Nihao, welcome, bonjour to our charming basement apartment, we are fully furnished, located 20 minutes driving from Montreal Downtown, we have WIFI, stove, microwave, fridge, washer/dryer, parking.
Yibing's home was about 30 minutes outside of central Montreal by car. The house itself had all the basic amenities necessary for a short stay, as well as laundry, which was a nice plus. Unfortunately, when we arrived the space itself wasn't very clean - the toilet was dirty, floors dusty, and the bed linens and towels had hair and seemed used. We understand that there was a guest before us, but its important to have enough clean items available for new guests. Another issue was with communication. We were driving a long way (6+ hrs) with our toddler so requested specific check in and check out times which Yibing agreed to. This was the biggest reason we booked to begin with. The week before our arrival, Yibing explained she had another guest and could no longer accommodate our check in time. This completely changed our plans but we still made it work. On our last day, Yibing approached us about checking out before our agreed upon time because yet again, she had booked another guest. This was twice now that we were being asked to change plans that were always agreed upon. This caused for an extremely uncomfortable and stressful situation. All this wouldn't have been half as bad if it wasn't for the fact that we were traveling with our baby, and the entire experience made our visit stressful.
Yibing's apartment was quiet and cozy, which is exactly what we were looking for. We need somewhere quiet to stay after a day of driving home, and before another day of driving. It has all the essentials (bedroom, living room, washroom, a kitchen, etc) and is in a quiet residential neighbourhood surrounded by schools, parks etc.
