You need a weekend to relax, but don’t want to drive or fly long hours? Being a creative mom whose passion for travel drives her throughout, I thought there must be some great Airbnb for rent on the island of Montreal, the décor of which would be reminiscent of a travel destination. So these are the 5 Airbnb I’ve unearthed for you for a family weekend that will make you feel like you’re somewhere else.
Destination Beverly Hills with this 3-story townhouse that has what all children love: a grand spiral staircase in addition to a lounge area on the mezzanine where it’s more than enjoyable to play with your family. Can accommodate up to 6 people, this Venice Beach, California-inspired hideaway is located in the Petite-Bourgogne district, a pretty and vibrant neighborhood along the Lachine Canal. At a walking distance from Atwater Market and several cafes and restaurants including Grinder, September surf café and the renowned Joe Beef, the location of this townhouse allows you to enjoy the pleasures of gastronomy, either by ordering take-out or preparing a good meal with the delicious purchases made at the market. We particularly like the décor where raw and organic materials unite in a vast, clean and invigorating space, giving the impression that the Beverly Hills sun is plummeting with large rays.

Destination New York with this 2-story penthouse located in a modernized 1898 heritage building reminiscent of those in the Soho neighborhood. With a capacity of up to 6 people, the large spaces and high ceilings of the rental give the walls the look of oversized white canvases on which are highlighted beautiful photos in black and white. It almost feels like an art gallery that hosts the exhibition of a trendy photographer. Located in the heart of Old Montreal, this penthouse is within walking distance of the Place D’Armes subway, the Palais Des Congrès, Place des Arts, and several restaurants and cafes. Children will obviously like the spiral staircase, but also they’ll have plenty of space to play hide and seek. You’ll love snuggling up as a family on the huge designer sofa to listen to the best Netflix series (yes! the Netflix subscription is included).

This condo is a clash between modern, industrial, classic, rustic, and even country styles. The layout, however, is reminiscent of the offices of major Silicon Valley companies with a playing areas available to employees. So an eclectic version of Silicon Valley destination in this 5-bedroom condo facing the marina in Old Montreal, a 2-minute walk from Place Jacques Cartier, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Montreal’s best spa: the BOTA BOTA. In winter, it is possible to skate close to the St. Lawrence River on an ice rink set up for the winter season. What the kids will love about this condo: the pool table, the babyfoot table, the bowling game, and even arcade games. What parents like: the strategic location and the feeling of being in a world that reminds them of their youthful years.

Destination Tuscany with this charming 3 bedroom on a 2-story apartment located in Old Montreal, a short walk from the Latin Quarter and the Port of Montreal. Perhaps the owners were inspired by this neighborhood to give the place this little something Italian with patterned tiles, stone, brick and lime walls, old rustic wooden floors, and country furnishings. Children and parents alike will certainly love the private courtyard, but above all, the sauna will make you feel on the Adriatic Sea on a hot summer day.

Loft with River Views
Destination Paris with this loft located in Old Montreal facing the river. Why Paris? Because in Paris, the apartments in the roofs are what makes it charming! However there, we must combine with little space while this loft is like an apartment in Paris 2.0 that combines space and charm. Also, in Paris, there are very old buildings, and this loft is built in the roof of one of the oldest buildings in Montreal. Interesting isn’t it? Parents will love the view of the beautiful sunsets and the strategic location near restaurants, cafes, and shops. Children will certainly love the feeling of sleeping in a roof, the babyfoot table, and the large bed behind the red curtains.
