Great location, apartment ok

  • 3 of 5

The location is wonderful, only a few minutes walk from the Croisette. Not sure exactly where the gardens pictured were located though. Having stayed in Cannes several times, I would have to say this flat was only average. The apartment was nice enough, although the decor is dated and minor things like paint chipping off the walls and balcony floors were dirty. A/C and Big TV with Netflix was big plus for the kids. Could have provided more amenities, such as coffee for the coffee machine or dishwashing detergent, and paper towels. Not required, I know, but always a nice touch when booking a holiday apartment. Also for a weeks stay and not having daily cleaning like a hotel, having some cleaning supplies would be nice, such as glass cleaner, etc. As a comparison, our flat we booked in Nice had a bottle of wine for us, coffee, all the essentials, beautifully decorated, and less expensive for more nights.. Last complaints were that we asked Gary if they had a baby cot for our 20 month old and he replied "no", so we had to bring ours from home which was a pain. Only to find out from Valerie that they had one available. Valerie did allow us to check in early, which was nice, but then asked us to check out early (10am) which wasn't ideal. All in all, we had a nice stay in the flat but probably would not book it again.

The best place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is the best you can wish staying in Cannes for vacation. The apartment itself is very spacious, modern, well organized . Everything you need from home appliances you can find there. We are really enjoyed our stay in Cannes especially due toour good choice of this apartment. Dear Gary and Valerie thak you for everything. Aliya. Прекрасная квартира в самом центре жемчужины Лазурного побережья. Пару минут, и ты на набережной Круазет, пять минут и ты на вокзале с доступом во все города побережья. Квартира просторная, современная, очень светлая со всеми удоствами для полноценного отдыха. Мы наслаждались своим пребыванием в Каннах, благодаря гостеприимству Гари и Валери. Алия
