Interaction with Guests
There will be as much interaction as you wish, but we both work shift work so there is a lot of privacy too!
Very multicultural neighbourhood with people from many backgrounds. Many young families with lots of kids around! An extremely friendly place to be without any worry at all!
Please note - The house may be difficult to find as it is tucked off in the corner of our housing community. We recommend that you (website hidden) the address to find it, or contact us for exact directions when you arrive. :)
If you have a car there is parking here free of charge at the house, or the OC Transpo (local transit) bus stops less than a block away and the main transit station "South Keys" is within a 10 minute walk away. It will take you just under 20 minutes to get to the city centre by bus or by car. Both are very easy, and extremely convenient to get to and from downtown! We are also a 5 minute drive from the Ottawa International Airport if you are flying into town. Also, if you need a ride somewhere please don't hesitate to ask, if we can help we will!!

Exceptional hospitality. Phil and Janelle were incredible hosts. It was like staying with family. Nice room, really close to the airport for us. I'd give them 6 stars if possible. Thanks for everything!
It was a very short stay for us. The house was as described. Phil and Janelle were very friendly and we felt comfortable in the house. They were very quick to respond to all of our questions and provide good recommendations for a breakfast place.
We only needed a place to stay for the night that had ample free parking and was close to the airport. We found that and much more staying with Janelle and Phil. We got back from dinner in Ottawa and spent over an hour just chatting with Janelle and their other Airbnb guest. We felt very much at home. The house was clean. We had to leave early to catch our flight, but would definitely try to stay with them again if in Ottawa.
Exact as described. Had to leave quite early in the morning, to the extent that it may have inconvenienced Phil and Janelle, and they had no issue. Very comfortable, safe and clean. Will definitely return again to coordinate an early flight. Parking was no fuss. Quick 5min to airport.
An extremely pleasant stay would recommend it to anyone. Janelle was the perfect hostess and very kind couple, generous with their home. They made me wish to live with them forever. Thank you very much.
very clean and comfortable place when I stayed here. Thus, I want to thank Phil and Janelle hospitality. However, I had trouble finding a parking lot because there is no designated parking lot. In other words, you have to park only in visitor parking and when it is full you need to find someplace else.
My walk up to the front door at dusk was a delight as several young children greeted me with smiles and hand waves, I felt as though there was a welcoming committee greeting me! These foreign born children played with each other with a loving gentleness, I enjoyed hearing them outside my window. Once it was dark, it was very quiet.
Phil and Janelle seemed to stay out of view to give privacy. I never ran into them while I was there, but they were very responsive by text with any questions that I had.
It was close to the airport and it was an 8-10 dollar cab fee getting to the hotel that my training was held at. a great price for a simple room with a good bed, I couldn't ask for more!
