Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Hans

Please forgive me for not sending you an email on our return from holiday. I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday and that the apartment was superb. The complex was immaculate and everywhere was very clean. We have stayed in Luz many times but we all agreed that your apartment was the best! We hope that it won't be long before we can stay with you again.

Best wishes

Top class

  • 4 of 5

First class apartment in our favourite resort well equiped, and allthough there were only two of us it is more than adequate for four.

The only minus point is that it does not have sea views but it is only a short walk to the beach.

Would certainly rent again.

A Perfect Winter Break

  • 5 of 5

An excellent apartment with superb facilities in a delightful location. South facing terrace makes sitting outside even in winter very comfortable. The apartment is very well equipped for those who enjoy cooking for themselves and is only a short distance from well stocked supermarkets. The gym and the indoor swimming are perfect for keeping fit in the colder months and there are plenty of opportunities for scenic walks. Very highly recommended.

Beautiful spacious and clean Well located property

  • 5 of 5

Superb property !!!

Its our 3rd time and we are booked to return 2017 ! Spacious and well equipped ideal family holiday apartment. Clean modern and perfect location. Overlooking the pool, however it is still quiet and peaceful to sit and watch from the balcony. There is an adult pool at the back of the apartment and indoor pool. I cant express how brilliant this place is.

The restaurant is excellent and very child friendly. There is also a bar round the pool serving food, drinks and ice creams!!!

The complex is 5 minutes from the beach and local bars and restaurants.

It has been a pleasure dealing with the owner who has gone above and beyond to make our holidays comfortable, relaxing, easy and most of all memorable !

Thank you very much Hans and Anna-Maria :)

We look forward to returning in May
