  • Maria and Jim gave us all the information we needed in an organized, timely way.
    The apartment was small but perfect for the two of us for a couple of days. The apartment and entire building were both very clean. Parking was free and very convenient.

  • Prompt emails to get the reservation set. Flat is very nice. Neighbourhood is central and quiet. A basket of snacks was welcome after long trip getting to Ottawa!

  • We didn't have a chance to meet Maria or Jim in person, but we talked on the phone and followed their easy to follow instructions to get access to the apartment and the parking without any problem.
    The place was very clean, nice and exactly as shown in the pictures. It has everything you need for 2 people. Great location, nice building (quite new). Close to everything you want to see in Ottawa. You can even have a BBQ in the terrace.

  • Hosts were great to communicate with and very thoughtful! Beautiful modern apartment and very clean. Secured parking in basement garage and elevator access to apartment. It was a nice place to come back to rest and relax in. Great location to visit the main sites in Ottawa, highly recommend!

  • My best friend and I truly enjoyed everything about Maria & Jim's apartment. There is a fantastic grocery store if you take a left on Bank St. that sells organic food. We were able to use the assorted kitchen materials to save money on food! It's a very clean space and only 1-2 miles from most of the downtown Ottawa action. If you are considering, be comforted in knowing that it is the perfect place to stay!

  • This "Smart flat near Centre&Glebe+Garage" was a perfect fit for our 4 day visit to Ottawa. Although we missed meeting Maria & Jim [by minutes], their friend was there to show us around this 'tiny-perfect" studio flat when we arrive a little ahead of schedule. This gave us time to explore the area and do some shopping. When we returned, the flat was emaculate and "staged" to welcome all of our expectations, and more. The building is newly built and well located, near enough to Ottawa's many ammenities, restaurants and interesting shops. Our hosts responded promptly to all of our questions which was more than reassuring - this being our first Airbnb arrangement. This studio apartment was equiped with everything we hoped for and a little more. The clothes washer/dryer was a treat, as was the dishwasher! And as we had a car, the garage was a god-sent. I would recommend this place to anyone, short term or long term for its convenience.

  • This is a lovely, cozy property. Very clean and great location. Very quiet as well. Maria went out of her way to accommodate us on a special request which was greatly appreciated.

  • Maria and Jim were perfect hosts.Even though we did get to meet them in person, I feel as if I know them from our communications prior to our visit. And they have certainly thought of everything in preparing this charming apartment for guests, including shopping bags and umbrellas! And chocolates on the pillows and a basket of snacks! You truly feel like a pampered guest. Because it is in a condo with keys/codes/etc/., they provided us with very detailed and easy to follow directions which made checking in very easy. They even told us exactly how many turns to make in the parking garage to find our spot! That certainly made life easier after a long drive.
    Although listed as "small," the apartment is spacious, compact, beautifully furnished and has everything you can possibly need for a stay. I felt as if I could just move in and live there. We especially appreciated having laundry facilities while there. The garage was also a real plus.
    Marie and Jim had left many helpful directions/suggestions in a notebook which directed us to a great Thai restaurant in the neighborhood and a wonderful cafe where we enjoyed breakfast both mornings (one scarcely needed lunch after those breakfasts). The apartment is conveniently located near a bus route which goes directly downtown. However it is also close enough to walk. Everyone in the neighborhood and the restaurants and shops made us feel most welcome.
    We appreciate Maria and Jim's making our visit to Ottawa so enjoyable.

  • We stayed with my kids, and my kids really loved beds prepared for them. Clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. If we visit Ottawa in the future, we would like to stay at the apartment again.

  • My partner and I really loved the place!!! Well designed, easy accessible and close to all the city jewels. The apartment was very clean but a bit dusty and it's not because it wasn't cleaned prior to our arrival but I guess because it is situated very close to highways and main roads. My partner has allergies and we had to keep the window closed all the time just to make sure no dust comes in.
    Overall we are happy with our choice and would recommend to others too!!!

    Thank you Maria and Jim!

About
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!!! To those that can stay in our home in a sort of rural environment, near Kanata, in the West of Hwy 417, we are proud of sharing our gardens, when the season allows. One should at least try!!!
