I will definitely return

  • 5 of 5

In January, at very short notice, I was given the opportunity to write an article on "Paris: Dream Shopping".

So I came online and looked for avenue Montaigne. Up came this charming flat and I wrote to Vikki and within an hour we had a deal. It couldn't have been easier. I had working meetings in the living room. I loved the comfort of the bedroom and bath (new comfort and polished marble). The kitchen has all mod cons and is pretty with a view over the gardens. The property manager was extremely helpful and was always available to answer any question I might have had. Needless to say,avenue Montaigne's beautiful shops were at my doorstep. e.g. Valentino, Prada, Dior, Nina Ricci, Louis Vuitton. A delightful stay and next time I am in Paris, I will definitely return.

Best possible location and such comfort!

  • 5 of 5

What i really love is the whole feeling of the place.

Walking down ave Montaigne is magic and the restaurants and cafés are such fun.

I like the bedroom wall-paper with it's Italian balcony feel. Great French beds.

The tv in the living room has been changed and they should change the photo

Lots of light and trees and quiet at night.

Best Regards,

Beautiful apartment in one of the best locations in Paris.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful apartment located in one of the best streets in Paris.

We have stayed on three occasions and the last time was for four weeks while I was working in Paris.

Vikki was most helpful with all the arrangements and her greeters were also extremely thorough and patient.

The apartment is very clean and tidy and has everything one would need for a stay in Paris.

Located on the third floor and accessible by lift.

The building entrance is manned by a concierge, and the apartment is very secure and safe.

It is also very light, with large windows throughout, and plenty of fresh air.

The view from the front windows is onto the beautiful avenue Montaigne, and across the road is the best hotel in Paris, the Plaza Athenee, which creates a lovely panorama to look out onto.

The apartment is very spacious and has a large separate lounge area for reading or watching television.

The TV has ample channels in French and English.

Wifi is easy to connect and very strong in all areas of the apartment.

The kitchen is also very large and well equipped, and we cooked many meals during our stay.

The kitchen also has a freezer, washer/dryer, and dishwasher which served us very well.

The entrance foyer serves as a comfortable dining area, or alternatively you can move the dining table into the spacious lounge area.

The bathroom is more than adequate in size and function, and there are two toilets in the apartment which is an added bonus.

In terms of location, it would be hard to find a better place in Paris. The apartment is right above many of the best couture shops, and the area is filled with wonderful restaurants and sites. Pont D’Alma and the Eiffel Tower are minutes away and we would often take a sunset stroll along the Seine after dinner.

Metro stations are close by with easy access to all parts of the city.

All in all, 12 Avenue Montaigne has everything and more, and we would thoroughly recommend it to all who visit to Paris.

Owner's Response: It is so kind of Geoff to write this review. It is absolutely delightful to be appreciated in this way. My greeters and I try to please and create a perfect place for our guests. It is, I hope, going to attract future guests who will want to be treated with great attention on our part. And then ave, Montaigne is pure magic. So, future guests, please know we intend to keep up our standards and would love to have more happy guests who wish to write more such reviews. Fondly, Vikki

This is an excellent place to stay in Paris!

First off, Nanda (the manager) is a consummate gentleman to deal with. He was very quick to respond to our inquires and was extremely helpful when asked specific questions about locations, guidance and advice on a trip to Paris.

His recommendations for restaurants was outstanding!

We're delighted with this lovely and well appointed apartment.

If you are visiting Paris, you probably aren't spending a lot of time indoors, but in case you do,the apartment has everything you need.

Nanda takes great pride in the condition of Vikki's apartment and it shows - it is absolutely spotless.

It is decorated very tastefully and has that beautiful view overlooking Avenue Montainge and the well known Hotel Plaza Athénée.

It is located in a wonderful neighbourhood, minutes from the Eiffel Tower, great restaurants, and shopping - Dior, Armani, Valentino, Prada and many more luxury stores just around the corner!

We felt extremely safe in this apartment. The building is extremely quiet and rarely saw anybody. We also enjoyed good restful nights sleep.

It's 5 minutes from the front door to the Champs Élysées beautiful green.

It is also close to the Musee de Orsay, the Louvre, and Notre Dame and other places in other easy to access directions. Restaurants, a market, pharmacy, and other needed places are also nearby.

Life is pretty great in the 8th arr.

We definitely recommend this apartment for your stay!

Many, many thanks Vikki and Nanda!

My Fiancee and I were so excited to celebrate our engagement by spending 2 weeks in Paris at a this spacious looking residence, cooking at home in a roomy kitchen and having dinner in the dining room or even on the balcony overlooking Ave Montaigne. Then going to sleep in a wonderful king size bed. First, to be very fair and conservative, the pictures represent the apartment to be at least TWICE the size that it actually is. When we got there to our shock, there is no dining room. The dining room is the desk table at the front door entrance that has been moved to the middle of the Foyer with the only chairs in the apartment placed under the table. The balcony is not a balcony as implied in the pictures but a railing that is bolted across the door/window overlooking Ave Montaigne . And the King Size bed is actually two twin beds each with depressed centers placed under a larger than king size headboard. And finally the kitchen is MICRO in size. Where is the refrigerator, the freezer, and the washer? They are miniature appliances under the left side counter in the picture! I have never seen 2 foot by 2 foot appliances like this in my life. Not to mention the leftover food in the freezer and water dripping from the refrigerator. And we were told that when we clean the apartment, the vacuum cleaner in the closet does NOT work. We felt terrible. We immediately decided we were not going to stay there and informed Nanda the apartment manager and Vikki the owner. We had no choice but to stay in Hotels (Plural.) It was fashion week in Paris and when we finally found a place at 10pm the first night, we had to move to 4 different hotels during our stay.

We are not unreasonable people and there is the saying 'Buyer Beware." So I explained this to Nanda and instead of asking for our full payment due to severe misrepresentation, I offered that we split it in half and be on our way. Even though now we would be paying to stay in hotels in Paris. I spoke with Vikki the owner and she said she would call me back. She never returned my initial call. I called her at least two times and Nanda also asked her to call me. She never responded during our stay. We contacted HomeAway and they have been wonderful. Because of the owners insensitivity and misrepresentation (she admitted that she took the pictures herself), we are going after a total refund. The unit has been rented for over 6 years and there have been only 4 other reviews? Interesting....

Owner's Response: The problem here has nothing to do with the apartment. Simon T LIED to the woman accompanying him when he told her there was maid service. She wanted to go to a Hotel as had been promised her. They checked in, saw the whole apartment, signed the contract, left the key deposit, began to unpack, all the while asking the property manager to arrange maid service - we don´t know anyone we can guarantee. Hours later the property manager called to see if they needed anything - they wanted a refund so they could go to a Hotel. My refund policy printed on the listing is a very generous 100% refund, 30 days before check in, or 50% refund 15 days before check in. People who want Hotels should not rent apartments on VRBO. Then began the BLACKMAIL. Simon T began threatening to write a bad review, to contact lawyers, to do many different menacing things. VRBO says they have a strict 'NO BLACKMAIL POLICY'. By rights his review should not have been published. The apartment is exactly the same size as the plan on the listing and the photographs are not done wide angle lenses. As you can see VRBO, does not feel I misrepresented anything or my listing would not be here.

Lovely apartment/excellent location/very kind people

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Paris in Vikki's exceptional apartment, made even more so with the kindness and care of Nanda. The apartment is beautiful, elegant, clean and perfectly appointed in a very clean and secure building. The neighborhood is superb, safe and located just blocks off the Champs Elysee in one direction and the River Seine in the other! Nanda met us when we arrived; greeting us with great warmth and concern for our comfort. He spent significant time acquainting us with the apartment and neighborhood; even showing us where we could shop for groceries. We highly recommend this opportunity/accomodation in Paris and will hope for a return stay in the future. Thank you so very much!
