★☆★ Cubahaus ★☆★
International coliving in Montreal.
Welcome! Come join our community and rent your room in our special home!
CubaHaus started in 2012 by an anthropology student. After coming back to Montreal from 4 years traveling around the world. He decided to find a way to keep his mind traveling while being at home. CubaHaus was born. A place where great minds unite.
WHAT IS CUBAHAUS?
We are a community of international students and young professionals sharing time together. We live in the same building/neighbourhood but in 4 separate apartments. The size of each apartments vary from 3 to 7 bedrooms. (Most of them 4 bedrooms.)
WHATS THE VIBE?
This is a unique living situation you won't get to live anywhere else again. We believe that our community has extra value... your life, sociology and management courses right at home. We want you to become a better person and build skills on both personal and professional aspect. It's a complete experience. It is very important to have a good atmosphere in each apartment. We are like big family and your roommates will be those who listen to your day after you are back home in the evening. We take our studies/work/research seriously and our place is DEFINITELY NOT the place for constant parties. However we like to organize various outings, activities, philosophical debates, climbing mountains, cottage weekends, restaurants, bars, volleyball, football, swimming (there is a free public pool nearby), baking, board games, cooking, play guitar, bowling, running, yoga, BBQ on our amazing terrace in the summer etc.

One of our main criteria for selecting new roommates is cleanliness and tidiness! We will pick a socially weird compulsive cleaner over a cool and fun roommate! Haha! We are half joking but if you're not really into cleaning then please don't write us unless you have a certain budget to enjoy our cleaning service to do your part. We have zero tolerance for unwashed dishes or dirty kitchen table or stove after cooking! We believe that a tidy environment is psychologically healthy. In short if we are dedicating a whole paragraph for this matter so you can guess that it is important to us!
Note #1: We love animals but unfortunately our landlords do not allowed them.
Note #2: Absolutely no smoking in any of the houses.
WHERE ARE WE LOCATED?
We are located in the best area of Montreal! (At least that's what we think!) ;-) We have everything around us. Ste-Catherine, St-Denis and St-Laurent, those 3 streets are in the top 10 most popular street to go out for a drink, eat or go shopping. We are living in front of Parc where there is a Basketball court, a soccer field and ice rink in winter. We are 5 minutes walk from a free indoor public swimming pool. 7 minutes from Place-des-arts where 80% of the major events and festivals in Montreal are happening (Jazz festival, Just-for-laugh festivals, nuit blanche etc). 10 minutes walk to Desjardins Complex shopping mall which is also the central segment of RESO (The world's largest Underground City). 15 minutes to reach China Town or the old port of Montreal... and in a short 30 minutes walk you can reach the top of Mont Royal and admire the beautiful view of the Skyline.
