A very warm welcome with EVERYTHING clearly explained. Every comfort you could possibly want has been provided. The cleanliness was of the most impeccable standard--not a crumb, not a spider web, not a stray hair. Everything sparkled, everything smelled wonderful. The view is beyond belief, we spent many hours just looking out the window, especially at night. It is dark and quiet when you want to sleep, and the convenience of having a Farmer's Market and a shopping center on the ground floor goes without saying.
We have been to Paris before. This time we wanted to experience it in a neighborhood, not just the tourist sights. We were not disappointed as this is a friendly and helpful neighborhood. The view for us was more astounding than the picture shows. You can watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle and shimmer every night. You can see from the finance district to the Arc de Triomphe, including Sacre Coeur.
Jacqueline was a dream to work with from the booking process through departure. The apartment was very clean with lots and lots of storage space, more than sufficient number of hangers, a big bathroom, a kitchen with all the basic needs and very comfortable beds. She spent time showing us the apartment, the grocery store under the complex and directing us to McDonalds the first night we arrived.
We traveled with our two young teen granddaughters. They found the sofa bed comfortable as was the queen bed in the bedroom.
We traveled in late July when the temperatures were in the 80s F. The apartment does not have air conditioning, but we found her two large fans totally adequate and we hail from the Pacific Northwest in the US, where anything over 72 degrees is HOT to us.
A big plus was the free international calling. It let the granddaughters call home nightly and talk as long as they desired. We had no issues with the wi-if and there were many guidebooks there if you needed these.
If there was a disappointment, it was the lack of a clothes dryer. There is a clothesline in the bathroom for lightweight items only. Being July, we put the heavier items on hangers and these items were dry overnight. If you were there in the winter it might be more difficult.
Practical information: there is a taxi stand a block away at the Mecure Hotel. We used it because of our physical limitations, but walking to the metro at La Defense would not be an issue for most people. There is a lot to explore in Courbevoie but connecting to Paris for tourism is very easy.
We liked the Boulangerie at the corner of rue de Bezons and rue de Capitaine. Excellent raspberry beignets...The cheese store across the street had yummy cheese and the gentleman at the fish store treated us to marinated escargot.
The pool at the building is a city pool. You can't go in and just sit and watch your kids, even if you offer to pay, you need to be in a swimsuit, or at least that was my understanding, based on my limited understanding of French and their limited English. This was the only place in the neighborhood where communication felt strained. I should have brushed up on my French for this encounter.
We were there for 10 nights, wished it could have been longer and would love to stay here again in the future. Highly recommended!!
We had a wonderful experience and Jackie was so helpful and kind. She was available anytime we called her. The apartment was perfect, close to everything and quiet. We felt safe. There is a convenient small shopping center directly below which includes a grocery store, bakery and several small restaurants. Perfect place to stay while seeing Paris.
I had and excellent stay at Jaqueline's apartment, extremely clean, great views, had everything I needed in there for my stay and Jaqueline was an excellent hostess as nothing was too much trouble. I would highley recommend anyone to stay here
Thank you Jacqueline for this lovely stay in your very comfortable beautiful apartment. My husband and I loved the great view over the city and the La Defense skyline. What a wonderful sunrise over the city of Paris.
We enjoyed the stay. Your apartment is equipped with everything you need. I really enjoyed the cooking before this great view over the city. We are happy to come again.
