This apartment was literally a dream come true. We lived here for a full academic year, 2018-2019 - 2 parents and 2 young daughters, on academic sabbatical from the US. Every single day, I miss the apartment - it is an absolutely gorgeous, fully renovated space (Lance Lee, the landlord, is an architect) combining beautiful, historic Parisian style with modern decor. It’s in the best location you could imagine, steps away from Metro Abbesses. And Lance was the most amazing landlord ever. Anything we needed, he went out of his way to provide, even helping us with matters ranging from with tax issues to navigating Halloween in a non-celebrating city. I’m not exaggerating when I say that I think about our home in Paris on a daily basis, and marvel at our luck in finding this apartment. We are so grateful! Excellent MTS 3/5/2021 9:58:00 AM
Avoid this Landlord at all costs. There was money issues with this Landlord from the beginning. I know this property is a continual rental - but it has four reviews from 2012 and 2013. Yet there are none through May, 2018. While at first I thought the experience would be positive - within the first month, after asking to visit the apartment to measure windows - I came home early in the evening to find Lance Lee sitting at the table using the internet making himself clearly at home. This was way beyond measuring windows which takes about 15 minutes max. I didn’t know him well and I found this unprofessional and inappropriate. Second, based on this ‘window project’ - I was told that such window work would be done over the holidays when I was away - hence the break in lease while such work could be done. However, Lance NEVER mentioned that he was going to rent out the place instead during that time. - I moved my stuff out and I did not clean floors because as I understood it - construction guys were coming in. Also, there was an issue with the sofa - but with Lance living hours away - I didn’t make a big deal about it because it was a costs to him that was not an emergency. It was easily fixed. A day after I arrived in my hometown of Chicago for the holidays - I get ranting long insulting emails asking me why the place isn’t cleaned better and why didn’t he know about the sofa. These emails were filled with highly emotional and accusatory content whereby Lance needed me to immediately send him 100 Euros so he could clean the apartment to his level of acceptable because he WAS renting it out after all. Due to the content in the emails I was convinced that any and all interactions with Lance Lee was going to be problematic. I wasn’t going to trust him with my deposit as I consulted with a French attorney and give him the run down on what had happened. In turn it was decided that I would settle up with Lance when I moved out as knowing his issues with money, I didn’t trust him. My fear was that there was going to be some long bogus list of charges and therefore it was best to hold the money and settle up in the end. All worked out fine and he returned all remaining funds to me - I didn’t owe him anything.

----Reply from listing owner:Well! This is a rather unfortunate, libelous and insulting retaliation to a review that was left upon the tenant's departure regarding damage and withheld rent. I believe the original review is posted below, from 2017. As a review feed is a rather poor forum for the settling of scores, I would simply like to say that I have been a proud member of this community as a proprietor and as an academic since at least 2012; other reviews of the apartment in question – and myself – are available in the Air BnB community ((www.airbnb.com/rooms/4472378 – www.airbnb.com/users/show/23203873)) and through Lodgis.com. So far, the reviews have been at least honest and I encourage anyone with misgivings who may still be interested in the apartment to consult those (slightly more expensive) platforms before being to swayed by the vitriol in this one individual commentary. I am naturally at your disposition to answer any questions regarding the circumstances of this past rental

We stayed in this apartment for three months in the fall of 2012. The apartment is as good as they come and the pictures on the website are exactly as we found it upon our arrival. The flat is very well appointed and equipped and it has everything you wish for. The compact kitchen may feel small but once you start cooking it is obvious a cook designed it—as small as it is, it’s a dream kitchen. The living/dining room is very comfortable and cozy with a large table in the dining area and a comfy sofa(bed) in the living room. The pull out sofa bed came in very handy for the occasional visitor and turned out to be really comfy. Our landlord, Lance, went out of his way to make us feel at home from the moment we stepped into the apartment. He was there to greet us and show us the ropes and had many good tips and hints for us about the neighbourhood. Had it not been for the fantastic flat in a great neighbour hood and a terrific landlord our visit in Paris would certainly not have been the success it was. Thank you!

We had an amazing 2-month stay at this beautifully renovated apartment in Montmartre. We perused the cobblestone streets of the wonderfully eclectic and artsy surrounding neighborhoods, and with the métro mere steps from our front door, were able to easily explore the rest of the City of Light as well. We have recommended this apartment to friends, and would absolutely stay here again as well. Fantastic gem of a place in Paris! Excellent UCI 11/21/2012 2:13:00 AM
I had a wonderful month at the Rue Briquet address. The owner met my cab on my day of arrival and helped me up the stairs with my suitcase. When I arrived at the apartment, wine, cheese, milk, and cereal awaited me, which was wonderful. He showed me around and answered a number of questions throughout the month I stayed there. I feel that the photos accurately represent the apartment. It is very chic with nice furnishings, a comfy bed, and beautiful artwork and dishes. The bedroom is small, and the closet is a little hard to get to, but otherwise I was very satisfied. The stairs might be difficult for the elderly, but I didn't have a problem with it. The apartment is right on a Metro line, and although you might have to change lines, everything is easily accessible. I found the owner very easy and fair to work with. The price is very reasonable if you compare it with other listings and the month-long stay really allows you to get familiar with the area. I had a great experience.
