About this listing
Our apartment located in the tenth arrondissement of Paris, in the heart of the city. As the apartment is five minutes walking distance away from numerous metro-lines (Louis Blanc, Stalingrad & Jaures), it is very easy to get around. Also walking distance to two big train stations: Gare de l'Est and Gare du Nord. Multicultural area near lots of authentic Indian restaurants, but also next door to up and coming area of Canal saint Martin. We are also located near the Parc de la Villette, Parc de Buttes Chaumont and not far from Montmartre.
We are on the top floor, which means plenty of light and a beautiful view over countless parisian rooftops. The apartment consists of a bathroom, a bedroom (our bedroom that is), a kitchenette and a salon - where you would be staying. The sofa is a pull-out, comfortable and big enough for two, so this is ideal for a couple or two close friends. Of course you are free to use the kitchen, fridge and anything else you may need.
We are a young anglophone couple (New Zealand & Sweden), we've lived here for numerous years, and are happy to help you out with fun things to do, places to eat and things to see in the city!
Hope to see you soon!

A ten minute walk in one direction to lots of Indian restaurants, and five minutes in the other direction to trendy Canal saint Martin. Lots of restaurants, shops & cafés nearby, not very touristy but mostly locals in the area.
Nearest metro stop is Louis Blanc, which is literally one minute away from our front door. Metro Stalingrad is just down the street, and Jaures is around the corner. Also walking distance from Gare du Nord (ideal coming in from one of the bigger airports) and Gare de l'Est.
Elin und Duncan's Zuhause ist wirklich gemütlich und sehr, sehr authentisch, nicht sehr groß, aber auf jeden Fall groß genug, damit kein Engegefühl entsteht. Die Lage ist überraschend ruhig, mit guter Anbindung an Métro, Restaurants und sogar Waschsalons (was sich während unseres Aufenthaltes als praktisch erwiesen hat)... Die beiden waren aufmerksam, offen und mehr als großzügig. Die nettesten, unkompliziertesten und hilfsbereitesten Gastgeber, die man sich vorstellen kann.
As soon as we walked in the door after a long flight to Paris, we immediately felt welcomed and at home by Elin and Duncan. They were both so helpful, hospitable and genuinely lovely people!! Their advice and insights into Paris helped make our 5 day visit most enjoyable of our trip and we will definitely be back to stay again. Their apartment is cosy, homely and in a great location to get around by foot, or metro. Five stars for sure! Thank you Elin and Duncan :)
As has already been so plainly stated by the thousands of positive reviews....it's no surprise that this couple and their wonderful parisian apartment is a great stay. They've been doing this for a while and are pretty good at it. Very very very chill, come and go as you please, you can't go wrong.
Elin and Duncan gave me a warm welcome, and I really enjoyed staying with them! They were friendly, and gave me plenty of privacy. The location is good, near the metro. I would recomment them to anyone visiting Paris:)
Spent a fantastic 2 nights in this wonderful area of Paris in Elin and Duncan's lovely appartment, a stone's throw from two metro stations— couldn't have been easier to get to. Duncan was there to greet me and made me feel instantly relaxed and at home. Such a chilled and beautiful couple. You sleep in the double convertible couch in the lounge, but it's really like being in your own bedroom. My stay in Paris couldn't have been better!
Elin and Duncan were very welcoming and easy going! They gave me ideas on what to see and what to do, and even let me borrow a paris map book and translation book. They also told me what to be careful of and what to look out for. I'd recommend staying here.
