This Arbatax town-centre apartment (1 of 4 apartments in a free-standing building; 1 apartment is Daniela's parents' apartment- they spend their summers in Arbatax; 3 are rented out on AirBNB) is in a good location. On-street parking in front of the house. Great outdoor shower (downstairs), shared by all apartments. Outdoor washing machine, shared by the 3 other apartments, on terrace right outside our apartment (the one with the yellow kitchen, in the listing pictures). Little privacy on the apartment terrace, as it is shared with 1 other apartment, for which it is also the access route to their apartment. It is also the back entrance to Daniela's parents' apartment, and it has the fairly heavily used washing machine on it. It is a lovely terrace, with a nice breeze, and a nice view over the mountains in the distance. Ask Daniela's parents for the deck chairs shown in the listing, if they are not there. There is airconditioning in the kitchen, not in the bedroom. The bedroom gives onto Daniela's parents' small vegetable garden- which they tend in the morning, and has a view over the Arbatax harbour (v quiet industrial harbour& a marina) and the beaches. No need for airconditioning with the window wide open at night, as there is always a breeze as your are right on the coast. Communication with Daniela's parents-the caretakers- is v limited as they only speak Italian, and a few words of French (D's mother). Not an issue generally. Unfortunately, in our case there was a need for detailed communication- which went badly wrong. Despite this, we recommend the apartment itself and its location. A good base for exploring the fabulous East coast of Sardinia. Nice restaurants nearby. Especially Da Lenin (make reservations), a short drive away. Easy to reach from Cagliari and Olbia airports- great motor (URL HIDDEN) when we stayed at the apartment, all of the other guests (Germany, Austria-Canada, Italy) were lovely people.
