Superb private balcony great to fall asleep to the sound of the sea and wake to a lovely sunrise. The apartment was clean and was a home from home. Milk tea water etc provided thanks Judy. A short walk away is Catalan Bay which has a small shop and a few restuarants. The shuttle bus was great to get in to town with very friendly driver's. The bedroom had aircon and the shower had good pressure. A great place to stay !

Very good communication from Judy . Good explanation about property and buses. Milk, tea provided which was very welcome. The property was very well equipped,everything you needed for a self catering holiday. The rooms were clean light and airy and the air conditioning in the bedroom was very welcome at night. I loved watching the ships from the balcony.The only thing I was disappointed about was the beach was being renovated so couldn't use it. It will be lovely when finished!
I liked the fact that it was quiet and out of the way but close enough to town to walk if you are up to it. Can't get over the fact though that buses stop at 21.00. so used to them running through night in London!

"WOW WHAT A VIEW !!!!!!!!!"
My husband and I stayed in this apartment after Christmas for a few days. We found the apartment to be very clean comfy and well equiped.With stunning views from the balcony, there is nothing we could fault with this apartment.
With just a short walk to Catalan Bay where there is small shop for any essentials and a couple of restuarants which we found very reasonably priced. Or if you prefer to go a little further there is a bus from the reception at Both World's which will take you into town.
We found Both World's to be a great place to chill out and relax but within easy reach of the town.
We are missing the sound of the sea sending us to sleep at night, so thank you Judy the apartment is super and yes we will return.
