Valentin was a fantastic host. Easily reachable over the holidays and we were escorted around the neighborhood by his charming and informative friend Pierre who let us in! Such a great location. Clean, quiet and a stunning view of the seine. It's location just a few blocks from the Bastille and the marais was a great oasis.
Can not wait to return.
Second time staying at Valentin's place. He was away from Paris at that time but had arranged for a friend to welcome us, they were both great in communication and really nice. Super clean and comfortable apartment with everything you need inside. You can rest assured to have a high quality experience when you stay there.
Valentin's apartment was as advertised. It was a great place to stays for our trip to France. Pierre Henri met us at the apartment. He provided useful information and showed us around the apartment. It is in a wonderful central location close to sites and the Metro. If you are going to rent velib bikes, there is a bike rack just around the corner. Every morning we had breakfast on the balcony. It was a wonderful stay. My only criticism is that the dryer is slow to dry clothes. I give the place 5 stars. Worth the rental price. Thanks for sharing your place Valentin!
Valentin was away on business so after our initial (and prompt) booking we dealt mostly with his friend Pierre-Henri. Pierre was so kind and helpful the entire time we were there. He met us at the apartment on our arrival, gave us some tips about Paris which we used, and booked a taxi for us when we left. The apartment is clean, the bed very comfortable, and the kitchen is fully equipped. We were also glad to have a washing machine to use. The flat is in a convenient neighborhood and my husband and I found it a good place to stay on our first trip to Paris. Because the apartment is right on a busy street the living room was a little loud when the window was opened, but it was late Sept so it wasn't really a problem for us. The bedroom, however, is at the back of the flat and there was no noise at all with the window open. This is a great flat.
Myself and 2 girlfriends returned yesterday from Valentin's perfect apartment in Paris, and have only wonderful things to say about our experience! We booked fairly last minute and were so thrilled when our reservation was accepted! Communication prior to our visit was prompt and Valentin and his friend Pierre-Henri were incredibly welcoming and helpful throughout our visit. The apartment is just like the photos, if not better! Very clean, organized, and spacious for 3 girls. The location is great-- in a quiet area of the 4th with a short walk to the metro, and a twenty minute walk to the shops of Le Marais. It was a wonderful place to come back to after longs days of walking through Paris, and we loved waking up to the beautiful view of the Seine from the balcony each morning! We had stayed at two different airbnb locations prior to our arrival in Paris, and Valentin's place was the all-around BEST by far. I would definitely recommend this apartment to travelers, and would love to stay there again some day!
Thank you so much for everything Valentin, and also Pierre-Henri for your assistance throughout our stay! It was a pleasure to meet you both, and we wish you the best of luck in New York!!

A retired couple, we spent three very enjoyable days at Valentin's apartment. It was a great home-base to explore Paris. The apartment was spacious and had a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, including a washer/dryer and a dishwasher. The lift was very convenient for carting our luggage up to the apartment. Nice view overlooking the Seine. Noisy terrace street-side, but very quiet bedroom and kitchen in the back. Easy walk to Notre Dame as well as two Metro stations. Six or seven block walk to the better grocery stores and bistros. We felt very safe walking in the neighborhood all day and evening. Excellent communications with Valentin confirming our arrival and giving detailed instructions about how to get there. Valentin was away when we arrived but his friend, PierreHenri, served as a gracious host and provided us with detailed advice about places we wanted to visit.
Valentine was a wonderful host and was very flexible upon requests made throughout our trip! He was traveling so his friend met us at the apartment to give us keys and instructions. We were a few hours late because of a delayed flight and he was very kind and polite. Made us feel like it was no big deal. The apartment itself is clean with comfortable beds. We were a group of 4 adult women and it fit our needs just fine. Only a few suggestions for Valentine would to be to get more towels and newer ones. Also, no wash clothes were provided. The beds also did not come with a top sheet, just duvets and bottoms sheets which we thought was odd. But, he is a male so we kind of understood :). Apartment is near the subway to make it easy to get around. The Paris subway system is very complicated though and took some time for us to understand. Overall, we had an awesome trip and Valentine/ Henri Pierre were very gracious. Loved the Nespresso machine! Great trip! Thank you!
Response from Carolyn:
Hello Kristina, I am sorry that you didn't understand that the duvet already has a sheet on it. Of course I put sheets on the duvets and wash them for every guest (sounds obvious to me).
The reservation was canceled 28 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I was very very satisfied with Valentin house.
The Seine river could enjoy Paris's romanticsm as to the immediately before.When arriviing at Paris and it was very kind meeting him for the first time,He treated we cheerfully.
All ones were all convenient,and his house was cozy.
He was the host who the suppression is good.
We would like to remember him for long.
The chance staying in the house wishes to come to Valetin's house to next Paris tour.
We loved Valentin's apartment. It was exactly as advertised and a great home for our holiday in Paris.
Valentin himself was very helpful. He allowed us to check in early (930am) which was great as we were exhausted after our long flight. He then showed us around his apartment and gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations.
Valentin was an impeccable guest and a pleasure to host.
