Good space in convenient neighborhood but not quite as described and virtually not contact from the host. Except for hearing from Leslie with directions and after sending her an e-mail when checked in, we didn't hear from her again at all during our five night stay. Although there is a toaster, microwave, coffee maker the apartment lacked basic tools such as cutting board, bread knife. place mats for table, paper towels, napkins, etc. Coffee, tea and sugar provided but nothing else. If you are looking to prepare food it will be difficult. No cleaning supplies except dishwasher liquid. There is a washer and a dryer but no supplies. Breakfast is included but not there when we arrived. Leslie emailed she was coming by to leave bagels but we did not need to be there. We recommend all items be in the apartment before guests arrive. If you want to use the outdoor space you will need to sweep yard debris and clean the table and chairs. Although I booked as my husband and me, the sofa bed in the front room was made up which meant we could not use the sofa had we wanted to. The only other cushioned seating was unusable being in the bedroom behind the door. Alright for a night or two but not for a longer stay.
You can't beat the location for the price! There is free street parking right outside the apartment, besides on Wednesdays night for street cleaning. Everything you want to see is within about a 30 minute walk, a 20 minute bike ride, or a $8 uber (we didn't try the metro though! Which is super close.) Also, it's right around the corner from an awesome pedestrian area with countless shops, places to eat, and clubs to dance at. Leslie also did us a favor and let us check in no problem. The keyless entry is super convenient. My sister and I loved it here :)
Leslie's place was the perfect escape for our stay in Montreal! It was so close to everything we wanted to see. Check-in was super simple - love having a keypad instead of a key! And it was the perfect size for our group. Leslie also maintained great communication leading up to (and during) our stay, which is greatly appreciated. Would definitely stay here again.
Leslie's place is a fairly standard apartment. It has a full kitchen with bagels, coffee & tea provided. A very nice touch! It's located only a few block from the metro and easily walkable to Old Montreal. We had very good communication with Leslie and her husband throughout our stay and they made sure we were comfortable.
