Comments:This apartment is very well located with points of interest walkable in all directions. The neighborhood felt safe. The apartment itself is very good and was large enough for our family of 3. It is cheerful and contains many interesting books, guide books, etc. There were a few things that were not in top shape but they were not a big deal. For example, the handle to the bathroom door was very loose and kept falling off. The sofa bed is not terribly comfortable (according to my daughter) but, then, they usually aren't.

The sheets and doona were in excellent condition, as was everything else in the apartment. The doona was beautifully warm, thank you. Thanks for uor Parisian home away from home! We hope to come for our third visit one day soon!

Comments:We really appreciated having a key and not having to wait for someone to open the apartment for us. We loved the roominess of the apartment. We truly felt at home there. The neighborhood is great. The apartment is in a wonderful location, very central to many of the sights. We walked most of the time and occassionally took the metro, which also is close to the apartment. Since it was our first time in Paris, we didn't know if taking the RER from CDG to the apartment would be a good idea, but we did it and it couldn't have been easier. The bottle of wine is a nice extra and we enjoyed playing French music in the CD player in the evening. We couldn't have been happier with our experience there! It was so much nicer than a hotel room! We would definitely recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to rent it again! My experience with Vacation in Paris has been great. I planned on going in July 2013 but my husband had a serious accident two days before the trip and I had to cancel. I am so glad I got to Paris this year. My time in Paris was absolutely perfect and so was my experience with your company. Merci beaucoup!!

Comments:This was an awesome location, apartment, and experience. We knew it was a 5th floor walkup so the stairs were not a surprise - it added to the whole Paris experience. The apartment is in a lively area of town so outside noise was expected. We loved how close the nearest Metro stop was and Notre Dame was only a few blocks away. I would definitely recommend this apartment and VIP services to friends and family for future vacations. I hope to be back in Paris in the next couple of years. I would definitely stay in this apartment again!

Comments:The apartment is very well located and suited our needs and budget. The bed was very comfortable, the large windows provided excellent natural light and ventilation, the wifi worked well and the washer/dryer was perfect in the circumstances. Our only disappointment was the basic provision of kitchen utensils/accoutrements. For some strange reason, the people who let vacation properties either do not want their guests to cook, or think that they are unable to cook. We have had the same problem previously, through VIP in Paris and others in different locations. We love to cook and Paris is a perfect place to do it! Please ask owners to provide something more than the absolute basics. Not everyone is satisfied with a bowl of pasta.... See above on kitchen implements.

Comments:They were doing construction work across the street. That was the outside noise. One of the neighbors (wall sharing, same floor) had a very loud party until 6:00 am. Very difficult to sleep. One dish towel was not enough. I would have like access to a dust mop and/or vacuum to clean while we were there. Paint was peeling in bath. Other that those requests, we loved the fact that we did not have to meet up with someone. The apt was much larger that we anticipated. Airport transportation was great! We did not received the wine at our request. We don't drink. It would have been nice to have something substituted.

Comments:Cleanliness was good, but it would have been nice to have access to a broom or vacuum as dust built up during our stay of 2 weeks and it would have been nice to be able to clean a bit ourselves. Clearer instructions on how to use the washing machine would have been appreciated. We ruined some clothing on the first try because the water was too hot and it was difficult to decipher all the symbols and temperatures. The handwritten instructions in the apartment book were hard to read and not thorough. Overall, the apartment was great! The Internet router really needs to be updated though. The apartment book itself could probably use a bit of updating and organizing. Overall it was helpful, but some of the information seemed old and out of date (businesses that no longer exist, stuff like that). We were very happy with our experience and would definitely use your services again and recommend you to others. The information and photos on your site were extremely accurate and there were no unpleasant surprises. Just and enjoyable stay. Thanks!

To have the opportunity to stay in an apartment in the heart of Paris for their first trip to this incredible city was an extraordinary experience for all. The close proximity of the apartment to Paris' most iconic places as well as its location in a wonderful neighborhood filled with fabulous restaurants and specialty shops allowed us to enjoy Paris from not only a tourist's perspective but as a resident, albeit a temporary one, as well.

Would recommend this apartment to anyone. We would use your service again if traveling to Paris. The mat on the living room floor makes the floor slippery. We pushed it to one side during our stay as it was potentially dangerous.

Comments:This is a great apartment. This is our 4th apartment rental in Paris through VIP and our third in the Marias. We love the Marias and this is our favorite of the 3 apartments so far. It has a nice feel to it. It has a generous entry hall that everything circulates off of and it gives the apartment a very roomy feel. The bathroom is off tghe entry hall, not the bedroom, so this is a good apartment if you are using the fold-out sofa for more people. The bedroom is large and comfortable and the overall light and air circulation is great. No elevator, but that's not a deal breaker in our minds. Keep up the good work!

Comments:In general we were very comfortable with the apartment. It did detract having the construction going on, on the exterior of the building. Some days it was a bit noisy. The workmen were very considerate. We did appreciate being notified ahead of time and also the 20% discount on the rent. The shower was marginal, because of warm and cool cycles and the heat radiator in the living room did not appear to be working. Once we turned up the heat on the water heater, both shower and temperature in the apartment improved. The kitchen could use a couple more pots, but other than that it was more than adequate. The washer and dryer worked great.

Comments:This apartment was very well located and extremely cozy and comfortable. The Marais area is so interesting and colorful, and the many shops on Rue Rambuteau were excellent for both breakfast and dinner supplies. Walking to any of the sights in Paris from the apartment was very convenient, and even the four flights of stairs to climb after a day of sightseeing were not a problem. We would have no hesitation in recommending both this apartment, and Vacation in Paris, and will certainly tell anyone who wants more space than a tiny hotel room that this VIP apartment is an excellent option! Our family of four had a wonderful time in Paris and would like to commend VIP for the excellent service they provide. Regards from the Ruth family, Adelaide, South Australia The hot water in the shower was very unreliable - not sure if this can be fixed but it was a bit chilly on a cold morning. Apart from that everything else was very good. Thank you.

Comments:Everything was parfait. I was there with my two adult sons and we found the apartment very spacious and charming. The neighborhood is close to everything and has an abundance of "Vieux Paris" charm. Many great cafes, boulangeries, groceries. Quick walk to Notre Dame. Loved every minute. Only suggestion: The shower was a bit cold. Otherwise, fabulous. I'm so glad to have discovered the idea of renting an apartment in Paris. I went to school at the Beaux Arts de Paris, speak French, have family there...and had never realized that I could rent an apartment instead of staying in a hotel. I found the people at your agency to be very friendly and extremely helpful. I would certainly use your service again.

Comments:Wonderful, as with our previous ViP experience. Indeed, we visited friends who had rented their apartment through a different company because it was a little cheaper and they agreed they got much, much worse value. I hope your business continues to grow and prosper. I've used three other businesses when you've not had a suitable apartment available and I will always look for Paris accommodation through you as a first option. One small thing: two smallish towels in the bathroom is perhaps not enough. why do you require the reservation number in order to complete this form? It's difficult to find because it's not on the Word doc you send, I had to trawl through old emails to find it. Normally such a requirement is imposed by bad businesses trying to avoid customers getting through to them, which is not the case with you!

Tiresome to walk up the stairs without lift. Kitchen oven dials have worn out temp gauge so I couldn't tell what the temp was (to cook). Water heater constantly would click on and off, and being next to bedroom, would wake us up whenever it would turn back on. Overall however, we loved the apartment and location!

Comments:The apartment was perfect for us. Centrally located and nice and bright. The living space was generous and comfortable. We enjoyed having the space to come home to after a day of exploring. The only thing I would add, because I love to cook, is maybe have a good knife in the kitchen. One of our reasons for an apartment is the ability to shop with the locals and go home and cook up a French meal! Which we did. We found that all the markets were friendly and very helpful especially to those of us who are trying to remember their high school french from a long time ago. The apartment is in the Marais district that sees a lot of activity. However, because the apartment in on a quiet side street there is very little noise which is a relief after exploring the city all day. There are markets of every variety just around the corner and one of the best restaurants in Paris, La Gaigne, is right down stairs. This apartment is a perfect place to spend a week in Paris.

Comments:While the apt was ok; it was not up to the standards we had seen with other rentals from Vacations in Paris. Simple repairs/updates are in order: the shower curtain was moldy; the toilet seat was unattached to the toilet; it was not possible to use the telephone - the service was always over subscribed; we had no kitchen linens supplied; and I could go on. We would use your service in the future. We loved the apartment we had rented with friends in 2008.

Comments:The apartment was in a perfect location and was spotless and clean and was a fantastic way to spend time in paris instead of a hotel. We intend to come back and stay there and would recommend this over staying in a hotel. Thank you for your help (esp Jan) when we thought we would be have to remain in Paris due to the volcano ash. Jan quickly got back to us with options to rent another apartment. I think it was also Jan who recommended us to stay in this apartment and what

Comments:Great apartment in an excellent location. Rue Rambuteau, which is literally about 10 steps from the front door of the building, has bakeries, restaurants, grocery stores, bottle shops, pharmacies, and just about anything else you'd need in a two-block area. A few minutes away, by foot, are more restaurants. The Metro stop is about five minutes, and Notre Dame is about 10 minutes. Staying in an apartment is much better than staying in a hotel. You'll find yourself buy groceries, hitting the bottle shop, stopping by the bakery--in other words, doing what typical Parisans do. It greatly enhances your vacation. Very clean and professional rental experience. We will check out vacationsinparis.com first when we plan a return visit--which will be sooner rather than later.

Comments:We were really pleased with the apartment and the whole process overall and value for money. Just of couple of little things that will assist you to continue to offer high standards for this apartment. i) After 2 weeks the apartment was very dusty. I guess it was a lot of dust coming off the couches/mats etc. ii) The bathroom is looking a bit weary with the paint coming off the walls. iii) Could not really understand how to use the oven. Could not see any instructions but may be helpful to provide some (if they were not already there). iv) The toaster may need to be replaced with a newer one. Had to hold the lever down to cook the toast and sometimes it then clicked in automatically. v) The plug in the wash basin sink did not work. Had to remove the plug to allow water to drain. vi) Probably peculiar to Paris but we could never get the water in the shower/bath to be very hot. Water was hot coming from the kitchen tap and wash basin but not shower/bath (water temp only just above luke warm). Ended up transferring water from wash basin into bath so could have a hot bath. There was a ironing board in the apartment which was really useful. When I enquired about one before I left, was advised the apartment did not have one.
