Le Marais itself is one of the most treasured, chic, and culturally admired districts in all of Paris, with a multitude of museums, art galleries, historical landmarks and streets, stylish boutiques, amazing restaurants, wine/grocery shops, parks, cafes and charming farmers markets, this inspiring neighborhood draws a creative crowd and an eclectic bunch of young professionals.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The apartment is quaint, clean, sunny, and has lots of charm. The neighborhood is trendy with many restaurants and shops and we especially recommend Chez Janou ( closed Mondays ) which is 3 blocks away. Don't bring a lot of luggage as the three floor walk up can be challenging. The bathroom is very typically European and the bath/shower has a low ceiling so men be prepared to sit in the tub while showering. The bed and pillows were 'tres bien' made of goose down feathers. The closest Metro stop is Chemin Vert which makes the rest of Paris easily accessible.

  • Great location - close to metro and in a great neighborhood with interesting galleries, shops and restaurants. We tried four of the suggested restaurants, and they were all excellent. Apartment was very clean and had plenty of space for my wife, daughter and me. We had a great stay in Le Marais.

  • We had a wonderful 7 night stay at Carine's apartment. It was exactly as described and comfortably slept four people. Conveniently located to the metro, restaurants and a grocery store just down the street. We also discovered the most amazing bakery for fresh croissants every morning just off Boulevard Beaumarchais called Artisan Boulanger Patissier. The best croissants I've ever had! This is truly the best neighborhood to stay in. Communication with Carine was easy and she responded right away to emails. Thanks Carine! We would definitely stay here again.

  • Carine's apartment is fantastic and is just as you see in the pictures.

    We stayed for 7 days over New Year.

    It's incredibly conveniently located near a good metro station, but we ended up walking to lots of places because it's situated in an interesting area.

    The apartment is warm and spacious, and surprisingly quiet. All amenities were there for our use.

    The booking was easy, and communication great - we were met by a agent who showed us in and made sure everything was OK. Carine provided a list of useful local places, including a great market just up the road.

    Definitely recommended as a good place. You won't regret it.

  • We spent 4 days at Carine's apartment in the early days of December. We really felt like at home. Everything is exactly as in the pictures. It is quiet, sunny, bright, comfortable and very clean. What else can you ask for?
    The location is great, just minutes away from most of Paris attractions and in a in the heart of Le Marais, full of shops, restaurants, bistros, and lovely people.
    But without any doubt, the best of the apartment is Carine. We had some problems with another apartment and she was so helpful with us. She took all the interest to help us and really made our days.... I can only say Thanks.. We will come back to Paris, and to her place, for sure! Don't go on looking for more places. This is the place in Paris. Arturo and Andres.

  • Lovely apartment, great location!

    October 2013
  • Nice decorated, prisian atmosphere, comfortable apartment in a very good neighborhood (le marais), with many caffee shops and restaurants near by, 2 minutes walk to metro station.10-15 minutes wak to the siene river. Difficult to climb the 3 floors up (no lift ) and there is no real standing shower (only bath tub).
    I recommend this place and may come again in my next visit to paris.

    July 2013
  • Great location in Paris. The apartment is close to major sites and is in the best neighborhood of Paris. The place was as advertised and was clean. The host was very helpful in answering questions and resolving any issues that came up. Highly recommend the apt.

My name is Carine and I have been living in New York for 20 years. I bought this lovely apt in Paris as i travel back often and wanted a home "away from home". My husband and i put all of our hearts into making it a lovely, cozy, comfortable place. We travel extensively, and most often use vacation rentals as we're tired of hotels. Years of vacation rental experience (very good and very bad ones ;) allowed us to set up this home for you. We tried to think of every possible detail, in order to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.... we love this apartment and hope you'll love it too!
