The Space

***My apartment is located in the Plateau neighbourhood (not Mile end as automatically listed by AirBNB - I cannot change this). However, Mile end is only a 5-10 min walk away.

***UPDATE June 2013: New bed (mattress + boxspring)

**UPDATE November 2013: New 46" TV

Located just north from Downtown Montreal, Plateau Mont-Royal (email hidden)ly and artistic Montreal neighborhood full of great restaurants, shops, pubs, theaters, music venues, galleries, nightclubs, and much more. It also has many wide green spaces, especially Lafontaine, Laurier, Jeanne-Mance and the Mount Royal park.

I'm offering a cozy private bedroom (full bed) in my large Plateau apartment (approx. 1000 sq.ft. / 93 sq. meters) on a quiet residential street, just around the corner from all the action. You will find free and safe parking directly on my street.

By foot, you can discover:
- Bustling Mont-Royal Avenue, Saint-Denis Street and Saint-Laurent Boulevard (where all the attractions are!)
- The mountain (perfect for a nice walk, picnic, short hike, jogging...) and all other main Plateau parks
- The nearby Quartier Latin, Mile End and Outremont neighborhoods

Public transportation:
- 2 subway (metro) stations: Mont-Royal and Laurier
- Several direct bus lines (day/night) to downtown, Old Montreal and Old Port, the Olympic stadium, Little Italy...

My home:
- Typical Plateau-Mont-Royal "5 1/2" apt with 2 bedrooms (mine and yours!) - rooms are not too close to allow privacy
- large open space area (living room, dining room, full kitchen)
- bathroom with bath+shower
- washer
- wi-fi Internet, Netflix
- towels and sheets provided
- non-smoking environment (but you can smoke on the balcony)
- a 4-year-old tabby cat named Bruno

I'll happily provide more details upon request! (If you have questions about cultural activities, art and dining, I might especially be able to make good suggestions ;)

  • Marie was the perfect hostess, pleasant, helpful and caring. Her place was clean and comfortable and a perfect location for me. The neighborhood was nice and I was able to find satisfactory parking and easy access to the metro, the bus and plenty of great shops. I would definitely return if I ever need to go to the lovely city of Montreal.

  • I had a great week in the Montreal sunshine at Marie's house. Marie responds to enquiries about availability and questions in general with no delay!
    Whilst I was there, there was some sort of Street Festival taking place on Mont Royal Street, at the end of Marie's street, which could get pretty noisy in the evenings - so the answer is to go and join in!
    The room itself is pretty compact - ideal for the single traveller - even though there is a very comfortable double bed.
    My visit was for 6 nights whilst I was a volunteer track worker at the Grand Prix, so I didn't really get to see or speak with Marie that much. Nevertheless, I found her to be very friendly and helpful with a great knowledge of her home city.
    The house is on Rue Du Bullion, which is about a ten minute walk from the Metro Station and in turn very easy to get Downtown.

  • Nous avons passer trois nuits chez Marie où nous avons été très bien accueillies. L'appartement est nickel, et la chambre très calme.Grâce à une situation idéale dans Montréal, nous avons pu tout visiter à pied. Même si nous avons eu peu l'occasion de voir Marie elle nous a été de très bon conseille. C'est une Hôte charmante, je vous recommande fortement de venir y passer une nuit ou plus.

  • Staying at Marie's was a pleasure. The location is perfect, with just a few minutes walk to metro, it's easily accessible from everywhere. Mount Royal is just 10 minutes away and there are tons of cafes, bars, and restaurants in the neighborhood. The room and the bed are very comfortable, clean and cozy. Marie is very nice, and is always available to help and give insights into the city. And you'll love Bruno, her cat :-)

  • I had a great time in Marie's place - its big, spotlessly clean and in a great area of town, with lots of nice cafes and bars nearby. Marie was really helpful and friendly throughout my stay, and always had great suggestions on things to do and places to go. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

  • Marie is everything you need in host and even more. The room you are renting is clean and perfectly set up on time for you, her whole apartment is clean and kitchen available. Location is perfect - close to metro or walking distance from so many interesting areas.
    She is more than helpful with absolutely everything - if you need to find your way around the city or just useful suggestions for whatever you may need in the city. Our communication for the room reservation as well as everything else afterwards and while I was there- was clear and easy and straight forward.
    She is simply so nice and very smart, sharp and interesting lady. Highly recommended but hoping to keep some time spots for me too ! :)

  • Marie's place was perfect. Super tidy, comfortable, and located in a really cool part of town with tons of great restaurants and cafes, and artists boutiques.

    Marie was very friendly and generous - helping me with anything I needed during my stay. Highly recommended. I would stay here again without hesitation.

  • Marie is the most delightful of hosts; it was a real pleasure to meet and stay with her during our short visit to Montreal. She was generous both with her time and in giving us all the advice that we needed to make our visit profitable and enjoyable. Thank you, Marie, for everything.

    Recommended.

  • My first trip to Montreal and I feel very lucky to have tried Airbnb and stayed with Marie. Nice apartment in a perfect location. Great advice on places to go and things to see. I had a fantastic stay and would gladly stay with Marie on my future trips to Montreal. Cheers.

    March 2014
  • I found Marie to be very pleasant and very helpful, offering not only directions and subway information but suggestions about places to try out, things to see. We kept somewhat different hours, but that did not prove to be of any inconvenience. The place itself is situated very well, making several key streets easily accessible. I would recommend Marie, her place, and Bruno to anyone.
