Christmas in Paris

  • 2 of 5
Christmas week of this past year my daughter and I spent a week in Eugene’s apartment in Paris. It is a nice, cozy, and secure. We had a great time in Paris and a good time in the apartment but we did have some issues.
We had cold water for 4 days in December which was a problem. His “guy“ in Paris was great and came over Christmas Eve day to try and get it fixed but, it was only on the 5th day. that we had enough water for two fast showers. And there was a construction project next door that, for four days, started work at 6:30 in the morning.
We did talk to Eugene about all this and were reimbursed a small portion of our money. We understand things happen, but Eugene's responses started to take a tone of belittling our knowledge of hot water systems, and implied that we weren't being truthful about the hot water problems. Towards the 4th of day he actually stopped responding to our emails about the issue. It would have been nice to have “So sorry this happened I know it was an inconvenience.” That didn't happen. It is a lovely apartment when all is going well..... but if there are issues we might offer a word of caution about dealing with Eugene.

Owner's Response: Gwen waited several days to inform us of the hot water problem. Being Christmas the plumber wasn't immediately available. He came on the following business day and fixed the problem. No further repairs were necessary. There have been no problems since. I compensated her for the inconvenience.
The building next door started some work early in the mornings around Christmas. It was not legal at that hour of the morning. Complaints were filed by other people in our building and it has stopped.
I expressed my apologes to her and she accepted compensation for her inconvenience. I think this says more about her than about the apartment.

Perfect way to enjoy Paris

  • 5 of 5
We loved our one week stay at Gene and Deborah's apartment on Blvd Bourdon in the 4th A. The apartment was walking distance from all of our favorite neighborhoods including the Isle Saint Louis, the Marais, Notre Dame, Bastille and Saint-Germain. There were 4 Metro stations all within 5 minutes walk, and many good small restaurants in the neighborhood. The Boulanger 50 meters away had the best croissants and baguettes for breakfast and lunch. The kitchen was compact but was supplied with everything we needed, plus things we didn't think we needed, like an orange juice squeezer and espresso maker. There was an airy sun filled living room with comfortable armchairs and sofa for reading or watching TV, and a sunny dining area where we enjoyed our breakfasts. On warm days we could have tea or coffee on a little veranda overlooking the Canal Saint-Martin. The wi-fi and phone service were great and there was a washer dryer which made it possible to travel lighter. All the plumbing worked great, including a nice shower/bath. The separate toilet was a bit tight. Gene provided lots of good written orientation materials and restaurant recommendations to make our stay easier. The owners were also happy to offer advice by phone if needed. All in all it couldn't have worked out better for the three of us (married couple plus single friend). This was by far our best visit to Paris, thanks to the lovely apartment and our helpful hosts. We recommend without reservation. It looks even better than the pictures!

Living la vie Parisienne!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Eugene's lovely apartment on the canal for a week at the end of May 2013. It was the perfect choice for our family of four, with 2 kids aged 8 and 11, during a week of unseasonably cold wet weather. On a couple of days, defeated by the elements, we were very pleased to beat retreat to our charming accommodation, to sip wine and relax, and feel that even though we weren't on the boulevards or in the museums we were still enjoying 'la vie parisienne'. The apartment is very spacious, with 2 quiet and good sized bedrooms (even with exploding suitcases spilling onto the floor) and an excellent shower and hot water system. The lounge and dining rooms are flooded with light from the pretty French doors, and are tastefully furnished. The kitchen is tucked away in a small room, with charming blue and white tiles, and all the equipment and crockery you need. We didn't cook anything while we were there, although I'd planned to after watching 'Julie and Julia'! Instead we ate a big lunch or an early dinner at one of the nearby restaurants. The Ile st Louis, a 10 minute walk away across the Seine, has some very atmospheric restaurants down a cobbled lane way, which we kept returning to. Place de la Bastille is a 5min walk in the other direction, and there you can pick up great food at the Richard Lenoir market and hop on the metro to just about anywhere in Paris. St Paul and the Marais, with its meandering medieval streets and gorgeous little shops is a pleasant stroll away too. The boulangerie (bakery) just around the corner fulfilled all my dreams of the Paris life - popping down there in the morning to pick up some pain au chocolat and baguettes, to eat at the sun soaked dining table by the French doors, while gazing across the canal. It doesn't get much better than that!
The apartment was very clean, with fresh linen on the very comfortable beds, and lots of spare towels. Eugene was very helpful in organising the key handover and provided detailed instructions that ensured we got into the apartment without any hiccups. We connected to the WiFi without problems and it was fast enough to keep my techno geek husband happy. Overall, I would highly recommend this place, and wouldn't stay anywhere else if I'm ever lucky enough to return to Paris.

Spacious Comfortable Quiet Great Location in 4th

  • 5 of 5
If you want a spacious apartment to call home for your time in Paris, this is it. It is just as the owner, Gene, describes. Close to Bastille and Marche Aligre (a "must do" on Sunday morning for fresh produce). Living and dining rooms facing directly to the Arsenal Canal. Quiet bedrooms across the hall from the LR/DR allow for a peaceful sleep. Secure access. FREE internet AND long distance phone! Three minute walk to Metro. My wife and I were very pleased with everything about this apartment, especially the separate dining room which made mealtime quite enjoyable. Bookcase with lots of Paris info books in case you don't bring yours. Kitchen is small but very efficient and cooking was never a problem. We thoroughly enjoyed our Paris "home" and would definitely return. Gene is an easy owner to deal with, which is an added plus. Highly recommended.

Thanks!

  • 5 of 5
Gene: Just a short note to thank you once again for letting us use your apartment, for your detailed instructions on all aspects of life in the apartment and the neighborhood, and particularly for your willingness to be flexible about the timing. Our Parisian experience was much enhanced by having a place that felt like home and I suspect that it will not be a 23 year gap before my next visit to Paris. We had often talked about the idea of renting a place for a short term in a city that we wished to explore but this was our first real attempt to do so. It was successful beyond our expectations and now we have shared that with many of our friends. I hope that translates into more rentals (and revenue) for you. By the way, there are two bakeries on Isle St. Louis and the smaller one at the west end of the island has much the better croissants and baguettes although a much more limited selection of other pastries. Thanks, again. Gerry

We've just finished our third stay at this beautiful flat on Blvd Bourdon, and would love to keep it a secret. It's sparklingly clean and beautifully maintained. It's spacious with high ceilings and tall windows overlooking the canal. Lots of sunlight, quiet, wonderful kitchen, large bath with washer/dryer - really everything one would need. It's within walking distance of the Marais, the Bastille, Ile St. Louis, the Gare de Lyon, the metro, the bus, etc. The owner also has wonderful restaurant recommendations to make and is a delight to work with.
