CHECK-IN and CHECK-OUT:
I am very flexible. You can arrive late at night and leave early in the morning, this will not be a problem. I will just ask you to provide your flight/train details after the booking is completed so I can make arrangements and make sure I will be able to welcome you.
for very early checkins or very late checkouts i will always try to make that possible, but if the place is booked by other guests it depends on their schedules. If anything is overlapping the checkin/out time would be noon like in a hotel but it should always be possible to leave/drop the bags at least if the other guests don´t mind.
The host is responsible for insurance of the property ONLY – All other insurance, being accidents - inside or outside the apartment - health, cancellations and / or belongings is the guest's responsibility.

We contacted Justin when we arrived on Eurostar and he was at the apartment entrance to meet us. The apartment was perfect, quiet, garden outlook; safe and secure; even better than the photos, because of great placement of many lamps; lovely atmosphere. Justin showed us all around the apartment, which was very well equipped and comfortable. Nothing was forgotten and the apartment was perfectly clean and fresh.
The apartment is cleverly planned to make the best of the space, with well positioned mirrors, great storage ideas everywhere and a dining table which quickly folds away to become a console table. Artwork abounds and is well displayed, a music system is concealed in a Chinese cabinet and there is a comprehensive collection of books relating to art, history and culture together with up to date guide books.
About 25 meters at the corner is a pharmacy, 30 meters around the corner an excellent boulanger/ patissier (witness huge queues at lunchtime) and another 100 meters or less to an "open all hours" Carrefour express. Opposite the boulanger is a bistro "Au pied de fouet". Very reasonable, very good food and wine but "THE MOST RAPID SERVICE" imaginable. Do not expect a long relaxing evening! Another 30 meters to Coutume Cafe for perfect small estate coffee and good food too.
Three Metro stations in easy reach, easy walks to Les Invalides, the Rodin Museum, Musee d'Orsay, Eiffel tower, St Germain.
We have stayed in a number of apartments in Paris previously. This apartment was one in which I would love to live, in a delightful area and the whole experience was facilitated by Justin and airb&b.
What a lovely apartment and the neighborhood was the best. Enjoyed our experience here immensely. Thank you!
We were welcomed into this most beautiful, charming, quiet flat by the owner himself. The place has been decorated with beautiful art and comfortable amenities in a great, safe, quiet neighborhood. For our first visit to Paris as a family, this apartment was a perfect home base for seeing the city. Close to the metro stop, Eiffel Tower district, great coffee shop around the corner, good restaurants nearby.
Justin prepared us for our visit perfectly and they even helped us recover a notebook that was accidentally left in the place. I'd not hesitate to rent this place again.
Alla grande. Affascinante ed elegante. In un quartiere comodo e strategico. Silenzioso e rilassante.
Charming apartment in a central location, with our choice of three Metro stations nearby. Mr. Darbonne greeeted us and showed us around the apartment, which reflects his love of art and architecture.

Bonjour! Have been living in Paris for six years now and have been enjoying it a lot!
I´m a passionate host on Airbnb, and only happy when my guests are happy. I love to share my knowledge and appreciation and love for Paris with my guests.
I will always do everything I can to make your stay as perfect and as comfortable as possible.
A while ago I teamed up with Sara, a young American, to be even more available for our guests at all times.
We are very flexible time wise, so me or my partner Sara will always meet you in person when you arrive and welcome you and share local knowledge with you.
I´m managing these apartments for their individual owners and I carefully select them and only take on places I would be happy to arrive at myself if I would be the guest.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Paris soon!
