We had a very enjoyable four night stay in Colin and Judith's fantastic apartment, and a great experience throughout our booking/arrival. All necessary information about arriving and collecting the keys was sent to us in good time, and Judith was kind enough to facilitate an earlier check-in time after cleaning (despite the fact she'd just gone all the way home, to come all the way back again!) Having just got off a plane after an early morning flight, I was incredibly grateful for this!
First impressions of the apartment were exceedingly good - it is true to the photos on TA. Very clean and furnished to a high quality. Fitted with all the appliances and mod-cons that you could possibly want for a short or longer stay (coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer). Effective air cooling system in place and also great Dyson fan provided in the bedroom. The thoughtful little 'extras' really made it as well - including the provision of shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, pods for the coffee machine and additional beach/pool towels. Large walk-in shower, with no issues with water pressure or temperature during our stay. Bed was very comfy - a good sized double with firm mattress and soft fresh linen.
The apartment benefits from sliding doors that open out to a little ledge balcony (there are true balconies off the communal corridors) and a great view of harbour. Shame about the new development going up next door, somewhat spoiling the view of the Rock. We also enjoyed the access to the residents' swimming pool atop of one of the neighbouring blocks (access through the buildings, so you don't need to go down to street level). Now the pool side certainly does have an exceptional view of the Rock!
The central location of the apartment is great - we walked it to and from the airport in less than 30 minutes and it's just 10 minutes' walk into the hub of town centre and all the restaurants, shops and bars found there. Large Morrisons Superstore (and a McDonalds, if you are that way inclined) are just across the street, so you can stock up on provisions for your stay. If you miss your home comforts, the Morrisons stocks most everything you would find in a UK store - we were particularly impressed with the huge range of real ales and ciders. Ocean Village also just around the corner, with more bars and restaurants.
We were hugely impressed by the apartment - definitely deserves the title of luxury - and will most definitely be looking to book again for our next return to the Rock. Would highly recommend it to others - we only stayed a few nights, but it certainly would comfortably accommodate you for a longer stay. Cannot thank Colin and Judith enough for letting us use it - we'll be back! :)
Great location, nothing was too far away.
Flat was very clean, good size for a 1-bedroom and came supplied with coffee pods, washing detergent, shower & shampoo gels, big TV (w HDMI input to connect up a laptop), very good internet connection. Well kitted out kitchen, big fridge freezer.
The rooftop pool which was pleasantly cool in the September heat.
Thanks for the relaxing week.
This apartment has everything needed for a short or long stay. Colin and Judith were very helpful providing everything we could wish for. Highly recommended
Apartment exactly as described. Comfortable, everything you'd need to enjoy your stay. Conveniently situated, happy to book again.
My partner and I stayed in this apartment last February and thoroughly enjoyed our stay; it's very well equipped and has nice touches like coffee pods for your use as well as bits and pieces like tin foil, salt, sauces etc - great for cooking in the apartment. The location is great with a supermarket just a couple of minutes walk away and the main shopping/bar/restaurant area again just a short distance away. We enjoyed our time in Gibraltar and would certainly consider renting this apartment again if we return.
