Our old-fashioned 3 ½ (one bedroom) with 2 balconies (one shared, one private) hosts a
television set (no cable), a DVD player, a computer, a washer and dryer, and a bike rack in the (shared) backyard. There is a window in every room, making the apartment sunny. Our neighbours are quiet but young.
Located in the Plateau Mont-Royal, our apartment is close to several bus lines, subway stations and bike renting stands (Bixi), as well as three grocery stores, a few fruit and vegetable markets, bakeries, a butcher shop, a cheese shop, a drugstore, several parks and bars, all within 5 min. walk (most of which are located on the well-known and lively Mont-Royal street)
We are a young couple taking a break from university to visit Vancouver. We love the outdoors so it seemed like a good choice. I am in software engineering at the École Polytechnique de Montréal whereas she is studying environmental science and sociology at McGill University. We are also artists : I play music (piano, guitar) and she is into visual arts (painting, drawing, sculpting). We're pretty easy going and like meeting new people.
