Regarding public transportation:
The cheap option, only 1,5€ one ride. 2 min walking from the apartment is a roundabout with several buses stops, going every 5 minutes to the downtown (Number 19 is the best option what takes 15-20 min) or to the City of Arts&Science.
During the night, you can pick up the night bus N1.
Few minutes away is the tram stop (called La Cadena). Taking the tram, you can change to the subway and move arround the City or get easily to the airport.
Other option is to take a taxi to move arround Valencia what will cost between 10-12 euros to get to the downtown.
Public bikes stop (Valenbisi) is very close. Other option is to rent a bike! Valencia is a flat City, so you won't have any problem to ride a bike here.

Very cute apartment, great location on the beach (fantastic for running and swimming in the mornings!), with every detail that you would need provided for. They even had beach spreads that we could use for lying on the beach! Location is a little bit far from the center of town, so it shoul dbe a conscious choice to stay on the beach rather than downtown (which it was in our case). Taxi to town is just 10e though, and many direct bus connections too, so very easy to go up and down.
Vicente and his wife were really wonderful - they even picked us up from the airport; best airbnb experience ever in that respect!
We had fantastic time in Vicente's apartments. The location is excellent for beach holidays. Very close to the sea, the supermarket with impressive fish counter just five-ten min walking. It takes 30 min to get to the city centre by bus and you even walk easily to Town of Arts and Science.
The apartment itself is nice and clean, very good equipped, with nice lounge and large eat in kitchen.
Vicente is looking after guests with the help of his wife and sons. They are so lovely people! They made us feel very welcome from the first minutes of our arrival. Their attention to details is exceptional. For example, knowing that my daughter is on gluten free diet, they provide us with gluten free bread and biscuits as a welcome gift, it was such a nice touch! Also they bought kettle and toaster specially for us. All the issues with the apartment were handled fast and smoothly.
Vicente was always happy to suggest for us good restaurants and wine shops, so don't forget to ask him where you can try the best paella in town. you won't regret it!
overall, we had more than positive experience and I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends and hope to come again myself too.
Thank you very much, Vicente!
Thanks Vicente and his family for a wonderful vacation! Vincent and his son met us at the train station. At the apartment welcome amenities for life were waiting us. But the important thing is that host with no requests from us helped in searching of our lost luggage at the airport. Thanks Vincent again!
The apartment is beyond praise, very clean and tidy, well equipped kitchen, host is taken care of, even on accessories for the beach. Location of the apartment is just perfect for a beach holiday. Also close to transportation, to the City of Science and Arts 20 min, 30min to Old Town.
I highly recommend!
Thank you very much for the wonderful holidays at your apartment! Everthing worked fine (air condition, washing machine, etc).
The sea is really near and to go to towntown you take the bus - it´s really easy.
Vicente and his wife are great hosts and many thanks for your trip tips. We should have been longer at this place.
We had a great time in Vicente's apartment! Vicente is a great host, very helpful and easy to contact. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, and very close to the beach with nice bars around for breakfast and dinner. The city center is easy to reach by bus, it takes about 20-30 minutes.
Buenos tardes la familia Lopez! Usted muy bien los gentes! Nos todo muy gustamos ,yo voy recomendar Vos mis amigos! Usted fue mas mejor de todo anfitrion , donde nosotros fuimos! Saludos Elvira & Alex .
We had a very nice stay in Valencia! The location of the flat is good. Close to the beach and not too fare away from the city centre. The bus stops right at the corner. It takes less than 5 minutes to walk to the super marked.
The apartment is roomy, nice and the air is fresh. Vicente is a very good host and addressed our every inquiry fast.
Vicente and his wife picked us up from the train station which was very nice. They don't speak much English but are an incredibly cute and friendly couple.
The apartment was nice, with a sliding door which opened out onto a balcony where you can have a meal and a lougeroom with nice comfy couches. The kitchen is great, but there were not many pots and pans and there was no kettle or toaster. The bed was comfortable. The second bedroom would be perfect if you had a child with you.
It's a nice neighburhood but sometimes a little noisy so if you are a light sleeper bring your earplugs, Having said that, my boyfriend had no trouble sleeping so it's just personal preference.
It is in a good location close to the beach (about 2-3 minutes walk) and there are two supermarkets also nearby. The bus to the city is very close too.
The Valencia apartment is spacious, well-equipped and very close to a lovely beach. Vicente and his wife were so kind in rushing to meet me at their place when I arrived hours earlier than expected due to changes in my departure plans from Barcelona. They were very friendly and warm. Grocery shopping is nearby as well as the bus for an easy ride into the city.
We are very happy we stayed in Vincente's apartment. Carlos (his son) picked us even up from the airport (fantastic service!!). Our three year old girl was surprised when she found some nice playing toys in the apartment. The beach is very nearby and great for children! I liked the boulevard, where jogging is nice to do. We also went to Valencia nearly every day and our daughter loved the trip on the bus! Carlos gave us some great tips. We had the best paella in town thanks to him and went to the oceanografic, which you MUST see! The only little thing that we didn't like was that the apartment can be a bit noisy but that is not a reason not to come again! We would defenitely recommend this place because it's great for children and parents!!
We zijn blij dat we voor dit appartement hebben gekozen. Voor onze dochter is het fijn dat ze aan het strand lekker kon spelen.Met haar leek het ons fijner om niet midden in de drukke stad te zitten. Wij zijn zelf niet zulke strandliefhebbers (alhoewel het heerlijk is om te gaan joggen over de boulevard!!). We zijn dus bijna elke dag de stad in gegaan en dat ging prima en snel met de bus. De bushalte is vlakbij het appartement en onze dochter vond de busrit telkens geweldig!Carlos (zoon van Vincente) heeft ons zelfs van het vliegveld opgehaald en voor onze dochter lag er al wat speelgoed klaar in het appartement. Leuk hoor! Carlos spreekt heel goed engels en de communicatie verliep heel fijn! Hij gaf ons goede tips en dat heeft opgeleverd dat we de lekkerste paella hebben gegeten op een heel bijzondere plek en met onze dochter naar de oceanografic zijn gegaan! We hebben een dag fietsen gehuurd, dat is echt leuk om te doen. In de droge rivierbedding zijn heel veel speeltuintjes te vinden. Voor kinderen vinden we deze stad heel geschikt! Het enige minpuntje aan het appartement is de gehorigheid. Je hoort veel van de buren (er was een huilende baby die we vaak hoorde) maar dat zou ons er niet van weerhouden om hier weer te logeren! Waarschijnlijk zijn wij dit soort geluiden ook niet zo gewend.En trouwens, oordopjes werken ook prima! Al met al dus een prima plek om te logeren!
