Living in Paris for now until...
Awesome trip with a wonderful place to stay! This apartment was perfect for all of our needs and we really enjoyed our time here. The kitchen is well equipped, we made breakfast for ourselves every morning! There are so many shops nearby, it made it extremely easy to get everything we needed from veggies and fruit to bread and cheese, and of course lots of coffee! The other areas of Paris were really easy to get to either by taxi or train and we felt centrally located without staying in the busiest area of town. My husband was working at La Grande Hall Villette and we were able to walk there! The apartment is spacious (especially for two people!) and we appreciated the modern yet Parisian feel to it. Fredrik greeted us when we first got there and was very welcoming! He is so helpful and accommodating and he gave us lots of tips on places to eat and things to do nearby. We definitely look forward to staying here again on future trips to Paris!
We spent 4 days in this cosy apt in Paris and we enjoyed definitely our stay. We didn' t meet Frederik personally but he did all his best to organize us a comfortable stay in a very short time because we contact him the day before leaving! So regardless the few hours he had to fix and to arrange everything from afar, we were able to spend an agreable and beautiful 4 days (rainy) Paris not missing anything at home!
We appreciated the location of this house ( just 1 minute from the metro and only 3 metro stops from Gare du Nord) and the light which comes inside expecially with the sunset. Also we could spend our time with some friends who live 650 m away without getting any public transport!
Our son of 17 months was very happy to go up through the stairs by himself and to look out of the windows getting excited because of the vivid street and the busy and "colored" environement down street.
Everything was above our expectations, and we'd most definitely stay again. We want to recommend this place to other people, also with children.
Appartement très sympa, lumineux, bien équipé, bien situé dans un très joli quartier à coté du parc des Buttes Chaumont et du canal de l'Ourcq.
His appartement was very clean and nice. We had a lit if space.Frederik wasn't there when we arrived but his friend welcomed us very nicely. The place is quite central and near a lovely parc. In sum we had a very nice stay in his flat. I highly recommand his place.
Frederik is the perfect host: always responsive to questions, from our very first contact, and throughout our stay.
Location: a pleasant, two minute walk from the Metro station "Laumier"; the apartment is a convenient stroll to many local vendors of fruit & vegetables, pastries, meat, cheese and chocolate, plus a well-outfitted Monoprix (supermarket and department store) just a three minute walk up the street.
In the kitchen: a full-size refrigerator/freezer and a combination electric and gas cooktop. There's a small washing machine and a drying rack, so you don't have to bring a lot of socks and underwear!
In the bedroom: a comfortable, full-size platform bed, with plenty of clothing storage and a hanging rack -- all in a spacious separate bedroom with room-darkening curtains.
In the bathroom: the rain-head shower was great, with and option for a hand-held hose, and plenty of hot water. There's also a hair dryer under the sink, so you don't need to bring one or a converter.
In general: many electrical outlets; an available plug converter, and overall great lighting; telephone for local calls and great wifi; high ceilings, lots of windows; secure coded entrance to the apartment building, and a two floors walk-up.
We had a fantastic stay at Frederik's apartment!

We stayed three nights in this apartment. Apartment was very clean, and tide. Beds are very comfortable. It is located at nice area and not far from everything else.
I will highly recommend this apartment.
Frederick was a very generous host meeting us on our arrival and not being too fussed that we turned up early. The apartment was extremely comfortable,much as described and suited a family of three. Great to have an oasis to return to each night and a place we could self cater if desired.Loved watching the busyness of the colourful neighbourhood below and the shops and transport were all handy, great to be able to walk out the door and grab pastries and fruit from the local shops in the morning. Supermarket was also useful. Daughter loved the disco shower!
Frederik is a good host. Our check-in has been flawlessly organized. We easily found the apartment and had no difficulties accessing it. It is located in a nice area, close to Metro and grocery stores. There is no elevator, and the staircase to the apartment, which is located on the 3rd floor, is quite steep, so if you have difficulties walking or climbing stairs, take this into consideration.
Thank you, Frederik, for accommodation.
My sister and I loved our stay at Frederik's. We didn't get to meet him but talked on the phone. The 2 flights of stairs up was a bit hard with our girl sized luggage but we managed. The metro is very close to get around Paris and so lovely to come back 'home' each day. There's a great fruit and veg place across the road and a wonderful patisserie. We stopped at both each day. Book- you won't regret it. Thanks Frederik
Great experience, Frederik was a perfect host. The place was as advertised, clean and spacious. We had 2 adults and 2 kids. having the park two blocks away was great. The neighborhood was safe and convenient to the metro. Thanks Frederik for an outstanding visit.

Fred and his girlfriend were wonderful guests, extremly appriciative, enthusiastic and friendly. Comunicating was swift and easy.They seemed adventures, too, just returning from a backpack-trip to Turkey. They left the apartment in a very good state and ever so kindly left a guidebook for me to pass on to fellow trravellers. Thank you both so much!
Frederik was a perfect "guest". Very easygoing, friendly and serious. He left my house very tidy. Absolutely nothing to criticize. Thanks Frederik!
I spent an excellent week in Frederik's apartment. It is bright, quiet, ideally located near the Parc des Buttes Chaumont ... Fred is a very cool boy and very welcoming.
Excellent vibes in this place, you will like it !!!!
