I was made very welcome and Marie-Francoise was a wonderful host, going the extra mile for me in a number of ways. She was full of helpful advice and information about how to make the most of this amazing city. The apartment was within walking distance of the Seine, Rue de Rivoli, Parc des Vosges and a number of museums, and only a few minutes from the bus top, supermarket and three metro stations. The locality was well lit with no graffiti and I felt I could safely use the metro at night. Getting there from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle was straightforward and using the public transport system was a total breeze.
We wholeheartedly agree with everyone else who enjoyed Marie Francoise's amazing hospitality. We also are grateful for all her help in getting us aquainted with her neighborhood, best metro and bus routes, the lovely breakfast and her charming company. Marie's apartment is close to the lovely Place des Vosges, and the Pere Lachaise cemetary is within walking distance. But I think we were especially fortunate to be staying there on a Sunday, since we could take advantage of one of the best markets in all of Paris, with dozens of the most amazing cheese, fruit, pastry, vegetable and sausage vendors.
Our stay with Oliver's aunt Marie was delightful in every way! She is a generous and kind person who helped us enjoy our week in Paris. We highly recommend a stay with Marie! Regards, Bryce and Nancy.
Marie is such a great hostess. She is easy and efficient to communicate with. Her apartment is very homey & comfortable. I was glad to take a nice walk with her along the river to get oriented to the neighborhood on my arrival day. Thanks to her kind help in advising the direction, I had a smooth business visit the next day.
It's very enjoyable to breakfast with her in the morning.
The apartment is just 5 minute walk to the Bastille, and easy to get to St. Paul.
I would definitely consider staying this place with Marie if I visit Paris again.
I visited Paris for a weekend. The Apartment is well situated and the next metro station is nearly in front of (250m). Marie was a great host. After a warm welcome she showed me my room (with a comfortable bed) and gave me a lot of tips what to visit. Every morning she prepared a very nice typical French breakfast.
I really enjoyed my stay. Thanks Marie!
Marie-Francoise is a lovely host who presented wonderful home-made jams each morning with freshly baked croissants and was SO helpful with her advice and Paris knowledge. She is a lovely person who was so welcoming in her home. The room has all you need.
Oliver's Aunt - Marie is a very very lovely lady, a wonderful lady to talk to. The first day as my train was delayed for 1.5 hours, she patiently waited for me and was worried where I was and called me up. She gave me a very warm welcome and showed me around the house and my room and gave me great advice on what to eat, where to go, what to do and she had books and maps all ready for me. Her breakfast preparation was no less than perfect, typical Parisian breakfast with coffee, croissants and jam and she would always make breakfast the time i requested it. Her apartment is very cosy with a nice small balcony, very clean and comfortable. Marie went the extra mile for me, when I was down with a rash that would not go away, she even gave me a cream that made it better in just 2 days when I had that rash for 5 days previously that would not go away. And on the day I left, I even forgot my most important bag and Marie hurried to call me from her balcony and passed it to me, I cant thank her enough for every thing she has done for me, even bringing me to the local market:) Marie is a superb host, I always felt at ease chatting with her about everything and she is such a sweet lady, I would never forget my first trip to Paris being hosted by such a lovely host and my stay was well beyond pleasant and enjoyable. I had a great great time staying with Marie! Merci!!!
Olivier is very informative, he replies to emails within a few minutes or hours and he's really helpful in answering all questions you might have. Marie, the owner of the flat, is Olivier's aunt. She is warm, friendly and really helpful. She made me the BEST croissants and chocolate pastries I had in the whole of France. Marie timed for the pastries to come out of the oven exactly when I sat down for breakfast. The apartment is gorgeous, centrally located to ALL main attractions in Paris. There is a metro 2 minutes walk from the flat. There are loads of cafes, restaurants and bars within walking distance and there is a great Sunday morning market which sells LOADS OF CHEESE! and leather bags, veggies, fruits and there is a great African jewelry stall with unique pieces.
The apartment is very quiet in general, but I did wake up a few mornings because i could hear the voices of small children in the hallway. But that cant be helped because it is a flat, and its normal to hear your neighbors. So if you are a very light sleeper like me, then bring ear plugs and you will be fine.
Marie is REALLY helpful. As soon as I arrived at the apartment it was 9pm and Marie welcomed me with a salad because she knew I hadnt eaten dinner AND she offered to walk with me around the entire neighbourhood. I really appreciated both these gestures as someone traveling alone. So if you are a lone traveler and want to stay in a place with a host who will be there the entire stay to answer questions and give you wake up calls, this is THE place for you!
We had a very enjoyable stay in the apartment, which is situated a few short blocks from Bastille t. Marie-Francoise was a wonderful
host,, very warm and friendly. Highly recommended. She is obviously of high integrity.
One small pie
ce of advice is to allow plenty of time to book a taxi when leaving. We would certainly stay there again.
With the directions the place was easy to find and the room was comfortable and quite. Since it is very close to Bastille we were able to explore all the famous sights by foot. Oliviers aunt Marie Francoise was a wounderful host. She is very hospitable and puts the well-being of her guest first. Besides a nice breakfast she offeres very good advice on what to visit in Paris and where to eat and after a few days we started to feel more like good friends than guests.
Oliver and his wife are really great guests. Clean, friendly and very quiet. Was really a pleasure to host them. Thanks a lot.
Nice friendly guest, was a pleasure to host.
Thanks for visiting Golden Bay.
We found you both to be very pleasant with great positive energy.

Oliver and Denise are a great couple who are warm, friendly and always on the go. They stayed for a week in my little cottage in Fremantle, during which time we all got on very well. They have a happy and positive attitude which is very endearing. I would welcome them back any time.
