Lovely home from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The house is full of character and very comfortable. Joann left everything we required for our stay. We particularly enjoyed the garden with its pool, and the setting was gorgeous, only a few minutes walk from the national park and backing on to a park with a small boating lake. The shops were close by and with everything that we needed. It was easy to drive to Montreal about 40 minutes away. Highly recommended. Pat (Nottingham)

Hip and cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house far surpassed our expectations !!..

The overall charm and beauty of the house are not captured in the pictures, you must see it in person to appreciate it's true beauty . It was a true getaway that not only had charm on the inside but the outside was just as wonderful. Joann was extremely friendly and we had a fantastic time on our vacation staying at her gypsie artist house.

Great getaway and close to all

Joann's place is super comfy and perfect for a jaunt to Montreal. Great pool, beautiful landscaping and a fantastic park behind the property truly make this a sublime getaway.

Perfect retreat in quiet, beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful house for a week in early April. It was one of our best experiences in a VRBO property, and we have been using VRBO for many years. The location is residential; it is a quiet, beautiful area with easy access for excursions into Montreal or to Quebec City. It is located only a few minutes from the freeway and from services in Sainte Julie. The home is beautifully decorated, with art, sculpture, and up-to-date furnishings. It seems that the home has been lovingly renovated, with wooden floors, contemporary fixtures, and an open, inviting layout. The home has much personality and reflects the imagination and care of its owner. There are many windows with a view of a beautiful backyard and green space with water; we did not get to use the pool because the weather was still wintry, but outdoor amenities include the pool, a large deck with a hammock and dining table, and other seating in the yard beyond. The kitchen is fully furnished, with an espresso maker, a large refrigerator, a dishwasher, and all the cookware and flatware one could ever want. The bedrooms are large and airy; the beds are very comfortable, with soft linens and warm comforters. There are two bathrooms, one in the master bedroom, with a double sink and freestanding tub. The other has a shower and connects to laundry facilities. All supplies are readily available; for our food we visited an IGA only about 10 minutes away. While we were there, we had snowstorms; plowing in the neighborhood was done early in the day, and we had absolutely no trouble getting around. The home was so comfortable that we were reluctant to leave it. Joann was a perfect hostess; the home was in pristine condition when we arrived, and without a doubt we will stay there again. This is a retreat, a place where you can rest, relax, and release stress. It is the kind of place where you can imagine yourself living. We have been hoping to find a VRBO in Sainte Julie for several years, and we were thrilled to have a chance to stay in Joann's beautiful home.

relax, enjoy, get inspired

  • 5 of 5

The owner is easy to work with, every single item in the house seems to be a piece of art. The nearby ( 3 minute walking distance ) park with playgrounds was just one of many appreciated highlights for my kids. The private pool in the backyard was a huge plus as well. Our family of 5 felt welcome and really like at home away from home. We will be back! Thanks Joann!

The house is located in a suburb city in a rural area beside the St Bruno mountain , little pond, children playground and tennis. There is ski and cross country skiing at 5 minutes. There is ice skating on the little lake behind. Walk in the mountain, Private pool, Montreal with lot of festivals at 30 minutes. Quebec city at 2 hours. St-Laurent river and Richelieu offer wonderful scenic drives and typical old houses.
