This is a vegetarian friendly house and can easily accommodate food allergies. I usually cook and eat at home with healthy, fresh ingredients. I do not use harsh chemicals for cleaning or laundry and try not to use any products with paraben, aluminum or sulphide for cosmetics or for other household purposes. Although not yet completely scent-free, most of the cleaning and laundry stuff I use is odorless. Recycle, composting and avoiding disposable containers is a daily business.
Please do not hesitate to send me a message if you have any questions!

- Fully equipped kitchen
- Bixi key (when Bixi is up)
- Linens, towels, soap, shampoo etc.

I am a grad student and I am usually out working during the day and quietly continuing to work during the night. My days are pretty busy with writing but I love to share a chat over coffee/tea in the mornings. You can ask any questions you might have about the city and the neighbourhood and I'll be happy to share million reasons to love Montreal!

Helin is a gracious and welcoming host. Her apartment is very clean, well appointed, comfortable, and decorated in a great minimalist fashion.
My friend and I had to leave early due to bad weather in the US, but we would have gladly stayed another night at the apartment. While the weather was very cold, Helin provided us with plenty of blankets, as well as clean towels. She also provided maps of the area, guidebooks, and recommendations in the neighborhood. The room looks as pictured, and Helin was always very accessible through text message or email.
I highly recommend her apartment and would definitely stay with her again, if given the chance.
I had a wonderful stay in Helin's exceptional place. It was immaculate, with exceptional warmth at a very cold period of the year. The location is perfect, with a short few steps to the bus. The bus takes you to the Metro station for a subway ride to many different destinations.
I highly recommend Helin's place. I told Helin that I'm coming back on my next visit
Really nice place and Helin is a very friendly host.
You have large room in the hearth of the Plateau Mont-Royal. Only one block between the flat and the Mont-Royal Street! 5min between the building and the subway station (Mont-Royal).
If I had the chance to come back in Montreal, I will try to stay in this room...
My stay with Helin was wonderful !
The room is very large, big windows, very clean and organized and the bed is super comfy. The apartment is also super tidy and very well decorated. Globally the place is centrally located, min away to public transport, restaurants, bars and other conveniences.
Helin is a was a great host, extremely nice, very polite and helpful.
I highly recommended her place and would for sure go back again in my next stays in Montreal.
Helin was an amazing host. The apartment was large, clean, and in a great location. Helin was extremely helpful whenever my friend or I had a question about nearby restaurants or metro stations. We really enjoyed our stay there. Helin always made us feel welcome with her friendly demeanor. She also made sure my friend and I had plenty of space to store our belongings in the room, kitchen, and bathroom. Near the end of our stay, I had difficulty starting my car due to the extreme weather. Helin spent the next few hours calling garages and doing whatever she could to keep me calm and help me find a solution. I have absolutely zero complaints; I would definitely stay with Helin again!
The apt is gorgeous, clean, spacious, modern and well-decorated.
Helin was icing on the cake to our Montreal visit!
Even more helpful, Helin was extremely flexible and responsive in coordinating our stay without being invasive. Before we arrived, we had detailed parking information and were asked if we wanted a desk in the room as described in the pics.
Once we got there, there were guidebooks, spare keys, towels and everything else we needed just waiting for us in the room. My hubby was also sick, so Helin offered to make him some tea! She was so easy to talk to we felt comfortable right away.
If you are thinking about staying in her apt, do it! We would stay again without question.
Helin was an absolute pleasure! She was waiting as promised at the apartment and put together a little "welcome" kit full of maps and brochures of Montreal. She also provided very good information on area restaurants and links to their web pages. I would definitely recommend staying at Helin's apartment and would stay again myself.
Helin was a great host. The room is very large and quiet with a cute sitting area. The bed was very comfortable. Lots of storage space and great neighborhood. I could not have been more pleased. Great stay!
I stayed with Helin for 3 nights while in Montreal. She was so welcoming and helpful to a first-time visitor to her city. I would highly recommend choosing her place. It is super clean, and she is a consummate host. We had great conversations over dinner, and she is very flexible and very generous in sharing her space. Staying with Helin was the best part of my trip to Montreal!
What a lovely stay, it was exactly what i needed. Awesome neighbourhood, very accommodating host, great vibes! Perfect location in the heart of the plateau, everything accessible and walking distance. So happy i found this place :)
