Guestbook comments from the owner


it was very pleasant to book the apartment through the mail. I enjoyed all your directions and instructions; the apartment has everything you need and is very tasteful. It was an ideal place to stay with my grandson, much nicer than a hotel room. I will recommend it to friends and family and hope to come back myself.

Fabulous location and no hesitations in recommending the unit or renting the unit for future visits

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I booked the studio last minute and Jean-Pierre (owner) was very accommodating. We had planned to stay for four nights and although the post requested a minimum of 5 nights, we gave it a try since the calendar indicated that the unit was available. He accommodated our request openly. While we were there, we extended our visit for a fifth night without trouble. The studio looks exactly as shown in the pictures. The location cannot be beat. We greatly appreciated the fact that the unit is on the ground floor so no need to climb stairs, particularly since we walked everywhere. Here are some approximate distances in time (leisurely stroll) from the studio: Eiffel Tower (within 15 min), Hotel des Invalides (10 min), Jardin du Luxembourg (12 min), Le Bon Marché (3 min). Restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, and many boutiques within a minute's walk from the studio. Very safe to walk around at night.

The studio is also a couple of minutes from the Marché Raspail, which is a street market open on Tuesday and Friday, and an organic market on Sunday. We purchased fabulous crepes on Sunday made right in front of our eyes; cheese; cured meats; bread; mouth is watering just recalling the great spread! A few vendors accepted credit cards but cash would be best. (By the way, there were many ATMs nearby, as well as small supermarkets to purchase toiletries, food, and drinks.)

The studio itself was very clean, which was extremely important for me since I am very picky about cleanliness. The owner provided dish detergent for the dishwasher and laundry detergent for the washer, which is also a dryer. The washer/dryer was very helpful since we only packed one carry-on luggage each. The bathroom is new and modern, with a heated towel rack. One bath towel and one hand towel provided per guest. The hairdryer was very powerful, which I was thankful for since I have really long and thick hair. The bed was firm and very comfortable.

Upon confirmation, Jean-Pierre sent detailed directions (with map) to the studio. We took the RER and then the metro from CDG. No difficulties finding the apartment. The custodian of the building is a very nice woman who lives in the building. Several Lonely Planet travel books. Free wifi. Jean-Pierre even provided us with a laptop for use. Provided a cheque for security deposit, which was at checkout.

We cannot wait to return to Paris and would definitely rent the studio again. Merci beaucoup Jean-Pierre.

Heaven in Paris...

  • 5 of 5

This is a delayed review, but I felt absolutely compelled to review Jean-Pierre's studio!

I never had any desire to travel to Paris, so when my niece picked Paris as her graduation destination gift, I was not so excited...little did I know, I was going to fall inlove so hard!!! Jean-Pierre is ABOVE and BEYOND amazing. The location is a short distance out of city center, but extremely close to two great subway stations that will get you to and from airports and surrounding destinations. The local neighborhood offers a great variety of patiserries, cafes and clothing stores. I LOVED the neighboorhood. We (18 and 35 year old women) walked along the streets, cafes well past mid-night and never once worried about our safety. Thanks Jean-Pierre. I have stayed at many VRBO locations, and never have I received the level of detail and assistance that you offered-from providing detailed and EXCELLENT maps to and from airport, to calling a taxi for us, to tracking our flight to ensure arrival time, you are amazing and well appreciated. Loved the little studio. We cooked, sat on the patio for early dinner listening to the sound of far off chruch bells...I WILL be back, and I will BE staying at your beautiful studio again!

HIgh standard and great value for a short stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Third visit to Paris, first time staying in Montparnasse. To be honest, this studio surpassed expectations. It was spotless, comfortable, well located, safe, tastefully decorated, a powerful shower and very good value for money. It is well located in terms of proximity to the metro, supermarket, coffee shops and brassieres. Jean-Pierre really couldn't have been nicer, seriously, he had a fall from his mopehead just before he met us and he was still the perfect gentleman.

You can't go wrong......perhaps I should be keeping this place a secret!!..Hmmmm

Unbeatable location.

  • 5 of 5

This apt is centrally located to all that Paris has to offer. It is located in a much sought after neighborhood, on a street lined with local boutiques, markets, and restaurants. IWe felt very safe. The apartment is located behind a gated entrance. Jean Pierre will provide a detailed map of everything within several blocks--review this, it is quite handy for grocery shopping, or a quick meal. If you are looking for what it must be like to 'live' in Paris--this is the place. You will find the apartment exactly as described and pictured---well maintained, bright and cheery. And for my small family it was an ideal respite for a three year old that finds a tiny hotel room unbearable. The selection of movies is amazing--with something to offer for everyone's taste.

I cannot say enough positive things about this experience--we had a lovely time in Paris at Christmas, in large part to the safety and comfort we experienced in renting the apartment.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for four days in February 2012. The apartment was recommended to us by a friend. It was our first time in Paris and we were very happy with our stay. JP was very nice and accommodating. He arranged a taxi for us to the airport on our way out of town, which was much appreciated. The apartment is simple but quite nice. The best part is the great location. We were able to walk a lot of places but were also close to the metro and found that quite convenient. We appreciated the wireless internet access in the apartment. We would definetely recommend this place! The only suggestion would be to bring your own towels as the ones provided are not the greatest.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

Three of us stayed in this apartment for 7 nights in May/June 2011. We found it surprisingly spacious and never felt like we were in each other’s faces. The neighbourhood is absolute perfection: quiet, safe, lots of shopping and cafes, and easy walking distance to some of the best spots in Paris. (A stroll down to the Seine was about 20-min max, and a walk to St. Germain Blvd takes mere minutes). The patio was a lovely perk. The apartment was well-appointed with what we needed (though we did have to buy toilet paper, as we were only left with half a roll) and the appliances worked reliably. It can get stiflingly hot though, even with the windows open and the fan on full blast, so I would keep this in mind if travelling in the summer. The building caretaker seems a bit nosy; we often found her peering into our window. But really, not a big deal. The owner was very good with email communication prior to our visit, and a mix-up with our arrival time (which saw us waiting outside the apartment for 2.5 hours) was met with gracious apologies and a bottle of wine. And the owner's son arranged our taxi for the ride back home (he was a sweetheart). Overall, I would recommend this apartment.
