Lovely stay in Paris - so sorry it's taken me so long to write a review! My wife and I stayed here in June 2015 with our 3 kids (9, 8 and 6). A lovely and different experience on the houseboat and definitely one to be repeated. Tres Parisienne! The directions were fine, the place was lovely and quirky and the location ideal. George was a lovely host and I'd definitely recommend.

A fun and enjoyable experience living on the Seine

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this unique property that is perfectly situated on the Left Bank of the Seine river adjacent to the Jardin des Plantes and across from the Gare d' Austerlitz station. The amenities and description of the property were accurate and the boat was clean and well maintained. The owners were responsive when it counted and we felt that if there were any real issues (of which there where none) they would have been accessible. The river is relatively calm and the waves generated by passing boats are gentle enough. Paris is a very busy city (and thus, very loud). This area is no exception. But we were relieved to find the boat well insulated when we were ready to retire and shut out the city sounds and lights.

A couple thoughts for those considering this property: you need to be sure footed and relatively light with the amount of luggage you have in tow. There are two other boats to cross and the walk way on one of the boats is narrow and a bit daunting when approached for the first time (especially at night). But that's all part of having a sense of adventure, isn't it? Also, since this is truly a boat, some of the spaces are narrow and small (especially the bathroom and shower). Otherwise, we are happy to recommend this property as a pleasant and unique way to experience Paris!

Adventurous way to stay in Paris!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed in the houseboat during our recent trip to Paris. Our children (ages 6 and 9) thought it was great fun! The owners were extremely helpful and responsive.

Very comfortable and clean, great location, and the hosts were helpful and available, plus prompt in repaying the damage deposit. Would definitely recommend to others.

Well represented but owner is not responsive

  • 3 of 5

The property was as advertised and in a great location..The problem I had was the damage deposit. I had not received the damage deposit 2 weeks after departure.. I contacted the owner on this site first and then by direct e mail... The owner kept insisting that the deposit was refunded even suggesting that is was refunded in October before our check in.. We finally had to contact Home Away and they apparently pressured the owner and he finally refunded the deposit in late November. This was almost a month after checkout...

Owner's Response: Hi Rob The deposit is refunded automatically by Homeaway about one week after the check-out. Sorry that you had this problem. Actually the automatic refund were deactivated. This time it was a problem of this and we are not responsible. We receive a mail from Homeaway and if we do not ask to Homeaway to kepp the deposit they refund. We do not have the deposit in our hands. It is not fair to say that we are not responsive.

quirky, close to everything, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on the boat. Everything was provided, it was clean and neat (bathroom a bit small, but it's a boat!!), and very comfortable. My 80 year old father had no trouble with access. The boat is close to everything and we used the batobus more than the metro for getting around. The owners are pleasant and helpful. Recommend for families and small groups.
