We attended a funeral recently in Ottawa and Donald's place was the perfect place to stay for our family of five. We loved the clean and spacious townhouse with its beautiful decor and comfortable beds and linens. Communication with Donald was excellent and, despite not being in town during our stay, he was very quick to respond to any inquiries we had. Would highly recommend!

Thank you Heather. You were the first guests we've had while out of town (a daunting experience) and you made it very easy for us. Considering we were both attending family funerals at the same time I hope next time you are in Ottawa, we can share a glass of wine over happier circumstances. You were fantastic guests and we'd love to have you back.

Donald's place is amazing. First of all, the newly renovated kitchen is beautiful and the whole townhouse overall is very spacious. I came with my family for the Thanksgiving weekend and it was perfect for the 6 of us. We were amazed with how spotless and clean the place was, as well as the decor which is very modern and tasteful! The location is perfect, its a quiet neighbourhood, beautifully maintained and only took us about 7-10 mins max to get from Donald's place to the heart of downtown. We will definitely be coming back here! If you want to enjoy a beautiful, super clean and spacious house, stay at Donald's place! He was also super courteous through emails and responded right away to any questions I had.

Loved the unit, ample sleeping space and bathrooms for our family of 5. Clean overall, towels and toiletries were provided (though suggest you bring your own body wash as this was absent in one of the bathrooms). Lack of WiFi was inconvenient but not a showstopper. Got about 4-5 HD TV channels using antenna, was hoping for a cable subscription. Overall, we loved the place, it was neat and very organized and convenient for a downtown Ottawa excursion (about a <10 min drive from Parliament hill).

Response from Donald:
Thanks for your comments Rohin, we are glad you found it convenient for downtown. Just a note that in our listing under amenities, it states that we have tv, but NOT cable tv. Also, we only provide limited toiletries (e.g. body wash) as a courtesy if guests have left their own products at home. We do not as a standard provide personal toiletries for guests. I'm sorry if you expected otherwise.

About Donald

I'm a career military officer who loves travel, architecture and the outdoors.

This home is the first home my wife and I bought together, we only lived in it for 10 months before being posted again.
Now that we are back in Ottawa for a short time, we hope you will enjoy our home as much as we have.
It's a great location, convenient to anything you need.
