In my life, I have been very lucky to have been born in France, raised on the East coast of the US, being a certified teacher in New York for a few years and having spent the major part of my teaching career in a U.S. private school in France which offering an American education.

After my retirement, wanting to continue to have a small professional activity which would allow me to meet people, I decided to purchase renovate and rent the studio to visitors to Paris.

I chose this particular studio in this particular location because it is still very Parisien away from the bustle of the tourist trade and yet close enough to the heart of Paris to allow a visitor to Paris to discover the city on foot.

I spent one week (October 27-November 3) in Michael's wonderful apartment. It was very clean, nicely set up, comfortable, and very quiet. The wi-fi and all the appliances worked great.

The location was wonderful. It was very close to the Republic Metro. The neighborhood had a lot of nice restaurants, markets, and had a very nice feel to it. It was great to be living in an area of Paris with no tourists, but it was easy to get to all areas of Paris from this location.

Michael answered all my emails promptly. He met me at the apartment to show me around and was readily available if I had any problems. There were no problems whatsoever. He was very accommodating and professional.

I would highly recommend this apartment. It is an excellent value for Paris in a wonderful location.

My husband and I just returned from a great one week stay in Michael's apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated--as others have said, the kitchen is very well equipped with a proper oven and cooktop. The bathroom was spacious and the shower (there's a tub too, for those who want it) had great water pressure and no shortage of hot water.

There's a laptop computer but the wifi was so good that we just used our ipad the entire time.

The Lidl grocery is just downstairs but there also seem to be Franprix, Monoprix, Carre etc. (not to mention street markets) almost everywhere you go in Paris so getting groceries was no trouble at all.

Michael made the entire experience very easy--he answered emails promptly and met us at the apartment (literally within seconds of our arrival). We were able to pay the damage deposit in our own currency and he returned the cheque on departure.

The apartment building seemed very secure and the lobby and elevators were nicely maintained. The apartment faces the courtyard so it was very quiet--no street noise and a typical Parisian view of rooftops.

We found the neighbourhood very convenient--the Republique metro was easy to use and had good connections everywhere we went. It's a very easy walk to the Marais neighbourhood and we also walked back from the Champs one day. We didn't have as much time as we would have liked to explore the canal but we walked up a ways on sunday and it was very vibrant--lots of hip shops and cafes and plenty of locals out enjoying their day off.

I also found that late November was a great time to visit--there were lots of Christmas lights, the window displays at Printemps and Galeries Lafayette were fantastic and the crowds were light compared to the warmer months. And we were lucky and didn't have a drop of rain the entire time.

Michael and his wife have put a lot of thought into making this apartment comfortable and welcoming--it's a very good value for Paris and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Absolutely loved this studio - loved the induction hob and still miss it! And there is a Lidl's is just next door - cheap food and I cooked the food I bought there regularly and even went there twice within an hour - loved having a proper oven not just a microwave. Beautifully quiet - loved it there.
Hope to stay there again ASAP! convenient and so comfortable and a great mattress on the sofabed - I found it better than my own bed1

We stayed in Michael's apt for 4 nights/5days. The studio has everything you can possibly think of requiring during your vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped and we prepared great breakfast during our stay. The most handy thing is that laptop with internet access really helps with planning the trip. There are also guides and maps of paris in the apt to help you during your stay.

Michael has a red book that can answer any possible question you may have about the apartment, how things operate, good restaurants. He is absolutely thorough and professional.

Must try is the No. 9 bakery (turn left from the apt and then first left, the bakery is next to the butcher shop). Amazing deserts, breads and take away sandwiches. Michael can give you more info on that..There are many grocery stores around the apt.

The closest metro station is "republique"...very convenient to get almost anywhere. The apt is easy to get to from CDU (RER B to "Gare to Nord" and metro to republique) and also easy to get to Orly from the apt (Metro to "Gare to Nord", RER to "Antony" and orly internal train)..Very easy.

100% recommend the apt!

After many years of architectural renovation, Place de la République and the area near the Canal Saint Martin have once again found the charm they possessed in the 19th century. The area, because of its typical Parisian atmosphere, the bucolic surroundings of the Canal Saint Martin and the pleasant night life of the neighborhood, is one of the most popular areas of Parisians among all age groups. On Sundays, the streets along the open portion of the canal are closed to vehicular traffic allowing the streets to be used for strolling, bicycle riding or skating. Since the renovation of the Canal a few years ago, a multitude of shops, cafés and small restaurants have opened. In close proximity (300 yards), is the Place de la République, the second largest square in Paris. Due to its size and geographic disposition, Place de la République, which is being turned into a pedestrian zone, is served by five metro lines and a large number of public transportation buses going in all directions of Paris. The Marais, an old historical area of Paris is on the south and East side of Place de la République. To the west of the square is the area called 'Grands Boulevards'. The area around the studio is rather busy at all times, well lighted at night and safe. Numerous stores, shops and restaurants are close by for all your daily shopping needs. For those who enjoy open air markets, within walking distance, are two large markets on Boulevard Jules Ferry (Popopincourt and Bastille)

Other Activities: Boat excursions on the Canal Saint Martin and the Seine.
