About Julien

My name is Julien and I am the owner of Marais-Beaubourg. Since September 2010, I have tried to offer my foreign visitors a home to live like a real Parisian for a few days or a few weeks.

I have done my best to make Marais-Beaubourg both comfortable and luxurious. I decorated the apartment with beautiful furniture and elegant details. I guarantee a clean and well-maintained apartment. I make every effort to keep it up to the high standards I believe my tenants deserve.

Julien purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Julien chose Paris Arr. 4 (Marais, Hotel de Ville)

I want you to be part of stay in unique surroundings and explore the city like a local. This apartment took your breath away when you first step in. The ceiling, original features, attention to detail in the furnishings and plush facilities makes it unique. It is truly a wonderful space to enjoy the best that Paris has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

-Well equipped & comfortable:

High-speed Wifi, High quality bed sheets and pillows (600 thread-count), unlimited free calls to landlines and cell phones in the US and Canada, home cinema, computer, king-sized bed, high quality sofa bed, A/C unit.

-Attentive owner:

I am available and quick to respond whenever you have questions before and after your stay. I'm happy to recommend any restaurant or activity. I can provide extra services on request (wine, champagne, local cell phone, etc.) and book a taxi or a restaurant for you.

-Personal welcome:

The reception person will welcome you on arrival and help you with your luggage. He will give you recommendations and advices to ensure your experience is a truly ‘local’ one. You will also receive a 'Welcome Box' including: washer & dishwasher tablets, nespresso coffee capsules, shampoo & bath gel.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay at this stylish apartment very much. We are a family of 4 - mom, dad, 15 year old son and 12 year old daughter. The location was fantastic - we could walk to Notre Dam and Pompidou Center, we rented bikes to ride to Eiffel Tower & Louvre, and the Paris metro was close by and easy to manage. Numerous good restaurants and shops nearby.

Communication with Julien was always swift and the arrangements were easy. We used Paypal for all of the financial transactions which worked out very well.

It was a perfect place to stay - so elegant, very well decorated. The views out the multiple windows were simply wonderful - nothing beats waking up to the beautiful city of Paris. Although the location is central, the actual street is quiet. We slept very well. We found that staying in an apartment with full kitchen helped keep our food budget manageable.

Good location, close to metro

  • 4 of 5

Nice location. Apartment is near the top with a very open and well lit. A nice walk to either metro lines, plenty of good restaurants near by. One block to street with meat/fish/veg and great bakery!

The owner should fix the door bell and provide a couple extra towels.

I will recomended without a doubt.

  • 5 of 5

Positives: great location (10-15 min from the Halles, train that goes to Charles de Gaulle and versaille airport and 5-10 from another local subway station) , great bed, great bathroom and well equipped and the best particularly because we had one day really hot, Air conditioning!. Reasonable size bathroom and shower. Sofa bed decent for my 9 years old. Walking distance from Notre Dame and other attraction.

So So: I explained to manager that I was going to be at the apartment at 1:30-1:45. I was there at 1:40. I called and email the manager and no answer. I was told few days before that someone else was supposed to wait for us at the aparment. I call and text that person and no answer. After 20-30 min of a lot of stress not knowing if we had or not the apartment, I called again and the person who was supposed to be at the apartment said that she was there at 1:30 pm and we were not there. Fortunalty, she was in the apartment in 10 min but it was a big scare not knowing that we were going to be in the apartment or not. Communication, communication... I am glad that I had a cell phone and still I don't know why here in France they hardly answer a text message. it happens with another property.

Overall, we could not be happier. Without a doubt I will recommend this apartment for two adults and 1-2 kids confortably if with compare with the rest of European comfort. My keys points in this property was a queen size bed, location and air conditioning and you will hardly find these things in Paris.

Lovely 3 month stay

  • 5 of 5

You cannot ask for a better apartment in Paris. The interior is comfortably furnished, lots of light and views from the windows, the bedroom is inviting and completely dark at night, the kitchen has essentials- but why cook when you are in Paris?, and the building is safe (women traveling alone, need not worry). The neighborhood is amazing. There's tons of shopping, it's quite safe, surrounded by cafe's and restaurants, and walking distance to all the tourist attractions. The Metro is close by if you don't like to walk. The owner is kind, helpful, and genuinely concerned about his tenants. I'm trying to think of the negatives but...I honestly can't think of any (that apply to this apartment specifically ie. noise- you would experience this anywhere in Paris and same with the stairs). This is a great place to come home to for a few days or an extended retreat. Thank you Julien.

Nice Apartment, Great location

  • 4 of 5

Can't say enough about the location of this property! The apartment was as described in the listing, however the TV was complicated to work and should have had a bit more information for English language channeling. I tried to use the computer provided, but the password posted did not work, good thing I had my IPad, as the WiFi was very reliable. All in all it was a lovely apartment and I would recommend it for two people.

Great location and functional apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great for a young family or a couple who like to get to most places on foot with the occasional bus or metro ride. A fantastic neighbourhood with great bakeries, supermarkets and fruit shops around the corner. The stairs up to the apartment didn't bother us but may be an issue for older people or someone with dodgy knees. Overall a beautiful apartment in a great location.

Car: not necessary

Fantastic Marais location with shopping on rue Rambuteau including fresh fish, an Italian deli, a famous pastry shop and fresh vegetable and fruit store. There is also a large choice of bistros and restaurants nearby. The dance centre with courtyard restaurant is a must! Its only a short walk to the Picasso museum, Carnavalet museum and the Place des Vosges. The Notre Dame is just over the River Seine..... of course the Beaubourg museum is only 200 meters away.
