Take a step back in time – the street got its name "Quai des Grands Augustins" in around 1444 and the buildings date from 16th to 18th Century ! - while enjoying all the modern comforts of this spacious totally renovated apartment with high ceilings, fine original beams, and tall windows overlooking the bouquinistes booths on the banks of the Seine, the Ile de la Cité. Double glazing protects from street noise.
There is a medium large flat screen television in the living room as well as wireless high speed internet access, though you must bring your own laptop; the apartment does not contain a computer.
The kitchen has lots of light and contains everything you’ll need like toaster, dishwasher, laundry, deep freezer, fridge, 4flame stove, oven, microwave, Nespresso machine....
This is the perfect apartment for a couple or a family traveling to Paris on a budget and looking for their own space in, perhaps, the most quaint arrondissement of Paris. With the Seine river in front and the Mariage Frères tea house around the corner, there is no doubt that while staying on Quai des Grands Augustins you will have a very Parisian experience.

The direct RER train from Charles de Gaulle and Orly airport conveniently stops only 50meters from the house, making arrival and departure extremely quick and easy.
It is in a truly enviable location ! In the heart of the Latin Quarter, the Boulevard St Germain, what more could you ask for? How about a view over the Seine to the Louvre and the towers of Notre Dame Cathedral! A concert in the Sainte Chapelle, a Sunday walk around the bird market – all just a step away on the Ile de la Cite ! Feel like shopping? In the maze of narrow medieval streets you will daily walk past designer boutiques, antique shops, specialist book stores, prestigious art galleries … Feeling hungry? Just take your pick of anything from a dozen tiny bistros to the famous Lapérouse or Tour d’Argent , or lunch beneath the chestnut trees in the Luxembourg gardens! Or stroll to the bustling rue de Seine street market, make your selection from a hundred different cheeses, olive oil from a shop that sells nothing else! The Louvre, the Marais, the Ile St Louis and the Luxembourg gardens and much more are all within easy walking distance.
Metro: St. Michel 1min. walk. (the direct train from Charles de Gaulle and Orly airport stops there!)
After the reservation is accepted, I will email you all necessary information how to get to the apartment (from airports or train stations), and will also request some travel details from you to plan the checkin and checkout. Please feel free to ask for any additional information you would need.
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.

The apartment was great, exactly to the description and photos. The location was perfect, walking distance to all the major attractions. The view of Notre Dame is amazing. All communication with Justin was quick and reliable. This is the first time we have used Airbnb and we are very happy with the service. Thank you to Justin and Betty for their very friendly and helpful advice and communication.
The term "Superhost" does not seem sufficient when describing the excellent service and attention to detail that Justin provides. He has thought of every detail in advance, communicates promptly and clearly as well as being a very kind and helpful person.
This is our second stay at one of Justin's apartments, and we are very grateful to him, and to his Associate, Daniel, who was also very friendly and helpful.
They are simply the best.
Justin was terrific about communicating with us prior to and during our stay in Paris! Merci Justin!
Our accommodations were just as described, but nonetheless, exceeded our expectations in terms of location and comfort. The view, especially at night was spectacular. The flat is centrally located and convenient to lots of sites, the metro, restaurants and night life. The flat can easily accommodate up to 4 people, including the convertible bed - which was very comfortable. The windows were very sound proof, so street noise can be shut out if desired. We thoroughly enjoyed the flat and our time in Paris. If you are looking for central location, this is it!
Merci beaucoup Justin!!!
Parking was nearby and convenient if needed.
位置特别好 楼下就是塞纳河左岸地区 楼下的几个餐馆也非常不错 走路就可以到圣母院 蓬皮杜等 节省很多时间 房东也很热情 负责任的为我们讲解房屋需要注意的问题 据说餐桌已经有百年历史 出产过法国的诗歌
The listing was perfectly accurate. Justin was EXTREMELY flexible with my requests. And the view... OMG... The view is just the best in Paris
We booked this apartment for our first trip to Paris, and our first time using Air BnB . Justin made the whole process a breeze, from emailing us all the relevant information before we left Australia, to meeting us on arrival and explaining everything we needed to know re the apartment,and also how to get around the area. The apartment is situated in one of the best areas of Paris. The views over the Seine to Notre Dame are gorgeous. We were able to walk to every major sight including the louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arch de Triomphe etc. There are hundreds of wonderful cafes , bars and restaurants, on your doorstep. I really couldn't fault our stay at all.
Our experience was perfect. With Notre Dame just out our door, the view from the apartment and the location was ideal. It was very easy to get around as there is a RER and mentor station right outside our door. It was also a great central hub with plenty of great restaurants and sights nearby. I would recommend it to anyone traveling to paris.

About the Host, Justin
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!
