Great location and very cozy in the heart of St Germain but on a quiet street.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days and enjoyed being able to walk to the museums and other sites. The dealings and communication with the owner was very easy with no problems. The apartment was very clean and cozy. If you like to nap in the day, be prepared for the bells from a nearby church, charming. Be also prepared to walk up and down 97 steps in a circular staircase several times a day. You do not want to reach ground level and have forgotten your wallet in the apartment. We looked at the stair challenge as our exercise for the day. I would stay again. Missing it already.

Perfection in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We would stay again here without hesitation. The location is superb, with top restaurants, boutiques, Metro, grocery stores and more all just steps away. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the apartment must have been recently renovated, as the appliances, plumbing and windows are all new and deluxe. Love the high ceilings! This place is perfect for two to three people; my husband and I felt we had a lot of room to spread out and relax. The bed was comfy and the linens were top hotel quality. Slept great! We had only one small issue during our stay and Leslie addressed it immediately.

The one negative thing about this apartment is the fact that it’s only reachable by many stairs. And when I say many, I mean many. But if you’re in good shape you can easily overlook this and come to laugh about the stairs, as we did each time we trudged up them after a long day of sightseeing. Despite the stairs, we’re still recommending this apartment to everyone we know. A great place to stay in Paris!

Perfect apartment in the heart of Paris!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect apartment in the heart of Paris. Everything was within walking distance. We walked 10-12km each day. It was very quiet with double pane windows. The kitchen was perfect for breakfast and snacks. The wifi worked well. The beds were comfortable. There was plenty of hot water. As noted by everyone else, the stairs are a bit of a workout but for two fit almost 60 year olds we felt that the exercise helped to work off some of the fantastic french food! I would definitely stay here again!

Fabulous Location and Perfect Host

  • 4 of 5

I understand the subjective nature of writing reviews so it is vital to be upfront with what is most important to me as a renter:

1. Location - In St. Germaine you are near tons of popular locations within walking distance and two Metro lines. Excellent.

2. Cleanliness - The apartment was immaculate and especially the kitchen and bathroom which are absolutely necessary.

3. The apartment had all the necessary bathroom (soap, etc) and kitchen items (plates, silverware, cooking utensils, dishwasher tablets, laundry detergent, etc) so we didn't have to run out immediately and get something.

4. Owner was extremely responsive - I inundated Leslie with many emails, texts and he would answer very quickly and fully.

Leslie is completely upfront (with picture) of the spiral staircase that you have to take to get to the apartment and as a sixty year old I took this as a challenge - it was harder than I thought but I got my exercise while there. For the Americans reading this it is important to understand that while this is a 4th floor apartment the buildings in France start at "0" so this is flve flights.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this apartment!

First of all, you cannot beat the location! It is in the heart of the most prestigious and beautiful area of Paris. Most of the attractions (Museum d'Orsay, Louvre, Luxembourg garden, Notre Dame etc) are within 10-15 walk. ATM machine supermarket and pharmacy are within 2-3 walk which is very handy esp. when traveling with kids. Apartment is located on the top floor and has great view on parisian rooftops. We didn't mind the 99 steps though we were traveling with 3 year old kid who loved running down and didn't mind walking part of the route.

Apartment has nice feel and parisian charm. I liked that it was not like a soulless hotel and was not modernized to the point that you may feel like you are in furniture store. Apartment has everything one need and in great condition. We enjoyed great quality of Bose speakers and listened to jazz every night.

The most important for us was the fact that the owner was the most caring and super fast at communication. Leslie speaks English and very responsive. I misused laundry machine and it was fixed immediately though it was on Sunday and it is very hard to find anyone working on Sunday in Paris :)

We will be back and hopefully to this place again.

Great apt in Saint Germain

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is exactly like the pictures - great area of Paris. You can walk to everything - Notre Dame, Louvre, many different metro stops, cafes, bakeries, etc.

The only thing I would make sure renters should know is that there are 175 steps to walk up to reach the apartment, we used our fit bit to count!
