Guestbook comments from the owner

An ideal apartment close to Bastille and the Marais

This is an ideal apartment at a walking distance from Bastille and the Marais.

The flat is very well equipped and conveniently laid out. The kitchen allows

daily cooking; market on Bd Richard-Lenoir on Thursdays and Sundays; a delicious

boulangerie across Bd Beaumarchais; there are two bathrooms and two toilets,

which was very convenient as we staid as a family of four in the flat. Nice

terrace with an incredible view on Paris and the Eiffel Tower.

Finally, a very nice and helpful landlady.

Highly recommended,

Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to spend a month at Rachel’s apartment in Paris.

Sometimes it is difficult to separate the host from the home one is renting. That applies to the apartment we rented from Rachel.

Rachel was waiting for us when we arrived (late) by car. She showed us around the private parking area, the layout of the building and the apartment.

When we arrived at the apartment (which by Parisian standards is huge) we were treated to a bottle of wine, candies and cheeses. Rachel is a true hostess. She recommended great restaurants and shops

Not only is the apartment large and well appointed, the beds are comfortable (an unusual aspect in Europe). This secure apartment is on the 6th floor of a modern building and is accessible by elevator in a central location. It is close to the metro, bus stops, grocery store, bakery, restaurants and shopping right off a main thoroughfare in Paris and close to the Bastille where you can catch the Open Tour Bus that takes you to all of the sights in Paris.

The view of Paris is pretty good. One can see the Eiffel Tower and the Pompidou from the balcony.

Wi-Fi and television is included.

The hostess lives 3 floors above the apartment and, while she maintained our privacy, she was always available for any help.

Our son and daughter spent two weeks with us and we never felt cramped. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms afforded plenty of room for the 4 of us.

The apartment is well stocked with anything you would need in the kitchen to cook with, and Rachel makes it a perfect 10.

What an experience in Paris!

This property was truly a Home Away (from home) in every sense. Mme Rachelle is a gracious and thoughtful host, and all the very favorable comments about her made by previous reviewerss are really true! We arrived on an early flight, and she greeted us with coffee and pastries (plus wine and cheese for later in the day), then walked me around the neighborhood to point out the ATM, the Metro, the bakery, the grocery, etc.---all very conveniently located.

We were 2 couples and I was a little concerned prior to arrival that the "cosy" in her listing description would translate into "small"---but that was not the case at all. There is ample seating in the dining area and living room, and bedrooms were spacious, certainly by European standards. Of course, being two couples, we really were pleased with the 2 showers and 2 toilets, and we made use of the washer and dryer on the last day. The furnishings are not new or modern, but added to the "homey" allure. And wi-fi was stong and reliable, unlike other places we stayed on our vacation. If my future travels ever include Paris, I would go straight back to this property and Mme. Rachelle.

I took a taxi from the airport and Rachel met me at the gate and brought me up to this lovely, spacious apartment. Everything was exactly as described in her ad. I stayed in Paris for one month, had several friends and family visit me. Having two bedrooms and two baths gave everyone all the privacy they needed. I fell in love with the apartment and have already rented it for five weeks in 2016. I've been to Paris over a dozen times and this is the first place that I've stayed where I felt truly at home in Paris. The location is perfect, staying in an arrondissement that isn't touristy and has lots of local restaurants, the fabulous Bastille Market, and is just 10 minutes to Place des Vosges in the Marais area. One of the best things was having Rachel upstairs to answer any questions. She and I have become great friends and I look forward to my return to Paris, my second home.

Rechelle is such a nice landlady and does a great job of taking care of her clients. There is not much to add to previous comments. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Paris with our friends Laurel and Dave. We stayed from September 19-30. The weather was warm, and it only rained a couple of times when we were there. The apartment is fully furnished. You will want for nothing. Highly recommended.

Good Value, Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment with friends for 6 nights and were very pleased overall. It was a comfortable setting for four people, whether you decided to cook in the kitchen or eat out. The location was perfect for a Paris visit - the metro is just a block away to take you anywhere in the city, and there are several small bistros nearby, as well as as grocery store and the most delightful little shop on the corner that is well stocked with meats, fromage, pate, etc. There's also a wonderful wine shop nearby! The apartment has lots of comfy seating and the balcony is small but awesome. The kitchen is well stocked and we loved having the washer and dryer right there. We felt very secure in the apartment as well...maybe not as quiet on the streets below, but if you keep the windows closed when it's noisy, you can sleep well. The bathrooms are a little different in that the separate WC is located down the hall from the on-suite bath in the Master. The other bathroom was good. Overall, we loved it! The Owner is a sweetheart who takes care of you, but keeps her distance during your stay. I would definitely stay here would be great place to call home during the final stage of the Tour de France on the Champs Elysses, just a metro ride away!
