    We had a wonderful time in Paris, and staying in this apartment was one of the reasons. It is a great location, close to every thing and easy to get to and from. The apartment itself was delightful in appearance and had everything we needed. It was warm decor, comfortable furniture and very comfortable bed. ..... and the host was exceptionally helpful. I would highly recommend this and would stay here again when we next come back to Paris. 05 October 2014 - 03:32:23

    This apartment is in a wonderful location - you can walk to just about anywhere! We were here a week and only took the metro twice. The apartment is clean and Cecile was easy to work with. The only slight downside is that if you want to sleep with the windows open, the street noise could be an issue if you're a light sleeper. Steps would not make this accessible to people with disabilities. Would definitely stay here again! 13 October 2014 - 20:34:39

    We stayed in this apartment for a week in October. It is in a perfect location, close to restaurants, bakeries, the Metro, the Seine River, and many attractions. We loved coming home here at the end of sightseeing days. It was nice to prepare our own breakfasts, and sometimes a light supper after a big lunch. The whole arrangement is spacious and comfortable. I had been worried about the stairs before our arrival, but they turned out not to be a problem for me, as they are not too far up. We used drivers that Cecile recommended, and they helped with our luggage. I would definitely return here. 03 November 2014 - 16:07:39

    We stayed for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed Cecile's apartment. Excellent location. Amenities were great, although we never used the kitchen. If staying for a long period, we'd recommend the dry cleaner Cecile suggests, as it takes quite a long time to launder with the washer/dryer combo unit. The stairs are a bit of a challenge for a woman or perhaps the elderly, trying to carry luggage up and down. The stair steps are very narrow in depth and you can easily get thrown off balance when carrying luggage up and down. Once you get into the apartment, you will be more than delighted. Making arrangements with Cecile was easy. Very pleasant to deal with. I would also highly recommend having a car pick you up and deliver you to the airport - worth the cost. We will definitely book with Cecile again upon our return to Paris!!! 04 November 2014 - 03:48:21

    We visited 2 cities in Europe over 15 days. We wanted to stay in neighborhoods and apartments to get a more immersive experience. We stayed at the Marais Delight apartment and chose it for its location and the amenities it offered and it fully delivered on its promise. It served as a good home base for us as we explored neighborhoods. The location was excellent, it is in close proximity to a boulangerie, grocery store, and an amazing choice of restaurants and boutiques. You will feel immersed as soon as you step foot on the street. The area is conducive to walking and exploring. Regarding the apartment, it was tastefully decorated. It felt modern and yet classic. The kitchen was great for preparing light meals, the bathroom was also great with a towel warmer and good water pressure for an older building, and the bedroom was a good size for Paris standards (it certainly beat staying in a small hotel room!). The drawbacks are minor: be aware that there is no elevator in the unit (it's a 3rd floor walk up) but it is part of the charm; also there is a washer/dryer which is amazing but it does take a while to service your laundry with the 15 days of travel that we did, it was necessary to do some laundry. As far as the host, Cecile, she was amazing and thought of everything. The pre-trip communication was good. She responds quickly (accounting for our time difference). She explained all the nuances regarding foreign internet transactions (call your bank if you are using a credit card as payment for the apartment). She works with an English speaking driver and offers this as a service. This was a luxury that was worth it as they helped us with our bags to and from the apartment. She had a very handy binder that was a good reference tool for the apartment as well. We gladly recommend this apartment and when we return to Paris, will certainly go back to Cecile and her properties! 23 November 2014 - 19:58:06
  6. This is a Paris apartment in a building and area with character and everything nearby. It makes a very good central location for a short stay when you are trying to pack a lot in. The apartment was nice to come back to at the end of the day and the beds were comfortable. 25 November 2014 - 14:28:52

    The Marais Delight was ideally located. We loved being in the Marais district and being able to eat at cute, small restaurants and shop at lovely boutiques. Also, the nearest metro stop was only a few minute walk away. We walked to the Louvre and Notre Dame easily. We used the kitchen for making dinner one night. It is a bit small but served our needs just fine. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms and bathroom were very clean when we arrived. Everything was arranged very smoothly and there were no issues during our stay. I definitely recommend staying here and would want to stay here again if I travel to Paris again in the future. 13 December 2014 - 16:20:28

    This was actually our first experience with renting a property, and it was a great one. I'm not usually one who likes staying in other people's places, as I much prefer the cleanliness and anonymity of a hotel room; however, this was absolutely lovely. It is exactly how it looks in the photos. Cozy but roomy at the same time. Enough charm to be comfortable, but not so much to feel cluttered and used. As a family of 4, we were originally looking for a 2 bedroom but booked late. However, this proved fine for us, as my 2 tweens slept comfortably in the pullout sofa downstairs. The location is perfect (can be a bit noisy at night, but putting the fan or a/c on helped diffuse the sound and also helped optimize the temperature, even in the colder weather). Lots to walk to and quick walk to the Metro. If you haven't stayed in The Marais before, you've missed out! It's the best. The stairs up the apartment are very narrow, but that is typical of older Paris buildings. Overall, a lovely place to stay. It felt like home by the end of our trip. 15 April 2015 - 04:34:29

    Pros: Great location for access to marais, seine, latin quarter -- all walking distance. Minimal traffic so noise is not an issue. pictures and amenities exactly as stated -- actually everything is cleaner and nicer than in pics! celine (agent) was attentive and answered emails immediately. would definitely return! Cons: the walls are a bit thin so could hear neighbors on occasion. but since in paris to hang out in apartment all day, this wasnt an issue. also, the ceilings are a bit low, as in pictures, which creates somewhat of a darker environment. 30 April 2015 - 02:25:38

    This was our first trip to Paris and we really wanted to get an authentic feel for the city. The Marias Delight was exactly what we were looking for. The apt. was well-appointed and mirrored the pictures on line beautifully. The location was ideal for sight-seeing and Cecile was an excellent resource for our stay. Hope to return and stay longer next time! 06 May 2015 - 00:33:59

    My husband and I rented this lovely apartment for a week at the end of May. The location is great - easy walk to Siene, Notre Dame, Louvre, and many other sights, as well as the Hotel De Ville metro stop. The street the apartment is on has a true neighborhood feel - apartments, shops, bistros, etc. we enjoyed having the windows open and listening to the sounds of the neighborhood but with the windows closed all was quiet. Cecile was very responsive both in the booking process and during our stay. When we are back in Paris, we will call on her again!! 11 June 2015 - 11:42:46

    I have stayed in this apartment once before. It is very comfortable. I like that the bedroom is upstairs. After enjoying our days out and about it Paris, it was lovely to come home to the hugh windows opening to a beautiful street, the very comfortable Living Room. We had our breakfast and went over our purchases at the dining table, which was our spot to spend time going over our days. A simple table became filled with lovely memories. The location is perfect. I find it to be the best location in Paris. So close to St Paul metro and Hotel de Ville metro. You have to like stairs, it is 3 floors up and the bedroom is upstairs. The corner bakery was perfect for coffee. The famous Tea Shop is up the street. The corner cafe is great for dinners and the best Pizza is at San Antonio across the street! 10 September 2015 - 16:06:10

    My wife and I have stayed in Le Mariais in september for a week for the last 12 years. After trying different places we found Cecille's lovely apartment and booked it. When we arrived it was exactly as shown in the photos, very cute and perfectly clean and neat. Its great having the separate bedroom and bathroom upstairs. This area in Paris is so close to everything and really gives you a perfect impression of the 'real Paris'.. there are restaurants everywhere and its virtually surrounded by Paris's sites and amazing places to see. Highly recommend this property. 05 October 2015 - 19:13:16

    We loved this apartment! It is very well appointed and well taken care of. The bed was incredibly comfortable and it was nice having an ensuite bathroom with a tub. Lots of hot water and great water pressure. It is in a perfect location, close to many restaurants and bars. This is our third time staying at one of Cecile's apartments and she is very easy to deal with. Her apartments are beautifully maintained and exactly as advertised. We can't wait to come back again. 22 November 2015 - 18:47:18

    This is a great property that really is close to everything. We spent a weekend in Paris as part of our honeymoon and we were very happy with this place. Location was great. It is located next to a lot of small cafes so there are many options for food. There was a grocery store near by for snacks and supplies. And a lot of good attractions within walking distance. We were able to walk to Notre Dame in 10 minutes or so. Took about 15 or 20 minutes to get to Louvre. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. Even though the street below is very busy, the windows do a great job of blocking out all noise. Bed is comfortable as well. Cecile's recommendations for shopping and places to eat were excellent. I would recommend using Chafik if you are given the option. The stairs to get to the apartment are narrow and take some getting used to. It is probably easier to have him carry your bags up and down the stairs upon arrival and departure. Overall, this place is perfect. I will be back again! 02 June 2016 - 14:09:40

    For our winter stay the apartment was cosy stylish secure and comfortable with all modern amenities. It is centrally located with boulangerie just across the street and many great cafes and interesting shops in the neighbourhood. Guests are very well looked after by Cecile and her driver who are both very professional. 06 January 2017 - 12:04:54

    My husband, two children (ages 10 and 7) and I rented this flat for 4 nights at the end of August. First, Cecile was an absolute pleasure to deal with for the rental. She responds quickly, her English is excellent and she is professional and organized. The apartment was exactly as described and pictured. She had a laminated information booklet ready for us that explained everything we needed to know about the apartment including the washer/dryer and A/C unit in addition to extensive information on transportation, restaurants, things to do, etc. The apartment itself is quite charming. There is a living room, dining room and small kitchen area downstairs and upstairs there is a large bedroom with a king size (or European equivalent) bed and modern, nice bathroom. The apartment is clearly cared for and cleaned in a meticulous fashion. The A/C worked very well as it was quite hot 3 of our 4 nights. The apartment is well located in the Marais. There's a fantastic boulangerie on the corner, a grocery store on the same block and all the wonderful restaurant and retail options that are abundant in this arrondissement. It is easy walking distance to Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter and the metro. In sum, a wonderful experience all around. I would highly recommend this apartment and certainly recommend booking with Cecile. We will definitely rent from her again when we are back. One final recommendation - use Cecile's suggested driver, Chafik. He is excellent and his help was very appreciated with carrying our suitcases up the narrow staircase. 08 September 2015 - 05:26:57

    We loved this apartment for our 3 night stay in Paris. Just what we needed: comfortable, everything we needed, with space to relax, and all stylishly decorated. It's exactly as the pictures depicted - perhaps even a little larger than we thought! Apart from a few very minor niggles, which we've advised the owner, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend. As and when we return, we'd happily stay here again. 07 December 2017 - 16:01:00

    The apartment had everything you could need and was very clean when we checked in. The Marais neighborhood is fantastic for exploring the city and there are several Metro stops nearby. I would definitely recommend this apartment to a couple or small family. The pull out couch bed was very good. 05 January 2018 - 17:45:00

    The apartment is as the pictures show. It is really in a nice / easy location and we were very happy with it. It was about a 5 minute walk to the M1 subway line and from there you could get anywhere. Notre Dame was about an 8 minute walk. One block away there are 5-6 restaurants and if you go 2-3 blocks there are more than 20. The apartment was very clean and the bathroom was quite modern. 11 December 2017 - 07:43:00
