Perfect location & great hosts

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful visit at Chris's apartment! This is an apartment for one person who would rather go out and experience Paris than stay home. And that is perfect for me! I don't cook well and I'd rather go out and experience the great cafes and what Paris has to offer. Who wouldn't? The location is near everything in central Paris - you can walk anywhere, which is what I did. The metro is very close to the apartment and it was a simple trip from the airport. There is a cute little open-air patio - and I spent a lot of time just enjoying it when I was at the apartment. What is stellar is the way Chris and Sebastian treat their customers. Sebastian is the person who manages the property for Chris. I arrived in Paris at the ungodly hour of 6:15 am (won't do that again, no matter how inexpensive it is...) and the apartment wasn't going to be ready until around 3:00 because another renter was leaving that morning. It takes a lot to get a rental ready on the same day as a departure. Sebastian was so kind to meet me at the apartment and let me stow my suitcase at 11:30 - soon after the other renter left, so I wouldn't have to drag it around with me for hours! I spent my time before I could drop off my bag at the lovely café literally down the street and strolled along and read a magazine in the beautiful plaza. Pretty easy to be happy in Paris, regardless. The apartment was clean and ready by 2:30. He really went out of his way to make sure he could accommodate me. He is so kind, helpful and I'll never forget what he did for me. Although it is in a great location of town, the apartment was quiet and the residents in the building are quiet as well. THANK YOU SO MUCH SEBASTIAN!! If I'm ever traveling solo again - I'll book the apartment in a heart beat. (And make sure I have a flight that isn't ridiculous...) - Erin :-)

Perfect location but...

  • 2 of 5

This is my second time booking a place via VRBO. 1st time I had a great experience. This time it didn’t go so well. I gave a star for the location: easy access to Metros, lots of good restaurants, department stores, walking distance to Notre Damme etc. 2nd star goes to the owner and Sebastian, who waited for me and gave me the keys and instructions. Both of them were very helpful and easy to contact.

The place itself is cute, perfect for 2 people, but it needs a little remodeling like the bathroom could use some new shower doors, kitchen sink is old and the faucet wiggles. But what killed my stay was the cockroaches roaming at night and during the day too in the kitchen and every now and then the main room. I was told that the construction work outside the bldg might have caused this infestation and was given a little reimbursement for not being able to use the kitchen which was a nice gesture. But this experience made me reconsider and I’ve started using Hotels instead. Hope they get rid of the roaches and do a little remodeling so that the future guests will enjoy their stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Mel, I'm really sorry that your experience wasn't great. It goes without saying that roaches are unacceptable, no matter how harmless or small they are. Unfortunately, in big cities, this can happen and is actually quite common. This being said, and as I told you, it was the first time in the 11 years that I have this apartment that this problem occurred. I could only link it to the construction work outside in the street the previous months, or potentially the Seine flooding earlier in the year. Also, after you left, neither Sebastien nor myself saw quite as many roaches as you did, we certainly didn’t see any in the main room, maybe that was just a coincidence. But I’m pleased that the reimbursement alleviated your concerns to some extent, which in the end matches the additional night that you had mistakenly booked and asked to get reimbursed. In any case, what Sebastien and I have done is we treated the kitchen and the rest of the apartment with a variety of roach killer products from the top specialised store in Paris. Subsequently, I stayed there myself several times and I didn’t see any more roaches. So fingers crossed, but it looks like there aren’t any left. I also readjusted the shower door which is now much smoother to open. The kitchen sink and faucet are on the to-do list for when I get a new kitchen area, but work perfectly fine for the moment.

Great location and super cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in this quaint first floor apartment. The location is perfect and in the heart of the Marais. Great cafes and shops right around the corner. Metro stop nearby. Walking distance to several museums and Notre Dame. Quiet street and a wonderful private patio. It's compact like any other Paris apartment but everything was very nice and the bed was very comfy. I'll definitely be back next year!

Jewelry Box in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a fantastic 1 month stay at Chris apartment at Le Marais.

On spite to be a studio apartment it is well appointed and confortable.

The location is very good on a quiet short one way street and has a patio that's make a lot of difference.

It's very quiet,excellent WIFI ,TV with English channels.

Very airy apartment with 2 skylights.

It is around the corner from supermarkets, restaurants and bars.

We are a a retire couple from NY and we felt safe in the area and in the apartment.

CHris ,Sebastian and his wife, all of them were very gracious and helpful.

We travel a lot in Europe ,always using VRBO-HOmeaway and we had not been disappointed not even once and we plan to,come back to this beautiful apartment in the near future.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment location was great. The bed is comfortable and the shower is hot. The fact that I did not need to climb stairs was also important. The only drawback for me was the noise. The people upstairs and coming and going were noisy well into the night. Other than that the place was fine. The kitchen is tiny but I did not use it. Internet connection was perfect, no problems.

A Jewel in Le Marais that Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment Sebastien, the friendly manager, opened the door to this flat, I knew I had made the perfect choice. It is exactly as described: quiet, refined elegance, in the heart of Paris. Chris, the owner, answered my emails promptly. The flat is small--but the layout is lovely, and with the outdoor space, this makes the place so cozy. It is located on a quiet lane and is really private. Excellent espresso is just around the corner up Rue Rambuteau at Terres de Cafe. And the Pompidou is a short walk away, as are all the delights of Le Marais, from quaint shops to fine cafes. The apartment was impeccably furnished, and perfectly clean--with a tiny yet well-equipped kitchen, modern bath [shower has great water pressure!], fresh linens and towels--and an atmosphere that truly says 'Paris.' Ideal for one, and romantic for two. I hope to return for a longer stay.

Car: not necessary

You could not be more central in Paris! This studio apartment is the ideal location if you want to discover the entire city.

The Pompidou Center is only 200 meters away, a bit further you'll find Notre Dame, Places des Vosges, the Picasse Museum, the Jewish Museum, Bastille, Les Halles, Ile de la Cité, Ile Saint Louis.... the whole of Paris is literally 'at your feet'.

The Marais is also world-famous for being a shopper's paradise, with most stores even open on Sundays (something rare in France), its restaurants of all price ranges, cafés & bars, but also its cozy quiet squares, old churches, and historical streets and buildings. Only here you can understand why Paris is so romantic.

The two closest métro stations, Rambuteau and Hôtel de Ville, will take you directly to the most interesting areas of the capital such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysees, the Louvre Museum and the Orsay Museum. There's also a 'Velib' bike rental station on the corner.
