Un logement bien agréable
Un environnement proche bien agréable et vert, dans une rue calme.
Dan était aux petits soins à notre arrivée et nous a laisser son logement complet avec une grande confiance, n'hésitant pas à nous dire que nous étions les bienvenus à utiliser tout ce dont nous avions besoin et trouvions chez eux!
Merci pour l'accueil Dan!
Disappointing and NOT as advertised!
Dan is a nice guy, always available and the place was very inexpensive.
Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. There were a variety of issues with the apartment. The photos of the apartment had been staged: many pieces of furniture and the cleanliness advertised were not accurate. The shower is moldy and the apartment very dusty.
Dan shared with us that he actually lives there, so it appeared that he had moved out to rent to us. This perception was supported by the open and full dirty clothes hamper, full closets, bathroom shelves full with personal items, and his son’s toys stacked in several places.
On the exterior, there was a brick missing on the courtyard steps and the landscaping was poorly maintained. The entrance rail and door bell were both broken.
Inside, the bathroom window that was under repair was covered with plastic, the rear balcony door would not fully close, a set of blinds in the bedroom did not open/close, there was an uncovered electrical outlet in the bedroom, and 2 lights in the living room did not work. While it advertised having air-conditioning, only the living room had a unit and it was so poorly installed that a gap to the outside existed. Finally, there was no cable TV as advertised, only Netflix.
We were extremely disappointed! We have never before read positive reviews only to find a property in such poor condition!
Wow, not sure where to begin. We have always had nothing but positive reviews and we earn those reviews through maintaining a clean and comfortable home with as many amenities as possible.
The pictures were taken by myself, with a regular camera and put directly on the website without any manipulation. Following your review we checked the bathroom for mold, as this is very serious, but were unable to find any. Regarding the dustiness you reported, we wipe all surfaces, sweep and mop before every guest. We have not lived here for 2 years, but we do make personal items available to our guests ranging from toilet paper to shampoo, shower gel, hair gel, cream; these are located on the bathroom shelves. The toys are intended to accommodate families with children and are neatly stored in a play box. We make 4 to 8 drawers per room as well as standing closets available to our guests, while we keep some personal clothing in the main closets; it was after all our home. There were indeed some bed linens from the previous guests in the laundry hamper and we do apologize for that; not usually the case.
Regarding the structural issues you mention, as you can imagine, sometimes things get broken and we do our best to fix them; so the brick is now firmly glued back in the courtyard, the rail is no longer wobbly, the plastic on the bathroom window only covered the end facing the shower, was installed temporarily to protect the wooden frame prior to it being lacquered, did not prevent usage of the window and has been removed, and the doorbell seems to have been knocked off at some point during your stay; we managed to find it in the bushes.
The 12,000BTU AC is located in the living room and keeps the house very cool on even the hottest days; if it was too hot for you we have window ACs available for every room; you just had to ask. :)
As stated clearly on the website we offer Netflix, YouTube and various other streaming services to keep you busy while indoors – in our experience there is very little guest demand for local French news.
Lastly, regarding landscaping we mow the lawn as needed and we regularly plant flowers. That being said, temperatures have been less than conducive to a rich garden this summer; we are sorry the landscaping was not up to your expectations.
As I mentioned, this is our ancestral home, and we take great pride in maintaining it not just for ourselves but for you, our guests.
Dan, Ana and Lex
What a great location!
We really enjoyed our stay at Dan’s condo in Montreal. The house was very clean and comfortable … great feather pillows on the bed. There is a beautiful courtyard and back balcony offering an experience of the quiet outdoors, even in the middle of the city. It is a short walk to Monkland bakeries and restaurants where we found some of the best pastries and dinners that we’ve ever experienced. We would highly recommend staying in this beautiful condo!
Great location Excellent host
The apartment was in a wonderful location 3 blocks in either direction from the metro and a 10 minute drive without traffic 20 with traffic from Old Montreal. There were restaurants and stores 1.5 blocks in either direction and ample parking. Couldn't be more pleased with the location.
Dan himself is very personable and helpful. He can be there within minutes if needed. He is an excellent host and the apartment was very comfortable.
I definitely recommend this listing
