The apartment was clean and well-equipped. Warren was especially helpful with IT issues we experienced! Julie provided us with helpful tips as we made our way to Seveille, Jerez and the white towns in the area. There are many fruit trees on the property...unfortunately for us the fruit was still ripening. We did appreciate the bottle of wine that Julie had waiting for us. The property is at the edge of the village and it was convenient to walk to the main square where the stores and restaurants were located. Thank you, Julie and Warren!

                                                                                        5 of 5
                                                                                        The property is a perfect mix of quiet relaxation but also close to some amazing sights (Ronda, Zahara). It was very hot late August but breezy in the hills and the saltwater pool was perfect. Good for adults as well as our toddler as there are shallow steps leading in deeper. What was notable was the cleanliness of the property as well as the amenities e.g. the kitchen had everything we needed, and the playroom was a bonus. We didnt have to think about anything! The TV didn't have a lot of channels and the wifi was spotty but that, frankly, only enhanced the holiday!! We were in touch with the owners once or twice and they were super responsive and helpful. They even forwarded a camera lens we'd left behind which arrived intact. I would highly recommend this place for a stress-free family vacation. Thank you so much Nic and Rob!

                                                                                        5 of 5
                                                                                        A big thank you to Pepa the owner who always responded quickly and was helpful. We spent 2 weeks at the property and found plenty to do to pass the time in the area with 2 teenage children. The property is a 3 bedroom end of terrace with 2 bathrooms and a small kitchen which is suitable for its purpose. As the house is in the town it can a bit noisy (especially the very efficient early rubbish collection service 7 days a week) if you have the windows open which often you needed to do as the property does not have airconditioning. Fans do help but could do with one more as 2 for 3 bedrooms led to interesting bargaining between the children. There is parking in front of the house at the bottom of the stairs but it is a busy little street opposite the doctors so other than loading and unloading it is easier to leave in the free car park a 2 minute walk away. Whist in Zahara we went canoeing and the Discovery Centre on the Reservoir also does loads of other activities. Santiago at the Playito did a wonderful horse riding trek. Note Santiago does not speak English so if you cannot speak at least Pigeon spanish get someone to book for you after that speaking horse was fine. The Playito itself was not our cup of tea but if you are going to give it a visit avoid weekends like the plague as it is just too busy (we drove past one day) With young children though it is a safe environment. We enjoyed using the public pool in Zahara which has good grounds or if you want a pool with a view go the Grazalema public pool or pop to Hotel Tadeos in Zahara for a drink and they may let you use there infinity pool for a dip. We had a great holiday and will remeber our time in Zahara for all the right reasons so Thank You
