To get to the apartment from the Airport of Nice Cote d'Azure:
Due to the recent changes to the Nice public transport system, if you are travelling from the airport, you cannot use the Aero ticket (€6) as a Single Day Pass (€5) to travel around Nice anymore. If time isn't a concern, this is the route I would suggest to get to the apartment (which costs only €1.50!):
1. Take Bus Route 23 or 99 from Terminal 1 (Free shuttle buses are provided between Terminal 1 and 2)
2. Alight at Thiers/Gambetta (~40minute journey)
3. Walk towards the bridge/tunnel
4. Turn left at Tzarewitch
5. Walk along Tzarewitch (~350m) until you see a Hospital/Clinic.
6. The apartment is opposite the Hospital/Clinic.

We liked our stay!
Walid and Nicolas are very friendly, they were avaliable for any questions. Check-in and check-out were arranged perfectly. A little issue with electricity in the living room was solved professionaly and immediatly. Appartment is just like described, well equiped, everything were clean. Also, I can note that internet access were better then we expected.
I'd certanly recommend to stay here.
Walid’s place was an absolutely great place to stay in Nice. It was very spacious and extremely clean, definitely great for a family or a small group of friends. It was a short travel from downtown and had many convenience stores and bakeries close by. We were welcomed by Nicolas who was very helpful and kind. Overall the stay was fantastic and I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to visit and explore Nice. A great apartment and great people. Thanks so much Walid and Nicolas!

The appartment is as described, the communication with Walid and his brother were excellent! It took about 15-20 minutes to reach the beach. There're some shops nearby. Also the Interned worked without problems. The only problem is that it's noisy if you open the windows.
When we got there we tried calling the numbers which were given to us one was off and one was not responding then called Walid on roaming,the house was on the main road and very noisy till late hours,long walk down to the beach and a steep climb on our way bac.
The bedsheets and towels were all worn off and old rest of the place was ok.
Any call with a foreign mobile phone is obviously on roaming. I provide my guests with free Wifi access codes before their arrival, so they can connect immediately at the apartment and save communication costs.
All windows in the apartment are double-glazed, with very efficient noise insulation.
The walking time to the beach (15 min) is clearly indicated in the listing. It is also possible to take the bus in front of the apartment to get closer to the beach.
I replace progressively old bed sheets and towels. They are all kept always clean.
Great place to stay
Very clean, near The beach, very spacious and confortable
Totaly recommend The place
We where a family of 5 and had a great time
We have spent an exellent week at Walid appartment. The appartment was very spacious and perfectly equiped for the family with 3 kids incl. a 7 month old baby. No need to repeat all the multiple advantages of this appartment previously mentionned in the other reviews.I confirm them all!
Walid brother was very welcoming and provided us very kind assistance. It was a pleasure to meet with them both on the personal aspect as well!
I recommend big time getting into this splendid experience.
The apartment was exactly as described, and our stay was very nice. It is a good sized place that was very comfortable for our faily of five, and everything was clean and in order. It is a bit of a hike down to the beach, but it is doable, and an quick drive if you aren't feeling energetic.
We stayed at Walid appartment for one week. Arrival was smooth and it was easy to find the appartment. Good location with 2 bus stops just at the corner. Appartment itself is well equiped. Thanks for our nice holiday in Nice!
It was really great staying at Walid's place during our recent visit to Nice. The flat looks exactly like the pictures. It was tidy and you have everything you need there. The apartment is very well located: 10-15 min walk to the sea and city center. Walid and Nicolas are great hosts, very friendly and helpful.
This is a beautiful big 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a lovely building. It is ideal for a large family with their own transportation. Be aware though, if you are planning to walk, it is a long steep climb back up from the beach. Old town, where all the night life is us at least a 40 minute walk, busses run infrequently if at all that late, and a taxi ride if you can find a taxi in the wee hours will set you back about 16 euros. There is also no supermarket nearby just a tiny poorly stocked local grocer.
We did not meet Walid personally though he was very prompt and professional by email and phone. The woman who represents him at the apartment does not speak English.
