Property description

Events of September 11th and United's bankruptcy caused me to take an extended (five-year) furlough from United Airlines' Paris base so I went home to San Diego and started renting my Paris apartment. That was the beginning of my vacation rental business and I never returned to United but I do return to Paris!

This 650 square foot one-bedroom apartment has the privacy of two bedrooms at the cost of a Studio apartment! The living room door closes; and occupants of each room have access to the toilet, bathroom, and kitchen without disturbing the others (important for when you first arrive and jet-lag makes for irregular sleeping hours).
There are extra long twin beds in the bedroom and a very comfortable, double-size, fold-down couch in the living room. (that's where my husband and I always sleep). The bathroom has a big soaking tub and a shower. Like all Paris apartments, the WC is separate from the bathroom so if anyone is taking a long shower or bath, others can still use the toilet.
This fifth-floor condo apartment has a modern elevator big enough for several people and their luggage! The all-glass living room wall opens wide onto a private balcony overlooking center gardens. It sits way off the main street so it's a very quiet location!

The Paris Apartment: There is absolutely no city noise.
The apartment is light and sunny -- with a view of lovely Victorian buildings. There is lot of closet space (rare in Paris) to keep the apartment orderly. There is a full-sized washer and dryer for doing laundry so pack light!
Everything you'll need to cook your own gourmet meals is provided. 'Go French' -- and get fresh food at nearby 'Poncelet', one of the largest daily outdoor markets in Paris. Or if you prefer a US-style grocery store (with peanut butter, cereal, etc.), Galleries Gourmand is also nearby.
My quiet, nicely furnished apartment has everything you'll need for a comfortable vacation, including an extensive library of guide books and maps of the city, metro, and bus system as well as books on culture, language and fiction/non-fiction books centered on France.

The Local Neighborhood: Enjoy an excellent neighborhood and a prestige apartment building on safe, upscale Avenue des Ternes -- close to lots of shops, bakeries, grocery stores and restaurants. Get fresh croissants and baguettes at the excellent boulangerie just down the street. Owner is American with French pastry-chef husband. Shop at Poncillet outdoor market, daily like the French, for fresh fruits and veggies, seafood, roasted or fresh chickens. I provide wheeled grocery carts.

This apartment is conveniently located within five minutes' walking distance of the Arc de Triomphe Charles de Gaulle Metro station -- where metro lines #1, #2, #6, and the RER-A will whisk you quickly to anywhere in the city.
Metro line 1 is the main tourist line, #2 will take you up to Montmartre and Sacre Coeur, #6 goes directly to the Eiffel Tower in two stops/4 nimutes.
RER-A's first stop is the Opera House Garnier.
Nearby Port Maillot has RER-C to go directly to Versailles.
Bus route 43 stops right in front of the apartment and will take you to my favorite, Musee Andre-Jacquemart. The 92 route is just a short walk.

Peace of Mind while you travel: * Why tie up a credit card with a security deposit when you could be using that money for your well deserved vacation? We offer optional Accidental Damage Insurance in-lieu of a Security Deposit. When you include this insurance with your reservation, the cost & repair of covered accidental damage will be handled by us! Coverage: Unintentional damage including things like carpet spills, furniture tears, broken lamps, etc. $500 in coverage for $29 and $1500 for just $49. * Travel Insurance Available: Protect your vacation investment from unexpected events. Did you know that vacation insurance could cover you if: You or a loved one gets sick (even if they aren't traveling with you)? You need medical treatment while traveling? A blizzard or hurricane prevents you from starting your vacation or forces you to leave early? And much more. * Call us today at 1 (619) 940-4687 for more details or visit our website 'NancysVacationRentals' for more info.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1998

About: I was based in Paris working as a Purser/Flight Attendant for United Airlines for 5 years. After 9/11 I took a voluntary furlough and came back to San Diego and started renting out my Paris apartment to vacationers. It was such fun interacting with people, especially those going to experience Paris for the very 1st time! But I enjoy talking to the most seasoned Francofiles, too. I was hooked and started my own Vacation Rental business in San Diego - NancysVacationRentals dot com. Now I have 50 rentals but still take the time to return to Paris twice a year to 'check on my property.' Someone has to do it! I'm happy to share my local knowledge with you.

Why Paris Arrondissement 8:
Describe why I bought a place in Paris? Are you kidding? It's the most beautiful city in the world and you would NEVER run out of things to see and do! Plus it's so fun to explore other parts of France after a week in Paris.
