An Enjoyable Parisian Stay
"My wife and I stayed at this apartment for 7 nights. We really enjoyed both the property and location.
We have been to Paris many times and like staying in places away from the main tourist haunts to enjoy the Parisian lifestyle. Pierre's apartment offered both a very lovely home for a week located in a very enjoyable quartier.
Although on the 'edge' of the Marais, we walked everywhere because Paris is a city where walking is so rewarding and the location is, at most, a 20 minute walk to the Seine. There are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants nearby as well as a couple of supermarkets and boulangeries etc.
The apartment is very quiet as it is ensconced at the rear of an oldler building well away from the street but enjoys plenty of light and fresh air from the courtyard. It is very well equipped with all that one needs for a short stay of a week or two.
Our only disappointments were as follows:
1) we could not get access to the apartment till after 4 pm (16:00) as the previous occupiers had not left on time and the place wasn't cleaned and ready by the agreed 2 pm check in time. It was a long time to wait from our arrival.
2) when we did finally get access, the previous used but now cleaned linen was still in the washing machine and we were requested by the guardienne to put it away in the cupboard.
3) the bedroom wardrobe was half filled with cleaning materials and other items that took away about 50% of useable space that we could have used
4) two cupboard doors in the kitchen were hanging loose and one actually fell off whilst we were there as it had obviously been left that way for some time.
Whilst these were annoying niggly things, our stay was still very comfortable and enjoyable and we would definitely stay again (I think the kitchen cupboards have been repaired now as there are new photos on the web site and they look OK).
The apartment was clean and Pierre, the owner, provided clear directions as how to get there and gain access and seemed to be an owner who cared for our comfort."

"We had a super stay at this apartment! The location is excellent -- in the cool Marais district, which has lots to do without some of the tourist excess of other areas in paris. It is also an easy walk to some of the main sites (i.e., 10-15 minutes to Notre Dame) and the up-and-coming Canal area. The apartment itself was very nice with all the amenities you would want. It was great to be on an inner courtyard because it made the apartment very quite despite being in the middle of a bustling neighborhood. And the property manager was very organized and helpful."

"The apartment was comfortable and convenient for exploring Paris. We walked everywhere and could come and drop off bags at the apartment if needed. It was a great experience being able to live close to Parisians for a few days and get a local feel! Christophe was very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this apartment!"

"My partner and I stayed in the adorable Paris apartment for almost a month from mid March through mid April and quite simply, it doesn't get better. This compact apartment is in a perfect location, close to great restaurants, delicious food shops, and the fantastic metro. It far exceeded our expectations in every way, from the ease of our hosts to its excellent organization, comfortable beds, great bathroom and shower, house information book, superb attention to every detail, and layout. (Not to mention that fantastic little elevator/lift bringing you to your front door after nights of full Parisian indulgence! -- yes we do love the restaurants and wine. )
Right on the street below, great shopping with the best baguettes we had in Paris, as well as A+ terrines, tarts, and meats.
Dear Mary and Ruby, how do we thank you for our perfect stay in your perfect place -- your perfect and welcoming home -- Merci mille fois!"
