Madelyn Byrne Willems

TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERT London and Paris Apartments

As children, the Byrne sisters—Pat, Madelyn, and Lisa—spent many years in Europe, where their father was a U.S. Air Force pilot, honing their travel skills on family road trips in a Volkswagen bus. In 2000, they started a small family business, its mission to help travelers find a fabulous London apartment and experience the fun of living like a native. Since then, they have established offices in Paris and Italy as well. (Pat and Lisa live in Italy; Madelyn divides her time between London and Paris). Only apartments in top locations and excellent condition make the grade, selected for various tastes and preferences and furnished with fine amenities: high-thread-count linens, plush towels, modern kitchen appliances, comfortable beds and sofas, a supply of drinks and snacks to tide you over until you can get to the grocery store. Unlike an à la carte listing site with thousands of rentals, the London Perfect and Paris Perfect teams know their properties well and can answer questions about location, local transport, quality of beds, kind of coffee machine, whether guests can control heating, and so on. Each party is met by a greeter who gives a thorough orientation and leaves behind his or her phone number, along with a thick file containing all the information a guest could possibly need. Madelyn was also included in Wendy’s prestigious list of top villa specialists, which was published annually in Condé Nast Traveler magazine from 2006 to 2013.

Weekly rentals start at $1,950 in low season (one-bedroom apartment suitable for 2 guests) and most range from $2,350 to $6,000 during the high season (for one to five bedrooms).
