We stayed in Ahmed's apartment for 5 days with our 1 year old and 4 year old in October. We were pleasantly surprised by how well-appointed the apartment was. Juan Les-Pins is a great location, relaxed yet only a short drive to Cannes and Nice. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos, and our host was very accommodating.
Ahmed emailed us the day we moved in to make sure all was well, and was quick to respond to queries we had. The check in process was quick and easy, even though we were almost an hour late due to bad traffic. It was then a quick drive to the local shopping complex for groceries and something for dinner.
While the complex itself is dated and looking a little shabby these days, Ahmed's apartment is clean, tidy and well cared for. We appreciated the new screens on the windows, because there were quite a few mosquitoes around!
All up, we had a great time and will likely stay here again in the future.

Myself, my wife and two daughters enjoyed a very happy weekend stay in this apartment. As said it has all you would need and more, quiet and near the beach. The concierge was pleasant and helpful, and all communications were also pleasant. I would be very happy to rent again and would recommend.
My brother, his wife and 8 month old baby stayed at this apartment for a week. First of all we love Juan les pin and wished we stayed in this town for entire visit. It is very laid back town, my family enjoyed the beach here better than Antibes. It caters to young families.
This apartment is exactly how it is advertised and the details we received after booking that it is not for those who want to party loud is absolutely true. It is apartment for those who want a quiet neighborhood and real vacation from the noise. the apartment is well maintained, very clean with all the necessities you need to cook and relax which was perfect for our family. Close to supermarkets, about 10 minutes to beach if you walk really slow, close to bakery everything is within walking distance. We walked to every place, took bus to cannes which was about 20 minutes ride (bus stop is about 5 minute walk from apartment) and the residents in this building are extremely nice. We wanted a quite vacation in a nice town and this apartment and this town was perfect. This place deserves 5 star review not just for apartment but for everything that went wrong on this trip which were a few. From time of booking the owner was very responsive and whatever questions I had I would receive a detailed response right away. Every detail about apartment and few tips on supermarkets, train and buses were in documents sent prior to stay which is more than you would get from most hotels. including 5 star hotel. When we checked in we met with Eloisa who is the nicest and the most helpful person to greet you. We panicked (although think Eloisa was more stressed than my sister in law about the problem :)) as soon as we heard the washing machine is broken and she wasn't sure when we would receive a new one given it was also a holiday weekend but she will try her best to resolve it. She was so sorry about the problem as she didn't realize until that morning and as we were talking smoke was coming out of the machine. We had a baby with us so washing machine was must on our list but she offered to wash our clothes until machine arrived. She and the owner went out of their way to try and get a machine in the apartment . Ahmed contacted me directly to apologize and kept me updated on progress to get new one offered to pay for any laundry if we decide not to wait or Eloisa will pick up our laundry. We needed clean towels, we contacted Eloisa and she dropped them off right away. When machine finally arrived eloisa was there to make sure it was installed correctly and cleaned up the kitchen afterwards. Later, the tire to my niece's pram was flat the following day which meant we wouldn't be able to explore as much until fixed.. Since we didn't know the area I contacted Ahmed for information, not only he sent me the two bike stores he found but he also called them for us. I later found out he was calling the bike stores all the way from Dubai as he was out of town during our stay. The entire time I had no idea Ahmed was fixing all the problems and extremely responsive from Dubai. Then the day we checked out we found out to get a taxi in Juan les pins always best to call the day before, since we hadn't done that there was no guarantee we would get a taxi that day given it was busy weekend.. Eloisa called her friend who happens to be a taxi driver to help out, and although the taxi driver was running late for a passenger she came by to pick us up. All these issues could have turned a great vacation to a bad one. However, the hosts went beyond what normal hosts would do to rectify a problem or help us with a problem and that is what you want when things go wrong in a foreign country.
If you want a clean, quiet, well maintained apartment in Juan les pins which is close to everything this is place to be and we will go back to this town and to this apartment. We ate every meal at the apartment, we cooked every day, other than there is no oven, the kitchen was equipped with everything we have at home we didn't even miss the oven. So unless you are planning on baking a cake on vacation the kitchen will meet your cooking needs. It was great vacation and one of the best part about this vacation were the hosts. You expect things to go right, but when they unexpectedly go wrong you want hosts that have a sense of urgency about fixing washing machine when broken and are responsive to the problem. I never had to follow up with them they informed me twice a day on progress. They are exceptional hosts which is why we will be back. Thank you Ahmed and Eloisa we enjoyed our stay and the extra help you provided which is well beyond this review.
We stayed at Tomek's apartment, family of four (two kids 10 and 13) and my mother (60 plus), in late June. Apartment was in a walking distance to the beach. The Patisserie and the Market were also in walking distance and thus all of our needs were met. At the end of June, the apartment did not need an air conditioner (and as a Texan, this is a must for us). The Kitchen was adequate for our needs. The two bedrooms allowed us to spread out. The Wifi met the needs of the 13 year old with a laptop very nicely (which is high praise) Eloisa took care of my mom when a tick decided to travel with her from Rome. All in all, if you are looking for a quiet place in the south of France, this is the place to be.
This apartment was exactly what we were looking for. Great distance to beach. so relaxing. beautiful place and Tomek was fantastic to lease from. They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable - they even got us to the grocery store as soon as we got there! I would strongly recommend this apartment. Great walking distance to the beach and one euro to nice or cannes. fantastic.
