Fantastic property with a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being able to walk to everything in Old Montreal. Metro station is very close, only a couple of blocks. The apartment is so beautiful, with everything you need! The owner is very responsive to any need or question. I would rent this one again ! Montreal is a wonderful, clean, friendly city with so many great restaurants! Our favorite was Garde Manger!

Thank you Cherie for a perfect spot to explore the city!

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

This was, by far, the best VRBO place we have stayed in over 6 years of using the site. The owner thought of everything. The house is historic and a rare chance to see. My husband and I spent a romantic week here for our 10th anniversary, and everything was perfect. Can't recommend enough.

The apartment is so comfortable and beautifully appointment. One block from the old port, on a main street, and only a short walk from anything else you want to see. It was perfect for the two of us.
