About Me
Renting our apartments (Paris & Berkeley) has truly been an enriching experience, especially introducing people to the richness of the city of Paris, the French culture and the San Francisco Bay Area. We fell in love with the Bastille area. The apartment there is also very close to the Marais. Business and family bring us to Europe on a regular basis so having a home to stay in was very important to us. We're delighted to share it with friends, both old and new. As a green and healthy building materials consultant and researcher, it was very important for us to follow healthy materials guidelines when renovating both apartments. The Berkeley in-law is nearly net-zero energy, has an ultra low carbon footprint and very healthy materials. Both places are safe havens for anyone with allergies!

I recommend this apartment and this renter most highly! I rented this lovely little apartment for my daughter, my mother, and me for a week in May, and it was wonderful. Jan was incredibly amiable, helpful, and easy to work with via telephone and email in advance and afterwards. The terms and process for getting keys, etc. were fair and easy to follow. Jan sent a good deal of helpful information about the apartment, the neighborhood, places to see/eat/visit, and more. She even had local contacts for us should we encounter an emergency during our stay. The apartment was in a convenient location, easy access to the Metro, walking distance to several sites including Place des Vosges, a wonderful open air market at the top of the street every Sunday and Thursday, etc. There are markets and shops convenient to the apartment, including a Cat Cafe a few blocks up the street. The apartment itself is just as charming as advertised. It's small, yes, but we were perfectly comfortable sharing the double bed and my (college-aged) daughter on the sofa, the bathroom was compact but not cramped, and the living area is well-arranged. The apartment is outfitted with essentials and thoughtful conveniences (e.g. umbrellas, canvas shopping bags, a french coffee press, etc.), prettily decorated with original artwork, and nicely stocked with guidebooks, novels, and more. This was a wonderful place to stay, and I hope I get to experience it again one day. Excellent KWarren 7/5/2017 9:43:00 AM
