About the Owner

My husband and i had always had a dream to buy an apartment in Spain.We visited many parts of Spain before we made our choice in Costa De le Luz.We loved it because it was unspoilt and beautiful and close to the Algarve as well. Also we have several friends who bought there. We run a small family business and had hoped we would be retired now and spending lots of time in Spain. Unfortunatly we are still working and not spending as much time as we would like there yet ! We rent it obviously to help us with the upkeep and hope that our clients will like our apartment and respect that we have worked hard to buy and furnish it to the highest standard and therefore will look after it as we do when there. Luckily we have never had a problem in that respect and we have had some lovely clients , some returning again and again. It makes us happy to know people have enjoyed staying in the lovely area in our apartment and we always are at the end of the phone to guide them through any problems they may have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good afternoon Peggy,

Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment. We had 10 nights there in June 2013

The apartment was of a very high standard but extremely comfortable with everything needed for a good holiday. It was the first time we had been self catering and would do so again if it was as good as our experience with you.The view from the balcony was brilliant and we had lots of meals sat there watching the fishing boats pass by. Having the two bathrooms made life so much easier as our party ranged in age from 80yrs to 19yrs.

You made everything so easy and answered all our queries quickly. I would highly recomend your apartment and we will be back again.

kind regards

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, well equipped, modern and clean. It was in a great location a few minutes away from the local beach. The communal swimming pool was great and wasn't busy at all. Lots of great restaurants walking distance from the property. I would recommend day trips to Ayamonte and the beaches of Portugal. 5 out of 5

Super OctoberHoliday

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Peggy for the rental of your lovely apartment for the month of October.

We are a mature couple (70's) who have been annual visitors to Isla Canela for the past 10 years. We have enjoyed self-catering holidays for the past 50 years all over the world, and this is one of the best apartments we have stayed in.

Comfortable, clean and well appointed with excellent views from the balcony of local fishing boat activity, which entertained us whilst dining. Peggy is very helpful and efficient with the bookings, and the local agents also helpful with information and local bookings.

The local area is ideal for golfing (every other day at very reasonable prices); cycling (local hire); and walking (5 km promenade).

As others have mentioned the Huelva Golf Passport which enables one to play 8 different courses, within an hour's drive, at 20 euro's a round. This also enables one to experience different venues in the area.

(I am unable to comment on local transport, as we always drive to Spain and use our own car).

Several local bars are open both at the Marina and Isla Canela Beach even in October,

for a simple meal and evening nogging, and the nearby town of Ayamonte has excellent restaurants open all year round. There are also several beach bars where one can enjoy a relaxing meal or drink.

Ferry trips to Cristina and Villa Real (Portugal)) are both enjoyable and cheap, and the festival market in Villa Real is not to be missed. There is also a hotel close by with evening entertainment, and open to anyone who wishes to attend.

All in all a lovely apartment, with good local facilities and everything for one to have an enjoyable holiday.

We hope return again next year.

Peggy, the description of your apartment was exactly as you read it. everything was perfect, for we were a family of three generations and it felt like home from home, everything was at hand, and wanted for nothing.The property was very clean,and maintained to a high standard.Without any hesitation, i would reccomend your apartment to anyone looking for a really comfortable and relaxed break, whatever the time element. Watching the fishing boats coming and going 24/7 and seeing the people just beyond the balcony angling was facinating,especilly with a glass of wine in hand during the evening. Bars and restuarants nearby were second to none and peoplle were very friendly with no language barriers. We onlly ventured to Ayamonte once, but found it very pleasent. PROPER SPAINISH. All in all, the apartment and all its surroundings are a credit to you Peggy, and thank you for letting it to me and my family, and hopefully we may let it again in the near future. Kind regards, Jim Clark

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well located with uninterupted views of the estuary where local fishing boats pass within 50m or so. We were there in winter but the weather was warm and generally good for walking on massive beaches nearby. The apartment complex was extremely quiet (time of year) which is a plus and the parking for the apartment was secure and convenient with lifts to bring up luggage and shopping. Of course the downside to being out of season was that many restuarants were closed, although there were several good ones within walking distance. The apartments kitchen area is small yet functional and there was plenty of room for another couple (two good bathrooms) who travelled from just across the border in Portugal to stay with us for a couple of nights. We played plenty of golf, there is a passport to golf avaiable where you can play eight different courses in the area for about 20 Euros each!

The nearby town of Ayomonte is very good and the locals very friendly, there was a particulary good parade where the local kids and parents gather in the town square and are bombarded with sweets and other goodies - really very Spanish! The local bus service to Ayomonte is good but a car is useful for exploring a little wider afield.

The owners are very accommodating, the apartment was spotless on arrival and we recommend this apartment for a quiet relaxing winter break.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I have spoken to you since your stay so was aware that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. In fact it was your second stay there, the first being a week in October 2012. It is as you say very quiet there in January and some enjoy the peacefullness of that time of the year as we can still get some very nice weather at that time although it is unpredictable and can also rain a lot in January to! If you ever wish to return, maybe for the more lively summer months we would be delighted to have you again. Thank you again for taking the time to write this review. Kind regards P Bond

Great Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had 10 nights here in June 2013 The apartment is very comfortable and is well equipped as described in the description. It was well maintained and very clean. It was easy to contact the owner and any questions or queries where answered very quiclky. It was the first time we had been self catering and would do so again in this apartment. The view from the balcony was brilliant and we had lots of meals sat there watching the fishing boats pass by. There are a number of very nice bars within walking distance and also a small supermarket within 2 minutes walk selling everything you could need. The best bar was Cayeulantis on the marina front great food along with great views and brilliant staff. The boat to Isla Christina is a must and a bus trip to Ayamonte is also advised. The apartment and area is perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday and would recomend to families and couples.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We chose this part of Spain as we wanted somewhere quiet and basically spanish. We were not disappointed. The area was beautiful with lots of restaurants and places to eat. The apartment was lovely, spacious and in a nice position. It overlooked the bay and the beach was just a short walk away. The pool was great and we were there every afternoon with our grandchildren. It is all enclosed and secure, in fact the whole area seemed very safe. Lots of Spanish families on holiday which was nice. Would definately like to book with Peggy again as she was most helpful and informative. You do need a car though, it would be ashame not to visit the beautiful surrounding scenery.

I think most people would like this property for several reasons.The location is perfect. Very close to the beach, bus stop to Ayamonte,Lovely views. Close proximity to the local bars and restaurants while at the same time it is a quiet apartment block with no noise disturbance at night The apartment is a very comfortable size and can accommodate 6 people very comfortably with 2 full sized bathrooms

Nearest Airport : Faro at 65 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Ayamonty at 4 Kilometres Nearest Golf : at 1 Kilometres Nearest Train : Villa Real at 7 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22 at 5 Kilometres Car: recommended


2 minutes walk to the beautiful sandy uncrowded beaches of Isla Canela. 4 miles stretch with promenade and cycle lane. Beach bars close by offering fresh seafood and some have live music at night. Water sports available on the beach.


Faro airport is a 45 minutes drive away. Seville airport 90 minutes drive.


Ayamonte is a 10 minutes drive away. It is a delightfully lively very Spanish town with gorgeous shops, tapas bars and restaurants. From here take the 10 minute ferry crossing to Villa Real in Portugal renowned for quality bedding, linen and home ware shops and also lovely restaurants and harbor. Visit beautiful Seville only 90 minutes by car or go on day trip by one of the many excursions available.

Take the water boat from the marina close by to Isla Christina and visit their weekly market or go to the lovely natural unspoiled beaches and fish restaurants. You overlook Christina from our balcony. There is also great cycling over there as well as Isla Canela and you can take your hired bikes on the boat with you and make a day of it. Drive to Lepe 20 minutes away and ride beautiful Andaluciun horses on the beach (fast riding) or through the pine forest. (My favorite pastime while there!) The waters behind the apartment are teaming with fish and many people come to this spot to fish. If you like bird watching there are many rare birds here and it is a protected area.

From the Owner

The views from our terrace are second to none and look out over the water to Isla Christina, There is always something to watch with fishing boats passing constantly. I particularly love it when the fishermen come back with their catch and the sea gulls are following the boats. An artists dream. Also people are walking and cycling past all day and it is a lovely place to while away the time with maybe a glass or two of wine in hand. We have recently fitted by folding windows to the terrace which creates either dining alfresco or on colder days , they can be closed and dining on the terrace can still be enjoyed in the warmth of the indoors . A second set of by folding windows from the living room to the terrace can also be opened up to the terrace to create a much larger living area . We have furnished the apartment in high quality modern designer furniture and it really has the wow factor. We love it every time we walk in !
