This was another fantastic vrbo experience. Family of three, we stayed 5 nights in July/August, first time visit to Montreal. We chose this place based on the reviews, location, and price. Renting apartments is our preferred way of travel, and frankly, we have never had a bad experience. This trip was one of the best. We couldn't have made a better choice. The second floor apartment with outside stairway access was spotless clean, cozy and comfortable, quiet at night, well equipped, with a modern, contemporary flair. We loved having the espresso maker and water cooler, nice little covered terrace in the back, newly installed efficient air conditioning, large bathroom with washer and dryer, and oh-so comfortable beds. The location is great, if you seek authentic experience of living like locals. The area is safe and lively. IGA grocery store 1 block away. Jean Talon market : every morning I walked or biked there to get fresh pastries and bread, fruits and treats. The apartment is close to two metro stations - Babien and Jean Talon on orange line, 4-6 stops from Mt. Royal and downtown. Easy and quick trip. We also biked to downtown using bixi bikes. It is a pleasant and safe way to see parts of the city, as the network of bike lanes and bike paths is extensive. Helene was pleasant and genuinely concerned about our well being and comfort. She lives downstairs, so if there is any problem she would right there to resolve it (not that we had any). The reservation process and communication was excellent. We definitely recommend this rental, and hope to return some day. Merci beaucoup, Helene.
