Our stay at the apartment of J Yves and David was wonderful. The welcome was great and timely. Our hosts have been very kind. The house was fitted with all necessary things (sheets, towels, detergents) as well as equipped with appliances and multimedia devices. Our children were excited to be there (the stair to the bedroom was not a problem as our kids are over 7 years). I definitely recommend staying in this house.

Was a very pleasant stay - beautifully decorated apartment. Walking distance from restaurants but you have to grab a cab if you want to go to any of the "tourist attractions". Hosts continually in contact with us to make sure our stay was comfortable - will recommend this apartment to anyone!
Airbnb, july 2015
We had a love stay at this apartment even though we arrived in the middle of a Paris heatwave. The place has a basement unit that looks like a cave and it was the perfect retreat to keep cool. We were greeted an shown all of the amenities. The neighborhood is conveniently located near two Metro stops, so you can get anywhere. It's also walking distance to the Marais district and Notre Dame. We would highly recommend this place for anyone's visit to Paris. Our only caution would be for people with mobility issues, as their are two steep sets of stairs between floors.

In short this apartment was amazing. The property managers and owners have really thought of everything to make your stay as smooth and easy as possible. They followed our train status and even though we were delayed a few hours, someone was at the apartment waiting for us to arrive and explained everything. They also called cabs for us when we left and made sure we were loaded and taken care of completely. A few things that we found to be pretty awesome... - Everything in the apartment is top of the line. Huge smart TVs, a big refrigerator with an ICE MAKER, a coffee maker with a 15 cup pot, comfy beds, and an easy place to put out trash as it accumulates (which it did quickly with 6 adults and a baby). - There is a big binder with all of the user manuals for everything in the apartment - a huge help for us as Americans trying to figure out European/French appliances. - The metro is just around the corner and very easy to find. - The apartment is located at street level (a huge blessing after dealing with an apt in Venice that was on the 4th floor and no elevator available). - There are a number of restaurants and shops nearby, as well as a co-op right across the street, that had a great selection. - The neighborhood was really nice, and it was just a short walk to the Pompidou Center and Notre Dame. - The Wi-Fi worked great A couple of things to note (not complaints, in general we had zero complaints)... - There isn't air conditioning, and thankfully we were there during a time when it wasn't too hot outside. There are a number of high quality fans placed throughout the apartment though, and they helped make it very comfortable. - The bedroom and bathroom setup is a little odd. Which can be expected when old buildings are retrofitted for modern living. It wasn't an issue for us, but only one of the bedrooms can be completely closed off, and the only toilet/bathroom is located on the upper level through the open bedroom - which was a hike in the middle of the night for a couple of us who were sleeping all the way down in the media cave. - As I said earlier, we had 6 adults and a baby, and that was a bit of a stretch for the apartment. There are two big beds in the bedrooms on the top floor, but two of us slept on a couch and a futon type "bed" in the media cave that got to be a little tough by night 3. Definitely not terrible (and the cool temp of the basement level cave room was awesome for sleeping), but again just something to note. We loved staying here for the most part, and would absolutely recommend it and stay here again!

J.Yves and David have a fantastic place. It's central to everything and has great transport access. The apartment itself is lovely, well decorated and very cozy. We felt right at home immediately. David and Mathilde met us at the apartment and showed us around, told us how everything worked and let us know the closest metros and supermarkets. It really helped us get our bearings. The house manual is also extremely useful. Any emails and requests we had were answered quickly and helpfully. We would not hesitate to stay here again, it was extremely enjoyable.
Airbnb, may 2015
A big surprise after opening the front door. We had some expectations based on the photos but still this was not we would expect seeing the facade on a rainy afternoon. A warm welcome! Best thing was kept downstairs! Beautifull art and lighting inside. Location perfect. Parents could easily go home, kids on there own in Paris. Thanks for a perfect long weekend.
Airbnb, may 2015
What a great place! J.Yves & David have done a great job putting their home together. Modern & cozy, it's the kind of place you want to be in to call it home when away from home. They have everything organized in the "house manual". Had never seen anything like that. Really clean & well furnished. Great location! We did it all by walk. We had a super welcome when we came in. They really pay attetion to details and make you want to come back. Loved everything about it!
Airbnb, february 2015
It was a great trip for us and we enjoyed it to the max. The apartment was clean and tidy and exactly how it is presented in the pictures. It is strategically located near the Strasbourg - St. Denis metro station and by that close to the main attraction points of the city. Easy to walk to Centre Pompidou and around Marais. Mathilde was kind enough to help arrange transportation and make us feel welcomed. We recommend Le Parisien for a cool neighborhood joint across on St. Martin as for the stylish fab Anahi better book far in advance! All in all we'll stay there again next time if possible!
Airbnb, january 2015
Muy bien ubicado, limpio, confortable,sin ruidos. Tiene todo lo que necesitas para pasar estancias largas o cortas. Y lo mejor es David el dueño, que está pendiente de ti en todo momento. Hace que te sientas como en casa. Volveremos.
Housetrip, october 2014
Superbe appartement qui a fait de notre séjour un havre de repos après les kilomètres de marche faits pour découvrir Paris!!! :-D Un accueil chaleureux de la part de Mathilde qui nous a permis de se sentir bien dès les premiers instants. Une adresse bien située et bien déservi par différentes lignes de métro. Merci de nous avoir ouvert votre demeure!
Airbnb, october 2014
This apartment was absolutely amazing! Not only was it in a nice area, it was also very close to the metro stations. The decor was phenomenal and the house was filled with big screen tvs hooked up to the entertainment system. They even had a computer there that was accessible for guests to use, which came in handy for checking the weather or maps before leaving for the day. They had a large bathtub and separate shower, as well as an all-in-one washer/dryer (I didn't even know those existed). The downstairs was like nothing I have ever seen before. Inside the cave was a great room for hanging out with friends before a night out and also a nice place to go to after a long day of site seeing. The hosts were very easy to talk to and coordinate with check-in and check-out. They had champagne and orange juice chilling in the fridge to welcome us. I highly recommend staying here. Split between my 6 friends, it was extremely affordable and well worth every penny for how nice it was.
Airbnb, july 2014
An ideal location and residence. Firstly the location. It is central for walking South to Notre Dame and Latin Quarter, at an angle to the Louvre, easy access to the backstreets in the 1st, 2nd and 10th arrond. and also near to Montmartre. The Metro is 3 mins walk away. There is a small supermarket 1 min away you can get most things needed for breakfast and lunch and dinner. The residence itself is very funky - smallish but stylish and functional. The WiFi is accessible everywhere in the residence and has good speed and bandwidth. A couple of points worth noting. It has a combined clothes washer / dryer which is very useful. It does not have airconditioning but has a number of fans and a dehumidifier. It was 26 degrees celsius when I was there and it was fine. If the temp got above 30 the second bed might get to pretty warm. Greeting was fine with Chokri there waiting and explaining how everything worked. Do get him to explain how the dishwasher works because it is not obvious. Finally it was a very nice touch from David to leave a bottle of champagne and a small box of biscuits - made us feel welcome after a very long trip from Sydney. All up highly recommended. I did hvae 3 older teenage children and we all fitted in fine.
Airbnb, july 2014
The place is great. Plenty of space for 4 to stay and enjoy Paris. We made a favorite of Whisper Bar around the corner and enjoyed our time in Paris. There was plenty to do near by.
Airbnb, june 2014
The place was great - my family and I stayed in the apartment and had a wonderful time. It has everything you need and is super close to the subways and good places to eat. Chokri and David were always available for communication - thanks!
Airbnb, may 2014
Thanks for a friendly and informative welcome at a perfect appartment in a great location (just south of Gare de l'Est/Nord and north of le Marais, all walkable)! The arching cave invites to have a wine together. We did not use the well equiped kitchen. Two very cozy rooms and a high standard bathroom are upstairs. I would highly recommend the place to any group that needs 2 (or maximum 3) double beds.
Airbnb, may 2014
Contact with the owner before and during the visit was excellent. This apartment is well kitted out and is in an ideal location to visit the city being close to a number of metro stations. We will use again.
Housetrip, april 2014
Fantastic place to stay. Ripper apartment, more like a little house! Thanks for your find hospitality.
Airbnb, march 2014
Our stay in Paris was wonderful! Rue du Vertbois was a beautiful place to stay, close and convenient to everything. Chokri was very accommodating, meeting us for check in at a moments notice. He reviewed all essentials in the apartment and made us very comfortable. It goes without saying that the apartment looks and feels exactly like the pictures. This was our first trip abroad and we felt at home here. Once we conquered the Metro, we were on our way and did not stop until we dropped daily! The beds were very comfortable, the wifi was excellent, having a washer/dryer on site was extremely convenient. Overall, this was a great choice for our family of 5! Even grandma loved it!
Airbnb, february 2014
What a great airbnb experience. The communication from these guys was excellent. They were very accommodating and super friendly. The home itself was very lovely, and was everything like the pictures. The neighborhood was in a perfect location, close to public transport and to amazing attractions and restaurants, but still on a quiet street. Nothing but great things about this place! I highly reccomend!
Airbnb, january 2014
This apartment is beautiful, quiet and well located. It has everything you need for a very comfortable stay in Paris. It was a great place to come home to after a day out. Chokri met us at the apartment and was only a phone call away if we needed anything. It was a lovely stay.
Airbnb, december 2013
가족이 지내기는 편하고 좋네요. 주인도 친절하게 안내해 주고, 단계별로 메일도 송부해 주고요.
Booking.com, october 2013
The apartment is great. It has 3 levels each of which has a different vibe. The location is great as well. We were able to walk to most places we wanted to go plus there are several metro stations nearby. I would definitely stay there again.
Airbnb, september 2013
Swank! This is a super cool apartment nestled into one of the best locations in Paris. It’s just a few blocks from many of the city’s most famous attractions, and yet the street itself is far enough away from the bustle to be relatively quiet, allowing for a restful retreat at the end of your busy day. Several different metro lines are within a couple blocks. The apartment is on three floors, with bedrooms upstairs, kitchen and dining on the main floor, and a downstairs media and living room that could easily pass as a small nightclub. Part of the kitchen floor is glass with a view to downstairs, which provides a dramatic touch that really opens up the space. We took note of how well the place was designed, with attention to little details, like soothing lighting. Overall, it’s a total of about 1,000 square feet, which makes each floor somewhat compact – but by Paris standards, this is generously sized apartment. There’s a modern full fridge with icemaker and other amenities you don’t typically find in a Paris apartment. These were especially helpful to us, since we stayed for a month. The street itself is a little foodie oasis in a city of gastronomical wealth. Pramil gets a 28 (out of 30) from Zagat for food, and deserves such high praise, especially since it is so reasonably priced (walk down and talk to the amiable chef to make a reservation). There’s also the super famous (and insanely expensive) L’Ami Louis on the block, which is known for its celebrity clientele, including movie stars presidents. We were checked in and out by Chokri, the owners’ assistant. He lives nearby and really knows the area, so spend a few minutes chatting with him. For example, he told us about the canals near Republic Square a few blocks away that are a delight for Parisians, and not typically found on the tourist maps. Frankly, that’s the type of discovery you want to make when living in an apartment like a local, rather than just staying in a hotel.

非常赞的一次体验！因为是新上线的公寓，没有任何评价，所以预订的时候还是非常忐忑的，所幸不付众望，这次的入住是开心和愉快的！公寓的地址与booking上面公布的还是有区别的，用GPS定位准备找到了，接待我们的帅小伙非常热情地介绍了公寓的各项设施以便我们使用，最惊喜的是给我们这些入往的客人准备了香槟和巧克力等作为礼品，另外还用一张有巴黎特色的卡片详细地写明了WIFI的使用方法及密码，非常贴心！ 公寓里生活设施非常齐全，家庭影院、冰箱、洗衣机、洗碗机、烤箱、微波炉、咖啡机。。。你能想象的生活中所需的东西一应俱全！ 因为我们是一早的飞机，所以房东提前一天就把押金退还给了我们。无论在入住前还是入住中，David一直跟我们保持联络，非常和蔼！ 我会把它强烈介绍给我其它的朋友的！

J.Yves & David have a beautiful place! It is very clean and very roomy. The apartment is located in the perfect place and just a few short blocks to the metro. They were easy to get in contact with and received quick responses from them. Before our stay they sent a detailed outline how to get to their place from the airport. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Airbnb, july 2013
Our Stay In Paris was fabulous and the apartment of David and J.Yves was great. Exactly what we saw on line, lovely setting right in the Marais and was very reasonably priced. It was great to have everything we needed and David was so informative and accomodating. We would definitely stay there again. Marie
Windu, july 2013
J. Yves and David's apartment is very fresh, clean and very well located in Paris. The beds are comfortable. The Metropolitan are close and easy to get around town. We had a problem the last day with a key and Chokri David and his friend were very quick to resolve it.
Absolutely recommended for your holiday in Paris.
Airbnb, july 2013
Really a special and cool place. Great location and quiet. Interior is very tastefully done and both the adults and kids loved it. Nice quality furnishings. Host were very alert and responsive to one minor issue that came up which shows real class and dedication. Will certainly stay again if we have the opportunity. Thanks
Airbnb, july 2013
We had a wonderful stay! Great accommodations and location. A block from the metro and 15 min walk from the East Train Station. Market right down the street and a lot of restaurant options close by. David was very responsive and helpful. We were meet on time and shown around the house. They even had a pack'n play for our baby. Only concern was the steep steps with no railing, but we just watch our little guy closely and had no problems. Would HIGHLY recommend staying here!
Housetrip, june 2013
We greatly enjoyed our stay. It was clean, quiet, and close to markets and metros. Only about 1.25 mile walk to center of Paris near the Louvre. The only concern was the steps up and down are steep and narrow. Maybe a little harder for seniors or young children. Although, we had a 1 year old there and watched him close, so it was fine. The man that met us was very nice and punctual. Very nice to work with.
Housetrip, june 2013
Great place! David was very helpful and accommodating. Made every effort to make us feel comfortable even allowed us to drop our bags off early and helping us get our bearings in the city. We really enjoyed our week in Paris and the apartment made it better
Airbnb, may 2013
Was a lovely option as it's close to everything and eateries to shopping just nearby also metros and taxis if needed..I recommend the place we had a lovely stay
Housetrip, may 2013
David and J.Yves were always responsive to e-mails and calls and went out of their way to help make our stay perfect. We greatly appreciated the welcome and the extra effort they put in. Their place is ideally located, really cute and surprisingly quite for being in the center of Paris. We'll definitely come back!
Airbnb, april 2013
A perfect little refuge from the tourist areas but close enough to be part of the action in Marais. Romantic, little Michelin recommended restaurants (Pramil) just down the street and cool bars (Coltrane) around the corner - which makes for a perfect evening in Paris all within a 5 minute walk! The accommodations are clean, relaxing, spacious and comfortable enough for 4 people and from our experience perhaps too much for 2 individuals. Accessibility to multiple metro lines makes it very easy to explore Paris.
The hosts were gracious and very responsive. We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a full home away from home (the photos online are accurate).
Airbnb, march 2013
Best place ever. And perfect hosts!

Bonsoir, Je tiens à témoigner car j'ai passé un super séjour la semaine dernière dans cette appartement. Il est tout simplement magnifique et on y retrouve tout le confort qu'il faut.Les commodités se trouvent à proximité : magasin d'alimentation général, banque, transport en commun, bus, etc... L'accueil était génial. La personne qui m'a reçu était très accueillante et m'a expliqué tout les fonctionnalités de la maison. Je n'hésiterais pas à le louer à nouveau et le recommanderai à des amis.

Spacious apartment with a media cave and wifi. Eclectic design. Very central location in a quiet street.
Windu, january 2013
My partner, his mother, and I spent the Christmas week here. We had a great time. It's ideally located on a quiet side street in the 3rd Arrondissement, a 4 minute walk from 2 Metro stops. There's a supermarket about a minute away on the same street, along with several really nice restaurants.
The apartment is beautiful, split across 3 levels.
The owners are super helpful and friendly as well.
Airbnb, december 2012
Had a fantastic time in the apartment. Ticked all the boxes. Have already recommended to a friend to stay there who is coming to Paris next year.
Airbnb, december 2012
Great apartment in a lovely quiet spot in Paris, but close to many of the main attractions. Interestingly spread over 3 floors, with an amazing multi-media room - we spent our evenings chilling in front of DVDs after manic days of exploring. Very close to Metro. We were a family of 4 - with 2 boys of 9 and 12, so we could cope with the steep stairs and high bed. The champagne and chocolates were a lovely touch!
Airbnb, november 2012
The property was very clean and very well equipped. We were met and everything was explained and the guy was very helpful and friendly. The area was great, with great restaurants on the same street. Restaurant Vertbois to be highly recommended! Close to everything. All in all, an ideal place to stay.
Windu, october 2012
We had the pleasure of staying in the apartment for 6 nights and it made our time in Paris such a great experience. Everything is just as the pictures show and the space is very relaxing. Convenient to several metro stops, a grocery, and cafes. There were also several great restaurants on the same street. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommended it. David was very responsive to emails and answered all my questions.
Airbnb, september 2012
Great location, worked very well for us on our visit. Nice flat!
Airbnb, august 2012
Just as the photos reflect! David was wonderful and even left a little welcome treat for us. The flat is wonderful and between the kitchen and the space in the basement level room, there was such great space to relax and talk about all the sightseeing adventures of the day. Great location with about 4 metros right around the corner. Good to get the check in info regarding the local supermarket and restaurants along the road. We enjoyed walking over the bakery a street over in the morning for pastries. Convenient location and really fun flat. The amenities are a god send for sure! Not sure we ever figured out all the remote controls for lights, but such a COOL place! Trying to find time to go back SOON!
Airbnb, july 2012
We had a great week-long stay in J. Yves and David's Paris apartment! David was super responsive and accommodating and the apartment is in a great location if you want to stroll to nearby restaurants/shops or jump on the metro. The apartment easily accommodated two couples and everything was in good order - easy to access the wifi, shower with great water pressure, and comfortable beds. We really enjoyed our stay and are now converts to the Right Bank :-)
Airbnb, july 2012
BEAUTIFUL home, close to 3 metro stations. Nicer than a 5* hotel experience.
Airbnb, may 2012
We had a great time at the apartment. It was very large for the four people that we had in our party. I would definitely recommend this apartment and the location.
Airbnb, may 2012
We have to thank David and Yves for helping us on a late notice (as another place fell through) by offering us their place last minute and then David being very responsive with his emails to arrange a check in ASAP and at our convenience. We can't thank them both enough. With respect to the apartment, we enjoyed it very much. We were six adults in the apartment and it was still quite comfortable. Everything was there as stated on the website and it was very clean. We were able to prepare breakfast and even a dinner one night. The location is great as it's close to the centre and metro lines, but also to very nice local neighbourhoods with night life and restaurants. We will definitely try and book with them again next time!
Airbnb, april 2012
Everything was as advertised, and David was very responsive to all emails. I would certainly recommend the apartment to anyone else, as it is a very unique and cool place to stay.
Airbnb, april 2012
It's the best experiences in Paris ever to me! The location was perfect, easy to walk around and there are three subway lines close by. The host was very kind, emails me every two days with asking if i have any question or help. It made me feel that i was home. The house was so comfortable! I will definitely go back!
Airbnb, march 2012
I had the most amazing experince staying at David's place. This is a fabulous home with all the amenities one can think of. Unlike your typical apartment in Paris, this is a spacious three-level townhome in the heart of the city. It can easily fit a family of 4 or more. Very sexy decor and an impressive, luxurious bathroom completed with a double tub and a separate rain shower stall that is better than most 5 star hotels.
It is very easy to go to various sightseeing places on foot or by bus/metro. Supermarket is just around the corner so if you enjoy cooking meals that's a plus.
This is a hidden gem in the City of Lights. Whether you are a newly wed couple spending your honeymoon in Paris, or a family on vacation, you will be very pleased with your stay in this place.
Airbnb, february 2012
I rented Yves and David's flat for about a week. The location is great (1 block from the metro station, near supermarkets / stores / etc), the layout is really cool (great kitche, upstairs loft / office in one room, seperate bedroom and a Parisian basement made for entertaining...). The place was clean and inviting. Getting in and out (keys, etc) was a breeze... We slept 4 people comfortably. Really great place to stay in Paris. Highly recommended!!!
Airbnb, january 2012
Funky, stylish apartment in a fantastic, central location, well serviced by local shops and metro within easy walking distance. Very clean and fully equipped with great computer, wifi and cable tv. Owners very helpful, accomodating and flexible. We comfortably slept 6 plus baby; highly reccomended!
Airbnb, january 2012
We enjoyed a family vacation at the Apartment-House over the New Year holiday. The place was unique and comfortable with all the creature comforts one could want! A nice mix of character and design. The location is very good and our hosts were very accommodating. We have rented many places and this was one of the coolest! We loved it and hope to be back!
