The Space

If you are looking for a large place to host a group, for a family gathering or other, this is the perfect place for you!

The place has 6 rooms and can sleep up to 14 people. There is a fully-equiped kitchen, a comfy living area and a large terrace. There are two full bathrooms (shower/bath/toilet).

In the summer, we run the place as a B & B so to reserve better plan ahead. Note that (after some of the guest's comments) that if you rent the whole place you will be all by yourselves, no other people staying there.

The place is really funky. Crazy decorations, Pollock inspired walls, books everywhere, cool furniture...And the location? We are ON the boulevard, the Main as we call it, home to Leonard Cohen and Mordecai Richler, the hip Plateau neighborhood, and walking distance to the new hipsterhood, the Mile End. Everything is walking distance...The Mountain as we call it is just a couple of minutes away.The closest subway station is 10 minutes walking but there is bus 55 that does all of the St Laurent boulevard from the Old Montreal to Italian quarters. And if you are like me, you'll walk everywhere...Can't be better located....

You'll definitely enjoy the place!

The french Lonely planet (Le Guide du Routard) says: "the gem we dream of finding in a city...." You won't be disappointed!!!

You can rent the whole place or simply one room, in that case, go to MY OTHER LISTINGS on the right-hand side to see different prices, choose your room and make a reservation.

  • Can't say mutch about Jean as we haven't met :) But everything went smooth. He left the key for us at a nearby coffe place and we left it in the living room when we left. The house is comfy and offers great gathering place with the living room and the patio. Our group of 8 had a great time as we all had a small space of our own but also a place to gather before heading out.
    The street is quite vibrant, has lots of bars and shops in the vicinity but is a bit further from downtown or old port.
    All in all we had a great time in Montreal and having our own house had a lot to do with this. Thanks Jean!

  • Jean was great! The apartment was clean and ready for us earlier than promised. 11 of us stayed comfortably, and really enjoyed place. Also, the location is perfect; right in the center of everything. Would definitely recommend!

  • Jean was a great host! He was there when we arrived late in the afternoon and gave us a walk through of his large apartment and the layout of the neighborhood. In addition to the seven separate bedrooms and two bathrooms the place has one large outside patio on the first floor and one balcony on the second floor. The large kitchen with an adjacent small living room that had two guitars and a small bongo drum provided us with some nice down-time music. As a larger group of seven people it was also convenient that all of us had our own keys.

    As the description said, this place is centrally located on Boulevard Saint-Laurent where we were able to walk to Parc du-Mont Royal, various restaurants, small groceries, bars and other nightlife all within 15-20 minutes. It is also very convenient to hail a cab to get to other areas of the city. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Although I was unable to attend this trip my girlfriends produced amazing feedback. I started to receive rave reviews as soon as they arrived at Jean's home.

    Prior to our trip Jean was extremely helpful in telling us the easiest and cheapest way to get to his place via the airport . He recommended local sites and attractions . Quite simply - Jean was the best .

    My girlfriends highly recommend his spot and I certainly recommend him as a host. Thank you Jean !

  • This is a fun place in a great location. The flat was very clean, comfortable and perfect for our group of 9. We loved eating in the 'bistro' and the living area is right off the kitchen and very cozy. All the bedrooms were great - none of our kids fought about which one would be better! The bedroom with the bunks was perfect for my husband and me and our 10 year-old - we all had enough room. We love to walk, and the flat location is easy walking distance from lots of wonderful areas in Montreal. The bus up and down Boulevard St-Laurent is very convenient. We will look to staying here again next time we are in Montreal.

  • We had a wonderful, comfortable stay in this large, cheerful and clean apartment. Jean was very prompt and accommodating in responding to our needs, and we had everything we needed. The location was brilliant and the price was more than reasonable. I would consider coming back every year.

  • Jean's place was great for a large group. It was centrally located in the best possible area you could stay in Montreal. Walking distance to cafes and just about everything. Jean was very accommodating and communicated well throughout my whole stay. If you are travelling with a large group in Montreal, I definitely recommend staying there.

  • We came to Montreal for a 30th Birthday celebration and had a wonderful time. The house was perfect and we had plenty of room for our group of 10. Jean was very helpful and gave us great advice about the area and was very easy to contact while booking. House was situated in the perfect location to explore Montreal on foot, close to everything.

    Thanks Jean, we had an amazing time.

  • We are a group of 11 students from University of Washington who were attending a national conference in Montreal. We stayed in Jean's place for 5 days and it was GREAT! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the apartment is large enough that there are plenty of places to hang out.

    Jean left a wonderful recommendation list and we referred to it often. The neighborhood was extremely easy to navigate and just a short bus ride/walk/or metro to the Palais de Congres.

    I highly recommend this apartment for large groups traveling together.

    Thanks Jean!!!!

  • A group of college friends gathered from all over the US for a long weekend to catch up and reminisce after not seeing each other for more than 40 years. This property was perfect for us. The description of this property is spot on. The location is perfect. There are numerous excellent restaurants, bakeries and interesting shops within easy walking distance. Access to public transportation is convenient. As advertised, the decor is funky. The property is very clean. The terraces are comfortable. Jean is a great host- friendly, easy to contact, accommodating, and full of information about the Plateau and all of Montreal. He also has a good stock of tourist information on hand. A great experience all around,
