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.

Owner's Response: 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!

Comfortable apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

cosy, homelike, artistic, good location,

  • 4 of 5

Listing description was accurate enough and our expectation were fulfilled. Only thing which could also be mentioned, is that there is no lift in the house. With heavy luggage even first floor can be a problem.

The property was clean but not sterile.

The common area was spacious, beutiful and cosy, which was very important for us. Bedrooms on the other hand were smaller and cramped. If you share a room with someone, you may have a space problem, especially with your belongins. But for four of us the apartment was perfect !

The owner was friendly and helpful.

very happy

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this accommodation. Were really surprised by last

bad review. The beds were comfortable, the place was very clean, well stocked

kitchen (eg no need to buy olive oil, salt, pepper, etc - plenty of plates pots and pans) Yes the bathrooms are a little funky. Big step up into tub. A couple of showers in bedrooms looked like outdoor showers no door and no ceiling,

But good water pressure, plenty of hot water. One shower was tiny. The showers did not smell. The place looks like you staying at your relatives. Tons of plants, sheets/coverlets covering furniture. A little more clutter than normal. Views of the harbor were an extra

bonus. Excellent location near cruise boat terminal, walking distance to old town. I thought it was charming much preferable to sterile hotel accommodations. Yes you might run into late check in. This place is very popular and for very good reason. I would think that there are a lot of repeat customers. So when you are arriving the same day someone is checking out,

there might be delays. They try to accommodate people who want to leave

luggage and check out a little later. The possibility of late check in, was greatly

offset by value for your money. I would certainly stay there again.

Fab apartment in Port of Nice

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband , 3 daughters and their partners have just returned from a fabulous stay in Nice. We stayed in Helen's apartment which was in a great position right by the port! The apartment itself was gorgeous and perfect for us and had everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay! We were very impressed!!! Helen was very helpful advising us on restaurants, transport and places to visit. We were in a great spot for the bus and trains and visited Monaco, Cannes, Antibes and Ville Franche! We will definitely be coming back and would'nt hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends & family!!!!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to accommodate this lovely family. They made themselves at home and looked after my apartment beautifully. So good to see them looking relaxed, suntanned and happy after making the most of the Cote D'Azure.

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.
