Situated in Centretown, McLeod House offers a charming and unique space for work, rest or play. It is perfect for federal government employees, academics, executives or travellers seeking a more comfortable stay with easy access to downtown Ottawa or University of Ottawa and Carleton University.

The space

McLeod House is a quiet, mature, non-smoking building and the self-contained apartment can accommodate up to four people on two queen-size beds. It comes fully furnished with a well-stocked kitchen which includes a stove, fridge, dishwasher, coffeemaker, tea kettle, four-slice toaster and microwave. Rest your head on our latex pillow-top spring mattresses with 750 thread-count Egyptian cotton bed sheets and enjoy luxurious towels in the bathroom. Also included are a telephone for local calls, cable television, free WIFI, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. If you are staying longer than seven days a weekly linen and towel service is available.

Guests have access to the apartment and the third floor balcony. Coin-operated washers and dryers are available in the basement for your convenience. Or there is a local laundromat three blocks away that offers dry cleaning, wash & fold service and coin-operated machines.

I like to personally greet guests to hand over keys and orientate them with the apartment, the building and the surrounding area. There is also a binder provided which is filled with recommendations for food, shopping and attractions. It also covers general rules and what to do in case of an emergency. Since I live in the same building, I'm generally just a phone call, text or email away, but ask that inquires be kept between the hours of 9 AM to 5 PM unless it's an emergency.

Just steps from your door is Bank Street which was once the original main street of Ottawa. Lined with restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops it offers a wide variety of foods and merchandise to suit any need or taste. There are three grocery stores, a Starbucks, Tim Hortons, gas station and LCBO within a few blocks radius. And if you like exploring, Parliament Hill, Chinatown, the Glebe and Elgin Street are just twenty minute strolls away. As are the Museum of Nature, Rideau Centre, the Rideau Canal, Sparks Street Mall and the ByWard Market. You couldn't ask for a better location.

Also nearby are OC Transpo transit stops and we are located only three blocks from the Greyhound intercity bus depot.

There is one outdoor parking space included with the apartment. If available, extra parking can be obtain for $50/wk. Payable in cash upon arrival.

Jacqueline is such a gracious host, who goes above and beyond one's expectations! When we arrived Jacqueline outlined checked is in, as well as took the time to outline the surrounding areas. She prepared a binder that detailed locations of Ottawas sights, pubs, and restaurants - as someone new to the city, I found this a very nice surprise which greatly improved the qualiry of my trip. The apartment is gorgeous and located within the heart of Ottawa's Center Town, and minutes from many of the Cities major attractions, bars, and restaurants. I couldn't recommend a better place to stay if coming to the city, or a better host. Jacqueline is kind, patient, helpful, and only a text away if one has any questions. Thank you for your hospitality!

Jackie's place is just wonderful. Everything was super clean and perfectly equipped. We felt so comfortable in this nicely decorated and cozy apartment. The kitchen was such a dream and the bedrooms gave us the feeling to stay in a beautiful hotel. The balcony is as well super nice and perfect to relax. The apartment ist situated directly in the city, but is very quiet. Jackie was a wonderful host who welcomed us warmly, is always available and who has put together wonderful tips to explore Ottawa. We will definitely come back to this place one day!

The place is spacious, clean and was great for our family (2 younger children). The kitchen and whole appartement were well equipped. The available parking was a bonus.

Couldn't have been happier with this place. Plenty of space - much bigger than the photos give credit.

Jacqueline User ProfileJacqueline is a superhost.

Being a fellow traveller, I love to meet new people and discover new and interesting places especially anything unique to where I'm visiting. I like to offer my guests the same experience such as where to dine like a locavore, try in-house roasted coffee and micro-brews or where to hear live music. And of course you can't forget shopping, from Canadian arts and crafts to designer clothing, Ottawa has it all. That's another thing I love, the city I live in, and I can direct you to all sorts of activities, attractions and sights. McLeod House is my home and I hope you find it as comfortable as I do for work, rest or play.
