Comfortable, felt right at home

  • 5 of 5

My seventeen year-old daughter and I spent eight nights at this apartment. I felt lucky to have found it and was not disappointed! The apartment is comfortable, clean and is exactly as the photographs show. It is a welcoming place and I felt instantly right at home. I'm sure this was due in part to Jennifer's warm welcome (which actually begins with the text/SMS messages you send when you land at the airport). She greeted us at the main entrance to the building and she and a friendly gentleman (forget his name) carried our suitcases all the way up to the fifth floor. She showed us around the apartment and explained how to use the coffee maker, dishwasher, wash/dryer, televisions, etc. There were fresh flowers on a table, and chilled champagne and water for us in the refrigerator--nice touches.

During our stay the temperatures in Paris were quite warm, and continued to get warmer (97 F/36 C). Jennifer contacted me on the day the temperature was expected to soar and let me know that a fan was going to brought to us. This was thoughtful and appreciated! In spite of the heat and no air conditioning, the temperature in the apartment was never uncomfortable.

We loved the location in the center of Marais. It was within walking distance of many of the places we wanted to see and there are numerous cafes to visit in the area. There is a grocery store/market across the street. The apartment itself is not on one of the busy streets which was perfect. I will say that although we were on a quiet street, sounds travel up and we could hear people talking/laughing/singing (yes singing--it was great to hear people having fun!) , sirens, motorcycles, etc. Keep in mind this was because we kept the windows open most of the time. The noise didn't really bother us too much but my daughter who slept on the sofa bed did have to close the windows a couple nights (weekend nights when more people were out). I just wanted to mention this in case you need silence when you sleep and you are traveling in warm weather months.

Nearly all the reviews mention the climb up the wooden stairs. You do eventually get used to it! This is the only way to get to/from the apartment. No elevator or emergency exit; however, I believe I read that an elevator will be installed.

The apartment was a lovely place to return after busy days of sightseeing and a lot of walking. I would highly recommend it!

Great stay in the Marais!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Alain's apartment in the Marais district of Paris. The apartment was very clean when we arrived and exactly as represented on VRBO. It is fully stocked with kitchen tools/appliances and has storage space as well for clothes/belongings. Jennifer was very helpful during our stay and greeted us as planned on arrival. The apartment is in a convenient location close to restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores & the metro. We would definitely stay there again for our next visit to Paris! Thanks Alain & Jennifer!

Great Apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as pictured and described. The bathroom was spacious with lots of shelves and heated towel rack. The shower was great! There were lots of kitchen supplies (dishes, pots/pans, coffee/tea, spices, etc.). Jennifer was waiting for us at the apartment to show us around and was super helpful when we needed to arrange a taxi to the train station. She wanted to ensure we contacted her immediately if there were any issues. The couches and table were great places to rest at the end of our long walking days and prepare for the next day. The location was great and close to many restaurants as well as a grocery store across the street. There were plenty of guide books for us to peruse. The 102 stairs up was a bit challenging with luggage but Jennifer was eager to help us get our luggage up the stairs. We would recommend this property to friends and would return on a future trip to Paris.

Perfect week in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in Paris and this a lot had to do with Alain and Jennifer's apartment in the Marais. The location was perfect, steps to everything the Marias has to offer but on a relatively quiet street so very little outside noise. I am almost embarrassed to say that we never left the neighborhood and enjoyed a weeks worth of museums, shopping and amazing meals all within easy walking distance. The apartment is lovely, exactly as described by other reviewers, clean and compact, with thoughtful supplies of everything from coffee, tea, qtips, laundry powder, salt, peppers, oils and vinegar and a very well stocked kitchen - we made smoothies every morning using the blender and there were several choices of coffee makers depending on how you like your coffee. The beds were very comfortable with lovely white linens.- even the fold out couch, an ingenious design which meant we didn't need to find a place to put the cushions while it was out -had probably the most comfortable mattress we had ever experienced in a fold out sofa bed. The master bedroom is very small, but there is lots of cupboard space and hangers and several choices about where to put your luggage. We loved the small deck, even during Paris' recent deluge we were still able to enjoy sitting out, plus the well taken care of plants and open French doors added to our enjoyment of the apartment. I can't wait to return, I am sure the 5 flights of stairs did us some good! Thank you Alain and Jennifer for all of your help with our questions.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time at this charming apartment and the welcome, help and kindness shown to us was exemplary. The apartment itself was very well equipped and provided a wonderful homely base for our holiday. We did find the five flights of stairs a challenge however ( we are no longer in the first flush of youth). On the plus side though, we were a lot fitter by the end of our stay!

A big thank you to Alain and Jennifer for making our stay such a memorable one.

We are delighted to hear that a lift will be installed in the property later this year and hope to return in 2017.

quiet, charming apartment in the Marais

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my two young daughters (5 and 7) in Alain's apartment for 8 nights. For us, it was a perfect alternative to a hotel. The apartment is small, but well laid out. There is a separate bedroom, and small but functional kitchen, and a large bathroom. We enjoyed making simple meals from local shops as an alternative to the heavier and richer food we ate when we were out.

We enjoyed the space and the neighborhood. We were in short walking distance to many museums, shops, cafes and sights metro, which we used to access other parts of the city. Another benefit was the short walk to several beautiful parks.

Alain and Jennifer were easy to reach and responsive to questions and issues.

Many reviewers have mentioned this, but the walk up the stairs the apartment could be a problem for some.
