Общение с гостями
We live downstairs with our dog and cat (they do not have access to the apartment or driveway but our dog does have free run of the backyard). We will be away for November and part of December but have a team of co-hosts living in our house to facilitate the airbnb while we are gone. Feel free to knock on the front door at any time to say hi to Cass, Keegan and Alex!
We will quickly respond to text messages if you need anything. You can always come and knock on our door too!
If you would like advice on things to do while in the area, we have many suggestions. Just ask!

Despite being animal-lovers ourselves, we cannot accept pets/animals in our apartment as we have a family member with an allergy and we want to keep the space pet-free for when they come to stay.
I'm a government research scientist in Ottawa and my partner (Doug) and I have recently started hosting guests at the upstairs apartment in our large house in Britannia Village. We have a cat and dog (Spike and Isabelle) and like to garden, cook, camp and canoe, and dream about vacationing and travel. We are quiet and tidy and have had good experiences with AirBnB so far (both hosting and being guests)! In the summer we spend most of our time at our camp in the Rideau Lakes area. Our friends Cass, Alex and Keegan do a great job of hosting if we are out of town.
