Cozy room near metro, free parking

Apartment - Private room · Avenue de Chateaubriand, Montreal, QC H2S 2N7, Canada

Bright and cozy room in a large flat, shared with a friendly couple and a lazy kitty. Very comfy queen-size bed, large deck in the back, steps from the metro, near a great local food market, free private parking available. Wifi & full kitchen.

The Space

Really comfortable bed, wifi, proximity to public transit and groceries, free parking in the back and laundry.
You will have a private room in a large flat, in the front of the house, with a big window, a desk, queen sized bed, closet, dresser, and a bedside table. In the summer the deck in the back is open for use as well. It's new so we don't have photos of it yet. You can also use the kitchen and living room.

The apartment is shared with a couple: a musician and a dressmaker. Our bedroom is on the other side of the apartment, so you will not be disturbed.

The grocery store is a 2 minute walk, and there's a market where you can buy anything from fresh local produce to fancy cheese to organic meat, a 10 minute walk away.

We invite our guests to use the kitchen. We always leave some space for your stuff, put it wherever you want, we won't eat it. Promise.

There are 2 sinks in the bathroom. We generally use the one on the left and leave the one on the right for our guests. If you need to do laundry, we will gladly show you how (our machine is pretty new and high-tec, so it can be somewhat confusing).

Guest Access

Kitchen: space in the fridge, stove, dishwasher, sink (obviously) and coffee-maker.
Laundry: washer and dryer
WiFi, backyard where you can have your breakfast in the summer.

Interaction with Guests

We like to answer questions and give advice on what to do in Montreal based on your interests. In general we like to give our guests their space, but we're always ready to help.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is pretty quiet. There are many cute restaurants and bars nearby, ask for suggestions. When you're here, you have to check out Jean Talon market where local farmers and artisans come to sell their produce, concoctions etc.

Getting around

The metro is on the same block as us and there are several bus lines within a 2 minute walk radius. In the summer there is a bixi stand on the next street over, so if you're the cycling type, it's very convenient. If you drive here, you will want to leave your car parked for most of your stay. There is even a night bus (361) that runs frequently on weekends, so when you find yourself in party central (St. Laurent area), it's very easy to get home even in the middle of the night.

    Response from Masha And Conor:

    Jean et sa femme sont un couple très sympa. Ils sont seulement restés une nuit mais ils étaient très gentils et charmants. Nous les recevrons encore si jamais ils revenaient à Montréal.

  • Room is in a rather quiet neighborhood, but is conveniently located just minutes away from the metro line!

  • Masha was very friendly and happy to chat. I met Connor briefly.

    The room was very disappointing, especially when compared with other accommodation provided for a lower price.

    The other item that was very disappointing is that I specifically made it clear that I required parking for my car. I was told in previous communication that free parking was available. We parked our car in what we assumed to be an acceptable space, but when we left in the morning we had a parking fine for $57!

    As all signs and communication are in French, there was no way possible that we would have known that the space we had parked our car in was restricted. I would have expected our hosts to have either:
    1. Pointed out where the free parking was
    2. Arranged for a parking permit (at our cost)

    Response from Masha And Conor:

    "We parked our car in what we assumed to be an acceptable space, but when we left in the morning we had a parking fine for $57!" You did not use the provided free parking space behind our house, and you neither mentioned it nor inquired about it when you arrived. Had you asked, you would have been directed to the parking spot in the back of the house. Please don't blame us for your mistake.

  • Welcoming hosts, but the place is a little bit messy, and not perfectly clean .... Weird smell in the house. Pictures not realists.

  • Masha and Conor were good at communicating and working out the details for my arrival -- it was a bit complicated because they were out when I arrived, but we sorted it out with no problem. The room was comfortable, and the house is pleasant. The shower worked fine. The location was great -- less than 5 mins from the subway station and close to a big outdoor food market. I was happy with my experience.

  • Masha & Conor sont des hôtes très sympathiques ! Ils sont aussi disponibles pour toute demande d'infos ou de bons plans. Appartement spacieux, bien situé (pas très loin du métro), rues commerçantes à proximité...
    Si vous cherchez un logement temporaire, foncez vous ne serez pas déçu de votre séjour chez eux !

  • Masha and Connor were exceptional hosts. They provided space and accomodations exactly as advertised in their listing and were extremely helpful in offering recommendations for what to do and eat in MTL. They were very respectful and I would highly recommend their place for a stay.

  • Conor and Masha are very warm, welcoming hosts with a nice flat. The guest room is quite comfortable and private, and the place is very conveniently located relative to Bixi and Métro. Great experience in a beautiful city!

  • Masha and Conor's place in Montreal was the perfect place for my business trip. It was conveniently located near a Metro stop and the area itself had plenty of shops and restaurants to explore.

    Both Masha and Conor were very helpful with directions and had a great suggestions for nearby spots to check out.

    Definitely recommend them and their place if you decide to visit Montreal.

  • Lovely apartment very close to metro so is an excellent base to get around Montreal. Masha and Conor were not home during our stay but were very helpful and their friend Emily who met us in the apartment was lovely too.

About
We are two artists: Conor is a musician and Masha is a clothing designer. We are both passionate about our respective fields, but our lives revolve around much more than just work. We are socially-conscious and LGBTQ-friendly. Conor is a hockey fan, so if you stay with us during hockey season, you will surely get a taste of Canada on that count. Masha loves theatre and musicals, so if you're looking for activities of that sort, she will gladly be your guide. We have a cute kitty cat named Maggie, she's mostly scared of strangers, but you will definitely meet her. We invite our guests to make themselves at home here, and we take the attitude as if you were our roommate during your stay.
