“The perfect retreat with pool”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a lovely stay. A beautiful and well equipped villa in the mountains with pool, which the kids loved. Would definitely return.

“Beautiful house in a magical spot”

We had a lovely week here despite the rain, at one point I think we were inside a rain cloud!
House is lovely and very well equipped, quite a long drive up the mountain but worth it for the view.
Local village within walking distance with several good restaurants, shops and bars.

“Excellent, but.....”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

In itself, this is an excellent property: well built, well designed, very clean and comfortable, a particularly good and large outside area. And very private. But - the converse of the privacy - the location is very isolated. I would not describe it as being on the outskirts of the village: it was a 15 minute uphill walk to the edge of the village, and another 10 minutes or so to the shops. Access to the property is via a very steep driveway, with only a small turning circle at the bottom: much manoeuvring necessary! And the last 20 yards is via a very steep gravel path, only for walking on: even a suitcase could nto be rolled down it. Definitely not for anyone with any sort of mobility issues. Minor snags: all the lights are rather dim; there was not a single light that was suitable for reading in the evenings.

Dear Pat,
Thanks for the nice words about our house. We are glad that you liked both the house and the outside area. We have never heard that it was a problem turning the car at the bottom but we recognize that it can be a problem if you have mobility issues walking from the parking area to the entrance. In the spring we will establish a proper concrete stair case to make the access easier.
We will also now provide proper reading lamps. Thanks for your input and suggestions, that is much appreciated.

“Absolutely faboulous! Autumn break of the very best kind.”
Reviewed 4 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Casa Chumbo created the perfect frame for our holiday in Andalusia. Only 45 minutes from the airport, easy to find, remote enough to get our pulse down and to chill, but close enough to the beach, villages, shopping, restaurants, nature walks etc. to never have a dull moment unless we wanted to.

The house itself is fantastic: comfortable, in brilliant taste and super well equipped. My husband is a chef, and usually when we have rented houses, he has missed his tools. Not the case here:-)

The kids loved the house – both because it was big enough for them to get some privacy, but especially because of the pool! We were in the house in early November, and even if the water was a bit fresh, they spend lots of time having fun in the pool. The fact that we could enjoy watching them while sitting on the terrace, enjoying the view of the mountains is the best holiday memory for me.

Karina and Dan, the owners of the house, played a huge role in making us feel comfortable and at home. They are the nicest people to talk to, and they made a huge effort in making us feel happy and helping us have a nice holiday. They are clearly proud of their house and happy about the area and their neighbours, and it meant a lot to them, that we had the same experience.

“Best hot winter holiday in the sun”
Reviewed 4 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful winter holiday in Casa Chumbo, far away from the grey cold weather in Denmark. The weather in January was perfect: 25 degrees and sun sun sun!! We stayed in the wonderful and very well equipped house. The photos are nice but the house in real life is so much better.
The house is open and bright, very stylish, cozy and comfy. The terrace is fantastic! We spent almost our entire holiday out there as there were everything you could want like a big gas grill, outdoor kitchen, nice sofas, dining table, sunbeds and even a shower. The terrace is very nice and cozy and the view is wonderful. It is so nice and quiet. The pool was clean, a little chilly-but good fun!
We booked the house via the internet and we got a detailed travel plan on how to get to the house. We couldn’t get lost. Karina’s suggestions on where to shop, where to rent a car etc. were very useful.
The village is very close by. There are nice restaurants and shops, and not many tourists. It is a nice sleepy village with very friendly people, nice shops where they sell whatever they have in their gardens, fish, olive oil from the village etc.
We walked to the village in 10 minutes and hiked in the mountains from the food of the village. The nature is just breath taking.
We can't wait to get back same time next Winter!
Thanks for a wonderful stay!!

Hi Michael,
We are sincerely sorry that you had that kind of experiences and actually we are quite surprised.
That is the first time we have any complaints at all in the 6 years that we have rented our house out.
We are glad that you liked our house and found it beautiful.
Regarding your 3 complaints:
1. In the solar panel there is an electric back-up system. It only requires that you press the "on"-bottom so you can get hot water.
2. Smell: we don't know what has happened; somebody must have pulled the siphon. It took the plumber 5 minutes to fix it.
3. Not enough electricity: There is underfloor heating in every room, there is air condition in all the room, there is a dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine. In everything is on at the same time, you are right, there is not enough power. But we must say: this is normally not a problem.
4. We can see you gave the cleaning 2 out of 5 stars! We have a professional cleaning team to clean. We always get 5 out of 5 stars as it is very important to me that the house is spotless. The same people that you have contacted 3 times during your stay.
Kind regards
Karina
