Couple from Carmarthen, United Kingdom Feb 2017

A lovely apartment in a great location with easy walk along beach to old town . Spacious bedroom and terrace . It would have been very comfortable but where was the mat/rug on the living room floor shown in the pictures of the apartment ? Really not good enough to have just bare tiles for a February let ! The other let-down was that we specifically asked , before booking , if there was heating and were told the AC units were also heat units . We were rather dismayed to be told on arrival that the units were not working ! In fact the visitors' book showed the AC was playing up in the summer and there was what seemed a portable air cooler and unsightly attachments still left in the living room . We had been left a radiator/type electric heater and needed this for the early mornings and the evenings - we did ask for a second heater but it never materialised .


From Darwen

Had a fantastic 2 weeks in this lovely apartment. Very clean and comfortable. All mod cons throughout the apartment. i cannot fault it in any way and would definately consider going back.
Booking was easy and the transfer was brilliant. Everyone i spoke to was so friendly. the most stress free holiday ive ever had. good location close to the beach and the strip, a little further from the old town but not far. to anyone reading this review book now!! You really wont be diappointed

Reply from Maeve

Thank you so much for your kind review, this is our holiday home so we wanted to make it comfortable the only down side is we do not get to spend enough time there. I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to hearing from you again. Maeve


From Derry

Stunning apartment in a fantastic location within easy reach to everything. The beach is a 5 min stroll down the hill, there are plently of bars and nightlife a 10 min walk away and the beautiful old town can be accessed walking along the beach or a short taxi ride.
The apartment was very clean and modern with plently of room for 4, just beside the pool. Had a fantastic stay and would recommend!

Private Owner From Carraroe, Ireland Member since Oct 2010

We purchased this property because it is absolutely beautiful. It is our little piece of Paradise. Just a few hours 'Door to Door' and no need for a car when we get there. Walking distance to everything. Near all the hustle & bustle of Shops, Entertainment, Restaurants, etc. Yet when sitting on the balcony enjoying yet another stunning golden sunset the silence is only broken by the sound of the ocean lapping/crashing onto the beach.
