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.

Best rental home in Ottawa!

  • 5 of 5

No better place in Ottawa! We have stayed here multiple times and it is our home away from home.

Very clean, comfortable and well-stocked!

  • 5 of 5

Best rental experience we have ever had! Allison has thought of everything. Food for your first couple meals, kitchen is fuĺly stocked with good quality utensils (sharp knives!), appliances and condiments. We loved the espresso coffee maker. There was shampoo, etc. and everything you need to do laundry. The apartment was very clean, nice bedding, comfortable beds and a lovely, cozy balcony to relax on. The location is wonderful- a nice walk to everything Ottawa has to offer. Allison was so helpful, organized and professional. It was wonderful having A/C as it was hot weather when we were there. The unit has real charm and character. Our kids loved having their own space, lots of room to hang out. We loved the large dining table so we could eat together. There is a desk for a laptop and space to work. It is stocked with lots of toys and everything you need for toddlers and young children, yet our teens loved it too. Excellent experience!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time using VRBO for my husband and I, and it did not disappoint. We were in town for race weekend, and it was great to be able to cook our own meals. Allison has thought of everything, and was always quick to respond to any requests. Would definitely do it again!

Calm Oasis in Ottawa

  • 5 of 5

Allison's property exceeded our expectations. It was ideally located for central Ottawa attractions and events. Street parking was not an issue at all. The 3 bedroom suite, complete with a private deck, fully equipped kitchen stocked with all the basics and more, a cozy living room, and a clean, well lit bathroom contributed to a perfect national capital get-a-way.

Best place to stay in Ottawa - all the amenities of home.

  • 5 of 5

We always stay at one of Allison's apartments when we come to Ottawa. Everything is well organized (even with food in the refrigerator and pantry and a full range of soaps and creams in the bathroom), clean and comfortable. The apartment is spacious and very conveniently located. Excellent value for money. No question - best place in Ottawa!
