This quaint 1-bedroom apartment, which can very comfortably accommodate 2 guests, has all the amenities to make you feel at home. Situated in one of Montréal's best neighbourhoods, you can find everything within walking distance.

The Space

A charming 3rd floor apartment on a quiet street in the heart of Mile-End, one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in the city! If you want to experience life in a traditional Montreal walk-up, this might be the place for you! You will find a perfect mix of quiet tree-lined streets and parks, and lively stretches of shop and restaurant-filled areas in the vicinity. There are tons of amazing cafes, bars and restaurants, ranging from affordable to high-end, just steps away.

The apartment has original decorative mouldings and hardwood floors. It has a bright double bedroom/dressing room, equipped with a double bed, facing the street in the front. There is a small shared balcony off the bedroom, perfect for a breakfast and/or coffee in the morning sun.

There is a large open area in the back where the living room, kitchen and dining area are. I have a flat-screen TV with a VCR and DVD player (and a pretty good movie collection :) ), as well as a stereo. The kitchen is equipped with most things you will need, including fridge, stove, cooking utensils, a great espresso/cappuccino machine, kettle, toaster, sandwich maker, waffle maker and blender. Another larger shared balcony in the back can be accessed from this area.

There is a laundromat a couple of blocks away, right across the street from Fairmount bagels, a 24-hour fresh bagel store where you can get some of Montreal's best bagels while you wait for your laundry :)

  • Mia's place was exactly as advertised and while we did not meet Mia, her boyfriend was there to let us in and was very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is certainly the draw here; lots of cafés and restaurants within walking distance and close to Mount Royal park. We're so glad we did this rather than stay at a motel because the experience was so much more local flavor.

    The downside to being in such a cool neighborhood is that parking is tight. I almost mistakenly parked in an area that required a permit because I had a hard time understanding the parking signs. My one suggestion for Mia would be to send a parking map of the area to guests so they know where the potential spots are and also know to stay out of the permitted areas. However, once we got parked we just left the car there and walked everywhere so it was not really a big deal.

    Thank you Mia for sharing your place with us. We're a little envious that you live in such a cool neighborhood.

  • Amazing location, close to everything that you may need for a short (or not that short) visit to Montreal. It's a oozy and classic Plateau apartment with wooden floors, a street-facing balcony, etc.

    In overall it was a good experience, but we were expecting something more modern and organized (as we saw on the photos). We had to remove some of the owner's clothes to be able to hang our own at the entrance and there were really too many personal things around.

    We have stayed at better places in the same area for the same money, so the only downside here was the relation between quality and price.

  • This apartment enjoys a prime location and as soon as you pass the door, you feels like home.
    I highly recommend everyone to spend a few days in this apartment to discover this beautiful city of Montreal.

  • Mia's place is spacious and very well-located. Staying there is a true Montreal experience, especially during the summer, when you can sit on the balcony and easily walk to coffee shops, restaurants and the mountain, as well as the nearby BIXI stop. That said, the place is quite lived in, and hadn't been cleaned when I arrived. This may have been because Mia was out of town. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and I recommend the place for someone looking for a low-key space with a great location.

  • Location, location, location!! Mia's Mile End apartment is perfect for travelers who want a true Montreal experience, rather than staying in one of the downtown hotels (not that there's anything wrong with that).

    Mia's apt is a quick jaunt away from a number of good brunch/coffee spots, some nice pubs (Dieu du Ciel, in particular), two amazing bagel bakeries (Fairmount and St-Viateur) and some great shopping as well. Jean-Talon market (a must visit) is not too far away either. Fair warning to the picky sleepers out there in airbnb land: though I slept on the blow up mattress, my friend (who slept on the bed) did note that the coils/springs in the mattress were pretty prominent.

    Other than that, we enjoyed our stay @ Mia's apt very much!

  • I rented Mia's apartment for my parents who were visiting from out of the country. The apartment and the host were great! The neighborhood is one of the best in Montreal in terms of combination of quiet resting, good dining, and accessibility to downtown. The apartment was in excellent condition with lots of comfy amenities. Mia is extremely nice and easy to communicate with. My folks had a great time. Thanks Mia!

  • Hi Mia, Thanks so much for the use of your apt. I really found the location to be perfect. i loved the neighbourhood and all the close-by amenities. The apt had a good feel and was bright and sunny with a cute balcony and plants. appealed to the gardener in me. Hope they survived after my watering! Lots of stuff to use in fridge-so saved on cost of buying basics. very good spice and tea selections. Great choice of DVDs so used a few in the evenings. Thanks for the Montreal map.Overall I was pleased with my stay at Mia"s.
