The Space

Single room available to rent for short term all year long in a fully furnished apartment.
The place is situated next to metro Laurier ( 2 minutes walk ), very central and surrounded by cafes, park and supermarket.
The Plateau it's a very special neighborhood, full of activities, restaurants, and much more to discover.
There are plenty of interesting things to see just by walking distance and the public transport are a couple of minutes away from the house.
Parc Laurier is just in front of the house; there is a public pool in the park and few free activities during the summer.
Although the apartment is quite central, the streets are very quiet.

The room is furnished and the apartment is shared with a couple. We have our own bedroom, a living room, bathroom and kitchen.
We have a cat. Mr Davis is very quiet, friendly and it won't bother you at all.
If you feed him he will be your best friend!

Questions I got asked often from guests:

1- Is there a supermarket near the apartment:
-The closest is Metro supermarket about less that 5 minutes walk. Its open until 10.00pm.

2-Is there Public transport next to the apartment?
-Metro Laurier is 3 minutes walk from the apartment. It will take you pretty much everywhere in short time. There are also few buses avaialble in the area.

3-Can I cook in the apartment?
-Yes you can. You are free to buy whatever you want and use our frigde as well as pans and stove. We are vegetarian so we kindly ask to respect that and avoid to cook a huge steak which will leave an strong smell everywhere.
We had lots of people cooking and never had isssues with it.

4-What time can i check out?
-We are flexible with this and try to accomodate the time to our guests. We usually talk about it when we receive our guest so we can all make sure the time will work for everyone.

We live on a quiet street and we never had issues with noise. Two weekend guests brought up the fact that you can hear tv and people chatting though walls. The Plateau is known for having apartment with thin walls; indeed it can happen to hear people talking as well as tv especially at weekend when things get more social. While this never bothered everyone but a person, I still like to add it so you know. In case you are particuarly sensitive to this, you can bring earplugs.

Second concern from the same guest: my cat.
Our cat is friendly shy and all guest that love cats ended up adoring Mr Davis. He does not go in the guest room and he minds his business all time. His toilet is at the entry and we do keep this clean all time.
However if anything cat related bothers you then I can only suggest not to chose apartments with one in it.

Check In
  • Valeria and her boyfiend were very nice and hepful for my check - in. She gave me clear information to reach her flat. The room was clean an orderly. Mr Devis, her cat, was very quiet, polite and little shy.
    The flat is 5 minutes walk to the Laurer metro station and near a big market shop.

    I really recommed this flat.

  • Valeria and Kai are super hosts, hospitable and generous, and the place worked perfectly for me. Across the street from lovely Parc Laurier (with a swimming pool in summer) and close to the metro and a bixi stand, the location is great. I expect I'll be staying there again as I often visit Montréal.

  • I had a wonderful time staying with Valeria and Kai. They are very easy going people, great to talk to and make you feel at home in their place.

  • I had a wonderful time at Valeria's place, so good in fact that I did not want to leave - I stayed one more day :) Valeria and her boyfriend Kai are lovely and will make you feel at home. The room is very nice, quiet and functional, with a comfortable bed and desk. The neighbourhood is one of the most beautiful in Montreal, just a few steps away from park Laurier where you can enjoy jogging or a picnic. It is also close to the lively Mile End district which is full of good restaurants and cafes (for vegetarians, try La Lumiere du Mile End!) Thank you Valeria and Kai and hope to see you soon!

  • Valeria and Kai were very helpful and friendly, the room was comfortable, and the location was great. It was easy to get to, there were many great bars, restaurants, and other shops in easy walking distance, and close proximity to the Metro made the rest of the city convenient. I highly recommend staying here.

  • Thanks, Valeria! My stay was pleasant as always. I love the convenience of your place to Mont-Royal Avenue where there are plenty of places to eat and shop. It was also nice to take advantage of the different yoga studios that are close by too. I look forward to seeing you again!

  • Valeria & Kai are the Best Hosts! They are Kind, Warm & Welcoming folk. When I arrived with my large suitcase, Kai came down to greet me at the door and help me with my luggage and helped me settle in since Valeria could not be there. He helped me figure out my journey to get to my destination and let me know where everything I needed could be found. The apartment is in a great location with beautiful Laurier Park on the street corner. Valeria's photography has left a ripple effect in my heart. I look forward to my return in warmer weather. I hope to return to Montreal in the Summer and already reserving my dates! Thank you V & K~

  • The place was nice, well located, and Valeria and her boyfriend were accommodating and seemed legitimately concerned with my comfort. Be warned that they have a cat (who is very cute) so if you're not familiar with the sights and, in particular, smells of one, then you might be surprised. None of this affects the actual bedroom, which is very nice, though. Also be warned that sound seeps through the walls easily, so if you don't want to hear muffled conversations or TV that's something. Ultimately none of these are things I mind, and I would certainly consider staying here again! given the hospitality and value.

  • It is funny because this place turns out to be a few doors down from another place I stayed at through AirBnB. I liked this room, it was simple but it did the job I needed, a place to sleep for a few hours and keep my stuff in. The hosts were friendly and I was able to use their fridge to keep some food shopping in (You can't go to Montreal without buying food!). Just so you know going into it, I am pretty sensitive to noises and you can hear the upstairs neighbour as well as the stair case. It is best for someone to know this going into it. Having said that, I know what to expect now and I would recommend this place to others looking for a single bed. To be clear, the hosts themselves were very courteous and quiet (I slept in the one day and I didn't hear them at all)

Hey! I'm an Italian living in Montreal since 2008, who travelled a lot around the world. During my trips I realized how special is to be welcomed in a new country from the locals and how more enjoyable and safe the experience can be. I'm a commercial photography student and Im currently working part-time as a massage therapist. I live with my boyfriend and our cat in a very cute apartment in the heart of Plateau Mont Royal. We are vegetarian but we do welcome people to eat and cook whatever they like. We are quiet ,friendly, traveling lovers, open minded people who likes to enjoy our house and watch movies, especially during the cold canadians nights! We are more than happy to host nice, respectful and joyful people!
