"Affordable, situated very near cost and within 15 minutes of Varna"
The penthouse was tastefully furnished with air-conditioning (very necessary in the summer) and a balcony with a good view of the surrounding area. The one problem we had with the flat is that it wasn't quite as described (had only 2 bathrooms, as one was an ensuite we shared one between 4 people) and it was on the top floor with no lift or escalators, just stairs. Apart from that the property was lovely with a sauna, jacuzzi and pool downstairs.
The penthouse is perfect for a holiday with friends or a family, though there is a balcony so it may not be quite suitable for children. The stairs make it unsuitable for any mobility-impaired visitors.
It was wonderfully situated very close to the coast, within a very easy walk. The beach is beautiful and there was an amazing seafood restaurant that we went to often. There is plenty of cafes and restaurants within an easy walk. On our very first night (we arrived at approx 1am) a couple of us spent most of the morning until 7am drinking at a 24/7 bar that was 5 minutes down the road.
It is also within a short taxi ride to Varna, the nearest city. There is a sightseeing bus that goes round several tourist areas - we visited several places like a huge shopping centre in Varna and a water park.
Prices are very reasonable in Bulgaria, and much cheaper than Sofia. For younger parties - alcohol is easy to get hold of and we almost never got ID'd. However, we were warned to be extremely careful with our passports, money and belongings.
The owner was able to arrange for us to be transferred by taxi to and from the airport, and also able to recommend other taxi drivers for us to use.
All in all we were quite happy with the holiday.

Apartment was every bit as good as the advert, had every thing you needed, location for us was perfect, situated away from Golden sands ( which was perfect for us as we found Golden sands to be too busy .) The local people could't do enough for us, they were wonderful.Very safe accommodation with security 24 hours.No complaints, would like to stay here again.

"Not a bad place but not worth your hard earned vacation"
First the Pros:
* the owner was pretty flexible with payment (we used Paypal to pay from the States)
* the place is clean and well maintained
* the kitchen included pots and pans enough to allow us to cook, eat meals, etc.
* the maintenance staff allowed us to park inside the property (although, only because I speak Bulgarian, I think)
* the security staff was friendly and helpful
* the place has AC that cools the place really fast
* cute balcony for having drinks / coffee
Now the Cons:
* not at all in an area I would call tourist
* no elevator/lift and the place is 8 flights of stairs
* did not provide anough linens, etc.
* once paid, the owners could bother to respond back to emails etc. and left us to deal with their Bulgarian maintenance guys
* the description does not mention that one of the rooms is a bunk bed, which may work well for kids but not for adults.
