Instead we recommend using the lockers at Gare du Nord station. (easy access from the apartment, and to both airports)

Please leave the apartment reasonably tidy otherwise an extra cleaning fee will apply!
Patrick stayed in touch with us regularly and provided helpful local transportation tips to get us to the apartment quickly and affordably. The pictures represent the flat very well and we found it to be very clean and comfortable. Food and drink abound just below the flat and perhaps the only downside was the very-noisy, late-night-drinking crowd going strong until about 3AM, making it a bit difficult to sleep.
Location is great with just a short walk to the Seine and the Louvre and a short-Uber ride to most popular sites.
Patrick was an excellent communicator and always quick to respond to messages. This was essential as we did not get to meet Patrick, but had instructions where to pick up the keys (and leave them at the end). The main plus of the apartment is that it is very centrally located to explore many main sights e.g. 5-10 minutes walk to Notre Dame. It is in a pedestrian precinct, so the immediate area is mainly restaurants and bars, which it must be said are very busy and noisy in the evenings. (We were there over the weekend, so it may be less busy during week nights. )
The main issue apart from this that other guests have mentioned, is that the access to the apartment is challenging, involving several flights of narrow, sloping stairs and further doors. Because of this I would only recommend it for physically able guests. (We are pretty fit and we found it a challenge.)
Unfortunately during the time we stayed there was some issues with the cleanliness of the apartment, which I am sure Patrick has now resolved.
Are host went out of his way to accommodate our stay by purchasing an air mattress for our granddaughter to sleep on. The listing was accurately described and pictured on Airbnb. It is in the middle of a lively neighborhood of restaurants and bars, that are open till the wee hours of the morning. Our host left a great directory of places to eat and how to arrange for a cab, which came in handy. Susan
Location was excellent, all main attractions are in walking distance.
However, the apartment stairs were narrow, there was a noisy just under our window, they kept shouting till 5 am, had to keep window closed.
Apartment itself was clean and spacious.
