From the beginning of the booking process till check out, the owner was very friendly and detailed oriented to ensure everything was good to go. The owner very prompt with answers to questions and we had no communication issues at all. He was pleasant and reasonable. When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner's daughter, Mathilde who was very sweet and informative. She had beautiful bouquet of flowers and a bottle of wine for us. The flat was so spacious, especially considering Paris/Europe, very clean with updated appliances in the kitchen and bathrooms. plenty of clean towels and kitchen wares for a large family. Rooms were lovely with lot's of sun light, storage spaces, nice linens. They even had a power strip converted for US electronics, no problem for all family members smart phones to be charged up at once. It's conveniently located on the metro line 3, St Maur stop. We (7 girls) had no problems walking around at night after sightseeing in the city. It's about 10-15 min metro ride into main attractions in Paris, about 30-45 min walk from the flat. Metro is clean, safe and convenient. There are many food markets, restaurants and bakeries near the flat, which made our stay even more enjoyable, living like Parisians. Recommend checking out open air market on Sunday morning near Plaza De La Bastille, 15 min walk from the flat. Staying in such lovely flat with kind welcoming by Mathilde made our Paris trip even more memorable, especially for my teenage nieces who visited Paris for the first time.
