convenient, comfortable, responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

The flat is very nice and just what we needed, especially for proximity to Gare D'Austerlitz. Comfortable, convenient, clean, well organized just-right space. Any questions or needs were promptly addressed by owner & greatly appreciated. Good neighborhood, quiet for sleeping. We hope to come back regularly to this flat.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very nice, clean, well-maintained and in a great neighbourhood. It was very easy to get to all of the places we wanted to go. Jean-Louis was very responsive on email.

We did run into a few snags. The map on vrbo is not where the apartment is. Jean-Louis has tried to have this fixed with vrbo but please be aware it is on Rue Saint-Marcel near Rue de L'Hopital - close to Gare L'Austerlitz and Jardins des Plantes - not right next to Jardin du Luxemboug. We also ran into the problem of a labour demonstration closing access to the apartment (and much of the area) on the day we arrived - thus delaying our arrival by many hours (this was tough after an overnight flight, a young child and luggage - but obviously not Jean-Louis's fault!)

Overall - this is a great apartment rental.

The property was clean and ready for us, convenient, secure, and had everything we needed. Close to metro, with cafes and bakeries nearby. Owner generously allowed us a little extra time at checkout since we were stuck in the Catacombs. Not overly friendly but no matter. The apartment could use some comfortable seating to make the living area more inviting for hanging out, but that's a bonus that we didn't "need". It would probably keep us from coming back to this apt personally, but if you plan to run around looking at all the sights like we did, then it has all you need.

Lovely true 2 bedroom property

  • 5 of 5

Having difficulty finding a property with 2 true bedrooms? Look no farther. Steps from Saint Marcel metro. 2 bedrooms, Living/Dining, kitchen, bath. Clean, quiet and well furnished. Easy access - all by code - no need to meet the owner. Nice neighborhood with great restaurants. Highly recommend.

Clean , nice location

  • 4 of 5

Good for our needs, quiet. Easy to get to bus and metro. Apartment is very basic, but clean. Shower door is very small.

Parisian flat - just as described!

  • 5 of 5

This flat, in the 5th district, was just as described.

It's a 3rd floor walk up, and is buffered from the street by another building. The windows look out into courtyards.

The building is old and warm and cosy. We loved it!

The first bedroom has a full bed, the living room has an eating area and a chair that folded flat into a twin sleeper, and the last bedroom has another double bed.

The kitchen was more than adequate for cooking and had a washer/dryer. As other reviews said, the bathroom is tiny but functional. The shower is very very small, so a heavy person might have trouble. We all made due though.

Located near the train station and many restaurants and shops, we found it an ideal home base location.

The owner was helpful and easy to work with. We would stay here again!
