My wife and I stayed at Colin and Judith’s apartment for a week. Due to our early flight Colin offered us an early check in and was there with Judith to meet us. Great start to the holiday. The apartment is class everything you could hope for and more. Five minutes by taxi from airport. In a great location for shops cafes bars etc. Regular bus to Casmates & Ocean Village but we usually walked in only 10 minutes. Wonderful stay in a class apartment highly recommended. We will return.
We had a great 2 weeks holiday at colin’s apartment everything you need was there would recommend this apartment and will definitely go back next year
Thank you colin for a great stay
Wonderful holiday staying in Colin and Judiths first class apartment. Everything near to hand with bus connections available on the doorstep for further exploration.
Apartment had everything you would need on holiday and even the things you forgot you may need. Colin and Judith went above and beyond the call of duty, to greet us and say goodby at the end of our stay. Would highly recomend and look forward to staying there on our next visit, if available.
Apartment was lovely simple and just what we needed with a very comfortable bed. Unfortunately the building work going on next door was very loud and disturbing and the dust covered our windows making it not possible to open the sliding doors.
There was no garden furniture to enable you to sit out on the balcony which would have been a bonus.
The owners very friendly and accomodating to what was there.
The apartment was lovely and clean inside and ideally located to morrisons, McDonald s and easy walking distance to the bars and restaurants.
We would go back as long as there was no building work.
Recommend balcony furniture.
A lovely apartment, close to town, and handy for everywhere, it had everything you'd need, whether you just needed a base, or wanted to just chill out, and stay in the apartment the whole time.
Colin met us at the agreed time, answered all our queries, showed us how everything worked, and was as helpful as you could wish for. He also answered a couple of queries we had later very promptly.
You can book this apartment safe in the knowledge that you will be in a comfortable place with great views, and left alone to do whatever you choose, with help at hand if you should need it.
We'd be very happy to book again, and no doubt will.
We had a very enjoyable four night stay in Colin and Judith's fantastic apartment, and a great experience throughout our booking/arrival. All necessary information about arriving and collecting the keys was sent to us in good time, and Judith was kind enough to facilitate an earlier check-in time after cleaning (despite the fact she'd just gone all the way home, to come all the way back again!) Having just got off a plane after an early morning flight, I was incredibly grateful for this!
First impressions of the apartment were exceedingly good - it is true to the photos on TA. Very clean and furnished to a high quality. Fitted with all the appliances and mod-cons that you could possibly want for a short or longer stay (coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer). Effective air cooling system in place and also great Dyson fan provided in the bedroom. The thoughtful little 'extras' really made it as well - including the provision of shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, pods for the coffee machine and additional beach/pool towels. Large walk-in shower, with no issues with water pressure or temperature during our stay. Bed was very comfy - a good sized double with firm mattress and soft fresh linen.
The apartment benefits from sliding doors that open out to a little ledge balcony (there are true balconies off the communal corridors) and a great view of harbour. Shame about the new development going up next door, somewhat spoiling the view of the Rock. We also enjoyed the access to the residents' swimming pool atop of one of the neighbouring blocks (access through the buildings, so you don't need to go down to street level). Now the pool side certainly does have an exceptional view of the Rock!
The central location of the apartment is great - we walked it to and from the airport in less than 30 minutes and it's just 10 minutes' walk into the hub of town centre and all the restaurants, shops and bars found there. Large Morrisons Superstore (and a McDonalds, if you are that way inclined) are just across the street, so you can stock up on provisions for your stay. If you miss your home comforts, the Morrisons stocks most everything you would find in a UK store - we were particularly impressed with the huge range of real ales and ciders. Ocean Village also just around the corner, with more bars and restaurants.
We were hugely impressed by the apartment - definitely deserves the title of luxury - and will most definitely be looking to book again for our next return to the Rock. Would highly recommend it to others - we only stayed a few nights, but it certainly would comfortably accommodate you for a longer stay. Cannot thank Colin and Judith enough for letting us use it - we'll be back! :)
