Mr Michaelangelo Carmona from USA

I would like to thank ALL of you for such a memorable vacation.. We LOVED our apartment!!! I felt right at home and very very comfortable. The location was absolutely tranquil and peaceful. Your service from the office was par excellence!! Christophe was such a delight and I only regret that I overlooked the days and decided to go say goodbye in person only to realize that it was Saturday. I hope to return and stay with you all in a smaller apartment, depending on the amount of people I will be travelling with. Concepcion, the guardian of the building was wonderful. we enjoyed attending mass with her at Eglise St Louis and had her over with her husband for wine and cheese. Love her dearly!! I am sorry we didn't leave the apartment in mint condition but we had to leave so early in the morning and hardly slept from packing the night before. Your car service with Vincent is also excellent!!! Our drivers were so much fun to visit with and felt like close friends. I cannot wait to return to Paris and stay with you all. I cant even seem to find the words to thank you !!! BUT THANK YOU!!! My very best regards, Michaelangelo Carmona-Renaud

Mr & Mrs Redenbach from AUSTRALIA

Bonjour Philippe,Christophe and Staff, This is a rather belated thank you for once again being able to rent an apartment in Paris from your excellent letting agency. Our family group of six very much enjoyed our week in the ORCHID apartment on the Ile St Louis. It was a pleasure after each day of sightseeing to return to the "small island", which admirably catered for our food shopping and restaurant needs. Our granddaughters enthusiastically shopped for breakfast each morning, returning with warm baguettes/croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice. Using Vincent's limousine service when arriving and departing, plus renting one of your apartments, makes a trip to Paris an easy and wonderful experience. Again, thank you for your very obliging service - we hope to be able to do it all again one day. SUE AND KEN REDENBACH Australia

Mrs Robyn Webb from USA

Dear Philippe, Christophe, Marie et Liliane, Merci beaucoup! We loved our stay in the Orchid apartment and will be sending a review you can post on your website about the apartment. I'll have that to you today! As usual our stay was parfait, everything is always done with ease and professionalism by you I'm so glad to see how much you have expanded and I know my friends Pam and Bruce are going to just love you all. As much as I'd rather be in Paris right now, we are indeed getting ready to celebrate our nations birthday tomorrow and that is always fun. I'll be thinking of all of you on Bastille Day! Stay healthy and well everyone and soon we will be in Paris again! A bientot, Robyn Webb

Mrs Robyn Webb from USA

Bonjour all!! Here is my review of the Orchid apartment so you may use on your website!! Perfection As Always! Another successful rental from Guest Apartment Services! This year we took our 16 year old niece for her first trip abroad and wanted to be sure to have her experience Paris in a lovely way. We joked with her that most teenager's first experience in Europe is a backpack and a youth hostel; she got a luxurious ride from CDG into Paris and lodged in a former noble house! The Orchid apartment was perfect for our needs as our niece got to have her own beautifully furnished bedroom and her own bathroom. Her bedroom was the one upstairs and it was like her own private oasis. Extremely comfortable with views on the Seine, the set up couldn't have been more perfect for her. We laid our heads downstairs in a stunningly ornate master bedroom; fun to image you are from nobility while sleeping here! The adjoining bright bathroom is most convenient. The kitchen was my favorite so far in Paris. Huge, with gas stoves!! Everything you need to prepare any meal! I always cook a dinner on every trip and the elegant china provided in this apartment was a real treat. The living room and formal dining room are regal without being too stuffy; we found it super comfortable. All in all an apartment with much charm and authentic French flair. The location is perfect. But of course the best part is dealing with the magnificent staff of Guest Apartment Services! Philippe Pee, Christope Marty, Liliane, Marie and Margeaux are phenomenal. We only had the pleasure of meeting Christophe Chastel , owner of the company along with Philippe, only once last year, but know that his special vision and commitment to excellence is what makes Guest Apartment Services stand out among the other apartment rental companies! From the moment you book your apartment until the moment you close the apartment door behind you at the end of your stay, Guest Apartment Services is always there for you and will make your stay in Paris the dream vacation you have always wanted! We will see you next year! Merci beacoup! A bientot! Robyn, Allan and Addy Webb Alexandria, VA and Ft Myers, FL, USA Orchid Apartment June 20-27, 2013

Mr David Dowden from USA

Messieurs Chastel et Pee, We have just arrived home and I wanted to share our thanks and warm wishes to you and your company. My family had a truly wonderful time in Paris and we were repeatedly so pleased that we selected Orchid for our stay. The centrality of Ile St Louis and the abundance of nearby resources available to us really enhanced our stay. From my early morning errands (baguette, croissants & fresh squeezed orange juice) to our peaceful walks home at night, we were continually entranced by the charms of the island. Orchid is a wonderful location and I applaud you for your accurate description of its location, layout, decor and amenities. The apartment became our home away from home. Thank you so much for your attentive care and aiding us with the washing machine. In addition, I was very pleased that we used your limo service from and to the airport - those transfers were painless! You may be assured that we will recommend your services to any of our friends that will be visiting Paris. David Dowden

Mrs Kim Doyle from USA

Dear Christophe, We had a wonderful time in Paris. Staying at the Orchid on the Ile St. Louis made the vacation truly special. The Ile St. Louis is a wonderful location in the heart of Paris and the apartment was historic, charming and worked perfectly for our group. Thank you for all the extra help with reservations and activities while we were there. We felt truly taken care of. When we return to Paris, we will definitely rent with Guest Apartment Services again. I also recommend it to all my friends planning their vacations to Paris. Thank you again for everything. Best regards, Kim

From 2012-03-30 To 2012-04-06

Mr & Mrs Elrod from AUSTRALIA

We want to thank you so much for our wonderful stay in Paris. The Orchid apartment was incredible. Everything was perfect. We really appreciated how you accomodated our needs and found us the perfect apartment. We plan another trip to Paris in 2012 and plan to use your services again. Staying in an apartment on the Ile Saint Louis is the only way to visit Paris and your guest apartments are the best! Everything was as you said it would be and we were very well taken care of. Thank you again. Sincerely, Annette and Larry Elrod

From 2011-10-25 To 2011-11-02

Mr & Mrs South from AUSTRALIA

Hi Christophe. Thank you for your kind words. We had a good trip home – no jet lag! We were very happy with your service and support while in Paris. We will be back. It is very difficult from Australia to find an apartment agency in Paris to trust so we are also very happy to pass Guest Apartment Services’ name around to friends and work colleagues. A bientot. Chris and Jan South and family.

From 2011-06-02 To 2011-06-09

Mrs Sarina Renaldi from USA

Dear Christophe, Thank you for a wonderful Parisian experience! I am madly in love with Paris! The Orchid apartment on Ile St. Louis was magnificent. We were very comfortable and happy with our stay in the apartment, and we felt as if the apartment was our home in Paris. We greatly enjoyed residing on Ile St. Louis, and I especially enjoyed waking up each morning to the view of the Seine from my bedroom window. We had so much fun and did all of the activities that you recommended. Also, we hired Boris Petrovski of Versailles Limousines to spend the day with us at Versailles and then at Giverny--he was absolutely fabulous! He was a very classy and knowledgeable man, and he took very good care of us! Whenever I travel to Paris, I will most definitely contract his services as well as stay in one of your wonderful apartments. Thank you for providing us with such a fabulous apartment! We look forward to our next visit. Sincerely, Sarina Renaldi

From 2011-04-19 To 2011-04-26

Mr & Mrs Soper from USA

Dear Phillippe and Christophe: Thank you for your note. The entire Soper family enjoyed our stay at the Orchid apartment. It exceeded every expectation we had. We will be glad to recommend your services to our friends who are looking for wonderful accommodations in Paris. Thank you for the services you provided, the recommendation you made and your continuing help during our entire stay. Of particular note was your kindness in providing another apartment upon our arrival before the Orchid was ready for occupancy. That is probably as close as we will ever get to the restaurant La Tour d'Argent!! Again, we say THANK YOU to the entire staff for all that you did for us. A Bientot. Gordon and Sheila Soper

Family Darrach Cottick from VC, CANADA

Dear Philippe, Christophe, Thomas, et all, Thank you for the outstanding service and beautiful apartment. We had the week of our lives. I must assure you that when we visit Paris next, we will be staying in an apartment on the Ile St. Louis, rented by you! To live like this for a week is a dream, and for everything you did, we thank you. Conception mentioned that you have some smaller apartments as well, so for our next visit, we can try one of those. By the way, Conception and her husband Ivan were so very welcoming and kind. I would recommend you, the apartment, and the whole experience to anyone who asks me. It was seamless, flawless, and by far the best week we have spent in our lives! Thank you again, Alex, Kate, Stuart, Hannah .The Darrach-Cottick family

From 2009-07-30 To 2009-08-06

Mr Richard Mosher from USA

Bonjour Philippe - Merci for the great week on Ile St. Louis. We loved the apartment and the location is clearly the best in all of Paris. We had wonderful day trips to the catacombs, Brussels, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, etc.... We accomplished everything we hoped to do, and truly enjoyed having an apartment in the City as the home base for our adventure. Our kids will never forget this trip. The apartment worked out fantastically for all of us. My wife and I had privacy and relative quiet while the kids enjoyed their own space and freedom. The kitchen is fantastic, and we had several excellent meals with groceries from the local markets, and great bottles of Bordeaux. Once again, thank you very much for your gracious hospitality and all the arrangements you made for us. We will surely tell all our friends visiting Paris to reach out to you for housing options. Many thanks,Richard Mosher.

From 2009-07-07 To 2009-07-14

Mr & Mrs Velardo from USA

Bonjour Mr. Philippe Pée & Christophe Chastel, We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had in Paris. The apartment ORCHID was perfect. We loved the location and views. The boys especially liked their rooms. I was very impressed with your level of service. Vincent was extremely helpful in getting us where we needed to go . We will definitely use your apartment services again next time we are in Paris. Sincerely, Julie & Bernard Velardo

Mrs Elizabeth Hurren from UNITED KINGDOM

I would like to say thank you to everyone at Guest Apartments for helping to make my stay in Paris so special. You provide a first-rate service, especially for a woman travelling alone. I was impressed by the quality of the information provided throughout, the limousine service, and of course, the apartment itself. It was a pleasure to have such a warm welcome on arrival. What particularly impressed me was that everything advertised happened on arrival so smoothly. From the wonderful view of the Seine, to the trustworthy photos of the apartment online, to the excellent support services provided in case of need. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to those who plan to visit Paris. Frankly, there is no better way to see Paris than from the view on Ile Saint Louis. I realize what I have been missing all these years when travelling! My Kindest Regards to you all, Bonjour but not Adieu . Dr. Elizabeth T Hurren

From 2009-05-17 To 2009-05-27

Mrs Oliphant from USA

Philippe and Christophe, On behalf of Jackie, Gayle, Nancy and I, we thank you so much for your hospitality during our stay at "Orchid."

You can rest assured we'll recommend your services to anyone who asks!! Judy

From 2009-04-29 To 2009-05-13

Mr Jonathan Saada from USA

Dear Christophe and Philippe, Heading back to Los Angeles, we are about to leave the “ Orchid ” apartment this morning, with deep sorrow in our hearts !! Indeed this flat turned out to be the best spot we have been in our twenty years vacationing in Paris.its layout was just perfect for us and our kids, not to talk about the amazing location. The surrounding shops and restaurants, the atmosphere of the Ile St Louis and its character, will definitely force us to come back in the coming years. Your staff was very courteous, the limo services and arrangements you made for us were all first class. On my entire family’s name I wanted to thank you for making such an experience possible. Sincerely, Jonathan Saada.

From 2008-10-21 To 2008-10-27

Mr Will Kenworthy from USA

We had a fabulous time on our trip which was greatly enhanced by the great location, beautiful apartment and your excellent service. I have told many people since our return about our very positive experience with the apartment (vs. staying in a hotel) in general and your agency in particular. We look forward to working with you again for our next visit. Best Regards, Will Kenworthy

From 2007-03-18 To 2007-03-24

Mrs Kathleen Shaw from USA

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Paris and your lovely apartment. Thank you for your kind assistance and for responding so quickly with the check-out information. I also want to thank Phillipe in particular for both his recommendation of Le Fin Gourmet for dining on Isle Saint Louis (the food and service was wonderful - we will definitely return there in the future) and for suggesting I go the Le Carrousel du Louvre to find my gravures of historic French buildings and architectural details. I was able to find exactly what I wanted for the art in my new apartment in the United States, and will be able to think of Paris and my many trips there each time I see these gravures. Sincerely, Kathleen Shaw

From 2007-01-13 To 2007-01-20

Mr Andrew Paget from USA

Philippe, The apartment was perfect, in every way and every detail. My family and I are truly grateful to you for affording us the chance to stay on the Isle Saint Louis. It was in every way the holiday of a lifetime. Every service that your company offered was professional and courteous, and you are a great credit to the city of Paris. I will not hesitate to recommend you to other travellers, and I sincerely hope that we will be back to Paris in the future to work with you again. Once again, sincerest thanks. Yours, Andrew Paget
