This spacious first floor loft in a former industrial space transformed into a residential building, sleeps 10 and is located in the chic Le Plateau-Mont-Royal neighborhood. Convenient to public transportation and within walking distance of many hip cafes, clubs, bars, restaurants, shops, and parks, the loft provides an ideal home base in the city for a larger family or two families vacationing together, as well as a business group or group of friends. Everyone loves the large entryway that opens to the fully-stocked kitchen with bar seating, the antique wooden industrial sliding doors, and the luxurious white claw-foot bathtub, as well as the water pressure.
It is hard to beat the location or size of this loft. Located just off of boulevard St. Laurent and Duluth, the loft is surrounded by nightlife, restaurants, shopping, spas, and lots of kid-friendly places, literally in every direction!
The loft has a total of three bedrooms, one of which can be divided into two to make four bedrooms. The loft has two private bedrooms, one with a double and the other with a queen. The bunk room can be divided with a curtain to make two rooms; it has a double bed and a double over double bunk bed, for a total of three double beds in one very big room.Each side of this room has it's own entrance through antique, industrial, rolling wood doors.
There are two couches in the living room. All beds are provided with quality, clean linens and plenty of pillows; all mattresses are less than a year old and everything is encased in protective guards. Half of the mattresses are memory foam and the other half are conventional spring mattresses, so every sleeper can find their comfort zone. It isn't a vacation without good sleep!
There are two bathrooms. One is a luxury bath with both a large shower and a claw foot tub; the other bathroom has a toilet, shower, small sink and new washer/dryer, making this location more comfortable for three or four mature students or a family for longer term rentals or a big group for shorter rentals. Many families have met up here, with two couples sleeping in the private rooms and all the kids in the bunk room.
Spacious, renovated, the loft is two blocks from boulevard St. Laurent and in between Rachel and Duluth (famous for bring your own wine restaurants). The loft also boasts a flats screen TV with Apple TV, Netflix, a DVD/BlueRay player (please bring your own). Formerly an industrial space in a residential building, the loft is located on the 1st floor (5 interior stairs up), with a large entry way opening into a kitchen stocked with all the necessary cooking gear. There are two tables that can be used to eat at or grab a bar stool. A welcoming space with everything you need to enjoy your time in Montreal, including wireless internet, washer, dryer, dishwasher, kitchen, towels, and an iron. Most importantly, this space has a great energy. Everyone notices it.
The location is ideal, at least from the perspective of this Montreal resident! The loft is located in the Plateau just off St-Laurent and Duluth, near downtown and McGill University, within blocks of Montreal's world-renowned festivals (Just for Laughs, International Jazz Festival, St. Laurent Street Fair, etc.) and surrounded by Montreal's best restaurants, shopping, cafes and nightlife. Within 10 minutes of two metros and minutes from many major bus routes, this loft is central but not in the tourist centre. A short walk to the famous Sunday Tam Tam, Schwartz’s famous smoked meat, Moishes steakhouse, Le Resevoir, and Romados chicken, and the neighborhood street festivals that happen all summer, the location is ideal for different adventures in Montreal on foot, by public transport, bixi bike (many stands nearby) or one of Montreal’s famous bike tours.
Along with the high-speed wireless and Netflix (you can sign on to your subscriptions through the Apple TV), there is a local telephone with free calling in Canada and the US (overseas and Mexico requires a calling card) and basic cable plus 15 channels (French and English).
I have lots of gear for the younger crowd, including a rocking bassinet (0-5 months), a pack n play, exersaucers (we call them command centres), high chairs, play pen, baby gate for the stairs, and many toys (including a play kitchen). These spaces have been designed with my children in mind, and I have plenty of kid gear to keep your little ones entertained while you make a martini.
I can also refer you to babysitters and am up-to-date on what is going on in Montreal for the younger crowd (along with the other crowds!) to give you a break or plan for some fun family activities.
Interaction with Guests
I always try to greet my guests and give them tips on getting around and things to do based on their needs and interest. If a problem should arise, I or the building manager can always be reached for help.
The metro is about a 12 minute walk. There are buses in each direction that can take you all over Montreal. There is a taxi stand on the corner.
Do not congregate on the sidewalk outside the rental smoking and drinking. This is against city bylaws. Please respect Montreal's 11pm noise restriction.
Please communicate your check-in and check out needs. I will try to accommodate, but generally check out is in the morning and check in is in the afternoon unless the place is empty.
The sliding doors are antiques and should not be played with or slammed repeatedly.
The house location is great. Marie is also very responsible. The house is very well equipped. Extremely clean! Overall the cleanest place I have stayed with airbnb. One of the rooms has a double bunk bed and double bed so make sure you are comfortable having more than 3 people in the room.
This was the perfect place (on the plateau) for our group of five to spend 5 days in Montreal! We were pleasantly surprised by all the really good variety of restaurants and stores on the main streets while the residential street that the apartment is on was very quiet. It is also very close to Mont Royal which is a perfect park for jogging and walking. Good access to markets, metro and bikes.
Marie helped us to find what we needed when we needed it. The apartment was spacious and well appointed. The sliding doors are a hold-over from when the building was an industrial activity, quaint but serviceable. It was very helpful to have the washer dryer after our trek by train across Canada! Two bathrooms, a rarity in this area. We highly recommend this AirBnB!
Apartment was spacious and comfortable - plenty of room for family of five to spread out. Loved the location. Marie was extremely helpful, providing us with spot on activity and restaurant suggestions.
Fantastic apartment, ideal for the needs of two families holidaying together with five young children between us!
The apartment has a great layout, is comfortable and well-equipped - definitely living up to the billing of "all you need in central Montreal".
Excellent location and Marie could not have been a friendlier and more helpful host, providing loads of suggestions for great places both for grown-ups and kids. We loved Montreal and could not have hoped for a better place to stay than Le Plateau, so convenient for parks, restaurants and interesting shops. I'd be delighted to stay there again.
Marie was awesome and always available for any questions we had. House was awesome and in a great location!
What an amazing host. Would def stay back here. Very helpful on where to go and where to park our car for all four days. House is amazing and had a great time. Def would stay here again.
Marie was very friend and helpful. She reserved a parking spot for us, and even looked for items left behind, which was greatly appreciated. The apartment was as advertised, and very clean.

About the Host, Marie
I moved to Montreal to study but fell in love with this city, and now I've settled down here. I teach and run my building, which I've recently renovated. I love this city and this neighborhood, and I'm excited to share it with others!
