For 4 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.
- Typical Plateau-Mont-Royal "5 1/2" apt with 2 bedrooms (mine and yours!) - rooms are not too close to allow privacy

- towels and sheets provided (soap & shampoo upon request)
- non-smoking environment (but you can smoke on the balcony)

You have access to all of the apartment (except for my bedroom!).
Big plus during the summer: the backyard balcony.
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.
***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, Bières & compagnie, Sparrow, Monsieur B, L'Entrepont, Café Névé, Le Réservoir, Laïka...
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
- 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...

There is no specific curfew, and you can go out or come in anytime you please. However, I just ask you to keep the apartment quiet when you live on "odd hours".
I recently stayed for nine days at Marie's apartment. The location and the apartment itself could not have been better. It is very close to the Metro and also to good shopping streets. I particularly enjoyed the Lebanese Deli, Trip de Bouffe, and Harbin, a new Chinese dumpling restaurant on St. Laurent. Marie was very friendly and at the same time not intrusive. Communication was good. I would definitely stay here again.
It was a very pleasant and comfortable stay at Marie's apartment.
J'ai passé un super séjour chez Marie. Elle est très accueillante et vous fait sentir tout de suite à l'aise. Elle connaît bien Montréal et m'a donné plein de conseils pour visiter la ville. Son appartement est idéalement situé sur le plateau, un quartier vraiment très sympa. La cuisine est bien équipée, la chambre est confortable et calme.
Bruno est un chat timide mais très attachant.
Je recommande cette adresse sans problème ;)
Marie is a welcoming and attentively friendly host who knows a lot of music spaces and food places in her local neighborhood. She was responsive when I sadly got myself locked out of the apartment one night and helped me resolve the problem quickly. She helped me find a grocery store and a convenience store nearby. Her space is clean and spacious; the kitchen is well equipped with a fridge (including space for guests' groceries), stove, and an oven. Even though the chair and hone desk in the bedroom is very small, I was able to use my laptop at the large dining room table. Note that the bathroom has no plugin outlet for a hair dryer, unfortunately. Overall, Marie is a responsive and attentive host. I'm glad I got to stay at her place and her cat Bruno.
Marie is a lovely host. She has a great wealth of local knowledge and is always willing to help you out or give you advice.
Thanks again :)
Had a wonderful stay! Marie's place was a beautiful, warm, clean, and comfortable shelter from freezing temperatures we weren't used to outside. She was extremely helpful and flexible with our needs, and she really went out of her way to make us feel welcome in a new place. She's easygoing, knowledgeable, and a professional at hosting, and the location couldn't get more convenient. I would 100% recommend for friends to stay here when they visit Montreal.

Nice to meet you!
