Modern clean apartment in unbeatable location

5 of 5
We have just returned home after a 13 night stay here. Andrzej (owner) met us there and even allowed us in earlier and booked our taxi to airport for us, very helpful. The apartment is very comfortable with stunning views of sea. The new air con/heating system has just been installed and worked really well heating the apartment up very nicely on some chilly evenings. Location was ideal as we walked everywhere as didn't hire car. Restaurants and shops are all within walking distance so ideal. Very quiet this time of year, which was great for us. Would thoroughly recommend to family and friends and hope to return ourselves one day to this first class apartment.

Stunning apartment.

5 of 5
Just back from a weeks break at this first class apartment. Absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean, very comfortable with all the facilities you'll need and more. Have visited this area for over 15yrs and without any doubt this apartment would take some beating. Close to all amenities bars, restaurants, supermarkets one being just across the road. Local beaches just a stroll away. Communication with Mike the owner and the key holder Paul was first class, hassle free as Paul there waiting on our arrival. Felt very safe within the gated complex. Thank you for a wonderful stay and would definitely book again 100%.
