New, bright, spacious, and fully furnished bachelor apartment located in a trendy downtown Ottawa neighbourhood two blocks from Rideau Canal. Apartment is located in the basement of our single family home and is accessed via a shared side entrance.
We live in a 2 1/2 storey brick century home that we have been busily renovating over the past five years. The apartment is located in the basement of our new kitchen addition which was constructed in 2012. The basement was constructed with the intention of using it as an apartment, so it was built (inspected by the city) to include an extra large egress window (lets in lots of natural light), hard wired CO2/smoke detector, soundproofing insulation and radiant heat flooring (for winter comfort).
Guests will have access to shared laundry on the main floor of the house and are welcome to enjoy our newly installed patio and gardens. There is parking available on the street and in our laneway.
Общение с гостями
The side entrance to the apartment brings you in to our kitchen, so it's likely we will see each other now and then. We are quite friendly and are happy to advise on sight seeing, restaurants and any other questions you may have.
Also, if staying with us over the weekend, you are welcome to join our family for pancakes on Saturday - there is always space at our table :)
Другие важные подробности
The apartment is located beneath our kitchen so at times you will hear some noise in the mornings (7:30-8:30am - later on weekends) and evenings (4-6pm) as we prepare our meals and go about our daily routines. My husband works from home in an office adjacent to the apartment (we have separate access to the basement - as the apartment only takes up half our basement) so it's also possible that you will hear him on the phone during weekday working hours. Otherwise, the apartment is quiet.
We are happy to share our home with you. In return, we ask that you treat it gently and with respect.
