I have been living in Montreal since I graduated from the Universityof Western Ontario. I was fascinated by the city as a little girl and there was no question that it was the place for me to make my way in life. I made my career in Montreal's fashion industry and now that I am retired, I split my time between Montreal and my second home in Stowe Vermont. I have the best of both worlds..an exciting, sophisticated, international city with out of this world restaurants and a delightful country retreat with all sorts of athletic outdoorsy things to do. Do come and visit either of my favourite places and see what I am so in love with. You can see my Stowe property as # 248825 on Homeaway's site.

Virginia Huber purchased this townhome in 1974

MY grand father was an architect in England and I think the love of houses, especially those with old bones, is in my blood. I bought this house when I was young and foolish, but in fact it was the smartest thing I could ever have done. It was a forced savings program for me and instead of buying more shoes and handbags, I paid my mortgage and now this wonderful house is paying me back.

The very special thing about this house is that it is in the most charming neighbourhood. Westmount is rather exclusive, but where I live on a street just off Sherbrooke St, there is a real village feeling with everything you could possibly need within walking distance. It is an old district, so the trees are mature and there is a quiet elegance in the Victorian architecture.

GORGEOUS APARTMENT, PERFECT FOR A FAMILY MONTREAL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Virginia's apartment is spacious, immaculate, beautifully decorated with comfy beds, wonderful linens and a well-equipped kitchen. The location is perfect -- close to buses, parks and amazing cafés. Also, it's a runner's paradise -- a great neighborhood for a scenic jog/ walk. Tonight is our last night and my husband and kids and I have had a really great time. My kids are already asking when we'll be back!

CHARMING, COMFORTABLE, ENJOYABLE

  • 5 of 5
As a former Montrealer, our group of five decided to rent this upper duplex on a quiet street close to all amenities. It was large, clean and well-appointed with every comfort of home, full of character, charm, antiques, updated kitchen and baths. It is on a quiet street in a neighborhood with access to the metro and numerous bus lines, many stores, coffee shops, boutiques and some restaurants. If you enjoy a nice walk and the weather permits, one can even walk to or from downtown along beautiful Sherbrooke St. or de Maisonneuve Ave., through Westmount park. An excellent place to stay! Thank you, Virginia.

FABULOUS , COMFY ATMOSPHERE FOR A FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
My family rented the 3 bedroom upper duplex and the 2 bedroom basement apartment for a family reunion this past November. Finding for a place to accommodate 10 people comfortably is not easy, but this combination of an upper duplex and basement apartment for a total of 5 bedrooms allowed us all to be together. The place was very clean and exactly as represented by the photos and descriptions and the price was favorable. The beds were fantastic. It was a cold November weekend, but the apartment was warm, cozy and felt just like we were relaxing at home. The owner was charming, easy to contact, answered all my questions and obtained parking permits. The street was quiet but just around the corner were a great bakery, groceries, deli and restaurants. It was very easy to get downtown either by car or public transport. Westmount Park and public library are just a block away. We would definatly rent this place again. Thanks Virginia.

GREAT HOUSE AND NEIGHBORHOOD!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Montreal for a wedding and wanted a place for our family (including several small kids). Virginia's house was perfect for all of us. The house has a really nice feel to it. It's nice and comfortable, without being too fussy or pretentious. It's also super well-equipped and stocked. The neighborhood is amazing. There's a great grocery ship just around the corner. There are also tons of cute boutiques, which were great for last minute wedding-related purchases. Our kids also made several trips to the nearby Westmount Park, which has great playground equipment for little ones. Virginia was really helpful and accommodating. She even organized us a baby gate for the stairs, as well as a neighborhood parking permit, which made the parking quite easy. The house is also great because you can use public transport. The bus into town was super quick and easy. We had a terrific stay and would definitely recommend the house to anyone visiting Montreal.

Notes:

I make a point of staying in the apt as often as I can to make sure it still has its heart and soul.
