UPDATE February 21, 2013
Staying at a local's is a great way to embrace a new city and it's with a great pleasure that we open our space and share our knowledge to people with the same enthusiasm. Unfortunately, some people have treated our home like it was “just” a rental and damaged items without coming forward even. Again, we know that accidents happen but we are only upset when guests don't take their responsibility, which makes the next guests' stay less enjoyable :(
Our stay with David was great! He was very good at communicating with us and very accommodating. The apartment was in a great location with a lovely view from the balcony. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed.
We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend to stay here.
The description was accurate. The flat was charming. We loved the balcony and view of nightclubs full of happy people across the canal. The location was also great.
David was great, easily reachable via message, and communicative. His apartment was modern, clean and efficient. The location was superb right there on the Canal Saint-Martin with sweeping canal views which we enjoyed day and night.
The terrace with 180 degree canal views is undoubtly the best part of the apartement and the location fantastic with bars and restaurants on the canal, which can easily be walked and hung out south to or north from Bastille. Great experience all together!!!
Everything was perfect: nice and clean appartment, parking lot with space even for the 3 bikes, "charming river view" like the name promised, very friendly welcome and host. Thanks a lot.
We had a wonderful stay, apartment is spacious enough for 3 to 4 people and very clean, tidy and cosy. Location is great, along the canal and with several metro-stations and plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. We felt very comfortable in the apartment as well as in the neighborhood, also our 12 year old daughter did so. Big advantage of the apartment is the parking garage and the balcony...breakfast in the sun with view on the canal!
David was very kind and arranged everything very well although he could not meet us in person. The contact person was in the apartment when we arrived and showed us parking garage, helped with luggage en explained everything about the apartment.
This was our first airbnb experience and it was a great one! We definitely recommend this apartment and David is a great host, who also during our stay kept in contact with us, asking if everything was fine etc. Next time Paris, we will certainly try to stay in this apartment again!
Nuestra experiencia en París fue inigualable! El departamento de David es precioso, cómodo y todo estaba impecable. Viajamos mi esposo, mis dos hijos y yo y su casa tenía todas las comodidades. La ubicación es muy buena, el metro está cerca y es fácil moverse por la ciudad desde ahí. Además, David nos ayudó con muy buenas recomendaciones que hicieron de nuestro viaje una experiencia todavía mejor! Por supuesto que regresaríamos! / Our experience in Paris was outstanding, David's home is beautiful, clean, with everything you may need and well ubicated. David was a great host, always answering almost in real time my messages and recommending us the perfect plan for me and my family! Thank you for this great and unforgettable experience
