I want transfer the lease on my large, lovely apartment. It's in the middle of the plateau (St. Denis and Rachel), between Parc Lafontaine and Mont Royal, close to Frite Alors and La Banquise if you crave a late-night snack. It's two streets away from metro Mont-Royal, next to grocery store Rachel-Beri. 10 minutes walk to Segal and 15 minutes to Provigo. It's close to many bike paths (mainly Rachel).
It's perfect for a single person or a couple. I've entertained several times and never gotten any noise complaints. The bedroom is sunny and relaxing, has a large in-built closet space and washer-dryer. There's light and fresh air coming from several directions, and you can catch many glorious sunrises and sunsets. Since it's furnished, you can just roll in with your suitcase and belongings. The couch pulls out into a large double bed.
Its best feature is the shared balcony which comes with a grill (and where you can view said sunsets). The neighbours are very sweet, cool people, who'll interact with you only when you're feeling social.
