I'm Parisian working in the finance industry and have being living in this city for about 20 years.

I've spent the other part of my life living abroad, travelling worldwide for business or entertainment. Throughout my extensive traveller experience on all the continents, I had the opportunity to stay in some of the most renowned and exclusive hotels and places in the world, from the unique Atacama Desert resort in Chile, to fashionable and privileged Mayfair addresses or opulent maharadja castle in Radjastan.

When refurbishing this recently acquired apartment our goal was to make this place which benefited from a first class location on the Ile Saint Louis, a 5-star-hotel-suite like flat.

Decorated and furnished with personal items, mixing French antic with souvenir de voyages you will find here cosiness of a flat and functionality of a hotel suite.

Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

I've been living in Paris for some 20 years and Ile Saint Louis is really the essence of Paris to me.

I've been looking for years for an exclusive property in the centre of Paris without suffering from the trouble of a megapolis. I found it...

The isle is a retreat from the stress and motion of the city. In addition to its exclusive setting in Paris the Ile Saint Louis offers peaceful and romantic tree-shaded quays accessed by stairway and, of course, the views on the city. This attests to the fact that, despite its development, the island has not lost its original function as a place for people to gather and relax in company with the Seine.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful apartment. Everything about our visit was perfect, but above all your apartment was exceptional. It is a perfect location, with an absolute gorgeous view and magnificently appointed. We typically do not stay at the same place twice because we like new experiences, but when we stay in Paris we will always stay there...it was that great. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you. Chan was outstanding in arranging our travel accommodations. Merci beaucoup.

LOVELY APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
Overall, we liked out stay at this apartment. The views of the Seine are sensational and the apartment is exactly as described. Brilliant and convenient location. Whilst it's smaller than others we've stayed in there are lots of well thought out spaces to put things, and it's well equipped.
The ony real negative is that we both thought the toilet was far too narrow and small, as a room - literally smaller than many aircraft bathrooms. We also encountered some noise from neighbours, but that happens in many apartments.

Owner's Response: Rental properties are all different one from the others, from very large to tiny, boasting a wide range of facilities and offering diverse locations. The choice is yours depending on your wishes and budget. Only similar products i.e. location, size, facilities, service and price can be compared. This apartment is as described i.e. 45sqm prime location facing the Seine river with one living area incl open kitchen, one bedroom plus en-suite bathroom and toilets. When refurbished the place, the architect’s choice was to maximize living areas and to offer state-of-the-art facilities in a pre-defined 17th century space. This ended with a modern apartment featuring high-end decoration and top-quality equipment: built-in bean-to-the-cup espresso coffee machine, dish-washer, washing-drying machine, electric blinds, grill-microwave oven, large walk-in shower and plenty of storage to name but a few. Toilets’ size fits the size of the apartment and if not huge, generally speaking guests seemed quite happy with them… if we can say so.
Regarding noise from neighbors, this might happen in modern cities since you’re not alone by definition.
All in all we do our best to provide first class service to our guests in spot less and permanently cared property. This also include decoration and furniture which have been carefully selected. We pay special attention to maintain this place to the highest standard and condition since we expect our guest to be 100% satisfied. Guests’ reviews over the last 3 years rating the place and service provided "5 starts" speak by themselves.

A COZY CORNER IN PARIS

  • 5 of 5
If location is the key to a successful vacation spot this unit is the one. terrific location with easy access to the metro at Pont Marie or St. Paul's or Ile Cite. Friendly shopkeepers and terrific restaurants at your doorstep. wonderful views looking north to the Pompidou, the Bastille and Sacre Coeur. Well laid out space and certainly adequate for two adults. Space is used effectively but one might consider it small by American standards. Everything worked out beautifully and we could not have asked fora better location for our nearly month in Paris.

DREAMY PARIS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I decided to go to Paris for our 20th wedding anniversary and were lucky enough to choose this fabulous apartment. It was exactly how is looks on the VRBO sight and perfectly described.
We fell in love with Paris, the apartment as well as Ile St. Louis. The island and the apartment are the perfect location to stay as they are central in Paris. We could easily walk to so many places on our to do list. Also it was so beautiful to come back at the end of each day and walk over a bridge on the Seine. I really loved having the boats go by at night and light up the ceiling. Just incredible! We had the windows open all the time and loved it!

We enjoyed the Berthillion ice cream on many nights sitting on a bridge listening to live music..... just so incredible. The people on Ile St. Louis were warm, gracious and very helpful when you needed anything. We had wonderful wine, restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. I loved being able to pop out our door and get just about anything we needed and have those amazing views when doing it.

We chose to use the recommended car service and were so happy we did. Chan was waiting at the airport to help us with our bags, delivered us to the apartment and started our vacation telling us about Paris on the way. Excellent service! He also returned us to the airport on our last day and we discussed our return trip with him!! We will absolutely go back to Paris, stay in the apartment and have Chan drive us out to Versaille!!!
We were met on our first day at the apartment by Guillaume who was so nice and made sure we had everything we needed and was available for anything by phone or email. He promptly returned my emails and was very helpful! We also chatted on our last day and expressed how much we loved the city and hoped to see him again. Everyone affiliated with the apartment was courteous, helpful and professional.

If you are looking for a perfect Paris vacation I would absolutely recommend staying here!!
As stated in the other review the shower was open and the floor gets a little wet. Not a really big deal. The tv is only in the bedroom, but really who wants to watch when you are in Paris with the amazing. apartment views! The bed is firm, but that worked well for me and the blackout blinds helped with a nice night's sleep. I found the apartment to have everything we needed and very little I would change.

At least one night just stay in with some wine and cheese...enjoy the views!

HONEST OWNER WITH A VERY NICE PROPERTY. I RECOMMEND IT, AND HIM.

  • 4 of 5
This is an excellent very small apartment, with some useful amenities. It has a microwave, dishwasher, cooktop, washer/dryer, and refrigerator. The lighting is beautifully done. There is a tiny, but very useful elevator. The location is top notch. Close to the Louvre, Notre Dame. You can walk to both. You can also rent bikes from a kiosk nearby, and ride all over the city. We rode to the Eiffel Tower, and many other places. If you're using an American credit card, You must rent using your credit card via the Internet, and then use the code number they give you to get your bike. The subway is very close as well, but confusing to me (and I rode subways all over). The apartment is clean, well appointed, well stocked with dishes, and general supplies. A grocery store is within walking distance. The location is just top flight. My suggestions and criticisms are:


The bed is hard. It needs a pillow top that can be purchased on eBay for about $100. I bought a few for my beds, and they turn a hard bed into luxury. This place needs and deserves it.
There is no TV in the main living area. It needs one. The TV in the bedroom is tiny. It should be larger. These are my opinions.
There's no shower curtain or glass door. It's hard to keep the entire bathroom from getting wet. It needs a nice glass door.
There are sparse electrical electrical outlets in the bedroom.
There is no a/c. You must sleep with the windows open in the front and back for cross breeze. Those windows need some way to keep them open so the breeze does not flap them around at night.
A ceiling fan in the bedroom would be very helpful for cooling.

The owner was helpful is setting us up with a private driver and tour guide who was very helpful and made for a special trip. I recommend doing this as well.

Owner's Response: Home decor ought to be a reflection of the owner’s personal tastes. Our property was to be a comfy place both for the body and eyes. But all this really comes down to the individual.

Though some consider the television may add to the décor, as per vrbo’s description you will find TV set in the bedroom only. We did not even consider a flat screen in the leaving area as this would mar the overall look of the property
Design trends show that people have recently been moving towards the modern walk in shower creating a seamless open floor space in the bathroom. You can simply walk right into your shower without having to worry about anything. It is the perfect solution for en-suite bathroom in small apartment as it takes up less space in a bathroom (since there are no door swings or frame to account for). Adding doors or curtains will by definition ruin everything. Although we consider it is an attractive style of design, it necessarily may not be suitable for every single person due to its distinct features. Again it depends on your lifestyle and the look you want for your place.
The choice between a soft mattress and a firm one is a matter of personal preference. Plush mattresses are cushy and soft, but they aren't the best for everyone. So far, no one has ever complained about the beddings over the last 3 years.

We will not comment in details on the number of electrical outlets, the fact that there is no A/C or ceiling fan since none of these features are mentioned in the apartment description.

Our description of the apartment and the additional pictures we send together with any quotation offer any potential guest a detailed overview of the property, its layout and full facilities offered.

PERFECTION !!

  • 5 of 5
I recently spent a month in this wonderful Paris apartment on Ile St Louis. On arrival, I was met at the airport by Pierre's driver and taken directly to 'my' apartment. I was thrilled walking in to this lovely place. The description and details in the VRBO listing are completely accurate. The furninshings, comfortable bed, beautiful linens, cleanliness and attention to detail have been describe in previous reviews and I echo each of those comments but until you feel the warmth, charm and comfort of the place you will be missing the best part. The modern and tasteful decor combined with the history of the place (ceiling beams, floors etc), make this apartment an utter gem. Open 2 sets of large double windows and there is Paris... the river directly below, trees swaying in the breeze, the stunning views in both directions - morning and night... the IDEAL location to everything and everywhere you could possibly want to go. When I think back to my time in Paris, this apartment is one of the things that I truly miss.

Adding to my wonderful experience was Pierre's real committment to ensure that my time spent in Paris was every bit as perfect as his apartment. Any questions I had or requests I made were answered immediatley. Pierre even went out of his way to recommend and personally call a hotel to secure a reservation for my visiting friend, when no reservations seemed to be had.

I would highly recommend this apartment. For me, it was a big part of my incredible month in Paris.

Thank you Pierre.

The Île Saint-Louis is one of two natural islands in the Seine river (the other natural island is Île de la Cité). The island is connected to the rest of Paris by bridges to both banks of the river and by the Pont Saint Louis to the Île de la Cité.

The Ile Saint Louis has become a highly residential area and a privileged destination and those looking for a romantic visit or who are impassioned about history looking for a Paris that is both elegant and authentic.

Ile Saint Louis will appeal to those who like more of a small-town feel, who appreciate historic neighborhoods and old towns, fine meals at a sidewalk café and guests tourists who prefer to live like locals, Often considered the most romantic part of Paris, the peaceful Ile St-Louis is prime strolling territory.

The flat is a three minute walk from Notre-Dame, a five minute walk from the famous Marais area and ten minute walk from Place des Vosges. Saint Germain, its art galeries and fashion shop are only 15 min walk
