Spacious, Great Location, Superb Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week at the end of September. We were so very pleasantly surprised when Esmeralda opened the door to the apartment as it has been refurbished since the photos on the listing were taken. The colours and furnishings are gorgeous. The apartment is very well equipped, very comfortable and really spacious. The terrace is amazing with fabulous views and both sunny and shady areas to enjoy. It took only 5 or so mins to walk down to the beach and old town. There's also a safe and washing machine that aren't mentioned in the listing. We can definitely recommend this apartment and I hope that we can visit again. Thank-you Esmeralda and Maria

This apartment, located high above the old town was ideal as a holiday let with magical ocean and old town views. It is extremely large and has everything needed for a self catering holiday. There are local and international supermarkets within walking distance. The owners could not do more to make you welcome. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

a lovely apartment and well recommended

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Maria who was very helpful and told us about the property and area. The apartment was amazing and newly refurbished the view was amazing, the pool was set up every morning with sun beds and covers and umbrellas. The whole complex was well kept and clean and I could not fault this holiday. We will without doubt be back as the whole process was seamless and perfect from the initial enquiry to end of the holiday. Thanks for looking after us and if you are thinking about staying then look no further.

Nice and big with lovely view

  • 4 of 5

The owner was nice. Lovely big apartment with a big balcony and sea view.

Just a shame that there were a couple of defective things like the patio door not locking as it was held shut with a screw that constantly fell out. It wasn't as clean as expected after reading the other reviews (food bits left in the oven and on cutlery). It could really do with a total upgrade in general but I suppose you get what you pay for.

The nearest shop and restaurants is 10 mins away but no good for people with bad legs as its down a very steep hill. The beach took around 20 mins walking slow (bad legs). The pool is down lots of steps too but it does have a hand rail.

Overall a lovely stay due to the size, big balcony and nice view.

Absolutely Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is absolutely lovely, fantastic views and immaculately clean and tidy.

all the amenities we needed and more.

beach towels were provided in the apartment along with a fully stocked kitchen which was great for us.

Maria and Esmeralda were very helpful and accommodating during booking and on arrival.

We will definitely be back in the future after 6 years of staying in the area this is a great find. :)

Million Dollar View

  • 4 of 5

My spouse and I stayed at apartment 612, Cerro Branco from February 7 to May 1. The listing description was accurate and even the pictures can't fully capture the spectacular view. The apartment was clean and had all that was required for a short or long stay. Esmeralda was always helpful and very pleasant to deal with. She dealt effectively and promptly with any requests and gave helpful suggestions regarding sightseeing. It always helps when there is someone who tries to ensure that your stay is pleasant, and Esmeralda did this.

The apartment is bright and comfortable. Some of the living room furniture could use a "facelift". The kitchen and bathroom have been recently refurbished. It was a beautiful apartment to begin the day in and to come home to in the evening with the added bonus of the magnificent view. The apartment is close to supermarkets (10 minutes walk), to banks and to many restaurants. A few minutes and you are down to the beach. Having said that there are approximately 50 steps down from the street to the apartment and an uphill walk from the beach area to the apartment, so it would not be convenient for a person with mobility issues. If you don't mind steps and a short uphill walk, we have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone.
