Spacious, charming, exceptionally bright and well located apartment on the top floor of an older 3 story building. Enjoy a quiet street steps away from most attractions and the metro/bus system. I have bikes available for guests to use free of charge

The space

Excellent location downtown on a quiet hidden street. Spacious apartment on the top floor of a quiet and very charming triplex. Many original architectural details and features. Solid wood floors, doors and cabinetry. Plaster mouldings throughout. VERY bright with large windows that face South.

Unbeatable location, 3 minutes from Metro Atwater, steps from St. Catherine Street, Alexis Nihon Shopping Mall, numerous grocery stores, and countless restaurants, bars and cafes. Walking distance from Crescent street, Peel street, the historic Lachine Canal, Atwater market, Windsor Station and other attractions. This apartment is located in the Shaugnessy Village, one of Montreal's oldest and densest neighbourhoods.

Amenities include a free washer/dryer, full kitchen with gas stove, living room and seperate bedroom. There is free but limited parking on the street directly in front of the building. More available in the surrounding area making it rarely impossible to find a spot further than 5 minutes walk.

My home is suitable for respectful and mature guests. No pets or smoking.

Guest access

The apartment is equipped with WFI, free laundry and cable (website hidden) supplies (spices, oil, coffee, tea) as well as light breakfast is included.

I also have two bicycles and helmets available for use free of charge. Please mention at the time of booking if you will be requiring them. A minimum of 72 hours of notice is required in order to guarantee that they will be available.

Interaction with guests

I meet and greet, provide a tour, and do a personal key exchange. Your Privacy is assured at all times however if you require assistance I am only a phone call away.

You may check out whenever you please as I have a secure box for leaving the keys on the day of departure.

Very close to St. Catherine's street. Parking is tough, it's limited. We got lucky twice and not so lucky one other time where we had to pay. Karl is great at communicating and answered our messages very fast.

My girlfriend and I wanted to go to Montreal for a week trip. Found Karl's place and it checked all the boxes. Location: It's centrally-located near the metro(s) which are the best way to get around the city. Also within walking distance of Mount Royal which was very welcome as that was on our destination list. There's also a mall nearby so if you need a pharmacy or anything it's easily-found. Timmy HoHo's is nearby as well if you want your caffeine fix. Cleanliness: Very clean and well-kept. Had no issues with the condition of the apartment. Style: high-ceilings and very similar to a pre-war place in NYC if you're familiar with it. Very much liked it and the price for what we got. Note on parking: We drove up and threw my car in a nearby lot for $52 (CAD) for 4 days ($13/day). Was easier than dealing with moving my car and the street cleaning. The parking in the area does require placards for certain times and free parking isn't necessarily in the immediate area. Karl said he could provide info on the parking, but I didn't ask about it and just decided to leave my car in a lot. Overall, I liked the place and was very happy with the trip. Karl's a great host and kept in contact throughout the trip.

My wife and I spent a weekend at Karl's place. The location is great. We were able to easily find parking in front of the apartment several times over the weekend. We never actually met Karl, but that was not a problem at all. Karl was great communicating with is and were able to easily get into the apartment without him there. The apartment is represented accurately and we would definitely recommend staying there.

This place was very cute and had everything we needed. We were able to borrow bikes which was great. The espresso machine is also awesome. Close to the subway and a commercial stretch.

Would highly recommend Karl's place. Karl himself was very helpful at answering questions considering this was our first time using airbnb. Location is excellent. It's a very short walk to Rue Ste Catherine which has a bunch of very good restaurants (I would highly recommend SamCha to anyone who likes Asian food -- it blew me away.) Also a short walk to the metro. Would definitely stay here again if we make another trip to Montreal.

Great location! Only a 5 minute walk to the metro station and many restaurants and grocery stores. The apartment was cozy and has everything you would need for a weekend getaway.

I'm born and raised in Montreal but have always loved exploring new cities and countries. I have a strong passion for the outdoors and study Environmental Sciences. Love meeting people from all sorts of different places and try and get out there as much as I can!

I try and treat every guest in my city in all the wonderful ways that I've been treated while travelling abroad. I hope that anyone who visits will come to appreciate why I choose to call this vibrant city home. Bienvenue à Montréal!

Je parle francais aussi et je vous invite de corresponder en n'importe quelle langue! :)
