I've travelled to Cannes and rented apartments there many times. This is one of the nicest I've rented. The location, halfway between the Croisette and Rue d'Antibes is the best. And about two blocks away on Rue Hoche there are a multitude of restaurants to choose from. The apartment itself is very well furnished although in perfect world there would have been additional seating in a comfortable armchair and footstool. What's particularly appreciated is that, unlike some rentals, the owner/manager, Klaus, was there to meet us when we arrived and answered all our questions about how various appliances worked, where the closest grocery store was, etc. Also, again unlike some rentals, there was adequate toilet paper, paper towels,soap, etc., to get us through to the next day or so...really important if you've just come off a 14 hour flight.
I was travelling with two friends, a couple, so they naturally took the bigger bedroom while I took the smaller one at the back of the apartment. The bed was comfortable, probably equating to an American queen sized, but the room was so cramped there was no room for even the smallest nightstand. I semi-rectified that by moving a straight chair next to the bed to hold my water bottle, alarm clock, etc. but in doing so I either had to keep the door open or move the chair to close and open it. This isn't a make-or-break issue, but something that I'm sure Klaus can figure out a solution for. Outside of that, we loved the apartment, the location, the music from the street outside (some late afternoons a really talented trumpet player did an impromptu concert -- lovely) and being right around the corner from Ferragamo, Van Cleef& Arpels, Chanel, Dior and all those other labels that are beyond my price range but which I love to gaze at. All in all, knowing how deceiving some apartment ads can be, this one is absolutely as advertised and you can't go wrong in staying here while in Cannes.
