About the property

1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2

Chequers is perfectly located a 10 minute walk to the beach 20 minute walk from the main shopping centre but it is far enough from the centre of town so you are never disturbed. Recently refurbished mid 2013 with new furniture inside and out and retiled you can't forget the terrace with is a great sun trap from 8am till 8pm. The terrace is large and is great to sit on in the evening all round perfect place to unwind.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have just had two wonderful weeks at Chequers and will most certainly returning again hopefully later this year. The apartment is clean, comfortable and has a great large balcony which DOES have the sun all day long. It was also nice to have a proper fridge freezer, Sky TV. and washing machine all of which work lovely. Jamie is a very nice person to deal with also, he is polite, friendly, professional and answers any questions quickly. Thank you Jamie for making our stay so pleasant.

A property that fulfilled my needs

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

I was looking for a space to enjoy Gran Canaria. Chequers was the property that provided that opportunity for me. Puerto Rico is a quiet inlet on a coast that hosts a lot of people for holidays. I was looking to get some heat on my body and to be able to walk rather than stay on the beach. Chequers is about 15 minutes walk to the marina/beach. It is also very close to a beautiful hill walk that I really enjoyed. I was on my own- I'm not too sure of the space for three people-yet everyone's need is different. I booked with just a few days notice. It was my first time using HomeAway. I didn't give the home owner much time to arrange for me to get keys yet he managed it and kept assuring me that it would work out.

The restaurants, taxies, busses to and from nearby resorts and tour coaches were plentiful as were the boats. I really enjoyed the week and yes I would go back to Gran Canaria and stay at Chequers. Seán from Ireland

Good exterior, poor interior.

  • 2 of 5
Verified Stay

The property is situated in a nice, quite and sunny location as described in the advert. However, the interior is tired and is in need of refurbishment. The sun terrace furniture is past the use by date, with some items in a dangerous state. Upon arrival, the cleanliness of the facility was far from ideal.

Owner's Response: Unfortunalty I was only told about the furniture by this guest any cleaning issues will be brought up by me with the cleaning company which as stated on the advert must be paid locally however the above guest didn't pay

Overall a good apartment with a lovely sunny terrace.

  • 4 of 5

This property is at the top of a set of apartments so gets sun on the terrace all day long. The short walk to the bars, large supermarket and marina was great although quite a climb back up so definitely for the more energetic although taxis are available at all times. For a few things a small supermarket was just a few steps outside the apartment door. We always hire a car so we can drive to see other places and there was always somewhere to park when we got back. Jamie was very helpful and friendly to deal with, and answered our emails promptly.

Lovely place to stay highly recommended

Stayed before here and the best recommendation they say is to return.

Just the same lovely place and only a short walk to some nice places to eat.

No problem booking either and very nice person to deal with.

Simple, Perfect & ideal

  • 5 of 5

Brilliaint top floor apartment with all you can look for in a self catering apartment! Perfect roof terrace that gets the sub from sunrise to sunset! The complex is delightfully peaceful and well maintained, perfect size pool and the complex. Easy to find from the airport and plenty of parking if your hiring a car like we did!! The walk down to te port is pleasant and reliatically the apartments location is perfect!!

Small nice apartment with a wonderful big balcony.

An apartment in a very quiet area far up in the east part off Puerto Rico straight up from the Marina.There are lots of stairs up to the apartment wich we appreciated so we could get some exercise even during the holliday.The nearest center is the Las Olas,10 min walk where there is a supermarket and lots of restautants and even an automat to get money.We also took a walk over the mountain and down to the coast and followed it to arquenqin. Now we passed three places wih beaches Balito beach Amfi Beach and patalavaca.This time we took the buss home (1.40 Euro).If you are tired in the evening you can take a taxi home from the center of Puerto Rico (4 Euro) and cheaper from Las Olas.In Las Olas there is an Irish pub with live music that was very nice (Durty Nelly).

If you are going to Puerto Rico this is a very good apartment to stay in.I communicated with the owner Jamie Maginness in England (Brighton) via sms e-mail and telephone.
