    The apt in Paris is in a perfect location, 5 minutes from St Michel fountain. There were 3 of us and we arrived at Gare du Nord just as all the taxi drivers went on strike. We called Stephen to see what we should do and he said to wait there, that he would come and meet us. We ended up taking the metro and Stephen helped us carry our bags up and down the steps of the metro. He was incredible. We cannot say enough good things about him. And the apartment is lovely as well. You will not be disappointed! 25 June 2015 - 19:57:10

    We were a family of five and even though the apartment was not that big it was comfy and worked perfectly fine. Steven was an asset and helped us in everything we needed during our stay always making us feel we were not alone. Location was PERFECT, close enough to everything and far enough from the crowd and noise. It is exactly how is described in the web page. Will definitely booked it again if we ever go back to Paris. 28 June 2015 - 20:39:43

    Great location and wonderful apartment! It was over 100 when we were in Paris, yet the apartment stayed cool. We were a family of four and the apartment arrangements were perfect for us. 07 July 2015 - 18:21:39

    We were a family of 4 and this apartment was ideal. The loft was great fun for the kids to sleep in and the master bedroom had a heavenly, huge bed. The living room is spacious, beautifully decorated and the whole place remained cool even though it was blazing hot outside. I had initial reservations about being on the ground floor but the building was very secure and being on the ground floor made it really easy to pop in and out. The street is quiet and peaceful yet only steps from great restaurants, shopping and plenty of action. We walked to Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Pantheon, Jardin de Luxembourg and other sights easily. The reception we got from Steven was exceptional. We've stayed in a lot of places and NEVER had such a thorough walk-through. He had some great suggestions on one-of-a-kind restaurants and sites (the Paris flea market was a huge hit). He went above and beyond. The day we left for the UK, we got turned back from Calais due to striking ferry workers who closed the channel tunnel. Even though we had checked out, Steven tried to find us last minute alternate accommodation at the height of the season. I would highly recommend this lovely property and hope to return again. 12 July 2015 - 22:24:46

    Our whole experience with renting this apartment was a pleasure from start to finish! Jean Francois (Jeff) was really friendly and helpful to deal with, payment using VRBO website is a breeze and Steven who met us at the apartment was great (for us it was particularly nice to be met by a fellow Kiwi). The apartment itself was perfect for us (family of 4 with kids aged 8 and 11), the kids loved the sleeping loft, and we loved the huge, super comfy bed in the bedroom! The apartment is really well equipped, and little touches like providing both clothes and dish washing liquid, tea, coffee and even some bottled water and juice was much appreciated. Location was brilliant: really easy to get to on the metro (direct from Gare du Nord was great for us as arrived on the Eurostar), and a 1 min walk from the metro station in St Michel. The apartment is on a quiet little street but at end of the street is the bustling area of St Michel which is full of cafes etc. We would highly recommend this apartment, and stay again if the chance arises!! 13 July 2015 - 14:32:37

    The apartment was perfectly located on a quiet street, yet in the middle of an area with tons of restaurants, shopping and easy access to several metro stops. The apartment was perfect for our family of four - our kids, ages 9 and 11 loved the sleeping loft. It was very clean and well-equipped with plenty of towels, cooking utensils, dishwasher, washer/dryer, guide books and maps. It was a pleasure dealing with both Jeff and Steven. Steven gave us an incredibly thorough introduction to the apartment and was super helpful. Our flight leaving from Paris wasn't until 5:00 pm and he was kind enough to allow us to leave our bags in the apartment after the check out time which was a huge help - he even called us a cab to the airport! We highly recommend this apartment and would love to have the chance to stay again!! 02 August 2015 - 12:24:35

    I just returned from spending a week at Chez Jeff and could not be happier that I chose to stay in this wonderful apartment near the Seine. Jeff and his representative, Steven, were so helpful from start to finish. They are both friendly, efficient and attentive. The apartment itself is convenient, well equipped, comfortable, safe and quite charming! I was traveling with my two sons (19 & 21), who were happy with the loft sleeping area while I was delighted to fall into the very comfortable king sized bed at the end of the day. The living area and kitchen had all we needed to be comfortable. We also appreciated the wifi and telephone provided in the apartment. Paris is incredibly walkable and we were within walking distance of almost all sights that were on our list. There were two or three Metro stops within a couple of blocks if we needed to travel further. My older son stayed in Paris to study and on the last day he checked into the hotel that had been arranged by his college. Sitting in the lobby of the hotel, I was reminded how grateful I am to VRBO and the wonderful property owners from all over the world who share their homes with travelers - we are very lucky to have this opportunity. Thank you, Jean Francois and Steven! 24 August 2015 - 12:57:03

    We had a fantastic stay in this Paris apartment. It really is in a perfect location, near Notre Dame, in a bustling neighborhood of cafs, steps from the Metro, with a grocery store & bakery just a few minutes walk away. Yet the apartment is QUIET, on a little side street. We traveled with our 3 preteen/teen kids and it was so nice to have a full kitchen with dishwasher and the washer/dryer as well. The apartment looks exactly as pictured, and was very comfortable and clean. Jean Francois (Jeff) was great with answering all our questions before we went and Steven, who met us at the apartment was so kind and helpful. If we ever go back to Paris we would definitely stay at this apartment again! 24 August 2015 - 15:56:36

    Couldn't have been a better location for us. On the Left Bank near Place St. Michel. Easy access across the river to the Marais. Metro and RER steps away. Latin Quarter, wonderful little bistros and brassieres right there. Favorite creperie within 100 yards. Easy walk to Left Bank daily markets. Wifi worked almost perfectly. Would do it again. 03 October 2015 - 14:10:34

    The apartment is as described by other renters, quiet, convenient to all the sites, simply but nicely decorated with a large, comfortable, sleep-inducing bed. Of special note is the service that Steven, Jeff's representative in Paris, renders. He came by on our first afternoon to acquaint us with all the workings of the apartment, to recommend restaurants and answer any questions. Most appreciated was his phone call on the morning after the terrorist incident to check on our safety and explain the emergency procedures put into place throughout the city. You can't go wrong renting this apartment from Jeff and Steven. 27 November 2015 - 11:55:25

    excellent apartment in a superb location, close to transport, restaurants and shopping. Very safe neighbourhood and security building.Apartment is as described, appliances were all good, bedding was extremely comfortable, wi-fi was excellent, tv is small with only a couple of english news channels, so laptops got a workout. Jeff was a pleasure to deal with organising the booking. I think the real gem with this rental is the manager Steven, what a class act. He met us at the apartment and thoroughly ran thru everything, including the fantastic welcome book with restaurant, shopping recommendations etc.He mentioned several times, to call him if we had any problems, and we didn't but he still called to check how things were going, really fantastic. As mentioned in other reviews, the bathroom is only accesssed thru the bedroom, so its best suited for families. We will definately book this flat for any future Paris trips, we loved it. Thank you again Steven 01 February 2016 - 07:23:12

    We stayed with two parents and twin 6 year old daughters. We adored this place and will try to stay here again, when we return. The location was exactly what I was hoping for -- steps down a side street from Place St. Andre-des-Arts and Place St. Michel, which puts you right near the Seine, the RER/Metro stops, a variety of restaurants, bakeries, and shops, plenty of banks, a Monoprix supermarket and a good big pharmacy both on Blvd St Michel. And yet, the side street was incredibly quiet, and the courtyard off the side street quieter still. The apartment was plenty spacious -- the bunk beds over the kitchen were charming (though duck if you're an adult trying to stand there!), generous living space and bedroom, bathroom with toilet in the suite, and a small supply closet with a safe. There's no way you'd get that much space for this money at a hotel in St. Germain or the Latin Quarter! Outfitting was excellent -- the washer/dryer was used every day, and enabled us to pack a smaller amount of clothes for a longer stay. Dishwasher was only used once (we ate out most of the time), and isn't big enough for the wine glasses. Coffee options include a drip coffee maker, and a French press plus electric kettle. We would have used an espresso machine, had it been there as an option. Beds were comfortable and clean, and well appointed. Bathroom had plenty of hot water pressure, good wand shower, and plenty of clean towels. TV was functional (we didn't use it), and connected to a good functioning high-speed WiFi internet connection. And Steven, the apartment manager in Paris, was great. He is a native English speaker, highly responsive (our cell phones didn't work, and he responded to a VRBO message from CDG airport within minutes), provides a very useful intro to the neighborhood, and arranged a cab for us to catch our early Sunday morning flight out. It's a little slice of heaven, right smack in the middle of Paris. We'd love to come back! 25 April 2016 - 12:51:27

    We couldn't have asked for a more ideal, idyllic location. Read through the reviews previous to mine: every one is spot on. Comfort, quiet, secure. Our whole experience ~ from emailing the owner, to booking the flat, to our arrival and meeting Steven ~ was truly wonderful. After 10 days, we felt like locals and were welcomed when we returned to favorite bars or restaurants. Five stars aren't enough. You need to stay here! 29 May 2016 - 14:43:04

    This flat is Perfect in Every Way! We arrived late into Paris and when we arrived at the flat Steven was waiting outside the door to greet us and was more than accommodating! He showed us every detail of the home along with a perfect information book that has been put together to provide you awesome places to eat, visit, and have a drink to relax! We are a family of 5, children ages 17, 12, & 8 and it was perfect for us. The flat is so chic and tastefully decorated and very clean! The master bed is unbelievably comfortable!! LOVED IT after a day of walking the streets of Paris. The 2 younger children enjoyed their escape upstairs while our oldest had enough room downstairs to stretch out on the pull-out sofa and use the wifi! You are honestly in the heart of Paris and have access to EVERYTHING! The St. Germain area of Paris is not only beautiful but has a ton of options for anything you are looking for! Our stay in Paris was perfect - we cannot wait to return and WILL only stay here! Thank you Jeff and Steven for the stay in your beautiful home and we cannot wait to return! 27 November 2016 - 18:15:13

    We stayed here a week and found the apartment very comfortable and ideally located for the four of us. In spite of being in the middle of the city, it has zero traffic noise. Restaurants, transportation, walking around, ambiance, etc are all five stars. Steven, our greeter, met us at the location and did an excellent job stepping us through all the ins and outs of the apartment. The WiFi was solid and the washer/dryer unit was clean and functional. The two kids loved the loft area above the kitchen. All the local restaurant recommendations were dead-on fantastic and/or charming. We'd definitely choose to stay here again. The only reasons I cannot give it 5 stars are the following: 1) Be aware that there is major remodelling/construction work going on within or next to the building from 8am to 6pm every day except weekends. While it did not affect our sleep, it wasn't comfortable to remain in the apartment during the day because of the construction noise. 2) The apartment is on the ground floor 15 feet away from the building's garbage bins, and the sound from neighbors dropping off their glass recyclables in the early morning can be jarring and 3) The shower drain is clogged (we had to get around this by taking "military" showers to allow the water to slowly drain). These items did not seriously affect our enjoyment of the apartment, but anyone considering staying here should ask if #1 and #3 remain a concern. 27 November 2017 - 01:08:00

    This apartment was perfect! Fantastic location. Quiet and super clean. Plenty of towels and useful appliances. Steven, the manager, met us at the apartment and patiently explained how everything works and where to buy amazing food. Unfortunately we had to leave early due to family emergency at home. Steven was very helpful in arranging for a taxi to get us to the airport. My husband & I travel frequently and have stayed in many very nice hotels but I have to say that we did not miss any of them during our stay in Jeff's apartment. We loved it! 26 November 2017 - 18:25:00

    Loved the location of this apartment. Its just a few steps from St. Michel, yummy restaurants, and the metro! My 3 young kids loved the loft with the twin beds! The appliances were all functional and having a washer/dryer totally helped! Steven met us at the location and helped us get acquainted with the place. I highly recommend! I would definitely stay here again in the future! 07 January 2018 - 15:22:00

    One block from St. Michel Metro/RER stations. This means you can come in from CDG airport without a transfer. Makes it so easy, no carrying luggage from train to Metro. Ground floor apartment in a courtyard building. Quiet except for garbage cans in courtyard. Construction being done in another apartment was loud but we were out most of day. Near to cafes, restaurants, takeaways, bars. More than enough towels for the four of us. Plenty of paper goods and even spices, oil, vinegar, coffee filters and coffee I assumed was left by previous renters. How thoughtful!! All other apartments I've rented have had completely empty cupboards. Maeva met us and was very helpful. Jeff, the owner, worked with me regarding fragrance issues (I have allergies)and was very helpful when the VRBO website was incorrectly charging our second payment. Don't hesitate to stay here. We will return when in Paris! 26 December 2017 - 22:26:00

    Will definitely book again. Very clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. Location could not be better. Perfect for a sisters get away! Only suggestion would be some sort of handhold to help get in and out of shower for those of us at a certain age! Sink was only thing to brace yourself on and that is not ideal for many reasons. I would highly recommend this apartment. 21 January 2018 - 11:15:00

    We loved our stay. The location is great and was very walkable. The street is quiet and close to lots of restaurants, shops and bars. It is a quick walk to Notre Dame, The Louvre and St. Germaine shopping. The apartment has everything we needed and Steven gave us a great overview when he met us. We would stay here again the next time we are in Paris! 28 January 2018 - 11:47:00
