This is a really great place! Erik and Laurence have a wonderful, cozy apartment that is clean and has all of the amenities they describe. The photos accurately showcase their space. When we arrived they had left some juice and milk in the fridge, there were three pages of restaurants/bars/shops recommendations that were easy to find on their map, along with a page of easy instructions for their apartment. Anytime we needed to connect with them they quickly responded.
The apartment is also close to the metro and bus line so it is very easy to get to downtown. I had a great stay and highly recommend their place when you visit Montreal.
Erik and Laurence were fantastic hosts. When we arrived there was a gift basket with some tea and a lovely note welcoming us. They included a map of the local area, as well as a list of things to do. The condo was clean and just as advertised. The location is close to the nearby SAQ for alcohol, as well as grocery stores and bars. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the Montreal area.
Super logement ! Très agréable, bien situé a deux pas du métro. Proche de toutes les commodités et de très bonnes adresses indiquées par Laurence et Erik ! Quatier très agréable et nous avons passé un très bon sejour !!
De verhuurder verwelkomde ons met een pakketje eetwaar om de eerste uren niet meteen buiten te hoeven. Tevens ook een pakket documentatie om Montreal te bezoeken. De omgeveing was rustig en geeft een veilig gevoel. Een grote supermarkt ligt om de hoek. Een metrostation idem.
We didn't meet Erik and Laurence during our stay, but when we arrived Laurence, by phone, gave us all the information we needed to get keys and let ourselves into the apartment. We were very impressed with the apartment, very clean and well-equipped, with lots of information about facilities in the area. And a nice present of chocolate!
The Metro station is very close to the apartment, and getting into the city was very easy. We enjoyed visiting Montreal, and loved the city. But we also enjoyed the area where the apartment is situated, the shops, bakeries and cafe/restaurants. All in all we had a very enjoyable stay. Merci, Laurence et Erik.
Erik and Laurence are great hosts! Their apartment is beautiful. It is very clean and modern. It is also very nicely decorated and very well organized. We were truly amazed and grateful for the great attention to detail of our hosts. We arrived to an apartment with fresh linens and towels. Our hosts even had the thoughtfulness to leave us milk, juice, fruits and bread for our first morning's breakfast. The kitchen is equipped with all the cookware and utensils that you would need to prepare your own meals. Our hosts also left us maps and guidebooks to helps us during our stay in Montreal. They also recommended some of their favorite places to eat. We tried a few of them and they were awesome. The balcony is very nice and there is also a great view from the rooftop terrace. Parking is very convenient, but you just have to make sure to pay attention to the parking restrictions.
The apartment is in a great location. The neighborhood is very quiet and we felt comfortable walking around the neighborhood. There are many great cafés and restaurants to enjoy. There is also a big food market nearby where you can buy groceries. The metro is less than a block away (less than 1 minute) from the apartment. And there are also many buses that run near by.
We loved staying at Erik and Laurence's place and we would definitely recommend other people to stay in this apartment.

The hosts weren't able to meet us upon arrival, but gave very clear instructions on how to get in to the building and the room. The condo itself was fantastic, we loved staying there! They left us fresh bread on the counter, stocked the fridge with essentials, and even gave us maple tea! It was extremely easy to walk to the nearest metro stop which was highly convenient. They also left us a very detailed list of restaurant, bakery, shops, etc. in the neighborhood. If we come back to Montreal we would definitely stay here again!
