Both Marina and her home were absolutely lovely. She was very welcoming, accommodating my last-minute request. The house was spotless, spacious and nicely furnished. The bedroom was huge! Marina was quite friendly and helpful. The neighbourhood was good and close to downtown, although parking can be an issue if you come with a car.
Marina was a fantastic host, including making herself available and letting us borrow her keys when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the apartment. The apartment was very nice as well, and highly recommended for anyone visiting Ottawa.
Marina was a GREAT host. She was super kind and told us what to do there. The room was superb and the house too. Totally recommend her.
Our experience was great! Marina was very gracious and gave lots of advice on places to visit in the area. The accommodations where amazing, very central and easy access to downtown (ie. Nature Museum, Parliament Buildings ect.). Overall an awesome stay!
My husband and I had a wonderful time over the weekend with our dauther, who is now working in Ottawa. At Marina's place, we felt like at home - clean, neat, organized. Great place, great host.
Had a great weekend staying in Marina's apartment. Beautiful apartment, clean and comfortable. Marina was very kind and accommodating. We were both in and out, so crossed paths a few times, which wasn't a problem at all. The location is fairly close to downtown Ottawa (parliament buildings, art gallery of Canada, etc). It was cold so we drove but wouldn't be too far to walk in the summer. Nice neighbourhood, with a mix of new and old homes. Would definitely like to stay there again!
We spent one week at Marina's apartment with a friend of mine and the place was just as it was described here. Kitchen was great as was the apartment overall and we also appreciated the possibility to use couch as a second bed (comfy place to sleep even for my 6'3 friend). House was really quiet and neighbourhood nice and it was on a walking distance from everything we needed and wanted to see. Marina was lovely and made us feel welcome, also check-in and check-out went smoothly. I have nothing negative to say.
I am a friendly and outgoing person; I love meeting and getting to know new people. I work full-time as an interior designer. My hobbies include travel, staying active and being outdoors, design, architecture, fashion, cooking and reading.
As a host, I am very flexible, as long as the visitors are respectful and considerate. I would prefer to stay in the apartment (I can stay in the spare room during your stay).
