Guestbook comments from the owner
Bonjour Liam,

I will be leaving this most perfect apartment, tomorrow. It has been tremendous, living on the Ile.

I wanted to let you know that I could not get the tall white lamp to turn on, which was fine - plenty of light otherwise. It must have been something I had missed.

Merci beaucoup,

Kelly

Bonjour tout le monde (hello everybody),

Je m’appel (my name is) Liam (Guillaume en Francais) and I am the owner of this apartment we call LOUIS02. I am Irish and live with my family in Dublin, but my work takes us regularly to Paris and I love to immerse myself in the city’s daily life.

Staying in a traditional apartment as opposed to a hotel, even for a short stay, has always enabled us to get the most from our visits to Paris. This encouraged us to buy several studios on the wonderful Ile St Louis.

In my Blog for which i can send you a link, I share my own and my family's time and experiences in Paris to provide useful news and information for business and leisure travellers to the City of Lights.

You can also consult Feedback provided by previous guests and, when you have stayed in one of our apartments, provide your own feedback either directly to the Blog or by contacting me.

I look forward to doing my best to answer any of your questions about Paris and our apartments.

A bientot (see you soon),

Liam

Orla Lenehan purchased this apartment in 2005

2-person studio with timber beams, south facing French windows, minimalist decoration and furnishings and a smart kitchen corner. Great location, great price.

Wake up to the sound of the early morning church bells, stand at the French window looking across at the clock tower and realise you are on a little island in the Seine in the heart of Paris, then pop downstairs to Madame Martins' boulangerie for a baguette or croissant to have with your cafe ....

A WONDERFUL 10 DAY STAY ON ILE SAINT LOUIS

  • 5 of 5
Dear Liam We just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay in your Louis02 Isle St. Louis studio. The location was perfect and we can't imagine staying in any other area when we have the chance to return. We were central to everything yet the street is charming and quiet at night. Rue St Louis had wonderful restaurants, boulangeries, wine shops, ice cream shops, wine shops, and boutiques. The apartment was spacious enough for two and the bed was very comfortable, as well as the large pillows provided. We really appreciated the fan, as we hit a heat wave while we there. We really had most of what we needed for our stay. The only thing we could suggest is to equip the kitchen with wine glasses and to provide a blanket to take out for a picnic. The river is so close and our favorite thing at night was to take a bottle of wine out to the river and watch the boats go by. Many thanks to Liam and his staff for being so professional, helpful and responsive. Looking forward to our return! Warm regards,

WE LOVED STAYING IN AN APARTMENT ON ILE SAINT LOUIS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in your apartment Louis02 recently. We really enjoyed our visit to Paris which was helped by the fact that we loved staying in an Apartment on Ile Saint Louis. Staying in Ile Saint-Louis you experience traditional Parisian Life which is very much removed from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of a capital city. Most of the Buildings seem to be occupied by Residents……even the local Primary School is just down the Street! Although the Apartment is located in a Period Building the Apartment itself is very modern, spacious and comfortable. We definitely hope to stay there again.

GREAT PLACE BUT DON'T EXPECT ASSISTANCE

Great Place But Don't Expect Assistance
  • 2 of 5
I'm happy to echo what others have said about this charming little apartment. It is in a perfect location. The fold-out bed has a super comfortable thick foam mattress and is plenty long for tall guys. The kitchen is nicely equipped and the bathroom is modern and includes a washer-dryer combination (be sure to get good instructions). As described, it requires climbing 3 flights of stairs, but they are not steep and have 6 landings for a quick rest...not really too bad unless you have extra heavy baggage. All in all, we had 3 fine nights there. Only problem is that we paid for 4 and ended up locked out and having to go to a nearby hotel for our last night after being ignored by Paris Apartment By Numbers for nearly 5 hours and having them hang up on us! The owner finally managed to get them to respond, but by then (after 5 p.m.), we had given up and taken a hotel room. As we are traveling without a cell phone, we are still e-mailing about my request for a refund for the lost night (and lost day of precious time in Paris). You might ask him to explain how this came out. Lessons learned: 1) don't let jet lag confuse you about dates so you end up locked out a day early (our bad) and 2) don't count on help from this agency to get back in (or report a problem), even during their posted 9:30 to 5:00 business hours. Always carry not only the agency number, but also the owner's number with you when you go out, just in case and if you aren't traveling with a cell phone, locate the nearest pay phone early in your stay.

Owner's Response: I am the owner and I just wanted to reassure future renters about the excellent managers I have looking after my property in Paris, checking-in our guests/customers and handling any issues that arise during their stay.

You can see from the review above that our guest, Wendy, really enjoyed the apartment but had a problem when she locked herself out.

Firstly all my guests have my email address and mobile/cell number which they can reach me or my wife on 24/7 if they cannot het a hold of the managers. In this case, as soon as I was made aware of Wendy's problem by email from her, as she says in her review, I had our manager deliver an extra key within 20 minutes to the shopowner who we know below the apartment. This was done by 4.30pm in the afternoon but Wendy had, I feel prematurely, already left and checked into a hotel.

Prior to that, as Wendy did not have a cell phone, she borrowed a phone and called her check-in person and he immediately called our manager's office to ask them to call her on that number to arrange to deliver a spare key. Unfortunately our manager tried many times to get back to her on this number but failed.

Unfortunately she was not able to communicate to the check-in person which apartment she was staying in so our manager had no idea which key was needed.

Our manager's emergency/support services number is full staffed every day but Wendy never left a message when she called the number. They did not hang up on her because they never spoke to her. It would seem that when she called the line was busy and she was diverted to an answering message in French and wrongly assumed when the message was completed that the person was hanging up on her.

This was an unfortunate incident for our guest but I am 100% happy with our managers and my own handling of it. Wendy is absolutely spot on with her advice to always have the managers and the owners numbers and email addresses to hand and a means of communication.

Also be aware of the name/reference of the apartment and it's exact street address and floor, as our managers manage over 300 apartments across the city and over 30 on Ile saint Louis, each one in a different building.

If you are a potential renter of our property, please don't hesitate to ask me with any questions or concerns about your stay.

Liam

Ile St Louis is one of the most enchanting places to stay in Paris and Paris by numbers can tell you now that as soon as you arrive you will find it hard to resist staying local for the duration of your visit and living side by side with the 3,000 or so inhabitants of this unique island on the Seine. The island has a village feel about it and is delightfully unspoilt with it’s mixture of handsome 17th century architecture, narrow streets and magnificent views from its tree-lined quays and berges (banks) where you can picnic and watch the boats go by.

Running lengthwise along the island is it’s main street, rue Saint Louis en l’Ile. It boasts a baroque church, refined boutiques and gift shops, old-fashioned bistros and brasseries, chocolate, ice cream, gourmet food and wine shops, a florist, bakeries, two amazing cheese shops and many little “salons de thés”. But of course here you are also at the geographical centre of Paris and from the island can walk, cycle the Velib, ride the Metro or hop on and off the Batobus on the Seine to reach all the city's landmarks.

Begin your sightseeing with Notre Dame (Ile de la Cité is linked to Ile St Louis by pedestrian bridge) and your shopping with rue de Rivoli, both of which are just a 10 minute walk away. Walk for a little longer and you will reach Saint Chapelle, Bastille, the Pompidou Centre , the Louvre and the Tuileries Gardens. For night life just pop across the bridges from the island to the the Latin Quarter (south) and the Marais (north).

RER B will take you direct from CDG and Orly airports to Notre Dame-Saint Michel and the island is serviced by three Metro stations: Pont Marie (line 7), St Paul (line 1) and Cité (line 4)
