I'm a dance instructor, and have been living in the area since 13 years. I travel a lot for work and leisure, and I love hosting people in my little cocoon in Paris. The Triplex was recently renovated, and more space was added for maximum comfort and convenience.
Roby purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Roby chose 4th Arrondissement
Because it's best place in paris to live or to spend vacation. It's so quiet and in the center of the town and for me it was dream to buy in 'ile saint louis'. And it's so charming and so 'frenchy' And to come for airports there is RER B St Michel exit 5 parvis notre Dame (less than an hour ) and 10 mn by foot for the appartment. It's very easy to go everywhere in paris after .
What makes this Apartment unique
Why this apartment verses a hotel for a trip to Paris? Hotels in Paris are expensive and a 4 star hotel in Paris is closer to a 3 star hotel on international standards also with 60 million tourists pouring into Paris a year the service and quality is not always as one would expect. There are two hotels on the island, Le Lutece and Jeu de Paume where double rooms start at around 250€. I have seen these rooms and they are quite small. Also eating out 3 times a day can become very expensive. By having a base where you can prepare and eat quick inexpensive meals (baguette and cheese!) can mean huge savings. There are three bakeries located within 30 seconds of the apartment and a supermarket 5 minutes walk away, plus an out door food market close by on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There is also a fromagery (cheese monger) on the island and one of Paris best butchers. Water is drinkable from the tap, however the apartment comes with a couple of bottles of mineral water, milk tea and coffee. THE QUAI THE SEINE ARE A MESSING!! If you want the beds made-up and apartment cleaned every morning this can be arranged at an extra cost of 30 Euros a day.

Location and charm
What a lovely, quirky gem! The location alone makes this 5 stars. Quiet little island in walking distance or metro to almost anything a tourist wants to do. Apartment is charming, stairs manageable (but be aware!) per other reviews. Beds comfy, too.
Great Paris location
We loved the apartment and location . Isabel gave us great dining recommendations and they were all an easy walk . Close to 2 metro stops and many sites. We enjoyed the island and walking along the Seine. It was a great spot for our family of 4. Our girls shared the room in the basement and we had the bedroom in the upper level . We didn’t have a problem with the stairs. Seemed very secure and nice and quite . She even had a bottle of wine waiting for us .
Three days in Paris!!!
After looking at close to 50 properties prior to booking our trip, we couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay here. It was a great location. It is within walking distance to several major must see attractions and public transportation. The design of this location is totally unique. I would describe it as a greenhouse and root cellar that was converted into a very nice apartment. There was no mold/mildew smell which I was initially worried about but the design of the layout and the inlayed glass flooring /venting helped a lot. I would suggest leaving the fan on in the kitchen while sleeping simply to keep the air moving around. The stairs can be a little tricky at first but honestly it is Paris and there are stairs everywhere you go. I would say that keeping up to date on any protest in the area is a good idea if you are planning on taking public transportation. Again, we loved our stay and it had all the amenities we needed and then some. Our host provided us with excellent directions and instructions for our stay. FIVE- STARS!!!
Isabel is a great host and helpful in many ways that makes the trip all the more enjoyable.
Great location. 5 Star host. Helpful with transportation to/from airport. Highly recommended.
The location of this apartment and the apartment itself are both AMAZING!! I had such a great time staying there and being in that neighbourhood of Paris! I definitely want to go again to explore more of all that the area has to offer! Isabel was very available and was a great host even though she was abroad herself at the time. She made the place available for me at very short notice and helped with everything I needed help with via Whatsapp text or voice messages. She has a very comprehensive list of all the local things that you'd need or want to know, which was really helpful and I can highly recommend the wonderful Thai Spa she has in her booklet. I can also highly recommend this AMAZING apartment and location to anyone coming to Paris! Thank you again for everything Isabel!!
The apartment is the perfect location for a stay in Paris and Isabel provides a great list of Patisseries, restaurants and shops. I’d stay there again!
