About the property

Welcome home!

Imagine yourself on a balcony, on the beautiful Cote d'Azur, in an elegant apartment facing the Mediterranean sea. Awake to the gentle lapping of the waves on the immaculate beach. Take your croissant and coffee on our west balcony facing a delightful garden. Drink your evening cognac on our south balcony directly facing the turquoise sea.

Laurie's Dream Apartment is a haven in a little corner of paradise. Beside the sea, it is conveniently located minutes from the charming pedestrian street, the famous fresh fruit and vegetable market of Menton, various shops, and notable restaurants, all walking distance. At Laurie's Dream, you do not need a car, but if you choose, there is city parking available, on metered streets and garages.

This charming turn-of-the-century building, the 1900s, has a pleasant garden available for you to sit in and cool off in the shade of banana and palm trees. It also has an adorable and functional birdcage lift (elevator).

From the photos you can see the interior of this lovely apartment, including a large bathroom, a large living room with balcony, and the mezzanine which sleeps 2 .The mezzanine is actually a sleeping loft as you can see from the photos. Most people can not stand up completely. The bed is accessible from the stairs. Please feel free to inquire.

The apartment has wi-fi for those who need to stay in touch.

Of course, Menton itself offers train and bus service to all the charming villages in the area. Perched villages include Roquebrune Village, St. Agnes and Gorbio. If you are a museum aficionados, you can visit museums dedicated to Jean Cocteau in Menton, as well as other towns dedicated to Matisse, Picasso, and Renoir, and all of the changing exhibits in Monaco, which is also a quick train Ride away.

And do not forget to look east. Our Italian neighbors offer a wide range of charming towns to see, including Ventimiglia for its Friday market, San Remo, Genova, and Cinque Terre, all close by.

Or just stay and love the view.

Menton is famous for its micro-climate of 320 sunny days a year. So come love it like we do.

Laurie's Dream is the perfect place to spend quality time with family or friends. This wonderful apartment will make you feel at home.

Avec Plaisir. Bon Séjour!

Great beachfront apartment in a really cool French beach town

  • 5 of 5

Like I assume of many other renters, we weren’t going to leave feedback, but then I saw the previous review which didn’t represent our experience at all, so here goes. That one just seemed so off, I really think the apartment deserves better.

It was perfectly clean, so I don’t know what that person was talking about.

And I’m not sure what they were talking about by “noisy”; there was some honking the night France won their Workd Cup semi-final, but that was all. Plus, it’s on the second floor, so it’s not like the street is right there.

Yeah, there’s no AC, but plenty of fans and windows—and two balconies—so we didn’t find it stuffy. Being across the street from the beach gives you the ocean breeze too.

We were lucky to see the fantastic Bastille Day---July 14----fireworks from our balcony, drinking wine and watching everybody stroll by. It was great and we enjoyed the view every night before and/or after eating out. We didn’t do a lot of cooking but the kitchen is big and well equipped. We had breakfast on the side balcony every morning. Very charming, cute, and with views of the sea and the cool garden (palm, banana, lemon trees and stuff).

The only caution might be about the sleeping loft. This is a beautiful old building with very high ceilings in the main living room. The sleeping loft doesn’t have a high ceiling, but the bed is right at the top of the stairs. I can see how it might be tough for somebody who is very tall, but for most people it’s fine. There’s also a couch downstairs in the living room if you want to sleep there.

Just a word about the managers who are not “hotel concierges” as the previous renter seems to believe. She and her husband were very helpful to us because we don’t speak French very well. (They speak great English by the way.) They advised us on the best way to get from the airport and they welcomed us on arrival, gave us the WiFi password (no internet problems for us) and showed us around, and even came to say goodbye on the day we left. They also explained where to find things around town.

The town was awesome, with two beaches and lots to do; we did lots of cheap water sports and sailing, as well as hiking, and seeing lots of the neighboring areas. Plus eating of course.

We’ll definitely try to stay here again. It was awesome.

Not my idea of a dream.

  • 3 of 5

I booked a 2- week stay at Laurie’s Dream. The first floor corner unit is centrally and ideally located with beautiful sea views from its windows creating a bright cheery great room. However, it also sits just above the very busy Promenade du Soleil which is a main thoroughfare and gets constant traffic [trucks, buses, cars, motorcycles and vespas]. When, before booking, I asked whether it was noisy, the concierge emailed me back that it was “very quiet” when the windows are closed, which was not true. It was noisy and stuffy when the windows were closed as it did not have air-conditioning. I vacated Laurie’s Dream and transferred to a quiet hotel room for the last few days of my 2-week stay in Menton.

As to the condition of the apartment, when I arrived neither the WiFi or TV were working, there were only a few wash-thinned towels and the apartment was only superficially cleaned. The dingy bathroom had a fabric shower curtain which was stained and not waterproof, the bath mat was old and dirty. The clothing closet, which doubled as a storage closet, had only a few usable hangers and I had to remove the vacuum cleaner, mop and bucket and dust mop, in order to be able to use it. The kitchen had caked-on grime in some places and a dirty floor mat. All very disconcerting when facing a two week stay.

I called the concierge about the foregoing on Friday evening after I arrived and she and her husband did not come until late Monday morning to repair the WiFi and TV leaving me without the service for nearly 3 days. She also brought new hangers, a new plastic shower curtain, removed the dirty bath mat, and said she would bring additional new towels at the end of that week, which she did. While the concierge rectified some of the apartment's issues, it was not ready for paying guests when I arrived.

Prachtig, ruim opgezet !

  • 4 of 5

Ons verblijf was goed, ik (vrouw 52 jaar )samen met mijn 2 dochters van 16 en 17 jaar ,verbleven wij 8 nachten in dit ruime appartement. Fijn van alle gemakken voorzien,stoeltjes en parasols voor op het strand ,zelfs srandlakens ,ruim schone handdoeken !

De vide was erg laag om daar te slapen ging wel goed maar toch heeft mijn dochter vaak haar hoofd gestoten . Voor wat kleinere kinderen is het ideaal,zodat ze kunnen staan ,het was extreem warm dus was het erg fijn dat er ventilatoren waren maar airco zou ook best fijn geweest zijn ,het koelde snachts niet af.maar verder fijn zo dicht bij alles ,oversteken en je ligt op het strand ,heerlijk winkels loop afstand. .Vriendelijk ontvangen door de eigenaar Catherine,kon met alle vragen bij haar terecht ,bij problemen konden we haar zo bellen.

Zeker een aanrader wie van zon ,zee en gezellige drukte op de boulevard houdt !!
