This was our first VRBO experience and we were unsure what to expect. We had chosen this unit because it was central to the part of our journey that explored the Normandy coast. The property is listed as being in Hermanville-sur-Mer but, in fact seems to be in Lion-sur-Mer and therein was our only difficulty with an otherwise excellent accommodation, we could not find it. The photo is of the back of the building and so could not locate it visually from the street. We were given an address but even with the aid of a GPS and asking at several small hotels and businesses in the area, we could not find the property since address numbers change as town jurisdictions change while remaining on the same roadway. We passed it 4 times in the search. Additional information such as a cross street, the name of a business across the street and/or across the street from a church would have helped.
The accommodation was on the second floor of the building, entering from the back door. Angled parking was on the street in front. The unit was clean, bright, large and spacious, fully equipped including a dishwasher, spartan in its décor and included WiFi, perfect for the day travel needs of a party of 4. Bed sheeting was an extra charge in cash to the owner. The 2 bedrooms had ensuite showers but shared a toilet. We were met by Francois who showed us around, gave necessary instructions with regard to garbage regulations, how to use the locks, etc. and directed us to local groceries where we could get what we needed. It was a most satisfying accommodation for our needs. We trust Francois found it as clean as we found it. We thank him for his hospitality.
My wife and I loved this little home in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of the French countryside. We were able to rent a car and tour the Normandy beaches with no trouble at all, as the place seemed to be well-located near the main roads and highways of the northern region. Audrey was extremely accommodating and even provided bikes for us in case we wanted to tour the area a bit more (Pegasus Bridge, a couple restaurants, a brewery, etc.)! We had an overall wonderful experience!
