On June 5 the owner confirmed our reservation. However, the owner booked our reservation in the wrong month. The owner booked our dates in September but I had requested dates in October. On September 18, following numerous email requests, the owner confirmed the correct dates were reserved. In this email the owner also significantly increased our nightly rate.
I brought many of the above concerns to the owner's attention but the owner's replies, when the owner chose to reply, were unresponsive and not helpful. For example, when I advised the owner about the lack of toilet paper the owner ignored my email and we bought our own. When I advised the owner about the kitchen lights that didn't work the owner emailed that the kitchen was small and we didn't need more lights.
This get-away was a family visit. My husband and I coming from Vancouver, our daughters and their families coming from Thunder Bay and the Ottawa Valley. This is not an "executive single home". As one daughter said "It's a student dorm". The accommodations were a great disappointment and I do not recommend this property.
Not an Executive Home
This is not an executive home. Owner was very good a quick response but there was garbage in garage that smelled. Screen door was not working right. There was no book for house rules, attractions, restaurants and even what is expected when checking out. We did strip beds, put garbage in garage and left towels as per owners request upon emailing. Also have rental property I would make a few suggestions. We survived and enjoyed out time in Ottawa.
Good house in a good location but owner should spend more time making sure things are right.
When we arrived the laundry wasn't done: one load drying another one the floor to be washed. The kitchen cupboards contained empty boxes and bottles. The livingroom floor needed cleaning. There was no microwave, the BBQ was "being replaced" and so were the placemats. A dresser in the master bedroom would have been a good thing. Didn't appear to be more than 3 channels on TV or any games for the X box. A binder with local attractions, businesses and restaurants and instructions on how to use the Netflix etc would have been helpful.
Great location and amenities very family friendly
Stayed for a weekend with family members. Loved that there was a gaming system and Netflix for the kids! Owner was very responsive to texts and messages, even set up an additional air matress!
The hot tub was a great addition to our family vacation.
Although the back yard was covered in snow, it looked like a wonderful deck to enjoy in the warmer weather.
Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Orleans.
Great Property with Wonderful Location
The owner was one of the best communicators I have had the pleasure of dealing with. We had a few mild SNAFUs but he was able to help clear them quickly and easily (lock was frozen when we got there, didn't realize fireplace was actually wood :-) ) . The house is well appointed in the kitchen with everything we needed, the bedrooms were spacious and the hot tub was a wonderful break from reality. The property is within an easy walk of the trails along the Ottawa River and had I thought to bring my snowshoes, would have been a fabulous hike. Downtown is about a 20 minute drive with traffic, but was close enough for us to shoot down and go skate on the Canal.
A written list of things would have been helpful to us. Charbel was great with responding to texts, but I don't like bothering hosts and we needed internet passwords, and the fireplace confusion as earlier mentioned. Otherwise, we had no issues whatsoever and throroughly enjoyed our Ottawa vacation. Would without a doubt stay again.
