Bright and Airy Apt in St. Germain
"Stayed at the Corbusier Apt for one week in May with my husband. The apartment was quiet, well maintained and in a great location. The restaurants and boulangerie on the street were great to have so nearby and Eggs & Co. Around the corner was perfect for breakfast or brunch!
Areas that could be improved/need to be noted
- getting the key is a two stop process and very self service. The directions were easy and we had no problems, but for someone who might be getting off a long international flight, it might be more complicated than you want.
- like most rentals, make sure to stop and grab needed items. Minimal support is provided (toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, etc.)
- don't expect long hot showers. The tank is very small and you have to go lukewarm water with half pressure or all the hot water is gone in 3.5 minutes (I timed it the 2nd shower!)
- bed is a smaller pull down Murphy bed and quite noisy....
- great location near Metroprix (grocery), restaurants, metro stop, shopping, etc.
- apartment was clean and had great WIFI
- location and building was quiet
- good for 2 people, would be pretty small for 3
- nice lighting and sizable bath
- washer worked
- kitchen was stocked with all items needed to cook
- property manager was thorough, detailed and responsive"

"My fiance & I stayed in this beautiful, well-kept flat for 10 days and we coudln't have had a more positive experience! Our host was waiting for us at the curb when we arrived from the airport, and he gave us a lay of the land before we left, and checked in on us while we were visiting. The flat is spacious and has a separate bedroom, great kitchen, and wonderful living room. It is central to the Louvre and West Bank as well. We would definitely stay there again!"

"Long Parisian week end in this perfect decorated little gem.
Amazing location (St Germain des pres! Right in the middle of the best shopping, restaurants, mythic Parisian clubs).
And killer detail: the terrace with the view on the Eiffel Tower, breakfast in heaven!
Would definitely recommend it."

"Three week stay in this great apartment in Montparnasse. Metro just outside building doorway. Train station in easy walking distance. Apartment was very roomy by European standards and ample space for my husband and I to feel very comfortable. Pictures do not do justice to space and light available. Large tub with great water pressure; separate WC; very comfortable double bed with lots of closet/drawer space; kitchen is stocked for EVERY cooking need except regular oven. Sofa is very comfortable; as described, flat screen TV and working iMAC computer. The washer was great but dryer was challenging (trick is to put clothes on extra spin dry and then use more time than "typical" to fully dry clothing) We hung lots of items and worked fine once I figured it out. The apartment is secured behind coded front door and then again by key access to apartments and elevator; we used stairs often but appreciated elevator immensely at end of long day of touring or after shopping. If you are there for a while, you will discover endless treasures such as Eric Kayser Boulanger/Patissier for best bread we found in 3 weeks, Monoprix for shopping, streetside Henri's Creperie which is a delight and an institution, shopping mall across the street, etc, etc., etc. If you are coming from the USA, the food and restaurant prices will create distinct "sticker shock" so be prepared :-) Our host Bernard Testu was very responsive from the time we started planning our trip 18+ plus ago until even after we returned to the USA. Our only glitch was an issue with the Wi-Fi which was not his fault and for which he pursued a resolution as best he could. In the end, we had access to free Wi-Fi and computer and BBC TV (we watched little TV). To be honest, upon arrival, I did do a good bit of cleaning (toilet, tub, sinks) to bring up to my standards but cleaning supplies were available -- an initial disappointment (I know I am not the first to mention) but do not let it keep you from taking this lease. . The view from apartment is limited but charming: rooftops and sky; our only concern in the morning was construction noise and yapping dog on ground floor in building to right but good windows did close that out pretty well. Apartment is not air-conditioned so a fan or two would be very helpful for warm days. We were blessed with terrific weather in September and so it did get warm in the apartment in the evening. Would stay again absolutely. Contact us for more info :-)"
