The house is 5 minutes walk to downtown, Byward Market and Rideau Mall area where the upcoming public transit and future LRT is coming. It is 10 mins walk to the parliament building. Also, it’s close to Ottawa river with beautiful parks and trails behind the property.
The day you were staying in Ottawa was the most rainiest week of the year. The weather was extremely damp, after few weeks of extremely hot days and it was at very high humid index.
I did a site visit for inspection and there were no concerns with respect to floor. Also, service calls were done with our following guests who have assured there is no leaks or any dampness inside the property. The sticky feet could be based on the in and out of property.
You stayed with us for one night and I am sorry to hear you felt so.
Here is a snapshot from Ottawa CTV news for the statements above.
Published Tuesday, July (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) AM EDT
Ottawa was soaked by a record rainfall.
Environment Canada says 43 mm of rain fell at the Ottawa Airport on Monday. That set a new record for greatest rainfall on July 23. The previous record for greatest rainfall was 35.2 mm set on July 23, 1994.
Environment Canada had issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Ottawa on Monday.
After a dry start to the summer, Ottawa has received 59 mm of rain in two days this week.
A few words about the property :
There is hardwood and laminate floors throughout the house with no carpeted areas and natural cleaning products are used for maintenance. The pictures were taken in bright day light as there is ample natural light in the house and a skylight which even keeps the staircase bright during day. All 3 bathrooms were fully renovated in spring 2016 wall to wall with new bath and light fixtures in addition of pot lights over all shower area. The safety protocol upgrades like, smoke detectors were undertaken as well. The basement floor and paint was also re-done at same time. The pics are true reflection of the house but I am sorry to say your dark rainy day experience may have made you felt otherwise. In fact, what is not in pictures are the now more comfortable dining chairs (as per feedback from guests) and a new grey couch (bought last month).
Also, there are 2 parking spots via private lane (one inside garage and one in front of it) and a cozy backyard at the house which is a rare find for downtown. Out of 4 bedrooms, only one bedroom is facing the main street, and if the window of this bedroom is closed, the noise should be very minimal. Rest 3 bedrooms are facing towards the back of property which is quiet.
