Beautiful and centrally located 3 bedroom house. Can sleep 12. Clean, modern design. Fully equipped. Perfect for larger families or a great getaway. Driveway for 2 cars side by side and street parking. Close to public transit and everything Ottawa.
This house is unique in that it can accommodates a larger group of people and they can all have their own private space. There are 3 bedrooms plus a loft space with a bed and 2 separate living spaces as well (living room, tv room). Lots of space to stretch out and relax. This house is not very personalized which makes it feel like you are staying at an upscale hotel as opposed to invading someone's personal home. Here's how a 3 bedroom house sleeps 12:
2 bedrooms with a queen bed = 4 people
1 bedroom with a double bed = 2 people
1 loft space with double futon = 2 people
1 queen pull out couch in living room = 2 people
1 large sectional couch in den or provided queen air mattress = 2 people
Guests get the full run of the house. I stay a few blocks away at a condo and am always available to answer any questions or help with any issues. After greeting you and showing you where everything is and how everything works I'll leave you the keys, printed instructions on everything in the house and a neighborhood guide book with restaurants, bars, groceries, coffee shops etc. The house has:
3 bedrooms (queen, queen, double)
2 bathrooms (one with a claw-foot tub, both with stand up showers)
Indoor and outdoor (in summer) living room (sectional couch in living room is a queen pull out)
Indoor and outdoor (in summer) dining room
Den with 50" LED TV with full cable
Beautiful 3rd floor loft space accessible by ship ladder with double futon
Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and all standard condiments
All bedding and towels are provided
Unfinished but tidy basement (with ping pong, darts, and laundry)
2 side by side driveway parking spaces (no car shuffling needed).
I like to greet my guests at the house to give them a tour and show them where everything is and where the contact numbers, emergency numbers, instruction sheets for air conditioning/heating/TV/Stereo/wireless etc. are all located. After that I'm out of the house but will be only a few blocks away for any questions you need answered. If I'm not available to greet you I'll give you detailed instructions on how to get into the house on the day of arrival and all house and neighborhood guidebooks will be printed and ready for you.
All instructions for TV, wi-fi, stereo, air conditioning / furnace etc will be printed out for you in the house. I'll also provide lists and directions of favorite places, pharmacies, grocery stores, coffee shops, convenience stores, gas stations, etc.
For the sake of complete transparency I've installed video doorbells outside the front and side doors of my house. This enables me to see the exact number of people coming, going and staying at the house. I've only done this because I had one bad group who had 60 people in the house for a party. One bad apple as they say.
This is a fully detached house. Noise can be made to a certain degree but I'm an exceptionally good neighbor and hope that my guests will also be good neighbors. At 11:00pm every night I expect people to move inside from the outside spaces. If you are a smoker and want to go outside for a smoke after 11pm please do so individually, not in a group and be quiet while your out there. I have a designated, ventilated smoking space for winter inside the house in the basement. If you are listening to music in the house I expect all windows to be kept closed after 11pm so as not to disturb the neighbors. I expect the house to be returned to me almost as you found it. I'm happy to do a bunch of laundry but I'm not happy to do your dishes, take out your garbage and empties, clean spills on floors etc.

I've been hosting for nearly 3 years and I've attained Airbnb Superhost status which ensures guests a worry free perfect stay.
Guests visiting my home will be ensured run of the house privacy but also can rest assured that if they have a question I'm a phone call away at any time. When guests stay at my home I stay only a few blocks away so I'm available if you need anything.
I'm an easy going person and I have a lot of house pride. I keep my home clean and ready for guests and I enjoy being a host here in Ottawa. I love to tell people all the great things there are to do here.
