Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Claude and Violaine,We are back in California for few days now and trying to get over the jetlag. We enjoyed very much staying at your studio and really loved the location. It is walking distance to a lot of good sightseeing spot. Marais is a very lively neighborhood and has a lot of restaurant, local shops, café, Pastry……. endless choice of everything and allow us to get a taste of what it is like living in Paris. We walked a lot everyday and loved it. Paris has a lot to offer and we still have a lot that we did not get to explore. We did not like to rush from one place to another just for the purpose of sightseeing. So, we take our time and did what we feel like at the moment. We loved the food, café, museum, admired all the beautiful historian buildings…………..etcThanks again for all your tips and letting us stay at your studio and hope that we will be considered as Friend of the House again in our next trip.

Average apartment, poor communication

  • 2 of 5

The apartment is pretty much as advertised. It is on the small side (which I was expecting) and a little more dingy than the photos show, but was clean and worked fine for a single traveller. The bed was very comfortable which was nice and the curtains block out a lot of the light. The view of the courtyard was also very cute. The reason I rated this stay low however, was because I never got sent the key codes to get into the building/apartment prior to arriving at the apartment. I wrote messages on the VRBO site, texted the numbers I had been given, both with no response. I ended up having to call a phone number in the states and finally connected with someone who was very helpful and gave me the information I needed. So once I actually connected with someone it was fine, it just too me making an international call at 11 at night for that to happen. For those who book this room, just make sure you get that information well in advance so you don't go through the same situation I did.

Great 'customer care'!

  • 5 of 5

Disclosure - I too rent out vacation properties in France, and know what a pain in the neck a two night rental can be. Just as much work for very little profit. And yet, when returning to the apartment at midnight on our first night and found we were accidently given linens for two when we were three, the owners promptly had it taken care of the next morning with an apology and fresh linens. It meant the manager had to make another trip to the property, and wash/iron for three people. All for a two night rental.

Lets you know you are renting from people who really want things to go well and will do what they can to keep their guests happy.

Quaint, cozy, great location but not very comfortable

  • 3 of 5

The location was perfect. It's near metro (train) station, and near lots of places to shop and eat. The apartment was a true studio, as indicated and pictured. There is no dresser or furniture for your clothing or personal care items, which made it difficult for two girls. There is a small space for hanging a few articles of clothing.

What we didn't like was that the chandelier that we fell in love with, in the pictures, did not work. The pillows were awfully flat and in my opinion should have been replaced a long time ago. The bathroom tiles (grout) seemed like they haven't been scrubbed in a long time. There was an issue of slow drainage in shower and after a few days we reached out to mention the situation and it was fixed within 48hrs. The courtyard was nice but fellow residents had rugs drying over the table/seating area, so we didn't get to enjoy.

We did love the view from the studio into the courtyard and the convenience of the location.

good location

  • 3 of 5

The location and quiet backside was the best part of this property. It was exceedingly small (smaller than most hotel rooms), and the "kitchen" wasn't really useful for anything except making coffee. The condition of the flat bordered on the dingy (water stains, peeling paper, poor condition of the bathroom, etc.) That said, it worked well enough for us, as we didn't spend much time there.
