The 'Best' Vacation home and location in Montreal
The 'Best' Vacation home and location in Montreal
We have rented several vacation homes over the years and this home in the Plateau area of Montreal is one of the finest we have lived in. First of all the house itself is incredible with the three nice bedrooms on the top floor, complemented by a fourth bed in the basement. Two of the bedrooms share an adjoining bathroom, which some may find bothersome, plus there is another huge main bathroom on the top floor for bedroom #3. The main floor living space is so comfortable with a nice living room and dining room that comfortably seats 8 people. The greatest feature of the main floor is the gourmet kitchen which is what sold us on this rental. The amazing thing is the VRBO photos do not do it justice; it is better and bigger than what you see in the photos!! The quality of the appliances and the huge selection of kitchen tools, glasses and dry goods are (almost) better than my own kitchen (almost). The only thing missing was an espresso machine; thankfully Cafe Laval (Laval and Rachel) is nearby and makes a perfect latte, Americano or espresso. This home has set the highest standard for vacation home kitchens. Secondly the location of this beautiful home is perfect. Rue Laval is one of the most beautiful tree lined streets in the Plateau area. Laval is located between St Denis and St Laurent, two great streets with a huge selection of restaurants, shopping and cafes. Right in the neighborhood (within 2 blocks in any direction) are a huge selection of corner stores (depanneurs), cafes, and restaurants. Some of our favourites include: Schwartz Deli, Cafe Laval, Au Pied de Cochon, l'Express, SAQ on St Denis, Chez Jose, Romados, Pintxo, this list goes on!! For getting around town we have never rented a car in Montreal and always use the excellent transit system. The house is located between the Sherbrooke and Mont-Royal Metro (subway) stations which can move you around the city in a very short time for a very reasonable cost. The system is clean and safe, although all of the public announcements are in French. Our final suggestions for the owners are: 1) Name the house. We have rented villas in the Caribbean in the past and it is nice to refer to your vacation home by name (Belle Coco and La Batterie were two of our favourites in St Lucia) 2) Adjust the weekly rental rate between the original rate from early 2012 and the current rate which is just a bit too rich. Enjoy your stay in this lovely vacation home in Montreal, we sure did!

This beautifully appointed home in the center of the action in Montreal is everything our family (children ages 5, 15, 17) could have asked for. We were in town for vacation and for our oldest to visit McGill University. The home had a beautiful, large chef's kitchen with all the amenities, where we cooked a number of meals. The spacious bedrooms had extremely comfortable beds, ample closet space and dressers and nice linens. The master bath on the second floor was complete with two sinks, a fabulous hot shower with multiple shower heads and a large jacuzzi bath. There were three more bathrooms in the house, so no waiting in line. The living room was very comfortable with a large screen t.v. from which we watched highlights of the olympics. And, if one is looking for it, there was a lovely formal dining room. I was particularly impressed by all the niceties. There was nothing lacking, except perhaps an espresso machine to which we are partial. But the coffee maker was a style that made dark strong coffee to our satisfaction. We have stayed in VRBO homes from NY to Ireland, Colorado and the Green Mountains to Italy. This was among the top two we've experienced. Our thanks to lovely Dasha, who met us and took us through the house carefully explaining everything and inviting us to make ourselves at home. Although we didn't use them because it was very hot during out stay, there are also two very lovely outside spaces. As for the neighborhood, we walked from the house to nearly everywhere: Mount Royal, McGill, downtown to old Montreal... And the restaurants and pastry shops... really limitless choices right out the door. We will definitely stay here on return to this great city.
