This apartment was my home away from home for 3 weeks in Montreal. Linda is the owner and does an absolutely great job. She is really trustworthy. All e-mails - before and during the stay - were quickly responded. Sometimes in a matter of few hours.
This apartment is perfect for a solo or couple traveler. It is fully equipped - from bathroom and bedroom to kitchen. You don't need to worry about bringing any stuff. Internet is available with fast bandwidth. Skype calls won't be an issue. TV presents local channels - some of them in English as well.
But what this apartment most impresses is its gorgeous view to Mont Royal. I can imagine the dance of colors during the autumn morning or the sublime white shades along the Montreal's winter. The balcony invites for an every day tea sip by the dusk.
The neighborhood also counts in favor. Safe and vibrant, it has an acceptable movement during the day. At night it is quite and calm. I frequently slept with the window opened.
Subway (green line) is in walking distance. No more than 7 minutes to reach Guy-Concordia station. Lots of restaurants nearby as well as those famous dépanneurs - small local markets which are really handy in a last-minute need.
The magnificent Montreal's Beaux Arts Museum is just 3 blocks away.
As it is located just on the slope of Mount Royal, it is possible to reach the Mont Royal Chalet and its terrace for the well-known and well-portrayed views of the city through some woody trails from Avenue des Pins. A must-do at least once.
Linda will probably wait for you to deliver the keys and to give some directions. Otherwise she will leave them with the doorman. The same happens when you go.
While in Montreal I will not hesitate: I'll get in touch with her to hire this apartment again.
Important to note that Linda manages other properties, so make sure what one you are renting.
