About this listing
The apartment is located in Little Italy AKA Far Mile End. It is on the second floor of a duplex, very spacious and comfortable. The apartment has 3 rooms, which means that there are min 3 people living in the house. There is a big living-room, 2 balconies, bathroom and a big kitchen. There is lots of space for everybody! =)
The place is great for tourists because of its great position. It is only 5 min away from the most famous market "Jean-Talon" & one of largest parks - Jarry Park (which has a free outside pool). The neighborhood has lots of nice bars and restaurants, stores and grocery stores. There is a 24h gas station 3 min away walking distance.
There are 2 metro stations in less than 10 min walking distance and the buss going downtown and to the old city is right in font of the building (15 min away from downtown). There are 2 Bixi stations in less than 5 min walk from the house (if u like to bike).
The house is fully furnished, has all the appliances and there is high speed internet. You can cook, do laundry, enjoy some time in the balcony...
The available room is fully furnished with everything that you need to be comfortable (closet, comfy double bed, desk, chair). You only need to bing your traveling bag :)
I am working and studying. I enjoy meeting new people, sharing a glass of wine and stories. I have hosted many people from different countries and we have always had a great time. Make me a part of your trip, and I bet you won't regret it :)

Interaction with Guests
I usually interact a lot with the guests. I love to sometimes have a glass of wine and dinner or to go out discover the city with them. It all depends on my available time.
My neighborhood has everything you can wish for: a beautiful park, a farmer's market, lots of stores and restaurants. It is a safe and quiet place.
There is a bus stop right in front of the house (the 55 bus during the day and 363 during the night). This bus goes downtown and to the old city.
Metro station De Castelnau (on the blue line) is 5 min away walking from the house.
Metro Station Jean-Talon ( on the orange line) is 10 min away walking distance from the house.
There are a few bixi bikes stations in the neighborhood and a car rental company on the corner of the street.
Other Things to Note
Please read the house rules =)
There are no parties allowed. However the guests can invite friends for dinners and hangouts if they have previously informed the host.
The guests have to clean after themselves in their private room as well as in the public space. Cleaning after themselves involves things like: cleaning the bathtub after they shower, cleaning the kitchen after they have used it, washing their plates and stove after using it, etc. There is no cleaning fee so pls keep in mind that we all share the space.
I really prefer not walking with the outside shoes in the house.
Please try to keep the noise to a minimum in the morning.
There is no cleaning fee so pls keep in mind that we all share the space.
Thank you for your cooperation =)
My boyfriend and I came to Montreal for Osheaga and to do some sight seeing. This apartment is in a great location... Easy access to the metro, Jean Talon Market and some great restaurants/bars! We loved Brasserie Harricana! The bartenders were great to talk to.
We didn't get the chance to meet Lulia, but she responded quickly to any questions I had. She was very flexible regarding check in and check out time which was very helpful to us because we were traveling from Upstate NY. We would definitely stay there again.
Iulia is a very sweet girl, and I'm sure she would have been a marvellous roommate had she not been traveling around so much during the month I was staying at her apartment. The location in Little Italy is great although as a young person I missed some of the more typically-nightlife-ish distractions available in downtown Montreal. Close to the metro though, so that was never a huge problem. The apartment got very hot on some days, but Iulia kindly brought a fan on one of her trips back into town. All around, I had a great experience and I would have no qualms living at her place again.
J'ai vraiment passé 3 mois extraordinaire dans cet appartement spacieux et très très bien placé à côté du métro et à 2 pas du bus menant directement au centre ville 24h/24. J'ai passé des moments très agréable d'échange avec Iulia, génial! L'appartement est comme indiqué dans la présentation, aucunes fausses notes. Je reviendrai assurément ici si j'ai le plaisir de revenir dans cette magnifique ville.
I stayed a little bit more than two months at Iulias place (February-April 2015) for my studies at the UdM and it was perfectly located for that. In fact for everything because you have also buses and nightbuses ;-) at st.laurent. The apartment is well equipped and offer everything to prepare your meals. Although the both of us were pretty occupied with work, Iulias and I spend some nice evenings and a funny winter day in Quebec City, thanks a lot.
I spent 4 months in Iulia's apartment. The flat was spacious, clean and contained everything I needed. The location was wonderful: the metro station is really close and this is great during the winter. The room was nice and cozy. Iulia is a nice, frindly and sweet person! I felt at home from the very beginning of my stay!
The flat is spacious and wonderfully situated in the heart of Little Italy which makes morning walks to the market as well as really good coffee a quick stroll away. The best part of staying here is Lulia who is very lovely, the kind of person you're lucky to meet in any new city.
I loved being Iulia's roommate. Because of her warm and welcoming attitude she helped me to feel at home from the very beginning of my stay.
The neighborhood is great, lots of cafés, restaurants, a market, a park, bus and subway nearby, just everything you need to fall in love with Montreal.
My room was clean and contained everything I needed, no luxury but cosy.
If you like cats you will also like Yogi, he is a crazy but lovely cat who likes to cuddle.
All in all I did never regret my decision to live in a shared flat during my two-months-stay, especially because of Iulia's company and the company of the other roommates I had throughout my stay there.
Thank you Iulia, I will miss you and my time in Montreal!
