The apartment, is on the top floor, but has no stairs, is level with the pavement, looks like a detached bungalow, from the pavement, has no one attached, ether side, just below.

We have a large balcony, with BBQ, white sofas, ceramic tiles, on the balcony floor and throughout the apartment, which look like wood. The balcony is very comfortable, In 2013 we have spend over £15.000 refurbishing the apartment.

We have wall to wall sliding double glassed doors, from the lounge and main bedroom with fitted shutters, these can be closed or left open.

Weather on the whole is very good, in the summer its fairly hot but with a sea breeze and in winter the days are mostly nice, a bit like a nice summers day, you will sometimes have a rainy day in winter but usually the clouds roll back the next day and the sun comes out.

Gibraltar is steeped in history from the Neanderthal People being one of their last strong holds to Nelson some of his seaman were buried in the Trafalgar Cemetery after the Battle of Trafalgar.

St Michael s cave is a joy to walk round with its stalagmite and stalagmites, but one of the best visits I have ever had is to enjoy the opera due to its equisetic, it's just wonderful.

People say what's to do in Gibraltar believe me you could spend a month going to all the places and not see everything, you then have Spain on the doorstep.

Most people speak English although some speak Spanish as well

The Currency is the pound, so no changing of money if you are from the Uk, if you use your British cards, most British banks don't charge due to Gibraltar being a British Colony. We have many currency converters operating in Gibraltar, for other currencies

Gibraltar is like many other countries where 30 years ago, very safe, hardly any crime. You see the police walking around all the time.

If you enjoy a drink or a smoke then Gibraltar is the place for you, prices are sometimes as much as four or five times cheaper than many other countries!! We only allow smoking on the balcony...

Gibraltar is a British Colony, is known as little Britain, it has all the shops you expect to see in a Uk high Street, from M&S, British Home Stores, Next, Monsoon and many more, including many of the designer stores. For food we have Morrison's so you can treat yourselves to all your usual food, plus we have a really good produce market.

We have two bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, and bathroom, all rooms have concealed lighting with dimmer switches.

The lounge has 42" Lcd Tv, cable Tv, Dvd, Broad band, wireless internet, incoming telephone calls, leather sofa, table and chairs, nest of tables, cushions and pictures.

The Rock of Gibraltar region

Weather on the whole is very good, in the summer its fairly hot but with a sea breeze and in winter the days are mostly nice, a bit like a nice summers day in the UK, 21C, you will sometimes have a rainy day in winter but usually the clouds roll back the next day and the sun comes out.

Gibraltar is like the UK was 30 years ago, very safe and hardly any crime. You see the booby's walking around

in the winter with their helmets on and in the summer with shorts, T-shirts and flat caps, but always

very visible.

Sandy Bay

Most times of the year there is lots going on in Gibraltar, as it is small place people like to enjoy themselves, so they make time to have festivals, fairs, fireworks, concerts, having fun is always on the agenda.

In Casements Square Tourist Board will give you what's on in Gibraltar for the month.

Both Worlds is on the East side of Gibraltar so away from the airport so no noise from the airport.

"Fantastic apartment overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar"

This is a lovely apartment. Perfect for a family trip as all appliances are on hand, whereas in a hotel you lack cooking and fridge facilities. We particularly loved the view from the balcony, it overlooks the Strait of Gibraltar. You can sit and unwind, watching the ships pass by. Maggie the owner is lovely and easy to get in contact with if any problems arise. My only criticism is that the fridge is in the main bedroom. Probably not suitable for light sleepers. Otherwise a lovely place to hang your head after a long day exploring the sights of Gibraltar, Morocco and/or Spain.

Gibraltar itself was brilliant. A must see is the dolphins. We saw lots of stripped dolphins but it is common to see bottlenose and common dolphins as well. I would recommend the dolphin safari aka the blue boat! You get a 10% discount to local restaurants with the dolphin safari ticket. Another must is ascending to the top of the rock via the Cable car. You get sublime views from the top and it is a lovely walk to the attractions (bring your walking boots/shoes), of course you can do the coach tour of the rock but you miss out on things you'd see if you walked it. Moorish Castle, St Michaels Cave, the Great Siege Tunnels are good too.

My personal favourite part of the holiday was the Barbary apes, DO NOT feed the apes you could see yourself getting a £500 fine if you are caught, plus it is food that makes the apes aggressive. We didn't feed the apes and they were very content around us, even had an ape sit next to us for half an hour! It was lovely and the kids loved them.

"It was ok but slightly disappointed with the balcony"

I booked this apartment because of the view, the lovely balcony with telescope, it was very attractive, when we got there and got onto the balcony however it was completely different, it wouldn't have been a bad thing if we would have known but when we priced rooms up this one was a little bit more expensive than the basic one we had seen before, but the balcony looked so lovely we paid the extra. I was a bit upset about this as I envisaged looking at the stars at night. The apartment itself looked more or less as the pictures and considering the number of guests it aparently gets it was pretty well as expected. There were a few teeny things missing in the kitchen my hubby is a chef so noticed as we needed them, this wasnt a major problem. The water is a pain though there is very little water pressure. The view was amazing from the balcony, I do agree with the reference made below that it is disappointing to not get what you paid for and I have spoken to Maggie who has explained that they were supposed to be doing some development work earlier in the year but it didnt happen which is why they left the pictures the same , thats not really fair to us the other people who booked or new bookers. I will say to people looking for a fair apartment with an ok basic balcony then this is the apartment for you its adequate but in comparison to others dont expect the picture perfect as advertised. If it was me I would have offered discount to all of those I had misled, even future discount would have been an incentive and now at least we would know what to expect. The computer didnt work probably a godsend to be honest and the cable was basic but again better to be out and about. The stairs to the beach were a couple of metres away from the apartment as the ones next door are private it was no mither to go down the outside ones and you got a great view. Gibraltar is amazing and if I ever won the lottery would consider retiring there. The people are friendly and I didnt get pushed to buy anything. I will say take comfy shoes as walking is a must and the town goes on forever. Shop around for rock tours, go with the taxi drivers but watch because some charge more than others. Same with the dolphin tours one set charge 50.00 the other 28.00 for the same number of people. There is a wonderful indoor market as you go into casemates square on the right. And if you go to spain there is a market on a Wed, go over the border and turn right walk for 5 minutes and you will see it. Sunday is their quiet day. If you stay at both worlds walk 10 mins towards the hotel behind it is the most beautiful beach, with all the facilities you could need. I would recommend you purchase a cheap beach umbrella and take it with you the sand gets amazingly hot and can burn your feet in the hot months. The lady who looks after the place for Maggie was nice and offered any help we would need, which was appreciated. I am going to tick yes I would recommend but I would do so with caution and make sure they knew everything about the place first.

"wonderful once again"

Stayed for nearly a month in November and was our 2nd visit to this apartment, it is lovely as on the level
so suitable for all ages. We got to meet Maggie this time and a really lovely lady and really helpful.
Every thing you need is there. But it is great just sitting on the balcony overlooking the Straits.
We are always in Gibraltar and this side is our favourite, it is so easy to get into town with bus juust a few minutes stroll to the bus stop.
Amusing to see the monkeys all along there and whereas they used to be seen just early mornings
seem to be there at all times now.
Cannot wait to go back. and fly into the new airport.

"Excellent place to stay with a superbly equipped apartment!"

Stayed in Mid October with partner and had a fabulous time. The weather was still great despite it being later in the year, was still hot enough to wear a bikini and go in the sea!
The appartment was excellently equipped with everything you would need and the balcony was lovely, especially being at the top so you wasnt overlooked by anyone. Lovely appartment with lots of light flowing through the windows overlooking the sea. Comfy and clean and well thought out.
Lots to do, especially with having easy access to Spain. Would recommend St Micheals Cave, Exploring the rock by cable car and if you really want to travel out of gibraltar, then Terifa Beach is amazing!!!
We hired a car, but you could easily have a fantastic holiday without the need for a car as the buses are great and can take you all over the island regularly.
Internet access was a bonus as we could keep in touch with family that way. Really hoping to go again soon!
