From the beginning of our communication (first exchange of emails) right through our departure from the apartment itself Zela proved herself to be a wonderful, helpful host. She was there to meet us at the appointed time on our checkin-day and gave us a friendly welcome along with a helpful orientation to the apartment. She also offered to make herself available throughout our stay in case we had any questions or just wanted some help with directions, restaurant recommendations, etc. We could not have asked for more from a host than what Zela provided, from start to finish.
As well, everything about the listing was completely as advertised. Our expectations were all completely met or exceeded in every category. We stayed in four different apartments on our trip and Zela's was our favourite overall based on everything I have just mentioned, along with the attractiveness, comfort, location/appeal of the apartment itself, etc. It is spacious, comfortable, well furnished and equipped, we'll situated, and has a wonderful balcony overlooking the Promenade - a definite selling feature that is not to be overlooked when looking for an apartment in Nice. We enjoyed sunrises and sunsets alike from the balcony... a lovely little "extra" that cannot be experienced the same way from many other rental locations in Nice. This was one of the things that really drew us to this listing in the first place.
On the whole we cannot say enough good things about the apartment or about Zela as our host. On our departure day she was there to see us off and even helped us with our bags down to street level and to the bus stop, about 150 m away. Who does this?! She also checked on us by email a couple of times throughout our stay just to make sure everything was going okay.
To summarize, Zela was and is the consummate host and will take exceptional care to ensure your comfort and enjoyment should you choose to rent from her (which you really should if you are planning to visit Nice).
10 out of 10 for sure, without amy question.
