This is a generous apartment, with lots of space, a wonderful view and generally well equipped. We made lots of use of the parking space and enjoyed being there a great deal.
Our visit was soured a little, however, by the management company, who did not reply to some of my post-booking emails until I nudged them, and then charged us to replace a toilet seat that broke during our stay; this turned out to be 4 years old, but they considered it to be new and thus our responsibility. But communication was always friendly and other people here seem to have had better experiences with them: 5 stars for the flat, 3 for the company.
Review of Nice property
Apartment with classic layout, very nice Sea view, furnished well and comfy. Representative met us in the apt when the provided limo service droppped us off. Rep also met with us two more times in person and always provided info in messages as requested. From the initial contact with Sunlight Properties (the management company) to the rep all communication and follow up was outstanding.
Would comfortably recommend to family friends for their use.
Nice offers many great attractions, natural sea coast, awesome beach area along the Promenade des anglais. Great boulangerie and other food shopping very nearby. So many restaurants - it is hard to find any not worthy of recommendation. Great food and live music at Les Jardins Capitole 10 minute walk away. Many places in Vieux Nice also - including Oliviera (owners of small place import great olive oil in many unique flavours.) We went back for nice lunch a second time after our great dinner. Great food and character/personality of the owners.
Booking was easy and everything promised was delivered. The airport pick-up was especially welcome after a long flight.
Dana, as everyone else has mentioned, was great and told us everything we needed to know to enjoy the apartment and surrounding area. The apartment was everything it is pictured to be, although much, much larger than expected. Very clean, well equipped, lots of grocery stores and bakeries near by, the beach right across the street, a couple of minutes from bus stops, a nice walk from the Old Town, a view of the sea from the balcony and everything you need for a longer stay. We never had a problem with the wifi as other reviewers had commented.
If I could improve anything it would be the water pressure in the apartment. If you like a good strong shower in the morning, this isn't the place for it. Trickle, trickle. Also takes forever to do dishes or use the washing machine and the toilet doesn't always flush everything away first try.
And, I would suggest to Sunlight Properties to add a tea cart or something to the amenities since the layout puts the kitchen really far from the dining area and balcony which requires a lot of back and forth with dishes and food, etc. (bathroom next to dining room and kitchen next to bedrooms..odd design decision)
Overall though a perfect base for a holiday. Central to everything. Very quiet and restful at night. The balcony is a wonderful place to sit and have a glass of rose and light supper as you watch the waves and the people on the Promenade.

Myself and 3 friends stayed here for 3 nights. The apartment was spacious and clean and in the perfect location on the Promenade de Anglais. Dana the Sunlight property agent was very helpful and made us very welcome.
Stayed here with three friends had a lovely time. Apartment is very nice and in a good location for supermarket and bakeries. It is however better suited for couples as the beds are both double.
Great to sit in the balcony and look at the sea view. It's a bit of a walk down the promenade to the main town, about 20 mins but there are frequent buses 1.50 euros per journey. You can also get the 200 bus to Cannes/Antibes from the magnan prom outside but it was very busy when we got on so best get an early bus if you're going. Monaco is accessible from the town centre 112 bus or train, train station is a bit of a walk. The little train runs from the town for €8 for 45 mins tour a good whistle stop your of Nice.
Excellent apartment , bet far from the old town. Close to the beach and different grocery markets and bakeries. The manager (Ivan) was very gentle and helpful.
We stayed at Parisian Bleu with two friends in August 2014 and have to say that it was absolutely perfect! It was lovely and spacious and beautifully decorated with a massive balcony which was just gorgeous. The two double bedrooms are both fantastic - really comfortable beds and shutters on the windows to ensure you have a good night sleep. It also has all the facilities in the kitchen you need! The location is perfect - only a stroll from the beach and to the local bars and restaurants. Big thanks to Dana who arranged our airport transfer and also met us at the apartment and talked us through everything. Nothing was too much trouble! We would totally recommend this apartment and we will definitely be back next year :)
