Other Things to Note
★ About us:
We are a couple (French & Cook Islander/New Zealander). We're both easy-going with a sense of humour (including the 'French humour') and enjoy relaxing. We're both currently working so you will have privacy during your stay. We both are fluent in English & Pierre has some notions of Spanish and German.
Unfortunately we had some problems with early check ins and late check outs, so please understand we cannot offer those.
As a reminder, this is a listing for a private room with a real bed (as you will see on description), this means it is our spare bedroom we are offering to the guests and we share the rest of the apartment (including bathroom). We just wanted to point it out, as we've had some questions about this. If you need a place to yourself, why not click on our profile picture and scroll down to 'Listings' to see our self contained studio - Paris Central Love Nest.
Please no smoking in the room/flat - I am asthmatic. You can smoke in our lovely courtyard on a bench.
Please respect the apartment as you would expect us to respect you.
Do not to hesitate to ask us where's what, would you need to use the kitchen, or how to use the Espresso machine or dishwasher...
We usually go through the details for longer stay as we'll make room for you in the fridge and freezer of course. But I must say there are a lot of amazing places to eat out within less than 5 min walk (recommended price is usually EUR25 for a 3 course meal). Have a look at the selection we made for you on the guidebook.
Deposit is for the key, to make sure you won't lose it.
List of countries for free calls provided when you book and you are responsible for extra charges on phone bill.
Unfortunately, we do not allow early check ins or late check outs, as there's been some problems with that, but there are lockers in most of the train stations for your convenience.
If you have any questions or need further information, just flick us a message and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
Cheers, and bienvenue à Paris.

Pierre and Duncan's apartment was a perfect base for my first visit to Paris. I stayed six nights and I either walked everywhere or I caught the metro easily. I loved the location and its vibrant, rich multiculturalism, friendly locals and brilliant food, coffee and cocktails, just off the tourist strip but close enough to it. As for the apartment, it was great and as described. Pierre and Duncan were also great hosts and Pierre gave me a tour of the local area and offered many helpful suggestions during my week in Paris. Highly recommended.
A massive thank you to Pierre and Duncan for being such incredible hosts for my first ever Airbnb experience as well as my first ever trip to Paris. Your kindness, friendliness and generosity has given me wonderful memories of Paris. Thank you!
This was my first Airbnb experience and I have to say that Duncan and Pierre set the bar very high. They have a great combination of professionalism (when it comes to booking and communications) and hospitality. I felt very welcomed from the moment I arrived and they helped me to get to know Paris even better than I already did. Great room and apartment, wonderful location and super clean! I would definitely recommend their place and hope it is available the next time I'm in Paris.
Nos hôtes nous ont permis de découvrir un quartier de Paris que nous ne connaissions pas et qui est bien agréable
Ainsi nous avons pu apprécier la place sainte marthe la rue des artistes' des artisans et commerçants disquaire et restaurateurs. de même leurs indications sur le canal et ses boutiques alentours ont été une agréable surprise
This was the perfect home base for me while I was in Paris. Pierre and Duncan were wonderful hosts. They gave me a full walkthrough of the flat and a tour around the block to point out the amenities in the neighborhood. The room itself was super cozy and well-furnished. I would definitely recommend Pierre and Duncan's place to anyone who is looking to stay in Paris!
The room is so clean and nice. We had everything we need. The location is great as well. Pierre is so helpful in guiding us in Paris! And we loved the apartment overall! Thanks!
Pierre and Duncan are great hosts, and just really great guys. Always happy to help with any questions or queries. Hope to stay again.

About the Host, Pierre & Duncan
Been doing AirBNB since Feb 2013 and what I've seen so far I have loved! This is a great way to meet people and I can't wait to take my own trip using this site. It's certainly a good option if you're after something a little different during your holiday.
Enjoy your travels wherever they may take you and maybe we will see you some time.
Duncan & Pierre.
