“From start to finish my time at Jean-Pierre and Isabelle’s flat in Montreal was nothing but perfect. As a native Montrealer I was thrilled to have the opportunity to stay in the best location in the city (the plateau) for 6 weeks. Jean-Pierre and Isabelle’s flat is walking distance from the best parts of Montreal; delicious restaurants, chic boutiques, cute cafes -- not to mention a stone's throw from the metro links, grocery stores, outdoor swimming pools, large parks and the beating heart of downtown. Jean-Pierre and Isabelle also provided a guide of their favorite things in the neighbourhood (most of which I tried!) making you feel at home and integrated in the community. The flat itself is beautifully decorated and spacious; a contemporary brownstone with a modern twist - very Montreal. The flat is filled with great natural light throughout the day, beautiful houseplants, many personal touches, everything you could need for cooking, and ample outdoor space to relax. Since I was working from Montreal I particularly enjoyed the separate office space with a big desk, good light and a balcony. Communication before, during and after my stay was easy with Jean-Pierre and Isabelle.They are such gracious hosts. I can’t say enough good things about their flat (I didn’t want to leave!); anyone would be lucky to stay here and I hope to house swap with them again in the future! ”

L'appartement est situé dans le quartier fort connu de Montréal, le Plateau Mont-Royal. Ce quartier, situé à 5 minutes du centre-ville et du Quartier des spectacles, est reconnu depuis quelques années comme l’un des principaux lieux culturels et artistiques du Québec et du Canada. Il a d'ailleurs été consacré, à l'automne 2005, comme l'endroit le plus créatif du Canada par une étude du groupe Hill Stratégies Recherche. On y trouve de nombreuses boutiques spécialisées ou de designers, des théâtres de grande réputation, des bars, des restaurants et des cafés colorés. Dans ce quartier se croisent intellectuels et artistes dans une ambiance conviviale et chaleureuse. Le condo est situé sur une rue tranquille à proximité du Parc Lafontaine.

Jean-Pierre's reviewsAs a host (9)
“We had 10 lovely days at the appartment of Isabelle and Jean Pierre : very nicely decorated, cosy, and so functional with everything you need; organised to make us feel at home! The communication with the hosts was easy friendly and their advices were extremely appreciated. ”
“Isabelle and Jean-Pierre are fabulous hosts. They were so kind and generous with us. The surprise gifts were such a thoughtful and welcome gesture and all communication with Isabelle was easy and thorough. We felt warm and welcomed. Their home is a total delight, so nice and comfortable with very nice surroundings. The location of apartment is ideal, vibrate local area and very easy commute to the best Montreal attractions. We cannot recommend it enough! Thank you very much for your hospitality! ”
“Let me preface this review by saying that one of the side benefits of Love Home Swap is that you can arrange a vacation for a family member or a friend. This is how we came to exchange homes with Jean-Pierre. My niece and her husband, who live in Chicago, are big fans of Canada and all things French. They were delighted to be able to spend 3 weeks this summer in jean-Pierre's apartment with their two young children. And Jean Pierre was extremely helpful in making sure they had everything they needed. What follows is her review: We had an amazing three weeks in Jean-Pierre's flat this summer. the location is amazing and our children (ages 2 and 5) loved the easy access to many of the beautiful parks of Le Plateau, and attempting to taste every croissant in the neighborhood. The flat is perfect, full of light and beautiful plants, very peaceful and relaxed. And of course Montreal is a beautiful city. We're already dreaming of visiting again.”
“This was a perfect place to stay in an ideal location in Montreal. It was easy to walk or uBEr to any of the tourist attractions. The neighborhood is beautiful, with historic buildings and several parks.. There were many options for eating out in the area, as well. The flat is on the third floor with stairs, but we were warned in advance, and there were no issues. The flat is light, bright, spacious, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen and bathroom are remodeled and there are beautiful hardwood floors, and plenty of detailed moldings to add to the charm. We happened to arrive during a heatwave, so it was a little warm without AC, but that it to be expected in the circumstances. Jeanne-Pierre and Isabelle were great communicators and lovely hosts, though we did not meet. We hope to be able to meet them in our location, in the future. ”
“If Jean-Pierre and Isabelle contact you to do a swap, say yes!!! We did a 3 month direct swap and we loved the time we spent at their house. The house is really beautiful and is equipped with absolutely everything you need. The neighborhood is lovely full of shops, all you may need is just around the corner. Montreal is a city worth to see, we feel really lucky to have been able to see and feel the sens of community this multicultural city has. All the people we meet were absolutely outstanding, helpful, warm and happy. Isabelle sent us a guide of the area with some special little secret places to see and do, it was very helpful. Our place was perfect upon our arrival, they were very kind and left some presents for us ;) We would love to return one day!”
“Nous avons passé un séjour parfait chez Jean-Pierre et Isabelle. L'appartement est situé sur Le Plateau, à proximité de toutes les commodités (même d'un centre pour jeunes à 5mns à pieds, super pour notre ado qui y a passé une soirée). L'appartement est très cosy, superbement décoré, très pratique (quel bonheur cette cuisine si bien équipée). Et du début à la fin, Isabelle et Jean-Pierre ont été d'une grande gentillesse et précision dans la communication. Merci à tous les deux pour votre accueil qui a fait de notre séjour à Montreal un grand bonheur. Valerie, Dominique et Nemo ”
“We had a magical stay at Jean-Pierre + Isabelle's fantastic house. They could not have been more accommodating (so many great recommendations) and gracious. We arrived to find the place in perfect condition (including incredibly thoughtful holiday gifts for our kids). Montreal is an amazing city and this place is the perfect launching-pad for all of your explorations. It was also a huge bonus to have the exclusive use of a dedicated indoor garage (there was LOTS of snow). These are wonderful hosts with whom we hope to remain in touch for future swaps. SIX STARS!! ”
“Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de ce séjour dans la beauté de l'automne du Québec. Nous avons été enchantées de notre logement et de tous ce qui l'entourait. Calme, confort, accueil chaleureux, tout était parfait.”
