About This Listing
Cozy and spacious comfortable flat located in the best neighbourhood in Montreal, the Mile End/Plateau! Offered by friendly, well-traveled hosts who enjoy making you feel at home and get the most of your visit!
Rent my entire Montreal abode! Perfectly situated in the plateau/mile end on the corner of Saint Laurent and Saint Joseph, you will be walking distance from so many great restaurants, shopping, the metro, major bus routes, in a much more hip and relaxed environment versus staying downtown around too many tourist traps. I will be your host to this amazing city and can help you come up with a custom itinerary for your visit. The apartment is incredibly spacious yet cozy, two queen sized beds, fully-equipped kitchen and laundry, huge outdoor terrace, ALL to yourself! Our host is always closeby to ensure all your needs are met. Because this is our home, you will find everything necessary to make your trip to Montreal a great stay - excellent shower, sound system, and I can also tell you where the free parking spots can be found!
***You can also rent the 2nd bedroom of my apartment (and share the apartment with me) if there are just 2-3 of you and would like to have a Montreal host - if you are interested in this option, you can take a look at my other listing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/71451
2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds, fully equipped home and kitchen, great bathroom and shower with excellent water pressure, free high-speed wifi, and steps away from the metro, resto's, shopping, in Montreal's best neighbhourhood, the Mile End!
I try to greet all my guests and ensure that they have all the info/recommendations they need to have a great stay! On occasion, I've been able to invite guests out to events, etc!
I live in the best neighbourhood in Montreal, walking distance to some of the best restaurants, cafés, music venues, and shopping. This neighbourhood has a strong music and artist community, and plenty of really wonderful people to meet.
There is amazing public transportation in Montreal - my place is steps away from many wonderful resto's and attractions by foot, there are two major bus routes right at my corner literally outside of my front door, and we are five minutes away walking from a metro station, plus taxi's are so easy to get out front.
We do have a pet Siamese so if you have a cat allergy, there might be traces of cat hair. Although overall, Siamese are not as bad allergy-wise as some other breeds.
2 very comfortable bedrooms with queen sized beds, a large, well-equipped kitchen, a huge terrace with BBQ, laundry machine, coffee/espresso!
Interaction with Guests
We try to greet every single one of our guests and assist them during their stay!
The Mile End has the highest artist/musician per capita than in any other city in North America. Surrounded by so many amazing things to do, from concerts, festivals, theatre productions, dance events, talented and very affordable cuisine, this neighbourhood really does have it all!
My place is right on the corner of 2 major bus routes, as well as either a quick 2-minute bus ride or walk to the metro. You never have to reserve a taxi (they drive by my place all day/night), nor do you rarely need to use public transit as everything is within walking distance!
My golden rule is to leave the place as you found it (this enables me to continue to provide affordable and clean accommodations without charging a cleaning fee!), so please clean up after yourselves. Also be respectful of the place and my things- this is my home, where I live. As such, the place should never be used for anything other than for the approved guests to stay during their visit here, so absolutely NO filmmaking, photoshoots, parties, or other get-togethers without first receiving my permission! Thanks a lot for respecting my house rules!!
Mes 2 amis, mon petit ami et moi avons été très bien accueillis par Sheenah. Tout était comme sur les photos. L'appartement est très spacieux, nous avions la place pour poser nos affaires dans les chambres et dans la salle de bain. De plus, bien que la rue soit très passante, nous avons très bien dormi dans la chambre qui donnait sur la rue (juste entendu au loin un peu le vrombissement d'un concert dans la salle à quelques maisons mais ce n'était pas dérangeant pour dormir).
Sheenah was extremely communicative, as well as her sister. They were very welcoming and helpful. The apartment was great - even more spacious than we expected, and very cozy with the essential amenities. The neighborhood was perfect. Lovely, quaint, cultural and close to everything
Sheenah was so nice and accommodating. She answered all of our questions and always responded to our messages promptly. The apartment's description is accurate - very clean and organized, and it is located a great area. Instructions are provided for everything, including parking which is helpful if you have difficulty reading the french parking signs. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay and person to rent from!
Apartment was exactly as advertised. Great location right on Saint Laurent. Check-in process was easy, Sheenah's sister met us at the apartment and went through everything we needed to know.
Couldn't ask for a better experience!
When we arrived, Sheenah and Robbie made us feel very welcome in their home. The apartment was clean, cozy, and warm in the cold weather. Sheenah even went so far as to put water in the bedroom for us in case we were thirsty! We thought the apartment was in a great location, close to great local bars (recommended by Shennah), close to the metro, and close to local shops and convenient stores. All in all, we had a great time in Montreal and we wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else!
Sheenah and Robbie were extremely accommodating and welcomed us to a cozy, beautiful, clean home. So much light and greenery in the home.
Their flat is in Mile End neighborhood on Saint Laurent street, which was so perfectly convenient to restaurants, bars, groceries stores, and metros, while still not being loud. The space was possibly even nicer in person than in the photos. It was four of us staying for a long weekend and we had a wonderful time. I recommend their home highly!

About the Host, Sheenah
Hi, I'm Sheenah, and welcome to the Mile End, the best neighbourhood in Montreal! I love meeting new people, learning about new cultures and languages, and have a thirst to discover the world... when I travel, I always choose airbnb, and as such, it only makes sense to host travellers in my home and provide them with similar, more local experience! I am a friendly, outgoing and well-traveled person and being a musician/restauranteur, I can provide my guests with recommendations about some of the best things to do, places to eat, shows to see, where to shop, where to walk, etc. Montreal is an amazing city and has an overabundance of events and fun things to see and do!
I am in my early 30's and pride myself on creating a comfortable and welcoming home for new friends and travellers- I am a local musician and tour around the world with a few different music groups, and am also active in the service industry as a manager of a hip restaurant in my neighbourhood (Pizzeria Magpie). In my past life, I was a manager in human resources and founded an award-winning non-profit organization to connect Canadian youth with organizations in Africa. I have been living in Montreal for almost 5 years and am bilingual in french and english, and previously lived in Toronto, New Mexico, Texas, Saskatchewan, and Maui is my 2nd home.
The bar right underneath our place which has vegetarian food, Quebec beers on tap, and live shows every night! Also, prices are very reasonable!
My favourite "hole in the wall" with one of the oldest and longest-running DJ's, Coco, who is there every night except Sundays. Come here for the characters, stay for the snacks!
The best pizza Italian pizza in the neighbourhood, amazing, busy atmosphere, friendly staff, five minutes up the street!
