The apartment was as expected and even better. Marc was very helpful and directions were great. Lots of dishes and the layout was great. The best of all was the neighborhood. There are grocery stores and a frozen meal store (Picards) within feet of the apartment. The elevator is tiny, 2 or 3 people but was great and was always available. The best metro is Javal and is about 7 or 8 minutes walk away This can get you to anywhere in the city. Walk to Eiffel tower is about 30 minutes but is quite easy and very safe. There are no less than 3 places to get bagettes and baked goods within 1 minute from the apartment door. We were very pleased with the rental and don't let the deposit scare you off. Marc is just protecting his interests and it was refunded within hours of us leaving. There were 5 of us staying and there was lots of room. The wifi was very good and were rarely used the TV.

“Exactly as advertised. Would stay again.”

My three friends and I stayed in Marc's apartment for six nights. This was the first time I have ever rented from a private person, so I was really nervous about the logistics, such as deposits and cash payment. Marc was extremely accommodating (including his patience with my 3-hour arrival delay) and the stay went very smoothly. I also appreciated his responsiveness during the booking process.

The location is very convenient. At least two metro stops are within a comfortable walk, and the neighborhood is saturated with bakeries, cafes, and shops. I was very pleasantly surprised by the brasserie on the other side of the roundabout: after the rest of my party arrived late in the evening, we chose not to go far, and the food across the street was excellent - I had duck breast - as was the service.

Not sure how I would feel if I were returning home alone (it is a residential neighborhood, so there is not much foot traffic at night), but in a group of four or sometimes just two females, we felt very safe.

The apartment is a one-bedroom, and fit 4 of us comfortably. The sheets and towels were clean, and the beds quite comfortable. All appliances worked well, and the kitchen was well-equipped.

I would not call it a luxury stay, but it is not advertised as such, and the price, IMHO, is appropriate for the quality. The description is consistent with what I've experienced, and having no real negatives, I'll give it five stars.

The only difficulty we experienced was when the four of us split up, but only one person had the key: took some coordination to return at the same time. I did not ask for multiple keys, so just a note for my future self.

Marc was a good host, and I would stay there again, whether traveling with friends, or family.

A great apartment in a terrific neighborhood! The apartment was clean and in a quiet building. Check in with Marc was quick and easy. He was extremely helpful and provides a book with information of the immediate area including markets, restaurants, bakeries, etc. The apartment is within a 10 min walk of 3 metro stops and a RER station. Great supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, and bakeries very close to the apartment. Absolutely worth the money for a family of 4, 5, or 6. Staying there made a great vacation even better!

From the moment we made the booking for the apartment, Marc was always responsive to emails and questions.
On arriving in Paris by train, Marc's instructions for getting to the apartment were easy to follow helping us to get to easily (finding it's location first on GoogleMaps also helped with directions and recognising the apartment location).
Marc met us at the apartment, and gave us the rundown of the apartment itself as well as suggestions for getting around the city.
We loved the location of the apartment (walking distance to the Eiffel Tower and closeness to metro for the Palace of Versailles), and the nearby selection of patisseries and cafes were simple awesome (we still miss them).
Marc also helped us get a taxi to Orly airport which was very much appreciated.
We have no hesitation in recommending Marc and his apartment to anyone, and if, or when, we can return to Paris we would choose his apartment again.

Thanks Marc for your apartment and for also helping to make our time in Paris a good one.
