Originally came to Ottawa for school more than 15 years ago and quickly fell in place with this city that is both metropolitan and nature filled. Outside of working in the healthcare industry, I spend my spare time trying out new activities as well as plotting my next adventure. I tried out sand surfing for the first time in the UAE recently. On top of funding for my next adventure, I host my home to meet travellers from all over the world and provide them with a comfortable home away from home.

One of our 5 bedrooms is located on the main floor, perfect for multi-generational families, or those with limited mobility. FROM OUR PREVIOUS GUESTS Here are the good and the bad from our past guests: The Good: * Easy Check in * Excellent communication * Spacious home * Location * Easy access to high way The bad: * Steep stairs (we have about 10 steps on the stairs between main and second floor and they are quite steep. We have a bedroom on the main floor as well as a sofa bed for those with limited mobility) * Non-landscaped yards and lack of deck / patio (with recent completion of our renovation inside the house, we will tackle landscaping next spring) * Hot water ( this was raised as an issue by our prior guests. Despite having 2 hot water tanks in the basement, when hosting large groups, guests may have to wait 45 minutes - 1 hour for a new tank to be heated between showers). PARKING Free driveway parking for 3 cars. Free street parking available (depending on snow removal in Winter). GUEST ACCESS Guests will have full use of entire 5 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms 2 storey semi-detach home, full privacy. The host lives close by and is available if assistance is needed. Access to basement is restricted. GUESS INTERACTION I give my guests space but am available when needed. NEIGHBORHOOD OVERVIEW The semi-detached home is located in Carleton Square (ranked #2 neighborhood in Ottawa). The reason it ranked so high is due to 1) convenience of location 2) neighborhood with lots of parks and jogging / biking trails along rivers and creeks, 3) safe and mature neighborhood. It is very convenient in close proximity to both Carleton University and Algonquin College, shopping (Merivale Mall, College Square with Outlet stores, and large chain stores eg 24 hour Loblaws, Freshco, Food Basics, Walmart Superstore etc. these are just naming the grocery stores! ), restaurants, gym (walking distance 500m to 75,000 square feet 2- level brand new Movati Gym that opened earlier this year, open 20 hours a day offering personal training, classes, and swimming pool) It is located in a mature, family oriented neighborhood with very low crime rate (Ottawa is very safe overall), and lots of nature - 7 parks in walking proximity, close to Hog's Back dam and waterfall, Rideau River, Nepean Creek, both with jogging and biking paths along the riverfront. GETTING AROUND # 111 bus stop within 1 minute walk (100m), direct route to Carleton University, O-Train station, Ottawa University, Algonquin College, Downtown Ottawa, Baseline Bus station (major bus station).
House Rules
*Due to severe allergies (ANAPHYLAXIS) of our house cleaner, STRICTLY no pets allowed. * If you’re coming to Ottawa to party you’ve picked a great city to do so. Unfortunately, just not at our place. Though we’re sure it won’t come to it, serious complaints of unruly behavior will unfortunately result in you being asked to leave. To be considerate to your neighbours, please keep things on the quieter-side after 9pm. Being a family home, we have a no smoking policy (although you are welcome to smoke either out front or in the back yard). We kindly ask that you switch off lights and the A/C or heating when its not in use or leaving the house. Mother nature thanks you too. Whilst we do a thorough professional clean between each guest stay, we kindly ask that prior to leaving, you clean and put away any dishes or kitchenware used and put any dirty towels on the bathroom floor. It helps us get through our cleaning process quicker and allows us to keep cleaning costs down for you and future guests.
