A young professional who prefers to be playing music.
Everything was ready when we arrived, and we were able to move right in. David was very communicative, and we were able to contact him right away. The neighborhood is very diverse and full of families...lots of great parks, playgrounds, waterspray parks, and free pool nearby. Good parking and convenient to bus and metro. Close by the Jean Talon market and good coffee bars and restaurants.
Very pleased with our stay at David's apartment. It was just right for our needs being that it was five minutes from the Stade Uniprix for the Rogers Cup tennis tournament.
Even though we never met in person, David was very welcoming and did a great job communicating. Location is great if you are attending the Rogers Cup, as you can walk there in minutes.
However, loose garbage in the neighbourhood was an eyesore and got on my nerves to the point I left a night early. But then again, I am a solid waste consultant and maybe I am more in tune with it. Discarded garbage left by others is totally beyond David's control, but keep this in mind if you decide to book.
Myself and my friends stayed at David's apartment for five days for a musical festival held in Montreal. We had an incredible experience with the apartment, as it had enough rooms for everyone and was located conveniently close to a metro and bus station (about a 7-10 minute walk). David was a very gracious host - we could contact him easily through email and phone, and he provided towels and blankets for extra guests. He even left a bottle of wine for all of us to enjoy when we arrived, which was very much appreciated!
The apartment itself had a great atmosphere, with large open windows and two balconies that we made good use of. David also had wifi and TV available.
The only thing to watch out for is that the walls of the apartment are very thin and there are families next door. If you are planning on coming back late or making noise, or are simply light sleepers, this is something to watch out for.
Overall all of us loved the stay at David's house and would recommend for anyone to stay here as well. If we come back to Montreal in the future, we know exactly where we'll be living! :)
Nous avons été bien accueilli par David. Il a toujours répondu à nos sollicitations. L'appartement est bien agencé et prêt d'un arrêt de qui mène au centre.
I stayed here with my 4 kids for 1 week. The neighbourhood is very alive and interesting with splash park, pool, library and playground all within a block or 2. A great multicultural experience of city life without being downtown. Never felt unsafe and parking was not usually too hard to find.
Our hosts were always quick to respond to messages and went the extra mile waiting for me to find the way to the apartment and I highly recommend them.
Maybe because I had the kids with me I was a bit more fussy about cleanliness and I should have asked for more specific detail, because the listing was transparent: "home clean, not hotel clean". Home clean varies and it is hard to make an older place sanitary. Fair enough. This would not bother you if you were used to travelling widely and were not travelling with children. The basics were relatively clean.
Beautiful sunny mornings!
Nice cozy apartment. Great location. I had my car and was able to reach everything I wanted to do in twenty. The host (David) was always available to answer any questions I had.
David was a great host, he welcomed us when we arrived and took the time to show us the place and explain how everything worked. He even went above and beyond by having a bottle of wine for us. Would definitely recommend his place for those looking for a place in Montreal. It is a little bit outside of downtown Montreal, but the metro is a short walk away and easy to navigate. Thanks again David!
We had a wonderful stay here. The apartment was exactly as described, it was clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. We didn't get to meet our host, but he left easy instructions on how to get the keys, and left us a nice bottle of wine for our arrival. well located, and an easy walk to the metro from here. David was fantastic and checked in periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. The personal touch was very nice.
Super accueil, quartier tranquille, très bel appartement et très bien situé accès rapide à tous les commerces, aux transports en commun et au centre-ville.
Very nice couple!
Des gens vraiment charmants! Ils ont partagé notre repas et nous avons passé des moments super agréables!
Dave is my big bro. He has lived all over the world and throughout my life I have taken advantage of that, always going and visiting him. He has always been so accommodating going out of his way to make sure that we had a good time. I remember one time Dave even gave me his bed to sleep on. What a gentleman!! Dave is a great. Stay with Dave
