Gorgeous place to stay in Paris. Wonderful Host! Beautiful design and fixtures. Huge outdoor garden.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious Paris home. Joshua is an excellent host - very responsive with our inquiry and arrangements prior to our visit. We loved this home's wonderful open floor plan and huge outdoor garden/outdoor terrace. The apartment has many custom artistic/designer touches: modern fixtures, built-in sinks, seamless cabinets, glass-enclosed master shower, and cinema screen / sliding doors that partitioned the common areas from the private bedrooms. We enjoyed discovering the luxurious design elements, the whimsical art work throughout the home, and the large dog sculpture in the garden. The floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors made the apartment very expansive and bright. We appreciated the automatic exterior window shutters which kept the sunlight out when we were getting over our jetlag the first couple of days. The beds were very comfortable and the built-in dining table was perfect for breakfast before heading out to explore Paris. The detailed neighborhood guide from Joshua was very thoughtful. We loved that Jardin du Luxembourg , restaurants and shops were all so close to the apartment. I also liked that it is on the ground floor so we don't have to climb many stairs after a full day of walking around Paris. This quiet apartment's location is fantastic! We would love to return and stay at this apartment next time we are in Paris. I will certainly recommend this place to my friends. Thank you Joshua and Severine for the bottle of champagne as well! Merci beaucoup!

The property in Saint Germain was amazing. So beautiful and an delightful and quiet garden.

  • 5 of 5

The property in Saint Germain was amazing. Close to the RER for airport transfers and near 3 Metro stations. The best thing about the location is the Luxembourg Gardens and the excellent restaurants in the area. Inviticus was great for us.

My grandchildren loved the bed that pulled down from the ceiling and the garden. They name the wonderful dog sculpture Daisy. We did not use the cinema equipment as we were to busy, but loved the coloured lights in the disco space. There are shutters for privacy and to keep the apartment cool and secure. Overall in all my many travels it is one of my top ten destinations and that is high praise indeed. It was excellent value and Joshua was so considerate and efficient. Will definitely stay there again.

A Gem Getaway in the Middle of Paris!

  • 5 of 5

This ground floor apartment is in the perfect part of Paris while also being an architectural and interior design wonder. We loved every minute spent in the apartment, wanting to return to spend more time either the garden or in the marvelous living room or the comfortable kitchen space. I'm excited to put many of the ideas and attention to detail the owner has put into this home into my house - it's that innovative and well designed.

If you want something special in the heart of Paris, I can't think of a better choice.

Great Location/Great appartment. Fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stay at the appartment for 9 days during Christmas an New Year. We are a family of five with 3 teenagers (19,17,14) and it was a perfect place for the five of us. This is the neighborhood that we like the most in Paris, it has a lot of flavour, many places to visit, nice restaurants. Wey usually stay at a hotel but this time wey try something different and it was a great decision. It's two blocks away from the Luxembourg Gardens that we use every day for a morning run (It's a great park all year around). The appartment it's great, very nice and spacious rooms an bathrooms, nice living room that is low to the floor, big and functional kitchen and a formidable terrace that It's a luxury in Paris.

The location It's very convenience, very quiet street, with a lot of services less than one block away: Franprix(small supermarket), a Patisserie in the corner, Velib station just outside the building, a metro station. Ten minute walking distance from Saint German, and a lot of nice streets to walk around. For sure wey will try to comeback a stay again at this appartment.

Last but not least, Joshua provide us a very good attention from the first time we contact him in order to make all the arrangements, to the moment that we arrive to the appartment. He made us a very warm reception and we thank him for that.

This apartment is fabulous.

I lived in Paris and have traveled there several times but never expected to find anything like this there. The entire apartment is a work of art and that includes the outdoor living space. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of space to sit in solitude or read a book or nap or do anything else we wanted to do. The beds were extremely comfortable, including the one that comes down from the ceiling. The apartment was very warm and welcoming and even though there were art pieces throughout, it was very livable.

The owner was very easy to work with and I felt as though he was there for us should we need anything, but not at all intrusive as I have experienced with other vacation rentals. I will be back and for a much longer time.

One Week In Paris

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. Josh the host was very accommodating in also letting us stay a bit longer (without a charge) on check out day since my girlfriends flight was leaving in the evening. The location of the apartment is very central to everything in terms of brasseries on Montparnasse or St. Germain de Pres in general. Being close to the Luxembourg garden was also very nice. Had a couple of issues with the sound system since one of the speakers wasn't working properly however that was a minor issue. Overall the apartment is very comfortable and the design very unique which someone has to be into. We made good use of it.

The terrace was great to have as we still had some warm nights in Paris so being able to sit outside was another plus.
