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.
Janick was a great host she made me feel very comfortable. This was my first time using airbnb. The room was clean and the location was just right. Right across from the park. I def recommend!
I had a great time staying with Janick. I was able to check in at 10pm without issue, and the accommodations were what you see in the picture. For those who prefer arrive by car but prefer to walk, parking on the street is accessible and safe. The entire apartment was very clean, comfortable, and inviting. While taking a break from exploring the city, her two lovely cats were more than happy to keep me company. Nights were very comfortable in the bed pictured, with more than enough room for one person or a couple.
Exploring the city was easy with the metro located 5-10 minutes away on foot (I walked at a leisurely pace). I always felt safe walking around Plateau Mont-Royal, with people around at all hours of the day. The surrounding shops were fantastic, with plenty of food to try at reasonable prices, should you prefer not to cook (I did not cook). I made a majority of transactions with Canadian dollars, although credit purchases were very easy with a U.S. credit card. If you don't speak French (I do not), many residents are English speakers as well. Personally, I had little to no trouble navigating with my very limited French; to get the full experience though, I'd imagine knowing French would be necessary.
I was privileged with the opportunity to spend a few evenings talking to Janick, which should you get the chance, I recommend. Janick is very nice, sincere, intelligent, and open-minded; all traits that make for a fantastic room-mate and conversationalist. To create a friendly environment for a complete stranger within ones own living space is no easy feat, for which I applaud and thank her. When I find myself back in Montreal again, the first place I'll look for a room is with Janick.
Nous avons passé deux nuits chez Janick. L'appartement est très agréable, cosy et super bien placé. Nous nous sommes sentis un peu comme chez nous.
Janick (and her two lovely cats) are great hosts - I really enjoyed my stay. The place is conveniently located near to the subway, Wilfred Laurie park, and to great coffee and brunch places. Janick also gives great advice on where to go and what to see in Montreal.
We stayed with Janick for 6 nights around New Years time and enjoyed our stay.We had arrived at quite an odd time but Janick was about to accommodate our late arrival, which was greatly appreciated. Throughout our stay, we didn't see much of Janick as we were out most of the day exploring Montreal, but when we did see her she was friendly, easy going, and making sure that we had what we needed. Even with my usual allergies to cats, I did not have any issues staying there, Janick cleaned the room before we arrived and made sure the cats did not enter. The great thing about this location is that the metro is literally 5 minutes walk away, which will take you anywhere in Montreal. As well, there is a nice park nearby (too cold in the winter, but I can see it being really nice when the weather is warmer). I recommend this spot to stay in Montreal for sure!
We had a wonderful time staying with Janick! She was very helpful in guiding us on where to eat and which places are vegetarian-friendly. We would definitely stay with Janick again next time we're in Montreal. Being able to park in front of the apartment all weekend without having to move the car was a huge bonus. The kitties were very friendly, too!
Janick was a very good host. She and really offers a charming apartment for a very reasonable price. Everything is clean and nice.
Janick is a good person to talk and discuss with, so I got insight of the life and habits in Montreal.
If anybody is interested to stay in a nice apartment with a nice host – this is the right place!
My stay at Janick's place was just great. Janick is really one of the most welcoming and friendly persons I ever met by airbnb, and thanks to her I really felt at home all the time I was in Montreal. Her flat was very nice, and the bedroom was perfect. I couldn't recommend her place enough!
Mon séjour chez Janick a été idéal. Janick est vraiment l'une des personnes les plus accueillantes et les plus amicales que j'ai pu rencontrer par airbnb, et grâce à elle j'ai vraiment pu me sentir "à la maison" tout le temps où je me suis trouvé à Montréal. Son appartement est très sympa, et la chambre était parfaite. Je ne saurais assez la recommander!
J'ai passé un excellent séjour chez Janick. Une hôte très accueillante, avec de vrais talents de cuisinière :) ! L'appartement est idéalement situé, de jolis commerces à proximité! La chambre est joliment décorée et on y dort très bien!
Janinck is friendly and her apartment is lovely. Great location and her cats are very sweet.
