Om dette opslag
Our property is located steps from quaint Monkland Village, with its multitude of restaurants, sidewalk cafes, boutiques and shops. This area is the perfect place to stay due to its range of broad avenues bordered with old growth trees. Charming co-props, duplexes, condos, and older styled houses from the 1910s - 1930s are abundant in this area. “Le Village Monkland” as it is known, has a very European flavor due to its blend of francophone and anglophone residents and shops.
There is a Bixi bicycle-sharing station within 5 minutes which will provide you with a wonderful way to visit Montreal on bicycle. A 10 minute walk to Villa-Maria Metro station provides easy access to downtown within 7-15 minutes and 10-20 minutes to the following attractions: Mount Royal Park, Old Montreal, the Old Port, Loyola campus and University of Montreal (and surrounding Cote des Neiges area); 30 minutes to the Olympic stadium, Insectarium, Biodome, Botanical Gardens.
We would appreciate our guests to respect the following rules:
- Please remove your outdoor shoes and leave on the shoe rack provided in the foyer. Guests are more than welcome to use indoor slippers or sandals (2 are provided by us) in the house. :)
- Please be mindful of the fact that the bathroom sink is constructed of solid wood. We would appreciate your efforts to keep the wooden surface dry (ie. no standing water, especially around the mirror!)
- In the kitchen, we provide condiments, sugar and salt (we understand it can be annoying to buy a huge sac of sugar/salt for a short stay). Please inform us if the supplies are running low. There is also a coffee machine and electric kettle (besides the remaining appliances!)
Om værten, JP And Christine
We are a couple in our mid-thirties. We currently live in Montreal (Quebec) but are each from different places (Western Canada and France).
Since becoming members on airbnb, we have found that meeting and staying with people in their homes to be a much more pleasant and warm way to visit cities and meet people. We have begun to host in order to do the same for others.
Please feel free to ask if you would like to know more about us. :)
