The holiday accommodation Ibaia (which means “the river” in Basque) in San Sebastian gets its name from the Urumea River, as it is just what one can see by leaning out of the balconies of this exclusive vacation apartment. The Ibaia vacation apartment is located on the fourth floor of a building with a lift, building which was restored just a few years ago (2006). It is a typical building from the early years of the 20th century, with sandstone front, bay windows and balconies with breathtaking views over the river.
Just on the other side of the river, opposite the apartment, we find the two most emblematic buildings in San Sebastian: the Maria Cristina Hotel and the Victoria Eugenia Theatre, and next to them the famous Boulevard, a pedestrian avenue which separates the Old Town from the city centre. Besides, just 100 metres away from the apartment, next to Zurriola Beach, is the Kursaal Exhibition and Congress Centre, another symbol of this marvellous city.
The holiday apartment is arranged throughout 70 square metres and has two spacious double bedrooms. Both bedrooms have single beds, although in the main bedroom these are wider, 105 cms. while in the second bedroom the beds are standard, 90 cms. wide.
Between both bedrooms there is a bathroom fitted with a shower cubicle.
The lounge is a bright and pleasant space, thanks to its well-cared decoration and the breathtaking views that can be enjoyed from the large windows.
The dining area is situated by the bay window. It is a real delight, on the good weather days, have breakfast or dinner here, with the window open so that we can take pleasure of the amazing views. The kitchen, situated next to the lounge, is perfectly equipped with everything you may need to prepare delicious meals during your holidays in San Sebastian.
The holiday accommodation Ibaia also offers high-speed Wi-Fi Internet system. This apartment doesn't have a garage and the parking situation in the area is difficult and expensive. If you're coming to San Sebastian by car we can reserve for you a parking spot at a nearby car park when you make your apartment reservation.
Additional amenities include: extinguisher, microwave-oven, ironing set, close to grocery stores, complete set of kitchen utensils, juice-squeezer, wooden floors, kitchen washing kit available, double glazing, lift, bathroom amenities available, electric blinds, baby crib & chair for free, next to the beach, parking under request, sheets, heating, mixer, shower, video entry phone, reinforced front door, sheets & towels changed weekly, italian coffee maker....Read more

We had never been to San Sebastián and now we can't wait to go back. The apartments location is perfect, right on the river a short distance to the ocean. Everything we wanted to do was a short walk away, just far enough that it was quiet at night. The apartment itself was very clean and showed pride of ownership. It was beautifully furnished and looked like a suite in a high end hotel. The man who met us was very accomadating and gave us some useful information about San Sebastián. Overall, I don't know how our stay could have been better.

Hace muchos años que visito Donosti y, sin duda, el mejor alojamiento en que he estado. Siempre había estado en hoteles, pero la libertad que te da un apartamento no tiene precio.
El apartamento se encuentra muy bien ubicado, con unas preciosas vistas y está muy bien equipado. En la cocina no falta ni un detalle por si te animas a ir al mercado de la Bretxa y prepararte la comida!
Sin duda volveré y lo recomiendo al 100x100.

Our visit to San Sebastian was really great ! What a lovely spot. It was enhanced no doubt by the fact that we rented the Ibaia apartment. The location of the apartment was perfect-- within walking distance of anywhere we wanted to go. The apartment was nicely decorated, well appointed and immaculately clean . The views from the windows were spectacular. I would highly recommend this apartment and hope to return someday.

This was a beautiful apartment with great views, set overlooking the river close to its mouth with the sea. beautifully furnished and to a high standard. Feelfree rentals were a great company to deal with. We enjoyed just watching the waves come up the river. Was a nice apartment for having meals too as there was plenty of space. Top marks.

Alojamiento muy recomendable. Muy bien situado, a 2 minutos del casco antiguo y con unas vistas fabulosas...
El apartamento está muy bien equipado, electrodomésticos, vajilla, consumibles... Muy confortable y nuevo.
El personal de la agencia es muy amable y atento.
No olvideis alquilar el parquing que ofrecen con el apartamento, aparcar en esta zona, además de ser carísimo en según qué horas del dia es imposible!!
Ah!! Y no olvideis el paraguas!! Que los jardines esten tan verdes y bonitos no es casualidad...
