Ian was an excellent host and very easy to coordinate with. A friend and I were in Montreal for the Osheaga Music Festival and this apartment was a perfect place to come home and relax in. The place looks just like the pictures and was very clean. Furthermore, Ian was flexible about check-in/check-out times, provided croissants and strawberries for our first breakfast, and even had a drink with us upon arrival. The location of the apartment was very convenient and easy to access subways or cab downtown. Very helpful and friendly host, I would highly recommend staying here.
Ian was a great host, very welcoming and informative. Ian provided us with lots of helpful advice which enabled us to make the most of our short stay in Montreal. His condo was as pictured (cool! :), very clean and well-appointed and the bathroom was amazing. We really enjoyed our stay at Ian's place and hope to be back some time in the future. Thanks Ian for a fantastic stay in Montreal!
Before meeting Ian I had communicated with him via the Airbnb e-mail system; I was amazed at his detailed responses to my every question and concern. He genuinely takes an interest in ensuring that this guests have a happy stay - which I most definitely did! Ian even checked in with me my first night to ask if all was well and if I had any questions.
The apartment was clean and tidy with a bus stop a few feet away. There are several grocery stores also within walking distance. The accommodation was very comfortable, with all that one would need.
This was my first time using such a service, which proved to be a very pleasant experience. Ian really is a genuine and considerate individual. I would never hesitate in recommending him as a host!
Wonderful apartment in Montreal with amazingly helpful host - Ian. We stayed in Ian's apartment for a month. Walking distance to city and all attractions. Quiet location with good transport and 5 minutes walk to restaurants and shops in Mount Royal Avenue. Great food and cheap fresh fruit. Building new, apartment good size with full kitchen and luxury bathroom. Very clean and pleasant - we stay in mid of winter and temperature was perfect inside apartment. Really - just the perfect place to explore Montreal and have a relaxed holiday. Ian was very accommodating and gave us great guide about Montreal and area. If you can book Ian's place don't hesitate a second. Thanks a lot, Ian.
Ian's apartment is great! We spent an entire month there and were sad to go. The location is very convenient and we took advantage of a lot of free parking in the area as well as the very near bus stop. Ian's kitchen is more than well prepared, the bath room is very luxurious and rest of the apartment is cozy and extremely clean. Ian was very accommodating and made the whole experience comfortable and inviting for us.
A friend and I stayed at Ian's condo while in Montreal for a much needed weekend of fun at the color me rad 5K. Along with being the "cool new modern" condo of its title, the space is immaculately clean, completely comfortable, and felt like a true home away from home. Ian's place is conveniently located to bixi stations (which we absolutely adored), as well as cafes and bars on Mont Royal, Saint Denis, and other notable "rues" (French for street, I think). Ian is a very attentive host. He's also easy to communicate with and exceptionally creative: he left us a scavenger hunt like booklet filled with fun things to do and see while visiting. I recommend Ian and his apartment to those who will appreciate a snug, effortless experience... and who will respect the condo, as it is so nice!
Ian's place is amazing, and he is a fantastic host. As soon as we walked in we noticed a little fruit basket which was really appreciated because it was late at night and we were starving. He is really accommodating and super easy to work with. His place is incredibly clean and his location is close to just about everything you would want to do or see. Also, there are places to get food, and drinks within walking distance. His condo is cozy and you'll immediately feel right at home. And his rooftop deck is great in the evenings to have a beer and watch the sun set over the city. When we come back to Montreal (hopefully soon) we will be contacting Ian first, without a doubt!
Two friends and I rented this condo for six days surrounding the Osheaga weekend in order to visit the festival and explore the city. This was the first time we decided to rent a condo because hotels were rather expensive during this time. After our experience at Ian's condo, I suspect that I won't be staying at a hotel if I ever return to Montreal.
The location of this condo is fantastic. It is very close to the Plateau, where most of the restaurants and bars we wanted to visit were located, and Downtown was just a very quick metro ride away. Lastly, the condo is very close to Lac Lafontanie park. This made the walks to and from the apartment very enjoyable.
It is also a very cool condo. I instantly grew envious of Ian when I stepped inside. High ceilings, modern furniture, hard-wood flooring, plenty of space, and a spectacular bathroom (the kind you see in a home-design magazine) are just some of the many excellent features.
Lastly, Ian has been a wonderful host. He was very accommodating of our check-in and check-out times despite our very delayed arrival times. He prepared a booklet full of recommendations of places to visit, things to see and foods to eat. The ones we checked out were all very good.
Overall, our experience with Ian and his condo have been very positive. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable, chic and central condo, then Ian is your man.
Ian's condo is exactly as advertised: cool, clean and modern. The apartment has everything you need to feel at home including a comfortable bed, clean towels and wi-fi. Check-in and check-out was quick and easy. Thanks for everything Ian!
Renting from Ian was a smooth process. His apartment was in perfect condition, modern and well organized. Thanks again!
Really nice and easy going guest who I got to hang out with a good bit. Would happily recommend him to any host :)
Ian has been an great guest. Communication before and after his stay was easy, and he and his friends left the cabin in great shape for us to return to. Welcome back next summer, Ian, when you can take advantage of the beaches!
Ian was a great guests, polite, respectful and clean. I would recommend him highly to anyone and he is always welcome.
thank you for your wonderful review.
I don't merit so much...
You were sick, tired, without energy.
And I had at home medicines
for your cough and your bronchitis.
You are a very kind and polite guy.
Clean and tidy.
It was pleasant chatting in the evening about Rome ...
I hope you'll come back soon to see me.
Ian, is a responsible and organized guy. Either renting from or to I'm sure he would be more than accommodating/clean...and all that other good stuff! No douchbag gurantee!
I've travelled with and stayed with Ian on a number of occasions since 2010; he is a fantastic host and travel buddy. As a host, he is knowledgeable about the city and very clean. His Montreal-born friends joke that he knows the city better than them as he seems to be the first to know about interesting photo exhibits/shows/events or tucked away bars/cafes around the city! As for his traveling style, Ian is well organized, courteous, curious about other cultures and always up for discussing big ideas. I highly recommend Ian to other Airbnb-ers as both a guest or host.
