Maria & her husband were so helpful both prior to our stay & during. The apartment is exactly as advertised and is the perfect size. The balcony is huge with fantastic views of the sea & swimming pool. Perfect for persons of limited mobility as there is a lift to the apt floor. I will definitely be back and would recommend this apartment with 5 stars ✨

Firstly I would like to thank Niall for his prompt replies to my emails and his patience in me changing to booking from 3 people to 4 and then to 5. We were greeted at the apartment by Carmina, who spoke excellent English. She showed us round the apartment answering all our queries. She then took us to the pool which is a couple minutes walk away. The apartment is very spacious with a large dining/kitchen area. This has a sofa bed where one daughter slept all week. The main bedroom has a double bed and a balcony which you can also get to through the dining room. The second bedroom is still large and has twin beds. All rooms have airconditioning. There are two bathrooms, one has a shower and the other a bath. The kitchen has all the utensils, pots and pans you will need. It also has a large fridge/freezer, a full oven and hob, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher (it might be an idea to take some tablets if you wish to use them). The beach is 5 min walk down a bank and stairs. If you turn left at the bottom of the stairs and follow the wooden path there is another beach which is a bit quieter. If you turn right at the bottom of the stairs there is a lovely restaurant. We ate there a couple of times and the food was really nice and reasonable. Over the road from the apartment there are plenty of bars and restaurants. If you cross over the zebra crossing and follow the road round there is a supermarket. The strip is about a ten minutes walk and old town is about 30 mins. I would recommend a taxi back tho cos there is a very big hill to climb. I will be recommending this apartment to my family and friends. Thanks again Niall and Carmina.
