Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The apartment was lovely and we especially loved the neighborhood. Our two sons played pick-up soccer games at the park down the block. It was great to be so close to Jean Talon market -as well as the wonderful marche Milano. Ben and Claude gave us great recommendations and were completely available for any assistance we might need. highly recommend.

  • Accueil délicieux de cette adorable famille. Appartement conforme en tous points à la description, idéalement situé pour découvrir Montreal avec des enfants ! Un parc juste à côté, de supers restos à deux rues, le marché et plein de commerces à deux pas, et le métro à 5 minutes à pied. Une pépite ! je mettrais bien 7 sur 5 si c'était possible.

  • Ben and Claude's apartment was clean, cool, uncluttered and comfortable for our family. Our hosts were friendly and available if we needed them, but everything was as advertised so we didn't need anything! We really loved the Little Italy neighbourhood and wished we could have stayed a little longer.

  • The owners Ben and Claude are very nice and were very helpful. the piston coffee maker broke and Ben replaced it the same day. I was having problem connecting to the wifi with my PC and Ben spent half an hour working through it and found the problem My wife with her mac had no problem. Comfortable beds, enough pots and pans to cook as much as you want. Big fridge, comfortable reading chair in the front room. the place was clean, 5 minute to the Beaubien metro station and 20 minutes you are downtown. Lots of cafes, restaurants and Jean Talon market.We would stay there again.

    thanks Ben and Claude and Charlotte.

  • What a great place! We used to live in Montreal, and it was just like being home. Super neighbourhood - lots of families with young kids, and great food for all ages is close at hand. Walk to the market at Jean-Talon and go wild, foodie-style! As for the place itself - clean, comfortable, a nice layout and a great kitchen. The hosts are easily found, very friendly and helpful. What more could you ask? A great place to stay. We'd love to come back.

  • A weekend in Montreal with another couple was superb. Loved this 2 BR apartment, nice location and gracious hosts. Parked the car on the street with no problems. Walked to the amazing farmer's market.All in all a very pleasant stay.
