    I will be brief in my confirmation of the sustained excellence of this 5 star rental. Immaculate, contemporary bathroom, home-like comfort bedding, well-stocked kitchen, and quiet yet efficient washer/dryer. The nearby farmer’s market at the Bastille (Sundays) just added to the perfection. Almost forgot, the local boulangerie, also excellent, is right at the corner.


    My husband and I have been to Paris many times but this was a first for using an owner-operated site vs. a hotel. The apartment gave us room to move around and was very clean and charming, with a well equipped kitchen and everything you might need for your stay. It was quiet yet so close to everything in Le Marais – a thriving, interesting part of Paris. Florence is lovely, very responsive and helpful – including recommendations for nearby restaurants – 2 of which we sampled and were fantastic! We do not hesitate to recommend this apartment.


    We had read the other positive reviews and hope this apartment would be as good as those reviews indicated. It was wonderful, as was the owner, Florence. The apartment was clean when we arrived and everything was in order. The location is very quiet and we got a good nights sleep each night. There was a wonderful bakery at the end of the block and a couple of wonderful restaurants within 2 blocks. My wife and I do not see how a rental apartment could have been better.


    My wife and I have been incurably in love with Paris and have visited the city more than 20 times, which makes somewhat connoisseurs of the place. During all these years we stayed in different hotels and also rented apartments. There is no doubt in our minds that THIS is the place for us, and thus, we rented the apartment 4 or 5 times since 2008. It would be hard to surpass such ideal lodgings: the location is perfect; the apartment is charming and well appointed; Place de Vosges is a quick one minute away, yet in spite of all the hustle and bustle of Marais, the spot on Rue du Foin is an oasis of calm and quiet; a lot of the major Paris attractions are within one hour walking distance; restaurants and elegant shopping practically on your doorstep, etc. But above all, what makes the stay here all worth it, the clincher, is the owner: she is the friendliest, most competent and accommodating host one could ask for. Charming and exceedingly pleasant, speaks impeccable English, has always made a point to meet all our requests, and even made the time to get together with us socially. She lives just a few minutes away and is always available to pick up the phone or come to the apartment upon request, should we need anything. By highly recommending this owner and her apartment we wouldn’t be giving them enough credit. Thank you, Florence!


    This apartment was perfect for the two of us. Le Marais is a great district; fun, great food/shopping and centrally located. The street is convenient; very close to everything and at the same time it is very peaceful and quiet. The apartment is very nice and well kept on the inside; bright, clean and has every amenity. Florence is a terrific host; she lives nearby and truly makes herself available to her guests. We had a wonderful trip and absolutely loved our stay at ParisCosyCorner.


    Well, I think writing reviews of VRBO’s is a very important duty… and I couldn’t be happier to write one for this lovely apartment in the Marais. We are a family of three and the apartment accomodated us beautifully. The bed was fantastic – comfortable and lovely linens. Our daughter also reported the pull out couch was perfect (which is saying a lot for a pull out couch!). Florence made our stay easy and stress-free. We have also decided that the Marais is the BEST location to stay in Paris with many attractions within walking distance. This apartment is also located on a very quiet street and opens up onto a lovely courtyard. We will recommend this apartment to friends and definitely plan on returning. Thanks, Florence!


    We had an absolutely wonderful time at this apartment. This IS our new home in Paris!

    We were 3 adults and a 12 month old baby. We arrived on a very cold and rainy November day after a long flight looking forward to a nice shower and rest. We got into our apartment without any waiting or complications as our host had given us the entry code to the courtyard and the hidden key location to the apartment door prior to our leaving home. We were very pleased to find the apartment warm, clean, spacious and comfortable. We felt at home immediately! Once there we used the free local phone to call our host who then met us within the hour to show us how to use the TV, free wireless internet, heaters, etc. She also took our credit card for the remaining 1/2 of our payment. It was all very convenient, pleasant and fast…we were as good as home!

    Things We Loved:
    We used credit cards for BOTH halves of our payment. (Some owners only take cash…Bad idea…most ATMs won’t let you take this much cash at one time.)

    The apartment is near to all major sites and Saint Paul METRO station!

    FAST and FREE wireless internet…I got around 4,000 mbps…FAST!

    Comfy Queen Bed and fold-out couch bed; Radiator heating; Plenty of quilts and pillows; Lots of hot water that never ran out; Great shower pressure; Well stocked kitchen with condiments; cooking oils/spices and gear; Even a welcome bottle of wine and nice bath soaps, shampoo, towels and robes on arrival!

    Ground Floor – No Stairs! (Only 2 steps on porch.)

    International TV with 5 English language stations (BBC World News, Sky News, CNN, CNBC, France 24 Anglais – English language news from France.)

    Very nice clothes washer and dryer…A life saver!

    Dozens of English language travel books and maps.

    CD player with wonderful French language selections (Edith Piaff etc.)

    Apartment was VERY quiet and safe as it was in a private gated courtyard. The windows opened on the street but outer shutters could be locked for added security.

    Also, our host provided a crib and highchair free of charge for our baby AND a wonderful birthday gift. (Our son turned 1 in Paris!)

    AND…we called several times with questions and always got a very prompt and cheerful response. In fact the refrigerator failed while we were there and our host immediately replaced it with a brand new one! I call that service!

    I’m a detail freak and searched endlessly on the internet for this apartment. If you’re 2 or a cozy 3 or close 4 this is your apartment!
