Stunning modern apartment in the heart of the 6th with a garden

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for us and our grandchildren, one a toddler who needs space to run around. He especially loved the bed that came down from the ceiling. Very cool. The garden out back is a real gem that gives you a place to retreat from the busy street life. The proximity to the Luxembourg Gardens is also a big plus and there are plenty of shops nearby for anything you might need.The decor is imaginative and fun although we had to put some things off limits. I would highly recommend this space for a family or couples and would definitely come back myself.

Joshua's home was fun, incredibly convenient and well located. We would highly recommend it.

Excellent! The decor was interesting and creative. The outdoor space was incredible! It was perfect for our family of 4. The apartment was steps from a Metro stop and easy walking to restaurants, stores and the park. Loved the area and Joshua's home.

wonderful for families

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this unique and whimsical apartment. The 2 and 5 year old grandchildren were in heaven with all the special details. We were two blocks from Luxembourg Gardens where the children played in the wonderful play area, rode ponies, watched soccer, and sailed miniature boats. For the adults we enjoyed the big screen for movies, the private patio and the comfortable beds. I would recommend this place for any family outing.

Gorgeous place to stay in Paris. Wonderful Host! Beautiful design and fixtures. Huge outdoor garden.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious Paris home. Joshua is an excellent host - very responsive with our inquiry and arrangements prior to our visit. We loved this home's wonderful open floor plan and huge outdoor garden/outdoor terrace. The apartment has many custom artistic/designer touches: modern fixtures, built-in sinks, seamless cabinets, glass-enclosed master shower, and cinema screen / sliding doors that partitioned the common areas from the private bedrooms. We enjoyed discovering the luxurious design elements, the whimsical art work throughout the home, and the large dog sculpture in the garden. The floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors made the apartment very expansive and bright. We appreciated the automatic exterior window shutters which kept the sunlight out when we were getting over our jetlag the first couple of days. The beds were very comfortable and the built-in dining table was perfect for breakfast before heading out to explore Paris. The detailed neighborhood guide from Joshua was very thoughtful. We loved that Jardin du Luxembourg , restaurants and shops were all so close to the apartment. I also liked that it is on the ground floor so we don't have to climb many stairs after a full day of walking around Paris. This quiet apartment's location is fantastic! We would love to return and stay at this apartment next time we are in Paris. I will certainly recommend this place to my friends. Thank you Joshua and Severine for the bottle of champagne as well! Merci beaucoup!

The property in Saint Germain was amazing. So beautiful and an delightful and quiet garden.

  • 5 of 5

The property in Saint Germain was amazing. Close to the RER for airport transfers and near 3 Metro stations. The best thing about the location is the Luxembourg Gardens and the excellent restaurants in the area. Inviticus was great for us.

My grandchildren loved the bed that pulled down from the ceiling and the garden. They name the wonderful dog sculpture Daisy. We did not use the cinema equipment as we were to busy, but loved the coloured lights in the disco space. There are shutters for privacy and to keep the apartment cool and secure. Overall in all my many travels it is one of my top ten destinations and that is high praise indeed. It was excellent value and Joshua was so considerate and efficient. Will definitely stay there again.
