Our very first impression upon arrival at Ilene and Dennis ...

ivan & pilar from Chamartín said

Our very first impression upon arrival at Ilene and Dennis place is harmony and elegance. An oasis of order and good taste. A very comfortable ,well equipped and nicely decorated place full of small details that made us feel very much at home. The arrival documentation is excellent which allowed us within minutes, to become acquainted with the condo functioning and the area. The place is nicely located. Whether to walk downtown, take river walks or drive to near by Tarpon Pointe for a bit of action ( sunsets, happy hrs, live music and dance) or simply lay back and watch the gorgeous manatee river from the comfort of the living room or terrace. Excellent beaches are near such as Anna Maria island, or if you drive only a bit further siesta key or the wonderful beaches around St. Peters burg ( especial mention of Fort De Soto park) . By the way, the Dali museum in SP is fantastic. Many thanks Ilene and Dennis for your flexibility and good nature as human being. A highly recommended exchange.

What we said about ivan & pilar's house:

We had a delightful stay in Ivan and Pilar's Madrid apartment. The apartment is well appointed with a modern kitchen, shower and laundry. The building is staffed with a helpful concierge. The apartment is just steps away from the Metro which makes access to any part of Madrid possible. Within a few steps are grocery stores, fruit and vegetable markets, cafes and restaurants. The neighborhood is quiet and yet so close to everything a visitor to Madrid could want. Ivan and Pilar were so easy to communicate with and provided everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. Due to easy access to all forms of transportation, we ventured out of the city (with recommendations from Ivan and Pilar) and visited Salamanca, Avila and Toledo via train. Their apartment is also so easily accessed from the airport. The Metro is available at the airport and their apartment is only 15 minutes away, without even changing metro lines. We found September to be an absolutely perfect month. Days were sunny and warm and evenings were lovely for outdoor dining. Hats off to our wonderful hosts, Ivan and Pilar.
