My family and I had the great fortune to stay at Helene's fabulous apartment last month.
I agree with all of the positive, 5-star reviews that are on this listing, all of which were very helpful in making our decision to stay here. It was the perfect location for our family of 5 -- the apartment was very spacious and beautifully decorated, we had everything we needed (we felt like guests in a friend's home), and we loved looking out of the large windows to view the canal below (and watching all of the interesting people going about their day).
Helene was also extremely helpful to us before we rented, answering any question we had, and we were ESPECIALLY grateful for her help when one of the members of our family needed a doctor because of an allergic reaction to some food she ate - I called Helene in a bit of a panic looking for advice and she guided me to her resource book that she created for her guests (with all of the information you will need for help, medical assistance, travel tips, restaurants, etc.) and a doctor was able to come to the apartment within 45 minutes!
The area is part of an active community and, as has been written, there is some noise from the street, but I personally think that adds to the apartment's charm and personality - I loved that part! There are also many restaurants in the area, with very nice restaurant in our building that was a hangout and a personal favorite of ours. The Metro is a 5 minute walk away, which was also a huge plus for us.
Our trip to Paris will be a memory that our family will never forget, and being able to stay at Helene's beautiful apartment will always be a special part of that memory. We will definitely stay here again!
My Husband and I stayed on the Canal Saint Martin in Helen’s beautiful apartment for our honeymoon and were so pleased. We had been travelling and staying in hotels for the few weeks prior and found comfort in having a home away from home for the remainder of our trip. The location was fantastic and it was easy to get around. Helen was so gracious and accommodating it really made our trip. We fell in love with Paris and will definitely be renting this apartment again upon our return visit. I strongly recommend it!
We loved our stay in Helene's apartment. She was out of town while we were there, but her family was very helpful in setting us up; and Helene monitored from away and was courteous enough to contact us when a rail strike could have impeded our travel plans. The apartment was great for our family of four (two adults and two college kids). The neighborhood is great, the subway is close, there are many places to eat and drink nearby and the people were very helpful. It's a cool place; you'll like it.
This apartment is fantastic! Six of us stayed for five nights in May. There is plenty of space, and the large living room is especially nice for relaxing after walking around Paris all day. The location is ideal – close to the subway (the nearby stop République has 5 lines, making it easy to go anywhere in Paris), but the neighborhood itself doesn’t feel too touristy. There are many wonderful restaurants, cafes and bakeries within a short walk from the apartment. Hélène was very helpful and friendly, answering all of our questions quickly. I would absolutely stay here again, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
We loved our stay at your Paris apartment. It was very convenient to the subway and other attractions. It was very nicely decorated, with all amenities to make it feel like home. It had lots of living space for the 5 of us. Helene was a pleasure to work with, and answered all of our questions promptly. Also very close to some really good cafes and restaurants. Loved the available Dyson fans in each bedroom, and we had no problem with late night noise. Will definitely return to this apartment again on our next visit!
Our vacation brought together family and friends (total of 5) from California, Chicago and NY. Helene’s flat suited our needs perfectly! Architecturally, its well detailed and very spacious. Floor to ceiling glass makes it well lit all day. The kitchen is well outfitted for someone who is into cooking while in Paris (if that’s your thing). Furnishings throughout make you feel comfortable and very much at home. Helene’s description and photos are spot on.
The metro is just a few blocks away, so access to the City is simple. Its definitely a hip and trendy area. With that said, the weekends (Thursday-Saturday nights) provide a gathering place for some reasonable partying into the wee hours, so bring your earplugs if you are not used to that. But that goes with being right on the canal.
Helene was responsive throughout the entire process; very accessible by phone/text or email with good communication skills. We had a slight comfort issue come up and she responded very quickly to our complete satisfaction. Typically, I wouldn’t even mention it, but I understand things happen and the way owners’ deal with them is very important. Helene met all expectations.
