About this listing
First time on the market In the heart of the Plateau.
This is it !
First time on the market In the heart of the Plateau on a quiet street, only meters from Park Lafontaine, Montreal’s Central Park – ok, it’s not as big, but we’re a smaller city. Although you don’t have a view of the Park, the advantage is that you are on a quiet street; technically it’s a street but functions more like an alley. (The Streetview version is inserted by Airbnb and not the host - the shot you see is actually nearby and not a view from the apt.)
The apartment is a first floor 500 square foot loft style open space apartment, ideal for two. It was completely renovated in 2007 and upgraded in nov 2013. I have lived in the neighbourhood for over 25 years and have seen its evolution over the years, I actually live next door. The floors are hardwood and marble – new furnishings and fully stocked kitchen. (New added feature: expresso/cappuccino machine, and I don't mean the capsule type).
You are 4 minutes away from the trendy restaurants and boutiques on Mount-Royal Avenue and a 12 minute walk to iconic St Denis Street – outdoor cafés and boutiques.
There is a Bixi communal bike service (april - nov) 2 minute walk –the bike lane is on Rachel, the neighbouring Street. Velo Québec is 2 blocks away – for bike enthusiasts.
The Metro (subway) is short distance (10 min) on Mount-Royal or if you prefer a longer route, you can walk through the park and catch the Sherbrooke St Station (15 min).
Although Montreal hosts a series of outdoor festivals in the summer, Jazz, Just for Laughs, Francopholies in the downtown area ( 50 minute walk) - all the amenities you need are available on Mount Royal Avenue – restos , bars, liquor store, boutiques - the beer store, what we call Le Dépanneur is a minute away…
Reserved Private Parking, in front of the studio, is included in the rental
Free reserved parking
If your driving or coming by cab remember that Bureau is just behind (north of) Rachel - approx 50 ft - since Bureau St is not a major street, it is common for taxi drivers not knowing it - important focal point would be Rachel and Garnier or Rachel and Fabre, in front of Park Lafontaine.
The apartment was more than we hoped! Our host was incredibly thoughtful and welcoming. We will stay here every time we come back to Montreal, nothing can compare!
Joseph is a great host. He prepared the appartment with usefull information to have an easy Start in Montreal. The appartment was very clean and well equiped. I really recommend this appartment.
It was a record hot day in Montreal. The heat was getting to the cabbies at the bus station. They all wanted the day to be over and they were anxious for their next fare. Ours knew all the construction sites and detours and made it to Joseph's flat in minutes. When we arrived we were pleased to find that Joseph had turned the air conditioning to a welcoming 22 degrees. We also found fruit and a couple of beers. Perfect! The flat was very well equipped and even had an espresso machine. With all the conveniences and comforts of home we were ready to explore Montreal from our new home base. Joseph is the most gracious host we have encountered on our airbnb stays. He even arranged for a cab when it came time for us to leave beautiful Montreal and Joseph's wonderful neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed staying across from La Fontaine Park and all the walkable restaurants and shops. We will definitely be back soon. Thanks, Joseph. You were great. Tim and Linda
The apartment was amazing. Very clean and tidy. I have no complaints or regrets about choosing this apartment. Joseph was super helpful and informative throughout our stay. The complementary beers were a welcome site after a long day of travel as well! Great place!!
The studio was excellent- as pictured, very comfortable for two guests. The patio space was absolutely lovely, and Joseph provided plenty of information and recommendations about the surrounding area. Communication beforehand and entry into apartment were very smooth. I would not hesitate to stay here again!
Thank you Joseph for a wonderful stay! This was my first Airbnb experience and it exceeded my expectations! The apartment was beautiful, clean and perfectly located. I walked everywhere covering all the main sights on foot. Joseph was very efficient in his correspondence and it was his extra little touches that made it so lovely! He even let me leave my luggage at his place next door when I arrived in the morning before check in time. I cannot recommend Joseph's place highly enough!
L'appartement est moderne, propre, confortable, spacieux et bien situé. Joseph a été un hôte accueillant et discret. Il nous a fourni de précieux renseignements sur Montréal et nous a laissé plusieurs petites attentions dans le frigo et sur la table. Nous n'avons vraiment manqué de rien durant notre séjour et recommandons vivement cette adresse!
