    This studio was perfect for my husband and I. It had a simple but well appointed kitchen for cooking in and included a coffee machine, microwave and toaster, a cooktop and small fridge. There was plenty of room in the upper bed to sit up and it never felt cramped. Having the small patio was a plus for air circulation and just sitting outside. A few things to note if you rent this property - the complex's garbage and recycling room is right outside of the window and it can be pretty loud when folks are throwing their bottles and trash away. Plus the property manager, Mrs. P, is ever-present and she startled me a few times when I came out of the restroom and she was right there outside the window. The neighborhood was perfect! Grocery, boutiques, banks, post office and bistros all within a 2 block radius. The gourmet grocer (Epicierie Grand) is well worth a visit to stock up on fresh cheese, meats, wine and snacks. We used the Vaneau Metro stop to get everywhere and it was less than a 5 minute walk. Plus there is a Uber queue station 3 mins away so we never had to wait for one when we needed it. Jean-Pierre was easy to work with, provided very detailed instructions, maps and recommendations, and was proactive when we experienced issues with the washer/dryer. The apartment does not face the street so it was nice and quiet at night. Plus you need a security code to get into the complex so it was very safe and secure. I would recommend this to any single or couple traveling who wants comfort and ease in getting around. We will definitely book again when we visit Paris in the future. Merci beaucoup, Jean-Pierre! 13 April 2017 - 14:49:00

    Jean-Pierre's studio was perfect for the two of us during our week in early May. Abundance of restaurants, cafes and shops at hand. The studio was fully equipped and the patio was an unexpected touch. Checking in and out was the model of efficiency. We'll be back soon. 14 May 2017 - 16:04:00

    The apartment was clean, comfortable, and convenient. Jean-Pierre was welcoming, accessible, and clearly experienced as a host as shown by a notebook he provided which answered any query a guest might have. The flat was fully equipped and included amenities, as well. We enjoyed our stay, and its location allowed us access to a neighborhood and the freedom to explore other enchanting parts of the city both on foot and by Metro. 03 October 2017 - 12:37:00

    This was our first trip to Paris. It is a great place to stay as it is close to many cafes, shopping, and the metro. I also enjoyed it because it isn't in one of the real busy tourist areas. Had a great time and would stay there again. Jean Pierre was very helpful and met us onsite when we arrived. 16 October 2017 - 19:42:00
  7. My husband and I spend a whole month in this apartment and loved every minute of it. We wondered if it would be too small for that long a stay, but we found the layout to be so thoughtfully layed out that we had no problem at all. Jean-Pierre's planning even included n outlet for a small clamp-on light up in the loft bed area. The bed was high enough for us to walk under it and we're tall people. And when we were in the bed, there was plenty of room for us to sit up and read without being close to the ceiling. The bed, by the way, was extremely comfortable and a queen size, making it roomy enough for us. The downstairs fold-out beds, which we used twice, also had extremely comfortable mattresses and provided ample space. We also took advantage of JPs large collection of movies and found ourselves having dinner and a movie, just like we do at home. The apartment was located in the 6th arrondissement on a small, quiet street with loads of shops and food markets. We were in the perfect location and close to two metro stops. Jean-Pierre provided us with a wheeled shopping cart which was ideal for those bigger shopping loads that we needed to do for our stay. The kitchen was big enough and well -equipped enough for us to cook real meals, not just breakfast and snacks. And the bathroom was roomy and had an excellent shower. Jean-Pierre was a wonderful host and landlord. We'd stay in this apartment again in a heartbeat and, in fact, plan to do so asap. Thanks, JP for providing us with the perfect apartment for our month in Paris. 01 June 2010 - 13:35:12

    We had a wonderful stay at Jean Pierre's apartment. The location is excellent, a number of great cafes, a local market, a short walk to the jardin de luxembourg. The apartment itself is small but ideal for a couple or 2 adults and one or two children. It was well maintained, laid out, had all the amenities you could want and a very obliging landlord and building supervisor in Jean Pierre and Mme Petrovic respectively. No hesitation in recommending this property. K 15 July 2010 - 00:05:49

    Devant passer deux semaines a Paris pour raisons professionnelles, je ne voulais pas me retrouver en htel. Par chance j'ai trouve cette petite perle au centre de Paris, pour moins que le prix d'une chambre d'htel dans le mme quartier, et offrant des commodits en rien comparable (lave vaisselle, machine a laver avec sche linge intgr en parfait tat de marche, et tlphone gratuit en direction des US). L'appartement correspond a la description faite, voir mieux (je m'attendais au pire, ceci dit). Situe dans une cours intrieure, il est galement trs TRES calme (peut-etre trop calme pour certains, mais une station velib est juste a cote (25m) - le mtro a 5mn - ce qui permet de rejoindre les points chauds rapidement). Le propritaire a toujours rpondu a mes questions rapidement et toujours avec une grande amabilit, galement ponctuel a la remise des clefs, ainsi que lors de mon dpart. Bref, trs pro. Si je devais renouveler un sjour de longue dure ou mme un week-end, je n'hsiterai pas: Je retournerai a cette adresse. 21 November 2010 - 23:19:04

    Three of us stayed in this apartment for 7 nights in May/June 2011. We found it surprisingly spacious and never felt like we were in each others faces. The neighbourhood is absolute perfection: quiet, safe, lots of shopping and cafes, and easy walking distance to some of the best spots in Paris. (A stroll down to the Seine was about 20-min max, and a walk to St. Germain Blvd takes mere minutes). The patio was a lovely perk. The apartment was well-appointed with what we needed (though we did have to buy toilet paper, as we were only left with half a roll) and the appliances worked reliably. It can get stiflingly hot though, even with the windows open and the fan on full blast, so I would keep this in mind if travelling in the summer. The building caretaker seems a bit nosy; we often found her peering into our window. But really, not a big deal. The owner was very good with email communication prior to our visit, and a mix-up with our arrival time (which saw us waiting outside the apartment for 2.5 hours) was met with gracious apologies and a bottle of wine. And the owner's son arranged our taxi for the ride back home (he was a sweetheart). Overall, I would recommend this apartment. 07 June 2011 - 16:30:41

    We stayed at this apartment for four days in February 2012. The apartment was recommended to us by a friend. It was our first time in Paris and we were very happy with our stay. JP was very nice and accommodating. He arranged a taxi for us to the airport on our way out of town, which was much appreciated. The apartment is simple but quite nice. The best part is the great location. We were able to walk a lot of places but were also close to the metro and found that quite convenient. We appreciated the wireless internet access in the apartment. We would definetely recommend this place! The only suggestion would be to bring your own towels as the ones provided are not the greatest. 18 April 2012 - 21:06:08

    This apt is centrally located to all that Paris has to offer. It is located in a much sought after neighborhood, on a street lined with local boutiques, markets, and restaurants. IWe felt very safe. The apartment is located behind a gated entrance. Jean Pierre will provide a detailed map of everything within several blocks--review this, it is quite handy for grocery shopping, or a quick meal. If you are looking for what it must be like to 'live' in Paris--this is the place. You will find the apartment exactly as described and pictured---well maintained, bright and cheery. And for my small family it was an ideal respite for a three year old that finds a tiny hotel room unbearable. The selection of movies is amazing--with something to offer for everyone's taste. I cannot say enough positive things about this experience--we had a lovely time in Paris at Christmas, in large part to the safety and comfort we experienced in renting the apartment. 08 January 2013 - 20:43:24

    Third visit to Paris, first time staying in Montparnasse. To be honest, this studio surpassed expectations. It was spotless, comfortable, well located, safe, tastefully decorated, a powerful shower and very good value for money. It is well located in terms of proximity to the metro, supermarket, coffee shops and brassieres. Jean-Pierre really couldn't have been nicer, seriously, he had a fall from his mopehead just before he met us and he was still the perfect gentleman. You can't go wrong......perhaps I should be keeping this place a secret!!..Hmmmm 07 April 2013 - 20:12:25

    This is a delayed review, but I felt absolutely compelled to review Jean-Pierre's studio! I never had any desire to travel to Paris, so when my niece picked Paris as her graduation destination gift, I was not so excited...little did I know, I was going to fall inlove so hard!!! Jean-Pierre is ABOVE and BEYOND amazing. The location is a short distance out of city center, but extremely close to two great subway stations that will get you to and from airports and surrounding destinations. The local neighborhood offers a great variety of patiserries, cafes and clothing stores. I LOVED the neighboorhood. We (18 and 35 year old women) walked along the streets, cafes well past mid-night and never once worried about our safety. Thanks Jean-Pierre. I have stayed at many VRBO locations, and never have I received the level of detail and assistance that you offered-from providing detailed and EXCELLENT maps to and from airport, to calling a taxi for us, to tracking our flight to ensure arrival time, you are amazing and well appreciated. Loved the little studio. We cooked, sat on the patio for early dinner listening to the sound of far off chruch bells...I WILL be back, and I will BE staying at your beautiful studio again! 22 September 2013 - 16:28:33

    My boyfriend and I booked the studio last minute and Jean-Pierre (owner) was very accommodating. We had planned to stay for four nights and although the post requested a minimum of 5 nights, we gave it a try since the calendar indicated that the unit was available. He accommodated our request openly. While we were there, we extended our visit for a fifth night without trouble. The studio looks exactly as shown in the pictures. The location cannot be beat. We greatly appreciated the fact that the unit is on the ground floor so no need to climb stairs, particularly since we walked everywhere. Here are some approximate distances in time (leisurely stroll) from the studio: Eiffel Tower (within 15 min), Hotel des Invalides (10 min), Jardin du Luxembourg (12 min), Le Bon March (3 min). Restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, and many boutiques within a minute's walk from the studio. Very safe to walk around at night. The studio is also a couple of minutes from the March Raspail, which is a street market open on Tuesday and Friday, and an organic market on Sunday. We purchased fabulous crepes on Sunday made right in front of our eyes; cheese; cured meats; bread; soup...my mouth is watering just recalling the great spread! A few vendors accepted credit cards but cash would be best. (By the way, there were many ATMs nearby, as well as small supermarkets to purchase toiletries, food, and drinks.) The studio itself was very clean, which was extremely important for me since I am very picky about cleanliness. The owner provided dish detergent for the dishwasher and laundry detergent for the washer, which is also a dryer. The washer/dryer was very helpful since we only packed one carry-on luggage each. The bathroom is new and modern, with a heated towel rack. One bath towel and one hand towel provided per guest. The hairdryer was very powerful, which I was thankful for since I have really long and thick hair. The bed was firm and very comfortable. Upon confirmation, Jean-Pierre sent detailed directions (with map) to the studio. We took the RER and then the metro from CDG. No difficulties finding the apartment. The custodian of the building is a very nice woman who lives in the building. Several Lonely Planet travel books. Free wifi. Jean-Pierre even provided us with a laptop for use. Provided a cheque for security deposit, which was at checkout. We cannot wait to return to Paris and would definitely rent the studio again. Merci beaucoup Jean-Pierre. 03 December 2013 - 03:40:35
