Our host, Davide, was kind enough to meet us at the airport, drive us to the pproperty and show us around the apartment and the apartment complex (pool, reception etc).
Lovely, friendly guy.
Just as you see in the photos, clean, spacious and perfect for a couple.
Good sized living room/diner with all kitchen ameneities and utensils, table chairs, sofa, coffee table, TV.
Clean bathroom with shower (not bath).
Washing machine (although it does not seem to spin the clothes very dry... maybe we did not set it correctly though).
Good size bedroom with big double/king bed and a cot.
Small outside terrace area with table, chairs, parasol, small outdoor sofa and 2 sunbeds.
The apartment complex:
Well kept and mostly quiet. When we were there it seemed to be mostly Brits in their 50s.
There is a bar on site (although we did not go in it) and a reception area which has helpful staff.
The apartment is locked/gate, so is quite safe.
Location: a bit outside the main harbour area of Puerto Del Carmen (but well within walking distance to the main/big beach). this is a good thing, as it is slightly quieter than the main area. It is also just 2 minutes from a smaller beach (which was still quiet enough and big enough for us). Lots of restaurants and cocktail bars withing easy reach.
Use the Spar supermarket, rather than the nearby Unidade one (which is quite expensive)... the reception staff can point you in direction of the Spar.
The bedroom window is close to an extrenal metal gate, that less considrate resident let slam shut, rather than closing gently... might need some earplugs. Most people are careful and considerate though.
No Wifi in the apartment..... However, there is free Wifi in the complex reception area and in all the local bars/restaurants. To be fair, Davide did provide a 3G mobile hotspot, but we had problems connecting and could not use.
These are very minor negatives and overall we had a great time - we would highly recommend.
