightforward getting the key and also enjoyable to meet him and to have access to the kitchen was great too. I had two good nights sleep which is what I needed - as I was working and I had two nice hot showers and as far as I am concerned I got full value for the money I spent. If you need a place to crash in Ottawa and want to be right in the heart of things and have some fun, this is definitely a good bet. Ottawa is really spread out but Sandy Hill where Jason lives is just walking distance to all the great attractions Ottawa has to offer - the market, Parliament Hill and the art galleries.
I wish him all the best and thank him for his hospitality.
Jason has a wonderful place that is quite spacious, and private, though a bit cold. We had a wonderful stay here, with just a small hiccup about check out times, I would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Ottawa though I would say to confirm check out time the day of departure so there is no confusion
Pros: Great location, Jason is very friendly and was kind enough to give us a parking spot, house and private suite are very nice.
Cons: The suite was quite untidy and needed a good clean. We had to make our own bed. The worst was that the toilet was extremely dirty and obviously had not been cleaned in quite some time.
This place has the potential to be great but unfortunately due to the uncleanliness, I cannot recommend it.
Jason is very cool! He made us feel like we were roommates and my kids loved his dog. He even set them up to watch a movie and him and his friend spent time with the kids.

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. I usually gate off the basement so he doesn't go down there and bother you, if that's what you prefer.
