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.

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

A lovely, well maintained apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this lovely 3 bedroom apartment. The property is spacious and very well maintained. It is a great location from which to explore Valencia, only a few minutes walk from a metro stop.

There is so much to see and do in Valencia from the amazing City of Arts and Science, exploring the historic Old Town, the Bio Parc and the beaches.

We al had a brilliant time.

Loved the apartment

  • 5 of 5

When we were walking up to the apartment we were a bit skeptical as it was not as touristy as we were used to, but going inside we were pleasantly surprised. The apartment has everything from shampoo & hair dryer to salt & pepper & tea & coffee. The washer/dryer took a few days to learn & cannot be overloaded & takes a long time but the owner has user manuals for all appliances so is easy to figure out. We used the parking & loved it as it is in and out entry & fit our mini van. We found it easy to walk to most places & is close to a sport centre if you want to go swimming. The owner Luis has a very easy hand over of keys in the mail, which we appreciated compared to other rentals, just remember the locking mechanism on the door is turning the key 4 x to open & lock. There is a selection of movies in English & 2 wifi spots in the apartment, 1 in the living room for the front of the house & another located in the hall bathroom for the back of the house. Overall, very impressed with our stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Mel, So pleased you had a good stay in our apartment, and thank you for your 5* review (our 24!). It is always a nervous time when approaching a holiday destination for the first time and I agree it is simply a city centre location without any direct tourist attraction. These of course are a 10 minute walk away. Posting keys to future guests (as we live in London) at least a month before hand gives confidence and has never let us down. Our agent nearby can attend entries if required.The front door has a super secure locking system and a steel lining. I upgraded our wifi to an 'all singing all dancing' ADSL superfast 300mb/sec unlimited system for downloading and streaming, as this is what was asked for by our guests. The range extender allows use at both ends of the apartment. You and your party are welcome back at any time. Best wishes, Luis

Impressed, high quality rental property

  • 5 of 5

This spacious flat is tastefully decorated, fully equipped, warm, bright and safe. I have never seen such a sophisticated lock system on a residential front door. The beds were comfortable and there was lots of hot water. The neighbors were considerate concerning noise levels so that was not a problem. The upgraded windows remarkably conceal the noise level of the busy streets below. Suitable for children but if there is a lacking in this rental, it would be the relatively small screen size of the LCD tv so children and night-time home-bodies might prefer a larger screen. I highly recommend this first class property and your stay there will not disappoint. But it will motivate a return visit to Valencia.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr and Mrs B, Thank you for your excellent review. We are pleased you enjoyed your short stay and found the flat as you have reported. Some years ago we bought a 32" TV for our home in London. It was the 'bees knees'. Now this size you might find in a bedroom. Perhaps one day we might upgrade to a larger screen in the flat. You will be welcome to return anytime in future. Best wishes to you both, Luis and Beth

Owner's Response: Friends, Thanks for the generous review. I really appreciate getting such comments but above all, that you and your family enjoyed staying there and found Valencia so fascinating. I'll let our cleaner/manager locally know that her thoroughness is appreciated. She loves the apartment and often has ideas for improvements and with her husband keeps everything running smoothly. You are all very welcome again. Four days isn't enough to appreciate all that Valencia can offer. We go regularly and are always discovering new features. Best wishes Luis and Beth

Excellent property. Well located and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Christmas holiday with our family at this apartment in Valencia. It was very convenient to the metro line and within walking distance of the town centre. The apartment was well equipped and provided us with the perfect base for a great holiday. The owner was helpful and welcoming. I can unreservedly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Hi Derek and family, Thank you for your generous review. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and it suited your needs. Valencia metro covers all the city and having a station nearby is a real boon although it is only a 15 minute walk to the very centre of town and a bus or metro to the beach. We are fortunate in having an excellent local agent/cleaner who loves the flat as we do! She takes pride in having the flat very clean. I'll let her know what you said about her work. You are welcome back any time. Luis and Beth
