Beautiful apartment with everything you need
My husband, two year old daughter and I stayed here for a weekend in April. We really feel we struck gold with this apartment - it is beautifully renovated and furnished, and contained everything we needed. Kate and Chris were great with their communication and Chris was really friendly when he met us at the apartment on Friday.
Kate and Chris were able to supply a really good quality travel cot, mattress and sleeping bag, which is rare to find, and made our trip much easier knowing we didn't have to bring these things. There are also some games in a cupboard to keep everyone entertained, we particularly enjoyed Mr Potato Head and the Orchard Games sets.
We cooked in the apartment on two nights - the tiny kitchen area contains everything you need, and there are various small supermarkets nearby. On the Saturday night we went to La Marine which is just across the canal and was great - we'd recommend this restaurant. Child-friendly, too. The area is clearly quite young and trendy but felt very safe and relaxed.
The apartment was lovely and quiet as it faces onto an inner courtyard, and blissfully cool to return home to at the end of some unseasonably hot and sticky days! It's a short walk to the nearest Metro so is easy to get out and about, we also caught buses and used Uber for a taxi etc. Jardin Villemin is between the apartment and the Gare de l'Est and has a great playground for kids along with nice spaces to relax.
In short, we'd hugely recommend this property. We'll certainly be recommending it to friends and family! We don't tend to return to holiday locations particularly often as there is so much of the world to see, but if we were coming back to Paris we would definitely be booking this place again!
Quaint, charming, good location
Our family of 5 did well in this lovely apartment in this quaint and charming building. The area was full of restaurants, shos, bakeries and smart markets for easy and convenient. I recommend this apartment.
Clean / well kept / great location to the market & metro
Chris meet us at the unit and explained the use of the appliances, etc. He was very friendly and responsive to our emails. Two bedroom unit was fine for three adults. We had breakfast each morning there and ate out dinner. Metro was very close and we didn't get lost.
Needed washcloths and a may in the shower to provide a less slippery shower floor surface.
Overall enjoyed our time there and in Paris.
This charming apartment on the canal was perfect in every way
Kate is a wonderful host who answered all our questions, provided valuable recommendations and surprised us with her thoughtfulness and generosity when we arrived. The location was so Parisian with festivals on the street and people picnicking on the canal banks every day. With a baby and two children we were able to walk to all the sites in Paris. Our 4 days in Paris were made very special because we stayed in this apartment. Thank you
Charming, comfortable and central
Very nice! The beds were very comfortable and the apartment is bright and clean with everything we needed. It is very central and close to the Gare de l'est and Jacques Bonsergeant metro stations.
Chris and Kate kindly met us at the apartment and showed us how to operate appliances etc. They also left us drinks in the refrigerator which
were much appreciated.
This was a great experience and we would stay there again.
Charming Paris Apt
Chris & Kate have made this a charming spot with everything you need to be comfortable.
Very personal attention to details. We were greeted by Chris who walked us through the features and functions, which was an excellent start.
We found a few food items and champagne waiting for us and Holiday decorations.
We loved the charm of the apartment and the location is outstanding, with restaurants literally steps away as well as beautiful clothing stores and grocery stores. It is an easy walk to the subway Republique access points that will start you on the way to any part of the city.
We would highly recommend a stay here.
