Great place with all facilities etc. Good position on ground floor with small front garden that catches the sun from midday until dusk. Weather was good for Feb/Mar and could get quite hot in the garden in the afternoon. There is a Mercadona supermarket a couple of minutes walk away and car parking right outside the apartment. Car is essential to see the area although there is a bus stop not far. Property clean on arrival, but after that we looked after ourselves, although you can book cleaning etc at extra cost with Gerd who looks after the apartment for Simon. Gerd also very helpful and lives nearby if there any problems. This a residential site with pool, not a resort, which suited us. Would go back. We had a good time.

We just had to open the gate and step onto the soft sand of the beach. We had our 2 dogs with us and everything was perfect for them with a secure garden where they could watch people and dogs walking past. There was so much in the house; cinema, table tennis, pool table, a lovely big wide screen TV in the sitting room and of course the bar in the garden where Eddie put in a cask of beer for us. The garden had plenty of seating and we had some nice sunny days in February where we could sit out. There was always a spot in the garden were we could sit in the sun. We could have used the BBQ or pizza oven in the garden but being February we cooked indoors so can't comment on these but they looked impressive. Lots of wardrobe space, a comfy bed in the master suite and the house was nice and clean. We even had a bag of oranges left one day and another day a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice. Nearby Villaricos had plenty of eating and drinking places, and a beach bar within 10 minutes walking distance had good beer and a decent menu. Thank you to Eddie and Ray.
