About Jeff

My parents bought this apartment in 1961. I've lived in it during my studies and had the opportunity to experience some of the best years of my life in this neighborhood. I now share my live between France and the U.S working in real estate. I love animals and small well-behaved doggies are welcome in the apartment.

Jeff purchased this apartment in 1961

Why Jeff chose 6th St-Germain-des-Pres

It really is a 'secret' place in the heart of the city. The building was erected around 1760. Some original features in the apartment date back to the construction days, such as an old wooden beam on which a carpenter practiced his talent. When the windows are open, you can hear the bells of Notre-Dame in the distance.

A security safe in the wall is available.

What makes this apartment unique

Just so central.

You can get anywhere in a matter of minutes.

The architect who designed the Louvre pyramid lived in this building two floors above while the works were in progress.

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is Perfect in Every Way! We arrived late into Paris and when we arrived at the flat Steven was waiting outside the door to greet us and was more than accommodating! He showed us every detail of the home along with a perfect information book that has been put together to provide you awesome places to eat, visit, and have a drink to relax! We are a family of 5, children ages 17, 12, & 8 and it was perfect for us. The flat is so chic and tastefully decorated and very clean! The master bed is unbelievably comfortable!! LOVED IT after a day of walking the streets of Paris. The 2 younger children enjoyed their escape upstairs while our oldest had enough room downstairs to stretch out on the pull-out sofa and use the wifi! You are honestly in the heart of Paris and have access to EVERYTHING! The St. Germain area of Paris is not only beautiful but has a ton of options for anything you are looking for! Our stay in Paris was perfect - we cannot wait to return and WILL only stay here! Thank you Jeff and Steven for the stay in your beautiful home and we cannot wait to return!

Cozy and convenient in the heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5

We adored staying in this perfect apartment, large enough for three women. Having three beds was ideal, and the kitchen and bathroom included amenities like great towels, coffee maker and a washer/dryer. Thoughtful touches included a selection of electrical power converters, hair dryer, a selection of travel books, an informative apartment guide and a safe.

Steven was extremely accommodating and pleasant -- made sure we had great restaurant recommendations, and was available for anything we needed.

Most wonderful is the location, right in the heart of Paris.

Definitely would return to this property!

Perfect location, comfortable, many amenities

  • 5 of 5

We are very pleased with this rental. The agent, Steven, gave us a thorough walk through the apartment, and provided excellent recommendations to restaurants in the neighborhood. He even ordered our taxi back to the airport because we don't speak French. The apartment has everything needed for comfort and convenience - comfortable bed, kitchen, good bathroom with excellent shower, wifi, laundry facilities in the apartment, and a phone with no charge to call back to the US. There is also a loft with an additional sleeping area. There are many guidebooks in the living room. The location is very close to the Metro, the Ile de la Cite, and every area we wanted to visit was within walking distance - Luxembourg Gardens, Orsay Museum, Arc de Triumphe, the Marais, the Louvre and the Tuileries. We highly recommend this apartment.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as described. It was in a lively area on a quiet street. We really enjoyed staying there and would like to stay there again sometime. Pre trip communication was great. Perfect for my husband and I and college aged daughter. We never used the kitchen because there were so many restaurant choices nearby. It was hot during the day (heatwave in July) but cooled off nicely at night. It was a great experience. Enjoy!

A great find. Stay here.

  • 5 of 5

Jean Francois (Jeff) was extremely helpful and responsive in all our correspondence. We've been to Paris many times, but since we had limited time and wanted to show Paris to our three boys who haven't been there since they were too young to remember it well, we really wanted to stay in a location close to the major attractions. The boys are now ages 10, 14 and 17 -- and the five of us fit comfortably. We were a little worried about noise and hubbub being so close to the St Michel fountain area. But while this apartment couldn't be in a more central spot, it was also absolutely quiet and secluded in a courtyard. The apartment is stylish, clean and practical. And though it isn't a "budget" style accommodation, we thought it was a great value. We would definitely return.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 4 nights in early June. There were three of us: self, husband and 17 year old niece. The location is perfect, literally just a few minute walk (less than 5) from two metro stops and a number of great restaurants. It's off a small side street and on the interior of a private courtyard. Stephen met us outside the apartment as we arranged, and the transaction was smooth and perfect. We also bumped into him mid-visit as he was getting mail, and he checked again to see that all was as expected. He also arranged for a taxi to take us to an early flight on departure. While the location and the hospitality were exceptional, the actual apartment was out of this world. The apartment is beautiful, charming and functional. The apartment had tall ceilings with beautiful beams, high windows, and opened to a private courtyard view. The bed was king-size and comfortable. The sleeping loft was perfect for a teenager. It gave her space and privacy. The bath was roomy, with a larger than expected shower with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. We also had plenty of towels and linens. While we never cooked at the apartment, we did use the refrigerator, dishes and glasses, and washing machine. We will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this VRBO!
