Communication with Vanessa was fine and her mum was there to meet us at the agreed time, check in fast and efficient. The apartment is brilliantly situated in Cuenca - mid way between the old town sites and the new town with all the bars, shops etc, but still quiet and peaceful. The nearby church rings its bells just for mass, so no problem with clanging in the night! It is on the fourth floor, and also is half way up the hill, so would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
Kitchen reasonably well equipped, and a particularly groovy shower, although no hair dryer. Bedroom separate from the main room, and nice to have a proper balcony and french doors. Vanessa directed us to bars etc in the town which we wouldn't otherwise have known about. No wifi.
Overall highly recommended -as is Cuenca itself and the Sierra, both beautiful, laid back and great to spend time in. But beware if you have your own car in the city - the streets are amazingly narrow and complicated! Quite a challenge. (Vanessa did recommend car parks to us however, so take advice in advance and keep calm).
Very cute flat but very simply equiped. The market is at 5min walk and a much bigger is at 10 min by car.
Van 19 t/m 21 april hebben wij gelogeerd in het appartement van Vanessa Miranzo. Het appartement gelegen in het historische gedeelte van Cuenca, dat door de taxichauffeur niet was te vinden, echter heeft Vanessa telefonisch hem de weg gewezen; een fijne eerste ervaring met Vanessa. Aangekomen had zij Sergio meegenomen als tolk, die geweldig goed Engels (website hidden) bezichtiging en tekst en uitleg van alles in het appartement, wat overeenkomt met de foto's op de site, kregen wij ook tips voor bezienswaardigheden en restaurants in de omgeving. Ook werd ons de weg gewezen welke weg wij moesten nemen naar het historische gedeelte en richting restaurants. Het appartement was mooi en schoon. Omdat bij de heenreis de taxichauffeur het adres niet kon vinden en wij geen Spaans spreken, heeft Vanessa de taxi voor de terugreis perfect voor ons geregeld. Wij hebben geweldige dagen gehad in het appartement van Vanessa; een aanrader om hier te logeren!
Vanessa fue muy amable, nos acompañó a aparcar y nos dio muchas recomendaciones para que nuestro finde fuera bien aprovechado. La casa está en el pleno centro de Cuenca. Muy recomendada.
Una gran anfitriona, el trato estupendo, vino a recogernos a la estación y nos aconsejó que visitar, además nos dió total confianza para llamarla por si necesitabamos cualquier cosa. En cuanto al apartamento está situado en un sitio privilegiado, muy cómodo, completamente equipado y cerca de todo.
Let me begin by saying that we stayed here in the winter. Our very big complaint is we were miserably cold…I mean terribly, awful cold. We are from New Hampshire and we keep our thermostat at home between 62-65. So, we are used to the cold. This place was so cold we could not shower. In fact we had to sleep with all of our clothes and parkas on. Vanessa did not turn the heat on before we arrived and kept it at the lowest setting when she let us into the apartment. The T.V may have been operable but we could not figure out how to turn it on and there were no instructions for it. There were no instructions for the oven which we also could not turn on. There was no kettle. The kitchen had zero in it as far as condiments. I mean not even salt. Beware the apartment is up 3 or 4 flights of stairs. There is no internet. The old town where it is situated has no grocery or bakery. You have a 15 minute walk into the main part of town to get food.
I am very sorry that you got cold in my house. That day it there was a huge snowfall and the temperatures were very low. It is not true that our heating were not connected before you arrived. I turned it on two days before as usual to be sure the house is in the correct temperature for you. Furthermore. Our heating is electrical and, of course, it was not stated to the minimum value but to the highest one. The problem is that you ignored my recommendations and modified the settings of the heater resulting in turning it off by mistake. Anyways, I gave you my mobile phone and clearly advised you to call me in the case you have any problem at any time. Again it is not true that there were no groceries in 15 minutes around. You can kindly enter to google maps and check the distance between my house in Cesareo Olivares Nº3 Street and Alonso de Ojeda Street (just 100 meters away you can find a grocery) and in Puerta de Valencia Nº 9 Street (190 m away) you can find a bakery, a butcher´s shop and a fruit shop. The nearest supermarket is just 390m away in Las Torres Nº16 Street (4 minutes by walk according to google maps) I Indicated to you the fastest way to walk up to there while explaining where the tapas zone was placed. Regarding our TV, the model is Panasonic TX-L32C20EA), a very common model which operability is as simple as any other normal TV. You can turn it on and off from the remote control as in the rest of TVs in the word. I am sorry but did not consider necessary to put instructions in English for that. By the way, remote control is always placed close to the TV. I am very sorry you´re stay was not comfortable but, in my opinion, all these problems could have been solved with a simple phone call. It would have been a pleasure to help you in time.
Felicitaciones a Vanessa por el interés mostrado en todo momento. El piso esta muy bien situado y cuidado. Gracias a toda la información que nos dejó, hemos podido conocer Cuenca al detalle.
