The house is super clean, nice, warm and welcoming, the room is very large and the furniture is very nice and made out of solid wood. Jude was very nice and helpful. I had a nice stay and I can recommend this place to everybody who likes it clean, quiet and comfortable!
Excellent!!! What you see is exactly what you get and more. Jude's home is immaculate, and she is a very gracious host. My room was beyond comfortable and the sheets and towels were luxurious!
Her desire for a "scent-free" environment is due to her allergies - but that was not limited my enjoyment and as she had all the products I needed - it made it a wonderful experience.
It is a good sign when the host is standing outside, on her front steps, to welcome you at the exact time you said you would arrive! No, no I am not lying!
Jude is a personable gentle, helpful person who shares her lovely home although she has a plethora of allergies. Just leave your scented products behind and use the excellent products she had put at your disposal.
The room is very large, the bed is super comfortable the noise is non-existant- an excellent place to spend the night.
Do you like Zen? Clean air? Light, space... subtle atmosphere? This place is for you. Judy's rooms are an excellent place to relax while working or visiting Ottawa, 15' from downtown through the Highway 417 or Parkway road, in a nice neighborhood, not far from a forest for a walk... in winter you can hear the coyotes howling...
A place to recommend, one of my favorites in AirBnB, a place where you want to come back.
I enjoyed my stay very much. Jude is a very helpful and gracious host, the townhouse was in immaculate shape, the room is very spacious, and the bed was super comfortable! I really liked the decorations, and the atmosphere, I felt like I was staying at home. For sure I would choose this location again!
Jude's townhouse was the very first place I ever booked on airbnb, and my experience of staying there for 3 days has solidified my confidence in utilizing the site, as an excellent alternative to staying in boring, faceless chain hotels.
I communicated to her the general time frame in which I was set to arrive, and she was there to greet me upon arrival, just as promised. I immediately felt a genuine sense of friendliness and hospitality from Jude, which was especially appreciated after an 8 hour drive on the road. Her home is spotlessly clean and meticulously maintained, and the surrounding neighborhood is safe and super quiet.
The wifi is blazing fast, and a free parking space in the driveway is provided. Access to both the 416 and 417 freeways is about 3 to 5 minutes, with the main road to Highway 416 having an 80 km/h speed limit and no traffic lights for half the distance, providing for fast & easy access. I did not utilize the nearby bus line, so I cannot comment on its frequency.
Some people might be wondering from her property description as to why she maintains a fragrance-free household, and it's because of her allergies. She offers plenty of fragrance-free toiletries, free of charge to compensate; an unexpected but very well-appreciated addition as a part of your stay. I found the products to be no different than what I typically use. Respect this rule as I did, and you'll be offered plenty of warm hospitality in return.
So, in short, if my travels ever bring me back to Ottawa and Jude is still offering her place on the airbnb.com community, I would not hesitate to stay with her again. She's a very sweet lady that helped to make my stay in Ottawa all the more enjoyable. Thanks again, Jude!
Beyond clean and comfortable, this is a lovely stay for anyone visiting Ottawa and an ideal place for anyone with allergies or sensitivity to environmental irritants. The 'scent-free' designation is genuine and serious. Out of consideration for others who are counting on it, do leave your other shampoos and deods in your car. There are premium unscented versions of everything available, plentiful
Apart from Jude herself, a perfect blend of unobtrusive quiet yet caring availability, the great treat for me was the quality of the WiFi Internet connection. Normally resident in Nunavut where speed and throughput are the worst in Canada, I was amazed to see download rates close to nominal even during peak hours. I needed to download and install a number of apps to a new laptop and transfer rates were consistently around 4 Mbps throughout my stay, compared to the 100-300 Kbps I get at home.
As I prepared to leave and checked under the bed to see if I'd dropped anything, I discovered part of the explanation; both the ISP's modem and Jude's WiFi router were right there blinking a greeting, barely a meter from where I'd been working!
Don't know how I managed to resist breaking out with a certain Beatles tune that must be annoyingly cliché to her by now.
Thanks eh... (Jude)
Jude is great host, very respectful and her house is spotless. I will be up in ottawa again on numerous business trips and plan to stay at her home majority of my visits. Thanks Jude
If air BnB's full potential lies in the niche market,then anyone looking for a very quiet house away from the Ottawa buzz - you could meditate for hours in it, it's almost ashram quiet! - or has sensitivities to the toxic external world and whatever they clean those hotel carpets with, then Jude's Townhouse is the place for you.
A very clean and pleasant space to stay in. Nice touches of decoration to make the place feel warm and peaceful!
