"Hi Pauline. Having returned to your apartment for a second time, it has not lost it`s magic - love the outdoor space and home comforts, free wi fi was really useful. Hope to return soon. You are welcome to use these comments on your website."“Thank you, we had a super holiday. The weather was just perfect, and your apartment has the wow factor.
Mr A Stoddart, June 2010
The setting was idyllic and such a fabulous balcony, we were amazed by the amount of room. The breeze was very welcome, and the views were superb. I feel very sad that we have returned to such grey skies and grim weather.
We met Bart briefly, but did not need to contact him again. The apartment was clean, and with your clear instructions everything was very easy to use, open and follow. It was a good idea to create the dining area: I am sure you will find that particularly useful. We enjoyed evening meals in the area, although lived on cold meats, cheeses and salad. I did buy the pork escallops and cooked those on your griddle which was excellent. “
From Mrs. L. Middleton, August 2008
“Returned home last night. We have had an absolutely fantastic time and loved Isla Canela & Ayamonte. Both quality places and none of the usual Brits Abroad types.
Your apartment is superb and I thank you for letting us stay - we would learn Spanish & up sticks tomorrow if we could.
Thanks also to Bart and his office who were courteous and helpful especially when our son contracted an ear infection. They advised where to go for medical attention in Ayamonte (phrase book saw us through).
Only saw Punta Del Moral briefly so missed out on the fish restaurants there (also children & father in law are fussy eaters). We enjoyed Bella Napoli, Outback and Annie's opposite the Barcelo.
Never ate in apart from breakfast & occasional lunch - wallet, liver and scales are in recovery!
Spa was great for midnight star gazing with a glass of Cava.
Loved the train, we called him Puffing Billy. Good for some (quiet) singing & banter with the Spanish on the way home.
To summarize - 11 out of 10.
Once again sincere thanks for all your help, advice and information. The Moral restaurants will wait because WE WILL RETURN!

“Gary & I have just returned from Spain and I wanted to drop you a quick note to say what a wonderful time we had in your apartment. You have found a real gem, both in the resort and apartment and we were really very comfortable. We had fantastic weather and were able to make a great deal of use of the terrrace. Our only disappointment was that the swimming pool was closed all week.
We thought the area was lovely and I am sure we'll be back in the not too distant future.
Thanks again for the use of your apartment.”
Mrs. J. Nicholson, April 2008
Sorry I've taken so long to get back to you - one of the problems with going on holiday is the amount of emails to deal with afterwards!!
The apartment was great, thanks - the girls especially were very impressed! I think we were extremely lucky with the weather - we all got slightly burned on the first day, but came back bronzed and relaxed. We quickly found the Sonrisa bar, which was great – one of our daughters sang on a couple of occasions, and on Sunday, when we were relaxing in the sun on the beach, listening to their music and drinking sangria, we had texts from home to say it was snowing, which made it even better!
Have you thought of using a visitors book in the apartment? It would be useful to know good restaurants, etc., that other visitors have found - or just tips about places to go (or not!) and the best times to go there. All in all, we had just what we needed; a very relaxed break, with good weather and lovely surroundings.
Many thanks - we will certainly be recommending the apartment to friends!!
Mrs. B. Davies, April 2008
“We thought that your apartment was lovely. I don't know how busy it would be in the peak season, but it was nice for us not having too many people about, not any problems getting a meal or things like that. In the flat itself, I don't think there is any criticism really. Only observations - no plastic cups for the beach, as stated in the handout (not a problem for us, we carried little bottles of water anyway, plus we weren't sitting all day on the beach), also no oven shelf, except the enamel one on the oven base.
We enjoyed touring about in the car. We went along the coast in both directions exploring different places. We loved Seville. We are all golfers, although didn't golf on this holiday, so we were exploring the different courses in the area. We found the new one that Jack Nicklaus has designed, Monte Rei, at a membership cost of 70,000 euros for 25 years, it's a little out of our league! (we're spoilt for choice in Scotland!) However, it is a beautiful place to visit, and very impressive furnishings.
We enjoyed our walk to the cafe for coffee and cake! And our evening in Bart's beach bar on the Saturday with the live music was fun. I also liked the fact that even the house plonk was really good. Not like here, where it is usually awful.
Something took a liking to me, and I am still suffering from bites! Don't know what either, they seemed to strike during the day. I was using repellant at night.
The only place we weren't keen on that we visited was Faro. We didn't think that it was particularly interesting, or maybe we were in the wrong part. The shops were also disappointing.
We would certainly recommend your apartment to others, and if we were to come back to your area, we would contact you. Hope this is of help.Many thanks again”
