About The Owner

Since more than 10 years we take care of our guests. They come from all over the world, and many of them on a regular basis. Our goal is to make your stay an unforgettable event of your life.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

Why The Owner chose 5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter

The Latin Quarter is one of the most attractive areas of the French capital. It is located centrally but still keeps its original charme "à la française" and its irresistable Parisian flair.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in a quiet side street with almost no traffic. You enjoy a fabulous view to the green park. There are many shops, restaurants, cafés, bistros and pubs nearby. Start your morning with a stroll on the fresh market on Place Monge, just around the corner. Don't miss the tasty baked "Baguette Tradionnelle" at the popular French bakery in rue Lacepède. Meet friends for a coffee or have a Pastis at one of the busy French Cafés on Place Contrescape. From there take a relaxed walk along the historical Rue Mouffetard up to the famously beautiful "Panthéon". Visit the picturesque "Jardin des Plantes" and take a tea with a selection of Arab biscuits in the Mosque nearby. Dinner on the roof terrace of the Museum for Arabic Arts & Culture. From there you enjoy a magnificently enjoyable view on Paris by night: Notre Dame, Sacré Coeur, Eiffel Tower, the church Saint Sulpice... Visit the vibrant variété night show at the famous "Paradis Latin". Explore "La nuit à Paris" for lovers and life artists !

Comfortable, pleasant, well equiped, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend a stay in the apartment. It is comfortable (though one more chair in the living room would be a great addition), well equiped, nicely decorated and well furnished. Appliances are modern. View of the park lovely. Located centrally in a real neighborly neighborhood. Bed is comfortable, heating available you get cold, plenty of hot water....an all around good deal. We were sorry we had to leave.

Spacious, ultra clean, and very quiet. Communication with the owner was excellent as well as the property manager. Walking distance to so many wonderful neighborhoods and sites. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Perfect Gem of an appartment in an outstanding location

  • 4 of 5

Location,Location !!! The apartment is in the 5th, and a short walk to the Seine, Rue Mouffetard, Jardin des Plantes, Boulevard Saint-Germain, two metro lines, two grocery stores, and endless possibilities of restaurants, bakeries, and specialty shops to fulfill every culinary dream. Yet the apartment is on a quiet street across from a very green park where children play . The apartment itself is very well appointed and seems larger than depicted in the photographs. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances, though we hardly made use of them. The living area is comfortable and it's great fun looking out the window and watching the children in the park. The bedroom becomes a perfect sanctuary at night by closing the door to the living area and latching the outside shutters.

But now we come to the lack of a fifth star...the bed and pillows ! As some others have mentioned, the bed was, for us, rock-hard, unyielding. Extremely difficult to sleep in, until we located a second duvet, folded that in half, and used it to somewhat cushion the upper halves of our bodies. That somewhat alleviated the sleeping issue, but I really think that a foam or other cushioning mattress top would be a much appreciated addition and rate that additional star. And as hard as that bed was, the pillows were the exact opposite, totally non-supportive. There were three pillows each on each side, which we used,as well as two additional ones we found on the premises to try and elevate our heads. Perhaps we're a bit fussy, but I cannot function without a good nights' sleep.

Other than that, the apartment is spacious,comfortable,very quiet and safe/secure with multiple locked entry doors to access the apartment door...sort of a fortress. During our 11 day stay in mid-March 2017, there was comfortable radiator heat and fast, reliable, and I hope, secure internet/wi-fi. We did not use the TV and entertainment system.

The owner seems absolutely oriented to help and assist in any reasonable way he can to facilitate an enjoyable experience in his Paris apartment. Every time we called, texted, or e-mailed him, there was an almost instant response.

A great location to enjoy all that Paris has to offer.

PS: we have exchanged against a softer matress ... ((-:

10th Anniversary Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Apartment: 4.5/5

Location: 5/5

Overall Exp: 5/5

Wife and I celebrated her birthday on the 8th and our 10th anniversary in Paris after not seeing each other for three months due to my work taking me to all the worst places on the planet. This trip was important. Budget was focused on experiencing things outside the flat but the flat was required to have a romantic charm. We were going to immerse ourselves into the Latin Quartier culture so we wanted walking distance to good cafés, brasseries, bars, and shops. Bonus: walking distance to most anything touristy. We found the perfect balance due to this location which provided us the best home base imaginable.

Apartment:

Elevated ground floor with a view overlooking a beautiful park surrounding an old arena. Apartment is quaint, homey, and charming. Everything worked as advertised. The bed could be more comfortable but I believe that's the only thing that could be improved (yet it didn't take away from our overall experience or sleep... And the wife is picky about her beds ;)). The Streubers were absolutely amazing. We didn't need anything, but if we did, contact info was swapped and I had full confidence they'd come to our aide in a New York minute. We received our deposit back when they said we would. They didn't sweat the details even though I usually cover my bum regarding both pre and post rental walkthroughs. It was more of a personal experience rather than business. 100% trustworthy folks.

Location:

Bread and butter. Zoo around the corner, a short walk to the Pantheon, Gardens, and pretty much anything else. Über or bus to a few places north of the river. Grocery store right down the road. Oddly amazing tea at the Mosque around the corner. Great eats everywhere. Be sure to cross Monge and hang out in the Mouffetard area. This is all Old University stomping grounds... Great food, drink, prices and service. Even better people. We met a couple that helped translate getting my pizza order right down the road from the flat. They sent us a surprise care package to our house in Texas a couple weeks later. Did I mention great people?

If you found this review integral to your decision to choose this HomeAway gem, and you find yourselves enjoying your experience as much as we did, stop by the "Brewberry" (off Mouffetard and Pot de Fer) and tell Marine that Shaun and Carleen said, "Hi!" If she says Simon is around, buy them both a beer for us! You won't regret it. Enjoy!

Very Nice Location

  • 2 of 5

If you like to wake each morning with a back pain from the extra firm mattress, this is the apartment for you. If you like to have the bedroom bright yellow from the streetlight across the street, this is the place for you. If you like to flush toilets three to four time before they begin to be clean, this is the place for you.

Otherwise, this is a great quiet neighborhood with fabulous bakeries, fruit stores, butcher shops and local markets six days a week. Ask how to operate the washing machine, dishwasher, stove and oven since we found that we were guessing and not always correct.

Owner's Response: Dear Craig, thank you for your feedback. 1. During check-in we have instructed you how to use window shutters, ...why did you not use them ? Street light in the cities are common. Even in this very quiet side street. 2. At our charge we have unblocked the toilet after you have thrown a towel into it. 3. The bed mattress is of high quality and particularly healthy. All our tenants have appreciated it since many years. We have however left you with an additional soft layer for the mattress. Why did you not use it ? 4. We have shown you how to use all appliances and also handed to you all the instruction manuals (incl. stove, washing machine etc.), ... did you forget ?. We understand that travelling at your advanced age is a tiring exercise... (-; Btw: Please can you return the kitchen items and furniture accessories that you took with you ? They are rather expensive to replace... Regards.

Une bonne solution selon Diana et Georges !

  • 4 of 5

Pour résider et visiter Paris ,un appartement agréable très propre et lumineux dans un lieu parfait pour aller ici ou là ,literie confortable ,cuisine complète et pratique . Gamme complète de commerces à proximité .

Par goût personnel ,nous préférons une douche au lieu d'une baignoire .
