This place is a bit outside the city and therefore parking is much easier but there isn't much nearby. If you are a large group and/or on a tight budget this would be a good option. It also has air conditioning which can be a big plus. The owner is also good at responding to emails. There is also a digital entry which is very convenient.
There are a couple negatives. The city happened to be going door to door to inspect smoke detectors and the two detectors weren't functional - I let the owner know so this is hopefully not the case now. There also is no exhaust fan in the bathroom and not many electrical outlets - some were blocked by furniture as was the front balcony.
The fridge (and cupboards) had a bunch of old food in it - I was able to throw out the stuff that had started smelling but had to leave some because the garbage can outside was completely full. They also made the beds without a top sheet - only a bottom sheet and blanket - a bit odd.
We arrived after a two hour trip from Ottawa and after a short wait were let into our three bedroom condo. The rooms in the condo offer lots of space with a large lounge area where you can sit and relax. The decor of the apartment is shabby chic so may not be to your taste if you like modern surroundings but we liked it. There is a balcony to the front and rear of the property which offers plenty of space to sit outside, we liked this as the weather was exceptionally warm whilst we stayed in Montreal. The local Metroplus supermarket is a five minute drive away and wow what a brilliant place to buy fresh seafood, steak, bread everything you need, we ate in three nights as we couldn't find any local restaurants that looked that appealing. The condo is situated ten minutes walk from the underground into the city and we walked the 30 minutes to the Olympic park as the $20 parking at the park put us off. All in all a good stay, the only criticism I would have is that there are very few cups and glasses and some of the cups were chipped, there was also very few towels, I had to wash the towels as they were a little dirty and we had to ask for hand towels, would also suggest a few more essentials like filter coffee and more tourist maps and information.
This was a nice apartment for our family. We were able to cook meals, do laundry, park on the street, go on wi-fi, and walk to the metro. Li was very helpful, returning calls immediately and answering questions. The home was brightly painted and the beds comfortable. Nice coffee maker, fridge and plenty of cooking supplies. Wi-fi was great. Not fancy, but very comfortable. There is one flight of stairs. We walked home from the metro late at night and felt safe.
