Big sunny two bedrooms two bathrooms, fully equipped, with an amazing view. Best location, right in front of the Intercontinental. Steps away from all the best restaurants/bars, 30 seconds away from the convention center (view from living room ;-)) ; steps away from all the festivals (Jazz, Just for Laughs, etc); and a 2 min walk to Old Montréal.
Please treat the apartment as you would your own ;-)
Please treat the apt as if it were yours (particularly it being often sheared with family members when are in Montreal). We like our neighbourgs - and the building's team - do act respectfully :-)
Please give me an hour "heads up".
Important : Do note this is a non-smoking building.
Important also :Noise in hallways/balcony or in common areas must be kept to a minimum - pls. And no pets are allowed.
Just common sense pls.
The people working there work very hard, I insist on not putting undue hardship on them.
If you need anything or if you were to encounter any problems - pls contact me rather than give more work to the building staff - they are all really nice/cool -last thing i want is to have then do extra work and be inconvenienced. I don't always rent the the whole apartment - that being said if I do I will be available 24/7.
I believe I am really cool and nice host, but this is very important to me. Sure you can understand :-)
P.S.: Mutual trust is very important to me. I am quite careful screening guests. I ask questions about groups; purpose of trip in Montreal, etc. More so if new members and/or guests with no comments. I typically follow-up with phone call (number listed account); personally hand key to person having made the reservation.
You'll see I am a really nice/relax host - or so I've been told anyway ;-). But this is really important to me.
Again - Sure you understand :-)
P.s.: in addition to giving me an ETA - I would you please ask you to give me an hour heads up prior to your arrival (I fully understand flight delays and al - just personally need to make sure I can ensure smooth check-in).
