Why Sue chose Sitges
Its your choice, either the inner Sitges town appeals with the busy bustling atmosphere, or you prefer to be surrounded by the sea.
What makes this Apartment unique
Its uniqueness and charm must be self evident in the fotos. Apart from it being a pleasant well equipped apartment the proximity to the sea is extraordinary. You really do feel like you are on the helm of a ship. The swimming pool is on your doorstep. And access to the beach is 6minutes walk away. And proximity to major European airport.

Apartment was well equipped. Great Views. Great Location--Easy to get in and out for day trips.
My wife, 2 daughters and myself spent 6 nights here during June 2017. We couldn't have imagined a better place to stay. This was our first stay as a family on the Mediterranean and it was what one would have imagined--beautiful views, crystal clear water, rugged cliffs and a wonderful seaside town with an incredible beach, shops, boardwalk and restaurants. We spent 3 days on the main Sitges beach and did 2 day trips to Barcelona and Montserrat. Both were very close and easy to get to--the highway is within a minute or two drive from this apartment. Also, going to the supermarket and getting in and out of areas of Sitges are mere minutes' drive from this apartment. We also loved that there was a nice pool at this location. We cooked dinner in the apartment on two evenings and there were all the pots/pans, dishes and utensils one would need. We really appreciated that due to our prior stay in London in which the apartment we had rented, had barely a stocked kitchen. This apartment and location were such a relaxing and lovely retreat for us--we quickly forgot the hustle and grind of the city and our normal, daily lives. If we ever return to this area of Spain, I would look at this apartment first for availability. If available, I would look no further.
Thrilled you had a lovely stay. Thank you
If you like being by the water, this is the place for you!
This was exactly the kind of place we were looking for to spend the last 12 days of a one month trip to Europe in celebration of our anniversary. The host Sue is wonderful and she accommodated our last minute request to book the property in a very efficient, friendly, and professional manner. The apartment is quite comfortable, well stocked with kitchen supplies, and also has some nice upgrades, The view was absolutely beautiful and captivating. We especially enjoyed watching the surfers! There is easy access to the train station (if you have a car or like to walk)to explore Barcelona and the surrounding area and trains run very often. We had a car, and parking at the property was very convenient and free. Would definitely recommend this property.
View alone is worth it
Nice spot right overtop the waves crashing, and an amazing view. Much nicer sounds than a few of the trains behind the building. Never an inconvenience but the second bedroom hears the trains more. Quite a long walk into town, not suited for young kids unless taxi an option. Good grocery 10 min walk away. They will call a cab if you ask when you get your things. Wifi worked but was a tad slow, typical of rural areas, but it wasn't a problem for a bit of work. Beaches were really nice and the water was warm and good for swimming, where as the unheated pool was just nice to dip since it was cold in Sept. Mattresses were a bit firm for our family's liking. Sue the owner went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable on a cool night. Overall a great getaway, and Sitges is really lovely.
The most relaxing holiday - ever!
This property HAS to have the best views in Sitges?! Breathtaking. My friends and I felt like millionaires! The apartment is truly amazing. Clean, comfortable and contemporary. The sound of the sea crashing on the rocks below is SO relaxing. There's a beach within 5 minutes walk, the marina with bars and restaurants is 10 minutes away and Sitges town is a 15-minute stroll. We loved being a little way out of the centre. That way, we had the choice of being in the thick of things or not. Sue are Di are really helpful from first contact and you'll want for nothing. For a holiday that's out of this world (and to make your friends and family jealous!) this is the place to be. We'll DEFINITELY be back! Thanks Sue and Di.
Everything was as shown in the photo
It was all very positive and the description of the apartment was accurate. I stayed for a week in June with my husband and two grown up sons and we all had a fantastic time. The apartment was delightful and the views were to die for. Sitges had something for all of us to enjoy, beach, bars, pool and Barcelona was only 40 mins away by train so we had a couple of days shopping and sightseeing there too. Sue, the owner and her friend Di were very helpful and suggested great restaurants to go to. The apartment is located in the quieter part of town which suited me but was only 15 mins walk to the marina and the bars for the boys to enjoy their nights out. Overall 10/10.
Beautiful clean, bright and airy apartment, Family Beach 7 mins walk, friendly restaurants.
Sue was prompt and very helpful with my many questions before the holiday. There was a problem with one of the door handles which I reported and very promptly a man turned up to fix it. Apartment was beautiful and well maintained. Pool was clean. The local beach was lovely, sea warm enough to swim in late May and the bar was on hand for refreshing drinks and snacks. There is some building work being done next to the property so we had to dodge the tractors and man holes but it didn't bother us, wasn't too noisy and the workmen always stopped and waved as we walked past. It just added to the adventure of the holiday. Barcelona was an easy train ride away but most days we headed to the beach, walked to Main Sitges and soaked in the rays. One day we hired a boat, took a picnic and dived in the sea. Beautiful. We decided not to hire a car and caught taxi's. It cost 65 euros from Barcelona airport to the property. Then to stock up for the week it was 7 euros back from the local supermarket which the supermarket rang for us. Bars and restaurants were super friendly. An all round great holiday.
Thanks for the positive review. Its always good for some families to know that its not an imperative to rent a car if you are eager walkers. We do advise it, as most people seem to want the ease of it.
Yes the pathway to the beach was a bit irregular for a couple of weeks. But its now done. And hopefully the neighbouring works wont be a bother. The view is uninterrupted, & I'm told its not too noisy by other guests and neighbours. Although I'm not on site, to assess. Pleased you enjoyed yourselves. Sue
