This apartment is in a great location just across
the road from a really nice beach and handy all the stores and restaurants you will require. From the picture on the listing we thought we would be in a condo upstairs facing the beach and were a little surprised when we found that it was on the ground floor. However that turned out fine because it is in a large gated courtyard where we could sit out in the evening and have a meal or play cards and just enjoy it.
When you first walk into the apartment you are greeted by a charming looking large living,dining,kitchen area which is nice bright and cheery. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of cleaning supplies and a clothes washer and detergent provided.The bathroom was a nice size with a nice large shower.
The were two bedrooms and a pullout sofa in the livingroom are if needed.
The bedrooms were adequate and a good size by European standards. One with a queen size bed and the other with two singles. Our friends took the queen and we placed the two singles together to make a double. The mattresses were so comfortable with large comfy pillows.
We really liked this apartment and location but did have a few minor glitches when we first arrived. We found it hard to determine where the address was on Google maps.It appeared to be on Ave.Antonio Machado but the actual address is 4 Pje del Aguila. When we first arrived at the train station to get a taxi and asked the driver if the address we had was complete. When he said no,we called Miguel but discovered he doesn't speak English. We speak tourist Spanish but didn'the understand him. Luckily the taxi driver could speak some English and he talked to him and found the apartment. We met Miguel there and with our tourist Spanish we got along fine learning what we needed to know.
The only other thing we found but got used to is that in the back bedroom where we stayed ,there is a restaurant next door,and every evening around 11 you could hear what sounded like chopping in the kitchen for an hour.Must have been preparing food for the next day. We always have earplugs so this didn't bother us too much.
Overall we had a very nice stay aexcept for the few little glitches and we would probably stay here again.
