I'm 33 and live with my husband. We will be going away a lot for work (art installations) and would like to rent our cool downtown plateau loft while we are not here.
Nous n'avons pas eu la chance de rencontrer Emily mais lorsque nous avons eu besoin de conseil elle a répondu de suite à nos e-mail. Le loft est trés spacieux, conforme en tout point avec la description. La cuisine est trés bien équipée, les chambres sont plutôt grandes et nous avons trés bien dormis.par contre si vous prévoyez de partir pour vous reposer au calme ce n'est pas l'endroit indiqué car il y a des cours dans les lofts voisins tôt le matin et des répet d'heavy-métal ou rock le soir. Nous avons utilisé les platines et pioché dans la collection de vinyls mise à disposition, un vrai plaisir:) Il y a pas mal de livre d'art pour moi c'est un plus:) Je recommande vraiment ce lieu en plein coeur du plateau pour vivre Montreal comme un local.
Emily's loft is indeed huge and a wonderful place to stay while in Montreal. The location is perfect for exploring the Plateau, Mile End, or Mont Royal Park. It's only a 15 minute walk from downtown - helpful since I was attending a conference downtown. It's already cold in Montreal but the loft was warm and everything is clean and easy to use. Excellent place to stay and highly recommended.
My friend and I stayed at Emily's loft for two weeks in November 2013 while doing work placements. We loved everything about our stay. The place was beautiful, uniquely decorated, very clean, and extremely spacious. It is in a perfect location - walking distance to anything you could need ranging from fun bars, to excellent restaurants, to funky coffee shops. Emily was a fantastic host and very good about getting in touch during booking/during our stay.
The only tiny downside was that the walls are pretty thin so you can hear the neighbours talking, playing their music, etc. We were not home much and tended to stay up late because we were busy exploring the city, so this wasn't really an issue for us. However, I imagine it could be bothersome if you enjoy having quiet time in the evenings.
Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend staying here! Staying at Emily's loft made our stay in Montreal an incredible and very memorable experience. I would definitely come back to stay here again. Thanks!
Emily's Loft was great. A great space full of character and charm. We booked at the last minute and Emily was super accommodating, very communicative and helpful. The place was clean, comfortable, with a nice kitchen - over all a super cool urban loft in a great location. Thanks for the stay!
This is a most fantastic place to stay. The area buzzes, all facilities are close by, and best of all. downstairs is the most wonderful little cafe - Chez Nouri - where Nouri makes the most wonderful breakfasts and the meaning of life (amongst other things) is discussed. After one of his breakfasts you can deal with anything that Montreal dishes out.
The loft itself is amazing - huge, comfy, with a well-set up kitchen, with central heating that makes the place incredibly cosy even when it threatens to snow outside.
We loved our stay there - thanks so much Emily. We will be back!
Le loft est incroyable, très grand et plein d'objets insolites, drôles, remarquables en tous points. La cuisine est très pratique. Les murs sont fins en effet, mais comme j'étais prévenue par les commentaires précédents, j'avais des boules quiès et j'ai vraiment très bien dormi; par ailleurs, si l'immeuble est étonnant à première vue, l'ambiance y est très sympa.
Le loft est très bien placé entre les stations de métro Sherbrooke et Saint Laurent, entre le Miles End et le Plateau, au milieu de restaurants, bars, boutiques, cafés cosys, librairies, tous accessibles à pied.
J'ai adoré mon séjour et serais prête à y retourner très vite.
The loft was perfect for our family of four including a toddler. We enjoyed the attractive, fun, comfortable decor and appreciated the very functional kitchen and dining area. We found the loft clean and well maintained but full of character. The only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is as an alert to a draw-back for some; occasional noisy musician neighbors and raucous late-night weekend street noise. But we loved the loft and it helped make our long weekend vacation enjoyable for all.
Wow! The perfect home away from home while traveling! Emily's place is spacious and airy (the windows are fantastic!) while still managing to be cozy and comfortable. The cool artwork throughout and the well-designed space make it a design-geek's perfect holiday home. The location is great - walking distance or a quick metro ride to everywhere I wanted to explore. Lots of restaurants and plenty of live music venues nearby, too. Though with the amazing record collection and welcoming lounge chair, spending an evening in was a perfectly lovely option, too.
If I come back to Montreal I will definitely reach out to Emily in hopes of staying there again, and have recommended her place to friends who travel to Montreal often. It was such a welcoming, beautiful space I truly didn't want to leave.
We ended up having to cancel extremely last minute, but Emily was totally understanding and very nice to deal with. The building itself feels a little rough, but the loft was wonderful. Full of character, but if you are expecting a hotel experience, you should probably look somewhere else. Amazing record collection, and a really neat part of town. If you're looking to stay somewhere and live like a Montrealer, this is the place. Fannypack toting tourists need not stay here :)
This loft is absolutely amazing, exactly as pictured/described. Lots of room and in a great area. We walked most places but the metro is conveniently located nearby if you need it. Did not meet Emily but check-in went smoothly and her instructions were very easy to follow. I stayed with just my boyfriend, but there is plenty of space if you were travelling with a larger group.
Excellent guests, I couldn't be happier. :)
Not much to say about these two talented cuties! :)
Lovable, straight forward, clean thinking.
Treated the house as their own home and hope to meet them again in the future!
Keep up the good work! :)
What a friendly couple and nice people. Emily and Mike stayed in my place for their honeymoon, such a special time. Artistic view with an appriciation of old together with modernity those are the words we had in common. Hope to meet them again in the future. Always welcome to the house...
I would like to express my happiness for Emily. She was a very gently client. She is a person that you have in your heart from the first moment.
I wish always to have such clients as her.
As a host , I would highly recommend Emily and Michael to stay as quest and rate them as 5 STAR guests. Upon arrival , they were respectful, quite and very understanding with my initial wireless internet delay, 3 weeks later, upon departure they left my 2 bdrm / 2 bath loft immaculate, and are very gracious quests. Thank you for choosing to stay and hope you will come again. Maria & Dalia
Emily and her husband were very friendly and communicative guests! They're highly recommended.
Emily stayed a second time and was open and communicative about her travel plans and needs. Happy to accomodate her extended stay and she's welcome back anytime!
Emily was great. I mean, heck, she left flowers for my house!
Fantastic guest! A treat to have stay in our house. Great communication, and they she and her partner left the house in spotless condition.
