it's complicated

  • 3 of 5

This is a unique property - for good and bad. It is essentially a two story building that has been transformed into a four level space - basically one room per level. This results in 4 different staircases - two of which have no hand rails, one of which has uneven, narrow treads (one of which is slightly unsteady underfoot). The outside staircase would be impossible to negotiate if you are carrying anything because of the way the door opens. Therefore, you use the door that opens directly from the courtyard into the lower bedroom, and then edge your way around the bed with whatever you are carrying and then up a steep curving staircase to the kitchen level. It is clear from the pictures that the upstairs sleeping space is a loft - i.e. no complete walls and, therefore, no door. The surprise was that the downstairs bedroom also has incomplete walls and no door - which resulted, for us, in a real problem since one of us snores which is why we always rent two bedrooms! Some of the floors are glass - so not only is there not privacy of sound, there is also limited visual privacy. The building is in the courtyard of a larger building, so it is a bit of a fishbowl in general. For some reason, a couple of crucial curtains have been removed - you can see the curtain rods - so you need to be careful. There is a motion detector light in the courtyard - so each time a resident goes there to dump trash very bright lights go on which illuminate the entire house because of the missing curtains.

A couple of minor points: we had a different experience with the owner than other reviewers have mentioned - we never actually met her, and found her e-mails snippy and minimally helpful - perhaps a language issue. ? There is no freezer - no big deal but good to know ahead of time - and indeed the website doesn't mention a freezer but we assumed. There were some minor maintenance issues that the owner clearly had no intention of addressing until after we left. The website also mentions a bottle of champagne?!

So - we would not rent this property again. But - if you are more tolerant of lack of privacy than we are, the location, the space, and the quiet are a worth it.

Wonderful home for family of 4

  • 5 of 5

I must say, we were very pleased with the place. I have a family of 4 (children ages 10 & 11) and this home was just what we were looking for. It was very well laid out, in a very nice, safe part of the city.

It was within walking distance of the Metro (about 5 minutes) and there were plenty of places to shop for groceries, fruits, bakeries right outside the door.

The home was spacious, and the key for my wife and I was the fact there were 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The downstairs bathroom is a little small, but perfect for the 2 children.

The kitchen was well stocked. Washing machine worked great.

The stairs are a little tricky and I could see them being an issue for small children.

The only recommendation I would make is the addition of a clock in the main living area or kitchen.

We will stay here again for our next trip to Paris without hesitation.

Great space in a GREAT place!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Paris, and I wanted to be able to get around the city easily. My partner and a friend stayed here for almost 2 weeks, this is a great place for up to 4 people, the only downside is there is a lot of steps. Super close to a supermarket, the trains, great dining, and coffee shops. Marie was very easy to deal with, and our stay was outstanding. When I come back to Paris, we would stay here again.

Paris St. Augustine-Malesherbes

  • 4 of 5

Very well appointed apartment, 4 flight of interior stairs not for the old or very young. Nice area with all the shops and stores you could want. Owner and cleaners very pleasant. Quiet building and neighbors were nice and helpful for English speakers. Nice kitchen and bathrooms

Surprising gem hidden in a quiet courtyard by a busy street.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 11 days with a couple of friends at 81 Malesherbes at the end of September 2016. The home is tastefully decorated and clean and very functional. The downstairs bedroom and bath are quite small, but the bed is big and comfortable for two and there is lots of storage. Kitchen has everything you might need to cook and eat, although we only had breakfast ( from the boulangerie around the corner) at home. The washer dryer worked well, the freezer not so much, so we ate the ice cream quickly. The bus stop is right outside the front door and it takes you all the way over to the left bank. Grocery store visible from the front door, cafes and brasseries everywhere, pharmacies on both sides of the street...As soon as we have the opportunity we would like to return. I have recommended the place to friends and have forwarded the vrbo site to my dermatologist who has yet to visit Paris.
