Overview

San Feliu de Guixols Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Residential apartment, 2 beds, 2 baths, lots of space and close to everything!

Imagine being in a modern, spacious, air conditioned, apartment with balcony views of the marina and within a five minute stroll of the beach...

And because it's not in a holiday development, the neighbours are not so noisy, care more about their surroundings and aren't so inclined to use the pool - leaving more time and space for you.

You can walk to the market every day for the freshest fruit, vegetables, meat and, of course, fish. That's when you are not going for an early morning kayak, dive or swim...

Sant Feliu de Guixols is one of the nicest and best small towns on the Costa Brava. It is not a holiday resort, but a living Catalan town with the culture, the Catalan lifestyle, the shops and restaurants so admired by well-healed visitors from Barcelona. But, of course, the beach is beautiful, the bay stunning and the facilities for visitors second to none.

Marona is a spacious apartment in a residential block within walking distance of Sant Feliu de Guixols, the Marina, the beach and the whole of Sant Feliu. But because it is not in the centre of town, it provides a wonderful haven at the end of a busy day.

It is on the first floor of the two storey block and can be accessed by stairs or lift.

It is not in a 'holiday block' and therefore we are looking for guests who want a great, convivial time, but not a riotous one! By the same token, this means that, although very central, you are unlikely to be disturbed by many marauding holidaymakers despite being so close to the action.

Marona boasts a excellent living area (21 square metres) with a dining table that can accommodate six, two three seater sofas and an enormous French window off to a spacious balcony with views across the Marina to the left and the hills to the right.

We have recently acquired an electric 'plancha' or barbecue grill wich is ideal for use on the balcony without running the risk of upsetting the neighbours!

It has two spacious bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other which can either be a twin or a very comfy double, and ample storage. The master bedroom also has a large en suite bathroom.

There is also a family bathroom with shower.

The very well equipped kitchen is more spacious than most, with a breakfast table which can accommodate four cosily, the usual mod cons and a dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a utility room with washing machine.

The air conditioning and heating are quiet and efficient so Marona is ready for your visit at any time of year. The wifi is high speed and unlimited. The only thing we deliberately do not have is a TV because we are encouraging you to talk to each other and have fun together!

Underneath the block you have your own indoor parking space and access to the 12m swimming pool which forms the central space of the block.

You can stroll to the Sant Feliu beach in five minutes or wander along the coast the other way until you get to Platja Sant Pol which is the haunt of wealthy French and Spanish Riviera types (!).

Sant feliu is teeming with things to do and places to see. If you like hiking or biking, sant feliu is ideal. If you want to explore Catalunya, what a base and if you are here for a rest then that's fine too!

Property registered with the Ajuntament de Sant Feliu de Guixols register number E2013006056 dated 05/07/2013

About Peter and Lucy Noble

We are a semi retired couple who have a house in the mountains in Catalunya and a couple of holiday properties on the coast.

We finished our business lives in Summer 2012 and are looking to travel, live and learn.

We love Catalunya, its people, its history and its life and would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

We live in London, escaping to Catalunya, Burgundy and Iceland(!) whenever we can.

Peter and Lucy Noble purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Peter and Lucy Noble chose San Feliu de Guixols

Marona is so ideal for people like us who like to have fun but value creature comforts.

It is in the thick of it but relatively quiet. You have a choice of two excellent beaches, one literally minutes away on foot.

It has some stunning views and you can watch the fishing boats entering and leaving the harbour. It is more of a holiday home than a squashed rental.

You can easily walk to anywhere you are likely to want to go in Sant feliu but also have an excellent base from which to explore.

There is secure off street parking, but you don't need a car if you don't want one.

We aim to treat guests as we would friends who visit us. We want guests to have the best time, and maybe also also to bear in mind that this is our home.

Anyone who books with us has access to the guest-only area of our website which gives you real insights into local events, activities, restaurants and cuisine and even explains why so many Brits never get the coffee they think they are ordering!

What more can we say?!

What makes this apartment unique

Marona is just so very handy for everything. What we like best about it is that it's so easy.

There is enough space to settle, the lift means you can choose not to use the stairs if you are tired after a hard day's exploring, you can walk to the restaurants and weave slowly back without having to worry about driving.

You are right in the middle of natural phenomena - the glorious Mediterranean, stunning coves and beach walks and, of course, the beautiful cork forests.

We like to think that we treat our guests with a bit more thought and personal interest than most landlords. For example, we don't pack people in, squeezing eight into an apartment intended for four... We don't have a conveyor belt of Saturday to Saturday bookings which results in every single guest HAVING TO arrive late and leave early...we try to let you know what's on when you are visiting so you don't miss gems etc etc

And we have already mentioned the guest-only areas of our website...

Beautiful apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have just returned from a wonderful stay in Marona. The apartment is beautifully decorated and well thought out with everything needed to create a 'home from home'. We were staying with our two young children and found the apartment to be an ample size for the four of us. The bedrooms were both a really good size and the beds very comfortable indeed, the kitchen has everything needed to cook if you want to but the town of Sant Feliu has so many lovely restaurants that we ate out most of the time. The living area is also a very good size and the balcony is lovely to relax with a book in the evening sunshine.

The town of Sant Feliu was perfect for us, we didn't want a typical 'little England' resort so we were really pleased to see a real Spanish town (not one 'full English breakfast' sign to be seen! ). You really do get a feel for Spanish life here, the town has some beautiful shops, cafes and patisseries and the beach is lovely. We spent a few evenings wandering around the marina and along the sea front, the children especially liked the play park next to the beach too - perfect!

Thank you Peter and Lucy for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful apartment and for all the information regarding the events in the town during our stay, we all had a wonderful holiday.

We would recommend Marona to anyone, it is a very special place and somewhere we will always remember.

Owner's Response: Dear Sally and family,

Many thanks indeed for your very generous review and for evoking Marona and Sant Feliu de Guixols so beautifully.

We too like to stay in accommodation that makes us feel we are in a home from home when we go on holiday so we have tried hard to provide those touches that make Marona homely rather than Spartan and "just a holiday let".

Sant Feliu really is a gem of the Costa Brava and its strapline "Open all year round" is very accurate because so many Catalans actually live and work there (and the well-heeled of Barcelona also weekend and holiday there). We love the idea that you can enjoy the somewhat more sophisticated shopping and entertainment of an authentic Catalan town but also have all the fun of the beach and then of course the magnificent coastline, great outdoors and fabulous excursions such as Dali's houses, the historic towns, villages and the ancient ruins of the Province of Girona. You can tell we are fans too!

Thank you again for your review - we really appreciate it.

With warm regards,

Peter and Lucy

Great Property and location

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this property - it was beautifully equipped with the added extra of a starter set of food and drink left in the fridge for our arrival. All the little things were there that take the hassle out of the first visit to the shops - plenty of washing machine and dishwasher tablets and plenty of kitchen and loo roll.
Peter and Lucy are also very attentive during the booking process and on arrival to ensure everything is set up and ready to go.
The apartment is also in a great location in the town - quiet but everything within a 5 minute walk. There are also other walks and sights within 30/40 mins up and down the coast that are very spectacular.

This October has been really lovely in Sant Feliu, demonstrating really well that July and august are not the only times to go to the Costa Brava.

We want our guests to feel at home and it loos like we have succeeded for your visit!

With best regards, and thank you again for your kind words.

Modern, comfortable, stunning appartment

  • 5 of 5
Firstly, we cannot thank the owners and property managers enough, from our initial enquiry to our leaving day, every question and query were answered in a timely, friendly informative manner. All, really do go the extra mile to ensure you have a fantastic stay in Sant Feliu. The apartment with a lovely sea view, is situated a short 5 minute walk from the centre of Sant Feliu. The apartment is more than comfortable for a home away from home holiday. Fully fitted kitchen and utility with the added bonus of high speed WiFi. We stayed with our toddler and the space was also, very much appreciated, after a fun day in the sun.
Sant Feliu is a beautiful sleepy Catalan Town with a gorgeous sheltered bay/beach, within easy walking distance of the apartment. All cuisine tastes are met by the good selection of restaurants too. If you do fancy a night in, there is a great indoor and outdoor market, along with local supermarkets.
We would not hesitate to highly recommend Sant Feliu and most importantly, Apartment Marona.

Owner's Response: Dear all,

Thank you so much for your kind words - as we told you when you booked, this is one of our favourite times of year - although there is always something to do, see or experience, even when the sea is cold!

And thank you for being such delightful guests. We think Marona comes into its own with families with young children because you are so close to everything and yet can get back to comfort and relative peace and quiet.

"Home away from home" is indeed what we are aiming for, because it is only then that you can feel comfortable.

Thank you once again and we hope to see you again in Catalunya.

With warm regards,

Peter and Lucy

September in Marona

  • 5 of 5
Dear Peter & Lucy,

We have had such a lovely time.
The apartment was just what we were hoping for and more. Your attention to detail with the little things was wonderful. ( beach towels, games, beach umbrella, hair dryer, welcome food pack etc, etc.)
We loved Sant Feliu and the surrounding areas and will most certainly return as there is so much more to see.
Finally, thank you for your regular emails/helpful hints and above all, professionalism since we made the reservation 😊.

With best wishes,

Sam & Chris

Owner's Response: Dear Sam and Chris,

Many thanks for your lovely review, we really appreciate it!

We are so pleased that you enjoyed Marona as much as we do when we are there - the space, the homeliness and how very close it is to Sant Feliu without being surrounded by noise, hustle and bustle!

We like our guests to get the most out of their visit so tied to ensure that you had a heads up on anything going on.

Thank you again for being impeccable guests, you will have a very warm welcome when you return!

With warm regards,

Peter and Lucy :-)

Great apartment, great town

  • 5 of 5
Firstly, the service provided by the owners, Peter and Lucy, is second to none. Their detailed directions meant that finding the apartment were easy and that we were met by their rep on arrival. We were also met by beers in the fridge, eggs, bread etc and gifts for the kids - a lovely touch.
The apartment is large, modern yet homely. Our girls loved it- the wifi was great, the beds were comfy and the TV was not missed. The balcony is bigger than we expected and a great view of the harbour.
The town is also lovely - even has it's own Ramblas and not a British voice to be heard.
All highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Dear Jonny and family,

Thank you so much for your lovely review - we really appreciate it! And we are delighted that you found Marona as we wanted you to find it, comfortable, airy and convenient.

We too really enjoy Sant Feliu. It is such a real place, very Catalan but so easy to enjoy and find your way around. The "resorts" are nice to visit for a day, but after that it can just get too much - too built up, all the same and very frenetic.

We are glad the girls liked their presents - it's the least we could do when someone has a birthday on their holiday!

Thank you for being such great and thoughtful guests. You will always be welcome at Marona.

Owner's Response: Dear Maarten, Kirsten and family,

Thank you very much indeed for your review which we think sums up your experiences in a nutshell!

We work hard with Carmen to keep Marona as clean, fresh and modern as possible (for example, re painting every year, updating the mattresses regularly etc etc) and we are really pleased that you found it comfortable and up to date.

Sant Feliu is a marvellous place, especially for people with children and people who do not want just a resort holiday with discos, night clubs and the rest of it! We are so glad that you found lots to do with the children just a few minutes away from Marona.

In August we have the music festival - Porta Ferrada and many outdoor events which can generate some noise at night but we are glad that, as it is not noisy all the time and with the double glazing, you did not find it too noisy - that is the great benefit of being just a little outside of the town so we think you have a good balance between convenience and hustle and bustle. And we know that you really enjoyed seeing the fireworks from the balcony without having to go into Sant Feliu!

Thank you for being such lovely guests - you will receive a warm welcome back to Marona should you decide to come another year.

With best regards,

Peter and Lucy

Sant Feliu de Guixols

With a view over the beautiful Saint Feliu de Guixols Marina and within strolling distance of the beach, the water sports, the shops and the restaurants, this apartment is ideal for people who want an easy holiday - close enough to the action, but not too close.

But this is a residential complex so you don't get the mayhem that is possible with a resort complex or an apartment right in the centre of town - you get the best of both worlds.

We are literally three minutes from the Marina, five from the beach and 10 from all of the shops and restaurants you could wish for, including the fabulous Sunday market.

But if you want to explore further afield, with its own secure parking space and easy access to places like Girona, Barcelona, Empuries, Figueres, Cadaques etc., it is great for that too. If you love Salvaror dali or Antoni Gaudi then there is no better place to use as your base.

Sant Feliu's strap-line is 'Open all year round' and so it is. In the Summer it is an ideal place for a beach holiday with lots of activities, events and sights to see.

In Spring and Autumn you may well still be able to swim and you can delight in the verdant countryside as well as visit a vast range of historical and artistic sites in slightly cooler weather.

In Winter the see is 'Brava' or 'Wild' making it a sight to see and the restaurants, coffee shops etc are still open with many attractions still accessible but without the crowds and the heat.

The gastronomy is unsurpassed and even the basic dishes such as home made sausage and white beans or huevos Don Pablo are very tasty indeed.

From here you can easily access:

Girona with its marvellous architecture, shops and restaurants.

Barcelona with all it has to offer.

Empuries, the Roman and Greek remains with excellent mosaic floors remaining and a stunning view of the Mediterranean.

Dali-land - Figueres where the Dali Museum is, his house in Cadaques and Gala's 'Castle' in Pubol.

The night-life of Platja Aro (but with a nicer, more peaceful place to come home to).

Ullastret the ancient Iberian town with its 9th century Medaeval church.

Perelada with its 11th to 19th century buildings and artefacts.

La Bisbal, home of ceramics with so many shops and so little time!
