Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment very much.

It is in the old part of Nice so we were very close to Cours Saleya and all the lovely restaurants. It is a lively part of town but at night with the air-conditioning and newly installed windows, street noise was not a problem so we could sleep well. Had a great time

Not enough respect for the guests

  • 1 of 5

This review is posted on two listings as the owner of the place, Mary Margaret, (in the following called MM), unlike other owners has two listings of the same place on VRBO, one listing has one good review, the other has mixed reviews. When booking the place I wondered a bit about the lack of reviews as this sometimes point to the fact that people with bad experiences choose to ‘forget’ about it rather than having to write negative things. I myself chose MM’s flat because she promised me I could extend and stay longer than the initial 2 booked weeks if I wanted to, saving me from moving too much, I travel a lot. Though agreeing to a possible at least 1 months stay I was not granted a key to the mailbox.

The promised English speaking lady to check me in, Sandra, was replaced by her only French speaking husband Yves who during the problems we had with getting the quite old television to work, suddenly signalled that ‘now he had to leave.’ A very stressful check-in process The wardrobe door in the bedroom gets stuck so you can’t get your clothes out, this could have been explained by Sandra if she had been there. Other issues included the end pieces of parts of the tiny shower constantly falling off and the tea kettle looking nasty inside. The WIFI password was a whopping 30 digits and took 2 days + extra emails to be made into the maximum 24 digits most modern laptops can take. The new windows in the flat take care of most of the music noise from the bar next door, unfortunately they don’t drown out drunk men screaming from the top of their lungs, sometimes until 7 in the morning. Sandra came 5 days later with no notice at 9 in the morning because ‘she was in the area’, having been told that every meeting needed to be arranged beforehand - another day I opened the main door talking on my phone, just to find an elderly man standing next to it clearly listening in on the conversation, quite creepy and made me feel spied upon as if someone suspected I was not living in the flat alone at the solo traveller discount. When writing to MM about the quite many issues in a nice way, she informed me I could no longer extend my stay as promised as her parents were now coming, but all the while I searched for other listings on VRBO her two listings about the same place came up as available. It doesn’t make a good host to use words as ‘delighted’ etc. after reviews, for the general lack of respect towards her guests there is only one star for Mary Margaret.

Perfect location, beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Situated in the perfect location in the old town, close to the beach, tram lines and the old castle park. The apartment was airy, beautifully decorated in provencal style and had all the utilities we could have asked for (inc. dishwasher). There were four of us, so we were worried about being cramped and having to sleep on the sofabed, but there was a lot of room and the sofabed was very comfortable. Lovely!

Superb and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of this apartment. It is located in the heart of the vieux ville (old part of the city) a hop skip and a jump to the Cours Saleya and tons of restaurants. Transportation buses and trams are also conveniently located for further exploration. The apartment is beautifully updated...rare in old bldgs. The amenities include everything you'd have in your home and the mattress is WONDERFUL! Cannot think of anything else you would need for your stay...you have it all right here. We were not disturbed by noise but frankly any large city will have it Enjoy your stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you Natalia for your lovely review. We do feel our apartment is a little treasure. We are glad the bed was so comfortable. We regularly stay at our apartment ourselves and try to keep it to the highest standards. Our apartment is in the old town, so when the windows are open, you are part of the atmosphere/buzz and then when you close the triple glazed windows, it is nice and quiet and air conditioned !.

Lovely apartment but the area gets noisy at night.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was comfortable, with a spacious living room,clean and in a great location in the old town.The building in which it's situated is quiet but there is a bar/pub in the next building and a nightclub adjacent to it.When we were there(April),they were open from midweek until the weekend and there was a considerable amount of noise from the street (motorbikes as well as people), in the evenings and until the early hours of the morning.The music from the nightclub on the Saturday in particular, was extremely loud.

Overall,a nice place to stay,definitely,but it does get very noisy in the evenings from the street below which is a big inconvenience.

It would be difficult to fully recommend it because of this.
