Big space in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults w/ 5 kids and stayed here very comfortably. The apart is very spacious w/ a big living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom. The rest of the bedrooms are mostly geared towards children but some of the bunk beds are large enough to sleep two adults comfortably. Kitchen was very modern w/ everything you would ever need there. You can't beat the location. In a quiet neighborhood (not a lot of noise from either foot or car traffic) but very close to plenty of action, including great bars, and restaurants off of Ternes and Poncelet (outdoor market and plenty of shops/bars/restaurants). You are also four blocks from the Arc de Triomphe. The only minor challenge we had was with only having one shower (there is also a large tub but it's meant for soaking/relaxing more than washing). John was always very quick to answer any questions and very helpful. Next time we are in Paris w/ a large group, this will be the place we check for availability. Thanks for a great stay.

Paris July 10 -July 13

  • 4 of 5

The listing was accurate. The apartment provided everything we needed for our stay in Paris including tour books. It was comfortable, clean, and secure. We had 8 adults and 4 children which stretched the limits of sleeping space just a little. The location was perfect as we could walk to so many of the sights including the river where we had passes on the boats and were able to easily extend our sightseeing. Restaurants and markets were plentiful and close by.

The owner was very helpful, always answering my emails promptly and answering my numerous questions. I would definitely recommend this property to friends. Renting this apartment made our stay as a family a much richer experience.

An OASIS after a long day in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT stay at this home! Two families (total of 12) fit comfortably in this beautiful home. The place was elegant yet homey and comfortable. The bathrooms are very nice and updated, the kitchen is huge (by European standards) and updated which was great, and the beds were comfortable. Great family-style home!

Parking was a bit of a challenge, but we found a parking garage a few blocks away, €20/day (very reasonable). It was great not having to drive the crazy city round-abouts once we got there.

Only a fifteen minute walk to the Arc de Triomphe, Metro was pretty easy to figure out for the sites just out of walking distance.

After a sixteen-hour day on the streets of Paris, this home was like a much needed oasis for our families.

Owner and caretakers were very nice and easy to work with. We HIGHLY recommend this place. We wish we could have stayed longer to actually enjoy the house more (but of course we were there to see Paris). This place worked GREAT for our families, hope it works just as well for yours!

Great place for Family or large groups

  • 5 of 5

John and his wife have a wonderful home. Our friends wanted to see Paris with their 3 kids and us with our 4kids. John was so wonderful to work with in securing his home. It was a great location and huge (by Paris standards)apartment that meet all our needs. Everyone had a room to sleep in and privacy. We loved going to the markets every morning and buy fresh food our breakfasts and dinners. We loved walking to the Charles De Gaulle metro looking at Arc de Triumphe every day and coming home seeing it all lite up. Street parking we had to watch for openings but there was underground parking a few blocks away. Their neighbors were a blessing from heaven, we knew no French but they seem to understand our situations and helped us out asap. For example, street parking they helped us by telling us that a we needed a special parking card for the parking meter our credit card or bank cards would not work.They pointed us in the direction of the store and we bought the parking card like a resident which was very affordable. John gave us great directions to the home and other places in Paris and Versailles. We felt like we were living in Paris which made our time there even more special. Merci !

We had a great time

  • 4 of 5

Four friends and I spent a week in Paris at this apartment and we had a wonderful time. The apartment was big enough for all of us to have our own privacy and at the same time, having a kitchen and living room to eat and to relax in was great.

The location is superb -- close enough to the main attractions and yet not touristy at all. In fact, we saw no other tourists in the neighborhood. But 20 min on a bus -- stops 2 blocks away -- brought us to the Seine, the Louvre the Musee d'Orsay and so on.

In addition, the fact that the rue Poncelet market is 2 blocks away meant that we could have fresh baguettes, pain au chocolat, and the freshest fruit and vegetables any time. Usually the first one up bought breakfast and the food was incomparable.

The main problem with the apartment is that we had to leave it.

Wow! We stayed here with...

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We stayed here with 6 kids and 3 adults and

were very comfortable. It is a treat to come back to

this lovely apartment after a full day of sightseeing.

The Metro stop is nearby and so is a cute little park.

The location is perfect and the apartment is

delightful. We will definitely plan on staying at this

beautiful home on our next trip to Paris. It truly

was our home away from home. Thank you to the

Halls!
