About this listing
This room is flooded with sunlight and has it's own private balcony overlooking Parc Avenue in the Mile End. There is a comfy Queen bed, large closet and dresser so lots of room for you and your stuff.
We have a beautiful room with a private balcony onto Park Avenue in a spacious apartment in the Mile End. The room has a comfortable queen bed, as well as a huge closet and teak dresser with mirror. Shared bathroom and kitchen. Our place is huge, providing everyone with a lot of privacy, which is great for us and you alike! It is an un-renovated gem, full of original mouldings and wood floors, furnished with many vintage pieces.
Within a 5 minute walk of our place you will find both St.Viateur Bagels and Fairmount Bagels, Cafe Olympico, Club Social, and all the other landmarks of this fabulous part of Montreal. Bars and restaurants galore, all kinds of art and music are happening around here all the time. The 80 bus departs every 10 minutes from in front of our house to ferry you downtown, and Bixi stations are at every corner allowing for easy access to any part of the city you wish to explore. The Clark bikepath is just a few blocks over from our place.
No matter what you'd like to do in Montreal, our place is both incredibly well situated and connected to the rest of the city, and a peaceful refuge after a long day.
You will have access to all the shared spaces in our home (dining room, kitchen, shared bathroom, back balcony) as well as to your own private balcony.
We think we live in the best nighborhood anywhere. Have a look for yourselves!
In general we expect respectful behaviour, and general cleanliness, especially if using the kitchen frequently. We have a great space for hanging out and listening to music, but we try to be respectful of our neighbours and we expect the same of our guests.
Breagh's warmth and openness made the apartment feel like home. Two other guests were there as well, and everyone interacted with ease--so relaxing when you're far from home. This apartment has quite a story. Ask about its history, what accounts for its quirky angles, the Bohemian feel. This is a neat place to land if you want to live like a local and be right where the action is. Fantastic neighborhood for walking, and just kicking back in the city.
This was my second time staying with Breagh and Liam, and if I had the choice I'd return again every time I'm in Montreal. They're such kind hosts, I only wish our time in the apartment overlapped more. The bedroom has lots of light, a breeze from the terrace, a nice view onto the street below. The neighborhood has a distinct feel from the downtown area, lively in its own way and a real pleasure to walk around.
Breagh and Liam made me feel very welcome. They are friendly and kind and provide a very relaxed environment. The room overlooked avenue du parc---a very cosmopolitan neighborhood. The room was spacious and bright, clean and colourful and the bed was fabulously comfortable. They both speak french (and other languages) and have wonderfully interesting friends and colleagues
The room is nice and spacious, with lots of light and a private balcony. Overall, the apartment is nicely situated in the lovely neighborhood of Mile End with lots of cafes and restaurants and easy access to buses going downtown.
Would recommend to anyone who's looking for a less touristy and local experience while staying in Montreal!
My hosts were terrific and I truly enjoyed my stay. The picture of the bedroom is accurate and I had a wonderful stay in this three bedroom apartment. Avenue du Parc is a busier commercial street but sleeping with ear plugs would be recommended. Very central to several restaurants and good shopping nearby for all your basic needs. Transit by bus and metro was very convenient.
My hosts made me feel most welcome and I felt at home.
I booked this place for my dad while he was in Mtl visiting my brother and myself. He had a great time and really appreciated the gracious hosts and awesome location! Thanks Breagh and Liam !!
Breagh and Liam were wonderful hosts! We were barely there as we were there for a festival that filled most of the weekend, but they were incredibly accommodating, leaving us keys, towels, lovely clean linens, and a beautiful sunny room with a balcony. The location in Mile End is very central and couldn't have been more convenient for our purposes. The apartment is funky and spacious and pretty. Sweet dog and cat.

About the Host, Breagh & Liam
Liam and I (Breagh) are both from the East Coast of Canada, but have happily made our home here in Montreal. After many years we continue to be amazed by the vibrancy of this city. So much art, music, food, cultural stuff in general going on all the time it is really incredible. In the summer it's hard to keep up!
Liam runs a video production company just down the street, and I am studying to be a yoga instructor and work at a super fun local hangout called Nouveau Palais. We think we live in one of the best areas, well anywhere really, really low key, tonnes of cafes and restaurants, and super well connected to the rest of the city. Not to mention the bagels. We are rather busy most of the time, but when we can we love to cook and listen to music at home. We love meeting new people, and have travelled a fair share ourselves, so we look very much forward to meeting you. We're pretty confident you'll leave glad you stayed with us!
