“It is the location and unbeatable views that sell this apartment.”
However the owners have ignored the comments made in their visitors book for the last 3 years, regarding required updates and improvements:
The 2 bedrooms need daytime privacy blinds, since other residents can walk right past these windows and see inside. We had to keep the curtains closed throughout our stay, giving a gloomy feel to the apartment.
At night the outside security lights shine into both bedrooms, lighting up the rooms! Blackout curtains are required.
The second bedroom en-suite bathroom has only a hand shower attachment, from the bath taps. We were a party of 4 adults so ended up all sharing the first bedroom en-suite shower.
Both bathrooms need updating, with heated towel rails as there is nowhere to dry towels.
The hallway needs a row of coat hooks for outside clothing.
The balcony is the main selling point of this apartment, but the furniture on it is old and falling apart. The table wobbles and is unsteady. The apartment sleeps 4 but there are only 2 sun loungers provided.
For visitors with 2 cars, it needs to be made clear that only a small car will fit in the garage. Fortunately one of our cars was a mini, but a larger car would not be able to open the drivers’ door.
Overall, this apartment is tired and crying out for refurbishment of all rooms and new furniture, if the owners expect repeat bookings.
