About Helen McLean
I am a New Zealander but have lived these past 45 years in the U.K and France.
Helen McLean purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Helen McLean chose Nice
We love it's light, airy, spacious dimensions and the Port view is a constant delight.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Port is a hub of interesting activity.... It's like a small village with everything conveniently close by. I love the wide variety of cafes and restaurants.... Wonderful Patisseries and delicatessens. Small local shops with fresh produce as well as super markets.

The flat was brilliant for us
Well located and beautifully spacious and airy. Yes, I did get to relax! We traveled to Italy and spent more time in Menton this trip. Thank you also for your recommendations the Patesserie was brilliant (a life saver) and the italian restaurant a wonderful surprise, the food was truely amazing.
All the best and good luck for 2009. I will definitely be intouch when we visit again.
Take care. Kind Regards Lorraine
Most of our guests leave our apartment as lovely as they find it. This reviewer left it so 'spick and span' with tidy cupboards and defrosted freezer, that I asked her if she had had time to relax!
Amazing host and amazing home!
Helen was fantastic on our trip. She was super informative and more than willing to help out. The home is fantastic and perfect for our large group. Helen's daughter Mira arranged for transportation to the train station which helped us out tremendously. Couldn't ask for more and we look forward to a return trip to Nice!
Oh Robert it was a pleasure to meet you and see your enthusiasm for my place and Nice! You and yours always welcome.
Perfect apartment an location to see an enjoy all that nice has to offer
The apartment was more than comfortable an spacious for the 8 people it will accommodate.Helen the owner could have been more help with her local knowledge. 5 mins walk to the beach an sea views yet still a quiet location .
so sorry if you felt I didn't share enough info regarding locality... I often feel I am over whelming guests with info' sorry to disappoint
This apartment felt like home. Amazing stay in Nice
There was 8 of us traveling, 4 couples, and we all absolutely loved this property and we loved Helen the host! She is the sweetest, provided us with everything we need and tons of useful information. She answered all our questions and privided help with a couple things we needed. We felt like we were staying at a friends place. She gave clear instructions before we arrived so it made it easy. The place it selfs is so comfortable and clean. There is plenty of space and we felt like at home, she has so many plants which makes it feel cozy too. Its in the perfect location because the port is beautiful and had many restaurants, the grocery market is only 2 blocks away and was easy to walk to... Also Helen told us about coco beach which is only 20 min walk away and is the best if u want to get away from crowded turist beaches. We all loved our stay in Nice in this apartment.
Oh how lovely to be so appreciated! Super group of people making my day with their enthusiasm and friendliness... Highly recommended to other hosts
Comfortable apartment in a great location
We have just returned from a 3 night stay in Helen's apartment in Nice. The apartment was spacious with plenty of room for our family of six, including our granddaughters aged 4 and 2. We found the furniture and beds very comfortable and felt at home amongst Helen's possessions. Our 4 year old loved playing the magnetic darts game! There was plenty of equipment and utensils. The apartment was in an excellent location to reach the old town of Nice, the harbour and the Boulangerie below! We were fortunate to get a parking space close to the apartment every day which was really convenient. Helen was very helpful and always responded to emails which is important to us when arranging accommodation. It was particularly useful that we could stay for 3 nights when so many properties are only available Sautrday to Saturday in peak season and Helen was kind enough to let us stay in the apartment until we had to leave for our late afternoon flight. Obviously this would not be possible if new guests were arriving earlier than this. We would certainly consider staying here again when we visit Nice.
Fantastic property and great location
We were a group of 8 and had a fantastic trip to Nice and Helen's property has certainly contributing to us having such a great time. The flat is very spacious and the location is superb, close to the Old town, the beautiful Nice's port and the beaches. Helen was also very responsive and accommodating to our needs. I highly recommend this property which is very suitable for larger group.
Our apartment is located in the very picturesque harbor of Nice an easy walk from the lively Old Town, the Promenade des Anglais, the Museum of Modern Art, the Chateau and the parks and beaches. You will find yourself spoil for choice when looking for restaurants or cafes in the streets around us. Our local bakeries, green grocers, wine shops, delicatessens and butchers, are friendly and happy to help and advise you about the best combinations of food and drink. You can easily explore further afield, even without a car as buses and taxis stop at the port, and the main coach and train stations are just a short walk from us.
You can get to Cannes and Monaco in 30 to 45 minutes by train and have lunch in Italy in an hour or overlooking the ski slopes in the mountains just 30mins drive away. Ferries leave the port several times a day for Corsica, Sardinia, St Tropez or the 'Iles de Lerins' (two islands just off Cannes) and fares are reasonable.
