Kitchen is simple with only two hob rings and no cooker. Otherwise well equipped with kettle, fridge, toaster etc. Only slight disappointment was that the double bed room was very small with little storage space. The twin room was a lovely space. No outdoor space available but the village is friendly and there are plenty of bars to sit in to watch the sunsets. Owner friendly and helpful.

                                                                                                      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.

La casa es amplia y cómoda, y tiene dos terrazas, una a la misma altura del resto de las habitaciones y otra arriba, impresionante. Está situada muy cerca (andando a 5 minutos) del centro de San José y la playa, por lo que no es necesario coger el coche para nada si no quieres. La situación de San José es perfecta para hacer excursiones y ver todo el parque natural, las playas salvajes, el desierto de Tabernas y Sorbas, la ciudad de Almería y todos los pueblos tan lindos de los alrededores. Dolo nos trató muy bien, e incluso nos compró una cafetera nueva ya que la que había era muy pequeña para todos.
