The beach house is just beautiful and the perfect setting to explore the park...if you make it that far... Myself and partner plus grandparents and 3 children stayed for a week and as other reviews mentioned, found it difficult to think of anything better than strolling to the beach and enjoying the April sun on the fantastic roof terrace! Saying that, we did make it to mini Hollywood which was great fun and the Tabernas desert stunning to see. Also worth sticking your trainers on for a scramble up from Agua Armaga's beach to the old mine/tunnel for amazing views as well as a scramble down to playa Los muertos up the road with some of the clearest waters I've seen. The town is peaceful and beautiful and we really fell in love with the place. The house was a brilliant location to take our 5 year old and 22 month old twins being literally a minute from the beach. It was so easy to just stroll down there with them without having to pack up a million things and they could have spent the whole day playing with the sparkly sand. The house is kitted out with lots of creature comforts and things for the kids. It's beautifully decorated and maintained and it was a real delight to make such a stylish home there for a week. It was a pleasure to be surrounded by so many of Matthew Weirs lovely ceramics inside the house as well as enjoying them in the beautiful tiles of the main square just seconds down the road. Our little ones loved eating their ice creams there after dinner as they watched with interest the local kiddies showing off their Spanish football skills. I feel lucky to have stumbled across casa nana and really hope to visit again and explore the area some more...Thanks for sharing your beautiful home from home Ellie and family!

The accommodation is clean and well equipped and the double bed very comfortable. The apartment has a private terrace with mountain views as well as a shared terrace with pool. We did many walks in the area and the beaches are stunning. I would definitely recommend this apartment to others.
