About Carol Wilson (Owner)
We have we always wanted to buy a property in Both Worlds as it has many fond memories for us. We lived and worked at Both World in the 1970's when it was a hotel and realised how special the place was, when the opportunity came to purchase we did not hesitate and have loved coming back to our roots.
Carol Wilson (Owner) purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Carol Wilson (Owner) chose Gibraltar
The apartment is situated on the lower level so closer to the beach. It is only one of two units with a terraced garden and private patio. It is gated so private and safe. The views over the med are spectacular with the sunrises you capture the best of the day.Both Worlds is on the quieter side of Gibraltar so this ensures a relaxing stay with the only noise being the gentle lapping of the waves and seagulls passing by.
What makes this Apartment unique
Private gated access only to guests. Not overlooked and with a fantastic panoramic view of the med. Self contained with all home comforts.

Excellent apartment & location
Great apartment. Superb location. Would definitely use again.
Great appartment in a fantastic location
Property was very clean, excellently appointed (especially the new kitchen!).
Location, Location, Location
For sea views over a lovely beach it doesn't get better than this.
The apartment was well equipped, clean and comfortable.
We were met at the airport and driven to and from the building.
Only a tiny niggle in that there was no food for the first breakfast and the nearest shop was a bus journey away.
But waking up to the sound of waves braking over a beach made up for it.
clean and tidy
meet & greet could have been better, apart from that it was fine
A real home from home: another great week.
The icing on the cake this time was the amount of dolphins we saw going past the bay. Because of the fantastic outlook you couldn't miss them.
Home from Home with added relaxation
Right from the very first contact, the communication with Carol the owner was excellent, it set the bar for the whole experience. The butterflies we had whilst waiting to hear if the booking was accepted were akin to buying a house, the joy when it's accepted is just the same, we had set our hearts on the most beautiful beachfront property in Gibraltar and we where delighted when it was confirmed.
The apartment was right on the beach, away from the road, which is not busy as its the eastern coastal road (Sandy Bay, the quieter side of the island). It had 2 unique features not found in many of the apartments at Both Worlds, one an extra gate for security and a side patio, with awning, sun and dining area and up steps to a Mediterranean garden, Inc garden shed (nice British touch and useful too).
Upon entering you go straight into the morning room/kitchen, it's not massive but it doesn't need to be, it has everything that you have at home, and more.....coffee press, corkscrew and fridge (2 of them - you'll be glad that there are 2 of them) eye level cooker, it's bijoux and it works.
The lounge with sofa bed has many cupboards with even more useful stuff in, plus a larger TV than the bedroom Inc Sky TV, DVD player & radio, again more than enough. A normal sized bathroom, not a tiny one shoehorned in as an afterthought is next, even with a bath, but use the shower as it puts the power in shower, excellent for blasting sand off yourself after a day lounging on the beach.
A well appointed bedroom, with TV and UK channels, wardrobe, bedside tables both sides with plug sockets (ideal for mobile charging), dresser with many drawers.
Outside is the best, the end of terrace terrace is brilliant, perfect for watching the boats in the bay, perfect for sunbathing (not overlooked), perfect for lighting the barbecue and watching the sun go down and the moon come up.
A bus ride into Gib main, the #4 or the #8, plus handy for the nightbus too, the #8a (it terminates at Black Strap Cove a short walk from Both Worlds). In addition to central Gib, there is also a short walk away (10-15 mins) Catalan Bay village, this has another beach, a couple of restaurants and a 4 star hotel.
There is no better holiday than one at Both Worlds, but there is no better apartment than this one at Both Worlds.
It'd a credit to Carol and you will love it, I know we did.
Both Worlds is located on the Mediterranean side of Gibraltar which means you have the sunrise to wake up to. There are four levels leading down to the beach, each level faces the sea with a variety of balconies. Nearby is Catalan Bay a small fishing village with local fish restaurants. Gibraltar is very easy to travel around and there is a good local bus service from the complex every half hour into the town market place and return. Main Street has a variety of duty free shops, restaurants, banks and a post office. There are two marinas Queensway Quay and the new Ocean Village Marina which has a lively atmosphere with a casino, several bars and restaurants. Europa Point is the most southern point in Europe and is located a short ride from Both Worlds. Gibraltar has a British Heritage which goes back hundreds of years and can be seen all over town. You can take a Rock Tour and visit the famous Barbary Apes Den, St Michael's cave and the Tunnels. For the more adventurous there are the Mediterranean steps to climb up to the top of the rock,or take a Dolphin cruise, Tangiers is only a short ferry boat sail away. The Alameda botanical gardens located near the cable car is worth a visit as the flora and fauna are both colourful and plentiful. Gibraltar has something for everyone.
