Paco was very welcoming to on arrival. He was very helpful in recommending us where to eat. He took the time to explain to us where everything was and about the public transport. I thought the apartment was spacious, clean, homely, safe and secure. It was fully air conditioned with a TV, DVD player and washing machine and only a 5 min walk to the beach. Supermarkets, bars and restaurants very near by. Without hesitation, I would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again.
Easy handover of keys. Comfortable air conditioned 2 bedroom apartment. Free parking available in surrounding neighbourhood. Walking distance to swimming beach and local supermarkets. Short walk to bus stops for easy acces to the Old Town and Aquarium. Sunny everyday! Day trip to Cuenca to see a bullfight and the hanging houses if Cuenca.
Lovely apartment, very well equipped, location excellent for beach and adequate choice of surrounding restaurants & bars. plenty very local supermarkets and market hall, great little bike hire shop round the corner for a city and promenade that is very cycle friendly.
We have spent 4 nights in the apartment and fully enjoyed our stay here. Paco the owner welcomed us very friendly and explained everything to us. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you may desire, even water and milk was prepared in the fridge. You will find brochures, books, TV and DVDs, Radio and CD, some games for rainy days ;-) some printouts were prepared with recommendations and important places in the neighborhood. A supermarket and bakery is close by and also some bars and restaurants. The wonderful beach of Malvarossa is 3 minutes walking distance away :) you will also find bus stops and metro for your excursion to Valencia Centre or the Ciutad de las Artes and Ciencias. We really enjoyed our stay and can fully recommend the apartment.
This was our first visit to Valencia and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. Very impressed with the apartment which was ideal for our family of 4 (me, husband, and 2 children), but perfectly suitable for a couple. Location-wise, It was 5 minutes walk from the beach and opposite a bus stop which took you straight into the city centre (I'd recommend Russafa and El Carmen areas for eating, drinking, walking), or, if preferred, just around the corner is the tram stop which is a little quicker. If you're looking for 'authenticity' then La Cabanal is for you, with its streets lined with fisherman's houses with their idiosyncratic architecture and mosaic designs, and the people were friendly. See them before the developers move in! There are also plenty of excellent tapas bars, restaurants, and bars within walking distance, although we tended to avoid the the touristy strip on the seafront. We only met him once, but the owner Paco was very friendly and helpful. In short - highly recommended.
We booked this apartment for 6 days, traveling with our 2,5 year old son. I asked if there was a baby bed available: Owner arranged a babybed and a lot of toys for him to play with!!!
So sweet of him. He welcomed us with a cake and there was fresh milk and water for us in the fridge.
Completely equipped apartment with microwave, oven, toaster, waterboiler etc, even tea, coffee and the necessary products for cooking such as salt pepper sugar herbs olive oil were there.
And because there were now renters after us we were allowed to stay in the appartment till we had to go to the airport!!

Stayed a week with my wife, 20 yr old daughter and friend. Apartment is on 6th floor (lift in building) and very well appointed with two bedrooms, air-con (plus overhead fan in master bedroom), fully fitted kitchen including full sized oven & hob, fridge, freezer, washer/ dryer, dish washer, microwave, toaster, plenty of pans, glasses, crockery and coffee machine! The only minor disappointment was the relatively low water pressure for the shower - run another tap or flush the loo and it reduced to a trickle. The apartment is very well located for the metro (Dr Lluch stop a couple of minutes walk away), supermarket (5 minutes walk) and beach only 5 minutes away. Although it's a town beach it's huge and clean, with showers plus toilets and places to hire loungers. In our week we were able to visit the beach every day and still saw all the main sites including the Cathedral, City of Arts & Sciences (spectacular architecture), Turia Park, Ceramics Museum, Central Market, La Lonja & Institute of Modern Art using the metro and walking from the apartment. On the last night we had wonderful tapas at Casa Montana (currently #37 out of over 2,000 Valencia restaurants on Tripadvisor and deservedly so - book well ahead for a table) that was only a five minute walk away. Highly recommend Valencia as a city break combining culture, sun, the beach and this apartment!
