About Natsumi Hagita

Hi. My name is Natsumi. I grew up in Tokyo, Japan until high school, went to San Diego University in California, USA then moved to Paris. I had an internet business in Paris. Now I am back and forth between Paris and Hammamet, Tunisia for a personal reason.

I enjoy renting apartment to travellers as I love meeting people with different back ground and culture. I hope I will be the one to do the check in for you but since I live part of the time in Tunisia now, it will be my assistant, Mark who will be there for you in case of my absence. He is very kind and helpful.

He will be able to take care of you throughout your stay.

Natsumi Hagita purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Natsumi Hagita chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais

This charming 18th century apartment was entirely redone and equipped in 2008 keeping the character and charm of its original features ( genuine hardwood floor, antique tile floor called 'tomettes' in the kitchen, and marble diamond 'Versailles' patterned floor in the bathroom).

And it is in the greatest location to enjoy Paris!

What makes this apartment unique

And not like many apartment is Paris, it is very bright with 6 large windows and you even have a nice view of a lawn with trees and green.

With a step out, you are in the center of Marais surrounded by many restos, cafes and boutiques.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As 90 % of our clients are Japanese and they leave their comments in the little guest book that we prepared in the apartment, I just translated one of them below for your reference.

"For the last 4 years, we have been staying in apartment hotels in Paris but we've never been in one as confortable as your apt. My wife regrets not having stayed here for our whole vacation. Next year, we would like to come in May to stay here longer period! From Mr and Mrs Saito.

A little gem in the heart of the Marais

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Natsumi's apartment for 5 nights at the end of November with my elderly other. It was a perfect place - ideal for the two of us and clearly also very workable for 4 people. Attention to detail is excellent. Wi-fi worked well and it's possible to make phone calls to many other countries for no extra charge - very helpful to keep in touch with family. The photos accurately portray the charm, light and peace of this lovely property - beautifully quiet and yet right in the heart of the Marais. St Paul Metro station is a one minute walk away and there are plentiful restaurants and shops close by. At a cold time of the year the apartment was cosy and warm. My mother had a wonderful time and the two flights up to the apartment were no problem, even at 84 years of age!

Thank you Natsumi for a lovely stay. I've stayed in several different Parisian apartments over the years and this is a real find!

Beautiful Paris apartment, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several wonderful days in this fantastic Paris apartment. It had everything we needed and fit us comfortably as a family of 5. Everything that we needed was there- kitchen supplies, a washing machine, linens, tv, wifi, etc. making it a comfortable first Paris visit for our family.

The location is amazing and the feel of the apartment and quiet street make you feel as though you live in Paris...wonderful. It took only 2 minutes to walk to the metro stop St. Paul, a line of taxis, an amazing boulangerie (Manon) and several small groceries and cafes. Yet the apartment is a quiet oasis with lovely courtyard views and a wonderful place for rest after days spent walking around the city.

The Marais is a great neighborhood and many shops, restaurants, and community parks and gardens are minutes walk from the apartment.

The owner is a pleasure to work with and was excellent with communication!

We already want to return to Paris and to stay in this apartment!

Quintessential Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Paris, we couldn't have asked for a better location or apartment. The apartment was clean, full of light and felt very spacious. It had everything we needed, and while the kitchen was tiny, it was functional - if you are planning on doing a lot of cooking, it might not be the best choice, but for simple meals it is fine. Both beds were very comfortable. The only negatives are the size of the 2nd bedroom, with the sofa bed open, there is no room for a suitcase - a very minor inconvenience, and access to the apartment may be an issue for someone with limited mobility, it is 3 floors up a very old winding staircase.

The building is very secure, a short walk to the metro and all other conveniences, grocery, bakery, etc., are close by. Notre-Dame is also a walk-able distance. Le Marais is a wonderful area to explore.

Natsumi provided us with everything we needed to know on how to find the apartment and on the general area. There is a booklet in the apartment explaining how to use everything, and we had a number of someone to contact if we had encountered any issues.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone! I hope to be able to visit again soon!

Cozy, Cute, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters, both in their 20's, and I had the pleasure of staying in Natsumi's apartment earlier this summer. This was our first trip to Paris, and not knowing what to expect as far as neighborhoods and good locations, I'm glad we chose the Marais and this apartment. It was so easy to get to the bus stop and Metro station, and the walk to the water bus stop was fairly close, too. The girls shared the larger bedroom while I took the smaller one. We were all very comfortable. (Because the second bedroom is small, you will need to keep your suitcase in another room.) The bathroom was the largest we had out of four total places we stayed while in France. The shower was terrific! Everything in the apartment was clean and in good working condition. The wifi was fast and reliable. We never cooked a meal in the kitchen, but we were happy to have the small fridge to hold our snacks and drinks. Even though Paris was having a heat wave during our stay, we stayed comfortable with the windows open, using the fans provided. The only problem we had was actually finding the apartment the first day. When we got off the Metro and looked at the big map on the street level, we couldn't find the exact street on that map. Come to find out, it was hidden by a symbol, so we followed Natsumi's directions the best we could and eventually saw where to turn left. (Two days later, we looked at the big map and noticed a better one on the opposite side.) We were met by her assistant who showed us everything. Her English was excellent. We never met Natsumi, but she was always very responsive to emails, and it was obvious that she wanted to please her guests. Our only regret for this trip was we didn't have enough time to explore more of Marais due to time constraints. We'd love to stay at this apartment again if we are lucky enough to have a second trip to Paris!

Excellent choice for your stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Natsumi's excellent apartment from June 12 to 15th, 2015. The apartment is small, but it was perfect for the three of us (my husband and me, and our 18-year-old son). It was extremely clean, and the beds were very comfortable.

Although the apartment is located in an older building, and the entryway and stairs are old, the apartment itself is modernized. It has a lovely garden tub with shower in the bathroom, and a tiny kitchen with apartment-sized appliances and everything you need to make coffee or a quick meal. There is a clothes washer, but no dryer (there is a drying rack for your clothes).

The best part is the neighborhood. It is located on a quiet side street in a vibrant Marais neighborhood, very close to two Metro stations and tons of great restaurants and pastry shops. One evening I was walking on the main boulevard near the apartment and the entire street became filled with rollerbladers, hundreds and hundreds of them -- something apparently arranged by the city. At the weekend we discovered the Paris Marathon runners on the same boulevard.

We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it highly.
