The Space

Stay in peace and comfort in this big, beautiful apartment! The place is really spacious -- it has a huge bedroom with a queen size bed, living room, eat-in kitchen, office and bathroom -- and has tons of great details, including hardwood floors and exposed brick walls. Wifi, cable television and in-suite laundry ensure a worry-free stay, and the patio with bbq and herb garden is a great place for a summer dinner.

The apartment is fully furnished, and the kitchen is fully equipped, including a food processor, blender, electric kettle and french press. The bed is truly one of the most comfortable beds ever! And I provide fresh towels and linens. I do have a full sized airbed which can be set up in the office to create a second sleeping area.

My apartment is located on a quiet, tree-lined street less than 100 yards from metro Lionel-Groulx (which is great because the two major subway lines meet here! You'll be downtown in ten minutes or in the plateau in 15). I live a five minute walk from the Atwater Market (a great, year-round farmer's market open 7 days a week), the Lachine Canal (good place for a run or a bike ride; the path winds all the way to the old port), and tons of restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. Street parking is fairy easy to find right on the block, and the 747 express bus to and from Trudeau airport stops right around the corner.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We can recommend this very cosy, clean and spacious apartment, we felt at home immediately. We enjoyed jogging and cycling (bike hire) at Lachine Canal and there are many restaurants and cafés next to Atwater Market. Express Bus to Airport and Metro within 3 minutes walking distance. Janelle is a reliable and straightforward host.

  • Janelle was very good at planning and coordinating our stay at her place. We stayed very comfortably and we had no problems. Everything was clean and cozy and it is located in a perfect location between the airport and downtown area, with easy access to the public transit system. We enjoyed our comfortable stay and would do it again and recommend it. Thanks Janelle!

  • This is a great location for exploring the Little Burgundy neighbourhood, Atwater market and Lachine Canal. The apartment is as described and Janelle was very easy to communicate with.

  • My husband and I spent seven days in Janelle's apartment. We had a wonderful time. The Metro, is only a few minutes from Janelle's front door. The amazing Atwater Market is just a few minutes further. Janelle was in Europe at the time and she arranged for her friend to be there to meet us. Everything was perfect including the lovely bottle of wine she put in the fridge.
    Our emails to Janelle were answered promptly. She is a very reliable host and we highly recommend Janelle's apartment.

  • The apartment was lovey: spacious rooms, good light, comfortable bed, full equipped kitchen and so convenient to the Metro! The street was quiet and we easily found parking, allowing us to ditch the car for the weekend and ride the Metro around town. We really enjoyed staying there and would return in a heartbeat. Our only issue was with the upstairs neighbors who have two loud dogs and a penchant for midnight vacuuming--clueless that they have people below them trying to sleep. Bring earplugs just in case.

  • If you're familiar with Montreal style living, you will love this apartment! It's in a very convenient spot, with lots of space and a homey feel. There is a shady back gallery perfect for sitting out and enjoying a cup of coffee while feeling part of the neighbourhood. Very close to a metro hub so easy to get around town.

    Janelle is a gracious host, welcoming and organized. Definitely recommended for the true Montreal experience.

  • My stay at Janelle's beautiful apartment was perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything better. The location was great, we found some great cafes nearby, and the Lionel Grioux metro is ideal since it's on both lines.
    The apartment is gorgeous - I think it's actually a lot bigger than the pictures make you think. Everything was cleaned up, the wifi and television both worked perfectly, which was great for those freezing cold Montreal days.
    Janelle was an amazing host, easy to contact before and during my trip. I'd definitely stay again!

Hi! I'm Janelle, and I'm a concert pianist. I've lived in some pretty amazing places -- Vancouver, New York and Paris -- and I travel a lot for work, but Montreal is home and I love it here. I'm constantly trying new restaurants and going to hear live music, so I have tons of recommendations to share! Je parle français aussi.
