Description

The space

This ideal executive suite boasts a cozy bedroom and a separate office space, perfect for anyone who needs plenty of space to relax and work. A large open-concept kitchen and dining area connect to a beautiful living room with a gas fireplace and a large sun-drenched deck overlooking a backyard garden.

You'll be lulled by the restful ambiance in this home on a calm cul-de-sac, but you'll also be tempted to put on your walking shoes and explore the area. Westboro's trendy village main street, with its coffee shops and specialty boutiques, is just beyond the doorstep! Within a ten minute walk along Richmond Road, there is something for your every mood: find ingredients for a great home-cooked meal at the Superstore and LCBO; get equipped for an active day outdoors at one of several outfitters such as MEC; or take your pick from the many neighbourhood pubs and fine restaurants for a fun and relaxing night out.

Great parks and green spaces are close by, the property is nestled between the two halves of the 5-km Byron linear park, popular with joggers and walkers. A leisurely stroll takes you down to Westboro Beach. This cyclist-friendly neighbourhood is well connected to the hundreds of kilometres of recreational pathways in the capital region. An idyllic 8 kilometre bike ride along the scenic Ottawa River Pathway will take you right beneath Parliament Hill and the heart of the city.

Interaction with guests

I live in the downstairs apartment, feel free to call or knock if you need anything.

The neighborhood

Westboro Village is a century-old community, and was once the heart of Nepean Township. The old stone town hall still proudly stands on Richmond Road, the original route westward from Bytown. Three blocks to the west is Maplelawn manor, Ottawa's second oldest building (built in 1831) and a National Historic site, which now houses a Keg steak restaurant and features a vintage walled garden open to the public.

Getting around

Getting around Ottawa-Gatineau by car is easy, with quick access to the freeway and scenic parkways, as well as the Champlain Bridge to the Quebec side of the river. Enjoy the convenience of public transportation by catching the #2 local bus to downtown one block away, or walk 300 metres further to Dominion Transitway station, with its fast and frequent service to the city core (>15 minutes) and suburban centres, including direct routes to the airport and the VIA Rail station.

Other things to note

Price includes Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) which by law is required to be collected on stays of less than 30 days. $150 is equivalent to $132.75 plus $17.25 HST. The monthly discount reflects a rate without the HST. I use AirBnB records for my tax returns so the HST is not negotiable.

The space is very impressive. Spacious, very clean and completely inviting. Glenn was a great host and incredibly accommodating. His attention to detail was pretty amazing. The neighbourhood also offers a wide variety of shops and restaurants and is completely walkable. The dedicated transit lines are very nearby and downtown is accessible within minutes. Thank you for an amazing stay!

Glenn’s apartment was perfectly located, close to restaurants, cafés, nice boutiques, grocery, liquor store … The apartment is exactly as described and pictured. Super Clean and neat. We didn’t use the kitchen but we checked it out, it is fully stocked, more so than often seen. We especially loved the fireplace. Coming in from the cold, it was very nice to warm up next to. The apartment truly offers lots:office space, decks (one in the front, one in the back), comfortable bed, nice tub and the shower had plenty of hot water . A real home away from home. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Ottawa away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Thanks Glenn!

Glenn was friendly and accommodating to everything we asked. He responded very quickly to our messages. The suite was exactly as the pictures showed. It was clean, well-equipped, spacious, and very comfortable. We could not have asked for anything better. We will try to stay here again in our next visit.

My hubby and I totally enjoyed our wonderful stay at Glenn's Westboro Village Executive Suite! We went there this past long weekend for 2 nights and everything that was described in his listing was EXACTLY what is offered! The area of westboro is fab, just a few minutes walk from Glenn's lovely home is the starbucks (wide and spacious, great service too!), shoppers drug mart literally a 2 min walk from his place which is important for me. You can pick up some groceries in there too if you are looking for the basics and if you are a woman some makeup! or beauty essentials! You are very close to the fabulous restaurants, cafe's, "shi-shi" shops in the area as well..we felt very posh indeed! The first night we arrived Glen was very kind to wait for us and to text us to make sure we were doing "OK" getting to his place as my hubby took the extra long scenic route to get to Ottawa! LOL and we arrived like at 9 pm or so...(we were driving from Toronto!) and he welcomed us into the suite and I was starving so Glenn gave us some great ideas for FOOD! we settled on getting some good ole burger and beer at "THE WORKS" it fit the bill! the hostess was so friendly! The place: *absolutely stunning and CLEAN, immaculately CLEAN! * Bed, super comfy, sheets, pillows--CLEAN!, bedroom like the rest of the Executive suite just roomy and perfect!-Best: the room darkening curtains!!! I didn't want to get up in the mornings! LOL * Kitchen-you can cook a gourmet dinner if you wanted too or heat up a pizza! the kitchen is FULLY EQUIPPED! --A RICE COOKER!! awesome!!!!!! yep, we are coming back in the future for a week i need my rice! and I love cooking too! I wish my kitchen was this equipped! lol * we were on the 2nd floor of his house so we have 2 balconies where the kitchen and the lovely gas fireplace living room was facing the back yard (with a cute patio table and chairs and a balcony in the front of the house directly from the "executive office space"! The executive office space boasts a lovely desk and a fancy office chair and the best part for was his binder of maps and recommendations in the area! I am totally impressed with the maps he provided! probably is the OCD in me! * I am so glad we didn't book with a hotel and decided to book Glenn's place instead and my hubby was very happy with me for choosing it! As the saying goes "Happy Wife, Happy Life" This is our very first Air b&b experience and it was absolutely incredible! We shall be back next summer to hopefully stay for 1 week to really enjoy staying in his flat and see more of Ottawa!! If you are still thinking while looking at his listing, just BOOK WITH GLENN! trust me...

Glenn is an excellent host! He was even kind enough to lend me one of his bicycles, to see Ottawa through its excellent bike paths. The apartment itself is huge, with everything you would expect as a business traveller. Definitely staying here if I visit Ottawa again.

My adventurous spirit was awakened when I went on a three-month backpacking trip around Europe after I graduated from university. Each and every year since, I've made a point of travelling somewhere different and interesting. I later discovered my passion for bicycle touring and most of my journeys from 1994 on have been cranking pedals on two wheels. I enjoy meeting new people, and for me, welcoming guests to my home often feels like travelling without leaving the house.

I am an industrial designer by training, but I have specialized in exhibit and environmental graphic design. Most of my work is with the national museums in Ottawa and with the National Capital Commission. I have lived in Ottawa for over three decades and have acquired a fondness for Ottawa's history and culture and try my best to pass on its stories and traditions.

Living in an area that is a confluence of rivers and waterways, I am also an avid paddler. I enjoy taking people on a canoe or kayak out on the Ottawa River to experience its special spirit, or on the Rideau Canal for its rich heritage.
