A Getaway to Niagara On The Lake


Governor's Walk - http://www.vrbo.com

“Governor’s Walk”
Hubby has been keeping a crazy work schedule of late, so with a long weekend upon us we decided to relocate the family for 2nights and spend some quality time together in a beautiful part of the world – Niagara On The Lake, about 15minutes from Niagara Falls (Canada side)
Using a fantastic website www.vrbo.com we organised this adventure less than 36 hours before arriving, and can I say the booking process was extremely easy.  I highly recommend you consider this website when searching for accommodation – It is Vacation Rentals By Owners (world wide) and because you are dealing with the owners (90% of the time) the properties are well cared for and well loved, so you get that personal touch you sometimes ‘miss out’ on from hotels, motels, and agency owned apartments. We have stayed in many places booked through “vrbo” and to date have been 110% satisfied with all our bookings.
Which brings me to our latest booking at Governor’s Walk
We arrived earlier than scheduled, place a phone call to the owners and within 10 minutes they were there to greet us, give us a brief tour of the house, then off they went, leaving us to enjoy our vacation rental. 
And what a home away from home it was.  The pictures and description of Governor’s Walk from the website were ‘spot on’  Spacious, clean, charming, great location and extremely comfortable for this family of six.
This is a gorgeous part of the world, Governor’s Walk is a wonderful place to stay and retreat to after enjoying many exciting activities during the day.  I highly recommend Governor’s Walk if you are considering visiting/staying in Niagara On The Lake for your next holiday.
If you are wondering I haven’t been offered any incentive for this review, just offering up my humble opinion in the hope of making someone else’s accommodation decision a little easier.

    Thank you for reminding me that there are beautiful getaways in our own backyard. It’s nice looking at Canada through your eyes.:)
