I LOVE MY PLACE.
I live in a large, newly renovated 2nd floor apartment. It's located in a nice part of beautiful Plateau Mont-Royal, close to cafés, boutiques, parks and general hipness. It's sunny, cozy, inspiring and welcoming.
MY PLACE :
There is a big fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave,
dining room four 4 people (extendable to 6...8),
a master bedroom with walk-in closet,
a large bathroom with bathtub and good water pressure,
a living room that is sunny in the afternoon with a stereo system for iPod and radio.
a spare room for guests and office which also serves as a storage space while I am away.
Internet connection with wifi. Washer and Dryer.
Large outdoor patio with a BBQ you are welcome to use.
I offer linen and towels, books, umbrellas and all kitchen stockings such as oils and spices.
What I DON'T have : a televisions, a landline telephone, an espresso machine (but I do have a stove top italian coffee maker :)
Within a 2 minute walk (2 blocks) : grocery stores, restaurants, parks, Bixie station (city-wide public bicycle service : (website hidden))
Within a 10 minute walk (8 blocks) : Many more restaurants, fancier groceries (butchers, great bakeries, fruits and vegetables, fish, cheese and other specialty shops.) flower shops, clothing boutiques, yoga studio, gym, bigger parks with pools...
Within the neighborhood... well, the Plateau Mont-Royal has everything.
TRANSPORTATION : There are 4 different buses within 2 blocks - one north, one south, one east and one west. There is usually a bus every 10-15 minutes and each brings you to a metro station. The closest stations are Laurier on the orange line and Papineau on the Green line. There is parking on the street, although Montreal is notorious for it's complicated "no parking" zones and permits. The hands down best way to get around (even in winter!) is on a bicycle.
On a bicycle, you can be anywhere within 20 minutes (almost).

My husband and I spent a wonderful 4 days at Jacques' apartment in Le Plateau. The apartment was clean, comfortable, cozy and stylish, and located in a great neighborhood full of cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops. There is a lovely park across the street, and Jacques' apartment has everything you need for your stay. He was a gracious host, never imposing but there if we needed anything. We had a fantastic trip, and would stay in his apartment again in a heartbeat.
Jacques' home was beautiful, clean and well-stocked. It is very comfortable and well-located. He is a wonderful, gentle host who was available to answer questions and respected our space and time. I would recommend this room to all.
Jacques was very easy to communicate with and has made every effort to make staying at his place easy. It was absolutely spotless, with a remarkable bathroom and incredibly comfortable bed. we had arranged the rental for visiting artists, it was such a pleasure to open his door and see where our guests would be staying.
will do it again in a heart beat : )
Très belle expérience !
Jacques est très accueillant et nous a donné de bons conseils pour visiter le quartier et la ville de Montréal.
L'appartement est vraiment agréable à vivre : décoration sympa, lumineux, calme, propre, cuisine bien équipée (pour ceux qui aiment cuisiner)...
...et extrêmement bien situé, à proximité de commerces et restaurants sympas.
Avec plaisir pour y revenir ! ;-)
Jacques' apartment was amazing and he was a wonderful host - the apartment is big, beautiful and clean and in a great area - close to some lovely streets with cafes and not far from the metro. The kitchen is great, there's a lovely balcony out the back, and the shower is incredible! The two bedrooms were plenty big enough; we were just one couple but you could easily fit two couples and the apartment would not feel crowded at all. Jacques was incredibly kind and thoughtful, we would absolutely stay here again.
Great place, perfect location, very clean and well run. Thank you!
