Beautiful 2 bd apartment in a 300+ year old building at the heart of Cadiz and at about 3 minutes distance to the Caleta beach. Fully renovated, modern, tasteful and it comes with everything you'll need for your trip (private patio, AC, wifi, etc).
This is a recently renovated full 2 bedroom apartment situated at the ground floor of a nearly 300 year old building in the historic area of Cadiz. It's located about 5 minutes walking distance from the beautiful La Caleta beach, which has some of the most wonderful sunsets in the World. The apartment is placed in a very quiet street. If you've ever been to Spain you know how important this is.
The apartment is about 85sq metres big, (900 sq feet), has two roomy bedrooms, (one with a queen size bed and an additional one with 2 twin sized beds), full bathroom with washing machine, American style kitchen and a spacious living room. There is access to the central beautiful patio and a private tiny Andalusian patio connecting both bedrooms with table, chairs, herbs and plants. Ideal for breakfast or late night conversations.
There is also access to the roof of the building, where locals dry their laundry or just gather and hang out.
The location is superb, you will be literally a 5 minute walk from everything: beaches, parks, public transportation, public market and squares, churches, etc... It's located in the area where locals just hang out and walk with their children.
The apartment is fully furnished and comes with everything you may need: cable-international TV, high speed wi-fi internet, landline, coffee maker, towels, linens, laundry machine, etc. There is also a crib if you are traveling with babies. There is a mac computer for your personal use, in case you don't bring a laptop or just want to watch movies in bed. There is also central heating and AC, again, if you ever been to Spain, you know how important this is.
In addition to that, I provide two bikes to get around, which is by far the best (and most fun!) way to get around Cadiz.
I was born and raised in Cadiz, bought this house with the idea of living there with my wife when I move back from California. I just want you to take good care of it!
The apartment is ideal for 2 to 5 people. It has a sofa bed for 2 people in the living room.
You will have access to everything, the apartment will be all yours and you'll have access to amenities, utensils, cooking pots and pans, wifi, tv, phone, beach towels, etc. Feel free to read my books and use my home made artisan baskets to go pick up some groceries at the nearby traditional farmers market.
Interaction with Guests
I was born and raised in Cadiz, while I currently live in San Francisco, I am really proud of my town and I really you to have the best experience possible, I love sharing stories and giving advice about Cadiz. You'll definitely hear from me, and you will expect me asking you about your needs and giving you tips on what to do, where to go and where are the best spots in town.
The house is situated in the best area of Cadiz: Right between La Viña, which is the most traditional neighborhood which hosts the Carnival and the Caleta, the best beach in town, You will be at 5 minutes walking distance from the beach, the Genoves Park, the Alameda, which has some stunning views of the Bay, and the Central Markets and Plazas.
I provide two bikes for your use. Bus stops is 4 or 5 minutes away, there is a taxi stop just few blocks from the house and if you prefer to drive, there is very convenient parking garage at few minutes distance from the house.
Other Things to Note
Just try to enjoy the town as much as you can. The house is really well located and close to everything, please do not hesitate in getting in touch with me if you need anything.
Be courteous to the neighbors. Most of them are families with small kids and like some relax time. Some noise is ok, Spaniards can be really noisy, and go to bed late, but observe rules of courtesy. Take care of all the appliances, wash the dishes and make sure the house is clean. Just leave it clean as you found it! Thanks!
La casa es estupenda incluso para 5 personas, es moderna cómoda y está bien decorada. Durante la estancia estuvimos una pareja en cada habitación y una quinta persona en el sofá, que se convierte en un cama grande y sorprendentemente cómoda, por lo que no hubo problema de espacio.
Montse, la amiga de Pablo que atiende a los huéspedes en ausencia de éste, es muy agradable y siempre está atenta a los huéspedes.
En conclusión, un sitio para estar muy recomendable y a un precio más que razonable.
Está bien equipado.
Tiene dos bicis, pero no als usamos, porque está situado céntrico.
Está en un bajo y entra muy poca luz. Tiene acceso en ascensor a una azotea comunitaria donde puedes echar una ojeada a las estrellas o a las azoteas coolindantes.
El baño, al ser un bajo en ciudad de mar, huele muy mal. Me imagino que se podría solucionar de algún modo.
Era enero y la calefacción no funcionaba, solo emitía aire templada (aún poniéndola a 32 º C para probar). Pero nos apañamos con un calefactor eléctrico.
Para aparcar no tuvimos problema en zona blanca o azul (nos íbamos de excursión en coche casi cada día). De la zona de tráfico al apartamento hay un paseo (10 min. Max.), qué para mi es un plus, porque ves cosas y tienes el ruido lejos.
Los dormitorios dan a un pequeñísimo patio que es interior, así que duermes tranquilo.
En la salara de estar-cocina, sí hay más ruido, porque las ventanas no aislan mucho en esa zona. Pero, quién duerma allí, serámás bien de alma fiestera y juvenil y no creo que le moleste mucho.
Montse, la chica que nos entregó las llaves no atendió amabilísimamente.
Pablo, es muy atento y nos escribió a días de nuestra llegada para preocuparse por nosotros y si todo iba bien.
We really enjoyed your superbly located apartment, so central to all the beautiful places to visit in Cadiz. Many thanks for all the suggestions concerning the yummy restaurants. A definite abode to return to!
Pablo was not in Cadiz when we were there but he was still very responsive and helpful in helping us get to where we needed to go and in touch with Montse. Montse is a doll! She was absolutely wonderful! The house is awesome! In a great location! And you can ride the bikes they provide down to the beach! Our trip was delightful in Cadiz and our Airbnb experience with Pablo and Montse definitely enhanced our experience in Cadiz.
Pablo was very responsive and helpful. We were met by his friend Montse who was gorgeous and very helpful and gave us some good tips. The apartment is in a good central and was very comfortable and warm. The bedrooms are very quiet and I loved the bed. We really liked having the bikes.
All communication with Pablo was excellant when planning our trip .
I am reviewing this probably from a different perspective from most of the tenants as we were there for a month and looked on it as a home from home . We were pleased with the facilities as we could cook and do laundry easily . Great drying facilities on the roof . Good fridge freezer and washing machine ..
The flat is on a perfect spot for the beach , the market and the Manuel de Falla theatre which we went to three times . Buses are easily accessed from the flat No 2 &7 and very cheap and you can walk everywhere very easily . The bed was incredibly comfortable and because the bedrooms are at the back are very quiet . We had a very happy time in Cadjz and were very comfortable in Pablos flat . Montse even found a physio for me as I hurt my back on day one of my holiday .He came and treated me in the flat .
Montse also bought some basics for us for our first day .
We have spent our vacations in a car trip around Andalucia and Cadiz was certainly the major destination of it. It should be said the apartment of Pablo turned out to be also the most exciting place to stay and we received an excellent and soulful communication out of it also.
The apartment is situated in the heart of Cadiz old town, that is actually the hugest old town of all the cities we've been to (Malaga, Tarifa, Almeria). You can reach all the corners of the city in 10 minutes walk, be it the city beach or the parque or the walking areas along the ocean. You have cafes for breakfast, supermarkets (Sol & Dia) for cooking, restaurants and bar, charming squares right in a 5 minutes access whatever direction you might take (be aware this city is a labyrinth, so getting lost there should be accepted as a matter of game and entertainment).
The flat itself is as show on the photos, with a charming innercourt and a private patio inside the flat to dry the clothes or take morning coffee. Two bedrooms are spacions and separated for privacy matter. The kitchen and hall area are good enough for 4 people.
Finally the communication is easy and friendly - both with Pablo and charming Montse. We were given an award winning recommendation for the restaurant to visit, so be confident with asking these beautiful people for the advise.
I would recommend this place for any age, any reason of travel for a homish stay in the heart of this ancient and heart and mindbreaking city of Cadiz with the highest priority.
