This is a stunning apartment and as the other reviews have stated beautifully furnished and very well thought out. Our stay was let down by the poor state of the swimming pool. We are regular visitors to Gran Canaria and always book a property with a pool, on our arrival we were surprised to see what appeared to be an almost luminous green pool! We queried this a couple of days later when we saw Paula and she informed us that she was not aware until she met us on arrival that the pool was in this condition. We said we were disappointed as the pool is a major part of our holiday (my husband goes out early in the morning to play golf whilst I normally stay at the pool) and Paula pointed us in the direction of the 2 beaches. I refuse to go swimming in the sea on my own as I believe it to be too dangerous. I would say if you are looking at this apartment get a guarantee from Paula that ALL of the facilities you are expecting (as per her advert) will be available. We would like to say that had it not been for the issue with the pool our stay would have scored 100% and we would not hesitate to return. You cannot wake up/go to sleep to a better view and the sound of the waves against the rocks below. The view was also fantastic for the thunderstorms we encountered during our week. There are several shops within walking distance of the apartment along with a choice of restaurants. At the opposite end of the beach is the San Agustin beach club hotel - we had a lovely day here spent at the pool. The best place to eat was down on the beach - Restaurante Balcon de San Agustin, great service and fantastic food. We ate here 3 times during our stay. We were able to park close to the apartment most days but it was always busy so we don't know what it would be like during the height of the season. We would also like to thank Paula for the bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival, this was a nice touch.
This self catering apartment was exactly as the photos show, if not better. It was just perfect, with high quality furnishings and accessories. An incredible amount of time has been spent on its design and the attention to detail.
The colour scheme was ideal in that it had a calming effect and it was lovely sitting at the table eating our breakfast with the window wide open, listening to the waves below.
It is in an ideal location if you're looking for some peace and quiet, with no through traffic and it is only the waves that you hear through the night.
However, some people might find it too quiet, as this is in a residential area/block and you will need to go elsewhere if looking for nightlife etc. It is easy to get a taxi though, as you can walk up the steps beside the car hire and wait outside the InterClub Hotel. Usually there are some waiting and if not, you can just phone them to request one.
There are some restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance. The Spar shop (5 mins away) has most things that you will need, but for a wider selection of fresh meat, you would be best to go elsewhere.
Paula was waiting for us when we arrived at the apartment and was extremely pleasant and helpful. We arrived to a lovely bottle of bubbly and chocolates which was a really nice touch.
We had such a relaxing holiday here and wouldn't hesitate to return.
The flat is very nice, looks beand new. The owner thought about every little thing, you can find everything what you need in house. The perfect sound of waves is giving you exellent sleep. The owner is very friendly. Will really recommend this place for everyone!!!
Beyond perfect. Tucked away in this quiet, unassuming apartment block is a hidden gem of an open plan property. Everything inside is new, the fixtures the fittings, the appliances the floors and so on and it is all modern and in perfect working order. Someone has really put their heart and soul into this place, even the appliances which are usually cheap brands in other properties are quite high end here, for instance the whirlpool washing machine, the russel hobbs kettle. It all helps make this apartment feel like home. From the cutlery to towels to the clothes iron to the wi-fi, it's all here for you.
The decor is lovely, calming modern contemporary and is just right. The light colours and glass fixtures reflect and augment the absolutely stunning sea view which is possibly the most beautiful we have ever seen. You are literally standing over the water with the sun sparkling on the waves down below, and with a magnificent sliding window which opens to give you a breathtaking open air panorama, this truly is a magical sight that you just cannot tire of.
On top of this, you have what is basically a private beach just around the corner, with never more than 5 or 6 people there at a time, perfect for swimming. There is a small pool in the courtyard also. If you need supplies there is a shop only 5 minutes walk away and a small bar just a round the corner.
We have never written a review like this before for any holiday property, but this property deserves it, choose this place and it will help make your holiday one to remember.
