About this listing
The house is steps away from every possible place you could want to go in Ottawa. Parliament, Canal, Byward Market, OttawaU, NAC are all a quick walk away and there are many restaurants and bars around.
This space is probably one of the better spaces available on Airbnb Ottawa. My home is beautifully renovated and close to everything you could possibly want to do in Ottawa. There is laundry on site that you are free to use, fast internet and a fully stocked kitchen if you prefer to cook at home.
You are free to use the kitchen and I will be happy to have you join me for dinner!
The main floor of our house is common area and you can feel free to hang out. If you want to stay in, there is a large comfy couch, 60 inch TV with a jailbroken AppleTV (which gives you access to every movie and tv show you would need). You can feel free to jam out on my guitar, play PS3 or just chill.
Interaction with Guests
You will rarely see me, and I'm sure I will rarely see you as we are so close to everything fun to do in ottawa!
The neighbourhood is AWESOME! I live in Sandy Hill, steps away from OttawaU (we are basically on University of Ottawa campus), Byward Market, Rideau Canal, Rideau Centre, many major transit hubs, Parliament (a few more steps), Elgin St, Sparks St, you name it! There are a ton of restaurants (breakfast spots galore) and bars around and we will be happy to bring you out with us!
I would be more than happy to help you come up with an itinerary of the hot spots you should check out, events going on, how to get there, etc.
In a few steps you will be at the central transit hub for OttawaU and Rideau Centre, meaning you can get ANYWHERE from our place easily.
If you need parking there is free parking on the street, or I may be able to provide you with a space. (Ask before booking)
If I happen to be headed out, I will be happy to offer you a ride to somewhere.

We have a 1 yr old dog, who is amazingly well behaved and does not go into your space. He is cuddly as hell, but we will keep him away from you if you're not a dog person.
The house is very clean and we want to keep it that way. If you use something, clean up after yourself.
We will allow dogs to come in as long as they are well behaved. Our dog gets along with all animals, so no issues there.
If you smoke cigarettes, go out on the patio, there is NO SMOKING CIGARETTES in the house.
If you come home late and wasted, try to be quiet. No unauthorized guests if we are not home and definitely none at night.
Just don't be a slob, be respectful and we will get along just fine!
Place well described and well located. The house was clean even though there was a smell of dog in the living room. The room was big enough for two people and the bathroom was clean.
Jason was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. His place is in a great location walking distance to great sites and attractions. The place definitely feels "lived-in" as it is a shared space, and it served exactly it's purpose as a crash pad for a last min stopover in Ottawa.
Jason was very nice and easygoing. His house is about a 15 minute walk to Parliament and most of the main attractions. Being so close was really convenient. If you're travelling with a lot of luggage, you might be pressed for space - at least in the room my boyfriend and I stayed in; however, if you're travelling light, you should be perfectly fine! My stay at Jason's was very pleasant and I would definitely recommend it to another Airbnb guest!
Jason was very welcoming when I came to his home. Very down to earth person. He has two dogs that are so well behaved and trust me they won't bother you. Through the day when he is working he brings his dog with him. His one dog can ride a skateboard I would honestly stick around when he gets home to show u it is quite amusing. The bed in the bedroom btw is not a futon, I've read past reviews that it was honestly I was a bit worried because I was staying for a week. When I got in it was a brand new bed. Very neat. The bathroom is better then going to a hotel is was absolutely gorgeous he has great taste. His kitchen in the home looked like it had everything in there you would possibly need. I never used his kitchen but it looked well equipped. I walked in one day when he was making food it smelt like it was to die for so if he can cook something good in there I'm sure u could. Parking is a little crappy but Ottawa in general is limited to parking. But honesty just talk to him because he will help you no questions asked. I thank him for the great stay!
I stayed with a friend only for one night. Jason was very nice and helpful. His dogs are super cute. Good stay - I'd recommend the place.
Jason is a wonderful host. My parents were not good at English, but he made their stay really comfortable and communicated with them regardless of the language barrier. His dog is very friendly and well-behaved. I will recommend him to my friends next time!
Jason and his dog are very friendly and hospitable. The bedroom is not too big but in perfect location.

About the Host, Jason
My name is Jason. I am a fun loving guy, social and love to meet new people. I have been an entrepreneur for a long time now and am on my 4th business, all car related. If you are a car enthusiast or interested in business at all, we will have loads to talk about.
I moved here from Vancouver in 2012 and have gotten to know Ottawa quite well, so I can show you where you should go, what to do and even join you for a few drinks. I am open minded and respectful so anyone can feel comfortable staying here.
My dog, Clark, is a huge suck and even if you're not a dog person, you will be a Clark person. Our newest addition to the fam, Hana, will steal your heart too!
