Why The Owner chose Faubourg-du-Roule

I visit Paris often and I enjoy its culture, foods and history so I decided to buy an apartment there and renovate it to the original Parisian style and character. Arrondissment 8 is perfect because its location is historical and central to all the cafe's, restaurants and entertainment in Paris. I find owning or renting vacation rental much more economical and enjoyable method of vacationing. I also enjoy renting a car and traveling to outside Paris especially the eight course meals at the Chateaus which are about 2 to 3 hours from Paris or closer.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefit of this apartment is the location and the fact that you can walk to a cafe or a major 4 star restaurant. Given that the Metro stop is so close by it makes navigation through Paris a breeze. George V is the Metro Stop and I always send a Metro map to my vacationers to acclimate them to Paris and their location. Monoprix grocery store is a five minute walk from the apartment and when I arrive to Paris I usually buy all the basic essentials for my stay since it gets a bit hectic eating out all the time. I prefer to cook at home and meet friends at a new local restaurant. I have prepared a list of places I have eaten and their address and phone numbers which I send to my vacationers if they are looking for a place to eat. I have also made a list of places to visit while in Paris whether it’s your first time or you have been there before. Whether it’s your first time to this romantic city or you area returner, this apartment is designed to allow you to relax and immerse yourself in the Paris style while you save money.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay in Paris was wonderful. The apartment was in an excellent location...close to the metro and many tour sites. In addition, the apartment was quaint and quiet. The pictures accurately represent this property.

Thank you for a great stay!

Excellent place .. deserves 5 Star but managed out of US and logistics arent very comforting

  • 4 of 5

Location 5 Star

Space 5 Star

Its a wonderful apartment and in the heart of a lovely city. what could you ask for more. ? Everything is nicely done up, neat and clean and well fitting for a family of 4 (Two adults and 2 kids). Could be a bit tight for 4 adults. Proper Beddings / nicely equipped kitchen / neat Bath and a storage room for your stuff and located very close to the super market.

It is close to the Metro but if you are carrying luggage, just take a cab from the airport else. The Local Agent for the apartment thankfully patiently waited for me as i got bit late because of this mistake. The worry was the low point of my stay here. Rest was wonderful.

The Caution:

The check in logistics are a bit cumbersome probably because its managed by the owners office out of US and that makes transactions bit difficult. The late fee by me remains unpaid as the payment mechanism is missing. For this nice place its fine to pay that late check in fee (check in after 6 or pm.. thought its not mentioned anywhere in rental agreement or at the time of booking). So do clear this part. Interestingly my deposit isnt refunded yet .. (over a month now) even though i have requested to adjust it against the late fee. I guess it could be a VRBO issue as well.

All in all I think the owner is very kind to offer such a nice apartment and I was happy to enjoy the hospitality. I would recommend this place without hesitation. I am sure the check in logistics will get sorted out.

Absolutely loved this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I truly enjoyed my stay in this wonderful apartment.

Communication prior to my arrival could not have been better. I found Linda to be very helpful and professional.

The instructions on how to find the apartment were detailed and easy to follow. I was met by a local agent with the key and he gave me a quick tour before leaving me to my own devices.

The apartment is located in a nice old building. I was glad to see the entrance was very secure and the lift to the 4th floor was useful for my heavy bags.

The apartment itself has everything you could need. Large, light living area with spacious sofa. Carpeted bedroom with a very comfortable bed. A well stocked bathroom, incl washing machine. Tiny kitchen, not really very good for cooking but perfect for putting together a baguette. This place quickly felt like home, with Wi-Fi a big plus.

The location is fantastic. Very close to George V metro, which is only a short ride to the center of town. You can also walk in, its not too far at all. Paul's bakery downstairs is convenient for good coffee, pastries and bread. Monoprix is close by for all shopping needs.

I would happily stay here again, should I be lucky enough to come back to Paris. Merci!

Great location, poor customer service

  • 3 of 5

Location of this apartment is desirable and accessible to Georges V metro. The photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. The apartment's large antique windows face the inner courtyard of a relatively busy mall that faces the Champs-Elysees. The directions provided detailed exactly how to access the building.

We were pleased that the rental agent FedEx'd the electronic building pass card and apartment key (keys) to our US address. However, the sticky part was when we were expected to return the keys from France at our expense ($$ + 1/2 day of our holiday time). FedEx France is different from FedExUS. There are only 2 FedEx offices in Paris and there are NO drop boxes anywhere in France. The rental agent did not supply specific shipping instructions, documents or envelope to facilitate the key return.

A nice apartment in a great area, but too much trouble to deal with when there are so many other comparable apartments in the same arrondissement.

Owner's Response: We take extra care and pride in providing the highest level of customer service and quality accommodations to our travelers. This traveler refused to follow the key return policy which caused complications for our next traveler's arrival.

I've Already Recommended this Flat to Friends - I Will Stay Here Again.

  • 4 of 5

Aside from a few glitches locating the flat (the instructions said to go left off the lift but in reality you go RIGHT), and then activating the wifi, we had a very comfortable stay here. The owner's representatives were immediately responsive to our issues, which was huge. There is a larger sofa in the living room than what is represented in the photos. My daughter said the sofa bed was quite comfortable and I found the bed in the bedroom to be very comfortable, as well. There is indeed a rollaway bed in the coat closet, as well as extra bedding. A previous reviewer said something about the floor - it appears it is the original hardwood flooring (bedroom is carpeted), which I found very charming and learned quickly not to go barefoot on. I will stay there again because of the cleanliness, comfort and location of the flat, as well as the responsiveness of the owner/owner representatives when we had an issue.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, near all the sites and shopping. Enjoyed easy access to groceries, cafes, restaurants and metro. Spacious living area but small kitchen. Quiet and comfortable. Not ideal for young kids but was certainly workable.

Owner's Response: Thank you Yes the location is very accessible and given the Paris Apartment has a full kitchen the groceries is just a 10 min walk from the Paris apartment and the Paris metro George V, Line 1 is only a 5 minute walk

Will Stay Somewhere Else Next Time

  • 3 of 5

Despite more than one e-mail to contact advising of our mode and time of arrival, no one met us with a key. Luckily, the owner of the Kodak store in the mall was able to reach someone to let us in. Very concerned that we would have to find a hotel for the first night. Not a good start, ownership representative did not bother to respond to my e-mail complaint. We did not feel welcome in this apartment, maybe because of absentee ownership.

Location great, near George V metro station and 2 minute walk to the Champs Elysee. Apartment has some deferred maintenance issues with floor and kitchen is very small. There are so many apartments for vacation rental in the same area, I would probably stay somewhere else next time.
