About This Listing
Private room in a big appartment close to the Fabre subway station.
Big open kitchen/living room, very sunny. Balcony with barbecue ! Close to Beaubien street, Jean-Talon market, and a few subway/bus stops to centertown !
It's a huge 6-rooms appartment, very welcoming with a lot of cachet (hard wood floors, lots of light...). We have a beautiful open kitchen and living space (lots of plants ! :-)). The patio door opens on the balcony and lets the sun come in all day long.
The room can host 2 people in a double bed. There is a wardrobe for your clothes. You're welcome to use the kitchen and living room, and the balcony with its barbecue !
Interaction with Guests
We are a couple in our early thirties (Alessandro is informatician and I'm musician and sound engineer). We've lived in Montreal for several years.
We usually work or study during the day, but we're often at home in the evenings. We will be pleased to share with you about our favorites places to visit / restaurants / places to go out etc... !
It's a lovely and peaceful neighbourhood with a lot of nice things to see and do : Jean-Talon market, Little Italy, Beaubien street (small shops and restaurants, nice vibe), a small cinema, beautiful parcs, good breakfast restaurant, an amazing italian glacier at the corner of the street... :-)
The indian neighbourhood is close, with a lot of cheap and great restaurants !
The center of the town is only a few bus/subway stops away.
The Fabre subway station is a 8 minutes walk, Jean-Talon and Beaubien stations at 20 minutes.
A lot of bus lines stop next to the house (including night bus).
If you have a car, you can park easily in the street.
Other Things to Note
If you have any questions or special requests, feel free to write to us ! We will be pleased to get back to you soon and will do our best to accomodate you !
We are non-smokers, but you can smoke on the balcony.
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in the flat.
The home is very comfortable and the couple is very generous. Allesandro was very welcoming, inviting us to share meals, and even gave us some traditional Quebec cake his friend made! There is lots of room in the kitchen and living room to make yourself at home, and the bedroom is comfortable with plenty of room for hanging things and putting bags and boots.
The nearest subway is about 15 minutes walk, and from there, it can take a while to get downtown because it requires transferring at least once. You can walk to the Jean Talon market in 20 minutes, and Little Italy in 25 minutes. These felt like a long way because we visited when it was wintery, but in the summer, this walk would be lovely. Good coffee, good music, good conversation!
Our stay at Alessandro and Sylvaine's was absolutely wonderful! The only disappointment was not being able to meet Sylvaine, as she was out of town when we visited. Alessandro was incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home. He was gracious enough to print out a map and highlight some good places to go, assign an empty shelf in the bathroom to us, share music recommendations, and generally make us feel like we were staying with a friend. The house was as described, with a comfy bed and a sunny kitchen, perfect for enjoying a mug of coffee and a croissant in the morning. This was our first Airbnb experience and we can't say enough good things about it! Grazie and merci, Alessandro and Sylvaine!
Although we did not get to meet Sylvaine, we stayed with her partner Alessandro who was a fantastic host (we even shared a meal and some wines). A great, clean and bright apartment with good kitchen and laundry facilities. Within walking distance to the metro and lots of restaurants and shops nearby. All in all a great stay and we will be back! Thank you Alessandro for a fantastic air bnb experience!
Un énorme Merci à Sylvaine et Alé de nous avoir accueillit chez eux et d'avoir été toujours disponible pour nous aider!! Nous nous sommes sentis vraiment comme à la maison et c'était vraiment agréable de discuter avec vous!!
Vous avez été d'une aide précieuse à notre arrivé et aussi de bons conseils!!
On se revoit chez nous cette fois pour une autre excellente soirée créole!! ;-)
Sylvaine made me feel very welcome and was very communicative before my arrival, so I was confident the stay would go well, which it did. She and Alessandro were very respectful, fun, helpful, and we even ate dinner together the last night because we all happened to be home at that time. It was great to share a meal one night and share their space for a while.
Très bon séjour chez Sylvaine ! Un très joli appartement dans lequel on se sent vraiment bien. Le lit est confortable !
Quartier calme. Commerce à proximité et petit resto sympathique !
Sylvaine est une hôte très accueillante.
Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés !
3 jours passés chez Sylvaine, c'était vraiment trop court... Sylvaine et très accueillante et le coeur sur la main. Très vite on se sent à l'aise avec elle, elle connait les bons plans a Montréal et elle met à disposition dans la chambre des brochures, des guides sur montréal, preuve de son attention envers ses invités!!! L'appartement est super : spacieux, confortable et tout équipé!! Pour se rendre au centre ville, le tram n'est pas très loin et une grande épicerie se situe à coté aussi.
Merci pour cet accueil chaleureux, et peut être à bientôt ;)

About the Host, Sylvaine
I like simple things, real things and real relationships. I also love music and sharing a good meal/drinks with passionate discussions. :-)
I've lived with roommates so far, so i'm used to shared housing. I get along easily with others, I like to keep things simple and to keep a good mood around the house !
I love to have people around the house and will do everything to make you feel at home !
