The apartment is just as described and the location ideal. Owner Roy responded quickly, provided clear instructions to find the apartment, and information on the surrounding area. An easy walk to the beautiful beach at San Pol. Having a car proved ideal although not essential if you are not planning day trips. A wide range of restaurants in nearby San Feliu de Guixols. Highly recommend Taverna La Cava and El Celler de Triton.
A lovely apartment in a lovely situation. it was very well appointed and suited us perfectly
Everything about the apartment was great. Its a pity that a hotel is being built on front of it. It doesn't take away a view of the sea but it would be perfect if it wasn't there. I would love to return. All in all very happy with it.
Spacious, stylish, well-equipped apartment
Loved the property, despite the building works opposite (just have to position your chair to look to the sea view on the right!) it was great being within easy walking distance of Sant Feliu with its produce market, shops and fine selection of restaurants. Sant Pol beach is lovely (even lovelier is Sa Conca, a lovely half hour walk away along the coastal path) and the little cove below the apartment spectacular. The only slight minus is the car-parking situation: the designated space in the underground car-park is really only suitable for a VERY small car. However, all in all a fabulous, relaxing break. Thanks!
Fantastic Place & Location + Welcoming Owners
Lovely clean well equipped apartment over looking the Bay of San Pol.
Initially on holiday with family and friends we decided to extend our stay so we could explore some of the local coastline we had heard so much about and decided to find an apartment for a few days for just the 2 of us.
The area does not disappoint a very pretty bay with a relaxed friendly feel to it.
A 5 minute walk down to the bay where we found a good selection of cafes and a great beach.
There is a lovely coastal walk which took abut half an hour and brought us out at the larger neighbouring bay of San Felui as you would expect a bigger beach and plenty of shops and cafes Lovely place for an evening stroll round the shops and a bite to eat.
The apartment had everything we needed we like a home from home feel and that's exactly what this is, well equipped 2 good sized bedrooms with plenty of wardrobes and storage. 2 bathrooms both with decent showers and spotlessly clean with loads of fresh towels provided. Although it was just the 2 of us there is plenty of room for 4/5 people in this apartment
Living/dinning room area is comfortable light and airy which opens up on to the balcony with a decent TV Good wireless connection and a printer (came in handy for our boarding passes)
I love to cook and the galley style kitchen felt fresh and bright and is well equipped with everything you need to throw a meal together.
The building sits in beautifully maintained gardens.The Pool is a great temperature and a great space. secure plenty of sunbeds and room enough to have your own little corner
The review about the construction work naturally made us want to speak to the owners before our stay, Roy was very honest and advised us of the current status of the construction which I am happy to say did not put us off or more importantly did not spoil our stay in fact the sunrise is something else and we were both amazed how lovely the view was.
Roy and Janice are very welcoming and helpful with a great knowledge of the area. We will definitely book with them again.
Thanks for a great stay
Chris and Jay
Thanks Chris and Jay for your feedback. It's always a good feeling when guests have enjoyed staying in our home. We're glad you were able to do plenty and take advantage of many of the local highlights. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Beware! Two tower cranes spoiled the sea view.
We rented the apartment for one week in late September 2014. It was described as having “stunning sea views” and the main picture (photo 1 of 22) on the website did give that impression. However, we were shocked on arrival to find that two tower cranes on a building site immediately across the road from the apartment completely spoiled the sea view. There was noise from the cranes and from the building site during the day, which ruined our enjoyment of the apartment and its terrace. In September 2014 it seemed as though only the basement of the new building had been constructed, so in 2015 it will be higher and it is possible that some of the sea view will be lost. Although I sympathise with the owner for having this new development on his doorstep, I think it is utterly wrong of him not to have updated the photographs on the website – he has not done so even now (April 2015) which is over one year after the cranes appeared (according to him). Of the 22 photos on the website, numbers 1 (the main one showing the sea view), 4 and 11 are not fair representations, unless the cranes have already disappeared (which I doubt). If they have disappeared and the building works are completed, you should expect to find a large new building between the apartment and the sea, possibly blocking the view. Inside the block the nearest lift was out of action for our whole week and the parking in the basement garage is quite tight - just about OK for a medium sized car. The communal areas form an open quadrangle backing onto a steep hill, which makes them sombre. The apartment itself was generally clean and is very bright, but the sunlight showed that the shelves and some other surfaces were dusty. The kitchen and second bedroom look onto the hillside and are consequently very dark. All of the flat's amenities worked OK, but the kitchen is dated and some of the oven equipment was dirty. The circuit breakers had tripped some time prior to our arrival and some food left in the freezer had more than defrosted and pervaded half the apartment with a bad smell for a day or so, until we scrubbed the freezer clean a couple of times. The two bathrooms were clean and modern and the linen provided was also clean and sufficient. The beach equipment and towels were fine. In all other respects the apartment was satisfactory during our stay, but our abiding memory of the apartment was the building site immediately in front and consequently we do not recommend it as a holiday let.
I was very disappointed to receive such a negative review from Peter which is in total contrast to the feedback from the other eight families that stayed with us in 2014. The review was written some 8 months after his holiday and presents a false impression of the apartment and area. I am concerned that it has more to do with us being unable to agree a financial solution.
Certainly when Peter stayed, the hotel across the street ,but below our elevated balcony level, was under construction and there were two cranes on the site. The photos at the time were taken when the previous three storey hotel existed and the bay view was over the old building. At the time of the visit more of the bay than ever was visible. The main construction has now been finished and the new building is one storey higher than the old. While this has impacted the original view, guests can still sit on the terrace and enjoy far reaching views around the bay to the mountains, the opposite peninsular and out to sea. The photographs on the website reflect the latest situation. The new building is currently being fitted out and the exterior being faced. There is still one crane, but very little other disruption and work normally stops in the peak holiday period. Guests who have booked this year are being kept fully up to date.
With regard to Peter's other complaints neither I nor the agents were aware of them until reading this review. Our agents are professional and work to a very high standard; they have always acted swiftly to guest requests. We have always used the same agents and they are totally familiar with the property and area. There is also a concierge living on site. We encourage guests to notify us as soon as possible of any problems.
The building and apartment are regularly maintained and kept to the standard our guests would expect of one of the area’s premier buildings. This year the outside of the building has been repainted, communal lighting upgraded and the kitchen completely renovated including new appliances. There are two lifts equidistant from the front door.
The garden is a beautiful, shady and calm respite from the hot summer sun. It has many mature plants and trees and over 4,000 bedding plants are put in each year. While I am sorry that Peter did not enjoy his holiday I, and our other recent guests, believe that it is a high quality apartment in a beautiful part of the Costa Brava.
I could look at that view forever
We had a great stay in this apartment, with one of the highlights being our meals on the balcony looking at the view. The owner, Roy, met us as arranged & provided us with all the touristy type information we needed plus some food which allowed us to have a lunch before heading out to the local supermarket.
There are lots of coastal walks in the area which are very easy to undertake. We also enjoyed the nearby seaside towns.
The property is located overlooking the Platja San Pol in Sant Feliu de Guixols.The beach, part of the up market resort of S'Agaro, is a 5 minute walk.
