Montreal apartment description

Note to Guests: One of our goals is to help people in need. To accomplish this we give 10% of our proceeds to health foundations that provide support for those that are in need. Thanks to our guests, we are able to help provide a better future for women, children, and people of all ages.

Full Description:
A perfect place for travelers new and old to Montreal. I recently purchased this house for use as a second/summer home, but would love for others to experience Montreal at an inviting place when I'm not there. Before the purchase, the home was featured on the Canadian version of HGTV's 'Buy This House,' which showcases properties that have been updated or restored to upscale or historical standards.
I have tried to think of everything. It is not some cheap rental where the furniture wobbles and the furnishings are sparse.

This is 1280 sq ft of home, where you can stretch out and relax after a day of exploring the city, read a book in the separate office off the living room, cook a meal in the full-kitchen, enjoy sleeping on a king-size bed or entertain guests in the huge dining room area.

It's a home located in such a vibrant area of the Plateau, close to everything. I've rented from others while visiting Montreal for years and, hopefully, learned from others what to do AND what not to do. If you want to travel well and not worry about the little things, then consider this home.

I'm sorry I did not have a great wide-angle lens to make the property look as nice as it is. I've had many parties rent from me and almost every one of them has emailed or called to tell me what a wonderful time they had staying here.

The amenities that separate this home from others are:
--king size bed, walk-in closet, tv and dvd, dresser, night stands in the master bedroom
--queen bed in second bedroom
--full kitchen and large dining room that seats 8
--living room with attached office/library
--46' lcd tv with cable
--computer for surfing the internet
--wi-fi access
--sofa with pull-out double bed
--washer/dryer
--shampoo, toilet paper, paper towels, soap

It's a great place. It's close to everything the city has to offer. You will definitely not be disappointed.

                We just spent a long weekend here, exploring the city and visiting McGill. The apartment was perfect for our needs - close to everything, warm and cozy, thoughtfully furnished and equipped, and very comfortable for our family of 4. Loved being so close to St. Laurent and St. Denis restaurants and shops, and walking distance from McGill/downtown/old Montreal. Will definitely be back!

                perfect place. we've stayed on the plateau 3 times (plus six years in our own condo) and while we'd like to think our condo was pretty classy, this apartment may have been better. clean, efficient, attractive, warm, comfortable and nicely located. a big plus is that there is, from our point of view, a new and somewhat undiscovered amazing restaurant exactly 104 feet or 37 meters from the front door (Pintxo).

                Owner response: Thank you for the kind words. We are happy that you and your remaining party were able to enjoy the apartment and the beautiful city. We look forward to hosting you in the future.

                We were two couples on a mini vacation and the apartment was perfect. The rooms are separated and private which was nice. The kitchen is big and since we love to cook it was great to have a full kitchen. The dining room seated 6-8 people which was plenty for us and the living room was nice and cozy. We would definitely stay here again

                We heard that this apartment was a great place to stay from our friends so we decided to try it. We were very happy that we took their advise. The place was beautiful and the owners were very accommodating. We had great sleeps and enjoyed making dinners and having a glass of wine. We plan on coming back in the summer again and would recommend staying here.

                We loved the location of this place. It was close to so many great restaurants. Pintxo, Moishes, Maman Claf…. Something, Academie. We really enjoyed bringing our on wine to the restaurants. The apartment was very spacious and relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay and the convenience. It was interesting, we never felt lost, we felt close to everything. We are looking forward to our stay next year

                We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It was nice to have a home to come to and relax while in Montreal. The place was clean and welcoming. We try to use vrbo for our trips and found that this apartment was perfect for our trip to Montreal

                We arrived on Wednesday and had no problem gaining access since there is a convienient lockbox method by the owners. We weren't at the apartment much since we had so much to do, but it was so nice to come back at the end of the night and have a quiet comfortable home for the four of us. The only thing I wish we had were mirrors in the bedrooms (girls getting ready at the same time). Also the air conditioner wasn't working and the jets in the tub weren't either (although these were bonuses in my mind anyways!). Overall our stay was nice, the apartment is clean and well maintained.

                Staying at this apartment allows you to experience the local offerings of the Plateau and is so easy to get to downtown/Old Montreal. There are many shops and restaurants within walking distance. A real community spirit. The apartment itself is clean and well maintained. Would recommend.

                Owner response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We like to keep the apartment clean and well maintained for our guests; to keep it to a standard that we would enjoy while traveling. We want our guests to feel at home while adventuring through Montreal.

                We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It was steps from just about everything we wanted to do in the Plateau. The apartment was clean and comfortable (and warm). Elias and Abe were prompt in answering questions and had helpful tips for the area. Because of the great location, we discovered additional restaurants and points of interest that we might have otherwise missed or overlooked. We walked everywhere and occasionally used the Metro to get to farther away placess like the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (unexpected and interesting Napoleon exhibit, BTW). A few practical comments - things of note: - Try to find the local newspaper ("The Plateau"). There are usually free copies in many of the shops. You can find articles and ads of interest on the neighborhood. This is how we discovered the concerts given by the Conservatory of Music and Drama of Quebec. They are fun and inexpensive. - Although there is street parking, you must be very observant of the street signs to make sure you are not parking in a resident-only section. There isn't that much non-resident parking available, and there are specific days/times for street cleaning so you can't leave your car unattended for more than a few days at a time. We had to move our car a couple of times and had to circle a bit before we ended up finding a valid spot a few blocks away on the other side of St-Denis. We didn't drive otherwise. - The jacuzzi wasn't operational. It wasn't a big deal for us so we didn't pursue the question. Since the building is old, we speculate it may have been removed out of noise consideration for the neighbors. We really look forward to staying here during a future visit to Montreal.

                This apt exceeded our expectations. We have used VRBO several times and this was the nicest place we have stayed. The others were good but this was so comfortable we brought dinner in several nights. - Not only isthe apt large and comfortable, but it is very reasonable. And the location could not be better. This was our second time staying on the Plateau in Montreal and we will certainly stay again. The owners were wonderful- including not getting upset that I broke the key locking the door as we were leaving for the airport. They were amazingly gracious. I always wonder about these recommendations- but this is truly a fabulous place. The only drawback is the typical Montreal steep stairs into the apt. Only thing they could add would be a book for comments on restaurants, etc. Thanks for the wonderful visit!

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: My brother and I own this lovely apartment. We grew up in Calgary and did our graduate studies in Montreal. We both loved the city, architecture, culinary master pieces, and carefree lifestyle of the city. A European flare in a Canada. When we finished our studies we always knew that we would return to Montreal so we bought an apartment that felt like our home away from home. An apartment that was located central to the life that is Montreal.

              Why the Owner Chose Montreal:
              The apartment is centrally located to everything. The festivals, boutiques shopping, restaurants upon restaurants, parks, McGill University, metro stations and bus lines, bixi bikes (a bike system within the city), and a quick stop or walk to Old Montreal. We have a genuine bakery right near our apartment. I consider their croissants to be on of the best I have had. Open markets, coffee shops and terraces are everywhere. The apartment makes you feel like you are immersed in the Montreal lifestyle. These are some of the reasons we chose this apartment. That and the beautiful exposed brick, crown moldings, and old cast iron heaters.
