We visited for a week go home tomorrow 10/07/18. Great location 15 mins from Bullring/Centre, bakery across road and supermarket 10 mins away.
The terrace of the balcony is very spacious (see pics), and gets sun from sunrise to sunset is a real sun trap. Is adequately equipped table/chairs and sun loungers .
Very private only saw the occupant from neighbouring apartment once.
Wi-fi super fast and did not drop out once!
Shower lovely and powerful. Apartment is well stocked with fridge/freezer, hob portable grill we did all our cooking on this so impressed going to buy one to replace out BBQ!! Plenty of cups/glasses/plates etc.
Upon our arrival Mercedes rang me ‘as promised’ talked me through a very easy key safe to gain entry. She said any issues to ring but we had no problems whatsoever.
Once inside flat had been prepped and cleaned with fresh linen towels etc.
My wife and I loved our trip here far more enjoyable than precious hotel visits and spent some quality time together. We decided to eat at apartment most evenings and sat outside .
Already planning next years visit we were very respectful of noise and always ensured communal door was closed.
Location great very near to railway station, We love walking and found you could walk to lots of interesting places .Beach is quite away but there are buses nearby to take you or 9 euros in a cab. Apartment is very comfortable especially the bed also there is a very large outside space .
We spent a week in the arpatment at the end of March 2018.
The apartment is in a great location, exactly as described by the owner. We appreciated being ain a quiet location that was just 10 mins walk to the city centre. There was a large supermarket around the croner and plenty of restauarants nearby.
The apartment is really well designed, also as described by the owner, and was indeed very clean.
Not everything was as we hoped, however.
First, we expected to find two bikes in the apartment. Instead you are provided with two cards that give you access to the city bike club.
Second, some of the furnishings and facilities are very tired and in need of replacement. The crockery was particularly poor: we had access only to a limited selection of old, miscelleaneous, cups, plates and glasses, much of which was chipped; there was only a single breakfast bowl, which meant we had to take turns to have our morning cereal; and there was no two matching wine glasses. The grouting on the shower, although clean, looks really grubby and unappealling and is badly in need of replacement. One of the bathroom towels — although clean — was badly stained by bleached. The terrace is also not quite the glistening-white haven depicted on Tripdvisor: it too is in need of a lick of paint. We have our own photos of all of these things if you wish to judge for yourself.
Third, the next door neighbour had their TV on every evening until 11pm or so at an intrusively high volume.
Lastly, the communication from Mercedes was very disappointing. I emailed on several occasions in the week leading up to our arrival to ask about admission arrangements but she did not reply until about 24 hours before our flight. This left us really anxious for a few days. Mercedes also did not meet us in person as she was busy with her daughter so we had to admit ourselves. She promised to get in touch with us within a couple of days to check everything was ok but we didn’t hear from her until the second half of the week and only then because she wanted to retrieve something from the apartment.
Those disappointments aside, I would still recommend this apartment to a friend albeit with those caveats.
Good location, nice place to stay and close to the center, We loved the use of the bikes.The terrace is great. We had a good time in this apt.
This is a beautifully renovated, spacious apartment in a fabulous location. The owner was very friendly and helpful and had thought of everything you might need, such as a coffee machine, towels, hair dryer, extra blankets and chilled bottle of water in the fridge on arrival.
There are bus stops to get to the beach within a few minutes walk, the city centre is 10 minutes walk away and we go a taxi from the airport which only costs 15 Euro.
The terrace doesn't have the best view, but it does get the sun nearly all day and despite being so close to roads and the train station, the whole apartment is very quiet.
I loved this place!
Really enjoyed our stay at this Valencia penthouse. Lovely terrace, very private. Property had everything we needed for our stay. Clean, private and safe. Air Conditioning works a dream!
Owner was very helpful before arrival with advice and directions. Late access to the apartment went without a hitch. Thanks Mercedes!
Railway station is 5 minute walk and is a good starting place for taxis etc. Taxi to center of town is about €4. It's a good place to start a visit because there is a tourist office for advice and the Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour Bus passes here.
Lovely little bakery at the corner of the street - one minute's walk. Bread is beaufitul. Look out for the cakes!! ;-) Nearest supermarket - CONSUM - is 6 minutes walk.
