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 my home in Paris 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 Monnaie

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.

Great location, Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The location is great and was very walkable. The street is quiet and close to lots of restaurants, shops and bars. It is a quick walk to Notre Dame, The Louvre and St. Germaine shopping. The apartment has everything we needed and Steven gave us a great overview when he met us. We would stay here again the next time we are in Paris!

Perfect location! Warm and cozy. Well supplied kitchen. Quiet for a wonderful night’s sleep.

  • 5 of 5

Will definitely book again. Very clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. Location could not be better. Perfect for a sisters’ get away! Only suggestion would be some sort of handhold to help get in and out of shower for those of us at a certain age! Sink was only thing to brace yourself on and that is not ideal for many reasons. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Cozy apartment in an awesome location!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this apartment. It’s just a few steps from St. Michel, yummy restaurants, and the metro! My 3 young kids loved the loft with the twin beds! The appliances were all functional and having a washer/dryer totally helped! Steven met us at the location and helped us get acquainted with the place. I highly recommend! I would definitely stay here again in the future!

Cozy little spot in a great location

  • 5 of 5

One block from St. Michel Metro/RER stations. This means you can come in from CDG airport without a transfer. Makes it so easy, no carrying luggage from train to Metro. Ground floor apartment in a courtyard building. Quiet except for garbage cans in courtyard. Construction being done in another apartment was loud but we were out most of day.

Near to cafes, restaurants, takeaways, bars.

More than enough towels for the four of us. Plenty of paper goods and even spices, oil, vinegar, coffee filters and coffee I assumed was left by previous renters. How thoughtful!! All other apartments I've rented have had completely empty cupboards.

Maeva met us and was very helpful. Jeff, the owner, worked with me regarding fragrance issues (I have allergies)and was very helpful when the VRBO website was incorrectly charging our second payment.

Don't hesitate to stay here. We will return when in Paris!

Private, centrally located and comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here a week and found the apartment very comfortable and ideally located for the four of us. In spite of being in the middle of the city, it has zero traffic noise. Restaurants, transportation, walking around, ambiance, etc are all five stars. Steven, our greeter, met us at the location and did an excellent job stepping us through all the ins and outs of the apartment. The WiFi was solid and the washer/dryer unit was clean and functional. The two kids loved the loft area above the kitchen. All the local restaurant recommendations were dead-on fantastic and/or charming. We'd definitely choose to stay here again.

The only reasons I cannot give it 5 stars are the following: 1) Be aware that there is major remodelling/construction work going on within or next to the building from 8am to 6pm every day except weekends. While it did not affect our sleep, it wasn't comfortable to remain in the apartment during the day because of the construction noise. 2) The apartment is on the ground floor 15 feet away from the building's garbage bins, and the sound from neighbors dropping off their glass recyclables in the early morning can be jarring and 3) The shower drain is clogged (we had to get around this by taking "military" showers to allow the water to slowly drain). These items did not seriously affect our enjoyment of the apartment, but anyone considering staying here should ask if #1 and #3 remain a concern.

Charming, Efficient and Perfectly located in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect! Fantastic location. Quiet and super clean. Plenty of towels and useful appliances. Steven, the manager, met us at the apartment and patiently explained how everything works and where to buy amazing food. Unfortunately we had to leave early due to family emergency at home. Steven was very helpful in arranging for a taxi to get us to the airport. My husband & I travel frequently and have stayed in many very nice hotels but I have to say that we did not miss any of them during our stay in Jeff's apartment. We loved it!
