The house is a cozy 3 bedroom that was extremely comfortable for our family. The front living area also has a sofa bed. Both bathrooms are upstairs as are 2 of the bedrooms. There is also a small sitting area so the place is very flexible if the group wants to be together or have their own space. The back deck is huge with lots of seating. The kitchen is stocked with more gear than we could use and also numerous spices and condiments. It is an older home but with some recent renovations and well looked after and well decorated to suit the style. The location is very close to downtown (we walked to Rideau Centre and Byward Market - about 40 minutes). The listing describes the neighbourhood quite well - not the most upscale but safe.
