About Antonia MacAvoy

We live in New Zealand, me a New Zealander and my wife Spanish. We bought our home in Valencia with a view to one day when retired spending more time in a city we have grown to love.

Antonia MacAvoy purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Antonia MacAvoy chose Valencia City

The immediate appeal was a rooftop duplex in the heart of the old city approx 200 metres from the cathedral. Trinitarios is one of the prettiest streets in Valencia. The property is a quiet refuge from the bustle of Valencia and has all the facilities we wanted in a home. What we enjoy is being able to walk to so many attractions.

What makes this apartment unique

The property apart from being modern with all usual conveniences has a garage within the apartment building. Ideally suited to a small to medium sized car.

We offer complimentary Internet to our guests.

Thanks again! Steve D.

Well located, ideal for exploring the city.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable apartment that met our expectations and gave us a great base to explore Valencia. We had a great welcome by Maria even though neither of us could speak each others language. I think Maria was better equiped than us and we really enjoyed the big bowl of fresh fruit she had left for us.

It is very well located right in the centre of the old town, but you wouldn't realise that from inside as it was very quiet.

We had plenty of space for the four us and made good use of the outside space. The apartment was spacious and well equipped and provided a relaxing place to unwind after some busy sightseeing.

Would certainly recommend the apartment to anyone staying in the area and would look to book it again if we return to Valencia.

We also found it really easy to contact Antonia who answered all our questions very quickly - Thank you.

Great location and spacious for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The two levels in this clean home allowed our two teenage daughters a place to hang out. The two bathrooms were a relief and we used the kitchen daily. It was very well equipped. There are no views per say from inside the house as the windows are frosted but there is plenty of light. Plus, there are two terraces upon which you can enjoy the views. Though in the middle of it all, this home is very quiet.

Communication with the owner Antonia was superb from the very beginning. Fluent in English and Spanish she quickly answered all of my questions while we were planning our trip.

The caretaker Maria helped us find a great Spanish teacher for our daughters and weekly shared cool events for us that were happening around town. Because of Maria our three weeks in Valencia were packed full of fun.

We would not hesitate to recommend this home and hope to return to it on our next trip to Valencia.

Experience the city like a local

  • 5 of 5

This is the third apartment we have rented in Valencia in the last few years and by far the best in every possible way. Located in a quiet street on the edge of the old town, it is just steps from the action but free of any street noise. The apartment is exactly as advertised and customer service from the owner and her on site representative is fast and attentive. It is absolutely wonderful to take a 10-minute early morning walk through the narrow streets and squares to the beautiful central market, to pick up a supply of ham, cheeses and fruit.....especially the oranges and strawberries that both look and taste amazing. While the kitchen is extremely well equipped, there are literally hundreds of restaurants and bars within walking distance: too many great spots to list. But if you, like us, get excited by the incredible array of seafood at the market, I highly recommend the nearby L'Odisea, where you get to choose your own fish/shellfish from a display, then the chef prepares it for you. Oh and don't miss a trip to Lake Albufera! Thanks Antonia and Maria for a great vacation.

Large Comfortable Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment is very well appointed and very roomy, and very comfortable

Maria the apartment manager is a delight and very helpful

Its situated in the Historic quarter of town and perfectly placed for restaurants bars and sightseeing

Also just around the corner from the Central park

The only reason I can't offer a 5 Star review is that there are not enough windows with any outlooks, particularly in the Sitting room so a tad claustrophobic for our taste

Excellent stay loved the apartment , fantastic location and loved Valencia

  • 5 of 5

On arrival met with Maria the housekeeper who was fantastic in showing us around the property even with our limited Spanish.Everything was very clean and bright. We loved the roof terrace and found the apartment very spacious for our party of five. We would recommend to anyone the apartment and if we visit Valencia again we would return.

Nice and convenient place!

  • 4 of 5

It was our first visit to Valencia, and we enjoyed our stay very much.

Downtown Valencia is a very nice and cozy place and Antonia's apartment was without doubt a great choice for our visit.

It is located in a very quiet street, yet very near to the heart of historic Valencia and easily accessible by car -as it was very close to a main road. Besides, it has a small private parking space.

Antonia's recommendations of restaurants were really helpful. As Antonia, we could also highly recommend the restaurant right across the apartment!

Very easy and quick communication with Antonia from my first inquiry before booking, all the way through my stay, departure, and deposit refund.

Very clean, and all equipments in perfect working conditions.

Maria del Mar was of great assistant whenever needed. Very friendly and efficient.

Thank you very much!
