“Wonderful location and very gracious host”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed for 8 days at the apartment. We were met by Martinn who not only provided enough food for our dinner that night but for a few days afterwards but also provided us with all the information that we needed to make our stay as wonderful as it could be. The apartment is great for 2 people and had everything that we needed. It is like a quiet oasis right in the centre of Paris. We will stay again next time we are in Paris.

“Perfect Location, Marvelous Hostess!”
Reviewed 26 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

You won't find a more centrally located apartment for the best-of attractions and restaurants. We were thrilled about being able to walk to just about everything. Within two blocks are all the shops and markets you need, the best cocktail bar in Paris (Mabel), a wonderful massage parlor (Ban Thai - highly recommend to help with jet lag!), restaurants, and a very helpful hostess. We did a bit of cooking during our Christmas stay, and the apartment is very well stocked. Our hostess checked in on us and was more helpful than I'd ever imagine. The building is an ex convent and it's currently getting a slight remodel, not that it needs it. We thought everything was gorgeous! It's a quiet building with respectful neighbors. It suited our needs perfectly!

Bonjour Angela,
Thank you for taking time to write this as you are into a family reunion in UK. I guess you had a nice flight from Paris. Thanks for the praise, for the tips on local addresses : the Thai spa is really cool, relaxing, Have tried it but I did not know about the cocktail bar. Interesting tip for future guests. Don't forget the link for a nice "egg shell" when you have time... yes the building was a convent ... a couple of centuries ago :-) ; it 's really historic and of course needs some regular maintenance as all "old" things ... Soon it will get back to its XVII and XVIIIth centuries magnificence. Will post new photos. It has been a pleasure to get to know you, your energy, your positive attitude, your help, your kindness. Wish you the best for 2016 and hope to stay tuned before your next visit. Don't forget that you or your friends booking directly on your behalf will receive a special "pampering". A bient�t et bonne ann�e Martinn

“Home away from Home”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A lovely ground floor apartment close to the Metro. Safe location with security access to the apartment. Includes bedroom with adjoining bathroom, toilet and laundry. Separate combined Kitchen, Lounge and Dining room. Kitchen has everything you could imagine. TV in the lounge and Free Wi-Fi Internet. The owner, Martine is very obliging and has lots of helpful information for tourists. Martine took us on a walking tour of the 'covered passages' which was made interesting with her local knowledge. I can fully recommend this apartment for a short stay in Paris.

Bonjour Alan,
thanks for this. Well it took some time, but it was worth waiting :-)
It also means that after 5 months, you still have fond memories of Paris, my apartment and my services. I know you travel quite a lot; so praise from you is something to cherish. I hope your other trips went well and that you are planning other ones. YOU and your friends will always be welcome to discover more. Take great care of yourself. Martinn

“A wonder oasis in busy Paris”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This apartment is behind a heavy door leading into a quiet leafy courtyard the apartment is on the ground floor no climbing stairs with suitcases. Martinn was there to greet us to explain all the features including a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer a kitchen equipped with every electrical appliance you could possible need also a huge variety of pans and dishes to cook up a wonderful meal. On top of that Marinn has prepared a delicious 3 course evening meal ready for you including a bottle of wine, there is more in the fridge your morning breakfast is waiting, how good is that! The local shops stock wonderful foods and reasonably priced wine, great boulangeries with mouth watering pastries. Martinn will give you a list of really good restaurants and a map of food streets and Historic buildings within easy walking distance. Martinn offers a wonderful experience by cooking you an evening meal at her house which is absolutely 5 star. We have been to Paris several times staying in Hotels but this apartment is just like having your own home to go to after a busy day. Martinn is a wonderful hostess and made our Paris holiday a wonderful experience

Bonjour Janet and Colin, thank you so much for such an extensive and praising review. It was such a pleasure to share with you as you have been wonderful guests from A to Z. All along these months before you actually settled in, you have exchanged swiftly, answering my questions, sending thoughtful words after the January events. While here, you were always appreciative and communicative as much as your tablet allowed. Now I love cooking first meals for my guests to easier their arrival, I do not invite everyone around the table .... Glad you enjoyed. My son and his Australian friend enjoyed meeting you as well...Hope to see you again before too long.

“Perfect accommodation in perfect location.”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

booking this apartment was a breeze and communication with Martinn was excellent leading up to our arrival in Paris. She was very prompt in replying and everything we needed to know about the apartment was provided.

The apartment is small, but suited our needs and is situated in a great part of the 2nd arrondissement, close to everything allowing you to walk to most things. There are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets close by (like within 50 metres) and it was nice and quiet. Everything you could need is provided in the apartment.

Martinn was the perfect manager, giving every bit of information you could need on the apartment and the area. There is plenty of reading material in the apartment for shopping, touring and anything else. Lots of maps and novels as well.

One thing that is worth mentioning is the effort that Martinn goes to in making you feel welcome. As part of her deal, she provides a 3 course meal and a bottle of wine on the day of your arrival and provides plenty of provisions for breakfast the next day. All you have to do is heat up the meal....and it is delicious. A very nice touch.

We would have no hesitation in staying here again and highly recommend it.

Dearest guests, thank you so much for your kindest comments. I am really touched by your words, your attentions, your gift from your country. I do love to exchange and help my guests, I do not count my time as much as they need some piece of advice and my health allows. My best reward is a review like yours. Thank you for taking great care of the apartment. I hope we'll have the opportunity to meet again, I'd be happy to give you more next time. For the time being enjoy Dordogne and Pau and stay in touch. Friendly regards, Martinn
