Good location, lovely views and spotlessly clean!
Location ideal for to explore the Costa Da Morte and area. Numerous beaches within 30 minutes’ drive. There are walks, cycle rides and historic sites within easy driving. The apartment is fairly new and was probably the cleanest we’ve ever to been to, the owners are obviously meticulous and house-proud! A lovely bottle of wine and Spanish omelette waiting for our arrival. The view across the estuary from the rear windows was a welcome every morning. The twin bedroom is a good size, the double bedroom a bit smaller. Just enough wardrobe/drawer space for a family of four but short on hangers. The kitchen is new and appliances are high standard. A shortage of surface space and only basic utensils are provided so if you want to cook larger family meals you may well have to juggle spatulas! Bathrooms are well appointed. The main ensuite is almost a wet room with a dual mode shower - a welcome luxury. The only downside was that the whole family couldn’t have showers close together as the water tended to run out after about a shower and a half. There is no Wi-Fi although this is a listed amenity. This caused me a problem, I am self-employed and the nature of my work means that I have to check in regularly and deadlines can’t be changed just because I’m on holiday. I had not made alternative arrangements in advance. When we went to log on to the Wi-Fi we couldn’t find it and the internet access amenity had disappeared from the app! The owner said there was no internet access. On the .es HomeAway website it isn’t listed – but it is on the UK, Oz, Austrian and French websites. The owner was extremely helpful and apologetic and went to lengths to sort something out, offering a spare mobile or access at a local café. I didn’t use this in the end as the café bar didn’t open early enough and I got an upgrade package from my mobile phone provider, so I tethered. An important reason for booking this accommodation and was potentially a major inconvenience or extra expense. Clearly a problem with the HomeAway listings process. For us, 2 out of 4 are light sleepers and were woken during the night by heavier commercial vehicles or motorbikes and regularly woken when the road got a bit busier in daylight at 7am. It’s not constant and it’s not exactly a three-lane motorway(!) but it’s on the main coast road so it does get traffic. Despite a few minor glitches, we really enjoyed our week here with comfortable accommodation and hospitality. Happy to recommend.
