Lovely and sunny Loft on 2 floors, within the "Lofts de la Grande Allee" complex, on the shores of Lake Lacoursiere. Huge fenestration, 16' ceiling in the living room. Open kitchen recentely renovanted, granite countertops. Peace and tranquility 10-15 minutes from downtown.
As for public transportation, bus nr 168 will take you downtown in 20 minutes.
I have the 50Gb/month cable internet with videotron. So streaming is ok, but not too much or you might make it go kaboum!
Projection setup - watch your favorite HD movies in the couch.
Clean towels and bedsheets for guests.
Note : I have a second mattress, however, its a small one, but still comfy!
Nearby: Bicycle path, tennis court, gym, public transit, walking trail along the river. For groceries, place du commerce is minutes away. You will find there a Loblaws, an IGA as well as coffee places (second cup and cafe vienne). Also, here's a list of a few restaurants on the island : Chez Carl, la piazetta, les enfants terribles.
Very cool loft, great space! We had a wonderful time in Montreal!
Alex was a great host. He was very accommodating and patient as we arrived at midnight after a long drive from the States. The apartment was clean and is well situated in the city with easy access to freeways for moving around Montreal or leaving the city to go skiing. Unlike many other airbnb postings, the building has off-street parking which was great after a big snow fall. The lot was plowed and we didn't have to worry about figuring out the Montreal plowing/parking schedule. The area is nice and safe, we had no trouble leaving our ski gear in the car where it was visible. We highly recommend the loft--great value.
Loved the location of Alex's place! It was easy for us to drive in and out of the city and access all of our favorite places that we always hit up in Montreal. The loft was also located in a quiet residential area, making for a nice getaway after a busy day in Montreal.
Modern, cute and comfortable loft on l'Ile des Soeurs. Fast and easy commute to Montreal if you have a car and easy access from the States.
Alexandru was very responsive to all our needs.
Public transportation to Center City is available but we did not use it.
We really enjoyed our time in the apartment. Alex and his family made us feel really welcome and were helpful in so many ways. We had no car but public transport links were easy. The internet was fast, the bed comfortable and area quiet and good for walking. It was our first time using airbnb and a great introduction.
The apartment was beautiful! The location is close to a highway which makes it very easy to get to downtown Montreal. While Alex was out of town during the weekend of my stay he made sure to make arrangements for his parents to greet me with the apt. keys upon my arrival. I would definitely book another weekend in the near future. Thanks!
What a great place to stay: a lovely, homey, comfortable and clean apartment. Alexandru was a great host. He was really attentioned, uncomplicated and made everything easy for our stay in Montreal. We stayed at Alexandru's place for a whole month and couldn't imagine a better place to stay. Highly recommend!!!
Alexandru is an amazing host.
He is a gentleman and provided us with a very clean and well equipped place that we felt like we were home! Parking was a breeze and we were also able to enjoy walking in near parks and shopping at the shops nearby.
We look forward to staying here again and would definitely recommend it for anyone who's considering staying in Montreal. 5 Star!!!
I stayed in Alex's apartment for a couple of months while I worked in Montreal. It was lovely. Île des Soeurs is a perfect place to live if you enjoy peace and quiet, but very close to the city. It is also a great place to walk and enjoy the outdoors. Alex's apartment is chill, quiet and clean, and Alex was an impeccable host. He is sweet, fun to talk to and offers good suggestions for things to do and places to see in Montreal. I had a great summer at Alex's loft and I hope to go back sometime soon!
Great staying in Alex's place, we had everything we needed. Alex was great to deal with. We hope to cross paths again with him. The place was big and clean and very quite.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
