Well, what can i say except where do i start with the compliments? Being a first timer to the wonders of Airbnb accommodation I as many people unaccustomed to this type of arrangement was perhaps a touch apprehensive but that all changed as soon as my colleagues & i stepped out of the taxi. It has been my personal experience that many countries have tried to lay claim to being no 1 for hospitality but i can assure you that there is only one winner in this category. Firstly we met Bea who was so friendly with a similar sense of humour to our own, very warm personality, just smiling & chatting away as if we were friends for years. at this stage she had already gone above & beyond in speaking to the driver to guide him to her location. if that wasn't enough Bea took time out of her own personal schedule to bring us o the local supermarket in order for us to stock up on food for our stay. throughout our time in Hoyo she was so helpful & both she & her partner Gustavo, a through gentleman took myself & my colleagues on a guided tour of the city. They also invited us to their home for dinner which was incredible as we had such fun, amazing risotto & stimulating conversation. Simply put, this couple are amazing people who understand the true meaning of hospitality & friendship. As for the apartment, incredibly beautiful & so clean. It had all the comforts of home form the cute little galley kitchen which had everything needed to cook up a storm to the romantic blaze of the large open stove for those cold November nights. Three large double bedrooms which were so nicely decorated with a neatly tucked away den area in which to study or chill out with a movie. [Miss that space already]. The bathroom was beautifully presented with the extra provision of double sinks. The complex itself was spotless & so quite, 10 mins by foot to the town centre dotted with quaint little coffee shops & restaurants. the next large town is only 15mins by car/bus. Its the perfect base for an easy commute of 40mins to the busy streets of Madrid but with the added bonus of peaceful isolation & restful recuperation in the beautiful municipality of Hoyo de Manzanares upon returning home. The complex also houses tennis courts, basketball/football courts & a large open air pool which in the summer is a fantastic facility for those travelling with children. There is also a local gymnasium is open to non members with a pay as you play policy. Great facility for sporty types on short visits. As for those who like to ramble, there is a local reserve with breathtaking mountain views with beautiful walks along the marked trails. As with any work/pleasure holiday, its location, location, location & this apt ticks all the boxes. Asombroso.
