About This Listing
Perfect for your Ottawa vacation or work stay. Minutes from the beach, and the farmer's market is right across the street every Saturday.
10 minute walk to the beach. Sit on the grass, or swim. Just to the right, there is a restaurant, and often, live music.
Private space with 2 single beds, and private bath. Bridgehead coffee on the main floor, pub next door, and boutique shopping, all in the immediate area. No car needed!
You are welcome to use the full apartment, including kitchen, dining room, living room and balcony, with the exception of my suite, as I live here.
Please note that I don't supply breakfast. Breakfast, even early breakfast, is available in several locations within a very short walk. I will reserve fridge space for you if you would like to bring in your own breakfast food.
Interaction with Guests
I work at home, so I am often available to answer questions or just to chat. It can be as social or as private as you choose.
You'll love the Westboro neighbourhood. Close to the river and the Farmer's market, you can also sit on the patio at one of the many restaurants and pubs, or you can take the 10 minute walk to the grocery and liquor store to create your own appetizers on the balcony.
Westboro beach and a very long stretch of paths for walking, running or cycling is just a 10 minute walk away.
The bus stops just outside the door -- only 15 minutes to the Parliament buildings. And it's only 3 blocks to the Westboro transit station, for connections to the whole city.
There is also free street parking within a block or two of my home.
Other Things to Note
I love living here, and I think you'll love it, too. It's such a vibrant neighbourhood with so much to do. The #2 bus can take you to the GCTC for plays, or all the way downtown to the National Arts Center for all kinds of entertainment. Or shop at the huge Rideau Center and explore the historic Byward Market. The Tulip Festival is in May, and the summer is a continuous round of music festivals, from Jazz and Blues to Chamber music.
The only "rules" I can think of:
- No smoking allowed anywhere in the building or on the balcony.
- It's a quiet building, so we need to respect our neighbours by avoiding noise in the hallways. Thanks!
We had a very nice time at Anita's. The condo is exactly as advertised - clean, quiet and in a great location in Westboro. The beds were comfortable and there is a private bathroom for guests. Anita is very accommodating and well organised for guests. There is free parking in the area which is convenient for those driving.
We would definitely stay with Anita again.
I enjoyed my stay at Anita's place. It is in a great neighbourhood; walking distance to a lot of small shops, cafes and restaurants. Very clean apartment and had a separate bathroom of my own. Anita seems to be a very nice person. I felt as if I am staying at a friend's place. I will definitely go back. Thanks Anita.
