Did not live up to expectations.
I do not believe this place meets the basic safety or cleanliness standards to be a VRBO property. The steps down to the basement suite are very long and steep. The steps up to the entrance are in very poor condition with a wobbly hand rail. The beds are comfortable, there is lots of hot water, the location is excellent. The rest is all negative. The suite is very cluttered, the windows are small and dirty. The back yard could be lovely but the fence is in disrepair and the gate is off its hinges. At a low enough rent this would be a great find for a struggling student, as a VRBO it misses the mark.
Honestly I am surprised and distressed that these elderly travellers left us this inferior review after we contacted them for possible water stain damages with 3 big blue molds grown on our two wooden washroom drawers. Besides two dogs (I thought they had only one dog) left the pees on the floors while they were there. After they checked-in, this is a message that we received:
"We are in now. All is well. Thanks.
Thu 8/8/2019 8:08 PM EDT"
The negative feedback was never communicated to us during their 18-day stay. Before they checked-in, we had another couple stayed with us for a month for their wedding preparation. Unfortunately, they left the suite in despair(plumbing had to be replaced and area rugs in living room needed to be steam-cleaned to remove smell mixed with dog and smoke ). In addition, there is nothing like what they mentioned "cluttered". The suite is decorated modern with simple furniture which makes it spacious as shown. I was in overseas while they were about to check in. I instructed them with all check-in information and internet password. We also installed All season LG Heat/AC pump which makes the suite very comfortable.
It is great to have guests with sense of belonging when you have guests enjoying the suite. However, these couple tried to close our backyard wooden door with force so that the hinge was off. It could be easily fixed with applying some WD-40. While the husband was busy, the wife was left with two extremely active dogs, tracing my cat and even another street cat, who accidently entered my suite and scratched me and left a lot of blood on my hands. I had to invite the neighbour to take the mad cat out. Secondly, a lovely young lady came to stay in the suite on the first week without my permission. Additional two guests came without my acknowledgement on the last night. All I want to say is that these guests were not open enough to inform us anything that they were not happy about. I had a few short cheerful conversations with her and her husband as well as their grand daughter. Nothing seemed wrong until we pointed out some possible damages to the suite by email. They denied they had anything to do with molding drawers. Anyway, this will be the last time that we accept pets in the suite. The comment made by them not only disrespectful to us as VRBO property owner and also to my past guests, who are working professionals and athletes, who happened to know the guests.
Communication is a key.
Nice and comfortable.
Beautiful location in beach neighbourhood.
3 minute walk to walk/ bike path.
3 minute walk to amenities.
This place is perfect, good location and very clean. Amy the owner is awesome to deal with. This is our second stay in the unit very happy with it .
Thank you Cal and his shooting crew including 5 members in our Triplex suite. Cal and his crew won the silver Plate in their 2017 Olympic Shooting Event organized in Ottawa, close to Kanata . I am so proud to have them in the suite, sharing some fun stories at the backyard. They are so clean and friendly beyond my expectations. Before Cal came to stay with us in 2016 for the country wide shooting event (only Canada), he requested a barbecue to be installed at the backyard, in which we honoured our promise to allow them truly enjoy this special feature in which one can never expect that in the hotel/motel settings. Please come again, Cal and Denis.
Amy was very nice to deal with, she came home from work to let us in to our suite. She lives upstairs in the house, we never heard or saw her all week, of course we were gone from early morning until later in the evening. We where a party of four (2 couples) staying in this property for one week. The property was a basement suite with 2 bedrooms and one bathroom and a kitchen, living room combined. It was clean, the kitchen had been upgraded. The beds were very comfortable, but could have used some decent pillows and sheets that fit the beds, had to get up in the night and put them back on, the blankets were a little old, could use an upgrade, there was no dresser in the 2nd bedroom, so one couple had to live out of their suitcase for the week. Mirrors in the bedrooms would have been nice. Had to do our hair in the living room because that was where the only mirror outside of the bathroom (which was always busy) The bathroom is very tiny, the shower was very small, there is no fan so it was a constant fog in there. There is a small washer and dryer, which we used, and you have to hook the washer up to the kitchen tap, which was not an issue. The wifi was poor , 2 nights to watch one movie on Netflix, only 4 TV channels, which was not a problem. Our biggest concern with the property was the size of the windows. With that being said, it was a great location, close to the bus route, Tim Hortons, mall and a movie theatre. We rented during Canada Day so our choices where slim to none. Thank you Amy, we enjoyed our stay in Ottawa, beautiful city.
Thank you so much for Terry to give her suggestions for us to improve the conditions of the suite. Terry and her crew (4 members) came to Ottawa to celebrate 150 Anniversary of Canada. While we appreciate her comment, we do feel that they have got very good rate for 4-people stay for the price of one night stay if they would have booked the motel or hotel during this competitive season. Ottawa was packed with full of folks, who wanted to share their celebrating spirit. It is 10-min driving distance to downtown Ottawa and Parliament Hill. It is 5-mins walk to all amenities including restaurant, grocery shopping and cinema. Mostly interesting feature this suite provides is its proximity to the Britannia beach with only 5-min walking distance, you find yourself in a beach with white sand and security guard on site. For the washroom, we installed LG heating and a/c wall unit to refresh the air and take away the humidity. I found that it was a pity that they did not know how to adjust the features available for the awesome unit. Otherwise, they might be able to enjoy more. Most hotels offers laundry service with a imposed charge. Here, Portable washer and dryer are in the suite for the convenience of the guests. The only thing that they did not open the windows at all while they were here. It is summer and we also love the fresh air from the backyard garden. I guess they needed their privacy.
We always want to continue improving our service provided to the guests. In taking consideration of Terrie's comment, we have replaced all the blankets and bed sheets.
Wifi has been upgraded with fasting features after we consider Terrie's comment about internet service available. So the guest can watch their Netfiix movies without interruption. We only have 4 TV channels just to accommodate some guests who are not technology savvy and have problems to use their laptops. In fact, the TV subscription is in the decreasing trend. Now most consumers switch to watch most of the news and TV online.
In addition, concerning the window size, the guests were advised to vacate via the stairs of the upper unit in the triplex building should anything such as fire or flood incurs. In conclusion, I am very pleased they were very happy for their stay and they were in our beautiful capital city to enjoy this unique moment once in 150 years. Please come again, Terrie. We truly enjoyed your being with us on this special occasion. Thank you!!

Jose and family.
Hey Jose, you are definitely my favorite fan among my guests, positive and helpful, and understanding. It is definitely a convenient location, having acess to a trendy area such as Westboro, where all shops and boutiques are around. Warmart and Bayshore shopping mall, meat and vegetable shops are 5-min walking distance. one of largest cinema in town is just a minute away. The Britannia beach and Andrew Hyden Park are nearby. 8-min driving distance to downtown. Thank you Jose. Please come again!!
It is without hesitation that we would recommend staying at Amy’s place in Ottawa. The two-bedroom suite was very clean and extremely well maintained. The accommodations where easy to book and access to the property was well organized. The kitchen was well stocked and the BBQ was an added bonus! I would recommend this rental to my family and friends!
Ottawa / Gatineau-regionen ser ut som et forseggjort maleri blandet med en moderne storbyby. Plassert på møtet mellom tre store elver - Ottawa River, Gatineau River, og Rideau River - Canadas hovedstad har 1800-tallets arkitektur og utendørs landskap laget for å sjarmere enhver besøkende.
Det mest populære nettstedet i Ottawa er Rideau-kanalen, som skjærer gjennom hjertet av regionen. Mange innbyggere og turister kan sees ha piknik eller slappe av på en ettermiddagsferie i nærheten av kanalen. Om vinteren, når denne massive kroppen av strømmende vann er helt frosset over, kanalen omdannes til verdens største skøytebane. Dette alene er et syn nok til å gjøre turen.
Også Gatineau Park er en annen park som reflekterer naturens skjønnhet som vil ta pusten fra seg. Parken er enorm. Pink Lake-turen er et must se. Denne parken er fantastisk med unike planter og dyreliv, en kan sykle, campingturer som gir fred og ro til ens liv, man kan også gå rundt Pink Lake, og tar ca 20 minutter å gå rundt innsjøen. Det kalles Pink Lake, men faktisk er det grønt som gjenspeiler ulike typer mineraler. Dette er grunnen til at den sannsynligvis heter Pink Lake etter den rosa familien.
Også, hvis man ønsker å være mer eventyrlystne, har Skyline-stien gode utsikter, spesielt spektakulære i høst. Mackenzie-eiendommen (tidligere statsminister) er verdt turen. Ta kanoen din til Meech Lake. (Start på sti 40 og padle Nord - det er en kul strøm for å padle unna. Terrenget er veldig variert, utsikten er flott, stiene er godt merket, å komme dit med bil er en bris, og parkering er lett. Noen av stiene er utfordrende, og involverer mye klatring, forstrømming, og så videre. Men noen av stiene er enkle å gjøre i turgåingsko, så det er virkelig noe for alle. Den vakreste tiden på året er på høsten. Bladene blir farge og det er den vakreste scenen. Du kan gå i timevis og barn kan nyte å spille i bladene. Vakkert om vinteren og sommeren for folk som liker å sykle om sommeren og snøskoen om vinteren. Helt nydelig!
