The house is in a great location, out of the bustle of the town but only a short walk to some wonderful restaurants. There are lots of water activities on your doorstep and only an hour from amazing Granada.

Management response:

Thanks for your great review. For once we've had the opportunity of behaving like holidaymakers too, as all the family are out. We've spend 3 glorious relaxing days at different beaches and feasted at the beach restaurants!

We had a lovely time in Sheila's house, it is in a very small quiet complex with a surprisingly large pool with an amazing view, we spent several very happy afternoons there soaking up the sun. The pool is not heated but even I managed to get in for a swim! The house is very comfortable with fantastic views from...

Management response:

I'm glad that you enjoyed yourselves checking out the bars and restaurants - we enjoy having a beer in the chiringuitos on the beach, but then in the evenings it's always lovely to go into the old town, and if...

My husband and I have returned here as we had the best stay last time we came a year ago. The house is spacious, clean and had everything there we needed. We went to the pool each day and also the beach which is very close by at the bottom of the hill. The views from the house overlook the...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind comments and well done for spotting the dolphins this time - I obviously need to be a bit more watchful when I'm taking breakfast on the terrace! We look forward to your next booking with us.
