About this listing
The private room in our house is steps away from every place you could want to go in Ottawa. Parliament, Canal, Byward Market, OttawaU, NAC are all a quick walk, with many restaurants and bars around. Please note: room ideal for FOUR people, but I 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, 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 (infants), although if you want to post up on the floor with a camping mattress, I'm happy to let you.
High Speed Wifi is included
The kitchen is equipped with everything you could want, 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
I live with my girlfriend and two dogs. During the school months (Sept-May) I also have a roommate stay with me.
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.)
-Use of kitchen and main living room
-Walking distance from everything you could possibly want to go to in Ottawa including Byward market, Parliament, OttawaU, Rideau Canal, museums, etc.
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 dogs get 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.
Lock the door when you leave the house.
Just don't be a slob, be respectful and we will get along just fine!
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!
