***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 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.
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
- 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...
- 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
- 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 est une hôte en or! On se sent tout de suite à l'aise dans cet appartement chaleureux. Elle a toujours des suggestions de lieux intéressants à découvrir. L'appartement est extrêmement bien situé sur le Plateau. Oubliez la voiture, tout est à proximité à pied. Je suis plus que satisfaite de mon séjour et je compte bien y retourner!
Chambre parfaite, propre et agréable.
Marie m'a vraiment super bien accueilli. Je me suis senti de suite a l'aise. Encore merci pour ton accueil et ton hospitalité.
My stay at Marie's place was great: I am coming back for sure! The room and everything else was aligned with the description provided on airbnb. Marie did a great job to make sure that I was comfortable and helped me when I addressed her during my stay.
Marie's place is awesome, very clean and tidy and great location. She is very friendly and knows a lot about the area. Would highly recommend and definitely stay here again.
Marie was the perfect host for our short stay in Montreal. Marie is incredibly friendly, welcoming, interesting and helpful, providing us with everything one would need to experience Montreal like a local. She provided us with maps, and very many suggestions of things to do and see that weren't typically touristy. As we had a late night bus, she was also incredibly nice and flexible, allowing us to stay longer on our last day and definitely made us feel at home. Marie was wonderful to talk to, invited us to drinks with her friends (sadly we came back too late to join her) and made our visit to Montreal extra special. The location is great, close to all the major attractions and in a lovely neighbourhood. Her cat is a darling as well. Highly recommend to stay with Marie and we hope that we can visit again soon!
Marie was a fantastic host. She was always willing to recommend nearby restaurants and things to do, and her apartment was very clean. I spent some time with her working from home and also at a neighborhood coffee shop, and I found her extremely easy to get along with. I wouldn't hesitate to stay with her again. Thanks again for all your help!
I love staying at Marie's place, I wouldn't think of going anywhere else! The location is perfect with easy access to every part of the city. Marie is always available if I need some tips or info, and she seems to always know everything that is going on in the city! And when I'm sleeping or napping, I can't even tell that she's there. Plus, wifi, netflix, ps3 are available :-) Highly recommended!
I had a wonderful stay at Marie's apartment in Montreal. The location is perfect - you can walk anywhere - and the apartment is spotlessly clean, quiet and equipped with everything you might need. Marie is the perfect host - reliable, generous, full of great advice on Montreal and fantastic company. Highly recommended.
We stayed at Marie's for 18 days and had a great time. It is superbly located, being close to lots of restaurants, cafes, bars and music venues. It feels like a proper neighbourhood and a distinctive area rather than a touristy area.
The flat itself is very quiet, as it is located just far enough away from any noisier roads. It also has great bus & metro links. The flat is very comfortable to relax in. The main living/dining area is roomy, and the flat is very clean. The kitchen is well-equipped so we were able to save a lot of money by doing our own cooking. The room itself is also good - the bed is comfortable and it has enough storage and surface space.
We particularly recommend Marie as a great host. She was very welcoming, friendly and helpful (giving us lots of information on travel, restaurants and music), as well as being interesting conversation.
We would fully recommend this as a great place to stay.
Marie was a wonderful host.
Her apartment is in an ideal location, close to galleries, restaurants and shopping. She was very helpful with helping us find street parking and printed off maps for our easy reference.
An overall pleasant stay.
