The apartment is located right in the town centre, 1 min. to the main square with shops and restaurants on the doorstep. Bus/ferry/train station are 10 mins walk away. Easy access to Gibraltar, l go every day. The bedroom can be booked for one person at a cheaper rate
It's a nice and clean place, which makes it a perfect place to spend the night before/after going to Africa or to use as a base for visiting places in Andalucia, as Algeciras is the main transport hub for onwards travel in the area. Gibraltar and Tarifa are 20 mins drive away. Tangiers ferry 10 mins walk. Also bus/train to Portugal, Cadiz, Ronda, Sevilla, Malaga, Marbella, Jerez, Granada, Cordoba etc.
The bedroom is of a good size but small with built in wardrobes. You will have your own private toilet/small shower and access to a big shower in my bathroom. Please only use the big bathroom for showering, so I am not excluded from using my own bathroom for longer than needed. The bedroom comprises of 2 single beds, which can be pushed together to one double bed.
In need, it can be arranged for a further room with 1 double airbed and/or the couch.
You may store your suitcases in my study/office if you don't want it in the bedroom. If you have any special needs or requests, please do not hesitate to ask.

Everything is so close by being on one of the main streets in the centre but also located just inside the old part of town in a traditional Spanish style building. The shops are on the other two parallel main streets and the restaurants are at the other end of my street, which excludes the worst noise you can get from city centres.
Once booked, I will send you a map with everything you may need to find during your stay

We had a very comfortable stay at Helle's place. She was really helpful as she's always ready to answer all of our queries! We really enjoyed our time there although it was really short!
We stayed for one night, the flat was in a good central location. The room was very clean and comfy. Helle was really friendly and gave us lots of good advice on what to do in Algeciras.
Helle was friendly and made our stay comfortable. She provided us with blankets, towels and useful information.
All in all we had a positive experience.
Thank you! =)
Everything was OK. Clean and quite comfortable. The house is in a good position in Algeciras.
The room was tidy, we just slept there for two nights. We didn't use kitchen or any other room because we make trips to other cities. Helle let us use her bathroom which was very good because the other one was too small. She speaks English very well so the communication was without any problems.
Nice to meet you guys. Pls note the property is listed as a 1,5 bathroom. You had your own private bathroom with a small shower and access to a big shower in another bathroom. The property is described as such and the info is repeated in the pre-arrival info I send, so it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone ;-)
Pls note that it is not a hotel!
After having booked the room Helle sent us a e-mail containing all relevant information - about how to get there and a bit about the surroundings which was very useful and nice! We arrived at the apartment when Helle was at work but she had made all preparations so we could get in the apartment ourselves. The few times we saw Helle we really enjoyed her company and we would have liked spending more time with her. We definitely recommend a stay at Helle's place.
We only stayed with Nelle for one night, and didn't see her much, but the room was perfect. Great location, comfortable and well taken care of. We enjoyed our stay and would happily stay there again.
Friendly and open-minded host, I have travelled all over the world on 6 continents and I like meeting new people and fellow travellers. When I am unable to travel myself, this way will still let me meet people who like to travel.
For your holiday travel tips from me, I have been to Morocco 5 times all over, Portugal 2 times and I work in Gibraltar. I regularly travel around Andalusia.
