It’s Here! Rent Our Affordable and Beautiful Paris Home Now

June 2, 2017

People have asked us if we think a month is enough time to soak up a city. Here’s what I can say about it. While it has flown by, a month gave us the freedom to explore a Paris at our own pace and in our own way. We saw absolutely everything we wanted to with less pressure and without having to cram it all into a few days. With a full month at our disposal we were able to visit the not so traveled streets and corners of Paris and I’m so grateful for that. By staying in a more residential neighborhood, in an Airbnb, we were able to establish a routine and our household here without being in a sea of tourists. Having a kitchen to cook meals in and the space to actually hang at home rather than a cramped hotel room made a world of difference and I can’t imagine doing it any other way. It’s bittersweet to be leaving, but I think we really knocked Paris out of the park as our first stop on our travels.

I can’t speak higher of our experience with this Airbnb. The owner has been incredibly helpful and accommodating, and the space was perfect for our family of three. The location, the 18th arrondissement, is a little bit out of the way from the tourist spots with the exception of Montmartre, but we loved that about it. That being said it’s super close to a Metro station and ultra easy to get around the city. While the space is small, it has incredible light, is impeccably decorated and had the perfect layout for our days in Paris. Can you believe we haven’t had a real bedroom door since before Owen was born? It was so nice to put him down for the night and close a door (!), it’s the simple things I guess. We cooked at least one meal here each day, stocked our fridge with essentials for Owen and made this place truly feel like a home.

  • Aren’t you still living there? What if creepers come by?

  • We are looking into Airbnb’s for our Paris trip this September and have been noticing many of the homes have as a house rule “unsuitable for infants (0-2)” including the one you shared. Did you just contact them anyways with this rule?
    We are feeing a bit defeated as our options seem very very small when we eliminated the airbnb’s with this rule.

    • We noticed the same thing! Yes, most people are okay with it if you ask. I think it’s more so they don’t want to be liable. Enjoy Paris!!
