Cozy bedroom all decorated with local artist work, in a typical Montreal flat, right in front of one of the nicest park in the city. Well located, you have access to all the commodities and coffee shops / restaurants within 5 minutes walk.
The apartment has the typical Montreal architecture with a lot of character.
The room is all decorated with local artists work, with a comfy double bed, a desk and a small closet to put your stuff.
You will have access to the living room, bathroom and kitchen with everything in it. You will also have the chance to eat/relax on one of the two balconys with a nice view on the park. This is priceless during summertime :)
I'm a freelance worker and my schedule is never the same, so I work a lot from home, so don't take it personally if I'm in my room a big part of the day. I'm super friendly and it's a pleasure to give you all the information you need, even share dinner if we get along together. I'm not a morning person so I might not interact with you at this time of the day.
This part of the Plateau Mont-Royal is one of the nicest neighborhood in the city, right in front of the Laurier Park, which is really great in a big city.
All the commodities are near. The grocery store and drugstore are at 5 min walks, and you have plenty of boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops right on Laurier street. (Take a look at my "guide" to see some of my favorite spot in the neighborhood and the rest of the city!)
If you like to take a walk, you can go everywhere in a short time (Mile-End, Rosemont, Plateau of course) and it takes around 30 minutes to go downtown by walk. There is also a lot of Bixi station around the place, if you want to use the public bike system.
For those who arrive by car, there is plenty of free parking on the street, or you can rent the parking lot in the backyard for a small cost.
Subway station and bus are at 5 minutes walk.
I have two super-friendly cats. If you are allergic, I can keep the door close after I clean it.
Like a lot of old buildings in the city, the walls and floors are not really soundproofed. So the only thing i ask is to be careful with the noise ;)
Also, do not download to much stuff with the internet. I share the connection with my friends downstairs and it's not unlimited.
Le logement est tel qu'il est décrit dans l'annonce. La chambre est très agréable, propre et ensoleillée. Le logement est proche du centre ville avec le métro juste à côté ou à pieds pour les plus courageux :-) De très nombreux commerces, pubs... sont à proximité.
Dès mon arrivée Jannick m'a indiqué toutes les commodités nécessaires pour visiter Montréal. Elle a été vraiment très agréable et disponible lors de mon séjour, répondant toujours au mieux à mes besoins. Elle a laissé de la documentation sur Montréal assez appréciable lorsqu'on arrive dans cette ville pour la première fois! Merci
J'ai bien aimé mon expérience chez Janick bien que malheureusement, je n'ai pas eu le plaisir de la rencontrer. L'endroit est tel que décrit sur le site. C'est tranquille, propre et très bien situé. L'appartement fait face à un beau parc et on trouve à proximité une foule de restaurants et de café.
This stay was problematic. I'll do my best to indicate why, in a fair way. First the positives. The bedroom was clean, and the bathroom. A good shower, powerful, and Janick left lotions. There are also guidebooks in the bedroom which are useful. The area is great: loads of cafes and a park across the road. Janick is friendly. On the first day she advised me about where I could get an adapter for the plug socket, which was helpful. Unfortunately after the first day things didn't go so well. Janick's description indicates this is a quiet apartment. Actually it's pretty loud. The bedroom opens immediately onto the kitchen; the kitchen table is 3 feet from the guest's bed. Most evenings Janick had one or more friends over and the noise made it impossible to relax. The main problem was that Janick was inconsiderate of my needs (which weren't many). In my initial email I said that I was an academic coming to Montreal to present a paper at a conference. I wasn't just coming to hang out, then, but to work. If she wasn't able to accommodate this she should have indicated so. I arrived on the Thursday night. On the Friday night I was still jet-lagged (I flew from London) and Janick had her friends over for drinks. She and her friends stayed in drinking, talking loudly and listening to music till 1am before going out. Janick didn't consider asking me whether it was disturbing me. She and her boyfriend also came back late that night and woke me up by making plenty of noise. On Saturday I was out for the day. When I got back around 18h I told Janick I was tired and was going to relax in my bedroom. 5mins later one of her friends called round, and they went straight to the kitchen and again made lots of noise -- when Janick knew I was trying to relax. I stayed 5mins before getting up and leaving the apartment. I was presenting my paper on the Monday, as I'd told Janick. At around 1.15am on Sunday night/Monday morning Janick took a phone call and woke me up by talking loudly; only for a minute, but long enough that I was awake afterwards for half an hour. Janick, in short, never considered my needs or that she should modify her schedule in any way. She actually didn't even know my name 4 days into my stay, which says something. Janick will no doubt reply to this and suggest I wasn't a good sport or had the wrong expectations. My expectations were based on her ad, which, as I've pointed out, says that she is a quiet person; though even when she is working in her room, the door of that room is open and there is always (rock) music playing. A more considerate host would try to genuinely accommodate someone paying them money for that purpose (a few hundred dollars) -- not just give a...
Wow I'm very sorry that you had such a bad experience.. In my add it says that it's an old building and that we can ear everything.. I often sleep with earplugs because of that, and it's not my responsibility if you did not think of it.. For the music, noise, friends over, it was the weekend and I usually don't change my plans if I have guest. It never had been a problem, and most of the time, guests join us for a couple of drinks. That's what Airbnb is about, meeting new people, share the lifestyle of the person you live at.. I'm sorry if we were incompatible mates, does not make me a bad host.. I would have appreciate if you would talk to me when you were unsatisfied instead of dealing with this publicly when it's to late for me to fix anything :( And for your name, please don't take it personally, I'm really bad with names, and yours is not common in Qc, that's why I had to think of Oasis to remember it......
The location is quite good,close to the downtown,the room has a queen bed,very confortable.Janicck is nice,and two cats are so cute.
Janick's apartment is in a wonderful location: close to the metro, parks, cafés, and more. She is a very kind and friendly person and we really enjoyed meeting her. The room itself is pretty and clean with lots of light and art, as well as a comfortable bed. Definitely recommended for the traveler who wants to explore Montreal and have a laid back place to come home to. Also, her cats are cute and friendly!!
Fantastic! Janick is just lovely and a great host. She's really easy going and welcoming plus she loves Montréal so has lots of local intel and tips. The apartment is in such a perfect location for wandering around local shops (and bakeries...Janick has lots of recommendations and I will add the almond croissants at Mr Pinchot on Rue de Brebeuf), heading up the mountain or getting in to town (I walked). The room is clean and comfortable. The 2 cats are very friendly but just shut the bedroom door if that's a problem.
Super logement et très bien situé!! Janick est disponible, sympa et de très bons conseils pour les visites et lieux culturels (et surtout resto :) )
La chambre est propre et typique des appartements Montréalais. On a l'impression d'être un local!
Et les deux chats sont adorables. Je recommande vivement ce logement!!

I'm a freelance hair and make up artist so my schedule change every day. I spend a lot of time at home but I'm really quiet. I'm also a big art and music fan so if you need some recommendations, I'll be able to help :) I like to meet new people, it will be a pleasure to welcome you to my place.
Je suis travailleuse autonome en tant qu'artiste en maquillage et coiffure donc mon horaire est variable, selon les contrats que j'ai. Je passe beaucoup de temps à la maison mais je suis tranquille. Je me passionne d'arts et de musique, je serai donc une bonne référence si nous partageons les mêmes intérêts. J'aime faire de nouvelles rencontres, il me fera donc plaisir de vous accueillir chez moi.
