María is the owner of this beautiful apartment. She is very fond of it and keeps it careful because it brings to her wonderful memories: the summers here with hes parents when she was a girl and a teenager, the fishing trips with his father’s boat, catching sea urchins on the rocks when the Promenade wasn’t yet built, her friends of the “summer”, etc.
Although she likes to escape from the city sometime and come to enjoy the sea and play golf in the nearby courts, now she cannot do it frequently. That is why she decided to share this nice apartment with people from all over the world.
