Overview

About the property

1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, 1 bathroom 1WC, open plan kitchen\dining area

2016 I had taken the property off the rental market for a couple of years as I had planned to sell due to health reasons, but we are able to continue to rent it for the next year or so. This luxury apt has a swimming pool, children’s play area, barbeque and all year round security. We have for holiday rentals, a beautifully furnished two bedroom apartment with views overlooking both the pool and sea. The large open plan kitchen\living and dining area lends itself to every type of family holiday. Apart from yourself, your bikini and sun tan oil, everything you need for a comfortable stay can be found in the Ravda Residence apartment. We have even installed a dishwasher and a washing machine for your sole use.

The living room has two wonderful leather sofas for you to recline on whilst listening to your favourite sounds on the hi-fi whilst having the last night cap. The three seater sofa converts into a double bed.

A lovely dining table and chairs are situated by one of the windows in the living room with a view to the sea.

The double bedroom overlooks the pool, both bedrooms have beautiful bedding along with furnishings to compliment

Guest Book & Comments Book: Please find placed on the coffee table our Guest Book where I have hopefully provided you with as much information on the various attractions of Sunny Beach, Nessebar, Bulgaria itself. Its also where you find the do's and don’ts of the Ravda Residence, if there is any? So please do take the first few minutes after unpacking to sit down with a cool drink and read the Guest Book. There is also a Guest Comments book which we would like you to complete on your departure, all comments good or bad welcomed. Please also make note of any minor repairs which need attention and the maid will check the book on a regular basis.

The apartment has an inventory list which is checked weekly, so please record any breakages in the Comments book at the back, as this saves any misunderstanding.

Flights: Flights are direct to Bourgas which is approximately 20 minutes away from the apartment. Flights depart from various airports throughout the United Kingdom. Flights have dropped in price this year, 2016 as more airlines are now flying into Bourgas.I am more than happy to spend an hour or so on the net helping you to find flights if you would like me to, I have found a flight for us that the travel agent could not! Our friends, either Elena or Nicolli are taxi drivers and will meet you at the airport to take you to the apartment. We have provided the names and numbers of our taxi drivers in the guest book.

Entertainment: Our apt is in a quiet complex overlooking the beach which is also nice and peaceful, as one guest said, much better than the holiday package to Sunny Beach. We have noticed the prices in Sunny Beach have risen sharply this year, whereas Ravda and most of Old and New Nessebar still give good Bulgarian money for value.

The residents of our complex all agree as well as previous guests, this is a stunning part of Bulgaria and we are very lucky to own property in such a stunning location. We also have a lovely hotel next door where you can eat and drink, again at good value. There are so many areas of this part of the world to explore, whether it be the many local areas with their various restaurants, many with live entertainment at night, or if you take one of the trips advertised on various boards scattered around the place.

About Sue Winger

Mac and I have now retired, as well as renting out the apt in Bulgaria for a number of years, we had a hire boat business here in the UK which we ran for 10 years. Sadly Mac had a brain aneurism in March this year 2016, thankfully he has recovered well but I felt stress was a big issue and so decided the boat business had to go, as it is a stressful and very expensive business to run. I intended to sell the apt but prices for property have fallen, so I have put it back on the rental market for people to enjoy for a while longer, as Bulgaria itself is becoming more and more popular as it is still fantastic value for money. Do come and stay at the Ravda Residence and have a great time.

Sue Winger purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Sue Winger chose Bulgaria

This apt is on the ground level so no mobility issues, if you have children, they can play in the children's play area and you can keep your eye on them from the balcony. It is close for shops, bars restaurants, bus services to Old Nessebar and Sunny Beach. The apt itself is directly above the beach and the complex is small, so a peaceful holiday is ensured.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful location away from all the noise of Sunny Beach but close enough to go and enjoy the night life it has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was much admired by our guests from last summer, which can be verified by reading the actual book yourself. Many of our guests left the comment, 'we would love to come back, so don't miss out, Bulgaria is a lovely place, do come. We have already had many enquiries for this year and took our first booking in December 05.

For those of you intending to buy a property here in Bulgaria, I have produced a booklet which will save you time an money as I have supplied the names of all the people I used from Lawyers to real estate agents etc, everyone of those names cost money for me to obtain, so although you are not getting this free, £20 to you, it is full of experiences and tips, follow me and you wont go wrong. If you wish to order a copy of this document please supply me with your name and address to my email address

but not through the Holiday Rental site please. This has been well received by the buyers of this book

Fabulous Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fab holiday August 2010 at Sue & Mac's. The location of the apartments were great for us - about 20 minutes walk (with a 6 year old) to Ravda and in the other direction about the same to Nessebar. As this location is where many Bulgarian's take their holidays the local restaurant prices are VERY cheap. The beach is just at the back of the apartment and not too busy at all but with a lovely beach bar for basic refreshments. We divided our evenings between near the apartments, Ravda and mainly Old Nessebar - a gorgeous place and at least a must visit only once if you can't make more. We mainly visited places on the bus and at only 1 Lev to most locations it was easy to go further afield. We also visited Bourgas centre which is a worthwile day out. The apartment itself is a good size and a lovely balcony position overlooking the children's play area and bbq. I would definitely recommend this apartment and area for a fab and cheap holiday. Thanks again Sue & Mac :)

Come and Stay at the Ravda Residence!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Ravda Residence in Bulgaria between 6-13th August 2009. It was everything we wanted it to be. The apartment was very clean, spacious and well equipped. The pool was also very clean and very quiet. The owners left a fantastic manual with details of local taxi's, restaurants and places to visit. The location of the apartment was perfect, right on the beach, a short walk away from Ravda, a quaint village with a funfair and lovely local shops and restaurants. The children loved the fair and bungee! We caught the bus into Nessebar frequently, which was a beautiful port with lovely shops,and restaurants with views over the sea, A meal for 5 people here with 2/3 courses and wine/drinks was £50! We were a short cab ride away (£10) from Sunny Beach, a typical holiday resort with a beautiful beach with water sports and bars/restaurants/clubs. We used a local taxi man recommended by the apartment owners and he picked us up any time we wanted. Great service! Also the owners arranged a lovely lady to pick us up and take us back to the airport. We visited the waterpark, brilliant fun, and very cheap! We had a fabulous holiday in a fabulous place and we will definitely be returning to the Ravda Residence in Bulgaria. Thank you to the owners Sue and Mac for letting us stay xx

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this apartment. the place was clean, spacious and located in a perfect place. The pool was large and clean and the beach was so close! There was a real homely atmosphere and all around the place was lovely and the food was good virtually, everywhere we ate.

Our 2 boys had a great time also and we came back feeling relaxed and refreshed......and looking forward to next year!

Car: not necessary

From the main road in front of the apartment turn left and a twenty minute walk will take you to the area of Ravda itself. Here you will find a lovely little collection of bars \ restaurants, shops and a funfair. To the right from the apartment, again about twenty minutes walk takes you to Nessebar, old and new. Both are very busy areas. Old Nessebar however is just gorgeous as it is a quaint old town with so many little streets going off in all directions and all filled with goodies to take your leva. This property was featured in March edition 2006 Place in the Sun magazine.

Sunny Beach is a 10 - 15 minute bus ride away and the buses are 5 mins walk from the apt. This is where the majority of the water sports are. Walk along its main promenade but take a swerve off to the left and find the Street of Arts and just enjoy the talented artists.

Other Activities: Aqua Parks, trampolines, bungy jumps for small and big, fun fairs.

Golf: Sliven is about an hour and a half away from Ravda and next year if not the year after a golf course will be completed a lot closer, maybe half an hour away. So golfers keep checking this site.

Bulgaria although a member now of the EU, still uses the lev as their currency, therefore a lot more holiday spend for your English pound. Consider what you will pay per head for hotel accommodation and I bet our apt with flights on top will work out to your advantage. Plus you have a home not just a room. I can now take Credit and Debit card payments
The apt can be booked off season for those people wishing to come to Bulgaria with the intention to buy a property. As we do not wish to encourage those who just want to visit Bulgaria for cheap drink, and we also do not wish to upset our neighbours, we ask that families and professional couples only make enquiries of our lovely apartment.
January 2011, from certain airports RYan Air are doing flights to Plodiv from £59, Plodiv is 4hrs drive to Racda, the taxi fare would be 200 lev which is £87.62p, so a very cheap holiday.
