Fantastic views from our balcony coupled with complete peace and quiet, all within the astonishingly beautiful southern Spanish countryside. Connie and Jim are perfect hostes and made us both feel very much at home from start to finish.

The correspondence with owner was easy and all questions answered timely. Instructions received for the house were easy to read and follow and I had them in plenty of time before my visit. The location of the house is literally minutes from the motorway on easy to drive roads and it's in a lovely area with amazing views. The bigger areas of Vera, Garrucha and Huercal-Overa can be reached within 30 ish minutes and have loads of supermarkets and shops to chose from. The house itself is beautiful, very clean and well equipped, we had everything we needed for our stay here and although there was only 4 of us it can easily accommodate many more. The reversible air conditioning came in very handy at night as it still got a bit on the chilly side and it heated all the rooms quickly. The living room was very comfortable and even had sky tv channels to watch, not that we were inside very much. The kitchen was very clean and had everything we needed including a large dishwasher which was a blessing on a lazy week in the sun. There were 2 seating areas inside the house so more than enough space for everyone. The bedrooms were large, enough storage space and the beds and pillows were really comfy and towels were provided. Both bathrooms were very clean and the showers were fab. Outside space is just great with amazing views we used the rear terrace the most as it was virtually wind free and had the glorious sunshine most of the afternoon, there was plenty of outside comfortable seating. The pool is lovely albeit cold in March but not that cold to stop my 82 yard old gran having a couple of dips during the hotter days. The pool will be a godsend in mid summer or if you are visiting with children. The pool man / gardener visited everyday and was friendly and certainly not intrusive in anyway. We were looking to have a relaxing week in the sun and this is exactly what we got and the house was just as the pictures look and a great choice. I would highly recommend this property to anyone else and can't thank the owners enough for allowing us to use it. They have clearly put in a lot of effort in maintaining it and making sure there is everything you need, it really is a home from home and suited our needs perfectly.
