Paris Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our recent trip to Paris. The apartment was perfect for our stay! We loved the Marais area and its proximity to many cafes and shops. It was also very convenient to the metro stations. The pictures do not do this apartment justice...it is even better in person! We look forward to returning some day.

Comfortable Apartment in a Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a marvelous week at this apartment on the edge of the Marais. It would be difficult to find a better location in this area for cafes, shops, and walking proximity to museums (Picasso, Pompidou, Carnavalet), Place des Vosges, Place de la Bastille (wonderful Sunday market). Nearby metro stations (Hotel de Ville, Rambuteau) offer quick and easy access to everything else. The apartment itself is well-furnished, comfortable, and spacious (by Parisian standards, very spacious). The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are contemporary with excellent showers. The kitchen is small but has everything you need to prepare morning coffee and a meal if you tire of eating out. Booking is quick and easy, questions answered cheerfully, and when you arrive Roland, the caretaker, is cheerful and helpful, providing good advice and booking cabs for trips to the airport. This is an excellent choice for one or two couples or a family with teenagers, especially as a convenient and affordable alternative to hotels.

Perfect Paris! Best Beds and location.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 2 mothers and 2 ~14 year old girls. We just got home from our fabulous stay in Paris at this divine apartment that met all our needs. The beds were scrumptious and the decor a delight! I love the Maraise with it's neighborhood feel.Place de Voges is an easy walk as is Notre Dame and many, many chocolate shops, fruit stands, patisseries etc. It is my favorite place to stay. As an American i find the right bank friendlier. (maybe it's just me!) There are two metro stops very close by. We were so busy while we were there we never even turned the TV on! Roland was so very kind and helpful. I loved that he called a maxi taxi for us to get us to the airport upon departure. Sheila & Roland have thought of everything to make one's stay a pleasure. If i had to pick a problem i would say the street side bedroom is a bit loud on Friday cafe night! It is a lively crowd for sure. I feel this could be easily remedied by shutters perhaps...? i noticed some of the other flats have them. Or very easily by purchasing a "white noise" machine to put between window and bed to muffle street noise. I found ear plugs worked well. That said, i can not wait to return to this flat in a year or two with my whole family of 5 next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind review- we are delighted you enjoyed! In fact, there are metal shutters on the exterior of the windows which can be closed for greater noise protection, but we will look into a 'white noise' generator as you suggest. Of course, in the summer months, that sound is generated by the portable air conditioners. Let us know when you would like to return to Paris!

A truly Parisian experience.

  • 5 of 5

After many weeks of searching we decided on this apartment and we could not have been happier. We (2 adults and 2 girls, 15 & 21) stayed for 11 nights over Christmas and New Year. It truly is in the heart of the wonderful Marais with the most fabulous cafés, boulangeries, patisseries, chocolatiers, wine shops and everything else you could possibly want all within a few minutes walk. There are several metro stops close by too. The apartment is well set up and has everything we needed. The beds are small (doubles but we are used to a king size) but the linens were excellent quality. Having 2 bathrooms was great as there were 4 of us. We particularly loved the dining room and the excellent compact kitchen. We really felt like we immersed ourselves into the Parisian lifestyle and this apartment was perfect for us. The booking process was easy and we were warmly welcomed by Roland. We would definitely recommend this apartment and the Marais area is definitely the best place to stay.

Fantastic best location ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful apartment for one week and couldn't ask for anything more. I had read all the reviews and thought it couldn't be that good but it was. The apartment, the lively neighbourhood, the cleanliness of the unit and Roland who was there to meet us and explain everything. Wonderful! I would stay there again in a heartbeat and it made our trip to Paris exceptional.

Doesn't get any better!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect Parisian apartment in a wonderful Marais location! Apartment has a well equiped kitchen, dining room, 2 large bedrooms and baths (one en-suite), and a good sized living room. Wi-fi connection is a plus!

Roland was a delight and was most helpful in orienting us to the apartment and neighborhood.

Many cafes and bistros nearby. Hotel de Ville and Bastille metro stops can be reached in less than a 5 minute walk.

Would most certainly book this apartment again.... you'd be hard pressed to find anything better!!!
