Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Tarifa - Apartment in Tarifa
One Double Bedroom apartment (max 4 persons) at the best beach in Tarifa
Brand new apartment at the town entrance, in a newly built complex on the beachfront. It has one double bedroom with two single beds, 1 fully equipped bathroom, dressing room, living room with an open-plan kitchen, sofa bed where two can sleep, ADSL/WIFI, Ipod/ Iphone stereo, 32'' LCD TV and DVD. It also has a nice terrace, ideal for having breakfast, eating or dining. It includes bathroom towels (not beach towels) and bed linen. The complex has a very nice shared pool and garden sheltered from Levante winds.
I have just finished furnishing it at the end of July 2010, so everything is brand new. The appartment is conveniently located in front of a large and well prized supermarket (Mercadona), new kite and winsurf gear and clothing stores and the 'Café del Mar' restaurant & nightclub. The beach by the appartment, called 'Playa de los Lances', is 150 meters away and the old part of town is 1.500 meters away too, so it's like a 15-20 minutes walk

Hi! My name is Marco, I was born in San Sebastian, a beautiful seaside city north of Spain, in 1971 and I am actually living in Madrid. I love travelling, watersports (windsurf, surf, swimming, etc.), mountainbiking, tech, yoga and a long etcetera. I take attention to details and like clean, comfortable and functional places.
Marco purchased this apartment in 2010
Why Marco chose Tarifa
I’ve been windsurfing since I was 9 and although I lived in Madrid I’ve been travelling to Tarifa yearly since 1987. Years ago I started looking for an apartment. It was not easy as I wanted it to be conveniently close to the town and to the beach, have a reasonable size and quality together with a garage for my car and an equipment warehouse to keep all my gear. Ideally with pool and garden for those days when you prefer not going to the beach. Finally, I chose this apartment that was on construction and that was finished by the summer of 2010 and that I enjoy making constant improvements to make it nice and comfortable to spend some holidays.
What makes this apartment unique
Its location, size, it's fantastic pool (in summer) and having plenty of room to safely park the car in any season, it's warehouse to leave your gear, and its modern and complete equipment. It has everything you could need in a house, and more! :-)
