Joan Hanafin has rented our Nice apartment #74214 on several occasions. She has been an ideal tenant, communicates well, leaves the flat on departure in immaculate condition and is appreciative. No problems at all. Excellent philip graham 3/28/2018 10:01:00 AM
Joan and Jack Hanafin are literally the best tenants we have ever had at our apartment in Florence. They took wonderful care of our home, respecting all our requests as regards the maintenance of the flat and leaving it perfectly clean after their departure. Also, they complete paperwork efficiently and make payments fully and speedily.They are exemplary tenants, I recommend them most highly. Excellent Annick Chapdelaine 12/6/2013 11:29:00 AM
