comments on our Paris Short term rental
and Vacation In Paris service
Below are comments that our guests have either sent to us or left in the
apartment log books. More comments can be found on the individual
property web pages.
We enjoyed our stay in the
neighborhood. We found a few very good restaurants nearby and of
course everything we needed was always just around the corner. It
was a great neighborhood location and exactly what we wanted.
Jim & Vicki L. Concord, CA
Your information packet was
very helpful, especially the maps. We found the location to be
excellent for us. The children loved walking to the Eiffel Tower at
Chuck, Kathy, Marika, & Chris M Boulder, CO
First of all I would like to apologize for returning the key to you
so late. There was a misunderstanding between my husband an myself
as to whom would return the key. Our stay in Paris was absolutely
fantastic and the apartment's location could not be more convenient.
We soon got to know all the patisseries and indulged in all the
Linda S. Die Boord, South Africa
We like being near rue Cler. Everything was fine and worked well with our
two kids. We enjoyed the apartment much more than a hotel- we usually stay
in the 6th in St Germain des Pres, but we really like the new neighborhood
and hope to return soon. Jan B. Rancho Santa Fe, CA
everything went very well and we had a great stay. Jean Michel was most
helpful and a very congenial host!
Ron F. San Diego, CA
admit that I was extremely apprehensive before arriving. You can imagine,
booking something over the internet has it's inherent stress levels! I WAS
SO PLEASED!! The apartment is in the back of the building, one flight up,
tow big windows looking out into kind of a yard- you would never know that
you were in a big city, so quiet. The neighborhood forces you to pretend
that you've lived in Paris all your life. One block toward the Eiffel Tower
and one block to the left is Rue Cler. The best outdoor food market in the
area. The street is closed to traffic and France's choice is there for you.
You have a great place: made one feel like Gene Kelly should be singing in
the courtyard. Jean-Michel was attentive when we arrive and has a good
command of English- very helpful individual. We had a great time, great
apartment- thanks and we'll be back. Sandy Z. recommended the apartment to
us; we'll maintain the tradition.
Randy P. Rochester, NY
way to spend our 1st trip of 2000. Now this time we had a "home" to return
to. We felt this location in Paris was the best and the apartment was just
about perfect with all in working order.
Clarice & Keith A., Grantham,
Two weeks in a lovely apartment in my favorite arrondissement...
What could be bad? Rue St. Dominique was the perfect home base for seeing
the city---walking, shopping and eating. Enjoy! Enjoy!
Julie V, Boston,
A great place to experience the best of Paris. It was easy to live
"la vie Parisienne" here. We had our special bar, boulangerie, traiteur,
tabac, etc. We became part of the neighborhood! Cannot wait to return.
Margie S. & Bob S., Cincinnati, Ohio
We had a great time in Paris.
The apartment is beautiful, and in an excellent location. Everyone in the
neighborhood was very friendly and very helpful.
Lissa T., Carissa D., &
Emily O., Washington, DC
We loved it here! Very quiet & comfortable.
A home away from home.
Rob & Marguerite T., Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
We brought our kids and enjoyed staying in an apartment. It was much
more practical and cheaper with breakfast brought back from all the
bakeries. This was our first apartment and we really enjoyed it. Nice to
have extra room, refrigerator etc. The apt. was comfortable and quiet.
The Blocks, San Diego
A tranquil retreat in a city full of people...
Loved the light, the silence and the still atmosphere. Relished the privacy
and slept in as late as we liked.
Melinda Welton, Melbourne, Australia &
Edmund James, London, UK
Very quiet apartment. It's hard to believe
it is so close to the center of Paris.
Mike, Marcy & Andrew McCabe,
Milford, MI, USA
The 7th Arr was definitely convenient for most
sight-seeing is within walking distance. It's a wonderful apt., neighborhood
The Dannys NY
Apt. wonderful, comfortable would return.
Very convenient to everything that counts.
Nancy & Hank A. Old Lyme,
Great time, great friends, great apt. great wine. It doesn't
get any better than this.
Jack & Shellie B., Madison, CT. USA
apt. is at the top of the list for convenience...
Don R. & Graham M., Las
What a great location! This is so much better than a
hotel. Mary Schubert & Doug Wicks.
We had a terrific time. We were
very comfortable. We felt safe. Thanks very much. Leslie H. Gainesville, FL
We had the best time in Paris. Loved the apartment and can't wait to go
back. Shirley H., Monte Sereno, CA
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were very
pleased with the apartment. The rooftop terrace is the key.
Michael F. Trenton, NJ
Hello, we just returned to the states, after staying in
your Les Halles apartment. We had a wonderful time, the apartment was very
nice and in an excellent location. Morgan L. San Francisco, CA
loved the place, great location, good restaurants. Athena S. Neufchatel,
The apartment was very nicely decorated and the beds
comfortable. The apartment is airy, cool, and receives good sun. Thank you -
we had a wonderful time, John was lovely and the apartment was perfect. Edye
S Mahopac, NY
The apartment was charming, exactly as advertised.
Kathy S. Kitchener, Ontario
I loved the apartment; it was convenient
and charming. The neighborhood was of course quite incredible. Kitchen was
small but very usable...One thing I thought was a little meager were the
pillows.... very thin and not too comfortable. Perhaps these are normal
French pillows... I'm used to something a little more plush. But overall
everything was really wonderful and I would be very enthusiastic to stay
here again, and I hope to revisit soon. Very happy with the whole
arrangement.. many, many thanks to all concerned
Ronald Z., Toronto,
We have arrived home safely from a wonderful trip to Europe and
Paris was all we had hoped for. The apartment was terrific, very
convenient and comfortable. It was a pleasure to stay there, the
arrangements to collect the key worked very well and at the end we
left both keys on the kitchen table as instructed by the Paris
contact on Monday 16th October.
Hank V., Preston, Victoria
Dear you all
Thank you very much for your message and for your
assistance regarding the accommodation in Paris for my family. I am
sorry that as I had to leave earlier, I was not able to write in the
log book and could not send comment earlier.
If I will be in Paris again with friends or family, I
would like to stay there again! Also, it would be my recommendation
for friends who look for that type of accommodation in Paris.
Thank you again and good luck!
Dr. K., London, England
We have just returned home from our stay in Paris
at your referral location of a studio apartment at rue de Carmes. It
was wonderful, we have enclosed a copy of your survey as requested.
John was great. It was a pleasure to meet him and we want to thank
him for all his assistance and great tips for visiting Paris. The
apartment was great!!!
Marcetta D. Odessa, FL
'We had a
wonderful time in Paris and the Latin Quarter Studio was friendly
and well-equipped.' Stephanie & John S., Lima Peru
you for a wonderful time in Paris. The Latin Quarter Studio is in a
fun and lively area that hooks you from the start-- it was nice to
have a home away from home...this is the first stop on our honeymoon
and we now have the memory of a perfect beginning!' Karen & Joe M.,
Richard, Thanks for the privilege of spending
some time (too little!) in the Latin apartment.
We had a great week and really enjoyed the studio. We look
forward to a return.
Ray M. Las Vegas, NV
Had a great
time in Paris- Latin Quarter Studio worked out great.
again, Emily S. Seal Beach, CA.
The apartment is in a great
location and well maintained. The packet you mailed was very
thoughtful & helpful! We had a great time during our stay in the
Scott & Karen M. Moraga, CA
What a great
two weeks we had here in the Latin Quarter-- we loved everything
about the area and will definitely recommend the studio to others.'
Lewis' from Los Angeles, CA
Apartment was great. Nice having
bits of things in the kitchen: 2 kinds of vinegar, mustard, 2 kinds
of salt, some cereal, and so on. We bought napkins that will last
for weeks, a small but real contribution.
One advantage of your
key method that we hadn't thought of--we were caught in the Italian
labor strike. Our scheduled arrival of 3:00 pm turned into 1:30 am,
with other times predicted along the way. We've rented apartments
before where we met the person--it would have been very difficult.
Even a lot of the medium and small hotels would have had trouble
with 1:30 am. As it was, we found the place, staggered in, showered,
drank a glass of wine, and went to sleep in the very comfortable
Just a quick note to thank you. The apartment was as
expected and my wife and I had an excellent time. We will have the
key in the mail to you this week. Ray M. Point Claire, Quebec
We can’t begin to tell you how much we
enjoyed our vacation. We went to Paris, London, Rome, and spent the last two
weeks in Spain. We should have spent two weeks more in Paris rather than
Spain. We definitely needed more time in Paris. Without question, Paris was
our very favorite. In fact we are already planning on a two week visit next
year and hope to stay in the same apartment.
The apartment was
located in a prime location for us as we loved all the museums and could
easily walk to all our destinations.
Again, our warmest thanks to
you for all that you did to make our visit so great. The information packet
was most helpful. Wish everyone had given us such meaningful information. It
was good to know that you were always there to answer all of our questions,
it made our trip the “BEST”. Thanks again Rick.
Becky J., Holland, OH,
Returned last night, will put the keys in the mail today. Had a
wonderful time, the rue Herold location couldn't have been more perfect. Our
next trip will will likely be planned around its availability!! Also met
John and had dinner at one of his local recommendations, Chez Bibi, which
was wonderful and very reasonable. The current exchange rate certainly makes
everything even more affordable. Thanks again!! Lynn B. St. Louis Park, MN
We enjoyed the apartment very much, as its situated in a great location.
It is accessible to numerous attractions and could not be more central.
Nevertheless, it is quiet, allowing privacy.'
Mr & Mrs Wilmot,
The location of the apartment was fantastic...thank
you for a well appointed and comfortable 'home away from home'.
Kaye Family Croydon Park, NSW (Australia)
'The apartment worked out
very well for the four of us. The location proved to be excellent...when we
return we would certainly stay here again.'
The Kirkpatrick Family,
Enjoyed our stay in the "City of Light". Thank you Vacation
In Paris and John for making our stay a very special one.' C. & M.
Location is perfect!! Amazing quiet within
apartment as well as between them. We really appreciated having the wine and
snacks for the first might as it was almost 7PM when we arrived.
B. St., Louis Park, MN
'We loved the apartment, roomy and comfortable
and quiet. The area is perfect for walking to all the great sights of
Paris. ' Mary K. and Dottie M., Phoenix, AZ
'The flat was
great...the furnishings and facilities just what we needed.' Jon W., Oxford,
We had such wonderful time in Paris-the
apartment was wonderful- truly enhanced our experience. I will
definitely use your company again (and tell friends) - my husband is
very anxious to return to Paris and stay in the apartment- so
perhaps next spring. I will be very happy to talk to anyone who has
questions re: the property.
We never did venture on the metro
but we found the #21 and #27 buses fabulous for 1 euro (they do make
change) and they run on a very regular basis.
Eileen F., NY, NY
The apartment is beautiful, functional, and ideally located.
You are very generous to share it with us! Brian and Susan" They
also added, "PS-Vacation In Paris (the Internet rental company) was
a pleasure to work with."
Susan B. Columbia, MD
We had a
wonderful time in the apartment in Paris. Great location, easy to
get around on the Metro, and it was a fully stocked apartment. Truly
a home away from home.
Tom & I just returned from our honeymoon
last night. We absolutely LOVED the apartment. In fact it was hard
to leave for the second week in Dublin... We will definitely
contacting you to stay in this apartment again- we can't wait to
return. Thanks so much for getting the key to us well in advance of
our departure. It was such a relief to have one less thing to worry
about with the wedding... I couldn't have asked for a more romantic
place to stay in on our honeymoon.
Sincerely, Chris and Tom T.,
Thank you for the confirmation about the keys. We
will look for the refund check in the mail.
Just wanted to take a
moment to tell you how impressed we were with this entire process,
and especially with the lovely little apartment in Paris. It was
everything we were hoping for, and more. The location was just
perfect for us, the apartment was VERY quiet, very well-equipped,
and very "homey". We appreciated all of the many guide and reference
books John had left on the bookshelves.
We loved Paris so much
that we are hoping to return again next spring. If we do, we will be
contacting you again and will certainly recommend you to anyone else
who might be traveling to Paris (though we'd be a little bit jealous
of anyone staying in "our" apartment!).
Thank you for helping
make our visit to Paris so memorable.
Sandy W., Fort Wayne, IN
Excellent location - you could spend the week in the apartment
and never have to travel more than 500 m to buy all the food and
wine you need for the week. It was very convenient. Great access to
the metro to head off to see the attractions.
The manager was
very helpful, he provided me the things we requested in a timely
John M., Bolton Ontario, Canada
The apartment was great! The only problem was the shops on rue
de Levis were so good we didn't dine out as often as we had planned!
We had to sample all the pastries, baguettes, meat and cheeses along
with the wine. There were 4 of us in the apartment and it was no
problem at all- plenty of room. We will definitely recommend this
apartment to our friends. Thanks.
Galyn & Harriet P., Mesa, AZ
Ou se-trouve le vrai Paris? Right here on rue de Levis! In one
week's time we sampled every single patisserie, boulangerie,
charcuterie, boucherie...enjoyed a wonderfully authentic Parisian
experience. We look forward to a return visit to this apartment.
Thank you for your hospitality.' Jackie and Steve A., Amsterdam, The
We had a wonderful time...the apartment is
lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed rue de Levis, with all the markets
and shops. This is a great area!' Frank and Patty R., Sebastapol, CA
We found the apartment and the neighborhood charming. The short walk
to the metro was a great way to see all the sights. A wonderful
experience. We kind of feel like we should stay forever!
Karolyn J., Mesa AZ
Just a quick note to say how much we
enjoyed our stay in Paris. The shopkeepers in the street were all
very friendly and helpful, And the apartment was great. Paris is a
beautiful city and definitely the highlight of our trip. Thank you
for your assistance in making it easy for us. We left the keys
inside the apartment when we left as requested by John. Please pass
on our appreciation to him for the wine.
Regards from Charles
and Maggy, Corlette, NSW Australia.

time...staying in an apartment is a great way to vacation here...a

Cynthia, Chicago, IL.
Paris was wonderful and the
apartment just perfect!
Bob, Elizabeth, Sarah & Hannah K.,
We had a great time in this well located and
comfortable apartment. It is so much easier and comfortable being in
this type of living arrangement vs. an hotel....all in all, a great
time and great apartment.
The Gregory Family, Boston, MA
We greatly enjoyed the apartment and location...
Josh & Danny, Melbourne, Australia
It's been a pleasure to be here.
This is the perfect alternative to a hotel stay. We have enjoyed the
sound of the street, the smell of Paris, and the nice local people.
We will recommend this apartment to our friends - and this will not
be the last time we stay in Paris in one of the apartments you rent
out. It is so much nicer to go to the boulangerie and buy a pain and
2 croissants instead of going down to the restaurant in the hotel in
the morning. This is the way of staying in Paris!!! Thanks for a
very nice week! P.S. Please don't hesitate to use us as reference
for this apartment." Lou Larsen, Denmark

We loved the ease of
dealing with your company. My husband, Ronan, is French, but he said
it was much easier dealing with you than it would have been dealing
with a French rental company or landlord. Thanks for the great
Kim L., Arlington, VA
It was a lovely studio
and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. After living on Rue de Bac
@ St Germain, we especially appreciated the quiet location! We will
certainly use your services again and will recommend your firm to
our friends. (Do you have the same service in other locations?)
Thanks for accommodating us on such a short notice.
Couldn't close the windows in the living area.
Information left by Martine was very helpful, particularly the
details of the after-hours medical service (SOS Medicines). English
language TV station (e.g. CNN) would have been good. Having the
internet was extremely helpful. Proximity to Monoprix supermarket
was very handy. The apartment was very quiet and one felt secure.
Vacation in Paris staff were extremely prompt,
friendly and helpful. The instructions for access to the apartment
appeared overwhelmingly complex, but in actuality were very simple.

Phil M., Masterson, NZ
Bonjour Vacation in Paris
We are back from our trip and we had a fabulous time!
Thanks so much for your support and guidance. The apartment was very
comfortable, a great place to return to after a day of walking
Paris. We felt very "parisienne" doing our shopping in the local
grocery stores, boulangeries etc.... The location was just fabulous!
It was quiet but very accessible to great sites locally and being
right off the "1" Metro line gave us access to really everything!
There were two things that could have made the apartment
experience perfectly smooth:
1. Keys to the doors. Perhaps
the instructions could add which direction you turn the keys. We at
first had trouble with the first door, but once we figures out you
turn the key counter-clockwise that was easy. The apartment door was
difficult. In fact we called the owner because after 10 minutes of
trying we had no luck. He did talk us through it and we did get in,
but it was challenging for the first few trys. After a few days we
got the hang of it.
2. Shower instructions. The instructions
that are written don't adequately explain how to turn it on. Again,
we fumbled and got it to work, but truthfully we were never really
sure how we got it to work :)
We would definitely stay there
again, so not big issues - but thought that you might want to know
about these two items.
Again - thanks for all your great
customer service. I have put the keys in the mail today, so you
should have them in the next few days.
Kristen & Jeff W., Newtown, PA
Great location. Easy access with
the keypad. Will never use a hotel when an apartment is an option.

Thank you for a wonderful time
in this lovely apartment, so close to the farmers market. We saw and
tested the best of Paris. It was great!
Yelena S. , St Paul. MN
Thank you for an amazing stay in a beautiful apartment. It
was more than we could have ever asked for. Paris is undoubtedly one
of the most gorgeous cities in the world. D.S., Chestnut Ridge, NY,
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the Rue Cler
neighborhood and loved the fact that we could come home and have our
food from the market for a relaxing meal and unwinding in the
evening. I wish all our accommodations could have been apartments.
Your apartment exceeded my expectations. We felt safe and
comfortable - well, I will recommend you to everyone I talk to.
Thank you for a great 6 days!
Ruth W., Reedsburg, WI
The apartment was wonderful! The
location was very convenient to the metro, and close to the shops
and some great little cafes. We highly recommend it and will
definitely do this when we come back to Paris. It was so nice to
have breakfast/coffee in our pj's and the ability to cook when we
wanted to. Feel free to use us as a reference any time!
Just wanted to thank you for the quick service on short
notice. We really enjoyed our trip and loved the apartment! We put
out a positive "plug" for you on TripAdvisor.com and hope that
others will enjoy the accommodations as much as we did. One tip you
might offer to future visitors is the "carte orange"-- weekly metro
pass that's good each Monday thru Sunday for unlimited travel within
Paris. It was a great bargain. You sure don't want to drive in Paris
if you can help it.
Linda O., Frisco, TX
The apartment is
just great! We had a wonderful time feeling as though we lived here.
Everything is so comfortable. It's just great!
We had a
wonderful time and packed as much into 7 days as we possibly could.
The apartment is perfect for the overly ambitious tourist. We simply
could not keep still, but it was so nice to have such a cozy, well
thought-out place to come "home" to. Thanks for everything!

ourselves immensely. It was a privilege to have stayed in such a
Kathy D., Longwood, FL
Thank you Richard. We were very happy
with our vacation rental and with the excellent service we received in
booking it. Hope to book again in the not too distant future. Will provide
feedback as soon as we are unpacked from our trip!
Kind regards, Maggie
N., Richmond, VIC, Australia
The apartment was more than adequate and in
very nice condition on our arrival. It provided us very comfortable
accommodations for the duration of our stay. It's convenience to the St
Michel-Notre Dame metro stop was unparalleled and offered us quick and easy
access to almost everywhere we wanted to go. Although the Latin Quarter's
night life is more than a little raucous, the placement of the apartment
made for quiet restful nights. The comforter did have a stain and the
glasses required washing before use but these were of little consequence. It
did take us a while to determine the orange switches in the dark stairwells
were for the lights and not doorbells which would have been handy earlier in
our stay. Internet access was simple (the CAT5 marked "internet" helped) and
fast in spite of the statement in the Web Doc that service wasn't in place.
All in all the apartment improved our stay immensely and we look forward to
booking it again!
Ben S., Seattle, WA
We were very happy with the
apartment on Rue St. Jacques. It was an absolutely astounding bargain at
$120 per night. Everything about the apartment was average or above at well
below average price. For a cost conscious Paris visitor, this is an
unbeatable value. We loved the amount of room, even though it was a studio.
We have stayed in Paris hotel rooms at twice the price or more that one
could touch 3 or 4 walls from the bed. Not here. Even the shower was not as
small as some we have tried to use. Everything is modern, clean and
There is broadband internet service too. Just plug the
cable under the phone table into your laptop's Ethernet port and your on the
net, no configuring necessary. I loved getting up in the morning, starting
the coffee maker and going out for croissants and a baguette so my wife
could join me for breakfast when I got back. The boulangerie is less than
two short blocks away. This is a great neighborhood for being in the center
of Left Bank tourism--right on the edge of the 5th and 6th arrondisements,
as described in the webpage. It is also fair to say that this little area
between Rue St. Jacques and Blvd. St. Michel is not typical of the 5th or
the 6th. It is a small area of dense tourist shops and restaurants. Walk a
block or two in either direction and you are out of the that area and into
areas more typical of the 4th, 5th and 6th. Be prepared to handle the
stairs--44 from the courtyard to the door of the apartment. They are narrow,
tapering, old and one of them--number 17 from the bottom, we call it the
trickster--is domed, rocking you off balance if you are not ready for it.
The experience of using Vacation in Paris is superb. They make it
easy to get the information, execute the transaction, and feel confident and
cared for. The day before we left I called for the first time to see if
additional information was available. I again felt like the Vacation in
Paris people cared about what the were doing, were knowledgeable, and were
sincerely interested in our having a great time. We can not say thanks
Howard M., Louisville, KY
We have loved exploring a very small part of Paris from this perfect
location. We enjoyed "the sights" but even more loved discovering the cheese
shop, wine shop, chocolate shop etc in the streets in the neighborhood...."
Henrik A., Cherrybrook, NSW, Australia
Thanks for this lovely apartment.
We were very comfortable and the little kitchen was a big bonus. Loved the
cheese shop down the street....

“We have been coming to
France for many years with our children. During that time, we’ve rented

of it is ingeniously equipped with everything one needs for comfort. Genial!
We enjoyed getting to know the very interesting quartier, where everything
is available in a short walk distance. It can’t get much better than this.
The Jones, Indianapolis, IN, USA (7/11/2006)
wonderful time we’ve had! A return to a city we love and a first visit for
our children. We found the apartment central, well-equipped, a welcoming
home at the end of an exhausting day sightseeing and shopping”

this apartment. Its amenities are very good also. We really appreciated the

“This was our young
daughters’ first trip to Paris. The location of the apartment and amenities
surrounding it were just perfect for us. All of the parks and playgrounds we
wanted to take them to were easily accessible from here. We had a wonderful
few days in Paris and are looking forward to returning soon”
family, Atlanta, GA, USA (4/22/2006)
“The apartment was perfect! This
was our first trip to Paris with our children and it was wonderful to show
them the Parisian way of living. We loved the local shops – the fromagerie
was a favorite! Great way for our family to spend the week. Thank you!”
The Linsteys, Chapell Hill, NC, USA (3/24/2006)
“We have enjoyed our
week here. The apartment is quiet, beautiful and well equipped. It is a
lovely, convenient neighborhood. We also loved the bistro St. Germain and
the chocolate shop Richard. We had a wonderful mom + daughters

“This trip represented the return to Paris for some and a
first time for others. Each time the city seems to share a new secret. The
housing was divine, a perfect location for every Parisian landmark”
Isquiths, NY, NY, USA (3/8/2006)
Location was better than expected. Superb
Boulangeries and good proximity to Bois du Boulogne. Ideal location for
running Paris Marathon!
Second time we've used V in P. Would
definitely use again.

appreciate your prompt responses and accurate information about what to
expect of the apartment.
For two older women, who do not like bus tours,
and need more than a hotel room to be comfortable, this apartment in Neuilly
Sur Seine were ideal. We had plenty of space, no need to rush out in the
morning, we could cook some of our own meals, and we found walking in the
neighborhood quite enjoyable.

Sara P., Midway, KY
We had a tremendous time and were well
pleased with the apartment and how it was equipped. We became well
acquainted with Metro line 1 and loved the convenience of riding out to our
little quiet apartment after a full day in the surprisingly crowded (for
August!) city. We can't wait to come back and will definitely hope to rent
the same digs.
Dealing with your company was easy and foolproof. The
only suggestion for the apartment details would be to point out the lighting
on the wall immediately as you come through the outer door into the
courtyard. We did not spot that and the first time we got home after dark,
we stumbled in total darkness through the courtyard to the building. Again,
due to the darkness, we were unaware there was a lightswitch right at the
base of the stairs so we climbed both flights in the dark. Perhaps naive of
us, but we were awfully glad to find them after a few days, and after
purchasing a small flashlight for our after-dark returns. Also, thanks for
the info on the ground transportation which worked out well for us. You may
want to include some information on Navigo, since there is little online and
most sources for metro transportation listed "Carte Orange" which of course
is only part of the process. We had some frustration trying to sort this
out. Finally, thanks for the info on ATMs; truly invaluable. We met some
Americans who did not know about this and were dealing with traveler's
checks and the exchange kiosks, they were happy to hear how easy it was to
simply withdraw euros at the ATM.

Tremendous apartment, great service here and in

Morgan responded instantly to our call. I've already recommended your
company to several friends. It was great arriving there and finding the
apartment actually exceeded our expectations. We'll be back!
Paul LB, Toronto, ON
You cannot find a better location! It is on a busy night street, but
that didn't seem to affect our sleep. It is so close to the metro (two
blocks tops), and you can walk to most any of the big sites. Would come back
here in a second. So many wonderful places; The Irish Pub, Greek Gyro's to
go, right across the street, Peres et Filles (Father & Daughter at 81 Rue De
Seine, has wonderful French food) and the grocery store is right down from
the restaurant. Paul's for breakfast, and wonderful shopping all around.
Across Boulevard Saint-Michel are more eating spots with fixed menus. Second
time to Paris and loved this apartment and working with Vacation In Paris!
Maureen M., Plymouth, MN.
We had a wonderful time in Paris
and once again loved our stay in Apartment 122, 30
St. Andre des Arts. I will be sending out the
apartment keys before the day is out and will let
you know with which carrier they were sent along
with tracking details.
We were delighted to
see that the apartment, at least the second floor,
had been painted since our last stay in February,
2009, along with some repairs to one of the walls. I
think the same should be done with the first floor,
but overall, the apartment still gives a very good
appearance and was in good shape when we arrived.
Considering how often it is rented and the wear and
tear it gets, this is no small accomplishment.
Everything advertised in the apartment, at least
that we used, worked well. The apartment, and the
building, is very safe and secure.

manager, Joseph. We informed him of two very minor
repairs. He was willing to send a repairman while we
were in residence, but we told him that this was not
necessary. We contacted him prior to our departure

past the 9:30 AM departure time to accommodate our
late flight. He is very responsive and a gentleman.

This perfect slice of Paris could not have been any better. Madame would stay again
in a heartbeat! The directions for the washing machine were a bit
confusing - perhaps European machines are different from their American
counterparts. We had one load spinning and rinsing for more than an hour. On
the up side, the clothes were squeaky clean.

Re: ID 122
Dear Mary Ellen:
I'm returning the keys to the Paris apartment and just wanted to tell you
what an incredible place it was. The owner, Madame Duboc, called to see how
we were doing and I was so happy to be able to talk to her so that I could
tell her myself how much we loved her apartment. It was absolutely beautiful
and it is in the most incredible neighborhood of Paris-close to
transportation and terrific restaurants and cafes, movie theaters, you name
it. It was truly amazing. We had great strolls around the Quartier and got
to see so many amazing sights and just soak up Paris. We could not have been
We appreciated all of the detailed information you provided to us about the
apartment. It was extremely useful and we respected everything communicated
to us. I also filled in the guest book in the apartment and let Mme Duboc
know (again) how much we loved the apartment.
Please feel free to use my name as an email reference. I hope to be booking
this apartment with you again very soon!
Very truly yours,
Linda S, Berkeley, CA 94708
We spoke with the apartment manager Thomas Spencer. Thomas Spencer was great to deal with.
We arranged to meet him at the apartment and pick up the keys in Paris. We
called him from the airport and he was waiting in the apartment when we got
there. He was helpful in orienting us with the apartment and neighbourhood
and I was comfortable that he would be available should I have any problems
or require any other help (which thankfully we did not end up requiring).
The apartment was as described and as pictured on your website (which in my
book is 80% of the battle), so I was very happy with that. Thomas was very
helpful in telling us about the neighbourhood (groceries, shops and things
to see) as well as giving us the information we needed to succeed in the
appartment. There was also an information book that was put together by the
appartment owners which was also helpful. Just for the benefit of future
users of the apartment (please don't take these as complaints), the booklet
could be expanded a bit in terms of the name of the wireless router and the
related password. It just made it a bit confusing in getting it set up.
Otherwise had a great time in the apartment, and we would definitely use
your service again.
Dear Susan and
Thank you for the wonderful few days that we spent in Paris - my wife and
daughters were hopelessly in love with it and we are already making plans to
go back there one day! Also thank you for the excellent manner in which you
accommodated us in the apartment, we could not have asked for more. We got
safely back to South Africa late on Saturday night, 12 April, completely
exhausted but very happy.
On this topic - did the owner/manager find everything to be in order as was
required after we left? If so, what is the next step to be taken to recoup
the $150 refundable deposit? Please let me know.
Jannie F., Alberton, South Africa
The apartment was wonderful. The
view was perfect and we had a fantastic time! Thank you very much for
everything! The place was spotless when we arrived and a bottle of wine was
waiting for us! The apartment was very well equiped and personal. Unlike
many apartments I have stayed in before, it wasn't a hotel-like apartment
but a very homely and cozy one. We will definitely stay with you if we visit
Over all our experience was very positive. The
apartment was nice, and the location was excellent. I
appreciate the fact that the pictures we saw online
represented accurately what we found at our arrival. No
unexpected surprises there.
I called the owner because
the TV was not working properly. She called back in less than
5 minutes, and explained very clearly how to reset the
equipment. She also offered to stop by and do it herself, but
that wasn't necessary. The explanation was clear and easy to
follow, and the TV started working immediately.
doing a great job. It was great being able to book the
apartment here instead of waiting until we got there, not
knowing what to expect. Everybody was very helpful both
here and there. Thank you so very much

The apartment was lovely, well-equipped, and a

the neighborhood. Also, having a washing machine was a major
plus (even when it takes hours for a single load).

We enjoyed the apartment and the neighborhood. We picked up

We’ve had a fantastic time in Paris and
hope to return soon. WE were really at home here in this comfy
and very cool flat. Coming home after our loooong days was made
easy by the thought of our comfy abode. Montmartre is such a
great place. Just out of the way enough but not so that we were
out of touch. Thanks for everything. Kind regards, the Reade
We were a little concerned when we first
arrived, the stairwell was a bit scary but the flat was great
and the stairwell became part of the charm of this building. My
husband is 6 ft 3” and banged his head, a lot, on the door
between the living room and kitchen. Loved opening the windows
and watching the activity on the streets. Montmartre is a
wonderful area to stay. We traveled everyday to different areas
of the city, but always enjoyed Montmartre the best. When we
visit again we will stay in the same area and apartment if
possible. Thank you and cheers. Dorée & Randall F., Vancouver,
July 6 – 12 2009
We LOVED it. It was
exactly as represented and the location was perfect. Montmartre
is such a lively neighborhood with excellent shopping and
boutique restaurants. We adored every second and having an
apartment as a home base made life much more serene I do want to
say that there was noise out on the street on Friday and
Saturday night, but I think that's part and parcel with the
location we were in. It wasn't enough to keep us up late, and
the fact that we were two or three blocks from the metro
Abbesses and were surrounded by yummy restaurants and fun
shopping absolutely made up for it. I would recommend
vacationinparis.com to ANYONE, and I would recommend that
apartment in particular. Rest assured, we will use you again.

location, and outlook. We had a lovely time “what a perfect way
to stay in Paris”
Cavanaghs, Mores, Koutcloulisis – Sydney,
I have rented quite a few apartments in Paris, and this one is
definitely one of my favorites. It was perfect. It was clean,
nicely appointed and had charm. No complaints. and great
location for walking. I loved having windows both in the living
room and bedroom and both with pleasant views!
My daughter and I agree that our stay in Apt. 241 was flawless. The
apartment was exactly as pictured on the internet with no surprises
whatsoever. The bed and the sofa bed were super comfy. The bathroom was
immaculate with a great shower. We were extremely pleased with everything;
the location, the building, the neighborhood, the proximity to
transportation, not to mention the delicious bakery that is on the way to
the metro station. An A+ experience. We are looking forward to our next
stay. Also, the same comments would apply to apartment 261, which my son
rented at the same time. Overall, a great experience for all involved.
One of the fears I had about renting private property was what would we do
in the event of a problem, such as a broken hot water heater. I was
pleasantly surprised that my fears were unwarranted. I did have the
occasion to call the property manager, Morgan, who graciously walked me
through the process to connect to the internet. He promptly answered his
phone and was very patient. Morgan was kind enough to call back a few days
later to make sure that everything was ok, which, of course it was. It was
very reassuring to have a phone number for a back up person in case Morgan
was not available. I have learned that my worries were baseless.
I wish more companies were more like yours. I spoke several times with
Debbie who was always helpful. Each person I spoke with is an
asset to your organization. VIP is a marvelous company to do
business with. I will highly recommend VIP any time I can. Thank
you for a great 10 days
Tina H. and Dianne C., Mesa, AZ
The apartment exceeded our expectations in every way! The apartment and the location could not have been any better. We loved the apartment - modern appliances, comfortable setting, nice decor. The apartment was spacious with lots of storage spaces and the beds and pull out couch were comfy.
The location was ideal - right in the Latin Quarter but on a relatively quiet street. Everything in the apartment worked beautifully from the washer and dryer to wi-fi. We absolutely loved the apartment and would highly recommend it. We met with Morgan who was very helpful and showed us everything we needed to know the day we arrived.
VIP was a pleasure to work with.
Some people warned us about renting an apartment oversees but VIP was a pleasure to work with and the apartment exceeded our expectations. I will highly recommend VIP and this apartment. I hope to return soon! My family had a WONDERFUL time. The location was perfect-near the metro, Notre Dame, everything was easy to access. Everything in the apartment was exactly as we expected from the description on your site.
There was also a detailed guide book in case we had any problems
The manager greeted us and showed how to operate the various appliances- stove, washer/dryer. He was very helpful.
This was my 5th time to Paris. On each trip, I have stayed in hotels. The apartment made everything so much easier. I plan to use vacationinparis.com for future trips.
Lynn M., Omaha, NE
Don't look any further. This apartment is perfectly located,
aesthetically pleasing, wonderfully comfortable - newly
renovated so everything works. The wi-fi is fast, a patisserie
around the corner, a terrific (and cheap) Vietnamese across from
the apartment, cafes - but the windows are double glazed so it's
very quiet. The sights and shopping of Paris are at your
doorstep and the owner goes out of his way to make sure you are
comfortable...and Hemingway lived and wrote in the building!

This rue du Cardinal Lemoine apartment was spectacular. Just
right for two of us. The owner has done an incredible renovation
- the kitchen and bathroom are wonderful, the bed is extremely
comfortable and the electronics are first-rate. Steps from the
place du Contrascarpe, you'd expect noise, but the
well-insulated windows keep the apartment very very quiet. A
great find. Looking forward to our next visit.

Kevin and I thoroughly
enjoyed our stay at your beautiful apartment on Rue du Cardinal

of the special amenities - Nespresso machine (yes, I want one!),
washer/dryer unit, free wifi, free calls to USA, excellent cable
(plus your tip about the local jazz station), high quality
shower, comfortable bed, and overall quiet, relaxing ambiance.
We also appreciated your time and attention to our arrival
orientation, as well as your responsiveness to our various
inquiries. We will definitely want to stay at the Hemingway
apartment every time we're in Paris.

What a great location this was..metro
stops, cafes, shops, short walk to the river and the apartment
was perfect for the two of us and our 15 yr. old granddaughter.
Nicely furnished and decorated. Had everything we needed and the
owner was a great help getting us set up with our laptop and the
facilities...plus walking us around the neighborhood to get our
bearings. Staying in an apartment is a great way to enjoy the
city.. We recommend it highly.
Rita C., Saratoga Springs, NY,
USA - April 2010
The apartment was perfect for our two
week stay in Paris. The check-in process was easy and the owner
was very helpful with explaining the workings of the place. The
furnishings were clean and recently renovated, plus there was
plenty of light with great Paris views. Our daughter visited us
for a few days, and the sofa bed easily accommodated the extra
person. As a kick, the phone was able to make free calls to the
US. We highly recommend it.

Ford, USA - January 2011
We are a family of four and
loved our stay at the Rue du Cardinal Lemoine. The apartment was
very clean and comfortable. The pull out bed in the living room
was very comfortable and large enough for our two children (10
and 13). The location was terrific, only a few blocks from a
couple of Metro stops. The area is charming and vibrant with
lots of cafe's and restaurants around. Tony, the owner, is a
terrific guy and was very patient waiting for us to arrive from
the airport (the traffic was awful). He was also very thorough
in explaining the workings of the apartment and made sure we had
the wifi working on all our devices before he departed. We would
definitely recommend this apartment.
Steven B., Thalwil,
Switzerland - April 2011
We loved our little
apartment on Cardinal Lemoine. The apartment was well-designed
and charming. The photos on the website exactly represent the
apartment. It was cozy, but adequate for a family of three (with
one teenager on the comfortable pullout sofa in the living
room). The air conditioning worked well, and the double-glazed
windows kept out any street noise from the local cafes. The
bakery on the west side of Place Contrescarpe was amazing, and
the specialty food shops on Rue Mouffetard were quite
convenient. A nice option if one wants to eat in. Pantheon and
Luxembourg Gardens were very close. Easy walk to two different
Metro lines. All in all, a very positive experience. Great fun
to sit at the dining table and watch the world go by on the
cobblestone street below. We highly recommend this apartment!
David M., Mill Valley, USA - August 2011
was fantastic and ideally located. Our contact was generous in
allowing us to enter early due to our early morning flight. He
was also extremely informative and provided great advice and
information regarding the area. Thanks for the stress free time
in Paris, we have already recommended this site to others and
would use this site again in the future.
