We stayed 5 nights at Casa Karen in Casa Surf. After arriving in Barcelona and traveling around for a week it was great to rest in a quiet beach Casa for 5 nights. Casa surf was spacious and provided all the amenities we needed to be able to make ourselves morning coffee and light meals. Juani was friendly and even... More

We stayed in this beautiful 2-bedroom apartment for two weeks in September. The apartment has everything you need, not just basics, so cooking is no problem at all. However, the local restaurants are great too. The furnishings and equipment are all great quality and the level of comfort second to none with a lovely sofa and comfy cushions, full size... More

Great 8days in Casas Karen 2. Great fun and safe for young family. Lovely balance of house privacy, shared space in garden and openness of nearby hills and beach. Weather warm enough in Feb! Car hire allows exploring of nearby cities.

Casas Karen is a quiet place, where people can relax peacefully (the only problem you could have are loud neighbours, who do not understand the point of the place). The little apartments have been built in the typical style of the region and you have everything you need inside, even if you get a small one. The loud and crowded... More

I had a lovely time, staying in relaxing surroundings with great views. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy nature, culture, great restaurants and night life too. The accommodation was beautifully arranged and stylish and would suit people who want something a little bit different from the run of the mill accommodation.

Came here this time last year. Stayed in the smaller chozita for 2 weeks. Had a very chilled lovely time and hardly went anywhere except beach and bars. Beaches were lovely and local bars and restaurants good. Farmers market on Saturdays great for local produce. This time trying a studio apartment

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casas Karen is a unique getaway located on one of Spain’s most beautiful and less discovered coastlines: the Costa de la Luz, which is named for its extraordinary light. We are located in the small beach town of Los Canos de Meca, just off the site where the Battle of Trafalgar took place in 1805.Casas Karen pays tribute to life on the Costa de la Luz long before the tourists arrived comprising a collection of chozas (traditional, thatched straw houses) that were typical to the region in the eighteenth century, as well as converted farm buildings and one beach apartment, scattered throughout our untamed, native gardens.We hope you’ll find it a place to rest, rewind and recharge and get a taste of the real Costa de la Luz. ... more   less
