About This Listing
Charming apartment at the confluence of the plateau, downtown and the Mile end in an stylish building. Quiet. Accessible. Clean. Artsy.
Enjoy the sun in the morning when you wake up on the balcony facing an Orthodox Greek Church and enjoy it again in the afternoon, overlooking a grass courtyard with a fountain. The apt itself has 2 bedrooms, each with double beds, 1 office with a computer and wifi, a large living room with 2 couches, flat screen TV equipped with AppleTV, a dining room with an old barnwood table and a kitchen with all the amenities. You can expect to feel the character and bohemian vibe of Montreal's Plateau neighbourhood in the appt and most certainly when step out. Within a 3 block radius there are cafes, terrases, bars and more. We are on the border of the Plateau and the mile end, so, when dining out, you can make it quick and cheap, or, for foodies that want to experience Montreal's culinary braun, walk one more block to St. Laurent Blvd. and experience restaurants rated as Montreal's best and one in particular that is rated as one of Canada's best. The bus on Parc St. runs frequently and takes you directly to metro station, Place des Arts on the green line, or you can walk about 12 mins to metro station Mont Royal on the orange line.

Here are suggestions of places to go in the neighbourhood. If you need recommendations for eating in other part of the city, it will be my pleasure to give you some names :
- Wine bar, good food and a lot of ambiance : Buvette chez simone
- Middle eastern : Kaza maza (best price/quality), Rumi (beautiful terrasse, amazing food), Barbounya (turkish, trendy).
- Fancy (more pricey): Le filet or Hotel Herman (trendy and creative)
- Brunch : Art Cafe, Lawrence, Sparrow
- Ice cream : Kem coba
- Bagel : Fairmount or St-Viateur bakery (both open 24/7)
- Coffee : Café la plume or Boris (russian donut is also their specialty).
- Bar : Big in Japan is a "hidden" bar (on St-Laurent corner of Rachel, next to Patati Patata restaurant, beautiful, soft music, amazing cocktails, nice Japanese whisky selection.
Parking : you can usually find a spot in the street but make sure it is not reserved for permit holders. If no place is available on Hutchison, look on Villeneuve. There is also a paying parking one block away from my place, at 400 Laurier West. It cost maximum 15$ per day.
Bus 80 is very convenient : it gets you downtown in less than 10 min and passes every 5-10 min. The stop is right on the corner. We are also walking distance of metro Mont-Royal. Hopefully, you like to use a bike : then you can rent a bixi and ride a full day for 7$!
Other Things to Note
My cat will stay at the apartment while you are there. She does not require any care beside giving her food once. If you are allergic, please let me know and we will see if we can organize something so she does not stay at the apartment while you are there.
The towels are in the shelves in the small bedroom behind the door.
The microwave may randomly starts to beep. We usually keep it unplugged for this reason.
We love our neighbours and we wish to keep a good relationship with them. Therefore, we would appreciate that there is no party in our apartment. We share a balcony with the neighbours so we ask our guest to be respectful with them if using the balcony.
Heating : feel free to adjust the temperature directly on the baseboard heater.
Garbage is under the sink and recycling is under the counter on the left of the oven, in a blue bag. You do not need to get the trash out, I will take care of it.
Smoking is not allowed in the apartment but you can smoke on the balconies.
Sophie was a wonderful host who responded quickly to any questions we had. The apartment was beautiful and we took full advantage of the sun and the view the balconies provided. An accurate description of the apartment was provided. The One Mile area is a great place to explore and one is just a hop skip and a jump from Mont Royal.
Nous n'avons pas rencontre Sophie, mais elle avait tout prepare parfaitement pour notre acces a l'appartement, tres spacieux et agreable, situe dans une belle maison tout pres du parc, ideal pour les amateurs de calme et de nature. La promenade jusqu'au metro est agreable, sauf par mauvais temps, ou on a envie de se refugier dans un musee par exemple.
Sophie's apartment is beautiful! Everything was smooth and exactly as described. The apartment gets lots of light and is very open. The location could not be better.
Moi et mes amies, avons été enchantées du logement de Sophie: bien situé, propre, avec beaucoup de cachet et un chat adorable. Les lits étaient vraiment confortable, les douillettes bien réconfortantes et chaudes pour l'hiver, c'était parfait pour nous. Sophie a toujours été prompte pour répondre à nos questions et a été vraiment sympathique (même si nous ne l'avons pas rencontrée).

About the Host, Sophie
Hey! I am Sophie. I love travelling, especially when I experience a culture shock. That being said, I have traveled mostly in Europe (I studied in Spain) and in North America. What I like about Airbnb is that it provides me an opportunity to meet people, which is something I don't get to do otherwise in my day to day life.
I love running, doing yoga, reading graphic novels and cooking vegan food.
