Solo puedo da gracias tanto a Nannette la dueña, como a Joke de Solinmobiliaria, por la atencion y el buen trato recibido por ellos. Sobre la casa, decir que es perfecta muy acogedora, nos hemos sentido como en nuestra casa, muy bien equipada y con detalles de mucha calidad, no le faltaba de nada y la ubicacion en la urbanizacion increible muy silenciosa y frente a la playa. Sobre el lugar, solo decir que todo es espectacular, playa paradisíaca, muchos bares, restaurantes y supermercados cerca, el entorno espectacular, cerca de la Playa de los Alemanes, Los Caños, Bolonia, increible. Volveremos seguro.

Friendly and helpful hosts that made you feel really welcome. Only 2 (small) downsides - the local dogs bark alot during the night and some of the paths are are little uneven - but that won't spoil your stay! Tarifa is a great little place to explore only 10km away. Enjoy! We did!!!!😎👍
