Beachfront Luxury Complex With Tropical Gardens

About the space

Welcome to your home away from home, a modern and cosy 2-bedroom apartment with private parking located on a 2nd floor (accessible also with an elevator) in a luxury gated complex just steps away from the beach! The urbanisation features lush tropical gardens with waterfalls and several pools for you to enjoy. Located next-door to Nikki Beach and 5-star Hotel Don Carlos and just a few minutes walking from friendly neighbourhood cafes, bars and shops, you have everything you need in close vicinity.

The apartment features two bedrooms (1 queen, 1 king size bed), a fully equipped kitchen, living room & dining area with a chaise lounge sofa that can accommodate an extra guest or child if needed, 2 bathrooms and a terrace with additional dining table. The apartment has been fully renovated to the highest standard and features all comforts needed for a well-deserved stay.

The living space features a 55” smart TV with access to Netflix and a good selection of international TV channels. In the kitchen you have access to a washer and dryer, a capsule coffee machine, a toaster and kettle and you will find a hair dryer in the master bathroom and complimentary amenities. We also always make sure you have access to some fresh bottles of water, coffee and tea on your arrival so you don’t need to rush to the shops straight away! There is also a seasonal on-site restaurant and bar at the property for your convenience right next to the main pool area!

We have put a lot of love and effort into designing this comfortable space for our guests and want to make sure you have the most memorable and fantastic time. The apartment also has wifi. We also provide a digital detox box to place your phones in to allow you to unplug – enjoy a selection of board games we have left behind for you or browse the library of thoughtfully chosen books for a literature adventure. Unwind on the cosy outdoor terrace and enjoy the sounds of surrounding nature.

You are also in an easy reach to several golf courses, there are 2 fitness centres, a luxury spa and tennis courts at a walking distance from the apartment that you can pay to gain access. Nikki Beach is next door, and you can access the beach & sea directly though the gardens.

Please note that the restaurant, bar and pool area are closed during the winter season and typically operate between the months of April – October both months inclusive.
