Feel right at home in this spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bath, toilet, 1 study, 1 living area with open kitchen & dining table.
The apartment is located in inner-Paris in the 10th arrondisement (view bottom for neighbourhood description). There is so no such thing as the center of Paris or a single downtown area. There are 20 arrondisements of Paris and each has their own city hall, schools, restuarants, cafes, grocery stores etc.
Technically on the map and for administration purposes, the center of Paris is the main City Hall a.k.a Hotel De Ville (as shown on (website hidden) maps) located in the 4th arrondisement. It is a 25 minute walk or 2km away from my place.
In my apartment, enjoy a fully equipped state of the art kitchen with large fridge and freezer, smart dishwasher and convenient washer/dryer. All very environmentally friendly and quiet appliances. Oven, microwave and grill. Induction stove stop that cooks food quickly and efficiently. Tea/water boiler, toaster & nespresso coffee machine. Bring your own favorite blend capsules!
Sink into heaven with a double bed by Simmons that is the same model as W hotel beds for a truly blissful sleep. There is also a convertible sofabed for those that need it.
All towels, pillows, bedsheets supplied free of charge.
A huge walk in shower room with an oversized rain shower head, 6 body jets and 1 removable hand shower for a true spa-like experience. State of the art towel dryer for warm toasty towels each time. Hair dryer provided. Full length mirror.
Apartment is equipped with all necessary cooking items, quality pots & pans, dishes and cutlery. Free wifi, TV with over 100 international channels (BBC, CNN), plus free unlimited international phonecalls. Secured access: security code and interphone.
This is the most trending area of Paris for living, going out & eating. It is a safe & friendly neighbourhood day and night filled with lots of authentic local activity & local prices.
Located close to all amenities, grocery stores, banks and a pharmacy open even on Sundays until evening.
My neighbourhood is known as the Village of Saint-Martin, Marché Saint-Martin being the landmark, and also famously called the theatre district (Théâtre du Splendid, Théâtre de la Renaissance, Théâtre de la Porte-Saint-Martin, Théâtre Comedia and Le Brady), home of 2 of the largest advertising firms in France, an abundant number of restaurants, cafes and brasseries, and our little community of Afro-hair dressers and nail salons nestled between history and our very beautiful city hall. We neighbour the Canal Saint-Martin, the Marais, Republique, and the 9th arrondissement.
There are many museums within walking distance. Musée de L'évantail - a local french favorite with gorgeous construction, Arts&Metier Museum - with their lovely outdoor café terrasse and zen food, opposite local park, great for kids!
You will be spoiled for entertainment choice. Visit the Maison de l'Architecture with it's amusing pebble covered outdoor Restaurant bar café + live music in evenings and sunday brunch (only summers). Hit some of Paris' best Jazz and live acts at the famous 'Morning Live'. Sit down in one of the trendy café bars and 'people watch' the new hip scene that has taken Paris.
A few meters around the corner from the apartment, you can enjoy our cute clean local indoor food market Marché Saint-Martin filled with farm counter eats, award winning chef at Au Comptoir de Brice, Allen's Food Market and more (french, italian, moroccan and delicacy shops), organic foods, the best cheeses, butchers, fresh daily fish selections, flowers and carefully selected fruits & vegetables from around the region. A great place to stock up the fridge with high quality french delicacies to eat or take home for yourself & offer as gifts!
Enjoy many other cute delicacy shops in the area, bakeries, my favorite "can't go wrong with anything" wine shop, and if you miss home, a global food store as well as an English/American food shop are foot steps away.
You will be 10 minutes walking to the Marais, Georges Pompidou Center and 5 minutes from Canal Saint Martin. This is another neighbourhood of great eats, shops and parks or just grab a bottle of wine from our local speciality wine shop by the apartment and seat yourself among the other Parisians on the Canal and take in the city.
Their are many affordable top rated restaurants, cafés, quiet retreats and terasses that ooze local fair and taste buds! You will be given a complimentary area guide of our top rated places for food, drink and entertainment musts in the area.

The cleaning fee is for the washing of bedding & towels only.

To avoid this extra cost, do the minimal and wash up after yourselves.
I try my best to stock the place with essential cleaning products and toilet paper, but it is up to you to purchase the things you need for your stay. Bring your own toiletries

This is not a hotel, it's my home and I trust you will treat it as your own.
This is a really handy spot in an interesting neighbourhood. The apartment is very well appointed and nicely set up - the shower is particularly good. The lack of a lift means that you get pretty fit going up and down the stairs! Everything worked as described and there was lots of useful information about Paris left by the owner.
El apartamento es confortable y amplio. Dispone de todo lo necesario para una estancia agradable. La ubicacion es perfecta tanto si te gusta caminar como usar el metro. El barrio tiene de todo y me ha parecido muy vivo.
As advertised. Great location in the heart of Paris. If you're young you can walk everywhere. Kitchen is also fully stocked, which is a plus if you're into cooking for yourself.
Apartment was clean, and the bathroom is great.
The apartment was beautiful! Such a lovely place and very easy to get anywhere by metro or RER. Paula checked us in and gave us a great tour of the apartment. The Nespresso machine was a wonderful way to start the morning with delicious pastries from the nearby bakery. The mattress was VERY comfortable. We would definitely stay again!
My husband and I spent 10 days in Matt's apartment in St. Martin and it was by far the best travel experience of our lives so far. We found the apartment easily and were able to get in contact with Paula right away upon our arrival. The photos of Matt's apartment are very true-to-life; there were no surprises. It felt very homey and comfortable, was usually very quiet, and offered a perfect retreat after a day of sight-seeing. The neighborhood that Matt's apartment is in is really incredible and non-touristy. The people in St. Martin are amazingly accommodating and friendly, there are tons of bistros, cafes, markets, brasseries, boulangeries, etc., and you are within close walking distance to several different metro lines. And as for the place being atop several flights of stairs: we found that most of the sites around Paris require much stair-climbing, so we weren't bothered by it.
PLEASE NOTE: We traveled during what is considered the "off-season" (winter/pre-spring) so we may have had a different experience than most "tourists" do. However, I think that staying in an area that isn't in central Paris lends itself to friendlier, less bustling Parisians.
If/when we return to Paris, I truly hope that Matt's apartment is available again!
wow!!! what a wonderful experience! matt and his wife made every moment of this interaction warm, comfortable and easy. with prompt responses and amazing personalized lists/suggestions tailored to my individual needs, these awesome hosts ensured I had everything I needed to make this trip a spectacular one. the condo was beautiful, inviting, comfortable and conveniently located. it was stocked with everything you could possibly hope for. no detail was overlooked. I was able to enjoy my vacation, but continue to stay connected with work and everyone back home without skipping a beat. the house manual had answers to any questions I could possibly have and was so thoughtfully organized. I have used air b n b many times and have to say, as a young woman traveling alone, I was provided an experience that was safe and that gave me the confidence to feel like I was actually living in paris instead of just visiting. knowing that if should I need anything, matt and his wife were just a quick email away really also helped to ensure I was able to enjoy every moment to the fullest! a giant merci for this fabulous experience :)

I like travelling, music, learning & speaking languages and renting out my places to friendly people like you of course. I've lived in a few different countries and have been in Paris for around 10 years.
