loves travel, food, film and art. enjoy conversations, friends and are very laid back.
Place is in good location steps alway from the Berry uquan metro station.
Mat was a terrific host! Very nice place and a large, private room. He is also great company should you need to hang around for a bit before going to the thing you need to go to! Very nice experience.
Mat was a graceful host and as other reviews have stated, he is an artist, through and through. We made a last-minute reservation however, Mat clearly made an effort to clean the apartment before our arrival. The apartment is darker than it appears in the pictures and there is a residual smell of smoke—as non-smokers, my wife and I had trouble with this. We booked for two nights but left after one because of this. Overall, Mat is very nice and very hospitable. Perhaps if he had more time, the place would have been cleaner and smokeless-smelling.
Cassandra and Mat have a super cool artist's loft on the top floor of a shabby chic older building. It's the kind of place you walk into and go "Cool!" Lots of great art and decor. The bedroom was small but comfortable and quiet, and had the added bonus of an enclosed roof deck right outside the sliding door. Cassandra and Mat were great hosts, working around my last-minute schedule and accommodating a photo shoot in their front room. And when I forgot my toiletry bag at their place, Mat even drove downtown to drop it off to me. Awesome. Would be happy to stay there again. The apartment is in the heart of the gay village, which has a gritty urban edge that I'm fine with. But if you're looking for a more clean and mainstream neighborhood maybe try downtown instead.
Un très bel accueil dans un appartement magnifique très bien situé dans le village (plein centre de Montréal). Mathieu et Cassandra sont des hôtes formidables et accueillants. Ils étaient avec nous lors de notre venue chez eux. Nous avons passé une soirée très agréable. Bonne musique, beaux tableaux et belles discussions... Merci pour tout à eux!
Je les recommande chaleureusement .
We had an awesome stay at Cassandra and Mat's. We stayed for a weekend having the whole place to ourselves because they ended up going on a vacation of their own. Cassandra arranged to meet us first made sure we were settled in. The place is exactly as shown in pictures. With all the great art and all. We asked for recommendations for dinner places and the two places we tried were amazing. This place is perfect for location. Cassandra warned us of a neighbour's party that weekend that it would be loud, but offered her own room in case it was too loud. This place is highly recommended
Mat and Cass were great hosts. They were friendly and the place was perfect - the location, the cleanliness, the hospitality. I left my keys in my room one day and they were kind to wait for me to get home and throw them down to me. I had a fun time in Montreal and they helped me feel welcome.
Cassendra and Mat were great hosts, they even waited up till midnight when my flight got delayed and welcomed me to make myself at home. Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location, very short walking distance from central station and not too far from old port.
Cassandra and Matt where great hosts, very easy going and shared their space with me in a very relaxed and friendly manner. The apartment is very eclectic and "French" their love of art and expressing themselves was so evident and made for a real "Montreal" experience. I hope to see Matt and Cassandra again sooner rather than later. j
This was my first time using airbnb – and I can't wait till next time! Cassandra & Mat were über-friendly, extraordinarily helpful and easy to get along with. It's too bad I was only there for two days!
The apartment was clean, easy to find and located near many interesting places to visit, as well as bus & metro stations – great for people like me who aren't renting a car.
The room was very peaceful, well-equipped, very welcoming and with direct access to the patio/roof – awesome! I felt right at home...
One word of caution: you mustn't be allergic to art ;) the place is loaded... :)
Thanks guys, it was great! Hope to see you again.
Cassandra and Matt - thank you so much for being so appreciative and respectfull of our little cottage ecosystem! You are welcome back any time to explore the property in other seasons, for picking mushrooms or snowshoeing along the river. - Anja
Encantados de recibirlos en Uruguay, son muy amables y tranquilos.
Fue un gusto hospedarlos
Totalmente recomendables !!!
This apartment couldn't be in a better location. You can walk EVERYWHERE and have access to the 747 bus (2 blocks away), the hub of the subway station and more. You can definitely walk to all of the festivals. Cassandra and her partner are artists, so their place is very funky and artsy...but big and clean at the same time. Highly recommended.
