The space

For 6 years, I've been 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.
You'll also have a chance to meet David Bowie, my 4-yr-old tabby cat ;)

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+dryer
- wi-fi Internet
- towels and sheets provided (soap & shampoo upon request)
- no smoking inside, but there is room to smoke on the balcony (chairs & ashtray)

Guest access

You have access to all of the apartment (except my bedroom!).

Interaction with guests

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 ;)

I'm usually around to help you out on the spot. When I'm not, you can reach me quickly anytime by email or text message.

The neighborhood

***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.

Located just north from Downtown Montreal, Plateau Mont-Royal is a lively 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.

Here are a few great places nearby:

Schwartz, Le Comptoir, La Banquise, Aux Vivres, Le Quartier général, L'Express, Chez Doval, Brasserie Dieu du ciel, Bily Kun, Plan B, Casa del popolo, Sala Rossa, Divan orange, Salon Daomé, Belmont, Sparrow, Monsieur B, L'Entrepont, Café Névé, Le Réservoir, Laïka...

Getting around

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...

Other things to note

New bed (mattress + boxspring)
New 46" TV in the living room

Marie's apartment is a great Montreal experience -- a long flat with the classic Montreal balconies in the back with diagonal windows! You'll feel like a local here, and right off the main streets (Mont Royal, St Laurent) so close to everything you need. Bedroom is spaced away from the Host's, giving you privacy. A silent sleep on a comfortable bed with little touches like night lamp, corner shelf, desk and full-length mirror. Spacious home, it gets a bit chilly on very cold days - bring a sweater and thick socks (this is Quebec after all!), and Marie offers extra blankets. I'm sure in the hot summers, this is an ideal comfortable spot! The cat is also so good with strangers! Thanks for a great stay :)

We had a comfortable stay in this well-equipped and well-situated apartment. Our host was both friendly and informative. And there is a cat which enjoyed our company.

Thanks for a great stay! Marie's place is close to major transportation hubs, great restaurants, and shops. Marie was a fantastic host, very knowledgeable and helpful. I also went during the cold winter and she went out out of her way to help me get accustomed to it (I'm from LA) :)! I would recommend staying here.
