I have a house with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. The house is in the french side of the Canada (province of Québec) and from 15 minutes to Ottawa the capital. So you can experience also the french side!
Beautiful house with 3 floors and over 2 000sq2 of space! Shared kitchen and shared living room, you will also have your private room! There is a bus stop right in front of the house and it's really close to the groceries, drug store, gym, etc.
**Recently created a second guest room in the basement for you guys since the first guest room is occupied until June 2015 with an awesome friend of mine from Amsterdam (So if you want to learn some Dutch, hurry up :) ). The room is furnished with a brand new double size mattress and a night table. You also have the private bathroom in the basement. :)

Interaction with Guests
I'm available if you need tips or if you have any questions. I know the town really well and the good place to go. I like to hear your story, where your from and what brings you here. I had the chance to travel in Europe for 6 months this year and I mainly used airbnb, so now it's my time to host! :)
The neighborhood is really calm, safe and it's located in one of the best area of the city. There is couple of school near it, lot of stores and really quiet.
Depending how and where you will arrive, i will send you all the information needed.
Other Things to Note
Je parle aussi très bien français alors n'hésitez pas à communiquer avec moi dans la langue de votre choix. Pour vous guidez si jamais vous voulez vous aventurez dans la province du Québec et essayez nos spécialités, je suis votre homme! ;)
Be clean, don't smoke in the house, have fun, smile, and enjoy your time!
Francis is a friendly and gracious host that made us feel at home right as we walked in. The house is nice and clean with plenty of entertainment options (cable TV, internet, Xbox). The place is also right beside the highway, which makes getting around incredibly convenient. We're looking forward to the next time we're in Gatineau so we can stay there again. We had an excellent time!
This was my girlfriend and I's first experience with air bnb and after staying here, I would not only love to try air bnb again but I'd also love to stay with Francis again. He is young, cool and most importantly, very helpful with any questions. The location is so close to everything that it makes it very easy to explore both Gatineau and Ottawa and it's easy to find. I can't stress enough just how wonderful it was to stay there. Anyone looking to travel to Gatineau or Ottawa MUST stay with Francis if he's available. 100% thumbs up!!!
Second time at the Francis home. The home and the room are wonderful, clean and quiet. Francis is a fantastic boy, helpfull and gentle. it was a very pleasure to stay there. i enjoyed my vacation!!! thankyou for all :)
Super clean, comfortable home with a wonderful host! I'm a host myself so I really appreciate the swift, friendly communication. Francis made everything easy. His place is close enough to the highway to find very easily, a 5-minute drive away from great shopping and close to many amazing sights. Highly recommend!
It was a pleasure to stay at Francis marvelous house. We really felt like home there. The next time we'll visit Ottawa we'll definiteley stay at his place.
Thank you those great three days
Perfect accomodation! Clean and in a very usueful position! Amazing bed, and bathroom with everything!
Francis is definitely one of the best host ever! Try to believe!
Nous avons très bien été accueillies par Francis. La maison est bien située, à 15 min du Parc de la Gatineau et d'Ottawa, et la chambre était propre. Le quartier est tranquille et à proximité d'épicerie/café/boulangerie/cinéma... Plus facile de se déplacer avec une voiture.
I'm a young grad student with a bachelor in marketing from Canada,Quebec,Gatineau. My biggest dream is to explore every part of the world. I'm in love with traveling. Beside that, I went on an exchange student program in Amsterdam in June 2013 and it was amazing!!! I've had the chance to visit France, Italy, Czech, Belgium and all the Netherlands, obviously. :)
I have not been hosting people since the beggining of 2015. The reason is that I have a really awesome friend from Amsterdam that took the guest room until June 2015 but I just bought a second brand new double sized mattress and created another and new guest room in the basement of the house just for you guys! It's also more convenient for you guys since you will now have your private bathroom! I will put picture as soon as possible.
Beside that, I love sports, life in general, my family, my friends and good food! Back in Canada I run a company called ForeverFit Canada and I also do the marketing for a company regrouping businesses working with wood. I'm pretty easy going and open minded. I love to discover new culture and meet people from around the world.
Might see you around! :)
