Overall: Excellent *****

The apartment is lovely and well maintained - perfect for two couples.  Everything was in excellent condition and good working order.  The location on the Ile St. Louis is superb.  The service provided by PVA both prior to and during our visit was excellent -  very attentive and responsive.  Our representative brought us croissants and flowers upon our arrival and followed up during our stay to be sure we were enjoying the apartment and to see if we needed anything.  She arranged our return airport transportation which worked very well.   We will work always work with PVA if we return to Paris!

Daria was communicating with me multiple times prior to our arrival; helping with recommended trains & directions. She was there to greet us & stayed a bit to answer all our questions. The apartment is in a fabulous location; close to the metro & great restaurants! So scenic! Beds were so comfortable...overall just a great time at a great location! Would love to come back!

We could not believe our good fortune to find this apartment for our first visit to Paris. It was gorgeous, just as it looked in the pictures on the website. The location was excellent, and we enjoyed our little island very much. We had an easy walk to lots of boutiques, bakeries, cafes and restaurants as well as to many tourist attractions. Notre Dame was practically in our backyard, and we also walked to the Louvre, the Latin Quarter, St Germain de Pres, Luxembourg Gardens. We also were very close to a metro stop for other places further away.  We felt that for the location, the size, and the amenities (AC, washer/dryer, 2 bathrooms, kitchen) this was an amazing value! We could highly recommend the apartment and dream about using it again in the future!

Dates: April 07-14, 2013. The apartment was exactly as represented in the VRBO web site (or maybe better!).  Alexandre Mony's staff met us at the apartment at the appointed time.  She was very good at going over everything we needed to know about our "Paris home for a week".  It was extremely well appointed with very large bedrooms (with comfortable beds) and beautifully up-scale bathrooms with fantastic showers.  The kitchen, although small, had everything we needed.  We even had a full sized washer and dryer.  Be aware though that you need to be able to navigate stairs.  The apartment is on the second floor and there is no elevator.  That was certainly no problem for us.  The apartment location was perfect - central to many attractions but very quiet (windows looked into the inner courtyard).  We walked almost everywhere.  We did use the subway a little bit.  The nearest stop was just outside our building door and across the bridge.  We found our stay on Ile Saint Louis most enjoyable.  We would, without hesitation, recommend this apartment to anyone.

Dates : July 11-18, 2012. Our family of four loved the apartment on Ile St. Louis.   Pierre met us with a beautiful bouquet of flowers in hand and thoroughly showed us around the flat. The croissants he brought were also wonderful. The apartment itself was perfect. We have teen-age daughters and it was so nice to have 2 full bathrooms. The island is quiet, but still walking distance to many sights, lovely restaurants, and shops. Everything was clean and worked well. The beds were very comfortable and the neighbors were quiet. We would rent this apartment again!

Dates : June 27-July 07, 2012. I stayed at the apartment on the Ille Saint Louis with my husband and two teenage children in June/ July 2012. I had been liaising with the team at Paris Vacation Apartments for 12 months prior to our trip and found their service to be courteous, prompt and relaible. This service was further experienced on our arrival in Paris where we were met by Pierre Louis and presented with coffee, pastries, wine and flowers. We were oriented to the apartment and to the city and Pierre Louis provided us with contact details should we require assistance during our stay. The apartment was just as the photographs portrayed; tastefully decorated, clean and more than big enough for a family of four. The kitchen was well appointed and there was a supply of kitchen basics for us to use. Similarly the bathrooms were well fitted and clean while laundry appliances were modern and efficient. Beds were comfortable and ensured a restful nights sleep. The apartment was extraordinarily well located on the small island behind Notre Dame. Everything in Paris was within easy walking distance though the metro was close at hand should the train be preferrred. The island was well appointed with numerous restauants, patisseries, fresh food stores and a small supermarket. A larger supermarket was a short walk across the bridge to the Marais. The island itself was full of character and easy to get around. It was quiet, safe and indeed, pleasant to return to at the end of a busy days sight seeing.We thouroughly enjoyed our stay in Paris at the Ille Saint Louis apartment and would happily stay there again. We highly recommend Paris Vacation Apartments to anyone considering a trip to Paris and the apartment on the Ille Saint Louis really could not be falted.

Dates : January 21-31, 2012. We had a wonderful time staying here in January. From the greeting by Dominique at the apartment in the evening everything was done to make us comfortable. The floor plan is convenient with the bedrooms off each end of the open common space. Everything is modern and well designed, We loved the little dishwasher. Not only is there WiFi, but a computer for guest use. It is on Isle St. Louie, a quiet part of Paris. Within a block are all of the things you need restaurants, shops, new stands and a wonderful grocery. A quick walk off the island leads to the Maris or St. Germain or Notre Dame as well as the underground. Some bus lines cross the island. The apartment was well presented with everything we could possibly need, very clean and in a great location. It accommodated a family of 5 very comfortably. There was everything we needed and we could not believe how spacious it was and it helped to make our stay in Paris perfect. The meet and greet staff were very helpful, even organising a taxi for our departure. The recommendations of where to eat were perfect and helped to make our son’s 15 birthday a very special and memorable night out. I would highly recommend it. It was easy to work with the company arranging it. They were helpful and had good suggestions. Overall a pleasant experience and a great place to stay.

Dates : December 21-29, 2011. Our experience with the apartment and with the company Paris Apartments 2 Rent was excellent. From the first contact with the company months before our trip, Alex, Clara and Karina could not have been more helpful. We were showered with useful information about the apartment, about Ile St Louis and Paris in general. The helpful staff was happy to recommend a half dozen restaurants and ultimately made dinner reservations for us. Our flight to Paris was delayed 14 hours and we arrived at the apartment at 0300. Our suitcases were on the sidewalk and we had a single phone number. No problem: In 15 minutes a fully awake and charming Pierre Louis appeared, a bouquet of flowers in hand, to open up the door. A bottle of champagne was on the table. He welcomed us completely and competently briefed us on the entire apartment. The two-bedroom apartment itself was comfortable for a family of four. The living room had two couches and track lighting. Bathrooms and a small kitchen were modern and clean. Radiators in all the rooms kept us comfortably warm. We appreciated the laptop for internet connectivity and the cable television for news programs. A small washer and dryer hidden in a cabinet was a welcome convenience. A universal electric plug adaptor and a small 110/220v transformer were provided. The apartment itself was quiet and private, with windows looking out onto an interior courtyard. We saw only one resident of the building and heard no one above or below our second-floor apartment (this may have been a function of the Christmas holidays.) Security note: The multiple-bolt, armored apartment door and advanced cruciform key went a long way to making us feel safe leaving valuables in the apartment when we were out. The apartment was equipped with a complete collection of guide books, restaurant guides and other tourist information that was extremely helpful. The company also has compiled an information binder with specific information about nearby grocery stores, pharmacies, metro stations and recommended restaurants throughout Paris. It’s an excellent resource. he location of the apartment was ideal. Ile St Louis itself is a jewel with a variety of excellent restaurants, bakeries and the best cheese shop in the solar system. Notre Dame, the Left bank, St Germain, the Louvre, Place des Voges were all within walking distance. Metro stops were close by. It was an inexpressible luxury to be able to return to a comfortable apartment after a long day, and then to walk to a nearby brasserie for dinner. At the end of our stay Pierre Louis reappeared to receive the keys and wish us goodbye. On our return to Los Angeles, he even sent a short note of best wishes. The entire experience was absolutely positive. The apartment is maintained and equipped in a first class manner and the company operates efficiently and professionally.

Dates October 01-08, 2011. The apartment was exactly as it looked on the website – gorgeous & really comfortable to stay in. Staying in such a convenient  lovely location really made our time in Paris special & helped us feel more like a local than a tourist. We shopped for food locally which was all fantastic – cheese, bread, meat, fruit & vegetables –all beautiful shops & great quality. Ile Saint Louis also has great art galleries, gift shops & restaurants as well – a fabulous location. We were met by a lovely fellow – Pierre I think (?), who was waiting for us even though we had arrived very early in the morning. He was very helpful & made us feel really welcome. A great way to visit Paris.

Dates : September 01-17, 2011. My husband and I stayed in this apartment with our two adult daughters.  We found it to be a perfect size for 4 adults and both bedrooms were well furnished with comfortable mattresses and nice linens.  The apartment faces a courtyard so was very quiet.  The bathrooms were large and were supplied with lots of good quality towels and bathrobes.  The washer and dryer were separate and in a common area so all could access them easily.  The floor plan was open with very high ceilings and was quite comfortable and tastefully decorated.  We appreciated the use of a laptop and free wifi and would definitely stay here again. The service was excellent both checking in and out.  We had no reason to contact the staff during our stay.All of us would rate our stay a 10 for service, value, and attractiveness.

Dates: Oct, 2010 on Ile St Louis, and Oct 2011 at St Germain Chic two bedroom. Both apartments were spacious, spotlessly clean and welcoming in every way... though the sofas at Isle St Louis were charming... not comfortable for stretching out and relaxing. Both apartments are will equipped for cooking, have lots of fluffy towels and cozy robes. Each has a special attraction. When you open your outer door on Isle St Louis you are looking at the River and have a beautiful walk home over the bridge. St Germain Chic is 2 blocks from the Luxembourg Gardens, close to the outdoor market and wonderful shops on Raspail. Everyone connected with Paris Vacation Apartments is helpful and attentive. Go and enjoy!

Dates: August 14-20, 2011. This apartment is just as it is advertised. It was impeccably clean and spacious. We traveled with 2 families and the separate bedrooms and bathrooms made this so easy. We were greeted by a lovely young lady with fresh croissants and wine. We took a taxi from the airport and it was incredibly easy.   We loved the wireless internet service, the lap top for our use and the free phone calls to the United States and the air conditioning! The location of this apartment is spectacular, the Metro, restaurants, shopping, Notre Dame are a short walk and it was fun to see the impressed expressions of Parisians when we responded "We are staying at Ile Saint-Louis". We also used the tour service suggested, Ciao Bella Tours. We booked a day long excursion to the Champagne region, this was amazing! Gonzague Descamps picked us up in the morning with a Mercedes van and arranged private tastings at 3 locations, our lunch and some site seeing. Very impressive. We will rent an apartment from here the next time that we travel to Paris, it was a wonderful experience. Thank you

Dates: June 04-18, 2011. Wonderful experience.  Apartment was everything I had hoped it would be.  Charming courtyard gave a true sense of security and more quiet than I expected from a city apartment.  Amenities like washer and dryer and dishwasher were handy.  Apartment was well stocked with necessities like washing powder.  The staff was friendly and always available (but not intrusive).  They were prompt and more than helpful -- far exceding my expectations.  Location is amazing.  Heart of Paris.  Fantastic local restaurants and bakeries where we felt like we were at home -- truly friendly people.  Internet worked well.  Telephone included free calls to land lines in the US.  What a great additional benefit.  Linens were nice.  Apartment is beautiful.  As a family of 4, we were perfectly comfortable and at home.  I would not hesitate to stay with them again.

Dates: March 29-April 5, 2011. Our party of six thoroughly enjoyed our weeklong stay at 11 Quai Bourbon.  The fresh flowers and croissants that greeted us, along with the representative from PVA, were by far the most professional welcome we have received throughout our travels.  Our numerous trips to Europe have included extended stays in apartments/villas as they provide more flexibility and comfort...and more of an “actual living experience” in that city.  On this particular trip, my elderly parents were with us and the location could not have been better.  Walking throughout Paris and visiting all the sites with my 88-year old father...location was very important.  You are close to the metro, easy access for taxis, and most of the major sites are within walking distance.  We would definitely rent from Paris Vacation Apartments again...the apartment was spotless and they offered many amenities and personal assistance to make our stay a wonderful vacation.  We will definitely use PVA to book our next trip...and encourage anyone who is thinking of taking a trip to use this agency.

Dates: March 20-27, 2011. We have traveled extensively and stayed in exquisite accomodations.  This was our second experience staying in an apartment rental (the first being 10 years ago) and it could not have been more elegant and comfortable!  The renovations were bright and modern,  and both bedrooms and baths were spacious and elegant.  The kitchen had everything one might need for everyday living and there was plenty of seating in the dining area and living room.  Location was an absolute 10 since we could roll out of our apartment, and be down the street from Notre Dame and numerous restaurants, shops and museums.   We had only one minor problem and that was with the drain in the master shower.  It didn't work well and we should have contacted pva but managed despite it.  Five people lived extremely well in this very airy and pleasant space and we would use your service again, and this apartment would definitely be on the top of the list.  Thank you.

But more importantly she spent a great deal of time sharing her knowledge of Paris with us.....especially great restaurant recommendations. The apartment was immaculate, every appliance worked perfectly. There was even soap for the washing machine! It was so perfect that we travel to Paris often and will never stay at a hotel again. We hope to try another PVA apartment next year simply to try out a different location...just for fun.

Dates: December 09-16, 2010. The apartment was beyond our expectations. We were late arriving on the Eurostar due to the snow, but there was no problem, and we were met at the apartment by a very charming helpful young man (whose name I have unfortunately forgotten). He carried our bags up and showed us around, and had flowers and croissants and wine waiting for us. What a wonderful introduction to one of our favourite cities for our two daughters! We were well supplied with local information and after 1 week felt almost like locals ourselves. It was a lovely quiet location a couple of minutes walk to the Metro and very central. There were plenty of shops and restaurants, and all of the locals kindly put up with my poor command of the French language. And it was wonderful to have a phone number to call in case of difficulties, and when we did call to be responded to with no difficulty. It was the best apartment that we stayed in over our 6 week holiday. We have told all our friends.Service: 10

Dates: October 29-November 12, 2010. On my next trip to Paris I will definitely try to book the same apartment.  Holiday rental apartments are rated, in my view, on several criteria but, by far, the most important is the quality of the beds.  The apartment on Quai Bourbon, Ile Saint Louis, is outstanding in this regard.  The location naturally, is perfect, the utilities, fitout and decor similarly excellent.  Then there is the service!  We, in Australia, could learn a valuable lesson from PVA.  Whilst unobtrusive, the management made themselves available at all times and nothing was a bother.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Paris Vacation Apartments to any interested traveller and, in particular, to all Australians.

We had previously stayed in a lovely apartment on Place des Vosges, also arranged through PVAbut on this occasion it was unavailable.  So we were recommended the apartment on Ile St Louis.  To say we were happy with this apartment is an understatement!  We loved this apartment, it was perfect for our family (2 adults/2 kids 12 and 14).  The location was really great, central and convenient to everything we love in Paris.  The apartment was beautifully renovated, spacious, bright and warm.  The bathrooms and bedrooms were huge and luxurious and it had all the mod cons like washer/dryer, satellite TV, laptop and wifi.  From the minute we arrived, to be greeted by Fred, until we left a week later, farewelled by Clara - we were extremely comfortable and happy. Loved it !

Comme un parisien!  That's exactly how I felt while staying on Ile St. Louis.  The apartment exceeded expectations: fabulous bathrooms, well-appointed, all the modern conveniences including wifi, air-conditioning, washer dryer.  Emily was welcoming and helpful.  Location was brilliant.  We walked nearly everywhere and always returned to our "sanctuary" in the late afternoon to recover from a busy day.  Staying on Ile St Louis was perfect: made nearly everything we wanted to do easily accessible.  My son wanted to stay another week!  and he is normally ready to go home after 5 days. I would definte rent this apartment again and work with Alexandre and team again.  They made the entire process so easy and stress-free, leaving me to simply enjoy.
Leslie Bonner, Merced, California
Dates: September 17-30.2010.This is the second apartment we have rented from Paris Vacation Apartments. We loved this apartment's location on the Ile St. Louis. The island has everything; bakeries. restaurants, boutiques, wine, cheese and pate shops. We ate at several of the restaurants and enjoyed them very much. Although the island is known for its excellent ice cream, there is a gelato shop, Amarino, which was fantastic. We went there many times.
The apartment also had everything. I must admit we did no cooking although the kitchen was completely equipped. The apartment was spacious and well lite. Although we had neighbors all around us they were very quiet and there was no street noise. The bathrooms were newly done. I loved the shower head fixture and the heated towel racks. We appreciated having the free Internet and the flat screen TV for time when we were resting between outings. There was plenty of closet space and the beds were comfortable (my husband liked the extra pillows). Because there is a washer and dryer in the apartment we were able to do our laundry there which was wonderful.
Since this apartment has two bedrooms and two baths it was ideal for our small group of two couples. We enjoyed it so much we plan on coming back every other year and we hope that we can get this apartment.

The apartment was great and well stocked. The area itself is perfect.within easy walking distance of any place you want to go. I would give everything a 10 and I would give Isis a 10+. She went above and beyond the call of duty and did everything she could to make our stay perfect. She is truly a gem. I think what impressed us the most was that everything was as pictured - there were no surprises. I would not hesitate to recommend this agency to anyone so you may certainly use us as a reference.

Dates: July 24-31, 2010. The best of 2 worlds!!  A modern, renovated apartment with conveniences in a historic neighborhood.  Spacious bedrooms, attractive furnishings, useful appliances.  Isis and Karina were attentive and helpful throughout our stay, not only at check-in and check-out.  I have already recommended this apartment and rental agency to others and I would not hesitate to contact them again in the future. It was such a lovely location; we walked past Notre Dame daily.  You can walk anywhere from this apartment, yet it provides a nice, quiet respite when you take a break from touring!
