Client Testimonials

In your apartment and the neighborhood in which it’s located, my wife and I found exactly what we were looking for in order to live like Parisians.

The apartment was found to be completely furnished with all the amenities that any visitor could desire, including Internet access and a laptop computer. Views of the Eiffel Tower surpassed our greatest expectations.

No component of your description of the apartment was found to be untrue – in fact, quite understated as to the favorable residential neighborhood in which it is located. The open market on Wednesdays and Sundays is one of the best in the city and within a ten minute walk out the front door. All gourmands would be delighted.

Being so close to numerous Metro locations allowed us access to all parts of the city we chose not to commute to by foot. Additionally, we were pleasantly surprised by the number of restaurants within a four block area that were highly recommended by Pudlow’s Paris and other similar restaurant guides.

In short, we have found that this is the place to stay – for a week or a month – if someone wishes to experience the true life of Paris.

Thank you again,

- Warren and Sue Anne Lake

As this is our first visit to Paris, and we could not have asked for nicer accommodations. The location is wonderful and we have discovered so many great cafes and restaurants within walking distance. Your penthouse has more than met our expectations, and we look forward to our return visit to Paris and LPR.

- Ann Marie E. - Niagara Falls, Canada

What a great view of the Eiffel Tower ablaze with lights for the rugby world cup.

- Bob & Shirley, S. – Vancouver, Canada

We had a wonderful two weeks here in Paris and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We're looking forward to a future visit to this wonderful city and to this cozy retreat!

- Vivian & Carlos M. - Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.

Thank you for sharing your 'little dream in the sky' with us. We were very comfortable, and you have thought of everything -- obviously a labor of love.

- Sandra & Kenneth B., Vancouver, Canada

I write this while staying at Le Petit Reve Dans le Ciel, so I have the distinct pleasure of looking out the window of the study at the glittering Eiffel Tower. This view, dazzling from every window, is obviously one of the great charms of this apartment, but there are many, many others.

The place is chic, comfortable, beautifully decorated and well-appointed, making life here a very positive experience, both esthetically and practically. Then there is the neighborhood--authentically Parisian, convenient, and full of little corners to discover and explore. We have tried three of the restaurants Paula recommends in her little "welcome booklet" and all were truly excellent.

Paula, (LPR’s Owner) it must be added, has great integrity and goes out of her way to meet the needs of her guests. We travel widely, often rent short-term apartments and know Paris very well; from all these perspectives, we can certainly recommend this penthouse with great enthusiasm.

- Cheryl Weisberg of New York City

LPR is charming, comfortable, sunny and beautifully laid out. We are having great sleeps and early mornings.

You have truly made this into a treasure. It is so peaceful and well laid out. The windows are even better than I had imagined. Morning sun through the kitchen and bathroom and afternoon evening sun in the living room.

I can imagine already that this would be a great place to come for a reading break or a tranquil getaway. The advantage of having the Metro so close is huge.

- Anne-Marie Kains of Ontario, Canada

I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed Le Petit Reve in September. The apartment was just great, and was most certainly the best equipped we had ever stayed in. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was just great, and it was very nice to be able to check our email at home on the Internet − we felt truly spoiled. The Property Manager was also very helpful, and was there waiting for us when we got to the apartment. We´re already looking forward to our next trip to Paris, and hope that Le Petit Reve will be available.

- K.T. Newton of California

This is our third time to Paris and the first time renting an apartment. LPR is a great place to stay and the neighborhood and its people were welcoming. The apartment has everything you need. Paris, je t'aime. LPR, je t'aime. We will definitely be back!

- Daniel & Tracey Topp Ontario, Canada

Our weekend in Paris was fantastic as we did our photo shoot across Paris - via LPR. Being so close to our favorite monument added to the ambience of the neighborhood. LPR was cozy and luxurious at the same time. We spent hours reading, drinking coffee, and listening to music after a full day of walking the city. Thanks for giving us memorable night views and photo opportunities.

- Karl & Ann Bates Maple Grove, Minnesota

We just wanted you to know our experience at LPR has been more than 'what the pictures showed". The little things, i.e. -- good pillows (big), good music on your ipod, bottle of Rose upon arrival, internet in the office, long distance phone availability, etc. You have addressed all our needs and wants -- and then some!!!

- John & Melaine Allen Ontario, Canada

We want to thank you for helping us have a magnificent time in Paris. The apartment filled and went above our highest expectations. The views of the Eiffel Tower and the fact that the metro station was so close overjoyed us. After a long day of sightseeing it was nice to come home to a cozy apartment and feel comfortable. We also loved the neighborhood. It has so much character and everything is so close. Again, thanks you for everything. We had a GREAT time!

- Jack & Cindy Forsyth Pulaski, New York

Dana and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary in Paris and staying at your beautiful penthouse added to our wonderful experience. Our first impression was "WOW"...just look at this beautiful home...staying in the penthouse truly made us feel like we were in our own home. You have thought of every amenity and we felt like we were being pampered.

Our most memorable time in the penthouse was waking up in the bedroom, lying in bed and looking out the window and feeling like we were truly floating "in the clouds"...just like the mural on the closet...you are absolutely in the clouds. We promised ourselves we would look out the window....close our eyes and take away the memory of the view forever. Thank you for sharing your penthouse and making our 5 year wedding anniversary one of our best ever!

- Nancy & Dana W. Maine, USA

Our short stay in Paris was absolutely a wonderful experience!

We had initial concern about renting an apartment in Paris because we did not know the city nor the language thinking that we might need the assistance that one generally finds in a hotel.

However, we discovered that Paula's mission statement which is to create a beautiful place, cozy and comfortable like home are 100% accurate.

One finds recommendations, suggestions, directions and numerous travel books to peruse in the apt.

What a lovely and friendly neighborhood with very good restaurants!

Great proximity to the metro with convenient access to all of Paris.

Needless to say that the view of the Eiffel Tower is spectacular with its illuminating show in the evening!

We hope to return and also try the other properties since we had such a positive experience.

- Diana & Jeff, New York

Your little dream in the sky is a real jewel! What a great view of the eiffel tower and to see it on New Year's eve was a very special treat. Your little get a way is totally eqipped! You really have thought of everything, needless to say, we totally enjoyed our stay.

- Kathy C., Clearwater, Florida

I have been to Paris many times, and stayed in hotel rooms that are not much bigger than a postage stamp. For our first vacation together, I thought perhaps my fiancé and I would appreciate a bit more room. My search lead me to your apartment… and I’m SO VERY GLAD it did! Your little d ream in the sky is PERFECTION! We stayed for 4 nights last November and could not have been happier with the experience.

The descriptions on the website do not lie – the apartment is very conveniently located, and there are plenty of great little cafes and restaurants nearby. The traditional Paris tourist attractions are either a short walk or a short Metro ride away. The apartment itself is lovely and cozy – much cozier, I thought, than the online pictures suggest – with plenty of space for two people who have never vacationed together before. The décor is upscale and yet approachable, very comfortable and warm. The kitchen was our favorite amenity; so nice to be able to make your own morning coffee or prepare a simple luncheon snack (to save room for a fabulous Parisian dinner!). And let’s not forget about that view… it’s absolutely spectacular!!!

And I must compliment you personally on your customer service. There was a minor mix-up with our arrival date, and your recommendations of nearby hotels was wonderful. We stayed our first night at the very comfortable Best Western Hotel Eiffel Cambronne, which turned out to be about 50 feet from the apartment! And when we had a few issues regarding additional charges against our security deposit, your flexibility and willingness to work with us was perhaps the nicest surprise of all. When renting a private apartment online, there is always concern about the honesty and character of the person on the other end. Your integrity, responsiveness, and friendly professionalism were very welcome, and only served to strengthen our enthusiasm for LPR (and its owner!).

It was wonderful to be able to share my old favorite haunts with my fiancé, as well as discover interesting new places we’ll call our own. IE2m sure we’ll be back, and we’ll absolutely keep LPR at the top of our preferred accommodation list for future visits! We’re already discussing how we can possibly spend a month there… Or two…

Thanks for sharing your little dream with us,

- Diane and Pat (soon to be) B., Bartlett, IL USA

This was our second trip to Paris and we'll definitely not stay in a cramped hotel room again. Your apartment is truly a little dream in the clouds, and it greatly enhanced our trip.

- Sharon & Steve M

We look forward to returning one day. Thanks again for making our vacation so memorable.

- Barbara & Michael

Thank you for sharing your divine apartment with us. We were very comfortable and loved the attention to detail throughout the place. This is our first trip to Paris and we truly felt like Parisians living here. Everything is so conveniently located from the apartment -- the metro, monoprix, restaurants, etc. We will definitely visit Paris again and hope to stay in this nest among the clouds.

- Batul & Kiran, California

What a perfect place to celebrate Valentine's Day. We enjoyed our visit so much to your apartment in July, we had to return. Thanks for the life long memories!

- Dave & Natalie B., Indiana

The time I was able to spend in your superb apartment in Paris is the most relaxing I have had in a long time. The apartment is so well equipped, there was not anything that we needed extra. The well thought out touches of having a cell phone available, the laptop in the office, and the land line were indeed a pleasure to have. I want to thank you for putting such a gem on the rental market. My recommendation for a great Paris stay has already gone out to many friends, and I certainly am hoping to be able to rent from you again in the future.

- Kirsti M., Key West, Florida

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful apartment with us. I was not looking forward to a cramped hotel room. We have everything we need and then some. My only suggestion would be to maybe turn the sofa "caddy-corner" so that viewing the TV on the wall would be easier and I think it would look great as well. Nonetheless, your apartment is fabulous! Again, thank you so much for everything. I will definitely be returning!

- Carolyn I., Martinsville, Va.

The apartment is so well appointed and the facilities it offers are so complete that we have wanted for nothing. The services available in the near vicinity include everything needed on a daily basis (bread, wine, foods and personal necessities), and it has been so relaxing to be able to come "home" to call it a night, or prep up for another run at the city later. I don't think we could have asked for a better situation for our travels and explorations.

- Ross & Bette P., Oregon

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here and we really enjoyed it. Thank you for all the hospitality and the amenities to make it feel like a home away from home.

- Maria & Eli

My 14-year-old daughter "Shea" and I have had a wonderful time. The apartment is perfect! So much better than a hotel. Thank you so much for all the little niceties that made such a difference (computer, cell phone and free US phone calls). We will return for sure!

- Carolyn & Shea

What a wonderful place in a great city. The world class attractions speak for themselves, but as great as they are we loved your neighborhood. A big part of Paris is walking through the little streets with shops, the Wednesday and Saturday market, fruit and vegetable stands, bakeries, coffee shops and restaurants. Being only 5 minutes from 3 metro stations gives easy access to all of Paris. Then to come home to a comfortable apartment with a bath in the comfort of our 'own' space makes for a perfect day. Thanks again Paula for all the time and attention given to making our trip just perfect.

- Jim & Loretta, San Ramon, California

What an amazing two weeks in your Paris penthouse. All of your special touches made us feel right a home. So many memorable moments: first night with a vibrant sunset, the incredible view of the Bastille Day fireworks, 13 special experiences with our 6-day museum pass, many homemade feasts in your kitchen with fresh produce from the local street market and many kind people as we attempted to speak French, experiencing the colorful metor and friendly neighbors that made us feel like we lived here. We will miss Paris and we are so glad that our first experience was such a dream come true.

- Ed and Gail, Huntington Beach, California

Thank you Paula for making our first visit to Paris amazing with all the help you gave us in planning the trip and the awesome penthouse that is truly a labor of love. It was so nice to wake in the morning and set out to experience the sights, sounds and smells of Paris and to return to your little piece of heaven at night.

- Rudy & Kathy, Cleveland, Ohio

This is our first time visiting Paris and staying at LPR made our trip relaxing and memorable. All the amenities in the apartment, the neighborhood, the restaurants, the metro and, of course, the view of the Eiffel Tower. We LOVED it.!!! Thanks for a magnificent stay. We would definitely come back again.

- Tom & Marge R., Lodi, California

This is our fourth visit to Paris and the first time to stay in an apartment. It has been a great experience for us and wonderful to come back after a busy day and not have to go out. We cooked in every evening and enjoyed our first dinner with wine 'at home'. Views of the Eiffel Tower really climaxed the evening and made us feel truly 'in' Paris.

- Hugh & Pat G. Calgary, Alberta

What a terrific apartment. Indeed a dream! Thanks for all your recommendations and for thinking of everything in the apartment. I hope to come again.

- Liz E., New York, New York

We spent a superb month at LPR, a perfect spot for both work and play in Paris. The apartment is so tastefully designed, such an excellent use of space. We travel in Europe every year and LPR really feels spacious and well-designed compared to other accommodations. I'm sure we'll be back. THANK YOU!!!!
