Description
The Space

A high ceiling, spacious (4,000 sq ft) loft, complete with an open concept, stainless steel kitchen, two dining areas, two living room areas, view of city skyline from bedrooms and greenery view from common area awaits travelling groups of friends for a comfy stay in the beating heart of the city. All accommodations a-go including: new, fresh (clean) bedding, kitchen cook-ware and, even basic groceries, a dish-washer, a washing machine and dryer, big-screen cable TV with internet access, data-bank of movies and shows, as well as, high-speed wireless... the space can fit up to twelve (12) with the use of couches, eight if two per room for the enclosed bedrooms. Located in the festival central on St. Laurent strip with cafe lounges, bars, restos, yoga studios, retail stores etc... The Mountain and surrounding parks is a mere seven minute walk as is Chinatown, Old Montreal, Downtown and St. Denis street. It must be mentioned that there is a nightclub two floors below and music rhythm is audible from 1am to 3am. Due to this, the space is also not zoned for events that may compete with the club such as parties. Contact me for any additional info. Additionally, I occupy the studio located just above the space and share the main front foyer, along with the bathroom with the loft so although you will have the whole space, our paths will inevitably cross. Public Transit: Bus #24, Metro Stations: Sherbrooke and St. Laurent, Three Bixie stands nearby.

Guest Access

Access to the entire loft but the washroom is also used by me when I am around (I have a unit on the floor above the loft).

Interaction with Guests

I give guests all their privacy unless asked to show them around. I have made great friends with some, others I only saw on arrival and departure. It varies and depends on the guests.

The Neighborhood

This is the most centrally located spot - the belly of the beast! You are equally close to the menageries of Montreal nightlife, high brow culture like Place des Arts, nature like the Mount Royal and about five parks, historical ethnic neighbourhoods (China town, little Portugal, little Italy), and the Old Port. All at walking distance - amazing!

Getting Around

Walking. You will get everywhere you want to go in 10 - 30 minutes. Bixi biking is also nice as you can explore the mountain and further neighbourhoods - we have a lot of bikepaths... there are also two metro stations within a 7 min walk each (Sherbrooke on the Orange line and Saint Laurent on the Green)... and there is a bus stop right in front of our front door (#24 I believe). Not to mention an army of taxies that are constantly driving by... As for parking, the lot outside charges about 10$ per day (I am unsure if that is 12 hr or 24 hr rate). There is an indoor lot down the block, the cost is about 30-40$ per day.. but I am not a 100% on this...

Other Things to Note

For a unique Montreal experience shared with a group of your besties - this is the ticket. I must emphasize though, this is not a quiet street and not a quiet building. Families with young children are probably better off finding something more tranquil.

Place's rules
Tidy is always welcome. Respectful of all the property in rooms and in storage. Keeping the noise level down (neighbours can hear ya). No public events such as parties (zoning bylaws as this is in a club district). I have a unit just upstairs so I am readily available should you need anything.

About Pat & Gigi
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
