    A flat, overnight place in a quiet neighborhood. The city is easily accessible by public transport. Bus stops 5min walk from the house. Had good contact with hosts via e-mail. We left a message in the box next door. Thank you Hosts, we enjoyed the beautiful, cozy city.

    I appreciated Roger’s kindness and helpful sightseeing advice. He offered help with the bus app and schedule and biking in the city. He’s genuine and sincere. Parking at Roger’s place and getting to and from the city was quick and easy. I biked in once and drove in twice. I noticed street noise the first night but got used to it and was not bothered the next two nights. I felt safe all three nights. I wish I could have met Liv and heard more about their travels together. Sounds like they’ve had some fun times! I hope to visit Quebec City again and will definitely request to stay at Roger’s.

    Roger is awesome. A very generous host. We had electricity and water and he even offered wifi access. He made sure we knew we could reach out should we need anything. He accomodated our trailer and tow vehicle, which was going the extra mile and we appreciate that. He made us feel comfortable. He showed me his camper van. We chit chatted here and there as time allowed. The site is close to a bike trail that takes you into Saint Charles River Park or the city and a 10 minutes drive to old Quebec City area. SuperC (supermarket) is also close by. We would definitely stay again, if allowed. Thank you for your kindness Roger!!!
