My husband, grandson, and I were extremely pleased with the apartment we rented. The photos and description we had seem online matched exactly what we found when we arrived. The apartment was clean and well maintained. We were met at the airport by a driver that Thomas had provided and were taken to the apartment where Thomas greeted us. Our bags were taken care of, and we were shown around the apartment and given detailed instructions on how to operated the appliances, etc. Thomas suggested places to grocery shop, locations of good restaurants and the Metro. He left us with his cell phone number and instructions to call whenever we needed him. We cannot express how helpful, kind, and considerate he was, and how this set such a positive tone for our entire stay. We would indeed recommend this apartment and it owner to friends and family. We are looking forward to a return trip this next year. Our focus for the trip this year was to be able to show our 16 year old grandson Paris and to visit the beaches of Normandy (70th anniversary of D-Day). We all felt sad having to leave our wonderful apartment with its three balconies overlooking the quiet neighborhood street. Staying in Thomas' apartment gave us the opportunity to experience life as a Parisian not as a tourist.
