About M Edwards

We live in this beautiful area of Cornwall, and Beech Cottage is our holiday rental home.

We also have available to rent, our holiday apartment in Almeria, Spain.

M Edwards purchased this apartment in 2008

Why M Edwards chose Roquetas

We found this area whilst on out honeymoon in Spain, and love the unspoilt desert scenery of the Cabo de Gata, and the Spanish family feel of the resort of Roquetas de Mar.

What makes this apartment unique

There is plenty to do for all the family, with playparks on the beach, a long promenade with stalls and entertainments in the Summer, and fantastic tapas bars and seafood restaurants. The beach runs the length of the town, so is seldom crowded, and is just a 5 minute walk from the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kirsten, Surrey "Ideal"

The apartment is ideally set up for a young family providing adequate accommodation for four of us and a baby. The apartment overlooks the pool area (includes smaller pool for younger children) so it was easy to keep an eye on everybody at the same time. Alternatively it is only a 10 minute walk to the large spacious beach which is never busy even at peak season. There is plenty to do in the evenings, browsing the many bars, shops, restaurants and children's' play parks. Walking along a further 20 minutes will lead you into the Urbanization (the main town area) with an even wider range of evening entertainment. There is a super fun fair for the kids that really comes alive after dark.

If you hire a car you have a choice of visiting many other attractions. The local waterpark is only 10 minutes away or if you fancy a drive exploring the mountains there is a wild west park that my kids really enjoyed eventhough many of the shows were in Spanish.

The larger supermarkets and main shopping centre are a 5-10min drive or there is a local convenience store 5 minutes walk away.

The location of this apartment, its facilities and local amenities meant that, as a family, we could enjoy a relaxing, stress-free, entertaining holiday. We will be going back for a third time this year and don't hesitate to recommend it to our friends.



Emily, Cornwall "Excellent"

I travelled with a friend and 2 children and we were all really happy with the apartment. It was within a secure locked complex with a lovely pool which the balcony over looked. We enjoyed trips to the near by beach and enjoyed walking around the town. Overall a lovely apartment, I would recommend it.

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped for a holiday. The location was ideal with plenty of parking and just a 5 minute walk from the promenade, where there were some excellent restaurants and cafes. Weather brilliant for March; great holiday!

Not impressed

  • 1 of 5

Apartment not suitable for our needs,and as we don't go out at nights English TV would have been appreciated.

Owner's Response: I'm afraid that we dont have English TV...the apartment is in Spain, and we find that most guests like to take in the Spanish atmosphere in the town, or eat Al Fresco on the apartment terrace overlooking the pool, rather than watching English TV! However there is English TV in some of the English bars in the town, for those occasions when it is missed! We are disappointed that the guests gave us 1 star on this point alone, as it is clearly stated in the ad that the TV is Spanish Freeview, and there is a DVD player and a selection of English DVDs too.

Dirty

  • 1 of 5

We found the directions difficult to follow so we had to get the property manager to meet us which he kindly did. We found the property to be very run down & unclean. Mop bucket was full of dirty water, the sofa was shedding bits off the plastic cover, bedding & throws were stained, cutlery & crockery had to all be washed before use. But worse was the bathroom which was sticky, both the bath & toilet had to be scrubbed, there was no toilet paper or cleaning materials. The final straw was when I was almost attacked getting out of the lift by bulldog, this in an apartment block that is supposed to be dog free. So we left after only 15 days of a 31 day booking and found alternative accommodation. When we contacted the owner we found her to be unsympathetic and unhelpful. We would not recommend this apartment in the state it is in to anyone.

Owner's Response: We were very shocked to see these comments; when my manager met the guests they were very pleased with the apartment and the cleanliness. It was more than 2 weeks later that the guests said that they wanted to leave and only then did they mention any issues. They could have called our manager at any time if they had had a problem. There are no dogs allowed in our apartment, or in the communal grounds, but the complex itself isnt "dog free" and I'm afraid that we really cannot be held responsible for the behaviour of other people's dogs. We feel that these guests wanted to leave due to personal circumstances, and thought they would try to get a refund. As we had already offered an extremely cheap rate for the month we were unable to do that. On top of that, when my manager inspected the apartment after these guests had left, she found that they had left it in a very untidy state, with the gentleman having seemingly cut his hair in the corner of the room and left it there!! After fastidious cleaning after these guests left, the apartment is is a perfect state to be let out, and we have had many happy guests throughout the year.
