Bonjour/Hello!

I have a big, beautiful room for rent in my absolutely wonderful 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 enchanting.

If you walk in any direction for 5 minutes from this apartment, you will find yourself (email hidden)ly street that has some of the best restaurants, cafes, bars & shops that Montreal has to offer. 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 (both pictured above)
• go for a jog up the mountain path
• enjoy the mountain bike paths (bikes can be rented a one-minute walk from the apartment)
• sit and watch a football or soccer game
• suntan
• 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, spacious bathroom (shared with me), 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, tanning, reading or just gazing at the sky).

It is a safe and 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 and features self-controlled heating, a white flat screen tv with dvd/blue ray player and Netflix all to yourself, a comfy arm chair, an alarm clock, a dresser, a full-length mirror, a beautiful old chest and a very comfortable double-sized memory foam futon. 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 accommodate groups of 3. It is a 3-seater couch with a memory foam mattress added to it 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 5 years and am more than willing to share whatever knowledge of it I have. I'm happy to accommodate so please let me know if there is anything that I can do to make your stay more enjoyable!

  • Natalie's place was très chic and super cozy! My friend and I had a great time here! It's around a 10 minute walk to the metro, and once you hop the train on you can pretty much go anywhere! Natalie was attentive to our needs, yet respectful of our space. That being said, she is terrific fun to have around!

    If you're ever heading to Montréal, you'll want to stay here!

  • Natalie was the perfect host! As an employee of Airbnb, I can honestly say that Natalie fully embodies the idea of Airbnb, down to the last detail. She's there to offer you assistance at the apartment, or lend local recommendations, and is also just a joy to be around and chat with. The space is clean, comfortable, and cosy. Needless to say, highly recommended!! Thanks, Natalie!

    March 2014
  • Beautiful and comfortable room in a really nice apartment with a great host, situated in a nice neighbourhood within walking distance from most places!
    Natalie was really lovely. You can tell she really likes living in Montreal and wants you to enjoy the city as much as she does! She is very helpful and respectful.
    We would definitely stay with her again:) A definite recommendation!

    March 2014
  • Natalie is a friendly host. The plateau room and the complete apartment are beautiful. Our experience in Montreal was amazing. I recommend totally the place.

    March 2014
  • 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.

    February 2014
  • Nathalie is a very nice host. The room is comfy, Nathalie has good recommendations for places and... I like corky the cat too!

    February 2014
  • 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.
    Go Natalie!

    January 2014
  • 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!

    January 2014
  • 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!

About
I am from Ottawa and I've lived in beautiful Montreal for 5 years. I love nature, animals, the arts, travel and adventure. I work at a neurological facility and participate in theatre productions in my spare time. I'd like to think I'm both private and social in a good balance. I enjoy connecting and I also enjoy time to myself. I truly love being an airbnb host! Happy traveling, everyone!
