Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Gibraltar

1 double bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

THIS APARTMENT IS RECOMMENDED BY THE GIBRALTAR TOURIST BOARD. Another Jackie Hobbs quality apartment. A modern well-equipped and recently refurbished apartment in Eurotowers owned by Jackie. A swimming pool on the top floor and squash courts on the ground. The apartment has air conditioning and under floor heating in the bathroom. Spectacular views from the floor to ceiling double windows over the town towards the Rock. It can sleep four with two in the bedroom and two in the kingsize sofa bed in the sitting room. The kitchen comprises hob/oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, washer/dryer and has crockery, glassware and cutlery for six. There is a security door-entry intercom system. There is satellite television, a DVD player, FREE BROADBAND/WIRELESS and i-pod docking station. The apartment is well situated between two marinas with their bars and restaurants and a short five minute walk to Main Street - selling duty free goods.

Gibraltar combines the best of both worlds - by car within 40 minutes of Puerto Banus and Marbella going up one side of the Spanish coast and 40 minutes to Tarifa - the windsurfing capital of the world - up the other coast.

There are several golf courses within a short distance. San Roque, Sotogrande, Estepona and Marbella are among the most popular.

Three hours away door to door from Gibraltar is Sierra Nevada for wonderful ski-ing. You can ski in the morning and be on the beach in Marbella for the afternoon. Or visit Granada and the Alhambra Palace.

About Jackie Hobbs

I retired as an administrator 10 years ago. I am originally from Carlisle but have lived most of my life in the south of England, although when first married we lived on a boat in Gibraltar, chartering out of Mallorca in the summer months but spending our winter months in Gib. We returned to the UK when our daughter Shelley was 6 and have lived in Brixham, Devon for the last 31 years. We now have a much smaller boat which we use at every available opportunity - when it is sunny!

Jackie Hobbs purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Jackie Hobbs chose Gibraltar

I fell in love with this apartment the moment I walked in - I just knew it was for me and that was even before I turned around and saw the dining area. It has of course been completely refurbished to my taste since that initial viewing. I stay frequently even on my own and feel so totally safe there.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefits of this apartment are that you are pretty central for most things. The hospital and Morrisons around the corner, a 5 - 10 minute walk into Main Street depending on how fast you are. An easy walk to either Ocean Village or Queensway Quay for restaurants, though now behind the Market there are some excellent restaurants and bars just starting up - and of course duty-free - I always buy make-up and perfume in Gib it is so much cheaper than either the UK or at any airport.

We haven't written a review in the past because we wanted to keep this lovely and brilliantly located apartment a SECRET.

We will miss this apartment as it has been like home-from-home for approx 2.1/2 weeks over the past five years. Exceptionally clean, everything you need, modern, convenient location and relaxing. Roof swimming pool in adjacent building (through linking corridors) has a brilliant view, all around. There is a small covered balcony which benefits from the morning sun.

Upon arrival/departure we used the bus as there is no real need for a taxi, stops near to the apartment. Morrison's supermarket is also nearby and there is a pull-along trolley in the apartment to assist with carrying shopping back from the supermarket.

The apartment has twin beds in the main bedroom and a pull-out sofabed in the lounge. The only reason we did not make a 2011 booking was because our teenage children decided, for one last holiday, they be spoilt and wanted their own individual bedrooms. Soon they will not want to come on holiday with mum and dad, so we will definitely be back and hopefully more often!

Gib itself has a lot to offer, just put your walking shoes on and explore, visit the beaches, shops/restaurants, bus service is regular. There is a lower cave tour too (wear old clothes) - just ask at Tourist Information. Further afield one can walk to La Linea to the market (Wed/Sat); take the bus or boat to Algercias (cheaper on Sat but shops close for lunch), day trip to Morrocco or bus/train to Rhonda - all nice days out.

The owner, Jackie, is brilliant; excellent communicator and is very flexible, accommodating and helpful. Definitely recommend to friend/relative (but we wanted to keep it a SECRET!)

Thank you Jackie for giving us the opportunity to create some lovely memories. GibFlower x

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely, very comfortable, fully equipped and has great views. A 10 minute walk to the town centre and Morrisons across the road meant it was perfect for our needs. We didn't use the swimming pool but it was a very good area with brilliant views. All the ladies we dealt with, Jackie, Kristina and Maureen, were kind, helpful and friendly. Now I have to work out when we can go back!

Excellent apartment and the best value at Gib

  • 5 of 5

4 guys (aged 20+-)

We were visiting Gibraltar for two weeks for the great chess festival of Gibraltar, and the apartment was very comfortable and affordable accomodation.

The location is excellent, with Morrison's supermarket and bus station just next to the building, and 5 minutes walk from the Main Street. The kitchen is well equipped and so is the bathroom, with bedding and towels provided. The apartment is very clean and makes good feeling.

Initially, we had a slight concern about how comfortable is the sofa bed - but it appeared to be large enough for 2 people, so no complaints. The view from the 7th floor is just amazing. The Wi-Fi connection was good.

Last but not least: the owner, Jackie, was brilliant. Excellent communication, very helpful, made this visit so easy for us. We are very thankful for this experience and certainly recommend everyone who visit Gibraltar to try this apartment.

Absolutely wonderful apartment, couldn´t fault anything. Very clean and extremely comfortable accommodation. The owner Jackie has provided everything to enable her guests to have a relaxing stay. We probably won´t return to Gibraltar for a few years but would love to once again stay in this beautiful apartment. It was such a pleasure liaising with Jackie both up to and during our stay in her apartment, and the lovely touch of sending us the bottle of bubbly to celebrate our Wedding Day, was much appreciated !

Thank you

A March week in Gibraltar

  • 4 of 5

We liked:

the clean and well maintained apartment with excellent views of both the Rock and the Waterfront;

that It is centrally located with easy access to all central Gibraltar Bars, Restaurants and Shops where prices, quality and standards were good. Roys Fish & Chips Restaurant in Casement Square was excellent and nearby Gaucho's (mainly meat) served us the best Fillet Steak we have eaten in a long time, so good in fact we did not even mind the cost.

We were disappointed:

that the 7th Floor Terrace was not available, as we had no where to sit and enjoy the splendid weather. We were aware the swimming pool was not open (until June according to a notice displayed) but the terrace being closed was a big disappointment;

that we were unable to book the advertised excursion we wanted to Jerez as all the tour operators said they needed at least 10 to make the trip worthwhile and although we applied as soon as we arrived, 8 other like minded holiday makers were not forthcoming during our weeks stay. A risk I guess when travelling outside the main season.

that there was major pipe laying works being carried out, right outside the apartment 24 hours a day throughout our stay, which necessitated the use of heavy hydraulic drills and digging equipment. This was, we believe, to supply services to the Apartments being built nearby. But the apartment owners could not have known this would happen;

Would we go back to Gibraltar? Yes

Would we stay in the same apartment? Yes

Did we have a good vacation? Yes

Would we recommend the apartment to friends? Yes

Would we recommend Gibraltar to friends? Yes

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments not all unfortunately were correct as I have written to you separately explaining. The management company has not, as yet this year, sent out a letter giving the pool opening date. In fact retiling has been carried out during the last week but they are hopeful that it will be open by the end of this week. The road outside Eurotowers is being extended so that we will be connected to Queensway Marina but the 24 hour water pipe work was due to a major fault which AquaGib had to correct and was finished by the time I had read your review. I agree with you about the terrace - the management company are trying to find a way of stopping rainwater from seeping into the apartments below and therefore will not give any date for re-opening however there is a balcony directly outside our apartment where you can sit out if you wish. I am pleased you said you will come back again and I look forward to dealing with you again. kind regards, Jackie

Lovely modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything that it said on the advert.

Everything was provided and we did not find that we needed anything. Even the 'very important' corkscrew was in the drawer. :-) I loved having the internet. It was very clean, the beds were comfy and everything worked. I liked the long mirror in the bathroom which helps you to check yourself out before sightseeing. It was a short walk to most places. The new hospital and Morrisons were around the corner.

The main street has a BHS. M&S Mothercare and a host of other UK shops, We had hired a car and we did not need it whilst in Gibraltar because we walked everywhere . We used the car to sight see in Spain. Parking was a bit difficult. Binoculars were provided for ship spotters. Google the name into the internet and the marina site gives you all the info and a map of the bay all the boats with names etc. We had a lovely time and were very comfortable in the flat.

I am sure we will use this flat again.

Thank you Jackie for providing a lovely place for our holiday.

Gibraltar is a British Colony attached to the foot of Spain within easy reach of Africa by ferry (one hour). The currency is Sterling, the language is both English and Spanish with Gibraltarian a quaint mix between the two. The border between Gibraltar and Spain is open 24 hours per day travelling through on foot and by car. Gibraltar is a mile wide and three miles long famous for the rock apes, seige tunnels and duty-free shopping.

There is plenty of night-life consisting of a casino and funky nightclubs.
