Why Etienne Masse chose Saint-Henri

Great area, good restaurants and we are very close to the subway system (called Metro) downtown reachable in minutes just a couple of station away.

Very close to the Atwater market where there is great food and restaurants. We are also minutes from the Canal Lachine which has great bike paths and walking areas that lead to the Old Port of Montreal.

What makes this apartment unique

Proximity to downtown / Old Montreal, walking distance to the Atwater market, Metro (subway) Place St-Henri, grocery store, lot of really good restaurants and nice pubs.

Perfectly located in a vibrant neighbourhood to come and enjoy the real Montreal experience!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved everything about this charming apartment! The owner was so easy to deal with, and very accessible to answer all questions. He even took time to install the air conditioner while getting ready to leave the province for his son's wedding! The apartment is immaculate, meticulously maintained and well equipped for everything you need. The outdoor deck and barbecue were a huge bonus, as was the washer and dryer. Beds were very comfortable and the deep soaker tub (with shower) was lovely. The only thing I'd ever add to this great place is a small coffee table in the sitting room - so we could have a place to lay our glass of wine at the end of the day! The location is excellent as well - this was my first visit to Montreal, on a cross-country trip, and it is quite easy to access travelling east on the Trans Canada Highway. It is just around the corner from a Metro stop, which was wonderful to visit all parts of Montreal. Lots of great little restaurants in the area as well - we ate at the Greenspot Diner (good diner food) and The Burgundy Lion Pub (amazing menu! highly recommended). There is also an IGA just up the road, great for supplies. And also quite close to the great Atwater Market, which we really enjoyed visiting. The canal is very nearby also, and is great for walking. We stayed 4 nights in Gallery #2 apartment, and would very definitely return. We highly recommend staying here!

Quiet street in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment! Very clean and well kept. Many thanks to John and Jane for their warm welcome and supply of fresh Montreal bagels! The owners were always available if needed. Well organized local information and wireless internet on site. Quiet location close to Atwater Market, the Lachine canal, and downtown. Recently renovated and plenty of space for our 16 month old to roam. We visit Montreal often and the apartment was perfect for our family gathering (fully equipped kitchen). We're planning to rent the unit again for upcoming visits.

Best furnished apartment we have stayed in. Hip area, easy access by metro to downtown attractions. Nearby Atwater Market is a must stop. Bus #55 to Plateau Mont Royal to see panarama view of city.

Charming and bright

  • 4 of 5

This apartment very clean and well stocked. It is one block off of a main street so quiet, in residential area. Short walk to subway which we used daily to get everywhere, and IGA on the way back to apartment .Ouside eating area pleasant. I would stay there again

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I stayed a week at this charming apartment. The location was perfect: close to the St. Henri metro stop, a wonderful coffee shop, and a delicious taco restaurant! The apartment was spacious, clean and we enjoyed coming back to it after a day of sightseeing! I would definitely stay here again!

A spacious, convenient, immaculate place to call home

  • 5 of 5

We pretty much really liked everything--convenience to metro, IGA, and the wonderful Atwater market. Lovely furnishings and decor, nice to have an outdoor area and grill, and the washer and dryer so helpful! If I could rate it as 4.5 I would because of a few minor details. For us duvets are too warm, and there wasn't a lighter weight blanket option, but it was warm and we were fine with only the sheet. The kitchen was nice, but as is typical with rentals, adequate cooking equipment for much real cooking was lacking. We managed because we cooked simple foods. Onstreet parking was a concern--we got lucky and got a great spot. Then we didn't dare move the car for fear of how far we might have to schlep our stuff upon departure. And one more little thing--although the bathtub was NOT slippery, I was very cautious because I had just taken a fall in one in another VRBO where we had not found the anti-slip mat. Looked thoroughly for one here, but there wasn't one. Also tiny detail: no flyswatter that we could find. Overall--it was very nice, nicely priced, and if we were to return, we would be unlikely to look for a different option.
