About this listing
English to follow.. reveillez dans une 3.5 dans le vrai coeur du Montréal, le Plateau. Près du boulevard St-Laurent ou 'The Main', rue St-Denis, avenue Mont-Royal et Parc Mont-Royal. Rest assured you'll have a great stay in this cozy one bedroom in the heart of the Plateau.
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 base cost plus $25 cleaning. 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). 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 have a (email hidden) 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!

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 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, nightckubs, convenience and clothing stores.
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

Check-out before 11am, leave keys behind and lock door from inside, checking you have everything first.

Super séjour! L'appartement était propre et ne manquait de rien, super bien situé et au calme. David a été très conciliant sur notre heure d'arrivée et très réactif! Parfait séjour à Montréal :)
Très bon accueil; David, qui n'était pas disponible a notre heure d'arrivée, s'est arrangé pour la mise a disposition des clés. Appartement très sympa, propre, fonctionnel, et situé au coeur d'un quartier très sympa! Merci David!
David's place is perfect! The apartment is very spacious and we had everything we needed for our stay in Montreal. It was also in the perfect location, we could walk to most of the things we wanted to do. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.
We had a wonderful stay at David's apartment in Le Plateau and would stay there again. Highly recommended.
David's place was the perfect spot for our Montreal weekend!
He is a very quick and clear communicator. We arrived rather late so unfortunately did not get to meet but we maintained the right amount of contact throughout the weekend. The apartment is nicely decorated and very clean. David even had pastries for our arrival! The entire place was so comfortable and well stocked with everything you could need. It's like hotel convenience meets comfort of home. It's in a great location to get to wherever you want.
So many cooking supplies and toiletries!
We loved sitting out on the back patio for breakfast, and relaxing on the huge couch before bed. The fireplace in the bedroom is a lovely touch too.
We will certainly return to this gem of a place!
5 stars, (phone number hidden)%, A+++! Thank you David for hosting.
This was our first time using Airbnb and it wont be our last. Our stay at Davids place was wonderful. Within walking distance to everything we needed, our only wish is that we could have stayed longer.
This was our second visit to this location — and for us, the location is key. The apartment is steps from (website hidden). Laurent in the Mtl Plateau. Even better, though, David is a thoughtful host, and the apartment feels very much like home. We miss it already, and are eager for our booking. Thanks again, David.

About the Host, David
Bonjour et bienvenue! Je parle français aussi. A proud Montrealer for two decades, I love to show off our big-little island as much as I love travelling! I've worked at Airbnb itself, so I'm happy to provide you with tips as well.
I have a background in arts, culture and travel. I advocate eco and econo-sharing whenever possible, and I try to be the consummate host and make your stay welcomed and comfy. As a guest, I take really good care of others' Airbnb spaces (in fact I help other hosts stage and rent them!). I enjoy exploring a unique space, and seeing a city through the eyes of its locals.
