Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment is beautiful, functional, and an excellent home base for any trip to the French Riviera. It is conveniently tucked away on a lively street in Old Town Nice. Tons of restaurants are merely steps away and lots of cute boutiques. An added bonus is that the outdoor market is also only one block from the holiday rental apartment. Our host, Hanna was so sweet and incredibly helpful. She took the time to give us restaurant recommendations, tell us a little about the nightlife in the area and offer some sightseeing tips... and all of her suggestions were excellent! This vacation rental is modern, well appointed, and very clean. There are some stairs that you will have to get your bags up before you reach the lift but that wasn't really a problem and Hanna helped us get everything into the apartment. They also arranged our transfers for us and the driver was prompt and helpful. I cannot say enough good things about our experience and I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a lovely stay in Nice! Thank you, Hanna -- we will be back again soon!

Stunning apartment ideally situated in old part of Nice

  • 5 of 5

From the outset we had great communication from the Sunlight property team. On arrival, we had an excellent complimentary one-way taxi service where we were met by Hannah. She spent time with us showing the property, how things work and answering questions about the local area. She was really brilliant and really helpful - thank you again. The property itself was beautiful - well appointed and extremely clean and tidy and plenty of kitchen and other accessories available. Fresh roses from the market also were provided as were two lovely bottles of Rose. Just a stunning apartment. Location of the property was ideal - a few minutes walk to the sea and close to all lovely shops/cafes and restaurants. A really brilliant location. Thoroughly enjoyed time in Nice waling along the promenade, in the markets and old part of Nice, the trip to Antibes and the bus ride along the coast to Monaco. 4 nights was great but could have spent longer! Overall, a very wonderful stay in a brilliant apartment in a really lovely area of France. Will be back!

Great apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Very central location, we really enjoyed it and wished we could stay longer. Nicely furnished, loved the kitchen and could walk everywhere. It was a bit noisy, but due to party in the building in front, not the neighbours, so, I guess, it was just a bad luck. We would definately come back.

Owner's Response: Dear Jurga, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Sorry to hear about the party in the other building, that's a bit of nuisance. It's normally surprisingly peaceful for an old town apartment (especially with the double glazed windows)! I hope your next stay is just around the corner. You are welcome back anytime.

Amazing place in just the right location.

  • 5 of 5

Spent four nights here in June -amazing gem, hidden behind an ordinary doorway and slightly dingy stairwell! Apartment is great with lovely quality stuff everywhere. Bit surprised that the en-suite bathroom had no loo, but it had a great walk - in shower and roll-top bath! Separate loo and another bath/shower room.

Kitchen had everything you could want, with Style.

You are right in the old town witn restaurants and cafes all around you, just step outside the door! We arrived to live music stages all around the town for a special day.

Hannah met us and gave us a very good introduction not only to the apartment but also to recommended restaurants and where to go - thank you! Certainly recommended.

Exquisit space!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the 20th VRBO space I've rented and the nicest. It is completely refurbished and decorated beautifully. It looks just like the pictures. It had lots of plates and glasses and cookware so you are good to go if you want to cook. They started us off with two bottles of Rose in the fridge. Hanna, the manager was FANTASTIC! She gave all the info needed to use everything in the house and set up our airport ride, confirmed rides and recommended places for whatever we wanted. It is right downtown in Old Town Nice... walk out your door and tons of restaurants and entertainment and the beach 3 blocks away... shut the windows and its quiet. My only complaint is we only stayed 2 nights on our way from Paris to Rome... next time I will book a week! Thank you Hanna!!!

Cristal - Old Town Luxury!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cristal - the apartment is gorgeous! Very well appointed, with all amenities one would need for a perfect stay. The apartment is very bright and airy, and the chandeliers add to the charm and give it a touch of luxury! The beds were super comfortable, especially the super king size bed in the master bedroom. The bathrooms are very large with plenty of space to move around inside the showers too. The bathroom in the master bedroom as well as having a lovely walk in shower also features a wonderful roll top bath, which we enjoyed using very much! There is plenty of storage space and there is an ample walk in wardrobe in the master room too. The laundry room inside the apartment came in very handy, we were able to wash and dry all of our clothes, even the washing tablets were provided for us! There were also organic toiletries for us to use in the bathrooms. The apartment is in the perfect location, at the heart of the old town of Nice, restaurants, bars, bakeries, etc all at your doorstep! Also very close to public transport links, such as the tramway which can take you to the central train and bus stations for a day trip to the many idyllic towns on the French Riviera - we definitely took full advantage of this! All in all, we definitely had a perfect stay, and we would also like to mention that Hanna our property agent, went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was as relaxing and enjoyable as possible; we even had an issue with being locked out of the apartment without our key on one occasion, and Hanna was fantastic at dealing with the issue, she resolved the issue for us as swiftly and calmly as possible - thank you Hanna! We absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone considering a holiday to Nice, we will definitely be back soon!
