We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carolyn's apartment. The location was great - just a 12 euro taxi ride the Eiffel Tower (the farthest out that we ventured from the apartment by taxi). There was a beautiful view of the river and of the river boats cruising by.
The apartment was very clean and comfortable to stay in with our two children. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils etc. She even had a supply of coffee pods for the espresso machine.
It was a nice stay at Carolyns!
Lovely welcoming, good instructions and a clean apartment.
In total - a good experience and an apartment we definitely could rent again.
We stayed in Carolyn's apartment for nine nights. We love the apartment with a blue wall, good-sized kitchen and the panoramic river view. And, we appreciate the thoughtfulness of attending in details, ranging from a wide range of sauces and condiment in the kitchen, to those up-to-date your books.
Lastly, Carolyn is open and flexible to accept our last minute request to extend two more nights. I have no doubt in recommending this apartment to my friends.
Very Nice relaxed appartment at Nice location. Walking distance to la Bastille and metro. Easy Communication with owner. We stayed with 2 children.
With my family (four people), We stayed in this apartment for four nights in October 2014. Carolyn communicated all instructions clearly and gave lots of advance notice before travel. Since Rafael did not meet on time I called Tatiana then Rafael come to meet us and he was late about fourty minutes. He clearly explained all the necessary things we needed to know. Toilet was not cleaned adequately. We did not sleep in comfortable, since pillows are very thin. There were two towels in bathroom but there should be four towels because we were four people. My suggestion to Carolyn, she should control cleaning, put towels according to people numbers and change bed and put thick and big pillows as spare. Other things for flat was exactly as described. Kitchen was fully equipped so that we had breakfast every day. It was especially nice to have dishwasher, hairdryer and washing clothes. Location was great - just minutes from several metro stops, great patisserie around the corner and big groceries within 10 minutes. You do have great walking across the river, which is nice. Although We had some complaints, We recommend for visitors to Paris.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday (3 people).
No concerns about the area - the appartment itself is safe (front door locked, door in lobby locked, appartement door locked)
street is fairly noisy but okay with the window closed, super market is a bit far away.
the location is sensational - and so is the bakery around the corner
you will need to do a lot of 'metro ups-and-downs' to make up for the delicious flans, pain au chocolats and baguettes
but eh - c'est Paris !!! ... and we loved it !!!
We stayed in this lovely apartment for four nights in October 2014. The pictures are accurate in showing a clean and comfortable living space. We did not use the kitchen much, but the living and dining areas and the bedroom were excellent places to relax after a long day of exploring Paris. A metro stop is very close to the apartment, which connects you anywhere in the city. Rafael was very helpful at checkin. The balcony was great and the heavy glass doors eliminated the loud traffic noise on the street below. Recommended for visitors to Paris.
