  • Description


    In 2016 and 2017 I stayed in close to 30 rentals, since I came to Montreal once a month :) and fell in love with the city.

    Finally in 2018 I bought an old house from a lady who had lived there since 1945!! It is full of character and ready for lots of love...

    I have a young family with a cute and energetic 3 and 4 year old boy and girl :)

    In terms of Montreal as a city it is rich with parks, museums, concerts, festivals, cultural projects, restaurants, Graffiti! Haha I like to call it the "Berlin" of Canada, very artsy, hipster and European vibe.

    The house is Help , with bike paths that will take you to the Old Port in 25minutes door-to-door

    I am an avid traveller, having travelled 5 times to Europe just in the last year. Born and raised in Canada though, I am a true Canadian and can help you understand our unique culture and way of life :)

    My partner is from Poland and will add a european flair lol as well as some delicious cooking!

    In terms of practical skills - I renovate houses for a living, and I will teach you the tricks of the trade as you help me on this project.
