A unique apartment in a great neighborhood! Just a 5 minute walk from the orange and blue metro line (which can take you downtown and to the Old Port within 15-20 minutes) and a 10 minute walk from the famous Jean Talon market, my apartment is conveniently located in La Petite-Patrie on a residential street where you can usually find a parking spot somewhere on the block. There is also a Bixi stand on the corner which makes for a true urbanite experience if you decide to use this fabulous method of transportation.
The one bedroom apartment is of a modest size but is not to be underestimated. It is on the third and top floor of an old building and a typical Montreal spiraling staircase must be climbed before entering. There are two skylights which make for a very cheerful vibe during the day and many lamps and dimmers for a more romantic ambiance in the evening. The kitchen window overlooks the belltower of the beautiful Saint-Arsène church which I love to look at as I am having my morning tea.
I have a very comfortable queen size bed as well as a comfortable couch in the living room which can be set up as an extra sleeping space once the back pillows are removed (however as a previous guest mentioned, there is no privacy in the living room as it is connected to the kitchen and the hallway which is a common layout of old lengthwise Montreal dwellings). I also have a small sink in the bedroom (which I use all the time), in case you are thirsty for a glass of water during the night.
Without a doubt you will enjoy your stay in my home!
Thanks for looking!
Other Things to Note
Check in and out is flexible and can be arranged to suit your needs, however if there is another guest arriving on the day of your departure I would greatly appreciate to have the apartment back for 11 a.m. so that I can prepare it for the next guest.
PARKING: There is public parking (no permit needed!) on the street. However during the spring and summer be sure to read the signs as on one day of the week there is no parking for one hour on one of the sides.
