Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

A bright, compact, two bedroom apartment excellent for families traveling on a budget, or couples wanting to spread out!

This apartment sleeps up to 5 guests in three different rooms.

Welcome to the colorful village of Montmartre! This apartment is located near the Place St. Pierre at rue Steinkerque, literally at the foot of the Sacre Coeur basilica. But don't worry, you'll be high above the hustle and bustle, up on the 5th floor (6th floor to North Americans) in a building with an elevator! Sit on the balcony and have a glass of while while watching the world go by below, or take in the lovely view of Sacre Coeur!

The apartment features three rooms with three beds, making the apartment very flexible in terms of accommodating different configurations of guests.

A hallway running through the middle of the apartment ensures everyone can have easy access to the kitchen, shower room, and separate WC (toilet room).

On one side of the apartment is the main living/dining area and the master bedroom - both facing a quiet courtyard with tranquil views of the Halle St. Pierre and the small park above Place St. Pierre. The master bedroom features a large double bed comfortable for two adults, along with a chest of drawers, reading lamps and a radio.

The main living/dining area is also on this same side of the apartment as the master bedroom, with a door connecting the two. The living area has a selection of Paris guidebooks and many reading books, a CD player/radio, and a extendable dining table suitable for 6 guests. This room also has a comfortable sofa which converts into a large single bed.

Across the hallway is the bright second bedroom with balcony, which features a large leather sofa which converts into a deluxe, top-of-the-line sofabed which is as comfortable as a 'real' bed and suitable for two adults. This room also has a large closet, extra seating, a TV, DVD player with a selection of DVDs, and a small stereo with a collection of CDs. This room can be used a second living area or lounge for guests when not in use as a bedroom.

But of course the star of this room is the wonderful balcony, which is accessed by French doors. The balcony offers a lovely view of Sacre Coeur, and a table and chairs for enjoying the sunshine, a glass of wine, or even breakfast on Parisian summer morning. People watching on the street below can be entertaining, too!

The compact kitchen is off the main hallway of the apartment, and fully equipped with a gas stove and full-sized electric oven, dishwasher, clothes washer with dryer function, refrigerator, electric water kettle, coffee maker, toaster and all the necessary pots, pans and dishes and utensils for cooking. You'll even find basic cooking spices and condiments!

The bathroom is at the end of the hallway, and features a shower and sink/vanity area. The WC (toilet room) is in its own separate room, also off the main apartment hallway.

This apartment features WiFi Internet access and a telephone with free international calls to many countries, including the US, Canada, Australia, and many others. The television has some English news channels available, and many cable channels in French. All windows are double-glazed and have exterior metal shutters for blocking out the light.

We think you'll find this apartment to be an excellent value for families and friends traveling together, and the weekly rate is also appropriately discounted for couples just wanting the extra space the apartment has to offer to spread out!

We hope you enjoy our Parisian home away from home!

About Paula Caballero

John, who’s English, and Laura, une vraie Parisienne, bought this apartment over ten years ago to be their “home away from home” when visiting from London. Montmartre was the arrondissement of Paris John knew best and Laura had friends living nearby so it was natural they looked in the area. Like any other quarter of any other great city, Montmartre changes over time but still retains the feel of a village, especially if one heads off the tourist routes – after all, Montmartre only officially became part of Paris in 1860.

Paula Caballero purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Paula Caballero chose 18th Arrondissement Montmartre

After viewing many bizarre and downright horrible apartments, we knew this was the one for us the moment we stepped in the front door – full of light, views of Sacré Coeur from the balcony and bedroom, high and quiet above the bustle of Paris, well organised and, a big bonus if you’re arriving on the Eurostar or RER from an airport, only 10-15 minutes walk from the Gare du Nord.

What makes this apartment unique

Enjoy having breakfast or an aperitif on the balcony, using the small but very well equipped kitchen, the sight of trees from the bedroom window, views of Sacré Coeur and the rooftops of Paris – très romantique! Sunday food markets are open on rues des Abbesses and Lepic, and be sure to try the Friday afternoon market at Square d’Anvers. Sample the many neighbourhood bars and restaurants. Check out quirky local boutiques or rummaging in the fabric shops – the area is very good for clothes shopping and the main area in Paris for buying fabrics, buttons etc. Go to the Michou drag show and then don't be surpised if you see Michou himself dining at La Mascotte on rue des Abbesses the next day! Stroll round the Cimetière de Montmartre on an autumn afternoon. Climb up the Butte de Montmartre for the view – very touristy but still stunning and different every time, with the city spread out beneath you.

Great place -- less than a block from the Sacré-Cœur

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment while in Paris. Paula met us when we arrived and was super helpful and friendly. Given that we had come from the states and were a little jet-lagged, I was very grateful that all the beds (even the pull-out sofa beds) already had linens on them and were ready for us to collapse into when we were ready. One thing is now is that this place is right on the main touristy shopping street off the Sacre-Coeur and therefore, lots of activity and if you are one to head in early, you are going to hear people out and about and having fun into the night.

Perfect location! Great apartment.

  • 4 of 5

This place has character, comfortable, airy , balcony , cool neighborhood and more. Airy and breezy, elevator service to 5th floor. Look out the window and see the view.

Paula is an incredible host, she is a true concierge. She will have all the info from best food spots to having a Dr. Visit if you need one, transport to train or airport this girl is dialed in and was a big help.

I hope I get to deal with her again because she is a pro at her profession of making sure you get the best experience in Paris.

The apartment was perfect and in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

First Paula was wonderful and was easily accessible for questions. The apartment was exactly as described and in lovely Montmartre just a couple blocks from the metro. We had everything we needed in the apartment including things we did not expect like a washer dryer, hair dryer and toaster- this was marvelous. The neighborhood was quiet and delightful. Thank you for a great Paris experience. I will definitely use VRBO again and recommend to others! This is the best.

Great place to stay in Montmartre!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four recently spent a week in this lovely, compact apartment. The location is fantastic - you are literally half a block from the (many) steps up to Sacre Coeur, and there are a million great places to eat in the neighborhood. Easy access to the subway and busses. Paula and Karina were very helpful and responsive. We loved it.

Two things to note: First, you have to be OK with a lot of stairs. The apartment is on the fifth floor (sixth for us US-dwellers). That was fine with us, but it does mean that popping out for a croissant is a bit of an ordeal. Second, the internet in the apartment does not work well enough to be listed as an amenity here. Regardless whether day or night, using laptop or phone, sitting right next to the router or across the apartment, the wi-fi was frequently off, and when it was on it would cut out every few minutes, sometimes at inopportune times (say, between buying a ticket to Versailles online and downloading it). Sometimes the router would spontaneously turn off altogether. It's not the owner's fault - this seems to be an ISP issue - but it means that you should be prepared to use your phone's data for all internet at the apartment. This is a minor thing, compared with all the great things about the apartment, but it's something you should be aware of if it's important to you.

All in all, this is a great place to stay in Paris!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words, Bill! It was a pleasure to host you! I would like to say that the Internet problem you encountered has thankfully now been resolved - our ISP changed the modem/router and we are back up to speed! I am sorry for the inconvenience you experienced. I should also note that while the apartment is on the fifth floor, there is an elevator in the building so guests do not need to take the stairs if they don't want to. We hope to welcome you back to Paris again in the future! Many thanks, Paula & Karina

Nice pied-a-terre in the middle of Montmartre

  • 5 of 5

We'd stayed in Montmartre before but this was the first time we really experienced it. We arrived on Sunday when Rue Steinquerque is closed to automobiles so we had to drag our bags from Blvd Clichy two blocks through a crowd of tourists, souvenir sellers and three-card monte players (I counted two games but there might have been three). In other words, it was a perfect introduction to Montmartre and its unique personality as the center of arts and boulevard entertainment. Rue Steinquerque is the main two-block street leading from the Anvers Metro station to Sacre Coeur, just up the hill from the apartment. The apartment itself is in a beautiful, well-maintained building in contrast to the souvenir shops below. On the fifth floor, it has a small terrace that looks out on a beautiful panorama of Paris rooftops and, to the right, the hillside that includes Sacre Coeur. The sofa bed in the front room opens easily and is comfortable, unlike other sofa beds we've known and the small kitchen is well appointed. We visited the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay districts -- both easy to get to by Metro -- and also explored Montmartre, fascinating and not as crowded at central Paris. Starting at the Sacre Coeur we walked through the old neighborhood that was once the center of the most famous art epoch in modern history. The Montmarte Museum, in a house where Renoir painted one of his best-known works, is a great place to explore the area's history both before and after it was incorporated into Paris. The streets uphill from the Steinquetque apartment are also nice to explore where Picasso's Bateau-Lavoir once stood and today there are lots of cafes and shops without being "gentrified." On early morning walks, saw young fathers and mothers taking their kids to the local school and also the cafes still open for business. There is still a bohemian atmosphere here that we really enjoyed.
