About Paige Hofer

Hi! Welcome to my suites. My name is Paige and I am here to make your stay as comfortable and welcoming as possible. As a passionate traveler, I have always preferred the unique stays offered in furnished apartments over hotels.

A big life change lead me from Western Canada to Montreal where I'd find myself studying at McGill University. It was during this time I started renting my furnished apartments to help finance myself through my degree. I am still working through my degree, but have found myself in another major life change: Mommy-hood. As of January 2015, I am 6 months pregnant and my business of renting corporate and vacation stays in the Old Port and Plateau/Downtown of Montreal has grown into 8 apartments/condos.

I love what I do, I love providing perfectly located apartments for business and vacation travellers. Not only have I been granted the creative outlet I crave for the designer in me to play, but my little Stays by Paige company is a part of a much bigger vision I have in equipping and fostering community growth among other entrepreneurs and visionaries with hopes of providing real tools and concrete solutions to aid the more marginalized people of Montreal's society.

As I navigate through the many changes of pregnancy and mommy-hood, Samy, my life partner is here to assist me in ensuring my guests have everything they need for a comfortable stay. Please do not hesitate to contact myself or Samy with any questions.

Please also feel free to find and like my facebook page to get great links to whats happening in and around Montreal during your stay.

Why Paige Hofer chose Montreal

I love this space. It's both whimsically and practically designed. I've incorporated both modern and vintage pieces making the space timeless and unique. The concrete building gives you a virtually soundproof stay. From the 17th floor in the Old Port of Montreal, you have a peekaboo view towards the West. It is a bright and airy apartment equipped with everything you need for a short or long term stay.

What makes this studio unique

Washer and dryer in the suite.

Secure parking in the building at extra cost

Car rental available!!! I have started sharing my 2015 Lexus RX350 to select guests at $100 per day, includes parking, and all taxes and fees!!!


Guestbook comments from the manager

The best location! A great apartment!

Left on 01/31/2014 for a stay in January 2014

I would easily recommend this apartment for a bachelor or for a couple! We stayed there for a whole month and we had everything we need. The owner was really helpful and flexible, what made our lifes way easier. The studio is really clean and near the subway. The underground city is a few steps away, making it a great place to stay in the winter, and no need to have a car! It's in a walking distance of great places, like the old port (which have an ice skating area), Congress palace, ILSC language school, grocery stores, shopping areas...

I'll stay in that apartment for sure during my next Montreal trip.

Hard to beat the location and owners

  • 5 of 5

Although perhaps a little cozier than the ad pictures suggest the property was great. Location was ideal and the property management team was a joy to work with. Definitely worth consideration if you are looking for a place to stay downtown.

Easy and convenient to Old Port.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the apartment - easy parking, just around the corner from Notte Dame, easy walk to the Port. The apartment was clean, classy, and just what we needed for two nights in Montreal.

Great place, location and host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Montreal and staying at this apartment made it even better. The place is exactly as mentioned in the description and it was very clean and organized when we arrived! It felt very homey and it is in a great location (2 minute walk to Notre Dame)! Paige was also very accommodating, responding my calls and emails when I had questions. I really appreciated that!

The studio apartment is perfect for a couple. and offers enough space to feel comfortable!! We are very happy with this renter and our trip to Montreal.

Thank you again Paige!

Nice Place

We had a problem with our arrangements, but Paige took care of everything immediately.

Paige was a great host..personally made sure we were checked in OK, and answered all our questions.

Great location; everything is within walking distance and next to a Metro station.

Car: not necessary

You are right on the edge of where the Old Port meets the International district. Its upscale and chic with the top clubs, restaurants, and spas. Historical charm meets modern edgy designs. You are within walking distance of the greatest things Montreal offers. THE BEST area to visit Montreal!!!!

Metro D'Armes is directly across the street, but everything is essentially within walking distance.

A bixie bike stand is outside your door.
