My only hesitation in recommending this apartment is that I don't want to increase the likelihood that it will be already booked if we have the opportunity to go to Paris again! The entire experience, from start to finish, was fabulous. The owner is very responsive and hospitable (and went well above the call-of-duty when a family emergency arose), and he distributes excellent tips for making the most of the stay. (He emails advice on sightseeing and running errands in advance and then also makes them available in the apt. itself.) The apartment is extremely comfortable, clean, well-stocked, and very quiet, and the owner leaves clear instructions on how to contact him should any problems arise. (He also calls to make certain that you're well-installed.) He leaves detailed instructions on how to use appliances (e.g., the washer), fixtures (e.g., skylights), and services (e.g. calling a taxi). Although it was not a problem for us, some visitors, depending on their size, might find the small shower in the second bedroom to be unusable. There's always the option, though, of using the spaceous shower in the main bedroom. (In that regard, the apartment might be better suited for a family than for two couples traveling together, depending on the size of the travelers.) We loved the location. Although it is in a quiet residential area, it is within walking distance of many of the major museums and attractions (e.g., Le Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, the Eiffel Tour, L'Arc de Triomphe, Les Tuilleries, the Luxembourg Gardens) as well as restaurants and food shops. We never took the metro or a taxi, except when going to the train station. As others have noted, the proximity to La Grande Epicerie, in particular, is a definite plus; it's as amazing as everyone has noted. We did not do any cooking (although the apt. was well-equipped for anyone who wants to do so), but we were able to pick up delicious breakfast and dinner items to carry back to the apartment. (It is worth noting an extra nice touch, which is that we arrived to find the refrigerator stocked with eggs, yoghurt, and bottled water--a welcome sight after a long, jet-lag-inducing journey.) Luc and Veronique (the owners) and Evelyn (the on-site manager) do everything within their power to make the stay a five-star experience, and they have met with abundant success.
