So nice to see this rental here! We stayed here a few years ago - the view onto the streets and harbor is just beautiful and you are literally steps from everything. Parking is free a few blocks away - make sure you ask about this, no sense in paying much money!

The bedrooms are tiny and functional - not particularly comfortable but they do the job. Laundry is just a washer in the bathroom but there is a wooden drying horse that we used and kept near the window to help dry.

We have since grown out of this great little spot but highly recommend it to couples or to a family with no more than two kids.

“Great location - Great View - Great time!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 for a stay in October 2013

Our family from Canada arrived in Honfleur for a few days in October. We were pleasantly surprised to find our apartment that we rented via tripadvisor was in a wonderful location and had a spectacular view as advertised! However, the price listed on tripadvisor was much lower than the actual rates charged.
The apartment was charming, small, sparse, and very clean. The bedding provided was clean but very minimal.
The only issues we had were concerning the translation from french to english in the contract (we fortunately had copies of the contracts with us) and some issues over their banks and exchange rates, but Anne (who manages the rental for the owner) proved to be reasonable, friendly and professional.
(We found some free parking by the fish market but normally you can pay up to $20.00 a day.)

“Great stay - great location”
Reviewed July 1, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed here for 3 or 4 nights and you could not have got anything that was in a better position.
Anne, who looks after the property could not have been more helpful. She met us near the property and showed us where we can park our car ( 2 minute walk away and I think 3 Euro for 24 hours) She recommended restaurants and cafes for us to go too and was just delightful. The apartment was perfect!!! Great view, great facilities. Honestly, you couldn’t fault it.
Just know that you have a very narrow spiral stair case to take your suitcases up and down but we didn’t mind

We were greeted by Regine who gave us a lovely welcome and the accommodation lived up to all expectations. It was beautifully decorated and very well equipped. My husband and I stayed here with brother and sister-in-law and our dog Meg and we had a great time in Honfleur and would certainly return. We found Regine to be very welcoming and very friendly and helpful. You could not wish for better views.

We stayed in this flat for 4 days. It is located on the old harbour with a fantastic view of the harbour. Anne who manages the flat is a very nice lady and also is willing to help if you require anything.She helped us a lot even baby sit twice.
This place is in a very good condition and good size moreover ideal for a family with 2 kids.
it is close to supermarkets- cafes and restaurants. Anne also would recommend you few good ones.
Car park can be an issue in Honfleur but there is a cheap car park within 2 minutes walk.
