My 'all amenities' studio apartment with private balcony overlooks the beautiful golden beach of Sandy Bay, on the Mediterranean/Eastern side of Gibraltar, at the foot of the amazing Rock, with just a few steps down to the sand. It is in a very peaceful part of Gibraltar, but within a short regular bus ride into town for the sights, nightlife and shopping. There are amazing sunrises, as well as ships, yachts, and if you are lucky, whales and dolphins. Nearby is Catalan bay for great food.
The building is very well maintained in its shared spaces. On entering my apartment, you will see the sumptuous super-king sized bed made up with luxury high thread count cotton bedding. Your eyes will quickly be drawn to the window, and you will not be able to resist going straight out to the private balcony to appreciate the amazing view of the sea, which is literally on the doorstep. Look to the left to appreciate the Spanish Andalucian mountains, and to the right to admire the Rif (Middle Atlas) range in Morocco. The stylish studio apartment is just the right size to be cosy but spacious enough to be very comfortable. There is a small dining/dressing table, with three designer chairs. It benefits from a 32 inch smart TV with access to many Sky channels, and UK channels. Free wifi is included. USB charging points available by the bed. There is a telephone for you to use for incoming calls, as well as a powerful hairdryer. It has a lovely little kitchen with quality equipment by Joseph Joseph, a full oven, microwave. toaster, and a fridge with ready chilled water for you. You will be provided with a welcome pack to get the first days of your holiday off to a good start, and a cafetiere for your coffee essentials. There is a foldaway table in the kitchen and stools for extra food prep space, or eating, but I think you will be spending all your time dining alfresco on the balcony! The super-king sized bed can be separated into two singles, with firm mattresses and memory foam toppers - extraordinarily comfortable! The bathroom has a powerful over-bath shower, and heated towel rail to keep your towels dry and the apartment toasty in the winter. There is a large wardrobe with hanging space and shelving, and a built in safe for your valuables (not necessary as Gib is very safe!). There is a comprehensive information file with bus information, maps and activities to enhance your enjoyment of this amazing place. It is very clean, stylish, and has a beautiful outlook, you can relax at night to the sound of the lapping waves, the peace and quiet is wonderful, although the bustle of town is in easy and quick reach. The nights are cooler in summer on the East side of the Rock, but I also have reverse air conditioning for your comfort summer or winter. The windows have blackout blinds, so you can sleep later or gaze at the amazing sunrises if you prefer! The private balcony is equipped with sun loungers and a table and chairs. Lanterns add to the romance of the summer's evening with the sound of the waves lapping. There is an awning for the balcony so you can have shade if you wish!
I am sorry there is no lift, and the apartment is down a flight of stairs, so may not be accessible for the disabled. I have catered for your safety with a smoke alarm, fire blanket, and fire extinguisher.
The whole apartment is available, and the block is literally right on the beautiful, clean, safe and level beach at Sandy Bay. The complex is set at the foot of the amazing Rock.
I am can try to accommodate flexible check in and out if you have a late flight and bookings/cleaning allow. There will be a small extra charge of £10 for this. I can often allow an early bag drop if needed for £5.
I am afraid that the apartment has no lift, and is therefore not suitable for wheelchair users.

I am easy going, but also a bit of a perfectionist, and really want people to love my apartment and love Gibraltar. I have lots of family there, and love the sun and the beach, and the feel of the place. It is home to me. Our apartment allows us to stay there when guests aren't there! One life, live it - Carpe diem, seize the day!
