About Frederique Chalifoux
I, Bernhard, was born in Salzburg , Austria. I have spent almost 20 years travelling the world on cruise ships working in the Food and Beverage and Hotel Management departments. This is where I met my wife, Frederique, originally from Montreal, Canada. Frederique was an entertainer at first and then moved on to sales and marketing. After a true Love Boat story (we literally met on the Love Boat!), we decided to elect permanent residence in Montreal. Since we have always worked with the public, it only made sense that we would continue in this path. We therefore have spent the last few years working in the property management field in Montreal and really enjoy it. Because it keeps us close to our roots, we decided to buy of our 1st rental building located in the best part of town, Le Plateau Mont-Royal and to start welcoming people from around the world. We hope you enjoy the location and the amenities we have prepared for you. Between the two of us, we speak English, German, French and enough Spanish to get by. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions and welcome to our place!
Frederique Chalifoux purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Frederique Chalifoux chose Plateau Mont-Royal
The location is really unbeatable and you get 3 full bathrooms which is uncommon in Montreal.
What makes this Apartment unique
We managed during the planning and the renovations to have 2 en-suites + 1 extra bathroom put in which makes it a really unique property suitable for large families as well as business travelers. We also had a 200 sf terrace installed so to enjoy the warmer days.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great property, great location. Our whole family went. Old folks, kids and grandkids- 6 adults and two children (we range from late 60's to 1) participated this trip and there was room for many more. All had a fantastic time! Inside accommodations are clean, well equipped, enjoyable, comfortable and relatively new. We visited in early July, so not surprisingly outside can get hot and muggy some days; however A/C was great (you call Frederique to adjust if pre set temp not to your liking). There is a very nice balcony with tables / chairs in the back... unexpected and quite enjoyable, particularly in the evening with an adult beverage (or a meal if you plan better than I did). There is a reasonably well-equipped kitchen if you want to dine in... or lots of very enjoyable places for meals (including young kids) within 5-15 minutes walking distance. And lots great places to visit from as close as walking distance to reasonable UBER distance... Cirque de Sole', Jazz Festival (in July), museums, botanical gardens, and more. Wow. We were concerned about parking, but owners had great recommendation that was a 1-2 minute walk and reasonably priced for an major city, (bring some Cdn cash, they don't accept credit cards or US $). Frederique was very responsive to questions and concerns. Only thing I would have preferred different... this is a third-floor walkup, so a bunch of steps are involved. As Frederique says, this is old Montreal. We are from NH and NY and hadn’t been to Montreal since the 80's and are bi-lingually challenged. Despite our linguistic concerns, everyone we met went out of their way to be nice and helpful. Some previous VRBO's we stayed at are underwhelming to say the least. This property is a winner IMHO!
Exceptional Apt in Plateau Mont-Royal
We had an exceptional experience staying at this property. We had everything we needed and had a fantastic experience from check in to check out. The apartment itself is stylish, spacious, and well kept. The neighborhood is outstanding and the location is ideal. Superb communication throughout the process before, during , and after our stay with near effortless check in and out. We would highly recommend this property to others and hope to come back again another time.
Four Women and the Perfect Homeaway
The apartment was lovely including the balcony. Bathrooms were new and modern and clean. It was in the most charming neighbourhod to walk around and explore. Groceries with lots of organic food a block away. Parking spot made available around the corner at a very reasonable rate. Owners were professional and friendly. Was a wonderful stay and we'd definitely book there again on our next trip.
We had a lovely stay at this apartment! The check-in process was seamless, and the hosts were accessible throughout the weekend. The apartment itself was clean, spacious and well decorated. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone staying in Montreal with a group.
Beautiful apartment. Perfect location. Lots of great restaurants in the area. Close to metro and public transportation. Lovely terrace! Would definitely stay here again.
My family (7 of us) had such a beautiful stay. The house is in a perfect location, clean, comfortable and exactly as advertised. We enjoyed coffee and wine on the terrace. The hosts are super friendly and helpful. They accommodated all of our requests quickly and with no hesitation. I would book again in a heart beat!!
