This apartment offers everything for a short (or longer) stay in San Sebastian/Donostia. It is very well appointed with all the conveniences, from the espresso machine (with capsules left by the hosts), to soaps, detergent, and shower gels. Location is perfect as it is very close to Zurriola beach and is surrounded by bakeries/grocery stores/fruit stores. The owners, Rosa and Manuel were very welcoming and gracious. Highly recommend.
The 2,490 characters would not be enough to best explain the level of satisfaction felt in staying at Juan Luis' flat in San Sebastian.
Juan's correspondence began MONTHS before our arrival and was so helpful in our needs in figuring out not only our flat arrangments, but in our lacking knowledge in the area.
From train stations in multiple countries to a list of restaurants not only in the San Sebastian area on day excursions we had planned, to car rental help, the list goes on and on....Never have we felt more welcomed as a guest than we did with Juan-Luis.
Upon arriving and meeting us personally at check-in, he continued to text us personalized items of where to stop and what to do based on our text exchange. My wife and I were traveling with our 4-year old daughter and mother-in-law and our interests ranged accordingly. It did not stop from tailored recommendations by Juan from start to finish on our trip.
We were able to take advantage of almost all of his suggestions and every single one of them delivered to the fullest. Juan knows his area and the pride felt in getting to share some of his favorite spots/secrets was something we were so happy to have taken advantage of. Don't waste time with travel books as no one could know the city better.
I stay in VRBO's all the time, for work and vacation and there has never been anyone 1/10th as accommodating as Juan. This is in no way a slight to other owners as much as it is a compliment to our host.
I am so reluctant to post this review and lessen our chances of being able to rebook due to his property being full as it only grows with popularity :). Kidding aside, we will be back at Juan's flat for our future stays in San Sebastian until we can one day buy our own property in this absolutely fantastic, charming and "have everything you could need" city!
