I work in the tourism industry and love to travel. I own a property in Gatineau near Ottawa that is very well situated and that I think you will enjoy.
This is an excellent option for anyone staying long term in Ottawa or Gatineau. Very conveniently located to downtown Ottawa and a short scenic walk across the Alexandra Bridge. The kitchen is fully functional and allows you to have whichever meals you choose at home. Plenty of room in a multi level layout. Not that there are lots of stairs but if one has an issue with stairs this may not be for you. The owner, Renaude, was very responsive to our needs. A great option and one that we will keep in mind should we come back again to Ottawa for an extended stay.
We really enjoyed out stay at the apartment.
Renaude was a perfect host, very flexible with regard to our arrival time and allowing us a day extension without any charge at the end. The apartment was clean and efficient. THe kitchen was incredibly well equipped and Renaude had coffee and tea available for our arrival. The decor is pleasant and charming. It is a very close walk to the Museum of Civilization, Jacques Cartier park and the bridge to Ottawa.
The apartment is on the second and third floor of the house. It was well air conditioned and ventilated with a nice rear deck.
The other tenants in the house were quiet and friendly. They made room for our bicycles in the back shed, which makes exploring Ottawa and the Gatineau park very easy.
My stay at Renaude's apartment was very pleasant. We contacted her last minute in dire need of a place to stay and she helped us out. Renaude was great at communicating and letting us know how to get to her apt. Her place is brand new and well furnished. The apartment is perfectly located just 15 minutes walk away from center city. Great balconies for watching sunset. A convenience store next door was good and the parking spot was a plus. I would advise young couples and groups to rent out her place!
