We had an absolutely fantastic time at this beautiful apartment. Barbara & Helmut are amazing hosts who made us feel welcome from the word go and couldn't have improved on anything - this truly was a home from home experience!!
The apartment is located on the first floor of their house, with Barbara and Helmut living downstairs. They were always at hand for any questions or just a chat, or to offer beach provisions like cool bags and parasol - yet they absolutely respected our privacy and we felt like we had the place to yourself. They really got the balance of the perfect hosts spot on!
The apartment itself was more than we could have hoped for, spacious, airy and immaculately clean!
Firstly, there is a good sized living room/second bedroom with a couple of very comfortable sofa beds, perfect for chilling with a book with the balcony doors wide open! There is also a large flat screen TV if the beautiful island isn't enough to keep you entertained...
There is everything needed for breakfast/light meals - fridge (which held a few lovely surprises throughout out stay!), microwave, egg boiler, toaster, kettle, coffee percolator and cafetiere... (no cooking facilities but definitely not required!).
Three large drawers are equipped with all your mealtime needs: lots of cutlery, plates, bowls, eggcups, mugs as well as wine/beer glasses, tumblers, scissors, can opener... even aluminium foil for packed lunches!
Any used dishes were left on a tray, ready to be collected and washed up by our hosts every morning!!
There is a large build-in wardrobe with lots of hangers as well as iron/ironing board and scales to ensure you don't go over your luggage allowance - brilliant idea!
The balcony overlooking the private pool holds table and two chairs - perfect for sitting out over a glass of wine at night! Unfortunately we didn't get to use the pool this time although the sun loungers were prepped for us every morning - we will make up for this next time!
The ensuite bathroom is spotlessly clean with two sinks, toilet, bidet and bathtub with overhead shower. There are masses of fluffy bath sheets, handtowels and flannels which seemed to be restocked with fresh ones on a daily basis, as well as a pile of beach towels of equally great quality to take with you on your daily trips to pool or beach.
The bathroom is also equipped with every conceivable type of toiletry you might need - hand soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner as well as a large draw full of 'emergency provisions' such as wet wipes, cotton buds, suncream, aftersun, even nail varnish remover!!
Finally, the main bedroom has a very comfortable double bed and another huge build in wardrobe. The wooden shutters on the window keep the heat out during the day and allow a nice breeze during the night. And if you have trouble sleeping, there is another flat screen TV for your nighttime viewing too!
