Jack met me as arranged in a nearby street. This was a relief to someone who was using airbnb for the first time and because the taxi driver was unable to access the appt in the narrow streets. I was taken with my case carried, up the stairs and shown the appt and its amenities and how to work them. Apart from problems with getting English on the TV, I found the appartment convenient and clean and Jack a good host, willing to listen and to help. A welcoming bottle of wine was cold in the fridge. It was also very convenient to have tea and coffee and salt and pepper and oil---the basics___in the pantry. Re the TV, despite the many channels in French, the ones available in English, other than CNN and BBC news channels were few. As I was there for 8 nights on my own, some good TV would have been great. The water is hot and the shower works well. However the "bathroom" is tiny, consisting only of the shower, curtained off. There is a separate toilet. There is a good washing machine, but nowhere to hang washing except outside the window, quite hard to manage. thank you very much Jack

I didn't expect to be back at Jack's apartment at that time but I managed to go back! What a treat! It was very nice to be back in the flat and see everyone again and meet Nina. Jack's assistants had prepared the flat again, and everything was very neat and nicely arranged. It is such a great location in a lovely street in Vieux-Nice. It feels like a little village, and within a few minutes' walk you are by the sea and can enjoy breathtaking sunsets or at the Castle Hill with its gorgeous vegetation and stunning views. Jack's place is very cosy and really feels like a home. On my final evening Jack, Nina and I cooked and had a lovely time together. I look forward to seeing you all again soon. All the best!

Thank you, Jack, for making our stay in Nice amazing! It was great to talk to a fellow American while in France. Jack's recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing are spot-on. The apartment itself is very cool with antique furniture from Jack's grandmother. It's located extremely close to the tram and not too far from the beach by walk. Overall, great experience! Would recommend for a group in Nice.

I stayed in Jack's place due to a problem at the original accommodation I had booked. What a fortunate situation this tuned out to to be! He kindly welcomed me on very short notice on a Sunday and his 2 assistants even walked me to the flat and helped carry my luggage.  His flat in Vieux-Nice is really lovely, very clean, very well-equipped, and the location is excellent. Jack is a very caring human being who does a lot of good around him and I am grateful I got to meet him. I've had lots of interesting conversations with him and his friends. Jack even went with me to the station. I know I'll be seeing him again soon. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a host. All the best, Florence
