About The Owner

I was born in Chicago but grew up in a small resort town on Lake Michigan and my wife Barbara is from Ohio. We love world class cities and reside in San Francisco where Barbara owns a greeting card store, Avant Card. I'm a general dentist in downtown SF.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2002

Why The Owner chose 2nd Arrondissement Bourse

Because I support the concept of intelligent urban design, I decided to add my money where my mouth is. So I bought an apartment in what I and thousands of French people feel is the quarter in Paris that best exemplifies the future of all world class cities. Less and less cars and a return to the streets for the people.

What makes this apartment unique

Relaxation! Everything you could desire is within a 6 block radius. 80+ restaurants and cafes, outdoor food market every day, great night life including some all night clubs and a Metro stop only 2 blocks away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The visit, R&R and general reawakening of our "European Spirit" has been wonderful. The apartment is superb and will provide a needed respite for future visitors.

We stayed in the apartment in March of 2006. The apartment was great, very, very clean, in the old historic building (wonderful wooden beams cross the ceiling). The location couldn't be better - about a minute walk from Etienne Marcel metro station, about 5 minute walk from Rue Montorgueil where you can buy some of the most delicious things you'll ever taste in your life. Louvre is 10 minutes by walk; Ile de la Cite is just as close. The apartment is perfect for a couple; additional people will have to sleep on the pull-out sofa (which was OK with us, but some people may find it uncomfortable). If we go to Paris again, this appt. will be the first on our list of possible accomodations.

Our family in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young girls) stayed here for one week over Spring Break and we were so happy in the apartment! The area of town is so central, you can walk anywhere! We ate in the restaurants close by or just went to the market and picked up what we needed for dinner. It was fun to 'live like a Parisian' just off Rue Montorgueil. Thanks so much, Bruce for working with us on our flexible dates of travel - it really made our vacation!!!!

My husband and I stayed here on May 2008. We both loved the flat. It is centrally located to the metro, restaurants, bakeries, gelato shops, markets, cheese shops, and the butcher shops. These shops are all on Montorgueil. Bruce and his staff were very quick, friendly, and accommodating. We would stay here again.

I stayed at the apartment for 17 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The apartment is modest, but nice and has a comfortable feel. The area it is located in is very convenient with all kinds of stores, bakeries, shops, and is close to major sites.

The Parisian contact I worked with (Helene) was consistently friendly and helpful.

This is located in the physical center of Paris next to the Les Halles park. The Quarter Montorgueil is actually a village within the center of Paris. It's a pedestrian only area with a daily open air market street. It has over 50 cafes and restaurants with outdoor seating so it is superb for people watching. Museums, shopping, entertainment and just strolling in Les Halles Park or the Tuileries are all within walking distance. The Blue Marble bicycle rental place is 1/2 block away from the apartment at 11 rue Tiquetonne.

Other Activities: Every morning we jog through the Tuilieres to the Place de la Concorde and back, 4 miles. Lots of people watching on the way. Picking up the Herald Tribune and breakfast rolls happens. Walk to the Louvre or the Pompidou Museum. Drink coffee, watch people, shop the many boutiques, sit in the sun and have a beer and watch more people. Take long nap before going out at night for dinner. Go late, very late, to really see Paris at night. Have dinner after 10 p.m. Across the street from the apartment, Babylon Bis opens from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. and it's not a night club. Just another restaurant. Ask for my 'Welcome attachment' for more places to go.
