“VIP Living” Wow, what can I say about this apartment? It was amazing. Echoing other reviews I can concur that the photographs do not do it justice. The customer service from George and his team was also first class.
We arrived in Gibraltar just before lunch and phoned the mobile number given to us and a lovely lady informed us that although we were a bit early we should head straight to the apartment and leave our cases with the cleaners. We were buzzed straight into the apartment and when we walked into the living room we were blown away by the view - floor to ceiling windows overlooking the bay.
An hour or so later (walking around the Morrison's next door) Lorraine met us and showed us around the apartment. First class luxury all the way from the aircon in every room to the huge 3D TV and free wifi. Then she left and kept her distance other that texting me updates when relevent. George later promptly returned me security deposit - no hassle.
We would stay in this apartment again in a heartbeat. Thanks George and team.
“Nice apartment in great location” Lovely two bed / two bathroom apartment, well kitted out, great location, harbour views from very large balcony, easy walk to main street, excellent hand over people for keys, local knowledge etc
“Spectacular!” This has been a most wonderful trip, We've not been to Gibraltar before and where expecting an average but pleasant stay, but it turned into one our our most memorable vacations ever!
Upon our arrival,we were warmly greeted by Stefan and Jo the owners of the apartment who also gave us some really useful local information. The apartment itself was really beautiful, clean and very well maintained and has a quaint nautical theme to it which really adds an ambience and taste of the marina and bay.
Looking out the living room windows we where treated to breathtaking views of luxury yachts in the harbour and distant shores tantalisingly visible on the horizon. As we sat in the evening on the private veranda sipping wine we where treated to magnificent sunsets, spectacular even at that early time of the year! After some much needed retail therapy during the day we really appreciated returning to the marina, with its vibrant night-life its many relaxing bars and restaurants situated close to our apartment building.
I could go on and on about Gibraltar itself its true, but what really made the trip so wonderful and so memorable for us, was this gem of an apartment!
All I can say is thank you Jo and Steffan so much for a truly memorable stay!! and we hope to see you again very soon.
“Excellent stay at this beautiful apartment, Excellent patio area.” We had a brilliant stay at this excellent apartment. Carol is a lovely woman to deal with. Josie that picked us up from the airport was also lovely. This apartment has everything you need, plenty of towels and bedding. Air con is great. Washing machine is great as is out door clothes line. Lovely private large patio area with plenty of seating and loungers. Awnings are great but do remember to close them in when your not using them as sometimes it can get windy. The beach has recently been worked on and it's fabulous, you are only a few steps away from the beach as your on the lower ground. We have been to Gibraltar a few times and find it very relaxing. We hope to be back again soon and we would definitely stay at this apartment again, thank you Carol for everything, Marie, Andrew and Kids.
“Lovely view and location” The apartment is very spacious and well stocked with all you need. They supplied a cot was handy and saved bringing ours, however they said there would be a high chair what there was not what made it a little difficult to feed are active toddler.
On arrival Susanne was very helpful and friendly. Could do with a little more info on how to use air conditioning, dishwashers and tv. Maybe a booklet in the apartment would be helpful in future.
The apartment is in a great location as you can easily access the marina bars and restaurants and also a short stroll to the town. Especially as the best pizza takeout is a 2 min walk away opposite the bus stop on the way into town!!
The pools are lovely and not to busy, always able to get a subbed. The sun doesn’t hit the pool to lunchtime and is their till 8/9pm at night. It’s well looked after and very clean.
Are only con and in are opinion a big one was that their was no cushions on the balcony furniture making very uncomfortable to use!! As we have 3 children we stayed in most evenings after a busy day by the pool and enjoy sitting out playing cards and games with the kids enjoying the breathtaking view. But without cushions on the seats it ruined it for us!!
Obviously there is building work going but it did not bother us, but be prepared to see builders working when using the balcony in the day. The noise could not really be heard from inside the apartment and they start at 8am till 7pm at night. Their not there at weekends.
Overall had a lovely family holiday
“Beautiful apartment” Having stayed at this apartment recently for three weeks, we found it very clean and well
equipped with beautiful views , in a very convenient position looking over pools and marina,
an apartment one doesn`t want to leave. Very highly recommended and would use again.
“Great apartment - would not hesitate to recommend booking a stay.” This apartment is in a great location for accessing everything Gibraltar has to offer. It is within easy reach of the airport and the bigger supermarkets either on foot or a short straightforward bus ride away. You can reach all of the shops and restaurants in the main centre by foot and this apartment makes the perfect base for a stay in Gibraltar. We visited in Feb 2014 and if we return to Gibraltar would not stay anywhere else. The apartment has all the modern conveniences you could need, was spotlessly clean and very spacious. Peter, the property manager, was friendly and efficient in all his correspondence before we arrived and the process was very smooth. He was incredibly accommodating on our arrival and took the extra time to point us in the right direction for shops and somewhere to eat which really made a great difference when we had just arrived in strange surroundings. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment.
“Spacious apartment with lovely swimming pool area.” The apartment has plenty of room for four adults. The apartment is well kitted out with everything you need in the kitchen plus English tv channels and Wi-Fi. The balcony is large but we only got the sun on it in the early morning provided there was no morning cloud over the rock. The only negative was the traffic noise when sat on the balcony as it is above a busy road. The swimming pool area is lovely and peaceful. There is no reserving of sunbeds! We usually got to the pool around 1030-1100 and were the first ones there. It gets more busy mid to late afternoon but sunbeds were aplenty.
A large Morrison's is less than a 10 minute walk and is only slightly more expensive than at home. Casemate's square is just across the road which leads to the shops many of which are high street shops in the UK. The shopping isn't cheaper than the UK except for alcohol cigarette's and perfume.
Overall a lovely holiday.
“Great place to stay!” Lovely homely apartment with all the home comforts you could wish for. You can stay in if you want to completely relax, or hop on a bus to go out - or walk if you are more energetic! If you don't like washing up duties at home, you will here! Standing at the sink you will be looking out through the balcony door across the sea, hearing the waves on the beach. You can eat in or eat out - just a short distance away is Catalan Bay where you can sit outside again overlooking the sea and is quieter than Main Street or Ocean Village if you prefer. The lovely beach is right underneath the apartment, just a few steps down. The only thing I could wish for is Wi-Fi to reach the apartment, so I wouldn't have to get dressed to go to the Reception area to check-in for our flights home online!
