The apartment has two good sized bedrooms and one bathroom with a bath with shower over. The living/dining room/kitchen is of a good size and is very well equipped. For more than two people in the winter the living room might be a bit small but for a couple it was ideal. In the summer, when most time would be spent outside, it would be more than adequate for the five people the apartment sleeps. The views from the living room and from the terrace are spectacular. The large terraces go around three sides of the house so you can follow the sun all day. There are good quality sunloungers and garden furniture. There is a small pool (which we didn't try in February...) which would be great for cooling off in the warmer months. The surrounding area is stunning and there are lots of great walks and drives within a short distance, as well as some truly beautiful beaches. The owners, who live in the rest of the attached house, and their two lovely dogs are very welcoming, friendly and helpful without being intrusive. No negative aspects at all.Excellent fast wifi. Highly recommended.

The villa itself has great amenities for large families. The outdoor covered area is a really relaxing area to dine and chill in, and the pool had continual all day use. It's sunny, private and surrounded by lovely tress and plants. The villa was very comfortable & clean, the pool was eventually after we requested the pump be switched on. A coat of paint would make the surrounding wall in the garden look a lot more attractive, but this didn't spoil our lovely break. A very relaxing retreat for all. Dolo was very accommodating and made herself available to answer all our needs when required. The village is a short walk away, with a lovely little market selling everything you need and lovely fresh produce. The restaurants were all very Spanish which we loved. We tried 3 of the 5 in the village. The children were welcomed in each of them.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Comfortable and well equipped house with great views from the roof terrace and bedroom - we could lie in bed and see the sun rising over the sea. Roof terrace proved to be either too hot or too cool in October and could probably benefit from more shade, but I'm sure it would be very pleasant on a summer's evening. Property very clean and well maintained with lots of kitchen equipment. We didn't find bikes, which were listed, but this wasn't a problem as San Jose is quite hilly. Everything else was as described and the owners were in contact beforehand ensuring our arrival was problem free. Location good - minutes walk from the centre of town. San Jose is a pleasant little town although pretty quiet at this time of the year - but it did get busier towards the week end. I would recommend the Italian restaurant on the main street. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed swimming at the wild beaches around the area. The surrounding scenery is quite stark and desert like, but I suppose that is a result of always being hot and sunny.
