Overview

About the property

2 Bed sleeps 6.Air con.**Free WIFI** British TV chans.Great spec.Lrge terrace

Lovely frontline beachside apartment with direct views of beach & Atlantic Ocean. Ideal romantic break or family holiday. Situated in Isla Canela a comparatively quiet beach resort a short distance from the authentically Spanish town of Ayamonte. Known as the 'Coast of Light' Costa Del La Luz offers gorgeous white sandy beaches, National Parks, magnificent golf courses & generally a less spoiled feel than other Costa's. Isla Canela has its own marina with shops, bars & restuarants. Ferries run regularly to Portugal from Ayamonte & it is well sited to explore The Algarve, Portugal, 1 hr from the majestic city of Seville, and 45 mins from Donana National Park. Watch closely as you look across the Rio Guadiana to Portugal as Dolphins can be seen in natural habitat. Seagoing adventures also available from Marina Isla Canela.Relax on our large terrace & enjoy the unique light, or head for Punta Del Moral the nearby fishing village & sample freshly caught fish. Paddle tennis courts available

Golf: Isla Canela Golf course a short car ride (10 mins) as is the newly built Costa Esuri championship golf course which opened in January 2007 (15 mins). There are an abundance of other courses in the area such as Islantilla, Casto Marim and a plethera of course on the easily accessible Portuguese Algarve

Other Things to Note

The swimming pool opening dates are anuallly from May (weekends only & weather permitting) until 12 June when it is open daily until 16 September. From the 17 September it is weekends only weather permitting and it is completely closed from October. This is standard practice for apartments in this area of Spain. Spanish law states that when pools are of a certain size there must be a life guard in attendance when it is open and most management companies do not provide one until the more "traditionally" busier times of the season. Most guests have not found this to be a problem not least because it is on the beachfront and so easy to spend time on the beach. If you feel this may deter you from making a reservation I strongly recommend you check with other owners before you consider booking elsewhere.

Best value for money

  • 5 of 5

Superb location, just in front of the beach on one of the most sunny places in Europe. parking space just 10 meters from stairs and elevator available, if needed.

Enough space in the apartment for everyone to get along without annoying one another.

Very well equipped kitchen, decent size rooms and bathroom.

Very good living room, with lcd, dvd, sat, hifi, some books and a decent quantity of dvd's if that's our thing.

Really big pool and a small one for toddlers.

Garden well taken care of and a small play area for kids

Owner is extremely friendly and will do the best for you to have a memorable stay.

Will come again.

One note: you'll need a car or to rent a bike, if you want anything more than sand and sea.

Another note: groceries in Portugal are 50% cheaper. Try minipreço, pingo doce and intermarché in Vila Real, just across the border.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property - your comments are most appreciated. Great to hear you are thinking of coming again to stay with us - you will be most welcome! Great tip about groceries - I didn't know that and will check it out myself especially in this economic climate!! Customers have mentioned bikes to me before - I have already bought one & intend to buy more next time I am in Spain. So hopefully, by next season there will be bikes available too. Will be jolly good fun cycling along the seafront its very flat - so perfect & I can burn off a few calories! Once again, thank you, it was a pleasure doing business with you and hope to hear from you soon.

A lovely apartment in an ideal place!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as we hoped, really lovely and well appointed. The access info was easy to understand and we were soon in and unpacked!

The Apartment block itself was beautiful, lovely grounds and on the edge of a fantastic beach, and in easy walking distance of many bars etc, our favour being La Sonrisa, on the beach!!

Thoroughly recommend this Apartment and we'll be coming again!

Just like being at home!

  • 5 of 5

Upon first entry, the apartment was warm and welcoming, it didn't feel like we were in a holiday home at all. It has everything you could possibly want for a stay and most importantly the kitchen is more than well equipped for preparing meals for a group of people.

With the beach just a short walk away and the Spanish border only a ten minute drive, you couldn't be better situated!

The deal breaker is the TV streaming box however, myself and my coach were on a training camp, so it was great to come back to the apartment and flick on Sky Sports and BT Sport between sessions!

We will certainly be returning next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review. We do work hard to maintain the standard and its really lovely when guests take time to appreciate that. We're really pleased you enjoyed the british TV - its a relatively new addition so its great to know that guests like it. Good luck in the ParaAthletics - I personally went to the 2012 Olympics and ParaOlympics and was in awe of the dedication of the sports people and talent our country had to offer. We would love you to come back. You would be very welcome. Regards

Very nice apartment with everything you would expect.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and had everything you would need. I took 1 minute to walk to the pool and 3 minutes to the beach. Due to the great cycle lanes we hired bikes and felt very safe even with our 8 year old daughter. The pool had a permanent lifeguard and is also gated for safety.

Certainly would recommend Isla Canella to families and couples alike, very Spanish and relaxing!

AS GOOD AS EVER

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed in Yvonne's apartment and it was excellent. On arrival all was clean and smart, everything worked. Normally we go in May but as we were a bit later this year the pool was actually open the first weekend which was a bonus. For a couple of days the wind was whipping up the sand on the beach so we just retired to the seclusion of the pool area. Not many people in the complex but this suited us as we are not happy to be surrounded by screaming kids. Peace and quiet prevailed, lovely.

Our favourite restaurant in Punta Del Moral has closed, The Bella Napoli but has now re-opened in Ayamonte and is called the Italiano Surf and Turf, well worth a visit. As per usual a car is a good idea to get out and see the area, life is too short to sit on the beach all day. Thanks Yvonne for a great stay in your apartment and as General Mc Arthur said in WW2, We will return.

Great beachfront property.

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd visit to the property. Isla Canela very quiet at this time of year, so ideal for a relaxing time. There are a few of the local restaurants open, including some of the new beach bars, however it only takes 5 minutes to drive to Ayamonte, where there is a huge selection of places. This is Spain, mainly for the Spanish, so prices for food and drink are NOT inflated, you can eat & drink for buttons! Highly recommend the apartment , nice condition, and great views over the sea. Will be back , hopefully soon.

Ayamonte playas - Isla Canela
Car: recommended

Isla Canela or the beaches of Ayamonte on the Costa De La Luz. Often known as the Spanish Algarve possibly because of the close proximity to The Algarve, Portugal. 1 hr from Seville. Close to La Rabida the start of Columbus's epic journey that discovered the Americas. Visit Donana National Park. Take a ferry trip across Rio Guadiana to Castro Marim, a medieval town in Portugal. Experience the many top class golf courses within the Isla Canela area & in Portugal.

Other Activities: Quad bike hire. Paddle tennis within apartment
