Wonderful Place for a Mother-and-Daughter Stay
This is a lovely 1 bedroom unit and perfect for a Mother-and-Daughter stay. The kitchen was well equipped and it was nice to have access to the backyard. The property manager was very responsive and welcoming. Highly recommend!

5/5 Excellent

Great Location
Elcho’s property is located on a quiet street in Sandy Hill. It was a 30 second walk to the RIDEAU river and 10 minutes to the canal. It was a 20 minute walk to the Byward market. The available bikes allowed us to ride all over Ottawa. A car was not necessary. The place was very clean and they were responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely stay again.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely 2 Bdrm In Ottawa
We had 2 employees stay here for 2 weeks and the place was perfect - spacious, clean, with a kitchen stocked with all the cooking essentials. Elcho was quick to respond and her husband Dan was available to help the guys with anything they needed. Should we have work again in Ottawa, we will definitely stay with Elcho and Dan again.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely apartment
