“Great apartment in good location!”
Reviewed September 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great holiday in this apartment: the owner Patrick was very friendly, he explained everything we needed to know and gave good advices what you can do in Nizza. The apartment was fully equipped, even with everything you need to wash your clothes or the dishes. If you walk out the door the old town is directly next to the apartment and you also just need to walk 10 minutes to the beach, so you can reach almost everything by foot. You only shouldn't arrive with too heavy baggage because you need to carry it up to the third floor..;-)

Bonjour Elaine
This year I noticed that a lot of Irish families are coming to Nice and I received some of them in my apartment which is great.
It was a real pleasure to receive you and I would like to thanks you for your review which describe very well the area and the apartment. ( in which I tried to do my best to offer the maximum of confort for my renters ).
As you noticed the major points I'm always looking after are :
confortable beds for a good sleep.
Apartment fully equiped to be like home.
Cleanliness.
The tips I gave at your arrival meeting are for me a real pleasure. I just want you to enjoy your holidays and keep the best souvenir of Nice.
If you plan to come back. I'll be very pleased to receive you again.

“Perfect for Couple in Nice”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

First off note the five star review --- I usually give four stars or less unless the place is perfect --- however this time I am giving five stars because I had concerns that other bookers might also have and I want to alleviate same.

You can read about these concerns below but I want to state that this was a fantastic apartment and as soon as we arrived we knew everything was going to be OK and I want to tell other's that this agent is trustworthy in our experience. The only actual warning we would give to others would be to note that there is no elevator and older bookers might find the stairs difficult --- we are young so had no such trouble.

The apartment was good-sized and in a perfect, clean condition with all mod cons available (excellent air con) and was as the photos depicted if not nicer. The directions we got to the apartment were very good and understandable (via email).

The agent, Patrick, was there when we arrived and was incredibly helpful. He did a very thorough tour of the apartment and spent the bones of an hour detailing some of the highlights of Nice for us --- he was very, very helpful indeed and it was this time with him that finally alleviated my below concerns. Also he was very prompt and accurate with email communication prior to our stay.

In terms of location you are but a five minute walk through the old town to the beach and right beside the metro. Nice itself was fantastic and as you are right beside the old town you can just walk everywhere!

The wifi worked very well and the shower was nice. We had one problem with the fuse going but Patrick very promptly sorted this out. The apartment was very quiet.

Now I am going to focus on the concerns I had BEFORE I arrived. I am sure that everything I experienced in the booking process was normal for Nice but for me it was a little bit unsettling. Perhaps the way things are being done in Nice is not ideal? I think what unsettled me also was that Patrick APPEARED rude via email. In hindsight I think this is because while Patrick has excellent, fluent English, he is not a native speaker so some of his phrasing via email seemed clumsy at the time. I have since looked back at the emails and he was perfectly polite.

1. Firstly the cleaning situation. When we arrived the apartment was perfectly clean with no dust or mess. In the contract it said that either we cleaned the place ourselves or else pay a fee to the agent to do the cleaning. We decided to do the cleaning ourselves but were afraid that it would not be adequate and we would lose some of our deposit (more on this later). We did a fairly good clean and... well the agent was perfectly happy with our work and we did not lose any of our deposit.

I believe that such an arrangement must be typical of Nice apartments but is not something that we were used to. In my opinion, as long as the apartment is not left in a terrible state, and property isn't damaged, the cost of cleaning should be included in the rental price (so be it if this makes rental more expensive).

Most importantly I want to say to other bookers --- do not be worried, this is clearly not a trap to get more money --- we did a good cleaning and nothing was taken from our deposit.

2. Deposits --- initially we left a standard deposit to secure our booking (absolutely no problem with this). Once we arrived at the apartment this turned into a security deposit in case of damage to the apartment or the property. I was not used to such a set up however I suppose the agent did not have our credit card details...

I want to declare that the deposit was returned very quickly after we left and with absolutely no dispute once the agent saw that we left the apartment in good condition.


3. We had to pay for linen (bed clothes, etc). Now again we believe this must be the typical situation for Nice rentals but again we think it would make more sense if everyone with holiday rentals provides the linen for the stay. Again that is MY opinion and there may well be very good reasons for not doing this.

Bonjour JP
First I would like to thanks you to have taken time to write a review. This is always appreciate.
We aren't oblige to have the same way of thinking but your detailled review could help other bookers as you said.
As you noticed I try to do my best during booking procedure, at your arrival, about equipment and cleanliness of the apartment.
You're right I'm not a native speaker so please excuse my english if I don't choose the right word sometimes. But you understood me which is the more important. Be polite is the minimum I can do when you are renting holidays apartment so I hope I don't make too much mistakes in writing english.....
Regarding final cleaning and Linen. Many owners choose this way of doing to give the possibility to those who want to do the final cleaning and to bring their own Linen ( or to order it ).
I know some prefer everything included but this raise up the price proposed. Others prefer to have the choice and save money..... It's the second solution I choosed after more than 20 years of experience. Why ? Just because It offers more possibilities and people are more responsible.
The security deposit paid at booking to secure the booking stay of course a security depuosit in case of damages till the check out.
All the best for you and your familly.

“Perfection!”

Just returned from the perfect holiday in Nice with my husband and daughter. The apartment was excellent - clean, fully resourced, comfortable beds, pillows, and being in the back of the building it was noise free night and day. The best thing was it's location - when you walk out of the building you are right in the centre of everything - right next door to the old town with its oldy worldy charm, delightful restaurants and quaint shops - directly opposite the apartment is a beautiful green area to walk alone and enjoy the ambience - bakeries, supermarkets and bus stops are a stones throw away.
Patrick is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area - all in all I would recommend the apartment

“Perfect Location for Nice”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed at this apartment in June 2014.

You wont find a better location for access to the Old Town and beaches. Great transportation links from the airport (bus stops virtually outside) and access to the tram gives you easy links to railway station and the rest of the Cote D'Azur.

Patrick met us on arrival and gave a full explanation of the facilities. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything required for a stay in Nice. The only very minor drawback is that it does not have any outside space (eg a balcony) but as it is next to the newly developed Park with the wonderful water fountains this should not be an issue.
It is at the top of the building which means it is quiet (3rd floor I believe) but there is no lift and so would not be suitable for people with disabilities.

Had a great stay and would definitely recommend.

“Perfect Old Town Nice experience!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This rental property was well above our expectations from start to finish. The booking process was very simple and the property owner extremely helpful. He definitely has the renters interests at best heart, any questions about our stay in Nice in general he was happy to help with.
The key collection process and finding the apartment were stress free due to the instructions provided.
The apartment is in the best location, walking distance to all the sights in Nice. Less than 5 minutes walk to the beach, with local markets and supermarket even closer.
The apartment has all the amenities you could need. Great kitchen and laundry facilities with plenty of room. There was only two of us staying at this time, though ample room for up to four people with a queen size sofa in a separate room to the bedroom. The apartment has been recently renovated with clean and comfortable facilities. There is great wifi also available.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and it was great to do something different to the regular hotel stay. I would recommend this apartment to anyone and will definitely stay here again on return to Nice.

“Lovely apartment in a great location.”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a great week's stay in this apartment in the Old Town in Nice.
Patrick, the landlord, responded very quickly to our initial enquiry with detailed and timely information on booking the apartment, payment of deposits and rent and all the details about travel from airport, accessing the apartment and information on the apartment itself. Payment was made quickly and easily through PayPal and our deposit was returned very promptly.
The number 98 bus from the airport stops within 50 m of the apartment and Patrick was waiting to greet us in the apartment and he provided further detailed information on the apartment and the area.
The apartment itself, which is in an old building of character, is modern and extremely well equipped. It is situated to the rear of the building, with views over the old town to the Castle Hill and is very quiet and peaceful.
Outside the entrance to the building is the green linear park and all transport, both bus and tram, is within metres. There are cafes, restaurants, bakeries and a wonderful Italian delicatessen a few paces away.
The apartment is on the edge of the old town with all its attractions and shops and restaurants.
The apartment is on the third floor above ground level but we really didn't find the lovely marble stairs a problem.
Wi-Fi was excellent.
We would recommend the apartment, without hesitation, and we definitely intend to stay there again when visiting Nice

people found this review helpful

I stayed at this apartment with my husband and baby for a week. It was very comfortable. The owner, Patrick was personable, organized and helpful. To begin with, he was always very quick in responding to our inquiries during booking. When he met us at the apartment, he showed us how everything works and gave us a brief intro to Nice. It is not easy to travel with a baby. But the apartment is very central and has 2 separate rooms. So we can go out for walks around the Old Town and back to the apartment to nap if the baby gets fussy. Patrick was very kind and even set up a crib for us. After we checked out, the security return process was relatively fast as well. The only thing to note is that the apartment is not accessible. But neither are most apartments in Nice. I would definitely recommend this rental.
