What Past Guests Are Saying
We absolutely loved this apartment, which was recommended to us by dear friends who had stayed there previously. First of all, the owner is very gracious and responsive. The apartment itself is perfectly situated in the Marais, which now is "our" area of Paris. It was immaculate and thoughtfully designed to contain everything we needed. Having such a lovely place to stay was essential to having the best time ever in Paris.

Katherine, you were a pleasure to correspond with and delighted you enjoyed yourself.
Great apartment excellent location
Having stayed in the Marais area several times over the years this apartment was the best we've stayed in.Close to cafes,restaurants and the market and only a 20 minute walk or so to the Seine.The elevator and washing machine made life easier after a few weeks or so roaming about.
We were met right on time at the apartment and shown everything we needed to know and quickly settled in for a great week in Paris. Thanks Yvonne loved the apartment.

Thank you Mark, delighted you enjoyed yourselves.

We liked the apartment, great location, and all modern amenities. Perfect for a short stay in Paris
Nicely decorated one bedroom apartment in a good location. Unfortunately we were there in one of the hottest summers that Paris has had. Yvonne, the owner was very accommodating. There was a fan in the living room, but not the bedroom. We bought one for the bedroom and she refunded the money to us. The place would be perfect any other time of the year, or with air conditioning added.
Quiet, Clean with nice location
My nephew and I had an amazing time in Paris. The aprtment was the perfect size for the 2 of us. Loation near the Republic Metro and within walking disctance of just about everything was great. Monoprix grocery right up the street as well as a fantastic bakery. Typically pull out couches are not the best when it comes to sleeping (this one is no exception) but it was more comfortable just sleeping on the couch. Everything was clean. Remember to check the basic supplies already there before shopping to avoid duplication. Loved it would definitely stay here again.

Glad you enjoyed your stay Kik!
Perfect place to relax after a day exploring!
I stayed here for a week in January with a friend and we loved every minute of it! The apartment is in a fabulous complex and the neighbours were delightful. We had everything we could possibly want in the apartment and enough room to keep two people very happy. We enjoyed coming back to our Marais apartment every evening and relaxing in complete comfort! It was so simple to organise with Yvonne. We will be recommending this to everyone we know who are going to Paris.
Response from Yvonne P. - 01/27/2013
Delighted you enjoyed yourself and I know exactly how tiring a day exploring can be!
Perfect place to stay in Paris
Everything was perfect! The appartment was clean, comfortable and fully equiped!!We felt like home, nothing was missing! We would definetely recommend it!! Joan was very kind and explained us everything we needed!!
Response from Yvonne P. - 01/22/2013
Delighted to hear that Lili!
We loved our time in your Marais apartment- great location, close to metro and supermarket and great neighborhood - so much to see and do. Loved the old hotels, the shopping, restaurants and filafels. Enjoyed the apartment compex experience, other tenants were very polite and helpful.
The apartment itself was stylish and although compact had everything we needed. The only issue came from our 15 year old who was expecting a better stocked pantry! It was pretty bare on our arrival.
We would def come again and recommend to our friends.
A wonderful week in Paris
We stayed in Yvonne's apartment from 4th October to 12th October. It was perfect for us. Convenient - near the Temple metro station. Well-equipped for us to prepare meals. Comfortable. Very quiet for sleeping. Seemingly quite secure because of the 2 levels of key-code security doors protecting access at night. And the French neighbours to Yvonne's unit were very friendly.
Also the representative of the property manager met us on time on our arrival - and returned at the agreed time of our departure, so we could catch our plane. The property manager representative was polite, courteous and helpful - and returned our security deposit on our departure without issue.
Our daughter came over from Ireland to visit us for 4 days, and extra bed-clothes were provided at 20 euros per night. The extra bed is achieved with the lounge folding out into a comfortable bed.
So in summary, Yvonne's apartment lived up to our expectations - and we would be happy to stay here again, if we return to Paris.
A romantic, relaxing oasis in the centre of Paris!
My husband and I spent seven nights in Chic Marais apartment. Our check in and out was faultless, and Joan provided us with helpful information to make our stay comfortable and stress free. The apartment provided all the comforts of home and allowed us to eat in. The week we arrived was extremely hot, 38 degrees Celsius, so air conditioning would have made our stay more comfortable. The location was excellent and was in walking distance to Notre Dame Cathedral and Place de Voges. Shopping was excellent and great restaurants close by. I would highly recommend this apartment and look forward to returning.

Fabulous stay in Paris
Thankyou Yvonne, our stay in your apartment was perfect, a great location close to metros and all the attractions but in a non touristy area that makes you feel like a local. Lots of lovely restaurants nearby and a lovely park across the street. The apartment was modern and clean with excellent amenities and everything you could need, but in a classic French building complete with red geranium window boxes- just perfect. From the time of booking to arriving all details and correspondence was perfect and easy. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this apartment to my friends.

Thank you Michelle and Peter for your very kind words. Hope you got back to Australia safely.

Spent 6 nights in the apartment and it was absolutely perfect. Best location for transport and access to all of Paris's sights using, trains, buses and of course,Velib bikes. We rode around during the day and night and felt completely safe. Facilities in the apartment are excellent and it is very easy to cook up your own Parisian delights. Monprix super market is just 100m away and great for all your supplies and Wine!!.
Great restaurants, Bistros and cafes abound and it is so easy to dine out cheaply with good food. Try Cafe Musee on Rue de Turenne, bit of a walk but worth it! A picnic in the park opposite, watching the locals is also a great way to dine.
Booking, arrival and check out was a breeze and very organised.
This apartment is a great base for the best time in Paris.

A Week in Paris
My boyfriend and I spent five nights in the apartment in June of this year. It was a wonderful base from which to explore Paris - right in the centre of the Marais with parks, cafes, shops and one of the oldest food markets in Paris right outside the door. The apartment itself was lovely, with a modern kitchen and bathroom, comfortable bed and cute sitting area. I loved the window boxes and there were many thoughtful little touches dotted around the place, including books and maps of Paris and some useful kitchen supplies. Perfect for a romantic week away, living the Parisian dream.
Response from Yvonne P. - 08/14/2012
Hi Maria, You're the first to comment on the window boxes! I really love them myself! Delighted you had a good time. Yvonne
Couldn't have hoped for a better place!
The apartment profile states this is a "Home away from home" and believe me,they aren't kidding! The moment we walked into this apartment we felt welcomed and perfectly at home. Usually, the first thing we do upon arriving at our destination (especially if we are using an apartment) is to buy some household provisions but the owners had so thoughtfully provided everything we needed (including sugar, coffee, jam, butter and so many other treats) we only needed milk that first day!
The lovely apartment is situated in the ever-chic, ever-fashionable Marais district and many of the big Paris attractions are within walking distance. The neighbourhood abounds with lovely cafes and restaurants, we were spoiled for choice.
The apartment has been lovingly cared for...it's very bright and clean and the amenities seem quite new. My 16-year old daughter loved that there was an iPod dock! The bed is comfortable and the linen was adequate and of good quality. Because the apt.is part of a typical Parisian courtyard where you can hear neighbours talking and the smells of their cooking, I felt like a regular Parisian...and absolutely cherished the experience!
We had a wonderful time, both in the apartment
and in Paris and will definitely do this again!
p.s. Forgot to mention: booking the apartment,check-in and check-out were a breeze. Thank you Yvonne, Phillipe and Jean.
Wonderful experience in Paris
The apartment was a delight. Bright, well renovated with the charm expected of the Marais.Location is very close to two metro statiions on the edge of the Marais. Great bathroom and very comfortable bed. A simple blanket rather than thick doona would have been good as it was hot at that time. The booking was smooth. Only comment is the payment of a cash bond of 400 euro only. Acceptance of another currency or even a credit card would have been far more convenient. Luckily we were able to use the euro later. The agent turned up right on time and was very helpful. Would definately stay again.

Delighted you enjoyed the apartment. You'll be glad to hear we've taken on board your suggestion re the Security Deposit. We now accept the equivalent in US/Australian/Canadian Dollars or Pounds Sterling.
3rd quarter little gem
We have only been there a week and we look forward to staying there again. It's small but cleverly designed, very neat, comfortable and quiet. The location is great - all the amenities are within walking distance.

My wife and I stayed at this apartment for 3 wonderful weeks. Very well located (close to 3 metro stations and all other services), it is clean, well furnished/equipped (including Hdtv, DVD player, free phone & Internet) and, most important, cosy and very quiet as it is within a lovely courtyard. We were very well taking care off by the leasing manager who was there to greet us and provide us with required information related to all equipments. It was our eleventh trip to Paris. As you can imagine, we've seen a lot of apartments and without hesitation, we would recommend this one to any of our friends.

Thank you Jean-Pierre and Diane. Delighted to hear these comments from a discerning traveller.
April in Paris
Absolutely the best location - N Marais in a fantastic neighbourhood. Quiet at night, safe streets. Great market on Rue de Bretagne, boulangerie, fruits, vegs, and cheeses. Had breakfast/coffee to start the day at Cafe Charlot. Great breakfast 11EU. Happy hour starts at 7pm if you enjoy that and some great food. The park across the street was smelled sweet of spring flowers and lilacs, and everywhere the sound of birds chirping. Clean and peaceful - old and young alike enjoyed the neighbourhood park. Velibe bike station across the street and Metro just a block away. Walked to Notre Dame, Hotel de Ville, BHV, as well as Bastile, Place de Vosges and all the great shopping in Marais - Rue de Veille Temple - 20mins to Notre Dame on foot. Wonderful designer shops in the neighbourhood. Merci store just a few blocks away. Concierge met us at the apt on time and showed us around and how everything worked. Had the door pass numbers emailed before we arrived. Bed is queen and comfortable - great pillows and linens. Wifi, I-pod alarm clock/radio. Wonderful roof top views and fresh air for sleeping. Great kitchen - was able to do light load of laundry mid week. Apt. is as it appears. - good finishes, well maintained, and a great place to come home to at end of long day on foot. It seems larger than 32-34 sq metres. Quiet neighbours - felt like we lived in Paris - so much better than a hotel. The location gave us the 'experience' we were looking for. Would highly recommend to friends. Compared to a hotel where the space is much smaller,it felt like we came 'home' every day. Hated to leave. Great reference book for us to use on how to use washer, how micro/convection oven worked, TV etc.
lovely small apartment..friendly owner and managers.easy to go around...lovely building...close to a great market..and all the area of Marais..and more. We spend a wonderful week. the deco also is simple functional and lovely..I felt home.
What we wanted. Where we wanted.
The apartment provided everything we needed and sought. It is centrally located with convenient access to the Metro; walking distance to food shops, great fashion streets and a local market; close to good restaurants. Bright, quiet and clean; well designed and furnished. We hope to stay there again.
Perfect location, close to - everything that matters! minutes away from trendy botiques and cool coffee shops, a short velo ride away from the pompidou centre, Notre Dame, Champs Elysee etc a compact apartment that provided a comfortable base from which to explore the city. Situated in the inner courtyard of an old apartment block,we felt that the apartment the apartment gave us an authentic experience of Parisienne living; its situation in an inner courtyard offered night -time peace and quiet, and a sense of security which allowed the teenagers to stay in at night if they so wished, and the lift made coming and going easy. All in all, we felt that it offered comfort and flexibility that we were looking for while on holiday with teenagers. A terrific find, and we will certainly be using it again!

Great apartment in central Paris
Apartment is ideally located within walking distance of Metro, or a quick walk will take you to Notre Dame. Lots of nice places to eat close by. Excellent facilities, comfortable and warm - ideally situated if you want to get in the sights and don't want too much travel
