About This Listing
Located on wide, leafy avenue Laval in the effervescent (!) exciting Plateau district of Montreal. Four bedrooms, of which two bedrooms have double beds, one has a king size bed and one room with a single bed. Two full washrooms with showers/baths.
Three-story, renovated 1850 'maison de ville', on the prettiest street in the neighbourhood (ok, we're biased!). The house has 12' ceilings and many original architectural features. The street has little traffic, wide sidewalks, classic ramshackle Montreal victorian architecture, ample free parking on street. We have a large backyard deck to allow outdoor eating, plus a jacuzzi spa which you may use.
Near Sherbrooke metro station (10 minutes), walking distance from Jazz festival venues, and 10 minutes walk from the delightful parc du Mont-Royal. Great shopping on Boulevard St-Laurent and St-Denis within 5 minutes walk.
The house is well suited for families, as we have lots of childrens' toys and safe areas to play. House is also perfect for groups of friends coming to enjoy Montreal's festival spendours.
N'hésitez vous pas à nous écrire en français y en espanol tambien. Gracias et merci.
Everything, and in summer a working and clean jacuzzi hot tub
Our street is quiet with little car traffic. It is heavily treed, an urban oasis. The side walks are extra large and neighbours and their kids friendly. If you are a family or not, you will feel quite at home.
The metro station is quite nearby (Sherbrooke) about 7 minutes away by foot.
No smoking inside
No pets unless negotiated (we have no pets)
Would highly recommend staying at Peter's characterful house in the happening Plateau area. Although we didn't actually meet him or his family as they were away on holiday, we felt completely at home in their place, which is ideal for families as there are lots of toys and books to keep small ones busy ... that is, when you're not out enjoying the cafes and parks all within walking distance. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend as a place to stay.
Peter's house in the Plateau worked out perfectly for our group of 6x. In particular, the outdoor patio was fantastic and we spent many hours out there in the evening after going out on the town. There were also plenty of places in the neighborhood which was quite charming and accessible. Further Peter was very accommodating, and easy to work with. I'd highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to visit Montreal and enjoy a more casual vibe.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans la maison de Peter.
Cette dernière est très bien positionnée, dans une rue calme mais très proche de grandes avenues commerçantes.
La réalité est conforme à la description.
Nous avons subi un souci avec les canalisations et l'hôte a été très réactif pour résoudre le problème.
La terrasse avec barbecue est très agréable ainsi que le jacuzzi.
Je vous recommande donc la maison et les hôtes.
Peter's house in the Plateau is great! We stayed there with our 2 y.o. son for a week, and had a great time. It is in a perfect location, accessible to anything. The outdoor patio is fantastic and we spent many hours out there. Peter was very accommodating, and easy to work with. We were there in the midst of summer, and the second floor did get very hot and sticky, so as there is no AC I'd recommend sleeping in the basement bedroom if it is hot out side. And the other thing I'd caution is that parking is really quite bad, particularly during the week with street cleaning, etc.,and at night. Though it is likely better at "off season" times (we were there in July). Make sure you have read and understood the signs! But unless you have a specific reason to have a car, don't bother - you certainly won't need one to explore the city from this location.
Otherwise, it was a great space, well kept, good communication, and a cat that is so friendly you would swear was actually a dog in disguise (this from someone who doesn't even like cats!). Highly recommend to anyone!
