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.

Un grand merci Sylvaine, nous nous sommes vraiment sentis comme à la maison et le quartier est très pratique pour bouger dans Montreal.
We were friendly welcomed @ her place, which was easy to find, well connected to tube and buslines and spotted in a very sympathetic and quiet neighborhood.
Sylvaine as our host and her appartement in second place were the best, we have ever joined over AirBnb.
Sylvaine explained sight-seeings, museums, restaurants and bars located in Montreal to us in a very thankful engaged way, invited us to join her on a car and hiking trip around the city and made us really feel at home by letting us participate in all-day-flat actions in a very pleasant atmosphere!
Thanks to Sylvaine we´ve got a brilliant introduction in how is living in Montreal and much more relaxed vacations.
we can absolutely recommend staying @ her place!
Nous avons adoré notre séjour. Avant le départ Sylvaine nous a adressé les détails précis pour arriver chez elle. Á notre arrivée, nous avons chaleureusement été accueillis.
Pendant le séjour,Sylvaine nous a indiqué les bonnes adresses.
L'appartement est très beau et la chambre confortable, bien situé (métro et bus à proximité), nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison !.
Nous recommandons vivement à tous ceux qui appécient les bonnes rencontres.
Merci Sylvaine, à bientôt j'espère !
Anne et Patrick
L'hôte Sylvaine a été très accueillante, souriante et m'a tout de suite fait sentir comme chez moi. J'ai apprécié ses petites attentions. Elle n'a pas hésité à me conseiller des endroits à visiter et m'aider si besoin. Durant tout mon séjour, elle a fait de sorte que tout se passe au mieux.
Quant à l'appartement et la chambre, ils sont comme dans la description. L'appartement est spacieux, agréable avec beaucoup de lumière, confortable. Le quartier est calme et avec des arrêts de bus juste à côté qui nous emmènent à des stations de métro. Sinon la station de métro la plus proche à pied est à environ 10 minutes maximum.
J'ai passé un agréable séjour en compagnie de Sylvaine dans son appartement et je la recommande! Merci pour ta gentillesse Sylvaine!
After hearing so many good things about airbnb, a friend of mine and I decided to give it a try for our trip to Montreal. The apartment is on the second floor and is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath. It has an open space next to the kitchen where you can hang out and watch movies if you'd like. It does take about 30 min to get to the busy downtown area via public transit, but the area really has a lot of character and is very quiet.
Sylvaine was a great host and made sure we were comfortable saying, "my home is your home." She is very sweet and flexible. Before we arrived, she gave us very detailed instructions on how to get from the airport to her home; she really does know her way around the city.
Overall we had a great experience and would highly recommend staying here! Thanks Sylvaine for your hospitality and kindness! =D
L'appartement de Sylvaine et Alessandro est très agréable, spacieux et lumineux. Belle découverte du quartier (marché Jean Talon, restos...) grâce aux bons conseils de Sylvaine et Alessandro. Et des moments conviviaux qui ont rendu notre séjour à Montréal bien sympathique.
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!
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 !
