Elise was a great host. The apartment itself was spotless, very well located and very quiet. It takes a few minutes to understand the on-street parking system but it is simple and although spaces are limited they are available. The area itself has lots to do. We walked to Wilfred Laurier Parc to swim, took the subway downtown for a movie and of course sampled many of the fine restaurants and cafes nearby.
Elise's apartment is in a great location and was very well maintained. It's very close to restaurants, parks, shops, and the Metro. The balconies were great for lounging on in the summer. Highly recommended!
Elise is a very gracious host and made sure to check in with us and ensure everything is ok. The bones of the apartment itself shows wear (cracked window, doors and drawers do not close easily). Given that though, Elise has furnished it tastefully. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. Elise went out of her way to make sure we had breakfast in the fridge. The location is also great, midway between Laurier and Mount Royal stations and a minute from a Bixi bike stop, and it's in a little hidden courtyard. We were able to find parking for our stay nearby, following the street signs.Elise left instruction notes in the apartment and gave suggestions for where to explore.
Elsie is an amazing host and the location of her house is excellent. Although we regret not having a chance to meet Elise in person, she had made arrangements for our arrival beforehand and was always ready to answer our queries as and when we asked . The place was neat and clean, and because it was raining when we reached we appreciate her leaving the umbrella for us. Such a calm home in a busy neighborhood is a traveler's dream. Would definitely recommend to others and stay again if we visit Montreal again.

This was the perfect apartment in a great part of the city. Elise was a wonderful host - very helpful and quick to respond to my questions. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Montreal!
Elise was an amazing host, even before we arrived! She provided advance info on what was nearby (restaurants, grocery stores, metro, etc.) And when we discovered we'd be one more last minute she came by with an extra towel.
Three of us fit very comfortably. As other reviewers mentioned she had helpful notes throughout her charming little apartment. Plus the welcome beers were indeed a nice touch!
The apartment is very well situated in Le Plateau. A fun neighbourhood with lots to see and do nearby, however the apartment itself is sweet and quiet. Overall it was a WONDERFUL first airbnb experience of us! Many thanks again, Elise!!!
I stayed @ this place for a few days. It was centrally located around everything!!! Literally, a few blocks away were the busy strips of St Laurent and St Denis, and yet Elise's place was so peaceful and quiet after a hard partied night. She was very accommodating, and I appreciated the beer that she left in the fridge. lol
My boyfriend and I traveled to Montreal for the Just for Laughs festival in July 2012. Elise was an INCREDIBLE host. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. She gave us so much info about Montreal, where to go, what to do. Made us feel very comfortable in her beautifully decorated home. She answered every question I had before the trip and even left us fresh towels and shampoo to use! The apartment is in the perfect area as well! Around tons of shops, restaurants, and bars. We were in heaven. Thank you Elise for making the trip so memorable.
Apartment is located in a beautiful section of Montreal. Elise had it all prepared for me with notes attached to this really cool Gumby.
The apartment was clean and the wireless worked fine which was good b/c it was my first jazzfest with a computer and i got lots of airbnb messages. lol
She even left me two welcome bieres!
