Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms (Sleeps up to 4)

Best location in Saint-Germain : Luxury shops at your feet. A supermarket is a few steps away . “Saint Germain” and subway Parking as well. One cannot dream of a better location.

This 2 bedrooms 4 guests apartment is a unique opportunity in Paris. It offers a great combination of advantages:

• Perfect location

• Luxury building with caretaker.

• Tasteful apt design and the numerous windows bathe the apartment in light.

• Accommodates comfortably 4 guests in 2 bedrooms physically away one from one another

• Offers 2 bathrooms linked or close to the bedrooms

This luxury building is very nicely decorated. It offers a unique courtyard with colorfull greeneries and wide corridors with column style decoration. Additionally, it is an extra safe buildings with locked doors to go through before entering, and coded elevators.

Last but not least the building is extra calm as too large for the street noise to enter.

This wooden floored apartment exudes serenity. It is decorated nicely with paintings on the walls. The fact that the owner lives in the apt a few weeks per year guarantees it is well equipped and taken care of.

• On entering the apartment one is welcomed by a small corridor. At its end is located the smaller bedroom. It has a nice window which allows for a lot of natural light and view over roofs. The bedroom offers a comfortable double bed for two. It offers has an integrated closet and drawers, a screen for video games (BYO). A foldable desk may be opened if needed.

• Close to the bedroom, one finds a beautifully tiled bathroom. The bathroom offers a shower, a sink and a toilet. Further down the corridor, to the right, a window over a small courtyard and roofs brings light.

• Right out of the first bedroom another corridor leads to the main living area. The living area offers a living room, a dining space and an open kitchen. It is a very warm place, well designed and convenient. It benefits from 2 windows ( on each side). It offers a sofa and an armchair that can comfortably seat up to 4 guests.

• The dining table can accommodate up to 6 guests. It is foldable if needed. The kitchen is well equipped with all one needs to conjure up and enjoy a nice home cooked meal.

• To the right of the living area is located the master bedroom. The bedroom offers a comfortable queen size bed for two. A closet is built into the wall and a chest of drawers is present for use. The bedroom window has a nice view over the opposite Parisian roofs. You may even see the Eiffel tower between 2 chimneys.

• The second bathroom is directly linked to the master bedroom. It offers a bath tub with a shower, two wash basins and drawers (no toilet)

• A 'moveable' air cond system is supplied. It is a rare avantage in Paris as most apartments would not offer even a fan.

The apartment is located on the sixth floor and it is worth noting that the building has 2 entrances. A dream location !

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

Neighborhood :

• The Saint Germain area is very lively and full of restaurants, cafés, cinemas and trendy shops. The art Galleries of Rue de seine are very close. One reaches the Eglise Saint Sulpice, and Eglise de Saint Germain des Pres in a matter of minutes. And there is even a supermarket to conveniently buy food, which is not always easy inside Paris.

• Last but not least, if you have kids, the Luxembourg garden is walking distance.

• This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It is very central. There are 3 subway stations at walking distance.

About owner/property manager

In Beau Paris is a Vacation Rental Agency operating in Paris for more than 10 years.

We manage close to 100 apartments in Paris, all of very good to luxury standard.

We take care of the advertising of apartments, the reservation process from payments to security deposit refund; and even the cleaning and the maintenance of the apartment.

We would be very happy to host you in one of our apartments that you will find on VRBO Listing #26870.

We do very little brand name advertisement. We focus on what matters: MAKING SURE OUR GUESTS ARE SATISFIED (check the reviews on any of our apts. Recent apts do not have reviews yet).

We believe it is the best way to develop our activities which have been growing steadily every year. You are welcome to try our service.

owner/property manager purchased this apartment in 2005

Why owner/property manager chose Saint-Germain-des-Prés

We selected this property because of its great location in the middle of the Saint-Germain des Prés neighborhood and the apartment quality and comfort.

It is the main residence of the owner. He rents when going to his secondary residence. For a guest, renting a main residence is a warranty of high quality : it is always maintained at top level. Obvioulsy, the owner puts away personal belonging. There is more than enough space available for guests.

WE DO CARE ABOUT PROPERTIES WE MANAGE.

What makes this apartment unique

We know searching for an apartment can be a nightmare :

That is why, from beginning of your search to the end of your stay, you will have REAL PEOPLE INTERACTING WITH YOU, not automatic mailing or automatic booking.

WE ARE PROFESSIONALS.

We answer to each request and send a detailed quote & contract on each request. We believe the instant quote given on the site is not precise enough for a guest to book an apt.

We react fast, be it by mail (often in the hour, max 24h, we have evening shift), Immediatly by phone. Note we do not take booking on the phone nor discuss prices or availability, risk of mistake is too high. E-mail is much more secure & precise. We nevertheless are happy to answer specific questions.

During your stay, we are always available. We can advise you on how to use the apt. We run a night emergency line, for real emergencies :-). When problem arise, we do our best to solve them, quickly.

We want our guest to have the best memories of their stay. We have a high rate of returning guests : it seems they do.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment in Paris, 6th arrondisment, St Germaine de Pres, exactly as presented on line. The instructions for entering and leaving worked perfectly. The location is fantastic and very central to everything. Couldn't be better. A very well equipped kitchen, 2 nice bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and living room. There is a Monoprix literally next door. Overall, a great place to stay if you are visiting Paris.

Excellent apartment in the heart of the Latin Quarter.

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable apartment in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Superbly managed pristine and modern building on the corner of Blvd. St. Germain and rue de Rennes. Alert, gracious and helpful concierge. Apartment just right for two. Nicely equipped kitchen; we cooked dinner there often for ourselves and friends. Wonderfully quiet. ..you can sleep off the jet lag with no worries. All modern appliances, and even a Nespresso coffee maker.

The price is competitive for this (expensive) neighborhood. We stayed two weeks. For longer stays, we advise renters to plan on buying their own bath soap, trash bags, toilet paper, washing soap, and perhaps towels and face cloths. These are not provided by the owners. Also there is no provision for interim cleaning or change of bed linens, which may be an issue on stays of a month, for example. Fortunately, there is an fully stocked Monoprix just outside the front door, so no worries.

We would definitely stay here again, and will recommend it to friends and family.

In the heart of shopping

  • 5 of 5

There was only one day that was so hot that we had to use the portable air conditioner. If you use it, I recommend having it in one of the bedrooms. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed to cook after I got ingredients. Several high-end boutiques are all around. Cartier, Swarovski, and Armani are very close. Monoprix is next door, but the grocery part is downstairs. Make sure you buy food before 10pm and before Sunday because they are closed on Sundays. There is a cafe near by named Les Deux Magots (the two budgets), and it is famous - make sure you go for lunch because the dinner menu is almost double in price. From the main bedroom window, you can see the top of the Tower, so we were able to see some of the Bastille Day fireworks. We went over to Trocedero before dark, but it was so crowded that we just came back to the apartment for the night. The Metro line 4 is near, and we were able to get to everything from there. Having the windows open and hearing the sounds of the city was really nice. I recommend this to anyone who needs 2 beds.

Not a place for hot Paris summers

  • 2 of 5

The company managing the apartment has a very good self check-in setup that is very well considered. The apartment itself is cute and homey. The elevator (6th floor) did not work for 5 of our 7 nights. Management, originally of the understanding the elevator was fixed after 2 days, offered a 10% discount, but apparently thought nothing additional was merited after learning the truth. The bigger issue I would consider is that this is a top-floor apartment that gets unbearably hot and stuffy. I would avoid it over the summer.

Owner's Response: Hi Matthew, Thanks for your review and glad to know you found the apartment to be cute and homey. Unfortunately an elevator out of order can happen anywhere. All inhabitants faced the problems. We fully depend onf the building manager on those issues. We immediately took contact with the building manager to have it repaired as fast as possible. It took longer than expected to the technicians but it now works again. We called many times to insist. The problems seem to have been a part missing. As apt managers we stand in between the guest and the owner. We are doing our best to solve any issue and find some agreements on inconvenience . We were able to offer a 10% discount which is in a standard for those type of incidents. We understand guests would always prefer a higher discount. Heat wave your are mentioning is not a regular issue. We never had complaints before. Heatwaves are short and exceptional in Paris, we understand you suffered from it as we all did. Parisians are used to close the curtains and open the windows to create a slight breeze. Plus there is a moveable air con at disposal in the apartment, which is quite rare in Paris and makes this apartment much more comfortable than many others during those short periods. We hope to receive you in one of the apt we manage at your next trip and will be happy to offer 10% discount on the list price. Sincerely, Jean

Great location, nice building

  • 4 of 5

Like others before me the issue of two bathrooms but only one with a WC is a nuisance. The apt. could do with some TLC, we found clothes in the bathroom closet, in drawers. I would recommend it to a family with two children, perhaps, but not two couples, unless not fussy about the WC situation.

The location is fantastic, the building recently painted and well maintained. I would go back again as long as internet services improve, we had a full day and a half with no WiFi, though in all fairness the agent did try to find a solution to the problem.

Owner's Response: Hi Janet, Thanks for your review and nice to know you found the apartment to be in a fantastic location and well maintained. We understand the issue to have one WC and not two but unfortunately the apartment is like this and correctly described. In Paris it is very rare to have two bathrooms and even more rare to have two WC. Sincerely, Jean

Great location, beautiful area!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful apartment! Despite minor set backs, I would recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Paris. Beautiful location just steps to anything you would need (i.e., food, grocery stores, pharmacy, metro, etc.). Well designed, secure building --although under renovation during my stay, the lobby and surrounding area was very nice.
