Interaction with Guests
Depending on your arrival and departure times, I try and make an effort to meet and chat with all my guests.
Much like SoHo in New York and Le Marais in Paris, the Plateau has international renown as the neighbourhood with the most caché. Furthermore located in the southern end of the neighbourhood, you can easily get to Old Montreal, Downtown and the Mile End, three of the most interesting parts of the city to explore. Close to the action, all the while being in a quiet residential area. Truly the best of both worlds.
Getting around from my flat is incredibly easy. There are two metro stations located within a 5 minute walk, both of which are on two of the major lines. There are also two major bus axis within a two minute walk from the apartment. And lastly you have easy access to Montreal's communal bike service, Bixi, which allows you to borrow and return bikes all over the city.
If you are arriving with a car there is free street parking on the street in front of the apartment. Most guests who arrive by car park it upon their arrival and do not move it again until it is time to leave. This truly is a great location to explore the city.
Lastly, arriving from the airport is a breeze. You can use the '747' bus which brings you to the central bus station, a ten minute walk away. Or you can catch a cab with fixed downtown rates of $40 CDN.
Other Things to Note
A lot of love and energy went into creating this space. I had my future guests in mind when designing everything and hope that they appreciate the work that has gone in. The goal has been for people to come from all over the world and feel at home (and maybe even return).
Kindly remove your shoes, those floors are over a 120 years old.
Respect thy neighbour.
Don't do anything you wouldn't do in your place.
We found the place to be as described - spacious, elegant, and well appointed. We met and chatted with Chris. A great visit to Montreal.
We spent an amazing week in Montreal, and Chris' beautifully appointed apartment was the perfect base. Convenient for walking to many of the city's popular neighborhoods, with all of the necessary amenities, shops, restaurants, and metro within 10 minutes walk.
The apartment itself is outstanding. Full of character, yet equipped with modern appliances, a luxurious bathroom, and air-conditioning (it was July, after all!).
Chris was responsive throughout, gave us helpful information and tips, and made the whole process straightforward.
Definitely hope to stay here again next time we're in town!
A great apartment, just a couple of blocks from a lot of things going on in downtown Montreal. Chris was a great host, even though we never met everything was as described. Great AC in the apartment, fast WiFi. Very clean. Biggest thing I would tell Americans that do not speak French, just look closely at the street signs on where to park. There a lot of spots on the street that are just for residents. If you can snag a spot right in front of the apartment on the right hand side you should be good. Would stay there again!
The apartment was truly lovely! It felt like we were staying in a place worthy of a magazine spread. Christopher was wonderful to work with and made some great recommendations to us regarding places to eat/see. My family and I highly recommend his apartment!
3 friends and I stayed at this beautifully decorated apartment in June 2015. The apartment was immaculate and Chris was very easy to communicate with and even allowed us a late check-out. The apartment is in a great location especially if you enjoy exploring a city by foot, smack dab between St. Laurent and St. Denis. I would definitely recommend it to others.
My wife and I had a perfect stay here. Chris was incredible communicative and available to answer any questions we had. His loft is breathtaking, clean as a whistle, and in the most absolute perfect location. The beds were cost, sheets perfectly pressed, and wash towels as fresh as new. We cannot recommend more highly this air b and b location. It's our intention to visit again this fall. We fell in love with Montreal thanks to this Air B n B experience.
We had a wonderful experience at Chris's place. The neighborhood was perfect for us. We walked almost everywhere we went and found a bike rental place less than a block a way. The street is charming and the apartment is beautiful with comfy beds, a beautiful dinning area and a well stocked kitchen. We will definitely stay again.
