Maria and Jim provided everything we needed for our trip and more. It was much better than many hotels! It was great to have underground parking so we could drive when we wanted, or easily take public transit, which was footsteps away. The apartment was beautiful and in a fantastic location; my friend and I wished we lived there!
Maria and Jim were very kind and informative. They provided all the right information before we arrived and the place was very clean and welcoming (included yummy snacks!). The building was clean and quiet. The neighborhood was amazing, we had a delicious meal at whalesbone and it was one of the best meals I've had in a while. Overall, we had a great experience!
This was the first time I have ever stayed at an Airbnb and I will definitely do it again! When deciding where to stay in Ottawa, the price of a hotel was the same rate, but with Jim and Maria's place, they offered free parking in a better location. Their apartment felt like a hotel itself, the hallways were well kept and quiet and our expectations were exceeded when Jim and Maria provided more than a hotel would. Although we didn't use it, they had a washer, dryer and ironing board, extra towels and blankets. The wifi and dishwasher was easy to use and convienent. It rained two out of three days we were in Ottawa, and the umbrella they provided was very useful and appreciated! We were a 15 minute walk from our family's place in the Glebe and a 15 minute bus ride right into downtown, and the bus stop was within walking distance. We had an option of using a key or a code to get into the building, which was great and their "DIY" check in was very easy to follow. If we had any problems, we knew that we could reach them. without any hesistation. We will definitely be visiting Ottawa again and would definitley stay at Jim and Maria's again.
Samantha and I had a great stay at Jim and Maria's place in Ottawa. It was comfortable, cozy, and the perfect size for a couple. The place was tidy when we arrived and it was nice to find some small snacks there. We particularly enjoyed hanging out on the rooftop. Jim was very professional, patient, and willing to answer any questions or concerns that we had before making the booking. It was a great neighbourhood to stay in. If you are going to Ottawa anytime soon, I would highly recommend staying in one of Jim and Maria's apartments.
Communication was easy with Maria and Jim; they provided ample information and everything worked as expected. The apartment is in a great location for exploring central Ottawa. Ideal for a single person or a couple looking for a place to rest. Everything was clean, secure and organized. Although I didn't use it - the presence of a washer/dryer is a great amenity
We stayed at Maria and Jim's apartment towards the end of May 2015. The apartment itself was amazing. It is perfectly located within walking distance to most of the main attractions downtown. The apartment itself was in a great building and the unit was the perfect size. Everything was clean and neatly organized and we felt completely comfortable the whole time. The DIY check in and check out was also a breeze and convenient. Thanks Maria and Jim helping to make our weekend in Ottawa a memorable one!

About the Host, Maria And Jim
Welcome to the National Capital of Canada, our beautiful Ottawa!!!
Our favourite hobbies now are gardening in summer and skiing when there is snow.
We love to entertain in all seasons and to attend theater evenings, concerts and restaurants -that is why our condos are so well located!!! So close to all Ottawa major attractions, from Parliament Hill to Dows Lake and our home is in the country side -sort of- in a 3 acres property in the West end, 30 minutes drive, looking over a valley, with lots of gardens, some natural and wild too, and partial on the Alvar ecosystem - a natural formation very dry and rocky.
When we travel, we also prefer location, location, location. Second only by spotless clean accomodations. A good bed, good shower, pillows and best food. We travelled extensively by now to nearly all continents - by train, car, air or sea.
Maria, a Journalist who became an Interior Designer is originally from Brazil living in Canada from more than 20 years. She loves cooking, reading and movies, when is not traveling, mostly to Europe or South America. "My background includes Law, Communications and Romanic Languages, I still practice Interior Design on part time, a passion of mine".
Jim is a retired professional from high tech who loves nature and family life. "Originally from Nova Scotia, lived most of my mature life in the National Capital Region of Canada".
AirBnB is a new experience for us, who love trying new paths, and we look forward to welcoming you!!!
