Property of the Week


After a short hiatus for the Thanksgiving holiday and vacation, I’m back to share yet another beautiful property on HomeAway. You should check out past properties here: Stylish Stays

Paris is one of the many destinations on my bucket list and that is what inspired my choice for this week. I fell in love with this apartment in the Saint Thomas d’Aquin area of Paris: 6666016



What attracted me to this property:

The very first thing that caught my eye was the exposed stone wall in the living/dining area. That particular design feature has always fascinated me. The next thing I fell in love with was the exposed beam ceiling. Finally, I love that the apartment appears to be well appointed with everything I’ll need when I visit.


What I love about this listing:

I love the featured photo on this listing (above). It made me click immediately because I wanted to see more. I really appreciate the photos of the surrounding area so I could get a feel for the neighborhood.


The location of this property is pretty fantastic as well. It’s not far from some of the major attractions in Paris including the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. Lastly, I was pleased to see the owner’s response rate was 100% within 12 hours.


What could be improved:

The description would be much improved with more details. The owner needs to tell me more about the apartment and provide higher quality photos. The shots of the beds and the bathroom leave a lot to be desired. The listing could even benefit by changing the order of the photos so they tell a story. Here’s a lovely shot from the listing:



I can’t wait to go to Paris and enjoy the city and use this apartment as my home away from home.
