The SpaceThe guests' room is private and simple yet comfortable. The apartment is not modern but everyone who stayed with me can tell you it is quite big, clean, cozy and friendly. Although it is located on the ground level, there's plenty of natural light coming in. Guest AccessGuests will have their own private room, but will share with me: bathroom, kitchen, dining room and living room. A cable TV is available in the living room. All the appliances (fridge, stove, oven, washer/dryer) can be used by guests. There's a small terrasse that give on a nice green yard with big trees where you'll find the neighbours' kids playing after school. Interaction with GuestsWhen not at work, I may be home relaxing (watching TV, reading, cooking, etc.), or out for the day or evening. I like to have dinner parties with friends. I am very open-minded and like to meet people from all around the world. I believe in cross-cultural dialogue and enjoy learning about others' culture. If you have no plan for dinner (on weekends that is) you are welcome to join me for a delicious homemade meal, I'll be delighted to cook for you! The NeighborhoodThe partment is only a 10-minute walk from some of the Gatineau Park's paths, an 15-minute drive from downtown Ottawa, and a 5-minute drive from the quaint village of Old Chelsea where you'll find restaurants, a nordik spa, a golf court, nice boutiques, and the Gatineau Park Information Centre. You will enjoy all the advantages of the country side in town!
The apartment is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. There's a convenience store with ATM and gas station just 150 meters from the apartment, a pizza and ice cream place about 300 meters from the apartment, a park with soccer field, basketball court, tennis court, skate park, children's water play park, picnic area, and bike paths about 500 meters from the apartment. Highway to downtown Ottawa is 2 blocks away. Getting AroundThere are 2 bus lines running on the boulevard where I live. A bus stop is just 75 meters from the door. One of the lines goes to downtown Ottawa.
The apartment building is not right on the street, therefore it is not easy to see and find it, especially if you arrive after nightfall. If you have trouble finding the place, you can give me a call and I'll meet you on the street. The door is on the side of the building, close to the hedge. Other Things to Note*Self-service continental breakfast is offered on week days as I usually don't have time to cook breakfast before going to work. However, on weekends it will be my pleasure to cook a full hot breakfast for you.
**Please note that some renovations were done to the apartment lately. All the floors were changed, there's no more rug. The living room furniture was also updated. So until I find time to take new pictures and post them on the site, the pictures are not quite accurate.
