A beautiful and typically French apartment just a five minute walk away from the Palais de Festival and the beautiful Cannes beaches and old port. Located on the corner of the famous cobbled road St Antoine in Le Suquet. The property has recently been renovated to a great standard. High ceilings and typical huge French doors lead to a beautiful balcony with sea-views out to the port and bustling walk ways below. There is a separate bathroom and toilet alongside a well fitted kitchen.
This apartment is in the beautiful area of Le Suquet. It's in a typically old French building and is the top floor of a block of 3 apartments. It has large floor to ceiling French doors which give you a seaview of the port and bustling village below. It has a bright airy feel to it as it has lovely high ceilings. The kitchen is separate and is fully equipped with everything you would hope to find in a modern day apartment including a nice big fridge. The bathroom is a good size with a shower and washing machine in it. Both have side views over looking the bustling streets and roof tops of Cannes.
There is great secure parking just a two minute walk behind the apartment. Costs are around €53 for a four day pass, €70 for seven days and €135 for 30 days. You can also pay hourly and daily etc. The 24 hour rate is around €17 per day. There is also quite a lot of free parking within a five or six minute walk and plenty of metres outside too.
We also own and rent out the first floor apartment. which is similar in style and size but without the balcony.
The apartment has complimentary high speed WIFI, French free to air channels, UK SKY tv (free channels) and a playstation 3 with games and dvds.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is typically booked for 2 people but can sleep 2 extra people on the sofa bed in the living room. We tend not to rent it out to any more than 2 adults as it would be quite cramped.
The sofa would be ok for kids
We try to accomodate early and late arrivals wherever possible. No pets please unless we have talked about it first.
We live in the apartment for large chunks of the year. It is our home so please try to look after it and let us have it back roughly in the same condition you received it if you can.
We have a standard rental agreement that we ask guests to complete before arrival. This protects you and us. We ask for a copy of your ID and proof of address before arrival
CANNES FILM FESTIVAL - The apartment can only be booked for the entire period and at a cost of €3300 in total.
MIPIM - The apartment can only be booked for a three day minimum period
Our new favorite place in Nice.
Central and spacey. You can even see the sea from the small terrace. Wayne is a good host.
You can't go wrong with this one, and we would not hesitate to come back.
In all honesty, I am of two minds about this place.
The good -- responsive host (although I picked up keys from the restaurant across the street and had some trouble opening the door, the host was very responsive via sms) and the flat is centrally located, being very close to the bus station and train station. Washing machine is a nice plus if you're staying for more than a few days. I personally love architecture from this period so I liked the feel of the environment.
The not so good -- it is very clear that this flat gets a ton of traffic and could use some additional care as a result. For example, the fridge was barely working and the mirrored closet doors in the bedroom were broken (the hosts are aware and working on getting both of those repaired). The flat could use a fresh coat of paint - there were stains on the walls in bathroom and bedroom (I think a coffee spill) and a deep clean of the rug (some stain there, too). Not a deal breaker for me but could be for others. I live in a 18th century building in West Village in NY and I know old flats are hard to keep pristine but I do think this place could be in better shape with a little bit of extra care. Speaking of NY living - this flat is not for those who mind noise until wee hours, as some other reviewers have mentioned. There was a saxophone duo playing at the restaurant below until 1:30/2 am. Something to keep in mind if you plan on relaxing - it's an old building so it will sound like they're playing next to you!
Hi Sanja, thanks for your review. As discussed the fridge has now been replaced and there is a brand new fridge/freezer in the apartment- apologies for any inconvenience this caused but please know that I had it replaced as soon as I could.
With regards the noise I'm afraid that is one of the sacrifices that has to be made in order to be located in the heart of Cannes. As you know it is situated in a great spot and the atmosphere and noise that comes with it is part of the 'real Cannes'. The summer is often noisier but things should be dying down now as it draws to a close. I have stayed in many places around the area and to be honest I think you'd be hard pushed to find something around there that isn't affected by some noise- unless of course you stay in a hotel.
Anyway, your comments have been taken on board and I hope you had a safe journey back to the US.
The apartment completely matched up to expectations based on the photographs and previous reviews. It is perfectly located on the corner of Rue Meynadier and Rue Saint Antoine, a great area for eating out in Cannes. Our arrival and departure went smoothly, and Wayne was very accommodating despite us having to change our ETA twice. We would definitely recommend and return.
Wayne was a great host. We did not meet him but he was regularly in contact with us. The apartment was spacious and had a great layout. The neighbourhood was as expected which was nestled right in the Le Suquet which is close to everything within walking distance and traditional style restaurants. Try dining at Astoux Brun and Le Relais des Semailles which are both within 1-2 min walk from apartment. Oh and the Marche Forville!
Great apartment, great location, exceptional experience! Wayne was his son Harry are very responsive and had everything in place for our uneventful arrival and key pick-up. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, providing exactly what he advertises, and is truly in the heart of Cannes, with access to everything and anything in town you could want to do. Great restaurants on the doorstep, harbor, beaches and shopping minutes walking away, and parking next door that sells very affordable multi-day access with unlimited in-out privileges.
Being in the middle of a busy part of Cannes, be prepared for street noise up until about 12 a.m., but after that the area is very quiet (we slept with windows wide open throughout every night. Also be prepared for a steep, three-floor stair climb to the apartment, so would recommend avoiding very heavy luggage if there's going to be any difficulty carrying it upstairs.
Would definitely stay again the next time we're in town!
A friend and I stayed in Wayne's apartment the 1st weekend of May 2014 and had an amazing weekend.
The apartment was perfectly situated on a cute little french street set just one road back from the sea front, you can even see the marina from the balcony!! There are so many restaurants and bars around, we loved the street just up the hill next to the apartment (Rue St Antoine) we had a great dinner at Le Relais Des Semailles, a gorgeous little French restaurant just opposite the apartment, and enjoyed drinks in the little restaurant literally underneath the apartment where some evenings they have a pianist and lady singing lovely French songs. The Moules restaurant also up the hill was great, not sure of its name though.
Everything was very clean and tidy when we arrived and the apartment had everything we needed.
We had one very rainy day and so the large collection of CD's and DVD were perfect for a Duvet afternoon on the sofa and the Balcony was perfect for breakfast and afternoon drinks. We utilised the the market (Marche Forville) round the corner for fruit and a Boulangerie opposite it for bread & croissants.
Harry was very attentive and checked in a couple of times over the weekend to make sure everything was ok and arranged a very easy and prompt key collection from the cleaner. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to visit Cannes and will definitely stay there again next time I'm there!!!
We really loved Cannes during easter time and felt like home in Waynes little apartment. It's very cosy and nicely decorated. Great location with all the little restaurants just around the corner! Very close to train and bus station, too. Perfect for a trip to relax and discover Cote d'azur - and for sure recommended!

Before I get started about myself I just want to say that our villa has SEVEN BEDROOMS so if you do not see availability it may still well be worth asking anyway.
Also, we work in the catering industry for TV and Festivals so the summer can be completely MAD for us, meaning I do not always reply as quick as I would like. Often we are in a field with no internet or phone which mean my responses can also be a bit brief at times. I really do want to write long notes sharing my love and experiences of Cannes and Airbnb but it is just not always possible.Please feel free to chase, scream and shout if you do not get an answer as quick as you need.
I am a busy 48 year old living with my partner Lucy who is a chef. We LOVE parties and food and are lucky enough to run an catering and events company between the UK and France where we have the most wonderful clients including some really fab celebs. We have five great teenage kids and when we are not living in Cannes we have a home in the hills just twenty minutes in-land. You can check out Red-Radish on the web if you need any cooking or even just some advice on the region!
I also love and work on the internet and you can find me on most good social media and up-and-coming sites. Isn't airbnb great btw! Lucy is sports mad and ex-GB windsurfing champion and a pretty darn fine marathon runner too. Our eldest son is in the British ski team. I am naturally fit but more management team than naturally gifted athlete. I am far too clumsy for that!
The notes on airbnb suggests I tell you five things I can't live without: I was going to be corny and state the obvious by listing my family but as there are six of them I really couldn't decide which one to upset by leaving out. Lucy does the cooking remember, so on that basis I am going to plump for Travelling, Cannes, my crappy old speed boat moored in Cannes, the internet, good wine, oysters, fresh Pasta, thin Pizzas, Asparagus and all food in general. Oh dear I seem to have got carried away with food again.
My favourite movie is Le Grand Bleu by Luc Beeson where the cinematography is just wonderful and really makes me what to get in the car and hit the road. I also adore the car he drives which a little bashed up Fiat 500. I have seen plenty of the world but have a lot more travelling left in me yet. We love boutique and chic including camping glamping and you are far more likely to find us in a secluded camp site than you are a five star hotel. Partly because the kids have spent all our money but mostly because we just like being outside!
Lastly I really do know the French Riviera well so please do hit me up if you need any advice (even if you are staying somewhere else) regards things to do, places to see and of course my favourite topic of food.
Thanks for reading this far and have a great day!
