Great location, amazing apartment, fantastic host! Our stay at Fanie's place was just perfect! The apartment looks even better than on the pictures and it was absolutely spotless. Located in the heart of Plateau Mont-Royal, the house is close to so many nice restaurants and boutiques. Fanie was very kind and so helpful before and during our stay.
In short, if you're looking for a great spot and a great host, don't think twice, this is your place!
Appartement agréable avec du style, dans un très beau quartier à quelques minutes à pieds du parc Mont Royal!
The apartment is well-located -- near lots of shops and restaurants and in a quiet neighborhood. Spacious layout, uncluttered furnishings, a big bathroom and a nice back deck.
Unfortunately, the apartment was not cleaned properly -- coffee-maker full of old grinds; kitchen floor had food spills; dog/cat hair floating about and clinging to our clothes; deck chairs were dirty; animal doo-doo on the deck. The pet hair is a problem if you have allergies or asthma -- I became really congested at night and had difficulty sleeping; ended up sleeping on the living room sofa so as not to disturb my husband with all my wheezing and sneezing.
The street parking situation is fine if you know (which we didn't at first) that restrictions apply to one side of the street but not to the other. Guests need to park on the far side of the street or they will get ticketed overnight. The side of the street closest to the apartment has restricted parking (except for permit holders).
Aside from cleanliness issues, the apartment is pleasant and suitable for a couple or a family of four, including those with small children (no stairs or accessible breakables).
Fanie's apartment was charming and had everything we needed for our stay - great location, lots going on but peaceful at night.
