Enjoy the countryside in the middle of Montréal (Plateau).

Our beautiful and comfortable 3-BDR house is in the centre of Montreal city life and universe! Located a 4-min walk away from Mont-Royal metro station, at the heart of Le Plateau family-friendly neighborhood, you will enjoy both the comfort of a cottage and the excitement of urban life. You will be one block away from Mont-Royal avenue, with all possible kinds of shops for groceries (fancy bakeries, cheesemakers, fish market, butchers and several supermarkets), book stores, clothing. Take a run or play tennis in Parc Lafontaine (5-min walk), take a swim at the Boyer public swimming pool around the corner (15-seconds walk) or take the bike lanes of Rachel St that will take you to Mont-Royal park ("mountain") or McGill University in 10 minutes.

Our 2,000 sqft house is a one-family unit over 2 floors. The upper floor features 3 bedrooms with 1 queen bed each, 1 "chilling area" (den) with a double futon (convertible sofa), 1 full bathroom (with toilet and bath tub), another 1/2 bath and 1 office. The first floor has a great open plan layout, with a relaxing living room area, a dining area (6-8 seating) and a completely remodeled and fully equipped designer kitchen with a 2-seating island area. There is also 1/2 bath and a fully equipped laundry space.

Another jewel of the property is the large terrasse (deck) and garden where you will enjoy the unique summer vibe of Montreal. We provide outdoor chairs and a dining table, gas BBQ, custom outdoor sofa, an Adirondack armchair and a hammock! The garden is very quiet, with beautiful towering trees and opens to a quiet and family-friendly back alley.

The last very unique special jewel is Skippy, our sweet cat who needs a couple of food services per day, follows an open-door policy and always appreciates cuddling.

About Me
We are a family of 4 with two teenagers (Lucas and Julie) and a cat (Skippy). Sylvain is full Professor (Neuroscience) at McGill, and Marion is a Montessori teacher running her own business. We love food, stage arts, travels and more food. We would be very happy to welcome a couple with or without children to take care of our house and cat while we are away. Montreal is the friendliest city in all seasons, with so many things to do and discover. It features a top academic environment, with a vast community of international students and academic staff. It is easy to get around in French or English.
