*** Please note: my lovely room is available this year but starting in May, there will be some construction noise from a neighbour's home 7am to 3pm, Monday to Friday. ***
I have a big, beautiful room for rent in my bright, tranquil Plateau apartment.
The apartment is situated in the heart of the neighbourhood on avenue Laval. This street is known for its fantastic central location and beautiful character homes.
About the neighbourhood -
The Plateau is the most desirable neighbourhood in Montreal. There are endless great restaurants to try and lovely shops to visit and the architecture is absolutely beautiful!
If you walk in any direction for 5 minutes or less from the apartment, you will find yourself on a wonderful street that has some of the best restaurants, cafes, bars & shops in the city. The location is also very ideal for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts being a 10-minute walk to the mountain and its adjacent parks.
Here are some things to do on/around the mountain:
• take a hike to the lookout or the Mont Royal Cross
• go for a jog up the mountain path
• enjoy the mountain bike paths (bikes can be rented a one-minute walk from the apartment)
• watch a live football/soccer game
• have a picnic (In the summer, there are always people picnicking in these parks day & night. You can even bring a bottle of wine; drinking in parks is allowed by law as long as you have food.)
• enjoy the Tam-Tam festival every Sunday
About the apartment -
It is the top floor of a triplex and features exposed brick in both bedrooms and the kitchen, hardwood floors, a sunroom with hammock, balcony, washer & dryer, dishwasher, a friendly cat and a quiet host. There is a view of the Mont Royal Cross from the sunroom and the roof is accessible from the front balcony (a great place for yoga or tanning!).
It is a pleasant ten minute walk to the Mont Royal or Sherbrooke metro stations on the orange line and it is easy to get here from the bus and train stations. It is also only one metro stop away from where the airport shuttle bus leaves you.
About the room -
It is large with a 12-foot exposed brick wall, self-controlled heating, a white flat screen tv with dvd/blue ray player and Netflix all to yourself, an alarm clock, plenty of space for your clothes, a full-length mirror, a beautiful old chest and a very comfortable double-sized memory foam futon. The street below your window is very quiet so you will never have trouble sleeping. A nearby basilica is visible from the window and the bells toll softly at noon and six.
Also in the room is a binder full of business cards from local restaurants, cafes, shops, banks, gyms, spas, etc. You can check out the 'guidebook' (click on the Maps tab above) for a comprehensive view of all these places.
NEW - I am now renting my couch to accomodate groups of 3. It is a 3-seater couch with a memory foam mattress and is located in the small office room next door to the room for rent. This room has a closet, a beautiful antique desk, a teak chair from Indonesia and a balcony with roof access.
I have been living in this wonderful city for 4 years and am more than willing to share whatever knowledge of it that I have. I'm happy to accomodate so please let me know if there is anything that I can do to make your stay more enjoyable!

Nous avons passe un excellent séjour a Montreal. Natalie est très sympa, serviable et elle a été aux petits soins pour nous. Corky est un chat tres attachant. L'appartement était propre et identique aux photos. La rue est tres calme et sécurisante.Nous recommandons fortement cet appartement.
Natalie was an absolutely amazing host--incredibly generous, knowledgeable, welcoming, and friendly. This was my first airbnb experience and it was an unbeatable first impression. She made me feel like a local for my short stay in Montreal.
Nathalie is a very nice host. The room is comfy, Nathalie has good recommendations for places and... I like corky the cat too!
Natalie and Corkey (the cat) were absolutely awesome hosts! Really knowledgeable of the local area and all of the things to see and do in the rest of Montréal. Her place is amazingly welcoming (clean, comfortable, nice and warm and positioned conveniently between two metro stops). The bed was really confortable too and a folder of local Info and Restaurants makes it easy to find your way around. Staying with Natalie’s was our first airBnB experience and it was amazing. Natalie’s respectful of your space, but also happy to sit down and have a chat too. If you’re heading to Montréal I would 100% recommend staying with Natalie, great place and an amazing host. Thanks Natalie :-D
Natalie was a doll! Finding her apartment and accessing entrance was a breeze. Her apartment is in fact located in the best neighborhood. Tons and tons of local shops and eateries right around the corner. You do not need a car if you are staying in the Plateau.
Upon arriving, there were chocolates and eye masks on each pillow, a super helpful guide that lists all of her recommended restaurants, bars, shopping, yoga, bike rentals etc etc.
Also, everything is so completely organized and labeled. Laundry is available within her apartment for $2 donation (nice after a couple weeks of traveling).
Last but not least, Natalie is a rad chick! Super respectful of your privacy but also very open and nice to talk to.
She has a super cute cat and a lint roller on hand to take care of any loose kitty hairs ;)
I would 100% recommend her apartment for anyone traveling to Montreal.
Natalie has a great host! Her apartment was adorable, her cat was adorable. Basically everything was adorable. She had great suggestions for places to go that were nearby. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Natalie was a wonderful host, very friendly and accomodating! Her place is very clean with lots of character, and located in a great neighbourhood (our favourite area in Montreal). We found the bed in our room to be very comfortable, we had a great sleep. Her cat Corky was also very nice :) We would definitely stay again!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Nathalie was a fantastic host, with great advice on what to do, where to go, where to eat - really made our Montreal
She has a great attention for detail, with little welcome gifts on the pillows when we arrived and homemade holiday cookies to nibble on throughout our stay!
The flat is a clean, bright, spacious 2 bed, on the last floor of a typical Plateau 3 storey house - great location.
I would highly recommend this place!
Natalie was an amazing host! She had all kinds of advice on places to go and things to do, and she even had a batch of cookies baking when we came home. She was so friendly and helpful and accommodating, and her apartment was absolutely gorgeous. The neighborhood was lovely and there were all sorts of things to do within walking distance. I loved staying at Natalie's place and I would highly recommend it.
Rester dans le magnifique appartement de Natalie pour plusieurs jours pendant le temps de Noël fut vraiment un moment magnifique. Natalie nous a merveilleusement bien accueillies chez elle, où l'on s'est instantanément senties chez nous. L'appartement est vraiment très joli et très bien entretenu. Le chat Corky est bien sympathique. L'emplacement sur le Plateau, entre la Rue St-Denis et le Bd St Laurent est vraiment idéal pour découvrir Montréal à (website hidden) recommande hautement l'offre de Natalie, qui fut sûrement l'une de mes meilleures expériences AirBnb !
