About Natsumi Hagita

Hi! My name is Natsumi. Made in Japan. Changed continents several time in my life. University in San Diego USA, then moved to Paris, had an E commerce there. Now I am back and forth between Paris and Tunisia.

It's nice to rent my apartments to travelers and meet people from all over the world with different back ground and culture!

Natsumi Hagita purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Natsumi Hagita chose Saint Gervais

Because of the great location. Marais is such a trendy area and when you step out of the apartment, you are already in the real center of Marais!

Another thing is the boutiques are open on Sundays, too!

Around the apartment, there are charming old buildings with characters.

What makes this apartment unique

Although the apartment is in the very lively area, the apartment is very quiet. This is also what I like about it. There is even a view of a nice lawn with green and trees from the window and you can hear the bird singing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful Paris getaway

Review Submitted: September 28, 2012 Date of Stay: September 2012

Located just steps from the beautiful Musée Carnavalet, this lovely apartment was the perfect base from which to explore Paris: Within easy walking distance you'll find the beautiful Place des Vosges, many lovely restaurants and several grocery stores. And although it's in the very heart of the Marais and just a three-minute walk from the Saint Paul métro station, the apartment was wonderfully quiet at night. I stayed here with a friend and we found it very comfortable for two people, with all the amenities we needed and ample space to relax after a long day of walking. It was also very clean and bright, and the bathroom was especially ample (by Parisian standards). Also, the apartment owner and her assistant were both incredibly kind and helpful. I hope to have the pleasure of staying here again — and I would happily recommend this apartment to a friend.

Hidden gem of an apartment in wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Natsumi!

We looked for a cozy retreat from which to explore Paris, and found just that : )

Your lovely apartment was warm and welcoming. The location is perfect, just far enough removed from busy streets yet close to shops and restaurants. We would absolutely stay here again the next trip to Paris 😘

Excellent location and very peaceful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a great little find. It's quaint and has what you need for a short stay in a lovely area. And, so quiet! A couple of blocks to the Metro and to 2 supermarkets. There are 2 flights of stairs in a spiral staircase, as reviews have mentioned, but that wasn't a problem for us. The owner is a pleasure to deal with, and I am happy to recommend this property.

Great location, lively neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

It is a quaint, very small apartment. The owner and her assistants are very nice and punctual. It's in a busy lively neighborhood with great restaurants; the flip side is this is not an apartment for light sleepers. Windows can be opened for circulation; no screens. Also be aware there is a small clothes washer, but no dryer function.

Owner's Response: Hello Michelle, thank you very much for your review. It always helps us to make improvements on our service! There's something that drew my attention. Was there a lot of noise in the apartment at night? It kind of surprised me because I know this apartment as a very very quiet place. And my guests send me good comments on that. So I'm wondering what happened during your stay. If this was a neighbor having a wild party at night could you please let me know as I need to complain to them. Apart from that, sorry if you fond the apartment small but the size of the parchment was noted in the description of my listing as well as the cloth dryer. As for the screen on the windows, unfortunately 99% of apartments in Paris don't have them. I lived in Paris for over 10 years but I have never seen an apartment with window screens. But I totally understand how you felt because I felt the same way when I first came to Paris after having lived in the US. The extra tiny elevators, old buildings and tiny wash machines and not having air conditioner kind of shocked me. But that is how things are in Paris. For example you must get an authorization to install a air-conditioner and it is very difficult to get this authorisation . It really takes time to get used to different modes of life and become able to appreciate it!

Unbelievably Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a dream apartment. It is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and the location is out of this world. Thank you so much for sharing it. We can't wait to come back. It is also surprisingly quiet inside for an apartment in the heart of the city.

Excellent apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed nine days in this unit. The owner was helpful and answered our questions. The apartment is cozy and has a nice bathroom. The kitchen is fine with a microwave and two burner cooktop. We would stay there again if we return.

Owner's Response: Thank you again for staying in my apartment and for using it with care:) I am very sorry that the paint work in the staircase started while you were there or just before...? Hope you were not bothered by it too much.. If there is an opportunity in the future you will always be very welcome to my place! Natsumi

Charles de Gaule or Orly airport at 35-40 kilometers. Use of a car inside of Paris is not very recommended. Easier to get around by metro, taxi and on foot! Very hard to find a parking spot.


Disney land is 1 hour away by RER Les Halles station( 20 minutes walk from the apartment).

Further Details:

There are lots of inviting coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores just a couple of blocks away. Monoprix supermarket is open until 22:00.
