Nous vous demandons d'être soigneux avec l'intérieur et les objets laissés sur place, de rendre le logement à votre départ aussi propre qu'il ne l'a été à votre arrivée.
We had a lovely stay in Anne & Sebastien's spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped apartment. The photos on the website showcased the place perfectly and were very accurate. We were warmly greeted by Sebastien's brother, Guillaume, who was very helpful in answering all our questions. Communication with the family was very good. We were unlucky enough to have a lot of rain during our visit to Noumea so spent perhaps a little more time than anticipated in Anne & Sebastien's lovely apartment and we especially appreciated the spa pool. For future visitors: We used the buses (a car park is available) to travel to the City (less than a 10 min ride), a flat rate of F2.10 and a service that ran to schedule most of the time. The bus stop (a white pillar) was up the road, past the handy grocery shop, and round the corner. The main beaches and tourist area of Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons were another bus ride. The information centre in the city was very comprehensive and helpful. The museums and architecturally stunning cultural centre were very interesting and the aquarium worth a visit. If dining out, we would recommend Au P'tit Cafe, excellent food and service, and La Terrasse in the Hilton Hotel was very good. Our meal at Le Bilboquet was disappointing. Best coffee was at Malongo Cafe on Anse Vata Beach. L'Annexe Cafe in town by the information centre was friendly and good for a snack lunch. Had the weather been better we would have snorkelled via watertaxi from Anse Vata to Ile aux Canards. We had a super relaxing time at Anne & Sebastien's apartment and would recommend it.
Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour dans l’appartement d’Anne et Sébastien. Sa trouvaille était pour nous une vraie chance! Il est en effet très difficile de pouvoir louer à Nouméa un appartement de cette taille, si beau et si bien situé, au calme et en plus avec un extérieur. La terrasse donne sur un paysage de verdure, elle est confortablement aménagée avec un super barbecue. Le petit espace jardin longeant un des côtés de l’appartement donne une impression d’espace très agréable. L’appartement est très bien équipé et spacieux. Sébastien est l’hôte idéal : disponible et très réactif tout au long de notre séjour, il s’est montré attentif et très discret à la fois. Tous nos échanges ont eu lieu dans un climat de confiance et en toute simplicité. Nous ne pouvons que recommander cette location.
Great apartment and convenient location (we had a car). Fast, efficient communication from the hosts. However it was very noisy, we weren't informed that there was a large construction site right next door which started at 7am six days a week and went all day. Also there were a couple of safety issues - the front on the dishwasher control panel was shattered which resulted in multiple cuts and some broken wood left on the deck left a deep wound in one person's leg.
WE really enjoyed staying in this lovely, bright , spacious and very modern open-plan apartment in Noumea! There were 4 of us - 2 adults and our 2 boys (9 and 16).
The outside deck is great with comfy seating, BBQ, lovely spa pool and a pretty view out to the (website hidden) is also very private too.
Anne and Sebastien were there to greet us on arrival and were very easy to contact during our stay too.
During your stay in Noumea make sure you head out to the nearby islands of Ile aux canards and Ilot Maitre by water taxi. A visit to the island of Ile des pins by boat or plane is also an amazing trip to do !
Noumea offers really good snorkelling for those who are into discovering and getting up close to the beautiful tropical fish, coral and other wildlife such as the turtles who live in the lagoon!
All in all a very good place to stay! Many thanks to Anne and Sebastien for letting us stay in their lovely home! :)
We loved coming home to Sebastien and Anne's apartment, it is really nice and easy to live in, the spa and extensive video collection were well used.
Sebastien welcomed us with some tips and lovely fresh fruit.
Some tips for future guests would be to make sure you have a good map of New Caledonia, and if hiring a car get a little one so it is easy to park and get around in. For those of you coming from N.Z. you will be driving on the other side of the road - this takes some getting used to! shop at the market on the waterfront each day for fresh produce and fish,this is really affordable and use the local supermarkets, the apartment is well equipped for cooking.
Get on to the outer islands if possible, even the little island just off Anse Vata is worth visiting for a day, take a picnic and go snorkeling.
Overall we were very happy with our stay, and would recommend it
Very nice and informative hostess and host. Nice and well-equipped apartment in a nice area.
