Overview

Montreal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 BR + 1 Bath - (Sleeps 4-6)

For a good idea of what you’ll experience, please read our REVIEWS. Our guests keep coming back because we offer great value and a quality experience in a dynamic neighborhood that is quiet, close to downtown and has many of Montreal’s top restaurants.

Gallery 2 is in a meticulously restored century old building close to downtown and minutes from the subway (Metro), the Atwater Market and the historic Lachine Canal. An ideal pied-à-terre for anyone that wants to be in one of the most dynamic villages in Montreal. This 2 bedroom second floor unit is bright and sleeps 4 to 6. Finished with hardwood floors, it is spotlessly clean & tastefully decorated with original art, high quality furnishings, linens & appointments throughout. It features a master bedroom with a queen size sleigh bed and 1 bedroom with 2 single beds. The den has a sofa with a double pull out bed. Also in the den there is a flat screen TV and a collection of DVD’s from our library of over 100 movies for all ages. The bathroom has a deep tub that will soothe you after a good day of sightseeing and is equipped with a front loading washer & dryer. The dining room is beside the all equipped kitchen with dishwasher that leads out to a very large deck with two patio sets and two BBQ’s (Gallery 1 shares the deck with you). The deck is next to our beautiful rooftop garden. All our units also come stocked with books and board games. Called the GALLERY 2 because this is 1 of 3 units in the building that is located next to the previous owner Jane's private art gallery & studio.

Our other units in the same building are Gallery 3 (#193135) and Gallery 1 (#211812)

Good food is just steps away at the deluxe IGA grocery store or the delicious Atwater market where you can savor gourmet foods, pastries and deli style food. If you prefer to eat out, we are a few minutes walking from some of Montreal’s top restaurants (Joe Beef, Tuck Shop, H4C, Smoking Vallee, CHO, McKiernans, Magnans Tavern) or if you prefer a drink in a hip setting there is La Drinkerie, Burgundy Lion, Grumman 78, Ludger.

Aside from fine dining, there are many things to do in this area. Depending on the season, you could catch a hockey game at the Bell Center, go rock climbing at Allez-Up indoor rock climbing gym or rent a kayak and paddle on the Lachine Canal. You can also walk or cycle on the Lachine Canal bike path which is just 15 minutes by bike to the Old Port and Old Montreal. Note that you can leave your bikes at home because we have 6 adult bikes for rent for $5 a day or maximum charge of $20 (includes helmets and locks). For small children there is a nice park with playground and splash pad just one block away.

About Etienne Masse

New owner same high quality service! I have good relationships with the previous owners John & Jane who still give me a hand sometimes. I always wanted to own a hotel and this about as close as it gets. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I also believe that we offer a great value to travellers. We've made our apartments up as if we were renting them ourselves. We pride ourselves on being good hosts and offering you a great stay. We try to make every aspect of your stay a pleasant experience.

Etienne Masse purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Etienne Masse chose Montreal

This is a great area, there are good restaurants and we are very close to the subway system (called Metro) so we can be downtown in minutes. We are also very close to the Atwater market where there is great food and restaurants. We are also minutes from the Canal which has great bike paths and walking areas that lead to the Old Port of Montreal.

What makes this apartment unique

Proximity to downtown, the Atwater market, Metro (subway) and a lot of really good restaurants.

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.

Amazing location and accomadations

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us rent your apartment. My wife, three children, ages 07,10 and 14, and I were very comfortable. They mentioned how homey it felt. The guidebook that you provided was very helpful. We hope to be traveling back to Montreal in the future. The entire experience left a very nice impression on all of us. It was good to know that after a long day of sightseeing, the rental felt like home.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, beds were comfortable and the location was excellent, walking distance to grocery store IGA, many restaurants and Metro stop. We enjoyed the deck very much during hot weather in July when we visited. Also, the ceiling fans and A/C unit were much appreciated.

The owners and caretaker were helpful. We borrowed from the owners' extensive video collection to entertain the kids after a long day of sight seeing. We enjoyed visits to Atwater Market and the doughnut shop, also the brewpub St. Ambrois along the canal. Don't miss!

It was quite helpful to have a binder of information pertaining to the apartment and area.

My one caution, but not a criticism, is to bring your own detergent if you plan to do laundry on the premises. I left some after our visit, so please enjoy!

We would certainly recommend this apartment and would stay here again with no hesitation.

Great stay in Montreal

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described. Very neat and clean with all the essentials. Conveniently close to the metro and some fine restaurants (Sumac has good falafel and shawarma). I recommend this property without reservation.
