About Jennifer M.

Cobblestone Paris Rentals is a small, customer oriented, Vacation Rental Company.

It all began in 2004 when Ryan and Jennifer took a vacation to Paris and chose to rent a furnished apartment instead of staying in a hotel. They chose an apartment in the 4th Arrondissement on the charming Rue de Petit Musc, in the amazing Marais quarter of Central Paris. The apartment was in a 350 year old house built for a local 17th Century Parisian nobleman. They stayed on the 4th floor, with no elevator of course, in what was probably the servant quarters. Ryan and Jennifer may have been living like servants, but felt like royalty.

They walked the streets of this wonderful city for a week and explored every quiet park, magnificent building, and cobble stone street. Upon returning home to Los Angeles, California, the magic of their Paris memories stayed with them. They dreamed of one day buying an apartment in Paris and moving there permanently. It was only a dream, something for retirement perhaps, but it never left them.


Jennifer M. purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jennifer M. chose Notre Dame

One day in 2006, while he was on a business trip to Paris, Jennifer sent Ryan a listing of a studio apartment that she had seen for sale on the internet. To kill some time Ryan made the visit. Without a second thought he made an offer to purchase the apartment that very day. It was an impulse purchase, totally unplanned, and completely influenced by emotion but Ryan and Jennifer never regretted their decision.

Studio La Fontaine became the name of the studio apartment that Ryan purchased that day. It was located on an adorable cobblestone square with a small Parisian fountain in the center. From their home in Los Angeles, they began to advertise and rent the apartment to tourists from around the world. Little Studio La Fontaine still makes many Parisian dreams come true. Ryan and Jennifer used their love of Paris and their understanding of North American customer service to create magical Parisian holidays and to help guests experience Paris as locals.


What makes this apartment unique

One at a time, new apartments were added, and Cobblestone Paris Rentals was born.

Less than two years from their first trip to Paris, Cobblestone Paris became a full time job and their dream became a reality, and Ryan and Jennifer moved to Paris.

Cobblestone hopes to help you have a wonderful holiday by providing you with a lovely apartment, great service, and Parisian memories that will last a lifetime.

Bon Voyage and See You in Paris Soon!

Merci, Ryan & Jennifer

Perfect in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Didn't take the cruise but loved the location and the ambience in the apartment. Everything we needed was there and available. Our greeter, David, was incredible and explained everything plus the "how-to" and "what to do" book was extremely helpful. Top marks.

A great stay and we'll check Cobblestone for future rentals.

Beautiful and charming apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was elegant and comfortable. The beauty of Paris outside continues inside this lovely apartment - we truly felt immersed in the city!

Our greeter was so sweet and very thorough as she got us settled into the apartment. We will always book through Cobblestone on future trips to Paris.

Great Stay !

  • 5 of 5

Great location...all the amenities...very helpful staff...all equaled a terrific stay and memories! Truly everything that it was advertised. Allowed us to keep luggage after our stay because it was not being used right away which gave us a free afternoon without lugging them around. No complaints at all...Rick Steves' know what he is talking about.

Car: not necessary

This is the best location in Paris, you are truly in the center. You can walk absolutely everywhere from here.

Beautiful and peaceful, it is absolutely perfect.

Ile de le Cite is often called the heart of Paris. Indeed, a small bronze marker on the island marks the exact center of the city. This island was occupied by numerous people historically as Paris was settled and built up, and many of the famous features of Paris can be found on it, including Notre Dame de Paris, Sainte Chapelle, and the Palais de Justice. The island has long been at the administrative and religious heart of Paris, and wandering it is an excellent way to spend an afternoon.
