Description

The space

Bienvenue à Montréal! If you are looking to live like a Quebec local, the Plateau is the place to do it!

Please read on about parking - Open concept available daily or weekly with CAD pricing. A third guest is $25 per night on 8-foot sofa or single air mattress. Linen, cooking essentials and toiletries provided.

The condo-style unit is directly off boulevard St-Laurent ("The Main") and perfect for 1 person or a couple. It's surrounded by 1) the retro shops of avenue Mont-Royal, 2) the delicious smoked meat and bagels of St-Laurent , 3) the French cafes, shops and restos on rue St-Denis, and 4) the incredible Portugese bakeries and BBQ rotisseries off Marie-Anne and Rachel streets.

Parking is available evenings and weekends only. Depending on the duration of your stay, it can sometimes be made available if arranged well in advance. During business hours there are free spots around the building with non red tag zone residential parking, and in all the nearby streets (you won't need your car much). Mile-End is within walking distance, and tourist landmarks like Shwartz's Deli (smoked meat), Fairmount Bagels, Parc Lafontaine, and "the mountain" itself Parc Mont-Royal. Pharmacies, banks, groceries, bakeries, convenience stores all just steps outside your door, and once you settle in, you won't have to far to go for your needs.

The bedroom comes equipped with queen bed, your own closet and a faux fireplace. The bathroom has a standard bath and shower, a new vanity, washer/dryer units, iron and mini ironing board. The open kitchen and dining area have stainless steel appliances and a kitchen island and are fully equipped for cooking and dining for four. The living room has an HD flatscreen, Apple TV with Netflix, and about 5-6 TV stations. The 8 foot long sofa is super comfortable for a 3rd guest and a single airbed is also available (your choice, max 3 guests in this unit). A/C is installed June to Sept. and is portable. You have all you need for cooking here, if you can resist the temptation to eat out at all of the amazing restaurants in the neighbourhood. You also have all linen and toiletries provided, and you don.t need to go out to worry about buying cooking essentials and condiments for a one night stay because these are provided to guests, and unlike many other Airbnb's that don't provide this, that's a big plus for a short visit!

PLEASE print out your house manual for instructions and passcodes, and checkout my guide for some great eateries, museums, etc! I provide full directions, metro maps, tourism brochures + take out menus. Let me know if there is anything else I can arrange for you in advance so I can make sure you have a comfy, enjoyable stay.

Once again, bienvenue à Montréal!

Guest access

Meet and greet upon your arrival to provide you with a quick tour, and / or keys and answers to any of your questions about the apartment or the island of Montreal :)

Interaction with guests

I'm available anytime by cell, text or email notification, and I am happy to provide helpful tour guide tips and assist with special needs.

The neighborhood

The Plateau is world famous. From Schwartz's Smoked Meat Deli to Fairmount Bagels to restaurants like Lawrence, The Tuck Shop and Au Pied de cochon, you have no shortage of fantastic eateries, cafés, and fine dining just steps away. Parc Mont-Royal (the mountain) is also down the street for a bike ride, hiking or sightseeing. Avenue Mont-Royal, half a block, is terrific for finding great vintage clothing, cafes and bakeries, and nearby rue St-Denis is bustling with boutiques and fun shopping. Only a block from the apartment are a bank, grocery and liquor stores, Portuguese bakeries and rotisserie chicken hotspots, nightclubs, convenience and clothing stores.

Getting around

55 St-Laurent Bus (at Marie-Anne) arrives often, is close to the apartment, and takes you to Place des Arts downtown and to Old Montreal. I find it easier to take the bus downtown but the metro line back to Mont-Royal station as coming back home the bus gets trapped in traffic along (website hidden)-Laurent.

Mont-Royal Métro (orange line) is 7 short blocks east from the flat. Very walkable but with lots of luggage, grab the 11 Montagne or the 96 Mont-Royal bus to connect you when you exit the metro and get off three stops (email hidden)-Laurent in front of Your pharmacy, Pharmaprix. This is also the corner where your banks, grocery stores, the liquor store and other essential stores are (website hidden). Dominique is one street east, and you need to walk down south one block to Marie-Anne to arrive at the flat.

Other things to note

Parking is available evenings and weekends, with full weekends from Fri at 7pm to Mon at 7am. Please notify me of your estimated and exact time of arrival and departure schedule, and keep me constantly updated, as the prep schedule for the apartment will be based on your arrival time and cleaning / greeting services are on a paid schedule if my assistant is there to help out.

A/C installed June to end of Sept.

Although not 100% wheelchair accessible, there are only approx. 5 steps up to the apt door.

The host was very responsible, helpful and friendly. Great location, very close to centre village of Montreal, walk distance to many Montreal's significant restaurants and coffee shops. The room is full equipped and clean. Love to stay here again for the next time.

We had a wonderful time at David's. The apartment is lovely, and in a great area, close to cafe's, shops, and restaurants. David was very kind, quick to respond to messages, and check in was a breeze. Will stay there again next time we're in Montreal!

David's place was perfect for us. There was fresh fruit and treats and basic amenities available (even eggs!). The apartment was clean and inviting with on-site laundry to boot. And the location was exactly what we wanted, near some great main thoroughfares. We had a great stay without any hitches. Hoping to make it back sometime soon.

David's apartment is great for going out and exploring Montreal. There is a private parking spot behind the apartment, which was great as I was driving to the city. He had some basic food necessities waiting for us as well. He welcomed us to the apartment and explained how everything worked. I would definitely stay here again!

Bonjour et bienvenue! Je parle français aussi. I am a manager / host / assistant for homeowners in Montreal who like to short-term list or show their homes. A proud Montrealer for two decades, I love to show off our big-little island just as much. I've worked at Airbnb itself, with a background in arts, culture and travel. I advocate for eco and econo-sharing, and try to be the consummate host and guest. I enjoy a unique space and experience, as well as being able to see a city through the eyes of its locals.
