AMAZING LOCATION, LOVELY AND VERY COMFORTABLE !
This is an excellent place to stay in Paris!
First off, Nanda (the manager) is a consummate gentleman to deal with. He was very quick to respond to our inquires and was extremely helpful when asked specific questions about locations, guidance and advice on a trip to Paris.
His recommendations for restaurants was outstanding!
We're delighted with this lovely and well appointed apartment.
If you are visiting Paris, you probably aren't spending a lot of time indoors, but in case you do,the apartment has everything you need.
Nanda takes great pride in the condition of Vikki's apartment and it shows - it is absolutely spotless.
It is decorated very tastefully and has that beautiful view overlooking Avenue Montainge and the well known Hotel Plaza Athénée.
It is located in a wonderful neighbourhood, minutes from the Eiffel Tower, great restaurants, and shopping - Dior, Armani, Valentino, Prada and many more luxury stores just around the corner!
We felt extremely safe in this apartment. The building is extremely quiet and rarely saw anybody. We also enjoyed good restful nights sleep.
It's 5 minutes from the front door to the Champs Élysées beautiful green.
It is also close to the Musee de Orsay, the Louvre, and Notre Dame and other places in other easy to access directions. Restaurants, a market, pharmacy, and other needed places are also nearby.
Life is pretty great in the 8th arr.
We definitely recommend this apartment for your stay!
Many, many thanks Vikki and Nanda!
THE PICTURES AND DESCRIPTION ARE MISLEADING - THIS IS A MICRO SMALL UNIT WITH SPARSE FURNISHINGS
My Fiancee and I were so excited to celebrate our engagement by spending 2 weeks in Paris at a this spacious looking residence, cooking at home in a roomy kitchen and having dinner in the dining room or even on the balcony overlooking Ave Montaigne. Then going to sleep in a wonderful king size bed. First, to be very fair and conservative, the pictures represent the apartment to be at least TWICE the size that it actually is. When we got there to our shock, there is no dining room. The dining room is the desk table at the front door entrance that has been moved to the middle of the Foyer with the only chairs in the apartment placed under the table. The balcony is not a balcony as implied in the pictures but a railing that is bolted across the door/window overlooking Ave Montaigne . And the King Size bed is actually two twin beds each with depressed centers placed under a larger than king size headboard. And finally the kitchen is MICRO in size. Where is the refrigerator, the freezer, and the washer? They are miniature appliances under the left side counter in the picture! I have never seen 2 foot by 2 foot appliances like this in my life. Not to mention the leftover food in the freezer and water dripping from the refrigerator. And we were told that when we clean the apartment, the vacuum cleaner in the closet does NOT work. We felt terrible. We immediately decided we were not going to stay there and informed Nanda the apartment manager and Vikki the owner. We had no choice but to stay in Hotels (Plural.) It was fashion week in Paris and when we finally found a place at 10pm the first night, we had to move to 4 different hotels during our stay.
We are not unreasonable people and there is the saying 'Buyer Beware." So I explained this to Nanda and instead of asking for our full payment due to severe misrepresentation, I offered that we split it in half and be on our way. Even though now we would be paying to stay in hotels in Paris. I spoke with Vikki the owner and she said she would call me back. She never returned my initial call. I called her at least two times and Nanda also asked her to call me. She never responded during our stay. We contacted HomeAway and they have been wonderful. Because of the owners insensitivity and misrepresentation (she admitted that she took the pictures herself), we are going after a total refund. The unit has been rented for over 6 years and there have been only 4 other reviews? Interesting....
The problem here has nothing to do with the apartment.
Simon T LIED to the woman accompanying him when he told her there was maid service. She wanted to go to a Hotel as had been promised her.
They checked in, saw the whole apartment, signed the contract, left the key deposit, began to unpack, all the while asking the property manager to arrange maid service - we don´t know anyone we can guarantee.
Hours later the property manager called to see if they needed anything - they wanted a refund so they could go to a Hotel.
My refund policy printed on the listing is a very generous 100% refund, 30 days before check in, or 50% refund 15 days before check in.
People who want Hotels should not rent apartments on VRBO.
Then began the BLACKMAIL. Simon T began threatening to write a bad review, to contact lawyers, to do many different menacing things.
VRBO says they have a strict 'NO BLACKMAIL POLICY'. By rights his review should not have been published.
The apartment is exactly the same size as the plan on the listing and the photographs are not done wide angle lenses.
As you can see VRBO, does not feel I misrepresented anything or my listing would not be here.
I will definitely return
In January, at very short notice, I was given the opportunity to write an article on "Paris: Dream Shopping".
So I came online and looked for avenue Montaigne. Up came this charming flat and I wrote to Vikki and within an hour we had a deal. It couldn't have been easier. I had working meetings in the living room. I loved the comfort of the bedroom and bath (new comfort and polished marble). The kitchen has all mod cons and is pretty with a view over the gardens. The property manager was extremely helpful and was always available to answer any question I might have had. Needless to say,avenue Montaigne's beautiful shops were at my doorstep. e.g. Valentino, Prada, Dior, Nina Ricci, Louis Vuitton. A delightful stay and next time I am in Paris, I will definitely return.
Thank you very much, Jenny.
I hope you will be back to Paris and the apartment soon.
Lovely apartment/excellent location/very kind people
We had a lovely stay in Paris in Vikki's exceptional apartment, made even more so with the kindness and care of Nanda. The apartment is beautiful, elegant, clean and perfectly appointed in a very clean and secure building. The neighborhood is superb, safe and located just blocks off the Champs Elysee in one direction and the River Seine in the other! Nanda met us when we arrived; greeting us with great warmth and concern for our comfort. He spent significant time acquainting us with the apartment and neighborhood; even showing us where we could shop for groceries. We highly recommend this opportunity/accomodation in Paris and will hope for a return stay in the future. Thank you so very much!
Los Angeles couple
Well, we just got home last night and could not wait to write this review. I told a friend that 50% of our enjoyment in Paris was because of our "NEW HOME" on Ave Montaigne. It was everything we expected and more. We were literly on top of the fashion street in Paris and across the street from a 5 star hotel. We had more restaurants in our"neighbor hood" than we could have eaten at. We had a view of the Eiffle Tower from our street and a very short walk to all the cafes and shopping on the Champs Elysees. The manager of the Apt for the owner is a wonderful fellow by the name of Nanda. Nanda watched out for us like a family member, my wife and I will always be greatful for his friendship and watchful eye.
Exceptional location/great apartment rental
I just got back from a 10 day stay at this wonderful apartment and am looking forward to returning in the future. This apartment exceeded my expectations. The owner was friendly,easy to work with, very responsive and reasonable. When I arrived early saturday morning, I was greeted at the front door of the building, shown around the apartment, introduced to the doorman, given all sorts of helpful advice and even given a walking tour of the neighborhood to acclimate me.
The location is superb. The apartment is located on avenue Montaigne (not near it, but on it) It is a beautiful building directly across the street from the 5 star luxury hotel , the plaza Athenee. When you walk outside, go across the street and look to the left, you have a fantastic view of the Eifel Tower. There are famous boutiques and shops around you if you are into fashion. There are many restaurants and cafes within a few minutes walk. You walk a few minutes down the street and you are at the Alma Marceau metro stop. If you walked a few minutes up the street,you are at Champs Elysee and the Franklin Roosevelt metro stop. You are also close to numerous bus lines that also can take you all over the city.
The apartment itself is also better than expected. Clean, uncluttered and with some beautiful pieces of antique furniture and other high quality furniture. Huge window in the living room that lets in a lot of light when you are there. Comfortable sofa, plenty of chairs, a tv that gets CNN, BBC, and cnbc so you can keep up with the news,if you chose. Free wifi if you bring a computer with you. Bedroom has a comfortable large bed and a large window and faces out on a quiet street behind the building. There is a full bathroom as well as a separate powder room -- both of which were spotlessly clean. The kitchen is updated and has everything you need to cook. It also has a washer/dryer that was convenient for light loads of laundry.
The security deposit was in cash, which I have not been asked for before. But I had absolutely no problems,they provided a receipt for it as part of the rental agreement, and all of it was returned to me the morning I was leaving after I returned the keys and they did quick check of the apartment.
I highly recommend this apartment for anyone who is looking for nice place in a great location, whether it is your first trip to Paris or you have been there many times before.
Unique high fashion shopping street, Excellent restaurants, Enjoy Paris at its' best!
