My husband, two year old daughter and I stayed here for a weekend in April. We really feel we struck gold with this apartment - it is beautifully renovated and furnished, and contained everything we needed. Kate and Chris were great with their communication and Chris was really friendly when he met us at the apartment on Friday.
Kate and Chris were able to supply a really good quality travel cot, mattress and sleeping bag, which is rare to find, and made our trip much easier knowing we didn't have to bring these things. There are also some games in a cupboard to keep everyone entertained, we particularly enjoyed Mr Potato Head and the Orchard Games sets.
We cooked in the apartment on two nights - the tiny kitchen area contains everything you need, and there are various small supermarkets nearby. On the Saturday night we went to La Marine which is just across the canal and was great - we'd recommend this restaurant. Child-friendly, too. The area is clearly quite young and trendy but felt very safe and relaxed.
The apartment was lovely and quiet as it faces onto an inner courtyard, and blissfully cool to return home to at the end of some unseasonably hot and sticky days! It's a short walk to the nearest Metro so is easy to get out and about, we also caught buses and used Uber for a taxi etc. Jardin Villemin is between the apartment and the Gare de l'Est and has a great playground for kids along with nice spaces to relax.
In short, we'd hugely recommend this property. We'll certainly be recommending it to friends and family! We don't tend to return to holiday locations particularly often as there is so much of the world to see, but if we were coming back to Paris we would definitely be booking this place again!
