Overview

About the property

Apartment in Valencia City, Costa Del Azahar, Spain - 15 Minutes From Centre Of Valencia it Is famous for many Restaurants And Bars

We bought this flat in July 2014 as an investment, and as a base to visit my mother who lives close by. It gives us a second home from which to enjoy the many sights and features of this vibrant city (see travel guides) and view here (copy and paste into browser) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt2TGmS1rxw . It needs at least to 'pay its way' so we are making it available for short stay guests. It was previously owned for 11 years by a fastidious couple who had spent 25,000 Euros refurbished the flat to a very high standard. They left most of their furniture which can be seen in the photos. (They retained their statues of the Buddhas!). The lounge was remodeled, and has a large square kitchen with mostly new white goods. It has exquisite parquet flooring, many large wardrobes in each of the three bedrooms. The flat is bright and airy.

About The Owner

Beth and I retired from professional positions three years ago. We live in South West London and enjoy many hobbies, sport, sailing and 6 grandchildren.

My parents came to the UK as refugees from Spain during the Spanish Civil war. Our mother returned to live in her native Valencia as a widow in 2003. Having property in Valencia and a holiday home in nearby Cullera (see alternative posting on Owners Direct webpage), we are able to visit her easily and enjoy the delights of this fascinating city and enjoy the sun drenched seaside.

My two brothers and I have agreed that the flats need to pay their way, so we are offering to share them with responsible tenants from the UK.

We hope they give you as much pleasure as they have us and our families.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2014

Why The Owner chose Extra murs

We bought the flat for a number of reasons. Primarily as an investment, but to be near my mother when we visit her. We hope to cover costs and a little more. Short term letting allows us and our children and grandchildren to use it when vacant. It appealed to us as it was by far the best of the many we viewed with its stunning interior and comfort it affords.

It is very handy for the city centre, and the many amazing sites it has.

Perfect apartment for a city break

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end of the booking it has been a very smooth process. Excellent communication from Luis at all times. The apartment is perfect, spacious, clean and a good location too.

So nice to have shampoo and shower gel etc for us to use in the apartment so we didnt need to take our own although we did take some things with us which we have left behind for others to use such as suntan lotion.

It takes about half hour to get to the airport via the metro, very easy journey. 17 minute walk to the Market (we timed it) which is a good starting point for the old town - it is open from 8 am until 2.30 pm.

We got lost on arrival coming out of Angel Guimera station so more specific directions would have been handy but we found it after quite a walk. Plus the front door is stiff, as explained in the Tenants Notes, so persevere because we thought we couldn't get in.

Angel Guimera station is quite large and there are several exits. Finding the correct exit will make your walk to the apartment much easier. Ask Luis for the exact name of the exit as I can't remember it but I know you have to walk through one section of the station to another part of it and along a different platform before exiting.

The metro takes you to the beach which is huge and has s selection of umbrellas, sun loungers or just miles and miles of sand to sit on. We dined in the Marina Beach club which wasn't expensive.

The apartment feels like home and has everything you would expect in your own home such as iron, hairdryer, airer, toaster, DVD etc etc. Beds were comfy and clean.

The Danish supermarket is brilliant and Luis is correct in saying buy the ugly oranges they give so much juice.

Thank you Luis for renting out your lovely apartment.

Owner's Response: Hi Helen, Thank you for the excellent review and for your helpful comments. I also have now just learnt which exit to use at Angel Gimera station after many years of 'failures'. It is found if you walk back from the direction of travel. This is just 200 yds from Abastos civic centre and 100 yds from the front door. It is now in the July version of the Tenant's Guide! Thanks also for the information on the loungers and shades on the beach and using the metro, which I will also emphasise in the Guide. Valencia has a huge amount to offer. One visit is never enough as we find when we go exploring ourselves. You are more than welcome anytime. Best wishes Luis Castillo

Perfect accommodation in a beautiful city

  • 5 of 5

A very modern, beautifully clean, 3 double bedroom, luxury apartment that was all we wished for. Would highly recommend to everyone who appreciates a very high standard of accommodation and ideally placed for trips into Valencia as well as local restaurants and shops.

Lovely apartment with good utilities and overall great location

  • 5 of 5

This 3 bedroom apartment was perfect for 2 couples and one child. The master bedroom is spacious and has an en-suite which was great.

Fully equipped kitchen including a juicer, which was brilliant when you could buy lovely fresh oranges from the nearby supermarkets.

Nice cafes nearby to the apartment and generally a good location for wanting to walk around the city as it didn't seem too far from any particular place.

Easy to get taxi from outside the apartment to the beach. One thing to note, Taxi's only take 4 passengers including children, so there are no big taxi's for 6-7 people.

Overall an amazing holiday for us all and we got lucky with the lovely weather too.

Luis, the restaurant recommendations were really good and appreciated. Thanks for your help and quick return of our deposit.

Owner's Response: Hi Priya Thank you for such a full and comprehensive 5* review. It concurs with what 34 others have also reported. Very pleased the baby cot worked out too. We bought another for our second property in nearby Cullera which has also proved valuable. Hope to see you all again one day? Luis

Nice place, good location

  • 4 of 5

Luis, the owner was very easy to communicate with. He responded almost immediately and was very patient in answering our question. The house was clean and had everything you need. It was just as on the pictures. It was very clean and spacious for our party of 6. There are enough seating in the living room.

There are 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms (1 master bedroom with 1 double bed, 1 bedroom with 1 double beds and 1 bedroom with 2 single beds). The single beds were very comfortable but according to others in our party the double beds were somewhat small. It was ok for us but for big persons it might be tight. The location is very convenient with a lot of busses closeby and we felt very safe in the neighborhood, also at night time. The nice Plaza de la Reina is only a few busstops away. We bought a 3 day pass in a Tabacco shop for eur 11.00 which was valid on all busses and metro. It was a great plus and we used it a lot!

Valencia is a very nice and beautiful city with nice people and a lot of good places to eat. We love the city of Valencia and enjoyed our time and will certainly visit Valencia again and will sure stay at Luigi's place if available. I will certainly recommend this house.

Tip for a great Italian restaurant: La pappardelle very close to Plaza de la Reine. The food was amazing with nice friendely staff and great delicious 3 course menus for only Eur 12,99!! If you love Italian food you should try this restaurant.

Owner's Response: Dear Henna Thank you for your excellent review. I'm sorry the new standard double beds are a bit small for tall people. It sounds as though you made good use of your time taking busses and finding and recommending an Italian restaurant. Valencia is a wonderful city and plenty more to see next time when you are more than welcome. Luis

Amazing apartment,

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a very comfortable and spotless apartment. The contact with the owner Luis prior to our stay was first class and all questions were answered almost immediately.

The area surrounding the apartment was lovely and the walk to the old town in a leisurely stroll took around 15 mins.

Should we return to Valencia ( there are more cities on our list to visit first!)we would definitely rent this apartment again.

Owner's Response: Hi Sandra and family, Delighted the flat and Valencia met your expectations and thanks for your generous comments. I'll pass these on to Jacqueline who is terribly proud of her efforts. Guest satisfaction is so very important and yours follows the pattern of thirty previous guests. You are, of course most welcome anytime. Valencia cannot be done justice in just a few days. We've been coming for years and usually discover something new. Best wishes Luis and Beth
