GREAT NEWS.......... Our apartment has met all the strict requirements of the local licensing authority in Almería and is now full licensed for rental purposes. In addition to this we have now achieved the much coveted TripAdvisor 'Certificate of Excellence' award which makes us very happy and proud indeed and is a reward for our efforts to correct previous problems which we promised to do and did because as we pledged in the reviews replies section and after a thorough inspection we have recently renewed the fridge freezer, the Samsung washing machine has been repaired with the correct Samsung spare part and it worked perfectly for 2 weeks during our stay, we have also purchased 3 new white sunloungers (they only had 3!) the others are still fine though plus the ceiling fan is repair...GREAT NEWS.......... Our apartment has met all the strict requirements of the local licensing authority in Almería and is now full licensed for rental purposes. In addition to this we have now achieved the much coveted TripAdvisor 'Certificate of Excellence' award which makes us very happy and proud indeed and is a reward for our efforts to correct previous problems which we promised to do and did because as we pledged in the reviews replies section and after a thorough inspection we have recently renewed the fridge freezer, the Samsung washing machine has been repaired with the correct Samsung spare part and it worked perfectly for 2 weeks during our stay, we have also purchased 3 new white sunloungers (they only had 3!) the others are still fine though plus the ceiling fan is repaired and a new shower hose and shower head is fitted. We also renewed the curtains and cushions in the lounge and fitted new aircon in the bedroom. There is also a new first aid kit and fire extinguisher. The apartment is now in great condition after our inspection visit and in future our guests will be met on arrival and departure by our English and Spanish speaking agent who now handles management of the rentals on our behalf plus we are always available by phone or email for any queries or problems if you encounter any! There is a folder too in the apartment detailing how everything works ie. TV, WIFI, Washing machine, cooker, aircon etc. and literature regarding some local attractions. We have worked hard to help you to enjoy your stay at our apartment and hope you have a lovely time and visit us again in future as quite a few guests do. We will of course supply all our contact details to you when you confirm your booking. Kind regards, Dave and Polly. The apartment is a lovely well maintained one bed roomed air conditioned penthouse (attico) just 11 years old. WITH FREE WI-FI BROADBAND FITTED PLUS WIRELESS MOUSE AND KEYBOARD FOR SURFING THE NET OR EMAILING.

A spiral staircase leads to a large roof terrace with lovely views of the Mediterranean Ocean which is just five minutes walk down to the beach and offers extensive views of the Sierra Nevada mountains range to the rear of the apartment. The secure complex has a lovely pool and a lawned pool area with a childs learner pool in beautiful laid out gardens. It is very tranquil and peaceful with many Spanish residents also living in the apartments. it is approximately just 350 yards to the lovely promenade and takes just five minutes to reach on foot from the apartments rear entrance.
