Guestbook comments from the owner

A quick and easy booking process with the owner. The location of the house was easy to find and we were so happy with its central location. A short walk to the beach and also into the main harbour. The house has been well equipped and carefully thought out. Good selection of books games and DVD's, Wifi and French and British TV. Plenty of information for local places of interest was also available for us to read. Clean, comfortable and spacious, perfect for a short or longer stay. So many restaurants and bars to visit with lovely shops to browse around. We loved this house and hope to return again soon. Would highly recommend.

Great home base to visit the North of France

  • 5 of 5

Lesley’s apartment was the perfect location for exploring the north of France, including the Normandy D-Day Beaches, and Deauville, (a beautiful beach town with a family friendly racetrack). Honfleur is a charming, historic port village with cobblestone streets to wander through. We loved the galleries and peering into the shops. We walked over to the Carrefour Market most mornings, less than a half-mile away, and ate in most nights. The kitchen of the apartment is very well equipped, better than the usual VRBO house we visit. The quality of food as we consistently found at markets, coffee shops and restaurants was better than average and not as expensive as we had expected.

Our family of five from Chicago used each of the four bedrooms and found them to be very comfortable. It was very warm while we were there,, but by opening the windows at night we created a cross breeze to cool down the sleeping areas; close the windows before 4am in order to avoid the noise of the birds and from the streets below. Don’t forget to explore the basement - we used beach towels, the washing machine, the hanging line to dry our clothes, and tennis rackets (at the clay courts across Blvd Charles V - 20 EUR fee to use the club). There are also games and books around the apartment.

Initial accessibility to the apartment is on Rue Haute. The pictures on the listing are taken from Blvd Charles V (D513). A word of caution - it is difficult to drive down Rue Haute during peak pedestrian times, and the parking is pay and park. There is free parking at Naturospace (Butterfly Museum) on Blvd Charles V; we parked there and walked the block or so to the flat.

In Honfleur, explore the Saturday market around St. Catherine’s, St. Catherine’s itself, and the nearby Jardin Des Personalites (a beautiful garden commemorating local artists, politicians, and other historical figures). There is a very large beach at one end of the garden, worth an afternoon trip. Take a pass on the boat ride that stays in the harbor, but the ferris wheel provided some beautiful views of the port.

Lesley was very easy to work with, no surprises. Everything in the flat was self-explanatory so we had no need to contact her during the trip. My husband could not work out how to use the French channels on the TV to watch a British soccer match, but that was of little consequence. If we come back to the area we would not hesitate to stay at the flat again.

Great house, great location.

  • 4 of 5

Big house , 4 big bedrooms. Well equiped,  you'll never go short of crockery! Very clean and tidy. Super location only 5 mins from the pretty port. Parking not an issue though we did try to get a new Discovery Sport  into the garage but it was about 6" too long but no problem with the height. So we parked on the road and in the car park by the Nature Center 30sec walk away.

Lesley answer my queries quickly usually the same day if not the same hour.

An extremely enjoyable stay in such a beautiful house which is so conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

The house is really well equipped with plenty of room for two families. We loved the decor and the fantastic location with everything right on the door step. Lesley was really helpful with any questions that we had and we particularly appreciated the welcoming wine. We would definitely book this house again. Thank you, Lesley and David!

Beautiful House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a long weekend with friends at this beautiful house in Honfleur. The property was easy to find and is situated in a lovely quiet street very near to the town centre. The house is well equipped with absolutely everything you could need and is really spacious and well furnished.

Honfleur is very pretty and has lots of restaurants to choose from. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be returning and would love to stay in the house again, it was so pretty and comfortable.

4 storey townhouse in great location for Town and Beach

  • 5 of 5

Lovely nicely decorated and well equipped house in a great location with a short walk to both the basin and the beach.

The property has two addresses and can be accessed from either side.

The ground level consists of a utility room, with a door to the garden, and a garage which will fit a small car. I have a low car and due to the camber of the road and the slightly raised entrance I needed to use a couple of blocks in the gutter to stop the front of my car scraping when entering/exiting the garage

Plenty of room to store push bikes etc in the utility room which also has a table football game and several kites and other child toys

The 1st Floor comprises of a lounge/dining room and separate generous size kitchen. DVD player and lots of DVDs (all genres)

The 2nd floor has 2 nice size double bedrooms. 1 at each end separated by a landing and the main bathroom.

The 3rd floor has 2 twin rooms and a large landing in between (play area with English board games/books etc for the kids)

All rooms had good wardrobe space and plenty of hangers
