Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I have just returned from a week in Luz where we stayed in this apartment in St. James. This is a very spacious apartment in a wonderful location. The apartment is very clean with everything you could need for a short or long stay. It is very close to the center of Luz with its beautiful beach and restaurants. There are two large pools, one for adults and one for children. There are fantastic views from the spacious balcony which looks onto the pool. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is plenty of car parking spaces at the entrance to the apartment right beside the lift/stairs to the apartment. We would definitely try to rent this apartment the next time we return to Luz.

A lovely apartment with great facilities in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

I am familiar with these apartments and this one did not disappoint. Very spacious and excellent views. A few little problems which were very soon ironed out by the property management company. I would like to return one day but it is not easy to get booked into this very popular accommodation. Don't delay booking if you want to stay there!!

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment before and as usual it was fantastic. It is well kitted out with everything you need. WiFi is good and the swimming pools are great. Luz is a lovely town with plenty of good restaurants.

All in all, it is excellent value and a perfect place to stay.
