Perfect Marais apartment
"I highly recommend this apartment and would stay there again if we return to Paris. We rented this apartment for one week in April 2015. There were six of us -- me, my husband, his parents and our 7 year-old and 1 year-old. The apartment was large enough to comfortably accommodate us all, and the second bathroom was especially nice. There was a pack-n-play for our baby and a high chair. We shopped at the nearby Carrefour grocery market and ate some meals in the apartment, which saved us a lot of money. The apartment is also surrounded by restaurants, cafes and shops. We were a 5 minute walk from the Seine, Notre Dame, the Ile St. Louis and the Pompidou museum. The apartment building has a tiny elevator if you need it, although the three flights of stairs were quite manageable. Fabien was very responsive via email before we arrived and answered all of our questions. Jacques met us timely at the apartment on the day we arrived, explained everything we needed to know and arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport when we left. The apartment needs a little TLC and the dryer was not working while we were there. However, these are very minor complaints and the important things -- location, comfort, price and a helpful owner -- were all spot on. I highly recommend this apartment to any family or group who wants to stay in a fabulous neighborhood during their Paris vacation."

"My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Paris with this apartment as our base. The apartment was very nice, even larger than we expected, with a functional kitchen and comfortable bed. The location was fantastic--close to excellent bakeries, a cheese shop, a butcher, a wine shop and several small supermarkets and a great variety of restaurants. Best of all, it was very close to the Metro with which all of Paris is easily accessible. The only drawbacks were problems with the WiFi and the washer/dryer combo, but these were relatively minor."

"What a great apartment! Everything is as described in the photos and written portion. Very clean! We booked from Vancouver and everything was safe and easy. The metro station is right across the street, central location for our needs. Walking distance to Notre Dame from this Marais district. Marie's instructions were helpful and accurate. We had all we needed for our family of four (2 teenagers). Our deposit was also returned promptly. We would book again if we came to Paris. Thank you!"

excellent location that works fine for a family of five
"This apartment worked fine for our family of five, although my three daughters used the living space as their bedroom so things were a little tight. However, the location is outstanding and makes up for the close quarters. Ile St. Louis affords a bit of quiet from the bustle of Paris, which we really valued. It was lovely to hear the bells of Notre Dame from the apartment! It was easy to deal with Nicolas in advance of our arrival and when we were there too. He was very responsive and speaks excellent English. He also graciously arranged for storage of our luggage for the day after we checked out and as we waited for a night train to our next location. One concern was that the washing machine in the apartment was broken. However, it was our first stop on a four city trip and so we didn't have too much laundry to do anyway. There also is no obvious place we would have put the wet laundry to dry, too. Be aware that there is no air conditioning, although that didn't bother us. As we were leaving Paris, however, it was predicated to be 102 F so we were happy to be heading elsewhere considering there was no air conditioning. Be aware too that the stairs to the apartment are winding and narrow and might be a problem for those not too agile. We were fine with them, however. We enjoyed the apartment and would rent it again. Its best feature is its location - central and close to everything yet quiet."
