Feels Like Home in Montmartre
In April my husband and I traveled for the first time to Paris and rented Caulaincourt Classique for a week. I had researched renting a place in Paris for a few months visiting various websites and reading copious reviews as we were a little concerned about renting a place from someone we don’t know and sending a large amount of money in advance to hold the reservation. From the outset when we finally decided to rent from Feels Like Home In Paris it had more to do with the excellent reviews of Yetunde Oshodi
and her helpfulness than it did the apartment itself.
We could not have been happier with our entire experience in Paris. We do not speak any French and so the learning curve is quite steep when you arrive and haven’t the faintest idea how to do the things you take for granted at home. This is where to my mind renting from Feels Like Home In Paris stood head and shoulders above any rental companies we have ever used before. Upon arrival we were met by Yetunde and given a lovely basket of treats and a bottle of Champaign to celebrate our anniversary. Even more helpful was the on-line information we used every day to navigate, select restaurants and plan transportation. We were even given a number of useful guides and maps to help us along the way.
The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. The lovely French windows open onto a somewhat busy street during the day but we found that watching the daily activities was very enjoyable. In the evening and at night the street was really very quiet. We slept very soundly (it probably helped that we walked 8 to 10 miles a day) and never once heard the neighbors. The washer and dryer were efficient and the shower was fine. The toilet was quite tiny by our standards but we did not care. It was clean. The kitchen is modestly but fully equipped with good cooking tools. Le Creuset cookware, real wine glasses, some sharp knives and a good functional coffee maker – I was perfectly happy to prepare a few small meals that we enjoyed sitting at the table pulled up to the window to watch the French world go by.
One of the best things that we appreciated were the AMAZING wine and cheese tasting offered to guests of Feels Like Home in Paris. We enjoyed our evening so much and the most beneficial thing as a visitor beyond the actual tasting is the wealth of great information and tips provided by Yetunde, her chef husband Eric and the others who were helping that night.
