We arrived during the Monday evening and as soon as we entered this beautiful apartment we knew we were going to have a fantastic holiday. There were four of us (a group of friends) and two of them were celebrating 50th birthdays. They couldn't have wished for a better way to celebrate. The apartment was spotlessly clean and it felt so homely and comfortable. The layout of the apartment is excellent and the four of us didn't feel like we were on top of each other ... we each had our own bed to sleep in (and we all slept very well) and there were two bathrooms (and 3 showers!) The kitchen had everything we needed and Alex the owner really does think of everything - we didn't need to take dishwasher tablets, dishcloths, tea towels, washing up liquid ... it was all there for our use. The utility room had a washing machine (with wash powder supplied) which was very useful. The decor is lovely and we all felt so happy to have discovered this beautiful apartment. Upon arriving, we walked out onto the terrace - this was a real 'WOW' moment for us all - the lighting is beautiful and creates a very relaxing environment in which to watch the world go by down below us. The view in the daylight is equally as stunning - the Palm Atlantis was ahead of us, and the Burj al Arab was in the distance to our right. We were lucky enough to experience UAE National Day during our stay and also, Dubai were hosting the World Air Games. There were air displays every day we were there ... and the runway was right in front of our terrace. We saw so many different things during our stay including aerobatics, hot air ballons, parachutists, paragliding and so much more (including a shooting star!) There were also 3 consecutive nights of fireworks which were right in front of us too. Jo the agent who looks after the apartment contacted me and popped in on our first morning to show us a few things in the apartment and gave us the keys we needed to use to get into the building. She's a lovely lady and spoke excellent English. She also visited us on our last morning and was kind enough to organise our taxi transfer back to the airport. It is sometimes a little worrying when you book an apartment with someone you don't know ... but Alex the owner has been wonderful and answered any questions I had promptly. He popped in and said hello during our stay. The whole booking process is excellent. Thank you Alex for letting us rent your beautiful apartment - we will be back! :-)
