A colleague and I stayed 5 days on business in February. Everything was exactly as advertised. Lots of detail, lots of interesting elements. Fully stocked--I even found a travel mug, thermos, water bottle and other amenities to make a home away from home. Two grocery stores a few minutes walk away, a shawarma place across the street for some take-out (pick it up and enjoy it at "home"), even larger grocery a 5 minute drive away if you have a car. Buses stop on the block but you can also walk just about anywhere downtown. The parking space is very convenient, but I wouldn't recommend a big car. It's a little tight in the parking area (especially with snow!)
Read the big binder when you get there--important instructions for the TVs, appliances, etc (although the assistant who greeted us did walk us through the important things).
The single thing that was a little surprising to me initially was that I had pictured a residential street; it's a mostly residential neighborhood, but the building itself is actually on a more commercial street. So as I approached, I found myself thinking "hmmm...", but the unit itself is great and we enjoyed the location. The front room (living/dining) has some street noise, but quiets down at night. Bedrooms and kitchen were quiet at all times.
Assistant was present at the appointed time to check us in and was helpful. The only reason I give check-in 4 stars is because, like many (or maybe most) home/apartment rentals, you need to plan your arrival time because someone will be meeting you.
Thinking of going back to Ottawa in the summer with my family; if we do, I'll try to stay there again.

I would just like to thank you on behalf of our group.
We found your home to be perfect for our four day adventure.
We have stayed in many rental holiday homes around the world
and your home certainly is top for quality and cleanliness.
Our previous favourite was in Napier New Zealand and we did not believe this could be ever topped
but you proved us wrong.
We feal a special thank you should also go to Daniel, he is without a doubt the best ambassador
or greeter that we have encountered, so please pass on our thanks to him. Read more
We are so pleased that our guests recognize the extra efforts we make to ensure their stay with us is exceptional. We understand, through our own travels, the importance of the accommodations, and that it will determine whether the trip was memorable or not. Every guest who has stayed at our historical condo over the past two years has given us rave reviews. We are hopeful our future guests will feel the same and we are always striving to make our home better.
Perfect and as described

We stayed at this condo for 5 nights during the middle of September 2011. As promised we were met upon arrival and shown everything we needed to know about the condo. It was spotlessly clean upon arrival and every convenience was in place - from towels, soap, tourist information to spices in the spice rack. We truly felt like we were at home during our stay. Tv, internet connection and air conditioner worked flawlessly. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and can wholeheartedly recommended same to to anyone looking for clean, quite, centralized accommodation in a charming part of town. The bus stop right outside conveniently took us to everywhere we needed to go in Ottawa. Groceries and other supplies can be found within a 3 minute walk. The pizza at the pub/restaurant kitty corner from the condo was excellent. When we next visit Ottawa, we are making a point to reserve well in advance to stay here again!
Excellent Condo in Ottawa
Left on 09/06/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Ozzie3
Three of us stayed in this well appointed and very comfortable unit in august 2011. Our stay was only for 3 nights but we would have liked to have stayed longer. We were met on arrival by Daniel who proved to be very helpful and available 24 hours per day should we have needed anything.
The location of the unit on Rideau Street is perfect, close enough to the city to walk, or a bus is just outside. If you are going to Ottawa and want a great place to stay, then look no further, you will not be disappointed. Highly recommended.

Good location, lovely colours in the flat! Exelent air conditions and a nice place to sit outside.Tthe most impression to me was that the owners trustet those who rent the flat, all this nice cups, glasses etc. just like beeing in a very very nice home. Also very nice with Daniel that met us, and helped us with everything. Great stay!
We have guests who visit us from all over the world and what they say consistently is that the amenities are more than any other place they have stayed. We pride ourselves on what we offer our guests and are pleased that everyone feels they are getting value for the price.
This property is a find!

This is a place to return to in any season. Well located for walking and bus travel, lovely furnishings, plentiful cooking and serving equipment and unsurpassed attention to detail. We found the service very responsive.

We stayed at this property for 3 nights in april 2011. It was exceptionally well equipped and clean. The owner has spared no expense, yet is relaxed enough to allow you to eat anything in the pantry and simply note if anything runs out. The bed was firm, the bedding was warm, and the internet was fast and reliable. Very creative use of space and bold design, too. A little street noise comes in the front from the big street, but the back is serene and safe (we slept with the window open a crack), and the dedicated parking spot is a great plus. Being on a big street also meant that we could catch a bus to anywhere, but we mostly walked - Parliament hill is 2km down the street.

For anyone looking for a home away from home while in Ottawa, this is the place! My friend, her daughter and I just came back from a week in Ottawa. We were out every day and found that we were always so happy to come back to this oasis of tranquility.
Our favourite spot was the kitchen, although the rest of the place was great too. What a great collection of cookbooks to browse through and the kitchen is even better stocked than my one at home. We would pick up some food from the nearby grocery stores and specialty shops and just sit and chat in the kitchen.
It is an easy stroll to the Byward Market shops and restaurants which makes it a fabulous location. Can't wait to go back to Ottawa again, and hopefully we can stay here again.

Head and shoulders above any hotel in the area!!

I have been meaning to send in comments for months and I am glad I am finally doing it.
I stayed at this condo in December and are now re-booking for the summer. When I went on this site yesterday and I read all the comments that have been added since my stay, I felt compelled to write my own comments because this place is so much better than even the photos suggest.
I encourage you to book early because, for my return trip in July, not all of my choice dates are available so I am splitting my time with a hotel. I don't care about the inconvenience because this place is worth it.

Wow what a place
Left on 03/06/2011 for a stay in February 2011 | Tim & Diane
This condo is everything the pictures show and more. Best kitchen I have ever worked in and the rest of condo is remarkable as well. Great service provided at all times, from booking - to Daniel meeting us to show us around the condo. We will stay here every opportunity we get when visiting Ottawa. Thanks for a memorable 4 days. .

Having Daniel greet the guests upon their arrival and giving them a quick tour really helps the guests settle in comfortably.

Great Condo, Great Weekend!
Left on 02/25/2011 for a stay in February 2011 | Brent & Terry
This apartment was everything we had hoped for; the location was convenient to every place we wanted to go. The condo is very clean, well equipped, decorated with taste & just the right touches here and there. The kitchen is amazing and well-stocked with all kinds of utensils, dishes, glasses, etc. above and beyond what was described. We and our friends, felt very much at home. Two questions: Would I recommend it to others? And would I stay there again? The answer is absolutely on both accounts, it will be our first call on our next trip to Ottawa. Read more
So glad that your boys enjoyed the PS3 and you loved the homey comfort of the decor. We did not want the place to feel "stuffy" so pleased to hear that our guests feel relaxed.

Great central place to stay in Ottawa
Left on 02/12/2011 for a stay in February 2011 | DELC
All four people in our party thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful condo. It truly is beautifully designed and decorated and the "culinary chef's kitchen" is so well stocked with specialty foods, spices & herbs, vinegars & oils, pastas and rice and so much more...that it makes you feel "at home" immediately. There is nothing missing in this condo! We were able to have a friend for lunch while we were there. I was able to prepare and serve the meal right there. It was so much better than going to a restaurant.. We spent seven nights in this condo and it was just so enjoyable to return to after a day of activity and sightseeing in Ottawa. It truly is within walking distance of the highlights of Ottawa. If you want to travel a little further to the outskirts of the city, public transportation is literally 10 steps from your front door. I would certainly return to this condo if I return to the city and will definitely recommend it to my friends and family.
Beautiful decor. All the comforts of home. Close to everything.

This condo is a small oasis a 5-min walk from the main attractions of downtown Ottawa. The condo has a plethora of design and culinary charms, given that the owner, a graduate from a prestigious culinary school, has shared her passion for the culinary arts by providing us renters with a fully equipped kitchen.
The area of town is safe, the bed comfortable, and the living room spacious. The entertainment system is tops and there are 2 supermarkets a few minutes walking distance. One of our better stays, with excellent service from the owner.
