We were very pleased as to the location of this home. It is only steps away from the NATION metro station! This was the first time for us in Paris, and having the metro so close by was awesome! The house was very clean, and beds were very comfortable. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who visits Paris! It is perfect for a family or several couples. Thanks for letting us enjoy your beautiful city!

Quirky, but French

  • 4 of 5

Great place, but as highlighted in other reviews, this place is only for the agile. Having said that, my 87 year old mother with her prosthetic hip and size 9 feet still managed the stairs - and note, there's lots of them. This apartment is right on the street and near the Nation Station. The food market, that also sells rather lovely knitwear as it happens, is a 10 minute walk away and held each Saturday. Fun fact, if you're around during political upheaval demonstrations pass right past your door - much to our delight while we were there! The courtyard upstairs looked great, but it was already getting a bit cool to enjoy it, but no doubt it's lovely in summer. And there's plenty of boulangeries nearby, even on Sundays!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Owner, Mike was wonderful to deal with. Very informative and nice. The location was great, one block to the metro. Nice, safe neighborhood. The stairs up to the bedrooms are quite steep but no problem. We liked the large dining table to gather around, drink wine and plan our adventures. Mr Marcel was also wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Brooklyn, NY

Perfect location for a group of 5!

  • 4 of 5

The house is perfectly and conveniently located, in the 12th, with metro and bus available practically right outside the front door. Place de la Nation is a major hub & the metro is super easy to figure out. I only wish NYC could follow suit. There are small grocery stores, patisseries and restaurants within 2 blocks.

The owner of the house, from booking through the end of our stay, remained in touch, which was welcoming. The caretaker of the house, Mr. Marcel, explained everything perfectly and gave us pamphlets and suggestions. He is a lovely man with a great story.

The house was built in 1893, and inside it is quirky. I found myself trying to imagine who had lived there during different periods of time. There are two separate staircases leading to bedrooms and bathrooms. I gave the review 4 stars because one bathroom shower seemed to not have hot water all the time (but I truly believe it was a user mistake not the house) & the upstairs shower was wonderful until the plastic piece that holds the shower head up popped off. Still, even with 5 people using one shower—not a problem. 4 1/2 stars then!

It was clean, well stocked, very roomy (everyone had privacy) and secure. I wouldn’t recommend this property to people with mobility issues. There are three terraces (1 has table and chairs), accessible via 2 of the bedrooms. The rooftop terrace has an exterior metal staircase leading to it from one of the other terraces.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there (& the bottles of wine provided for us on our first day) and would not hesitate to book again.

Charming, spacious and just what we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Paris with our 3 adult children and their spouses. It is difficult to find a place to rent with 4 bedrooms and we lucked out in finding this property! It also has 3 bathrooms, which is rare anywhere, and was very much needed with so many people trying to get out the door at the same time. The townhouse also has a small, private deck which were were able to enjoy a couple of evenings which was a treat! The beds are all very comfortable as well. The one thing to note is there are many stairs as this is a multi-level townhouse. This was not an issue for us and would not have been a deal breaker as we are accustomed to this from our travels throughout Europe in the past. Though the location is not within walking distance to many of the main attractions, there are many metro stations within a block or two, including the RER A. This made it very easy and convenient to get where we were going. The neighborhood is very safe with much to offer in way of food, drink, grocery, pharmacy, etc. Mike, the owner is very easy to work with. He was out of town the week we were in Paris and arranged for his caretaker, a kind gentleman by the name of Mr. Marcel, to meet us and help us acclimate to the area. It was a fantastic rental for the 8 of us and we would definitely return!

Large French style home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in this large French style room in a great location. Restaurants and stores were within walking distance and close to metro. Outside the tourist areas which we really enjoyed but all are easily accessible by metro. The owner and house manager were very responsive, friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home including a thoughtful gift of wine on our arrival. Definitely recommend and will be back again to enjoy this wonderful accommodation.
