About This Listing
My bright and spacious two bedroom is found very centrally in downtown Ottawa, and is less than a ten minute walk to Parliament. With many bars and restaurants on Elgin and Bank, you will not be bored. The massive rooftop terrace doesn't hurt either!
Two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and amenities. One king bed and one queen bed, both extremely comfortable. In addition to the beds, the large sectional couch can sleep one extra guest.
A large, open concept living and kitchen area with four stools sitting at a marble island, with an extremely comfortable leather sectional couch with ottoman.
Rogers cable with HD programming, HBO and The Movie Network. Apple TV with Netflix and NHL GameCenter.
Two beautiful rooftop patios shared with the building, including many seating options and two BBQs per rooftop.
A shared gym with cardio machines and weights.
Private parking included, in addition to visitor parking that is available if necessary.
Interaction with Guests
I'm one of the most chill and outgoing people you're ever going to meet in your life, so I will probably be down for some pints and a bite if that's your jam, but I also understand that a lot of guests will want to do their own thing, and that's great too.
With that being said, if you want to know the best places to eat and drink in town, I can help you with that. I'm a little bit of a pretentious foodie at heart, and have eaten (or partied) at most establishments in the city, so I'm a great source of information if that's what you're looking for.
Centretown is full of great food, drinks and shopping, and is very close to attractions such as the Parliament buildings, Rideau Canal, national museums and other attractions.
Just a few short minutes away (on foot) from OCTranspo, which allows easy access to most parts of the city.
Very close to highway 417 East (Montreal) and West (Toronto)
No smoking. No other explicit rules, but feel free to ask if you're unsure about something.
Josh Grosse was a pleasure to host. He was a very clean and respectful guest. Communicating with them was also very easy and enjoyable. We would definitely host them again.
Josh's 2 bedroom apartment was clean and very accomodating for the 4 adults and 2 children that stayed there. Josh made checking in easy and made us feel welcome. Unfortunately there were various tv channels and internet advertised that went along with the unit but none of them worked. Josh had mentioned the internet was down and should be back up and running the following day but this did not happen. Would totally stay there again if the tv worked.
I was in ottawa for two days, and my stay was very comfortable. Josh's place is very conveniently located only a short walk from parliament, and everything was hassle-free. He was quick to help us out when we had any questions. The apartment was clean and spacious. Parking was available to guests, which was awesome, and we didn't want for anything while we were there. We went out and bought breakfast and lunch stuff, and josh has provided everything we needed to make us feel at home. I would definitely stay here again and I recommend Josh's apartment
Josh's condo is spacious, well appointed and conveniently located in downtown Ottawa. The included parking was super helpful. There were several restaurants in close proximity including Eggspectations, a variety of asian restaurants, and a 'nicer' greek place across the street. We picked up basic groceries at the Shoppers Drug Mart 1.5 blocks away, and walked to the LCBO (about 10 minutes). The posting is mostly accurate except that there is only cable TV (no netflix/apple tv). Wifi was great.
Josh was very responsive, flexible and easy to deal with.

About the Host, Josh
I'm a software developer who makes mobile applications for Shopify, located in downtown Ottawa.
I play a lot of soccer and enjoy going to all types of musical shows in the evening, and really enjoy eating great food and drinking craft beers and creative cocktails in my downtime.
Great Sushi for a decent price
Some of the best food in the city. Although a little pricy, Beckta's restaurants are world-class
Great local pub with large patio and good food
A small but decent grocery story, will have everything you need for a BBQ or for breakfast
Great music and crowd on many nights of the week, plus good, cheap beer
Depending on the day, some great DJs will play here, and 90s/80s nights are a great time had by all
