About This Listing
The apartment is just 1 minute away from the beach La Fosca of Palamós. It has one bedroom with 2 built-in cabinets, 1 bathroom, kitchen with stove and balcony for the washing machine, salon with sofa-bed and an ample balcony overseeing the sea. It can accommodate up to 4 persons. So if you plan to have a quiet vacation far from the maddening crowd this apartment is ideal for you!
The parking is included, the lot is spacious and inside the compound so it is pretty safe.
There's a high season price for the months of July, August and September - just ask and we'll arrange it to give you a special discount.
The apartment itself was pretty disappointing - it was clean-ish but dusty and smelled old. The beds were two single ones, very noisy and uncomfortable.
The wifi in the house didn't work and we had to use the free wifi of the bar on the beach, that's why we didn't pay those extra 15€.
The location was lovely thou, 5 min walk to La Fosca beach and easily connected to a series of other lovely little beaches.
Communication with the host was weird.. It started off great, before we actually checked in - after that, the host wasn't there to welcome us, instructions to the house and collection of the keys was unclear if not cryptic.
We did end up having a good time anyways, seen that the surroundings were so nice.
Irene, thanks for the comments. I couldn't welcome you guys because I am working and I don't live there in the apartment as I clearly explained to you in our many regular communication. You didn't mention that the wifi in the house was not working - I thought you were that communicative and sincere when I asked you if everything was alright. The oxymoron you said about the apartment being clean-ish but dusty and smelled old was because there was a problem with the blinds which was fixed the same day you were about to get in. The dusty thing you mention is in the balcony because the blinds were damaged for a week. The instructions I gave you was so clear - you had to go the bar to pick up the keys and return them at the real estate agent when you leave - nothing less, nothing more.
L'appartement de Joe est très confortable et très bien placé. Joe ne pouvait pas être présent, mais nous avons pu le joindre sans problème par téléphone. La plage (très mignonne, avec ses petits restau) et les commerces sont tout près. Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour !
Appartement très bien situé (2 minutes a pied de la plage) avec toutes les commodités. Très apprécié ! Balcon avec une vue magnifique. Très bon accueil de joe. C est un endroit excellent à partir duquel on peut decouvrir des jolies plages et de belles ballades !
Joe's place was great. We had some things in common but we didn't get to meet unfortunately. The place is close to the beach and has some great hiking trails. One warning, the local store was closed. There are not any taxis but Joe will probably assist you in this. Just be forwarned that it is better to go to a supermarket before you arrive. Then you will be completely comfortable.
Thanks Joe for everything. I will recommend it!
