The Verdun's neighbourhood is perfect, really close to downtown but quiet and calm at the same time. You'll be in the center in less than 10 minutes by subway (same lign), and the subway is at minute from the condo. The river is 5 minutes walking, where you'll be able to enjoy the nature. The bicycle path is incredible and leads to directly to old Montreal in 20 minutes. You can rent kayak or take a swim (it is allowed) . There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby, cafes, grocery stores, pharmacy and boutiques.
It is around 20 minutes by car from the airport (without traffic of course). It is around 35 $ in taxi, or 7 $ by bus (747) to the subway Lionel-Groulx. There is free parking in the street.
Other Things to Note
We can accept a couple with one baby without any problem as we have a little bed for babies (park).
It is strictly forbidden to smoke inside the apartment. We ask guest to not use their shoes inside to protect the floor. Our plant needs to be watered once a week. The building is calm, so we do not accept loud partys. Thanks!
Arrival was very easy. I took a taxi from the airport for the $40 flat rate, however took the Metro and 747 bus upon return to the airport which was quite easy as well. Of note, the Metro/747 option is included for free if you have the weekly Metro pass. The listing was quite accurate. It was clean and well supplied. The condo had many windows allowing for lots of natural light to enter.
I enjoyed the neighborhood. It was a one short block walk to the metro and you could be in downtown in about 15-20 minutes. There are many restaurants within walking distance and lots of families and kids walking around the neighborhood it feels very safe to walk around, though I think most of Montreal is like that. Overall, great experience, I would definitely stay there again.
We had a great visit with our family during the month of April. The apartment is clean and well equipped. The building is very quiet and we enjoyed staying at Erik and Laurence’s place. Check in is no problem as the host left us with door codes for access to the building and apartment doors. The host also left us with food for the first breakfast. It is much appreciated.
The location is also very close to shops, restaurants and metro station. Unfortunately, we did not meet Erik and Laurence as they were away on vacation. They left us a local contact person’s info just in case of any issues during our stay. Car parking in the street was generally not a problem but you must be aware of some of the parking restrictions. Thank you Erik and Laurence for having us in your place, we certainly will consider staying again at your place whenever we come to Montreal.
Malheureusement, je n'ai pas pu rencontre Erik et Laurence mais à travers nos conversations, j'ai eu le sentiment d'avoir affaire à des hôtes très accueillants et "réglots".
L'appartement est niquel : il est propre, neuf, très bien équipé et sécurisé.
Le quartier est un peu loin du centre de Montréal mais cela justifie le prix attractif de l'appartement. De plus, il y a une station de métro à 1min à pied de l'appartement, ce qui est plutôt pratique.
Fantastique appartement, lumineux, fonctionnel, à 30 secondes du métro et de tous commerces. Parfait!
We had a great visit with our new grandson in Verdun, thanks in part to the comfortable accommodations at Erik and Laurence's apartment. The condo was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Our hosts very kindly left breakfast food for our first morning, and the gift of some delicious ice wine tea. The location is excellent, just a few minutes from the Metro underground train system. It was easy to carry our luggage from the Central Train Station all the way to Gordon Street.
Our hosts provided us with codes for doors and checked to see that all was well. We hope to use this condo again, as we now have two adorable little boys to visit in Montreal!
I was very pleased with Erik and Laurence, they were welcoming and available for any questions I had. They welcomed me with a basket of fruit, tea and bread which was so kind! The apartment was accurate to the description, really a lovely place to stay in Montreal. Thank you!!
