person found this review helpful

My 9 year old daughter and I enjoyed a few spring days in this lovely apartment. We loved the elegant and cozy atmosphere, with it's colorful artwork and many mementos and interesting objects from the host's own travels. The beds and linens were high quality and super comfy. The bath and shower were clean and stylish, also with quality linens. In the kitchen, the hosts have included everything that you could need to take care of some simple meals, make coffee or tea, toast a croissant ;) The apartment is in a secure building, located in a quiet, elegant neighborhood which is just a short walk to the Eiffel tower, lovely parks, the list goes on and on... Rafic was the best host!! He provided us with maps and books, advice about places to shop, eat, relax... DO NOT MISS the car tour which Rafic offers, it was one of the highlights of our trip!!! We toured the city at the perfect time in evening, saw and photographed so many of Paris' most important monuments, churches, bridges, etc, lit up at night, and Rafic told us all about the history, architecture, neighborhood distinctions, customs, and poeple...My daughter returned home telling wonderful stories about the city that she wouldn't have been interested in otherwise, and of course I learned a lot, too. The tour really brought the city to life for us!

Thank you Rafic and Jasmine for sharing not just your apartment, but your love of city of Paris with us! We will never forget it!

“Disappointed with experience”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

As others have mentioned this apartment is well located, clean and interestingly decorated. Rafic met us and provided details of the flat and location - we didn't meet Jasmine during our week's stay. Unfortunately we found the kitchen too small and the stove too temperamental (English instructions would be helpful) to utilise the wonderful local market produce as we had intended. The bathroom was also very compact. The door key was a nightmare - too heavy and hard to open - and we were locked out on one occasion - luckily Rafic was home but he had trouble getting us in. However for us the biggest issue was that we arrived very jet lagged from Australia to discover that the apartment below (connected to Rafic) was undergoing major renovations that included jack hammering and constant banging from 8am to 6pm! Impossible to rest during the daytime and the stairway and entry were covered in dust. We had not been pre-warned about this and no reduction in rent was offered. Further Rafic found it necessary to enter the apartment on a number of occasions, including once when we were not there and once with a tradesman who totally ignored us even following me into the bedroom. We felt a total lack of privacy. Sorry not the Paris experience we had hoped for.

Hello Julia and Ron,

First of all, we want you to know that we are very sorry to hear that you have had a disappointing experience during your stay with us and we deeply regret that all these trouble happened at the time of your vacation.

For the sake of appropriateness, we want to offer you a partial refund on the rental cost, if this can restore a little bit your disappointment. We'll call you this weekend to find a way.

For 4 years that we welcome travelers, this is the first time that our guests have to live so many unpleasant events. We hope that you would believe that all of this is completely beyond our control. Also, It is not our practice to enter the apartment when it's busy, but to repair some things, we really had no choice.

The entry door and the heater in the bedroom are now repaired and the apartment under renovation of our neighbor is almost done. The instructions were in the drawer. For your information, the kitchen and bathroom are considered good sizes for a 50 square meters Parisian flat in a 100 years old building.

Jasmine really regrets not to have taken the time this week, because her dad was in the hospital at that time.

We hope to have the chance to see you again one of these days under better conditions.

Meanwhile, we wish you all the best.

Warmest regards,

Jasmine and Rafic

“Excellent location!”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Very nice apartment with wonderful access to the metro and several very good restaurants. Highly recommend - Le Bistro de Gaspard (turn right out the front door, around the corner and it is across the street) and La Romantica (turn left out the front door, down the street and across the park, on the corner).

Rafic, our host med us downstairs as we arrived. Our driver called ahead to let him know we were on our way. Green Shuttle is a excellent way to get to the apartment from the airport. Rafic gave us an overview of the neighborhood before taking us up to the apartment. He then spent time showing us how thing worked in the apartment and gave us highlights of Paris. We were very happy to get this insight.

Rafic also in informed us that he would not be available during our stay as he was traveling to visit his family. He assured us that his wife Jasmine would be home so if we had any problems or wanted to do laundry she would be able to help. Unfortunately, we never met or saw Jasmine the entire 10 days we were there so it made it a little awkward to ask to do some laundry. However, we did find a self-serve laundry on Rue Chavert that is very close to the apartment. You will need to bring your own detergent.

Other than the laundry situation, which was not bad since we put a couple of loads of laundry in and went up to the corner bistro,had a drink, came back switched the laundry to the dryers and went back had another drink. Not a bad way to relax and get some clean clothes.

We have already told friends about the apartment and would love to come back some day and rent it again.

“Delightful apartment and hosts”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We absolutely loved our 10 night stay in Rafic and Jasmine's lovely apartment. It is extremely comfortable and our son (10) very much enjoyed all of the artefacts they had collected on their travels. Rafic and Jasmine are wonderful hosts - kind, charming and very interesting people. The apartment itself is compact but is in a great, quiet location in the 7th district near the Invalides. The breakfast provisions and coffee pod machine were a thoughtful addition. The sofa was a good size for our son, but would probably be too small for anyone older (or taller). Thanks Rafic and Jasmine for a wonderful stay - we will definitely recommend your apartment to friends and would love to return ourselves the next time we are in Paris.

“THE ONLY WAY TO EXPERIENCE PARIS”
Reviewed February 19, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

STOP!!!!! If you're looking for an apartment in Paris...Stop looking now. This is the place. What a fantastic experience!! We were met by Rafic upon our arrival and what a wonderful man he was. Helped with our luggage and explained in great detail how everything in the apartment worked, which was a huge help. The apartment is just as it's described only better. Perfect bed...loads of room...great shower. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!! Not one complaint at all.
