Rustic elegance that wraps it's arms around you!

  • 5 of 5

I have been very negligent about writing my review and i have come to the conclusion of why that is,this place is simply just so special to me after experiencing it that I wanted to keep it all to myself. But that is not being fair to our wonderfully accommodating hostess Dawne

From the moment I found this magical flat to when we finally forced ourselves to leave I was thoroughly impressed. I have traveled extensively and have utilized cyberrentals many times. I have always had good experiences but nothing better than this one!

I fell upon this beauty very late one night trying to plan a semi last minute romantic trip for us for Valentine's weekend and shot out an email. Never and I mean never have I received such a lightning fast and personal response from an owner. The very next morning I am getting a call from France and the lovely Dawne is on the other line. We had a wonderful conversation. Transaction was a breeze. We talked a few more times about directions things to do and were off.

Dawne's directions were great, we found parking and we couldn't have been more pleased when we opened the door. It is better than the pictures. You feel like you are stepping back in time with the thick stone walls,recessed windows and the ceiling beams. I felt my jaw drop and just knew we were gonna have a fabulously romantic time even if we never left the flat. We were greated by a welcome message from Dawne on the machine again evidence of her attention to detail not just in her exquisite taste in decorating but also to her committent to her guests needs.

It was freezing outside and to have such a wonderful mix of history with all the modern anemities anyone could ask for to come home to was heart warming. We loved the fireplace and the chess game was well utilized. The kitchen was so open and well appointed. there was even a woodstove in the kitchen if you needed to be extra cozy. It was wonderful and envigorating waking up to the sunlight that filtered in through all the wondows that literally surround three sides of the flat.

We had originally booked for thurs fri and sat night but I woke up in the cozy gorgeous bedroom sunday morning and just didn't want to leave. I emailed Dawne on a wish and a prayer and she got back to me in like 1/2 hr and said yes. Then Scott woke up Monday and he didn't want to leave again Dawne was prompt to respond and we stayed.

Wish we never had to go, Can't wait to return! <3 Nancy and Scott

Great apartment, beat location .... But

  • 2 of 5

This is a wonderfully romantic cozy apartment in the heart of old Montreal. Well appointed with a grand modern kitchen. The bedroom is cozy with wonderful morning light. We would normally give this rental 5 stars HOWEVER, when we arrived it was not cleaned, so we had spend a hour to clean - change the sheets, the bathroom towels, clean vanity sink and toilet and wipe down the kitchen - so, we are taking off 2 stars. To make matters a bit worst, we reported this deficiency to the owner, who never responded to your emails, even after we checked out - so, we are taking off another star!

One other note: there is a street light less than 15 feet from the bedroom windows, and the drapes do not completely block out the light making the bedroom a bit bright for sleeping.

Perfect location, perfect flat

  • 5 of 5

This flat was in the in perfect location, walking distance to everything. We roamed all the streets of Montreal and had many wonderful meals out, and yet the flat had a fully stocked kitchen and we had many romantic meals we made together. There was nothing lacking,great response from the owner as well. The flat was very old and authentic and we had the best getaway.

The perfect Montreal apartment

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Montreal many times, but never had such a perfect accommodation. Everything is exactly as you see, only better. We stayed for a week and could have stayed a month! The location is brilliant as we love walking - and also using Bixi bikes and Metro. No problem from here. And we love to cook. This apartment had everything you need to feel at home. Below the apartment is a charming cafe and gelato shop with excellent baked goods and coffee. Wow - must be experienced. We loved the local restaurants - Boris Bistro, Restaurant Holder, Hambar, Dollcetto Italian Bar. Very nice. We would recommend this rental to anyone. The owner was a delight to deal with. Look forward to our next stay!

The apartment was all we hoped for and more

Very clean and nicely equipped with everything you could need

The cafe downstairs was an added bonus (coffee and croissants for breakfast!)

Location was excellent - very near the Old Port and Notre Dame

Lots of wonderful restaurants nearby - tasting menu at Bonaparte was especially lovely

The owner was very friendly and helpful

Would highly recomend

Charming flat in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed almost a week in this elegant flat near the water and Old Montreal. It felt like we were in a charming Parisian neighborhood. The ambiance of the area was just perfect with the sweet cafe right below us, fabulous restaurants within blocks, and a quick stroll to the river. Just lovely. The owner, Dawne, is as wonderful as the flat -- calling to check up on us and to make sure everything was just right. The flat itself is perfect. A lovely old world feel with all the modern amenities for today. It definitely was the perfect place to call 'home' as we explored the beautiful city of Montreal.

Map

Car: not necessary

Located in the heart of Old Montreal,our loft-style apartment is located on a greenbelt park in a 1806 listed historic building just a few steps from the acclaimed Pointe-A-Calliere Museum of Archeology and History.

We are a 5 minute walk from either Place Victoria or Place des Arts metro stations. All of the amazing Underground City of Montreal can be accessed from either of these. Great in the winter months to escape the chilly weather or during the warmer months to get out of the heat.

One of Montreals popular BIXI bike rental locations is just a short block from the door. All amenities including either IGA or Metro supermarkets, drug stores(Jean Coutou or PharmaPrix), banks, coffee shops, and numerous great restaurants are within a few minutes of the door.
