Good location, lots of beds, limited A/C
Our group of 16 really appreciated the size and # of beds this property offered. We liked that the neighborhood was quiet, but had several restaurants and a market close by. We took Ubers to most of the attractions, but Notre Dame is about a 15 minute walk. We chose to walk several places that were even farther because the walk along the river is beautiful. The one problem we had was with the lack of air conditioning. There are only two portable A/C units - one in the kitchen, and one in a combine bedroom/game room space. Five of the bedrooms do not get good airflow, so they were very warm at night...even with the provided fans. We had mild temperatures during our stay, and it was still very warm in the bedrooms at night. Otherwise, we were happy with our stay.
Great home located near many cafes and the Metro. Perfect for large groups. Lots of beds and separate spaces. Kitchen was great to cook our own meals.
Cool Place, Great Location!!
I would like to thank Joel for a wonderful stay at our cool vacation apartment. Very clean with cool, funky (in a good way) art! We traveled as a group of 8 and the apartment was more than accommodating for all of us. The apartment is conveniently located near a supermarket, a few restaurants, and bakeries. If you don't mind walking, it isn't a terribly inconvenient walk to many of the popular sites (Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre Museum, Eiffel Tour) which we walked to each location. If you're not into walking the distance, the train is close by. It's also a very easy train ride from the airport which was also convenient. Joel was ALWAYS repsonsive to any questions we had regarding the apartment and our stay.
I did not give 5 stars only because we struggled to get the TV to work properly which Joel was notified of and immediately worked to resolve the issue. At no fault of his own, we weren't able to watch TV but luckily were able to use our computers to hook to the TV to keep ourselves entertained. Just a tip: On days where you'd prefer to relax or any unforeseen circumstance that may keep you from being able to go and see the sites, be prepared to have a backup plan to remain entertained if necessary. Regardless of where you chose to stay. To be fair, I believe that the apartment provided games and books to also keep us entertained, but our family preferred to watch TV.
Thank you again, we really enjoyed the apartment and would recommend!
Great villa for large group!
My family of 8 adults and 7 grandchildren, age 2 to 10, recently stayed at this villa for 11 nights. The sleeping accommodation was great, each family had their own quarters. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms fairly large. The house was clean with a well equipped kitchen including 2 refrigerators. The foyer is large which made it easy for arrival and departure. We arrived before check in time and were happily surprised to find the house empty and ready for us!
The location of the villa is excellent, restaurants and grocery stores nearby, safe neighbourhood close to the Bastille metro. There is a park for children nearby, the Arsenal Marina and the Coulée verte to visit at a short walking distance.
The owner was very prompt at answering my questions and checked on our stay at the villa upon arrival and during our stay. I would definitely book this villa again, very interesting composition of older and modern architecture! Thanks Joel,

Clean but lacks privacy
The positives: clean, sleeps a lot of people, W/D, close to the Bastille area, grocery store one block away, two blocks to a main metro station, big kitchen, Joel is responsive.
Negative: Only three of the rooms have doors, low water pressure, upstairs shower drains really slowly, both dryers never fully dried the clothes (had to finish drying over night using the foosball table).
Recommendations: Provide kitchen trash bags, instructions for the stove, instructions for the dryer (you need to empty the collected water - doesn't vent outside), offer a cleaning a couple times a week.
4 bedrooms have doors, the 5th bedroom is the the only one on the 2nd floor that's why there is no door. the 6th bedroom is an alcove in the playground room and therefore has limited privacy
Very nice space in a great area of Paris.
This property is very well suited for groups of travelers. Very nice space.
