We have rented this same apartment for the last 4 years from the owners and it really is home from home. The apartment is kept to a very high standard.
We are a family of four with two 40 something adults and now two aging teenagers who have spent 4 weeks of their summers each year of the last 7 growing up at the Garden of Eden. When on holiday in my younger years I was always wondered why people keep going back to the same holiday destination.........until we found the Garden of Eden. When the children were young, safety was of the utmost importance....This complex and the area of St Vlas put us as parents totally at ease.
It comfortably sleeps a family of four with a double en-suite room for the parents and a twin room for the kids. The 2nd bathroom means the kids have their own bathroom which can be essential with two teenage daughters! Everything you need in this apartment is there from an iron to a hair dryer. There is a pull out sofa in the main living area which means you can accomadate up to 6 people in total.
The Nevena building has no lift so would not be suitable for disabled access. The apartment is on the 3rd floor.
This apartment is ideally located on the complex approx. half way down the site - 2 min walk to main hotel complex and 2 min walk down to the beach. There are numerous outdoor pools, one indoor pool and the beach. With three onsite restaurants (Main hotel, Italian Restaurant (includes Pizza takeaway) and fish restaurant overlooking the sea it caters for all your needs. There are a number of outside pool bars and a main bar in the complex.
The Garden of Eden Complex run their own taxi service which can collect you from the airport or just drop you 5 mins down the road - This is very competitively priced and again gives you piece of mind. Thy do a return service, so if you've gone out for the night, you ring the desk and they send your taxi back to pick you up.
St Vlas - The village of St Vlas is a 2 min taxi ride or a 15 min casual walk from the complex along one road. It has numerous shops, cafes and restaurants that are all reasonably priced. St Vlas is a very chilled placed.
A must visit is St Vlas Marina - You can take a taxi ride or a walk along the main road, but would recommend you go via the Garden of Eden beach - Go to the beach and just turn right and follow the path...there is a steep concrete path up a slight hill at first, but once you make that (take you 5 mins) it will be worth the climb. Walk in a straight line with the sea on your left and you will see the wonder of St Vlas Marina settled between two glorious beaches, with numerous sports cars and multi million pound yachts.
Sunny Beach - With Sunny Beach 20mins away in a taxi you have the option of upping the pace a bit. It is a very lively place after dark a very popular with the youngsters....avoid after dark if you have young children.......We have been on numerous occasions and never seen any trouble, it is just very lively to be there with young kids
