Who here knows about the struggle of finding THE perfect apartment in Ottawa? Because I know I do.
It's either the location is perfect but the price is NOT. Or, the classic amazing apartment that has the horrible landlord. Plus, on top of all that, you want cool neighbours. Either way, there seems to always be something that makes the process more complicated then it needs to be and much more stressful than anyone should have to go through.
Well, if any of the above relates to you, the good news is that there's a solution for you. These beautiful Envie apartments are the answer to all of your apartments woes!
All-inclusive, great location, good community vibe and a totally reasonable price, these are basically the perfect place to call home.
First let's talk location. Situated right in Ottawa's Little Italy (AKA pastry/gelato heaven) and only a 10 minute bus to downtown and 5 minute bus ride to Carleton - the location truly cannot be beat. It has a neighbourhood feel but walk a block away and you're surrounded by bumping bars and plenty of cute coffee shops to study/grab a cheap cappuccino at.
And who else is looking for an amazing vibe? If you're missing living close to cool people, then this is the place for you. Envie has two towers that are side-by-side, with a courtyard that'll connect the both of them. Envie Plus is brand new, being released for May and geared towards young professionals and mature students who want a fully-furnished, worry-free place to live, but still want to enjoy all the perks of Envie Student next door. Whatever you're into, there's a place for you at Envie... and people you can connect with in a (closed!) Envie resident only Facebook group.
Not to mention, social activities like Bachelorette & Superbowl nights, fitness classes, career-building workshops and a weekly grocery bus. Honestly, these apartments are legit the best place to stay if you're a student or if you've just graduated or started your career.
Now for the good stuff - what do they mean by all-inclusive? Envie apartments come fully furnished, with a bed, a desk, a flat screen TV, stainless steel appliances, private washrooms, ensuite laundry, couches... the list goes on. Plus wifi and utilities are INCLUDED. 'Kay, is it just me or is this starting to sound like the best deal you've ever heard of? All you basically have to do is show up and bring your beautiful self. YASSSS KWEEN!
The building has sweet perks too. Things like a 24-hour reception/on-site security, a fantastic gym and an awesome penthouse that is a shared space for all the residents to hang out chill and get to know each other.
Guys, just look at that penthouse! It's usually open to anyone and is a great way to meet people in the building. And that view! Plus if you're hosting a party, you can even rent it out for a few hours. Hello hostess with the mostest!
Rent starts at a super reasonable $660/month and they have everything from single apartments to shared quads. There's even a roommate matching system if you don't want to live alone.
Right now there is only the Little Italy location, but a downtown Rideau location is on the way!
Basically, if you're wondering where to live this year, Envie has got you covered. All you have to do is choose the apartment that works best for you and then you are done! Do not waste a minute, people - if you're in the market for a new place, check out Envie apartments 'cause it literally doesn't get easier than this!
You can actually go check out Envie apartments every Saturday - that's when they host their open houses. Oh, and PS? They've also got one seriously sweet $500 cashback promotion going down.
