This is my beloved apartment, I designed it to ensure everyone a stay in calm, luxury and comfort: Inspired design, mixed walls in bricks, stones and concrete, fireplace, the best kitchen, a so relaxing living area and exotic bedrooms.
1 spacious living room with flat TV screen, surround sound system, fireplace, folding dining table and its 8 chairs.
The fully equipped American kitchen opens onto the living room and is equipped with all your needs. (Cooking utensils, KitchenAid Robot, etc) + Washing machine dryer combo and a dishwasher of course.
The 2 bedrooms have their own bathroom, the main bedroom is equipped with a stylish jacuzzi (many programs, lights, etc)/shower and a queen size bed (160cms) with comfy mattress (we are changing mattress sides every season). Ipod Dock obviously in the bedroom.
The 2nd one, smaller, with a shower only and a doublebed (140cms). Unlike in the past, this bedroom now has a proper door (from Dec 13), each bedroom has its bathroom. The toilet is separated.
3rd french floor, no lift.
1 min walking from Bastille subway (4 main lines from there)
I recommend this property for a couple who is looking for a special moment in Paris, or people who enjoy indulging themselves :)
Free Wifi + Free international calls to more than 100 countries (land line only for all and mobile for US). Complimentary MacBook 17" on request and subject to availability.
Interaction with Guests
I currently live abroad so a gorgeous woman called "France" will take care of your arrival and during your stay.
The Location is simply my favorite in Paris, where I spent 4years and where I will spend my last days: A location where it is easy to feel like a Parisian surrounded by wine shops, bakeries, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, museums, art, architecture and to have access to all others areas of Paris at a glance.
The Subway Stop Bastille is 1 min walking distance from the apartment with 4 different subway lines. Many buses lines, The Paris bus citytour also starts from Bastille.
Smoking at the window only.
Preferably no pets.
I only allow 4 people max to sleep in. The sofas in the living room are not pulling out into a bed and cannot be used to sleep in. No extrabed will be added. Babybed can be added for a small fee. (25 usd)
Had a very nice stay! Apartment is as shown on pictures, it's more a bachelors apt on my opinion as per the layout and decoration. Was received by someone that is in charge of apartment, it wasn't ready but, it was an early arrival..., since it was cold, I was brought over some heaters. I think it needs new linings and towels, they shouldn't cost much and will add value to it, since it crucial on every stay. Also, watch out for the no elevator, since it's a 3 story building. Rest, all good, I will recommend it
Great location and super easy to get anywhere in the neighbourhood. The hot tub and the disco toilet are the best bits! Great and easy to organise even though I was the one messing around with plans really patient and easy going. Cheers
We had a great stay in a fun apartment in a nice part of Paris. I would highly recommend it.
Great apartment! Very well localized in Marais and close to Bastille. Frances was very kind and gave us all the relevant information. If I had the chance I would stay there again.
This is a superb apartment. The photos and layout are only a part of the benefits. Location is the ultimate value of this great space. It is on a small residential side street that is quaint and quiet. Yet, when you walk down the short 1/2 block to the Rue St Antoine, you have everything at your fingertips - from a good health food store, great supermarket, cheese store, desserts, wine store, etc. - and the Metro stop at Saint Paul. You can get anywhere from the Metro - or if you simply keep walking on Rue St Antoine - it becomes Rue De Rivoli which will take you to the Louvre, the Champs, etc. Instead of being in a district made famous by tourists, this area feels like a real neighborhood. Finally, keep in mind that this is a 4th floor walk-up apartment (by American counting 1,2,3,4 as opposed to 3rd by French counting: 0, 1,2,3.) I'm 65 and didn't mind the stairs at all. Also, the 2 1/2 baths is not an American convention either, There is 1 toilet in a closet-like room; and each bedroom has either a shower or jacuzzi. Both bedrooms have sinks too. This configuration was just fine for me and my two 20-something daughters. Enjoy!
The apartment is just great, really nice location in the Marais, near the metro but many places are within walking distance anyway. Good restaurants nearby and a brilliant food market on Sundays. Everything in the apartment worked well, the hot tub was really good and we liked the funky features of the flat, cool lighting, a disco toilet and good shower in the second bedroom. Francis, our host who let us in and showed us round, was very nice, gave us tips about things to do in the area and made us feel welcome during the brief tour of the flat. She was waiting for us near the flat until our (late evening as arranged) arrival which was much appreciated. Would stay again.
What can I say? You have everything a dream needs to have: confortable and Stylish home, cool and stravagant neightborhood, sexy and big hot tub. We enjoyed stay there! Thank you!

I love the concept of Airbnb, I am using the website to host and travel. People dealing with people brings the best of them, it is much better than dealing with companies, regulations and conditions and terms ;)
I thing meeting people is key in life, I will be happy to host you in Paris or Bali and get connected in a way or another.
