Location Location Location less than 10 min walk to downtown, Highly recommended, Jim is a very nice accurate and responsible guy and the property was clean
Lovely place. Jim met us at the door and gave us a tour. We were introduced to the cleaning lady. She left the apartment immaculately clean-thank you!!! It was wonderful to have a kitchen to prepare our meals. The pool was enjoyed every evening. So close to the market, mint, parliament etc. Jim and Maria it was truly a pleasure and we thank you.

Maria and Jim's place is clean and exactly as advertised. We had feet time staying for three days. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. It took us 15-20min walking to the parliament hill. Great experience!
Jim & Maria were great! Lovely place, very flexible people and so kind! Thanks for a great experience.
This is a very nice apartment in a central location with interesting places to explore in all directions.. Cooking facilities good, loved the soaker tub, and the balcony would be great in warmer months.
Jim is a very helpful and solicitous host. I enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend this apartment.
Lovely apartment! Everything shown in the pictures are 100% accurate, they really did a great job designing this place. Jim was a great host, giving my girlfriend and I a personal tour of the space when we arrived. He was also very communicative, always responding to our emails within an hour. He even allowed us to alter our check in/out times to accommodate for our train departure and arrival times!
The apartment is on the western end of the downtown core, about a 15-20 minute walk from Parliament Hill and Byward Market, so if you plan to frequent those areas be prepared to go for a bit of a trek. Otherwise, it is only a 5 minute walk from great restaurants and bars on Bank St. (go to Bread and Sons Bakery, love that place).
Definitely would recommend!
I found the flat exactly as described, and the hosts coul dnot have been more accommodating. They were fast in responding to any queries and sorted out various minor issues in no time. I can recommend this flat whole-heartedly.

About the Host, Maria And Jim
Welcome to the National Capital of Canada, our beautiful Ottawa!!!
Our favourite hobbies now are gardening in summer and skiing when there is snow.
We love to entertain in all seasons and to attend theater evenings, concerts and restaurants -that is why our condos are so well located!!! So close to all Ottawa major attractions, from Parliament Hill to Dows Lake and our home is in the country side -sort of- in a 3 acres property in the West end, 30 minutes drive, looking over a valley, with lots of gardens, some natural and wild too, and partial on the Alvar ecosystem - a natural formation very dry and rocky.
When we travel, we also prefer location, location, location. Second only by spotless clean accomodations. A good bed, good shower, pillows and best food. We travelled extensively by now to nearly all continents - by train, car, air or sea.

To those that can stay in our home in a sort of rural environment, near Kanata, in the West of Hwy 417, we are proud of sharing our gardens, when the season allows. One should at least try!!!
