He will assist you with all your needs and make sure every aspect of your visit is comfortable, convenient, and exceeds your expectations.

About Ron Katz

We are from New York. Rena is Sr. VP at the Corcoran Group, New York's largest residential brokerage, and Ron owns a social media company. We are passionate travelers and have a deep and enduring affection for this incredible place.

Ron Katz purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Ron Katz chose Cannes

When we selected this apartment it had everything we wanted. Open, light, warm and exceptionally clean. (some people say we over do it, but in addition to routine care, we literally wash the walls a few times a year. Our standards are very high. Our guests are generally accustomed to 4 and 5 star quality and we provide exactly what we expect and enjoy). The apartment's location is incredible, an easy walk to shopping, dining, beaches, and easy access by train or car to the best places on the French Riviera and Italy. For the Film Festival and other congresses, we are literally 2 minutes from the Palais.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment's location is unrivaled. The large terrace overlooking rue Meynardier, the ancient pedestrian street, and viewing the ancient clock tower of le Suquet, makes this apartment a rare and unique one. Meals and drinks on this terrace are a wonderful experience.

Great time in Cannes Summer 2016

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in Cannes by car from Denmark and the Supervisor Nick was kind enough to meet us in the doorway. The place was beautiful and it accommodated us (5 adults) perfectly. There was enough space that we didn't feel we were all over each other. The apartment was close to everything from the beach to the shops to the restaurants. We hated to leave, but when we come back we will definitely stay here. It was gorgeous and typically French.

Ron, thanks for everything.

Best, your Danish connection😎

Owner's Response: Henning, it was a great pleasure to welcome you and your family. We enjoyed helping you plan your visit to Cannes. It sounds like our advice and off the beaten path recommendations didn't disappoint. We've noticed that in this wild-west of apartment rentals that guests appreciate more and more renting an apartment that is managed by professionals who have the experience and skill to ensure cleanliness, quality, and service. It costs us a little more but when we read reviews like yours we know it is worth it. See you next summer. Ron

Location and comfort

  • 5 of 5

I was in Cannes for a conference at the Palais and the location of the apartment was perfect. We were a very short walk to the Palais and we were right above some of the best restaurants. If I go back to Cannes I will definitely rent this apartment again. Oh, the apartment was very comfortable too!

A Wonderful Stay In The Heart of Cannes.

  • 5 of 5

We've rented apartments in France before but never in Cannes.

Whenever we rent we always identify an experienced host. Ron, the owner, was easy to work with and spot on with advice about the area. More importantly, the apartment was 1st class. It had plenty of from towels and linens, perfectly clean and in good condition (he even sent a housekeeper midway through our visit which was so appreciated) and a terrace that is great for taking a drink and people watching even in colder weather.

Highly recommended without hesitation.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the apartment for the first week of July and it was great! So happy with the location as we were steps away from the beach, train station, and great shopping. The airport shuttle took us straight from the Nice airport to city hall and dropped us directly across the street from the apartment. It was clean and the balcony was a great place to relax with a glass of wine after a long day of sightseeing or beach. The sounds of Cannes waft up as people walk through the little cobblestone street below where there are shops and bakeries and often musicians playing the violin or accordion which provides an amazing atmosphere. The only thing I would warn is that sometimes the stairwell going up to the apartment smelled of fish as you are between two seafood restaurants however the smell went no further than the first landing and never penetrated the apartment. Ron was great and attended to all of our needs and questions with prompt replies any time I had an inquiry. All in all it was an amazing end to our vacation and I would certainly do it again.

near everything

  • 4 of 5

The placement of the condo is great, everything is nearby like the Croisette, Suquet, restaurants, beach, taxi stand, etc.. and the balcony is great because in this location there are no balconies available.

Lovely apartment near the old town

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little apartment for people looking to spend some time in Cannes, or attend one of the many conferences in town. It's simple and affordable with an amazing location - steps from the brilliant Marche Forville open-air market, one block away from the charming old town street Rue Sainte Antoine, 5 minutes walk from the Palais and the public beach, and right above great seafood restaurants (which, depending on how adventurous your spirit can be a plus or minus - you walk past the prep kitchens of these restos to get to the apartment and it can be a bit, well, fishy smelling).

The apartment itself has a gorgeous terrace overlooking the quaint shopping street Rue Meynadiar, and while there is no sea view, it's nice and quiet for sleeping. Plus, you can see the clock tower in the old town through the charming rooftops. Each room has a nice, firm, king bed and doors that open to the terrace. There is plenty of closet space (albeit all in one room) and the standalone AC unit is a godsend on hot summer days. The extra W/C is a bonus when travelling with friends or work companions. The couch can technically be used as a pullout but I definitely wouldn't recommend that for longer stays. It's not the largest or cushiest - it's more function than form but who hangs out on a couch when on holiday? But note: anyone averse to stairs will have to deal with a few flights of hard climbing - but in truth, I've stayed in half a dozen apartments in Cannes and this is the norm in these old buildings. Character over convenience!

Our host Ron was very attentive by email. And his on-the-ground partner Nick was ever-helpful.

This place is not luxe, but it's got everything you need to have a lovely time in Cannes and the location can't be beat. Walk out the door and off you go.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments. We think you are right about the sofa so we replaced it with a new one that is both functional and really comfortable. Hopefully it is now a perfect mix of style and substance!
