Everything was exactly like promised. My husband and I spent 10 nights here and just loved it. Plenty of space for the two of us since there was an extra bedroom and bath. Preparing meals was quite easy as the kitchen has everything including a lettuce spinner! But of course we ate one meal out per day. The fish was so wonderful and fresh, it could not be resisted.
Did I mention that the linens were of the highest quality?
Location was great. Convenient to town but also for day trips around the area.
Did not use the pool, but it was crystal clear.
Thank you Peter for sharing your home with us and also for the generous "starter kit".
Our family had a very enjoyable week at Marona - the apartment was equipped with everything you'd need for your stay, nicely located near the town and beach as well as the walking path to the neighboring beach (spectacular scenery along the way). Peter and Lucy went out of their way to ensure we had all the appropriate information both before the trip and once we were there: they've really thought about everything and can't do enough to ensure your stay hassle-free!
We stayed in Marona for 11 nights in September and really enjoyed the apartment. It really is a home away from home with a nice spacious balcony and every room is of a generous size with a nice modern feel but still retaining homely touches also nice walk in showers(2) and all exceptionally clean. Peter and Lucy provided a great service with lots of useful tips and advice on our trip there, we have rented several apartments over the past few years and we think this was up there as number one for quality, value and the service they provided - we would absolutely recommend Sant Feliu and their beautiful apartment.
We stayed in this apartment for 4 weeks during peak summer 2018 and it was perfect for our needs (2 adults and 2 young children). The lovely town of Sant Feliu De Guixols is literally a short walk down the hill and you are in the centre of it all. Outstanding beach, bars, restaurants, shops, pharmacy, fresh market, fish market, bakery, everything you could want. We particularly liked the fish market in the town square and did daily trips to get fresh bread from the bakery.
Peter and Lucy were extremely attentive, made sure that our stay was hassle free and went out of their way to keep us informed of any local activities and events. Carmen came in once a week to clean the apartment which is very well equipped. We enjoyed the use of the paellara and cooked many an awesome paella on the balcony. We were made to feel very welcome....
The apartment is perfectly located when exploring Costa Brava. We explored new beaches and places almost every day and when we came “home” we just strolled down the hill to the wonderful little city or just enjoyed the pool or the view from the balcony.
The apartment has everything you need and it feels very spacious with two big bedrooms, two bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. There are beach umbrellas, beach chairs, towels, cable TV, better wifi then back home, etc, etc. You will not miss anything.
Even if you reach the city center and a beach within a 5 min walk we recommend to hire a car in order to fully explore the beautiful Costa Brava. There is a parking space in the building, it is a bit tricky to park the first time but is absolutely no problem (perhaps you should avoid to rent the biggest SUV though…).
We have travelled with our family 2-3 times per year the last 10 years and Peter and Lucy are by far the best, most ambitious and thoughtful hosts we have ever had met. You really feel that they put their heart into making your holiday amazing!
We rate this holiday as a 6 on a 5-degree scale.
