Left on 05/06/2014 for a stay in April 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 6, 2014Stayed Apr 2014
We stayed in this apartment during the month of april 2014. Very clean,everything we needed was there. It was a 15 minutes walk to the beach and worth every step. there is a supermarket 5 minutes away or one the way from the beach. Both offered very good products and service if you want to cook your own meal. There is also a variety of restaurants to go to.
Diane and Rene - Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you as guests. Falesia Beach is indeed a beautiful sight and as you say worth every step. You were great renters and we would welcome you back anytime.
