About Virginia Huber

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

Why Virginia Huber chose Montreal

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.

What makes this townhome unique

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.

Perfect Family Spot

  • 5 of 5
Our family with three young boys (13,10,6) stayed for a week in Virginia's apartment this summer. It was one of the best vacation we have ever had! We live in a fairly rural area, so it was a big thrill for the boys to be able to walk to a corner store, the park or the YMCA pool (you can buy a pool pass for $5). The neighborhood felt very safe and we were surrounded by destinations for them to explore - everything from small markets and bakeries on Sherbrooke to Yumi sushi (where we ate three times!) to the bike path. Bring your bikes and you can safely ride a complete circuit around Montreal starting and ending one block away from the apartment.

Overall, this apartment was the perfect home base for our adventures. We had enough room for our family and the kitchen allowed us to cook at home, which cut the cost of our trip. And the location was beautiful. We will come back again!

Five Women

  • 5 of 5
This property is a must if you are traveling to Montreal. Five of us recently enjoyed our annual girls getaway. Upon arrival, we were impressed with the cleanliness and comfort overall. The apartment is spacious and offers a fully, first class equipped kitchen, quality linens and comfy beds. The neighborhood is quiet but is very close to restaurants, groceries, shopping, bus and metro. As parking can be a bit challenging, we opted to leave the car for three nights in a commercial parking garage nearby. We got a great rate total of only $25 for all three nights. This way we did not have to worry about the parking laws re: on street parking. Thank you Virginia for offering us such a great accommodation.

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.

Notes:
Staying in my Westmount duplex will make you feel like you have your own home in Montreal. I have owned this property for a long time and though I live elsewhere now, the apt is filled with items that I have collected over the years from my travels. I make a point of staying in the apt as often as I can to make sure it still has its heart and soul.
