I rent an air-conditioned studio 32 m2, both elegant and functional, located in Cros de Cagnes, a few meters from the sea
This south-west facing studio is very bright.
The Summer and Winter air ensures an ideal temperature.
It is ideal for a couple but can accommodate up to 5 people.
It has a double bed in mezzanine, a sofa bed and extra single bed. A baby bed is also provided free of charge upon request.
It has a bathroom with toilet and washing machine. The linen is fully furnished (linens for beds, towels, kitchen towels).
The kitchen is fully equipped with a small fridge / freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, kettle and toaster.
Dishes, pots, dishes and all utensils are left available.
You can eat outside on the large balcony or relax on a sun lounger.
The studio is conveniently located 150 meters from the seafront promenade which you can explore on foot, bike or rollerblades!
The city of Cagnes sur Mer has a bicycle rental (bicycles blue, very competitive and flexible terminal is 200m from the apartment), but many locations are available directly on the promenade.
Many shops, bars, restaurants and nightclubs are nearby. Provençal market also takes place two times a week.
You will be close to Cannes (Cannes Film Festival May 16 to 27, 2012), Nice (Carnival 17 February to 4 March 2012), Grasse (Centifolia Rose festival in May, Perfumes Fragonnard, Gallimard), Mougins, Biot (Biot glassware), Juan les Pins and Antibes.
Train station Cros de Cagnes is 100 meters.
Parking is free in front of the station and you can take the line that makes the Riviera, to Monaco and Ventimiglia.
Nice airport is 12km, many buses and shuttles come and go. € 1 bus to go directly in the center of Nice.
It was a really great stay! Anabelle and her husband are very nice and helpful people! Apartment is great situated: 2 minutes from beach, bus station, gare sncf.
And thank you very much for your hospitality. We were living there for 3 weeks. Anabelle was ready to help us in everything. There is also a terrace with a beautiful view on mountains. And it is very silently in apartment.
I liked it very much and will recommend to all.
The location of the aparment is great - across from the beach, and parking is safe and cheap nearby. The apartment is not for 5 people, maybe the 5th could be a small child - but overall tight for even 4 people. coimmunication with host was frustrating as i wrote a few messages but received no feedback for a number of days. and the phone number on the site is for the apartment and not the host's mobile or home phone number - therefore could not contact her. Get mobile number from host before you leave
Stayed family of 4 persons. Perfect location, quiet area,
excellent sea nearby. Nice apartment, friendly host. The apartment fits the description and photos, everything is working properly. I'd love to come again. Highly recommended.
Nice area where the studio is situated. Very close to the lovely beach with smooth stones and clean water. Free beach equipped with lots of showers and toilets. We can't recommend the studio though. It was dirty, dusty and lots of things were broken, such as cupboard in the toilet and wall behind the stove. We also saw two cockroaches which was rather disgusting. However, the area is great and we will return to this place again just not to Anabelle's studio.
Nice little apartment in a great location! Nice market and bread store just below. I was made to feel like part of the neighborhood right away by these friendly neighbors. Annabelle was there to greet us, and was very helpful. An easy bike ride got us to Nice, but our favorite pastime was relaxing on the beach 2 blocks from the front door!!
Anabelle was great!! The apartment, while very small, work well for me and 3 other large American men. It is ideally located 2 minutes (walking) from the beach.
The location of the place is great, it is 1 block from the beach. The host is very nice, she gave us a lot of information for how to get around.
But the house is not clean when we arrive, I would think she shouldn't charge us clean fee. She left the sheets and asked us to change them ourselves. And a couple of places need to be fixed. I would say for the price of the apartment, it worth the money, but we shouldn't be charge for any clean fee.
Also we emailed in the morning for our arriving time, but got no response, and tried to call her number for about 1 hour until we finally reach her, so we waited outside the apartment for about 1.5 hour.
Only a stone's throw from the beach, this apartment was adequate for our needs. There were four of us so it was a bit cramped, but it would be perfect for two or even three people. Kitchen was fully equipped, and there's a small island table where you can have meals. There's also a table on the balcony, which is great for chilling at night. The apartment gets very strong afternoon sun, though, so it heats up like a sauna. Thankfully, there's air conditioning which cooled the apartment in no time. Had a great time =)
I held off writing this review as I contacted the host to try to resolve an issue which was the cleaning of the apartment but no response from her.
Im sorry to have to write this review as i have only positive experiences using AIRbnb for the past few months whilst using it 100% on my travels.
Anabelle was kind enough to pick us up from another location 15 mins away and drive us to the apartment. Upon arrival she explained she didnt have time to do anything and told us to change the sheets ourselves from the previous customers. This meant in no way shape or form was it clean. I know its not the previous customers fault but there was fecal matter still around toilet, pubic hairs around bathtub and generally a disgusting place to expect guests to sleep. My girlfriend spent 2 hours cleaning the apartment on arrival and 1.5 hours before departure. I kindly asked the cleaning fee be waived for this effort in an email to host but no response.
The apartment itself is falling apart, there are light globes missing from sockets, the blinds on windows are broken so not alot of privacy (and its a school across the road), mould on the walls, pigeons poo on your clothes when you hang them out to dry, bathroom need renovating, apartment needs painting, building is very old and lift is ancient.
Ok enough of that.
On a positive note the location is lovely, its down the street from the beach, the shops in the immediate area are amazing and reasonably priced, the buses are just around the corner, train just up the road.
I would recommend this area to stay in but definately NOT this apartment. Its not fit for human beings to stay in this condition & I live am Australian Thailand so im used to on occasions some less than desirable conditions and am quite understand and patient when needs be.
Everything went fine. Good value for money.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
