False impression, change in price and description, pretty "lived-in" & dirty
We booked this place specifically because it advertised a pool. We thought at worst case it was shared with the other apartments. No pool. After expressing disappointment to owner's son we saw that the description was changed on VRBO and the price lowered. It is a convenient place and could be so charming but we found the place too "lived in". Personal items were everywhere. The place was not super clean - it appeared so when we walked in but in the closets, drawers, and cabinets; not so much. We left the unit cleaner than we found it, but we were still charged the full cleaning price. The main shower still had used bottles of shampoo & body wash with the caps off. That leads me to believe the shower and ??? was not cleaned before we arrived. We had to wash dishes before using them and found the kitchen to be a bit understocked, especially if you wish to cook and serve family meals. Downstairs shower leaked. Only one air conditioner wall unit which was not adequate or clean. The street side bedroom window was broken as were the shades. Tried to negotiate with owners and hoped for a bit of a refund to no avail. No response what-so-ever. Needs elbow grease to polish up and maintenance. Would also be nice if there were instructions regarding waste disposal, how to work the disposal and when trash day was. Otherwise - this place was convenient and it could be so very charming. Has so much potential to be an awesome place to stay.
Modern decor, beautiful furnishings, comfortable stay
Joanna was very response and answered all our queries promptly.
The property is tastefully decorated with modern furnishings.
Kitchen had lots of pots, pans, cups, utensils a large fridge a range.
Deck - Beautiful covered deck with large seating area, grill (we did not use)
Easy to take public transport to go to Montreal.
Beds were comfortable and enough space for our group of 8.
Great experience overall !!
Overall nice lots of good some minor issues
Overall the place was nice.
Details on website a bit misleading as stated 4 bedroom sleeps 12.
The 4th bedroom is expected to be the living/dining area which would
be hard pressed to accommodate two queen blow up beds as mentioned.
There is a very nice couch there on which me son bedded.
Might be better if there was a pullout couch there and one could state
sleeps 10 or perhaps add another blowup queen matress on the lower level
and then could state sleeps 12. I guess need to bring own matresses.
The home was well furnish and decorated. The kitchen was awesome lots of cabinets
more than enough plates, etc pots & pans and utensils. Could use a blender and electric beater.
But, even had spices and oils.
Large deck had outside furniture and table for eating as well as bench seating around for entertaining
Yard was nice with many plants and flowers.
There was wifi but, of three TVs only one had an antenna connection that got one channel which often lost signal.
We had chrome cast for two of the TV's that we had happened to bring along and availed ourselves of Netflix and You Tube
streaming through our phones which projected on to the TV sets.
Jacuzzi drain stopper did not work so we used a 10 pound dumbbell we had available to hold it down.
Drain stopper in upper level wash sink did not work either.
Mirrored closet door in upper level restroom also needs adjustment as it was unable to close.
I adjusted slats to one bedroom blinds do that they would lined up correctly as they were quite askew.
Did not like the fact that one could look into the upper level from front balcony entrance or rear deck entrance.
On arrival the dryer had damp towels and sheets in it and washer had wet ones in it. We took care of that.
Dish washer had not been emptied either. The owner apologized for new cleaning person that may not have understood
The neighborhood seemed nice and friendly. There was a sports park 800 meters away which we made use of.
Lots of shopping and eating areas nearby. Parking was right in front of the home off the street.
I would give our stay a B+.
Our stay at Joanna's place was very pleasant. The location is near groceries and many restaurants.
Our stay was pleasant at this place. Joanna was very helpful . She is a great host. No community pool though.
