A completely modernized and huge flat-style apartment in a “century” structure in Ottawa’s central Lowertown East neighborhood. The apartment is part of a purpose-built duplex constructed in 1892 in a residential enclave bordered by the bank of the Rideau River (at Wurtemburg St.), St. Patrick St. and Cobourg St. The area is increasingly referred to as Macdonald Gardens because it encompasses the historic Macdonald Gardens Park.

Transit is also available: major transit routes serving Ottawa and with connections to Gatineau are located on the next corner at Cobourg St. The property has excellent access to the Macdonald-Cartier Intraprovincial Bridge to Gatineau, Highways 5 North and 50 East.

Neighborhood amenities (within 15 minute walk) include 2 indoor pools (one is a 2 minute walk), a public, outdoor NHL-sized skating rink, the Rideau River path system for running/walking, two major grocery stores, specialty shops and restaurants in the Byward Market and New Edinburgh, an independent movie theatre, and more.

This three-bedroom (floor plan available on request) flat is exceptionally clean and comfortable. There are new mattresses, linens and dishes, high-quality modern and vintage Scandinavian furnishings, and a fantastic 50' plasma flat-screen. The apartment has its own furnace, central air conditioning and on-demand hot water service.

About Allison

I live in the downstairs apartment with my family and I work for the Parliament of Canada. Originally from Vancouver,British Columbia, we moved to Ottawa 13 years ago and love it.

I like to get places on foot and this location is perfect. The downtown CBD is 30 mins of walking. Governor General's and Rideau Falls are 30 mins in the other direction. Byward Market is 15 and New Edinburgh village is 15 the other way.

Je parle français. Yo hablo espagnol.

Allison purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Allison chose Ottawa

We love the neighbourhood. Is is a quiet downtown suburb: close to everything with a mix of families and young professionals. We moved to this property in order to have some 'fun' gutting and renovating an old building.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is beautifully laid out with large dining and living rooms as well as three bedrooms nicely spaced out in separate corners of the apartment. The large, private, covered, balcony is a gorgeous place to sit and have a coffee or glass of wine in any weather. There are windows on every side of the house so the light is always streaming in somewhere.

Great value - comfortable, well-located and exceptionally well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

Allison's place in Lower Town (walking distance to the Byward Market) is far more spacious - three bedrooms! dining room! living room with places to sit! eat-in kitchen! - than I have seen in other Air B&Bs, which tend to cram a couch into the kitchen and call it a livingroom. The place is clean, comfortable and better equipped with food and other amenities than any other I've stayed in. She very thoughtfully stocked the fridge with eggs, milk, cream & butter and there is a selection of fruit, cereals and spreads as well - anything you could want for your first breakfast or snack on arrival. She runs a food catering business as well, and we availed ourselves of one of her very reasonably priced evening meals when friends dropped by for a visit. There's parking, and recycling, and and and ... All in all, a really great place to use as a base for a 6-day visit to attend a wedding and connect with friends in our home town (we're based in Europe for a few days).

Very good, well equipped, kind & considerate owner

  • 4 of 5

We had a really good time - great amenities although anyone with balance issues would be challenged by the sloping floors.

Great place to stay in Ottawa

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It is very well stocked with essential supplies and more. There were toys for our granddaughter and other equipment that was useful. We loved sitting on the spacious balcony in the evening. We would definitely recommend it to others, especially families.

We gave this rental 5 stars the first time we stayed. We returned and it was even better. Allison pays extraordinary attention to the details that make her guests comfortable.

Very well kept. Clean, nicely appointed, spacious, great neighbourhood.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this lovely old home. The little extras that Allison provided were very much appreciated. The whole apartment was spacious and very clean and comfortable. It was wonderful to sit on the front porch with our coffee in the mornings. The kitchen had everything we needed to self-cater. The location was perfect - an easy walk to downtown Ottawa. I wouldn't change a thing about it. It was full of charm and character. We would definitely stay there again.
