Good points first: nice location, hosts did not mind when we were running late and were able to accommodate and meet us an hour later when we got stuck in traffic, the apartment is well stocked and furnished if a little basic.
We left early from our stay as when we booked, the listing said there was air conditioning and a washer and dryer. This has since been rectified. When we arrived, we found this not to be the case. This was pointed out straight away to the host that greeted us. He said that this was air bnb's fault and we should complain to them. We did this straight away by email and provided a copy of what we sent to the host. Air bnb never even bothered to get back to us so by the third day of our stay, with temperatures exceeding 31 degrees Celcius, we telephoned air bnb and got released from the remainder of our stay. Now, even if you do list your property without AC, I have to say that a very small desk fan in each of the 3 rooms is a little on the mean side. It was hot. And I mean meltingly hot in the apartment overnight. A tower fan would be a lot more desirable if there is no AC.
Overall, this was not a very good first air bnb experience and I doubt I will use them again. I have used other similar sites in the past with no issue. Neither the host or airbnb would take responsibility for the property being wrongly listed and I found myself with my family, including my 8 year old, staying in a sauna with a warm breeze from the fans to ineffectively cool us. Not a great start to an otherwise fun time in Gatineau and Ottawa.
I am not necessarily advising against staying here altogether but DON'T do it in the summer.
David is very nice and friendly when we arrived the apartment at 3:00 am. It helps us so much. The apartment is pretty comfortable like our own house. It's very close to Hull and Ottawa. Even you need to rent a car, you don't worry about the parking space. David will prepare the parking space for you. Especially the kitchen, let us take a break and cook some meals are pretty good. Thank you for rent the apartment to us. It's very good experience of our vacation in Canada.
Great location and apartment is exactly as advertised ! Thanks David :)
At Montreal Airport, we had unexpected delay with Greyhound bus ,where I was hit by a falling luggage. Therefore, I was unable to text David on my delay due to no lighting in the bus and my minor injury. Despite this, David's partner was very patient with us and drove us all the way from Downtown Ottawa to the apartment cheerfully, and informed us on certain shops as we moved along the streets. The apartment was spacious and clean. Unfortunately, we did not know where and how to take a bus near the apartment because the information papers given to us did not include this, although I had verbally requested for this. We had to walk in the heavy snow every day from the Quebec apartment to Downtown Ottawa. I had another accident (slipped and fell when crossing the slippery road) on my way back on the 2nd day. This could not have happened if I were to use the bus instead of walking. I could not do washing of my soiled clothes because there was no washer or dryer in the apartment although they were listed on this website.
Great experience! we had the entire apartment for ourselves.. David made it easy for our late night arrival (even later because of the horrible driving conditions). We had an entire kitchen, Internet, cable and so much more! He even thought to give us two sets of keys as we came as two couples which couldn't have been better. It was also close to everything for us
Our experience in Gatineau was great, the location was perfect to get to Ottawa quickly and other areas in the Gatineau mountains. There was no problem with space and the apartment was very clean and well equipped. The hosts were very attentive and helpful.
I was very pleased stay in David's apartment. The place was clean and comfortable. It is a bit out of town but there is a great deli like store right around the corner and you can get to town quickly on a bus that is a block away.
David was a host who went above with graciousness.
My host was very attentive and nice.
the address and neighborhood is excellent.
Thanks a lot.
Cute and cozy apartment with all the required necessities. Great location. Close to great little eateries and Ottawa is a stones throw away. There is parking for your car. All of Ottawa's popular attractions are easily accessible from the apartment as well.
Our host was friendly, easy to deal with and very quick to respond.
The apartment can fit four adults comfortably. The kitchen had everything you might need. The apartment was clean and the neighbourhood was quiet.
Overall perfect little hideaway!!
David es un muy buen anfitrión, el departamento esta en general en buenas condiciones solo falto un poco de utensilios de cocina (licuadora y un sarten de cocina). La comunicación con el fue excelente, muy rápida respuesta siempre. El vecindario muy tranquilo y seguro.
Recomiendo muy bien a David como anfitrión y su departamento en general bastante bien.
