'Your comfortable, well-equiped apartment was ideal for us for our 9-day stay in Paris. The location allowed us to walk nearly everywhere in the city and each day we stumbled upon another great find in the neighborhood for a wonderful meal or a café. Despite its location in the heart of the city, the apartment was quiet and provided a wonderful resting place after busy days. We will be happy to recommend the apartment to friends and family.'

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you for a wonderful Parisian experience - what a joy to be able to be here in such a great location! Easy to find everything one could possibly want!

You're going to have to come to California sometime! We so appreciated your apartment and indulged in the movies. Your explanation book was brillant! Great instructions.

We experienced many great things but the ease of living here for 9 days was what made it all the more enjoyable. How lucky to be in such a vibrant city!

Thank you again,

Au Revoir,

Charming, pleasant, convenient

  • 5 of 5

This apartment totally suited our needs. It was within walking distance to many attractions and the metro was also nearby. Two bedrooms with a total of three beds was perfect for our family of four. There was always adequate hot water for our showers. The bathroom had a towel dryer, which was wonderful as we happened to be visiting during an unusually rainy period, making everything slow to dry. The kitchen was small, but functional for preparing small meals. Accessibility to the internet was definitely appreciated. Jean-Pierre was very approachable and friendly. We couldn't have hoped for better accommodations.

When you visit Paris, stay here

  • 5 of 5

A simply perfect place to stay.

This was an excellent base camp for a wonderful vacation week. Great location in the middle of the 6th, central to sights, parks, walks, metro - everything. This wonderful ground floor apartment is on a small but vibrant street. It has everything you need - room to spread out in the living room, functional kitchen and ample bathroom/shower facility. The apartment was as advertised - set up and clean.

And Jean-Pierre is a great host. He was in touch with us before and leading right up to our arrival. He met us on that first day - with water, fruit, and wine! And he saw us off, even helping us get airport transportation. Finally, the security deposit was returned within a few days of our departure.

I will stay here every time I come to Paris - and you should too.

Best location!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from my first (and not last) visit to Paris. The apartment is small by US standards but met all of our needs. The locations is superb and close to everything including some wonderful restaurants. Felt like a true Parisian staying there. Jean Pierre was a joy to work with, very responsive and helpful. Only one suggestion: as four women staying there, the lighting for applying make up was very dim, but other than that, it was fabulous.

Excellent location, great host

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located near the Saint Michel #4 Metro and the RER-B to either airport. This made touring the city extremely convenient. Notre Dame was right across the river. There's no shortage of restaurants but you could go deeper into the Saint Germain area to find spots where locals eat.

The apartment itself is on the ground floor. It was very rainy the entire week, so keep all food put away and sealed up. The heat worked and that was great because Paris had an late April cold spell (we missed the good weather the week before and after).

The best part is the constant communication and friendliness of Jean and his daughter Jessica. We can't thank him enough. I highly recommend them. Merci.

Lovely courtyard flat and wonderful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

A perfect neighborhood--very convenient to many locations and for taxis when walking was too much! Seating area was larger than I expected, kitchen and bathroom were as described, and bedrooms were small but adequate, also as described; beds were more comfortable than in some rentals, and I appreciate that. The owner was extremely helpful in very prompt pre-arrival communication and in fixing a small problem after we arrived. We did have some overhead noise but not enough to keep us from happily staying again at this location. My only suggestion is some more small stools/ tables (like those next to the beds) for holding suitcases or other items. I have a bad back, and the chairs for the dining area were not comfortable for me, but otherwise the is an extremely pleasant and convenient location for enjoying Paris.

Clean, cozy, quite, safe, perfect location and the Barasz family

  • 5 of 5

My adult family (parents with 2 daughters In their 20's) loved the apartment and the location (very central). This is not the Ritz hotel with maid service but it is clean, quite, safe location and has everything you need plus dryer, free movies, and free international phone calls back to USA....and the price is very fair (fast return of my deposit also). I was nervous about booking on VRBO for an overseas apartment but Jean-Pierre was really great to work with. He was genuinely honest and reassuring. When I return to Paris and I will visit again, I will definitely stay here and I will recommend to all my friends. This apartment helped make my families experience perfect. Thank you so much for sharing your apartment.
