Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


This is a beautiful Ottawa Region retirement setting, still very new, offering the best you can imagine in seniors' living. Chef-prepared dining, all new facilities, and a bevy of other luxuries are all important components of life here.

There's everything you might want here. The variety of exceptional features includes the V!VAlinks Golf Simulator, an indoor saltwater pool, and an onsite spa, complete with a resident massage therapist. The location is also hard to beat: close to the heart of Ottawa, but just far enough away from the busy downtown. On the west it's very accessible to the 416 (making it easy for family to visit), and to the east there is Stonebridge Golf Club and excellent walking paths along the scenic Rideau. To the north, there's all that central Ottawa offers: tourist sites, museums, Byward Market and other shopping.
