Spacious, safe & in a phenomenal location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed in Claire's fantastic apartment for a 10-day summer vacation in Paris. It is very spacious, safe, in a great location with gorgeous Eiffel Tower views.

Location: The apartment is centrally located to many landmarks, public transportation, grocery stores and restaurants. The area is phenomenal and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the Parisian architecture and street-side cafes. We didn't need a rental car as we could quickly get around via public transportation or Uber whenever it was needed.

Accommodations: Claire provided more pictures upon request, and the large apartment was exactly as pictured. Very clean and has A/C throughout, which made a BIG difference during the summer months. The kitchen was well-appointed, and Claire even provided a crib, toys, and highchair for our toddler!

Our favorite perks included the large open floor plan (living room & dining room), multiple bathrooms, Wi-Fi, washer & dryer, the museum pass, private elevator, and metal shutters on the windows to drown out the sound of the city street.

Safety: Our family of 5 felt extremely safe in this apartment. The location is gated from the street with three more locked doors between you and the courtyard.

Home Owner: Claire is fantastic, lovely to work with, honest and very helpful. She answered all our questions, gave excellent recommendations and even offered to make restaurant reservations or translate if we ever had a medical emergency.

Highly recommend her apartment when vacationing in Paris.


**A Starbucks, authentic Parisian bakery and the iconic Rue Cler market is a short walk from the apartment. You don't want to miss shopping at Rue Cler & eating gelato at Amorino's.

**There is no A/C on public transportation - bring a small fan if you plan to travel this way.

**We were able to use the Museum pass Claire provides at the Louvre. It was great avoiding the lines and jumping to the front.

**Book your pass to visit the Eiffel Tower months in advance. We didn't realize summit passes would sell out. The morning time slot was not as crowded.

**CDG is massive and very busy during peak summer days. We arrived three hours before our departure and barely made it through all the customs/security lines in time to get on our flight.

**Parisian are very accommodating when it comes to small children. There were many times our family was pulled into a different line to avoid impending meltdowns. Do make sure & check whether you can bring strollers

Purely magical!

  • 5 of 5

What a location...a great view of the Eiffel Tower. The property was outstanding and with two floors and 3 bathrooms offered plenty of space for my parents, my two older children, and my husband and I to spread out and have privacy and yet family together time. A convenient location for food, shopping and to get to all the tourist attractions in Paris. We walked almost everywhere. I would recommend this property to any family visiting Paris! Also, the owner was delightful to work with!

Beautiful Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

It's perfectly situated so you can walk to all the sights or take the Metro, which is very close. The VIP passes got us into the museums.....absolutely no waiting and no admission costs!! Woke up every morning and had coffee and freshly baked croissants at one of the many bakeries within walking distance. And for those of you having Starbucks withdrawals, don't fret.....there is one close by on Rue Saint-Dominique. We were there for Bastille Day and were able to skip the crowds, have some wine and enjoy the Eiffel Tower fireworks from the balcony! There were 9 of us, spending a week in Paris, 4 adults and 5 teens, this apartment fit us all easily. It has a fully furnished kitchen so you can relax and eat at home in air conditioning. It also comes with a washer/dryer. When it is time to leave, there are easy to follow instructions on scheduling a taxi to pick you up downstairs. A very BIG thank you to Claire and her family, they were very welcoming. Had a wonderful stay from beginning to end. I would not hesitate to stay here again. I HIGHLY recommend the apartment.

Perfect apartment Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults & 3 kids and HIGHLY recommend the apartment, it was exactly as it appears, was larger and more beautiful than expected, location is perfect watching the Eiffel Tower light up at night & for transit (we did not have a car), pastry shops and restaurants. A very safe location with the entry on a gated side alleyway. They have terrific brochures/binder for every touristy detail you need and the VIP passes are priceless for skipping massive lines & cost!!! The kitchen is well equipped, laundry is great incl. dryer! Owners are lovely & very helpful. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Loved staying here! Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? From the warm welcome from Claire making us feel at home right away to the magical twinkling Eiffel Tower out our windows at night - our stay was wonderful at this lovely home away from home! The apartment was beautiful and much larger than expected, easily accommodating our two families. The balconies were a nice treat! Our days started with sunlight pouring into the large kitchen windows as we planned our adventures, and ended back "at home" with Bordeaux being sipped on that oh so comfy red couch! Just lovely! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to experience Paris as a Parisian.

A wonderful Paris apartment

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for our Paris family trip in July and it was terrific. Its clean and spacious with a fantastic location in the 7th. Its a short walk to the Eiffel Tower and just a couple of minutes walk to Metro and RER stops and there is a taxi stand right in front of the building. The neighborhood is safe and has many good restaurants along with bakeries and grocery stores. Our host Claire was absolutely delightful and made sure all of our needs were met. The apartment rental includes museum passes for eight that not only allows free entry but you go to the front of the line, it was a life saver at Versailles. I wouldn't hesitate in renting again or recommending this property.
