I own a warm and very comfortable house in a quiet neighbourhood in Gatineau (La Croisée, Aylmer Sector), only minutes away from downtown Ottawa (National Capital of Canada). I have two bedrooms with different facilities available for renting (daily, weekly or montly).
This is a 1800 sq. ft. house, with an open concept. The hallway with hardwood floor continuing into the family room with a beautiful wood burning fireplace. From there, you can see the eat-in area that opens to a wooden deck with summer furniture and a barbecue (only available from May to October). Main floor has an entrance, a dinning room, and living room, TV room, kitchen, laundry area and a bathroom. The top level has a 3-piece bathroom, two well-sized bedrooms, and a master bedroom with a 3 piece ensuite bathroom. In the lower level there is one oversized bedroom with queen bed, a recreation room and a 3-piece bathroom. The house have windows everywhere which allows a good natural lightening.
It is simple decorated with pieces from many places from all over the world, and some original paintings from local artists.
I have mature trees and many perennial plants in the back yard as well as a large deck to enjoy a barbecue or a glass of wine during spring/summer time.
The house has a central AC, and central furnace. It is rented with a weekly cleaning service. I have bicycles that could be used in the nearby cycle paths. There is a 18-hole public golf course surrounding the neighbourhood La Croisée- Aylmer, which meets championship specifications by playing more than 7,000 yards (Please see website for more details: (URL HIDDEN) In winter as well as in early spring, the golf trails are available for snowshoeing and walks.
