About MB Alaumary

We bought this house for our family to live here. Its myself, my husband, my 2 boys and 1 daughter. Now the kids are in their twenties and they moved out of the house to their own places, so we decided to move to a smaller condo apartment. We listed the house for sale however we did not get the price that we were looking for and we were not prepared to reduce the asking price as suggested by the listing agent, so we decided to offer this beautiful place for short term furnished rental.

MB Alaumary purchased this house in 2003

Why MB Alaumary chose Cartierville

We love the neighborhood, it is close to everything, yet away from the city traffic and noise. You can be in downtown Montreal in less than 20 minutes, or in Laval in 10 minutes or in central Montreal in 15 minutes.

What makes this house unique

We spend a lot of time during the spring and summer season in the backyard where we built a unique terrace area overlooking the river and the park. While we enjoy the winter next to the chimney and the warmth inside of the house. There is also one feature that is unique to this house and that is the great variety of exotic birds that visit the neighboring park during the spring and summer time, and stop often in our garden, plus do not be surprised if you get visited from time to time by a pair or ducks, male or female, to swim at the swimming pool.

Property is as advertized and great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We booked property for a large group and couldn't have been happier with the location and accommodations. We had no major issues during our stay. Mo was very prompt in answering questions prior to booking and nano made sure our stay was great and helped me locate things we needed when I couldn't find them. Great place for larger groups that want a little space.

Luxury 8 Bedroom Gem in Montreal

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for a 3 day weekend. The trip couldn't have been more perfect. We were a small group seeing off a friend before his marriage. The house way- exceeded our expectations. A superior luxury feel at the same time very practical.

Very spacious. Our group honestly only used about 60% of the home's space. Huge! Fantastic pool and BBQ Grill in the the backyard. Those two amenities alone made our stay that much better.

Location was great. Great quiet neighborhood next to a beautiful park loaded with families enjoying their picnics and walks along the water. Downtown was only 15-20 min drive. Our original plan was to be in the city, close to everything. And if I could do it all again, I would definitely do it just the way we did it.

The home, location, the friendly owner that made everything very accommodating- is just what you wish for when planning such a vacation.

A+ all around!

Perfect place!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place!! Perfect for a family or friends gathering. Everything was as advertised and the area was just beautiful. The pool was a bit green from the previous guests but not much owners could do about that I would assume. Overall, very happy with this house!

Spacious and quiet, but needing a little maintenance

  • 4 of 5

House is remarkably spacious and beautiful but lacking in ordinary maintenance. Some doors squeak (as in MBR), toilet paper holders broken or missing, barbecue grill did not get hot enough to grill steaks effectively due to lack of cleaning, jets in MBR jacuzzi didn't work, lower side sprays in MBR shower had no water pressure, swimming pool water was cloudy and murky, one stove burner doesn't work, main walking areas in yard are worn down to mud near grill & garbage cans & back gate, sheets on two beds on second floor were dirty and we had to change them before sleeping, some rooms had no curtains on windows, some tubs had no drain plugs, MBR shower has only sheer curtains allowing people on street to see in at night, no cable TV service in whole house. All these things could be fixed with minor expense but indicate lack of care for details that would normally be expected for this price of rental.

Positives: the house is amazingly spacious and our family of 10 aged 3 years to 68 years had a truly wonderful week there. Grandchildren loved the pool and spent hours in it. Neighborhood is very quiet and we all slept well every night. Owner responded immediately to every request we sent him during the week. He fixed everything we asked him about, but many of these things I mentioned above we just lived with for the week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I am glad that you enjoyed your family vacation and sorry any inconvenience. It was a very busy summer and we hardly had time to do our regular maintenance especially when most guests do not wish to be disturbed during their stay. We did fix the stove and the dish washer and added an ice maker and a second large fridge for drinks. We look forward to seeing you again in the future

Amazing Property with Lots of Potenial

  • 2 of 5

We were very excited about finding this home on VRBO. We take our family, 17 members, each year somewhere different. Everyone asked us why we chose Montreal and I would say because the house is amazing. As I stated in the title, it has potential but there are things that have been neglected. The air conditioner upstairs was broken the day we got there and was in the process of being repaired. It was working by the middle of the next day. We understand that things like that happen; however, the ice maker to the refrigerator was broken, one burner on the stove would not heat, and the detergent door to the dishwasher would not open. We were able to use the dishwasher by putting the detergent directly into the bottom of the dishwasher. Several of the beds did not have fresh sheets, so we purchased detergent and washed the entire time we were there. The bathmats were not clean, there were personal items left in drawers and closets that previous renters had left, and pieces of broken things lying around in various areas. There were partial bottles of left over shampoo and used bars of soap, but nothing fresh for us to use.

The children did enjoy the pool and the owner sent someone over twice to clean it, which we appreciated.

The formal living room and dining room where decorated with expensive crystal, satin table runners, etc. We made that area off limits to everyone because it was much to delicate for a family to use.

The day we left, the cleaning lady came over and asked if everything was OK. I tried to tell her about the broken items, but she did not speak English and I didn't speak French, so I was not able to communicate those things to her.

The location is nice, the pool and screened in porch are great for the kids, but overall, the condition of the home was a real disappointment.
