About the property

Penthouse apartment in Isla Canela, Costa de la Luz, Spain - Peaceful Location only 100m From Beach

This distinctive penthouse apartment by the beach, is one of only 4 in this small development of 88 properties. It is well-suited to almost any kind of holiday. The glorious, uncrowded beaches are perfect for families, and the area is very safe for bathing. Its peaceful and idyllic location complete with stunning beaches make it a perfect hideaway, just the spot to float away all the cares of the world. Golfers have access to the 18 hole, par 72 Isla Canela course about 5 minutes' drive away, while the courses of Huelva and the Eastern Algarve are less than hour away. At the same time its proximity to cultural hotspots like Seville make it an ideal centre for touring and sight seeing, and the vast sandy beaches are fantastic for kids as well as sunbathers. Book a jeep safari in the marina to take you through the nearby Donana National Park, or a boat ride up the Guadiana. The apartment has good sized living space, stunning sea views, and the large terrace has BBQ and jacuzzi. Free Wifi

About Pauline

Hello. I'm Pauline and I currently live in Essex with my partner.

We have owned the apartment in Isla Canela for about 8 years, and absolutely love the place, as I'm sure you will too.

We regard our tenants as guests, even though, sadly, we never meet them, and have done our best to include everything you might need to ensure your holiday is stress-free.

Recent additions have been a small garden on the terrace with a lemon tree, and free wifi. We also now have a log-burning stove for those evenings when it gets a bit cooler.

There has been a lot of concern recently regarding scams. If you are unsure, then check me out on Linkedin, Facebook, my own websites and various other sites, sometimes with my pen-name Paula K. Randall

Pauline purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Pauline chose Costa de la Luz - Huelva

We love the area for its peacefulness and it's wide, golden sandy beaches.

Although you're within easy walking distance of bars and restaurants (and a couple of supermarkets) the actual location of the penthouse is very quiet.

It's lovely having such a large terrace, and the almost 360 degree views from it take one's breath away.

As well as the immediate area there is also a lovely fishing village with great bars and restaurants about fifteen minutes' walk away, and the nearby town of Ayamonte has a large selection of boutique type shops and good restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

Until you've stayed in a penthouse it's hard to explain how much more you'll get. Basically, most rooms are bigger than in the standard apartments, and every room has an opening window with views of some sort. The feeling of space and light is wonderful.

The property is laid out for convenience, and instead of cluttering up the sitting-room with a dining table and chairs we have built on an extra dining-room by glazing in part of the terrace. These 'glass curtains' all fold back if you want to eat outside, but open or closed this room affords good views of the beach and sea.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“This stunning apartment is so spacious and very well equipped. I have never stayed in self catering accommodation which has everything to hand that I have at home. The pool was not open at the time of our stay (out of season) but the enormous terrace and the jacuzzi more than made up for that. We really didn't need to leave the property, as everything was there for us, including a BBQ, hotplate, outside dining table and chairs, loungers and even kids toys. And one last thing......the view is to die for. We will definitely be returning.”

Natalie, May 2011

"We've stayed in many places calling themselves luxury but trust me, this is the only one deserving of the name. Idyllic area, idyllic apartment. This was our Golden Wedding treat and it couldn't have been better. Don't come if you want nightclubs, noise and Brits abroad. Come if you want to walk, cycle, swim, lie on the beach or enjoy a late meal in the fabulous fish restaurants."

Pat and Ted, Truro, May 2012.

Fantastic apartment, great beach, brilliant place.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is situated in a gated community so is very safe and secure. The exterior, including the pool and garden areas, are well-maintained and tended to on a daily basis. Inside, the apartment is light and spacious and very well-equipped. The master bedroom having a king size bed is a huge bonus, as is the air-conditioning in each room. The real luxury of this apartment though is the terrace. It is so large, overlooks the pool and the beach and is just fantastic to come back to after a few hours down at the pool or beach. When we stayed in July, the temperatures were in the 30's, and being able to come up to the terrace and enjoy the sea breeze during the hot afternoons was a real pleasure. As was eating breakfast and lunch outside. The children could come back and watch a DVD, or play games to keep out of the hot sun but we could still enjoy it. We enjoyed eating out in local restaurants as well as having a BBQ on the terrace. The Jacuzzi was great fun too. A short walk away is the fantastic sandy beach, which the children loved. All in all, a great place to stay. There is really nothing negative I can say about this place, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday there and would definitely go again. The owner, Pauline, was helpful and friendly and responded quickly to all queries. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: It's so gratifying to know that people have enjoyed their holiday in our apartment. We do try to be as helpful as possible, and because it's our second home as well we've made considerable efforts to ensure that it's equipped with everything you might need.

Notes on accommodation: The rooms are comfortably furnished, with two large sofas and a range of small tables and lamps in the lounge. Each bedroom has large built-in wardrobes, with drawers inside. There is a good range of books and DVDs, free WIFI and an i-pod docking station. All rooms have air-conditioning and/or central heating. The apartment is suitable for children, and there are lifts to the apartment making it accessible to people with reduced mobility. If a high chair is needed, please contact me in advance. The apartment is strictly non-smoking, and we regret that is is not suitable for pets. The terrace is extremely large and has additional dining areas, either in the sun or shade, whichever you prefer. As well as sunbeds there are also some lightweight folding chairs which you can take to the beach, and in the large box in the terrace cupboard there are bats, balls, tennis raquets and a beach umbrella. There is a BBQ on the terrace as well as an electric hotplate which can be used outside. Outside: There is a very large terrace of over 200sq.m, complete with both covered and open areas and a range of raised flower beds. One bed even incorporates a lemon tree! On the terrace is a BBQ and jacuzzi, and a good range of terrace furniture. The development has 2 shared pools including one for children, and 2 paddle tennis courts. The apartments are also surrounded by pretty gardens, and immediately in front of the development is a small formal park leading to the beach. It is approximately 100m to the beach. Please note that, due to Spanish law which states that a lifeguard must be in attendance at pools over a certain size, the pool is only available from June to mid-September. However the hotel next door has a lovely pool, and they are quite relaxed about people using it as long as you buy a drink. The hotels also offer evening entertainment which is available to non-residents. There is a BBQ on the terrace or you may prefer to use the electric plancha which is quicker and cleaner. Utility Room: Washing machine, iron, ironing board, vaccuum cleaner. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen and towels, excluding beach towels, are included and changed weekly. The apartment is cleaned at the beginning and end of your stay. Should you require a midweek clean and/or change of towels, this can be arranged for a small additional fee. Other: This lovely beach apartment in Isla Canela is carefully furnished to be our second home, hence great attention to detail to make your stay enjoyable. Recently we have added a garden in the form of several raised beds and including a lemon tree.
