About This Listing
*** I've moved. Check out my listing in Mile End! ***
Bright double room in a classic Montreal apartment.
The metro station is a minute away and the neighbourhood is full of independent cafés, local shops, yoga studios, the bustling Jean-Talon market, and restaurants of Little Italy and Mile End.
Jean Talon Metro station (blue and orange lines) is a minute away, and the famous food market is a few steps past the station.
The neighbourhood is foodie-friendly, full of independent cafés, local designer and craft shops, and yoga studios, the fresh produce and gourmandise of the Jean-Talon market, and the restaurants and supermarkets of Little Italy and Mile End.
Lots of Bixi (bicycle hire) stands nearby and bike paths galore. Parc Jarry with outdoor pool(!), pleasant paths for runs or walks, a pond, and plenty of good picnic spots is a 5-10 minute walk west.
Free parking is available on the street, often with a spot right outside the front door.
Your room is in a quiet spot overlooking the balcony at the back of the house. It has a double bed, cupboard and armoire. Shelves are stocked with fresh towels and linens, coffee and tea. Fais comme chez toi :)
Smoking's OK outside but not in.
If you'd like to invite other people round, please check with me first. I live here and it's important for me to know who will be sharing the space.
Other that, be comfortable and enjoy! If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know.
Maya est une hôte très aimable et la semaine a été très agréable dans son appartement tranquille et bien organisé .
Maya is a patient and wonderful host. I enjoyed staying at her place which was perfectly located (walking distance from Jean-Talon subway/market and other shops, easy access to Downtown Montreal, calm/in a residential area, etc). Her apartment is cozy and elegantly decorated. I'll come back for sure. Highly recommended place!
I had a great experience staying at Maya's apartment in Montreal. Her place is very clean and comfortable. It is located in a great part of the city with close proximity to Metro trains, buses, and the Jean Talon produce market where I shopped for fresh fruits every morning after jogging in the Park Jerry, that was just a few blocks away. The best part of my stay was Maya's personality. She is super friendly, genuinely helpful, very kind and soft-spoken. She was an awesome host who made me feel very much at home from the moment I showed up at her door step. When visiting Montreal in the future, I will definitely try to stay at Maya's apartment.
Maya was a great host and her apartment is adorable! She greeted us when we arrived at her apartment and recommended a great bar about a 20 minute walk away. The neighborhood is great as well. Right around the corner there is a great coffee shop, and about 10 minutes walk away is the beautiful Jean Talon Market. We loved Montreal and we would definitely stay with Maya if we ever return to Montreal!
Maya was a lovely host- her place is beautiful and she was warm and friendly throughout my stay. Definitely recommend!
Maya's room was the perfect place for my boyfriend and I to sleep while running around Montreal. It's located a block from the train and the train will take you anywhere and most everywhere. We also rented bikes and the neighborhood is full of diversity, good food(especially phó) and of course the beautiful Jean Talon market. Maya provides everything you could ask for and is very welcoming. None of us were really around much at the same time but if we were it was nice to chat. 100% recommend.
Maya was a wonderful host and communicator. She's such a sweet heart and will make you feel at home. She helped us to get around and what to see in the area. Her place was super cute, clean and tidy. The location was amazing - walking distance to the metro and local cafes and super markets. We will definitely come back again xoxo

About the Host, Maya
I live in between a few cities - Montreal, London, currently most often in Dusseldorf.
I'm curious, chatty but independent. I love to drone on and on about the cities I know. If you stay with me, and tell me a bit about your interests (music, activities, food, scenery) I'll try to create you a map of places and sights I suspect you might like.
