This large air-conditioned ground floor apartment is situated right on one of Sitges' best beaches, near the Aiguadolç Marina. It consists of 4 double bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, one with jacuzzi, fully equipped kitchen, vast living-room and a lovely terrace garden with a view to the beach. The building complex offers a vast communal garden area with a huge swimming pool, paddling pool and 2 tennis courts. 2 indoors private parking spaces are available to the guests as well. You can step off the terrace and onto the beach in about 20 seconds. The beach has a very pleasant 'chilinguito' (snack bar/restaurant). Great atmosphere, relaxing music! You can hire sun beds and parasols for the day, or play beach volley ball. Great snorkelling and the rocky end. Bring your masks and fins! Your holiday here can be as active or relaxing as you wish.
10m from beach but directly behind is high speed train line! Booked a week here starting 29th Aug 2016 for a family of 7 adults, 1 child and 1 infant as the property is described as having 4 double bedrooms. WRONG! There were 2 double bedrooms, one bedroom with double bunkbeds and the last room had a single bed in so daughter ended up sleeping in the single bed with her child for the whole week. Property was advertised as having air conditioning. WRONG! The owner's representative (Dirk - a lovely man) told me the air conditioning was only in the master bedroom, the air conditioning downstairs didn't work, had never worked and couldn't be fixed but fans were provided - not the same as air conditioning as the fans just circulated hot air! Property listing showed a picture of a lovely modern kitchen which was described as fully equipped. WRONG! The photograph on the property listing isn't the kitchen in the property! The kitchen was old, tired and tiny - you could reach the fridge, cooker and sink by standing in the same spot. "Fully equipped" included odd glasses, chipped mugs and bowls, mis-matched plates. On arrival we were given two front door keys - next to the front door there is double patio doors however no key was provided so we couldn't open them. There is another door in the master bedroom that leads to the stairway besides the duplex but no key was provided to that door either. We felt a bit uneasy for the whole week as, for fire safety reasons, there was only one unlockable exit/entrance and no smoke alarms. There is a laundry room situated just off the kitchen area which is situated on the ground floor of the duplex. The laundry room is basically the void in the centre of the duplex with a plastic roof on to protect the laundry room from anything that falls into the void - if you stay here I'd advise to keep the laundry room door shut as this is where the cockroaches get in! If travelling with children, you may want to bring some DVDs as the only TV channels you can get are in Spanish. We paid a refundable cash deposit (any breakages) on arrival and were told it would be returned when we left. Having arranged with Dirk to exchange keys/refund at 17.30 (half an hour before we were getting picked up) I got an email from owner at 17.18 to say leave the keys in the door and he'd transfer my money the next day! No way! Afterfrantic phone calls we met up however it was a very stressful end of what was meant to be a relaxing holiday!
