This home away from away was perfect for our family of three. Steps away from Rue Cler, the Eiffel Tower, the amazing La Boulangerie des Invalides and so many other wonderful places. Rafic and Jasmine have made this quaint apartment into a special oasis. A well stocked kitchen, lovely linens, comfortable beds and Rafic helped do our laundry so we didn't have to worry about it.
We received an email as soon as our reservation was made, giving us some helpful information. Then a day or so before we traveled Rafic called to wish us a safe trip and answer any questions. He confirmed our shuttle and when we arrived at the apartment we met this wonderful man. Rafic helped make our visit to Paris something extra special and we cannot thank him enough.
We had a lovely stay in this apartment. It is in a great location, has everything you need and Rafic is friendly and very helpful with advise and will even do your washing. We would definitely stay here again.
From the moment we first arranged our Paris rental we were greeted by the thoughtful and thorough attention we received from owners Rafic and Jasmine. Their pre-visit communication and help was excellent and became even more so during our stay. The apartment is located in a quiet Parisienne neighborhood with local shops, eateries, and a Metro statin within easy walking distance. We became instant "inhabitants" of the area and felt completely at ease. There is no question that this property is a true gem for Paris visitors and we can only hope it is available again if another trip to Paris graces our calendar.
This apartment was one of the highlights of our week long stay in Paris. It is so clean, cozy, bright & beautiful! The kitchen is well stocked, the bed is comfortable, and it is very quiet. The neighborhood is awesome, everything within walking distance. Needless to say we throughly enjoyed our stay, can't wait to return! Thank you to Rafic & Jasmine for being such lovely hosts.

WOW, staying at Jasmine & Rafic's private apartment - truly in the heart of Paris - was exceptional. This is our first time to Airbnb. My husband and I are first time visitors to Paris, and this location and the surroundings in their home made for a delightful and exciting stay. It is restful to come home after a day of tourist dashing - which we did, so typical of first timers to Paris. The apartment is well appointed and there is no need to bring any extras. Beautiful art, furnishings, a fully stocked kitchen (even coffee for the Nespresso, seasonings, EVOO, dishes, pots/pans, toaster, et al...). The bed is super comfortable and I hope you have time to take a luxurious bath - the towels are premiere, more like bath sheets, resort robes, too if you like. We needed air conditioning and this worked great - as soon as we turned it on it cooled the room and the weather was hot on some days we stayed there! TV, WiFi, DVDs, CDs, all there if you decide to stay in for a bit. The most important part is how friendly and helpful the hosts are, and yet you have 100% privacy at all times. Our plans changed before our last day and Rafic and Jasmine helped out with additional planning we needed to do to finish out our European vacation. Rafic helped us call for the car to take us to the train station and gave us wonderful advice on the transfer from CDG airport to the apartment on our first day. When I requested the booking, I was surpised as Rafic contacted me within about 1/2 an hour. What can I say? I am spoiled by the luxury, the thoughtfulness, the superior accommodations and the beautiful apartment. Location means so much to us, and it is absolutely true that this apartment is located SO central to so many things you want to do in Paris - yet it is on a quiet residential street - steps away from Tour buses, metro, bike rental, historic attractions, restaurants, shops ... very walkable if you are inclined, everything is so close. Our hosts suggested a neighborhood area for shopping and dining - again, very close, a 4 minute walk - to Rue Cler. Also, the apartment is much bigger than we imagined. Awesome first experience and we would stay here again in a heartbeat if it's available and we're back in Paris.
This was our third stay in the apartment, having stayed in July and October previously. It was even more sparkling clean and welcoming than before (which I didn't think could be possible). Its in a perfect location for exploring and we spent much time walking along the Seine and going where the mood took us. Rafic and Jasmine are excellent, charming and discreet hosts, and helped us with restaurant suggestions which were all very good and so important when many of the places we'd usually go were closed due to the summer holiday. I couldn't recommend this as a place to stay highly enough - we'll definitely be back later in the year.
This apartment is centrally located to everything, yet situated on a quiet residential street. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. It had everything we needed. Rafic and Jasmine were lovely hosts and helped us get the most out of our stay in Paris. We absolutely loved Rafic's tour of Paris at night. It was a highlight of our trip. Rue Cler is close by and offered cafes, a cheese shop, a fruit and vegetable market, and a bakery; all the makings for a perfect picnic under the Eiffel Tower. We will definitely be back.
