About the Homestay
We are a family of four. My two children go to high school. I work in education and my husband is an author. Our house is 3 stores and very practically furnished. Guests have access to a private washroom, a living room and a bedroom. An extra bed is present in the fully furnished open concept basement for extra guests. The house is 2 min away from the bus station and to the Tangers shopping mall and 25 min by bus to Downtown Ottawa and Parliament. People come from Toronto and Quebec to Tangers as it provides brand names for cheaper prices. The garden is tranquil and conducive; adults do enjoy reading outside and being in nature. Guests with children have several opportunities to keep their children amused by taking them to the park which is across the street. The area is very safe and people are friendly and helpful.
As a family, we enjoy gardening, listening to music, and cooking new meals. We travel, enjoy swimming, kayaking and cycling. We speak three languages which facilitates communication with a wider range of guests and we always take good care of our guests.

The best homestay ever. Kate is a great host, flexible with schedules and arrangements and had the time to give us great tips. We had one entire floor for ourselves with lots of space to spare. It was all tidy and clean, with an amazing carpet, and has nice utilities (toaster, coffee machine, fridge, desk and even a rocking chair). Would love to stay there for much longer!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
This place is really cool, clean and well equipped! We had wonderful time there and it was a pity that our stay was short there!
Kate is super nice and kind.
Pictures are not fair, as they don't reflect how great the place is!
We'll definitely stay there again.
Great home to stay thank you
Kate is a very nice host. The house is clean, confortable and quiet. The district is new and wonderful. Loved it.
Excellent accueil , Kate à un grand sens de l'hospitalité , chambre très confortable , salle de bain privative et petit déjeuner copieux.
Kate est une personne très attachante, souriante et aidante. J'ai été accueillie comme un membre de la famille. La chambre est un vrai palace avec une salle de bain privée et super propre. Le petit déjeuner est tout ce qu'il y a de normal et bon. ll y a un mall ou on peut aller à pied. Le bus pour Downtown Ottawa à quelques mètres. Certes, le centre ville n'est pas tout près mais quel plaisir de se retrouver au calme après une journée bien remplie. Je recommande à toute personne voulant visiter Ottawa de ne pas hésiter une seule seconde d'aller chez Kate.
Merci pour votre accueil chaleureux. Chambre spacieuse et agréable, avec un lit confortable et le petit déjeuner était délicieux. L'emplacement est très calme et reposant.
