We stay in this spacious apartment for 3 weeks, the location is perfect, close to the beach, with large swimming pool.
The apartment is in local private residence, with security gate and guards for 24 hours, feel quite safe here. The apartment is clean, with big balcony for lounge and rest.
The beach is relaxing and children friendly, with some restaurants and bars.
We enjoyed our stay.
We stayed in Arif's 2 bedroom apartment which was very roomy , comfortable, was well equipped apart from a toaster .the apartment is on a private complex close to the beach swimming pool ,shop and restaurant, Unfortunately neither the shop or restaurant were open as the season does not appear to start until the end of June the pool was sort of half open though you could not go in the water for the same reason.. There was a restaurant and mini market about 400m along the beach which were open Restaurant very good very Italian menu though if you asked for it you could get very good Albanian (website hidden) the season had not really started the resort and the beach were very quiet during the week but busy at the weekend. Not a lot of English spoken Italian would be a more useful language to have.The resort is about 20K away from the nearest large town Durres We would therefore advice renting a car as there did not appear to be any public transport system linking the resort to the main road which was about 4k away Otherwise you have to somehow get hold of a (website hidden) a result of this comparative isolation we both had a very relaxing holiday. The local people were very helpful and once we had found some one who could speak English Gati the chef at the restaurant along the beach,so we managed to get a ride into Durres and also back to the Air port in Tirana at a reasonable cost. Arif was not around So his father met us at the bus station in durres and took us to the resort and showed us around the apartment and the resort and was very helpful We were rather confused as to which of the 2 apartments Arif has available to rent in the area ,we would be staying in and were shown both, the single bedroom one was rather dingy and because of the lanuage problem were not sure which one he wanted us to stay in but needless to say choose the more comfortable one.Though it was AirBnB no breakfast was supplied and it did not appear to have been totally prepared for guests though was not untidy
To conclude we had a very relaxing holiday Resort was rather isolated though in season there would be more facilities available.Language is a problem, we probably should have hired a car and braved the Albanian roads which were probably not as bad as we were led to believe they were.People were very helpful and friendly and at no point did we feel not at ease or threatened which again does away with some of the myths that exist about Albania in the west
Apartment was Ideal for what I was looking for, the owner added extra touches which I thought were really nice. Really nice place to stay in.
The place was clean and his the person who waited to give me the key was very friendly as was Arif. It took me a little bit to find the place and she waited to be sure I could find the place. It looked exactly like the picture. It was a last minute rental for me, his response was quick and I was able to secure the rental without any issue. It was technically central in the city but about 1/2 hour walk from the place which is formally known as the city center. I walked it on several occasions and it was not to bad. The neighbors were quiet and the people at the local shops were friendly. It is off a main road by about a block so you just walk to the main road and straight into the city center. The only issue I had was the individual who gave me the key wanted to take a picture of my passport and in 30 years of traveling no one has ever asked to do that. It was small compared to similar properties I looked at that cost the same amount and were closer to the city center but this was fine for my last minute needs. I would consider staying here again but I do think the price was a bit high. Again, the host was quick, friendly and helpful. The place was clean and right off the main road. I would recommend it for these reasons.
The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked for self-catering and it was in a good location.
It was a shame that there was no coffee machine but Arif's mother made sure that there was plenty of tea and instant coffee in the cupboad for us.
Apartment with space (convenient for three persons) very well located in the center of the city, just near the main place of Skopje. Kitchen well equipped and good Internet connection.
I have been welcome by the mother of Arif, who is very kind and available to provide eventual help.
Very nice and clean apartment, everything is like on pictures, it is very good equipped. Apartment is like 3 minutes of walk from main square where is Alexander the Great statue and has also very nice view at the city.
Under the apartment there is all you need for quick doing: small market, bakery and exchange office. Across the street You can easily find taxi, but really everything important in Skopje is reachable by walk from this apartment (Old City, Main Square, Old Bridge, Fortress, Filip II Stadium,...)
Arif and his mother were great hosts, unfortunately we were here for only 2 days.
Do not search for other, this is Your place for Skopje accommodation! ;)
Arif's place was very central and we (my girlfriend and I) stayed there for two nights. The apartment is as advertised and we were very comfortable. The place was clean and everything worked. We had a car and we were able to park right outside the apartment. I recommend the place for anyone wanting to stay close to the city centre.
While I was only there one night, Arif couldn't have done more if he tried. He is very easy going and willing to help wherever he can. Check in and out times were very flexible, and he arranged a fantastic taxi driver to take me to the airport. It was all very easy and done without fuss. Highly recommended.
I cannot say enough good and positive things about Arif.
He responded promptly to my request for accommodations.
He met us at the bus station and took us to the apartment, which was indeed excellent in every respect.
He arranged a guide for us for two days of sightseeing in the area.
He extended our stay when we had problems scheduling another location. He suggested restaurants, locations for banks, and places to visit.
He speaks wonderful English; he has perfect manners; he practices polite, courteous adaptations.
We could not have had a more superior person to host us. I give him my highest recommendation. He is distinguished and distinctive in all that he does..
