About Helen Potgieter

A very special family villa that we hope will give you a wonderful holiday to remember and hopefully come back to as often as possible. We love the area and are always very sad to leave. A very relaxing home, easy to manage and enjoy. Simplicity is our motto and nothing is too fussy.

Helen Potgieter purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Helen Potgieter chose Roquetas area

To provide a family villa in a sunny and relaxing location to be used for many years to come.

Enjoy the golfing and the marinas as well as the long strolls along the beach.

Lovely to be in Spain and can travel to many cities like Granada or Malaga as a change.

Very good weather even thru the winter.

What makes this apartment unique

Large outdoor area and ground floor convenience.

Lovely views and great in the early morning and the lovely warm evenings.

Nature reserve makes it very tranquil but still very close to marinas with all their facilities.

Clean & comfortable

  • 3 of 5

Property was in a lovely complex. Apartment was clean & had everything we needed. It could do with a wee bit of modernising - installation of air con would be great. Around 10 min walk to the beach & large promenade area. 15 mins to the main marina area where the majority of bars & resturants are. Supermarket around 10 mins walk. Pool area in complex clean & very well maintained. We did have a problem with the wifi & tv but the agents were very quick to respond to our queries to try to rectify the issue. Would definitely return to this area & property.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately tenants leave aircon on all day and night and cause excessive electricity costs . For this reason aircons are not fitted in most properties. Ceiling fans are fitted in all rooms and are more effective. Thank you for the good review, we try our best to provide a good stay for all our tenants The property is very well placed and all facilities are in excellent condition, including a children's playground with facilities for climbing etc.

Excellent, Clean Well Located

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd year returning to the apartment with 2 young boys and my mother in law and would highly recommend it for families, and couples.

The Apartment was very clean, fully furnished and is kitted out with everything you needed to enjoy your holiday.

Correspondence with the owner prior to going over was excellent and we were met by the owner's onsite agents who showed us around the apartment, and offered their services if we had any issues. The apartment was very spacious with a large patio which got the sun in the afternoon, the apartments within the complex are privately owned and the majority of the residents live there, a lovely on site pool with lifeguards, a play area for children and well maintained grounds.

Location is ideal for the local beaches all within walking distance though we drove most days due to the children and all the beach toys etc.

The nearest Tapas bar is within a minute walk turn right out of gate, A 10 minute walk will bring you to the numerous, wonderful Tapas bars and Restaurants Almerimar has to offer, tapas is free with a beer, wine or other alcoholic and the choice is vast.

A car is recommended to take full advantage of the unspoilt area, it is about a 40 minute drive from Almeria Airport and two hours from Malaga which we flew into the previous year.

There is a Mercadona Supermarket within a 2 minute drive and you have a shopping complex with a large Carrefour within a 10 minute drive, you will also find Go Karts there

We visited the beaches of Roquetas de Mar and also went to the water park which at the height of the season was empty so no queues, another visit for adults and kids is the Oasys Mini Hollywood film studios, and zoo again empty and a good day out for all

Have recommended this apartment to friends and work colleagues, and would return in the future

Property is as described

Owner's Response: The said tenants wrote very accusing e mails saying that the apartment was filthy and that they could not sit on the sofa bed. However they were quite happy to stay on for a further two weeks but demanded their money back. I have reported this to Action Fraud in the UK as I believe that they may have done this before in an attempt to gain a free holiday which is fraudulent. I have many people who stay year after year and thank me very kindly The tenants are being investigated for fraud as they were offered alternative accomodation but refused to take it.
