“Lovely apartment, great location”
Reviewed 6 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

First a caveat to anyone choosing this apartment. It is fully self catering, no housekeeping to turn up and clean or make the beds. Also, ensure that you have the keys with you when leaving as the door locks when you close it.

This is a decent sized one bedroom apartment. In the bedroom there are two single beds, two wardrobes with plenty of hanging space and drawer space. Two bedside tables and a chair. Above the beds there is a window at the top of the room which looks out into a covered area. Lights are on in this area at night and the curtain over this does not keep out all the light though. I didn't find it disturbed my sleep. The bed was comfortable, firm enough for me without being hard and soft enough without sinking.

Bathroom has bath with shower, plenty of power in the shower but in late morning/early afternoon I did run out of hot water a couple of times. Had no problems with early morning or early evening showers.
Large mirror over the sink, lighting pretty good and a decent hairdryer.

Cooking area is a galley style as shown in the pictures. Plenty of utensils and pans if you wish to cook. A kettle, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and electric juicer are provided. There are plenty of cups, plates, bowls and glasses.
Washing liquid and brushes are provided.
The only little niggle is that there is only on power socket for this area and though a double adapter is provided it means you can only keep 2 appliances running at any one time unless you use a multi socket extension - there is a 3 socket extension in the drawer.

Living area. Reasonably sized, comfortable settee, table with 2 chairs, cabinet and 42" modern TV. and a stand lamp with two lights. The TV has been changed since the pictures on the ad were taken and no longer needs a separate satellite as it is built in. If you wish to watch TV there are terrestrial channels in Spanish and a lot of satellite channels in Spanish, English, German, Russian, Arabic and Dutch. If you want BBC world news that is channel 281. TV has HDMI if you wish to link up your phone or laptop.
Internet connection is very good, I clocked it at around 65mbs down and 30mbs up.
Again, the only niggle here is the lack of power sockets, one behind the TV into which the TV, modem and wifi hub are plugged and one beside the settee which has the lamp plugged in. I take a 4 way extesion with me so I got around this problem quite easily.

Outdoors there is no private seating area. There are communal gardens and a pool area. There is also a gated area where you can hang wet laundry.

Location is excellent. At the front of the apartemnt complex is a row of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops, including two supermarkets. Other supermarkets are a short walk up Av de Tiranja and in the Cita center which is a short walk away.
10 minute walk to Yumbo or La Sandia, half an hour up to San Fernando and 10 minutes down to the beach.

All in all this is the best stocked self catering accommodation I have used. The lack of housekeeping may put some people off but for me it is preferred. A private outside area would have been nice but the communal pool area is fine.
This is a property that I would consider again.

Caroline, your description of my apartment is more accurate than mine :D It is exactly what you described: a very well located, decent and not pretentious place, with everything you need to enjoy nice holidays.
On the ad says "Managed by the owner", so no services are expected. Although bed linen and towels (many extras for changing) are provided.
I'm glad you enjoyed the new TV, it's a SMART TV, meaning that you don't need any HDMI cable to connect, just share the content from your device with the TV. And also can watch YouTube, Netflix, HBO if you own an account.
Hot water comes from the boiler located in the kitchen. It's you who manages the temperature and amount of water consumed. If you take longer, you'll be out of water sooner. Water is really precious on the island...
Although the outdoor area is not private, you are able to take chairs and even the table outside to enjoy your meal or relax reading.
It was a pleasure to meet you, you've been a lovely guest. I hope to see you again around here some other time. You are welcome :)
