We had an absolutely lovely time on our trip to Montreal staying in Jaques’ apartment! He is a wonderful host, greeting us with cheer upon arrival, helping with directions in the area and croissants on our first morning! The apartment itself was absolutely perfect for our young family of 4; although Jaques was concerned about it not being childproof, my 4 and 2 1/2 year olds had no problems (they are fine with steps and past the "pulling wires" stage). The entryway and extra long hallway not pictured in the listing made it easy to store the double stroller by the door and strip down shoes and coats before coming in. There are wonderful curtains to keep in warmth and/or out light for perfect sleeping and lounging conditions throughout the stay.
We stayed for 6 days so my husband could attend a conference at the Palais de Congres without leaving us home in the US. The entire trip was a pleasure, the neighborhood wonderful and felt safe and entirely walkable, even with a double umbrella stroller. We took advantage of a beautiful handcrafted toys store around the corner as well as a perfect toddler playground on one of the beautiful-weather days. Restaurants and stores in the area are plenty and we never lacked for great food or things to do. While in the apartment, we enjoyed the fast wifi, did several loads of laundry, and generally relaxed quite a bit.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the area. The exposed brick walls and unique layout gave it a rustic feeling yet with beautiful hardwoods and all the modern amenities we needed as a family. I feel lucky we found it!
It was a pleasure meeting you.
That is also why airbnb exist !
Hope to see you again
Have a nice day and a lot of them
We stayed at Jacques' apartment over the Easter weekend, with another couple. The apartment was great, even nicer than it looks in the photos. It was spacious, very well equipped, very nicely decorated and the location was fantastic. Jacques was very welcoming and even found a parking spot for us. He went out of town for the weekend, but was easily reachable by e-mail. We would happily book Jacques' apartment again. Merci Jacques!
Jacques provided excellent instructions and was there to greet the first arrivals (we were two couples) and show them the ropes. The apartment was exactly as advertised and just what we'd hoped for. The neighborhood is pleasant and very convenient to all Montreal's important venues by foot or public transportation. And the price was extremely reasonable (given the current Canada/U.S. exchange rate!)
Jacques' place is perfect to (re)discover Montreal. We found the place absolutely clean and exactly as on the photos. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen fully equipped. Laval is a small one way street, quiet during the day and at night.
Jacques took excellent care of us during our ten day stay.
We enjoyed walking in the streets nearby, and tried many of the delicious restaurants Jacques had recommended, on Prince-Arthur, Saint-Denis, Duluth, Rachel.
We will certainly come back soon!
Merci beaucoup pour vos commentaires, suggestions et recommandations.
C’est très apprécié. En espérant vous revoir soit à Montréal ou San Francisco.
Très bon accueil, super appartement bien placé, bien équipé. Jacques est au petit soin, vous donne quelques bonnes adresses pour débuter, 3 min du métro, 3 min du Blv Saint Laurent! Au top!!! Je vous le recommande!!
The apartment was charming! Also very cozy, comfortable, well stocked, and extremely well located--a true home away from home. Jacques was out of town during our stay, but made certain that all the arrangements were handled in advance and was very prompt to respond to any of our question. We were able to walk to many great shops and restaurants in the Plateau neighborhood. Great place all around!
Un accueil chaleureux. Un logement bien équipé ou il ne manque rien. Vraiment agréable a vivre sur ces quelques jours passés . Très accessible du centre ville par le métro qui est tout proche. Une rue calme et jolie. Un bon espace de vie confortable .
Jacques was so friendly and communicative about check in and check out. He was there to show us the ins and outs of the place and even recommended some great Montreal spots to check out while wet were there.
The place is spacious, warm, well decorated, and in a beautiful neighbourhood. There is so much natural light in this place.
I look forward to staying in the same unit if it's available next time I'm in town, and highly recommend that others rent it.
Welcome anytime Bryan ;) a bientôt...
Fantastic. Jacques could not have been more helpful or hospitable. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Montreal
Jacques is the greatest host ever, and the apartment is REALLY fantastic. The location is perfect, just few minutes walking distance to both metro station and bus stop, and so many good restaurants are just at the corner. The room is well equipped, with everything needed. It's quite and comfortable. And Jacques is so nice, thoughtful and considerate! We definitely gonna miss him! I have to say, his place made our four-month exchange study so memorable! We will definitely go back if we get the chance.
Jacques was a nice and cheerful guest. I recommend him!
Jacques is my awesome neighbour who got me started on AirBNB myself! I have known him for many years now and we both share a love for classical music and our lovely city. He is a welcoming and generous host who gives attention to the small details that make you feel at home. His place is decorated tastefully and has the charm of many Plateau apartments. Your stay at Jacques' place will be comfortable and enjoyable!
I have worked with Jacques for over 10 years. He's an extremely generous person with a great love of nature and the finer things in life. He loves to laugh and always has a smile on his face!
