Our incredibly charming duplex loft is ideally located in the best part of the trendy Marais district in Paris, just steps away from the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum (reopening Summer 2013), galleries, restaurants and shops. This newly renovated house has a bedroom with office space upstairs, a bathroom with a large shower, an open kitchen, a dining area and a living space with a convertible sofa that has a very comfortable mattress. It sits tucked away in the quiet second courtyard behind a 17th century hôtel particulier and has its own garden space with outdoor furniture. You’ll love the light streaming in through the glass roof and the huge sliding glass doors that look out onto your private cobblestone outdoor space.
You enter the apartment by going through the large cobblestone courtyard of the landmark Hôtel de Cornuel, through the building into the calm second courtyard and then through a hallway that leads to the ground floor duplex loft.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, multi-function oven, induction cooktop, refrigerator with freezer and all of the cooking equipment you’ll need. There’s also an all in one washer/dryer.
The living room has a comfortable convertible sofa with a real thick mattress for two that you’ll definitely get your sleep on if there are four of you. There’s a flat screen TV and of course free WiFi and telephone. Feel free to browse the books in the huge bookcase next to the stairs. The furniture has been carefully chosen and boasts some design classics such as the colorful Eames chairs in the dining area or the Noguchi prism table next to the sofa.
The all white bathroom has a 90cmx90cm shower, a washbasin, a toilet and plenty of storage.
The bedroom is upstairs and has a Queen size bed (160cm x 200cm), a desk and storage for your clothes and luggage. There’s also a plush, leather Eames lounge chair with foot rest to ease your tired feet from all of the walking. A curtain can be pulled to close off the sleeping area if you need to sleep in the dark. You can also watch TV on a flat screen at the foot of the bed.
The lushly planted outdoor space is the icing on the cake. It’s private and makes for a lovely view. It’s equipped with a table and chairs as well as lighting that makes outdoor dining a pleasure.
Clean sheets and towels are provided.
The weekly cleaning fee is 70 Euros. Extra cleaning services are available.
A baby bed is available upon request.

We really enjoyed the loft apartment - it was perfect for two of us for 4 days. Tucked away in a second courtyard, it was quiet and quaint. Property was clean, everything was functional, so there were no issues of that sort. Jessica was very easy to work with and responsive.
Location is great - convenient to a number of metro stops, also in the thick of the Marais so you can easily get to good restaurants, shopping, etc. We loved Breizh Cafe down the street!
Definitely would recommend - and if we were returning to Paris anytime soon, I would book again. I thought it was good value for the price, especially compared to Paris hotels.
A few things for renters to note (just as FYI):
Definitely enough space for two people, but I'm not sure I'd try for any more than that. I'm not sure where you'd put everything for up to 4 people, and you really only have the sofa and the chairs from the kitchen table for seating on the main floor.
The sleeping area in the loft is a bit tight. It's a Queen-sized bed, but know you need to duck to get in/out and then the inside sleeper (if you have two) has to climb over the other person to get out.
The steps are a bit awkward - as the pictures show it's one step per foot - so navigating can be tricky (especially going down to the bathroom at night and/or if you've had something to drink).
The ceiling is all glass as is the wall... which makes it feel open and airy (the wall opens up too), but not necessarily private (not that I think anyone could really see in, but there are other buildings around with windows).
The bath is a bit tight (from an American perspective), but certainly more than adequate.
The outdoor space is a great bonus (though we had rainy weather and were unable to use it to its full potential).
We had a great stay in the apartment. Both Jessica and Philip were great hosts and the apartment was just as shown in the photos. We visit Paris every year and will definitely consider staying here again next year. We always walk and use the Metro while in Paris so the Marais is an excellent location to do both. I only gave 4 stars because I can't imagine what it aces to reach 5 stars.
A very well appointed and quite appartment in a good location in the fashionable Marrais. Very confortable for two. Plenty of nice places to eat nearby. About 10 minutes to nearest Metro.
This apartment was perfectly located. It was in a quite location close to the hustle and bustle. Restaurants and grocery stores were close by, three metro stops were within an 8 minute walk, and bus stops even closer.
Jessica was a wonderful host and very helpful. The apartment was clean and well appointed. You could cook a full meal in the kitchen, the refrigerator was large and there was a dishwasher and washer/dryer combination. The bathroom was on the smallish side, but perfectly functional.
The patio area was perfect, especially at night with the lights on. It was bigger than the pictures indicated. What I liked most about the apartment was the modern design and all of the natural light. It was almost like you were outdoors all the time.
I would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay here. Jessica responded to our requests quickly before our stay and was very reliable with timing when we arrived. The apartment is very unique with the glass roof right under a beautiful tree. It's very well located and very peaceful. The bed is incredibly comfortable. We were able to walk to some lovely cafés for breakfast in the morning as well.
We stayed for a week. The only downside we would share is that after a week, the small bathroom can start to become more challenging and also the size of the kitchen. The apartment also had a leak when it rained. Other than this, it is excellent.
This property is amazing! The neighborhood is completely charming with plenty of interesting and friendly people, boutiques, bars, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. The apartment is extremely clean, bright and cheery, beautifully designed, and provides everything that one would need to feel at home. The operating manuals were very helpful for using the appliances. The owner, Jessica, was also super helpful and sent detailed directions, recommendations for the area...where to shop, eat, and how to get around. The sleeping loft is perfect with the glass ceiling and the view of the beautiful trees above. The bathroom is an excellent size, with plenty of hot water in the spacious shower. We used the kitchen for 90% of our meals and lacked nothing to prepare gourmet food.
We completely enjoyed the sweet, plant-filled outside patio and spent lots of time there at night enjoying wine from the local stores and the small twinkling lights. I traveled with my sister to visit my niece and her boyfriend who live in Paris. He actually proposed marriage to her on the patio and we planned the entire Parisian wedding during our stay.
When traveling, i tend to avoid touristy places, however, I highly recommend the truffle-stuffed pasta at Angelina. The best pasta dish of my life!
A great ride to/from the airport was provided by Blacklane Limousines. I booked them as well for my niece's wedding. If you plan on getting married in Paris, I would also highly recommend David Bacher as your photographer.
My stay was actually for a week in March 2013, and I am just getting around to writing the review. If you are traveling to Paris, you would feel at home in this perfect little slice of heaven. Thank you Jessica and Phillipe for creating a great place for four adults to enjoy a week of family time.
Our incredibly charming duplex loft is ideally located in the best part of the trendy Marais district in Paris, just steps away from the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum (reopening Summer 2013), galleries, restaurants and shops. You can walk to the river Seine and the Place des Vosges. We're also in the heart of the Paris fashion week area where several times a year the art galleries are transformed into fashion showrooms. The nearest metro stations at about equal distance are St Sébastien Froissart (line 8) and Rambuteau (line 11). It's a 10 minute walk to République (lines 3, 5, 8, 9 and 11) and to Hôtel de Ville (lines 1 and 11). The 29 bus is a block away and the 96 (that takes you directly to the Luxemburg garden and to Odéon is a 7 minute walk away.
