Overview

Photos and Description of this Montreal holiday apartment

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautifully renovated apartment, fully equipped. Completely new: washer, dryer, fridge, stove, micro-wave, kitchenware, bed, linens, fold-out couch, flat-screen television, everything. Bathroom includes clawed-foot tub. The 30 square meter terrace with it's barbeque is a good place to spend time so you can have a feel of the neighborhood.

This apartment is located near the Atwater market, one minute away from the Lachine canal, which is the highway of choice for whoever doesn't travel by car. Within 2 kilometers of the apartment, all on the canal, you can rent a bike, a pedal boat, a kayak, an electric boat, you can ride in a dragon boat, and in the winter, you can even walk, ice skate and snowshoe on the canal.

You get the best of both worlds by being in this small urban borough mere minutes away from action packed Downtown. A seven minute walk takes you to the Place St-Henri metro, so you can be downtown within 10 minutes, to get to the busiest part of our city, where shops, restaurants and clubs are waiting for you to discover them.

About Nicolas

Trying to take care of my surroundings, I've been upgrading this property since it's acquisition, implementing solar panels to heat the hot water, radiant flooring system, rain water recuperation, and building and driving my electric car.

Nicolas purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Nicolas chose Montreal

Location, location....

What makes this apartment unique

This is a quiet neighborhood where it's nice to spend time on the terrace. Being partly among the trees, you forget how close to downtown you really are. If you like the outdoors, we've got the biggest playground just a minute away: The lachine Canal and it's bike path.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"it felt like home away from home. the landlord is very friendly and helpful. the furniture and the kitchen were great. located somewhat away from downtown, metro station within 10 min walking distance. we really enjoyed our stay."

Very Clean, Safe, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a basic, clean, comfortable apartment convenient to the metro. We stayed here 4 nights and cooked in the well-equipped kitchen two nights. We were a little wary of the neighborhood at first but actually found it to be quite safe to the point that one of our party (a woman) felt comfortable walking home from the metro at night alone! Yes, you do see women walking around at night alone in this neighborhood quite a lot! Owner is very nice, lives nearby and was very responsive to all our needs. Loved the nice deck out back. Negatives: Sofa in living room was not terribly comfortable. Also smoke alarm in kitchen will go off if you have any little bit of kitchen cooking smoke at all. Use kitchen exhaust fan at all times! All in all it was a great place to stay and we would definitely stay there again.

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this city and place! We are a couple traveling from NYC and the drive up was breath-taking and easy--would highly encourage driving if you can! This spot was in an ideal location. I was able to park without problem on the streets for free! We were only a ten minute walk from the subway and 5 minute walk from the bus stop that shoots down Notre Dame. In the opposite direction, 1 block over, was the canal and a great running/biking path that we used every morning. I especially enjoyed that Atwater Market was also a 10-15 minute walk away--it had everything from fresh bread to flowers to AMAZING meat that you can bring back to the apartment and grill on the outdoor patio. Get there early in the morning because it gets crowded and has bread fresh out of the oven. The line can get long but it moves!

Besides location, we adored the apartment. Nicolas, the owner, was very helpful and friendly! Apartment is exactly as pictured. Loved the the outdoor space and the full kitchen. I saw a previous review mentioned the area looked a little shady but we didn't get that feeling--but that also may be because we live in a city :) The neighbors are very friendly and I didn't feel unsafe parking my little Honda next to the BMWs and other fancy cars. He had a binder of what's around and pamphlets all about Montreal. My favorite part was this notebook he kept on the table that was completely filled with previous guests' entries thanking Nicolas and giving advice to future guests.

Enjoyed our first trip to Montreal so much we are coming back in June! Thanks Nicolas!

wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5

lovely apartment in a key location -- easy to get around and not too gentrified but not too bohemian. The patio and grill and the fresh tomatoes and herbs made a night at home perfect. Would definitely rent again.

Super Clean Apartment with a Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

Nicolas was wonderful to work with. Honestly coming from Chicago, the look of the neighborhood made us a little uneasy at first but Nicolas reassured us and he was right. This is a wonderful, vibrant neighborhood. We loved being part of a neighborhood as opposed to staying downtown. We walked/ran/biked on the canal daily and shopped at the Atwater Market. We even rented Bixis and biked downtown. What a great location. The apartment was super clean and very comfy. It had a great layout and all of the comforts of home. I would highly recommend this as your Montreal "home base."

Wonderful Stay in Montreal

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two sons (9,12 y.o.) and I stayed at the apartment in early September. The place was easy to find. The location worked out perfect for us. The bike path was just a block from our door and tennis courts around the corner. This is so close to the city by bike, metro or car, very convenient. We drove our van and easily found parking on the street right in front of the apartment. I like to cook all our meals on vacation and the kitchen was great. Every utensil I needed was in the kitchen. My boys were comfortable on the futon and all the bedding you needed was in the closet. Great water pressure in the shower! I always like that. Having a washer and dryer helped so we didn't need to bring as many clothes. Plus the laundry was very new and highly efficient. Nicholas was very helpful and always available for any questions we had regarding the area. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. Thanks to Nicholas and VRBO we had a outstanding and affordable stay in Montreal.

This is a delightful rental with a very accomodating host in a wonderful location. We used the deck terrace for evening cocktails and appetizers that we had gotten at the Atwater market and marveled at the delightful neighborhood we were staying in.

We were very close to the Lachine canal bike trail and it was a great to ride our bikes on it. While we did have to bring our bikes up a flight of stairs, it worked well with 2 people for each bike.

Perhaps most importantly, Nicolas allowed us to check in early when his previous guests left early because of complications from a hurricane hitting their town. This gave us additional time to explore Montreal, by bike, as we wanted to do. He was very helpful with suggestions on places to see and eat.

Also helpful was the washer and dryer, along with the laundry soap, so we didn't have to buy any. The place was delightfully appointed with a great TV and WiFi. We were able to bring in a double aero bed for one of us and Nicolas thoughtfully provided the linens.

We would definitely stay here again - especially since it gave us what we wanted: a very clean rental, a very helpful host and in the middle of a Montreal neighborhood so we could experience true Montreal city living.
