Michael was a great host and his house was really nice. The garden was perfect for having a nice cup of coffee in the morning. I have only positive things to say about our stay. Wi-fi was good. The location is close enough to the city center, and it's easy to get to the beaches as well using public transport. Thanks Mike!

Michael was the prefect host...very laid back and yet nothing was too much for him. The house is lovely and easily big enough for a family. We have two teenagers and there was more than enough space. There is a tram directly outside the house on the street... Sadly it was not running due to upgrade works when we were there. However there was a replacement bus which got us into the centre of town in 10 mins We used the velomagg bikes to get home.. Nearly all downhill...and there is a bike station at the corner of the street....very easy Staying out of the centre has so many advantages...parking the car and getting out to the great beaches without tackling the horrific Montpellier traffic are just two. We couldn't fault our stay.. Great house, great host, great garden and great location!!

Good stay - very nice house close to the beach (10' by car) and the city center (15' by tram). The host and his family were very friendly and helpful.

Milena and I thoroughly enjoyed both the apartment and the host and his family. They helped us find restaurants that were fantastic and many other interesting places. The apartment is very spacious, clean and is just beautiful. But the family (and Kimbo, their beautiful labrador) made our stay very special and pleasant. We thank them for their generosity and warmth and the use of their beautiful home. It is ideally located by the way.

August in Montpellier was a wonderful experience. Michael was as an great host, the house was comfortable and fully equipped, the garden was very nice with a lot of shade. For our family an ideal place to enjoy a relaxed holiday with some swimming in the sea, sightseeing in the neighbourhood and ofcourse a lot of nice food. A place to feel immediately at home!

We had a lovely time there at our Family get together. Michael and his Wife were very helpful; the accommodation is very comfortable and has everything and more to make a stay there enjoyable.

We are a family of five and had a nice, relaxing stay at Mike's place. It is conveniently located (close to highway, airport, tram stop across the door), so easy to get to the beaches, city centre or surrounding areas. We particularly liked the shaded garden for outdoor dining. Mike was on vacation while we were there, but he had a local friend who took good care of us. Would recommend as a great base to explore Montpellier, its beaches and the region (check-out kayaking on the Herault!)
