My daughter and I were surprised to find the condo much more updated than on the pictures - pleasantly surprised! It was squeaky clean, in an extremely convenient location (we walked everywhere), and the free parking was a definite perk. Communication with Jim was easy. We definitely recommend this condo for an Ottawa getaway!
Jim and Maria's condo was just perfect. We didn't need a great deal of room, just a place to rest ourselves for a night, and this was more than we expected. We appreciated the comfortable bed, the clean condition of the apartment, and the little 'extras' (a little chocolate is always a good thing!).
We had a great stay in this lovely condo in Ottawa. It is in a good situation easily walkable to the City so we could leave the car safely in the garage. Everything we needed was provided by our hosts and we felt very welcome.
The place is exactly as described - clean, well equipped and located directly in the city centre. Thanks to Maria and Jim for their great hospitality and directions!
Convenient location to downtown Ottawa- federal government buildings. Quiet setting..very practical, clean, organized easy to use.
Site parking was appreciated
Great little apartment in a friendly and vibrant part of the city. The parking is so easy and a real bonus.
I was in Ottawa for a conference and stayed at this condo for 2 nights at the beginning of June. We had no problem finding the condo and the instructions were easy and clear as to how to get in. The condo is a single room, much like a hotel room. It was nice and clean and the bed was very comfortable. It is in a quiet residential area but very close to Bank st. which has many restaurants, coffee shops and bars, as well as a yoga studio within 5 min walk. It took about ~15-20 min to walk to parliament hill and the Westin where the conference was held, so the location was quite good. I did not meet Jim and Maria in person but they responded promptly to emails and sent me all the needed information ahead of my stay.

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.

She loves cooking, reading and movies, when is not traveling, mostly to Europe or South America.
