About This Listing
We started to host travellers from around the world a few years ago. Now, we have a son, Louis, who will be one year old in August. Because we enjoyed so much meeting new people, share a drink or a meal with them occasionnally, and make there time in Québec city memorable, we decided to accept a few reservations this summer after a long break.
If you are interested by staying at our place, you need to be confortable having a toddler around! Please, mention that you read that in your request and that it's fine with you if you want us to preapproved the booking.
Our ground floor condo is located in the heart of old Limoilou, close the Third Avenue (shops, restaurants, cafés, bars, etc.) It's a five minutes drive from Québec City historic downtown. It's really close to public transit as well. Buses 800 (2 minutes walk, from "Cégep de Limoilou" stop) and 801 (8 minutes walk from "!re Avenue / 9e Rue" stop) runs every 10 to 15 minutes. You can even walk (20-30 minutes) or bike there if you prefer. Parking in the street is free (be careful, one side of the street is limited to 60 minutes parking) and easy to find.
The room is located in the basement (large family room). You must be aware that the lowest part of the basement is only 6 feet high. If you're tall, you might be unconfortable, but the place is really cosy, clean and newly renovated. There is a queen size futon for two. There a little breakfast area where two persons can sit to relax or work (free Wi-Fi). We provide a kettle and a variety of teas, herbal teas and hot beverages when you want to relax after a busy long day visiting our beautiful city. You can also enjoy a large flat screen TV with cable and DVD player.
There is also a brand new renovated bathroom just next to the room.
We made a few changes since the photos were taken (we added a desk and a bookshelf), but you can still have a good idea of the space.
You will have access to our kitchen on the main floor if you want to cook meals. You just have to tell us a few hours before to make sure it's available and clean the place after eating.
We offer you a basic breakfast (if you read the comments, you'll see that we used to offer continental breakfast). Coffee, tea, herbal tea, hot chocolate, muffin bars, oatmeal, apple snacks.
During the summer, you can enjoy our nice private backyard.
We provide clean linen and towels.
Really great place, nice and clean private bedroom and bathroom.
Easy to find from the bus stop. For those who likes to walk, you can reach the city centre within 30min.
Caring hosts, they gave us all the info we needed as from the beginning of our stay. They made us discover some really nice places away from the crowded tourist traps.
I would definetely recommend it.
Olivier and Genevieve were very discreet, kind hosts. The place was spotless, too, which we really appreciated! In a nice, quiet street, and close enough to get downtown in 15 minutes by bus. We would definitely recommend it!
Juste le bon equilibre entre un espace privatise (super agreable) au sous-sol et des recommandations de qualites de la part des hotes.
On y serait bien reste plus !!!
Geneviève et Olivier sont de merveilleux hôtes. Ils m'ont fait confiance en attendant ma confirmation, m'ont très bien renseigné et le sous-sol est spacieux et indépendant.
Geneviève m'a également rendu un grand service au sujet de mon transport.
Je recommande beaucoup ce logement !
