I booked this apartment for my parents' stay in Montreal. They absolutely loved it. They found the apartment to be spacious, comfortable and in a great location. They are now hooked on airbnb!
Gaetan and Violaine were wonderful hosts and their apartment is even nicer in real life that it looks in their gorgeous photos. If you go, do not miss the sunset view from the roof!
I have lived in Montreal before, and my husband and I have visited since then several times. In my opinion you could not find a better location or nicer, quieter, cleaner spot for a getaway that makes you feel like a local.
My girlfriend and I had a *fantastic* time at Gaetan's apartment! Everything was perfect, and we spent the better part of an evening appreciating the various collages and mini art installations throughout the place.
I can't recommend their apartment enough; it made us sad to leave!
Gaetan and Violaine's apartment was an oasis of peace and calm for my partner and I and our nine month-old during our stay in Montreal's most vibrant and creative neighbourhood. They left us with great information on local vintage shops, art spaces, epiceries and restaurants, some basics in the fridge, and a smile. We would stay there again in a heartbeat, and recommend it to others wholeheartedly.
Gaetan and Violaine are so friendly. They left us fresh fruit and bread, and a list of their favourite places to go in the Mile End. And the apartment is beautiful!! Very clean, gorgeous furniture and design. We had serious house envy.
It was too cold for the roof terrace while we were there, but it has a great view of the mountain. The location is also perfect. This was my first time using airbnb and I feel totally spoiled. Would stay here again without hesitation. Thanks again G+V!
It's was our first experience with Airbnb. We had the idea to try it for a week end with a quite short notice and Gaetan was very comprehensive and helpfull trough the process of booking. Once at the appartment, everything was as shown on pictures : nice and original design and clean place. Notes and prints with "coups de coeur" restaurants, cafés and bars, boutiques, arts walking tour, must see of the neighborhood where waiting for us on the table. Fruits, coffe, we found everything for our first breakfast. A 5 stars experience for our fisrt time! We definitly recommand it.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Gaetan and Violaine's place for two nights and it was nothing short of amazing.
The apartment itself is beautiful and the decor is thoughtful, chic and inspiring. It was very clean with lots of light and space.
The area of Montreal is lively with plenty of trendy bars/restaurants close by and a short bus ride away from beautiful Mont Royal park. Gaetan and Violaine were also nice enough to leave a list of their favorite places to visit in the neighborhood as well as fresh fruit and bread. They also left us a small package of toiletries to use for the weekend, which was going above and beyond!!
Overall we couldn't have asked for anything more! Merci Gatean and Violaine!
What a pleasure it was to host Gaetan and his father ! He planned and booked well ahead; exchanges were super easy and friendly. Although we didn’t meet, you could tell by his tone and respectful manners, that he’s just a great fun person. We give him our highest recommendation as a guest (and we’re confident he’s just as great of a host as well).
Gaetan and family where great guest! Would love to host them all again.
