Beautiful 200 square foot room with a private balcony, located in a classic apartment in the Mile End. We are one block from St. Laurent and a great selection of restaurants and bars, Montreal classics, and a fifteen-minute walk from Mount Royal Park. You will have access to the entire apartment, including kitchen (with simple breakfast foods and coffee/tea provided), laundry facilities and an enormous terrace. Enjoy your trip solo, or hang out with your hosts - we'd love to chat.
The apartment is on the corner of two bike routes in the Mile End/Plateau. Both residential and central, the building itself is classic Mile End architecture with an exposed brick living room, high ceilings, wooden mouldings, a fully-equipped kitchen, and large rooftop terrace. There are three bedrooms total - the other two are occupied by your hosts. Your bedroom is large and bright, with a private balcony, double bed, large desk and chair, standing fan, and chest of drawers.
We have a kitten named Charlie - he is friendly and well-behaved.
We are minutes away from hundreds of bars, restaurants, cafes, music venues, and boutiques on St. Laurent, St. Denis and Ave du Parc. Within fifteen minutes you can walk to Mount Royal Park, Jeanne-Mance Park, the famous Schwartz Deli or Fairmount Bagel, and within half an hour you can be in downtown Montreal or Place des Arts. We are a one-minute walk from several major bus routes, and a ten-minute walk from the metro. We recommend trying out the Bixi bike sharing system as well.
One of our favourite features of this home is the huge open terrace connected with the kitchen. You are more than welcome to use it, as well as the stove, refrigerator, and any kitchen equipment you might need, though we do ask you clean up after you cook. There is a major grocery store (Provigo) nearby, as well as organic grocery stores and convenience stores. Our washer and dryer are available if you need to do laundry.
For breakfast, we provide the basics - coffee, tea, and cereals - and suggest that you enjoy it on your private balcony!
We do not permit large parties or events, but feel free to invite a friend or two back for a drink on the terrace. Overnight guests require advance notice and an additional fee. Smoking is permitted on the terrace and balcony.
Accessibility: second floor walk-up, one cat.
Interaction with guests
Jenn is a full-time lab technician in genetics at McGill, and her schedule is 9-5, Monday to Friday.
Jess is a full-time student at McGill and works as a remote programmer during the summers. She will have quite a variable schedule.
We are both friendly, enjoy good conversation, and are easy to get in touch with via phone, your preferred chat application, or email, should you have any troubles or questions during your stay.
We are both well-travelled and enjoy meeting new people. We would love to hear about your own journey and collected stories, and help you discover Montreal.
Other things to note
Reality check: We love our home, but please be aware that this is an older building, and you will be sharing the apartment two full-time residents and one small cat. It's not a five-star hotel! There will also be some traffic noise.
Smoking permitted on balconies (not indoors)
