Patrick is an excellent communicator. He sent clear directions and followed up very soon afterward because I did not acknowledge receipt. He responded to my messages almost immediately.
The location of Patrick's flat is superb. It is just a few blocks to Notre Dame and about 6 blocks to the Louvre. We walked everywhere, including to the Eiffel Tower (but that might be a bit too far for some guests).
The flat is located in a vibrant neighbourhood full of cafés and restaurants. There is a pharmacy and grocery store about a minute away. We enjoyed just walking through the streets.
The flat was well-equipped. Also, we found a helpful folder of instructions and advice (e.g., restaurant locations and phone numbers).
The apartment was clean and nice, with fresh sheets and towels. The apartment was in the assigned neighborhood, which is really central with Marais around the corner which is full of nice cafés and restaurants. A very nice and smooth way of enjoying a weekend in Paris. Thank you for having us Patrick!
Patrick's apartment was excellent -- clean, spacious, and very well located. Kitchen amenities allowed us to make breakfast each morning, but there were also lots of options in the neighborhood for eating out. Other tenants in the building were very quiet and, while there was a fair amount of noise from late-night revelers in the bars below, the windows did a good job of blocking most of the noise out. We had a little snafu with checking in to the apartment -- apparently the lock on the apartment door broke as the previous guests were leaving that morning. But Patrick and his assistant Maria were responsive to my request for help; a locksmith came not long after we arrived and he fixed the lock on the spot. All in all, we had a lovely stay.
We booked few months in advance of the trip. The listing was as described. Patrick had sent an email with details which for the check in process. This was helpful.
The location is great, very convenient to many of the attractions and most importantly, metro. There are both "chain" restaurants as well as small shops in the area.
Even though it is near a busy bar/restaurant area; the noise was not an issue at night. We felt safe.
We had one issue (our key would not open the door - three days into our trip, it was resolved -- we did delay an outing for 1+ hour or so). But that is the difference between staying at a Marriott and AirBNB. Patrick, was very communicative and helpful during that time and provided a partial refund for the day.
