Ivan purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Ivan chose La Gran Via
There is no property like this, different, with this terrace in the city center, with palm trees, jacuzzi, and the combination of the old decoration hi carvings, cellings, and all the new modern desing makes CASAREINA LUXURY APARTMENT AS A SINGULAR PROPERTY.

Too many faults
On arrival at the apartment we were met by Ivan , who informed us of the many things needing repaired in the flat, the most disappointing of all being the jacuzzi, which was supposed to be repaired by the Wednesday, but this never happened, neither were we contacted with any explanation. This being a major selling point for the apartment, made the stay much less than we expected. The list of items broken or in disrepair include lights not working, wine cooler, TV in room had no Ariel , nor could it move as the bracket was broken, dripping taps, rusty sinks and a bath that had no enamel on the base, thus making it uncomfortable to sit in, water in shower was difficult to control and we had to endure a few cold showers. The tiles in the shower were falling off and were covered with a plastic cover, making it very uncomfortable to stand in. Difficult to find the worst of all the faults, but the blind missing in the bathroom, which stopped the neighbors looking from above was also missing, I prefer not to have an audience whilst I'm on the pan. Our first day of arrival I could not find an iron and on contacting Ivan he informed that the last guests had "lost it", but he would get me one for Thursday, as we arrived on Monday, I informed him that this was not acceptable and he brought an iron the following day. At his arrival at the flat I informed Ivan of the numerous faults, all of which he blamed on previous guests, again I put it to him that this was not our fault and the standard should be much higher, especially as the apartment was described as "Luxurious ". Ivan also informed that he would return later for the iron, but I had to insist that it be left for the duration of our stay, to which he agreed. The flooring on the outside area was not particularly stable and was a trip hazard. When I pointed the faults out to Ivan , he stated that, " you could find faults if looking for them", but I informed him the faults were so numerous they were finding me. Poor attitude from an owner of a potentially beautiful apartment, and he appeared to want sympathy for missing lunch to bring us an iron, I also missed lunch, as I had no clothes ironed to go out. Overall a thoroughly disappointing stay, due to the state of the apartment, but Valencia is a beautiful city, well worth the visit. I do feel we should be entitled to some sort of refund, as the photos of the apartment is not representative of the actual place. Website needs to update before advertising.
Excellent city centre pad
This is an amazing apartment. We have stayed in many cities. Finding a good place to stay is crucial. This one is perfect. It's beautiful, with excellent outside space - so rare in a city. The rooms are very good, and facilities perfect. What makes this all so special is that it is in an ideal place to wander Valencia. We walked or cycled everywhere. Valencia is a great city, and this is the perfect base to see it from.
Really great apartment equipped with everything you need including a brilliant terraced area perfect for those warm nights to play cards and relax! The landlord is great and HUGELY accommodating, willing to do anything to help! If you want a great holiday then go for it' you won't regret it!
We initially had to stay in another apartment run by the owner due to plumbing issues but this was just for one night. casareina was a lovely apartment very modern and the terrace garden was a godsend for my 2 children. It was clean, there were plenty of towels but a bit low on kitchen equipment- no kettle, bread knife, dishwasher, scissors etc there was a microwave tho. The main bathroom was nice and big and so long as you sat in the bath then the shower did not flood the bathroom! Also take ear plugs the neighbours upstairs can be particularly noisy walking around their flat, but thats apartment living for you.
The flat was in a great location 10-15 min walk to the old city and shopping district, just a few minutes to Turia gardens where there are plenty of play ares for kids and a park train ride, and 10 min bus ride to the beaches but there is a brilliant bus service and if you use the EMT website it tells you how to get everywhere. There were fantastic restaurants and cafes in the area and if you can try the berenjanas con miel( fried aubergine with honey) also the coffee drink blanco y negro and of course the horchata the best ones are at the central market and at the city of arts and sciences.
All in all highly recommend Valencia and the apartment, well i would definitely stay in it again i will just take my own bread knife!
Vacaciones en Valencia
La casa es estupenda, muy bien situada y la terraza es una maravilla. Estuvimos cuatro días con dos niños pequeños y es la mejor opción para visitar la ciudad a pie. Nos encontramos la casa con flores y verduras deliciosas de la huerta, hay un montón de sitios para salir a cenar, los jardines del Turia en la puerta y un autobus que te lleva a la Malvarrosa en diez minutos... Recomiendo totalmente esta casa.
Valencia in Style!
Ivan! Thank you for the wonderful apartment and all the care you took over our stay! The terrace, which was what attracted us to the apartment, was wonderful, everything we'd hoped for and a great outdoor space to chill out in the afternoon and eat in the evening. What we were not expecting, but were delighted to find, was that the rest of the apartment was so well appointed - lovely open plan living room wit wonderful sofa and a library of books, DVDs and CDs - modern kitchen with plenty of equipment, much more than the basics and really useful stuff to have in a city where there is so much good food in the markets! The Master bedroom offered an unexpected en-suite, a lovely touch to compliment what is a very generous and well-provided bathroom, complete with roll-top bath, plenty of towels and a hairdryer. The apartment is situated within easy walk of the Turia River Gardens and the Oceanagraphic, whilst a walk in the other directions through the Gardens takes you to BioPark, both well worth a visit. To get in to the old town you have a 20 minute stroll through pleasant streets strewn with Cafes and other diversions. Our regular trips to the impressive market were made all the sweeter for having somewhere to cook and relax when we got back. All in all a wonderful stay in a wonderful city and in no small means made so by the apartment, and the time and care taken by Ivan. We'll be back!!
