John OBrien, and family From New York
We could not have asked for more from our stay in the Nice Villa. The whole process with Patrick and Akiko was smooth and it was a joy to coordinate our vacation with them. We stayed for a month and loved every single day. We corresponded before arriving in Nice and we felt clear on the process throughout. On starting our visit, we met Patrick and Akiko at the Villa and everything was explained clearly and was documented as a backup. The villa was superb. The gardens were manicured, the pool and hot tub were clean and a joy. Outside, there were loungers and areas to sit or eat, all of which were lovely. We used the barbeque and it was great to cook outside while overlooking the views of Nice and the Mediterranean. We could sit for hours looking out to sea during the day or night. Inside, the house was well decorated and clean. We were using one bedroom initially, but we had guests visiting and Akiko set up two other rooms for us in advance. The rooms were all en-suite and with lovely views. The living room, dining room and kitchen were all very comfortable and well equipped; at no point did we need anything that was not available. The final room that we used, was the movie room, which was unbelievable and just like sitting in a movie theater. There were over 1,000 movies, almost all of them in English. Nice itself was wonderful and just a short drive or bus ride into town. The bus was only €1 each into town and a nice way to get there without worrying about the car, but we also walked into town a couple of times. What a fantastic city to visit for food, culture, beach and visiting the South of France. Patrick and Akiko were in constant touch throughout our stay and really were fabulous and we now consider friends. They even got us some baby items for our little girl, so we had a high chair, baby cot and bouncy chair throughout our vacation. Never once did we have a problem and everything was ideal for us. We really look forward to staying there again.
