some points are important to respect:
-it's compulsory to respect the neighbors and the quietness of the building: do not make too much noise after 10PM or before 8am. Do not set appointment/stand/seat/stay/discuss in the lobby or in the stairs but do it in the apartment or outside the building.
-take care of the apartment and its equipment as if it was your own: as it's a private flat, and not an hotel, we filled the apartment with nice antiques, arty stuff, pretty bed linens and new appliances that need to be handle with care.
-Do not throw anything outside (cigarettes, papers, ...)
No cleaning fee is charged, we recommend daily maintenance of the place - which include taking care of garbage regularly and the respect of the furniture: no wet towels left on any piece of furniture outside the bathroom, etc. We kindly ask you to leave the apartment in an acceptable level of cleanliness (no stains/fat/garbage on the floor/fridge/worktops/furnitures/walls) , bath/sinks/toilets must be left clean, no dirty dishes should be left, etc.). We expect the bed linen to be remove and folded on the beds with towels to be cleaned, and all the garbage to be put in the container downstairs. Garbage in a bag into the green container. Thanks for your understanding.

As a host but also as a guest (I rented myself apartment for my holidays), I prefer to remind you the principle of renting a private apartment through Airbnb : this is not a hotel.
It is a real advantage because it is, in our opinion, the best way to experience rich tourism and feel the “personality” of a city/area. It's also less expensive to stay together in a large space with a tasteful decor and beautiful furnishings and many facilities means.
The principle is that you feel like "at home". However, this obviously brings some constraints:
-you must respect the apartment and the neighbours like in your own home : objects and furniture are fragile if you do not use them gently.
-You must behave to not annoy your "new” neighbors.
-When leaving the apartment, please leave it as if you leave your own apartment before leaving on vacation ;-)
-And enjoy the fun of discovering a new way of living: yes, our faucets will probably not work like yours but that's part of the charm of homestay :-)
At last but not least, we cannot provide a concierge service 24/7 because we work the day or we are on vacation. We will do our best to help you during your stay and we thank you in advance for your patience.
In summary here are the most important to respect rules during your stay (besides, of course, taking pleasure in Paris and in our apartment) :
DO NOT MAKE NOISE AFTER 10PM or BEFORE 8AM. If you checkin/out in the night or if you wake up in the night because of jetlag, please respect your neighbours’ sleep.
DO NOT STAY IN THE BUILDING COMMON PARTS (lobby, stairs, courtyard, etc.) Many neighbours are senior people who do not feel comfortable with crowd and suitcase piles in the stairs!
DO NOT THROW ANYTHING BY WINDOWS (cigarettes, papers, ...)
LARGE PARTIES & ANY EVENTS ARE PROHIBITED. Guests are not allowed to invite visitors over unless host has been informed and has agreed.
The no respect of one of the 4 points above would force me to cancel your reservation and shorten your stay in my apartment.
AS FOR CAR RENTAL, THIS APARTMENT IS PROVIDED READY TO USE. Any amenities, appliances, and features promised at the time of booking is available and operational at your arrival, unless special notice. We also provide fresh bedding and towels, soap, and toilet paper upon your arrival. Any amenities, appliances, and features not working, or broken or disappeared after your stay will be charged on your deposit.
CLEANING IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY UNLESS YOU ASKED FOR SUPPORT. No cleaning fee is charged, we recommend daily maintenance of the place - which includes taking care of garbage regularly and the respect of the furniture: no wet towels left on any piece of furniture outside the bathroom, etc. We kindly ask you to leave the apartment in an acceptable level of cleanliness :
- no stains, fat on the floor, in the fridge, on the worktops, on any furniture or walls,
- bath and sinks and toilets must be left clean,
- no dirty dishes should be left, etc.
- We expect the bed linen to be remove and folded on the beds with towels to be cleaned
- all the garbage should be put in the container downstairs.
The no respect of the points above will be charged 100€ minimum on your deposit.
Thanks for your understanding
first, my English is not good.
The owner is very rigorous and to solve this problem is very positive, even when he was in New York.
I'm glad to meet such a homeowner, despite problems solved by one of my French friends, still very grateful to him.
Boa Tarde, bem ao chegar ao apartamento do David, fiquei encantada, pois é realmente como esta no site.
Então sua esposa veio nos receber, apresentou o apartamento, e como funcionava todas as coisas.
Tanto David, quanto Carina, foram muito simpáticos e acolhedores. Recomendo sim o apartamento deles, caso eu volte a Paris desejo ficar com eles (website hidden) viagem estávamos em 6 pessoas, eu meu filho, meu namorado e três sobrinhas, e acolheu-nos super bem, quem tiver filhos o apartamento é ótimo. Perto tem restaurantes, supermercados farmácia, tudo que precisa.
As acomodações são ótimas e as camas super confortáveis.
Bem si tenho a dizer coisas positivas do casal e de seu apartamento.
Grata Camila Vicente.
I was travelling with my family of 5 and we had a wonderful stay in David's apartment. The apartment is just as you see it in the photos. We had plenty of room to spread out and it was wonderful to have a kitchen to do some cooking in. There were plenty of towels for everyone and the apartment was very clean and well appointed.
We were met for handover of the keys and given some great advice about getting around the city and some delicious local eateries too.
We highly recommend staying in this apartment and look forward to coming back again.

David's apartment was lovely, the bedrooms and living spaces were nicely furnished and very comfortable. Beds were very nice and we had a really good sleep! Only point of complaint I could possibly make is that David's house rules are a little pedantic. We are naturally tidy people, but were a bit stressed out by David's meticulous requests for cleaning. All in all, a nice stay. Would be more than happy to be there again!
Dear Demi, I thank you for your kind comment that we will take into account to improve ourselves. Although, please understand that many guests do not follow simple rules. Even you, natural tidy people, didn’t respect the simplest rule: you arrived several hours before what you scheduled with us and did not inform us of this. Consequently, despite our request, you stayed in the stairs, taking the risk to disturb neighbors. As you can see, it’s not always easy to be sure that every guests understand our rules. And it’s precisely this behavior that forces us to give precise repeated instructions and confirm that they are followed. I’m very glad that you enjoyed our apartment and wish you a very happy new year :-)
Lovely apartment at a very well and centralize location. More than enough spaces to accommodate 5 of us and well equipped too. We had a great time in Paris and wish we could have spend more times there.
The house is in good location，safe and close to metro. The owner is helpful, wait to meet us in late night, and give us a clear instruction how to use the facilities.
This location was so ideally located, it was super easy to get on the metro (especially for a 1st time Paris visitor like me.)
The place was very clean and upon meeting with the owner, it was very obvious very quickly that they care a lot about their place.
Their house manual is awesome and a great help! You can tell the owners have been updating themselves consistently about things that matter to the tourists. I felt super comfortable asking them any questions because they had the answers.
At the same time, they have a busy work schedule (as did I during my stay) so we actually had minimal contact. For me, that worked out well since I had everything I needed. But if you're looking to build a rapport or if you have a tendency to constantly need the owners around, then you might need to reconsider.
They also began to charge a cleaning fee now (only applicable if you don't feel like cleaning up after yourself). I chose to clean rather than pay & I think this is a reasonable request but im just mentioning it here only because it wasnt mentioned on the original AirBnb listing.
One thing to be mindful of: their hardwood floors creak a lot and during the late evening hours or early dawn, we were tiptoeing around the apartment just to be mindful of the neighbors. However, even tip toeing was hard since the floors were creaking everywhere. I knew noise was a concern and it would require a lot of discretion because I heard the Downstairs neighbor singing in the shower around midnight. If I could hear them, they are bound to hear you. Since this apt is on the top most level & noise is a huge concern, I wouldn't suggest it to anyone with children. Our party only consisted of adults so it worked out beautifully for us.
In a nutshell, I would definitely go back and easily stay here again.

HI! I'm a medical doctor and my wife works in a well know international organization. We (+ our 2 teens daughters) live in Paris, love it and know it very well. We can help you plan your journey in this wonderful city and give you both tourist and non-tourist good addresses.
We like to travel and visit cities: Living in an apartment instead of an hotel is the best way to feel the ambiance! We decorated our rented flat so that you can really feel the typical parisian luxury but trendy style !
We like our guests to take care of our apartment and we do the same when we travel in others houses.
