I'm a student in Montréal, offering my flat for a short term.
An ok apartment in a great location. Marine and Alexis are very nice and helpful, although I only briefly met Alexis. The good thing about the apartment is its relatively big kitchen and living room (which has a futon, so people can sleep in 2 separate rooms if necessary). Also, it is located right between Plateau Mont Royal and Mile End, the best parts of Montreal, with dozens of restaurants and cafes and cool shops in easy walking distance. However, although the apartment was "clean" (i.e. Alexis had cleaned it just before I arrived), it has not been well taken care of lately and is a bit funky. Also, the bathroom is tiny.
All in all, a good option if you need a base to explore Montreal.
Marine's apart is super-cute and tidy and has all the amenities you'd want while away from home. The location is absolutely perfect--it's a stone's throw from the Metro but we ended up walking most places. A definite recommend!
We had a lovely stay in this apartment. The location is unbeatable and the apartment was clean and adorable. While we were there, we had a little trouble getting in touch with Alexis (Marine's boyfriend) about checking out but ultimately just locked up and left behind the key and it worked out fine.
Marine had a cute apartment in a cute neighborhood - tons of amenities and great restaurants nearby, and close to 4 bixi stops (bike rentals!). The apartment was clean and comfortably furnished, and Marine was very flexible with timing. Neighbors were a bit noisy, though.
We had a great stay at Marine's place. Though she was out of town, her boyfriend facilitated getting us the keys despite our late evening arrival. The apartment was clean and cozy, centrally located to everything we needed. And her cat - an occasional visitor - was a wonderful bonus! I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice Plateau stay.
My parents and I had wonderful time at Marine smartly and ingeniously decorated flat. Very well located, close to subway( that we have barely used!).
This really is a charming apartment and perfectly located for exploring Montreal.
Marine’s place is a simply furnished flat but with a spacious bedroom. Its great location in Plateau Mont Royal was close to both Laurier and Mont Royal metro and Bixi stations. Organising keys etc was no problem and neither was the cat! I could hear the neighbours upstairs sometimes but overall good value for money and I really enjoyed my stay in the area. Thanks.
Our stay in the Plateau was rather lovely, and I really enjoyed our Montreal home. Prior to leaving for Montreal, Marine was excellent to communicate with, responded rapidly and always offered additional and useful information. Upon arrival I was rather pleased with the location of the flat, the cleanliness and the overall atmosphere. The owner's friend that was there to assist us was also very friendly and helpful. The flat has a lot of character, just the right amount of light, and a really lovely balcony. I loved eating breakfast and reading a book out on the balcony. The balcony also gave the place a European feel since it is part of a courtyard with neighboring balconies and every now and on some night people would sit outside playing instruments and singing. The flat had everything we needed such as wifi, sheets, towels, dishes, cutlery and cookware. They also have an adorable and friendly cat who visited us every morning and evening! My only complaint about the flat in general was that it could get a bit hot and stuffy. However, I also discovered that I hadn't opened the storm window in the front room, and the weather had cooled off a bit by this point! The location is fantastic! It is minutes away to the metro and is walking distance to some of my favorite areas of Montreal. I am vegan and was excited to be staying near a couple of vegan places including a cremerie that makes vegan ice cream! I was sorry to leave after only 1 week! If you want a genuine place to stay in Montreal, then I highly recommend this place :)
MOST LOVELY PLACE you could stay in for a Montreal encounter.
