Florence was our host on this occasion for 5 out of the 6 nights of our stay. On our last night Jade took over.
Florence was an amazing young woman. she spoke English perfectly, along with French and Mandarin. She was accommodating, fun and quite knowledgeable about the area and metro.
Their apartment was comfortable and homely and pretty central, being about a 20 minute walk from the Louve and Notre-Dame area, so we chose to walk pretty much everywhere.
A good base for exploring this area, particularly for families requiring kitchen facilities and the space of a shared lounge room.
A true home away from home: comfortable and stylish. Plus awesome cats! Guests comingle; Jade (the caretaker or facilitator) became our new best friend.
We will DEFINITELY be back❤️
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour et remercions Elisabeth et Joy pour leur gentillesse et hospitalité. La chambre était magnifique et très confortable, le quartier très calme et très central. Une très bonne adresse! Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié la compagnie des chats.
Elisabeth's house is wonderful. Very comfortable and centrally located, but the thing that really makes this place a home away from home is Joy. She looks after the house for Elisabeth and is a fabulous hostess. She is friendly, easy-going and nothing is too much trouble. She helped us book tickets, de-mystified the metro system, fed us delicious breakfasts every morning and gave us lots of laughs. We loved Paris and the house, but loved them all the more because of Joy.
We really enjoyed staying with Elisabeth and Florence.
A great location close to the Metro, with plenty of cafes, bistros and restaurants downstairs.
The building has a lift, which made moving our big bags so much easier.
Their home is both beautiful and comfortable, we were made to feel most welcome.
Florence explained everything about the apartment to us very well.
Our room was pleasant, and everything very clean.
Sharing a bathroom with the other guests worked OK, as there was always a second bathroom downstairs.
We enjoyed the breakfast Florence provided, and getting to know each other a bit on our last morning was a real pleasure.
Kiki, and Kiki the cats were also very cute and friendly.
Top marks for this home stay, and thank you so much for your hospitality Florence.
The entire experience was delightful, from communicating with Joy to interacting with other guests and Florence, we had a wonderful experience.
we loved the hospitality and company of the two feline roommates as well!
thanks and hope to visit again some time

This was a wonderful place to stay in Paris. It looked good in the photos but was even better in reality. Great location with loads of bars and restaurants on the door step. Only 15 minute walk from the train station and lots of major landmarks within 30 minutes walking distance. Fabulous family room - clean, quiet and spacious, I would definitely recommend to family and friends.
Feeling like at home, this made all sense when staying at Elisabeth and Florence place. For two months I stayed in Paris for work and both made of my trip a wonderful experience. The apartment and room were as described, clean, quiet and hosts were very friendly and helpful. They were flexible in any query that I had and went beyond what is expected for a host. I loved dropping by in the living room and have some conversation with the them or any interesting guest that were also in the house.
I also fell in love for the two adorable cats that wouldn’t mind some cuddles when you wake up.
Elisabeth and Florence were both very good hosts, friendly and helpful. The apartment is in a very convenient location, close to everything. Our group of 7 had a great time staying at Elisabeth’s apartment and would recommend the place to anyone who is visiting Paris. Thank you Elisabeth and Florence!
