Review 3150: Owner, The Paris Garrett


Review by Silvana from US

studio apartment, 11th arrondissement, Paris


10/27/07, 1 week


This apartment is in a great location. One block from a metro and a couple of more metros very close by. We were surrounded by bakeries, grocery stores, bars, cafe, laundromat, ATMs, almost anything you need. We felt very safe and pleased to have rented this apartment.

Nearby Amenities

Everything is out your doorstep.

The House/Apartment

This apartment is located on the sixth floor, lots of stairs to climb but it's worth it. It wasn't only the apartment but all the details that were taken care of by David (the owner). He made the place feel like home, we almost felt like Parisians.

We didn't have any problem with noises, just once in a while a car honking or a police going by but it wasn't often or enough to really disturb.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

All the furniture was in great shape and the apartment was very clean. The bed was awesome; I think it's more comfortable than my own bed! It has a small window right on top of the bed and we would watch the stars while falling asleep.


As I mentioned before the bed was awesome! The place was always nice and warm. The bathroom was small but had everything you need, including a hairdryer. We always had hot water.


The kitchen was just the right size. We had pots, pans, plates, corkscrew (very important for those fabulous French wines). And David was so nice as to leave staples such as oil and salt. We cooked several times in that kitchen and no problems whatsoever.

Problems or Bonuses

All was just like a giant bonus, we couldn't complain about a single thing. I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Paris, which I really hope to do.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

David and Aralynn are just wonderful people. Even when we didn't have the chance to meet them because they were traveling, we could contact someone else there to help us if we had any problems, which we didn't. They also called us to make sure we were okay and happy with the place.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I would totally recommended! Of course, remember that you have to be willing to climb the stairs and that it is not for more than two people. This apartment was virtually perfect in every sense, location, amenities, cleanliness, comfortable, etc.

Things to do in this area

We love "Au Petite Garage", a small bar half a block away. The owner is the bartender, the one who washes the glasses, the DJ. It was great; we were the only tourist there. And the price was very reasonable; it was awesome!
