Everything we needed from a Paris studio with a friendly and welcoming host. Walking distance to Notre Dame, the Louvre and Musees D'Orsay. Enjoyed the local cafes, restaurants, especially the pancake cafe with the cat. Ice creams on the corner of the road, cheese shop and boulangerie. Plenty of refreshments for picnicking by the Seine. We will definitely like to visit again soon when the courtyard is complete.
Nestled in a quiet street in one of the most historical neighborhoods in Paris, this cozy little studio was everything I had expected and then some. To say that this vacation rental is centrally located is an understatement. There were many reasons why I chose this studio over any others in Ile Saint Louis. It's very important to me to stay close to the Seine River as well as Notre Dame. The experience that I had staying at this apartment contributed to a magical experience in Paris.
Stephanie offered transportation to and from the airport for a flat fee of 70€. It was way more than just ordering an Uber, but having the home owner present was a peace of mind. I didn't have to worry about having to find the entrance of the building. Stephanie and her husband walked me through all the amenities of the full stocked rental and resolved any issues that could have turned into a stress during my stay.
-very affordable for its location
-very stylish (50's retro vibe) with modern appliances(smart tv, Wi-Fi and bluetooth speaker) I was able to connect my devices with ease and move around as a semi-smarthouse (I'm obsessed with Google and its voice activated features). Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. I was even able to get a strong signal while sitting on the front porch. (FYI: make sure to always keep keys on hand because the front door does not remain unlocked once shut.) I love red & white color scheme. Plenting of LED lighting strategically placed for comfort. Stephanie is a talented photographer and has displayed here work of the area throughout the apartment.
-fully stocked kitchen. Don't be fulled by the size, I was pleasantly surprised to find everything I need to cook for two people. Appliances are modern with a retro style and make the tiny space feel like a large kitchen. Stephanie even stocked the fridge and cupboard with complimentary drinks (juice, tea, coffee, water).
-The compact bathroom feels so big with the white tiles, high ceiling and LED track lighting. Bathroom was also fully stocked and still shelving space to put my own personal toiletries.
-All information is provided in a welcome folder and the home owner is very prompt with any assistance. Also, there is a little library of books and dvds to enjoy
Aside from my hiccups with the smart tv (I think because I don't know French) this cozy apartment felt like a smarthouse. If the homeowners ever decide to put in smartlights, this place would be insane. I got a lot of work down mainly voice opportated because of the bluetooth speaker.
This place is perfect for singles, business trips or romantic get-away.
Thanks Stephanie. As long as the price stays affordable this will be my go-to rental in Paris
Beautiful studio well located in the heart of Paris, Île de Saint-Louis. I am passionate about travel and Paris. I know Paris well for having already lived here. This was without doubt the best studio in which I was already staying in Paris. Great location in a residential building, calm, quiet, with a beautiful courtyard. All equipment and furnishings are new and, comfortable.
The owner Stephanie is a very polite, helpful and cheerful person . She’s also a great photographer: the studio decoration photos are of her . Gorgeous photos of Paris.
My stay was simply perfect .
