|Minimum Stay||3 - 4 nights|
Situated in one of Gibraltar's most prestigious locations. Located facing the marina and overlooking the lush sub-tropical gardens, six sparkling pools and seven Jacuzzis.
This modern apartment in Grand Ocean Plaza offers quality fittings and a high level of finish throughout. It boasts a luxury fitted kitchen with top of the range Fisher & Paykel appliances, designer bathrooms with under floor heating full air-conditioning, and floor to ceiling windows with sliding doors leading on to marina facing terrace with pools and marina views.
An excellent selection of Shops, world class restaurants, bars and even a casino lie, literally, on the doorstep, or take a two minute stroll to the hustle and bustle of Main Street and enjoy duty free shopping. The apartment is fully equipped, complete with bed linen & towels in addition to complimentary Wi Fi, an absolute must for uploading all those wonderful holiday snaps.
A welcome pack awaits you on arrival containing all the basics and a few extras to start you off on your holiday.
You will love the Ocean Village landscaped communal gardens, with 5 pools and 7 jacuzzi. The gardens cover 35,000 sq. ft. with lush, sub-tropical plants. The effect is to create a natural environment that flourishes all year round – giving shade in the summer and colour in the winter.
One of the pools and the jacuzzi is climatized and can be used all year round.
Ideal for holiday makers and corporate clients, also for families and couples who wants to relax in luxury settings, yet it offers plenty of tourist attractions, which are accessible by foot or short drive by taxi or bus as the bus station is a 2 minute walk away from the property.
Very nice clean property with great views over the harbour and the Spanish hills. Location was just right for us, and nearby bars and restaurant are nice too, we would stay again.
Had another great holiday in Gibraltar. First time in this apartment and really enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the air and sea traffic as well as the nightlife in Ocean Village.
The short walk to Casemates is ideal.
Will be back next year!
Flat was excellent, had everything we needed. Location was perfect and great to have access to the pools
Having never booked a holiday before through owners direct i was very pleased with the whole experience, thanks must go to Gill for her excellent communication and thanks to Suzanne who met us at Ocean Villa and showed us around the apartments.
The apartment was fantastic with three large double rooms all very clean and all with air conditioning, in the very modern Ocean Villa complex, everything was provided for and i get the feeling nothing would be too much trouble for Suzanne to make our stay comfortable.
For us though the best bit was relaxing out on the balcony with a drink looking out across the harbour ( a good view from nearly the top of the building ) and watching the air traffic coming and going on the runway.
Ocean Villa is a great place place to stay with lots of places to eat and drink, a selection of shops and other activities including the dolphin tours and scuba diving.
One bonus of staying at the apartment was access to the many pools and jacuzzis which we used every day and its worth noting that Casemates square and the bus station are just across the road less than two minutes walk.
All in all we had possibly one of the best holidays we have ever had, we were all saddened to have to leave after our ten day stay, Gibraltar really does have an amazing effect on you and we can't wait to return and when we do we will be looking to book the same apartment from Gill and Suzanne as i doubt anywhere else would do, i heartily recommend this apartment to anyone.
The apartment is in an excellent location with easy access to many restaurants in the Marina and also really close to the main shopping street and yet more restaurants. No need to hire a car if you are just staying in Gibraltar as most things are walkable and if not then the bus station is a 2 minute walk or you can call a cab.
The property offers amazing views of the marina and out to sea and benefits from a lovely balcony. The access to the extensive pool area is a real benefit, although it is a 2 minute walk from the apartment it is very private and there were plenty of sunbeds available. There appeared to be a bar in the pool area, but this was not open on our visit but there was a small convenience shop a 2 minute walk away so easy to get drinks and ice creams.
The apartment was well presented with three good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. the linen and towels were all provided and the air conditioning system was excellent and very efficient. Everything that you might need in the kitchen was provided, should you want to cook. And there were some larder items that were available to be used which was handy and a small welcome pack of essentials.
There were only two things that I would have to mention - why are there only 4 dining chairs, when the apartment clearly sleeps 6 people. The provision of a couple of stools would so easily remedy this problem. Also there is a lovely set of patio furniture on the balcony but no cushions. Without the cushions the seating is extremely uncomfortable.
Gibraltar is an amazing place to visit with so many things to do, or so little to do depending on what you want from a holiday. I would definately visit again and would consider staying at this apartment again.
My only reservation would be the lack of contact before arriving in Gibraltar. To be fair I have not used Homeaway to make a booking before but I assumed that I would get an email with joining instructions for the property. In fact I found myself phoning to establish that the property did actually exist and what to do when my party arrived. Things did work out in the end but the uncertainty right up until the last minute did spoil my anticipation of the trip.
Fantastic property located in one of the nicest developments in Gibraltar. Pool facilites well maintained and found no problems getting space as there were plenty of sunbeds. Met on arrival by Zuzanna, who couldn't have been more helpful with everything we needed.
Would recommend to anyone. Perfect service and when I return toGibraltar I will certainly be aiming to return to this property!
Gibraltar has many tourist attraction: dolphin safaris, fishing trips, cable car to the Upper Rock, nature reserve, St Michaels Cave and the historic Great Siege Tunnels.
