There is no place to stay that is closer to the Grand Prix and Osheaga! This neighbourhood is across the river from the downtown center of Montreal. We feel like this place is perfect for vacation rentals and even more ideal for long-term rentals. Enjoy the rooftop garden and the gym.

The apartment was beautiful and had an amazing view. The subway station located immediately behind the building was incredibly convenient, as it allowed easy access to all of Montreal.
Next time we are in Montreal we would definitely stay here again.
The apartment was great! Very nicely decorated and very clean. Isabella and Aonan were always ready for questions and answers. Metro, Bus Terminal, Taxi, Shopping Center and Restaurants - all within walking distance! The neighbor's were very helpful and nice!
We recommend the apartment further in any case!
L'appartement était génial! Bien situé et bien meublé, il a une superbe vue sur Montréal en soirée. Les hôtes sont accueillants et généreux. Thanks Aonan for your support
Ma famille et moi n'aurions pas pu choisir mieux que cette appartement! Une vue magnifique ,appartement propre et TRES bien equipE ,sans parler de l'emplacement de l'appartement qui a beaucoup facilitE notre sejour (metro a 3 minutes de marche!).
You can find anything you need in this apartment! Very clean and FULLY furnished. The view is amazing,specially at night.Everything worked more than expected! We really enjoyed the stay.
We had a very pleasant stay.
The appartement is situated very well and has everything what one needs.
Many thanks for a terrific week!
Nur zu empfehlen!
Everything worked as expected. Very clear instructions, extremely responsive hosts (we missed our connection flight and arrived a day later than originally planned, so it was very reassuring). The apartment is in perfect condition, clean and very well equipped: it really felt like being at home (there even was some olive oil for us to use!). We would highly recommend this place and we would not hesitate to come back.
Un bel endroit pour vivre; situation remarquable à 50 m du métro, avec vue magnifique sur la ville. Définitivement, un endroit de classe supérieure.
Aonan est un hôte disponible qui répond rapidement.
Un petit désagrément: le bruit de l'autoroute.
Me & New Wife Enjoyed The Stay, Location, and the hospitality
Very nice apartment, great location! Perfect for families.
We cannot thank you enough Isabella and Andrea for making our vacation such an indelible experience for memories. The place is extraordinarily warm and cozy with a distinctive touch of class and sophistication. It is clean, airy and bright. The hosts were remarkably communicative and genuinely considerate - promptly and clearly answered our questions with empathy. The self expression of an artist couple is writ large all over the place - the furniture, beds, drapes, pictures, lights and color are incredibly elegant.
The view of downtown across the river is spectacular. The metro station is just a hop away behind the building, conveniently connecting to downtown and all other interesting places in just minutes. We experienced the myriads sights, sounds and flavors of Montreal solely on foot by metro. Montreal and it's people are unlike any - lively, creative and colorful!
