LISTED AIRBNB TOP 40 ALL OVER THE WORLD !
Private studio (11sqm) on a 100yrs old houseboat right under the Eiffel Tower, on an outstanding pedestrian pier (Port de Suffren, World Heritage of Unesco). Central, yet very quiet and safe.
The owners of the houseboat also live there, but the two flats are perfectly independant.
The place is not huge (remember, you are on a boat!), but so romantic and cosy, it is like a little love nest on the river.
So what you have ALL FOR YOU is : a private entrance and private deck with table and chairs (perfect for a lunch or a drink outside !), a studio on two levels with a private bathroom (bathtub and shower, with a panoramic view!) and private toilets. "Bunk bed" 120x200, smaller than a regular double but will perfectly suit a couple. Sofa, chairs and tables, Nespresso, TV, WIFI, ipod station. The studio is well heated so comfortable even in winter. Breakfeast equipment, fridge. Extraordinary view (360 °) on the Seine, the Eiffel Tower, and monuments.
Private parking (10 €).
Just near by (5/10 minutes walk) : Eiffel Tower, Champs de Mars, Musee du Quai Branly, Trocadéro, Statue of Liberty, Museum of Modern Art, Palais de Tokyo, Grand Palais, weekly farmer markets.
And all Paris at walking distance!
BRAND NEW : IN JUNE 2013, AN AMAZING PEDESTRIAN PATH ("VOIES SUR BERGE") WAS LAUNCHED ON PARIS LEFT BANK, WITH PLENTY OF ACTIVITIES AND CAFES. AND THE BOAT IS RIGHT AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE PATH !!!!!!!! INCREDIBLY NICE FOR AN EVENING STROLL, A MORNING JOG OR A BIKE RIDE THAT WILL TAKE OU ALL THE WAY TO MUSEE D'ORSAY OR LE LOUVRE.

Tout d'abord merci à Hélène, nous avons passé une semaine magique à Paris. La peniche est un joli cocon très calme sur la Seine au milieu de l'agitation urbaine. Nous avons trouvé toutes les commodités à côté et tous les transports pour visiter Paris. Ce studio sur l'eau est romantique et nous y retournerons avec plaisir. Dormir aux pieds de la grande Tour Eiffel quel bonheur !!
The houseboat was as described - very cosy and unbelievably close too all the main sightings. It was a little bit cold although two heaters were in the boat. We enjoyed our stay a lot and had an amazing experience that we will not forget to soon.
We had a great time in Paris and the boat was great and it's location even better. We knew it was a small boat, but it's even smaller than expected. Showering is a little bit improvicing and the bed isn't big. But by all these things it felt cozy and romantic. Had a great time!
We felt very welcomed to the house boat. The neighborhood was beautiful and a great location by the Eiffel Tower. It was a little further from other things around the city, but by using the metro we had no problem. We would love to stay at this location again!! The only downfall was the boat was a little chilly, but I believe that was due to us not understanding how to work the heaters properly!
The boat was a great experience for New Years and in a perfect location. Helen was friendly and communicative.
What a fantastic time on Helene's houseboat! The location is ideal and close to everything we wanted to see. Although we were right next to the train, we really didn't hear it much. We walked pretty much everywhere. Our favorite things were: 1) the bed (much more comfortable than we thought and my husband is 6'2"); 2) watching a movie on Christmas night on the TV off my ipad (bring an HDMI cord) and 3) Raising the shade and watching the Eiffel Tower at night. Highly recommended, an experience we won't forget!!

Very happy to greet you on our houseboat, located right under the Eiffel tower ! This houseboat has been our home for 8 years now, with our soon. In winter 14/15 we will be living elsewhere (we keep the rental of course) but will be back in our unit on July 15 !
AS for us, we love living on the water, it gives us such a great feeling of freedom and uniqueness ! We love to chill out on the deck with friends, relax, watch the boats and the sawns, and enjoy the sunset with a glass of vine from there.
But we are also in love and very busy with Paris urban life, as all the city jhas to offer is so close from our secret paradise.
We have renovated the boat ourselves. It has been since then displayed in many magasine and TV shows, is listed in Louis Vuitton Paris City Guide and rated Airbnb Top40 over the world !
