Really Nice Studio in Nice!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Kay & Guy’s studio apartment for 7 nights, because it:

1) Was spotless; the bathroom in particular was sparkling clean and had a wide shower stall with great water pressure

2) Had high-speed wifi (enough to stream Netflix-type movies without interruption)

3) Had a great clothes washing machine

Kay easy to reach and quick to respond.

The bonus was that Kay and her husband Guy picked me up from the train station, gave me a bottle of wine as a welcome gift, and drove me to the airport and then walked me to the correct airport terminal—I’m very grateful for these efforts, treating me as though I’m a family friend, not a tenant.

The studio was conveniently near a small and reasonably priced grocery store, Carrefour, 1.5 blocks around the corner.

The apartment itself had no detectable smell (but the building has an old-house odor, probably built up over time).

The wall unit air conditioner was very quiet (but its water discharged into a basin on the balcony, so the basin needed to be emptied twice a day if the AC ran constantly, as would happen in the middle of summer).

The pullout futon mattress felt surprisingly comfortable for a futon.

Because it was hot out, I kept the windows closed the entire time, so there was no outside noise. But the walls were so thin that I could hear a lot from next-door neighbor—all kinds of water usage, talking, etc. Thankfully the neighbors were pretty quiet generally.

Minor cons for me were the very limited closet space, and the building elevator to the apartment was temperamental—sometimes it came when called, and sometimes it was stuck on another floor. So if you have a problem climbing 4 sets of stairs, you’ll not be happy sometimes.

Love this apartment even more on 2nd visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Kay and Guy's lovely apartment. Our hosts were very warm and welcoming and it's the little things they do that made re-booking this apartment such an easy decision. Spacious, clean, well maintained and perfect location for exploring the city. Only a short walk from either beach or railway station and also on the main route for all the night buses that run in the city so we were able to eat out in the old town without having to worry about getting home late at night. Great bakery and supermarket within 5 minutes walk too so all in all the perfect place to stay in order to explore the whole coastal area, looking forward to a return visit sometime!

We had a fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this apartment. It was clean and well maintained. Kay and Guy were kind enough to pick us up from the airport. They were very helpful. The sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable. The air condition a blessing for Norwegians during a hot summer in Nice.The apartment is walking distance from central Nice and very near the train station. The area is calm. We enjoyed ourselves a lot and highly recommend the apartment

Beautiful studio apartment really nice stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the apartment for 5 nights in the middle of august. We had a really nice experience. The apartment was clean and neat and had a fully stocked kitchen with everything you may need for a short vacation stay - The wonderful hosts Kay and Guy even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine! Guy met us at the door to let us in and show us around the apartment. He was really nice and helpful and showed us a map of the area and places of recommendation to visit and eat. The area was nice and quiet and there was a small market and bakery really close by. We were also a short walk from the beach which was great! And the apartment came stocked with items we were able to use on the beach like mats and chairs.

Overall it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely come back and stay there again really soon!

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your experience and found the studio clean and neat. We're delighted that you felt very welcome. It's great to read your remarks on the nice and quiet area of our studio apartment, yet shops are within easy reach and with only a 10 minutes' walk to the beach to discover the famous Promenade des Anglais Nice is certainly ideal for holiday-makers who don't want to take a car: public transport is easy - and cheap. Just 1.5 euros on the bus/coach for a single ticket almost anywhere along the Cote d'Azur - to Cannes, Antibes, Eze, Monaco, Menton, Monte Carlo; and also inland - to St Paul de Vence and Grasse. And when you come back exhausted from your travels of the day, you have a lovely little balcony where you can unwind, with a glass of vine. Looking forward to welcoming you back to our bright studio apartment !

A 10 minuti dalla spiaggia!!Con 2 proprietari gentilissimi e disponibili, e non ti lasciano in strada con le valigie unavolta finita la vacanza. Siamo stati anche accompagnati in aeroporto al ritorno! Andateci a occhi chiusi!!!

The gentleman Guy and the gentlewoman Kay picked up us at the airport and led us to appartment. Very clean, comfortable sofa bed, wifi,french channel tv with usb, necessaire for info about Cote d'Azur, newbathroom and really equiped kitchen. Only 10 minutes far from sea and the center of Massena. very kind and helpful owners(i like the Guy's ringtone when call his wife:) ), they don't let you on the road with your luggage when you finish your staying but they bring you at the airport and that is very comfortable than go by bus... If you decide to go in Nice, you can go to Kay's apartment with close eyes for sure!!!!

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our week in Nice and we can say that this apartment was one of the reasons the vacation was so great. The location was perfect, everything was nearby – grocery stores, the railway station (about 10 minutes walk), and most importantly, the beach (about 10 minutes walk). The apartment was very convenient, in a quiet and safe area and had everything we needed for a perfect holiday.Kay and Guy were the nicest people you can ever meet, they were so welcoming, helped us out with so many things and picked us up from the airport. Thank you so much for everything!

Until next time,

Grete & Riina
