Lovely House with Great Decor
We stayed here for 3 nights and loved the house. The house is very well maintain with great decor; the house owners have great taste! The price was well worth it and we would definitely stay here again.
Two things to flag though:
1) the listing says 5 bedrooms but it's only 4 bedrooms on the second floor and a futon (Hide-A-Bed) in the basement. I don't consider the basement a 5th bedroom. The listing also says Queen size bedrooms but they felt much smaller (both width and length). My wife is 5' 5 and her feet were sticking off the bed. Not sure if this a Canadian size thing or if the beds are smaller than Queen.
2) As other reviews said, the AC unit is on the second floor so it gets really warm on the first floor. We had all windows and doors closed but felt very warm and sweaty. There is no fan and with the AC not being strong enough, we eventually had to open the windows while sitting and playing board games on the first floor. There are bugs in the area so opening windows isn't ideal but that was our best option. I would recommend bring a portal fan or two if you can.
All in all, very nice place and I would highly recommend if you can get past the two flags above.
Canada, eh...Great home
I came to visit Montreal with a group of friends & family and we loved this house. Looks small from the front but once you are inside you couldn't believe all the space! It is a beautiful modern home in a quiet neighborhood. We stayed on a beautiful weekend, a dip in pool was a nice touch. It was only 20 mins away from all the action in Montreal. Only downfall is that there is only one shower. Since I went with all women, well you can only imagine lol but overall it was a great stay and recommend anyone to stay here who would like to visit Canada. Thank you Tom & thank the wifey. for me for letting us stay in your home. :)
It was not impressive ...
The house was decent . But the ac was horrible making it very uncomfortable with more than 3 people inside . The pool is supposed to be ready to use in June and was a heavy influence for renting this property, unfortunately it wasn't and nothing was said to us , having to find out when we showed up to the property. There was also minor hazards around the house that even caused minor cuts to two people from our party. Was not a great experience. Would not recommend.
We already apologize for the pool as we had problem starting it for the new season. I should've warm you prior to arrival. Sorry for that
AC....If you would've read the house rules in the information booklet, you would've known that windows and patio door needs to stay close in order to get the AC to cool the space.
About the minor hazards, just to remind you that we have 3 little kids at home and our home is pretty safe we never and incidents ! I
f you are talking about the canevas that felt on the floor and broke candles, I know it was caused by a draft of air as you left the window open during a windy day!
To finish, as people are going to read this review and find out that all others were 5 stars and yours the only one with one, don't you think that this indicates, at the end, problem was probably the guests and not the house.
Maybe consider traveling in hotels next time ?
The house was spacious and in a nice neighborhood, had a great outdoor deck with a nice grill and hot tub. Owner was helpful and easy going. House was further than advertised from downtown Montreal but not by much (approx 25 minutes). Was overall a great experience
Quiet, Clean & Amazing
We are so lucky to have found this place and would HIGHLY recommend to anyone visiting Montreal!! The house is immaculate and tastefully decorated. The outdoor space is unbelievable.... Pool, hot tub, kids climbing structure, multi level patios to enjoy the shaded back yard. I would love to recreate the yard at my place:). Tom was great to deal with , very prompt communication before and during our stay. Wish we could of stayed longer. We will definitely be staying here again during our next visit to Montreal!!
