I am a 49 yrs old male Professional who speak English & French and has decided to open up my house to others. In Feb 2011 I used AIRBNB to book my trip to Spain it was amazing so i have decided to try it out.
I am pretty easy going and enjoy travelling. I have another house 1 hr from Montreal where i typically go on weekend to relax. When im in the city, I typically meet friends most nights at a cafe to get together and chat and hangout. I do own a management company in Florida and I have been renting property in the US now for 24 yrs so I do understand that when having visitors it is important to be understanding, flexible and welcoming.
And yup, I know, the pictures are pretty bad. Laugh I used my Cam in my office. Oh well. Have a (email hidden), they are AirBNB Verified, which means that AirBNB actually came and took the pictures / verified what im renting is true and posted them on my site. After looking at the quality of my pictures, I'm sure you will agree that having AirBNB take them is a definite Plus. (Laugh)
Feel free to browse the comments from my past visitors and also I have asked some friends to post some of their comments. I think my friends were too kind and embelished a bit but I will leave that for you to decide in your review of the accommodations after you have left.
Whether you decide to stay with me or anyone else, you will find Montreal has Old World charm, not like any other city in North America. People are under the impression that we only speak French, this is not the case typically most people will speak english to you or will try. Montreal is filled with amazing restaurant and host cultures from many countries (The food is amazing) . I am sure you will enjoy your visit.
