Danièle and Marc, both in our fifties; we work in Montreal and spend our week-ends at our country house.
Daniele and Marc were excellent hosts. Their place was immaculate, quaint, and perfectly located for our visit to Montreal for New Years. We easily traveled to Old Port and were also able to walk to several area restaurants and convenience stores (bakery, grocery, liquor, shops). The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were comfy. We also really enjoyed the view!
The outdoor party in Old Port on New Years Eve was excellent - cold, but a great time. FYI, Montreal doesn't really shovel their sidewalks after heavy snow. Bring snow boots if you're planning a visit in the winter!
wonderful - thank you ;)
It's hard to offer anything new, other than to confirm all of the positive reviews.
Juanito was extremely friendly and got us situated the moment we arrived.
The apartment was clean and well stocked, and having two bathrooms available was extremely convenient. WiFi allowed us to keep in touch without worrying about roaming data plans, and the bed was very comfortable.
The location was perfect for our needs. The bakery on the ground floor of the building makes pastries and coffee. There are restaurants and grocery stores (including liquor) less than a block away. Plus, you are a short walk to a nearby park and the metro.
We had a full itinerary for the weekend, but one of our fondest memories of the trip was looking out from the balcony while eating the croissants and drinking the coffee we procured from the bakery.
We will definitely be staying here again.
Excellent, clean apartment beautifully furnished with very considerate attention to detail for the clients! Very comfortable beds, prompt, professional in house service by Juanito, and handoff very quick and easy! We swam in the pool, had a sauna and fixed dinner for our kids and so enjoyed staying here! Nice neighborhood with a bakery you can visit without going outside, and a grocery store right outside the apartment!
Incredible view of the city at nighttime! We will definitely use Marc and Daniele's place again on our next visit!!
Great experience!the apartment is very conveniently located in a great neighborhood about 15 minutes away from the city center(by metro-it's just a couple blocks away).underground parking was a great plus!Juanito the janitor was very helpful making the check-in and out(and actually the whole stay) very helpful.The apartment itself is spacious,clean,well decorated and with great views.would definitely stay her again and would definitely recommend it to friends.Thank again Daniele!
My boyfriend and two friends had an amazing time staying in this apartment during our long weekend visit to Montreal. The apartment is well-situated and the view from the balcony is beautiful. There are a great selection of restaurants in the area, and we were a quick subway ride to downtown and Old Montreal.
The apartment was clean and nicely furnished. The best part was that every time we needed something (corkscrew, scissors, etc.) we were easily able to find it. This apartment is more intuitively outfitted than my own :)
With two washrooms, I definitely recommend this apartment for any couples visiting together. It made showering and getting out of the apartment to enjoy the city that much easier.
We were having great difficulty finding affordable accommodation in Montreal. Danielle and Marc's place was a great find. We were late in making the reservation and they went out of their way to ensure that we got the keys even though we were late arriving on the first night. The apartment was spotless and welcoming. We had a lovely time during our too short stay.
Our stay at Marc and Daniele's was great! The apartment was very comfortable and had a beautiful view. Everything thing was conveniently located in walking distance. Ex. grocery store, cafes, restaurants and transit. It was very clean, and well maintained. Juanito was very nice, and easy to correspond with in picking up the keys, he even helped with our bags. Having 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms was great, and worked perfectly for the 4 of us staying there. I would definitely recommend staying here. It was a memorable trip for us!
This was an excellent experience. Danièle and Marc (whom we did not meet except by email) were great friendly communicators, and the procedure for getting a rate, finding the place, getting the key from Juanito (very nice building super) etc was very clear. The apartment is in a wonderful part of Montreal (Monkland neighborhood), has two very comfortable bedrooms, living/dining room, kitchen, etc, and two full bathrooms. It is D and M's own home during the week, and thus has their personal stuff, but was not at all cluttered, bath and bed linens clean, fresh and good quality, and apartment generally very clean. We stayed their with our two kids, and it suited the needs of the four of us very well indeed. Much, much better than a hotel room, and good value.
As we drove in and street parking is quite hard, it was great to have an underground parking bay, and good Internet as part of the deal. Since it is on a busy corner it was nice to be above the bustle on 14th floor, and fairly quiet, also good views. Got a little warm in the afternoon (July) which could be managed with window AC.
Very much enjoyed the sushi from Mikado, the whole Monkland area with many shops and pâtisseries and friendly bustle and atmosphere, the jazz festival, old Montreal, etc. Even caught Wimbledon men's final on apt TV before we left. Everyone in Montreal seems to be so nice and friendly, not least our hosts.
We left the car in the garage and rode the Metro into old Montreal and to the jazz, and that was perhaps 15 minutes on the train plus about 5-10 minutes walk (little slower with kids). The apartment is not right in downtown, but with Metro very convenient to it.
When we come back to Montreal we'll try D & M first!
Marc and Danièle could not have been better or more accommodating hosts. We absolutely loved our time in Montreal, and it was a pleasure to stay in their beautiful apartment.
Everything you need is within walking distance—coffee, great restaurants, supermarket, Metro, bike sharing—really a wonderful area of the city. And the view from the balcony is marvelous!
Our flights were arriving late and leaving very early, so Marc generously overnighted the keys to us so we'd be all set upon arrival. Wonderful neighborhood, great people, and the apartment was charming and spotless—our only lament was that we couldn't stay longer :)
Thanks so much Marc and Danièle, we'd stay with you guys again any time!
Great guest welcom back anytime.
Daniele and Marc were lovely -- kept me posted when they were arriving a little later than planned, stripped the bed, left the apartment neat, said goodbye when they were leaving. I think they must know what makes a great guest -- as they are hosts themselves. I enjoyed meeting them. Recommended.
