The Eastern Beach region
The Rock of Gibraltar is world famous for the apes (Macaques) and you can meet them by tour company, taxi, cable car or walking. Other attractions are St Michael's Cave, The WW2 Tunnels, The Great Siege Tunnels, Trafalgar Cemetery, 100 Ton Gun and The Moorish Castle. Don't miss the fantastic Dolphin Trips to enjoy. Why not get on an inexpensive local bus and go to Europa Point and see The Mosque, with great views of North Africa just 14 miles away. Gibraltar offers excellent walking holidays, with the superb Nature Reserve on The Rock which has so many interesting walkways, with wonderful bird watching and truly stunning views. Gibraltar is a popular wedding destination, where you can follow in the footsteps of John Lennon & Yoko Ono, who married here in 1969 and Sean Connery twice, in 1962 and 1975.
Go Duty-Free shopping in Main Street, or have an Al-Fresco meal in Casemates Square or in Ocean Village. For kids, there is Burger King and Pizza Hut in Casemates and McDonalds close to Morrisons supermarket a 10 minute walk away. Explore the Catholic and Anglican Cathedrals and The Garrison Library. Visit the beautiful Alameda Botanical Gardens.There are trips to Morocco available at any of the local travel agents. Gibraltar has many sandy beaches and the summer weather is usually great. Kings Bastion Leisure Centre, in Line Wall Road near Main Street, offers 2 Cinema's with 4 of the latest films daily, an inexpensive Ice Rink with skate hire, a 14 lane Bowling Alley, Fitness Gym, Amusements and Entertainment, as well as good food, well worth a visit, especially if you have children. It is open every day from 9am to midnight.
(GBP) UK Pounds Sterling notes and coins are accepted everywhere and are par with Gibraltar Pounds (GIP). Don't be surprised if you get a mix of both currencies in your change. You don't need Euros in Gibraltar in fact you are charged extra for the conversion to Pounds! You will need Euros if you go to Spain of course and there are plenty of Currency Exchange shops in Main Street with no commission charges and the rates are good. Currently there are possible long delays at the Gibraltar Spanish border, but still worth the wait, as the fabulous Costa Del Sol is just up the coast. Gibraltar time is always 1 hour ahead of UK time.
Eastern Beach is just 5 minutes walk from the apartment, with the largest sandy beach in Gibraltar and popular with the friendly local people, especially after 3pm in 'summer hours' early closing! There are competent lifeguards and first aid attendants on duty, with excellent changing and shower facilities in the summer months.
The restaurant: 'Latino's on the Beach' has Tapas, Specials Board and an A La Carte menu. You can hire inexpensive sunbeds under rafia umbrellas with tables on the beach there and they have a children's playground. Latino's do great beach parties and barbeques, well into the barmy summer nights.
Ice cream and cold drinks are available elsewhere along this sandy and well kept beach, ideal for sunseekers The Mediterranean Sea is clean and warm, perfect and safe for swimming.

"Absolutely perfect in every way!"
In a residential block, so quiet at night. Everything was full-size (not like some holiday lets!) Comfortable beds and large wardrobes. Apartment was very nicely furnished throughout. Two toilets (welcomed bonus) Very clean and well-maintained. Light and airy and not overlooked. bus stops outside that take you to town. We bought one-day travel tickets for £2.25 each and used the air conditioned buses to take us all round to visit the sights. Supermarket opposite the apartment stayed open till 10.00 pm which was useful. Kevin, the agent, was very friendly and could not have been more helpful. Can't wait to come back and stay again.
Thank you for your Review comments which are very much appreciated

"Beautiful apartment, great location, perfect for young family"
We had great communication with Kevin who met us the other side of the runway and kindly walked us to the apartment (about 5 mins). The apartment was very well decorated with everything that you need to make it feel home from home. Two very large double bedrooms and would easily accomodate 4 adults. Our 2 year old son loved having space to run around and play and overlooking runway he thought was great. Within the apartment you could not hear the aircraft at all - not that there are that many anyway. Amazing view of the Rock. Location was great a short walk to Casemates Square and only a 10 minute walk to the Beach where we spent most of our days. With a toddler it was great to have a washing machine which was very easy to use. The bus routes are excellent with a stop right outside the block. Local supermarket directly opposite for your shopping but Morrisons not too far to walk to if you want to keep to what you know. New Year's eve me and my husband watched the amazing firework display over the whole of Gib from the balcony with a glass of fizz. We would definately recommend this apartment for your stay in Gib.
Thank you for your kind Review. It was a pleasure to be of service to you, hoping to meet again at Filomena House and Gibraltar in the not too distant future.

"A Well presented appartment"
The flat was in a prime position for getting around as the bus stop was out side and a supermarket just across the road. Traffic noise was audible but not annoying
Thank you for your review

"Warm welcome to a spotlessly clean, well furnished home from home."
We arrived at Filomena House after a short taxi ride from Gibraltar Airport to be warmly greeted by local agent Kevin. We were impressed by the cleanliness of the whole building and more so as we entered the apartment, which is very comfortably furnished, spaciously light and airy. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen, large bathroom, toilet and another separate toilet which was useful. We made good use of the modern washing machine and clothes airer and in the supermarket across the road we were able to buy everything we needed. The bedrooms were very comfortable, good beds and spacious wardrobes, fantastic views from all windows. Filomena House is situated on the main bus route to the lovely beaches, 5 minutes away or going into town 10 minutes in the opposite direction. Brochures in the apartment show many places of interest with maps. Ocean Village is where we ate most evenings with a wide variety of restaurants. We came to Gibraltar for a family wedding which was held in a nearby hotel so we enjoyed the celebrations and sightseeing tours afterwards too. The Dolphin Trips the best ever!
Thank you for your kind review, which is very much appreciated.

Very welcoming reception. Flexibility in arrangements for arrival and departure times. The apartment is on fhe 8th floor with great views. It is spacious and well furnished. The kitchen is suitable for cooking any meal. There is an additional toilet sepaar to the main bathroom. Location is a 10 minute walk from the airport. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to Cassmate Square and the start of the main shopping street. The best point is the location and view, not really any bad points: but would say no air con (but there are fans) and no clock (which is being addressed).
Thank you for your good Review, which is very much appreciated - Brent

While taking up a sailing course in Gibraltar, I treated myself to a week in this "home away from home", being close to everything I needed - Town Centre/Main Street shopping, minutes away from Ocean Village restaurants and bars, I was a very happy visitor! Fantastic views of the great rock of Gibraltar, breathtaking. :-) Thanks for making my stay so welcoming, I will certainly book with you again, next time I need a getaway! Mia
Thank you for your welcome comments and I'm very pleased you were happy with my apartment as your base. Good luck with your nautical future, having passed the tough sailing course with flying colours!
