Guestbook comments from the owner

'Had a fantastic week's stay. Apartment beautiful and couldn't be better placed. Haven't bothered with metro as possible to walk everywhere' 'Thanks for a wonderful authentic Parisian experience, wish we could have stayed longer but have had a fantastic action-packed few days' 'Your apartment is charming, so un-touristy and yet close to everything' 'Apartment in fantastic position - Rue Montorgueil is wonderful - impossible to walk through without eating!' 'A perfect location to see Paris, yet also so quiet at night. We felt safe to walk around with the kids, even when it was dark.' 'Thank you so much for a lovely week. We all agreed that if we get the chance to come back to Paris, we wouldn't even look around at accommodations, we would simply contact you'. ' We had the trip of a lifetime, the kids fell in love with the city, we couldn't have had a better visit.' 'This place is fabulous, much better than a hotel, and in a great location to explore.'

Good apartment, great location!

  • 3 of 5

Overall our stay at the apartment was good - we literally just slept and showered there.

There isn't any AC, but there were fans that help cool down the apartment.

The host's were wonderful!

Paris Apartment

  • 4 of 5

It was an exciting walk but a solid walk to the apartment from the train and with luggage. The winding stair case was beautiful but make no mistake it is 7 solid winding levels to the flat. It kept all in shape! We were a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 older teen children. It was a little tight in the "sitting/eating" area but we did not stay put very often! When we arrived the apartment was still being cleaned so the extra towels had not been run in the washing machine nor the dishwasher run. Otherwise the place was clean. There is no soap in the kitchen and no soap or shampoo or toilet paper in the bathroom. We were there in August and the temperatures were very hot. There is no AC but there were fans. It cooled at night and the neighborhood was quiet to keep the windows open at night. There are grocery stores very close by and a wonderful markets on the nearby streets with wine, food, cheese, croissants.

Perfect Paris stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat was perfect for 2 couples, it was clean, well stocked, and cozy. At first we were a little worried about the stairs, we loved them, it was an easy climb and the workmanship was awesome. With Sam's detailed instructions on how to get to the flat, how to get in and what was close, was very helpful. Being close to Montorgeuil Market was a favorite, we tried a new cafe at every meal, ate chocolate and pastries. I would stay again and would recommend this flat to anyone on their way to Paris.

LIVE LIKE A PARISIEN IN PARIS

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights at this apartment in Paris and had a wonderful time.

Being so central, we were able to walk everywhere, Seine and Notre Dame only 20 minutes, Louvre, 15 minutes. The tiny cobbled streets outside the apartment are closed to traffic and full of cafes, bread, cheese and wine shops, and markets.

The apartment is very comfortable, great to enjoy our wine, cheese and bread on, we became very Parisien !!!!! (French people don't get fat, so we joined them !!!!)

Sam, is excellent to deal with, and sent us many friendly emails of assistance before we arrived.

If you want a real experience of Paris, this is it, thanks Sam we will always remember our " Romantic Paris"

2014/15 Christmas and New Years in Paris

  • 5 of 5

For our family of 5, this apartment was just right for our stay! It was exactly as portrayed in the photos on the website (including the 141 stairs which we eventually got used to climbing). Sam is a terrific host who provided us with lots of helpful tips and advice prior to departure from home...most helpful knowing which options were available to get from the airport to the apartment! Unlike a standard hotel room in Canada, this charming apartment allowed us each our own space to sleep in at night and 'decompress' at the end of a long sightseeing day. The kitchen is well enough equipped to make your own coffee and light meals and to keep cold foods on hand. I would recommend stocking up on breakfast and lunch supplies so you can eat your first meal at the apt in the morning and then pack sandwiches for the day...unless you have an unlimited food budget, we found that eating out was very pricey, and we saved that for our dinner time meal and daily snack breaks. My older kids (19 and 20) were keen to explore on their own occasionally, so we requested a second key to the apartment, which Sam delivered to us promptly the next day.

The apt is conveniently located a short distance from the lovely rue Montorgueil, where we found the merchants to be welcoming and obliging to our humorous attempts to speak the french language, which none of us can do very well. The street was beautifully lit and decorated for the Christmas season.

There are several nearby Metro stations: Sentier, Bonne Nouvelle, Chatelet. We all got very competent at navigating through the metro and planning our days of sightseeing. On the streets, however, it is very easy lose your orientation. I suggest paying for a roaming package with data on a smart phone/device; we made good use of live, interactive maps on our journey. That being said, there is such fun and adventure 'getting lost in Paris'. We happened on a few amazing side streets where we found small cafes and shops that you just don't find walking the main roads.

Our list of MUST SEE sights:

- National Museum of Natural History

- Day trip to Chateau Versailles (leave EARLY in the day to beat the lineups)

- Montmartre: walk up the butte to the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur (stunning)

- Stand under the Eiffel Tower at night

- Ride the metro and make a point of getting off at random stops just to see

what you can see! We found the Bazaar at Hotel de Ville this way!

Thanks for your warm hospitality Sam! We will be back some day :)

Quaint apartment walking distance from the Louvre

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for us - our group consisted of three moms and three 10 year old girls. We each took a room and easily shared the bathroom. We were amazed at how big this little apartment felt even with all of us sitting in the living room. The walk upstairs was always a point of discussion and laughs after a long day of touring the city, but we all were able to get up there - we counted 113 steps. We mastered the metro and were able to get everywhere we wanted to go. On the way back to the apartment, we were always able to stop by one of the grocery stores on the way to pick up wine, bread, snacks for the girls, really anything we needed. Loved the guest book with all the helpful info and the guide/tour books available for us on the bookshelf. Thank you Samantha for allowing us to stay in your apartment and making this portion of our trip so simple,

Owner's Response: We love when guests have a fantastic holiday, really enjoy our apartment and its central location and live a true Parisian lifestyle. Thank you for your lovely review. When my four little ones grow I look forward to taking them on a cultural city break just like you did with your daughters and staying in an authentic apartment. We love when our guests return and hope that you may do too. Kind regards, Sam
