- large front garden
- beautiful apartment, incredible location - best neighbourhood, and super central too, just down the street from St Viateur cafes and bagels, The PA Supermarket is around the corner, the 80 and 55 buses pass right nearby, the mountain is five minutes away. Downtown is 10-15 minutes away.
We are two mature, respectful, and quiet roommates (female, 27 from France, male anglo Canadian, 31). We speak English and French. Noelie teaches English and James is a musician and writer. We'll totally help you find what's happening in Montreal, show you around, whatever you need.
We are very chill and welcoming to different types of people. The house is generally quiet after 11pm, with some exceptions on the weekend. We're not anal about it. James works from home during many days so basic quiet is encouraged during the day, but again we're relaxed about this stuff.
James's place is in a great location - in one of the (in my opinion) nicest and coolest neighbourhoods in town, but still in a quiet street. Plus it's close to several bus stops. The room is small, but big enough to put your suitcase, plus there's a desk and a drawer for your things. The kitchen is big and well equipped. James was a good host who was very fast in replying. I would definitely recommend this place if you want to explore the Mile End and Plateau neighbourhoods.
I knew the neighbourhood well and wanted a place that had the Mile End feel. This place was ideal. Perfect location, in the action but on a quiet side street. The room was very simple but clean, and I didnt notice any loud noises or loud tenants. I would recomend this spot to anyone wanting a convenient, clean and affordable place to stay :) I never got to meet James in person, but through correspondence he was very attentive and helpful.
James was a great host, cozy place, everything we needed and more was there for us. Thanks!
James ist super nett!! Das Haus liegt in einem schönen ruhigen Viertel, City ist mit'm Bus in 15 Minuten gut erreichbar. Zimmer ist nicht groß, aber schön. Ich würde hier wieder übernachten!
Our host, James, was very welcoming and provided us with all necessary information to get there and feel comfortable. He recommended some good places to eat as well. The room was clean and private.
This is a great cozy and comfortable room right in the heart of Mile-End. James is an affable and courteous host and I enjoyed talking music and the Montreal scene with him. Recommended.

About the Host, James
I have lived in Montreal for ten years. I'm a musician and writer, working daily on writing songs and also on editing a book of poems and one of stories. I work part time via internet and do a lot of writing at a few nearby coffee shops each day.
Besides that I have beers on stoops and patios with close friends, see a lot of music and read a fair bit. I've traveled to Asia, Europe, Israel and around North America and these days if I'm traveling I prefer to stay in one place and get into a routine than boot around looking at stuff.
I love coffee, beer, wine, fish, steak, chicken, cheese, spinach...lots of foods. I'm a quiet, amenable kind of host...like I know Montreal well and can direct guests to tourist events, sights but can better direct folks to great areas to soak in surroundings, have coffee, watch people, as that's what I like to do.
