"What a joy to find a nest away from home that gives you so much pleasure. Lovely quiet neighborhood, charmingly furnished pied-a-terre with thoughtful additions like books and maps of Paris, new appliances, and close to metro, bus and taxi stands. And the shower in the bathroom is outstanding!
This is our third stay, and we look forward to many more."

"We, 3 childhood friends, stayed at the apartment for a wonderful get-together in Paris. The apartment is very clean, beds very comfortable and instructions were very clear. The location is superb. I would highly recommend the place and if in Paris will definitely aim to stay there again.
There is a bakery very close by and it was great to start the day with fresh croissants and baguette.
I would recommend to try and improve little maintenance problems: the floorboards creak and some are loose, some of the electric sockets need fastening as does the bathroom tap and one of the knobs on the shower glass door. There were only 5 towels - there were supposed to be 6.
I would suggest providing exact directions + map (for example the best way to walk from the metro if you are carrying heavy luggage and don't want to go up stairs).
All in all - the Paris holiday was wonderful and the apartment was definitely one of the reasons.

This is my second time renting from Cecile (www.dreams-apartments.com) within 4 months. I rented one of her other appartments ("Marais Chic") last October and really enjoyed my experience, (reliable airport pick-up and drop-off service, beautiful and confortable appartment, excellent location etc...) so I contact Cecile again this time but "Marais Chic' wasn't available so I rented "Marais Elegance".
As usual, dealing with Cecile is pleasant although this time there was a little confusion about drop-off service from the appartment to the train station on departure. It was advertised on website that this service is included but Cecile first asked 40 Euros for it. However, the matter was promptly corrected without any further issue.
Location is great: metro is nearby as grocery shops and good restaurants. The appartment is very well kept and appointed into small details so we feel like being at home. The huge collection of travel books is great. Wi-Fi is fast and flawless. In short, this is a home away from home that I won't hesitate to reccommand to my friends/family.
Comparing Marais Chic to Marais Elegance, I prefer Marais Chic because its bedding is better. More choice of pillow of various softness would be great."

"We spent eight nights in this appartment. A family couple with a son of 20 years. Everything is perfect. Mr. Texeira met us in the airport and brought to the appartment by its own car. We had tickets pour le spactacle a l'Opera de la Bastille same evening and we were anxious to be late. Only the help of Manuel allowed us to be in time. Manuel is very welcome and attentive to all our needs. He even brought to us three umbrellas because weather was cloudy with short rains. Studio is perfectly placed: two metro stations very close to the door. Entrance to the building from two streets. Very safe and calme. Good bed and sofa. Cleanless is absolute. Kitchen was equiped of all you may need to prepare breackfast or even dinner. There was a food stock in refrigerator for a first time. Manuel gave us two sets of keys, that facilitated come and go for us and for our son. No deposit money was asked for ! Reservation and payment by internet very fast and sample. Fast WiFi , computer and unlimited free phone at guest's disposal. There is a big supermarket in 5 min walking distance, bakary at the corner, local food markets in neghbour streets and the big market on Thursday and Saturday on Place de la Bastille. Very suitable if you have a programm in Opera de la Bastille. Short distance to everything in center of Paris. We recommended this appartment to our frends and plan to stay there again our next visit to Paris."
