"Needs updating!!"

The apartment is in the port area of nice. The only window with a view is up 2 steps and you have to stand and lean out to see anything. The furniture is very old and the couch is half covered with vi… More

In response, I have taken some of the comments on board, and freshened up to its former glory. I have also decided to sell the apartment and it actually sold instantly as it is a very special apartment. The new owner is living in Nice and will continue with lettings in some capacity. A very nice and honorable person. Upon request I can put you in contact with the new owner

I would like to thank everyone who supported me and wish you a very Happy New Year. Bon Voyage, Vincent

What you see on the web site is not what you get, the old building and the views are stunning but after climbing the 99 stairs to the apartment you are met with a TIRED, DIRTY bed sit. The decoration … More

All feedback is welcome where it helps improve the service that is being offered to my guests going forward. However, I do take particular issue with this review considering it unfair, unbalanced and untrue. This guest has never once tried to contact me other than by email. I responded to all these emails. As standard for all bookings, I gave this guest my telephone number and was always available however this client preferred email communications which is not unusual. I was even thanked by this guest in advance of their stay for the very helpful information provided. The guest contacted me raising complaints post their holiday which I dealt with as priority. I did explain to the guest during this time that my wife was having a baby and there were a lot of complications so I was not in a position to give an immediate response to their mail. I also needed time to ascertain the relevant facts and to receive my agents report. The guest offered to send reference photographs however it took over a week for receipt of these. In the meantime I received further mails noting that my business will suffer, however nothing more shall be said should I pay a full refund. By this point I was in receipt of my agents report and also guests feedback both pre and post this particular guest confirming that the apartment was in very good condition. I had been unaware that renovation work was taking place in the building and whilst this was considerably more modest that suggested – plastering and a new kitchen, I promptly offered and paid a considerable refund (28%) of the rental fee for any potential inconvenience caused. Re some of the specific comments:
The apartment is in an old character filled building. The decor of the apartment focuses on vintage bespoke furniture in keeping with the look and feel of the building. I have consistently received positive feedback on the decor of the apartment. While the furniture is certainly not brand new it is certainly not 'tired and dated'.
The bed linen was recently purchased and is laundered after each guests stay and the bathroom is cleaned to a professional standard.

"Nice Apartment in Nice :-)"

I stayed here with my wife for 3 nights in March (2014) and must admit we both enjoyed it very much. It is located very conveniently near the old town and the beaches. But like everything in life it h… More

"Absolutely Fantastic"

We spent four nights in the Portside Loft Apartment in May 2013. We couldn't believe our luck in finding this accommodation and frankly were a little dubious about what would greet us!!! It is an amazing apartment and the advertising does not do it justice. The view from the window is unbelievable. The Port is laid out and the ever changing view of yachts and cruisers could keep you at home all day! Full size fridge and washing machine/dryer, full cooking facilities. Comfy bed/futon. Clean and remarkably spacious. The only draw back for some travellers might be the climb to the apartment - no lift. We are light weight travellers so it didn't bother us. This apartment is brilliant!!

I'm so glad you had a great time in lovely Nice and enjoyed the apartment. Thanks for the feedback. Vincent

"fantastic location, great apartment"

I stayed here with my boyfriend in January. We had a fantastic time. The apatment is right on the port and close to all the major attractions and some lovely restaurants (la Zucha Magica next door has fantastic food). The apartment itself was great, decorated to a high standard and spotless. The stairs aren't for the faint hearted! I would definitely recommend this as a great base for exploring beautiful Nice.

Thanks for your feedback. Hopefully see you in Nice again.

"Great location ....but"

It would be best to start with the positives....great location, right opposite the huge luxury boats parked in the port. There are loads of places to eat, the main Nice beach is a 10 min walk away, N… More

Thanks for feedback, I'm very disappointed to hear that the apartment was not to your satisfaction - the general response received from past guests has been very positive. I will certainly take the points raised on board. Providing people with an enjoyable experience of Nice is very important to me

Thanks so much for your feedback. I'm delighted you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment.
