Owner was very helpful in suggesting day trips and restaurants in the area. Rental agency in Zahara was very pleasant to deal with too. Home is immaculately kept and had everything we needed (really nice touch that they provided all essential toiletries and laundry items so that we did not have to buy them on our holiday). The beach was beautiful and clean and we enjoyed Mojitos at a nice little beach restaurant 5 minutes away from the house. There was also a nice bakery with grocery items attached to the complex that made it convenient in the mornings. Would definitely recommend this home and Zahara in general. Much nicer and peaceful than our stays in Costa del Sol!

Great Escapes and our chalet, Moments in particular, was wonderful. From our welcome to the lovely setting in well maintained and cared for grounds, everything was perfect. Moments has a very big terrace, with a quality barbecue and everything required for preparing and enjoying a meal overlooking the local beaches across to Morocco. The setting is very special and we loved the sounds of birds and just being surrounded by nature. We walked, talked and rested. The bed was comfortable and big. No wifi was a big plus as we put our phones away. The busy town of Tarifa was full of cafés with wifi anyway and it was good to go in and experience the Easter spectacles but to get back to the peace and tranquillity of Moments. We can thoroughly recommend this lovely chalet at Great Escapes.
