Entirely independant and private, charming, cozy & peaceful garden suite in wonderful Plateau Mont-Royal district. Part of a turn of the century three story house, it is accessed by a small garden of flowers and nestled away from street noise.
The suite is about 275 square feet in size with two windows opening in two different little gardens which are covered with flowers from the middle of May through October. It shares the garden entrance with another charming suite.
The house is located on leafy & peaceful Gilford street. It is walking steps to a wonderful selection of cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops of all kinds, bakeries, groceries, wine stores, two beautiful parks, bike paths, bixi bikes rentals and so on. Mont-Royal and Laurier metro stations are a few minutes away. Dowtonwn, China town, Old Montreal or Mile End distsricts are either a very interesting 30 minutes walk or a few metro stops.

A lovely little place with a comfy bed and very quiet. Robbie gave us his parking space which is rare in Le Plateau. Great location. You can leave your car parked the whole weekend and walk Le Plateau.
Robbie and Sylvie met us at the suite and were very chatty and helpful. The accommodation was bijou, decorated in the French style and very pretty. The bed was particularly comfortable, with good quality linens. Having the use of the washing machine and dryer plus the rooftop terrace for evening drinks was a plus. We found the location to be excellent, close to Metro station and the main shopping and dining area of Mont Royale. There was lots to do within walking distance- we walked to the Chalet Mont Royale- highly recommended for amazing views over Montreal and the river.
We loved our stay and wish we had longer. Thank you Robbie and Sylvie!
We can't say thank you enough to Sylvie for being so accommodating. The property is perfect in every way and the experience far better than at many hotels that are considerably more expensive.
The room we had was exceedingly spacious and had every convenience possible from coffee maker to washer and dryer. All were neatly stowed to preserve space and maintain the romantic cottage feel.
The decor is classic French country farmhouse or cottage in my opinion. It has that classic elegance without seeming twee or overdone.
The bed and linens were very comfortable and the location at the back of the house made for a very pleasant nights sleep.
The tourist areas of old town and the Latin quarter are within walking distance. We decided to take the metro a couple of stops as we'd be cycling and walking around those areas. The walk to the metro station takes you past several coffee shops and eateries that are great for breakfast. Les Folies and El Dorado stood out. The 24/7 poutine restaurant La banquise is also a few blocks away.
There is ample street parking nearby. Sylvie was kind enough to help us find a spot very closeby.
To sum it up, we can't wait to return.
Fantastic experience in Montreal, many thanks Sylvie & Robbie for your professionalism & hospitality at every step, and most of all for your clean, pristine, and very private hideaway in the Plateau.
Great place, great location! Awesome first experience using this app to find a place to stay :) I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone visiting Montreal that wants easy access to get around the city and yet a quiet place to sleep. :)
I had a very warm and personal welcome from Robbie with plenty of information about the area. The studio was tidy and private, with attention to detail and well-situated for shops and walking. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
The garden suite is extremely comfortable and exactely as per the description. The location on the Plateau is very convenient, close to several Bixi station and all the main parks, restaurants, bars, shops etc. Last but not least we could not imagine more friendly and welcoming hosts than Sylvie and Robie. We definetely plan to come back at their place for our next stop in Montreal!
This was a charming apartment with lots of privacy. The neighborhood was great, and it (and the room) were dog-friendly. Hosts were very friendly, responsive, and helpful as we navigated a new city.
April arrived in a positive and friendly mood and remained so throughout. They were able to explore the neighbourhood with their dog which was nice. The room was immaculate when they left and no sign of dog hair anywhere. They were a pleasure to host and woul be wilcome back anytime.
It was a terrific first experience using Airbnb. Sylvie and Robbie have probably set the bar high. Robbie was super attentive to getting us settled in and oriented to the neighbor both for the coming and going. The neighborhood is delightful, close enough to a vibrant downtown (but not too close), and close to the metro which we used the whole time. The metro is the way to go. Its straightforward, safe, clean and quick. The room was fresh and very comfortable - the heat nicely controllable. We look forward to staying there again in the future.
Sylvie and Robbie were very hospitable. The room was very clean and well equiped. Also the bed was very comfortable. The street is quiet. I enjoyed my stay very much.
