Please contact me with any questions - I will respond quickly. My goal is to make your stay in Paris as comfortable as possible.

Guest access

Our guests have access to the full apartment. This is not a share. You will have your own keys and can come and go as you please. Access to free on-site parking is by special prior arrangement only. Please contact me before your arrival to arrange access to the parking, if required.

Interaction with guests

We have a local apartment manager who oversees the check-in and check-out process. The apartment belongs to my in-laws who live outside of Paris for most of the year, and I manage the apartment for them because they do not speak English. While I live in California, I will ensure that your stay is as comfortable as is possible.

When you make a reservation, I will send you our "Welcome Document" that includes lots of important details about the apartment and a guide with our picks for the best neighborhood restaurants and other points of interest.

These charming, well provisioned, and perfectly situated accommodations in the 11ème afforded our family a wonderful séjour à Paris. Olivier was most helpful upon our arrival. And when a fortunately brief family medical emergency occurred immediately prior to our planned departure, our hosts Lorin and Eva were extremely understanding, flexible, kind and helpful!

We were met by manager of apartment promptly and shown the apartment in full detail. Underground parking was such a bonus. Apartment was exactly as described- spacious and most comfortable. Great area to explore Paris as metro was 2 minutes walk away.

This was the perfect apartment to stay in in Paris and Lorin was the perfect host. He provided excellent, practical information about the amenities in the apartment which all worked well and also lots about the neighbourhood, shops, restaurants, markets and things to walk to. The apartment was really clean and we felt like we were really in a local, rather than tourist, area. So close to the metro, great boulangeries and patisseries and we also walked and walked and walked around Le Marais and beyond. We would recommend the apartment to anyone and will be back. Merci beau coup Lorin and Oliver.

Yes, the listing description was accurate. The apartment was very quiet and furnishings were very nice. Appliances were easy to use and were adequate. We loved the church bells from across the street. Closeness to the Metro was a plus. We had a slight problem which was taken care of immediately by Lorin and help from a neighbor, who was extremely generous with his time to get the problem solved. All in all, we had a wonderful stay.

Everything wonderful you've read about in prior reviews of this apartment are true. Three of us stayed here for a week and were (EMAIL HIDDEN)fortable, very safe and a great location. Many cafes nearby and close to two Metro stops. Oliver greeted us when we arrived and Lorin was always quickly responsive at booking and to any questions we had. we would happily stay here again

The apartment was spacious, especially for Paris, and located within easy walking distance to all sorts of shops and two metro stations. The check in/check out procedures were simple and Lorin was very accommodating to our needs. This was our first Airbnb experience and we loved it. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who is planning to spend a few days or weeks in Paris. Thanks so much, Lorin.
